Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • 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

  • Bug: When you first see Urgnonth, he's behind a barrier that has no physics.[1]
  • Bug: Avoid bursting down the dragon too quickly (Ruin, Manyshot etc.) or the quest may glitch and make it impossible to progress.
  • 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; these are visually distinguishable.
  • Kaxith Nar 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.
