Greezix, the kobold servant, tells you that the key to defeating Shaagh is to steal his enchanted helmet.

Shaagh's helm is being kept in the Cloven-Jaw Stronghold.

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed, some undisarmable)

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Spike trap in the water in the first hallway to the west - Disabled by a lever behind a secret door in the north wall, which pops open a one-shot dart trap opposite
  • Blade traps in the water down the eastern hallway opposite the first shrine. Control panels are behind secret doors.
  • Spike and dart traps on bridges to the third set of door crystal levers. No way to disable them.

Tips and Misc

  • This quest used to be accessible from within part two of the Shan-To-Kor quest chain, but now is its own stand-alone optional quest, accessible directly from the Steam Tunnels (the northern branch, from the first level). Completion isn't required to finish The Seal of Shan-To-Kor.
  • Curiously, once you're in the quest, there's no leaving except using the Recall button or the door at the end – there's no rope or door back into the Steam Tunnels at the beginning.
  • To get Vigilant Sight Bonus make sure you search the left side of the spike traps 1st as doing the right side and pulling the lever will automatically open the left door and you will no longer be able to search it.
  • The clerics are at various points in the hallways, starting past the first shrine.
  • The two witch doctors are down the western hallway, guarding the key. There is a bug that can cause one or both of the witch doctors to respawn immediately after death. They will also respawn in 5–6 minute intervals, so don't park a party member (or hireling) there.
  • The ogre shaman is in front of the first shrine.
  • The minotaur berserker is surrounded by explosive barrels... so be either cautious, or cunning.
  • After climbing up the long ladder, there are a series of ledges you can use to get down.
  • The bridges to the third set of door crystal levers have a set of spikes at either end; when you cross one bridge, the spikes will start on the *other* bridge. Additionally, when you pull a lever, a dart trap will spring once, aimed at the lever.
