How to Recruit Arueshalae in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous

In this guide, we will be showing you How to Recruit Arueshalae in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous through two methods

Arueshalae is one of the recruitable companions available to you in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Each companion in Pathfinder WotR comes packed with unique dialogue, a back story, and special characteristics, and Arueshalae is no exception. You must finish several prerequisite quests and complete a puzzle to recruit her.

In this guide, we’ll discuss how to find and recruit Arueshalae in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, including all the quests you need to complete to find her and a solution for the puzzle that ultimately unlocks her.

How to Recruit Arueshalae Early

To Recruit Arueshalae, you must first complete the main quest, “Starward Gaze,” during Act 1. Doing so unlocks Azata Mystic Path, which lets you recruit her fairly early in the game. If you don’t complete this quest, you’ll have to wait until Act 3 to have her join your party.

Next, during Act 2, make your way to the lost chapel. Start at the point on the map above and head outside by taking a left. Keep going down until you reach a ledge where you must make an Athletics check. Right after you do this, you’ll be faced with many Gargoyles. Defeat them and progress.

Towards the left side of the battle area, you’ll notice an altar by a couple of trees. Desna’s Altar is the main obstacle standing between you and Arueshalae. To solve this puzzle, you need to find two items: a small sextant and a Small Harp.

From the Altar, head north until you encounter a couple of wolves. Defeat them all and loot them to acquire the Small Sextant. The map image above gives an approximate location of the Small Sextant.

The Small Harp can be acquired from a cave near where you found the sextant. The map above gives an approximate location of where you need to go. Enter the cave and defeat the Gargoyle Chieftain present there, right behind there’ll be a chest that contains the Small Harp.

Now that you have both of the required items, make your way to the Altar and place them on it, once you do, three hand icons will appear on the altar and you need to press them in the correct order to recruit Arueshalae. The order of the icons is as follows:

  1. Middle
  2. Right
  3. Left
  4. Middle
  5. Middle

Once you punch the icons in the correct order, Arueshalae’s spirit will appear, and she’ll tell you to find her in Drezen’s Prison. Continue with Act 2 until you reach the prison in Drezen’s Siege (make sure to go with Nurah’s plan to make the path easier on yourself). Arueshalae will be found in the middle cell. Talk to her and select the Azata Mystic Path option to recruit her.

How to Recruit Arueshalae in Act 3

If you don’t have the Azata Mystic Path option, you won’t be able to recruit her early. Instead, you’ll have to wait until Act 3. It is important to note that this character is vital to the story, and she’ll join you no matter what.

During Act 3, if you choose to sleep, you’ll eventually see Arueshalae in a dream who’ll tell you the exact location you need to go to find her. Follow her instructions, and you’ll recruit her easily.

[FYI: Depending on when you recruit her, Arueshalae’s level will be different. If she’s recruited during Act 2, she’ll be at level 8; if she’s recruited during Act 3, she’ll be at level 10.]
