The aurum consist of four concords -- copper, silver, gold, and platinum. Rumor is they have sent their best to fight for the Stormreaver.

Tips and Misc

This quest is a bit tougher than other Gianthold quests. Running this quest below level 12 is dangerous and likely to result in many deaths.

Useful elemental buffs:

  • Normal: acid, fire, sonic
  • Elite: cold (final fight)

Walkthrough (thanks mainly to Lost Leader)

Clear down through the hallway until you reach the central shrine chamber. Unable to continue forward, you will have to clear out the side halls. These each split into two, so you will have a total of four hallways.

One hall leads to a locked door. This way is optional. Through here is a library with a bunch of dudes. Take them out and get some loot from behind the secret door.

The three other halls are all required to advance. Each contains a rune which is extinguished upon defeating its guardian. Once all three runes are extinguished, you can advance further from the shrine room. The next room is the entry hall for the Patrick the Maniacal’s chamber.

  • The hidden door in the NW rune passage simply allows a second set of spikes to be launched from the trap.

When you enter Patrick’s chamber, you will find him encased in an impenetrable force cube and surrounded by guards and gongs. You must ring all four gongs to destroy the floor under the cube to get to Patrick. The gongs turn on undisarmable sonic traps.

If you want to go for conquest, kill all the elementals. They do eventually stop respawning and your kills should be at about 163 (they don't stop respawning on Heroic Hard, kills were around 250). The remaining kills you need for conquest are spawned by/with Patrick.

On Epic Elite, Patrick has over 118,000 HP. A ranged option against him, away from the direct reach of his elementals, may be a stronger kill option. Before you reach him, you'll need to eliminate the powerful Bards and Rogues that cause stuns and devastating sneak attacks, respectively. Each of the orange-named Concords deliver massive piercing damage. Charm and dominate effects help greatly here.

The end chest will have 1 Ancient Dragon Relic in Heroic difficulty, and up to 2 Restored Dragon Relics in Epic.

Unfortunately, the Quiver of Poison still has these two issues:

  • Once you remove it from a Shared Account Bank, it immediately Binds to Character
  • Once you log out and log back in, it is Bound to that Character

We are working towards a fix, but this is actually a very tricky issue since this is the first quiver (aka: bag-like item) with BtCoE status. At the moment, I recommend placing it in your shared bank before logging out and then only removing it with the toon you want the Quiver bound to.

This binds-straight-to-character bug also occurs when you have bought a Quiver of Poison from the Auction House, and collect it from the mail box. Therefore, if buying a quiver from the Auction House, do so on the character on which you want the quiver.

Confirmed this bug still active after Update 20 hotfix 1.

Per Update 21 Release Notes: The Quiver of Poison is now Bind on Acquire, instead of claiming it was Bind on Equip, as this type of item is unable to function properly as Bind on Equip.
