Continuing from the Pile of Bones, go back east and up the ramp you came from.

On this floor you will find Adepts, Acolytes and Novices of the Cult, as well as Ice Golems. Go north from the ramp until you hit the wall, then turn east. At the end of the eastern passage is another ramp. Go down here.
On this floor you will face Enlightened, Adepts, Acolytes, Nightmares, Destroyers, a Lost Soul, Ice Golems, and Crystal Spiders, and possibly other lured creatures. From the ramp you will immediately be ambushed by 2-3 Enlightened and 1-2 Crystal Spiders. Go west until the second turn south; you will find 1-2 Nightmares and a Destroyer with a Nightmare at the southern turn. Go south until you hit a dead end; you will encounter 1-2 Nightmares, a few Crystal Spiders, a Lost Soul at the hoist, and many Enlightened. A bit north of the dead end, head west and turn south when you can; you will find Crystal Spiders and a Nightmare. Go south all the way; there are lots of Enlightened here, 1-2 Crystal Spiders and 1-2 Nightmares. Go east all the way and then south until a dead end; just Enlightened here and possibly a Nightmare at the end. A bit north of the dead end, turn west and proceed until the ramp up; there are Enlightened, Adepts, Crystal Spiders, and 1-2 Nightmares. Go up here.
This floor is more relaxed. You will face Enlightened, Adepts, Acolytes, Novices, Ice Golems, Crystal Spiders, and if followed exactly, a single Destroyer. From the ramp, go west until the second turn north. Go north and turn west when possible. Continue west until you can turn north.
