Known Traps

  • Poison Spell Wards south of the Western Camp
  • Poison Boobytraps south of the Eastern Camp
  • Poison Spell Wards south of the Southern Camp

Tips and Misc

  • This quest appears to scale the number of enemies (like The Weapons Shipment) based on the party size.
  • Acid & fire resistance is useful.
  • The Spell Wards' glow lights up the room, even if they're not 'found' yet; once the last one is disabled, the glow dies down.
  • Barricades count towards your Kills count, not your Breakables count.
  • There is an ambush at each camp after you speak to each Elder. Try to keep the Elders alive (you can buff them prior to the fight, and heal them during). Multiple waves of Deadeyes, Thugs, and Trapsmiths (all of the human variety).
  • The fight at the Southern Camp comes from several different directions, including a red-named; don't allow yourself to get drawn away from the Elder if you're going for that bonus.
  • The force fields around the crests will disappear only when you defeat every last enemy attacking that camp.
  • During waves of attacks there will be trapmakers going around laying bomb-like traps. Neutralize them early or enjoy the surprises while you explore a room.
  • On the way to the Eastern Camp, there is a trap corridor with doors that rise up and can separate the party. Inside are many archers that shoot irresistible poison arrows from elevated walkways. There is a ladder up to the walkways, but you will get plugged the whole way up.
    • The gates do not close if you do not step in the water. By jumping/Feather falling onto the cobblestones hugging the wall, you can avoid the ambush.
    • On EH, the damage was insane from at least 8 archers.
    • On EE, the best way to deal with the archers seemed to be: Hug one wall & hide below bridge. So only a few archers can attack you. Then range them from below and kill them on by one. At least on EE climbing the ladder is suicide unless you got tons of PRR, hp, ...
  • The shrine south of the trapped hallway is guarded by an ambush. Beware if you're low on HP!
  • You can use the Hidden Passageways to quickly make your way to camps you've already visited. You may need to successfully save the Elder at a camp to use that particular one.
  • There is a huge ambush at the end of the quest: red-named supplemented with many waves of support; almost instant red alert. A lot of archers which can be problematic as you cannot kite them and they spread out. They tend to move out of static AoE effects too.
    • The boss seems to call the waves when she gets to certain amounts of damage; it may be worthwhile to leave off attacking her and switching to the trash spawns.
  • The main challenge is the sheer number of attackers - the ability to crowd control is an important tool in this quest, otherwise you get overwhelmed.
  • You can get the "find the lost niece" optional by talking to the Elder in the Western Camp. Her location is randomised anywhere between the Western Camp and the Northern Camp, but as far East as the impassable waterfall in the north-east passage. You will need to Spot and Search her (just Search doesn't do the trick).

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 175 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣349 ♦605 ♥629 ♠653 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 227 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣523 ♦908 ♥943 ♠979 )
  • Conquest bonus: 280 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣872 ♦1,513 ♥1,572 ♠1,632 )
  • Mischief bonus: 35 or more breakables smashed +8% Bonus.( ♣279 ♦484 ♥503 ♠522 )
  • Vandal bonus: 45 or more breakables smashed +10% Bonus.( ♣349 ♦605 ♥629 ♠653 )
  • Ransack bonus: 56 or more breakables smashed +15% Bonus.( ♣523 ♦908 ♥943 ♠979 )
Notes: **Due to all the trapsmiths laying traps and thus increasing the count, a traps bonus may be impossible to achieve.
