Remnant 2: Faelin Or Faerin Choice [All Outcomes]

Players will face formidable bosses, Faelin and Faerin, and must defeat one to progress in Remnant 2 and earn the exclusive item.

Upon placing the Faelin and Faerin Mural Pieces into the expansive circle at Remnant 2 Palace Courtyard, a new path will open up, granting players entry to both the Beatific and Malefic Galleries. Within these areas, players will come face-to-face with formidable bosses, Faelin and Faerin, who demand that their respective counterparts must be defeated to progress.

Key Takeaways
  • Placing Faelin and Faerin Mural Pieces in Remnant 2’s Palace Courtyard opens paths to Beatific and Malefic Galleries.
  • Each gallery has formidable bosses, Faelin and Faerin, and defeating one is necessary for progression.
  • Killing Faelin grants “Traitor” and “Was this Supposed to Happen” Achievements, rewards “Imposter’s Heart” for crafting long gun Deceit.
  • Faerin’s defeat earns the “Traitor” Achievement, rewards “Melded Hilt” for crafting Melee Weapon Godsplitter.
  • Faerin’s Sigil ring boosts Mod Power generation by 10% for Critical and Weak Spot Hits; Faelin’s for Melee damage.
  • Use the lever in the mural circle’s center to switch between Faelin or Faerin, impacting rewards and crafting options.
  • The choice doesn’t significantly impact the story; to get both rewards, reroll Remnant 2’s campaign or Adventure Mode, retaining character progress while restarting to face the other boss.

Should You Kill Faelin Or Faerin In Remnant 2?

The decision to eliminate either Faelin or Faerin depends on the rewards offered by each option. Both opponents are difficult, and the choice ultimately lies in your hands, as each one provides a different reward upon completion.

In my experience, though, I killed Faelin first to get the Deceit Long Gun which, in my opinion, is the most fun rifle-like weapon to use in Remnant 2.

Facing Faerin in the Beatific Gallery grants you the “Traitor” Achievement and the “Was this Supposed to Happen” Achievement if it’s your initial encounter with an alternate World Boss. 

  • The “Imposter’s Heart” item, which allows Ava to craft the long gun Deceit. 
  • You will also get Faerin’s Sigil, a ring that boosts Mod Power generation by 10% for Critical and Weak Spot Hits.

Ultimately, killing Faelin in this gallery bestows items that are better suited for melee builds, at least during my testing.

On the other hand, confronting Faerin in the Malefic Gallery only earns you the “Traitor” Achievement. As for the rewards, you will get:

  • You will receive the “Melded Hilt” item, allowing Ava to craft the Melee Weapon Godsplitter. 
  • Faelin’s Sigil, a ring that increases Mod Power generation by 10% for Melee damage.

In my view, overcoming Faelin in this gallery provides items that are more advantageous for ranged builds.

How To Switch Between Faelin And Faerin In Remnant 2?

  1. Locate the lever situated in the center of the mural where the Faelin and Faerin Mural Pieces are inserted.
  2. Pulling the lever will set the large circle into motion, allowing you to change the direction it faces.
  3. If the light half of the circle is pointed toward the door, passing through the portal will take you to the Beatific Gallery and Faelin.
  4. On the other hand, if the dark half of the circle is pointed toward the door, it will lead you to Faerin in his Malefic Gallery.

Do The Choices Affect The Story?

After defeating either Faelin or Faerin, the story will advance, and you’ll be taken to the Labyrinth. The storyline doesn’t significantly change based on your choice; the main difference lies in the weapon you can craft using the special item you receive.

If you wish to obtain both items, you will need to reroll the progression. Keep in mind that you’ll retain all character progress, but you’ll have to start over to fight the other version and access the alternative weapon.

That’s all you need to know before fighting either Faelin or Faerin. Furthermore, read the guide on How To Respec to adjust your character attributes. Also, learn about the Remnant 2 Classes and select the best one that suits your playstyle.
