What to Expect

Known Traps

Chopping blade traps (passage running south from southern tunnels)

Tips and Misc

You enter the quest in a small alcove in the northern half of the eastern loop of tunnels.

  • Go west first.
  • In the dead-end tunnel leading west from the second large area, kill the "new chief" and grab the iron key.
  • Optional: In the shrine room, pull the lever to an orange crystal.
  • In the passage leading back between the second and first areas, an alcove has now opened with a red-crystal lever - pull that.
  • Back in the first area, the "goblins' common area", a passage has now opened leading north to an ogre mini-boss and a chest.
  • There is a red crystal on the ground - this is the "Find out where the levers lead" optional.
  • Go back east and use the iron key to open that door, and loop around to the southern passages.
  • Puzzle: Pull the lever below the rune panel once to start the test. All the runes will light (ignore that), then several will light in sequence - remember that sequence. After they have lit, repeat that sequence to light the first gem; the puzzle will then automatically progress to the next sequence. Repeat 3, then 4, then 5 runes to light all 3 gems, and the puzzle is solved.
  • After a sequence is shown to you, there may appear one rune that is high-lighted - ignore that (unless it's part of the sequence).
  • If you make a mistake, you must pull the lever again to start over from 3 runes.
  • Continue west.
  • Optional: Take the windy side-passage south to an umber hulk and chest.
  • At the 4-way intersection, south leads to a shrine (but there is another just ahead).
  • The chopping blade traps are visible to all and can be easily timed.
  • Pull the lever at the T intersection at the end of the passage to stop the traps.
  • West is a fight for more kills, east is the shrine.
  • In the third-from-last room, the lever to continue is behind some crates in the southeast corner.
  • The chieftain, and a chest, will be found in the second-to-last room.
  • The last room is locked: 44 succeeded on EN (50 failed, 59 succeeded on EE). The chest there is also locked: 51 succeeded on EN (59 failed on EE).
