Alistair in an NPC (Non-Playable Character) in Death's Gambit. NPCs are those found within the game that interact with the player by giving advice, quests, items, and acting as Merchants.


Alistair Information

  • Once a man, transformed into a Snail-like creature by the Astromancer. Alistair is found at the Rider's Passage. He will talk about the properties of the Spring in the area.  He claims that the blossoms nurtured by the water cure various ailments when harvested properly, introducing his stock of Panacea, sold for 300 essence each. 

  • If killed, he drops a Skeleton Key.

Alistair Shop Inventory

Item Description Essence
Panacea Removes contagion and other minor status ailments. This applies to yourself and those near you. 300





Alistair Notes

  • Sells Panacea for 300 essence each. 
  • Cannot be killed with normal weapons. Use magic, fire, Amarog Bow, or Crystal Bombs (about 5 bombs should kill him, more are needed on NG+).
  • Drops a Skeleton Key which can open most doors that require a key. However, upon doing so you cannot buy Panacea anymore for that play through. Buy as many as you can in advance if you want to kill him for the key because you are going to need it in later areas like Journey's End.

      You could just buy the key from Jaco for 5000 essence. If you find yourself short on essence you can take a small stat loss and respec to get the necessary funds.

        Fun fact, he seems to take damage from Daughter of Gaia (heroic) spawned projectiles as they appear to go through walls and only stop after traveling about 1/2 the distance of her arena, this is obviously not a problem for most on regular since she doesn't spawn projectiles until phase two and that is typically half way or more but in heroic all blasts spawn projectiles from the start. As while grinding all of the sudden it cut to him and he was on half HP and he gave his dialogue for hurting him. Also he does not seem to heal back to full when damaged in this manner on rest.

          Magic also functions just fine in killing him. I think the worst part about this wiki isn't the lack of information, but misinformation.
