The entrance to Koal Cave

Koal Cave is a grotto just outside of Gnisis.

The Shrine of Valor

Sacred to the Tribunal Temple, it is the site of Vivec's battle with Ruddy Man as well as one of the stations on the Pilgrimages of the Seven Graces. The quickest way to get there is to head south from the silt strider port in Gnisis, across the River Samsi, and look for a south-facing cave entrance below a natural arch.

The Shrine of Valor is inside, near the entrance. You need at least one portion of dreugh wax to offer to the shrine; activate the shrine for its blessing of Fortify Unarmored, Light Armor, Medium Armor, Heavy Armor 10 pts for 48 min. You can buy dreugh wax from Mehra Drora in the Gnisis Temple. Alternatively, you may choose to reenact Vivec's battle; if you kill the Dreugh Warlord in the cave, you'll also receive an enchanted dreugh cuirass when you offer dreugh wax to the shrine.

The cave is populated by leveled water creatures as well as a number of kollops for pearl divers. There are also three dead adventurers, including one in the reeds near the entrance.
