Known Traps

Trap DC

  • Dropping floors into spikes. No control panels, but you can search and disable the pits themselves, making the surface solid.

Tips and Misc

  • If the final barrier won't break apart, check the pit traps for live mobs that may have fallen down there.
  • Randomly either the east or the west shrine will be there, but not both.
  • Current bug (as of 08/20/2012) prevents completion of this quest if you destroy one of the Corruption Nodes prior to getting close enough to activate the DM text.
    • This should be fixed as of U 15.1
  • There are fewer plant monsters here, but more animals. Animal Bane would be useful.
  • There is one of the optional druids in the first glen, one at each corrupted node, one by the shrine (depends on which side it spawns), and one in the final glen with the final corrupted node.
    • Be careful fighting the druids. They drop a small glowing ball that hits you with a snare with a long duration. These persist even when the druid is killed.
  • Speaking to the injured druid at the edge of the glen ends the quest. Do any optional you have not completed before that (Not really necessary, XP is awarded for the optionals even if completed after the quest is flagged as completed.).
