Well... you see... I don't think the moderators will appreciate an honest answer... but it was entirely consensual and mostly her ideas...

I liked the quest, but it did make wish that we got a sword, with it's own soul, not simply a human one meaning there would be no reason to release it. Though I suppose no one would use any other weapon if there was such a unique blade.

involving a whetstone, sparks, and a heated exchange

 

 

would love Modwyr's critical hit cackle as an MP3 I could use for a phone alert, Allegra is a favorite voice actor

I might consider keeping the sword as is if the voice wouldn't be so obnoxious and irritating. As it stands, I always release the soul and keep the sword. Works great for a tank with the immunity it provides and I almost always roleplay good characters so it's perfect.

I love love LOVED this quest. Modwyr is a follower/companion in every respect, often even more so than the sidekicks, and her “personal quest” was heartbreaking. The choice of what to do with her has been one of the hardest quest choices so far.

Wait, so if you release Modwyr's soul the sword itself still keeps all its powers?

Doing Modwyr's quest was kind of a bitter pill as a Devoted.

Yes. The description is kind of sad though. Even though it was probably the good choice to give the sword back, I couldn't give the sword up. It worked too well alongside Duskfall, and it would have hurt my build (dual wield devoted swashbuckler) not to have the extra attack speed. Modwyr, Duskfall, and Hel Beckoning are the three best swords in the game, Hel Beckning isn't great in a dual wield build though, it doesn't synergies well it's better for a one handed, devoted build.

I kept her soul to talk to her.

But that laugh pretty much every combat makes me regret it ever since :/

Modwyr is my watcher's best friend. There is no way she would release the soul or give the sword back to Yngfirth. That said, I did feel a little bad about it because the sword clearly preferred its former owner and had to be convinced to stay with the watcher.

Is it weird that I'm more emotionally conflicted about the outcome of this side-quest than that of the main quests in both games?  ;(

Just a matter of perspective, I guess. 

 

Modwyr's a jerk. but an innocent jerk who doesn't know her origins and is trying to make the most of her extremely limited existence. 

What you decide goes, because no one else cares.

 

Unlike the deadfire/eothas situation where seemingly everyone wants an outcome.
