What to Expect

  • underwater grotto, hard to see depending on graphics.
    • Water breathing is not needed as the adventure provides protective bubbles for all party members when navigating through water areas.

Tips and Misc

  • This is a standalone side-quest, not part of the main storyline. The questgiver is by the entrance.
  • Useful buffs:
    • Acid resist
    • Cold resist
  • This is the third quest in the game that features under water combat, after Into the Deep & Lost at Sea. How it works:
    • You can use melee and ranged combat normally, but your attacks are severely slowed by about -50%.
    • Movement speed in the water takes some getting used to: you start moving quite slowly and accelerate up to almost normal speed. When you stop for fights, etc. you are reset to super slow until you get back up to speed. Jumping or running off a ledge also seems to reset your movement speed.
    • Spellcasting:
      • Fire and Acid spells may not be used at all.
      • Lightning and Sonic spells deal double damage.
      • Jump and Tumble spells are ineffective, and removed when in the water as you may not tumble while in the water, and jumping is severely reduced.
      • Other types of spells work normally.
    • While fire damage from sources other than spells can be used, it is reduced by 100 points, for both players and monsters.
  • If you are a spellcaster specialized mainly in fire or acid spells, you will be utterly ineffective underwater. To work around this, buy some lightning bolt (6th) wands from House P. They are ultra effective in the water, and with a couple of wand mastery enhancements, will one-shot most enemies underwater on normal, or even hard/elite if you're fully spec'd for wand mastery or have artificer wand bonuses.
  • Follow the Map. Find a sealed opening.
    • The green lever is to the south near the start; fairly easy to miss the opening.
    • The blue lever is in the northwest.
  • Approaching the chest at the end will complete the quest.
  • The optionals are all in the west, past the shrine near the warded grotto.
    • The cells can be opened using a Simon Says mechanic.
    • The Sealed Treasure requires unlocking two levers; there's a silver key near the blue lever and a gold key found down eastern path, or you can pick them. Can drop ferrocrystal weapons and rarely minor artifacts.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 39 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣106 ♦189 ♥202 ♠215 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 49-50 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣159 ♦284 ♥303 ♠322 )

Loot

  • Chests: Two
    • One in the Sealed Treasury; requires picking two locked levers or acquiring a key in the north.
    • One end chest; may contain named loot.
  • Collectables: Five
    • Fungus by green lever in south grotto.
    • Rubble in the southwest cell.
    • Adventurer's Pack in the Sealed Treasury.
    • Fungus by blue lever in northwest grotto.
    • Fungus in the room past the warded door.
