The Genesis Dynamo Station in Sharn has been infiltrated by an Illithid Controller. Go there and free the House Cannith employees who have been enthralled by the Mind Flayer.

Spoiler Warning: Spoiler material below this point!


  • Enter the Cannith Power Facility
  • Progress deeper into the power facility
  • Destroy the Reinforced Power Relay Crystal
  • Arrive at the Genesis Dynamo Chamber
  • Defeat the Illithid Controller
  • (Optional) Defeat the Warforged Titan in the Shielding room — Bonus (16%): Legendary( ♣3,130 ♦5,340 ♥5,463 ♠5,586 )

Known Traps

  • Electric beams on the first ladder
  • Electric beams and exploding panels in the relay room
  • Instant death acid pools in the first and last rooms (these are not on the map, since that would end in two big green blobs)
  • Floating orbs (Reality Distortion) in the first, last and optional rooms, applying lightning and force damage.

Tips and Misc

  • The Warforged Carronade suspects an Illithid has seized control of the Genesis Dynamo Station to convert it into an Illithid fortress. Luckily, Carronade is immune to the creature's psionic control, and escaped to raise the alarm.
  • You start this quest by entering a room full of gantries over a large pit of acid, patrolled by purple orbs called Reality Distortions which cause force and lightning damage. The room is also full of Cannith security. To progress, you must slay the Cannith forces, unlock the barrier over the first ladder at a nearby Control Panel (activating a room full of constructs in the process), and hop across a set of pillars to pull a lever on the bottom floor. Afterwards, climb up the ladder to the top floor and pull a second lever to deactivate the nearby laser grid.
    • Cannith humans in this quest have an effect called Spell Damage Shield, which acts as a form of refreshing Protection from Elements, making spell DPS difficult, but not impossible.
    • Avoid falling in the acid at all costs. It will deal several thousand points of force damage per tick, which is effectively instant death, especially as there's no ladder out.
  • Around the next corner, a secret door leads to an optional Warforged Titan. This is a fairly easy fight so long as you keep the Titan at arm's length – it is programmed to prefer its force blaster, which hurts rather less than its blender arm.
    • Once the Titan is dead, head back into the previous room – there's a section where you can hop across a pair of horizontal pipes to reach a locked chest containing augments and cards for the Deck of Many Curses. (This wasn't accessible before, as it was blocked by a blue barrier that deactivated when you hit the console that turned the Warforged Titan on.)
  • Next, you must deactivate a magical barrier by breaking the Reinforced Power Relay. As you damage this crystal, machinery in the room begins overloading, resulting in electric beams and exploding panels all around the room. This does not deactivate when the crystal breaks, so be very careful when ascending the ramp out of the room.
    • Three Release Valves along the ramp can be turned to deactivate nearby traps for about 30 seconds. On higher difficulties it is worth sending a character with high Reflex saves (and ideally Evasion) to pull these.
    • The lever in the next hallway deactivates all traps at once.
  • Finally, you emerge into the boss chamber, and the reason this quest is classed as Extreme Challenge – a boss fight on a tiny platform submerged in insta-kill acid, with waves of Reality Distortions crossing the platform in all four directions. Mind-controlled facility director Annelise d'Cannith will mobilise waves of Cannith constructs, concluding in a second Experimental Cannith Titan – beware its knockback attack, unless you fancy an acid bath! (Unlike most Warforged Titans, the Experimental Titan's hammer attack will always knock you away from the titan, not in a random direction, so it is possible to avoid being insta-killed with careful positioning. A high Balance will neutralise the knockback entirely.)
    • The waves of Reality Distortions always have gaps to avoid the damage. It's also possible to jump over a wave with a high Jump (35 or so.)
  • When the titan is dropped to 50% health, the illithid Sarxazax teleports down to the platform to oppose you. Unless you have some reason to target the Titan (kill bonuses or Monster Manual farming), it is advisable to drop all DPS on it and focus on the Illithid – once this is slain, the Titan deactivates and the quest is completed.
