There is a bug in cargo that busted the name list functionality for items, resulting in wrong/random items being returned for {{Il}} (item links).

A fix for them to behave similar to before has been deployed, the underlying bug still exists though. If you see item links showing the wrong item despite being correct in the source text please null-edit the page. For other item link errors (red text) see the template for details.

The Vaal Ruins is an area in Act 2. This area does not have a waypoint and is connected to The Wetlands and The Northern Forest.

To enter the Vaal Ruins, players must finish the quest The Root of the Problem. This requires the Baleful GemBaleful GemThe withering glare of corruption, made
corporeal and pellucid in crystal.

pains to keep them excruciatingly sharp.
from The Weaver's Chambers.

The ruins are a large maze with rooms of various sizes. Sarcophagi appear in some rooms and act like normal chests.

Towards the end of the area the path is blocked by the Ancient Seal, which once activated unleashes a strange darkness and initiates the Shadow of the Vaal quest. Stairs leading up to the Northern Forest are on the other side.
