Overview

It has become clear that, under the influence of the Truthful One, giants in the Tor are preparing some deadly and potent spell. Enter Gianthold Tor and stop them before it is too late.


Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!

Objectives

* Learn what is truly going on inside the Tor

  • Survive the onslaught
  • Open the path deeper into Gianthold
  • Find and Speak to Snutch
  • Locate the gateways to the dragons
  • Secure the gatehouses
  • Destroy the crystals (2)
  • Slay the Portal Master
  • (Optional) Defeat the white dragon and the giant champion: +16% Bonus.( ♣2,409 ♦4,139 ♥4,263 ♠4,387 )
  • (Optional) Defeat the blue dragon and the giant champion: +16% Bonus.( ♣2,409 ♦4,139 ♥4,263 ♠4,387 )
  • (Optional) Defeat the black dragon and the giant champion: +16% Bonus.( ♣2,409 ♦4,139 ♥4,263 ♠4,387 )

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed)
  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Monsters that have to be killed almost simultaneously (optional: 3 pairs of monsters consisting of 1 giant and 1 dragon each)

Known Traps

Trap DC

  • Sonic traps going up the stairs to north side (leading to blue dragon) can be disarmed.

Tips and Misc

  • The main portion of the quest ends once you've slain the Portal Keeper. The dragons and giant champions are optional and purple-named; they are much tougher than the main part of the quest; you might find yourself unprepared if you attempt to challenge the dragons on Hard/Elite.
  • As of U17, the gatehouse levers do not need to be pulled simultaneously.
  • In order to defeat each dragon and giant pair, you must kill both of them at the same time
    (within about 8 seconds) or the dead one will revive with full life and all the debuffs will disappear.
  • The white dragon is to the west.
  • The blue dragon is to the north.
  • The black dragon is to the east.

Useful buffs:

Bonus XP

Loot

  • Chests: 7
    • 1 in the western section before the Portal Keeper
