Tips and Misc

When you first enter the hut, you don't need to buff or worry about combat until you're good and ready for it. Nothing happens until you actually approach the hags and their circle (as defined by the 4 wooden pillars in the hut). Then they begin a long explanation of the situation - over a minute long. Only once they are done with their speeches do you then fall into the "soul bag" - and you still have all the time you want to buff up while you choose your first combat challenge. The only caveat is that you cannot summon hires once you fall into the soul bag, so do that while the hags are still talking about you (how rude!).

To exit the soul bag, you must help at least one initiate. Each initiate helped will assist you in the final battle. Of the four, Thel Shattertusk's is probably the easiest, with no casters and a wide, flat combat area.

  • If you initially fail at his test, speak to him again and follow the options about his "anger". This will allow you to enter his mind and proceed normally.
Solution for tile puzzle
Solution for pillar puzzle
Shortest solution for pillar puzzle
  • The mirror puzzle is the first one and must be done to reach the others. Activate the lever in the corner and manipulate the mirrors to power the crystal. Every properly turned mirror will spawn a few monsters at the next mirror. One of the mirrors is already oriented to cause a double pull (because it's already aiming at another mirror). Don't stand in the laser, it deals heavy untyped damage; this is made worse as the area is fairly tight.
  • Tile puzzle (solution on this page). Must be completed.
  • Jumping puzzle (solution on this page). The hardest of the five puzzles. Unnecessary unless you're after the XP optional.
  • Five floor buttons, as seen in Tea Party. Run around in a circle, touching each button once. A Chronic Worry will spawn in the centre. Must be completed.
  • Simon / Memory puzzle with locked runes. Activate the lever beside the runes and repeat the flashing pattern. Three sequences must be replicated; the first has 3 flashes and the last has 5. Must be completed.
  • When four puzzles are complete, jump off the edge of the platform to face the Dretch Bargaining. Or finish the fifth puzzle for the optional XP bonus, then jump.


Once you help at least one NPC, a rip appears. Click the rip to return to the hags. Defeat the hags to conclude the quest. Prioritise Condescending Cadence, she can heal the other hags.

NOTE: Some players are reporting that the rip in the seam cannot be clicked. You can select and use the rip with the appropriate keyboard keys to escape the soul bag. This will presumably be fixed in a future patch or update.

Bonus XP

  • Discreet bonus: 37+ or fewer monsters killed +5% Bonus.( ♣33 ♦59 ♥64 ♠68 )

Loot

  • Chests: Two
    • One end chest with named loot
    • Second optional end chest with named loot, if you help all NPCs before ripping the bag.
  • NPC rewards: Standard
