Known Traps


Tips and Misc

  • Useful buffs:
    • Resist elements: cold, fire
  • Your job is to stop the invading boarders from killing the captain and the crew. The boarders approach in waves along the piers. The best way to try to stop them is to buff the crew (especially the captain, who thinks he is a bit of a fighting legend) and to use crowd control to make sure the mobs go to you and not the crew.
  • Both on the ship and then on the island, be cautious of using spells like Charm Person; the quest does not advance until all enemies have been killed.
  • Once you've killed the second wave of boarders, the red-named will appear.
  • The warpriests love casting Cometfall.
  • The first shrine is on shore once you have succeeded in keeping the captain alive.
  • Continue on the path through the island until you've killed everything and you get to the drow village, where you'll find the spy. You can end the quest here or kill a few more things if you want conquest.
  • The optional treasure is in the Volcanic Caves. Find the Crest of the Scorpion (three possible locations), put it in the door, kill a bunch of dudes, open the door and go and swim for the two chests in the lava tunnels.
