Tips and Misc

  • Both of the optionals in this quest are on the lower floor. The upper two floors are where most of the actual quest takes place.
  • To finish the quest, you'll need to free twelve captive pixies as well as killing the end boss Golfin. Pixies are usually behind doors covered by webs. There are ten pixies in the main quest and two in the boss rooms - make sure to go both ways at the first intersection.
  • Optionals:
    • Treecrawler is behind a webbed door. Her room contains a chest.
    • The trapped birds are in a room full of spiders with a Simon Says puzzle. Every so often, some of the spiders will begin waking up - solving the puzzle puts them back to sleep; getting it wrong wakes them up.
