- (Optional) Slay Blight
- (Optional) Slay Warlock Slyssaris
What to Expect
- Traps (fixed, some don't require rogue skills to be disarmed)
- Spawning/respawning monsters
- Rune (optional: requires an INT check of 16)
- Poison traps in the open path, in the second room - no control boxes, just have to time it. (Note: On Elite, failure at evading this trap most likely will kill an at-level character.)
- The rest of these are all in the locked path:
- Poison traps in the locked path, in the water courses - again, no control boxes, just have to time it
- Spike traps, just around the corner. Control box on either side of the arch
- Blade trap at the bottom of the first waterway. Control box is just past it, on the north wall
- Arrow trap in the east alcove just before the second waterway. Box is in the same alcove, on the south wall
- Spike trap just past the shrine, in the water walkway. Control box on either side of the arch immediately before it (NOTE: each one only does a couple of rows of spikes). The levers on either side will get the rest, except for the very central strip.
Tips and Misc
- There are two paths through this quests, forking from the first room: an open path (left, to the north) or a locked gate (right, to the south). If you go the open path, you'll find yourself fighting kobolds and, optionally, spiders. If you go the path of the locked gate, you'll find yourself doing little fighting but you'll have to disable a lot of traps. Either way is comparable for effort. The open route has an optional (INT Rune) section where there are spiders (and occasionally a named brown spider). The locked gate route occasionally has a named rust monster.
- At the bridge where four levers must be pulled, the ladder to climb back up after your swim is found in the south west, just north of the SW lever. You have to swim to the back of the west wall to get to it.
- The optional spider section down the open path requires an INT of 16 to open the rune. The optional spider, Ruin, is quite tough.
- Ruin may show up at the end of the spider section.
- Blight may show up at the end of the locked path.
- Warlock Slyssaris may show up in the passage to the south of the water room, after killing Hissahr
- Once you're in the water room, you enter the cage in the middle by swimming underwater and up through the floor of it. When you approach the chest, Hissahr and a few scorpions will spawn, and the trapdoor will close until Hissahr is dead.
- Both Hissahr and the scorpions are reluctant to cross the floor hatch, so one strategy for ranged fighters is to run around the hatch, keeping on the opposite side of the hatch from Hissahr, and fire away your ranged weapon.
- The kobold sentry at the end of the open path occasionally respawns
- You can only get the maximum bonuses for killing or breakables if you do both paths; even so, this will require going down the optional spider wing. A good method is to go down the locked path, open the door at the end, and then return for the open path. This allows you to save the altar for later in the quest, since you can't get back up to the open path after jumping down (except by returning through the locked path again). The locked path contains all the secret doors and traps.
