Through Sacred Ground is an optional quest in Act 2.


Talk to Yeena to start the Quest. It is unlocked after you free Helena from the Chamber of Sins during Intruders in Black and after completing The Great White Beast.

Yeena: The spirit is strong in Fellshrine. You touch the stones, you will feel it. They spoke to me, those stones. Told me to take their altar, and to find the hand of a Good Man. He lived in that 'church' as you call it. The altar is his and it will wake when he touches it once more.

You could find the Good Man, bring me his hand? When the spirit of the altar awakes, I will share it with you. I promise.

Find the Golden Hand in the Crypt

Yeena has asked you to locate the Hand of the 'good man' in the Crypt to the south of the Crossroads which lies to the east of the Forest Encampment. (The Hand is on level 2 of the Crypt.)

Take the Golden Hand to Yeena

Now, I promised to share. Let us awaken this spirit, bring even more good into this life.
