Kevarre the Explorer will give you this quest when you talk to him in the Kalrathia tavern
Kevarre will tell you about a vault he discovered. Inside, there were statues that when rotated
"caused beautiful lights to run through grooves on the floor." Kevarre will speculate that the
vault belonged to Soranith the Eldersmith, and that the puzzles inside lead to a pair of jewels.
If you can uncover the jewels and prove his theory, then Kevarre will offer to give you the
amulet he found in the first part of the vault.
You can find the Mysterious Vault in the Northern Plain of Tears
(The Northern Plain of Tears
#7). In the first room (#1), you'll find the puzzle that Kevarre solved to gain the amulet. The
puzzles in the vault are "tracing" puzzles. That is, you'll need to start at a node and then "draw"
all of the lines without lifting your "pencil." The first puzzle is essentially a triangle, and so
it was no doubt very easy for Kevarre to solve.
The second puzzle (#2) is a more complicated figure with five nodes and eight lines. There are
several ways to solve it, but Figure 1 shows one such way. If you make a mistake while trying to
solve the puzzle, you can click on the "reset statue" on the southern side of the room and start
over. Once you've completed the puzzle, the doors to the south (#3) will open, allowing you to
access a treasure room (#4) and the third puzzle (#5). Inside the treasure room, you'll find
Soranith's silver ring
, one of the two jewels that Kevarre asked you to find.
The third puzzle is even more complicated. It contains nine nodes and 12 lines. Again, there are
several ways to solve the puzzle, but one possible solution is shown in Figure 2. Once you've
completed the puzzle, the doors to the south (#6) will open, allowing you to enter another treasure
room. In this treasure room (#7), you'll find a lectern with a mysterious chant
on it, and you'll also find a big chest with
Soranith's gold ring
inside. The gold ring is the second jewel that Kevarre asked
you to find.
That's all you can do in the vault. When you return to Kevarre in
, he'll praise your success, and then he'll give you
, thus completing the quest.
