  • Defeat Annelisa Hdar
  • Banish the remains of Saerick Vorculas

  • (Optional) Acquire Saerick's Journal Heroic: +9.7% Bonus.( ♣162 ♦286 ♥302 ♠317 )

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed, some undisarmable)
  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Secret doors which *must* be found to continue

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Dart traps in the first room; box is on the wall past the traps
  • Fire traps in the second room (from the center); box is on the north wall past the trap
  • Force Trap on the pillar in the room south of the Room of Columns, focused on the bookshelf; box is on the west side of the pillar
  • Blade traps in the final hallway, past the blue-key door; no control boxes
  • Spike traps between the final two chambers; no control box
  • Acid trap around chest in west wing behind secret door (location M); box is on the pillar to the west
  • Spike Trap on stairs leading up to the scroll of decay (location L); box is on the far west wall
  • Spinning spike traps in the hall past the locked door to the east (on the way to H), by the oozes; box is on the north wall
  • Dart trap in the room south of the central east room; no control box (north of location J)
  • Fire trap covering Saerick's journal (location K); box is on the south wall

Tips and Misc

  • Turn undead is helpful, fire damage and Disable device are helpful.
  • Useful buffs: Resist acid and electricity (against Arcane skeletons), Death Ward, Resist Poison (against Cloudkill), Freedom of Movement, Remove Fear (against mummies)
  • Most sarcophagi will spawn a skeleton.
  • If you follow the letters on the map, you won't go too far wrong. The blue letters (A-G) are mandatory, while the red letters (H-M) are more optional, leading to extra kills or loot. The optional bits can be done in any order.
  • Going west first is the most logical way to go.
  • The first room to the west has a curious ambush: If you step in the center, one-way fields will form around you: The spawned undead can get in, but you can't get out (a high enough Jump may allow you to leap over, however).
  • Neither mummy warden is actually named, despite the Objectives listing; they're both merely "mummy wardens"
  • The dread wraith appears two rooms to the west of center, in the Room of Columns.
  • The mummy warden, Theodus, appears to the north (location F).
  • Annelisa Hdar is in the first room to the east (location I); you can also pick up and read the Letter to Annelise.
  • The mummy warden, Omaren, is at the end of the hall behind the locked door to the east (location H).
  • Saerick's Journal is in the northeast room.
