The Selûnite puzzle in the Defiled Temple.

The Defiled Temple (also known as The Temple of Selûne) is a location in Act One that serves as one of the entrances to the Underdark. It is currently being used as Gut's quarters, and Polma guards it. It can be accessed through a door in the Shattered SanctumX: 253 Y: -7.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Defiled Temple can be accessed through its main door in Priestess Gut's quarters, through a cave mouth in the spider pen, or through a small hole in the Zhentarim's stock room.

It is an old temple dedicated to Selûne, which has since been abandoned.

Gut's room[edit | edit source]

Inside a small bedroom is Polma (and Gut if the player was knocked out by her). In a gilded chest near the bed is an Amulet of Misty Step X: 386 Y: 8. As well, a Selûnite Journal is found nearby, which gives information on the moon tile puzzle further in the temple.

Moon tile puzzle[edit | edit source]

A long descent down into the Underdark can be revealed by solving a puzzle in this room. In the north-eastern section of the Defiled Temple is a room with four tiles in the centre. The puzzle is solved by rotating the tiles such that the new moon icons (black circles) are all on the southern-most ring.

  • The puzzle can be solved by interacting with the tiles in the following sequence: (note that this is only one of many possible solutions)
