If you want a bloodless encounter here as there are several angels and cultists in the area around the crafting recipe, you can have one of your Rangers soak up on Holy Radiation. Having a high enough Holy Radiation allows you to choose conversation options that calms down the angels, allowing you access to the area without spilling any blood.
