None

Tips and Misc

  • Useful spells: Resist Acid, Cold, Fire.
  • This quest requires either a hireling or at least two players to use the levers. It will also force the team to split at two points in order to advance.
  • Two lever puzzles will require the levers to be pulled simultaneously. A solo player and careful use of a hireling is possible at both of these.
  • Simple Solo Route: The mission can be completed solo, with a hireling, with no DDing or Recalling required, only simple hireling hold ground/pull lever mechanics. At the two places this is necessary, first go through the upper door, then go through the northern door, and you won't get stuck.
  • Bug: since U13.2, when the party split up, if you are on the upper area and too close to the bridge when it is dropped down, you will pass through it as if there is no bridge at all. Going back a bit and then crossing it may allow you to pass.

Solo Walkthrough:

  1. You need a hireling or a pet that you can command to complete this quest. To get the first chest, you need either Dimension Door OR two hirelings OR a hireling and a pet that you can command
  2. Enter the quest and fight forward until you get to a room that has stairs leading up to a lever. Clear out that room, then drop down through the floor and clear out the room beneath the stairs
  3. If you have two hirelings OR a hireling and a pet that you can command:
    1. Park pet/hireling A in front of the lever that is down the hallway to the South then West
    2. Click on the lever to keep your focus on it
    3. Climb up the ladder and head towards the West door
    4. Click on the gear icon of per/hireling A. Don't lose the focus on the switch!
    5. Take a few steps into the room, stop, summon pet/hireling B and park it
    6. Click on the gear icon of the pet/hireling A so you can exit the room. Go to the lever that's on top
    7. Summon pet/hireling A and park it next to the lever
    8. Click on the lever to keep your focus on it
    9. Jump down to the bottom and go to the door down there
    10. Click on the gear icon of pet/hireling A to open the door. Go into the room. You can summon to you pet/hireling A if you want
    11. Fight West to clear the room. You'll eventually find a switch a little West of the drawbridge. Throw it to unlock the lever that drops the drawbridge
    12. Head back East until you are close to the door. Climb up the slanted surface to the bars that separate you from pet/hireling B
    13. Hit 'q' to highlight the lever and then click on the gear icon for the pet/hireling B. While the pet/hireling is throwing the lever, run to the door out of the room and exit
    14. Park pet/hireling A by the switch next to the door and get your focus on the switch
    15. Go to the upper door, click on the gear icon of the pet/hireling A and go through the door to join pet/hireling B. You can summon pet/hireling A to you now
  4. If you have Dimension Door AND a hireling and a pet that you can command:
    1. Climb up the ladder and go to the lever at the top or the stairs
    2. Park your pet/hireling there. Press 'q' to get your focus on the lever
    3. Jump down to the room below the stairs and go to the door to the West
    4. Click on the gear icon of your pet/hireling to open the door, then go through it. You can summon your pet/hireling to you if you want
    5. Fight West to clear the room. You'll eventually find a switch a little West of the drawbridge. Throw it to unlock the lever that drops the drawbridge
    6. Cast Dimension Door
    7. Go back to the room with the stairs up to the lever, jump down to the lower room and go to the lever there. Park your pet/hireling and get your focus on the lever
    8. Go to the upper door, click on the gear icon of your pet/hireling and go through the door. You can summon your pet/hireling to you now
  5. If you don't have Dimension Door and you don't have two pet/hirelings that you can command:
    1. From the lower room, go South and West down the hallway to a lever. Park your pet/hireling and get your focus on the lever
    2. Go to the upper door, click on the gear icon of your pet/hireling and go through the door. You can summon your pet/hireling to you now
  6. Now that you're through the upper door and ready to advance, go West a little way and throw the switch that's on the bars to your left. A secret door high up on the other side of the bars will open to reveal the first chest
  7. Fight West to a lever in the middle of the room. If you've unlocked it already by throwing the switch beyond the drawbridge, then throw the lever to drop the drawbridge
  8. Fight West some more to another lever that's on the wall. Nothing will appear to happen. What did happen is the bars on the floor above you moved so that you can access the second chest
  9. Go through the door, up the stairs and turn right to a door. Go through that to re-enter the room you just left. Move along the left wall until you come to a switch. Throw it to open the secret door to the second chest. The path to it is obvious
  10. Return to where you were, fight your way East to the drawbridge and go across. Go to beneath the first chest. There is an invisible ladder that leads up the left side of the secret door. You have to have a high jump to reach the ladder. Run and jump to land on the ladder, climb up and pop the first chest
  11. Head back East. Eventually you'll come to a lowered gate. There are two levers that have to be thrown near simultaneously to open it
  12. Continue East. You'll get to two levers next to two gates. You want to go through the Northern (right) gate
  13. Past the secret door that leads to the room that may have a shrine in it, there's a switch on the bars overlooking the other half of the room. Throw it to open the secret door to the third chest
  14. Getting to the third chest involves jumping onto an invisible ladder like with the first chest
  15. The gate to the boss mummy is opened by throwing two levers near simultaneously
