Notes & Tips
When you arrive, a friendly troll named Jazon will approach you. You can learn the information of trolls and kobolds here from him. If you kill Jazon, you will get Hide +3. Or you you can ask Jazon to bring you to the troll king for peace talks. (even if you chose to be peaceful, you still need to fight the trolls in the end. However if you chose the peach path you can let Jazon live)
(tip: if you brought Jubilost with you, you can complete his personal quest Renowned Explorer)
If you let Jazon take you to the troll king, you will directly meet Hargulka in dawrven ruins. However, if you chose the violent approach, you need to fight your way to the entrance of the ruins. Defeat the trolls, troll hounds and kobolds, and loot the Old Dwarven Chest Key and Token of the Dryad.
Hargulka, the king of the trolls is waiting for you inside the ruins. You can learn some information from him, but no matter what you chose, eventually you need to fight. Hargulka will leave the hall and destroyed the passage, and let the rest of trolls to flank you. Defeat them and further explore this level.
Kargadd, the arch-enemy of Ekundayo, is at the first chamber on the southwestern side of the level. (Ekundayo also tells you that Kargadd is allergic to the sun, like all rock trolls.) But before you fight Kargadd, you need to decide how to deal with his children. After Kargadd show up, defeat him to complete Ekundayo's personal quest and loot his corpse for Belt of Physical Might +2 and some Soot-Blackened Gloves.
There's a dying dwarf in a storage room near Kargadd's chamber, if you attempt to save him, he will bestow curse on your team. You can also end his pain just leave him be.
Near the Kobold you can find a hidden panel (Perception 20), it reveals a secret treasure room.
There are two rotatable dwarven device on this level, you need to find the correct pattern on the lower level of the ruins, in its classroom. Once you rotate the device correctly, an secret chest will appear in the classroom of lower level of the ruins.
Jazon, the pacifist troll can be found at the lower level of the ruins, you can persuade him to leave, or strike him down with the rest of the trolls. (Jazon is slightly stronger than other troll, but acid can still kill him)
To the north of the lower level, you can find troll's storage room and throne room. In the storage room you can find the whip for quest Nature of the Beast. (However, you can also give the whip to Octavia). In the throne room, you will meed Hargulka and Tartuk. This fight is unavoidable so buff your characters beforehand and summon some minions. If you have Harrim with you, he will destroy the dwarven anvil, and find a valuable gem in it.
