What to Expect

  • Points of no return (dimensional anchor)
  • Lava and fire damage
  • Puzzles (interlocking rings of five lights)

Known Traps

  • Slow traps scattered throughout the adventure
  • Spike trap in Doctor Fjorn Bloodstein's medical room cell surrounding the lever (control panel on the wall to the right)

Tips and Misc

Preparation
  • Because of the large amount of fire damage, resistance and absorption for fire can be helpful in many of the fights here.
  • Additionally, enemies very similar to the Inevitable spawn in this quest, and can blind and stun the player on a failed save. Lightning resistance can also help in certain fights.
Introduction

Talk to Dorris to receive an in-quest item, Wand of Greater Exploits. The wand has two uses:

  1. It summons a pad that launches you upwards and then casts feather fall on you.
  2. It tells you if a dimensional anchor is nearby.

Use the wand (repeatedly) to reach the prison above you.

Enter the prison

Prison has two entrances. You only need to clear one.

  • Main floor: The entrance is guarded by a barrier. Lower the barrier by pulling 6 levers in various sections of the ramparts. There are guards.
  • Top floor: The entrance is guarded by a puzzle. Make a star pattern on the inner ring. Fewer guards than on the main floor. Also awards optional exp.
Inside the prison
  • Killing turn-keys drops keys to cells. Optionally, you can unlock cells and free prisoners.
  • You need to locate two dimensional anchors. One is in a random location in the prison, the other is on static on the bottom floor.
  • Use the wand, it can tell you if there's an anchor nearby.
  • Kill the first anchor.
  • Note: The Dimensional Anchors can both spawn on the bottom level, so don’t freak out.
Floor with VIP prisoners
  • Proceed down. Locate Talbron Tewn (on a bottom fiery floor) and get Gold Key from him.
    • To unlock the cells on this floor, either disable the puzzle or use the wand to activate the lock above each cell individually.
    • To disable the puzzle, press the bottom button on the side near the gate, and the top button on the opposite side, and it will unlock all cells.
  • Open the gate on the fiery floor. Use the wand to activate the lock on top of the gate.
  • Use the gold key from Talbron to open door behind the gate.
  • There's a small pool of lava with a lever inside after the door. Pulling the lever, or shooting it with a ranged weapon (if you don't want to take a swim in molten lava), opens a nearby door with a chest with named loot.
Warden Fight
  • On heroic difficulties, the second anchor is fairly near the door, in a small patch of lava.
  • On epic difficulties, the second anchor is a bit deeper, in a field of deep lava.
  • The Warden is extremely hardy. I’d recommend a party.
  • If you die in the lava, your soul stone is teleported to the shrine. (No nearby shrine on heroic.)
  • Worst part: Changing platforms. The stone platforms can shift to different places in the pit. If you are there where stone will appear, then you will locked in stone and can't move around until stone will disappear.
  • Kill the anchor and the Warden.
End fight #2

Killing the anchor opens a dimension door to the ship. The crew plans a mutiny. You can give up the end chest (named loot) to avoid the fight. If you freed prisoners, you might be able to persuade them to side with you. Talking to the First Mate or failing the following checks twice will start the fight.

  • UMD
    • Eleonora Duboix
  • Bluff
    • Philliree(Easy), Vraxina Firenight, Gramma Skye, Randy the Snout(Hard), Kharamana(Very Hard)
  • Diplomacy
    • Fred(Easy), Sycil Weatherworn, Priestess Ionna, Hilda Bronzefist, Sheth, Jaqqu(Hard), Dacassan Cragorre(Very Hard)
  • Intimidate
    • Sakhaa(Difficult), Bron Featherstorm(Hard)
