Halls of Atonement
- This article is about the uninstanced subzone. For the dungeon, see Halls of Atonement (instance).
The Halls of Atonement is a cathedral and area located in eastern Revendreth. They were once a pinnacle of redemption for the most prideful of souls. However, due to recent events they've fallen into darkness and succumbed to forbidden magics.
The members of the Halls of Atonement perform Rituals of Absolution and Ritual of Judgment. The Ritual of Absolution requires a venthyr robe, dagger, and tome, and must be performed at a reliquary where four souls may be absolved at a time. The Ritual of Judgment requires four venthyr to pass judgment upon a soul, either recognizing its redemption, upon which the soul would either choose to become a venthyr or to be re-judged by the Arbiter, or the venthyr may condemn it to the Maw. For a soul to become a venthyr, another venthyr must choose to sire them, which can present a weakness for the sire in question. Inquisitors are seen to oversee the Rituals, serving under the Harvesters of Pride.
After a Ritual of Absolution, souls are placed in Atonement Crypts where they are sealed away for an extended period of time to contemplate on their lives after being unburdened of their pride. Cryptkeeper Kassir watches over the Atonement Crypts.
The Halls of Atonement also contain the Sinstone Archive, the collection of every sinstone of every formerly-mortal venthyr that passes through the Halls and the rituals, however, sinstones of powerful venthyr tend to go "missing" and their owners hide them. They are overseen by Archivist Fane. This is important as sinstones contain a venthyr's true name as well as their sins, which gives you power over them. Archivam in the Catacombs Ward to the north, where the Harvester of Avarice normally resides, also contains the Sinstone Archives. The Catacombs hold souls under they are less arrogant and they are sent to the Halls of Atonement.
