  • (Optional) Drow Outpost: Slay the High Priestess

What to Expect

  • Large variety of enemies
  • Respawning Slaads in an optional area

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Spell Wards (Spell Wards including; unholy and fire), and a pit of Spikes and Blades in the Drow fortress optional

Tips and Misc

  • Enemies include harpies, a variety of undead (including a mummy mini-boss), lizardfolk, drow (& friends), slaad and umber hulks (both aberrations), mephits, kobolds, a demon mini-boss, and the boss red dragon. Plan accordingly.
  • Fairly long optional area (for the priestess), bringing someone who can open locks can make it shorter, as will Dimension Door.

Walkthrough

  • Enter the temple
  • Use two control orbs in the corners to open the way forward.
  • The first shrine becomes visible on the map from the next hall, but is downstairs, after one more fight.
  • Go downstairs, kill Laeron and loot his chest.
  • Use the lever at the back of the throne to proceed.
  • The southern side passage contains some Lizardfolk and a collectable.

The High Priestess optional

  • From Laeron's throne room, stick to the left wall to reach the underdark entrance via the western side tunnel.
  • After defeating the first drow, turn right.
    • (If you cannot handle locked door, turn left instead, swim to an underwater button, swim back to through the opened portcullis and pick up Silver key.)
  • Ascend the ramp and defeat few more drow.
  • Warning - There is a large pit/spike trap in the middle of the 2nd large room, next, not shown on map, above. It fills the area between the central columns and the front platform. Stick to the middle tiles as you approach the front, which form a bridge over it, and you will be safe. The box is behind the southern pillar of the platform.
  • Unlock door to enter a Drow city. They attack. Straight way to the archers is well trapped; it is possible to jump up to them from the side, avoiding most traps.
  • There are two switches behind the platform.
    • The northern locked switch opens the way north, to continue the quest. It can be picked, or you can go south to find the iron key which unlocks it.
    • The southern switch opens the way south, which allows you to slay a few more drow, break a few more breakables, and (if you need it) find the iron key.
      • At the end of that main hall is a (locked) secret door with a (locked) chest (not shown on map, above).
      • Picking up the key spawns the pair of shrines in the south wing.
  • There's a spell ward immediately after the door.
  • Soon you reach a large square room with multiple (4) semi-transparent floors. Clearing the bottom floor (ramps down behind the "curtains") completes the Disrupt the Ritual optional, awards a chest and shrines.
    • Slaad respawn on the upper 3 floors, but do not follow down the last ramp to the bottom floor.
    • The bottom pool contains acid (of course).
    • The way forward is from the bottom floor. Pick up the chest (and shrine) as you pass.
  • The final objective in this area is not far. The room closes behind you once the fight activates. Slay the priestess with a significant number of friends, including a Draegloth. You're rewarded with two chests; the right one can drop named loot.
  • It's a long run back, you get to anger/fight Slaad respawns (or invis. past); using Dimension Door is probably faster.

The other Underdark optional

  • This one is northeast from Laeron's throne room, in the southeast corner of that side loop passage. When you approach the wall there, "...you hear a rumble...", and a large group of Umber Hulks break through the wall there. You can then proceed into a secret tunnel (not shown on map, above), ending with another entrance to Underdark.
  • Here, follow a much shorter tunnel and slay one pack of drow to complete the optional; you're rewarded with a locked chest.

Back to the main quest

  • From Laeron's throne room, proceed generally north. Make sure to chat with the lost adventurers.
  • Two are in the tunnels not far from the throne room (one in side loop)
  • One is behind a round door with kobolds
  • One is in the hole/cave with the northwest shrine, which is guarded by a few bats
  • The last is in the dragon room
  • As you proceed north, you encounter more and more kobolds, including a boss kobold.
  • Finally, you reach the Red Dragon. An impassible firewall will block the entrance. He calls some more kobolds.
  • Kill dragon and talk to last adventurer to complete the quest.

  • Aggression bonus: 280-287 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣337 ♦586 ♥610 ♠634 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 366-368 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣506 ♦879 ♥915 ♠951 )

  • Ingenious Debilitation bonus: 5 or more traps disarmed +30% Bonus.( ♣1,012 ♦1,758 ♥1,830 ♠1,902 )
