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 leads south from the Riverways towards Prisoner's Gate, and the waypoint appears on the side of the road. A torch on the road near some loose stones indicates the direction of Alira's camp; this can be on either side of the road as the camp may be in the north or west of the area. Opposite from the camp is the entrance to The Weaver's Chamber on the side of the zone, which is engulfed in webbing.

Finally, the Prisoner's Gate exit at the end of the road is guarded by soldiers in the Ebony Legion, including Captain Arteri. 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 from Bestel.


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.
