Talk:The Kobold's Den: Rescuing Arlos

I know of the two doors, where are the other two located? Updating the map may be helpful to point these out.


From what I can think of:

1 Secret door for Shrine 1 Secret door for optional chest .... Habreno (ContributionsMessage) 18:02, June 1, 2012 (EDT)

On the prision area, there is a ramp in the end that the lower level kobolds use to get to the upper level, and vice-versa. Many years ago, that passage was sealed by two secret doors, to help players to reach someone that fell down. Now the kobolds can open those doors by themselves to reach the adventurers in the upper level. If you search there (or have a detect secret door item/spell active), you receive a Secret Door finding. Spot don't catch this door because usually when you reach there, the door is already open. I need to confirm in game to be sure if it's still valid today, but I remember the old secret doors. Nibelung (ContributionsMessage) 00:17, June 2, 2012 (EDT)
Interesting... Good idea. Habreno (ContributionsMessage) 18:02, June 1, 2012 (EDT)
Indeed, I found them when I steamrolled through the prison ledge. I got to the end and was: "hey, they changed the quest?". Then a Shaman opened the upper door, and the steamroll continued.

I came back a second time, and snuck unnoticed around all the upper-level kobolds. I "spot"ted the upper door (spot skill at ~13 IIRC), but couldn't search it out (at skill level 5). Using my Detect Secret Doors clickie though, I boosted the found secrets to 3 (perception), then 4 (vigilant sight) when I parachuted down to the lower level door.

FWIW, I added a new "tips and misc" item about these "new" secret doors, at the same that I updated the bonus XP.→ Raumkraut (ContributionsMessage) 06:28, June 3, 2012 (EDT)
