  • If you return to the first golem, you will find it attacking spawned earth elementals. However, when they're all gone, it will turn on you.
  • In a couple of spots, you'll find your way blocked by a Wall of Stone; to get past them, you need to order a Damaged Iron Golem to smash it.
  • The Jewel-encrusted Earth Elemental (Optional) only spawns after the end fight is complete, if you head back to near the entrance.
  • This quest is generally quick, and is a quick and easy source of XP. A hack and slash quest.
