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

Objectives

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed)
  • Spawning/respawning monsters
  • Runes (optional: require INT and WIS checks)

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • The levers in the four corner rooms are each protected by a poison trap; the control boxes are to the left of the lever (as faced from the center of the room).
  • The chest in the alcove is protected by a blade trap and also a spinner trap

Tips and Misc

  • Be prepared for incorporeal undead enemies - there are 4 wraith minibosses, plus the end fight - bring ghost touch/ghostbane weapons, or casters who can affect incorporeal undead.
    • The Soulless One is a spectre, so if he kills someone, a new spectre will arise.
    • Shades are wraiths, if they slay someone while under the effect of Wraith's Lingering Touch, a new wraith may rise.
    • If you are not careful, you can get overrun with incorporeal undead.
  • When you pull the levers in the corner rooms, three things happen: the door behind you closes, the poison trap in the center of the room activates, and a Shade appears. If you stand around the edges of the room and pull the lever from the back, you can easily avoid the poison, which continues to burst until the shade is defeated. Slaying the shade also opens both doors, not just the one you opened to enter - and there are wights just beyond the new door.
  • If you kill the necromancers quickly enough, they don't get a chance to raise the zombies.
  • The runes to get to the southeast alcove chest are Intelligence and Wisdom (17 required on Elite); you need to use both of them to open the door. And then it's trapped... twice.
  • For the end fight, if you fight from the ramp nearest the shrine, you can easily run back there to resurrect yourself.
    • The chest in the central room is warded; you need to kill the three guards as well as the Soulless One to open it.
  • This quest is actually difficult to solo, despite being listed as average difficulty. The shades are difficult to hit, and their phases of fading and reappearing just make it harder.
