  1. Going down the steps to the final arena also lowers the bars to the room to the north. Enter this room and collect the invulnerability in the back. (sector 2)


Five imps will not teleport into the map on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower because their teleport destinations are not flagged for those skill settings.
