The Harpers have learned that the Netherese have also found several of the Nether Scroll pieces. They want you to take those pieces back by force.

Take the High Road to the Blooded Wood and meet with the Harper agent there. He will give you further instructions.

Known Traps

Trap DCs: Heroic and Epic

Spell Wards:

  • Three around the locked chest in the northeast
  • Line of five across the road to the northwest (can be avoided by going further around to the NW, towards Shadowpaw.)
  • Two more further to the south, across the east fork (can also be avoided by sticking to the south fork)
    • Note that in both these cases, hires will *not* follow you off the cliff and will instead run back around through the traps, unless you leap off and summon them in mid air.

Tips and Misc

  • Simply follow the path around, killing Netherese, until you reach the castle, then enter the outer walls and follow the catwalks until you can get into the inner keep. A couple of rares and pieces of evidence are on the grounds around the castle.
  • Take sonic protection for the archers.
  • There is a Resurrection Shrine (only) just past the northeast corner. No Rest Shrine is paired with that.
    • One normal pair of shrines (Rest/Resurrection) is located at the end of the trail, just south of the entry to the fort. Another Resurrection Shrine (only) is available at the end fight.
  • Optionals:
    • Shadowpaw will appear in the northwest corner.
    • Miremere may appear southeast of the castle, in the pond east of the drawbridge.
    • Greenstalker may appear in the southwest corner of the map
  • The Netherese Evidence are sparkling scrolls:
    • The first piece is due west of the compound where you start, on some crates.
    • The second piece is near a dead body just south of Shadowpaw, in the northwest.
    • The third piece is near another dead body, guarded by some Yuan-Ti, east of the castle
    • The fourth piece is on a stump west of the castle.

To the End Fight

  • Don't leap onto the spikes on the drawbridge, or in the inner keep. They're spiky and can thus cause some distress.
  • With a high enough Jump, it's possible to get back up to the shrine when the boss is dead by get up on the door, or via reverse gravity in the boss fight (done with Feather Falling on and jump 40+).
  • The two wizards in the center talk for a minute or so, giving you time to run around and get the breakables.
  • At the end fight, Razagnol drops some Dretches from the sky, then, later, some Fire Reavers.
  • He likes to cast Firewalls and Anti-Gravity, which may send you flying into the spikes. If you can fight in the cubby by the shrine, it will limit the damage he can cause with that. Unfortunately, this may cause him to start casting Necrotic Rays and Meteor Swarms instead.
