Overview

You find a hole in the ground. Judging from the statue and the pennants, the hole is used by Bullywugs. Maybe you should go investigate...maybe there is treasure

What to Expect

Pillar jumping (can be bypassed)

Known Traps

  • Fire traps on the pillars in the water/pillar room (they look like oil gushers spouting from the tops of the pillars)
    • Disabled by turning the wheels in the same room to the symbols that can be found earlier.
      • The wheels give an audible gong when they lock into the correct symbol
    • You can take damage even in the water below, if you are close to the pillars
  • Blades around Lever, after underwater passage swim: cannot be disarmed
  • Secret door DC

Tips and Misc

  • Column Jumping Bypass
  1. Beneath the columns (north wall) is an underwater passageway that leads to a hidden cavern.
  2. Here is a trapped lever (guarded) that drops a ladder in the column cavern; this allows the column jumping to be bypassed.

Secret Doors:

  • After taking north passage from the entrance, secret door on north wall at the hairpin corner
    • Mnelet can be found just beyond this secret door
