Tips and Misc
- Buffs: As before, acid and electricity. Also fire for the end fight.
- The Wood Woads are orange named, but still love to spam Earthquake.
- There are many "root walls" that cannot be broken until all enemies are dispatched - no zerging/sneaking past mobs here.
- Bring an underwater action item if you can, for the mandatory swim west (which starts near the first shrine) and the optional southeast section. It's barely possible for an unskilled swimmer to swim up to pockets of air, but it's far slower to have to use them.
- (Optional) The entire section of the underwater tunnel leading east is optional - 2 chests and the Drow optional (+8% XP).
- You may want to dump heavy armor, a negative swim score probably won't work. You'll have a chance to put it back on when you hit dry land again.
- Most of the pockets of air are marked on your map when you find them (which makes the swim back from the east faster).
- There is a chest lying underwater in the far eastern tunnel - no fighting necessary.
- For the swim west, there is a pocket of air in the southern dead-end passage; you'll probably need it.
- The swim starts just north of the first (southeast) shrine, the second shrine (southwest) is at the end of the swim; yes, it's a long swim.
- From the 2nd shrine, the path leads south. When that path splits, south-west leads to the Bog Hag optional (and her chest that may drop the Ivy Wraps).
- The only breakables are on top of the cliff near the Ranger Kuldail Ukien; go up the stone stairs to the right of the corridor beyond him.
- The last shrine (northwest) is guarded by several earth elementals.
- The final fight is with the Druid Halsaime.
- He is a very powerful druid, and is human in the first part of the fight.
- Like any druid, he can cast healing spells on himself.
- He will rapidly cast spells like Earthquake, Call Lightning, and Firestorm many times in a row in human form.
- At 50% health he transforms into a black wolf form, and at 25% he transforms into a Black Bear. Both times he summons mobs.
- He is quickly regenerating at wild form. To make him human again, kill all spawned mobs. If you run around, sometimes mobs will get stuck behind trees/rocks. Halsaime will NOT take further damage until the mobs are dead!
- The mobs are the same yellow named mobs seen in this chain: Dryads, Druids, Bears, and Wisps.
