Getting there[edit]

To start, players must locate the Curious Bowl and give it one gold to enter the first room. To reach the bowl, head southeast from the
Waypoint (tango icon).png
 Derelict Delve Waypoint , past the hero challenge into a room with ruined mine cart tracks; the bowl is in a small room along the right wall soon after entering this room.

Walkthrough[edit]

Interacting with the bowl will give the player the option to leave 1 gold. Upon doing so, the player will be teleported into a string of vaults, each with a pair of chests:

  • Opening the correct chest in a vault will award the associated repeatable achievement and teleport the player to the next vault.
  • Opening the wrong chest will end the run and return the player to the bowl room.
  • Opening three chests in a single run will teleport the player to the final vault with a Glorious Chest and the final reward.

Notes[edit]

  • The vault runs can be repeated infinitely, with each run costing 1 gold. The correct chest for each of the three guessing vaults is random each run and there are no hints as to the correct chest.
  • Attempting to open the Glorious Chest a repeat time after already having opened it (without restarting the challenge) will result in the player being knocked back.
  • Three 50/50 choices (2 chests in 1st, 2nd & 3rd rooms) means there is 1 in 8 chance (aka 12.5% chance of success) of making it to the Final Room for each run.
