Amalur Wiki


A bleeding villager in Emaire will ask you to retrieve some amulet after giving you a sob story about being robbed on the road. If your Detect Hidden is high enough, you can choose the extra dialogue option and pick apart the guy's lies. You will end the talk (one way or another) with a target fleeing into the Cradle of Summer.

Alternately, you can get the mission by speaking with Wane Emundas on the second floor of Oddities and Curios in Emaire (the Sagecrafting shop).

Hunt down the second thief, Gelt Far, located in the Cradle of Summer. As it turns out, the stolen amulet, the Eye of Amman, is cursed and the thief asks you to cleanse the cursed amulet by entering the Fae Hollow Syl and soaking it in the purifying water at the altar there.

Beware that once you take the amulet, you will be afflicted with three curses which have a random chance of magically damaging you with fire, ice, or lightning each time you make an attack (which includes the Sphere of Protection's orbs hitting an enemy); the chance varies from 15% to 20% depending on the element. If your gear or stats are not high enough to survive this damage, the Syl dungeon will be fatal. On the other hand, if you are capable of auto-regenerating health faster than you can lose it, you should be fine. Also, if you have invested in the Might class then you can use Relentless Assault and the hits of magic won't stop your combos. Kill the enemies within, use the sacred font at the end of the dungeon, and return the amulet to either the thief who took the amulet, or the actual owner (Wane Emundas).

Pressure plate switch that opens the door

  • If you speak with Gelt Far (instead of Pickpocketing the amulet from him), you can discover that it is cursed and you need to go to Syl to remove the curse. Therefore you can decline to take the amulet, clear out Syl first and open the shortcut door by stepping on the pressure plate, then come back for the amulet. Return to Syl quickly enough and it should still be empty of enemies, allowing you to walk in safely and remove the curse.
  • It is advised that the player goes into Syl to cleanse the amulet right after receiving it, as the three curses are very dangerous, even deadly depending on your level.
  • The door leading out of the final chamber is activated by a pressure-plate located on the floor, right in front of the door. Once the switch is stepped on the door will open. The switch might be easy to miss due to its organic look that blends in with the rest of the floor - see image to the right for close-up and map location. You can walk over it only once each time you enter Syl so try not to lock yourself in by stepping on it on your 2nd or subsequent visit, because there's no other way out.
  • The curses inflicted upon you by the amulet are particularly dangerous for wielders of Faeblades as they  have very high attack speeds and can hit multiple opponents, greatly increasing the chances one of the curses will activate. If you use them, it is recommended you switch to a slower, more focused weapon until the curse is lifted from the amulet.
  • The Eye of Amman amulet is non-equippable, and the curse is activated merely by having it in your inventory.
  • Wane Emundas will sometimes glitch when you talk to him, and he will leave before you give him the amulet, causing you to not receive the reward.
  • If the Fateless One has the eye's curses removed by a healer before getting the amulet purified, then they will not be afflicted by the 3 curses until the curse immunity wears off.


Hidden door closes after cleansing the amulet. Won't reopen. Have to exit the game because I can't leave the area.

Solution: This isn't a bug; the hidden door can be opened and closed by a "Hard too see Switch on the floor" just beyond the threshold, but only once every time you enter the Syl. The Switch is camouflaged, so when a player runs over it, it will cause the door to close if the door was already open upon entering the Syl. After killing the Boggarts and Thresh, cleanse the Amulet. Upon leaving the area, walk to your left or right as you head out the hidden door, avoiding the switch in the middle. If you have already been to the Syl, chances are that you opened the door via the switch and came back not knowing, accidentally activating the switch again to close the door.
