Tips and Misc
- The archer Shar Worshippers use a frost bow; bring cold resist.
- The Disciples are clerics. This means they have some self healing ability, making it a little more challenging to get their health low enough to capture. It also means if you leave them alone they will fully recover.
- To capture a Disciple of Shar, you must first attack them. When they take enough damage, they'll surrender, stop fighting, and stand there with a stunned symbol overhead. To actually capture them, you must then speak to them.
- The Hidden Cavern is behind a secret door on the western side of the map, past some wolves (the spur south of the shrine). There are several (up to 6 on Elite) orange-named mountain lions and a chest; killing the lions unlocks the chest, and opening the chest solves the optional.
- Several Shar Worshippers will spawn near the junction leading to the cavern on your way back out.
- There's a point of no return after the final two Shar Disciples.
