Tips and Misc
- Useful spells: Resist Cold/Electricity/Fire, Restoration.
- Ghost Touch weapons are essential; almost every monster is incorporeal.
- Open Lock or Knock can be very useful here. Every door that leads to an Evil Altar can also be opened in this manner, rather than fight monsters and traps for the keys.
- Many areas have 2 or 3 different adjacent or overlapping traps (each with their own box) - you have been warned.
- Plenty of shrines (4, 1 in each section).
- The path to the south Evil Altar can be opened without 2nd player or a hireling by using a ranged weapon on the lever on the ceiling, located directly above the lever on the floor.
- Note: You must be just within the first set of gates, and it still may take a number of shots to trigger the inner gates down and the outer gates up.
- Beware of the Shadow Rogue; He is an invisible stalker, so you will not see him at all (and you'll probably end up slaying him by accident too.)
