However, before you are able to do any of this, you first need to find the Oval Stone that acts as a key to open the book. This is a special Amethyst called Dark Amethyst. We’ve only found one in the game and you can find it at the location marked above on the map.

This is a huge underground cave that’s full of spiders and a spider queen boss. It’s a tough fight but doable with a party of level 2-3 characters. You can reach this cave by visiting the Blighted Village, this is a large village far to the West of the grove.
