Agarth is an NPC in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

DescriptionEdit

"Once, I was Agarth the Unyielding, the Blade of Avgrunn. I wrestled the Kollossae priestess and declined knighthood by the High King of the Fae. I was a hero of men! But that wasn't enough for me. I joined the Fateweavers, hoping to find a way to conquer destiny itself. Turns out Fate is the one thing I couldn't fight."

DetailsEdit

Once known across Amalur as the Blade of Avgruun, Agarth was renowned for his exceptional courage and strength. With each victory, word of his combat prowess spread throughout the Faelands. Agarth had wealth, power, and prestige. King Titarion even offered him a title of knight when Agarth slew the Dream-Eater of Amaura. But, more than a decade ago, Agarth retired his blade, shocking those who knew him best. Offering little explanation, he gave away the riches he had earned and joined the Fateweaver order.

Agarth had discovered that he possessed the gift of foresight. Unfortunately, his insight into Fate brought him troubling visions. He turned to the bottle for refuge, falling from his former glory into obscurity and anonymity. Although Agarth now hides behind the haze of drink, those who look close will see a man whose greatness can still return...

In-gameEdit

Agarth is one of the key characters in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. You first meet Agarth after you exit the tower where during your conversation you find out that you have no Fate and you are able to freely change it (allowing the Fateless One to Fate Shift), also there is a chance to "persuade" him to give you extra help.

After he tries to read your Fate and fails he sends you to another more skilled Fateweaver named Arden. He reappears in Arden's Hut, where he decides to send you to Dellach-a sacred place for the Fateweavers.

After the events in Dellach, Agarth becomes an essential ally in fighting the battle against the Tuatha.

LocationEdit

In the beginning, he is first encountered along the player's natural course to Gorhart.

Later, when he is to be met with in Didenhil, he can be found there as such.

In between The Coming Storm and The Great General he will remain in the Court of Summer.

NotesEdit

  • His sword is a slightly scaled-up version of Dragonfang.
  • Agarth was meant to die by the hands of an Ettin in Dellach and be turned into stew, but the Fateless One saved his life and instead ended the Ettin's.

Main Quest EndingEdit

Agarth will visit the Fateless One when he or she wakes from resting in the Orbocant, in the room once reserved for General Tilera. He will not believe it if the Fateless One mentions Tirnoch. He will mention that he can no longer read fate at all. However, that does not seem to apply when one attempts to purchase fateweaving services from him or from any other Fateweaver. He will remain in the Orbocant indefinitely.

Criminal ImmunityEdit

Even if the Fateless One chooses to become a violent criminal, any weapon the Fateless One attempts to swing or launch at Agarth will simply pass harmlessly through him.

QuotesEdit

Thanks for giving an old man another chance. It's good to know I've got a future again, and even better not to know what it is.
when asked about himself, after saving his life
Whoever that Alyn Shir is, I don't think she's our enemy. If she had wanted us dead, she could have killed us while we were weakened. But she's still trouble. Reminds me of a dark elf who left me half-naked and tied to a barghest, once. Now, those were the days.
when asked about Alyn Shir
Everyone thinks the immortal Fae are enigmas, but they've got it all wrong. The Fae are simple, far simpler than mortals: They never change. Even when their bodies die, they reform again, often years later.
when asked about the Fae
We are all threads in the tapestry of fate: measured, woven, and cut according to a great plan. Fateweavers undertake the task of reading those threads. Our title always was a bitter lie, since we have no control over how that tapestry is woven. But you do. And when a Fateweaver looks at your place in the weave, we see only the shapes of what you may choose to become.
when asked about Fateweavers
Hugues was always an odd one. Curious and determined as any of his kind, sure. He never shut up about his work. But he always knew what was important. He didn't worry about dying, as long as he knew he'd get the work done.
when asked about Fomorous Hugues
The Niskaru are hideous creatures of chaos and corruption. They hated the Erathi, but unlike them, the Niskaru still stalk our world. Thankfully, they've mostly been driven back from the Faelands, but you still find a few lurking deep underground.
when asked about Niskaru
Ah, the warm and welcoming Fae of the Summer Court... They were the ones who welcomed man, Alfar, and gnome into the Faelands. You'd hardly realize the Tuatha are the same sort of creature.
when asked about the Summer Court
The Crystal War, they've been calling it. Ten years ago, the Winter Fae turned violent and attacked us in force, calling themselves the Tuatha Deohn. They say it's their sacred duty to cleanse the mortals from their lands. Naturally, the humans and Alfar who live here aren't so happy with that plan. It's been going back and forth for years. Where there's war, there's soldiers nervous about their Fate. And that's where I come in.
when asked about The War
The Tuatha aren't like any Fae I've ever known. They're cruel, bloodthirsty, and savage. Why, they're practically human.

After The Coming Storm:

Gadflow was just some trumped up Fae who started hearing voices, I gather. But a crazy with an army is still a threat, sure enough.

You know where you stand with a gnome. They're always so focused on their work, or research, or what have you that they've got no time for lies. Shame they try to stay out of fights. Much as we could use their help in the war, staying neutral is about the only way they can stay safe.
when asked about gnomes
Strange crystal, Prismere -- it's normally a shade of blue, but when you treat it and charge it with magic, it turns blood red.

He once offered me an honorary knighthood after I slayed the Dream-Eater of Amaura. He was quite gracious when I turned it down.
when asked about Titarion
You know the Summer Court in Ysa? Well, the Winter Court are their darker siblings. They're not evil, but they're definitely not nice.
when asked about the Winter Court
Beautiful city, isn't it? You can see why they don't like letting most mortals in -- even the best of us make it look like a mess by comparison.
