What to Expect

  • Tile and Relay puzzle

Known Traps

  • Blades by a large door in the courtyard (disabled by opening the door)
  • Blades surrounding chest behind secret door (one box disables most of the traps in the room, few blades near chest remain active)
  • Lightning trap on tile puzzle (disabled by deactivating the red tile)

Tips and Misc

  • This is a fairly short quest - if you don't worry about optional objectives. You can avoid many fights if you stick to the main path - for example, don't poke your nose into pools of water/lava.
Main quest
  • Fight your way into the courtyard, then proceed north and up.
  • Turn on the light using a lever.
  • Rotate the mirror to beam back south.
  • Return to the courtyard and head east. The gate's closed and trapped but there's a ladder leading up.
  • Rotate the mirrors to activate the tile puzzle.
  • Solve tile puzzle to open gate east.
    • Avoid the two red tiles on either side; this will electrify the puzzle.
  • Head east through an underdark tunnel with shrines, killing drow, until you reach more buildings.
  • Defeat the summoned bebelith & Kir'tan Melarn and pick up the manifest to complete the quest.
    • You can kill many of the drow minions scattered in the drow city area before the end fight activates; stick to the edges of the room and avoid going near the central fountain.
North-west wing (Mayoral estate)
  • This optional area houses the optional skeleton Thorgar, some optional mining records, trapped locked chest behind a secret door, and shrines.
    • You can access this area using the second light-beam
West wing (Forge + Crypt)
  • This optional area has shrines at the beginning, then more mining records; crypt hides the Decaying Battlerager optional.
    • Bug: Be chary of going into the Decaying Battlerager's crypt without Dimension Door; at times, the door doesn't open back up to let you out. (Alternatively, save it for after the endfight, unless going for the kills bonus.)
  • You can access this area using the mirrors.
Courtyard
  • Courtyard hides the umber hulk optional, again activated using the mirrors.

Bonus XP

  • Discreet bonus: 31 or less monsters killed +5% Bonus.( ♣124 ♦216 ♥225 ♠234 )
  • Aggression bonus: 100-102 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣249 ♦432 ♥450 ♠468 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 132 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣373 ♦649 ♥675 ♠701 )
  • Mischief bonus: 16 or more breakables smashed +8% Bonus.( ♣199 ♦346 ♥360 ♠374 )
  • Vandal bonus: 21 or more breakables smashed +10% Bonus.( ♣249 ♦432 ♥450 ♠468 )
