What to Expect

Secret doors can avoid some combat

Known Traps

  • Fire, Electricity, Honey
  • Some traps are randomly placed
  • Magnetic traps can suck people to the ceiling if wearing metal armor. This is easily dealt with by removing metal armor until past the trap.

Tips and Misc

  • At the top of the abandoned tower you find Lady Morwin Elissar who will provide you the task to locate escaped hiding slaves.
Except for XP there is no additional reward attached to this, so one does not have to go back to her after the objective is achieved.
  • The slaves for the optional task are placed in random locations.
  • Minor bug: Note that this quest WILL allow you to enter Part 3 without having officially completed this part by picking up the map on Markessa's table, thereby forfeiting completion XP and requiring a do-over for the arc-end reward.
  • In order to avoid the bees when you get coated in honey, do not step on any of the boards around the the bee hives. Jump in the water to remove the honey immediately.

Secret doors

  • Near shrine immediately upon entering lower dungeon
  • Near Markessa's double + another at the end of the corridor
