    While exploring the Kiln Cistern I noticed a doorway in the ceiling above the treasure room in the alchemist room at the end of the quest there.

    Couldn't reach the room, but was able to angle the camera into it.

    As you can see there are some interesting items in the room. A chest, book, key and a chaos symbol on the wall (not pictured). But I couldn't find any way into the room. I was able to barely reach the chest to loot it but nothing else in the room. Any idea how to get into the room?

    Did you try a jump potion? Is that a thing anymore?

    They are a thing still. I don't think it would get me up there even with one. It's pretty high up.

    There's a bug with the chain on the shelf you can see on the ceiling. I can get up there by jumping and then blinking while in midair.

    Jump potions only work in non-PvP towns.

    Anything interesting up there? There's a key on the desk. What does that go to?

    If I remember right, you can jump at it and hit "e" to activate the chain, which then lowers a ladder or something...

    Also, love the DarkStarr symbol. I want one for my wall.

    [edit] Oh yeah, the chest has loot too.

    Cool. How did you get up in there? I tried the jumping and clicking on the chain thing, but that didn't work for me.

    For the love of Chaos -- somebody break into that room already. The suspense is killing me!

    Officially intrigued. Nice find Garfunkel!

    I'll have to explore this area next time I get a chance to play SOTA.

    I jumped onto the bookshelf (used a ring of the frogkin) then cast blink, jumped and clicked on the upper floor.

    As @Alley Oop posted, the chain isn't working.

    I got up there tonight.

    Stand on the alchemy table or shelf jump and then use blink. It took a few tries

    Hmm ... wonder if just casting Chaotic Step would have a chance of getting you there without having to do acrobatics or climbing on the furniture.

    Now I have to remember how the water puzzles work in the cistern... And without an "active" map.

    I did those puzzles today and went up into that chamber -- very cool! Thanks again for pointing this out :)
