Tips and Misc
- Will-o-wisps use electric attacks, mudmen use acid.
- The "Free the Three Lost Spirits" optional, in the large northwest area, requires you to find the 3 spirits (They look like Wraiths except with no HP bars like any good NPC), which is not too hard because it's one flat level and they're sort of obvious. But you need to kill some Mudmen, Vine Horrors and Swamp Will-o'-Wisps to free them. If you listen to the spirits but tell them you won't help (the 'forget it' line on the first two, and the 'you can try it' line on the last one), they will attack you and give the optional to kill them all. This will prevent you from completing the optional to help them and you won't get any chest. Killing at least one of them is useful to get the Swamp Wraith Monster Manual entry.
- You can loot Evrim's treasure, under the waterfall, after you free the three spirits; however, you don't get the optional for it until after you open the chest (changed in U17).
- The "Evil Presence" is a Shadow and a few Umbral creatures, found in the far northern area. None of them are named. To get to them, you'll first need to get the Green Key from the small pool of water to the north *and* to pick/knock a door behind the one the key opens (which is unpickable).
- The quest doesn't end until you open the final chest, giving you a chance to disable the bear traps on the pillars or go back for the optional if you want.
- Update 18 made the chest (and traps) on top of the pillars MUCH easier to get to. If you follow the wall from the medusa's alcove to the west, around the rock protuberance, there's a series of stone ledges you can easily climb and get to the first pillar. After that, it's easy to leap from pillar to pillar without needing Cannith Boots or any other form of propulsion!
- To get to the line of five pillars to the east, you will still need some form of propulsion.
- Aggression bonus: 75 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.
- Onslaught bonus: 97 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.
- Conquest bonus: 120 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.
