Tips and Misc

  • The river is full of hidden Orc Scouts; between their stealth and the foliage, it can be difficult to find them, even when they start shooting at you. Don't allow the ranging units to lure you into a bigger fight than you want.
  • If you have feather fall you can avoid the fights on the bridge, just jump north once you zone in.
  • If you free Lady Azdel and her guards, Termon and Milni, they will help with the fight. The guards are on the eastern and northwestern sides of the island, whilst Lady Azdel herself is on the southwestern end. They all appear to be Sorcerers or Wizards and will deal decent damage and sometimes cast buffs on your party. While they can't die, they can be knocked down. If they're knocked out, speak to them and tell them to get up and fight. They'll then stumble back to their feet and rejoin the fight at full health. They all have their own spell sets and combat style as detailed on their individual pages. Some example spells they cast include Bear's Endurance, Blur, Haste, Frost Lance, and Fireball.
  • Oozo may appear near the beginning, under the shorter bridge.
  • Captain Guldag may appear on the first island in the river.
  • Captain Griznuk may appear near the first shrine.
  • Guldag and Griznuk will never spawn together. However if Guldag doesn't spawn, Griznuk is guaranteed to spawn and vice versa.
  • Captain Maknul may appear just past the second gate.
  • Captain Parnash may appear a little farther on, where the river turns north.
  • Maknul and Parnash will never spawn together. However if Maknul doesn't spawn, Parnash is guaranteed to spawn and vice versa.

  • Devious bonus: 8 or fewer monsters killed +7% Bonus.( ♣34 ♦61 ♥65 ♠70 )
  • Discreet bonus: 16 or fewer monsters killed +5% Bonus.( ♣24 ♦43 ♥47 ♠50 )

  • Onslaught bonus: 52 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣72 ♦130 ♥140 ♠149 )
  • Conquest bonus: 64 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣121 ♦217 ♥233 ♠249 )
