1. The Elemental Gates
To pass through the Fire Barrier you will have to use a Major Fire Protection Potion. To pass through the Chaos Barrier you will have to use all the other major protection potions.
Explanation: Chaos contains all schools of magic (Arcane, Fire, Frost, Holy, Nature and Shadow), therefore all potions are needed to pass the Chaos Barrier.
2. The Diligent Watcher
Explanation: The Diligent Watcher can only detect living begins, so to pass him unnoticed you will have to be transformed into an undead.
3. The Wall of Vines
Explanation: The coin will transform your character into a forest sprite which can safely pass the vines.
4. The Water Barrier
To pass through the Water Barrier use the Water Stone that you've obtained from the water pool.
5. The Stone Watcher
Explanation: The stone golem is programmed to be hostile to anyone but dwarves.
6. The Three Passageways
After you pass the Stone Watcher, the way is divided in three. Downstairs you will see a gate full of barriers which you can pass only after you get the Sign of the First and the Sign of the Second buffs.
To get these buffs you will have to complete the two puzzles upstairs, the Wisdom Cube Puzzle and the Strange Stone Puzzle.
7. The Wisdom Cube
The Wisdom Cube can be found on the left path upstairs after you pass the metal fence.
Drink Pygmy Oil until you are morphed into a gnome, this way you'll be short enough to pass through the metal fence and reach the Wisdom Cube.
I am the Wisdom Cube.
> What wisdom do you hold?
I have been imparted with the knowledge of the timeless ones.
> What is your purpose?
I am capable of granting the sign of the first.
> What do you require?
My creators seek a most amusing heir.
Summon the pet, use the costume and then talk to the cube to get the Sign of the First buff.
(The cube rapidly reconfigures itself.)
Please place your arm beneath the cube.
> Place arm beneath the cube.
8. The Strange Stone
A strange stone sits before you. A glowing hole in the center is the main identifying feature.
The hole in the stone is at about arm height.
> Place arm in hole.
Your arm looks quite small in the hole, but nothing else of note happens.
If you only use one of the items, the stone will tell you that you need to become even bigger.
> Place arm in hole.
Your arm better fits the size of the hole, but still doesn't quite fill the space precisely.
9. Oddly-Colored Egg
The first thing that you have to do in this final room is to read the Tarnished Plaque. Do not jump into the water just yet.
The greatest of achievements begins with the smallest leap of the mind.
The smallest leap of mind refers to the smallest intellect buff found in game, which is given by the Scroll of Intellect. To use the scroll you will have to remove the Winterfall Firewater buff as both of the items are considered Battle Elixirs.
After you get the intellect buff you can go and loot your Sun Darter Hatchling!
