Irenicus Dungeon Level 1
up to Imoen releasing
you from your cage- You've been captured, and mentally tortured
as you can slightly recall..
After you get out of your cage, go and talk to Minsc,
the way to get him out is to make him mad. Tell him you're
leaving him in the cage, and he'll get mad and bend the
bars, then he'll say that you knew he'd do that, and tell
you "You're a Smart one"!
After that, go to the small room that is off of to the
Southwest, this is where you will find a key that allows Jaheira
to be freed. lots of your equipment is also on the table
and chest. Get it all, and rest. (It's save)
After you rest, and have had Imoen
and Jaheira memorize
some spells (Important) its time to find a way out.
Remember that Imoen is a thief, and you'll need to have her
pick some locks, and detect traps, because there are a few
in this map area.
You'll see a few dead bodies in the hallway, follow it to a
room with a huge alter in the middle- its creating
Lightning Mephits, so you'll need to switch this thing OFF
(See Map for switch location)
you'll enter another room, this is where you will meet up with a Genie
named Aataqah who will ask
you a riddle, the two answers you can give are either
"Push the button" or "Don't push the
button". Either way you will have to fight something
afterward. If you answer "push the button" an
Ogre Mage will spawn who is worth some good exp so choose
that one. The other answer will just spawn some worthless
to the next room down the hallway, where a Sewage
Golem resides. tell him that you're his master,
and he'll tell you that you need the activation stone to
'control' him, allowing him to open the doors to the
central room. next, you'll see a room with two clay golems,
you need to take these guys out, because later on, when you
enter a private room (Near the Dryads greenery area, an
alarm will sound, and they will come running to attack you,
so kill'em now!
Next, enter the room to the North, and you'll see a tank,
where a creature/thing named Rielev.
He is a product of Irenicus' evil
spell effects. Talk with him. He'll ask you to kill him,
because he's suffering - do it. Take the
and the Activation
that is on the table, among other items.
Go back to the Sewage Golem and use the Activation Stone, and
have him open up the four doors to the central room. -
you'll get 3000XP for this. You
can also use the Energy Cell to activate 4 of the Water
tubes and speak to those creepy things. You don't have to,
but they give you some idea of what this freak
Next stop is the Library (See map), you'll encounter some
here, go directly for the magical user, and the battle will
be won. Remember to pick up the
here, then proceed to the next room where a guy named
here, trapped in a magical sphere. use the machine in the
middle of the room to turn the sphere off, and kill him for
Now that you've cleared out the outer dungeon, its time to
enter the central room, where an
is awaiting you. These things are pretty easy to handle,
send everyone up for the kill. Be warned, there are traps
on a few chests here, have Imoen check for traps first
before you go looting! <g>
Now head down the tight hallway and you'll enter an odd
wilderness type room, where
are. They will tell you about the evil dude, and his name.
They ask you to find some
so they can escape, You should have them already, so tell
them you have them and you'll get 9,500XP for that! After
you've talked to them, talk to them again, and ask for the
Gene Flask. (After visiting the Genie. see below)
To the south is a room that is full of traps, again, have
Imoen clear the way and loot this room. (If you didn't kill
those 2 Clay golems, then they will be arriving in a minute
to attack you since the alarm went off). In this room,
you'll find an Air
and more goodies. In the Master bedroom, you'll find the
- this will allow you to use the Stargate.. um, er.. I mean
Using the Air Elemental Statue, enter the the door that was
locked by the Library. You'll be in an odd place, where you
will end up talking to a Genie. He requires his Genie
Flask, so that he may be freed. (the 3 Dryads have it).
Once you return, and give it to him, he will give you
Sarevok's Sword of Chaos +2! and you'll gain a whopping
15,000XP for completing this quest.
Now that this Dungeon is cleared out, its time to head into
the Portal (Stargate I say!), and on to the 2nd level!
