What does this information mean?


This is the Craftsman version of a quest in the Artisan Epic Timeline.

  • This instance is NOT puzzled, one can access all rooms without difficulty.
  • The rats inside will scale to be 10 levels above your level. You need to complete a sub-quest Building a Better Rat Trap to bypass them. Or, if you are level 100 you can just kill them and not bother with the sub-quest.
    • The rats do not see through Ranger Stealth or Invis of Totem of the Endless Void
    • To get past them for the sub-quest, keep close to the walls. You can duck into the hall to the left to wait for the right moment to dodge.
    • Even though they are 10 levels above you, the rats are easy one hit kills once you're geared up at level 110 or above.


  1. Travel to Nektropos Castle. Click the door and choose to enter the Nektropos Castle: Craftsman Errands version of the instance.
    • Complete the sub-quest Building a Better Rat Trap in order to evade the rats.
    • You can kill only one rat per trap use (after you make the traps) but you have 20, so use them liberally.
  2. Collect the following
    • Search the pantries and dining halls for a bottle of demi-sec champagne.
