  • One blade trap in front of this chest (no Control Panel)

Tips and Misc

Walkthrough

  • Find the Torn Page in the room just to the north.
  • Your goal is to collect four crests to open the door to Taugh Ignath's hideout.
    • Each is guarded by one Underlane Gargoyle and some gnolls on sky sleds as well.
    • You need a Soarsled to collect crests which needs flying. Soarsleds are available after talking to Triellin Ravenwing in front of the hideout.
    • The Underlane is divided into four quarters. Each quarter contains one crest, though the exact location is random:
      • North-East quarter: Sword (behind one of three closed doors east of the water purification system)
      • North-West quarter: Hammer
      • South-East quarter: Kukri (may be in sewers near the door which the crests open)
      • South-West quarter: Sickle
  • You pass through the Underlane in a 'S' shape.
  • The water purification system connects the North-East and North-West section
    • After finding the hideout, the Malfunctioning Worker Construct optional is located here.
  • The North-West and the South-East sections are separated by a gate opened by two levers nearby.
  • The door to the hideout is central south. Place the collected crests in the sockets to open the door.
  • Open the doors to the left and right to rescue the Soul-Split Warforged.
  • Kill the boss further south.

Optionals

  • Read the notes dropped on the ground:
    • Three are located before the water purification system.
    • One in the South-East quarter.
    • One in the final room after completing the quest.
  • Warehouse Optional, entrance just after leaving the water purification system.
    • Find the Iron Key a bit further in the quarter, or just pick the door.
    • Use the mirrors to direct the laser beam through the warehouse. The laser bean opens the doors to the side rooms.
    • The levers in the side rooms open the doors to move forward. If locked, solve the puzzles or just pick them.
      • The red gem tile in the floor puzzle room activates a trap in more than one way: A set of flame jet traps activate as well as a repeating knockdown effect, which together can be quite deadly.
  • Return to the water purification system to complete the "Defeat the Malfunctioning Worker Construct" optional.
  • To complete the "Defeat the Wandering Forgewraith" optional move into the sewers near the hideout entrance.
  • To get to the hidden Chest, you'll need to find and pull a lever in the South-West quarter (needs flying).
    • It's slightly south of the west exit of the South-West quarter.
    • The lever opens a gate high above the entrance to the Sewers. The chest and a collectable are inside.

The second half of this dungeon is actually the same locale as the previous dungeon, but in reverse.
