A very high number of random traps. Don't be surprised to see 50+ traps. Since most of the traps are random the numbers for bonuses also change.
- Static traps:
- Ice trap in the rightmost corridor near start.
- Fire jets in the room with the tile puzzle.
- Two lightning traps in the hallway after the puzzle room that inflict knockdown.
- The rest are random, often clusters of pressure plates or bear traps.
Tips and Misc
- When you first enter, speak with Dame Gold first - she'll talk for about 30 seconds while the party buffs up and waits for the door to proceed to become active.
- This quest has many traps. Most are randomly located. As such, a high Spot skill is strongly advised (91 on EE). Very high elemental resistance/absorption or evasion is otherwise recommended.
- You can use many traps against your enemies. Draw aggro with ranged weapons and kite them across trapped areas.
- It is possible to sneak past some monster groups; however, this might prevent you from completing some optional objectives, see Discussion.
- The orange lever in the puzzle room can be knocked or picked. Using it will disable the traps and allow you to continue, but (once you throw the other lever, on the opposite wall) the puzzle can still be solved normally for the ingredient chest.
- Picking up the shipping manifest, found near the end chest after defeating Sturm, concludes the quest.
- Aggression bonus: >230 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.
- Onslaught bonus: 357 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.
- Conquest bonus: ??? (possible, number unknown) or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.
- Tamper bonus: (varies) or more traps disarmed +10% Bonus.
- Mischief bonus: 33 or more breakables smashed +8% Bonus.
- Vandal bonus: 43 or more breakables smashed +10% Bonus.
- Ransack bonus: 53 or more breakables smashed +15% Bonus.
- Notes: Due to the sheer number of traps, some of which are entirely random, it's generally not considered worth trying for the bonus; just do enough to clear a path for your party (usually down the middle).
