Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Force and Acid traps; 8 trap Control panels, when you follow the Lady in Black through a secret door to a rusted pipework room

Tips and Misc

Optional Puzzle Overall
  • The Quest Journal refers to the location as "Castellan" in the text; however, everything else (location in Quest Journal, character location, quest entrance dialogue) refers to it as "Callestan".
  • Expect certain casters in this quest to cast lots and lots of Fear, so bringing immunity to that is recommended.
Evan is not at home
  • Go up the staircase to Evan's apartment. It's open. He's not at home.
  • Talk to investigators.
  • Walk down the stairs, talking to neighbors.
  • Defeat fiery enemies at the bottom of the stairs.
Bar
  • Go east to tower. Take the down ramp at the 6 o'clock position. Continue east to the bar.
  • Talk to bar owner and all (3) patrons to learn about the lady in black. (If you don't talk to the bartender, the lady will not spawn even though your objectives update.)
  • Leave the bar and drop down.
Bottom floor
  • Bottom floor is full of trash. Optionally, kill some trash.
  • Casters down here will be spamming Fear effects that last half a minute if you don't have immunity.
  • Optionally kill Mysterious Assassins which spawn just north of the puzzle (around ox:44 oy:46). Staying off of the ground level will reduce the likelihood of spawns.
  • Lady in black will spawn in one of five[UnverifiedIcon tooltip.png"five" has not been verified in-game. Please verify it!] known locations, find and talk with her.
    • Discussion about what causes the lady to spawn: DDO Forums.
  • She will open a secret door nearby. This will then appear on the map for all party members.
  • West of the "bottom floor" has an optional puzzle, the aim is "light up" all the Runes for this specific puzzle.
    • Completing the puzzle can lead to some optional fights with ghosts of the past, afterwards when you drop into the sewers.
  • Solving the puzzle also spawns several Temporary buff "power-up" orbs; you'll find the orbs scattered around on various surfaces within the "bottom floor" area. Buffs include: Double Speed, Invincibility, Invisibility, Hate Magnet, High Jump and Quad Damage (Jump around and touch all of the shrine's blessings).
Down the drain
  • As you enter the secret door, you find yourself in a small room filled with pipes. Soon, various traps will start firing from various directions.
  • Before you talk to the Lady, search for and disarm the 8 trap Control panels - this makes the encounter a lot easier. The objective Escape the deadly trap only appears after you talk to the Lady.
  • Beginning to break pipes will NOT make you automatically skip the dialogue with the Lady and have her spring the trap on you unless you break the single pipe that opens the grate underneath her.
  • If you don't have a trapper along, you can break the pipes to open the hatches in the floor. The pipes won't necessarily highlight by spamming the select interactables button, so it's best to try and find them manually by mousing over them.
  • You can break the pipes in any order without triggering the traps except for the last one. There are two pipes that touch the floor - the rest run along the ceiling. Break all the ceiling pipes, then the pipe touching the floor on the right (when you are facing them), and then the last pipe touching the floor on the left. That will open the grate and you can drop down before the traps start firing.
  • The left hand path is safer. The right hand path has spikes; if you stay on the left-hand-side of the right-hand path, you will land on a ledge with an unlocked chest. Defeat the rust monster (optional) that spawns to open the chest.
The sewers
  • You land in the sewers. There's a pair of shrines and a friendly half-orc contemplating how to open a door.
  • Kill some undead rats and rust monsters. Turn three valves to open the door. Be sure to talk to Ash before pulling both valves with crystals if you want the optional XP.
  • Continue past the door; more sewage sliding.
End fight
  • Kill enemies and protect Evan Greybeard.
  • Talk with Even Greybeard and then Thora to conclude the adventure.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 103 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♦610 ♥634 ♠658 )
  • Tamper bonus: 5 or more traps disarmed +10% Bonus.( ♦610 ♥634 ♠658 )
  • Neutralization bonus: 6 or more traps disarmed +20% Bonus.( ♦1,220 ♥1,268 ♠1,316 )
  • Ingenious Debilitation bonus: 7 or more traps disarmed +30% Bonus.( ♦1,830 ♥1,902 ♠1,974 )

  • one for optional Rusty
  • one end chest

    • Adventurer's Pack and Rubble in the north in the Slums (approaching them triggers an ambush)
