Loreclaw Expanse (jumping puzzle) is located in the southeast portion of the Plains of Ashford.

Getting there[edit]

The puzzle entrance is located southeast of the Loreclaw waypoint in Loreclaw Expanse. Scale the angular ridge to find it. An alternate path lies in the water, coming from the north of the jumping puzzle, and is hidden by seaweed.

The final room with the chest periodically becomes a falling rock trap. I logged out and left a character in it. Once when I returned my character was dead another time she was dying -- and I was able to heal and observe rocks continuing to fall for a 30 seconds then stop.

If your character is parked just outside the cave in a safe spot there will often be no sign if the cave in is currently happening or not. If you reenter the cave you may be killed instantly with no warning, and only then will the game show that the cave in had been happening the whole time.


The rusty giant saw blades
Selection of cups, and perhaps the Grail?

Numerous references to the Indiana Jones franchise are hidden around the puzzle.

  1. The dead archeologist's name is quite similar to Henry Jones, Sr., the name of the titular character's father.
  2. His skeleton wears a fedora, the hat usually worn by Indiana Jones.
  3. In the passage to the final room with the chest, the player passes spiderwebs and there are two large saw blades against the wall, similar to the first trap shown in the movie.
  4. There is a selection of cups sitting on the stone table near the final Grand Chest
  5. A 'leap of faith' from a lions head/statue is present in both movie and puzzle.
  6. The room with the Grand Chest will collapse (also done in the movie), killing you, if you do not leave fast enough.
  7. Captain Ravenwood is a reference to Marion Ravenwood. One of her quotes is "You can't do this to me. I'm an Ascalonian" in reference to a quote by her in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
