The mine is a grim place of shadowed halls and gaping chasms. Somewhere in the darkness, the chieftain's son awaits rescue.

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

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Force traps across bridge; the control box is on the far (east) side of the bridge, on the north.

Tips and Misc

  • The Key to Achka's Cell is held by an Ogre leader behind a door near the entrance (to the west and down the ladder).
  • Earth elementals will spawn after opening Achka's cell; it's not necessary to kill them before speaking to Achka and completing the quest.
  • The eastern area of the map is blocked off; this prevents any bonuses from killing or breaking (the traps bonus may still be possible, however).
  • Powder may appear on the bridge to the jail area.
  • Flamefang may appear in a cell near Achka; otherwise, several hell hounds will appear.

  • Chests: 0 - 1
  • Collectables: Two
