After you progress far enough through Act 3, Ulgrim is going to say that the region contains two other groups of survivors: Kymon’s Chosen and Order of Death’s Vigil. He also notes that these groups likely won’t work together as he sends you to talk with their emissaries. Emissaries from both groups stand downstairs with question marks on top of their heads. By talking to the emissaries, you could decide which group to ally with and that decision results in a number of changes.

What Is The Earliest Point That I Can Start The Quest?

To activate Allies Among The Ashes, you must complete The Aetherial Farm quest, kill The Amalgamation and talk to Ulgrim. During the conversation, Ulgrim is going to mention “two other groups of survivors”. Next, you should spot emissaries from Kymon’s Chosen and Order of Death’s Vigil downstairs. All you have to do is to interact with emissaries to access the choices for allying.

Is There A Way To Reset My Choice?

Assuming that you manage to reach Elite or Ultimate difficulties, you could opt to side with another faction. Still, it’s worth pointing out that your reputation for Kymon’s Chosen as well as Order of Death’s Vigil would be reset. That means it’s impossible to ally with both factions at the same time so think before you act.

How Come I Cannot Ally With Kymon’s Chosen?

In case you don’t know, Kymon’s Chosen hates everything and everyone that involves necromancy. Your Grim Dawn character is a necromancer? Then you cannot choose to ally with Kymon’s Chosen as long as your character possesses the Necromancer mastery. If you attempt to talk with the emissary from Kymon’s Chosen, he would only reply with a hostile attitude. (Zorafestival)
