  1. When you press the switch in the western part of the lava area, the one with Weredragons (Iron Lich on thou art a smite-meister or higher) in front of it, take the teleporter back to the main area and return to the teleporters. You can now get the Mystic Urn, Tome of Power, and Ring of Invincibility behind the teleporters. (sector 121)
  2. The switch in Secret #3 reveals a small room at the west side of the hallway mentioned below. This room has a switch for a lift leading up. Take it to find Ethereal Arrows and Gauntlets of the Necromancer. (sector 137)
  3. Take the blue teleporter in the main area. When you do, drop down and go west, then south up the steps. Enter the next hall and take a look at the walls to the south. You might spot a passage in one of them. Lower the block barring access to the passage to reach a secret room with Undead warriors and Crystal vials. You need the yellow key to reach them. There will also be a switch here to reveal Secret #2. (sector 229)

  5. Drop down into the slime where the green key is and head north through the vines to reach a Shadowsphere and a teleporter. (sector 276)
  6. Take the green teleporter in the main area. When you do, descend the steps and head west. Next to the green wall, press on the misaligned wall to the right to find a Silver Shield and Ethereal Arrows. (sector 342)
  7. At the lava area, go to the southwesternmost room. Go to the left side of the fireplace and spot a switch here. Flip it, then run to the hallway to the right. A passage down here leads to an Enchanted Shield. (sector 531)
  8. After flipping the switch in the Undead warrior trap room (mentioned in Secret #4), go back to the hub and go east of the building where your starting point was. There will be a new switch here. Flip it to lower a nearby lift leading to a water area with Fire Gargoyles. Head south to find lots of ammo, a Silver Shield, and Crystal vials. (sector 668)
