What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed)

Known Traps

Trap DC

  • Sonic traps going up the stairs to north side (leading to blue dragon) can be disarmed.

Tips and Misc

  • The main portion of the quest ends once you've slain the Portal Keeper. The dragons and giant champions are optional and purple-named; they are much tougher than the main part of the quest; you might find yourself unprepared if you attempt to challenge the dragons on Hard/Elite.
  • As of U17, the gatehouse levers do not need to be pulled simultaneously.
  • In order to defeat each dragon and giant pair, you must kill both of them at the same time
    (within about 8 seconds) or the dead one will revive with full life and all the debuffs will disappear.
  • The white dragon is to the west.
  • The blue dragon is to the north.
  • The black dragon is to the east.

Useful buffs:

Bonus XP


  • Chests: 7
    • 1 in the western section before the Portal Keeper
