Elder Brithvar Dialogue Options

When first approached, Elder Brithvar is discussing with his associate Stone Guard Kur regarding how to free True Soul Nere and unpaid wages. Players can convince Elder Brithvar that they are not in Nere's side, this will lead Brithvar to propose a deal to bring the Drow down. If players accept, he will also ask them to first destroy the Scrying Eye that is moving through the Duergar camp.

Once Nere is freed, Brithvar will reclaim to the Drow the unpaid wages and players can make their final choice regarding the Duergar. Either to side with Nere or to side with Elder Brithvar and the rebels, by doing so, he and his crew will fight alongside you during this fight.

If you sided with him, and he survives, you can convince him to release the Deep Gnomes for the Save the Grymforge Gnomes quest. If he didn't survive, another Duergar will take his place regarding what to do with the Deep Gnomes.
