Overview

Quest to retrieve experiment logs from the Monouga Laboratory.

  • There are three versions of this quest, based upon which direction you take at the 4-way intersection near the dungeon entrance. Levels are suggested and not required for portals. This quest is commonly done with the Monouga Feeding Pit Quest which basically coincides with this one.
  • It is easy to run solo to the end of the two higher level versions to pick up the log. The lowest level version, however, has dense spawns which makes it difficult to run without getting stuck.

Walkthrough & Notes

  1. Corporal Liao Chen will give you Monouga Laboratory Portal Attunement Gem.
  2. Run to the Monouga Feeding Pits at 9.8S 81.0W, southwest of Fort Tethana (bring your fire/slash weps).
  3. Once inside, take the appropriate path for your level of difficulty. Levels are suggested.
  4. Optional: Pickup Instructions from the ground.
  5. Optional: Ring the bell to summon an Imprisoned Monouga (Large, Huge or Giant) from the Laboratory to the Feeding Pits. This portals him into the feeding pits for an hour, and means there will be one less creature to fight in the Laboratory. You can still hand a gem and use the bell after to summon portal after calling the Monouga.
  6. Hand a Monouga Laboratory Portal Attunement Gem to the Bell.
  7. Ring the bell again to summon a portal.
  8. Follow the hallways opposite of the bell until they reach a dead end.
  9. Optional: If you rang the bell twice, the imprisoned Monouga will be waiting for you. You can then kill it as part of the Monouga Feeding Pit Quest.
  10. Take the portal at the dead end to travel to the level appropriate Monouga Laboratory.
  11. Stick to the middle tunnel, watch out for lots of shadows and virindi. If alone is likely safer to run. The mid version (120+) seems to have a higher spawn rate (many creatures that spawn almost as fast as you can kill them). All the side passages lead to dead end rooms with lots of spawn.
  12. Just before the end is an Imprisoned Monouga (if you didn't summon it to the feeding pits earlier). You are not required to kill it.
  13. Just past the monouga room, pick up the experiment log on the ground. Note that there is no exit portal available.
  14. Return to Corporal Liao Chen and hand him the experiment log for your rewards.

Dialog

Opening Dialog

Corporal Liao Chen tells you, "Greetings, adventurer. I greet you in the name of Queen Elysa, whose command brings me here today."

Corporal Liao Chen gives you Monouga Laboratory Portal Attunement Gem.

Corporal Liao Chen tells you, "We seek intrepid adventurers like yourself, who might be willing to help us investigate a concerning development. It seems that some travelers have discovered a cavern in which drudges have been keeping monougas captive. What is unusual is that the drudges have very sophisticated portal sending enchantments which would seem to be beyond their means. We suspect Virindi involvement of some sort."

Corporal Liao Chen tells you, "Therefore, Prince Borelean led an expedition to investigate this drudge cavern. When he was finished, he had determined a way to reverse the portal sending - to open a portal from that location to the source of the monougas. These portal gems are the result of that determination."

Corporal Liao Chen tells you, "The Queen has commanded that whatever lay on the other side of that portal transit should be explored carefully, with the assumption that whatever is there is hostile. To do so, take the gem I have given you and charge it against the feeding bell. It will reverse the workings of the bell's portal sending magic, and, instead of summoning a drudge and a monouga, will open portals to the source of these monsters."

Corporal Liao Chen tells you, "You are welcome to explore the drudge cave, although many have explored it before now. The Queen seeks adventurers to enter the portal from which the monougas come, and hopefully more fully identify exactly what all of this humanoid activity means to the Isparian inhabitants of Dereth."
Returning to Liao

Corporal Liao Chen says, "Greetings to you again, [player character name]. We could use your assistance again. It seems that some of the researchers want additional information from inside the research laboratory you investigated for me before. Here, take another of the portal gems the researchers created and get yourself back to the lab."

Corporal Liao Chen gives you Monouga Laboratory Portal Attunement Gem.
Bell

You give Bell Monouga Laboratory Portal Attunement Gem.

A tendril of violet energy flickers from the gem to the bell. Suddenly, the gem shatters into a fine powder which trickles out of your hand. You think that the bell now might do something different if rung.

You ring the bell.

The bell's hollow ring echoes through the corridors and the gantry, and a cold purple glow radiates from below.
