In the crypt of the burning heart, one of the required mini bosses can be bypassed to loot first. Use caution as there is a sonic trap on each side of the chest. Just wait at the door and the door opens, then closes.The boss will not attack you even after looting the chest. He only is attackable after you use the "Lever" which is supposed to be for opening the door. This is good if you just want to try your luck with the loot in there. It sucks, but you never know, you might get lucky.
(not sure if its crimson or burning, i know its one of those though)
Um, some karma would be nice
