Act 2, Part 2: Adventuring After Troll Trouble

A-2. Verdant Chambers (Solo Visit)

From the capital: 1) W x2, 2) S, 3) SW, 4) W, 4) SW x4. You can make the trip from the capital without resting in 1 day, 5 hours, if you start off fresh.

Hunting in this area during rest: Lore (Nature) DC 20.

This page lists all of the encounters from the Verdant Chambers (Group Visit) page in case this is your first time coming here. The earlier encounters and treasures will not reset if you previously collected them.

Plainoldcookies reports that the Quest: A Just Reward automatically fails if you don't complete it by the time you enter Vordakai's Tomb at the end of Act 4. So make sure to complete this before you go there.

Events
  1. A1) Gap (Mobility DC 22 - 18 exp). A2) Gap (Mobility DC 20 - 18 exp).
  2. Tree. If you are here by yourself, as she asked, the Guardian of the Bloom will summon the enemies at Events F-L. There are a number of conversation options (LG, N, CN moral choices) and two choices without moral choices. If you select “4. Was there a single word of truth in anything....?” that will advance the path to the secret ending. You will begin combat with the Young Hydra at F once the conversation ends (unless you preemptively used Invisibility (2) or drank a potion of Invisibility before interacting with the tree), so make sure to fully buff first.
  3. C1) Wall (Athletics DC 22 - 18 exp). C2) Wall (Athletics DC 8 - 18 exp).
  4. D1) Tree (Mobility DC 19 - 18 exp). D2) Tree (Mobility DC 14 - 18 exp).
  5. Ferocious Wolf x2 (Animal 2).
  6. Young Hydra (Magical Beast 5).
    • On Normal difficulty, it has 53 hp, 13 AC, Fort +8/Ref +7/Will +3 saves, makes 5 attacks at a +7 to hit, and deals 1d8+3 damage. It also has fast healing 5 and a freedom of movement effect, making it immune to most conditions like prone, grappled, entangled, slowed, staggered, and immobilized, but it’s still vulnerable to Stinking Cloud (3) if you're an arcane spellcaster. This should be a very doable battle for a level 6-7 character.
    • Once you’ve killed the Hydra, you can sneak out of the area by turning on stealth or drinking an invisibility potion, and sneaking past the Owlbear at Location H. Avoid the traps, cross the gap at Location A, and make your way to the exit past Location E. You can come back with your full party the next time you're in the area to kill these enemies for exp, but there's no rush. They're not going anywhere.
  7. Ferocious Manticore (Magical Beast 6).
  8. Owlbear (Magical Beast 14). It has a constant Freedom of Movement (4) effect and won't be slowed down by control spells like Grease (1), Web (2), or Create Pit (2). It has a +24 to perception, so give it wide berth when sneaking past it.
  9. Entangle Trap (Perception DC 20, Trickery DC 10 - 36 exp).
  10. Giant Flytrap (Plant 13). This plant can be very difficult to defeat on your own at this level. I recommend avoiding it and leaving the stage through the exit past Location E. You will automatically enter into battle with it the next time you return to this stage.
  11. Redcap x2 (Fey 8). They have a constant Freedom of Movement (4) effect on them and DR 10/cold iron.
  12. Redcap (Fey 8).
Treasure
  1. Token of the Dryad.
  2. Rune-covered Ancient Leather Scrap (Perception DC 9).
  3. Torag’s Pendant (Perception DC 23).
  4. Torag’s Pendant (Perception DC 9).
  5. Potion of Invisibility x2, Scroll of Freedom of Movement, Book: “Of Transmutations and Bodily Poisons, Part III”, Piece of Skymetal. Hold onto this book, since you'll need a copy of it for a later Artisan quest.

These treasures are the same as in the prior group visit page.

Leaving the Area

You’ll likely want to save before returning to the capital, as the solo trip back is just as dangerous as was the trip here. It’s not worth the extra in-game time you’d lose if you use the Group Manager to bring your party here (unless you want to kill off these enemies right now).
