For the first chamber, destroy the blue crystals on your left.

In the second chamber, send your best trap disarmer towards the trap while avoiding the waves and pass a DC14 Sleight of Hand check. Move left of the trap and you’ll find the next chamber.

In the third chamber, players will need to disarm another trap and then climb down from the north ledge and destroy the crystal there with ranged attacks.
