    Aynone else been trying these? From the ones I've done so far I have an Experimental Gem and a Wall (and what a wall it is...)

    And does anyone know where the "Experimental Room" is by chance?

    for anyone else that is wondering you get a tokin and when you click it opens a grid. you select the path on the grid until u hit a wrong path and it shocks you about 3-4 times as your frozen for about 100-120 pts total. ninja dog form works well or perhaps spell weaving cast the continual heal just before each time you run the puzzle.
    or have someone healing you.

    just so you can get prepaired before trying it out.

    Well, two of the three in the puzzle room are like that, but the last one (which you need to complete the other two before you can try) is like the normal Khaldun puzzle boxes, you just need to find the right sequence.

    The other one I found (in the middle of the Goblin Trap hall) is also different. You need to match a picture by finding the right sequence in a set number of moves.

    And by the way, you do have a time limit on these :)

    I figured out the first two puzzles, but the gem one didn't seem to work for me. I kept getting that I had used all of the right colors and that none were in the wrong place, but I still got the "you failed to solve the puzzle" message. Not sure what I did wrong.

    Do the khaldun-like ones (or any other) benefit from lockpicking? I'm interested in going along if anyone's doing one and wants a pal :).

    Not as far as I know. You just need to solve the puzzle given to you and you're done.

    *mutters about the stupid SA expansion and its stupid new things and his stupid lack of stupid gold to buy a stupid code from a stupid seller*

    Also, stupid responsibility. Having bills to pay and people to feed really cramps one's gaming style.

    Okay, these are both in the Underworld (moongate on top of the Demon Temple)

    To get into the Puzzle Room, you need to first get the key (1). If it's your first time, make sure to read the book first. Once you have the key, go to the Puzzle Room (2). You must complete the puzzles on the left and right first in order to get the last puzzle. Left and right are both closing a circuit, and the third is like the regular Khaldun puzzles - figure out the sequence.

    When completed, you're given an Experimental Gem, which you then take to the Experimental Room (3). I'm not gonna spoil where the entrance is, but just remember, making things disappear will reveal that some things are not at all what they appear :)

    When you get into the Experimental Room, be sure to read the book carefully and memorize the colour/effects, else you'll be screwed right off the bat. You have a timer on the Gem once you start, and if you mess up at any point during the three levels, you'll be expelled back to the beginning to start again. Once completed, you will receive a random reward.


    As for the other puzzle, go further in until you reach the Trap Hall, then enter the small room to the East (C), you should see a table with maps and such on it. Doublt click the compass, then go and stand on the first row of pavers. Move along this row until an arrow appears on your compass. Follow the path carefully, stray and you might not survive. Once you get to the Puzzle Box (4), you have to match a picture by finding the right sequence in a set number of moves or less. Once completed you will be given a random reward.

    Assuming it's like the exodus puzzles, and you're human, cast gift of renewal with the 20 JoaT on yourself before getting shocked. Get yourself an arcane focus from other people that don't have trained spellweaving to make it more effective.

    The puzzles are random, so there are no solutions, but I did find an easier way to the trap hall :)

    So just trial and error, doesn't sound too tough, just time consuming.

    It's not really trial and error, since you can use the golden compass to show you where to go. But if you do try for trial and error, you'll probably end up seeing things in monochromatic before you get to the goal :)

    I guess it would depend on what/how many traps you set off before you get back on the path

    *Kneading Bowl out of the trap hall today, can't do the Experimental for a couple more hours yet

    Yeah, Uvtha just told me about that. Don't mind me though, I don't look at UOGuide all that often :)
