Tips and Misc

  • The first fight starts the moment you turn the first corner – be prepared. The fight can be started by a pet left on attack while the dungeon is still loading. This may break the quest and cause it to be impossible to finish.
  • You can safely split the party to check on the employees; all simple NPC interaction, no fighting or social skills involved:
  • Somebody with a high Heal  ♥32:FailHard ♠42Elite ♦42:FailEpic Normal or Spellcraft  ♥35:Fail; 39:SuccessHard ♠40:Fail; 43:SuccessElite ♦41:Fail; 47:SuccessEpic Normal skill should go east to speak with Tiny in the Xen'drik Room (far east) for that optional.
  • Somebody with a high Disable Device or Repair skill  ♥32Hard ♠34:Success)Elite ♦42:Fail; 47:SuccessEpic Normal) should go North-west to the Clawfoot pens to speak with the caretaker there.
  • Optional: If you fix the lever at Clawfoot pens, the beasts will later help you fight the invaders.
  • Optional: There is a locked chest behind the locked door off the last hall to the pens.
  • Either group can swing by the central-north room to visit the boxers.
  • Optional: The "rat infestation" is behind a door in the South-west corner of the Kitchen. This is a fight, but there is nothing else in this area.
  • After returning to the main room and talking to Finwick and Regina, an ambush breaks in. Another four assaults occur at random locations around the building. Active enemies / dimension doors will appear on your map as red dots.
  • After defeating Crusher you'll have only about 30 seconds to use the shrines before they disappear. This time starts upon his death, even if there are other mobs left, so make sure to kill him last. Similarly, objectives that return you to the central stage are activated on the death of the Harpies, regardless of the presence of other enemies spawned with them.
  • Beware of Poison booby-traps left behind by Daask Trappers
