Description Edit

What a find!

Right here... exactly where my notes predicted it would be.

With any luck, inside this chamber will lie clues to the legendary Coffer of the Promise.

That's right, <name>. It's not just a myth. I believe it truly exists.

I'll explain more later. For now, just give me a hand with these explosives.

Completion Edit

Shake it off, kid.

Happens to me all the time...

You will receive:

  • 8Gold 60Silver
  • 43900 XP

Notes Edit

After accepting the quest, look a few yards to the northeast to see an active Powder Keg in front of Harrison's Mule. Click it to start a cutscene. In a scene straight out of the fourth Indiana Jones movie, a fuse is lit that leads to one keg in the middle of a huge batch. With mere seconds to spare, both Harrison and the player jump into nearby chests to shield themselves from the explosion. The chests are launched south to the Obelisk of the Stars, one of which takes takes out a Sand Pygmy.

As the player interacts with the keg, a pygmy spooks Harrison's Mule. It kicks a brazier, which falls over.
Harrison Jones says: Whoa... easy, now.
Said brazier conveniently falls onto the fuse leading to a big pile of powder kegs. Horrified, Harrison and the player turn and run to the nearby chests.
Harrison Jones yells: Quick, <name>! Into the chests!
As the camera pulls back, the kegs explode! The two chests are launched in the explosion to the south toward the Obelisk of the Stars. The player's chest takes out a sand pygmy on the ground trying to dodge, but acts like a deer in headlights. Harrison and the player get out of the chests and dust themselves off.
Harrison Jones says: You'd be surprised how often that works.

Talk to Harrison to complete the quest. However, he does not offer the followup. Instead, the Sand Pygmy Corpse that the player's chest took out does. There is also an Elaborate Disc to the southeast that offers another quest.

Media Edit

  • The kegs being lit.
  • Explosion at the Tomb.
  • Flying through the air in chests.
  • The Sand Pygmy's demise.

TriviaEdit

The quest is a likely reference to the "nuking the fridge" scene from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
