Tips and Misc
- As previously, no shrines.
- The two cells are locked again, unpickable and with no key; however, the door to the east is now open. The kalashtar mentioned as you near it are a race of psionics in Eberron, descended from a group of human monks who allowed themselves to be possessed by good-aligned Quori.
- After the open door, the northern hallway leads to a pit with rust monsters and a chest.
- The Key to Grust's Lair is held by an ogre shaman at the top of the two ladders, right in front of the door.
- The trollish allies are in the last two rooms before Grust's room; the doors are locked at first, but will unlock when you cross the threshold into his room, even if sneaking.
- Corrosion may appear in the rust monster pit; if so, the other rust monsters won't be there - however, they'll spawn if you open the chest afterward.
- Chef Grank may appear in the first (unlocked) room to the south after acquiring the key.
- Champion Preinyl spawns in the southern locked room at the end when you fight Grust. He can count for one of the two trolls which you need to slay

- Aggression bonus: 21 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.
