The Lower Tombs (AR0801)*
Antenos - Bodhi's servant.
Check out the locked chest and a table near
the entrance for some loot.
Pool of Blood
You can enter the pool of blood to gain a nice mace, although you will take some damage, but it is well worth it.
Enter the Pool of blood.
Fetch - a slave in the employ of Bodhi. He does what he is named after.
Chore - in the corridor leading to Bodhi.
Cohn Ta'glaen - wants to be addressed Master Cohn.
Bodhi - you can find her here after you've agreed to work
for her guild.
After finishing the second mission, Bodhi will give you one final task - to kill the Shadow Master himself, Aran Linvail. Aran Linvail is in the basement of the Shadow Thief Guild, so you'll need to procure a key, Bodhi suggests "asking" Gaelan Bayle for it. You are to return to Bodhi when Aran Linvail is dead. Bodhi also says that one of her employees, Tizzak, who is missing as the Shadow Thieves may have him, may tell you how to access Aran Linvail's sanctum.
When you report to Bodhi about the death of Aran Linvail, you'll receive a large experience reward and she will tell you that she can help you find Imoen and Irenicus, although she says not to slay Irenicus until she is satisfied with him too. Bodhi knows that you are a Child of Bhaal, and proceeds to tell you that Irenicus was trying to help you by releasing your true potential and you, apparently, misinterpreted the effects of this for torture. Perhaps more striking is when she tells you that Jon Irenicus is her brother. Regardless, she is set to help you and knows where to find Irenicus and Imoen - they are locked up in the "Residence for the Magically Deviant" or Spellhold, which is located on an island. Apparently Bodhi used the 15000 gold you gave her to secure your, and her, passage to the island.
CONFISCATE SHIPMENT: 28500 exp for each party member.
The main feature of this room is a big pool of blood in the center. Apparently victims are thrown into this room to bleed to death and their blood is collected in the central drain. Tread careful here as the floor is laid out with many undetectable traps.
There are some spiders crawling about. Have an antidote ready in case they poison you. A little ways to the southwest there is a sarcophagus in an alcove but beware - it is trapped and there is a trap on the floor nearby.
Kill the spiders.
This is the southwest exit out of the Lower Tombs. If you take it, you will appear near the Pyramid on the Graveyard. Right near this exit you'll find an urn with some minor treasure and a sarcophagus, but beware - there traps on the way.
Disarm the traps to loot the locked
sarcophagus and an urn.
Spiders and Ettercaps 1
These spiders and Ettercaps are guarding the exit to the Southern Dungeons. When you approach here, if you have Korgan in your party, he will let you know that this is the way to go in order to find his lost Book of Kaza. But before you go there, dispatch the enemies.
Kill the spiders and ettercaps.
Exit to Southern Dungeons
This exit leads to Southern Dungeons within the Lower Tombs. this area is an important part of Edwin's and Korgan's quests.
A little bit further north is another spider ambush, this time the spiders are guarding the entrance to Pai'Na's lair.
Kill the spiders.
Pai'Na's Lair (AR0804)
This is the lair of a Drow Priestess named Pai'Na. She doesn't like you walking in on her and decides to kill you, to accomplish this she directs a horde of little spiders at you. Nothing a Fireball can't cleanse. If you have Viconia in your party, Pai'Na will show her bewilderment at the fact that another drow can watch spiders being killed. Regardless, send Pai'Na to her accursed god and do not forget to scour this room for treasure.
Kill Pai'Na and scour the room.
Spiders and Ettercaps 2
The entrance to the eastern corridor is guarded by more spiders and ettercaps. Dispatch them and carefully move on watching out for traps, well, there is only one trap nearby. This corridor itself leads to stairs up to the Graveyard.
Kill the enemies and disarm the trap.
If you ascend these stairs you will come out on the east side of the Graveyard District.
If you want to see the traps on this level, hover your mouse over SHOW TRAPS.
There is the central room with pools of blood in it and two other rooms, one to northwest and the other to the northeast of the central room.
The small table in the center of this room is trapped so watch out, however some nice items are inside it.
Check the small table and a vase.
Here you can find an empty funeral boat.
If you want to see the traps and hidden doors on this level, hover your mouse over SHOW TRAPS AND HIDDEN DOORS.
The minute you advance a little bit inside the big hall,
you will be assaulted by a multitude of undead when they spring their ambush.
Really pay attention to Wights as they will level drain you, the rest can be
dealt with quite easily. There is also an urn on the east side of the hall and,
a little bit to the south, there is a lone Vampyre - so watch out.
Kill the undead.
After you go through the hidden door you will be attacked by shadows. Slay them all, but be careful - do not get level drained. A little bit past the site of the battle you can find an urn and two traps.
Slay the Shadows and Mummies.
When you approach this tomb, if you are on Korgan's quest
to find the book of Kaza, he will say that this tomb appears to be looted and
that his former companions seemed to beat him to it. He gets really angry at
them. However, simply getting to this area while helping Korgan find the book
will net you some experience. Beware, right near the entrance to this tomb there
is a trap, so disarm it before walking in.
KORGAN SEES THE TOMB: 11250 exp.
This is a usual looking sarcophagus except for one thing - you can open it. Unfortunately this sarcophagus is not being highlighted when you hit TAB to see all the containers so he is really easy to miss. Access to it is trapped as well, so before you try to open it, disarm the trap. Then, if you open the sarcophagus - a Skeleton Warrior will appear and attack your party. Take it down.
DISARM THE TRAP: 2750 exp;
Further down the corridor you will encounter a group of undead, slay them in order to move on to the Eastern Tomb.
Kill the undead.
When you approach this tomb you will see a lich named
Nevaziah, Keeper of Wisdom, and he thinks that you are the Cowled Wizards that
came for his hide. Apparently the Cowled Wizards have found out that Nevaziah
and his pupils were practicing magic without permission and so, Nevaziah was
forced to flee together with his students and books to this dungeon. After the
initial chitchat with the lich, Korgan will step in and ask about the Book of
Kaza at which point Nevaziah will answer that one of his pupils has it nearby.
Kill the lich Nevaziah.
