Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Bear traps near the first gate (can be disabled). Additionally, there are two suspended swinging tree trunks that can pound you, while you're caught in the bear trap (cannot be disabled).
  • Bear traps behind the optional puzzle-locked gate.
  • The forge (north west room) has two (acid) trap Control Panels on the ground floor near the chests.
  • The downward-moving ends of the giant vertical gears deal Bane damage every time a tooth strikes you. They cannot be disarmed.

Tips and Misc

  • You will encounter several locked doors; these can be also unlocked with Open Lock or Knock, or you need to scout the area for iron and silver keys
    • The Silver Key is always hidden in the east storage area, the Iron Key is always hidden in the west storage area.
    • The door of the forge (north west room) is unlocked after defeating Stephan Suade.
      • The fire field protecting this room is removed by killing Speaker for the Slain, so this optional is mandatory.
  • For the chest behind the vault door, do not rush to open it; there are bear traps in front of it, and two tough stone soldiers guard it.
  • Forgewraiths are located with the Speaker for the Slain and on all levels of the forge. Since they can float it might be difficult to get into melee range.
  • When navigating the forge you can jump, land, and walk upon the long rail that supports the continuously moving ore buckets (you cannot jump into the buckets themselves). Also a lot of the hanging cage-like structures are positioned to allow you to make short jumps onto their upper surface.
  • The three Special Cargo boxes are randomly located in the forge. Try to track them down while hunting Forgewraiths.

The 4 Security codes (Dice Puzzles)

Be careful with these puzzles! As they start, all of them have only a few steps to solve, but mistakes are not simply reversible (if ever) !

  • The objective for the Dice Puzzles is to get all the faces showing the same value that corresponds to the figure on a "dice" symbol located nearby.
  • The total amount of pips visible within a single puzzle never changes so you must aim to distribute those values evenly.
  • The dice faces go from (blank reset) to showing 1–4 pips. Loosely the dice face you step on will "steal" 1 pip from each adjacent dice that touch it in a cardinal direction and add them to its own face value if possible up to maximum face value of 4.
  • The two puzzles in the room behind the fiery locked door have Control Panels that can be disabled. This grants access to their chest, but to complete the optional you will have to actually solve all four puzzles.
    • The other two puzzles are mandatory for the "Push Buttons" and "Loot Everything" optionals.
  • Occasionally a dice puzzle may bug and one of the columns wander away from its base, the puzzle will still be solvable. It's a known issue refer to: U42 Preview 3: Cogs Explorer Area and Explorer Dungeons.

There are twelve buttons throughout the quest. Really they are touch panels like you'd typically step on to solve "shroud" type puzzles. If the green light/gem above the panel is not glowing then you've successfully activated the button. You typically need to jump up into them as they're placed just high enough that you can't activate them by running straight into them.

  • Two are located in the first secret room by the entrance (with 3 stone soldiers, opened by solving the first puzzle).
    • Turning these two on activates a portal which can be used to bypass the traps at the gate into the warehouse.
  • Two are up high in the North-east corner of the warehouse near the vault door.
  • Two are in the vault (opened by solving the second puzzle).
    • Activating these disables the fire wall between the North-east and North-west parts of the warehouse.
  • Three are in the very North room with Stephan Suade, where the first special cargo is located.
  • Three are in the final room with all the Forgewraiths and the three remaining special cargo.
    • Up ramp to "tower" mid-roof, up ladder, walk around clockwise – as far around as you can go
    • From last one, jump across lamps, follow ledge around, walk toward middle of room, jump onto spinning gear, jump across lights, follow ledge around counter-clockwise – right next to collectible
    • From last one, walk back, jump onto top of chest cage/tower, jump onto platform, climb boxes to trough, jump on light and jump onto pipe curved up – it is in the crook of the bend
      • If your Jump skill is not high enough to make that last jump, you can jump across more lights circling up and around the bent pipe until you are on the other side where the jump is easier
