Tips and Misc
- This quest uses the same map as the last quest, but you must enter through the side entrance, where you came out from the last one. (It's down the side of the temple to the right, keep bearing right and down the stairs/path at the cliffs.)
- The end-boss, Prelate Vendisto, is immune to electricity.
- The locked doors can be picked, or broken with STR 18, or fireball or the like.
- Fire resistance/protection is EXTREMELY helpful in this quest; not only are there several fire mephits, but the Warriors of the Six like to use Scorching Ray.
- The puzzles are not shown (clearly - faintly blueish areas) on the map (right) - the first is south of the first intersection, the second is at the dead-end T-intersection south of the shrine.
- The southeast section leading to the front entrance (where the previous quest starts) is blocked off; no need to go east past the bridge (although you could avoid the mephits in the northwest hall by jumping down there).
- Solving the second puzzle will release several fire mephits; this fight can be avoided by saving the tile nearest the door for last, and jumping back out. The doors will close, locking in the mephits. Alternatively, somebody sneaky could just wait about a minute for the door to open, if they haven't roused the mephits yet.
- Beware returning to the shrine; the mephits in the northwest hallway respawn.
- There's a lever behind the sarcophagus behind the second locked door (to the south), which is easy to miss.
- The route to the exit (heading north from the northeast part of the map) has several fire mephits; if the party is hurting, it's possible for just one person (preferably with fire protection!) to simply race or sneak past and find that exit, fulfilling the quest objective "Find the way to the inner temple", while everyone else hangs back and then recalls once the quest registers as complete.
- The Conquest bonus on Normal requires killing the respawned mephits and wights (in the first locked room).
- Sear may appear by the second (south) puzzle.
- Helga Nightwalker may appear in the locked room with the wights. You may have to kill the wights, allow them to respawn (4-5 minutes), and kill them again to get her to spawn.

- Aggression bonus: 31 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.
