Known Traps

Trap DCs: Heroic and Epic

Spell Wards:

  • Nine single left and right along the path before reaching the locked chest (not on map)
  • 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 North-west, 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.
  • Protect against sonic damage from archers.
  • There is a Resurrection Shrine 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. A second pair is located at the entrance to the inner keep. Another Resurrection Shrine is available after the end fight.
  • Optionals:
    • Shadowpaw will appear in the northwest corner.
    • Greenstalker may appear in the southwest corner of the map
    • Miremere may appear southeast of the castle, in the pond east of the drawbridge.
  • 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 and soft capped Jump skill 40).
  • The two wizards in the center talk for a minute or so, giving you time to run around and destroy 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 cubbyhole 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.

Bonus XP

  • Discreet bonus: 45 or fewer monsters killed +5% Bonus.( ♣171 ♦295 ♥306 ♠317 )
  • Aggression bonus: 33 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣341 ♦590 ♥612 ♠633 )

  • Neutralization bonus: 13 or more traps disarmed +20% Bonus.( ♣682 ♦1,181 ♥1,224 ♠1,267 )
  • Ingenious Debilitation bonus: 16 or more traps disarmed +30% Bonus.( ♣1,024 ♦1,771 ♥1,835 ♠1,900 )
