What to Expect

Climbable rock ladders

Tips and Misc

Gather the four crests
  • Hammer crest - close to start, left off the main path
  • Mace crest - At the top of the open area near the puzzle, at the top of a rock ladder
  • Sword crest - Cave in front of the sealed gate, at the bottom OR in the western cave (scorpions deadend or small pool of water)
  • Spear crest - western cave, western end, in a pool of water, defended by a water elemental

There's a lever/button at the bottom of the first open area (guarded by scorpions); it opens a wall near water elemental allowing access to the Thok Ul'kuur optional. The secret door can be found by search, unlocked and opened. Bug: If the wall is opened with the lever, it still can be found by search, unlocked and closed. A solid wall remains which cannot be opened again so players are stuck on either side of the wall.

Solve the puzzle
  • The basic aim of the puzzle is to get all the four floating spheres set in a horizontal row; the vertical position (height) you need to set the four spheres to, is indicated when a sphere is moved into a position so that it "glows".
  • There are four buttons that control the floating balls, the fifth button in the back resets the puzzle.
  • Puzzle Layout 1: 3,4,4,1,2
  • Puzzle Layout 2: 4,2,2,3,1
  • Puzzle Layout 3: 4,3,2,1
  • Puzzle Layout 4: 1,2,2,3,4
  • Puzzle Layout 5: 4,3,2,1,2
Puzzle Layout 1: 3,4,4,1,2
Puzzle Layout 2: 4,2,2,3,1
Puzzle Layout 3: 4,3,2,1

Puzzle Layout 5: 4,3,2,1
  • The stochastic approach: jump around for a minute or two until it solves.
In the temple
  • Under the temple there's the missing cleric. Optionally, talk to him for some XP.
  • Solving the puzzle opens the door.
  • Run up. Go left or right, doesn't matter. There's a shrine in the center.
  • Defeat the archon, claim the planar eye, and your rewards.
Dragon optional
  • Drop down into the chasm under the temple entrance.
  • Go through some long caves, kill some kobolds... Ultimately, there's a dragon, and a chest (no named loot and mediocre XP). An underwater barrier in the dragon cave appears to have no way of opening.

Bonus XP

  • Conquest bonus: 129 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣447 ♦781 ♥817 ♠853 )

Loot

  • Chests:
  • NPC rewards:
