What to Expect

  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Fire trap on chest that spawns ambush
  • Fire trap on grate in first hallway. No panel, just don't walk on the grate
  • Fire traps around summoning stone. No panels.
  • Lightning trap in western hallway, north of gate, two panels
  • Poison trap through first door to the west
  • Dart trap south of gate to western hallway
  • Dart trap on southern wall of first room South-west of entrance
  • Dart trap on southern wall of second room South-west of entrance
  • Sonic trap in southwest passage, two panels

Tips and Misc

  • The western route is shorter and more direct, but includes traps and a locked door. The eastern route requires more fighting, but doesn't require a rogue.
  • The chest in the eastern passage is covered by a trapped ambush. Gates drop and greater fire mephits spawn, and traps aimed towards the chest go off from all four corners. Staying near the walls and avoiding the square between the pillars will keep you safe from the traps. The chest is locked even after you defeat the ambush. It is possible to get locked out from the chest via the gates if any character runs through the center square who is not able to defeat the mephits before the trap is disarmed.
  • The gargoyles will eventually respawn.
  • You have to approach the summoning stone to activate the runes. No attributes required. But watch out for the fire traps that spring up when the runes are activated.
  • When you activate the runes, Mephits spawn in the passage behind you to slow access to any party member attempting to retreat to the shrine.
  • Melee characters should not attempt to engage the fire elemental on the altar. Instead, draw it away from the summoning stone with ranged weapons or spells before attempting to fight it in melee.
  • Beware; the Fire Elemental casts Dispel Magic, so Fire Resistance items are better than spells in this quest.
