“You're not supposed to be in here! You're going to ruin the surprise!”
The following article/section contains spoilers. Please complete Saya's Vigil and The War Within quests before proceeding.

Secretive and respected, the Quills are the Unum's closest adherents. Strange and reserved, their bond to her and each other makes for a strange relationship with causality. "We are each one viewpoint within the myriad that comprises the Unum. We watch, we anticipate, we intercede."
—The Quills of Cetus Fragment
A secretive order, loyal to the mysterious and reclusive 'Unum'. Some say their relationship to cause and effect is unnatural, their knowledge profane. When a Quill acts, things change.

The Quills are a mysterious monastic order that serve the equally enigmatic Unum, a being who resides within the Orokin Tower at Cetus in the Plains of Eidolon. They have very close ties to the Ostron people who also praise the Unum, and are seemingly knowledgeable about the secrets of the Tenno. They are said to be able to divine the future, which combined with their information gathering prowess allows them to preemptively end threats to Cetus through their operatives.


The player will be able to ally with the Quills after completing both Saya's Vigil and The War Within quests and bringing their Operator to a cave in the north-east part of Cetus, behind Konzu's notice board.

Standing Gain[]

To earn standing for the Quills, players must find and collect Sentient Cores dropped by Sentient enemies. These include Eidolons (Eidolon Vomvalysts, Eidolon Teralysts, Eidolon Gantulysts, and Eidolon Hydrolysts), Lua's Battalysts and Conculysts, and Veil Proxima's Murex Sentients (Brachiolysts, Symbilysts, Aerolysts, Conculysts, and Battalysts). Cores are traded to Onkko for standing.

Fully-constructed and max ranked Amps can also be traded into the Quills for standing, whether or not they have been gilded.

Patch History[]

Update 30.9 (2021-11-11)

Sentient Core Standing + Blueprint Changes (NEW since the initial Dev Workshop)

In addition to the already noted changes to Amps and Ore/Gems, we’ve included an increase to Sentient Core Standing return and also modified the Exceptional Sentient Core Conversion Blueprint. Those starting out on their Quills journey should find this allows them to progress through the Syndicate faster to reach the higher tier Offerings.

  • Increased Standing return from Sentient Cores:
    • Intact Sentient Core Standing return from 100 to 250
    • Exceptional Sentient Core Standing return from 500 to 750
    • Flawless Sentient Core Standing return from 1200 to 1500
  • Exceptional Sentient Core Conversion Blueprint Changes:
    • Exceptional Sentient Core Conversion Blueprint now transforms 10 Intact Cores into 10 Exceptional Cores, as opposed to 2:2.
    • Duration to Craft and cost to Rush have been halved: down to 5 mins and 5 Platinum respectively.
    • The Radian Sentirum and Heart Nyth values remain as 1 each!

Players who had an Exceptional Sentient Core Conversion Blueprint crafting will get a one-time gift of 10 Exceptional Cores in exchange for only spending 2 Intact Cores. Bank error in your favor!

Update 29.10 (2021-03-19)

  • Fixed the Syndicate button on the donation screens for Quills sending you to the Cetus Standing screen instead of the Quills.

Update 24.6 (2019-04-04)

POE / CETUS ECONOMY REMASTER LITE

With Fortuna's release, we applied some general economy changes based on takeaways from Cetus. Now that we have returned to Cetus and the Plains of Eidolon with a remaster, we are applying some 'Economy Remaster' changes to go with the changes in an effort to apply our continued learnings. Change is the name of the game - thank you for all feedback on our economies and for being receptive to change!

  • Replaced Arcane Blueprints with Arcanes in Quills Offerings meaning that Arcanes no longer need to be built.
    • Owned Magus and Virtuos Arcane Blueprints have been converted to full-crafted Arcanes.
  • Reduced Standing cost of Cetus Wisps from Quills Offerings.

Update 23.0 (2018-06-15)

  • Onkko has acquired new offerings! Trade Quills Standing for Landing Craft Decorations like Glowing Sentient Cores, Eidolon Relics, and more! Plus, acquire the Onkko's Cave Scene for your Captura desires.

Update 22.0 (2017-10-12)

  • Introduced.
