Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After you get the yellow key, head to the northeast end of the city and find the two yellow doors. Open the north one and go to the middle to find a teleporter. Enter it and grab the Phoenix Rod, which will lower the doors with Flame Orbs on them. To the southeast is a Mystic Urn and to the northwest is a Shadowsphere. (sector 506)
  2. Enter the graveyard where the Hellstaff is and head to the south end. On the backside of one of the tombstones is a switch. Flip this switch and head out of the graveyard to the north. The fortress wall will be lowering, allowing access to an outside area with a number of supplies. (sector 751)
  3. At the northeast end of the city, enter the west door at the south building, then raise a switch to lower a lift. Ride the lift up and go through three more doors to another switch. After using it, take the lift in the hall, then head east two more doors. You will be at the top of the library section. Maneuver your way to the top of the bookshelves, keeping to the top, and you will eventually find a window where you can jump north to the other building. Do so to find Timebombs of the Ancients, Lesser Runes, and a Hellstaff. (sector 1154)
  4. At Secret #2, head north across the first pool until you see a Quartz Flask, then climb the rocks near it so you land in another pool. Head east to find Wand Crystals and a Ring of Invulnerability to the north, and Claw Orbs, a Bag of Holding, and more Wand Crystals to the south. (sector 1576)
