Tips and Misc

Walkthrough

Getting Started
  • Walk up the ramps and talk to Foxpaw.
  • If you're going to attempt the machine optional, best to do it now. Foxpaw's lab is destroyed later in the quest, making the puzzle uncompletable.
    • The puzzle has two steps. First, pull "That Lever" on the second floor, and solve a tile puzzle on the ground to light all five runes simultaneously (careful of all the traps.) Next, solve a simple mirror and tile puzzle in the rafters, and watch the machine blow up.
    • After this, a Steam Elemental spawns on the ground floor. Kill it for the optional and the chest.
  • Pull the lever behind Foxpaw to open an exit to the basement.
  • Leave the house and head straight across to a bar.
  • Speak to the Thug to initiate a bar fight. If you like, you can step outside for a minute and let most of the monsters finish each other off.
  • After this, the Sahuagin Guide in the corner agrees to lead you to the Conch.
Into the Maw
  • Somewhere in this underground segment are four crests - an axe, a scimitar, a trident and a hammer. The hammer is optional, and will open the way to Greigur d'Deneith and a shrine later on. The other three crests are required.
  • The caverns consist of three sections: an underwater spike course, a short tunnel full of bear traps, and a collection of small caves containing monsters.
  • Known crest locations:
    • Underwater, at the very beginning or in a hole
    • Underwater, in or just after the spikes
    • On the wooden decking
    • Scorpion cave
    • Gator cave
    • Rust monster cave
    • Rat cave (behind a secret door), will be the hammer crest.
  • Buff up before slotting the final crest - the first boss is behind the door.
Pirates!
  • Pirates have broken in and swiped the conch! Beat down the red-named raptor and speak to the injured elder.
  • Head out, fighting off pirates and axe-wielding skeletons. If you found the hammer crest, use it to open a door to a rest shrine and a balcony where you can speak to Greigur d'Deneith.
  • Now climb the stairs located near the hammer socket door, keep going upwards and fight pirates across the rooftops. You'll eventually get to a large roof with several groups of pirates and raptors - kill the orange-named Very Important Pirate to drop the barrier blocking your way.
    • Yorrick Amanatu is just after this section on a red roof, behind a group of pirates fighting guards.
The Finale
  • Graden Wylkes is in the courtyard, with a couple of other Harbor NPCs.
  • Foxpaw's house is full of raptors and on fire. Ignore it, and head into the warehouse.
  • The back door of the warehouse leads to a pier where the pirates' ship is docked. Clear pirates off the main deck, then head to the bow to confront the Dread Pirate Roberts.
  • Talk to Foxpaw and the Sahuagin Elder. Afterwards, pick up the scroll and conch to finish the quest.

Trivia

  • The names of the two bosses in this quest are references to the book and film The Princess Bride.
  • On its launch, accessing this quest mistakenly required access to Masterminds of Sharn. This was patched out the following day.
