Tips and Misc

  • The Mechanic's Path additionally contains several waves of monsters, while the alternate path does not.
  • After the Third Puzzle in the Test of Intelligence (see right), there is what looks like a 4th, an absurdly easy 1-piece puzzle - but it's not. If you "solve" it, two things happen - the floor becomes electrified, and simultaneously you have one more fight. Instead, or if you solve this trap-puzzle (and are told "You chose poorly..."), there is a tiny button on the left side of the exit gateway to the Test of Strength. This button does not register as an object when you use the q key, so you have to find it visually and use it via a mouse-click.
  • Evil weapons will help the end fight, which is against good Archons. On Elite difficulty, Rhi'enne the Planetar has extremely high DR/Evil.
