- Your goal in this level is to perform a purification ritual. To do this, you'll need to collect four Embers of Hope (#12, #18, #22) and put them inside four Beacons of Hope (#5). This will cause the Key of Faith to appear on an altar (#15). You'll need the key in order to ascend to
Level 4 (via Exit C) and face the Dark God.
- You won't be able to rest on this level until you've purified it.
- Spirit nagas can poison you, so be sure to have some Neutralize Poison spells memorized.

When you place embers into all four beacons, the Key of Faith will appear on an altar (#15), and plaques will stop burning you (#4). You'll need the key to reach Level 4.

14 - Pressure Plate Puzzle
Stepping onto the pressure plate here (#14) will close the door to the south. To keep the door open, you'll need to throw something through the door so it lands on the pressure plate in the room beyond (#14a). As long as the second pressure plate is weighted down, the door will remain open.

If you step into the teleporter without throwing the key first (when it's pink rather than blue), then you'll just get moved back to the entrance of the room (C1).
