In order to progress the interaction with D, players will need to defeat the Tibia Mariner boss. During the fight, it will teleport throughout the village and summon skeletons to defend itself.

Tip: Stay on horseback throughout the duration of this fight. Most of the Mariner's attacks are easily dodged. Keeping mobile on Torrent allows you to ignore the mobs completely and focus down the Mariner.

At some point in Fia's questline, she will ask the Tarnished for a favor. Ask her what it is and she will give you a Withered Dagger to hand back to its owner. Give this dagger to D in order to progress his questline.

Once he has it, reload the area and head over to the previously locked door next to Fia's bedchambers. Inside, D will have already been killed by Fia. Looting him will give you D's Bell Bearing, the Twinned Helm, Twinned Armor, Twinned Gauntlets, and Twinned Greaves.

While this is the end of D's questline, he will have a twin brother at the Siofra Aqueduct in Nokron, Eternal City. Giving his brother the Twinned Armor Set will allow players to get D's weapon, the Inseparable Sword, after they complete Fia's questline.

Note: If players push through with giving D's brother the armor, Fia will die at the end of her questline. Make sure to weigh your options before handing over the armor.
