What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed)

Known Traps

Trap & Lock DCs

  • Spikes around chest, in the locked room; control box is at the base of the neary crates
  • Force trap on bridge; control box is past the bridge, on the northwest pillar. As with the third quest, you can reach this trap control box without dangerously leaping the gaps of the traps on the bridge--if you look to the east.

Tips and Misc

  • Don't let the "balanced party recommended" warning at the beginning frighten you into doing this quest at a lower level than the earlier ones. The bad guys come on rather mindlessly, one-by-one, and the end boss has no special surprises. This dungeon is easily defeated in solo and at sub-seventh level.
  • Other than the room with the black puddings, there are NO enemies until you reach the scorpions; after that, the trolls start to appear.
  • Once again, the doors to the rooms up the ladders south of the bridge don't open until the bridge has been crossed.
  • Blizzard may appear once again, just past the first bridge; this time he's worth XP as well as a chest.
  • Yarsnak may appear up the ladder just before the drawbridge.
  • Darksting may appear at the end, near the crude altar.
  • As with the last quest, after this quest, to return to Bruku for your end-reward and advance to the next quest-chain, it is faster to recall back to the ship, and then re-enter Sorrowdusk, rather than run the distance.
    • Note: If you are continuing to the next chain, speak to Bruku twice!
