The ghost of Marteen Worley told you the sad tale of his unfortunate demise, and how his brother suffers in his place. Farrier Worley is being held to the far north west shore, near the wreckage of the Rotten Shark. The prison entrance is just south of there, and underwater.

Tips and Misc
- Contrary to the Overview, the end boss isn't Goldhorn, but instead Major Mal – named after former DDO Live Producer MajorMalphunktion.
- The cannons don't have trap Control panels to disarm them.
- In the first alcove (on the right, located due south of the dungeon entrance), there is a pillar with a (locked) lever behind it. This lever can be picked or knocked; pulling it disables the blade traps for approximately 10 seconds. This is just enough time for a hasted character to pass safely through the trap zone.
- These traps are not marked on the map. Look for the skeletons on the floor as the hall starts, that's where the first of 3 lines of blades are.
- Past the traps is a box to disable the blades.
- Unlike the heroic version, solving the puzzle doesn't award any extra XP; it may, however, be easier than the end fight.
- There are shrines at the Scrags.
- Aggression bonus: 53 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.
- Onslaught bonus: 70 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.
