Tips and Misc

  • In the Ashtusk and Frostrager chieftans' rooms, there are secret doors that lead to the other room.
  • There are also levers in each chieftan's room that open a gate to the end chest in that secret passage.
  • In the Ashtusk chieftan's room there is a second secret door with a bonus locked chest.
  • Optional: On the Ashtusk side, the "Defeat the Ashtusk Champion" is in the first hallway in the north.
  • Optional: On the Ashtusk side, the "Destroy the Ashtusk Armory" optional is off an alcove in the north. A skill check is required (Repair, Disable Device, or Haggle). On Heroic Elite the Disable Device required roll is 20 (19:Fail; 20:Success). NB: Weirdly even though Disable Device is a trained only skill (requires training to be used). Any Character even ones without the Disable Device skill training can succeed with the (re)roll. Possibly a bug as the roll erroneously sees it as: 0 instead of: N/A for none trained Characters.
  • Optional: On the Frostrager side, the "Defeat the Frostrager Champion" is down the eastern passage
  • Optional: On the Frostrager side, the first door on the left leads to the "Disrupt the Frostrager supplies" optional. A skill check is required (Spellcraft, Search, or Use Magic Device). On Heroic Elite, 6 UMD succeeded.
  • Optional: Yeshelka Frostrager is a prisoner on the Frostrager side. Find her and talk to her to get the Orc Charm of Evil Chaos, which is one of three charms used in Total Chaos to unlock a +25% XP optional and chest.
