Early-game choices always feel weighty, and you might have found yourself asking which Holy Cedar Tablet Sin should you choose in Diablo 4. When you reach Kyovashad for the first time , you’re tasked with taking part in a ritual and burning your sins to gain access to the city as part of the Rite of Passage quest. Interacting with the shrine next to the gatehouse lets you inscribe a Holy Cedar Tablet with a sin of your choice.

You might not even have access to the Fractured Peak Waypoints yet, but that doesn’t change the fact this decision can feel like one that might have lasting consequences. Which Holy Cedar Tablet sin should you choose in Diablo 4, and does it matter? In this guide, we lay out exactly what happens for each of the five options in Diablo 4.

Diablo 4 Holy Cedar Tablet Choices

Reaching the Kyovashad gatehouse sees several guards bar your way, stressing that you must participate in a cleansing ritual to enter the city. To do this, you’ll need to interact with a shrine close to the gatehouse, inscribe a piece of wood with a sin, and chuck it into the fire. At the shrine, you’ll have the option to inscribe five sins on a Holy Cedar Tablet, as follows:

  • Inscribe Fear into the wood.
  • Inscribe Anger into the wood.
  • Inscribe Pride into the wood.
  • Inscribe Greed into the wood.
  • Inscribe nothing but scribbles into the wood.

The short answer is that your choice here has no lasting impact on the rest of your playthrough. Regardless of which sin you decide to inscribe on the Holy Cedar Tablet, the result is the same when you return to the guard: you’ll receive a chunk of XP, cash, and access to Kyovashad. Take your pick, as the choice of sin doesn’t matter. If this changes when the full release dates and early access release dates arrive in June, we’ll be sure to keep you updated though.

That covers everything you need to know about the Holy Cedar Tablet choice in Diablo 4.
