The Brilliant Gem of Balance is an essence gem which grants a moderate bonus to all three ability scores (Body, Mind, and Spirit). It is part of a series of gems with similar effects, being slightly stronger than both the Gem of Mastery and the Gem of Unity, but slightly weaker than the Scintillating Gem of Power. Unlike some of the gems in the series, it does not have any alignment requirement.
It can be obtained in two different ways:
- It is given to players as a reward by the Forest Shadow if they solve the The Sickened Forest quest by kill the Mother rather than killing the Forest Shadow herself.
- In the Inner Courtyard of Dirge, one can be found in a ceramic urn.
In-game description: "No matter what a person's path in life, fate, destiny, and human desire decide how far one goes. Whether on a path of peace or of power, the will must exist in balance with the needs of the body, the mind, and the spirit. When all are one, then true mastery can be achieved. this gem allows its wielder to balance the forces within, strengthening the whole."
