Overview

A Cult of the Dragon Below has been searching for Giantish artifacts deep in the jungles of Xen'drik. A Dragon named Urgnonth was protecting a Giantish site, but has suddenly gone missing. Speak with Mikyra in the Marketplace, and she'll send you to find out what happened to Urgnonth.


Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!

Objectives

  • Locate the Agent of Argonessen
  • Speak to Urgnonth
  • Free Urgnonth
  • Speak to Urgnonth near the sealed portal
  • Save the artifact
  • Retrieve the second artifact
  • Continue further into the complex
  • Cross the first aqueduct
  • Seek out the second aqueduct
  • Traverse the second aqueduct
  • Locate the third aqueduct
  • Gain access to the Giantish ruin
  • Disable the wards protecting the artifact chamber
  • Defeat Goralin
  • (Optional) Explore the revealed cavern
  • (Optional) Save the hidden artifact

Known Traps

  • Electrified water in the aqueducts and the endfight, not disarmable
  • Blades by the Adventurer's Pack in the first aqueduct
  • Blades along the north wall of the tunnel past the second aqueduct (heading towards the second shrines)

Tips and Misc

  • In the first aqueduct, be sure to stay on the rocky outcroppings.
  • In the second & third aqueducts, some of the rocky outcroppings will collapse under you.
  • Kaxith Nar may (will?) appear near the end of the second aqueduct.
  • The hidden cavern (and artifact) can be found in the third aqueduct, along the southern wall (before the first lever). It can only be accessed by diving into the electrified water. However, the water is only electrified on the surface by the entrance; the rest of it is safe.
