Tips and Misc
- Enter the temple
- Use two control orbs in the corners to open the way forward.
- Go downstairs, kill Laeron and loot his chest.
- Use the lever at the back of the throne to proceed.
The High Priestess optional
- From Laeron's throne room, stick to the left wall to reach underdark entrance.
- After defeating the first drow, turn right.
- (If you cannot handle locked door, turn left instead, swim to an underwater button, swim back to through the opened portcullis and pick up Silver key.)
- Ascend the ramp and defeat few more drow.
- Unlock door to enter a drow city. They attack. Straight way to the archers is well trapped; it is possible to jump up to them from the side, avoiding most traps.
- There are two switches on the platform: The one on the left allows you to slay a few more drow and you can eventually find a locked secret door and a locked chest behind it. One of the rooms has an iron key in it, use it to unlock the locked switch. Picking up the key spawns a pair of shrines in the south wing.
- The locked switch on the right open the way forward.
- There's a spell ward immediately after the door. Soon you reach a large square room with multiple semitransparent floors. Clearing the bottom floor completes the Disrupt the Ritual optional, awards a chest and shrines.
- The final objective in this area is not far. The room closes behind you once the fight activates. Slay the priestess with a significant number of friends, including a Draegloth. You're rewarded with two chests; the right one can drop named loot.
- It's a long run back, you get to fight Slaad respawns (or invis. past), using Dimension Door is probably faster.
The other Underdark optional
- This one is northeast from Laeron's throne room. Bunch of Umber Hulks break a wall when you approach it. You can then proceed into a secret tunnel, ending with another entrance to Underdark.
- Here, slay one pack of drow to complete the optional; you're rewarded with a locked chest.
