You can loot the Cloak of Elemental Absorption from the Opulent Chest (X: -170 Y: -170) in Ketheric Thorn’s chambers on the First Floor of Moonrise Towers during Act 2. Moonrise Towers is a fortress on the southwest side of the Act 2 map in Shadow-Cursed Lands.

If you want to buy and obtain the Cloak of Elemental Absorption in Act 2 of Shadow Cursed Lands, head southwest from your starting point. However, be warned that navigating the dangerous area can be challenging without additional protection against the shadow course.

We recommend that you first go to Last Light Inn in the north to receive Selune’s blessing or Moonlantern from Isobel, which will provide you with the necessary protection. Alternatively, you can defeat Kar’niss at Ruined Battlefield. If you manage to save Dolly Dolly Dolly from Kar’niss, a pixie trapped in the Moonlantern, you’ll receive the Pixie Blessing and will never have to worry about the effects of the course again.

Next, head to the far southwest side of the map to find Moonrise Towers. Only if you approach Absolute worshipers in a friendly manner, you will be able to speak with everyone and check the merchants’ stock who found their shelter in the fortress. That includes the ability to search the first floor of the Moonrise Towers to find the Cloak of Elemental Absorption in the chest in Ketheric Thorn’s chambers.

The Cloak of Elemental Absorption will be hidden in an opulent chest in the middle of the room, just at the end of the bed. (X: -170 Y: -170).

Ketrick and Balthazar share a balcony on the north side. You can get a key to Balthazar’s chambers from Disciple Z’rell. At the top landing, turn to the left to find Disciple Z’rell or look for her in the library on the same level.

An automatic dialogue scene will start. She will share information about a lost relic that the General requires. Apparently, Kethrick sent Balthazar to retrieve it, but he hasn’t returned. Ask her for details, and she will give you the key to Balthazar’s chambers.

Balthazar’s chambers are on the northeast side of the first floor, accessible through the library. If you have a key from Disciple Z’rell the room should be easy to open. Alternatively, you can pick the lock to get there. Open the next door leading to the balcony, and on the east is a locked door to Ketrick Chambers. Go inside to get the Cloak of Elemental Absorption.
