Tips and Misc
Be sure to prepare well before entering the circle at the entry, the opening battle is a long one.
Keep an eye out for the "secret passages" hidden in the walls (shown as portals on the map on this page, but not shown in-game). They lead to an early shrine and past sealed doors to continue the quest.
The main portion of the quest ends once you've slain the Portal Keeper, Caraduhn, and characters can finish at that point if they wish. Make sure you wait for his comments before you break each shrine, because he occasionally won't become hostile if you break shrines immediately without waiting for him to respond. The dragons and giant champions are optional and purple-named. They are much tougher than the main part of the quest; you might find yourself unprepared if you attempt to challenge the dragons on Hard/Elite.In order to defeat the dragon and the giant, you must kill both of them at the same time (within about 8 seconds) or the dead one will revive with full life and all the debuffs will disappear.
