|Goblins had begun constructing a tower to secure their foothold in Bruenor's home, and had spread out from that stronghold into the Dwarven Valley. The first step to clear ou the goblins was breaking into the goblin fort guarding the entrance to Rugrib's Quarter. We would have to recover explosives to blow our way through their fortifications and then take out the foreman and his verbeeg enforcer.|
Go through the area and defeat all enemies.The first area is pretty linear with just a few spots for treasure. Keep going past the long wooden bridge and into the outpost. The barrel is at the table at the far end of the area.
Battle through to get to the arenaYou can reach the goblin arena via two paths - through the wooden structure to the right and a more direct path to the left. If you take the left path, you'll face more enemies. On the right path through the structure, you will face one difficult horde of enemies and then, you can activate a portal to get you a shortcut to the arena. There's another path below that with bonus enemies and treasure. Either way ends up in the arena.
Pick up the 2nd explosive barrel at the goblin arena.Defeat the enemies there and get the barrel via a ladder just a bit north. Climb up and head left to find the barrel.
Head to the next area and get the 3rd barrel.Head through the portal nearby. In this area, there will be two paths. Head down to the path below and battle through the enemies to get to the accident site. The barrel sitting right there in middle and some goblins will ambush you immediately. Defeat them.
Head to the blocked door to get the last barrelJust to the right of the accident site, there is a semi-hidden path leading to a bridge. Cross it and this will lead to some enemies and eventually, the blocked door. Defeat the enemies there and get the final barrel.
Reach the gate to the goblin fort and detonate the barrels.There are two paths to the goblin fort. One is by the blocked door and another is back at the accident site. There are more enemies and loot in the accident site but either way lands you near the goblin fort. Defeat all enemies in the next area to reach the goblin fort. Set and explode the barrels to reach the last area.
Defeat the boss of the levelEnter the final area and defeat Slugvogg.
Located just to the left, outside of the entrance area.
Cross the bridge to get to the Goblin Supply at the other side.
Hop down to a safe area in the pool of poison. You'll be able to spot a Goblin Supply to your left. Use projectiles to ignite the explosive barrels to remove the poison ooze.
Instead of crossing the bridge, take the path ahead and climb the ladder. There will be a Goblin Supply at the top.
Cross the bridge right after reaching the accident site. There will be a Goblin Supply across the bridge.
Descend down a flight of stairs just before the balcony then take a left turn. Jump all the way down and a Goblin Supply will be at the bottom.
Take the portal located at the left side of the balcony, just before the boss area. You'll be able to spot the Goblin Supply to your left.
Keep heading straight after taking the portal and climb a couple of ledges. The Goblin Supply will be to your right across a poison plant.
There is a Goblin Supply at the right side of the wall in the balcony just before the boss area.
To get to Screetch the Foreman, head down the flight of stairs just before the balcony to the boss area. Take a left turn then hop all the way down. There will be a portal at the cliff. Taking the portal will transport you to Screetch the Foreman so you better be prepared for combat before using it.
There are plenty of enemies and environmental hazards in this stage that may poison you and as a result continuously drain your health. Watch out and use your consumables when necessary.
Ranged attacks in this area is useful. In particular, Catti-Brie's charged heavy bow attack will decimate many areas that are cramped. Otherwise, you're gonna have to rely on quick attacks to defeat your enemies.
This boss, like most of its verbeeg counterparts, is slow and thus susceptible to quick attacks. One good strategy is if you have a weapon with Acid as its element. It will definitely speed up the battle with this boss. Over-all, not a really difficult fight in as long as you're careful.
To get to the Attribute Shrine, head down the flight of stairs just before the balcony to the boss area. Take a left turn then jump all the way down then take the portal at the cliff.
Before you can reach the attribute shrine, you will have to defeat Screetch the Foreman first.
Once defeated, you can now freely take your attribute point from the shrine.
