A large portion of relevant modules/templates have now been switched to cargo. Various usages of SMW throughout the wiki need to be replaced by the new functions, in particular item tables. If some pages do not show up but contain no errors, please null-edit them. To see how you can help with the port check out Path_of_Exile_Wiki:To-do_list/SMW_migration (and leave a comment on the talk page if you have questions).
The Vaal Ruins
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. from The Chamber of Sins Level 2 and Maligaro's SpikeMaligaro's SpikeMaligaro loved his tools, and took great
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.
