Kehjistan is the desert region that holds Alcarnus and Caldeum, and it is quickly falling into the hands of a group of cultists that have rapidly found great levels of power. As they pillage the ruins of the desert, their newfound power only helps to serve their ultimate goal of returning the Prime Evils to their former glory.

Main Town: Gea Kul

Gea Kul is the biggest town hub of Kehjistan, and has many NPCs as well as a waypoint for quick travel. Most notable shops such as the Blacksmith, Jeweler, and Occultist are located near the center area of the town, and using the town portal within Kehjistan, will always teleport the player back to Gea Kul.


There are six Waypoints located within Kehjistan.

Waypoints make it possible to move through a territory much more quickly than by walking or riding a mount alone. Traveling to World Boss Events, for instance, can be shortened by being aware of important Waypoints.

  • Altar of Ruin – Waypoint inside the Stronghold north of Amber Sands. This can be accessed once the Stronghold has been cleansed of evil.
  • Iron Wolves Encampment – Waypoint located Northeast of Ragged Coastline.
  • Imperial Library – Waypoint inside town, all the way North of Caldeum.
  • Gea Kul – Waypoint inside town center, West of Southern Expanse.
  • Denshar – Waypoint located inside town, West inside the Fields of Hatred.
  • Tarsarak – Waypoint inside town, Center area inside the Scouring Sands.

Unique Materials

The Lifesbane herb is unique to the area and can only be found inside the Kehjistan region.

Renown and Completion

One of the most effective ways to increase your power is through Renown! Throughout Kehjistan, there is a lot to discover and explore. Either through doing Side Dungeons, collecting Altars of Lilith, liberating Strongholds, and more.

Here is a list of all known Kehjistan Renown activities:

  • Waypoints: 6
  • Strongholds: 3
  • Side Quests: 44
  • Side Dungeons: 23
  • Altars of Lilith: 31
  • Areas that can be discovered: 54

You can always check your region progress by opening the Map and then decide how many Side Quests and Dungeons you still need, in order to collect all available Skill Points, Potion Charges and Paragon Points.

We have a separate page that lists all of the Altars of Lilith in this zone, as well as their rewards.

Here is a short summary of things to do within Kehjistan to gain Renown as quickly as possible:

  • Explore the entire region and discover all available Waypoints for quick travel.
  • Remember to check your Renown progress by opening the Map.
  • Clear out all three Strongholds, so that the areas become friendly.
  • Complete all (blue) Side Quests and Dungeons
  • Pick up Lifesbane herbs on your way.
  • Collect all Altars of Lilith.


Strongholds are event areas that are marked by a red skull on the mini-map. They are occupied by different enemies which must be cleared out in order to unlock the area as a friendly part of the Region. In most cases, a Stronghold becomes a player-friendly town after it has been purged of enemies, however it can also become a dungeon.

Each completed Stronghold also grants 100 Renown and experience. Certain Waypoints and Dungeons will also only become unlocked after successfully purging the Stronghold. In total, there are three Strongholds that can be cleansed of evil within Kehjistan:

  • Altar of Ruin – Located in the north of Kehjistan.
  • Alcarnus – Located in the center of Kehjistan, Northwest of Tarsarak.
  • Omath’s Redoubt – Located east of Gea Kul, all the way down south in Kehjistan.

World Boss

The World Boss Zone of Kehjistan is located within an area known as Seared Basin, Northeast in Kehjistan, or just all the way North from the Tarsarak Waypoint.

World Bosses are big, terrible monsters that are dangerous to both melee, and ranged players. We recommend players to check out our respective World Boss Guide here:

Avarice The Gold Cursed Guide

It is always worth sticking around and fighting these strong encounters together with other players or friends, as world bosses can drop a special item called Scattered Prism, which is used to add sockets to certain slots of gear. Next to completing legion events, fighting world bosses is one of the best ways to farm Scattered Prisms.
