Tips and Misc
- The archer Shar Worshippers use frost bows; 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. They also can cast Death Ward, Mass to give death ward to them and nearly enemies.
- 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.
- Optional: The Hidden Cavern is behind a trapped secret door on the western side of the cavern map, to the west of the intersection south/southeast 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. The lions can be quite challenging for the ill-prepared. You may wish to clear a path to resurrection shrine, which is behind several levered gates, before engaging the beasts.
- Several Shar Worshippers will spawn near the junction leading to the cavern on your way back out from this chest.
- There's a point of no return after the final two Shar Disciples.
