You glimpse something looming high in the air above House Deneith just before you enter. The Tower is under attack from an enemy airship!

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed)

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Fire & blades in the northern hallway, past the first shrine; control box can be on either wall, either in the center (above the bench) or just before the second set of fire jets. The flames can be timed, and the blades can be avoided by sticking to the sides.
  • Cold & blades in the hallway to the south; control box is on the east (left) wall just before the second set of cold jets. Again, the trap can be timed (though sticking to the sides is a bad idea here). Sometimes on the west (right) wall just *after* the first set of jets. Checking here first means you only have to dodge the first set of cold jets, not any of the blades. Characters with long jump abilities and good Evasion can leap over the entirety of this trap. Of the three hall traps, this one is most likely to kill a party member, due to the blades from the sides and center.
  • Sonic and rotating spikes around the corner from the twisting ramp; control box is on the north (left) wall before the second set of sonic jets. On Normal & Hard, only the second set of sonic traps is active, not the first set or the spikes.

Tips and Misc

  • In the sewers, puffs of air jet from the pipes, which can send you flying; it's actually necessary at times to use them to advance if you have low Jump skills. Try using your Feather Falling, or send in a more nimble Rogue or Monk to open the path ahead.
  • There are actually two ways to pass through the sewers, four levers total. One set opens the doors, but a second set together unlocks a larger, single gate for less nimble party members. For party members without a good Jump ability, both levers in the second room must be pulled so that the gate is opened and a ladder from the second room's base is available for others to climb up. The gate levers are closest to the gate itself.
  • Ranged attacks from far back in the hallways, just before the traps, can make your Rogue's life easier and take the pressure off a party that has to carefully time a path through an active trap, particularly between the first and second hallway trap.
  • You must destroy the Crimson Moon before entering the upper Tower. Use the lever on Visbane's device atop the tower. (You'll come back to this device in the public instance, from an outside path of the Tower, to use Visbane's Folly for unlocking items with Unraveling Enchantments.) Don't stand too close to the device when the lever is pulled.
  • The Barracks are north or south of the second set of shrines; the controls are in the rooms on the end. You can't activate them (and therefore, can't complete the optional) if the pirates in the relevant barracks become aware of your presence. You should be able to skip these rooms and still get the Ransack bonus by breaking the crates in the two eastern rooms during the final fight. It actually doesn't require sneaking to get past them; simply refrain from fighting near the doorways (including the hallway entrances) and you should be set.
  • Dheren Kiettuc or Rowan Watzun (zombies) may appear in the room at the end of the north branch, at the fork west of the staircase.
  • The Manager (undead kobold) may appear in the room with the open chest (after going through the tunnels, just past the first shrine).
  • Captain Grim (undead orc) may appear in the room with the south barracks control lever.
  • Ahraatz-Ri casts Enervation quite frequently on Elite.
