Tips and Misc

  • This dungeon is filled with crates and barrels of various sizes, most of which contain monsters in stasis (until you or another monster breaks them!). The size of the container scales with the strength of the contained monster. Small crates or barrels may contain weak monsters such as oozes or kobolds, and the largest crates (named 'Precious Crate') contain powerful monsters such as Minotaur Lords. Explosive Barrels are also mixed in with everything else, making stray shots capable of spawning multiple creatures. It is important to note that different varieties of creatures do not always get along with others, occasionally making your dungeon dive somewhat easier.
  • Behind the locked door, several bugbears will be attacking a box; even if you can't open the door, it's worth going up to the door if you're going for the XP bonuses - anything that gets broken or killed in there will count.
  • The corridor west of the locked door has four secret doors. The eastern door gets you into the central chamber; the other doors all have mephits behind them. Fire mephits south, ice mephits west, and air mephits north.
  • The Charisma rune requires a CHA of 14. Intelligence rune requires 14 INT. The Wisdom rune requires 16 WIS (elite is 21-22). You need to activate all three to get to the second set of shrines.
  • Once you go past the curved corridor past Quarian Stormbringer, a portcullis drops behind you, preventing you from going back. Sometimes the portcullis fails to be visible, but still blocks your movement.
  • Chief Makka will appear behind the locked door, down the first eastern corridor. Note that you can still get the optional if he gets killed by other monsters, even if you can't open the door.
  • Bram Brimstone will appear in the central chamber behind the first secret door down the first western corridor, across from the locked door.
  • Gwydion Dogbane will appear in the room past the Intelligence rune.
  • Quarion Stormbringer will appear north of the Intelligence rune.
