Walkthrough

A strange device housing the Baleful GemBaleful GemThe withering glare of corruption, made
corporeal and pellucid in crystal.

This quest is given by Greust, as soon as you arrive at the Forest Encampment. The goal is to investigate the Chamber of Sins.

Quest Notification.png Investigate the Blackguards

Investigate the Blackguards that are searching the Chamber of Sins.


Greust: I have seen warriors in black in the east. They are from your Oriath. Better fed, better armed than you, exile. Oriath did not want you, so why does it follow you here?

You will understand what you see more than I. Go east and find these warriors in black. If there is danger to us, I need to learn of it.

Trivia: rather bizarrely, the area in the game has never actually contained Blackguard monsters. The Chamber of Sins is instead largely full of undead necromancy; the Blackguards actually encountered in Act 2 actually appear in the The Western Forest.

Quest Notification.png Kill Fidelitas

Helena: That thing... it slaughtered everyone. Help me!

Quest Notification.png Talk to the girl

Talk to the girl who was hiding from Fidelitas and the other monsters in the Chamber of Sins.


Helena: Piety was after a creation of Maligaro’s called the ‘Baleful Gem’. It’s nearby, and it’s something that heartless bitch must never get her hands on.

Please find it and meet me at that Azmeri village by the river. My days with the Ebony Legion are done!

with you.


Helena:' Here I stand, in the light of day. An impossible dream for a woman caged in horror.
Thank you again for saving my sorry hide. Sorry in so many ways that I simply can't begin. Actually, that's not true. I can begin by offering you more than mere thanks. I offer you my allegiance and my mind... the sharpest weapon that I possess. My knowledge is your knowledge, saviour.

Quest Notification.png Quest Complete

Quest Complete - You have rescued Helena from the Chamber of Sins and have been rewarded by Greust.


Greust: The Oriathan girl... she is alive. She wants to stay with us, not to go back to her people. I say we take her traitor's heart to their chief. Ask that the warriors in black leave us be.

I sleep less but know more, thanks to you. Helena gave me one of her shiny stones, in peace. I give it to you.
