  • Go down the southern/west passage to the Shrines for the Second Lever
  • Optional: Behind the gate are 4 slaves. 5 more are at the end of the southern/east passage.
  • Optional: Secret door in the first bend of the southeast passage opens a hidden passage that leads to a room with some bears in a pit, a few breakables and 2 collectables.
  • Go back to the center, to the gem-locked door, which is now open, and kill the chieftain.
  • Grab the Gold key at end boss fight to unlock treasury room, where there will be two chests one of which is Locked.
