Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the west cave, head to the southwest end and lower the wall. This place has a switch and a Dark Servant. (sector 189)
  2. At the south halls, head east from the Ethereal Crossbow up the steps, then head to the wall to the north and use the switch in the corner there. Head west to the lowered platform, lowering the wall where the Quartz Flask is and jumping down. Use the next wall to find an Enchanted Shield. (sector 250)
  3. At the southeast end go north and use the altar to open the wall behind it. Head down the steps and take the teleporter to get a Shadowsphere, a Quiver of Ethereal Arrows, and Crystal Geode. (sector 300)
  4. At the south halls, take the one going northeast from the Ethereal Crossbow. Use the west wall with moss where the small pillars are and drop down to get Crystal Vials and a switch. This raises the lift that lets you get to E2M0. (sector 622)
  5. At the east end of the large cave system, climb up to the southeast and head south, climbing the steps to a Tome of Power. (sector 1376)
  6. You need to find four switches hidden around the hub. One is in the northwest part of the map, another is at Secret #1, and another is on the way to Secret #3. Another is south of the exit from Secret #5. After using all of these switches, you open up a hatch at the northeast end of the map, near a big area. Shoot the switch in that hatch to raise a step to the south. Get on the step and go around to the inner side, opening the door and using the switch there to reveal a Phoenix Rod. (sector 2733)
