What to Expect

  • Traps (1 fixed and 1 random)
  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Runes (optional: require INT checks)

Known Traps

Search & Spot DCs for Traps and Secret Door
Open Lock and Disable Device DCs

  • Skill DCs and pictures of all traps and control panel locations, locked doors, and secret doors can be found in the above links by hovering over the description text.
  • Dual Blade & Cold trap guarding the chest behind the locked door in the west wing; control panel is behind the chest on the south wall. (not guaranteed to spawn)
  • Spike trap around the chest with the master key (easily avoidable if you stay off the dais while opening the chest); control panel is to the left (north) of the chest.

Tips and Misc

  • The North Ward is still open, so there's no need to go into the West Ward unless you want the chest or the optionals.
  • The master key is in a room behind a secret door in the North Ward. The spot and search DCs are both -5, so the mission can be completed even if you haven't leveled those skills.
  • On Hard and Elite difficulties, entering the secret door may prompt the dead Keeper of the Sanctuary to attack.
  • The chest in the western room of the North Ward, near where you found the note in the last quest, is open and empty, even if you didn't loot it earlier.
  • A Ghost touch weapon is advisable as there are a number of Shadows that have replaced the Skeletons in the old version.
  • Silver weapons can also be useful as Fitzwood turns into a Werewolf on being questioned.
  • Watch out for the undead ambush in the corner of the East Ward. It can be difficult for low level or new players.
  • The shrine in the East Ward is locked by a pair of runes (INT 16 required). The one in the South Ward is behind a locked door.
  • There is one noteIcon tooltip.png
    East Ward note
    to read near the shrine in the East Ward.
  • (Optional): Upon completion of the last optional objective, "Return to the Sanctuary exit", Bishop Thaddeus Graylight appears near the gate. Speaking to him grants a reward and bestows the next quest in the chain.
  • If you leave the quest without talking to Thaddeus Graylight you have to visit Archbishop Dryden to progress the story.
