PS: I would love to go after the Dirgest in an expansion or something.
The Dirgest Jewel
The Dirgest Jewel might not be a jewel, and might be a soulstone or Worldstone shard instead. It contains Dirgest and its location is unknown.
Dirgest is a corrupt human who has been trapped by Shen inside the Dirgest Jewel for crimes against his people. Not much else is known about him. May be possessed by a demon.
If you ask Shen about Dirgest while playing as a wizard ("The Nature of the Jewel"), your character mentions that Dirgest isn't a name from the Xiansai pantheon, to which Shen replies, "Oh, no, this was before the gods."
Oh, Shen, you so cryptic.

The Nature of the Jewel
Available at the start of the quest Siegebreaker (Act III)
I wish to learn more about this jewel and the spirit trapped within.
Oh, all you wish to hear is my most guarded secret. Well, certainly. If you cannot be trusted, then the world is in trouble, I think.
The jewel contains a... powerful creature named Dirgest. He was trapped within it for terrible crimes against his people.
The spirits have never heard this name. That is a strange thing. They know everyone.
The spirits of those who know him are trapped with him in the stone.
Now a flaw has developed in the jewel. Through it, Dirgest can consume the holder's life. I intend to seal his prison, trapping him in it forever.
A Special JewelEdit
Available at the start of the Quest: Shadows in the Desert (Act II)
Unlocks The Legend of Zei the Trickster/A Case of Mistaken Identity (see below)
Covetous Shen: I knew you would lead me to exciting and mysterious places! We should encounter the jewel I seek any day now!
Player: Tell me of this jewel. What does it look like?
Covetous Shen: Sometimes, a ruby. Other times, a glorious emerald or a stunning diamond. It is very good at hiding.
Player: So it is aware. There is a dark spirit within?
Covetous Shen: A very good question. A dangerous question. You are getting better at them.
Player: I notice that you did not answer me.
Covetous Shen: Hmm. Yes, well, a good question answers itself.
04/26/2014 04:45 AMPosted by AgnonI was playing Act 5 on the last boss and was failing repeatedly so I decided to go talk to Shen. He was very long winded but talking with him enough he revealed the back story of Dirgest and eventually a window popped up asking if I wanted to start an event to find the stone so I hit accept and it took me into the "Unearthed Ruins." once you get to the end you find Dirgest has broken free of the stone and when you kill him, Liria's spirit is revealed. When you talk with her to finish the quest it is revealed that Shen is none other than Zei from his story.
