Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Magefire cannons (11); control boxes are on the walls near them
  • On hard and elite difficulties barred gates will drop from the ceiling, temporarily locking you in, and maybe keep you in the explosion area of a set charge.

Tips and Misc

  • All enemies here are constructs. Be sure to bring your smiters! Bards with the Song of Making (fascinates constructs) are also extremely useful – plus then you can have fun blowing 'em up!
  • There are a few enemies on the large crates, and the crates cannot be climbed by characters. Bring a ranged option.
  • Infused Demolition Charges:
  • The charges are necessary to complete the "Demolish crates of corrupted Constructs" objective, and also to clear the halls to get to the Paladins.
  • The charges can be picked up from a number of locations scattered through the complex. Any character can hold a maximum of 5 at a time, and more than one party member can carry them. Drag/drop to your hotbar to use, or just click in inventory.
  • Placing the charges takes about 6 seconds. They then have about an 11 seconds delay before detonating.
  • The charges detonate in a wide area of effect, destroying all nearby creates, and also doing quite a bit of damage (10d100+1000 fire) to nearby characters and mobs – get clear!
  • A character can place more than one a time, if the locations are nearby, while waiting for the first to detonate. There is a 10 seconds cooldown, from the start of placing a charge, whether or not the charge is placed (moving or being hit will interrupt this).
  • (Optional) There are several dialog options to lower the force field to access the Iron Fire Bomber optional (Data here):
  • As the Iron Fire Bomber is an Iron Golem, Fire damage heals him. Do not use the Demolition Charges on him, as they do lots of fire damage and thus lots of healing to him.
  • The Iron Fire Bomber comes in a crate. You MUST destroy this for the optional objective "Blow up remaining crates of corrupt armament" and earn the second end chest. The safest way to do so is to cast Dimension Door, plant a charge, and then step through. If you save it for last, the optional chest will appear as soon as the charge explodes, shortly after you've arrived at the entrance. Then you can decide whether or not you want to take him on. Alternatively, a speedy character should be able to set the charge and get far enough away so that the golem doesn't aggravate on him.

Walkthrough

Use the demolition charges to blow up boxes that block your progress. Kill mobs. If you are sneaky, you can use charges to kill mobs (though on higher difficulties, mobs will barely notice). Be aware that you come out of stealth when the charge is set; however, if you plant the charge, you can re-enter stealth before moving away, and will have plenty of time to get to safety. You can either disable cannons, or just destroy them (less XP). Disabled cannons switch sides and may attack your enemies.

The easier optional boss, Corrupt Titan, is in the North-west room, along with a bunch of regular warforged artificers. When you approach, it will come to life and fight the warforged for several seconds before coming under their control, so be sure to hang back and let it do some of your work for you.

The optional extreme challenge boss is in the North-east room, alone. You need to remove the barrier and blow up the crate where he is locked in if you want to spawn an extra end chest (at the entrance) for blowing up all crates optional. You don't have to kill him to get the extra end chest.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 31 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣361 ♦624 ♥646 ♠668 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 62 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣542 ♦936 ♥969 ♠1,002 )
  • Conquest bonus: 93 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣904 ♦1,561 ♥1,616 ♠1,671 )
  • Tamper bonus: 6 or more traps disarmed +10% Bonus.( ♣361 ♦624 ♥646 ♠668 )
  • Neutralization bonus: 8 or more traps disarmed +20% Bonus.( ♣723 ♦1,249 ♥1,293 ♠1,336 )
  • Ingenious Debilitation bonus: 9 or more traps disarmed +30% Bonus.( ♣1,084 ♦1,873 ♥1,939 ♠2,005 )
Notes: On Elite there are enough enemies for conquest if including the Warforged titan zone even without cannons. The tricky task is to delay killing the last Paladin long enough.
The big crates destroyed by demolition charges don't count towards the total.
