Jump to: navigation, search

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!

Objectives

  • Acquire Key to Achka's Cell
  • Rescue Achka from his cell

  • (Optional) Slay Powder Heroic: +15% Bonus.( ♣44 ♦78 ♥82 ♠86 )
  • (Optional) Slay Flamefang Heroic: +10% Bonus.( ♣30 ♦52 ♥55 ♠58 )

What to Expect

  • Trap (fixed)

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.

Bonus XP

Loot

  • Chests: 0 - 1
  • Collectables: Two
    • Mushroom in the room with the key to Achka's cell
    • Crude altar in Achka's cell
