Twisted Caverns is a deeper level of Undermountain full of strange new creatures. Remember, It is an open zone and you can use your mount here.

We would love to see any sort of feedback, but notes on environment collision, encounter difficulty and quest flow would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and enjoy!

    I rescued Anton and got the 10 spider silk. I turned in the quests, got to level 71 and now cannot find another quest. Am I missing something?

    Edit: I figured it out. Had to complete the campaign task. Feel silly now.

    The Soiled Trousers of the Lonely really should have an enchantment slot. I can't see anyone giving up, say, Chultan paints for it.

    On the twisted caverns map, at point 1425, 3254, there is the entrance to a cave (like a large hunt cave from Chult), but if you push through the cave, you end up above the whole map on the undeveloped portions.

    I find the damage a low level mob can do very disturbing.


    Edit:
    I think this Companion Power is the problem. When I unequipped it, the damage was looking ok.
    I believe this is the Chicken Companion.

    I got the achivements for killing 50 and 150 Kuo-Toa at the exact same time ... not sure if it was after killing 50 or 150, though.

    Also, why not have a Rank III and give us a "Kuo-Toa Slayer" title ?
    Hoping for improvements...

    Was this quest reward item not supposed to have a defensive slot ?

    Kuotoa thrall whips have this wave crash thing that dazes
    you've spent so much of this game teaches us to get out of the red, too look for 'tells' and this attack has no tell, no red. As a melee, there's no real way to avoid this. could you give us a red effect or tell please, so we can dodge as necessary


    kuotoa thrall whips. have this buff they put on themselves and others that heals them over time, it feels overly strongs as it heals faster than my at wills can damage it, and when you have multiple of these and all your encounters are all cooldown, it gets frustrating when there is nothing you can do about it, and it feels like you have to kill these low level mobs twice. They heal better than a troll does

    Add to that the instantaneous knockdowns and immobilizes from duergar, constructs, and vampires. It makes for a very frustrating experience.

    I am doing the quest Lethal Remedy where you need to run around with your potion on the F key and hit the Kuo-Toa. When pressing the F key the yellow circle displays, but the potion doesn't release. I unbound my bound keys to no avail. I tried the Option on Release and Second Press, but the potion still would not release. Running on my Wizard - Arcanist.

    There are a few design flaws with the quests in this zone that set players against one another. The first set of quests requires you to kill Kuo-toa for ichor, but then later you are given a potion to try on them. Both quests direct you to the same set of mobs so different sets of players are directly competing over the same area, making the whole process really tedious.

    When giving the potion to cure Kuo-toa there are too few sick Kuo-toa spawns, and they respawn too slowly. Most of my time up to this point in the zone just consisted of running round and round trying to find a quest objective to interact with, or quest mob to kill.

    I'm really liking the mushroom grove. It's almost as magical as mine :sunglasses: For a minute I wondered if one of the devs had secretly run my quest.

    Bug Report -> Mimic server

    Sloopul The Kua Toa's audio dialog after completing the alchemists quests has some background voices in it. It sounds like someone is instructing the voice actor.

    Some feedback:
    • The Kuo-Tua are adorable, and I really had fun with the quests here. The voice acting and animations of the NPCs are superb!

    • Casting the potion of the Kuo-Tua is not very intuitive. First you have to press 'F' and then you have to press the left mouse button to release it. It should cast on the first 'F' press

    The final quest for this zone gives you a shirt and pants set, but there are 2 other quests in the zone that do the same thing. As those 2 are side quests, perhaps they can have different rewards?

    Obsidian Oath - Warlock
    A whole lot of other Obsidian toons as well.
