Tips and Misc

  • On completion of each side you must destroy the crystals in the towers you are teleported to, to gain completion status.
  • Trying to open a fake chest will drop you and the party around you into an ambush, and lock other out with a black forcefield
  • cracking the floor to the dropdown in the dragon cage will put up the forcefield near ambush again
    so people can't join in after this
  • There seems to be a bug with Mentau, if you kill him without using the item, you keep the plaht debuff, even after death, relog seems the only way to fix it.

  1. Defeat High Priest to gain access to:
  2. Defeat Cholthulzz to gain access to:
  3. Defeat Cinnis to gain access to:

      (Available after you defeat Mentau, used to aid in defeating High Priest of Vol: summons a vampiric bane flesh golem; this golem is aggressive towards your party, but will choose to attack the High Priest of Vol if it is present.) (Though really it's a joke item, the golem is too weak and random to really do anything helpful.)
