============
[1.1] Review
============

Dungeon Siege II, like its predecessor, is a basic dungeon crawl--or "action 
RPG" in modern parlance. The game's focus is destroying hordes of enemies 
while completing a variety of quests (tasks) that are given you. As you lay 
waste the quivering mass of foes that press upon you, your character gains 
experience, which you can translate into extra power in the form of higher 
ability scores, new weapons and spells and additional skills.

As in the original, DS2 is a point-and-click game and you can pretty much run 
the whole show with just your mouse. Combat is real-time, but you just choose 
your attack (melee, ranged or spell) and right-click an enemy. AI-controlled 
characters will attack an enemy until it is dead. To make the player-
controlled character attack an enemy until it is dead, hold down the right 
mouse button.

DS2 has a richer, more varied story than DS1, which makes it easier to 
motivate oneself to venture forth into the slaughtering fields. There are 
more conversations to be had in towns, and many more optional secondary 
quests. Also, DS2, while still quite linear, feels less confined as you can 
(and will) jump back and forth between areas to complete quests. All this 
makes DS2 a much better game than DS1 and will make it more accessible to 
some of the hardcore RPG players that normally eschew dungeon crawls.


=========
[1.2] FAQ
=========

Q. How do I unlock the higher difficulty levels?

A. Complete the game at the lower difficulty levels. You must finish the
   game at Mercenary level to play at Veteran level. You must finish the
   game at Veteran level to play at Elite level.


Q. How do I add more than four characters to my party?

A. Four characters is the limit for Merc difficulty. At Veteran difficulty
   you can add a fifth party member. At Elite difficulty, you can add a sixth
   party member.


Q. I'm at the Elven Shrine (Act I, Chapter 4) and I can't get through the
   door because I need a level 6 ranger!

A. That's just a sanctuary door. (See Handbook Lesson #37) There's a bit of
   treasure behind that door, nothing more. The door to take deeper into the
   Elven Shrine is to the right of that door.


Q. Where are the set items?

A. Set items are random drops based on your character level. While certain
   treasure chests and foes have a higher probability of dropping a set item,
   no two people will find the same item in the same place. You can even find
   multiples of set items (and other unique items). The items drop according
   to your character level, so if you get past the intended level without
   completing a set, you'll probably never complete it.

   The exception are the set items that are part of a specific quest. These
   include the Secrets of the Forgotten (Lost Jewels of Soranith quest), the
   Ghostly Visions (Spirits of Aranna quest) and Luun's Deathblades (Mark of
   the Assassin quest). Also, the Nature's Vigilance set items are placed in
   specific treasure chests in Act I. These are mentioned in the Chapter
   Walkthrough and under the Nature's Vigilance set description.


Q. Where's the best place to XP/item farm?

A. There's no really good place to farm for XP as power leveling is kind of a
   useless activity. The best place to item farm is anywhere in a town or
   near a teleporter so you can reload and quickly return to try again.
   Probably the best place to item farm is the Aman'lu Arena. Don't open the
   treasure rooms until after you've completed all ten matches. Then save
   your game before examining your filthy lucre. If you don't like what
   you're given, reload and go open the treasure rooms again. You can often
   get a lot of set items this way.

   Of course, if you are really into item farming, you might as well just use
   an item-drop mod. There are several at this Web site:

   http://www.siege-mods.com/Downloads/c=11.html 

   I used a couple of these mods in writing this Guide.

Q. Can I earn any bonus skill points?

A. Yes. The following quests earn one (1) bonus skill point:
   * Act I, Chapter 5: The Dryad Exile Colony
   * Act I, Chapter 8: The Lost Azunite Artifact
   * Act III, Chapter 6: The Agallan Trial
   * Act I, Secondary Quest #7: The Hak'u, Part II
   * Act II, Secondary Quest #13: A Servant's Haunt

   You receive two (2) bonus skill points for completing these quests:
   * Act II, Secondary Quest #6: Arinth the Mad
   * Act II, Secondary Quest #12: The Aman'lu Arena

Q. Who is ??? What is with this Mysterious Bucket/Token/Stone/Book?

A. See The Mysterious Mystery Quest (section 4.7)

of your Journal. If you want to know all the ins-and-outs of playing DS2, 
refer to those resources. This section is intended as a quick-start guide for 
players who don't like lots of reading before playing.

================================
[2.2] 10 Tips to Get You Started
================================

#1 Pause the game. Frequently.
------------------------------
Don't try to play this as an action/combat game, relying on the twitchiness 
of your trigger finger to win the day. The combat in DS2 is very tactical, 
and pausing regularly during combat will help you assess your characters' 
positions, their health and mana status and the best available targets.

You should also pause every time you stop to manage inventory or add skill 
points--especially if you are in hostile territory where a monster could 
wander up and start beating on you while you're absorbed in whether or not 
you should equip the Sword of Uberness or the Axe of Leetness.


#2 Don't be afraid to use potions. And carry plenty around with you.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Whether you choose to invest in Natural Bond and Survival so you can harvest 
potions, or you just buy some from the friendly neighborhood potion pusher 
whenever you're in town; always keep plenty of health and mana potions in 
your Inventory.


#3 Versatility is a good thing.
-------------------------------
Monsters are resistant--or flat out invulnerable--to different types of 
damage, especially as you get deeper into the game. You must have a variety 
of damage types available to you. If you've got a party of two fighters and a 
ranger and you run into a mob that's resistant to melee and ranged damage, 
you're in trouble.

The best way to handle versatility is to have one of each class in your party: 
fighter, ranger, combat mage and nature mage. Of the four, the combat mage is 
inherently the most versatile as she can fling death, fire or lightning 
damage as needed; and, she can curse enemies to make them weak to her favored 
attacks.

Righteous!

Add a shield tank or mythrilhorn pet to Provoke mobs away from the caster and 
you've got all you really need. You can then add in ranged or 
healing/buffing/summoning support as suits your playing style.


#4 Don't forget the Summon Teleporter spell.
--------------------------------------------
Summon Teleporter is a level-0 nature magic spell. Level 0 means any 
character can cast it to open a town portal for a quick rest and refit. The 
standard teleporters are rather thick throughout Aranna, but it never hurts 
to have a quick escape method at hand. Make sure every one of your characters 
has a spell book with Summon Teleporter in it, even if they never cast any 
other spell throughout the entire game.

Just remember that town portals do not last through a save/reload and are 
single-use only.


#5 You've got to know when to walk away, know when to run.
----------------------------------------------------------
Sometimes, when you're being overwhelmed, a "tactical retreat" is in order. 
In other words: run away, run away! This is especially important if you have 
casters. If they get surrounded by brutish thugs, they'll end up unconscious 
pretty quickly. Since your mages are generally your highest-damage dealers, 
any time mobs gang up on them, running to a clear area and regrouping your 
party is a good idea.


#6 Backup your saves.
---------------------
By default, your save games are stored in

My Documents\My Games\Dungeon Siege 2\Save\SinglePlayer

The game keeps your most recent save and the one save right before that. This 
doesn't allow a lot of leeway if you get stuck, hit a glitch, etc. Every time 
you start a new chapter, ALT-TAB out of the game, ZIP up your character's 
save game folder and archive it somewhere. If you hit a showstopper bug, 
replace your current save folder with the most recent archived save folder.


#7 Assign hotkeys to Defend and Wait.
-------------------------------------
The game basically assumes the Rampage and Mirror party orders are good 
enough. However, you may also want to use Defend and Wait. Defend causes all 
non-active characters to attack whatever is attacking the active character. 
Wait essentially puts the active character into solo mode--the non-active 
characters will hold their ground while the active character explores.

There are some specific situations where these party orders come in handy, 
but, by default, there is no way to issue the commands. You'll have to go in 
and assign hotkeys to these two party orders yourself.


#8 The toughest enemy isn't always the biggest enemy.
-----------------------------------------------------
When in combat, try to identify the mobs that are hurting you the most. It 
might be the boss, or it might be the boss' minions. You can even get 
seriously injured by green-level mobs if you are especially vulnerable to 
their attack.

In boss fights, it is generally advisable to draw minions away from the boss 
and destroy them piecemeal before confronting the boss party-a-mano. You also 
need to be aware of any mobs that are hanging back casting nasty spells or 
summoning critters. Destroying a summoner also rids you of their summons, 
which is a good thing.

Again, use the PAUSE key a lot to keep an eye on the ebb and flow of battle. 
Figure out which mobs pose the gravest danger to your health and focus your 
attacks on them.


#9 Use the map.
---------------
If, for some strange reason, this guide alone isn't helping you find your way, 
keep an eye on your map. It is full of helpful icons:

* Green dots point out friendly NPCs
* Blue dots point out interactive items (buttons, levers, doors, etc.)
* Gold stars mark primary quest objectives
* White stars mark secondary quest objectives
* The compass map always shows a gold arrow pointing you in the direction you
  need to go to complete your current primary quest task

You can zoom the maps (both small and large) using the slider under the 
compass map. Use it to search for secret switches and get your bearings.


#10 Use your powers, Luke!
--------------------------
Don't try hording your powers for boss fights. Use them for fighting off 
standard mobs as well. They recharge pretty quickly, and the larger boss 
fights always have plenty of war pedestals scattered around for instant 
recharging. Area-of-effect powers are especially useful when you're 
surrounded, so use 'em up.

==========================================

Calculating Damage Per Second
-----------------------------
In order to truly understand how much damage you are doing, you must learn to 
calculate DPS (damage per second). Since weapon damage is dependant on your 
ability stats and class levels, it will vary from person to person. However, 
you can compare two different weapons for your character by equipping each 
and calculating DPS for each.

DPS can be calculated with this formula:

(MAX DMG + MIN DMG) / (2 * SPEED)

Where

MAX DMG = Maximum damage of the weapon
MIN DMG = Minimum damage of the weapon
SPEED   = Speed factor of the weapon according to the following table*:

Speed        Factor
------       ------
Slow          0.9
Normal        0.73
Fast          0.67
Faster        0.625

* These factors are the attack duration times of the weapons taken from the 
wpn_bases.gas game data file. It is the time, in seconds, it takes to 
"reload" the weapon and attack again.

For example, you want to calculate DPS between a bow and crossbow. Bows are 
Faster weapons while crossbows are Slow; but crossbows do more damage. Your 
34th level ranger has a crossbow with a damage range of 97 to 165 and a bow 
with a damage range of 78 - 134 (damage ranges are from equipped weapons). 
The speed factor of the bow is 0.625 and the crossbow is 0.9. The DPS of each 
weapon is:

Crossbow: (165 + 97) / (2 * 0.9)   = 145.5
Bow:      (134 + 78) / (2 * 0.625) = 169.6

As you can see, the bow in this case is clearly superior under normal 
circumstances. 

Now let's consider a 34th level fighter choosing between a one-handed and 
two-handed weapon. The 2h weapon has a damage range of 90 to 143, the 1h is 
67 to 105. Two-handed weapons have a speed factor of 0.9 and 1h is 0.67:

2h: (143 + 90) / (2 * 0.9)  = 129.4
1h: (105 + 67) / (2 * 0.67) = 128.6

The DPS of the weapons are almost identical. However, the 1h weapon allows 
the fighter to use a shield, thus drastically increasing armor ratings. On 
the other hand, the 2h weapon can stun enemies and would be greatly superior 
used with Brutal Strike.

The upshot of all this: when choosing among several weapons, equip each one 
and run the formula. Take the one with the higher DPS or one with only 
slightly less DPS but more bonus enhancements. In the long run, the faster 
your enemies die, the better off you'll be.


It's all about the armor, baby!
-------------------------------
No matter how much DPS you're dishing out, some enemies still take a long 
time to die because they have thousands of health points to your measly 
hundreds. So, while you're beating them to pulp, you don't want them 
returning the favor. There are three ways to keep your blood where it belongs 
(inside your veins):

1. Armor
2. Dodging
3. Resistances/Reflections

Now, why are they in that order?

Simple: Armor is king.

Yes, a chance to dodge melee/ranged attacks is nice. And all the various 
resistances are nice (especially physical damage resistance). But, when push 
comes to shove, you just don't want to get hit in the first place. Resisting 
20% of an attack that does 500 damage still leaves you 400 health points 
poorer. Dodging 25% of four attacks launched against you still leaves you to 
grin-and-bear three attacks.

A well-armored tank can stand in the middle of a mob and lay about with his 
weapon and take almost no damage. The vast majority of enemies you face in 
DS2 are melee or ranged attackers. There really aren't that many spellcasters 
outside of the bosses. And they usually have such crappy armor and health 
(like your own mages) that they go down pretty quickly.

It's all the mutant dogs and kangaroos and sword fighters and archers that 
come at you in droves that can really make your life miserable. That's why 
you need armor, and lots of it. When picking out equipment, favor the stuff 
that increases your armor rating over anything else.


Protect your combat mage
------------------------
What do you do when you're in the middle of a mob and you notice some freak 
is drawing the blood right out of your veins? You identify the little git and 
give him what for! Well, your enemies do the same to you. Combat mages draw 
aggro like flowers draw bees. Even the stupid dogs will run right past your 
dual-flashy-pointy-thing-wielding monster of a tank and take nips at the 
heals of your CM.

Since your CM, like any other mage, is a 90-pound weakling, he or she winds 
up unconscious and you are deprived of the hundreds of points of damage he or 
she can dish out every cast. What do you do?

First, consider not putting curses in the autocast slot. Yes, curses are 
incredibly useful, but monsters don't like being cursed any more than you, so 
they go for the curser. Let your fighter(s) get the mobs attention--then 
curse them. They might still turn away from the fighter, but they'll likely 
not survive to run to the CM.

Second, use Drown or Infect as both do a certain amount of DPS. Yes, your CM 
will draw aggro from using them, but low-level monsters will be dead before 
reaching the mage and blue and yellow mobs won't last much longer.

Third, use a weapon + shield fighter and the Provoke power--or, better, a 
mythrilhorn pet--to keep enemies focus away from your mage.

Fourth, have a nature mage with a good insta-heal spell in the autocast slot 
and plenty of mana potions to keep casting the spell. Your CM may still fall 
unconscious once in a while, but your NM will get him or her back up in no 
time.


Party-a-go-go
-------------
DS2 gives you a max of four party members in Merc difficulty, five in Vet and 
six in Elite. With eight henchmen--each with his or her own quest--and ten 
different pets, choosing your companions and rotating them in and out can get 
quite confusing.

You begin the game with just two party slots. To purchase additional slots, 
you must talk to an Innkeeper. The first Innkeeper available is in Eirulan, 
and she will sell you additional party slots immediately. Thus you could, if 
you had enough money, buy your third and fourth party slots as soon as you 
get out of prison in Merc. But, well, you won't have enough money, so that's 
academic.

A third party slot costs 500 gold. The fourth costs 1,500. Under reasonable 
circumstances, you should be able to cough up the 500 gold during Act I, 
Chapter 3 and 1,500 by the time you reach Chapter 4. So you should be able to 
add Deru, Taar and Lothar to your party (or a pet or two) by the time you 
enter the Southern Greilyn Jungle.

The fifth slot costs 10,000, which is peanuts by the time you reach Vet 
difficulty. The sixth slot costs 65,000--again, this is chump change even by 
Vet difficulty, much more Elite.

To take someone out of your party open that person/pet's Character Window and 
click the Disband button at the top left of the CW. If you are disbanding a 
henchman, it asks if you're sure and then sends the henchman to the "party 
inventory" at the Inn (more about that in a moment). If you disband a pet, it 
asks if you want to send the pet to the Inn or release it to the wild. If you 
release the pet to the wild it drops everything in its Inventory and 
disappears--for good. You can't ever get that pet back again.

Henchmen and pets disbanded to the Inn are stored in a party inventory. You 
can view this inventory by talking to the Innkeeper and asking about old 
companions (conversation option #1). You get a screen that looks a little 
like a shopping screen, with your Character Window on the left and a listing 
of disbanded party members on the right. Underneath the Innkeeper's name are 
the buttons:

* View: shows you a screen with the chosen companion's stats.

* Release: permanently removes the selected companion from the game.

* Add: adds the companion to your party (if you have an open slot).

Below the buttons are your companions, up to 20 can be stored at the Inn, 
they are shown seven-to-a-page. Adding a companion from the party inventory 
to your active party is pretty straightforward. Releasing a companion is not.

When you release a companion--whether pet or henchman--that character is gone, 
never to return during the current game. (If you remove a henchman, you can 
still encounter and hire the "new" version of that henchman when playing 
again at a higher difficulty.) By default, only pets can be released. A 
released companion drops all its inventory before disappearing.

Of course, not being able to release henchman can lead to problems when 
playing through at higher difficulties. Typically, if you are a complete-nic, 
you will have hired all eight henchman to do their quests, so all of them are 
hanging around either in your active party or party inventory. This is fine, 
if you like them as is. But what if you want the new, improved version of the 
henchman?

For example, what if you have Lothar leveled as a fighter and you want to use 
the Combat Mage Lothar in Vet? Or you leveled Vix as a thrower, and now you 
want to use him as a bowman? In order to hire the new versions of henchmen, 
you have to first release the old henchmen, and the game doesn't want you to 
do that--the Release button is grayed out when a henchman is selected.

There is a workaround and it involves filling the first page of your party 
inventory with pets. Just buy enough pets (at least seven) to fill the first 
page of your party inventory and disband them to the Inn. Then go to the Inn 
and Add henchmen and disband them until they are all on pages 2 or 3 of the 
party inventory. Now, when selected, the Release button should be available 
for the henchman.

Remember! Don't release a henchman until you are finished with the game (or 
have just started a new game at higher difficulty). Once released, they are 
gone forever in the current game.

Henchmen do not level up when stored at the Inn. When you add a henchman to 
your party (either for the first time or re-adding via the Inn), he/she will 
only level up if more than 20 levels less than your PC. If more than 20 
levels less than your PC, the henchman will level up to 2 levels below your 
PC. Pets are always the same level as your PC.

SUMMONS
Summoned monsters don't count against your party limit. You could, 
technically, have every character summon a monster and have up to 12 
"members" (6 party members in Elite + 6 summons). Practically, this isn't a 
good idea as any character other than a full mage is going to have an 
incredibly weak summons. To get rid of a summons before its time expires, 
open the summoner's Character Window and click the View button over the paper 
doll so you see the character's portrait. Right-click the summons icon to 
remove it and dismiss your summons.


More Math (for the Geeks)
-------------------------
Some formulas for the more obsessive-minded among the faithful...

TALKIN' BOUT REGENERATION!
Health and mana regenerate at a relative rate roughly equal to Max (Health or 
Mana) / 100 per second. I.e., base regeneration is scaled so the character 
can fully recover health or mana in 100 seconds. Thus, the actual amount of 
health or mana makes no difference. A fighter with 1,000 health who has 
suffered 50% damage (500 points) and a mage with 500 health who has suffered 
50% damage (250 points) will recover full health in the same amount of time 
(assuming their regeneration bonuses are the same).

All potions restore health and mana at a rate that would restore the max 
health/mana of the potion in 12 seconds. So a small health potion (125 max 
health restored) restores at a rate of about 10.4 points per second (125 / 12) 
while a colossal health potion (1,100 max health restored) restores at a rate 
of about 91.6 points per second. The practical effect is the larger potions 
seem to take as much time as the smaller potions since, by the time you get 
the larger potions, your characters have much more health. For example:

5th level character with 100 health drinks small potion and regenerates 10% 
health per second (10.4 of 100)

40th level character with 900 health drinks colossal potion and regenerates 
10% health per second (91.6 of 900).

And, for the truly obsessed:

Max health is ((str * 0.6) + (dex * 0.25) + (int * 0.15)) * 5.0
Max mana is  ((str * 0.02) + (dex * 0.08) + (int * 0.53)) * 5.0

XP (NOT THE WINDOWS KIND)
For mobs that are more than four (4) levels above or below a character, 
earned experience is reduced by 20% per level to a minimum of 5% XP. For 
example, if a character is level 15 fighting a level 10 or level 20 mob, the 
character will receive only 80% XP; 60% XP for a level 9 or level 21 mob; 40% 
XP for a level 8 or level 22 mob; 20% XP for a level 7 or level 23 mob and 5% 
XP for mobs level 6 and under or level 24 and over.

This means two things:

1) XP farming has a rapidly diminishing rate of return. Once you get 9 or 
more levels over the mobs you face, you earn virtually no experience.

2) To level up a low-level party member, you need to fight mobs near the same 
level as the character. Taking a 20th level companion into a 30ish level mob 
area will hardly level the 20th level companion at all. Take that companion 
to an area with level 18 to 22 mobs and level him or her up a bit. Then go to 
level 24 mobs, etc. until the companion catches up.

Experience is divided amongst non-pet party members. However, mobs scale 
based on party size, so you end up coming out about even. If you want to 
level up faster, take just your PC and a party full of pets. You'll face 
stronger mobs and get all the XP yourself. Of course, it won't take long for 
the law of diminishing returns to slow your level advancement to a crawl.

Conclusion: in DS2, there's no way to power level short of using a trainer.

For example, a level 1 dagger and a level 1 club would both have a base 
damage range of 3 to 5. A level 30 bow would have a base damage range of 17 
to 28 while a 30th level crossbow would be 31 to 52. Higher level items will 
tend to have magic enhancements to damage. Plus, the actual damage range of 
the weapon when equipped will be modified by Strength or Dexterity as well as 
skills, other equipment, etc.


============================================
[2.4] Known Bugs (as of release version 2.0)
============================================

This game does have some showstopper bugs in it, but they don't hit everybody. 
See hint #6 Backup your saves. Keep regular backups. If you hit a showstopper 
bug, you can restore a previous save and try again.

Gas Powered Games is working on fixing the following bugs:

ACT I

Ch4: Upon retrieving the cure for Taar, Taar asks to join you. If you accept, 
the cure quest is not updated in the journal.

Ch5 Dryad Exile Camp: After battle is won, the Azunite Scholar won't stop 
asking for help.

Ch6: Upon meeting Vix in Eastern Greilyn Jungle, he asks to join you. If you 
accept, the cabin door does not open.

After Ch1: Found/rescued NPCs (but not hired) are not at the local Inn when 
you return there.

ACT II

Ch3: You run out of crystals before lighting all four lights, even though you 
found all four crystals.

Ch3: After finishing Elen'lu island quest, Finala asks to join you. If you 
accept, the Isles quest isn't updated in journal.

after Ch3: Finala fixes an elevator in Upper Greilyn Jungle cave, but it 
stops working (or never works) although lever moves.

Ch5: Skipping a cutscene of Vai'kesh prophet running away, the prophet does 
not escape nor to it's followers get aggressive.

Ch7: In Snowbrook Castle, can't find the Commander at the North Gate after 
fulfilling her request to destroy the rock-throwers.

Ch8: If leave the fight (save/die) with Talon the Dragon at the top of 
Snowbrook Castle, can't continue the fight.

ACT III

Ch6: Although water flows in all 4 waterways, all four parts of bridge in 
Agallan trials haven't been raised.

Ch9: After saving where Valdis is, and reloading, there's no cutscene or 
Valdis.


Gas Powered Games is also adding four additional savegame backups (five total) 
and changing the extension, so they don't get deleted by third-party cleanup 
utilities. GPG is not saying exactly when the patch (v2.2) is coming that 
will fix these bugs or even if all will be fixed. If you've been stopped by 
one of these bugs, there are ***UNOFFICIAL*** fixes for a couple of them here:

http://www.siege-mods.com/Downloads/c=50.html

Use at your own risk.

You can also do certain things to avoid some of these bugs:

Never skip cutscenes or ESC out of dialog. Doing so may cause certain
  scripts to not run.

* When encountering the old man at the end of I.5, let the Dryads beat on him
  for a little bit before running in to help.

* When placing crystals on refractors in the Elen'lu Isles, be very careful
  to click the refractor only once and wait a moment before clicking it again
  to turn it.


The following bugs don't appear to be on GPG's radar at the moment:

* When you add a party member at the Inn, instead of the party member you
  selected, you get a duplicate of another party member. The first party
  member is gone and you've now got two of another companion in your "party
  inventory". There's no known workaround for this glitch except to reload
  and try again.

* When you finish a difficulty level, you cannot get rid of previously hired
  companions. Since you can't get rid of the "old" henchmen, the "new"
  henchmen from the current difficulty level won't join your party. This is
  not actually a bug, as you are not intended to release henchmen permanently.
  See Party-a-go-go for full details on hiring/disbanding/releasing henchmen.

* Some doors, when opened, reveal nothing but black space and you cannot pass
  through them. This is prevalent in Finala's Contempt. There is, at this
  time, no known workaround except trying to reload a previous save.

* Characters can get stuck in the oddest places; even out in the middle of
  empty space. If a character gets stuck and can't move, your only option is
  to summon a teleporter and jump back to town and then return. If you're in
  town when this happens, you have to quit the game and restart.

* The conversation triggers don't recognize any monsters nearby. Almost every
  party conversation, and more than a few quest conversations, get
  interrupted by attacks. This is nothing more than poor design; hopefully it
  will be fixed in some way.

* The Take Aim power for Rangers uses Melee level for calculating bonus
  damage for the first two levels of the power (Take Aim level 3 correctly
  uses Ranged level for calculating damage).

****************************************************************************
                ACT I: GREILYN ISLE AND THE AZUNITE DESERT
****************************************************************************

===========================================
[3.1] Chapter 1: The Siege of Greilyn Beach
===========================================

"Having left your hometown to find fortune and glory and to see the world, 
you and your best friend Drevin have been fighting as mercenaries in Valdis' 
army for the last few years.

"You have been transported to Greilyn beach via Dragon flight, and ordered to 
travel through the trenches the landing force has prepared to help Valdis 
secure a powerful artifact. Not much is known about the artifact other than 
that it lies within a temple nearby called the Temple of the Coast and that 
the island's Dryad inhabitants currently protect it."

Primary Tasks:
* Get your orders from Morden Lieutenant Jerind
* Destroy the training dummy using a melee weapon
* Destroy the training dummy using a ranged weapon
* Destroy the training dummy using a Nature Magic or a Combat Magic spell
* Get your orders from Morden Lieutenant Kargack
* Destroy the bracken shell
* Make your way to the front lines
* Reinforce the troops on the other side of the tunnel

Secondary Quests:
* None

Not much to talk about here. This is the main tutorial stage and the primary 
purpose is to get you used to the game interface and controls. Most of the 
creatures you will encounter during this chapter are weak to fire, so you 
should either use a fire spell yourself or have Drevin use it. Follow the 
trenches and the instructions given by the game.

Make sure you keep an eye out for barrels that can be opened. And, when you 
reach a makeshift hospital, there's a bookcase that holds items.

Once you start encountering ketril, you can switch away from the fire spell 
and concentrate on whatever class you want to be. When you finally reach the 
tunnel entrance, you'll want to have a hero power or two available to use on 
the Infused Ketril that's right inside. He's pretty tough. When you reach the 
end of the tunnel, there will be an extended cutscene and Chapter 2 will 
begin.
 

================================
[3.2] Chapter 2: Prisoner of War
================================

"After securing the Temple of the Coast at Greilyn beach, Valdis, rather than 
giving a reward for his success, savagely attacked all of the mercenaries.

"You were knocked unconscious and, had it not been for your best friend 
Drevin stepping in front of you at the last moment, you probably wouldn't 
even be alive.

"You were discovered by the Dryads who took you back to the treetop village 
of Eirulan as a prisoner where you overheard an Elf known as Amren asking 
your warden to treat you kindly, but you do not know why."

Primary Tasks:
* Go to the merchant shops and ask for the basket of sharpening stones
* Bring the sharpening stones to the Dryad outpost

Secondary Quests:
* Armorer's Apprentice
* Lumilla's Salve

Once you are free, take the lift across to the merchant platform. If you want 
to take a little break, you can wander around and talk to everyone. The main 
person you need to see is Telinu, the armorer's apprentice. She has the 
sharpening stones, and a secondary quest for you. Choose the #1 conversation 
options to get her quest, which is to find the recipe for Dryad armor in a 
book that is in the great hall.

You can also get a quest from Lumilla, the enchantress. She wants four nettle 
clusters to make some of her famous salve. You can't do anything about either 
of these quests now, so note them and continue on your way. You can't go 
anywhere in town except the Inn, but there's really nothing you can do there 
yet (unless you have somehow made 500 gold, in which case you could add a 
third party member slot).

You can have one companion with you, and there are two hanging around just 
inside the North Gate: Lothar, a half-giant fighter; and, Deru, a Dryad 
ranger. If you take one at this early stage of the game, you can switch their 
class focus; and, in fact, Lothar already has one level of combat mage and 
Deru one of nature mage. Pick one up depending on your needs. Talk to the 
Dryad guard to open the gate and take the lift to the Northern Greilyn Jungle.

Once down on the ground you'll find out about health and mana bushes. If your 
character is a Dryad, or you brought Deru with you, you'll get some mana 
potions from the mana bush. You won't be able to harvest health potions until 
someone in your party reaches level 5 ranged and takes the Survival skill.

You'll also learn about incantation shrines because there's one right here. 
The Dryad who teaches you about shrines will also teach you a chant, the 
Lesser Chant of Fortification.

Due north of the shrine is a tower. Enter it and throw the lever to ride a 
lift down to the basement where you will learn all about sanctuary doors and 
find four sanctuary doors (one for each class). You'll need a character with 
at least level 3 in a class to open these doors. There's also a lectern with 
another chant on it (Lesser Chant of Dexterity).

Take what you can and ride the lift back up and head west for a little 
looting side trip through some Hak'u caves. Once you've cleaned them out, 
follow the Dryad guard a short distance east of the shrine to the Dryad 
outpost. Dispose of the Morden, free the Dryads and start the next chapter.
 

==================================
[3.3] Chapter 3: The Morden Towers
==================================

"Freeing the captured Dryads has gained you more respect than is usually 
given to a prisoner, but to earn full trust and freedom you must burn down 
the four known Morden watchtowers in the jungles surrounding Eirulan."

Primary Tasks:
* Find the first Morden tower.
* Burn down the first Morden tower.
* Find and burn down the second Morden tower.
* Find and burn down the third Morden tower.
* Find and burn down the fourth Morden tower.
* Return to Warden Celia in the Eirulan prisoner's terrace.
* Speak with Taar in the Eirulan great hall.

Secondary Quests:
* Lumilla's Salve
* The Hak'u

Now would be a good time to head back to Eirulan and sell some of your excess 
loot. Check the reagent merchant near the North Gate (he has an emerald 
floating over his head) to see if he has any nettle clusters you can buy and 
buy whatever you can afford. Head back to the Dryad outpost and continue 
through the gate to the north.

After you cross the bridge, you'll see some Hak'u fighting a boarbeast. 
Interrupt their hunt and dispose of the Hak'u, then follow the boarbeast west. 
After everything's dead, LEFT-CLICK the statue to reveal a hidden treasure 
chest. You should receive the Vigilant Gloves, part of the Nature's Vigilance 
set.

Continue north. When you reach the stairs, head west to find another statue 
and another hidden chest, though with less treasure. Then go up the stairs to 
a gate guarded by some Morden. You can choose to lie about rejoining the army, 
which will get you a pass through this gate, or you can be belligerent and 
kill all the Morden and still get through the gate.

Before passing through the gate, go east and up to a series of plateaus where 
you can find some more Hak'u and loot. Continue through the gate, then head 
west to another plateau and a Hak'u encampment with some nice loot. Then back 
to the main path and north a little more to the first Morden tower. 
Regardless of which conversation path you followed before, this time you end 
up in a fight.

Once the Morden are dead, break the cage and talk to the Dryad. Then LEFT-
CLICK the wreckage of the cage, which should produce a cage fragment. Pick it 
up (pressing 'Z' is the easiest way), equip it and LEFT-CLICK the campfire 
and then LEFT-CLICK the tower. You get a satisfying explosion and you now 
know how to take out the other three Morden towers.

Continue northward, through the wreckage of the tower, and you'll soon come 
to a teleporter. Across the path from the teleporter is a platform with two 
books that will teach you the Lesser Chant of Strength and Lesser Chant of 
Intelligence.

Just north of the teleporter the path branches west and east. You can't go 
east now because the way is blocked by a wall you cannot pass, so follow the 
path west. At the top of the first ridge, enter the tower and find the 
interactive brick on the east wall. Left-click it to raise the treasure chest.

Continue following the path west and up until you see a cutscene of a Dryad 
fighting a Hak'u. Afterwards, make sure the area is clear of hostiles and 
then talk to the Dryad, Morain, to get the first Hak'u quest: you must rescue 
Morain's niece, Tanzi. After talking to Morain, head back the way you came 
and go north, past the health shrine and over a bridge. You'll find a Hak'u 
ritual camp. Try to take out the shamans first, to keep them from summoning 
lots of other beasties.

Now would probably be a good time to use the Summon Teleporter spell (or walk 
back to the teleporter you recently passed) and head back to Eirulan to sell 
off some loot. You should have enough gold to buy as many nettle clusters as 
you need from the reagent merchant.

Take four nettle clusters to Lumilla and she'll give you a jar of Lumilla's 
Salve, which is a pretty good reagent. Hang on to it until you get an 
enchantable item. (You might want to stick it in the storage vault, for 
safekeeping.)

Return to the main path and continue west. Soon the path will turn south and 
you will find the second Morden tower. Burn it down as you did the first and 
continue south.

Look for a small Hak'u camp to your left (east) just past the tower. After 
clearing it, go the opposite direction (west) to a waterfall and walk through 
the falls into a small cave. There's nothing to fight in here, and you can't 
talk to the ghost (yet); but you can pick up a Mysterious Chant from the 
lectern and some high-quality swag from the treasure chest--including the 
Vigilant Hauberk, armor from the Nature's Vigilance set.

Head back to the main path and continue south. The path will turn east and 
you will soon come to the third Morden tower. This one is guarded by a 
Morden-Viir Grunt Captain, who is pretty tough, but weak to ranged attacks. 
Take him out first before dealing with the peons. Then burn down the tower.

If you go north from the tower, you'll complete the circuit, arriving back at 
the broken bridge where you met Morain. There's some looting opportunities 
around the bridge, then continue through the ruined tower.

The path turns south. Just past the tower is a path leading east that takes 
you to a small plateau with a little loot. Continue on the main path until it 
heads up and you enter the Western Greilyn Jungle. Soon after you reach the 
top of the ramp, there will be a place to turn west and venture into the 
jungle.

Here you will find the back entrance to the Hak'u caves and Tanzi held 
prisoner. Clear the Hak'u from the cave and watch as Tanzi sort of frees 
herself and runs back to Eirulan. If you explore the cave, you'll find a 
partial bridge you may have noticed earlier when you were in the Hak'u caves 
near the North Gate. Pull the lever to open a shortcut between the Western 
Greilyn Jungle and Eirulan's North Gate.

You can't complete the Hak'u quest until you've finished with the Morden 
towers, of which you have one more to burn. Leave the cave and continue south 
along the main path.

There's nothing particularly exciting until you reach the fourth Morden tower, 
which is guarded by a Morden-Viir Recruit Captain, who is a very tough ranger, 
but weak to melee. After the fourth tower is burned, continue west until you 
reach the teleporter.

Teleport back to Eirulan and take the lift over to the prison. Speak to 
Warden Celia and she will tell you to go to the great hall and Taar will 
remove your Ring of Submission. Do so. When you talk to Taar, your Chapter 3 
quests will end and Chapter 4 begins.


===========================
[3.4] Chapter 4: The Plague
===========================

"Burning down the Morden watchtowers has gained you the respect of the Dryads.

"Taar removed the prisoner's Ring of Submission from your neck, but the 
Dryads believe that you were infected with a deadly plague. From what you've 
been told, your only hope for a cure is to reach the Elven Shrine at the top 
of the ridge in the western Greilyn jungle and drink from the fountain 
there."

Primary Tasks:
* Find the ancient Elven shrine.
* Locate the Elven fountain.
* Fill the empty vial with water from the Elven fountain.
* Report back to Taar in the Eirulan great hall.

Secondary Quests:
* The Hak'u
* The Hak'u Part II
* The Armorer's Apprentice
* Lelani's Sorrow
* Secrets of the Elven Shrine
* Kithraya Hive
* Secrets of Xeria's Temple

Across the room from Taar is the elf, Tellendril. He can tell you all about 
war pedestals (and the entry will be added to your Handbook). Nearby, on a 
shelf, is the Tome of Smithing that will tell you how to make Dryad armor. 
Near the ramp to the lower level is Anerith, an elf who will instruct you in 
how to obtain quests.

In the lower level you can pick up a book called "The Mothers of Eirulan". 
Historian Arisu can tell you many tales of the history of Greilyn Island and 
Aranna. Leave the hall and go to the infirmary next door. Speak to Hesla, 
Morain and Tanzi to end the Hak'u quest and begin the Hak'u Part II quest.

Take the lift back to the merchant's area and talk to Telinu. Give her the 
correct formula for making Dryad armor (conversation option #3). You'll 
complete the Armorer's Apprentice quest and get a suit of magical Dryad armor 
and another magic item.

You may be infected with plague, but all areas of Eirulan are now open to you.
Go to the pet shop and walk counter-clockwise around behind the pet shop to 
find a ramp leading up to Laenne's house. Talk to her about a "Lost Sapphire 
of the Elves" hidden in the Elven Shrine. Since you're going there anyway...

You might want to buy a pet: the local pet store currently has a pack mule 
(300 gold), ice elemental (500 gold) and scorpion queen (350 gold).
 
Next to the pet shop is a house where you meet Lelani. Talk to her to begin 
the Lelani's Sorrow trading quest. This quest will span much of the game, but 
you can make the first trade now. Take the child's doll Lelani gives you and 
head for the Falls, which you can reach using a lift from the Inn.

In the first house, talk to Fenella and give her the doll. She'll give you a 
flask of Elven ale in return. Walk through the back door of Fenella's house 
and take the elevator down. Follow the path to another elevator, go up and 
enter the house to talk to Tamari. She'll give you the Kithraya Hive quest.

Outside Tamari's house, activate the lever to lower the bridge for a shortcut 
back. Head to the Inn and stop inside for a chat with the grizzled bar patron, 
who is sitting, amazingly, at the bar. Keep choosing conversation option #1 
to get a quest for the future, Secrets of Xeria's Temple.

If you want to add another companion slot to your party, speak to the 
Innkeeper. Adding a companion slot costs 500 gold. While at the Inn, go into 
the room behind the bar to pick up a book, The Hak'u.

Once you're done in town, teleport back to the Western Greilyn Jungle. From 
the teleporter, head west, off the path, to find an incantation shrine and a 
lectern with the Lesser Chant of Mage Health. Continue exploring westward to 
find a Hak'u encampment that includes the house of the Hak'u usurper. You 
can't do anything about him now, but you can loot the environs, picking up 
some good magical items, the Lesser Chant of Casting and the Lesser Chant of 
Ranger Health.

At the far west end of the map, you'll find a ghost (part of a later quest) 
and the Vigilant Boots, part of the Nature's Vigilance set. Make your way 
back to the main path and continue south. You'll come to a Dryad outpost. 
They give you permission to loot them, so do so--don't miss the armor stand 
in the corner or the Lesser Chant of Fighter Health on the lectern. Now all 
you have left to do is follow the gray dirt road to the Elven Shrine.

In the first level of the shrine, you can find a sanctuary door that requires 
ranged level 6 or better to open. Clear out a couple of rooms to find the 
lift down to level 2. At the bottom of the lift, search for a button on the 
west wall, near the lift, to open a secret room and begin your search for the 
Lost Sapphire of the Elves.

Loot the room, then left-click the Green Life Cube pile to pick up a cube, 
then left-click the Green Life Cube Socket to place the cube in the socket. A 
lever is revealed. Activate the lever to be taken down a level. Find the 
button on the north wall to open a secret room to the south. Get two cubes 
from the Yellow Sight Cube pile and place one in the Yellow Sight Cube Socket 
in the south room.

Grab two Red Blindness Cubes from the pile in the south room, then activate 
the revealed lever in the north room to go down one more level. Activate the 
button in the east wall to open the room with the Red Blindness Cube Socket. 
Place one cube there, then grab two Purple Death Cubes and put one in the 
appropriate socket in the other room.

Another secret room opens. Put your remaining cubes in the appropriate 
sockets in this order: Yellow - Red - Purple. Activate the lever to be taken 
to the sapphire, as well as three chant books: Lesser Chant of Fighter Power, 
Lesser Chant of Ranger Power and Lesser Chant of Mage Power.

You'll come back out in the lift room of level 2. Make your way south, 
looting the side rooms. One side room has a sanctuary door that requires a 
level 6 or higher nature mage to open.

Once you descend a flight of steps, prepare for a boss fight. There are three 
very tough Hak'u in the next room, one of which keeps reviving as long as the 
other two are alive. Once the three boss Hak'u are dead, the door to the 
south opens and you can enter the fountain.

There are only a few weak Hak'u in this room. Kill them, then left-click the 
fountain to fill your vial. Grab the Chant of Lesser Prosperity from the 
north wall. Use the teleporter to the east to return to Eirulan. Go see 
Laenne above the pet shop and give her the sapphire, then return to Taar to 
complete Chapter 4.


=======================================
[3.5] Chapter 5: The Dryad Exile Colony
=======================================

"After drinking from the fountain in the Elven Shrine, you filled your vial 
with the last of the curative water. You have been asked to bring it to a 
colony of exiled Dryads who have the plague."

Primary Tasks:
* Find the Dryad Exile Colony
* Save the old man

Secondary Quests:
* Dire Wolf
* Taar's Investigation

Add Taar to your party. If all your slots are filled, disband a henchman or 
go purchase a fourth slot from the Innkeeper (cost is 1,500 gold). With Taar 
in your party and the active character, go to the house next to the great 
hall and speak to Arianne. She tells of a great beast said to be controlled 
by the Hak'u. Agree to track down this beast--if it exists.

Go over to the pet shop and talk to the merchant. Select conversation option 
#2 about wanting something stronger. She will tell you about dire wolves. 
Rokhar, a mage who hangs about in the great hall, knows quite a bit about 
them. Go back to the great hall and speak to Rokhar. Agree to meet him in the 
Southern Jungle.

Teleport from Eirulan to the Northern Greilyn Jungle. Remember the Hak'u 
ritual camp you cleared out earlier? Time to visit there again. Go north and 
then west from the Northern Jungle teleporter until you reach the health 
shrine. Then go north over the bridge to the ritual camp.

Clear the Hak'u, then click the carcass on the top of the altar. The Hak'u 
Ceremonial Blade should drop on the ground. Pick it up and teleport back to 
Eirulan. Go to the pet shop terrace and leave through the South Gate.

When the trail turns east, go south and pass through a gap in the rocks. 
Enter a small cave and have it out with the garganturax--the "formidable" 
creature that scared Arianne. The garganturax can't be hurt by melee weapons 
other than the Ceremonial Blade, so equip that to your fighter. However, the 
Blade doesn't do much damage against this little monster. Pepper it with 
spells and ranged weapons--which do damage it--and try to keep it occupied 
with the Blade wielder.

You can wait to finish Arianne's quest until you've finished the Dire Wolf 
quest, so get back on the main path and continue east. Along the way you 
should find Some Abandoned Ruins (yes, that's what they're called). Find the 
interactive chalice on the north wall (it's the left of the two center cups) 
to open a secret room with some decent loot in it. Just east of the ruins is 
a cave with an elder Hak'u witch doctor. He has good loot as well.

Continue east until you reach the Southern Greilyn Jungle teleporter and, 
just beyond that, Razka's Ruins. There's a mini-boss here, a Morden-Viir 
Spearman Captain who is weak to ranged attacks. Clear out the monsters and 
continue east; don't go down in the ruins as you'll need a key to fully 
explore them and you won't get the key for quite some time yet. Just past 
Razka's Ruins, turn north and cross the bridge and enter the cave that's to 
your right as you come over the bridge.

Fight your way through the cave to enter Rokhar's Rift Site. Talk to Rokhar 
and he'll start summoning a dire wolf, while a horde of nawl beasts come 
through the rift. Go into Rampage Party mode and lay into the nawl beasts 
until Rokhar manages to bring the dire wolf through the rift. Then talk to 
him and he will travel back to Eirulan to deliver the wolf to the pet 
merchant.

Loot the rift area. About this time you can expect your first encounter 
with ???. ??? is a mysterious, level 100 humanoid thief that teleports in 
randomly when you discover valuable loot. He steals a few items and teleports 
out. You can attack him, but, at this point in the game, you won't be able to 
kill him. However, attacking him will keep him from stealing your stuff and 
make him drop an item or two of his own.

You may see ??? at this point, you my not see him until later. Always keep 
your eyes open for him and your weapons ready. Teleport back to town. Go see 
Arianne and complete Taar's Investigation, then head over to the pet shop and 
talk to the pet seller to conclude the Dire Wolf quest. Buy a puppy if you 
like.

Teleport back to the Southern Greilyn Jungle and head east once more; you're 
now entering the Eastern Greilyn Jungle. Just past the point you turned north 
to find Rokhar, look for a cave entrance to the south--there should be two 
vulk in front of it. Inside you can score the final piece of Nature's 
Vigilance--the Vigilant Crest (helmet). Opposite the cave, to the north, is a 
plateau with a circle of mushrooms on it. This is part of a later quest.

Keep following the main path, which will soon turn south. Look for a small 
tower to the east (your left) and go down into it to get some good loot. You 
are now just outside the Dryad Exile Camp.

**GLITCH WARNING**

SAVE YOUR GAME!

There's a glitch just ahead; so don't save over your game until you complete 
this chapter. Continue to the Dryad camp. Inside, an old man is being 
attacked by plagued Dryads. Wait a moment while they beat up on him a bit--
this should trigger his scripts so you can complete the quest. Kill the 
plagued Dryads, then talk to the old man, who turns out to be an Azunite 
scholar who will fill you in on what Valdis is up to (assuming you haven't 
already figured it out).

Sometimes the scholar's scripts won't work and he'll keep calling for help 
even after you've killed all the Dryads. If that happens to you, reload and 
try again.

Thus ends Chapter 5...


=====================================
[3.6] Chapter 6: Leaving Greilyn Isle
=====================================

"The old man you saved is interested in all things Azunite, and calls himself 
the Azunite Scholar.

"He confirmed what Taar told you: there is a portal to the mainland on the 
eastern shore of Greilyn Isle that leads off the island. He also warned you 
that you must pass through the Kithraya Caverns to reach it."

Primary Tasks:
* Locate the Kithraya Caverns
* Look for survivors from Vix's squad
* Investigate Eastern Greilyn Beach
* Destroy the shard
* Use the portal to leave Greilyn Isle
* Talk to Captain Suzor

Secondary Quests:
* The Hak'u, Part II
* Feldwyr the Blacksmith
* The Kithraya Hive

After the history lesson, talk to the Azunite scholar again and he will open 
the path east. Loot the camp, then take the west path (yes, that's west, not 
east). Near the incantation shrine, find a small cave where you can locate 
Hrawn, the Hak'u. Talk to him to open the remainder of the Hak'u, Part II 
quest.

Leave Hrawn and his father and return to the Dryad camp. This time take the 
newly opened east path and then turn south and find the Eastern Greilyn 
Jungle teleporter. Teleport to the Western Jungle.

From the Western Greilyn Jungle teleporter, go due west to find the usurper's 
house. (You may remember having explored this area earlier, during your trip 
to the Elven Shrine.) Knock on the door of the house. The usurper will let 
you in and try to kill you. Do unto him before he does unto you.

Teleport to the Eastern Jungle and make your way to Hrawn's cave. Talk to his 
father to receive your reward. Now teleport back to Eirulan and visit Hesla 
in the infirmary to receive even more reward, including a bonus skill point 
for all members of your party.

It's about time to sell off some loot; once you've done that, teleport to the 
Eastern Greilyn Jungle. Continue along the main path. You will soon reach 
some ruins and the path will turn south, over a bridge. Enter the ruins, kill 
some Hak'u and find Feldwyr the blacksmith. Talk to him to initiate his quest.

In the room south of Feldwyr is a lift that will take you up into a locked 
tower on the cliff above the ruins. You can unlock the door from the inside, 
creating a little shortcut back down to Feldwyr. After talking to the 
blacksmith, the door to the east opens and you can go down into the depths of 
the ruins.

Before heading down the stairs, in the room just east of Feldwyr, look on the 
north side of the north, central column. Pull the lever to open a secret room. 
In the secret room, find the button on the west wall to open another secret 
room. There's yet a third room (not hidden) beyond this second room. Once you 
are finished looting, go downstairs.

At the bottom of the second stairway, you can turn either left (north) or 
right (south). Go north and fight your way through a bunch of relatively low-
level Hak'u until you find the mini-boss and get Feldwyr's anvil. In the 
eastern-most room of this set of rooms, look for a lever on the wall that 
opens the center room and find a treasure chest.

Back at the fork in the path, going south presents you with a level 24 mini-
boss guarding a room full of level 22 mobs. Not only would it be almost 
impossible to defeat this mini-boss (your characters are probably about level 
14, unless you've been doing some farming); but, you won't get much XP from 
the encounters since they are so much higher in level than you. Best to wait 
until you're about 20th level, then return here and clear out the southern 
portion of the ruins.

Leave Feldwyr's sanctuary and continue south over the bridge. You will soon 
enter a narrow cavern which leads to a ridge above the path you've been 
traveling. You'll find a tower here, inside of which is Vix, a human ranger 
who offers to join you for your trip through the caverns. If you tell Vix to 
take a hike, he will--but only as far as the Eirulan Inn. Also inside the 
tower are two chants, the Lesser Chants of Magic Awareness and Ranged 
Awareness.

After passing through Vix's tower, you'll enter the Upper Kithraya Caverns. 
Fight your way through them. About 3/4 of the way you'll find a large chamber 
with two exits: a wide one in the southeastern corner and a narrow one in the 
southwestern corner. There's also a broken elevator, but you can't fix it 
until you've got someone named Finala with you--and you won't meet her until 
Act II.

Take the narrow, southwest passage to a dead end with a mini-boss and a 
little loot. Then take the wider passage to the southeast to find a 
teleporter and the entrance to the Lower Kithraya Caverns.

Fight your way through the caverns until you encounter one of Vix's soldiers, 
who is quite possessed. Soon after leaving the zombified remains of the 
soldiers behind, you'll come to a fork in the path. Take the right (south) 
path to find and kill the hive queen and get her head.

Head back the other way to enter Eastern Greilyn Beach. Fight the spirits and 
destroy the shard, then head down to the beach and talk to the scholar. After 
your conversation, the portal off the island is open. Step through to a small 
desert camp and talk to Captain Suzor.


============================================= 
[3.7] Chapter 7: Secret of the Azunite Desert
============================================= 

"A Human battalion from Windstone Fortress has been searching for a powerful 
Azunite weapon. They tell you that the keys to finding the weapon are guarded 
by the Skath, a fierce desert race."

Primary Tasks:
* Find the Stela of Blindness
* Find the Stela of Life
* Find the Stela of Death
* Find the Stela of Sight
* Place the four stelae and learn the location of the Lost Vault
  of the Azunites

Secondary Quests:
* The Kithraya Hive
* Lelani's Sorrow
* A Family Heirloom

After talking to Captain Suzor, step into the house behind her and talk to 
soldier Balamar. He wants something to drink and you should still have that 
flask of Elven Ale you got back in Chapter 4. Trade him the Ale for some 
skath cat ribs. If you did a lot of talking to people in Eirulan, you may 
remember someone who wants some meat...Yeah, time to make a trip to Eirulan 
and finish the Kithraya Hive quest and take another step on Lelani's Sorrow. 
Fortunately, there's a teleporter nearby.

Travel back to Eirulan and go see Tamari at the falls for your reward. On the 
way back, stop at the Inn and go upstairs and talk to soldier Jordhan. He's 
craving meat, so give him the skath cat ribs and receive a statuette of Xeria 
in return. Might as well put it in the storage vault, you won't find someone 
who wants it until near the end of Act II.

Sell your unwanted gear and teleport back to the Azunite Desert. Don't bother 
with the stuff south of camp just yet, you'll be coming back to that area 
later. Leave the camp to the northeast and go down to the first Skath 
Guardian. Kill him for the Stela of Blindness.

Go west, under the bridge, to find the Skath Guardian with the Stela of Life. 
Go back to where you killed the first Guardian, and go north, up the slope to 
a tower. Enter the tower and take the elevator down to speak with Master 
Thestrin. Ask him about his duty and about the riddle needed to pass a 
guardian statue in his family's crypt. After talking to Thestrin, find the 
button in the alcove on the west wall to open a secret treasure room.

Leave Thestrin and continue north past the tower and turn back south toward 
the bridge to kill the Skath Guardian with the Stela of Death. Turn and go 
north; before you go through the archway, turn left (west) and go down the 
stairs to face the final Guardian and get the Stela of Sight.

Go north into the Azunite cavern and clear it. Then head back up the stairs 
and through the archway you approached earlier. Clear out this main cavern, 
the cavern to the west and the small canyon to the north. Then take the east 
path from the cavern to the Azunite Shrine.

In the first room of the shrine, find the interactive block on the south wall 
and press it to open a secret room. Collect the loot, which includes the 
Lesser Chant of Purity.

Go through the east door and follow the hallways of the shrine. You will soon 
reach an octagonal treasure room with four chests in each corner and one in 
the center. The chest in the southeast corner is a mimic, which is a very 
tough foe; but, drops a lot of loot.

The other three corner chests open one of a set of side doors with level 16 
creatures. The center chest opens all four doors. It's up to you whether you 
want a gang war or a little 4-on-1 monster killing. Be sure to loot the small 
side rooms for more loot, including a Chant. Continue south to a series of 
two elevators that take you to the Inner Chamber of the shrine.

Right next to you is a sanctuary door that requires ranged 13 or better to 
open. On the east wall is a lectern with the Lesser Chant of Melee Awareness. 
After taking the treasure, place the Stelae in their sockets. A Map of the 
Lost Vault of the Azunites and a silver mirror appear on the central pedestal. 
Collect them, the door to the west opens, and Chapter 7 comes to an end.


==========================================
[3.8] Chapter 8: The Lost Azunite Artifact
==========================================

"Placing the four Stelae revealed the location of a lost Azunite vault. Find 
it and retrieve the weapon inside."

Primary Tasks:
* Find the Lost Vault of the Azunites
* Retrieve the Azunite Weapon
* Talk to the Elven spirit in the Lost Vault of the Azunites

Secondary Quests:
* None

This is a fairly short and linear chapter, though it may feel long and 
wandering due to the amount of combat, and twists the path takes--get used to 
it, it only gets worse from here. When you leave the Ancient Azunite Shrine, 
you'll come out into the Valley of the Azunites. To the south is the Cavern 
of the Phoenix, but there's nothing there for you...yet. Head north. You'll 
soon come to a teleporter, which will provide a welcome respite in Eirulan--
as well as a chance to unload some of your loot.

Teleport back to the Valley. Due east of the teleporter are some ruins. 
Careful searching will reveal an elevator. This leads to some Lost Elven 
Ruins; but, you're going to have to come back here again later, so leave it 
for now. Continue north, pass through another Azunite Cavern and come out on 
the cliff ledges above the small canyon in the Azunite Desert.

There's a bridge to cross to the other side and another Azunite Cavern. Fight 
your way through the cavern. Take note of the "broken" bridge to the 
northwest--this is, again, part of a later quest. Continue until you come to 
a mirror-and-light puzzle.

Gotta love those.

The statue in the southeast is missing its mirror, you can use the silver one 
you got from the shrine. Starting with the mirrorless statue, turn the 
statues in the numerical order listed below so the light is shining in the 
pattern shown:

   6---------------------7  3-----------------2
   |                     |  |                 |
   |                     |  |                 |
   |                     8-----------9        |

   5------------------------4                 1

A new path will open up, so take the long and winding stair to the Lost Vault 
of the Azunites. Retrieve the Azunite Artifact, which turns out to be an 
empty bowl.

Yes, that's right, an empty bowl.

Ah! But Mr. Plot Exposition Elven Spirit has popped up out of nowhere and a 
conversation with him will reveal--well, not all, but a good deal and set you 
up on your next quest.
 

===================================
[3.9] Chapter 9: Windstone Fortress
===================================

"The Azunite Ancestor within the Lost Vault of the Azunites has revealed much 
-- evidently you are a direct descendant of the great Azunai himself, which 
explains how you were able to wield the Azunite bowl without harm.

"You must now travel to Windstone Fortress to unlock the bowl's power and aid 
those stationed there."

Primary Tasks
* Begin the journey to Windstone Fortress by speaking to the Azunite Ancestor
* Take the Azunite Artifact to Windstone Fortress
* Find the person in command
* Enter the Windstone Fortress Outer Vault
* Activate the Azunite Artifact
* Enter the Temple of Xeria

Secondary Quests:
* The Imprisoned Half-Giant
* The Missing Squadron

While it was really nice of the Elven spirit to leave you a treasure chest, 
it would have been nicer for him to leave you a quick exit out of the Vault. 
Hoof it back up the stairs to the light puzzle room and talk to the Elven 
Spirit again. He'll open a path to the north that takes you to the Western 
Cliffs of Azunai.

There's a teleporter right here, but it's best to keep moving for now. Go 
east until the path ends, then search for a cave entrance to the south. Enter 
Isteru's Caverns. To the southwest you can find the entrance to some ruins 
that lead to an Ancient Elven Reliquary. But, you can't do anything down 
there right now, so ignore it. Work your way through the caverns, back out on 
to the cliffs, and back into the caverns again.

Keep following the caverns and cliffs until you reach a bridge. Cross the 
bridge, and to the east you can find a mini-boss and some loot. To the west, 
from the bridge, is the Eastern Cliffs of Azunai teleporter. Continue west 
and then north to enter the Windstone Tunnels. Once you get through the 
Windstone Tunnels, you'll be at the entrance to Windstone Fortress, which is 
not a very friendly place right now--if you haven't already figured that out.

Continue down the path, until you get the cutscene showing that Valdis has 
been here. Gee, that's a shock. At the locked door into the fortress, take 
the entrance to your right into the Eastern Gatehouse. Clear the gatehouse, 
then head down the hall.

There are three side-rooms here. The one to the north contains a little loot. 
The one to the southwest is where you'll meet Private Banos. Go ahead and 
talk to him and agree to take him to Squadron Leader Taarth. You'll get a new 
quest entry, Secondary Quest #13, The Missing Squadron--even though you 
haven't met Taarth yet. It's easier this way.

The room at the southeast corner of the hall contains another mimic. Beat it 
down with hero powers, then run back to the war pedestal in the gatehouse for 
a recharge and come back and beat on it some more. They do drop a lot of loot, 
so they're worth the trouble. Continue north, then west along the hall.

Off this northern hall are two side rooms. The one to the north has a mini-
boss and a treasure room to the east. The treasure room has the Lesser Chant 
of Magic Skill, and, behind the statue, a button to open another treasure 
room. The side room to the south is found by turning the statue set into a 
nook in the wall.

Head west again to enter Windstone Fortress proper. Before going north to 
activate the teleporter, head straight across into the Western Gatehouse. 
Clear it out to find Private Caiden (break the pots surrounding him or he 
won't follow you), the Lesser Chant of Melee Skill and a book: Vol. 7, The 
Deeds of Xeria. The book is part of a later quest.

Head back out into Windstone Fortress and go north. Enter the next west-
leading hallway to enter the barracks and work your way to the west-most room, 
where you'll find Private Nolan. Pick up the Lesser Chant of Ranged Skill in 
the same room. Along the northern hall of the barracks, look for a secret 
door switch on the north wall. There's another secret room off the first 
secret room. Return to the Fortress proper and talk to Squadron Leader Taarth, 
who will be delighted to see his men and will reward you with the Dusty Key.

Just west of Taarth is a half-giant in a hole. Speak to Sartan to open the 
Imprisoned Half-Giant quest and prepare the way for another possible henchman. 
Past Sartan is Captain Dathry, the man in charge. Speak to him to continue 
the main quest in this chapter.

Enter the eastern hall and push the button on the wall to open the Outer 
Vault. The next room contains a Yellow Sight socket and some Yellow Sight 
cubes. You know what to do. Beyond are two Green Life sockets; the green 
cubes are in the room to the right (south).

Next are two Red Blindness sockets and the zombiefied Lieutenant Namyek, who 
will cough up the Inner Vault Key if you give him a permanent Heimlich. Open 
the Red Blindness door and enter the Inner Vault. After the zombies are dead 
(re-dead?), thoroughly loot the room and then click on the blue flame to 
activate your Azunite artifact.

Grab four Purple Death cubes from the corner of the room and open the door 
that is just north and east of the blue flame. Inside is the White Vault door, 
which requires the Dusty Key to open. Lucky you did that quest for Taarth, 
right? Open the vault, place your four purple cubes and collect copious 
amounts of treasure.

Return to Captain Dathry with your artifact. He'll blow open the way 
northward. Then talk to Soldier Orayne to free Sartan and talk to Sartan to 
complete the Imprisoned Half-Giant quest. Go north and fight your way through 
the big bugs, which shouldn't be too hard if you've been doing all the 
sidequests so far. Enter the Temple of Xeria...


======================================
[3.10] Chapter 10: The Temple of Xeria
======================================

"Valdis and his Archmage have entered the Temple of Xeria at the heart of 
Windstone Fortress. Hopefully the Azunite artifact is as powerful as they say 
because you're going to need all the power you can get to help save Windstone 
Fortress."

Primary Tasks
* Clear out the Temple of Xeria
* Place the Azunite Artifact on the Azunite statue
* Find the shard
* Destroy the giant trilisk in the temple courtyard
* Destroy the shard
* Go through the portal to the town of Aman'lu

Secondary Quests:
* Feldwyr the Blacksmith
* A Family Heirloom
* The Secrets of Xeria's Temple

Fight more bugs until you get to a large room with a pit in the center. In 
the pit are two (rapidly becoming familiar) sockets: green and yellow. Pick 
up three green stones from the southeast corner of the room and place one in 
the green socket. This opens a door on the west wall. Go in there and get 
three yellow stones. Place one on the yellow socket in the pit.

A door on the south wall opens. Enter and place a yellow and a green stone. 
Two more doors open up. Go to one of those rooms and collect three red stones. 
Then enter the other newly opened room and place one of your red stones in 
the socket with one red symbol, and then a second red stone in the socket 
with two red symbols. Grab three purple cubes from the one side room and 
place one in the purple socket in the other side room.

This opens another side room with another purple socket. Place your stone and 
then you're back in the room with all four color sockets. Place a stone in 
each. Collect your booty, including the Chant of Scholars.

Oh, yeah! Main quest. Back to the pit room and open the north doors. Kill all 
the zombies and loot the side rooms. There's a secret room on the west side, 
make sure you find it and take out the zombie trash. Once all the zombies are 
immobile, click the big, glowing statue to blow up all the zombies in the 
Fortress. Enter the north room and loot it thoroughly, including two books: 
Vol. 8, The Death of Xeria; and, Vol. 9, The War of Legions.

In the southeast corner of the room you'll find a moveable statue on the 
stair landing. This leads to an elevator, which takes you to a little bit of 
loot. To the north, next to the incantation shrine, is another moveable 
statue that leads to the Cavern of Earth--but, there's nothing you can do 
there now.

Back in the large room, take the east door to find the teleporter. Now's a 
good time to wrap up a couple of quests. Teleport to the Eastern Greilyn 
Jungle and travel east until you reach Feldwyr's underground shelter. Head 
downstairs from Feldwyr's room.

If you haven't retrieved Feldwyr's anvil yet, head north and rampage through 
the Hak'u until you get the anvil from the level 16 mini-boss. Now go to the 
south set of rooms, which are guarded by a level 24 mini-boss and full of 
level 22 creatures (and another mini-boss with the mithril ore). You should 
now be able to take these monsters. Once you have both the anvil and mithril 
ore, going up the stairs to see Feldwyr results in a cutscene in which his 
hammer is stolen.

Follow the newly opened path north of Feldwyr's room and kill more level 22 
creatures and another level 24 mini-boss. Return to Feldwyr with his hammer 
and he rewards you with a fantastic weapon...Which will take a few days to 
make. When you finally reach Aman'lu at the beginning of Act II, you can 
search out the blacksmith and speak to his apprentice, who happens to be 
Feldwyr's brother, Fyrndolf. He'll give you the reward.

Teleport to the Azunite Desert and go southeast to find a Ruined Crypt. Talk 
to the statue and answer its riddle with Azunai, Xeria, Elandir and Zaramoth 
(conversation options 3, 3, 1 and 1). You should be able to handle the level 
28 and 30 enemies in the treasure room; but, your main objective is the 
glowing sword lying on the crypt.

Grab the sword and head back to Thestrin's tower. He'll reward you with a 
bogus Mysterious Chant (don't ever use it). You can either give him the sword, 
which will net you another Chant (this one useful), or keep the sword if you 
find his story a bit fishy.

Teleport to Eirulan and go talk to the grizzled bar patron to end the Secrets 
of Xeria's Temple quest. Refit your party as needed and teleport back to 
Xeria's Temple. Head north for the Act I boss battle.

The Giant Trilisk looks quite fearsome, but it's pretty easy. The middle head, 
Vitalus, is the problem child--it will heal the other two, but not itself. 
The snake only uses area-of-effect attacks that don't seem to hurt fighters 
that are up close. So go beat on the middle head, use your powers (they'll 
recharge quickly enough whacking off 15,000 health) and kill Vitalus. Once 
it's been chunked, the other two go down quickly enough.

Destroy the shard, talk to Captain Dathry and then enter the portal to 
Aman'lu.


****************************************************************************
                       ACT II: THE NORTHERN REACHES
****************************************************************************

=====================================
[3.11] Chapter 1: The Town of Aman'lu
=====================================

"Your hometown has suffered a devastating attack. Find out what happened."

Primary Tasks:
* Speak with Celeb'hel the Elder in Alt'orn Hall in the town of Aman'lu

Secondary Quests:
* Mythrilhorn
* Mark of the Assassin
* Deru's Treasure Hunt
* Arinth's Legendary Staff
* Viperclaw
* Tywlis' Broken Staff
* Feldwyr the Blacksmith
* A Family Heirloom, Part II
* Aman'lu Arena
* Lothar's Innocence
* A Dark Ohm

All you need do to complete this chapter is head straight for the building in 
the center of town and talk to Celeb'hel. Takes about a minute. However, as 
you can tell from the Secondary Quests list, there's a lot of talking that 
can be done in Aman'lu.

So, before going to see the Elder, wander about town and talk to people. 
Here's the brief rundown:

In the pet shop in the southeast corner of town, talk to the pet seller and 
ask about special animals. He'll refer you to Khartos the Wise, who's hiding 
in a tavern some where. (No wonder they call him wise.) This opens the 
Mythrilhorn quest, which will net you another pet choice once you reach Act 
III.

Just southwest of the pet shop, enter the abandoned house and note the bling-
bling on the table. Pick up this intriguing stone and get killed...almost. 
After the near miss, talk to Danadel to launch the Mark of the Assassin quest.

Southeast of the pet shop you can find Prospector Albain. Talk to him with 
Deru in your party to open Deru's Treasure Hunt.

North of the prospector, along the east side of town, is Eolanda's house. 
Talk to her about Arinth to get a quest to find the pieces of Arinth's 
Legendary Staff. She'll also give you Lore book: Vol. 10, The Legend of 
Arinth the Mad. Vol. 11, The Dryads and their Customs is on her table and Vol. 
14, Fables of Ancient Artifacts is on the floor.

Directly behind Eolanda's house is a ranger named Eumenidie. Talk to her 
about reagents to get the Viperclaw quest. Reagents are random drops and you 
might even have one or two right now. If you don't have what she needs, there 
are specific places in Act II where you can pick them up. These are noted 
later in the walkthrough.

Along the north side of town, just west of the incantation shrine, is Tywlis' 
house. Talk to her about her grandfather's staff to get her quest. The 
reagent she needs is a rainbow trinket. Check your pockets, you might already 
have one. You can also visit Tywlis' basement, but there's nothing you can do 
down there...yet.

Near Tywlis' house is the house of a fletcher named Ithir'renne. She has an 
Aman'lu orchid, a well-known symbol of Aman'lu. Think that might make Lelani 
back in Eirulan happy? Yeah, but you've got a long way to go before you can 
trade Ithir'renne for her orchid.

Also on the north side of town is the house of Drianjul, Drevin's sister. 
Talk to her to learn news of your family and receive a letter from Drevin.

In the burnt-out blacksmith shop on the west side of town is Feldwyr's 
brother, Fyrndolf. Talk to him to get your special weapon and officially 
close that quest.

On to the Inn, which is just full of people to talk to and things to do.

Athelas is hanging out near the Innkeeper. You may recognize his name from 
your talk with Thestrin. Regardless of whether or not you kept the heirloom 
sword, talk to Athelas to initiate the second part of this quest.

Amren is hanging out at the bar; you can add him to your party if you're 
lacking a ranger. He's currently a level 20 ranged character, with a bunch of 
unspent skill points waiting for you to specialize him.

The barkeep, Drudwyn, has heard of you--so he thinks. Talk to him and deny 
everything he thinks you've done. He'll eventually admit there's a little 
challenge for adventurers down below his wine cellar. When you decide to go 
down there, you will officially open the Aman'lu Arena quest.

On the second floor of the Inn, pick up a Lore book: Vol. 13, Elandir's Life 
and Teachings. There's also a ghostly spirit up here on a balcony, note it 
for later.

On the ground floor, find Roland and talk to him with Lothar and open 
Lothar's Innocence in your quest log.

South of the Inn is the mage shop. Lyssanore sells magic supplies and is also 
interested in communicating with spirits. Talk to her about that and get the 
quest, A Dark Ohm, to retrieve the necessary chant. Go up to the second floor 
of Lyssanore's shop to pick up two Lore books: Volumes 12 and 15.

Well, that's it. You've made a circuit of the town and your quest cup runneth 
over. Go to the central building and talk to Celeb'hel to begin the next 
chapter. Before leaving town hall, grab the Lore book: Vol. 5, Turmanar and 
its Aftermath, from the table.


==============================================
[3.12] Chapter 2: Finala and the Broken Bridge
==============================================

"Celeb'hel the Elder told you that Princess Evangeline of the Northern 
Reaches took the Aegis of Death away by caravan to Snowbrook Haven. Valdis 
arrived not long after and demanded the Aegis. When he discovered that it was 
gone, Valdis commanded his Archmage to take vengeance on the town of Aman'lu. 
In the resulting destruction, the town's bridge was broken. If you have any 
chance of catching up to the caravan, you must convince Finala, the town 
engineer, to repair the bridge. This will be easier said than done -- Finala 
is a childhood friend of yours, but she harbors some resentment surrounding 
your decision to leave Aman'lu and join Valdis' army. You'll definitely have 
some explaining to do."

Primary Tasks:
* Find Finala, the town's engineer, in the hills north of Aman'lu
* Convince Finala to return to Aman'lu and repair the broken bridge

Secondary Quests:
* Viperclaw

Head to the north gate of Aman'lu and talk to the guard to open it. Follow 
the path up into the hills. When you reach the bridge over the swamp, search 
down in the swamp in the southernmost corners to find a jagged arrowhead for 
Eumenidie. There are no side areas, except some minor treasure in the 
basement of one of the houses. It's the house just east of the health shrine 
at the top of the first line of hills.

You will eventually reach Finala. You'll find it a simple matter to convince 
her to head back to Aman'lu to fix the broken bridge while you are tasked 
with going to the Elen'lu Isles.


===================================
[3.13] Chapter 3: The Elen'lu Isles
===================================

"Finala had been on her way to activate the Prism of the Elves, an ancient 
protective device that should put out the magical flames in town. You 
convinced her to return to Aman'lu to work on repairing the bridge, so now it 
is up to you to activate the Prism of the Elves."

Primary Tasks:
* Travel to the Elen'lu Isles
* Find and replace the prism's four small refractor crystals
* Find the prism's large refractor crystal and activate the prism
* Return to Aman'lu and speak with Finala

Secondary Quests:
* Viperclaw

Once Finala leaves, continue on the path, eventually entering the Northern 
Vai'lutra Forest. When you reach the incantation shrine, keep going northwest 
to find a damp cave, which has a lot of taclaks and a bit of loot. Due east 
of the cave is a ramp leading down into a cul-de-sac. Here you can find an 
elevator that leads to an Ancient Elven Reliquary. You'll return here later, 
when you can talk to ghosts.

Return to the main path, which heads south. When the path turns east, 
continue south to find a hollow tree. On the east inside wall is a button 
that will bring up a treasure chest. Continue east and you'll soon find a 
teleporter. Turn north into the swamp to find another hollow tree with some 
loot. Then proceed east, through the ruined temple to reach the Elen'lu Isles.

Now you get a new task. The taclak have stolen the refractor crystals that 
collect the diffuse light in the Isles and focus it on the main prism. You 
must find four crystals and replace them in the refractors and aim the 
refractors at the prism.

**GLITCH WARNING**

Some have been unable to complete this quest as the game does not recognize 
they have crystals to place in the refractors. This apparently is caused by 
accidentally double-clicking a refractor. The game allows the player to place 
two crystals in the refractor. You can either be really, really careful to 
not double-click a refractor, or only collect and place one crystal at a time. 
Since the crystals go in your Quest Items log, not your actual Inventory, you 
have to be real careful here and have a backup save from before you started 
the quest.

On the first island, kill the taclak and collect the first crystal. Then go 
east by clicking the arch over the bridge to extend it. Watch out for taclak, 
who have the ability to jump from island to island.

At the next island, turn north, then go east, north and west. Find the 
elevator that leads to a flooded chamber and work your way through the rooms 
to another elevator. This brings you out on an island north of your starting 
point. There's a griffon feather on the ground for the Viperclaw quest.

Now go south, east, north, east and east again and kill the taclak for your 
second crystal. Go south three islands, then take the other north bridge (the 
one to the east) to find the first refractor. Click it to place a crystal, 
then click it again to turn it so it shines west toward the prism.

Go back south, then head west two islands to pick up your third crystal. Go 
north, then to the north end of the island to reach the second refractor. 
Turn it once to point east. Go back to the south end of the island and take 
the southeast bridge, then go east to the third refractor. Turn it three 
times to point north.

Backtrack past the second refractor and go north to pick up crystal #4. Then 
go north and then east to refractor #4. Turn it three times to point south.

Now you have to find the big crystal that goes in the prism. Go back to 
refractor #2 island and take the east bridge to the main island. Kill the 
mini-boss for the prism crystal. Put it in the top of the pyramid and watch 
the cutscene. Then kill the horde of taclak, including mini-boss, that 
surround you.

From the north end of pyramid island, you can open a westward bridge that's a 
shortcut back to the teleporter. Or just use a summon teleporter spell to get 
back to Aman'lu. Head to the south end of town and talk to Finala, who has 
fixed the bridge and wants to come with you. She's an accomplished combat 
mage, so take her along if you like.


===================================
[3.14] Chapter 4: The Royal Caravan
===================================

"Now that Finala has repaired the bridge, you can attempt to catch up to 
Princess Evangeline's caravan and ensure that the Aegis of Death doesn't fall 
into the hands of Valdis."

Primary Tasks:
* Locate the Caravan
* Find the Vai'kesh sanctuary
* Find the leader of the Vai'kesh

Secondary Quests:
* Finala's Contempt
* Lothar's Innocence
* Amren's Vision

Before haring after the caravan, add Finala to your party and teleport to 
Eirulan and thence to the Kithraya Valley. Take Finala north into the Upper 
Kithraya Caverns and find the broken elevator. With Finala as the active 
character, click the broken mechanism and ride the elevator down into a 
Morden intelligence camp. Have Finala open the treasure chest to get a map to 
four hidden Morden towers.

Teleport to the Southern Greilyn Jungle and head west to the Abandoned Ruins. 
Finala will find a secret door inside the ruins and you can follow the path 
to an elevator that takes you up to a plateau with the first Morden tower. 
Destroy it as you did the towers in Act I.

Teleport to the Northern Greilyn Jungle and go to the impassable wall just 
north of the teleporter. You know, the one that's been bugging you since Act 
I, Chapter 3. Finala will find the secret entrance. Pass through and destroy 
three Morden towers. After the final tower is destroyed, Finala finds another 
map and an elevator gear. That's all you can do until Act III, so teleport 
back to Aman'lu and head south.

As you leave town, there's a house to the west where you can pick up a Lore 
book, Vol. 3: Downfall of the Manu Ostar. You can also talk to Alar'ithil, 
who is one of the later links in Lelani's MLM scheme. Enter the house to the 
east and talk to Eldoriath to start the Servant's Haunt quest. You can't 
continue it until you've completed A Dark Ohm, but might as well get it in 
the quest log.

Continue south and enter the Southern Vai'lutra Forest. Look for a burned-out 
farmstead to the east. You can get the Chant of Strength from inside the 
house. As you continue south, look for a set of steps back to the northwest. 
The house on top of the plateau has the Chant of Dexterity and Chant of 
Intelligence.

Further south, look for a narrow valley leading to a cul-de-sac to the east. 
This is Magrus' house, which you can't enter right now. Note it for later. A 
bit further down the trail, you can find a hollow tree off to the right 
(west). The button to raise the chest is on the east wall.

You'll soon reach the teleporter, which is for the Southern Vai'lutra Forest 
(North). Ah! Egregious apostrophes and contradicting directions! It must be a 
fantasy RPG! Anyway...just west of the Southern North teleporter is another 
mushroom circle.

These circles mean something special to Amren. Add him to your party, if 
necessary, and take him to the mushrooms. He'll have a vision. (That happens 
to lots of people when they have too many mushrooms.) Afterward, one of the 
mushrooms will be glowing. Click the mushroom to activate an elevator to a 
secret shrine.

This is the Shrine of Sight. Find the altar and have Amren click it to 
activate the shrine. You can also pick up a Lore book, Vol. 18: The Path of 
Sight. You may remember the mushroom circle in the Eastern Greilyn Jungle. At 
some point, take Amren to the Southern Greilyn Jungle teleporter and go 
northeast to that circle, which leads to the Shrine of Sight and contains 
Lore book, Vol. 17, The Path of Life.

For now, your quest continues south, over a bridge. Before crossing the 
bridge, go east into a little grotto to get the XP from killing a mini-boss 
and collect a nice haul. After crossing the bridge, look for a cave entrance 
to the west.

This is a Watery Cave and filled with level 24 mobs and a level 26 mini-boss. 
Make sure Lothar is in your party. Defeat the monsters and then find a half-
giant mushroom farmer named Magrus. Talk to him and you'll find the thief who 
stole Roland's cloak. He'll flee to his house, but drop his key.

How conveeeeeenient!

Take a quick side-trip back north to Magrus' house, enter and beat Magrus 
down. He'll surrender and go back to town. Follow him, speak to Roland and 
Magrus at the Inn and receive your reward for Lothar's Innocence.

Back to the main quest. The Watery Cave has two entrances/exits. Due east of 
the southern entrance is A Small Cave(tm) filled with mini-boss level mobs 
that drop a lot of loot. Be sure to stop in and pay them a visit during your 
tour.

Continue on the main path. You will soon reach what looks like a shrine, but 
is, in fact, the entrance to the Levreth Estate, which is underground. 
There's really not much you can do down there now, so pass it by and continue 

on your way. You'll reach your first objective: the caravan. Which is lying 
in pieces next to a teleporter (the Southern South one, in case you were 
wondering).

Talk to the wounded elf on the ground to update your journal, then continue 
on your way. Look for a plateau to the east not far beyond the wrecked 
caravan. There's a hollow tree with an elevator that drops you right on top 
of a mini-boss.

Back on the main path, you will soon enter the Vai'kesh Forest and find 
yourself at a set of gates. You can't get through, so turn left and follow 
the trail to the Vai'kesh sanctuary. You can choose to be nice to the guards 
at the door or pick a fight. Either way, they're eventually going to end up 
dead, so do as you please and enter the Sanctuary.

When you talk to the Prophet, he takes the Aegis of Death and runs away. 
Leaving you to slaughter his minions, but only after you start...


=====================================================
[3.15] Chapter 5: The Vai'kesh and the Aegis of Death
=====================================================

"You confronted the Vai'kesh Prophet about the Aegis and the princess. You 
learned that he has the Aegis -- but instead of giving it to you, he fled. 
Catch him and recover the Aegis of Death."

Primary Tasks:
* Follow the Vai'kesh Prophet
* Continue following the Vai'kesh Prophet
* Follow the Vai'kesh Prophet along Arinth's Ravine
* Defeat the Vai'kesh Prophet and his followers
* Find the Aegis of Death
* Defeat the Knotted Shambler
* Claim the Aegis of Death
* Talk to the Azunite Scholar

Secondary Quests:
* A Family Heirloom, Part II
* A Dark Ohm
* Viperclaw

Clean up the Vai'kesh mess in the auditorium, then start looting the place. 
There's a sanctuary door (nature mage level 22) on the south wall. On the 
east wall, find a button to open a secret door and collect the Chant of 
Fighter Power. Then find the button on the wall right next to the door to 
open another secret room that has a mimic.

Back in the main room, find another button along the east wall--this one on 
the steps behind a pillar. In the secret room revealed you can collect the 
Chant of Mage Power. Click the pedestal along the north wall of this room to 
open yet another secret room with some minor loot.

Finally, on the north wall of the auditorium is a sanctuary door (ranger 
level 22) that has a treasure chest and the Chant of Ranger Power. Now that 
the swag is safely stored in your pockets, follow the Prophet through the 
door in the center of the room.

Fight your way out of the sanctuary--look for Lore book: Vol. 2, The Dark 
Wizards on a table on one stairway--and emerge into the Vai'kesh Forest. 
You're now south of the gates you passed earlier, so turn north and open them 
before continuing on the path. You'll quickly reach the Vai'kesh Forest 
(North) teleporter and the entrance to a Large Vai'kesh Cavern.

Fight your way through the cavern until you reach the Vai'kesh Forest (South) 
teleporter. You can find one secret room in the cavern, along the north wall 
after the third large Vai'kesh fight. Search for the secret lever to the left 
of the door.

Now, if you kept the heirloom sword from Thestrin's quest in Act I, make sure 
it's in your Inventory. From the Forest (South) teleporter, go south to find 
a Small Vai'kesh Prison. Enter and speak to Athelas. There's a demon encased 
in a force field.

If you earlier gave Thestrin the heirloom sword, he'll use it to break the 
demon's prison, then go hide in the corner. If you kept the sword, equip it 
to any character and use it to break the prison. (You do not need to keep the 
sword equipped to fight the demon.) Once the demon is destroyed, Thestrin 
will flee. Speak to Athelas to get your final reward and conclude the quest.

**GLITCH WARNING**

Some people have experienced difficulty getting the Prophet to continue 
moving if they skip the cutscenes during this next segment of the game. Don't 
skip through the cutscenes!

Head north from the prison to find the Prophet. He'll run away (again), 
leaving some minions to die for his cause. Help them fulfill their destiny, 
then enter the cave from whence they came.

After defeating the Vai'kesh in the outer cave, open the door to witness a 
Vai'kesh ritual. Kill the Vai'kesh, then return to Lyssanore in Aman'lu and 
teach her the chant. You'll get the Chant of the Dead added to your Lore 
entries and you can now speak to all those uncommunicative spirits throughout 
the land.

Head after the Prophet. After crossing the second bridge, turn right (west) 
to find a Small Vai'kesh Cave and loot it. You can't get through the door 
here until later, so don't worry about it. Continue south after the path 
turns east, to find another cave with more loot. You should find an onyx 
fragment for Eumenidie in one of these caves. Next time you're in Aman'lu, 
talk to her to finish the quest and get the viperclaw reagent. On to the next 
teleporter, which is at the western end of Arinth's Ravine.

Pass through the ravine. Look for another Vai'kesh cavern along the north 
side of the ravine. There's another locked door you can't yet pass, but some 
nice loot on the outside of the door. After passing over a bridge, you'll 
find a frozen cavern to the south. This is part of Deru's Treasure Hunt, so 
don't bother with it unless she's in your party and you've finished the first 
part of the Hunt.

Shortly after the frozen cavern, you'll see the Prophet again...briefly. Kill 
his minions and follow after him over the bridge. (Going due east just leads 
to a cavern you can't enter.) You'll soon reach the Eastern Arinth's Ravine 
teleporter. From here there are two paths that lead to the same place--the 
final confrontation with the Prophet.

The Prophet calls out a horde of minions, and has a powerful attack of his 
own. Your best bet is to run back towards the teleporter and draw the minions 
after you; the Prophet won't follow. Once all the Vai'kesh are down, the 
Prophet is fairly easy.

Too easy.

He's not the boss fight for this chapter. After the Prophet is down, explore 
the cave to the north for some loot, then enter the eastern cave to face the 
Knotted Shambler. The Shambler regenerates health from the leaves produced by 
the Leaf Generators scattered around. Ignore the Shambler until you've 
destroyed the generators. There are about six generators and they only show 
themselves one at a time.

Once you are sure you've destroyed the generators, concentrate on the 
Shambler. Hopefully, you've got a combat mage with some fire spells, because 
it's quite vulnerable to those. Avoid its pounding, overhead attacks and keep 
at it until it's defeated. Then take the Aegis of Death and speak to the 
Azunite Scholar to begin the next chapter.


=====================================
[3.16] Chapter 6: Princess Evangeline
=====================================

"After defeating the Vai'kesh's Knotted Shambler, the Azunite Scholar 
informed you that Princess Evangeline of the Northern Reaches has been 
captured by Valdis' Dark Wizards. You must find her, before it is too late."

Primary Tasks:
* Find the Azunite burial grounds
* Look for the Death Masks of Champion Rahvan's brothers
* Enter the Azunite catacombs
* Find Princess Evangeline
* Rescue Princess Evangeline

Secondary Quests:
* Spirits of Aranna
* A Servant's Haunt
* A Servant's Haunt II
* Arinth's Legendary Staff
* Deru's Treasure Hunt
* Amren's Vision
* Rahvan's Curse

Yes, the Azunite Scholar tells you to hurry, but there are no actual time 
limits in this game. So, take a break and go do some side quests. Now that 
you can chat up the neighborhood spirits, you can start in on a number of 
side quests. First, explore the grotto. The door the scholar just opened for 
you leads to a portal that takes you to the Snowbrook area; however, there 
are several more "rooms" in this cave.

In one room you'll find a ghost. Well, equipped with your fancy new Chant of 
the Dead, run outside and into the northern cave where you can find an 
incantation shrine. Incant and run back to the ghost and have a chat. Thus 
begins the world-spanning Spirits of Aranna quest. It makes even Lelani's 
little trading scam seem tame.

There are 18 woeful ghosts spread all over Aranna; you may recall seeing 
several already. You've just taken care of #9 on the list and there are nine 
more you can reach right now. While you're on your spiritual journey, you can 
also stop at the two Elven Reliquaries you've found thus far and pick up 
pieces of Arinth's Legendary Staff. And you can enter the Levreth Estate and 
take care of the Servant's Haunt quest. Finally, since you're making a world 
tour, might as well pick up Deru and do a bit of treasure hunting.

So get hopping! There's so much time and so little to do.

Wait. Reverse that. Thank you.

From the Eastern Arinth's Ravine teleporter, jump to the Southern Vai'lutra 
Forest (South) teleporter. There's an incantation shrine behind you on the 
hill. Incant and run east to the elevator down into the Levreth Estate. 
There's a second elevator to get down to the estate proper, where the spirit 
of Threnith Wilwarin awaits.

Speak with him and he will open the south door. Before following the ghost, 
go to the north room and pick up the Chant of Fighter Health and some 
treasure. To the west is another room with a mini-boss (level 27) and the 
Chants of Mage Health and Ranger Health.

Go back to the south room and pick up the portrait of Lady Levreth. Then talk 
to Threnith again. (Don't worry if the Chant wears off, once you've used it 
on a spirit, you can continue to talk to that spirit thereafter.) Threnith 
will open another door leading to a room with a lock of golden hair.

Pick up the hair and talk to Threnith to be led to a burned letter. Then talk 
to him once more to be shown the room with the family jewels. Now leave the 
estate and teleport back to Aman'lu. Head south to Eldoriath's house. Speak 
to him to close this quest; then speak to Threnith to open Part Deux.

Well, you needed to go to Eirulan anyway. While you're in Aman'lu, go to the 
basement of Tywlis' house and find the hidden button to open a secret room. 
Ride the elevator down to a hidden cellar. Cross the bridge and find the 
hidden button in the west passage to open the path to the ghost. There's an 
incantation shrine right here.

After speaking to the ghost, check your remaining Chant time (hover the mouse 
cursor over your character). You only need a couple of minutes to hoof it 
over to the Inn and speak to the ghost on the second floor balcony. If you 
can't make it, use the shrine in the northeast corner of Aman'lu. Now 
teleport to Eirulan.

Go to the Inn and confront Lady Levreth. She'll confess and tell you the name 
of the true murderer. Go to the Falls, use the incantation shrine at the 
bottom of the lift, then take either elevator down to the bottom of the Falls 
and speak to the ghost on the bridge. Leave Eirulan by the North Gate.

Head northwest to the Hak'u caves. There's both a shrine and a spirit here. 
Leave the caves by the back entrance to the Western Greilyn Jungle, turn 
north and head for the Tranquil Cave behind the waterfall. You should be able 
to reach it before your Chant wears off. If it does, continue north past the 
waterfall to find another shrine.

Head south to the Western Jungle teleporter and then go west to the Hak'u 
usurper's house to find a shrine and a spirit. Now teleport to the Azunite 
Desert and use the portal to get to the Eastern Beach. If you're quick enough, 
you don't even need to use the shrine here, just talk to the ghost that's 
only a short way up the path.

Take the portal back to the Desert and then teleport to the Lost Valley of 
the Azunites. The ghost and incantation shrine are at the south end of the 
valley, near the Cavern of the Phoenix. Teleport to the Western Cliffs of 
Azunai.

Go into Isteru's Caverns and find the ruins in the southwest corner. Climb 
the stairs to an elevator--the button for the elevator is hidden on the steps 
next to it. Incant the Chant of the Dead at the nearby shrine, then take the 
elevator down to an Elven Reliquary. Speak to the spirit to open the chest 
and get Arinth's Focusing Stone, part of Arinth's Legendary Staff.

Return to the teleporter and go to the Temple of Xeria. North of the big room 
where you killed all the zombies, next to the incantation shrine, is a switch 
that opens a secret passage. Incant, head up the secret stairs and take the 
south passage to find the spirit. That's ten down, only eight more to go, but 
they'll have to wait.

Finally, before returning to Aman'lu, add Deru to your party at the Eirulan 
Inn (if she's not already a member) and teleport to the South Greilyn Jungle. 
You'll be right next to Razka's Ruins. Ride the elevator down and clear out 
the rooms. Deru will be able to open the chained door, which leads to some 
swag and a key with a riddle.

The riddle leads to the Frozen Cave in the Vai'kesh Forest, so teleport back 
to Aman'lu and then to either the Western or Eastern Arinth's Ravine 
teleporter. The Frozen Cave is halfway along the ravine, on the south side. 
Deru can collect another riddle here, as well as some treasure. The new 
riddle points to the Plain of Tears, which you won't reach until Act III.

Return to town and replace Deru if she's not one of your regulars. Enter the 
central building and confront the murderer of Lord Levreth: Guardian 
Commander Wethril. This can only end in violence. Once he's dead, talk to 
Celeb'hel to close the quest and receive your reward.

One more stop. Teleport to the Elen'lu Isles and go west to an incantation 
shrine. Use the Chant of the Dead and bash your way quickly to the north. 
Look for a ramp that leads down into a grotto. There's an elevator at the 
northeast tip of the grotto. Take it down into an Elven Reliquary and obtain 
Arinth's Carved Rod.

Time to get back on the main quest. Teleport to Eastern Arinth's Ravine, go 
back to the grotto and take the portal to the Garden of the Ancients. As you 
exit the portal, directly to your east is a frozen crypt. Inside the crypt, 
in the southeast corner, is a statue that opens a secret room with the Chant 
of Master Self Awareness.

Follow the path until you reach the teleporter. Now, if you continue on the 
path, you will eventually reach the Azunite Burial Grounds, through which you 
must pass. You'll find the burial grounds guarded by Rahvan. He'll offer to 
let you pass if you bring him news of his three brothers. So, to get past 
Rahvan you're going to need the Death Masks of his brothers.

Rather than go all the way to the burial grounds and then backtrack to this 
area for the Death Masks, might as well get them now. There are actually four, 
one for each of Rahvan's brothers and one for Rahvan himself.

You'll find these Death Masks in Frozen Crypts scattered around the area. 
Each crypt has a bunch of mobs, a mini-boss (level 30) and three secret rooms 
on the non-entrance sides of the crypt. For example, if the entrance to the 
crypt is on the north side, the secret rooms will be on the south, east and 
west sides.

One crypt is directly south of the teleporter, another is a short distance 
east and a third is further east. The fourth crypt is west of the teleporter, 
on your way to the burial grounds.

Further west, just before you reach the second teleporter, is the third 
mushroom circle for Amren's Vision quest. If Amren is not in your party, 
summon a teleporter and go back and get him. This is the Shrine of Death. In 
it you can find the Lore book: Vol. 19, The Path of Death.

After finishing with Amren's magic mushrooms, continue south, past the 
teleporter, to reach the entrance to the burial grounds. Talk to Champion 
Rahvan to open the door to the grounds and begin Rahvan's Curse secondary 
quest.

In the entrance chamber of the burial grounds, you will see four symbols on 
the floor. In order they are Death (purple tree), Blindness (red eye), Sight 
(yellow eye) and Life (green tree). Memorize the order. Well, since you're 
reading this guide, you don't actually need to memorize the order...Well, 
anyway, the order is important.

The door leading down into the burial grounds is to the right of the floor 
symbols. Follow the halls until you reach a large cavern where the ice is 
falling from the ceiling. Explore the area thoroughly. In the western part of 
the room you'll find a chasm with a natural bridge across. On the north side 
of the chasm, to the east of the bridge is a group of stalagmites hiding the 
Chaotic Chant of Might.

Take the west path that up and out of the cavern area to another plateau of 
the Garden of the Ancients. To the west is an incantation shrine that you can 
use to talk to the ghost that is on the eastern peninsula of the plateau. 
This is Spirit of Aranna #12.

In the north of the plateau is a tower with an elevator that leads to some 
treasure, including the Chants of Melee and Ranged Awareness. And, of course, 
there are lots and lots and lots of monsters to give up some XP for your 
party. Not to mention graves to rob and dropped loot to collect.

Once you've had your fun, return to the burial grounds and continue south to 
reach another teleporter. Once you go over the bridge south of the teleporter, 
you are in the Azunite Catacombs. From the first platform, take either bridge 
to the second platform. Rotate the obelisks so they read, from left to right, 
as the symbols in the first room did: purple tree, red eye, yellow eye, green 
tree. Take the elevator down into the lower catacombs.

When you reach a fork in the path, go south to enter a shrine. Take out all 
the mobs, then find the purple tree symbol on the east side of the shrine. 
Incant the Lich's name given you by Champion Rahvan. A door will open to the 
Lich's tomb and you should be able to take him out pretty quickly. Loot the 
tomb, including a Chant. At some later point, be sure to return to Champion 
Rahvan to complete his quest and receive your reward.

Take the west path through the catacombs. You will soon pass over a long 
bridge and enter a large room full of columns. There's a small room to the 
west with a little loot. To the north lies your main goal: Princess 
Evangeline guarded by a Dark Wizard of Valdis.

The Wizard is actually pretty easy once you figure out his defenses and 
pattern. Using Drown on him will make him weak to lightning and ice, so both 
combat and nature mages can have their way with him. Having a nature mage 
cast Spirit Embrace on the party to immunize against the wizard's curses 
would also be helpful. There are some war pedestals scattered around the room 
to quickly recharge powers.

The Dark Wizard will summon some giant undead to guard him, but they're not 
too difficult. The wizard sticks to the center platform, so draw his summons 
away from him and destroy them. The wizard protects himself with three 
revolving crystal shards. Destroy the shards (not too hard) before unloading 
on the wizard with everything you've got.

He teleports around the platform, but it's not large so your melee fighters 
never have to run far to get back to him. Still, ranged attacks are better, 
so a fighter-heavy party might have some difficulty.

His main attack is a large, electrical explosion. Fortunately, you can see it 
coming when some sparking circles show up under your characters' feet. When 
they appear...run. Get away or you're going to take massive amounts of 
lightning damage. Once you learn how to avoid that attack, the wizard is a 
pushover--though it will take a while to drain his health.

After he's dead, talk to Princess Evangeline. Then talk to her again after 
she opens the north door. If you don't have room for her in your party right 
now, she'll go to the Inn of Aman'lu.

Onward and upward.


==============================================
[3.17] Chapter 7: The Siege of Snowbrook Haven
==============================================

"After defeating one of Valdis' Dark Wizards, you were able to release 
Princess Evangeline. Now you must journey to Snowbrook Haven and ensure the 
protection of the Aegis of Blindness (another piece of the legendary Shield 
of Azunai). Snowbrook Haven is under siege by Valdis' armies, so you will 
have to use an alternate entrance."

Primary Tasks:
* Enter Snowbrook Haven through the servant's quarters
* Find the throne room and acquire the display case key
* Locate the Snowbrook Haven Commander

Secondary Quests:
* Evangeline's Folly
* The Spirits of Aranna
* Arinth's Legendary Staff
* Arinth the Mad
* Lelani's Sorrow

The room Evangeline opens is full of enemies, but none that are particularly 
tough. Clear them out, then take the elevator up to a series of crypts. Fight 
your way through, looting as you go, until you exit into Snowbrook Valley. 
Quickly fight your way to the nearby teleporter and return to Aman'lu. Time 
for a side quest.

Add Princess Evangeline (Eva) to your party and equip her appropriately. 
Teleport to the Southern Vai'lutra Forest (South) teleporter and talk to the 
wounded caravan guard. He'll open Evangeline's Folly quest.

Teleport to the Western End of Arinth's Ravine. Go west, south, west and 
north to reach a bridge. Before the bridge, turn left (west) and go along the 
edge of the gap to reach a small cave. You may remember the password-
protected door from Chapter 5.

This time you'll be able to get through and pick a fight with the Vai'kesh in 
the room and the room beyond, which contains the jailor, who is mini-boss 
level. After killing all the Vai'kesh, speak with Eva's soldier in the jail 
cell.

The next cavern in your quest is along the north side of Arinth's Ravine, so 
hoof it back the way you came and fight your way along the ravine to the 
large cavern on the north side. Enter the cave, find the door and repeat the 
process of killing the jailor and talking to the soldier.

The third, and final, cave is further along the ravine, so head east. When 
you get to the second bridge, instead of crossing, continue east to find the 
entrance to the cave. Enter, kill the jailor and talk to Jessic to end the 
quest.

Now, reform your party, refit everyone and teleport back to Snowbrook Valley. 
There's nothing much to see here except snow and a lot of monsters, until you 
get to the bridge. After crossing the bridge, turn south to enter a Frigid 
Cave, where you can pick up a rainbow trinket for Tywlis in Aman'lu. Go north 
from the bridge and ride the elevator up to the top of the tower to get the 
Chant of Magic Awareness.

To the east of the tower is a set of stairs leading down to an elevator that 
will take you to an Elven Reliquary. Use the incantation shrine to the west, 
then descend and talk to the spirit to get the Jeweled Shaft. Continue 
following the path.

When you reach the incantation shrine, you have to turn south and start 
climbing. You'll soon enter the Snowbrook Foothills. If you turn east once 
you get into the foothills, you can climb up and find the upper part of the 
Frigid Cave.

Take the elevator down and thoroughly search the rooms. There's the elevator 
to the lower half of the cave, which exits to the Valley. There are also two 
secret rooms, opened by switches on the walls. They should be easy to find.

To the west of the Frigid Cave is an entrance to the Snowbrook Grotto. The 
Grotto is a huge cavern filled with mobs and loot, but nothing particularly 
special now. You'll have to come back here during Act III, so skip it for now. 
Continue south into the foothills to reach the area teleporter.

Side quest time again. Return to Aman'lu and go see Eolanda to get Arinth's 
Legendary Staff put back together. If your combat mage doesn't have the Chaos 
Grips, the staff is pretty good. Make sure you have a combat mage of 
sufficient level to use Arinth's Staff, then teleport to Eirulan and on to 
the Lost Valley of the Azunites.

East, and just a bit north from the teleporter, you can find--if you search 
carefully--an elevator among some broken-down walls. Ride it down to Some 
Lost Elven Ruins.

The room in which you arrive has a single door on the north side. In the next 
room, search for a hidden switch on the wall opposite the door (north wall), 
to open a door to the south.

In the newly revealed room, there's another hidden switch on the wall near 
the door. This opens another room to the south. The hidden switch in this new 
room is also near the door. This opens a room to the east. Find the hidden 
switch in this room along the south wall.

You'll now be able to go down some stairs to the east, eventually arriving at 
an Elven Prison, where you find Arinth the Mad. Have your combat mage equip 
Arinth's Staff and use it to break the central pillar in Arinth's cell wall. 
Arinth will flee to the Temple of Istaura & Isteru in the Northern Vai'lutra 
Forest.

Before pursuing Arinth, turn and look at the door going back to the stairs. 
You can click the lamp on the wall to the left and open a secret door halfway 
back up the stairs. Enter the room to get the Mysterious Bucket, part of the 
Mysterious Mystery Quest.

Summon a teleporter back to Eirulan, jump to Aman'lu and thence to the 
Elen'lu Isles. Enter the ruined temple and have it out with Arinth. You don't 
have to use his staff against him, he's vulnerable to normal attacks. He has 
a lot of health, but is only level 25, which, by this point in the game, 
should be cake for you.

In addition to some tasty loot, defeating Arinth gives all your characters 
two bonus skill points. That was worth the trouble, right? Even though the 
quest is closed, head back to Eolanda and tell her you killed Arinth and 
you'll get even more filthy lucre. After a rest and refit, teleport back to 
the Snowbrook Foothills.

Head west, following the path. There's a square tower along the way, inside 
of which is the Chant of Ranged Skill. Eventually the path will turn north 
over a stone bridge and you'll reach Snowbrook Mountain. There's nothing to 
do, really, except fight your way over the mountain, through the Morden lines, 
until you reach the entrance to the Snowbrook Haven Servant's Quarters.

Fight through to the large room with the columns. At the north end of the 
room are two doors. The west door leads to an incantation shrine. Incant the 
Chant of the Dead and then go to the east door. Go up the stairs and through 
the south door. (The north door leads to the Cavern of Frost, to which you 
will return later.) Go in the east room to find Spirit of Aranna #8 and a 
Mysterious Chant.

Head west over the bridge and pick up the Lore book, Vol. 1: The Kings and 
Queens of the Northern Reaches. Continue west through the door and take the 
elevator down to the Living Quarters. Go through the door to the east and 
then either the north or south door to go down into the throne room.

Click the throne, take the display case key that is revealed, then fight off 
the rustguards that come to life around you. Head through the eastern door. 
Two rooms to the east you'll find a teleporter. South from the teleporter is 
an elevator. To the west of the elevator is a series of treasure rooms, one 
of which contains a mimic. Be sure to loot thoroughly before taking the up 
elevator.

The elevator leads up to the Snowbrook Haven Courtyard. Before heading up to 
the ramparts, enter the dining hall next to the stairs. Soldier Kiernan 
inside has a lovely Morden Head on a Pike, which he will be willing to trade 
you for your Statuette of Xeria. Finally, you can make a little progress in 
Lelani's Sorrow.

Go up top and speak to the Commander to begin the next (and final) chapter of 
Act II.


=======================================================
[3.18] Chapter 8: The Siege of Snowbrook Haven, Part II
=======================================================

"The Aegis of Blindness, another piece of the Shield of Azunai, is safely 
locked away within Snowbrook Haven. However, the castle is under heavy siege 
and the commander needs every bit of help she can get. Aid the forces to 
ensure the Aegis remains in safe hands."

Primary Tasks:
* Destroy the brall on top of the Snowbrook Haven Inner keep
* Meet the Commander at the North Gate
* Destroy the Morden enemies that have broken through the North Gate
* Speak to the Commander at the North Gate
* Defeat the dragon
* Report to the Commander
* Retrieve the Aegis of Blindness
* Finish off the dragon
* Escape from Snowbrook Haven
* Travel to the town of Kalrathia and speak with the town lord there

Secondary Quests:
* None

Go down and around behind the dining hall to find the door leading into the 
eastern keep. What follows is from the Dungeon Crawls for Dummies instruction 
manual. Just keep going until you reach the upper ramparts of the keep and 
destroy the monsters hurling rocks. Then take the elevator down to see the 
Commander.

A horde of Morden will break through the gates and you must beat them off. 
Speak to the Commander again. Oh look! A humongous dragon! The Act II boss 
fight has finally arrived.

Send your party back up the elevator to the Inner keep. There's a circular 
platform to the south with a ballista. The only way to kill the dragon is to 
hit it with the ballista. Take your best-armored, highest health character 
and use Wait mode to send him/her solo to the ballista.

You can only hit Talon (the dragon) with the ballista. And you can only do 
this when he's perched atop the castle walls. There are five positions in 
which he lands, like so:

               3


       2                4
               B

1                                5

You can rotate the ballista (B) left and right using the cranks to either 
side of the device. Click the ballista itself to fire. Each time you hit 
Talon, he'll jump into the air and fire-bomb the platform for a bit.

While he's in the air, rotate the ballista to the #3 spot, so you can quickly 
reposition it to any landing spot when Talon alights once more. Once you've 
hit Talon a couple of times, the Morden will start catapulting Durvla up to 
the battlements.

Switch to the Mirror party order and press R to call your party to you to 
help deal with the Durvla; but, don't miss a chance to take a pot shot at the 
dragon while you're at it.

It takes about 8 hits to kill the dragon, so this fight mostly takes a lot of 
patience. Once it's over, head back to the Commander and speak to her.

Ah, well, so much for Snowbrook Haven. Head up the east side of the ramparts 
to the Reliquary door, which you can now unlock with the Commander's key. 
Grab the Aegis of Blindness. Before making good on your escape, remember 
there is always time for some constructive looting. Exit to the northeast.

Yeah...didn't see that one coming...

This time, Talon's a lot tougher. He may have less than a third of his health, 
but you're going to have to chop that off yourself, without a huge piece of 
medieval artillery to help. There's little room to avoid his fiery blasts, 
just don't stand in them when they hit. Keep your ranged characters moving 
side-to-side and keep hitting him with powers.

Once Talon is finally, actually dead, speak to that blasted Azunite Scholar 
who keeps popping up after you could have used his help. Take the southeast 
door to the teleporter room. Grab the Greater Chants of Dexterity, 
Intelligence and Strength before using the teleporter to travel to Kalrathia.

Looks like the Morden got here first, but, amazingly, they aren't hostile. 
Head across the plaza to town hall and talk with the kid who's been thrust 
into the leadership role.

                        ACT III: THE PLAIN OF TEARS
****************************************************************************

===========================================
[3.19] Chapter 1: Restore Kalrathia's Water
===========================================

"The occupying Morden army has disabled the system of aqueducts bringing 
water to Kalrathia. The town's water jars are nearly empty, and the 
townspeople's thirst is sapping their strength and hope. You must find a way 
to restore the Kalrathian water supply."

Primary Tasks:
* Follow the aqueduct to its source
* Defeat the Ganth
* Restore Kalrathia's water
* Return to Lord Kalrathia in the great hall

Secondary Quests:
* Dwarven Song of Ore
* Mark of the Assassin
* The Mage's Apprentice
* Lost Jewels of Soranith
* Sartan's Suspicion
* Mythrilhorn
* The Kalrathian Nexus
* The Spirits of Aranna
* Lelani's Sorrow
* Aman'lu Arena
* Deru's Treasure Hunt

Time to take a breather and make some progress on some side quests. In the 
same room as Lord Kalrathia is Historian Leontia. Speak to her to open the 
Dwarven Song of Ore quest.

Next, go to the potions/magic shop and speak to Enchantress Valeria to 
continue the Mark of the Assassin quest from the previous Act. Speak to Mage 
Boden next to her to open the Mage's Apprentice secondary quest. Head through 
the weapons and armor shop to the tavern and speak to Kevarre the Explorer to 
begin the Lost Jewels of Soranith quest.

Next to Kevarre is Feltan the drunkard, who will open Sartan's personal quest, 
Sartan's Suspicion--if you have Sartan with you. Just beyond is Khartos the 
Strong. Speak to him to continue the quest for the Mythrilhorn. He wants you 
to prove yourself by dueling him. Agree to do so, then hit him a couple of 
times to end the "duel". He'll give you directions on where to reach the rift 
where he will summon a mythrilhorn.

Near the North Gate, speak to Nora the Nature Mage about the Kalrathian Nexus. 
Do those caverns sound familiar? They should. Now exit the North Gate to find 
an incantation shrine. Incant the Chant of the Dead. Head for the southwest 
corner of the battlements to find Spirit of Aranna #14.

Search the rooms along the north wall of Kalrathia for the Lore book: Vol. 16, 
The Legacy of Azunai. You'll also pick up Elves and Elven Culture. Near these 
rooms is Berseba, who will hook you up with the Legendary Mace of Agarrus 
quest.

Go up the steps along the east wall and into a room to the north. You'll find 
Telgrey the Scholar, who will send you questing for those Lore books you've 
been picking up along the way. There are 20, all identified as Lore of Aranna 
books with a volume number. To the west of Telgrey's house is a plank that 
you can use to get over to the North Wall, where you'll find a later link in 
Lelani's Sorrow.

Now that your quest book is full once more, time take care of some of the 
tasks. Teleport to Aman'lu and take the south road out of town. After the 
bridge, turn right into Alar'ithil's house and give him the Morden head on a 
pike in exchange for his bottle of Elven Water.

Go to the Inn and speak to Explorer Tai'esse about the Legendary Mace of 
Agarrus. Teleport to the Eastern Face of Snowbrook Mountain and enter the 
Servant's Quarters. When you reach the point where you turn south to go over 
the crosswalk, go north instead to enter the Cavern of Frost. Head down to 
the center of the cavern, equip the Soul Staff you received from Nora, and 
recite the chant she taught you (Arcesso Arcanum).

Go back to the teleporter and jump to the Snowbrook Foothills. The closest 
entrance to the Snowbrook Grotto is due east, though you have to go a bit 
north and then south to get to it. Inside the grotto, you're looking for a 
set of man-made steps leading down to a pair of locked doors. From the 
entrance nearest the Foothills teleporter, go south, then west and look for 
the stairs right after crossing the small bridge.

Pick up the Chants of Ranged and Magic Skill from in front of the doors, then 
enter the small room and pick up the stone tablet fragment. If you want to 
loot the Grotto, go ahead, there's plenty of swag to be had. Then teleport 
back to Aman'lu and go see Tai'esse again.

Now, use the portal next to the Inn (not the teleporter) to return to the 
Courtyard of the Temple of Xeria. Head for the secret passage you should have 
opened earlier as part of the Spirits of Aranna quest. The Cavern of Earth is 
at the end of the secret passage. Imbue the Soul Staff, then teleport to the 
Western Cliffs of Azunai.

Enter the Azunite Cavern to the south where you obtained the Azunite Artifact. 
The little island leading to the tomb of Agarrus is in the northwest corner 
of the cavern. If you have not previously extended the bridge, look for the 
switch to the south of the island. It's on the north wall of a small ruin 
near the bridge.

Descend into the tomb and have a talk with Guardian Magentus. You'll get 
quite a lengthy treatise on the Agallans and Half-giants. Once the 
conversation is finished, collect your reward. (Yeah, no fighting. You're 
probably quite disappointed.)

From here you can either hoof it to the Lost Valley of the Azunites or use 
the teleporter. There's not much difference in distance. Go to the south end 
of the Valley into the Cavern of the Phoenix and imbue your staff. Return to 
Kalrathia and leave through the North Gate.

Just before you reach the teleporter, look for a ruined tower to your left 
(west). Push the button on the west wall of the ruins to lower the elevator 
and descend into Some Crumbled Ruins. Inside, trade your bottle of Elven 
water for Prospector Gareth's Agallan relic. Behind Gareth is a hidden switch 
that opens a treasure room containing the Greater Chant of Purity.

Go east from the ruined tower to a round tower with a bit of treasure on the 
roof. Continuing east past that tower, you will go down to a lower plateau. 
Keep going east and step into the lake at the end of the plateau. Turns out 
it's just an illusion and you'll be able to go down into a Magical Oasis.

This is the final part of Deru's Treasure Hunt. You'll need her in your party 
to open the chest beyond the door. Pick up the Chant of Health from beside 
the door, get your treasure and end Deru's quest.

Enter the square tower on the south side of the plateau and descend into a 
Mysterious Vault. This is the location of the Lost Jewels of Soranith. Fight 
your way through to the second vault and clear the room.

Great! More light puzzles.

There are five obelisks in the room, each connected by channels like so 
(north orientation):
               _________
              |         |
    __________A____     |_____
   |          |    |          |
   |          |    |____      |
   |          |         |     |
   |          |         |     |
   |     _____B_________C     |
   |    |     |         |     |
   |    |     |____     D_____|
   |    |          |    |
   E____|          |____|

The channels are initially dark, they must be lit. When you click an obelisk, 
all other obelisks connected by an unlit channel start to glow. Click one of 
those obelisks and the channel lights up and the other obelisk becomes active. 
So on and so forth. Once a channel between two obelisks is lit, you can't 
"connect" those two obelisks again. The statue on the south side of the room 
resets the puzzle if you get stuck.

There's probably several solutions to this, but here's one:

D - A - C - D - B - A - E - B - C

Two doors to the south will open. In the next room get Soranith's Silver Ring 
from a treasure chest behind the west door, then go through the south door, 
down the stairs and into a more complicated light puzzle.

This time there are nine obelisks like so (north orientation):

   _____A_______________B     C_____
  |     |               |     |     |
  |     |     __________|     |     |
  |     |    |                |     |
  |     |    |     ___________|     |
  |     |    |    |                 |
  |     |    |    |                 |
  |     D    |____E___________      |
  |     |         |           |     |
  |     |         |           |     |
  |     |         |      _____F_____|
  |     |         |     |     |
  |     |         |     |     |
  |_____G_________|     |     |_____
        |               |           |
        |               |           |
        |_______________H___________I

Again, there are probably several solutions, here is one:

H - F - I - H - G - A - D - G - E - F - C - E - B - A

The door to the south opens, collect a Mysterious Chant (Rando Conjurum Ix) 
and Soranith's Gold Ring. Head back up to the Northern Plain of Tears. As you 
work your way back to the main path, look for a separate downward path going 
north-northeast (to the right of the main path with the teleporter).

Head down this path to find Khartos, who will open a rift and summon a 
mythrilhorn while you bash monster brains. Afterwards, speak to Khartos again 
to send the mythrilhorn to Aman'lu.

Back to the main path, head to the Water Temple. Inside, fight the Ganth, 
which is resistant to fire, lightning and death damage (you know, everything 
your combat mage can dish out). The Ganth also has a weapon with health steal 
ability, so staying out of range of him is your best bet to a quick ending. 
Once the Ganth is dead, head up the stairs to the Temple Courtyard, where a 
cruise ship full of Morden await. This is a much tougher fight than the Ganth, 
and very chaotic. Area-of-effect powers come in quite handy.

Once everything is dead, click the glowing button on the wall to send water 
to Kalrathia. Jump back to town using the nearby teleporter and speak to Lord 
Kalrathia to begin the next quest.


==================================
[3.20] Chapter 2: The Morden Chief
==================================

"The Morden leaders will not be pleased that Kalrathia is no longer thirsty. 
You must travel to the Morden city of Darthrul to head off the attack that 
will surely come when the Morden Chief learns of what has transpired. 
Hopefully, you can distract the Morden long enough for the townspeople to 
organize a rebellion."

Primary Tasks:
* Enter the Morden city of Darthrul
* Speak to the Morden Chief
* Defeat the Morden Chief
* Bring the head of the Morden Chief back to Lord Kalrathia

Secondary Quests:
* Mythrilhorn
* Lost Jewels of Soranith
* Lelani's Sorrow
* The Kalrathian Nexus
* Spirits of Aranna
* Sartan's Suspicion
* Amren's Vision
* The Lore of Aranna
* The Mage's Apprentice
* Finala's Contempt
* The Morden Riders

Secondary questing time again. Go up to the North Wall (follow the plank past 
Telgrey's house) and speak to Nalus. He'll give you harpy feathers in 
exchange for your Agallan relic. Go to the tavern and talk to Kevarre, who 
will give you Soranith's Amulet to complete your set.

Teleport to Aman'lu. Go see the pet seller, who will now sell you a 
mythrilhorn, if you so desire. In the extreme north of Aman'lu, find the 
fletcher Ithir'renne and give her the harpy feathers in exchange for an 
Aman'lu orchid. That ought to cheer Lelani up!

Teleport back to Eirulan, head for Lelani's house next to the pet shop and 
give her the orchid. Lelani's chain letter is finally finished and you get a 
rather large pile of loot. It makes one wonder, if Lelani has that much money, 
why couldn't she at least rent herself a little happiness?

Now your only holdovers from earlier acts are Amren's Vision, Finala's 
Contempt, Spirits of Aranna and the Mark of the Assassin. You'll be taking 
care of the first of those pretty soon. Return to Kalrathia and leave through 
the East Gate.

You'll soon come to a chasm where there are three paths to choose. South 
leads to a dead end, but there's a hidden treasure chest. Look for the lever 
sticking up out of a rock. North is the Kalrathian Nexus. Enter the cavern 
and descend to the center. Equip the Soul Staff and beat on the big, blocky 
seal until it's removed.

Go ahead and run back to town and talk to Nora. She'll give you the Soulstaff 
of the Nexus, which is a good staff for nature mages. Head back through the 
Eastern Plain of Tears, aiming, this time, for the teleporter. As you pass 
the chasm, enter the square tower to pick up the Greater Chant of Mage Health.

Just past the teleporter is Spirit of Aranna #13, there is an incantation 
shrine further along the path. Continuing past the ghost, if you keep on due 
east rather than turn north toward the shrine, you'll enter A Mysterious 
Cavern.

This is a step in Sartan's personal quest, so add him to your party before 
you go any further. Enter the cavern and loot the treasure rooms north and 
south. Knock on the east door and Sartan and Osric have a little sword-to-
heart chat.

If Half-giants want to change the perception they are stupid oafs, they've 
got to stop acting like stupid oafs. So, Sartan is now tasked with freeing 
some prisoners, which will take place later in this chapter. Back to the main 
quest.

West of the incantation shrine is a square tower with the Greater Chant of 
Ranger Health. As you continue north, you'll enter the Ruins of Okaym. As you 
do, another square tower yields the Greater Chant of Fighter Health.

Just north of this tower is the fourth mushroom circle, leading to the Shrine 
of Blindness. Take Amren down, pick up the Lore book: Vol. 20, The Path of 
Blindness. If you've activated the other shrines already, activating this one 
opens a portal in the center.

Go through the portal to another Mysterious Shrine with a big treasure chest. 
Amren opens it to reveal Virtuous Rebellion--a powerful longbow that will 
look nice on your primary ranger. And, of course, lots of other loot. Step 
back through the portal to the Shrine of Blindness and return to the surface.

You now have the last of the Lore of Aranna books, so if you've been 
collecting them diligently, you can complete this quest. The next time you 
are in Kalrathia, pay a visit to Telgrey. Be sure to talk to him again after 
completing the quest. He won't dole out your true reward the first time you 
talk with him. Part of the real reward is the Mysterious Book from the 
Mysterious Mystery Quest.

From Amren's mushroom circle, work your way east toward the next teleporter. 
As the path turns north, you'll pass an entrance to A Large Abandoned Shelter. 
This is a puzzle/treasure room with plenty of loot and XP, but no special 
quest significance.

Take the elevator down and go through either door into the next room. Grab a 
green life stone (familiar?) and go through the door and down the stairs into 
the main "puzzle" room, though what needs be done is not that puzzling. There 
are four lit pillars and four unlit pillars. Each unlit pillar has one of the 
four Azunite symbols on it.

So, you know what to do. Grab one of each color stone and put it on the 
proper pillar. You already have the green stone so you can light the green 
tree column. All you have to do is find the other three color stones.

Take the door on the north side of the light room and follow the passages 
around until you find a golden chalice. Picking up the chalice opens two 
secret doors to the east, allowing you to enter a set of hidden passages. 
Follow these around until you find the purple death stones and pick one up.

This will open a door back into the light room, so place your purple stone on 
the purple tree column and head through the south door. You'll quickly come 
to some caverns that run east and west. Go east first, which soon dead-ends, 
but contains a pile of yellow sight stones.

Go back west and follow the caverns to some more man-made rooms and follow 
these until you find the red blindness stones. Picking one up opens a 
shortcut back into the room of light.

Place your stones and a secret door opens to the main treasure room to the 
east. Collect your reward, which includes the Greater Chants of Mage and 
Ranger Power.

Back to the surface, there's a tower just ahead guarded by a nature mage 
sanctuary door and the Ruins of Okaym teleporter is just to the west of the 
tower. After the teleporter, the path turns north, but keep going west and 
climb the hill to find the entrance to the Morden Arsenal that is part of 
Sartan's quest.

With Sartan in your party, enter the Arsenal. From the first room, take the 
north door for a little treasure, including a secret room. Then take the 
south door and go west to a larger room. The south door here leads to an 
empty jail cell guarded by a horde of Morden.

The main path lies west, to a large jail room. Note the spiked, metal 
canisters in front of the cells. Hit them with a ranged weapon or spell to 
blow them up and blow open the doors of the cells. Remember this technique, 
you will use it again.

Search the cells for a large treasure chest (Sartan has to open it). Teleport 
to the Eastern Plain of Tears and run to the Mysterious Cavern. Talk to 
Orayne to close Sartan's quest. Then teleport back to the Ruins of Okaym.

Follow the path north to the main gate of Darthrul. Right before you reach 
the bridge to the gate, turn left (west) and go around the guard tower and 
down into the dry canal. Follow the canal west and then up some stairs and 
then down into Some Ancient Ruins.

Oh boy! Another light puzzle!

The statue on the north side of the room is missing its mirror; the golden 
one Mage Boden gave you fits quite nicely and starts the beam of light. There 
are two doors, to the north and west, and you must shine the light on each to 
open it. There are 17 statues in all, scattered about the room.

The north door is simple, direct the light south one statue, west one statue, 
south one statue, east one statue and then north to unlock the door.

                  Door
                    |
                    |  1
                    |  |
         3-------------2
         |          |
         |          |
         |          |
         |          |
         |          |
         |          |
         4----------5

The west door is a bit more complicated.

 
Direct the light all the way to the south end of the room, to the fourth 
statue. **NOTE** You will have to turn statues out of the way to let the 
light pass. Send the light east one statue, then north one statue, then west 
three statues. Now direct the beam south one statue, east two statues, south 
one statue then west and move all the intervening statues out of the way 
until the light hits the west door.

                         1

                         2---3

X = Statues that must be turned out of the way to let the light beam pass.

Beyond the west door is a treasure room. Behind the north door is Mage 
Boden's apprentice, Darek. Turns out Boden is a nasty guy.

Gee, what a surprise.

Grab the Greater Chant of Casting and Greater Chant of Fighter Power and head 
back to the main gate into Darthrul. Talk to the gate guard to be allowed 
entrance.

You didn't really think it was going to be that easy, did you?

Well, you've got a whole city to chunk, might as well get started. The first 
Morden you'll meet in the city is the Patrol Leader from back in Kalrathia. 
He already has a bone to pick with you, so give him what he deserves. He'll 
drop a Key to the District of the Sword.

Ah! So that's how it works. There are five districts: Sword, Crossbow, Lance, 
Shield and Chief. You'll have to slaughter your way through each one to get 
the key to the next. You can also continue Finala's Contempt while in 
Darthrul, and receive and complete The Morden Riders side quest.

Lots to do. Lots to do.

In the main square you'll see a ghost, but you can't talk to it until you 
unlock the District of the Crossbow and its incantation shrine. The main 
square also has the city's teleporter, so take a refit break in Aman'lu 
before you begin depopulating Darthrul. While back in town, go ahead and 
confront Boden and kill him, then speak to Darek who mysteriously appears to 
wrap up The Mage's Apprentice quest.

Back in Darthrul, with Finala in your party, head east from the main square 
toward the white star on your map. Finala will find a secret door that leads 
to the Durvla hatchery. Clear the joint. When you reach the end, there are 
three (count 'em, 3) mini-bosses. In the corner is a cage with a treasure 
chest. Note the spiked ball--you have to blow the cage open.

Let Finala loot the chest to earn a Morden Wrench, which, she supposes, could 
be used to fix an elevator somewhere. You won't find that elevator in 
Darthrul, so you can send Finala back to the Inn now if she isn't normally a 
member of your party.

You have the key to the District of the Sword, which is located in the 
northeast quadrant of the city. Enter and kill the City Lieutenant for the 
key to the District of the Crossbow.

That district is the southwest quadrant. Once again, enter and kill the City 
Lieutenant, who drops the key to the District of the Lance. Note the supply 
vault with a door you cannot open. Use the incantation shrine to talk to the 
ghost in the town square; this is Spirit of Aranna #16.

The District of the Lance is in the northwest and the City Lieutenant drops 
the key to the District of the Chief. Aha! What about the District of the 
Shield? Search the small rooms along the north side of the district for a 
hidden switch that lowers you to a cellar. There's another Lieutenant down 
here with the key to the District of the Shield.

The District of the Shield is to the southeast. Enter it and clear it out. 
There's a room along the west side with a mimic, so be careful opening chests. 
Along the south side of the district is a pit. Look for a hidden switch on 
the west wall that lowers an elevator and allows you entrance to the eastern 
end of the dry canal.

Head east and climb up to an area outside the city walls. Fight your way to 
the eastern end of this area and talk to the Morden riders Nordax and Nellioc. 
This is, probably, the most humorous conversation in the entire game. Play 
along with these guys. Finally, you will discover they are deserters in need 
of supplies. Agree to help them to open the Morden Riders quest.

Head back to the city and raid the supply vaults in the Districts of the 
Crossbow, Lance and Shield. This gives you the supplies you need for the 
Riders, so return to them. Rather than give you a reward directly, their pet 
Klask bashes open the east wall, giving you access to an Ancient Vault. Get 
your reward from there; it includes the Greater Chant of Fortification.

Return to Darthrul and enter the District of the Chief to the north. Fight 
your way to the Chief, speak to him, then kill him. Return to Kalrathia and 
talk to Lord Kalrathia to start Chapter 3.


==========================================
[3.21] Chapter 3: The Kalrathian Rebellion
==========================================

"Your victory within the Morden city of Darthrul has inspired the townspeople 
of Kalrathia to take up arms against the Morden occupiers. You must help 
Kalrathia overthrow the Morden oppressors."

Primary Tasks:
* Defeat all the Morden in the town of Kalrathia
* Report to Tehruth

Secondary Quests:
* None

Well, this is pretty simple. You just wiped out a whole city of Morden, now 
all you have to do is clear them out of Kalrathia. There are 30 Morden, and 
the game will count them down for you. Zoom in on your map to find the little 
red dots, and don't forget about the North Wall, where there are about six 
Morden. Once they are all dead (you'll get a task entry in your Quest log), 
return to the great hall and speak to Tehruth.


======================================
[3.22] Chapter 4: The Mines of Kaderak
======================================

"Now that you have helped the Kalrathian rebellion defeat the occupying 
Morden army, you must turn your will on acquiring the Aegis of Life, the 
final piece of Azunai's Shield -- the very fragment you helped Valdis acquire 
during the Siege of Greilyn Beach. With the majority of Valdis' forces 
committed to his campaign on Snowbrook Haven, there are only the Dark Wizards 
to stand in your way. And that means you must gain entrance to the Mines of 
Kaderak, an ancient network of caverns riddled with ley lines. This is the 
source of Valdis' supply of shards, and the area is heavily mined for this 
purpose."

Primary Tasks:
* Travel to the Desert of Kaderak
* Destroy the first protective statue
* Destroy the second protective statue
* Destroy the third protective statue
* Destroy the fourth protective statue
* Enter the Mines of Kaderak

Secondary Quests:
* Finala's Contempt

Lord Kalrathia gives you the Aegis of Sight and tells you where to go look 
for the Aegis of Life--you know, the one Valdis stole at the beginning of the 
game. Tehruth gives you a teleporter activation stone that allows you to 
teleport to the desert near the Mines of Kaderak.

Refit your party and teleport to the Southern Desert of Kaderak. You'll soon 
arrive at a large plateau with a stone fort in the center guarding the 
entrance to the mines. In order to gain entrance to the mines you have to 
destroy the four statues maintaining a mystical shield. They are easy enough 
to destroy, though the numerous mobs surrounding them may prove a bit more 
difficult.

There are three paths off the plateau. The east path leads to a dead end with 
nothing but some mobs to fight. The west path leads to some ruins on two 
levels. Search the corners of the first, upper, set of ruins for the Greater 
Chant of Melee Awareness. Search the corners of the second, lower, set of 
ruins for the Greater Chant of Ranged Awareness. Both chants are hard to see. 
At the extreme western edge of the plateau, find the rock with a lever on it 
to reveal a hidden chest.

From the Mines entrance, take the north path and you'll eventually find an 
unmarked teleporter and a broken elevator. Use the teleporter to add Finala 
to your party, if necessary, and have her fix the elevator and take it down 
to a Large Morden Intelligence Camp. Clear out the camp and let Finala loot 
the treasure chest to end her quest.

Use the teleporter outside to jump back to the Southern Desert, break the 
statues and enter the Mines of Kaderak. When you reach the bottom of the 
stairs, you'll see a long cutscene showing the miners in action...


===============================================
[3.23] Chapter 5: The Mines of Kaderak, Part II
===============================================

"You have entered the Mines of Kaderak where the Dark Wizards live and where 
the evil crystal shards that produce the Shard Souls are mined. You must 
destroy the giant shard clusters and locate the Dark Wizards."

Primary Tasks:
* Destroy the giant shard cluster
* Find the Dark Wizards
* Destroy the Dark Wizards
* Recover the Aegis of Life
* Return to Lord Kalrathia with the Aegis of Life

Secondary Quests:
* Mark of the Assassin
* Dwarven Song of Ore
* Vix's Vengeance
* Spirits of Aranna

Your primary job is to roll the cart of explosives into the shard. Of course, 
there are a number of side quests to complete while you're at it. Beware of 
all the red barrels around the mines. They're explosive. Send a bow/crossbow 
ranger, solo, ahead to shoot at them. Do NOT attempt to fight anywhere near 
them.

Your first order of business is to cross the bridge and head up the stairs. 
At the top, enter the first door and clear the room. Look for the lever along 
the back wall to open a secret room. You'll find the Dwarven Mythril Ring in 
the gold chest. Clear out the rest of the rooms on the upper level, then go 
back down to the "main floor".

Head east and cross the next bridge. Pull the lever to move the mine cart. 
Continue east, past the teleporter--Upper Mines of Kaderak (West)--and over 
the bridge. Pull the next lever. (The side rooms here all contain little bits 
of loot, nothing exciting yet.) East again, over the bridge and pull the 
third lever.

The side room here has a health shrine, and the next one along the path has a 
gold chest with the Silver stanza of the Dwarven Song of Ore. East some more, 
over the bridge, pull the lever, through the door and pull the fifth lever.

Go up the stairs. There are a couple of treasure rooms up here, one of which 
contains the Greater Chant of Magic Awareness. Go down the stairs and across 
the bridge to the second teleporter--Upper Mines of Kaderak (East).

Pull the lever next to the teleporter and head up the stairs. Through the 
doors, head up the stairs to your left (west) and you'll find Spririt of 
Aranna #15 and a gold chest with the Iron stanza of the Dwarven Song of Ore. 
There's an incantation shrine across the flying bridge to the east.

Go back down and follow the main path east. After crossing the bridge, pull 
the next two levers and the mine cart finally runs into the large shard and 
everything goes boom. Pass through to the area with the partial bridge, which 
has an elevator at the end.

To the right (south) is a set of three rooms. Go into the west room and pull 
the lever to reveal a hidden room with a gold chest that contains the Gold 
stanza of the Dwarven Song of Ore. To the east of the bridge is a small area 
with some loot. Once you've cleared all the rooms, ride the elevator down, 
then climb the ramps at the north end and enter the Lower Mines.

When you reach the first large open area, there are paths to the north and 
east. The path to the east leads to Vix's personal quest, so add him to your 
party, if necessary, and go east. Vix will break through the door and you'll 
enter a series of mining tunnels and caverns.

The objective is simple: destroy three shards by rolling mine carts into them. 
At each mine cart, pull a lever to re-orient the tracks, then pull another 
lever to send the cart on its way. There are a lot of mobs to kill, lots of 
loot to be gained and several side areas that deserve exploration, though 
they don't contain anything special. Don't forget the main treasure chest 
after the last shard is destroyed.

Head back to the Lower Mines and continue north until you reach the 
teleporter. Go south from the teleporter to find a treasure chest with the 
lost Mythril stanza of the Dwarven Song of Ore. Return to Kalrathia and speak 
to Historian Leontia and receive your reward, which will include both the 
Chant of Prosperity and the Greater Chant of Prosperity.

(If you had previously gone to see Leontia after finding the first three 
stanzas, you can still go back and give her the Mythril stanza and get the 
additional rewards.)

While you're in town, go see enchantress Valeria, who will turn your Dwarven 
Mythril Ring into the Dwarven Mythril Ring of Sight. Equip the ring and go to 
the room behind the Innkeeper. Talk to Merchant Kendril, and Luun, the 
assassin, will appear and attack. Kill him and take his Deathblades, which 
are a nice set for your dual-wielder. Talk to Kendril again to get a little 
extra reward.

That should close out every secondary quest in your logs except the Spirits 
of Aranna. So, main questing time! Teleport back to the Lower Mines and head 
east. A short bit of hack-n-slash later, you reach the elevator that takes 
you to another elevator that takes you to your boss fight against the Dark 
Wizards.

These guys are more powerful versions of the one you faced when rescuing 
Evangeline--and there are three of them. Make sure you have a Nature Mage 
with the Resurrection spell or lots of Resurrection scrolls available.

Tactics are roughly the same. Take out the crystals that defend the wizards, 
then unload on them with powers. When you see circles (of lightning, death or 
fire) surrounding your characters, run! Concentrate on one wizard at a time. 
Fortunately, these guys don't summon anything, and they don't do a lot to 
help each other out.

Stick to one like glue until he's toast, then move on to the next one. Keep 
an eye out for those circles of doom at your feet and be patient. They are 
susceptible to curses, so having a combat mage with a decent curse or two 
will be helpful. And you can have your nature mage cast Spirit Embrace to 
make your party immune to the wizards' curses.

When all three are dead, take the Aegis of Life and return to the Lower Mines 
and teleport back to town. Lord Kalrathia is ill and in bed in his room on 
the west side of the great hall. Speak to him to learn how, now that you have 
the four pieces, you can reforge the Shield of Azunai.


===================================
[3.24] Chapter 6: The Agallan Trial
===================================

"Now that you have all four fragments of Azunai's legendary shield, you must 
make your way to the fabled Agallan Giants to persuade them to reforge the 
Shield. Lord Kalrathia believes that they can be reached if you are able to 
get through an ancient chamber beneath the town known as the Agallan Trial."

Primary Tasks:
* Speak to Advisor Kynos
* Defeat Advisor Kynos
* Take the Kalrathian Crystal to the fountain in the center of the town of
  Kalrathia
* Enter the ancient chamber underneath the town of Kalrathia
* Speak to the Azunite Ancestor
* Restore water to the western waterway
* Restore water to the northern waterway
* Restore water to the southern waterway
* Restore water to the eastern waterway
* Go through the portal to the Agallan Peaks

Secondary Quests:
* Spirits of Aranna

Your first task is to speak to Advisor Kynos, who no one in their right mind 
would like. Fortunately, you get to kill him. You'll get the Kalrathian 
Crystal that unlocks the Agallan Trial under the city. You also get Kynos' 
house key; he lives in the north section of town if you want to help yourself 
to his things. He won't be needing them any longer.

**NOTE**
From this point, it is a long time until you see your next teleporter--about 
a quarter of the way through Chapter 8. You can use the town portal spell 
(Summon Teleporter), but those don't last through a reload. So don't start 
this next section unless you have some time to play. If you quit any time 
before the next teleporter, you're going to have a long, long trek in front 
of you.

Use the crystal on the glowing corner of the fountain, then press any of the 
buttons to ride down into the Agallan Trial area. Down the steps you go until 
you reach a large room and get a cutscene with your instructions. Talk to the 
Azunite Ancestor, then head through the west door.

Down more stairs...and more...and some more. When you finally hit bottom, go 
down into the water trough and pull the lever to open the sluice gate. Then 
turn the valve to start the water in the western waterway. Go through the 
broken wall into a tunnel.

The tunnel soon branches north and south. You can go either way, but, since 
the Quest Log lists the northern waterway next, head north. When you get back 
into the man-made section, look for a Mysterious Chant in the corner.

Note the three large stone controllers at the edge of the platform. These 
control floodgate doors down below. You have to activate them in various 
combinations to enable your party to get through to unblock the waterway and 
turn on the water. Each of the floodgate controllers has a center "button" 
that is either up or down.

The easiest thing to do is to enter Wait mode and send one character down and 
keep the others next to the controllers. It's easier to move one character 
around in the small rooms.

For the northern puzzle, set the controllers so the Center controller button 
is down and the other two are up. Go down into the waterway, open the gate 
and turn on the water. Go into the northwest room and around to the northeast 
room. Hit the switch in here so it is up and open the way to the south room. 
Push the switch in the south room down to open the way to the east platform.

On the platform, push the button on the east wall to open part of a shortcut 
to the southern/eastern waterway. Then go to the south end of the platform, 
enter the waterway and open the gate. This is actually for the eastern 
waterway, but might as well do it now.

Then go back into the northern waterway and open the second gate. The water 
should be running freely now. Go up onto the northern platform, reform your 
party (if you went solo), enter the room to the west and push the button on 
the wall to open a door back to the west waterway. Enter the tunnel and go 
south.

Along the way you'll encounter Spirit of Aranna #17. The incantation shrine 
is just to the east of the ghost. When you reach the southern waterway, open 
two gates and then turn on the water.

Go up on the platform and push each controller down, enter Wait mode and send 
your PC down into the waterway and open the gate. Enter the southeast corner 
room and thence into the southwest corner. Set this switch down and exit the 
room to open the last two gates to let the water run through.

Go back into the southwestern corner room and set the switch up to open the 
door north. Push this next switch down to open the north door and go through 
and open the gate. Return to the northwest room.

Here's where it get's much easier to do this in Wait mode. You have to turn 
the two switches up on the platform to the up position. This opens the way to 
get from the northwest room over to the northeast section of the waterway and 
open the last two gates and turn on the water. So you just change to another 
character, hit the two switches on the platform and you're home free.

If you haven't used the solo trick, here's what you have to do. Hit the 
switch in the northwest room to get to the southwest room. Hit the switch to 
open the door into the southern waterway. Go up to the platform and hit both 
switches. Go back to the southwest room, hit the switch, enter the northwest 
room and hit the switch and now you can get through.

For the record, to the north of the eastern water valve is a platform with a 
mana shrine (and a Mysterious Chant behind the shrine). At the west end of 
this platform is the button on the wall that opens the shortcut to the north 
platform, which you'll need to use if you did not previously open that last 
east gate.

To quickly get back to the stairs leading up, return through the south 
waterway and enter a room to the north and push the button on the wall to 
open a shortcut to the western waterway. Head up the stairs, through the big 
door, collect your loot and go through the portal.


====================================
[3.25] Chapter 7: The Agallan Giants
====================================

"The Shield of Azunai must be reforged if Valdis is to be defeated. The only 
beings who have the power to do this are the Agallan Giants, if they truly 
exist."

Primary Tasks:
* Investigate the Agallan Peaks
* Use the portal to travel to Zaramoth's Horns

Secondary Quests:
* None

Nothing to do here but go talk to the giants. You can pick up a book, "The 
Meaning of the Obelisks" in the first long hall. After your chat, step 
through the new portal and get ready to start fighting again...


==================================
[3.26] Chapter 8: Zaramoth's Horns
==================================

"Valdis and his Archmage are leading the armies from within Zaramoth's Horns, 
one of the most secure fortresses built by the followers of Zaramoth before 
the great cataclysm. If the Agallans are correct, you should find Valdis and 
his Archmage at the top of the mountain."

Primary Tasks:
* Ascend to the top of the mountain
* Defeat the Archmage

Secondary Quests:
* Spirits of Aranna

Enter the hall to the east and fight your way to an elevator. You may note 
some Eyes of Zaramoth statues scattered about. Hitting them causes them to 
shoot a highly damaging beam of light. This technique is not important now, 
but will be later.

The elevator takes you down into a prison, where you quickly come to another 
elevator that takes you up to a platform with three other elevators. The 
Agallan Obelisk in the center of the platform grants 30 seconds of 
invulneratiblity when used. Your party must be close by to be affected, so 
Regroup around the obelisk before clicking.

The southwest elevator leads to a treasure room with the Chant of Power. The 
northeast elevator leads to ranged and melee sanctuary doors and an 
incantation shrine where you can use your shiny new Chant. The northwest 
elevator takes you to nature and combat mage sanctuary doors and another 
elevator that puts you back on the main path, right at the Lower Zaramoth's 
Horns teleporter.

Yay!

You can now quit and take a potty break. When you're ready to continue, head 
north from the teleporter. After the long bridge is a room with three doors. 
North and west are small treasure rooms. Go east and keep fighting your way 
until you get outside. Just past the bridge, to the south, is the final 
Spirit of Aranna. An incantation shrine is just a little way to the west.

In this area there's a secret room with a mimic in the southeast. Look for 
the lever on the back side of a nearby column. There's another secret room to 
the south side of the incantation platform shrine, find the button on the 
wall and collect the Chant of Chaotic Skill inside.

That's it. There are no more side areas. No more side quests. Take the 
southern door and begin a long (and possibly arduous) slaughterfest until you 
reach the archmage. There's a teleporter right before you enter the 
Archmage's Chamber. This is the last teleporter in the game. If you quit the 
game, or your entire party dies, after this point, you will have to return 
here and do everything again (except for the Archmage fight).

The archmage fight takes place on a platform surrounded by obelisks. You can 
use the obelisks yourself, but the archmage uses them too and therein lies 
the problem. On his own, the archmage is not that difficult. He's got 90,000 
health, but he won't do much damage to your party.

The missiles he summons out of the obelisks are something else entirely. 
Every so often, the archmage will "convert" an obelisk to his own use and it 
will start firing out missiles. These missiles are instant death for any 
character they touch. They move slowly, so you can dodge them, but if the 
archmage converts a lot of obelisks, you're in big trouble.

Make sure you have a nature mage with a resurrection spell and some rez 
scrolls for the other characters in case the nature mage bites the dust. You 
can "redeem" an obelisk the archmage has converted by attacking the obelisk. 
However, in the long run, you are better off simply unloading every power in 
your book on the archmage himself.

This is likely to be the longest, most difficult battle yet. Once he's 
defeated, the final battle is waiting at the top of the stairs.


==================================
[3.27] Chapter 9: The Final Ascent
==================================

"It has been a long and challenging journey and you can honestly say you are 
no longer the same person as you were when you fought for Valdis as a 
mercenary. Ever since you were taken prisoner by the Dryads of Eirulan, the 
course of your life has brought you ever closer to this moment. You have 
achieved the impossible -- found and re-united the fragments of the legendary 
Shield of Azunai and convinced the Agallan Giants to reforge it using 
Drevin's medallion as a centerpiece. You now have the power to defeat Valdis 
and free Aranna from his tyranny if you are ready to face the challenge."

Primary Tasks:
* Locate the Temple of Valdis
* Destroy Valdis
* Go through the portal

But wait! First you have to battle through another horde of minions. At this 
point, you're probably wondering, "What's the point?" Persevere, the end is 
near.

But not that near. You've got a lot of stairs to climb, and every inch is 
contested--many times by groups of mini-bosses. If you've been following this 
guide and done every sidequest, you're probably running four to five levels 
above everything you encounter, so this is mostly tedious.

On the other hand, if you're hovering around level 40, you're in for a long 
night. You would be better served, before attempting this ascent, going back 
to town and finding some good respawn areas to gain a few levels. Make sure 
you've wrapped up all the secondary quests. Do whatever needs be done to get 
yourself a few more levels and some additional gear.

You'll need it.

**NOTE** It cannot be stressed enough that if you quit or die here, you have 
to make this ascent again and *all* the mobs respawn.

It ain't pretty. Don't die and don't quit.

When you finally reach the Temple of Valdis, it is remarkably (and 
comfortingly clear). Open a town portal and hie thee back to Kalrathia for a 
refit. Make sure you have rez scrolls for everybody. Lots of potions. Etc.

Continue into the temple until you meet Valdis. Don't try to attack him, he's 
invulnerable. The only way to hurt him is to lure him in front of one of the 
Eyes of Zaramoth placed on the edges of the room, then beat on the eye to 
open it (and they don't have great range). Conversely, Valdis can kill you 
quite easily. No matter how well you've outfitted your party, one sword combo 
from Valdis and they all turn into grave markers.

The best way to handle Valdis is to get beyond an Eye in a straight line from 
Valdis, so that he is forced to walk directly past the Eye you're near. Time 
it so your ranger starts attacking the Eye when Valdis is about three to four 
steps away (or two or five, depending on the damage your ranger can do). If 
you time it right, Valdis will get zapped before he even gets close enough to 
you to start swinging.

 
For example:

      Eye


             Valdis


             X - start shooting the Eye when Valdis is here


      Eye


             You

It will take patience and practice, but once perfected, you can take Valdis 
out pretty easily. You have to hit him three times to advance to the next 
stage of the fight. After the first hit, Valids summons a horde of Qatall 
Minions. Take them out while staying away from Valdis, then re-commence the 
luring/zapping project.

After the third hit, you get the Fantasy RPG Plot Twists for Idiots cutscene 
and the fight against Valdis takes on a more traditional flavor. Valdis is 
now, essentially, just another boss character. He's got 90,000 health and he 
can regenerate, so you don't want to leave him alone for a long time.

Don't worry about falling into the lava, if your characters are reasonably 
well-equipped, you won't get hurt (much). Just don't go swimming in it. Lay 
into Valdis with everything you've got.

Valdis has four main attacks:

1) A shockwave that will throw your characters back. Not a huge problem, even 
if you fall in the lava. However, if your party is melee-heavy, it will push 
the fighters off Valdis for a few seconds, during which he can regenerate. 
Don't worry about the shockwave and just keep at him

2) He will bring rocks crashing down. This is (or should be) a non-issue. A 
few rocks shouldn't hurt you, but, if they're giving you fits, just watch for 
the enlarging shadows and run away.

3) A gigantic fireball. This one's dangerous. Fortunately, Valdis starts to 
glow yellow before releasing it, and he won't change his orientation once he 
starts the spell. So, as soon as Valdis begins to glow yellow, run behind him 
and attack his back while he blasts empty air with pretty lights.

4) More a defensive maneuver than an attack, Valdis will clone himself, 
giving himself time to regenerate while you attack a clone. However, the 
clones don't react to attacks--they don't physically react and they don't 
make any noise. So if you hit a Valdis and it doesn't do anything, go attack 
another one.

Once you take off one-third of his health, he summons a horde of Qatall 
Minions. By this point, Qatall Minions should be little more trouble than 
flies. Don't worry about them and concentrate on Valdis.

When Valdis reaches 0 health, he revives and summons a shield around himself. 
(So, why didn't he do this earlier?) You can't penetrate the shield, but the 
great big Eye of Zaramoth that was just revealed, can. This one's easy 
because Valdis doesn't have his sword. Stand in front of the eye, wait for 
Valdis to get close, then whack it. Brutal Strike or Take Aim (or some other 
high-damage, single strike power) works very well.

After the cutscenes you can return to Kalrathia and finish up whatever you've 
left hanging. This would be a good time to do The Mysterious Mystery Quest. 
You can also arrange your companions and equipment for playing at the next 
difficulty level. One thing you might want to do now is visit a store and buy 
some 0-level bows, swords and spells. If you want to do a little multi-
classing at the higher difficulty levels, you won't be able to buy any 0-
level gear to get you started. So buy it now and stick it in your Storage 
Vault or on a pet at the Inn.


===================================
[3.28] Veteran and Elite Difficulty
===================================

Once you have completed Act III, Chapter 9 and saved your game, you can begin 
a new game at a higher difficulty level. Exit to the main menu, choose Single 
Player, choose the hero who has completed the game and click Next. Choose 
your difficulty level (Veteran after finishing Mercenary, Elite after 
finishing Veteran).

You start in the Dryad prison cell--you don't play Act I, Chapter 1 again. 
You have all your equipment and all your party with you in the cell. Any pets 
or henchmen disbanded to the Inn are still in your party inventory. Anything 
placed in your Storage Vault is still there.

Your Quest Log, Quest Items, Maps and Books inventories are empty and have to 
be re-filled. Any Chants discovered in the previous diffculty are still 
available and can be used normally. This means you can, for example, start 
the Spirits of Aranna quest immediately by talking with the ghost in the 
Hak'u caves.

The only real difference in Vet and Elite is the strength of the mobs and the 
level of the gear you collect. Everything else plays the same. If you want to 
hire the new Vet/Elite versions of your henchmen rather than use the ones you 
carried over, you have to Release the old henchmen. See Party-a-go-go to find 
out how to release henchmen.

This is a rundown of each quest, by Act, and how to complete it. Any 
information not related to a specific quest will not be included. If you are 
having trouble with combat, finding hidden areas or deciding what to do next, 
see Section 3: Chapter Walkthrough. Quests are listed in the following order: 
first all primary (chapter) quests from each act are listed, then all 
secondary quests are listed in the order in which they appear in your journal.


===========================
[4.1] Act I: Primary Quests
===========================

Chapter 1: The Siege of Greilyn Beach
-------------------------------------

* Reinforce the troops on the other side of the tunnel

Follow your orders to complete the primary tasks in this quest.


Chapter 2: Prisoner of War
--------------------------
* Go to the merchant shops and ask for the basket of sharpening stones
* Bring the sharpening stones to the Dryad outpost

Talk to the guard outside your cell to initiate the quest. Go to the 
merchant's area of Eirulan and speak to Telinu to get the sharpening stones. 
Leave by the North Gate and follow the path northeast to the Dryad outpost. 
Kill the Morden and free the Dryad prisoners to complete the quest.


Chapter 3: The Morden Towers

* Find and burn down the second Morden tower.
* Find and burn down the third Morden tower.
* Find and burn down the fourth Morden tower.
* Return to Warden Celia in the Eirulan prisoner's terrace.
* Speak with Taar in the Eirulan great hall.

From the Dryad outpost, follow the path as it continues north, then turns 
west, then south, finding each tower along the way. Once you defeat the 
Morden around a tower, right-click the nearby cage to break it, then left-
click the wreckage to produce a cage fragment. Pick up the fragment, equip it, 
then left-click the nearby campfire and then left-click the tower to blow it 
up. After all four towers are destroyed, advance a little further on the path 
to reach the Western Greilyn Jungle teleporter. Return to Eirulan and speak 
to Warden Celia in the jail area. Then go to the great hall and speak to Taar.


Chapter 4: The Plague
---------------------
* Find the ancient Elven shrine.
* Locate the Elven fountain.
* Fill the empty vial with water from the Elven fountain.
* Report back to Taar in the Eirulan great hall.

After finishing the Morden towers quest, teleport back to the Western Greilyn 
Jungle and continue following the path until you reach the shrine. Invade the 
shrine, following the main path, until you reach the fountain on level 2. 
Left-click the fountain to fill your empty vial with water, then use the 
teleporter in the east room to return to Eirulan. Report to Taar in the great 
hall to finish the quest.

Chapter 5: The Dryad Exile Colony
---------------------------------
* Find the Dryad Exile Colony
* Save the old man

From the South Gate of Eirulan, follow the main path, killing monsters as you 
go. You will eventually reach the Dryad Exile Colony, where plagued Dryads 
are beating up on an old man.

**GLITCH WARNING**

SAVE YOUR GAME!

There's a glitch just ahead; so don't save over your game until you complete 
this chapter. Continue to the Dryad camp. Inside, an old man is being 
attacked by plagued Dryads. Wait a moment while they beat up on him a bit--
this should trigger his scripts so you can complete the quest. Kill the 
plagued Dryads, then talk to the old man, who turns out to be an Azunite 
scholar who will fill you in on what Valdis is up to (assuming you haven't 
already figured it out).

Sometimes the scholar's scripts won't work and he'll keep calling for help 
even after you've killed all the Dryads. If that happens to you, reload and 
try again.


Chapter 6: Leaving Greilyn Isle
-------------------------------
* Locate the Kithraya Caverns
* Look for survivors from Vix's squad
* Investigate Eastern Greilyn Beach
* Destroy the shard
* Use the portal to leave Greilyn Isle
* Talk to Captain Suzor

From the Dryad Exile Colony, take the east path and continue following it 
until you reach the Kithraya Caverns. You'll run into Vix along the way. If 
you accept his offer of help, make sure you don't ESC from his conversation 
or the door to continue won't open.

Slaughter your way through the upper and lower Kithraya Caverns until you 
reach Eastern Greilyn Beach. Kill the wraiths and destroy the shard before 
continuing down to the beach. Talk to the Azunite Scholar to open the portal,

through to a light puzzle.

The statue in the southeast is missing its mirror, you can use the silver one 
you got from the shrine. Starting with the mirrorless statue, turn the 
statues in the numerical order listed below so the light is shining in the

to the Western Cliffs of Azunai. Follow the long and winding road until you 
reach Windstone Fortress. Head north until you get to the main entrance, 
which is locked.

Go east, through the gatehouse, and follow it around to enter Windstone 
Fortress proper. Go north and talk to Captain Dathry. Take the east hall near 
the teleporter to enter the Outer Vault.

Place a yellow stone in the yellow socket, then two green stones in the two 
green sockets. Kill Lieutenant Namyek for the Inner Vault key, then place two 
red stones in the red sockets to open the door leading to the Inner Vault.

Enter the Inner Vault and click the blue flame to activate your Azunite

secret room on the west side. Once all the zombies are re-dead, click the 
glowing statue to destroy all the zombies in the Fortress.

Go through to the next room and take the east door to find the teleporter. 
Head north from the teleporter to enter the Temple Courtyard. Defeat the big 
snake by killing the middle head, Vitalus, first. Destroy the shard, talk to

(conversation option #3). Your reward is the suit of armor she makes.


#2: Lumilla's Salve
-------------------
* Intended level: 3
* Collect four nettle clusters and give them to enchantress Lumilla

Talk to Lumilla, the enchantress, in the merchant's area of Eirulan. Find (or,

* Bring Nalus something ancient and interesting he can study
* Bring Ithir'renne the fletcher a new material to use for crafting arrows
* Bring Lelani a keepsake from Aman'lu

Despite the low level, this quest takes until Act III to complete. It's a 
simple trading quest. Start by talking to Lelani, who lives in the house next 
to the pet shop in Eirulan. Take the doll she gives you and find Fenella in a 
house near the Falls (reach the Falls from a lift beside the Inn). Fenella 
will give you a flask of Elven ale.

When you arrive at the Azunite Desert camp (beginning of Act I, Chapter 7), 
enter the house and talk to soldier Balamar. He's dying of thirst and, when 
he sees your Elven Ale, he'll actually break down in tears.

Isn't that sweet?

Give him the Ale and he'll give you some skath cat ribs. Take the ribs to 
soldier Jordhan on the second floor of the Eirulan Inn. He'll give you a 
statuette of Xeria in return. When you reach Snowbrook Haven's Courtyard at 
the end of Act II, Chapter 7, you can find Soldier Kiernan in the dining hall.

In exchange for your statuette of Xeria, he'll give you a tasty Morden head 
on a pike. Take the Morden head to Alar'ithil, who lives just southwest of 
the south bridge leaving Aman'lu. He'll give you some Elven water for your 
head. Take the Elven Water to Prospector Gareth, who resides in the bottom of 
a ruined tower just beyond the North Gate of Kalrathia (Act III, Chapter 1).

Gareth will give you an Agallan relic, which goes to the half-giant Nalus, 
who is hanging out on the North Wall of Kalrathia. Take the harpy feathers 
you receive from Nalus, and visit the fletcher Ithir'renne in the extreme 
north of Aman'lu. Finally, Ithir'renne gives you an Aman'lu orchid, which you 
can take to Lelani to cheer her up.

Find the button on the wall to open a side room. Put a yellow cube in the 
yellow socket. Pick up a second yellow cube and two red cubes. Go down a 
level.

the elevator, follow the path and up the second elevator. Enter Tamari's 
house and talk to her to get the quest. When you near the end of the Lower 
Kithraya Caverns, take the south fork in the path to find the hive queen. 
When you reach the Azunite Desert camp, there will be a teleporter you can 
use to return to Eirulan and give Tamari the queen's head.


#6: The Hak'u
-------------
* Intended level: 7
* Find the hidden rear entrance to the Hak'u caves
* Rescue Hesla's daughter Tanzi
* Speak with Hesla in the Eirulan infirmary

During the search for the towers, you'll meet Morain, who will ask that you 
rescue her niece, Tanzi. Just past the third Morden tower, turn west to enter 
the hidden Hak'u caves and free Tanzi. After completing the Morden towers 
quest and getting your prisoner's collar removed by Taar, enter the infirmary 
to speak to Hesla, Morain and Tanzi to end the quest.


#7: The Hak'u, Part II
----------------------
* Intended level: 10
* Find Hrawn the Hak'u
* Kill the Hak'u leader who stands against your allies
* Return to Hesla in the Eirulan infirmary

This quest is added when the previous Hak'u quest ends. Immediately after 
completing Chapter 5, leave the Dryad camp by the west path. Near the 
incantation shrine is a small cave where you can find Hrawn. Talk to him, 
then head back to the Dryad camp and take the east path to the Eastern 
Greilyn Jungle teleporter.

Teleport to the Western Greilyn Jungle and go due west to find the house with 
the Hak'u usurper. Knock on the door to be allowed in, then kill the usurper. 
Teleport back to the Eastern Jungle and go back to Hrawn and his father in 
their cave. Receive your reward, then teleport back to Eirulan and go see 
Hesla, Morain and Tanzi in the infirmary.


#8: Dire Wolf
-------------
* Intended level: 10
* Speak to Rokhar the nature mage in the town of Eirulan
* Go to Rokhar's Rift Site
* Kill all the nawl beasts that come through the rift
* Remind Rokhar to send the dire wolf back to pet seller Neda in the

In the beginning of Chapter 5, talk to the pet merchant about more powerful 
pets. Then talk to Rokhar in the great hall. Fight through the Southern 
Greilyn Jungle until you pass Razka's Ruins. Turn north, cross the river and 
fight through the caves. Enter Rokhar's Rift Site and talk to Rokhar. Fight 
off the nawl beasts, then talk to Rokhar again. Return to Eirulan and talk to 
the pet merchant. You can now buy a dire wolf for a pet.


#9: Taar's Investigation
------------------------
* Intended level: 10
* Confirm or deny the existence of the Hak'u Ceremonial Blade
* Investigate the rumors of the Hak'u beast
* Slay the garganturax
* Take proof of the beast's death to Arianne in Eirulan

With Taar in your party talk to Arianne, who lives in the house next to the 
great hall. Teleport to the Northern Greilyn Jungle and head for the Hak'u 
ritual camp that is located north west of the teleporter. Get the Hak'u 
Ceremonial Blade from the camp by clicking on the carcass on the top of the 
altar.

Return to Eirulan and leave through the South Gate. When the path turns east, 
go south and find the cave of the garganturax. Equip the Hak'u Ceremonial 
Blade and kill the beast, then return with its head to Arianne.


#10: Feldwyr the Blacksmith
---------------------------
* Intended level: 12
* Find Feldwyr's anvil
* Find Feldwyr's mithril ore
* Return the anvil and mithril ore to Feldwyr
* Find Feldwyr's hammer
* Return Feldwyr's hammer to Feldwyr
* Speak to blacksmith apprentice Fyrndolf in the town of Aman'lu

When you reach the far eastern portion of the Eastern Greilyn Jungle, where 
the path turns south over a bridge, there are ruins to the north. Clear them 
out to find Feldwyr and talk to him. Feldwyr will open a door to the east 
that leads down into the depths of the ruins.

At the bottom of the stairs, the north path leads to a series of rooms laid 
out in a rectangle. The rooms are filled with level 14 Hak'u. The room along 
the southern edge of the rectangle has the level 16 mini-boss who is carrying 
Feldwyr's anvil. In the room along the eastern edge of the rectangle, search 
for a lever that opens a secret entrance into the center of the rectangle and 
collect the treasure.

From the fork in the path, the south rooms are filled with level 22 creatures, 
and Feldwyr's mythril ore is guarded by a level 24 mini-boss. Don't attempt 
this area until you are the appropriate level (at least 20). Once you have 
both the anvil and mythril ore, going up the stairs to see Feldwyr results in 
a cutscene in which his hammer is stolen.

Follow the newly opened path north of Feldwyr's room and kill more level 22 
creatures and another level 24 mini-boss. Return to Feldwyr with his hammer 
and he rewards you with a fantastic weapon.

Which will take a few days to make. When you finally reach Aman'lu at the 
beginning of Act II, you can search out the blacksmith and speak to his 
apprentice, who happens to be Feldwyr's brother, Fyrndolf. He'll give you the 
reward.


#11: A Family Heirloom
----------------------
* Intended level: 14
* Enter the crypt described by Master Thestrin
* Solve the Guardian of the Crypt's riddle

While collecting the Stelae of the Azunites, you'll pass a tower between the 
Guardian of Blindness and Guardian of Death. Enter the tower and take the 
elevator down to talk to Master Thestrin and receive the quest. The crypt he 
speaks of is southeast of the Azunite Desert camp. Enter it and talk to the 
statue (do not open the side doors unless you are at least level 26 or 
higher).

If you answer the statue's question incorrectly, it will spawn some level 16 
monsters, so you can farm a little XP this way. To answer the Guardian's 
question correctly, choose conversation options 3, 3, 1 and 1. The Heirloom 
Sword that is revealed is guarded by level 28 creatures, so if you're low 
level, run in, grab the sword and run away.

Return with the sword to Thestrin and he'll reluctantly give you a couple of 
chants. You don't want to use the first chant he gives you. You can also just 
keep the sword, in which case you get no useable reward and the sword itself 
isn't all that great.


#12: The Imprisoned Half-Giant
------------------------------
* Intended level: 19
* Talk to the soldiers about releasing Sartan once Windstone Fortress is safe
* Talk to the newly freed Sartan

When entering Windstone Fortress, you'll find Sartan in a pit. Talk to him. 
After you've activated your Azunite Artifact and blown a hole in the north 
wall, talk to Soldier Orayne and get Sartan released. Then talk to Sartan 
again.


#13: The Missing Squadron
-------------------------
* Intended level: 18
* Find Private Nolan
* Find Private Banos
* Find Private Caiden
* Speak to Squadron Leader Taarth

Private Banos is in a room along the south wall of the first hallway in the 
Eastern Windstone Gatehouse. Private Nolan is in the west-most room of the 
Windstone Barracks, which are directly west of the teleporter. Private Caiden 
is in the southwest corner of the Western Gatehouse. After talking to each of 
them and telling them to follow you, talk to Squadron Leader Taarth, who is 
standing near the pit where Sartan is held prisoner.


#14: Secrets of Xeria's Temple
------------------------------
* Intended level: 19
* Enter the Temple of Xeria and place the Stone of Life within its socket
* Finish exploring the Temple of Xeria
* Return to the grizzled bar patron in the Eirulan tavern

Talk to the grizzled bar patron at the Eirulan Inn to receive this quest. 
Keep choosing conversation option #1 to get him to spill the whole story. 
When you finally get to Xeria's Temple (Act I, Chapter 10), you'll find a 
room with two sockets: green and yellow.

Pick up three green stones from the southeast corner of the room and place 
one in the green socket. This opens a door on the west wall. Go in there and 
get three yellow stones. Place one on the yellow socket in the pit.

A door on the south wall opens. Enter and place a yellow and a green stone. 
Two more doors open up. Go one of those rooms and collect three red stones. 
Then enter the other newly opened room and place one of your red stones in 
the socket with one red symbol, and then a second red stone in the socket 
with two red symbols. Grab three purple cubes from the one side room and 
place one in the purple socket in the other side room.

This opens another side room with another purple socket. Place your stone and 
then you're back in the room with all four color sockets. Place a stone in 
each. Collect your booty, including the Chant of Scholars. Return to the old 
man to collect your reward.


============================
[4.3] Act II: Primary Quests
============================

Chapter 1: The Town of Aman'lu
------------------------------
* Speak with Celeb'hel the Elder in Alt'orn Hall in the town of Aman'lu

Go to the building in the middle of town and talk to the old guy sitting in 
the chair.


Chapter 2: Finala and the Broken Bridge
----------------------------------------
* Find Finala, the town's engineer, in the hills north of Aman'lu
* Convince Finala to return to Aman'lu and repair the broken bridge

From Aman'lu, head north until you find Finala. Convince her to go back to 
Aman'lu and fix the bridge--an easy argument--and complete this chapter.


Chapter 3: The Elen'lu Isles
----------------------------
* Travel to the Elen'lu Isles
* Find the replace the prism's four small refractor crystals
* Find the prism's large refractor crystal and activate the prism
* Return to Aman'lu and speak with Finala

After speaking with Finala, continue following the main path north, through 
the Northern Vai'lutra Forest until you reach the Temple of Istauru and 
Isteru. The Elen'lu Isles lie beyond the ruined temple.

Now you get a new task. The taclak have stolen the refractor crystals that 
collect the diffuse light in the Isles and focus it on the main prism. You 
must find four crystals and replace them in the refractors and aim the 
refractors at the prism.

**GLITCH WARNING**

Some have been unable to complete this quest as the game does not recognize 
they have crystals to place in the refractors. This apparently is caused by 
accidentally double-clicking a refractor. The game allows the player to place 
two crystals in the refractor. You can either be really, really careful to 
not double-click a refractor, or only collect and place one crystal at a time.

On the first island, kill the taclak and collect the first crystal. Then go 
east by clicking the arch over the bridge to extend it. Watch out for taclak, 
who have the ability to jump from island to island.

At the next island, turn north, east and east again and kill the taclak for 
your second crystal. Go south three islands, then take the other north bridge 

(the one to the east) to find the first refractor. Click it to place a 
crystal, then click it again to turn it so it shines west toward the prism.

Go back south, then head west two islands to pick up your third crystal. Go 
north, then to the north end of the island to reach the second refractor. 
Turn it once to point east. Go back to the south end of the island and take 
the southeast bridge, then go east to the third refractor. Turn it three 
times to point north.

Backtrack past the second refractor and go north to pick up crystal #4. Then 
go north and then east to refractor #4. Turn it three times to point south.

Now you have to find the big crystal that goes in the prism. Go back to 
refractor #2 island and take the east bridge to the main island. Kill the 
mini-boss for the prism crystal. Put it in the top of the pyramid and watch 
the cutscene. Then kill the horde of taclak, including mini-boss, that 
surround you.

From the north end of pyramid island, you can open a westward bridge that's a 
shortcut back to the teleporter back to Aman'lu. Head to the south end of 
town and talk to Finala.


Chapter 4: The Royal Caravan
----------------------------
* Locate the Caravan
* Find the Vai'kesh sanctuary
* Find the leader of the Vai'kesh

Follow the road south through the Southern Vai'lutra Forest until you reach 
the caravan. Talk to the wounded elf, then continue south until you enter the 
Vai'kesh Forest. When you arrive at the gates, turn left to find the Vai'kesh 
sanctuary. You can be either friendly with or belligerent to the guards, it 
doesn't matter. Once you gain entry to the sanctuary, talk to the Prophet to 
end the chapter.


Chapter 5: The Vai'kesh and the Aegis of Death
----------------------------------------------
* Follow the Vai'kesh Prophet
* Continue following the Vai'kesh Prophet
* Follow the Vai'kesh Prophet along Arinth's Ravine
* Defeat the Vai'kesh Prophet and his followers
* Find the Aegis of Death
* Defeat the Knotted Shambler
* Claim the Aegis of Death
* Talk to the Azunite Scholar

Destroy all the Vai'kesh in the auditorium, then loot the place. There are 
two sanctuary doors (nature mage and ranger) and two secret rooms on the east 
wall, with two more secret rooms opening off those. Once finished, exit 
through the same door as the Prophet and fight your way back into the 
Vai'kesh Forest.

Turn north and open the gates you passed earlier, then follow the path south. 
Keep going until you reach the eastern end of Arinth's Ravine, where the 
Prophet will finally stand and fight in front of some caves.

After the cutscene with the Prophet, run back toward the nearby teleporter 
and draw the Vai'kesh minions after you and destroy them piecemeal. The 
Prophet will stay near the caves. Once the minions are dead, return to fight 
the Prophet, who is fairly easy...

Because he's not the actual boss fight. After killing the Prophet, enter the 
cavern to the east and head for the star on your map, which is pointing the 
way to a fight with the Knotted Shambler.

Before trying to kill the Shambler, find and destroy the leaf generators that 
pop up out of the ground. There are six, and they only show one at a time. 
Once they are destroyed, attack the Shambler. It is weak to fire, so bring a 
combat mage with you. When it starts pounding the ground, run away as the 
concussive blasts can usually take out your casters.

When the Shambler is destroyed, take the Aegis of Death, then talk to the 
Azunite Scholar, who just happens to pop in to see what you're up to.


Chapter 6: Princess Evangeline
------------------------------
* Find the Azunite burial grounds
* Look for the Death Masks of Champion Rahvan's brothers
* Enter the Azunite catacombs
* Find Princess Evangeline
* Rescue Princess Evangeline

Take the portal from the grotto to the Garden of the Ancients. Head south to 
find a teleporter. There are four crypts in the vicinity of the teleporter: 
one directly south, one a bit east, one further east and one to the west. 
Clear out all four crypts and collect the Death Masks they contain.

Follow the main path west to another teleporter. Nearby is the entrance to 
the Azunite Burial Grounds guarded by a ghost. Show the ghost the four Death 
Masks you collected and he'll let you in the burial grounds.

Follow the path south, over several bridges, until you reach the catacombs. 
There's a missing elevator and four obelisks. Rotate (by clicking) the 
obelisks so they display, from left to right: purple tree, red eye, yellow 
eye and green tree. The elevator will arrive. Take it down to the lower 
catacombs

Fight through the catacombs to the west, and then north to reach the chamber 
where Evangeline is held prisoner by a Dark Wizard of Valdis. The Wizard is 
actually pretty easy once you figure out his defenses and pattern. There are 
some war pedestals scattered around the room to quickly recharge powers.

The Dark Wizard will summon some giant undead to guard him, but they're not 
too difficult. The wizard sticks to the center platform, so draw his summons 
away from him and destroy them. The wizard protects himself with three 
revolving crystal shards. Destroy the shards (not to hard) before unloading 
on the wizard with everything you've got.

He teleports around the platform, but it's not large so your melee fighters 
never have to run far to get back to him. Still, ranged attacks are better, 
so a fighter-heavy party might have some difficulty.

His main attack is a large, electrical explosion. Fortunately, you can see it 
coming when some sparking circles show up under your characters' feet. When 
they appear...run. Get away or you're going to take massive amounts of 
lightning damage. Once you learn how to avoid that attack, the wizard is a 
pushover--though it will take a while to drain his health.

After he's dead, talk to Princess Evangeline. Then talk to her again after 
she opens the north door. If you don't have room for her in your party right 
now, she'll go to the Inn of Aman'lu.


Chapter 7: The Siege of Snowbrook Haven
---------------------------------------
* Enter Snowbrook Haven through the servant's quarters
* Find the throne room and acquire the display case key
* Locate the Snowbrook Haven Commander

When you leave Eva, you'll have to fight your way out of the catacombs, 
eventually landing in Snowbrook Valley. Now you just have a very long and 
combat-rich dungeon crawl ahead of you. You'll fight your way through the 
Valley, into the Foothills, arriving at Snowbrook Mountain and working your 
way over that.

You will, after quite a long time, reach the servant's entrance into 
Snowbrook Haven. Fight through to the large room with the columns. At the 
north end of the room are two doors. Take the east door, then go south and 
then west over the bridge.

Continue west through the door and take the elevator down to the Living 
Quarters. Go through the door to the east and then either the north or south 
door to go down into the throne room.

Click the throne, take the display case key that is revealed, then fight off 
the rustguards that come to life around you. Head through the eastern door. 
Two rooms to the east you'll find a teleporter. South from the teleporter is 
an elevator. To the west of the elevator is a series of treasure rooms, one 
of which contains a mimic. Be sure to loot thoroughly before taking the up 
elevator.

The elevator leads up to the Snowbrook Haven Courtyard. Go up top and speak 
to the Commander to begin the next (and final) chapter of Act II.


Chapter 8: The Siege of Snowbrook Haven, Part II
------------------------------------------------
* Destroy the brall on top of the Snowbrook Haven inner keep
* Meet the Commander at the North Gate
* Destroy the Morden enemies that have broken through the North Gate
* Speak to the Commander at the North Gate
* Defeat the dragon
* Report to the Commander
* Retrieve the Aegis of Blindness
* Finish off the dragon
* Escape from Snowbrook Haven
* Travel to the town of Kalrathia and speak with the town lord there

Go down and around behind the dining hall to find the door leading into the 
eastern keep. What follows is from the Dungeon Crawls for Dummies instruction 
manual. Just keep going until you reach the upper ramparts of the keep and 
destroy the monsters hurling rocks. Then take the elevator down to see the 
Commander.

A horde of Morden will break through the gates and you must beat them off. 
Speak to the Commander again. Oh look! A humongous dragon! The Act II boss 
fight has finally arrived.

Send your party back up the elevator to the Inner keep. There's a circular 
platform to the south with a ballista. The only way to kill the dragon is to 
hit it with the ballista. Take your best-armored, highest health character 
and use Wait mode to send him/her solo to the ballista.

You can only hit Talon (the dragon) with the ballista. And you can only do 
this when he's perched atop the castle walls. There are five positions in 
which he lands, like so:

               3


       2                4
               B

1                                5

You can rotate the ballista (B) left and right using the cranks to either 
side of the device. Click the ballista itself to fire. Each time you hit 
Talon, he'll jump into the air and fire-bomb the platform for a bit.

While he's in the air, rotate the ballista to the #3 spot, so you can quickly 
reposition it to any landing spot when Talon alights once more. Once you've 
hit Talon a couple of times, the Morden will start catapulting Durvla up to 
the battlements.

Switch to the Mirror party order and press R to call your party to you to 
help deal with the Durvla; but, don't miss a chance to take a pot shot at the 
dragon while you're at it.

It takes about 8 hits to kill the dragon, so this fight mostly takes a lot of 
patience. Once it's over, head back to the Commander and speak to her.

Ah, well, so much for Snowbrook Haven. Head up the east side of the ramparts 
to the Reliquary door, which you can now unlock with the Commander's key. 
Grab the Aegis of Blindness. Before making good on your escape, remember 
there is always time for some constructive looting. Exit to the northeast.

Yeah...didn't see that coming...

This time, Talon's a lot tougher. He may have less than a third of his health, 
but you're going to have to chop that off yourself, without a huge piece of 
medieval artillery to help. There's little room to avoid his fiery blasts, 
just don't stand in them when they hit. Keep your ranged characters moving 
side-to-side and keep hitting him with powers.

Once Talon is finally, actually dead, speak to that blasted Azunite Scholar 
who keeps popping up after you could have used his help. Take the southeast 
door to the teleporter room. Grab the Greater Chants of Dexterity, 
Intelligence and Strength before using the teleporter to travel to Kalrathia.

Looks like the Morden got here first, but, amazingly, they aren't hostile. 
Head across the plaza to town hall and talk with the kid who's been thrust 
into the leadership role.

[4.4] Act II: Secondary Quests
==============================

#1: Tywlis' Broken Staff
------------------------
* Intended level: 30
* Find the reagent Tywlis needs to repair her grandfather's staff

The reagent you need is a rainbow trinket. Keep an eye on your inventory, 
it's possible you will already have one or more by the time you reach Aman'lu 
the first time. If not, you can pick one up in the Snowbrook Valley in the 
Frigid Cave. The cave is to your left as you pass over the first bridge.


#2: A Dark Ohm
--------------
* Intended level: 26
* Observe the Vai'kesh during one of their rituals
* Return to mage Lyssanore in Aman'lu

Speak to Lyssanore (the potions/magic merchant in Aman'lu) to start this 
quest to learn a chant that allows you to speak with spirits. Once you reach 
the Vai'kesh Forest and are pursuing the Vai'kesh Prophet, you'll see a 
cutscene of the Prophet setting his minions on you right after emerging from 
the first Large Vai'kesh Cavern.

If you explore the cave from whence the Prophet's servants come, you'll find 
a door. Open the door, observe the ritual, then return to Lyassanore and 
she'll share the Chant of the Dead with you.


#3: Spirits of Aranna
---------------------
* Intended level: 26
* Find the restless spirit in the Lost Valley of the Azunites
* Find the restless spirit in the Northern Greilyn Jungle
* Find the restless spirit in the Western Greilyn Jungle
* Find the restless spirit near the Eastern Greilyn Beach
* Find the restless spirit in the town of Eirulan

* Find the restless spirit below the town of Kalrathia
* Find the restless spirit in Zaramoth's Horns

Once you have the Chant of the Dead, you can speak to any one of these 
spirits to open the quest. There should always be an incantation shrine near 
the spirit, and the chant lasts 300 seconds (5 minutes) so there's always 
plenty of time to get from shrine to spirit. However, if there are enemies 
between the shrine and the spirit, you might want to clear them out first.

1. The spirit in the Lost Valley of the Azunites hangs out near the Cavern of 
the Phoenix at the southern end of the valley. There's a shrine right next to 
the ghost.

2. The Northern Greilyn Jungle spirit is in the Hak'u caves northwest of the 
Eirulan North Gate. There's a shrine in the caves.

3. There's a spirit and a shrine near the Hak'u usurper's house just west of 
the Western Greilyn Jungle teleporter.

4. The spirit on the Greilyn Beach path can be a bit difficult to reach. The 
easiest way to get there is to teleport to the Azunite Desert and then use 
the portal to get to the beach. Otherwise you teleport to the Kithraya Valley 
and then have to hack your way back through the Lower Kithraya Caverns to the 
beach. The incantation shrine is right there above the beach path, not far 
from the ghost.

5. The Eirulan spirit hangs out on the bridge leading past the Falls. The 
incantation shrine is near the bottom of the lift coming from the Eirulan Inn.

6. In the northernmost part of the Temple of Xeria, next to the incantation 
shrine, is a lever which opens a secret passage leading to the Cavern of 
Earth. The ghost is along a south hall just inside that secret entrance.

7. The tranquil cave is behind a waterfall south of the second Morden tower 
from Act I, chapter 3. The quickest way to reach it is to jump to the 
Northern Greilyn Jungle teleporter and head west. There's an incantation 
shrine just over the hills. From the shrine, run south and look for the 
waterfall on your right (west).

8. This spirit is in the Snowbrook Haven servant's quarters. When you first 
enter this area, you'll come to a large room with a lot of columns. At the 
northern end of the room, take the west door to find an incantation shrine. 
Then go through the east door, then south, then east again to find the spirit.

9. The Arinth's Ravine spirit is in the grotto where you fight the Knotted 
Shambler. The incantation shrine is in the Large Vai'kesh Cavern "next door".

10. There's a spirit on a balcony on the second floor of the Aman'lu Inn. The 
incantation shrine is in the northeast corner of the town.

11. To find the other Aman'lu spirit, enter Tywlis' basement and search for 
the hidden button. Take the elevator down and cross the bridge to the western 
hall. Search for another hidden switch, then use the nearby incantation 
shrine and take the secret passage down to the ghost.

12. While exploring the Azunite Burial Grounds, you'll find a large cavern 
with ice falling from the ceiling. There's a west path that leads out to a 
plateau of the Garden of the Ancients. The spirit is on the eastern peninsula 
of this plateau, the incantation shrine is to the west.

13. The spirit in the Eastern Plain of Tears is just past the teleporter. 
There is an incantation shrine a bit further to the northeast.

14. You'll find a spirit on the southwest corner of the Kalrathia battlements. 
The incantation shrine is just outside the North Gate.

15. Just past the Upper Mines of Kaderak (East) teleporter, go up the stairs 
to the west to find the room with the ghost. The incantation shrine is across 
the flying bridge to the east.

16. This spirit is in the town square of Darthrul. Use the incantation shrine 
in the District of the Crossbow, once you have access.

17. The spirit under Kalrathia is in the Agallan Trial area near the southern 
waterway. There's a shrine nearby to the east.

18. About halfway up Zaramoth's horns you'll find a large plateau with an 
incantation shrine up on a platform. The ghost is in the extreme southeast 
corner of the plateau.


#4: Viperclaw
-------------
* Intended level: 19
* Find a jagged arrowhead reagent and return it to Eumenidie in Aman'lu
* Find a griffon feather reagent and return it to Eumenidie in Aman'lu
* Find an onyx fragment reagent and return it to Eumenidie in Aman'lu

Talk to Eumenidie in Aman'lu to get this quest to make a reagent for 
bows/crossbows: the Viperclaw. Check your pockets regularly, as you might 
pick up one of the reagents without knowing it. Specifically, you can get:

* A jagged arrowhead in the southern portion of the swamp that is just north
  of Aman'lu.

* A griffon feather in Elen'lu Isles by following the flooded chamber to
  reach an island just north of your starting point.

* An onyx fragment from one of the many Small Vai'kesh Caves(tm) in the
  Vai'kesh Forest.

You can take the ingredients one-by-one to Eumenidie or save them and take 
them all at once. Either way, once you've given her all three, you'll get a 
viperclaw reagent.


#5: Arinth's Legendary Staff
----------------------------
* Intended level: 26
* Find the Focusing Stone
* Find the Jeweled Shaft
* Find the Carved Rod
* Return to Eolanda in the town of Aman'lu with the pieces of
  Arinth's Legendary Staff

Talk to Eolanda, who lives just north of the Aman'lu pet shop to start this 
quest. You'll need to complete the Dark Ohm quest first, so you can speak to 
ghosts. Once you have the Chant, you must find three Ancient Elven 
Reliquaries where spirits guard the pieces of Arinth's staff.

* The Focusing Stone is in a Reliquary below Isteru's Caves. Teleport to the 
Western Cliffs of Azunai and go east then south into the caverns and find the 
ruins in the southwest corner. Go up the stairs and find the shrine, incant, 
the take the elevator down to the Reliquary. The switch for the elevator is a 
button hidden on the steps next to the elevator.

* The Carved Rod is in a Reliquary in the Northern Vai'lutra Forest. Head 
north from the Aman'lu hills until you find the incantation shrine where the 
path turns east. Incant the Chant of the Dead, then go north and look for a 
ramp leading down to a cul-de-sac. You'll find the elevator going down to the 
Reliquary in the cul-de-sac.

* The Jeweled Shaft can be found in the Snowbrook Valley. From the Valley 
teleporter, after crossing the bridge, go north and find a set of stairs 
leading down. Go use the incantation shrine to the west, then go down these 
stairs and down into the Reliquary using the elevator next to the river.

Once you have all three pieces of the rod, return to Eolanda in Aman'lu to 
finish this quest.


#6: Arinth the Mad
-------------------
* Intended level: 26
* Track down Arinth
* Defeat Arinth

After remaking Arinth's Legendary Staff, return to Eirulan and teleport to 
the Lost Valley of the Azunites. East of the teleporter, search for an 
elevator--the switch is hidden on the north wall of the ruins. Ride the 
elevator down to Some Lost Elven Ruins.

The room in which you arrive has a single door on the north side. In the next 
room, search for a hidden switch on the wall opposite the door (north wall), 
to open a door to the south.

In the newly revealed room, there's another hidden switch on the wall near 
the door. This opens another room to the south. The hidden switch in this new 
room is also near the door. This opens a room to the east. Find the hidden 
switch in this room along the south wall.

S) Start
A) Switch opens door #1
B) Switch opens door #2
C) Switch opens door #3
D) Switch opens door #4

You'll now be able to go down some stairs to the east, eventually arriving at 
an Elven Prison, where you find Arinth the Mad. Have your combat mage equip 
Arinth's Staff and use it to break the central pillar in Arinth's cell wall. 
Arinth will flee to the Temple of Istauru & Isteru in the Northern Vai'lutra 
Forest.

Summon a teleporter back to Eirulan, jump to Aman'lu and thence to the 
Elen'lu Isles. Enter the ruined temple and have it out with Arinth. You don't 
have to use his staff against him, he's vulnerable to normal attacks.
 
In addition to some tasty loot, defeating Arinth gives all your characters 
two bonus skill points. That was worth the trouble, right? Return to Eolanda 
and tell her you killed Arinth and you'll get even more filthy lucre. Ain't 
this a great game?


#7: Mythrilhorn
---------------
* Intended level: 33
* Find Khartos the Wise
* Defeat Khartos the Wise in a duel
* Go to the rift site
* Cover Khartos while he captures the mythrilhorn
* Remind Khartos to send the mythrilhorn back to pet seller Galeron
  in Aman'lu
* Speak to pet seller Galeron in Aman'lu

This quest will open another pet for you; but, you can't even really get 
going on it until Act III. Talk to the pet seller in Aman'lu about special 
beasts to open this quest. Once you reach Kalrathia, find Khartos the 
"Strong" as he now calls himself, drinking himself to death in the tavern.

Sober him up by beating on him for a bit and he'll head off to the rift site 
to summon a mythrilhorn. When you reach the Northern Plain of Tears 
teleporter, look to the right to find a path going down to the northeast. 
This leads to Khartos' Rift Site and you fight Durvla while Khartos summons a 
mythrilhorn.

Once you're done, talk to Khartos, then return to the pet seller in Aman'lu 
to buy a mythrilhorn.


#8: A Family Heirloom, Part II
------------------------------
* Intended level: 26
* Locate the demon
* Destroy the demon
* Speak with Athelas

If you completed A Family Heirloom in Act I, (and, if you kept the sword, you 
have it in your Inventory), you can talk to Athelas in the Aman'lu Inn to 
start this quest. Once you reach the Vai'kesh Forest and are pursuing the 
Vai'kesh Prophet, you can find a Vai'kesh Prison.

After leaving the first Large Vai'kesh Cavern, turn south to enter the prison 
and talk to Athelas. If you kept the heirloom sword, equip it to one of your 
characters and break open the demon's cage. Kill the demon. (You don't need 
to use the sword on the demon, just the cage.) Talk to Athelas afterward for 
your reward.


#9: Lothar's Innocence
----------------------
* Intended level: 24
* Find Roland's golden cloak
* Find Magrus
* Defeat Magrus
* Return to Roland in Aman'lu

With Lothar in your party, speak to Roland at the Aman'lu Inn to begin this 
quest. While exploring the Southern Vai'lutra Forest, look for a Watery Cave 
along the west side of the path, not far past the North teleporter. Enter the 
cave, kill the mobs and find Magrus--a half-giant farming mushrooms. Speak to 
him and he'll flee, dropping his house key.

Follow him to his house, which is north of the Watery Cave, in a little grove 
to the east of the path. Defeat him in battle and he will go to Roland and 
confess his crime. Return to Aman'lu and speak to Roland and Magrus at the 
Inn to conclude the quest.


#10: Deru's Treasure Hunt
-------------------------
* Intended level: 19
* Find the explore the location identified on the map given to Deru by the
  Elven prospector
* Find and explore the location identified by Razka's Riddle
* Find and explore the location identified by Razka's Second Riddle

In Aman'lu, find an old prospector on a small plateau southeast of the pet 
shop. With Deru in your party, speak to the old man to begin the quest. The 
map you are given shows Razka's Ruins in the Southern Greilyn Jungle. Take 
Deru to the Southern Greilyn Jungle teleporter and down into Razka's Ruins.

Have her open the treasure chest inside to get another riddle that points to 
the Frozen Cave in Arinth's Ravine. Go to Aman'lu and thence to either 
Arinth's Ravine teleporter and head for the Frozen Cave, which is midway 
through the ravine on the south side. When Deru opens the treasure chest in 
the cave, you'll receive a second riddle that points to the Plain of Tears.

When you reach Kalrathia, head north from the city and look for a path 
downward to a lower plateau to the east. At the east end of the plateau, walk 
into the water to reveal the hidden Magical Oasis. Deru can open the treasure 
chest beyond the door and complete her quest.


#11: Mark of the Assassin
-------------------------
* Intended level: 35
* Pick up the intriguing stone
* Encounter the assassin
* Speak to Danadel
* Investigate the Liantir Stone in the town of Kalrathia
* Bring a Dwarven mythril ring to Enchantress Valeria in Kalrathia
* Find Merchant Kendril
* Defeat the assassin

In Aman'lu, in the abandoned house just southwest of the pet shop, pick up 
the bling-bling on the table to get yourself assassinated. Well, almost. 
After Danadel helps you recover, he'll tell you all about the Liantir Stone 
you just picked up and where to go to find out more about it.

When you reach Kalrathia at the beginning of Act III, enter the magic shop 
and speak to Enchantress Valeria to continue the quest. Valeria needs a 
mythril ring to enchant that will enable you to see the assassin who has 
marked you.

When you reach the Upper Mines of Kaderak, right after the cutscene that 
starts chapter 5, go up the stairs to the south and through the first door. 
Pull the lever on the south wall to open the secret room that has the Dwarven 
Mytrhil Ring.

Take the ring back to Valeria in Kalrathia. Equip the new ring she gives you, 
then go to the room behind the Innkeeper. Talk to Merchant Kendril to force 
the assassin to appear. Kill him and collect his Deathblades as a reward. You 
can also get a small reward by speaking to Kendril again.


#12: The Aman'lu Arena
----------------------
* Intended level: 19
* Defeat the first wave of combatants
* Defeat the second wave of combatants
* Defeat the third wave of combatants
* Defeat the fourth wave of combatants
* Defeat the fifth wave of combatants
* Defeat the sixth wave of combatants
* Defeat the seventh wave of combatants
* Defeat the eighth wave of combatants
* Defeat the ninth wave of combatants
* Defeat the Arena Masters

Speak with the barkeep at the Aman'lu Inn and deny all the great things he's 
heard about you. He'll challenge you to test your skills out in an arena. Go 
behind the bar, through the door, down the elevator and talk to the barkeep's 
assistant. He'll let you through a door that leads down a long, spiral 
staircase to the arena.

Speak with Daesthai to open the Aman'lu Arena quest and learn the rules of 
the game. Basically, you pay for a token, place that token on the pedestal in 
the center of the arena, the arena floor drops and some monsters come spewing 
forth. Defeat them, then click the Forfeit Lever to raise the arena. (Yes, 
you use the "forfeit" lever to raise the arena--sort of like using the Start 
button to Stop Windows.)

Defeating the monsters earns you a key. The keys you earn open doors to 
treasure rooms around the arena. There are ten rounds in all. You do not have 
to use the keys immediately. You can even wait until you're near the end of 
the game before opening the treasure rooms. Since the treasure dropped 
depends on your level, you'll get better stuff that way.

One last note, the Aman'lu Arena is a natural item farm. You can win all ten 
rounds, save your game, then start opening treasure rooms. If you don't like 
what you get, you just reload and it's only a short trip back to the arena 
and you start opening doors again.

Finally, for defeating all ten rounds of the Arena, you get two bonus skill 
points for each character, the Mysterious Token (part of the Mysterious 
Mystery Quest) and you can then purchase the light naiad pet from Daesthai.

The rounds are:

Round     Cost     Mobs (quantity x level)
-----     -----    -------------------------------------------------
 1        1,000    1x24 and 2x22 monsters
 2        1,500    1x26 and 3x24 (the 24th level mobs are summoners)
 3        2,000    1x28 and 4x26
 4        3,000    1x30 and 4x28
 5        4,000    5x33
 6        6,000    1x38, 4x36
 7        8,000    1x34, 6x37 
 8       12,000    1x39, 7x37
 9       16,000    1x40, 10x39
10       25,000    2x40, 10x37


#13: A Servant's Haunt
----------------------
* Intended level: 26
* Enter the Levreth Estate
* Learn the Chant of the Dead
* Speak with the ghost of Threnith Wilwarin
* Follow the ghost of Threnith Wilwarin and look for clues
* Find the jewels of the Levreth Estate
* Bring the proof of Threnith's innocence back to Eldoriath
  Wilwarin in the town of Aman'lu

Speak to Eldoriath in his house just past the south bridge out of Aman'lu. 
Once you have the Chant of the Dead, go to the Southern Vai'lutra Forest 
(South) teleporter, which is the one next to the destroyed royal caravan. Use 
the incantation shrine on the hill behind the teleporter to incant the Chant 
of the Dead, then go east to the entrance to the Levreth Estate, which looks 
like a kind of shrine with an elevator in the middle.

At the bottom of the double elevators, speak to the ghost of Threnith. He'll 
unlock the south door for you. Go in the room and pick up the portrait of 
Lady Levreth. Speak to Threnith again and he'll open another door for you. 
Continue collecting clues and talking to Threnith until you have the lock of 
golden hair, a burned letter and the family jewels.

Return to Eldoriath to finish this quest.


#14: A Servant's Haunt, Part II
-------------------------------
* Intended level: 26
* Confront Lady Levreth in the town of Eirulan
* Confront Wethril the Guardian Commander in the town of Aman'lu
* Defeat Wethril the Guardian Commander
* Speak to Celeb'hel the Elder in Aman'lu's Alt'orn Hall about
  Wehtril's deception

After completing Part I, talk to Threnith (who is now in Eldoriath's house) 
to open this quest. Return to Eirulan and seek out Lady Levreth at the Inn. 
Push her on the subject of her husband's death and she'll confess and name 
the true killer: Guardian Commander Wethril in Aman'lu. Return to Aman'lu and 
confront Wethril, who is in Alt'orn Hall next to Celeb'hel. After killing him, 
talk to Celeb'hel to end this quest.


#15: Amren's Vision
-------------------
* Intended level: 19
* Find and explore the first location in Amren's vision
* Find and explore the second location in Amren's vision
* Find and explore the third location in Amren's vision
* Find and explore the fourth location in Amren's vision
* Investigate the portal in Amren's vision

Throughout your travels, you will find some mushrooms growing in large 
circles. Obviously, natural mushrooms do not grow in exact circles. Take 
Amren with you to one of these circles and he'll have a vision. Talk to him 
afterward to open this quest.

Visit each of the four circles with Amren in your party and have him activate 
the proper (glowing) mushroom to take you to four different shrines. Let 
Amren activate the statue in each shrine. When you visit the shrines, you can 
also pick up a Lore book in each one.
 
The four mushroom circles are:

1. Eastern Greilyn Jungle, on a north-pointing promontory just east of 
Razka's Ruins. Use the Southern Greilyn Jungle teleporter to get there. This 
is the Shrine of Life, and has Vol. 17, The Path of Life.

2. Southern Vai'lutra Forest, just west of the North teleporter. This is the 
Shrine of Sight, and has Vol. 18, The Path of Sight.

3. North of the Garden of the Ancients (South) teleporter. This is the Shrine 
of Death, and has Vol. 19, The Path of Death.

4. West of the Ruins of Okaym teleporter, a little north of the main path. 
This is the Shrine of Blindness, and has Vol. 20, The Path of Blindness.

Once you have activated the statue in each shrine, a portal opens to a fifth 
shrine. In this one is the end-of-quest treasaure chest Amren must open and 
it yields the Virtuous Rebellion longbow, amongst other goodies. Once you're 
done salivating over your swag, take the portal from the fifth shrine back to 
any one of the other four.


#16: Finala's Contempt
----------------------
* Intended level: 22
* Explore the hidden Morden intelligence camp
* Find and burn down the first hidden Morden tower
* Find and burn down the second hidden Morden tower
* Find and burn down the third hidden Morden tower
* Find and burn down the fourth hidden Morden tower
* Locate and destroy the hidden Durvla hatchery
* Find and explore the second Morden intelligence camp

Initiate this quest by taking Finala to the broken elevator in the Upper 
Kithraya Caverns. With Finala as the active character, click the broken 
mechanism and ride the elevator down into a Morden intelligence camp. Have 
Finala open the treasure chest to get a map to four hidden Morden towers.

Teleport to the Southern Greilyn Jungle and head west to the Abandoned Ruins. 
Finala will find a secret door inside the ruins and you can follow the path 
to an elevator that takes you up to a plateau with the first Morden tower. 
Destroy it as you did the towers in Act I.

Teleport to the Northern Greilyn Jungle and go to the impassable wall just 
north of the teleporter. Finala will find the secret entrance. Pass through 
and destroy three Morden towers. After the final tower is destroyed, Finala 
finds another map and an elevator gear.

When you reach the Morden city of Darthrul in Act III, Chapter 2, take Finala 
down the east path from the town square. She'll find the hidden entrance to 
the Durvla Hatchery. Clear out the mobs, then blow open the cage by shooting 
the explosive, spiked container next to it. Finala can loot the chest to find 
a Morden Wrench, which will come in handy for fixing elevators.

When you reach the Southern Desert of Kaderak (Act III, Chapter 4), take the 
north path past the entrance to the mines and follow it until you find an 
elevator on a small hill. Finala will fix the elevator, and you can clear out 
the intelligence camp and loot the chest to end the quest.


#17: Rahvan's Curse
-------------------
* Intended level: 28
* Find Letiso the lich
* Defeat Letiso the lich
* Return Champion Rahvan's soulstone

Show Champion Rahvan the four Death Masks to gain entrance to the Azunite 
Burial Grounds. Follow up with him about his memories coming back and he'll 
ask you to find and destroy the lich that killed him and enslaved his spirit. 
He'll give you a chant (Letiso) to use to find the lich's secret tomb.

When you get to the lower Azunite Catacombs, the path will soon split. Take 
the south path to find a shrine. Clear it out, then stand on the purple tree 
symbol on the east side of the room. Incant the Letiso chant and the door to 
the lich's tomb will open.

Kill the lich, then return to Rahvan to conclude the quest.


#18: Evangeline's Folly
-----------------------
* Intended level: 28
* Seek Jessic and the soldiers in the Vai'kesh stronghold
* Seek Jessic in the second Vai'kesh stronghold
* Seek Jessic in the third Vai'kesh stronghold

Add Princess Evangeline (Eva) to your party and equip her appropriately. 
Teleport to the Southern Vai'lutra Forest (South) teleporter and talk to the 
wounded caravan guard. He'll open Evangeline's Folly quest.

Teleport to the Western End of Arinth's Ravine. Follow the main path west 
until you reach a bridge. Before the bridge, turn left (west) and go along 
the edge of the chasm to reach a small cave. You'll be able to get through 
the locked door and pick a fight with the Vai'kesh in the room and the room 
beyond, which contains the jailor, who is mini-boss level. After killing all 
the Vai'kesh, speak with Eva's soldier in the jail cell.

The next cavern in your quest is along the north side of Arinth's Ravine, so 
hoof it back the way you came and fight your way along the ravine to the 
large cavern on the north side. Enter the cave, find the door and repeat the 
process of killing the jailor and talking to the soldier.

The third, and final, cave is further along the ravine, so head east. When 
you get to the second bridge, instead of crossing, continue east to find the 
entrance to the cave. Enter, kill the jailor and talk to Jessic to end the 
quest.


=============================
[4.5] Act III: Primary Quests
=============================

Chapter 1: Restore Kalrathia's Water
------------------------------------
* Follow the aqueduct to its source
* Defeat the Ganth
* Restore Kalrathia's water
* Return to Lord Kalrathia in the great hall

Leave Kalrathia by the North Gate and follow the path until you reach the 
Water Temple. Inside the temple, fight the Ganth, who has 12,500 health; is 
resistant to fire, lightning and death damage and has health stealing ability 
on its weapon. But, tough as the Ganth is, when you exit into the Temple 
Courtyard, you're in for much worse.

The Courtyard is crawling with Morden and you will be hard pressed. Plenty of 
AoE powers are the name of the game. When everything is dead, push the 
glowing button on the north wall to turn the water on. Teleport back to 
Kalrathia and speak to Lord Kalrathia.


Chapter 2: The Morden Chief
---------------------------
* Enter the Morden city of Darthrul
* Speak to the Morden Chief
* Defeat the Morden Chief
* Bring the head of the Morden Chief back to Lord Kalrathia

Leave Kalrathia by the East Gate and fight your way through the Eastern Plain 
of Tears and Ruins of Okaym. Once you enter Darthrul, you should meet a 
Patrol Leader who, when killed, will drop a key to the District of the Sword, 
which is located in the northeast quadrant of the city. Enter and kill the 
City Lieutenant for the key to the District of the Crossbow.

That district is the southwest quadrant. Once again, enter and kill the City 
Lieutenant, who drops the key to the District of the Lance. The District of 
the Lance is in the northwest and the City Lieutenant drops the key to the 
District of the Chief.

Enter the District of the Chief to the north. Fight your way to the Chief, 
speak to him, then kill him. Return to Kalrathia and talk to Lord Kalrathia 
to start Chapter 3.


Chapter 3: The Kalrathian Rebellion
-----------------------------------
* Defeat all the Morden in the town of Kalrathia
* Report to Tehruth

Well, this is pretty simple. You just wiped out a whole city of Morden, now 
all you have to do is clear them out of Kalrathia. There are 30 Morden, and 
the game will count them down for you. Zoom in on your map to find the little 
red dots, and don't forget about the North Wall, where there are about six 
Morden. Once they are all dead (you'll get a task entry in your Quest log), 
return to the great hall and speak to Tehruth.
 
Chapter 4: The Mines of Kaderak
-------------------------------
* Travel to the Desert of Kaderak
* Destroy the first protective statue
* Destroy the second protective statue
* Destroy the third protective statue
* Destroy the fourth protective statue
* Enter the Mines of Kaderak

After Kalrathia gives you the Aegis of Sight, Tehruth will give you an 
activation stone for the Southern Desert of Kaderak teleporter. Teleport 
there and head north to the entrance to the mines. Destroy the four statues 
around the entrance, then ride the elevator down. Head down the stairs until 
you see the cutscene showing the giant shard.


Chapter 5: The Mines of Kaderak, Part II
----------------------------------------
* Destroy the giant shard cluster
* Find the Dark Wizards
* Destroy the Dark Wizards
* Recover the Aegis of Life
* Return to Lord Kalrathia with the Aegis of Life

Work your way east through the Upper Mines of Kaderak, pulling each lever you 
find. This will send an explosive-filled mine cart into the giant shard and 
open the way into the Lower Mines. Descend into the shard pit, then climb the 
wooden ramps to enter the Lower Mines.

Follow the path north, then east to reach a large elevator that takes you to 
the Summit of the Dark Wizards. Ride up the second elevator to your boss 
fight against the wizards.

These guys are more powerful versions of the one you faced when rescuing 
Evangeline--and there are three of them. Make sure you have a Nature Mage 
with the Resurrection spell or lots of Resurrection scrolls available.

Tactics are roughly the same. Take out the crystals that defend the wizards, 
then unload on them with powers. When you see circles (of lightning, death or 
fire) surrounding your characters, run! Concentrate on one wizard at a time. 
Fortunately, these guys don't summon anything, and they don't do a lot to 
help each other out.

Stick to one like glue until he's toast, then move on to the next one. Keep 
an eye out for those circles of doom at your feet and be patient. They are 
susceptible to curses, so having a combat mage with a decent curse or two 
will be helpful. And you can have your nature mage cast Spirit Embrace to 
make your party immune to the wizards' curses.

When all three are dead, take the Aegis of Life and return to the Lower Mines 
and teleport back to town. Lord Kalrathia is ill and in bed in his room on 
the west side of the great hall. Speak to him to learn how, now that you have 
the four pieces, you can reforge the Shield of Azunai.
 
Chapter 6: The Agallan Trial
----------------------------
* Speak to Advisor Kynos
* Defeat Advisor Kynos
* Take the Kalrathian Crystal to the fountain in the center of the town
  of Kalrathia
* Enter the ancient chamber underneath the town of Kalrathia
* Speak to the Azunite Ancestor
* Restore water to the western waterway
* Restore water to the northern waterway
* Restore water to the southern waterway
* Restore water to the eastern waterway
* Go through the portal to the Agallan Peaks

Your first task is to speak to Advisor Kynos, who no one in their right mind 
would like. Fortunately, you get to kill him. You'll get the Kalrathian 
Crystal that unlocks the Agallan Trial under the city. You also get Kynos' 
house key; he lives in the north section of town if you want to help yourself 
to his things. He won't be needing them any longer.

**NOTE**
From this point, it is a long time until you see your next teleporter--about 
a quarter of the way through Chapter 8. You can use the town portal spell 
(Summon Teleporter), but those don't last through a reload. So don't start 
this next section unless you have some time to play. If you quit any time 
before the next teleporter, you're going to have a long, long trek in front 
of you.

Use the crystal on the glowing corner of the fountain, then press any of the 
buttons to ride down into the Agallan Trial area. Down the steps you go until 
you reach a large room and get a cutscene with your instructions. Talk to the 
Azunite Ancestor, then head through the west door.

Down more stairs...and more...and some more. When you finally hit bottom, go 
down into the water trough and pull the lever to open the sluice gate. Then 
turn the valve to start the water in the western waterway. Go through the 
broken wall into a tunnel.

The tunnel soon branches north and south. You can go either way, but, since 
the Quest Log lists the northern waterway next, head north. When you get back 
into the man-made section, look for a Mysterious Chant in the corner.

Note the three large stone controllers at the edge of the platform. These 
control floodgate doors down below. You have to activate them in various 
combinations to enable your party to get through to unblock the waterway and 
turn on the water. Each of the floodgate controllers has a center "button" 
that is either up or down.

The easiest thing to do is to enter Wait mode and send one character down and 
keep the others next to the controllers. It's easier to move one character 
around in the small rooms.

For the northern puzzle, set the controllers so the Center controller button 
is down and the other two are up. Go down into the waterway, open the gate 
and turn on the water. Go into the northwest room and around to the northeast 
room. Hit the switch in here so it is up and open the way to the south room. 
Push the switch in the south room down to open the way to the east platform.

On the platform, push the button on the east wall to open part of a shortcut 
to the southern/eastern waterway. Then go to the south end of the platform, 
enter the waterway and open the gate. This is actually for the eastern 
waterway, but might as well do it now.

Then go back into the northern waterway and open the second gate. The water 
should be running freely now. Go up onto the northern platform, reform your 
party (if you went solo), enter the room to the west and push the button on 
the wall to open a door back to the west waterway. Enter the tunnel and go 
south.

Along the way you'll encounter Spirit of Aranna #17. The incantation shrine 
is just to the east of the ghost. When you reach the southern waterway, open 
two gates and then turn on the water.

Go up on the platform and push each controller down, enter Wait mode and send 
your PC down into the waterway and open the gate. Enter the southeast corner 
room and thence into the southwest corner. Set this switch down and exit the 
room to open the last two gates to let the water run through.

Go back into the southwestern corner room and set the switch up to open the 
door north. Push this next switch down to open the north door and go through 
and open the gate. Return to the northwest room.

Here's where it get's much easier to do this in Wait mode. You have to turn 
the two switches up on the platform to the up position. This opens the way to 
get from the northwest room over to the northeast section of the waterway and 
open the last two gates and turn on the water. So you just change to another 
character, hit the two switches on the platform and you're home free.

If you haven't used the solo trick, here's what you have to do. Hit the 
switch in the northwest room to get to the southwest room. Hit the switch to 
open the door into the southern waterway. Go up to the platform and hit both 
switches. Go back to the southwest room, hit the switch, enter the northwest 
room and hit the switch and now you can get through.

For the record, to the north of the eastern water valve is a platform with a 
mana shrine (and a Mysterious Chant behind the shrine). At the west end of 
this platform is the button on the wall that opens the shortcut to the north 
platform, which you'll need to use if you did not previously open that last 
east gate.

To quickly get back to the stairs leading up, return through the south 
waterway and enter a room to the north and push the button on the wall to 
open a shortcut to the western waterway. Head up the stairs, through the big 
door, collect your loot and go through the portal.


Chapter 7: The Agallan Giants
-----------------------------
* Investigate the Agallan Peaks
* Use the portal to travel to Zaramoth's Horns

Nothing to do here but go talk to the giants. After your chat, step through 
the new portal and get ready to start fighting again...


Chapter 8: Zaramoth's Horns
---------------------------
* Ascend to the top of the mountain
* Defeat the Archmage

Enter the hall to the east and fight your way to an elevator. You may note 
some Eyes of Zaramoth statues scattered about. Hitting them causes them to 
shoot a highly damaging beam of light. This technique is not important now, 
but will be later.

The elevator takes you down into a prison, where you quickly come to another 
elevator that takes you up to a platform with three other elevators. The 
Agallan Obelisk in the center of the platform grants 30 seconds of 
invulneratiblity when used. Your party must be close by to be affected, so 
Regroup around the obelisk before clicking.

The northwest elevator takes you to nature and combat mage sanctuary doors 
and another elevator that puts you back on the main path, right at the Lower 
Zaramoth's Horns teleporter. Head north from the teleporter.

After the long bridge is a room with three doors. Go east and keep fighting 
your way until you get outside. Take the southern door from the incantation 
shrine area and begin a long (and possibly arduous) slaughterfest until you 
reach the archmage.

There's a teleporter right before you enter the Archmage's Chamber. This is 
the last teleporter in the game. If you quit the game, or your entire party 
dies, after this point, you will have to return here and do everything again 
(except for the Archmage fight).

The archmage fight takes place on a platform surrounded by obelisks. You can 
use the obelisks yourself, but the archmage uses them too and therein lies 
the problem. On his own, the archmage is not that difficult. He's got 90,000 
health, but he won't do much damage to your party.

The missiles he summons out of the obelisks are something else entirely. 
Every so often, the archmage will "convert" an obelisk to his own use and it 
will start firing out missiles. These missiles are instant death for any 
character they touch. They move slowly, so you can dodge them, but if the 
archmage converts a lot of obelisks, you're in big trouble.

Make sure you have a nature mage with a resurrection spell and some rez 
scrolls for the other characters in case the nature mage bites the dust. You 
can "redeem" an obelisk the archmage has converted by attacking the obelisk. 
However, in the long run, you are better off simply unloading every power in 
your book on the archmage himself.

This is likely to be the longest, most difficult battle yet. Once he's 
defeated, the final battle is waiting at the top of the stairs.


Chapter 9: The Final Ascent
---------------------------
* Locate the Temple of Valdis
* Destroy Valdis
* Go through the portal

You've got a lot of stairs to climb, and every inch is contested--many times 
by groups of mini-bosses. If you've been following this guide and doing every 
sidequest, you're probably running four to five levels above everything you 
encounter, so this is mostly tedious.

**NOTE** It cannot be stressed enough that if you quit or die here, you have 
to make this ascent again and *all* the mobs respawn.

When you finally reach the Temple of Valdis, it is remarkably (and 
comfortingly clear). Open a town portal and hie thee back to Kalrathia for a 
refit. Make sure you have rez scrolls for everybody. Lots of potions. Etc.

Continue into the temple until you meet Valdis. Don't try to attack him, he's 
invulnerable. The only way to hurt him is to lure him in front of one of the 
Eyes of Zaramoth placed on the edges of the room, then beat on the eye to 
open it (and they don't have great range). Conversely, Valdis can kill you 
quite easily. No matter how well you've outfitted your party, one sword combo 
from Valdis and they all turn into grave markers.

The best way to handle Valdis is to get beyond an Eye in a straight line from 
Valdis, so that he is forced to walk directly past the Eye you're near. Time 
it so your ranger starts attacking the Eye when Valdis is about three to four 
steps away (or two or five, depending on the damage your ranger can do). If 
you time it right, Valdis will get zapped before he even gets close enough to 
you to start swinging.

For example:

      Eye


             Valdis


             X - start shooting the Eye when Valdis is here


      Eye


             You

It will take patience and practice, but once perfected, you can take Valdis 
out pretty easily. You have to hit him three times to advance to the next 
stage of the fight. After the first hit, Valids summons a horde of Qatall 
Minions. Take them out while staying away from Valdis, then re-commence the 
luring/zapping project.

After the third hit, you get the Fantasy RPG Plot Twists for Idiots cutscene 
and the fight against Valdis takes on a more traditional flavor. Valdis is 
now, essentially, just another boss character. He's got 90,000 health and he 
can regenerate, so you don't want to leave him alone for a long time.

Don't worry about falling into the lava, if your characters are reasonably 
well-equipped, you won't get hurt (much). Just don't go swimming in it. Lay 
into Valdis with everything you've got.

Valdis has four main attacks:

1. A shockwave that will throw your characters back. Not a huge problem, even 
if you fall in the lava. However, if your party is melee-heavy, it will push 
the fighters off Valdis for a few seconds, during which he can regenerate. 
Don't worry about the shockwave and just keep at him

2. He will bring rocks crashing down. This is (or should be) a non-issue. A 
few rocks shouldn't hurt you, but, if they're giving you fits, just watch for 
the enlarging shadows and run away.

3. A gigantic fireball. This one's dangerous. Fortunately, Valdis starts to 
glow yellow before releasing it, and he won't change his orientation once he 
starts the spell. So, as soon as Valdis begins to glow yellow, run behind him 
and attack his back while he blasts empty air with a pretty fireball.

4. More a defensive maneuver than an attack, Valdis will clone himself, 
giving himself time to regenerate while you attack a clone. However, the 
clones don't react to attacks--they don't physically react and they don't 
make any noise. So if you hit a Valdis and it doesn't do anything, go attack 
another one.

Once you take off one-third of his health, he summons a horde of Qatall 
Minions. By this point, Qatall Minions should be little more trouble than 
flies. Don't worry about them and concentrate on Valdis.

When Valdis reaches 0 health, he revives and summons a shield around himself. 
(So, why didn't he do this earlier?) You can't penetrate the shield, but the 
great big Eye of Zaramoth that was just revealed, can. This one's easy 
because Valdis doesn't have his sword. Stand in front of the eye, wait for 
Valdis to get close, then whack it. Brutal Strike or Take Aim (or some other 
high-damage, single strike power) works very well.

After the cutscenes you can return to Kalrathia and finish up whatever you've 
left hanging. This would be a good time to do The Mysterious Mystery Quest. 
You can also arrange your companions and equipment for playing at the next 
difficulty level. One thing you might want to do now is visit a store and buy 
some 0-level bows, swords and spells. If you want to do a little multi-
classing at the higher difficulty levels, you won't be able to buy any 0-
level gear to get you started. So buy it now and stick it in your Storage 
Vault or on a pet at the Inn.

===============================
[4.6] Act III: Secondary Quests
===============================

#1: Dwarven Song of Ore
-----------------------
* Intended level: 35
* Find the Silver stanza
* Find the Iron stanza
* Find the Gold stanza
* Find the Mythril stanza
* Return the stanzas to Historian Leontia
* Return with the fourth stanza to Historian Leontia

Talk to Historian Leontia in the great hall of Kalrathia to begin this quest. 
You'll find the stanzas in the Mines of Kaderak.

* The Silver stanza is in the Upper Mines in a side room just past the third 
lever.

* The Iron stanza is in a side room just past the East teleporter. Go up the 
stairs to the west and look in the room with the Spirit of Aranna.

* The Gold stanza is in a hidden room east of the elevator to the Lower Mines. 
There's a set of three rooms, go to the west room and pull the lever to 
expose the chest with the stanza.

* The Mythril stanza, which is not originally part of the quest, is in a 
chest just south of the Lower Mines teleporter.

It makes no difference whether you return the first three stanzas to Leontia 
and then bring her the fourth, or just bring her all four at once. The reward 
is the same in either case, and includes both the Chant of Prosperity and the 
Greater Chant of Prosperity.


#2: The Lore of Aranna
----------------------
* Intended level: 33
* Find the Lore of Aranna collection and return to Telgrey the Scholar

Telgrey lives in a house in the northeast corner of Kalrathia. Ascend the 
stairs near the East Gate and go north into his room. Talk to him about the 
Lore of Aranna. There are 20 volumes in the collection:

1. Kings and Queens of the Northern Reaches: Snowbrook Haven Servant's 
Quarters

2. The Dark Wizards: Vai'kesh Sanctuary, on a table on a stairway as you 
leave the sanctuary

3. Downfall of the Manu Ostar: In Alar'ithil's house south-west of the south 
bridge out of Aman'lu

4. Valdis and His Armies: In Tywlis' house in Aman'lu

5. Turmanar and its Aftermath: In Alt'orn Hall in Aman'lu

6. The Skath: In the tower where you meet Vix, near the Upper Kithraya 
Caverns

7. The Deeds of Xeria: Windstone Fortress' Western Gatehouse

19. The Path of Death: Shrine of Death (part of Amren's Vision quest)

20. The Path of Blindness: Shrine of Blindness (part of Amren's Vision quest)

Vol. 20 should be the last one you collect, as it isn't available until 
Chapter 2 of Act III. Once you have them all, return to Telgrey. When you 
first talk to him to complete the quest, all he gives you as a reward is a 
"book" called "The Mercenary and the Scholar".

If you read this little ode, it's obviously a joke. Talk to Telgrey again to 
receive your true reward, which will include the Mysterious Book, part of the 
Mysterious Mystery Quest.


#3: The Lost Jewels of Soranith
-------------------------------
* Intended level: 33
* Enter the Ancient Vault
* Solve the second puzzle within the vault and see if there are any
  jewels locked within
* Solve the third puzzle within the vault and investigate the area
  for more jewels
* Return to Kevarre the Explorer in the Kalrathia tavern

Enter the tavern in Kalrathia and speak to Kevarre the Explorer. He'll spin a 
tale of an ancient vault of Soranith, in which he found an amulet. He thinks 
there are more jewels in the set, and tasks you with finding them.

While walking through the Northern Plain of Tears, look for a path down to a 
plateau to the east, just before reaching the teleporter. Enter the square 
tower on the south side of the plateau and descend into a Mysterious Vault. 
Fight your way through to the second vault and clear the room.

Great! More light puzzles.

There are five obelisks in the room, each connected by channels like so 
(north orientation):

               _________
              |         |
    __________A____     |_____
   |          |    |          |
   |          |    |____      |
   |          |         |     |
   |          |         |     |
   |     _____B_________C     |
   |    |     |         |     |
   |    |     |____     D_____|
   |    |          |    |
   E____|          |____|

The channels are initially dark, they must be lit. When you click an obelisk, 
all other obelisks connected by an unlit channel start to glow. Click one of 
those obelisks and the channel lights up and the other obelisk becomes active. 
So on and so forth. Once a channel between two obelisks is lit, you can't 
"connect" those two obelisks again. The statue on the south side of the room 
resets the puzzle if you get stuck.

There's probably several solutions to this, but here's one:

D - A - C - D - B - A - E - B - C

Two doors to the south will open. In the next room get Soranith's Silver Ring 
from a treasure chest behind the west door, then go through the south door, 
down the stairs and into a more complicated light puzzle.

This time there are nine obelisks like so (north orientation):

   _____A_______________B     C_____
  |     |               |     |     |
  |     |     __________|     |     |
  |     |    |                |     |
  |     |    |     ___________|     |
  |     |    |    |                 |
  |     |    |    |                 |
  |     D    |____E___________      |
  |     |         |           |     |
  |     |         |           |     |
  |     |         |      _____F_____|
  |     |         |     |     |
  |     |         |     |     |
  |_____G_________|     |     |_____
        |               |           |
        |               |           |
        |_______________H___________I

Again, there are probably several solutions, here is one:

H - F - I - H - G - A - D - G - E - F - C - E - B - A

A door to the south opens, collect a Mysterious Chant (Rando Conjurum Ix) and 
Soranith's Gold Ring. Return to Kevarre in the Kalrathia tavern to end the 
quest and receive Soranith's Amulet, completing your set.


#4: The Legendary Mace of Agarrus
---------------------------------
* Intended level: 33
* Talk to Explorer Tai'esse in Aman'lu
* Find the stone tablet fragment
* Return the stone tablet fragment to Explorer Tai'esse in Aman'lu
* Enter the tomb of Agarrus and locate the mage

In Kalrathia, in the northern section of the city, find a soldier named 
Berseba and talk to her about the mace of Agarrus. Head to Aman'lu and find 
Tai'esse at the Inn. Speak to her to receive a stone key, which will lead to 
a fragment of a stone tablet.

Teleport to the Snowbrook Foothills and go a bit north and then south and 
then east into an entrance to the Snowbrook Grotto. From the entrance, go 
south and then west, keeping an eye out for man-made steps leading down to 
your left (south). Go down the steps, open the door and collect the fragment.

Return to Aman'lu and speak to Tai'esse. Travel to Eirulan and teleport to 
the Western Cliffs of Azunai. Go south into the Azunite Cavern where you 
retrieved the Artifact. The tomb is in the northwest corner. Extend the south 
bridge over to the tomb by finding the switch hidden on the north wall of the 
small ruin near the bridge.

Enter the tomb and speak to Guardian Magentus to close the quest and receive 
the mace.


#5: The Mage's Apprentice
-------------------------
* Intended level: 34
* Find Apprentice Darek and Mage Boden's research journal
* Return to Mage Boden with his journal
* Defeat Mage Boden
* Speak with Apprentice Darek

Speak to Mage Boden in the Kalrathia magic shop to begin this quest. He'll 
give you a golden mirror and some directions to where his apprentice might 
have gone. When you reach Darthrul in Chapter 2, before entering the gate, 
head west and go down into the dry canal.

At the end of the canal, go up the stairs and then down into Some Ancient 
Ruins.

Oh boy! Another light puzzle!

The statue on the north side of the room is missing its mirror, the golden 
one Mage Boden gave you fits quite nicely and starts the beam of light. There 
are two doors, to the north and west, and you must shine the light on each to 
open it. There are 17 statues in all, scattered about the room.

 
The north door is simple, direct the light south one statue, west one statue, 
south one statue, east one statue and then north to unlock the door.

                  Door
                    |
                    |  1

         |          |
         |          |
         4----------5

The west door is a bit more complicated.

Direct the light all the way to the south end of the room, to the fourth 
statue. **NOTE** You will have to turn statues out of the way to let the 
light pass. Send the light east one statue, then north one statue, then west 
three statues. Now direct the beam south one statue, east two statues, south 
one statue then west and move all the intervening statues out of the way 
until the light hits the west door.

X = Statues that must be turned out of the way to let the light beam pass.

Beyond the west door is a treasure room. Behind the north door is Mage 
Boden's apprentice, Darek. Turns out Boden is a nasty guy.

Gee, what a surprise.

Return to Kalrathia and confront and kill Boden. Darek then mysteriously 
appears. Talk to him to close the quest and earn your reward.


#6: The Kalrathian Nexus
------------------------
* Intended level: 33
* Imbue the Soul Staff at the Node of Earth
* Imbue the Soul Staff at the Node of Frost
* Imbue the Soul Staff at the Node of the Phoenix
* Return to Nora

Near the North Gate of Kalrathia you'll find Nora the Nature Mage. Speak to 
her about the seal placed on the Kalrathian Nexus. She'll give you a Soul 
Staff, which needs to be imbued with power from three ley lines.

	The Node of Earth is located in the Cavern of Earth in the north part 
of Xeria's Temple. Find the secret passage next to the incantation shrine and 
follow it to the cavern.

	The Node of Frost is located in the Cavern of Frost in the Snowbrook 
Haven Servant's Quarters. Opposite the incantation shrine, go through the 
north door to reach the cavern.

	The Node of the Phoenix is located in the Cavern of the Phoenix at the 
south end of the Lost Valley of the Azunites.

Enter each cavern, descend to the center, equip the staff and incant the 
chant Nora teaches you (Arcesso Arcanum). Once the staff has been imbued at 
all three nodes, take it to the Kalrathian Nexus, which is a cave along the 
north side of the Eastern Plain of Tears.

Equip the staff and break the seal over the nexus. Return to Nora to receive 
the Soulstaff of the Nexus and other junk as your reward.


#7: Sartan's Suspicion
----------------------
* Intended level: 33
* Find Osric, a suspected spy working for the Morden
* Find the Morden arsenal
* Free the prisoners
* Return to Soldier Orayne

In Kalrathia, take Sartan into the tavern and speak to a drunkard named 
Feltan. He'll point you to the location of a suspected spy hiding out in the 
Eastern Plain of Tears. When you reach the Eastern Plain of Tears, keep 
heading east away from the city until you enter A Mysterious Cavern.

With Sartan in your party, knock on the door at the east end of the cavern. 
Sartan will kill Osric, then find out Osric was a double agent. Now it's up 
to Sartan to rescue some prisoners of the Morden. When you reach the Ruins of 
Okaym teleporter, head west into the hills to find the Morden arsenal.

Enter and clear out the Morden. When you find the prisoners, blow open their 
cells by exploding the spiked containers next to the cell doors. Use a ranged 
weapon or spell to blow them open, unless your fighter is a masochist. Then 
return to the Mysterious Cavern and speak to Orayne to finish the quest.


#8: The Morden Riders
---------------------
* Intended level: 35
* Find a Morden tent
* Find a sack of Morden rations
* Find a pack of Klask rations
* Bring the supplies to Nordax and Neillibok

When clearing the District of the Lance in Darthrul, look for the hidden 
switch that lowers an elevator to a cellar. Kill the Lieutenant in the cellar 
and get the key to the District of the Shield. In that District, enter the 
pit along the south wall and find the hidden switch that lowers an elevator 
to the eastern end of the dry canal.

Fight your way east until you meet Nordax and Neillibok. Agree to help them 
find supplies so they can desert. Return to Darthrul and raid the supply 
vaults in the Districts of the Crossbow, Lance and Shield. Go back to the 
Riders and talk to them. Pick up your reward from the Ancient Vault behind 
the east wall.


#9: Vix's Vengeance
-------------------
* Investigate the additional mine caverns Vix discovered
* Destroy the first cluster of shards
* Destroy the second cluster of shards
* Destroy the third cluster of shards

After reaching the Lower Mines of Kaderak, look for a path east. Take Vix 
along the path to the large door, which he will break down. Clear out the 
mines beyond. When you reach a shard cluster, look for the exploding mine 
cart nearby. Pull a lever to turn the tracks the correct direction, then pull 
another lever to send the cart into the cluster. After the third cluster, 
loot the area behind the shard.


==================================
[4.7] The Mysterious Mystery Quest
==================================

* Please note the information contained here is an abbreviated version of 
this mystery. The full solution can be found here:

http://db.gamefaqs.com/computer/doswin/file/dungeon_siege_ii_mystery.txt

It was put together by Gulnaga, Negorath, ebator and dknyc. Full credit to 
them for solving the mystery and posting the solution.

BegInning as early as midway through Act I, you may encounter a mysterious 
creature known only as ???. This level 100 thief teleports in whenever you've 
just received a large drop of magic items. He'll steal some of your items, 
run around for a bit, then teleport away.

Your goal, when he appears, is to hit him with everything you've got (large 
damage powers are especially useful). At the least, getting hit will keep him 
away from your treasure and cause him to drop some of his own. If you succeed 
in draining his health, he drops a Mysterious Stone, on which is etched 
"surotces suiranmuloc". (Note that ??? will keep showing up throughout the 
game, even if you "kill" him.)

In addition to the Stone, you will need three Mysterious Set items: 
Mysterious Bucket, Mysterious Book and Mysterious Token.

* Mysterious Bucket: hidden in the Elven Prison where Arinth the Mad is held. 
Once you've opened the stairs, activate the lamp to one side of the door into 
the prison. A secret door halfway up the stairs will open. Get the Bucket 
from the treasure chest.

* Mysterious Book: part of the reward for completing the Lore of Aranna 
Secondary Quest in Act III.

* Mysterious Token: part of the reward for completing the Aman'lu Arena 
Secondary Quest in Act II.

Once you have all four items, are pretty high level (at least 40) and very 
well-equipped, grab the Set items and the Hak'u Ceremonial Blade you picked 
up in Act I and go to any incantation shrine and manually incant:

  columnarius sectorus

You'll be transported to a Mysterious Cave. There's a teleporter, but it's 
one way only. You can teleport out, but you have to use the chant to get back 
in. Head west to the first door. You need the Mysterious Bucket to open this 
door--you don't have to equip it, just have it in Inventory.

Beyond is a series of hallways occupied by level 40 praire dogs. They're a 
lot tougher than any of Valdis' minions, so watch out. These dogs hit for a 
lot of damage and have plenty of armor. You'll need some AoE powers to keep 
them off you.

The next door requires you have the Mysterious Book in your Inventory. Beyond 
is a large cavern with the nastiest fight in the entire game.

There are evil doppelgangers of all nine of your NPC companions from the game 
(the ninth being Drevin). They are well-equipped, level 40 and have 30,000 
health--each. Your only hope is to draw them away one-by-one. They have loads 
of resistances, so curses would be helpful. Drown is probably the most 
effective as it not only has a higher DPS then other curses, but it aids your 
nature mage as well (weakening resistance to ice damage).

Once the evil NPCs are gone, the door to the west will open. You now pass 
through seven rooms filled with avatars of the DS2 developers. Most of them 
have something to say (and occasionally what they say is humorous). Three are 
of special note:

Chris Gorski wants to play a text adventure game--you know the old school 
dungeon romps, "You are in a dark tunnel. The floor is sticky. There are 
exits to the north, east and west. What do you want to do?" Follow these 
directions: go east nine times, south three times, north, south four times, 
west, north, west and then fire an arrow to the west. You'll kill the vicious 
gremel and get it Gun:

Gremel Gun
* Super Attack Speed (0.5 second attack duration)
* Two Handed Weapon
* Damage 26 to 42
* Range 11 meters
* Requires Ranged 35

Andres Mendez wants to quiz you about the country of Colombia. The correct 
answers are: Bogota; Yellow, blue and red; About 8,660 feet above sea level; 
55 percent; and Simon Bolivar. (Amazing what you can learn by Google.) Your 
reward is:

Spirit of Bolivar (1h sword)
* Fast Attack Speed
* Damage 25 to 58
* Requires Melee 38
* +15 Liberator Power (Max damage)
* +18% Latino Flavor (Fire resistance)
* +18% Latino Beat (Ice resistance)
* +18% Futbol Love (Death resistance)
* +18% Chibcha Soul (Lightning resistance)

Brian Fricks will trick out your Hak'u Ceremonial Blade:

Hak'UBER Ceremonial Blade
* Fast Attack Speed
* Damage 26 to 44
* Requires Melee 38
* +30 Dancing (Dexterity)
* 30% Noise Antipathy (Damage reflection)

Beyond these rooms is an arena where DS & DS2 designer Chris Taylor is 
engaged in a pillow fight. Hang around long enough and he'll drop a pillow.

Fluffy Happy Pillow (club)
* Fast Attack Speed
* Damage 1 to 2

It doesn't do much, but it's definitely a conversation piece. On the west 
side of the pillow fight arena, stand in front of the door, equip the three 
Mysterious Set items and manually incant:

  Requo furtivum ixo

The Set items will disappear (meaning you can't come back again after a 
reload in the current game). You'll enter a strange treasure room with three 
chests. From these you can collect a variety of items, including three unique 
items:

Eli's Bucket (helm)
* Armor: 23
* Requires character level 40
* +20 Life of the Party (Strength, Dexterity & Intelligence)
* +8% Happy Oblivion (Melee resistance)
 
Sarah's Mug of Frothing Goodness (throwing weapon)
* Normal attack speed
* Requires ranged level 38
* Requires Quick Draw 1
* 41-62 damage
* Range: 8 meters
* Adds 13 to 15 Foaming Damage (Fire damage)
* +90 Great Taste (Health)
* 20% More Refreshing (Health regeneration)
* 10% Less Filling (+Physical damage resistance)
* -12% Inhibitions (Intelligence)
 
Borgrim Thull -- the Demon's Visage (helm)
* Armor: 53
* Requires character level 40
* +8% Pure Evil (Combat magic damage)
* +30 Evil Intensity (Armor)
* +100% Evil Resistance (Death resistance)
* +3 to Evil Skills (Combat Magic skills)

[5.1] Handbook
==============

Following are the entries made in your Handbook. They are provided here for 
ease of reference. You may want to print them out and refer to them as you 
play.


Lesson 1: Using the Camera
--------------------------
To rotate the camera side-to-side, move the mouse pointer to the right or 
left side of the screen. To rotate it up or down, move the pointer to the top 
or bottom of the screen.

You can also use the arrow keys to rotate the camera, or hold down the mouse 
wheel and then move the pointer.

The zoom the camera in or out, rotate the mouse wheel forward or backward, or 
press the EQUAL SIGN (=) or MINUS SIGN (-).

Camera Hotkeys:

Rotate Left: A
Rotate Right: D
Rotate Up: W
Zoom In: EQUAL SIGN (=)
Zoom Out: MINUS SIGN (-)


Lesson 2: Basic Controls
------------------------
To move your party through the world, LEFT-CLICK where you want them to go.

LEFT-CLICK friendly characters to talk to them. When the pointer is over 
someone you can talk to, a talk balloon appears.

To interact with objects in the world, either LEFT- or RIGHT-CLICK them. This 
is how you open chests, pull levers, open doors and more. When the pointer is 
over an interactive object, the pointer turns into a hand.

You can find treasure by breaking containers you find, such as pots and 
barrels. To break a container, RIGHT-CLICK it. When your pointer is over a 
breakable object, an action icon appears on the object.


Lesson 3: Important Characters
------------------------------
Characters who can provide information, trade goods with you, or perform 
valuable services are identified by icons displayed above their heads.

Character with gameplay information have a blue letter i over their heads. 
You don't have to speak with them, but they often teach important lessons 
about how to play the game.

Merchants are indicated as follows:
Reagent Merchant - an emerald
Armor Merchant - a shield
Weapon Merchant - crossed weapons
Magic Merchant - a potion
Enchanter - a hand and eye
Pet Seller - a pack mule head
Innkeeper - a candle


Lesson 4: Items and Gear
------------------------
To pick up an item, LEFT-CLICK it, or press Z to automatically pick up 
everything around your party.

You can view and equip gear from the Inventory tab in the Character Window. 
To open the Inventory tab, LEFT-CLICK the Character Window button in the 
lower left of the screen, or press the I key.

You can also open a character's Inventory by DOUBLE-CLICKING his Character 
Portrait to open his Character Window, and then LEFT-CLICKING the Inventory 
tab.

To equip a weapon or piece of armor in your Inventory, LEFT-CLICK the item to 
attack it to the pointer, move it to an equipment slot, and then LEFT-CLICK 
again to drop it in the slot. You can also RIGHT-CLICK gear in your Inventory 
to equip it. If you pick up a type of gear that you are not wearing, you 
automatically equip it.

Item Hotkeys:
Pick Up Items: Z
Inventory: I


Lesson 5: Attacking Enemies
---------------------------
Throughout your adventure, you will encounter many hostile opponents. When 
your pointer is over or near an enemy, it turns red. To attack an enemy once 
only, equip a weapon and then RIGHT-CLICK that enemy.

To attack an enemy until it is dead, hold down the right mouse button.

*ADDITIONAL NOTE*
You can return your character to DS1 behavior in Options>Gameplay by turning 
on Autonomic. If you do this, your character behaves according to the Party 
Orders unless you specifically command otherwise; however, your character 
won't autocast spells.


Lesson 6: Equipping and Selecting Spells
----------------------------------------
Spells are managed on the Spell Book tab in the Character Window. To open the 
active character's Spell Book, press B. You can also open a character's Spell 
Book by opening the Character Window and then LEFT-CLICKING the Spell Book 
tab.

Spells must be placed in an equipped Spell Book before they can be used. 
Equip a character with a spell book and open it. To place a spell in his 
Spell Book, RIGHT-CLICK a spell in his Inventory or DRAG the spell to a Spell 
Book panel.

The Character Panel on the left side of the screen is used to select equipped 
weapons and spells. The first four spells in a character's Spell Book appear 
in the Character Panel. LEFT-CLICK a spell in the Character Panel to select 
it and use that spell.


Lesson 7: Casting Spells
------------------------
To attack an enemy with spells, equip and select an attack spell and then 
simply attack an enemy the same way you would attack with a weapon. When the 
pointer is over a valid target for an equipped attack spell, the pointer 
turns red.

RIGHT-CLICK to cast other types of spells. To heal party members, RIGHT-CLICK 
the character or their portraits. RIGHT-CLICK the ground to cast summoning 
spells and RIGHT-CLICK items to transmute them.

When the pointer is over a valid target for an equipped beneficial spell, 
such as healing or embrace spells, the pointer turns blue.


Lesson 8: Autocast Spells
-------------------------
The fifth and sixth slot in a character's Spell Book are autocast slots. If a 
character has a spell equipped in an autocast slot, they will automatically 
cast that spell on any valid targets in their range.

The following types of spells can be autocast.

Healing:
Character will cast healing magic on any wounded allies in range.

Enhancement:
Characters will enhance any characters in range that do not have the maximum 
number of enhancements. They will recast any enhancements that wear off.

Curse:
Characters will curse any monsters in range that are not already cursed.

Summoning:
Characters will summon a creature whenever their summons dies or is dismissed.


Lesson 9: Class Experience and Character Level
----------------------------------------------
Every time a character damages a monster he earns experience, depending on 
the type of attack he uses. For example, melee weapons, such as sword, 
increase Melee skill, while Nature Magic spells increase Nature Magic skill.

Characters are most powerful when they focus on one class, but getting a few 
levels in a second class is a great way to pick up useful skills. Parties 
with a variety of classes are often more versatile and powerful.

Increasing class levels allows characters to use more advanced equipment and 
spells. Progress towards the next class level is displayed in the progress 
bars in the Class Stats on the Inventory tab.

Character level increases when a character earns enough experience of any 
type. It is a good indication of overall power level. Characters earn one 
skill point each time they advance in character level. Progress towards the 
next character level is displayed in the progress bar under the character's 
name in the Character Window.


Lesson 10: Stat Experience and Experience Sharing
-------------------------------------------------
Fighting monsters increases statistics as well as class levels. The attack a 
character uses determines which statistic increases the most. Melee weapons 
primarily increase strength, ranged weapons primarily increase dexterity, and 
spells primarily increase intelligence.

Strength increases melee weapon damage and maximum health. Dexterity 
increases ranged weapon damage. Intelligence increases spell effectiveness 
and maximum mana.

A character's progress towards the next class level is displayed in the 
progress bars in the Class Stats on the Inventory tab.

All conscious party members in a region share experience equally, so even if 
one of your companions isn't dealing as much damage as another, they will 
both earn the same amount of experience.


Lesson 11: Journal
------------------
To open the Journal, LEFT-CLICK the Journal button in the lower left of the 
screen, or press J.

Quests are listed on the Journal's Quest Log tab. They are organized by Act 
and divided into Primary and Secondary sections. Primary quests must be 
completed to progress in your mission, but Secondary quests are optional.

Whenever you complete a task or are assigned a new quest, the Journal button 
flashes to indicate the Journal has been updated.

You can also look in your Journal to find maps, information about monsters 
you've defeated, and other useful information.

LEFT-CLICK the Journal's Lore tab to see important items you have collected. 
Quest items, books, maps and chants that you find are stored on your Lore tab 
instead of in your Inventory.

Journal Hotkey:
* Open Journal: J


Lesson 12: Finding Quests
-------------------------
There are two types of quests: Primary and Secondary. Primary quests must be 
completed to progress in your mission, but Secondary quests are optional.

Characters with gold exclamation points over their heads can assign Primary 
quests to you, so you should speak to them to advance in your journey. 
Characters with orange exclamation points over their heads will assign 
Secondary quests.

If you are working on a quest task for a character, they will have a gray 
question mark over their head. A character with a gold question mark over 
their head will complete a task in a Primary quest if you speak to them. A 
character that can complete a Secondary quest task will have an orange 
question mark over their head.

Some Secondary quests can only be assigned to certain party members. 
Characters who assign these Personal quests are indicated by a green 
exclamation mark.

* Gold Exclamation Point--new Primary quest
* Gold Question Mark--completed Primary quest
* Orange Exclamation Point--new Secondary quest
* Orange Question Mark--completed Secondary quest
* Gray Question Mark--incomplete quest
* Green Exclamation Point--new Personal quest


Lesson 13: The Active Character
-------------------------------
All party members are marked by green circles around their feet. The active 
character has a brighter green circle around his feet and a brighter green 
border around his Character Portrait. You control the active character 
directly--he does what you tel him to do and nothing more.

The active character will not move or defend himself.

Other party members act on their own, based on the current Party Orders.

To select a different active character, LEFT-CLICK that character in the 
world, or LEFT-CLICK his portrait in the upper left of the screen. You can 
also use hotkeys to select a new active character.

Active Character Hotkeys:
* Make Next Character Active: . (period)
* Make Previous Character Active: , (comma)
* Make First Character Active: F1
* Make Second Character Active: F2
* Make Third Character Active: F3
* Make Fourth Character Active: F4
* Make Fifth Character Active: F5
* Make Sixth Character Active: F6


Lesson 14: Party Orders
-----------------------
Party Orders control how characters in your party act when you are not 
controlling them directly. There are two options:

Rampage:
Party members actively seek out and attack any monsters they can see.

Mirror:
Party members imitate the active character. They move where he moves and 
attack the same monsters he attacks.

To set Party Orders, LEFT-CLICK the View Party Orders button in the lower 
right of the screen, or use the associated hotkeys. To gather your party to 
one spot, LEFT-CLICK the Regroup Party button or press the R key.

Hold Ground:
If you want everyone in your party to hold their positions, you can do so by 
holding down the C key.

Formation Rank determines where in the formation each party member will stand. 
You can change the formation by holding down LEFT-CLICK and dragging a 
character portrait up or down.

This is useful if, for example, you'd like to move a weaker character to the 
back of the formation.

Party Order Hotkeys:
* Set Rampage Party Order: G
* Set Mirror Party Order: F
* Expand Formation: LEFT BRACKET ([)
* Contract Formation: RIGHT BRACKET (])
* Regroup Party: R
* Hold Ground: C


Lesson 15: Potions
------------------
If your party members have become wounded, you can LEFT-CLICK the Health 
Potions button in the lower left of the screen or press H to make them drink 
health potions. Only party members who are not at full health will drink a 
potion, and they will only drink as much as they need.

To restore your party members' mana, LEFT-CLICK the Mana Potions button in 
the lower left of the screen or press M to make them drink mana potions.

Potions restore health and mana slowly, so plan ahead in dangerous fights. 
Party members share potions automatically, so if a character is out of 
potions she will drink a potion a companion is carrying.

Party members use only as much of a potion as they need. You can combine 
partial potions of the same type by DRAGGING one to the other in a 
character's Inventory.

Potion Hotkeys:
* Drink Health Potion: H
* Drink Mana Potion: M


Lesson 16: Monster Information
------------------------------
Some monsters are stronger than others. When you attack a monster, you will 
see its Health Bar appear at the top of the screen. The more ornate the 
Health Bar border, the more powerful the monster. However, you should be able 
to defeat any monster that is close to your level. When you place the pointer 
over a monster, information about it will appear in the Status Bar at the top 
of the screen.

The monster's level is shown in parentheses next to its name, and its name 
and level are color-coded based on the difference between its level and your 
own:

* Green--five or more levels below you
* Blue--between four and two levels below you
* Yellow--between one level below you and one level above you
* Orange--between two and four levels above you
* Red--five or more levels above you

Focus on fighting monsters that are close to your own level. If the monsters 
you fight are many levels above or below you, you receive reduced experience 
for defeating them.


Lesson 17: Resistances and Weaknesses
-------------------------------------
There are many ways to attack enemies in Dungeon Siege II. You can attack 
them with melee weapons, shoot them with ranged attacks, or cast damaging 
spells at them. Some monsters are particularly resistant or weak to certain 
types of attacks. It is good to know what types of attacks there are:

* Melee--damage from melee weapons
* Ranged--damage from ranged weapons
* Physical--damage from ranged or melee weapons
* Magic--damage from any spell attack
* Fire--damage from fire attacks
* Lightning--damage from lightning attacks
* Death--damage from necromantic attacks
* Ice--damage from ice spells

When you are attacking a monster, you can see its resistances and weaknesses 
below its Health Bar at the top of the screen. Try to use attacks the monster 
is weak to. Be careful--if the monster's resistance to an attack is more than 
100%, the attack will heal it!

Your characters can find spells and items that increase their own resistances. 
Look for resistance items and use them when facing monsters that attack with 
elements. You can never resist more than 95% of an attack.


Lesson 18: Compass Map
----------------------
The Compass Map is located in the lower right of the screen. It shows an 
overhead view of the area around the party and serves as a compass. Important 
locations, such as shops, are marked on the Compass map with icons.

Enemies are displayed on the Compass Map as red dots and neutral characters 
as green dots. Interactive objects, such as levers, appear as blue dots.

The Compass Map also guide you to important quest goals. Primary quest goals 
are marked by gold starts on the Compass Map, and secondary quest goals are 
marked by silver stars. A gold arrow points in the direction of your next 
primary quest goal.

Resize the Compass Map by LEFT-CLICKING the up and down arrow buttons below 
it. Zoom the Compass Map in and out by adjusting the slider below the Compass 
Map. Hold down TAB for a larger version of the Compass Map.

Map Hotkey:
* Show Overlay Map: TAB


Lesson 19: Configuring Powers
-----------------------------
Powers are special abilities that can turn the tide of battle for the party, 
but they require wisdom and strategic timing to use properly.

To set powers for characters to use, LEFT-CLICK the Specialties tab in the 
Character Window and DRAG powers to the circular slots in the Character Panel. 
You can configure up to four powers per character.

LEFT-CLICK a power in the Character Panel to select it. When a power is 
selected, a small border appears around it.

The party's currently selected powers appear as buttons in the Power Bar at 
the bottom of the screen. Each character can only have one power selected at 
a time, so the first slot in the Power Bar always contains the first 
character's selected power, the second slot always contains the second 
character's power, and so on.


Lesson 20: Using Powers
-----------------------
To use a character's power, LEFT-CLICK the button for that power in the Power 
Bar at the bottom of the screen. Powers with orange icons activate 
immediately and do not need to be targeted.

If you LEFT-CLICK a Power Bar button with a blue icon, you will enter 
targeting mode. A power targeting reticle will appear; place it over your 
target and RIGHT-CLICK to fire the power. LEFT-CLICK to exit targeting mode 
if you decide not to use the power.

Different powers target different things. Check the power description on the 
Specialties tab to see what the power targets and whether it chooses targets 
automatically.

You can also use the hotkeys to activate powers. Each Power Bar button 
displays that power's hotkey in its corner.

Power Hotkeys/Buttons:
* Fire Power: RIGHT-CLICK
* Exit Targeting Mode: LEFT-CLICK
* Activate Power 1: 1
* Activate Power 2: 2
* Activate Power 3: 3
* Activate Power 4: 4
* Activate Power 5: 5
* Activate Power 6: 6


Lesson 21: Recharging Powers
----------------------------
After using a power, characters must recover their strength before they can 
use a power again. After a power is used, that power's icon becomes dark. The 
darkness lifts as the party damages creatures. When a power is fully 
recharged, the Power Bar button flashes to indicate that the power is ready 
to use again.

Powers have different recovery rates based on their potency. If a character 
attempts to use a power before he has recovered, nothing will happen and an 
error message will appear.

Characters can gain abilities or special items that help their powers 
recharge more quickly. Keep an eye out for these as you explore the world.


Lesson 22: Learning Powers
--------------------------
To view a character's powers, LEFT-CLICK the Specialties tab in the Character 
Window or press P. Under the Specialties tab are four additional tabs--one 
for each class. Each tab displays the powers a member of that class can learn.

Place your pointer over a power on the Powers panel to display a tool tip 
with information on what the power targets, what it does, and what happens 
when you upgrade it.

Each power has three levels of strength, and each level requires certain 
skills.

The skills that your character must gain before they can learn or upgrade the 
power are displayed in red. To learn a power, assign the needed number of 
points to each of the required skills.

The character will learn the power automatically once they have the required 
skills. Plan ahead what powers you want to learn and assign points carefully.

See the 'Skills' and 'Upgrading Skills' lessons for more information.


Lesson 23: Skills
-----------------
Skills give characters passive bonuses that enhance their effectiveness in 
combat. Characters purchase skills using skill points that they earn from 
quests and by advancing in character level. Characters earn one skill point 
each time they advance in character level.

To view a character's skill tree, LEFT-CLICK the Specialties tab in the 
Character Window or press P.

Under the Specialties tab are four additional tabs--one for each class. Each 
tab has a skill tree for that class. Place the pointer over a skill for 
information about its effects and requirements.

Every skill has a class level requirement that characters must meet before 
they can purchase it, and most skills require characters to learn other 
skills first.

Each class has a unique set of skills. Some abilities can only be acquired 
through skills, and powers have skill requirements before characters can 
learn them. Some weapons can only be used by characters who have learned 
certain skills.

Skills Hotkey:
* Specialties Tab: P


Lesson 24: Upgrading Skills
---------------------------
When a character earns a new skill point, a plus icon appears over his 
portrait. When a character has skills points available to spend, a smaller 
plus icon appears in the lower left of his portrait. LEFT-CLICKING either 
icon opens the Specialties tab in the Character Window.

If you place the point over a skill that you do not meet all the requirements 
for, any skill that you still need to upgrade will flash green.

If you meet the requirements to upgrade a skill and have a skill point to 
spare, LEFT-CLICK the skill to assign a point to it. You can assign up to 20 
points to a skill. To unassign an unconfirmed skill point, RIGHT-CLICK a 
skill.

Assigning skill points does not automatically upgrade skills! You must LEFT-
CLICK the Confirm button to lock in your upgrades permanently Unconfirmed 
skill point assignments will be reset if you LEFT-CLICK the Reset button or 
leave the Specialties tab.

The number of points that you have left to spend is displayed at the bottom 
of the Specialties tab.


Lesson 25: Saving and Loading Single-Player Games
-------------------------------------------------
When you save your game, all information about your character and the world 
is saved, including experience, equipment, monsters killed and quests 
completed. When you load a game, the party returns to the nearest major town.

To save your game, press ESC and then LEFT-CLICK Save Game. You may also save 
your game by pressing CTRL+S.

To continue your most recently saved Single Player saved gamed, LEFT-CLICK 
the Continue option from the Main menu. You can also choose a party from the 
Single Player menu to play your last saved game for that party.

Any tombstones from dead party members that were in the world when you last 
saved appear in town next to your party when you load the game.

Save Hotkey:
* Save Game: CTRL+S


Lesson 26: Item Shops
---------------------
There are many different shops in Aranna that sell a variety of goods, 
including weapons, armor, spells and potions. To shop, talk to a shopkeeper 
and ask to see their wares.

The Shop window will appear next to the Character Window of your primarily 
selected character. To shop with a different character, LEFT-CLICK his 
portrait. The Shop window has tabs for the different types of items that the 
shopkeeper sells. LEFT-CLICK the arrows at the top of each tab to see more 
items for sale.

Place the pointer over items to see their sell price. To sell an item, DRAG 
it from your Inventory to the store. To buy an item, DRAG it from the store 
to your Inventory. If you don't have enough gold, you won't be able to buy an 
item.

To quickly sell or buy an item, hold down CTRL and LEFT-CLICK the item in 
your Inventory or in the store.

When you sell an item to the shop, it immediately appears in the shopkeeper's 
Inventory. For a short time you can change your mind and buy it back for the 
same price you sold it for. Shopkeepers update their Inventory periodically, 
so if you see an item you really want, you should try to buy it right away.

As your party grows stronger, the items offered by shopkeepers improve. If 
you didn't find anything you needed the last time you went shopping, check 
again later.

Shopping Hotkey:
* Instantly Buy or Sell and Item: CTRL + LEFT-CLICK an item


Lesson 27: Enhancement and Curse Spells
---------------------------------------
Nature Mages can learn enhancement spells, including Embrace and Wrath spells, 
that can increase your party's abilities. Combat Mages can learn Curse spells 
that weaken the abilities of your enemies. Your enemies can also enhance each 
other and curse you!

Small icons appear on your characters' portraits if they have been enhanced 
or cursed or have summoned a creature. Place your pointer over these icons to 
see the name of the spell and the time remaining until it fades.

A character can be affected by at most two enhancement spells and one curse, 
and they can summon only one creature at a time. If you want to summon a new 
creature or cast a different enhancement, you must remove a beneficial spell 
first.

To remove an enhancement from a character or dismiss their summoned creature, 
open that character's Inventory tab and LEFT-CLICK the View button to show 
the Character Viewer. The icons for any spells affecting the character are 
displayed here. RIGHT-CLICK a beneficial spell's icon to remove the spell.


Lesson 28: Reagents and Enchanting Items
----------------------------------------
Reagents are items such as animal teeth or gemstones that have absorbed 
magical energy from the world. Each reagent has different magical properties, 
according to its nature. Enchanters can weave the magic from reagents into 
existing weapons and armor, creating an object with unique abilities. All 
major towns have an enchanter who uses reagents to enchant items--for a price.

Reagents come in all shapes and sizes. Place the pointer over a reagent to 
see what enchantment it grants and what types of items it can be applied to.

Only non-magical items of good quality or better can be enchanted. Speak to 
an enchanter and place the item you wish to enchant in its item slot to see 
its reagent grid.

Item quality determines how much space there is for reagents on that item:

* Good Items--2x2
* Great Items--3x2
* Exceptional Items--3x3
* Legendary Items--4x4

To create an enchanted item, arrange the desired reagents in the reagent grid, 
and then LEFT-CLICK the Enchant Item button. The cost to enchant an item is 
based on the quality of the item and the number and power of reagents you 
wish to combine with it.


Lesson 29: Teleporters
----------------------
In your journeys through Aranna, you will come across networks of ancient 
teleporters, once used to travel across the world but now in poor repair. 
Your party can use them to instantly travel to locations they've previously 
visited.

Approach a teleporter to activate it or LEFT-CLICK it to open a list of 
teleport locations that you can travel to.  DOUBLE-CLICK a location or select 
a location and then LEFT-CLICK OK to teleport there.

You can teleport back to the nearest town by casting the Summon Teleporter 
spell, which creates a limited-use, two-way teleporter. Activate the 
teleporter by LEFT-CLICKING it to teleport back to town.

Teleporters expire when your party creates a new teleporter, or when all 
character that teleported to town have teleported back to the field through 
the teleporter.


Lesson 30: The Storage Vault
----------------------------
The storage vault is a chest located next to the teleporter in every large 
town. Your party can use the storage vault to store items that they don't 
want to carry, but don't want to sell.

The contents of the storage vault are the same in every town, and are saved 
with other party data.

To open the storage vault, LEFT-CLICK on the vault chest. The Storage Vault 
window appears in the same location as the Store window. The Inventory of the 
primary selected character is also displayed.

You can DRAG items between your character's Inventory and the storage vault, 
or hold down CTRL and LEFT-CLICK items in the storage vault or your 
character's Inventory to transfer them instantly, just like shopping.

You can select a different character while the storage vault is open by LEFT-
CLICKING his portrait; this allows you to manage multiple character 
Inventories without closing the storage vault.


Lesson 31: Death and Unconsciousness
------------------------------------
When a character loses all his health, he falls unconscious--his portrait 
gradually fills with red to indicate how far below zero health he has fallen.

An unconscious character regenerates normally and can be healed by magic. 
When his health rises above zero, he regains consciousness.

If an unconscious character takes enough damage to fill his portrait entirely 
with red, he dies. His portrait turns gray.

Dead characters do not regenerate and cannot be healed. They must be 
resurrected with a spell or a scroll. Resurrection scrolls can be purchased 
at the magic shop in town.


Lesson 32: Party Death
----------------------
If every character in your party dies or is knocked unconscious, the entire 
party dies and may respawn in a safe place, such as a town. If you choose to 
respawn, all of your party's equipped items and 25% of their gold will remain 
at the spot where they died, marked by a tombstone.

To recover their gear, the party must travel to where they died and approach 
their tombstones. When they are close enough, they will automatically reequip 
all the gear they can and place the rest in their Inventories.

If a character's Inventory is too full to retrieve all his gear, the 
remaining items will stay on his tombstone until he can make room for them. 
When all his equipment has been retrieved, his tombstone disappears.

If you choose, you can talk to a member of the Guild of Death, who can 
instantly warp your tombstones to town. He will keep the gold that the party 
dropped, but you will be able to retrieve your equipped items.

If you save and reload the game, the Guild of Death automatically warps your 
tombstones to town, and keeps the dropped gold.


Lesson 33: Hiring Companions and the Inn
----------------------------------------
Throughout your adventure, you'll encounter heroes who can join your party. 
It is your choice whether to take them with you; many are skilled fighters, 
and they may have skills that will complement your party.

You can't invite someone to join your party if you don't have an available 
party slot. You start with enough slots for two characters, and you may 
purchase more from the innkeeper at any major town.

If you decide that you no longer need a companion's company, open his 
Character Window and LEFT-CLICK the Disband Character button in the upper 
left of the window. Disbanded characters will return to the inn and will not 
gain experience while they are not in your party.

You can rehire disbanded characters by talking to the innkeeper at any major 
town. The innkeeper will show you a list of former companions and pets. LEFT-
CLICK the View button to see their statistics, and LEFT-CLICK the Add button 
to add them to your party.


Lesson 34: Managing Party Inventories
-------------------------------------
It is possible to view and manage the Inventories of the entire party at once. 
Press V to open the Inventories of all party members. DRAG items between 
character Inventories to trade, or DRAG an item to a Character Portrait to 
give the item to that character.

If multiple character Inventories are open, hold down CTRL and LEFT-CLICK an 
item in a character's Inventory to transfer it to the next character without 
dropping the item on the ground. This is a handy tool for rearranging items 
quickly.

You can still RIGHT-CLICK to equip gear from a character's Inventory Panel, 
even if multiple Inventories are open.

To close a single character's Inventory, LEFT-CLICK the X button in the 
upper-right corner of her Character Window, or hold down CTRL and LEFT-CLICK 
her portrait. You can also hold down CTRL and LEFT-CLICK a portrait to open 
an additional character's Inventory.

Party Inventory Hotkeys:
* Open Multiple Character Inventories: V
* Transfer Item to Another Party Member: CTRL and LEFT-CLICK the item


Lesson 35: Adventuring: Health and Mana Bushes
----------------------------------------------
Following the great cataclysm, as the newly formed web of ley lines spread 
across Aranna, small trickles of magical energy rose to the surface.

In some places, the flow was strong enough to create a permanent upwelling. 
Any plants growing in those places eventually take on magical properties of 
their own, becoming reservoirs of either health or mana replenishing energy.

Some adventurers have mastered the art of harvesting the energy from these 
bushes in the form of berries that can restore health or mana, like potions. 
Rangers harvest health bushes by specializing in the Survival skill, while 
Nature Mages harvest mana bushes by specializing in the Natural Bond skill.


Lesson 36: Adventuring: Incantation Shrines
-------------------------------------------
Incantation shrines are mysterious structures that stand on nodes of magical 
power. By standing in the shrine and reciting a chant, your party can draw 
upon that magical energy for temporary bonuses.

Incantation shrines are circular stone structures with five pillars, marked 
with runes and glowing with an eldritch blue light. When a character stands 
inside, the glow intensifies, indicating that a chant can be used.

To recite a chant, open the Chants page on the Lore tab of your Journal. 
Select a chant and then LEFT-CLICK the Recite Chant button in the lower right 
of the Journal.

You can also recite a chant directly. Open the chat interface by pressing 
ENTER, type the chant, and then press ENTER again.

There are many ways to learn chants. You can learn some chants from wise 
teachers, and others are written in tomes or on scraps of paper in long-
forgotten dungeons. When you learn a chant, it is added to the Chants page of 
the Journal's Lore tab.


Lesson 37: Adventuring: Sanctuary Doors
---------------------------------------
The origin of the traveler's sanctuaries remains shrouded in mystery. These 
small treasure rooms locked behind magical doors serve as a welcome boon to 
any traveler able to access them. They are usually found along the old trade 
routes within ruins of ancient civilizations--remote, dangerous regions where 
only adventurers dare to tread.

Each sanctuary door can only be opened by a character sufficiently skilled in 
a certain class; the necessary class is marked with an icon on the door. If 
you place the pointer over the door, the Status Bar at the top of the screen 
will display the level and class required to open it.

To open the sanctuary door, select a character with a high enough level in 
the necessary skill, equip him with the appropriate type of weapon or spell, 
and direct him to attack the door.


Lesson 38: Adventuring: Rare Items
----------------------------------
Most magical items in Aranna have only one or two modifiers, but some were 
forged by exceptionally skilled mages or under particularly intense 
circumstances. These rare items can have up to four modifiers, and are 
especially valuable to adventurers. These items' names are displayed in light 
blue.

Adventurers may also find lost magical relics. These weapons and pieces of 
armor once belonged to the legendary heroes of Aranna's past, and often carry 
a fragment of a hero's essence with them.

Some increase in power when combined with other items that once belonged to 
the same hero. These 'set' and 'unique' items are the most powerful tools in 
an adventurer's arsenal. Set item names are yellow, and unique items names 
are purple.


Lesson 39: Adventuring: War Pedestals
-------------------------------------
The origin of the war pedestals remains shrouded in mystery. These strange 
monuments are scattered throughout the ruins of Aranna and are avoided by 
most travelers.

Unknown to many, the war pedestals house magic that those with good hearts 
can use to instantly recover their powers.

To activate a war pedestal, RIGHT-CLICK it to attack it with your active 
character. This will release the pedestal's magic, and the active character 
will instantly recover his powers and will be able to use them again 
immediately.


Lesson 40: Adventuring: Monster Hatreds
---------------------------------------
Every time a character does something to oppose a monster, such as attacking 
it or healing his companions, the monster will become angry.

Normally, monsters attack whatever target is easiest for them to reach, but 
if a character makes it especially angry it will flare red with anger and 
attack only that character. Clever parties can use monster anger to their 
advantage.

Some monsters have hatreds--certain actions that make them particularly angry. 
When attacking a monster, look for information about its hatreds in its 
Health Bar at the top of the screen. Avoid performing that action with your 
character unless you want to make the monsters so angry that they attack him!

Some powers, such as Provoke and Summon Provoke, can instantly make monsters 
angry at the character of your choice. Use these powers to keep monsters away 
from vulnerable party members.


Lesson 41: Hiring Pets
----------------------
Pets are special non-humanoid party members that can help you on your journey. 
They cannot learn skills or wear gear, but you can customize them by feeding 
them items, and they can learn special powers that your other party members 
cannot.

Your pets will get more powerful as your party increases in levels, but they 
don't earn experience. Unlike your other party members, a pet's level is 
always equal to your hero's level, even if it is disbanded and rehired later 
on.

A pet's stats grow according to its level.

You can purchase pets at pet shops. Pet shops exist in each town, and new 
pets become available in the pet shops as the party discovers them along 
their journey. Speak to a pet seller to see a list of the pets they sell. 
LEFT-CLICK the Details button to show the abilities and stats of each pet. 
LEFT-CLICK the Buy button to add the selected pet to your party.

When you disband a pet from your party, you can choose whether to send it to 
the inn or release it into the wild. Released pets are gone forever. If you 
send your pet to the inn, you can talk to the innkeeper to get it back in 
your party. You can also release your pets into the wild from the inn.


Lesson 42: Powering Up Pets
---------------------------
You can feed pets items to increase their maturity. The more expensive an 
item you feed them, the more they grow. To feed an item to a pet, DRAG the 
item to the Character Viewer on your pet's Inventory tab.

LEFT-CLICK the pet's Development tab to see its stats. Pets can gain bonuses 
depending on the items your feed them:

* Fighter weapons give a large strength increase.
* Ranged weapons give a large dexterity increase.
* Mage weapons and spells give a large intelligence increase.
* Fighter armor increases armor and adds a little strength.
* Ranger armor increases armor and adds a little dexterity.
* Mage armor increases armor and adds a little intelligence.
* Potions increase health and mana.
* Reagents, rings and amulets give a small bonus to everything.


Lesson 43: Pet Emanations and Powers
------------------------------------
Your pet can learn an emanation or power at certain maturity levels. Each pet 
has a unique power and emanation. Pets learn their power when they have eaten 
enough items to reach juvenile maturity and their emanation when they become 
fully mature.

Pet powers are used the same way as character powers. To learn more about a 
pet's power, place the pointer over the Power icon on the pet's Development 
tab.

And emanation is a powerful aura that grants a bonus to all character's 
within a certain radius of the pet. Each type of pet grants a different bonus 
with their emanation.

To learn more about a pet's emanation, place the pointer over the Emanations 
icon on the pet's Development tab. Emanation bonuses from the same type of 
pet don't combine.


Lesson 44: Saving and Loading Multiplayer Games
-----------------------------------------------
Your multiplayer party--including all experience and equipment data--is 
periodically saved as you play a multiplayer game. No information about the 
world is saved, however, unless you save the session.

To exit and save your party data only, press ESC and then LEFT-CLICK Save and 
Exit.

To save your party and the current session, press ESC and then LEFT-CLICK 
Save Session. World data, such as quests completed and monsters killed, is 
saved along with your party's information.

When you start a multiplayer game, you can start at the beginning of the game 
or load a saved session. To load a saved session, select it from the list of 
saved sessions in the host's Game Options window.


=============
[5.2] Potions
=============

There are three types of potions in five sizes. Potions restore either health, 
or mana or both. Smaller potions restore health and/or mana very slowly, 
while the largest potions restore points very quickly.

* Health Potions - restore health
  - Small: restores 125 health, very slow restoration rate
  - Normal: restores 250 health, slow restoration rate
  - Large: restores 450 health, medium restoration rate
  - Super: restores 700 health, fast restoration rate
  - Colossal: restores 1,100 health, very fast restoration rate

* Health Potions - restore mana
  - Small: restores 150 mana, very slow restoration rate
  - Normal: restores 300 mana, slow restoration rate
  - Large: restores 500 mana, medium restoration rate
  - Super: restores 900 mana, fast restoration rate
  - Colossal: restores 1,400 mana, very fast restoration rate

* Rejuvenation Potions - restore both health and mana
  - Small: restores 125 health and 150 mana, very slow rejuvenation rate
  - Normal: restores 250 health and mana, slow rejuvenation rate
  - Large: restores 450 health and mana, medium rejuvenation rate
  - Super: restores 700 health and mana, fast rejuvenation rate
  - Colossal: restores 1,100 health and mana, very fast rejuvenation rate

Whenever you click the Drink Health potion button (lower left of your screen) 
or press 'H', all characters with less than 100% health will drink as much 
potion as required to restore their health. Similarly, clicking the Drink 
Mana potion button or pressing 'M' causes all characters with less than 100% 
mana to drink as much as needed to restore their mana.

Since characters only drink as much as is needed from a bottle, you will find 
partially filled bottles in your inventory. Drag a partial bottle over 
another partial bottle to combine them.

Potions in Inventory are shared. If a character does not have the proper type 
of potion in his or her own Inventory, he or she will simply use one from 
another character's Inventory.

When drinking the smaller potions, be sure not to wait until health or mana 
is completely gone, or it may be too late. When your Inventory is occupied by 
small or normal potions, it is probably best to use the Drink commands when 
characters reach about 50% health or mana.

Characters with the ranged skill, Survival, can harvest health potions from 
health bushes. Simply walk into the glowing red bush with your character and 
the potions will appear on the ground:

Survival Skill - Size of potions
 1 - 4         - Small
 5 - 8         - Normal
 9 - 11        - Large
12 - 15        - Super
16 - 19        - Colossal
20             - Colossal x 2

Characters with the nature magic skill, Natural Bond, can harvest mana 
potions from mana bushes. Simply walk into the glowing blue bush with your 
character and the potions will appear on the ground:

Natural Bond Skill - Size of potions
 1 - 4             - Small
 5 - 8             - Normal
 9 - 11            - Large
12 - 15            - Super
16 - 19            - Colossal
20                 - Colossal x 2


============
[5.3] Chants
============

Chants are used at incantation shrines to grant bonuses to all characters 
inside the shrine. Step into the shrine and either:

Open your Journal, open the Lore tab, open the Chants tab, select a chant and 
then LEFT-CLICK the Recite Chant button; or,

Open the chat bar by pressing ENTER and then type the chant (not case-
sensitive) and press ENTER to activate the shrine.

**NOTE**
You cannot use a chant until it has been added to your journal. If you try to 
manually enter a chant by typing in the words from this list, and you have 
not yet discovered that chant during gameplay, nothing will happen. This only 
applies to Merc level. At Veteran and Elite, you can use any Chant you 
learned in previous difficulties.

All shrine effects are temporary. Chants are listed in the order in which 
they appear in your journal.

[5.6] Weapon Suffixes and Prefixes
==================================

Dungeon Siege established a treasure system where magic bonuses attached to 
items are dependent on the name of the item. DS2 continues this tradition.

===============
[5.8] Item Sets
===============

Items sets are special groups of matched equipment that provide additional 
bonuses if you equip two or more items from the same set. Most of the sets 
are intended for specific specializations within each class; however, that 
does not preclude other specialties from using the equipment. For example, a 
dual-wielder could wear the Fire King's helmet and armor, even if he wasn't 
going to use the two-handed maul that goes with the set.

Some sets include only non-weapon items, these are listed as "Armor Sets" 
(even though they may not contain any armor). There are also a few sets that 
are general-purpose sets useable by any class. They are listed under 
Miscellaneous Sets. Sets are broken down by the specialty for which they are 
intended and are listed in ascending order of average level for the equipment. 
Thus Night's Shadow (low level dual-wield) is listed before Furious Tempest 
(high level dual-wield).

Also note that Armor bonuses are already included in the Armor rating. So, 
for example, Nightspirit shows Armor 28 and +12 Armor. The +12 is already 
included in the 28 figure, so the gloves provide a total of 28 armor, not 40.

=====================
[6.1] Character Races
=====================

Human:
* 2 Unspent skill points
* +2 Strength
* +1 Dexterity
* +1 Intelligence
* +10% chance to find magic items

Humans are the jack-of-all-trades race in DS2. With small bonuses in all 
three ability scores and no preset skills, humans can easily excel at any 
class. (You get to spend the two skill points at the first character level 
increase.) Human should be the race of choice if you do not know beforehand 
what class you want to be...or you just don't like the look of the other 
races. Humans have no specific strength other than they neither have any 
specific weakness. Human characters can be either male or female.


Dryad:
* 1 point in Natural Bond
* 1 point in Dodge
* -2 Strength
* +4 Dexterity
* +2 Intelligence
* +10% Death Magic resistance
* Only female

Dryads excel at archery and can also do well at magic. Dryads will not be 
good fighters at low levels. A Dryad character can, from the begining of the 
game, harvest mana bushes for additional mana potions with the 1 point in 
Natural Bond skill. Dryads also automatically receive 1 point in Dodge, which 
allows characters to have a chance to dodge physical damage. You can only 
play as a female Dryad.


Elf:
* 1 point in Critical Strike
* 1 point in Brilliance
* +1 Dexterity
* +3 Intelligence
* +5% mana recovery

An elf can work well in any class; but, they are really geared towards being 
mages, especially combat mages. While they start with Critical Strike in the 
melee skill tree, they have no Strength bonus to help them fight. They do get 
a nice Intelligence boost and the Brilliance combat magic skill. And, of 
course, they could also go ranged with their +1 Dexterity. In short, elves 
are almost as versatile as humans. Elf characters can be either male or 
female.


Half-Giant:
* 2 points in Fortitude
* +6 Strength
* -2 Dexterity
* +5% health regeneration
* Only male

Half-giants are designed to be fighters and should be the first choice of any 
player that just wants to get down-and-dirty with enemies. They are natural 
tanks, poor at archery and just average at magic. You can only play as a male 
half-giant.

While each race has its strengths, these strengths mainly come into play only 
in the early game. By Chapter 5 of Act I, your primary ability score will 
have risen into the 40s or 50s. By Act III, expect your primary ability score 
to be around 200. Thus, the starting differential in ability scores rather 
quickly becomes statistically insignificant. Choose your race based on what 
you think looks best--after all, you're going to be staring at your avatar 
for the next 30 to 40 hours...


==============================
[6.2] Classes, Skills & Powers
==============================

There are four primary classes in DS2:
* Melee Combat (fighter)
* Ranged Combat (ranger)
* Combat Mage
* Nature Mage

For each class there is a related ability score:
* Strength for fighter
* Dexterity for ranger
* Intelligence for mages

When you use a particular type of attack, your level in that class increases 
as does the related stat. Thus, if you spend a lot of time shooting a bow, 
your ranger class level and dexterity will both increase rapidly. Non-related 
ability scores will also increase, but much more slowly than the related 
ability. Other classes will not increase at all unless you switch to that 
class' type of attack.

Versatility in one character is not highly prized nor useful in Dungeon Siege 
2. Pick a class and focus on it. Most classes can benefit from a few levels 
in related classes in order to get good skills; however, you'll find being a 
true multi-classed character in DS2 is just a recipe for disaster.

Decide in advance what class you want to follow and stick with it. Early in 
the game, there's really not much point in adding a few extra levels of other 
classes. Variety of abilities is why you can have up to a six-member party, 
so don't try to turn your character into a jack-of-all-trades.

Later in the game, or early in Veteran difficulty, you might want to add a 
few levels of another class in order to get access to some basic skills from 
that class. For example, all classes can benefit from Dodge (requires Ranger 
1), Survival (Requires Ranger 5) and Fortitude (requires Fighter 1). Nature 
Mages should pick up points in Brilliance (requires Combat Mage 1) and Combat 
Mages should pick up points in Natural Bond (requires Nature Mage 1). 
Summoners (Nature Mages concentrating in summoning) can benefit from 12 
levels of Combat Mage for access to Summon Alacrity.

You can see your class levels, your progress toward your next level, your 
ability scores and your progress to an ability score increase on the 
Inventory tab of your Character Window.

For each character, there is also a character level. Your character level 
increases as you gain experience from killing monsters. It is not directly 
related to your class levels. Each time your character level increases, you 
gain 1 skill point to spend on the skills shown on the Specialties tab of the 
Character Window. You can see your current character level and your progress 
toward your next level on the Character Window. You can also see your 
character level progress bar next to your character portrait. 

Each class has skill paths that can increase the power of the character with 
specific types of attacks. For example, combat mages can focus skill points 
in fire, lightning or death magic. The types of skills you buy determine the 
types of hero powers you receive.


[6.2.1] Fighter
---------------
Skill Paths:
* Weapon + Shield
* Two-handed Weapon
* Dual Wield (two one-handed weapons)

The weapon + shield fighter is your basic tank that sacrifices damage 
potential for extra defense. A common use for such a warrior is to send him 
into the middle of a mob and use his Provoke power to cause the monsters to 
focus their attacks on him. While he's standing there taking the hits--which 
aren't doing much damage because of his extra armor rating--rangers and 
casters can stand around picking off the mobs.

Both two-handed weapon and dual wielding fighters are damage-dealers that 
can't take quite as much punishment as a weapon + shield tank. The primary 
difference between the two--other than style--is two-handed weapon fighters 
have powers focused on stunning enemies, while dual-wielding skills and 
powers are focused on increasing the number of attacks. Also, a two-handed 
weapon wielder will get more mileage from front-loaded powers, such as brutal 
attack.

[6.2.2] Ranger
--------------
Skill Paths:
* Bow/Crossbow
* Throwing Weapons

While bows and crossbows seem to be quite different weapons, they share the 
same skill tree and have roughly equal damage output. Crossbows do more 
damage per strike, but have a slower rate of fire. If you're depending on 
front-loaded powers or skills, you'll want a crossbow to maximize damage. If 
you're depending on fast attacks, you'll want to use a bow for increased fire 
rate. Overall, of two weapons of equal level, the bow is more likely to have 
a higher DPS rating.

The other main skill path for rangers is thrown weapons. Thrown weapon 
mastery leads to skills and powers that are able to affect multiple enemies 
with one throw.

In addition to their ranged weapon skills, rangers also get access to a 
couple of defensive skills, Dodge and Survival. Survival also allows rangers 
to harvest health potions from health bushes. The higher the level of 
Survival, the larger the potions harvested.

[6.2.3] Combat Mage
-------------------
Skill Paths:
* Fire Magic
* Lightning Magic
* Death Magic

Combat mages are damage-dealers. Almost all their spells are focused at 
hurting the enemy. Even their beneficial (buffing) spells work by draining 
the power from enemies. Combat mages also have curses (de-buffs), which can 
be quite effective. Drown and Infect, especially, work well on low-level mobs 
as you can kill the mobs just with the curse.

Combat mages can also summon creatures, but, on the whole, these are weaker 
than a nature mage's summons. Of the three destructive elements dealt by 
combat mages, fire is probably the most versatile as few enemies are 
resistant to it. On the other hand, while a lot of enemies are resistant to 
death magic, that line has the best powers (Corrosive Eruption, especially). 
Using Infect to weaken resistances can make a necromancer quite potent.

[6.2.4] Nature Mage
-------------------
Skill Paths:
* Healing/Buffing
* Summoning
* Ice Magic

Nature mages are largely intended as a support character. They can deal 
massive amounts of damage with ice-based spells; however, there are whole 
areas of the game where all the enemies are resistant to ice damage. (Adding 
a combat mage with the Drown curse in auto-cast helps with this problem.) Ice 
spells are also handy for the Freezing ability, which is a big help against 
mini-bosses.

Regardless of which skill path you choose, you don't want to neglect your 
nature mage's healing and buffing skills (Nurturing Gift, Enveloping Embrace 
and Feral Wrath) and all nature mage's should have one healing and one 
buffing spell or two buffing spells in their auto-cast slots. (Don't auto-
cast summons.) When it comes to powers, Aether Blast is highly destructive, 
though a bit hard to use effectively because you can't directly control your 
summons.

[6.2.5] TMI on Classes, Skills & Powers
---------------------------------------

FIGHTER
If you want to concentrate on melee and use your casters mainly for support 
(combat mage for curses, nature mage for healing/buffs), then a dual-wielder 
or two-handed weapon user is your best bet. Overall, the dual wielder will 
give you more bang for your buck, but complementing him with a two-hander 
would make for devastating melee attacks.

If, on the other hand, you want to concentrate on your casters or ranger, 
leaving your tank as a basic meat shield, then you need to invest in the 
weapon + shield skill line and powers to help keep the mobs off your back. 
The defensive tank works better as a non-active character sent into the midst 
of mobs and forgotten while you micromanage your combat mage or ranger (or 
both). Your healer will help keep the tank alive--assuming he's ever really 
in danger with his ridiculously high armor ratings.

A fighter would do well to take a level of ranger early on, to pick up the 
Dodge skill and add to it--especially if she's not going to be using a shield. 
Five levels of ranger would allow your fighter to level up the Survival skill, 
which not only provides good elemental resistance, but will also let your 
tank harvest health bushes, so you can do without a ranger.


RANGER
While there are no separate skill trees for bows and crossbows, they are 
quite different in use--especially the powers you will use with them. Powers 
that add a large amount of damage per shot, such as Charged Shots, work 
better with a bow and its increased rate of fire. Powers that add percentages 
to single shots, such as Take Aim or Thunderous Shot, work better with a 
crossbow and its increased damage per strike.

Thrown weapons are more of a toss-up*. There's obviously some Xena, Warrior 
Princess, vibe running through the skill tree--especially Richochet. The 
primary goal for throwing weapon rangers is hitting multiple enemies, so 
Shrapnel Blast and Ricochet should be prime targets on your list of powers 
and skills. The big disadvantage to thrown weapons is the shorter range, 
which puts your more lightly armored ranger near the heat of battle.

There also are no good throwing weapons until you get into Elite Difficulty. 
At lower difficulties, bows and crossbows typically dish out more DPS than a 
thrown weapon.

You can do a little multi-classing with your ranger, giving her some nature 
magic levels every once in a while (or starting with about five to ten nature 
mage levels before switching to archery). Your ranger can then act as the 
healer of the party, as well as collect mana potions for the combat caster.

* Yes, the pun was intended.


COMBAT MAGE
Combat mages dish out incredible amounts of damage; thus, they draw 
ridiculous amounts of aggro from the mobs you face. The hardest thing about 
playing with a CM on your team is keeping said CM in an upright and mobile 
state. While your CM may not outright die all that often, they are of no more 
use when unconscious.

The most effective power of the CM is, probably, Corrosive Eruption. At the 
highest level, the exploding corpses of your enemies will create chain 
reactions of exploding corpses that can wipe out large mobs in very short 
order. Conversely, focusing on death magic to get Corrosive Eruption plays 
right into the hands of the DS2 developers--a lot of the more dangerous mobs 
you face are resistant to death magic.

You can counteract this resistance with the Infect curse, but cursing draws 
even more aggro--like you need that. Expect to spend a lot of time fiddling 
with and tweaking your CM's skills and powers. And working like mad to keep 
them conscious during large battles.

Combat mages can also summon critters, but they don't get near as many 
summoning skills as nature mages, and no summons powers, so better not to 
worry with summoning at all.


NATURE MAGE
Nature mages are seen primarily as support personnel; but, don't sell their 
damage-dealing potential short. Powerful summons give you a defacto extra 
party slot for each NM in the group. And Aether Blast is not a power to be 
sneezed at. The only problem with it is you can't directly control a summons, 
so you have to hope mobs will gather round it, ripe for the picking.

Of course, nature mages can also heal and resurrect other party members, 
dispense buffs and dish out a fairly large amount of damage with ice spells. 
If all you really need is a healer, you're probably better off with either a 
dark or light naiad, as they are lower maintenance.

However, nature mages draw considerably less aggro than combat mages, so it 
is easier to keep them on their feet. And the cumulative effect of buffs like 
Spirit Embrace (immunity to curses, among other things) and Wrath of Ice 
(chance to freeze for all your fighters and rangers, among other things) 
cannot be overstated.


HOW TO BUY SKILLS
Skill points are not really at that much of a premium. In addition to the one 
you get each character level, you can earn up to 9 in bonuses from finising 
quests. In Merc difficulty alone, you should end up with over 50 skill points 
to spend. Combine that with lots of bonuses from equipment and factor in the 
diminishing return from higher skill levels and it's actually pretty easy to 
spread skill points around.

Never buy more than 10 ranks in any skill unless you need to do so for a 
power. Power pre-requisites are based on your natural (i.e. non-enhanced) 
skill rank, so if you need Critical Shot 14 for Charged Shots level 3, then 
buy 14 ranks of Critical Shot. However, you should seriously consider not 
raising any Power to level 3 until Veteran difficulty. It won't be that much 
more of a help in Merc, and it will weaken your other skills.

Even though a serious multi-classed character (i.e. melee 30/combat mage 30) 
is not entirely tenable, don't "single-class" your character. IOW, don't make 
your tank S&S only with no points in Overbear or Dual Wield. You might just 
run into situations where more damage would help rather than more armor. 
Conversely, don't deny your dual-wielder the chance to pick up a shield when 
necessary.

Likewise, combat mages need an element to fall back on if their primary 
element isn't working. And any nature mage needs at least a few points put 
into the healing/buffing skills to really aid your party.

Plan out your skill point purchases by deciding which powers you want to use 
and then figuring out the pre-reqs. Buy skill points accordingly. Leftover 
skill points should be put wherever you think they will do the most good: 
increasing damage skills is probably your best bet. The mobs you face 
typically have ten times as much health as you, so you need to whittle them 
down quickly.


MULTI-CLASSING
Small amounts of multi-classing can help any character. What mage couldn't 
use a few ranks in Fortitude (requires Melee 1)? What character of any class 
couldn't benefit from Dodge (Ranged 1) or Survival (Ranged 5)? High level 
nature mages focusing on summons could use some ranks in Summon Alacrity 
(Combat Mage 12). And both Nature Mages and Combat Mages would do well to 
cross train a little bit so they can use both Natural Bond and Brilliance to 
reduce the mana cost of spells while raising their max mana.

For the most part, you won't really have the skill points to spread around to 
other class skills until you reach Vet. However, once you reach Vet, you 
won't be able to buy the 0-level weapons and spells you need to raise an 
untrained class. So, before leaving Merc, buy the necessary items and put 
them in your storage vault to be used later; or, go use them in Merc by 
running through Zaramoth's Horns a few times. You can level up untrained 
classes very quickly--just be sure to multi-class one character at a time 
since you won't be doing much damage with the untrained weaponry or spells.

==============
[7.1] Henchmen
==============

When you first add a henchman to your party, they will be a certain level 
(based on your position in the main story); but, most of their skill points 
are unspent--so you can take them on any skill path you desire. The first two 
henchmen, Deru and Lothar, are such low level they can be leveled in any 
class you desire. Later henchmen are pretty much already set in their class 
path; though, Taar could probably be leveled in a class other than nature 
mage, if you start on it right away.

At Veteran and Elite difficulties, of course, main class levels are so high 
you'll have to keep them in their primary class, only doing a bit of cross 
training for the skills.

Henchmen do not level up if they are not in your party. When you add a 
henchman to your party (either for the first time or re-adding via the Inn), 
he/she will only level up if more than 20 levels less than your PC. If more 
than 20 levels less than your PC, the henchman will level up to 2 levels 
below your PC.


Deru
----
Race:  Dryad
Class: Level 2 ranger, level 1 nature mage
Loc:   Next to Eirulan North Gate at beginning of Act I, Chapter 2
Quest: Deru's Treasure Hunt (Act II, secondary quest #10)

Along with Lothar, Deru is your only choice for companion until Act I, 
Chapter 5. She is set up to play as either a ranger or nature mage; but, 
she's low enough level in both that she can go in any direction you like. 
It's probably not worth making her a fighter, since Lothar is standing nearby. 
Since you can probably wait on Taar to be available in Chapter 5, you should 
only consider her as a ranger or combat mage. If you don't take either Deru 
(or Lothar) as a combat mage now, assuming your character is not, it will be 
a long wait until you can hire one.

In Veteran and Elite difficulties, Deru is a nature mage.


Lothar
------
Race:  Half-giant
Class: Level 2 fighter, level 1 combat mage
Loc:   Next to Eirulan North Gate at beginning of Act I, Chapter 2
Quest: Lothar's Innocence (Act II, secondary quest #9)

Along with Deru, Lothar is your only choice for companion until Act I, 
Chapter 5. He is set up to play as either a fighter or combat mage; but, he's 
low enough level in both that he can go in any direction you like. It's 
probably not worth making him a ranger or nature mage since Deru is standing 
nearby; and you'll get Taar as a nature mage in Chapter 5, so only take him 
if you need a fighter or combat mage. If you don't take either Lothar (or 
Deru) as a combat mage now, assuming your character is not, it will be a long 
wait until you can hire one.

In Veteran and Elite difficulties, Lothar is a combat mage.


Taar
----
Race:  Dryad
Class: Level 8 nature mage
Loc:   Great Hall of Eirulan, available as a companion beginning in Act I,
       Chapter 5
Quest: Taar's Investigation (Act I, secondary quest #9)

Taar removes your Ring of Submission at the end of Act I, Chapter 3 and sends 
you on your Chapter 4 quest. You also end Chapter 4 and begin Chapter 5 by 
speaking to her. During the conversation, you can choose to take her along. 
She's a good support character, but with a total limit of 4 party members at 
Mercenary difficulty level, you may not even want a nature mage on the team. 
At the very least, add her to your party so you can do her side quest, which 
you can do in Chapter 5. Also, Taar is your last chance at a nature mage 
companion, so definitely add her to your party at least once so you can add 
her back through the Inn, if needed.


Vix
---
Race:  Human
Class: Level 12 ranger
Loc:   In a tower between the Narrow Cavern and Upper Kithraya Caverns,
       Act I, Chapter 6
Quest: Vix's Vengeance (Act III, Secondary Quest #9)

You first meet Vix as you're traveling to the Kithraya Caverns. If you blow 
off his offer of help, he'll run off to the Eirulan Inn, so you can pick him 
up whenever you want him. He's a ranger with Quick Draw already, so you can 
keep him around if you're lacking a good ranged fighter in your party.


Sartan
------
Race:  Half-Giant
Class: Level 19 fighter
Loc:   In a pit in the Windstone Fortress, Act I, Chapter 9
Quest: Sartan's Suspicion (Act III, Secondary Quest #7)

By the time Sartan is available, near the end of Act I, you probably already 
have at least one good melee fighter in your party. If not, you should add 
Sartan right away. You might even want to add him as a second or third 
fighter considering the Act I boss is especially weak to melee. Otherwise, 
you can send packing to the Eirulan Inn.


Amren
-----
Race:  Elf
Class: Level 20 ranger
Loc:   At the Aman'lu Inn, beginning in Act II, Chapter 1
Quest: Amren's Vision (Act II, secondary quest #15)

Amren is the third ranger (if you consider Deru a ranger) you meet during 
your travels. As such, you're probably full up on ranged fighters. 
Fortunately, his personal quest involves almost no fighting, so you can leave 
"Spock" at the Inn without worrying he'll lag in levels.


Finala
------
Race:  Elf
Class: Level 22 combat mage
Loc:   You can add her to your party once you complete Act II, Chapter 3
Quest: Finala's Contempt (Act II, secondary quest #16)

Finala is the first (and only) true combat mage you'll meet, though you could 
have leveled either Deru or Lothar in that class. She can be a useful 
addition to your party, but you should note mobs like to pick on the combat 
mage. Make sure she is well-armored. Since her quest involves a lot of 
fighting, it's probably best to keep her around and leveled up.


Eva
---
Race:  Human
Class: Level 29 fighter
Loc:   You rescue her at the end of Act II, Chapter 6
Quest: Evangeline's Folly (Act II, secondary quest #18)

Evangeline is set up as a dual wielding fighter, but has enough unspent skill 
points that you can take her in any direction. Of course, by this point in 
the game, you're probably well set for melee companions, so you may only want 
her around for her quest, which you can do right after freeing her.
 

==========
[7.2] Pets
==========

Most pets can simply be purchased from a pet seller in town. The dire wolf, 
mythrilhorn and light naiad require the completion of specific quests before 
you can purchase one. All pets go through six stages of development. They 
start as a baby, then grow to fledgling, juvenile, adolescent, young adult 
and finally reach mature.

Once a pet reaches maturity, they will no longer grow. Pets begin with an 
attack (which may be a spell) and four have another spell they can cast. The 
four pets with a separate spell--dark/light naiads (healing), lap dragon 
(buffing) and necrolithid (curse)--will autocast their spells.

When a pet reaches the juvenile stage, it will gain a power, which works just 
like character powers. At maturity, the pet receives an emanation, which is 
some type of bonus (or buff) applied to the pet and all within a certain 
radius.

Pets grow by eating, and what they like to eat is the loot you collect. The 
more valuable the swag you stuff down their throats, the faster they will 
grow. They will also receive various bonuses to their stats and abilities 
based on what you feed them. For a list, see Handbook Lesson #42.

Pets are always the same level as your player character. In order to progress 
to different stages of development, pets (and, by extension, your PC) must be 
a certain level. (Noted as Level Req in the pet stats.) Pets count as their 
listed class for the purpose of opening sanctuary doors.
 

Dark Naiad
----------
Cost:      1,375 gold
Class:     Nature Mage
Weapon:    Duskbeam, "night energy" beam (death magic?), costs mana
Spell:     Fade Wounds
Power:     Arboreal Rejuvenation, casts healing/resurrecting magic in
           radius around naiad; Normal Recharge
Emanation: Regeneration, increases health regeneration of companions
Acquired:  Purchase from Aman'lu and Kalrathia pet stores
Level Req: Baby - 20, Fledgling - 22, Juvenile - 25,
           Adolescent - 27, Young Adult - 30, Mature - 32

The dark naiad (and its cousin, the light naiad) are the only healing pets in 
the game. Dark naiads are small, fairy-like creatures with OK attacks, a 
healing spell that bounces from target-to-target and a healing power and 
emanation. They make a capable replacement for a nature mage, but you lose 
out on the summoning/buffing ability of the mage. The dark naiad has lower 
level requirements for maturation than the light naiad and is available at a 
much earlier level.
 

Dire Wolf
---------
Cost:      500 gold
Class:     Fighter
Weapon:    Bite
Spell:     n/a
Power:     Furious Howl, cone-effect sonic damage; Normal Recharge
Emanation: Vicious Counter, 60% physical damage reflected to enemy
Acquired:  Complete the Dire Wolf quest in Act I (Secondary Quest #9), then
           purchase from any pet seller
Level Req: Baby - 8, Fledgling - 10, Juvenile - 13,
           Adolescent - 15, Young Adult - 18, Mature - 20

The dire wolf is your first really good pet, and makes an excellent addition 
to your team. It's at least as good as any tank character, and can hold its 
own in the thick of battle. If you're looking for a pet, this one is hard to 
beat until you get much later in the game.
 

Fire Elemental
--------------
Cost:      1,000 gold
Class:     Combat Mage
Weapon:    Firestrike, costs mana
Spell:     n/a
Power:     Inferno, cone effect fire attack; Normal Recharge
Emanation: Fire Resistance, increases fire and magic damage resistance
           of companions
Acquired:  Purchase from Aman'lu and Kalrathia pet stores
Level Req: Baby - 20, Fledgling - 22, Juvenile - 25,
           Adolescent - 27, Young Adult - 30, Mature - 32

The fire elemental is similar to its cousin, the ice elemental. Very good 
when facing enemies that are not resistant to fire, not so good otherwise. 
Their powers duplicate combat mages specializing in fire, but they are less 
versatile than such mages. Their emanation is easily duplicated with good 
equipment.

 
Ice Elemental
-------------
Cost:      500 gold
Class:     Nature Mage
Weapon:    Icestrike, costs mana
Spell:     n/a
Power:     Frost Aura, ice damage + freezing to nearby enemies;
           Normal Recharge
Emanation: Ice Resistance, increases ice resistance and mana regeneration
           of companions
Acquired:  Purchase at any pet seller
Level Req: Baby - 3, Fledgling - 6, Juvenile - 9,
           Adolescent - 12, Young Adult - 14, Mature - 16

Ice elementals are the combat side of the nature mage. Their attacks are 
focused on ice damage and freezing enemies. Even though nature mage is their 
class, they aren't really a replacement for a nature mage because they have 
no healing, buffing or summoning magic. Their big advantage is their 
emanation, which will essentially keep your mages casting all day long.

 
Lap Dragon
----------
Cost:      2,250 gold
Class:     Nature Mage
Weapon:    Dragon Fire, fireball, costs mana
Spell:     Dragon Scales, party buff: protection from curses, lightning
           resistance, death resistance, increased power recharge rate
Power:     Draconic Inspiration, increases damage of powers; Slow Recharge
Emanation: Dragon Vitality, increases all ability scores
Acquired:  Purchase from Kalrathia pet store
Level Req: Baby - 33, Fledgling - 35, Juvenile - 37,
           Adolescent - 39, Young Adult - 41, Mature - 43

Don't be fooled by its name. A fully mature "lap" dragon is as big as a Half-
giant. Their power, spell and emanation are focused on buffing their 
companions, making them a very good pet. You could build a very good party 
around a naiad (either light or dark), a lap dragon and a mix of rangers and 
fighters. You'll need plenty of mana potions, though, to keep the dragon's 
weapons active.

 
Light Naiad
-----------
Cost:      1,375 gold
Class:     Nature Mage
Weapon:    Duskbeam, "night energy" beam (death magic?), costs mana
Spell:     Fade Wounds
Power:     Arboreal Rejuvenation, casts healing/resurrecting magic in
           radius around naiad; Normal Recharge
Emanation: Regeneration, increases health regeneration of companions
Acquired:  Purchase from Daesthai after beating the tenth, and final, round
           of the Aman'lu Arena
Level Req: Baby - 36, Fledgling - 38, Juvenile - 41,
           Adolescent - 43, Young Adult - 46, Mature - 48

The light naiad (and its cousin, the dark naiad) are the only healing pets in 
the game. Light naiads are small, fairy-like creatures with OK attacks, a 
healing spell that bounces from target-to-target and a healing power and 
emanation. They make a capable replacement for a nature mage, but you lose 
out on the summoning/buffing ability of the mage. As an advantage over the 
dark naiad, the light naiad has magic resistance (20% at maturity) and a more 
powerful Fade Wounds spell (+10% health restored).

 
Mythrilhorn
-----------
Cost:      1,750 gold
Class:     Fighter
Weapon:    Claw Strike
Spell:     n/a
Power:     Enrage, works like fighter power Provoke; Very Fast Recharge
Emanation: Defense Aura, increases party's armor ratings
Acquired:  Purchase from Aman'lu or Kalrathia pet seller after completing
           Mythrilhorn quest (Act II, Secondary Quest #7)
Level Req: Baby - 30, Fledgling - 32, Juvenile - 34,
           Adolescent - 36, Young Adult - 38, Mature - 40

The mythrilhorn takes the place of a shield tank. It has heavy armor (that 
can be increased by feeding it fighter armor), lots of health and a power 
similar to Provoke. Even its normal attacks draw aggro from enemies. Its 
emanation is a big help to mages, who can use all the armor bonus they can 
get. If you need a meat shield and aggro-collector, the mythrilhorn is better 
and lower maintenance than a weapon & shield tank.

 
Necrolithid
-----------
Cost:      2,250 gold
Class:     Combat Mage
Weapon:    Deathstrike, death energy attack, costs mana
Spell:     Necrosis, curse causes enemy armor to weaken
Power:     Decompose, infects enemies, when enemies die, some of their
           essence heals party members; Normal Recharge
Emanation: Mana Steal, party members regenerate mana when they damage enemies
Acquired:  Purchase from Aman'lu and Kalrathia pet stores
Level Req: Baby - 20, Fledgling - 22, Juvenile - 25,
           Adolescent - 27, Young Adult - 30, Mature - 32

The necrolithid is a particularly ugly pet, but has a wide range of useful 
abilities: death magic attack, curse, healing power and mana regeneration 
aura. This pet would be especially handy for a mage-heavy party.
 

Pack Mule
---------
Cost:      300 gold
Class:     Fighter
Weapon:    Strong kick
Spell:     n/a
Power:     Staggering Kick, extra damage and a stunning effect;
           Normal Recharge
Emanation: Reveal Treasure, opens all chests and boxes and breaks all
           containers around mule
Acquired:  Purchase from any pet seller
Level Req: Baby - 3, Fledgling - 5, Juvenile - 7,
           Adolescent - 9, Young Adult - 11, Mature - 13

The pack mule's biggest advantage is its ability to carry stuff. At fledgling 
level, the mule gets an additional page of Inventory (i.e. inventory space 
doubles). At adolescent level, the mule gets a third page (inventory space 
triples). Add to that the fact the mule can fight pretty well, and it becomes 
a valuable resource for pack rats.

You can even use a mule (or mules) as storage vaults--filling up their 
inventories and then disbanding them to the Inn, waiting to be re-added to 
the party whenever you need your stuff. However, the mule's emanation is 
pretty weak, unless you're lazy, and...well, they just don't look as cool as 
the other pets.
 

Scorpion Queen
--------------
Cost:      350 gold
Class:     Ranger
Weapon:    Scorpion Sting
Spell:     n/a
Power:     Explosive Sting, an AoE ranged attack; Normal Recharge
Emanation: Evasion Aura, increase companions' chance to dodge attacks
Acquired:  Purchase from any pet seller
Level Req: Baby - 3, Fledgling - 6, Juvenile - 9,
           Adolescent - 12, Young Adult - 15, Mature - 18

The scorpion queen is the only ranger pet, as such it has a special place. 
Its thunderous power can be very handy, as is Evasion Aura. As a replacement 
for a ranger, the scorpion lacks a bit in versatility, but makes up for this 
with its emanation and lack of requirement for equipment.
