Tips and Misc
- You only get a reward the first time you finish this quest. Choose carefully, as this is the only time you can get the remaining set item to go with the rewards from Sacrifices.
- This adventure is easier than most of this level.
- Throughout the mission are runes on the floor. You need to kill the zombies (often in the form of frozen statues) around them to lower the shields, and then step on them to activate them.
- Aussircaex is the name of the white dragon being controlled. Drastix Aschtand is the name of the mindflayer controlling the dragon. Neither of them can be attacked or interacted with. (The only exception is in the chamber where Aussircaex sleeps, where you can target and attack her for a while, but she becomes non selectable as soon as she starts chasing the other party.)
- The mission is picked up from Amalgam in Korthos Island, but Rinar d'Thuranni in Korthos Village is where you turn it in for a reward.
- Frostbite will be found in the large spider-filled cavern, in the southern shrine room, opened by the rune in the center of the room.
- You have to have your entire party gather at the end, and they must all be alive. Make sure no one goes afk after they die.

- NPC rewards: These are the reward items for The Salvation of Korthos quest flag. Misery's Peak is a repeatable quest but The Salvation of Korthos cannot be repeated. Thus, you can only get one of the following items from Korthos.
These necklaces can also appear as end rewards in certain later quest chains, however, and there also exists the Gem of Many Facets from The Chronoscope raid, which provides the second half of all of these set bonuses simultaneously.
