Tips and Misc
- To open the big stone wall to get to the boss, turn both wheels on the double stairwell, head back down and swim west. There will be an opening (previously gated) on the right (north) side that reveals a new wheel to turn to open the stone wall.
- Expect oozes. If you don't have Muckbane or the like, use spells, ranged weapons, or throw-away bludgeon weapons, to avoid damage to favorite weapons and armour.
- This quest is worth great XP even at level 4. It's worth getting a group together and repeating on Elite. 10 times still turns in 1000 XP with everything killed and broken. Not bad for 5 minutes.
