The Drowned Temple Objectives

  1. Explore the drowned temple and learn the information about Vrogir



The Drowned Temple Walkthrough

 On the northwest corner of Nameless Island is the Drowned Temple, to enter it, you need to kill the Black Ring Portalmaster in a nearby camp. If you sided with the Black Rings (either pretend to be lone wolves or thrall of Almira, or if you rescued the Black Ring followers from execution in the black pits in act two), you can persuade her to stop casting by talking to the Black Ring Captain.

Inside the temple, the path is blocked by numerous traps, you can let one of your companions pass them first, then use teleport pyramid to regroup.

Interact with the alter will curse your character, but also learn some information about Vrogir. (if the altar cursed you, use bless to remove it)

The lever to open the Armory gate requires high STR to operate. Alternatively, if you pass a wits check to see the keyhole on the lever, you can also use the key (no STR needed), which can be found on a dead body (behind the waterfall straight north of the entrance, x311/y432). Use teleport to get there.

 The Act 3 Eternal Artefact is loacted in the southeast corner of the Temple. It's inside the Reliquary.

      I found 2 Eternal Artifacts in the temple. One in a chest hidden at x393 y376, and one in the room with the Black Sarcophaguses.

        Alternatively just cast rain near the entrance and a shock spell to make it electric water. After persuading the captain everyone will turn to leave and as they walk on the water they will all aggro 1 by 1.

        Plus now they are all stacked up, so it's very easy to kill them.

          Easiest method to cross the trap filled room is with wings. I used Ifan with the Vulture Armor equipped was able to "walk" through without setting any of them off. Then I used the pyramids to gather everyone.

            The BEST and SIMPLIEST way to get max xp for this is to:

            1. Discover the submerged temple
            2. Speak to the captain and convince him to move out, BUT DON'T END THE CONVERSATION YET!
            3. Attack all the surrounding members and trigger their group aggro (the captain won't intervene, but if you end the conversation with the captain during the middle of you fight. The entire camp will quit the fight and just ignore you.
            4. Once you've killed the rest of the black ring group and you get the exp for them, end the conversation with the captain and attack him as quickly as possible to initiate a fight with him.
            5. None of this poison nonsense or timing issues. You get max exp and no one ignores you.

                At first I got 60k EXP for entering the camp and persuading the Captain, then I immediately attacked them and got another 20k for killing the Captain and 80k for killing another 2 black ring guys.

                  It took me a few minutes to set up, but the way I was able to engage all four after successfully persuading the Captain to stop the flooding was to use Rain to cover each avenue of exit from the encampment, plus the middle, so there was water everywhere, then have someone standing near the front entrance use Contamination immediately after the conversation ends to turn the whole place into a lake of poison.

                    With 1 character it took me like 30 try to get the exp from the captain (persuade check) then positioning myself side by side with the captain to TP nikor with nether swap into Battlestomping 4 of them and then waiting for the portal master to get in melee range and hit her and get her in combat to finally get all 5 of them killed. If for some reason you go out of range or you die and revive with a Idol they run like Speedy Gonzales, I am saying that because the portal master likes to go back to her rock and if you kill all the other she is too far and just disappear and like wise if you let her reach the top of her rock and then kill her all the other are gonna be too far and will just run to never be seen again. And no I did not have any nades or flasks on me which could have made my life a lot easier.

                      In DE since it triggered the fight as soon as I walked up to those to magisters on the steps, I sneaked and entered until my journal was updated with the quest and then I went back. After that I tried to persuade the black ring captain and was able to get the 50k + 10k for entering the camp.

                        In Definitive Edition, even without persuading the captain, without killing the 2 black rings stationed at the temple, after killing the portalmaster there will be a trigger for the temple quest and you will get the 50k xp. Killing the black rings after persuasion nets the same xp as killing all of them right at the get go.

                          Note about the 50k xp: if you persuade the captain before you walk up to the flooded waters where the 2 blackring are hanging out, then YOU WILL NOT GET THE 50K. If you walk up to the flooded steps, get the jounal update, then go persuade, you will get the 50k.

                              They removed the 50k exp for persuading the Captain on Definitive Edition. Better off just killing them all and be done with it.

                                To maximize the gains; pickpocket the captain for whatever, engage conversation with another character, persuade him to stop the water magic nonsense for a neat 50k experience, and then when he's leaving you do a sweet aoe on as many of his entourage as possible including himself and those will aggro you in a fight.

                                  Persuading the Captain to stop flooding gives you 50K experience, after persuading I killed him for another 20K. Seems like his men ignore you and continue walking away and disappear. So just kill him it's an easy fight.

I know people say that you shouldnt kill alexander or the shallow man because they give you the compleet solution of the riddle and so making these altars become silent yet afther i killed them both i still could pray to all the other altars yet this 1 stays silent. Very weird... Kinda sucks cause that makes my achie for praying to the 7 altars stuck on 6/7 :-(

                                      If you managed to save Nikor of the Black Ring in Dark Dealings in the blackpits, Nikor will vouch for you and let you in

                                        I'm pretty sure you need the key ánd a high strength to use the lever. Didn't work on my mage, worked on my warrior.
