  • Activate the Summoning Stone
  • Destroy the summoned fire elemental
  • (Optional) Kill Agnar - 187XP
  • (Optional) Slay 2 Large Earth Elementals — Bonus (25%): Heroic( ♣140 ♦249 ♥265 ♠281 )

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed, some undisarmable)
  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Known Traps

Trap DCs

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

Tips and Misc

  • The western route is shorter and more direct, but include 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 against the gates and away from the corners will keep you safe from the traps. The chest is locked even after you defeat the ambush.
  • 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.
