I can’t think of anyblowbie ones that are particlarly bad in this way—The Depths chain has some unexpected ones; those come to mind. New players spend a lot of time in quests like Gwylan’s, but those are not too bad to find.Great thread.
Perhaps someone shares notes on best ways to get to famously difficult boxes?
It might be interesting to come up with a list of tough ones. I do not think anyone takes the trapper route of Sunken Sewer.
The traps I hate are in Creeping Death. Either hidden out of the way behind a column or the one where you are sliding down the water into it while searching its high DC. But that is not a newbie one.
Cabal for one has a ‘challenge’ trap and there is a door lock DC that makes House of Death Undone fast/easy or a long painful keyhunt hell. House of Broken Chains also has a high DC locked slave pen.
Other traps that are painful are the magic trap ones that freeze and DoT their victim, like in Rusted Blades, Friends in Low Places, etc. Again, not newbie quests
