The High Priest aided her in producing a cure for the demonic contagion infecting Roland. Upon traveling to Deadwood Landing on the Broken Shore, she tracked the source of the contagion that also affected the fighters on the isle. After dealing with fel spreaders and healing the Legionfall soldiers, she joined the Conclave at Netherlight Temple as a Champion.
