Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the southeasternmost room with the trident shape on the ceiling, flip the switch at the end, then backtrack. Go back west when you can to discover that Nitrogolems have appeared. Enter the north alcove to find Gauntlets of the Necromancer. (sector 278)
  2. Open the door south of the exit door. There will be two side rooms here. Enter the one on the right and flip the switch in the room. After doing so, the stairs to the south will lower. Take the central steps, then turn west, then north and open the wall here to get a Shadowsphere. This area counts as two secrets. (sector 147)
  3. See Secret #2. (sector 472)
  4. This secret is opposite of the previous ones, so instead of turning west, turn east, then north and open the wall to get the Wings of Wrath. Again, this counts as two secrets. (sector 148)
  5. See Secret #4. (sector 218)
  6. With the Wings of Wrath, go back to the northeasternmost room with the damaging moat and fly over it. You will find a Phoenix Rod, a Mystic Urn, two Quartz Flasks, a Tome of Power, and Flame Orbs. (sector 473)
