Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Electrified water in the aqueducts and the endfight, not disarmable
  • Blades by the Adventurer's Pack in the first aqueduct
  • Blades along the north wall of the tunnel past the second aqueduct (heading towards the second shrines)

Tips and Misc

  • Bug: When you first see Urgnonth, he's behind a barrier that has no physics.[1]
  • Bug: Avoid bursting down the dragon too quickly (Ruin, Manyshot etc.) or the quest may glitch and make it impossible to progress.
  • In the first aqueduct, be sure to stay on the rocky outcroppings.
  • In the second & third aqueducts, some of the rocky outcroppings will collapse under you; these are visually distinguishable. "Square" marked terrain will crumble.
  • Kaxith Nar will appear near the end of the second aqueduct.
  • In the third aqueduct, there are three switches together on the north wall. Pull switch one (leftmost) then find the corresponding lever further in the passage and pull it. Come back to the three switches (or, have a party member or hireling stand by the three) and pull switch two (middle). Go further down the passage, find lever 2 and pull it. Repeat this process for the last switch/lever combo. There will be some spread out archers down the passage that will snipe at you as you do the switch/lever actions.
  • The hidden cavern (and artifact) can be found in the third aqueduct, along the southern wall (before the first Lever of three), near the breakable urns opposite side of the; Lever (I) carved stone. It can only be accessed by diving into the electrified water. However, the water is only electrified on the surface by the entrance; the rest of it is safe.

  • Onslaught bonus: 159 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣476 ♦836 ♥879 ♠922 )

  • Tamper bonus: 1 or more trap disarmed +10% Bonus.( ♣317 ♦557 ♥586 ♠615 )
  • Mischief bonus: 23 or more breakables smashed +8% Bonus.( ♣254 ♦446 ♥469 ♠492 )
  • Vandal bonus: 30 or more breakables smashed +10% Bonus.( ♣317 ♦557 ♥586 ♠615 )
