Points of interest[]

Ground floor
  • The ground floor is crawling with imps. You can pacify them with Intimidate 8 or Bluff 8. Diplomacy 9 won't work because Arkemyr has no friends. Be wary of the Ironclad Constructs, as they all pack a mighty punch. The study to the northwest contains a tattered note containing the combination to the vault (diamond, ruby, ruby, sapphire, emerald), together with Arkemyr's notes on the need to investigate.
Upper floor
  • This floor contains Arkemyr's living chamber and dining room. The imp, called Yellow-Eye Three, can be safely pickpocketed for a Translucent Crystal or pacified with enough skills (Diplomacy 9).
  • This large underground complex contains plenty of imps and Arkemyr's facilities. The first by the stairs is the alchemy lab, with lots and lots of odd specimens. The vault is right around the corner and can be opened using said combination, by interacting with the circular panel on the wall to the right of the door. You will need the Translucent Crystal at a minimum. WARNING, there are multiple traps all over the main circular pattern floor of the Vault, make sure you have a character with good Perception like Aloth Corfiser.
  • Going further is the forge with a Steelclad Construct prototype (bring crushing tools). Around the corner and to the left is the animancy lab where Arkemyr continues his odd experiments - oh, and two constructs and a lone soul you can interact with to learn what happens to robbers. Straight ahead is a storage room, with Arkemyr's library to the right (southern door) and mushroom farm with a failed experiment (northern). Grab the Saru-Sichr in the library.
  • Note that the weakened wall leads to the Luminous Bathhouse's boiler room. You can use might or a hammer and chisel to clear it (doing so alerts any remaining imps, though).
