Overview

Locate the entrance to the Forgotten Caverns.


Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!

Objectives

  • Search for an entrance into the caverns
  • Explore the forgotten caverns
  • Kill all of the trolls: 8 total.
  • (Optional) Slay Moldfang +10% Bonus.( ♣55 ♦109 ♥116 ♠122 )

What to Expect

  • Collapsible floor
  • Point of no return

Known Traps

The first room (with the cold mephits) has a cold trap (only disarmed when all the cold Mephits in the room are slain)

Tips and Misc

The quest starts near a big empty room where several Greater Ice Mephits appear. The floor then collapses, revealing hidden caverns adventurers have to explore, killing a Troll tribe and its leader along the way.

At higher difficulty settings Greater Ice Mephits might be challenging unless properly prepared. A 'Resist Energy: Cold' spell or potions giving the effect can be very useful. No need to have a long lasting resistance since there won't be any further Mephits in the quest. Once Mephits have been dispatched, use only the edges of the room to reach the treasure chest, as most of the floor collapses. It's no big deal if you fall (the party will have to jump in anyway), but you'll miss the chest and won't be able to come back.

Moldfang is not easy to dispatch either. As a troll boss, wounds regenerate, but if you get through him you'll have access to rest shrines. His cavern is partly flooded, be careful not to find yourself inadvertently swimming while fighting him.

The shrines in the troll room require a Strength check of 18 to bash down the door.
