The Western Forest is an area in Act 2. This area has a waypoint and is connected to The Riverways, The Weaver's Chambers and Prisoner's Gate.

A long stone road connects the Riverways to Prisoner's Gate, and the waypoint appears on the side of the road. A destroyed section of the road with a torch indicates the location of Alira's camp. Opposite from it is the entrance to The Weaver's Chamber. The Prisoner's Gate exit is guarded by soldiers in the Ebony Legion, including Captain Arteri, at the end of the road.

When Arteri is killed, he drops the quest item Thaumetic EmblemThaumetic EmblemA sigil of thaumaturgy graven in granite. and no other items. Picking up the emblem and activating the magical symbol on the wall completes the quest The Way Forward, which gives one passive skill point each difficulty from Bestel.

Furthermore, the entrance to The Weaver's Chamber can be found on a side of the zone, which is engulfed in webbing.


When you come across a torch and a stone path along the road, that indicates which side of the map leads to Alira's camp. The other side of the road leads to The Weaver's Chambers. Follow the road west to get to the Blackguards to get the Thaumetic Emblem.
