Venture in to the Twilight Valleys, new home of the Windlasher Gnolls, and seek out any missing members of the Twelve.


Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!

Objectives

  • Locate the Twilight Valleys
  • Defeat Killerog
  • Search for any members of The Twelve
  • Open the deeper passages
  • Locate the Second Valley
  • Open the deepest passages
  • Defeat the Devil assault
  • Defeat the Orthon, Crean
  • Speak to Paetus
  • Find the upper levels
  • Defeat the Windlasher Mystics
  • Find the Infernal Pact
  • Meet Paetus at the Mystic's gateway
  • Slay the mystics to open the way
  • (Failure) Keep Paetus Alive

What to Expect

  • Trap rooms (fixed)
  • Overlapping floors
  • Protect an NPC (mandatory)
  • Quest failure (if Paetus dies)
  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Tips and Misc

  • The shrine in the southern (first) valley is on the upper floor. You won't be able to reach it the first time you enter the valley.
  • The shrine in the northeast (second) valley is below the ground floor. To reach it, jump down into the water.
  • Useful buffs:
    • Acid
    • Cold
    • Electric
    • Fire
    • Death Ward
  • Paetus is a spellcaster with little in the way of defenses that generates about as much aggro as Coyle Lovell, patron saint of escort mission haters. Before entering the last door for the end-fight, you'll need to buff and babysit him with your healer at all times. Keeping your party's kill team eliminating foes well ahead of him will also limit his ability to kill himself.
  • When opening the door where Paetus reappears for the end-fight, have your party enter immediately. Don't linger too close to the door as air elementals appear and may blow you off the floor to land on the first floor, where it will be a long, long run back to the end.
  • On subsequent stone and ingredient farming runs, quest failure from letting Paetus die doesn't matter, you can continue to the final fight and get the chest as the quest doesn't automatically recall you on failure.
