The Arcane Tower is located in the Underdark below the Blighted Village, giving players a multitude of ways to access it. Upon reaching the third floor, when you initially press the button your character will note that nothing happens, leaving you to find a solution. And if you don’t know what to look for, you might end up forgetting about this button. Players will need to navigate over to a dog grove located at the southwest part of the Sussur Tree in the Underdark.

In this area, you’ll find a tombstone that players will want to dig up with a shovel. In this grave, you’ll find a peculiar dog collar. Which might not make any sense now, but will all become crystal clear after returning to the Arcane Tower. Upon doing so, you can attempt to press the button again, and find that still nothing immediate happens. Nothing, except the collar you grabbed from the grave vibrating in your inventory. You’ll then want to equip the collar to your character, and then press the button. You’ll be rewarded with: a juicy and delicious raw steak. A feature that must have been very convenient for the previous owner of the collar.
