The Three Altars Walkthrough


At the west corner of Cloisterwood (Around X:115 Y:269) there is a Lamenting Abomination. When you approach it will summon wolves and attacks you. Kill it then kneel before the altar will acquire this task.
The wolves provide a huge buff for the Abomination each turn so the focus should be keeping the Abomination chain CCed.

Another altar is at X:414 Y:301, on the river.

 The third altar is at X:482 Y:260, also on the river. When you approach, a voidwoken deer will attack you.


Tips & Tricks

  • Comments mentioning the "The Restless Scarecrow" encounter being related to this quest are inaccurate/trolling; it has nothing to do with this quest(at least as of Oct11/2017) and will not effect nor close it before or after the three altars have been interacted with. 
  • The only way currently known to close this quest is by leaving Reaper's Coast.
  • As of Oct19/2017 quest does not appear in journal

      In Definitive Edition, interacting with each altar for the first time and praying there WILL refill one source point for the character doing the praying. Then again, that might be a specific thing for Fane, as I used him to interact with them.

        Definitive: The three altars all add entries to "The Eternal Promise", which I already had in my log as a Chronicle from Ft. Joy, iirc. There is an entry about Zaleskar under this heading. Contrary to other posts, despite having a similar message this had nothing to do with scarecrows, and no Source points are refilled by using the altars.

          I've been to and knelt at all 3 altars but, the quest not only hasn't completed but it has never appeared in my quest log at all. What the hell?

            As far as I can tell, this is no longer a quest, but merely a task. Each altar seems to refill source points.

              Actually the scare crow could have something to do with this quest. Ive done 4 playthroughs in this game, each time doing this quest. My current run this quest is bugged, and the only difference this run is that I encountered the scare crow BEFORE going to any one of the altars. The quest will not start/trigger and Ive been to all 3 altars and interacted with them yet have not gained source point. In my experience, it seems likely that the scare crow event might possibly break this questline.

                    There is more to the quest for sure. I visited all three altars but I couldn't figure out what to do so I just went ahead to the nameless isle. The journal closes the quest as says, "I set sail from Reaper's Coast. I will learn no more about the altar voice, it seems."

                    So If anyone manages to figure the rest please post here.

                      One is west of the Cloisterwood Waypoint.
                      One is to the East of the Driftwood - Fields Waypoint
                      One is Across the river, and north, of the Paladin Bridgehead Waypoint.

                        After all three altars quest still is active. Is there anything else to do? It get cancelled when leaving Reapers Coast.
