Right when you first enter, on the left side of the room, there is a molten face embedded into the wall. He is the Lord of Fire, and he will give you quest 47. Make sure you get as many pieces of amber as you can. Every one of your characters must have a piece of amber in order to use the minion teleporters for free. Also, you’ll be doing a lot of falling in this dungeon, so use Featherfall.
Then go directly ahead and jump down the hole. Then jump off the center platform into one of the side chutes. Start with the southwest chute. Follow the tunnel down and into a room with two chests. After you’re done looting, return to the previous room and jump down the hole in the room.
You’ll be in a room now with lots of holes down and four doors. Explore the passages behind all of the doors. The second (from the left) leads to a hole — skip that one. The rightmost door’s corridor also leads (eventually) to a hole. Jump down that one. Continue exploring, jumping down pits and opening doors as appropriate. There are several stone faces on the walls that you can use to teleport back to the surface if you need to. The corridor leads back to the large room with the four doors that you just left.
Now jump down the hole behind the second-from-the-left door. You’ll discover that it leads to a room you’ve already visited. Return to the large pit room.
Jump down the pit by stone face on east wall (both pits lead the same place), and then jump down the next ledge. Odds are, you will miss the small ledges that are by the doors on the next level down. If so, you will be rewarded by finding piles of gold on the ground, as well as the Fallen Defender. This is the creature that the Fire Lord has complained is warding the doors. On his corpse is a chest key. If you follow the corridor here you will return to the large pit room. Repeat until you do end up on the ledges by the doors.
If you walk to the end of the room on the left side, you will be teleported to a room filled with goblins. Kill them, and turn around from where you started and head up the ramp. This is the ramp you arrive in if you went down the northeast eighth opening from the starting room area. Return back down the ramp and go all of the way down. Unfortuantely, this leads to a dead end. Use one of the stone faces to return to the start, jump back down, and return to the large pit room.
Go to the end of the room on the right side now. This is the room you can also get to by going down the northwest eighth from the starting room. Follow the ramp down and you’ll find a door that, when you try to open it, says “all wards must be destroyed”. Move to the leftmost alcove and open the hidden door in it. This corridor leads to the place where you would go if you went into the eastern eighth from the starting room. Return back to the alcove, head back upstairs and jump in the pit. Look, you’re back in the large pit room again.
From here, you should be right next to another pit (its in the northwest corner). Jump in that one. Follow the steep ramp up, and you’ll find yourself back in the room you just left (the eastern-eighth room). Since you have used up all of the exits from the large pit room, return to the start and go to the room with eight pits down. If you’ll notice that the in addition to the eight chutes immediately around the central piller, there is also a section missing in the corner of the floor in the southwest. Jump into that area. Unfortunately, it merely leads to a room you’ve already visited. Return to the start.
At this point, you’ve been to the areas that the northwest, northeast, west, and southwest eighths lead to. So head to the east eighth and jump down. It leads back to a door in a room that you’ve already been to. Return and jump down the north eighth. At the end of this corridor, you’ll find a Crystal Skull in a chest. This is important. The skull allows you to unward doors. Return to the start. In order to open this chest, you need the chest key you got from the Fallen Defender earlier.
From the start, take the southeast eighth. Take the corridor all of the way down to another room that looks very similar to others you’ve seen. The westernmost niche contains a door in the back. Following this all of the way up, you’ll discover that it leads to the southern eighth from the starting room. In the first room back down, there is a pit in the corner of the room. Jump down it. It leads back to a niche in a room you’ve already been to. Return to the top again.
You’ve been everywhere, but you have to back and open some doors now that you have the skull. Head down the northeast section from the start and open the middle niche door. Then return to the top and head to the northwest section. A door that was sealed before will now be open. Jump down the pit that is revealed behind that door.
It just leads back to a place you’ve been. However, you can now return to the start and talk to the Lord of Fire. He will thank you for completing the quest.
