Soul Sacrifice

Avalon Pacts are a great way to gain extra offerings or practice against a wide variety of Archfiends. They are also the quests you will be completing when you go online so here's a quick reference of the first three acts.

Avalon Pacts Chapters 1-3

Avalon Pacts are a series of quests unrelated to the main story. They present a great way to gain new offerings and essences if you hit a wall in the difficulty of the main story and are also the quests you will take on when you dive into Soul Sacrifice's multiplayer mode. Most of the Avalon Pacts are standard phantom quests where you will be tasked with killing X amount of monsters or an archfiend but occasionally you will be given unique objectives:

  • Exploration Pact. Use your Mind's Eye to uncover Soul and Life Essences scattered around the battlefield and collect them to complete the pact.
  • Hidden Pact. These are the entries in the journal that are whited out and missing. You will use your Mind's Eye to navigate a foggy battlefield and collect the scattered memories to reconstruct the quest. Completing these will reward you with the unique Chest of Fortune Offerings.
  • Slaughter Pact. This is much like the usual phantom quest but you cannot complete it until you sacrifice enough slain monsters. In the case of an Archfiend, you will fail the quest unless you sacrifice them.
  • Salvation Pact. The opposite of slaughter pacts, you will be tasked with saving the souls of monsters or an Archfiend to complete it.
  • Personal Battle. These are the rarest of type of Avalon Pact and will pit you against a sorcerer assassin. These fights play out much like the battles with Sortiara and others in the main story and can only be completed by sacrificing your would-be assassin.

What's more, you will be introduced to new types of Archfiends as well as a unique spin on them, Gemini. As the lore states, sometimes a sorcerer is corrupted by multiple things at once and splits into two identical archfiends. You must slay both before the sorcerer is freed and the quest is complete.

As you complete chapters in the main story additional quests and chapters of Avalon Pacts will become available, meaning you'll almost always have something new to do! Each chapter also contains one or more "Split" pacts in which your choice to save or sacrifice a slain Archfiend will only give you access to one set of additional missions. To fully complete a chapter, you must complete all the quests on both sides of the split.

To do this, after making you choice and completing the unlocked quests you must go back to the quest where the pact splits and overwrite the journal by making the opposite decision. The previously completed pacts will remain completed and you can then finish the remaining quests.
