Lowan Nilmani has received word that one of the Black Abbot's key allies is prepared to turn against him. Mentau operates a laboratory in the North West corner of the Orchard of the Macabre. In this laboratory, the former artificer has been constructing an army of flesh golems to serve the lich's evil intentions. Sensing Mentau's impending betrayal, the Abbot turned the air elemental powering the laboratory against its operator. Lowan wants you to find the laboratory, sneak in, and do whatever is necessary to get Mentau to join your forces.

What to Expect

  • Overlapping floors
  • Points of no return
  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Requires extra player(s)/hireling(s) (mandatory: 5 runes have to be used almost simultaneously)

Known Traps

Trap DC's

  • Acid/Poison spray; no box, but easy to time
  • Two sets of blade traps; 3 boxes for the traps. There's also a lever above that will turn them off briefly, and they can be timed.
  • Lightning trap in the Warehouse; four boxes, one on each corner pillar.

Tips and Misc

  • A fairly straight-forward quest, although you have to drop down into the bowels of the laboratory a couple of times to proceed.
  • The gate to the Assembly Area can be picked (its DC is quite high) so you can avoid fighting your way to the key if you have someone who can pick the lock in your party.
  • The five runes to summon the air elemental boss must all be unlit within a very short amount of time (~20 seconds). The air eles in the room respawn, so it can be useful to have somebody get all their aggro and stand in a corner (to avoid being thrown off the ledge) while the rest do the runes. It's easily possible for one person to do 2-3 runes; more than that can be difficult, however.
  • Once Chained Lightning is destroyed, return to Mentau, who will open the trap door in the control room; at the bottom will be a large central pillar with a rune, and four corner pillars. Disable the traps on the corner pillars, hit the rune, and destroy several waves of flesh golems! The Magical Portal beyond the chest will bring you outside.
  • Trivia: Mentau the Flesh Maker is a reference to the mint Mentos, and its slogan - "Mentos... the Freshmaker"
