What’s the Difference Between Killing Faerin or Faelin in Remnant 2?

Faerin and Faelin are imposters in Remnant 2, so you’re doing a good deed no matter who you choose to kill. But each has its own set of rewards, so let’s go over them.

Killing Faerin in Remnant 2

If you kill Faerin in Remnant 2, you will be rewarded with the Melded Hilt crafting material and Faelin’s Sigil.

Melded Hilt can be used to craft the Godsplitter melee weapon, equipped with the mod “Fracture.” The Fracture mod causes Charge Attacks to register as Weakspot hits for 2 seconds.

On the other hand, Faelin’s Sigil is a ring that causes melee attacks to generate 10% extra Mod Power. Players can receive this ring by reporting to Faelin after defeating Faerin.

To change who you will fight during the Faelin or Faerin quest, you can do so by using the switch located at the central door in the Palace Courtyard. A large circle platform will rotate on the ground when you pull the switch. If the light half of the circle faces the door, then Faelin will appear on the opposite side in the Beatific Gallery. If the circle’s dark half faces the door, Faerin will appear instead in the Malefic Gallery.
