Jump to: navigation, search

Beneath the outward face of the Path of Inspiration is the ugly truth: the sole purpose of this cult is to convert and subjugate the free peoples of Eberron.

Known Traps

Trap and Lock DCs
Search & Spot DCs
Spikes, blades, Mordenkainen's Disjunction

  • The Search DCs for two trap Control boxes within this quest are notably extremely high for their level; being closer to most mid Epic Level Search DC values. Average rogues with 50-55 Search will not find all of them. You may want Mechanic or Wizard/Rogue build with high very Search in your group, if you want to attempt to disarm those two trap boxes. One trap set, which has two Control boxes, with a Search DC of 74 on Elite!; Suspected Disable Device: 87.

Tips and Misc

Puzzle solutions - there are four different variations of the puzzle, based on where the red destination gem is located. Each pair of graphics above shows front and rear of solution for each.
Screenshot of the optional puzzle
  • Useful elemental buffs:
    • Acid
    • Electricity
    • Fire
  • To "rescue Jonas Wylkes", you must speak to him. This is not obvious, as he has already fought alongside you at this point.
  • The end room is directly after the second shrine. The door closes after entering. However it may be re-opened using the nearby lever, just beware that if the traps were not disabled, they will be triggered again by using the lever.
  • There are two optional chests at the end. To get to the chests, go around and under the staircase just before the boss, where you will find a floor tile puzzle. If you solve the puzzle and light the gem as well as the top and bottom circle things, you get another chest and two piles of gold behind the bars - this third chest can also drop blue shards and discs. Once you solve the puzzle, the floor drops out and the pit below is filled with spikes. There is a secret door about halfway up the pit. It is possible to open it and get in using Feather Fall, but far easier if you turn an underwater valve in the water section of the map north of the first shrine, and swim down. There is a locked fourth chest in here with loot.
    • Note puzzle floor and ceiling are mirrors of each other and both need to be solved. Moving some of the lower tiles effects (turns) the unmoveable upper ceiling tiles.
