If you have been in the Owlbear Nest, you will have noticed that there is a Gilded Chest and other objects that appear to be an offering to Selune.
This chest is protected by powerful magic that will deal damage to anyone who tries to open it, making it impossible to take what is inside.
Although there is no key to opening the Gilded Chest, there is still a way to open it if you do a bit of looking around the area.
Where To Find the Gilded Chest?
The Gilded Chest can be found within the Owlbear Nest by taking the path to the left going below and you will see it just across a gap from a Selune Statue.
Heading straight will lead you to the Owlbear inside the cave but there is also a path from there that leads to the statue if you decide to fight the creature first.
How To Open Gilded Chest?
To open the Gilded Chest, you will need to jump across the gap to where the statue is and look around the area behind it.
A perception check will reveal a Selunite Prayer Sheet on the ground that you will now need to pick up and bring back to the Gilded Chest.
You will need to read the Selunite Prayer Sheet in front of the chest with any character except for Shadowheart as she despises Selune.
Once you have read the Selunite Prayer Sheet, the Gilded Chest will be unlocked, and you will be able to grab its contents after a short conversation with Shadowheart.
Since Shadowheart hates Selune so much, she will urge you to leave the Gilded Chest alone or even destroy it if possible.
Taking the items will make her upset but a workaround to this would be to pass a skill check when speaking to her to prevent this.
After the conversation with Shadowheart, you are free to take which items you want from the Gilded Chest.
Gilded Chest Loot
After opening the Gilded Chest and speaking to Shadowheart about it, you will be able to take the following items from it:
- Selunite Rite
- Silver Necklace
- Idol of Selune
- Moondrop Pendant
Owlbear Nest Location
The Owlbear Nest can be found west of the Emerald Grove Environs or northwest of the Roadside Cliffs near the Blighted Village.
Its entrance is called the “Cave Mouth” which is also a location that you tend to travel to if you have met with Brynna, Andrick and the dying Edowin.
