The Lost Glories of Montserrat

Lets get this out of the way from the off. The Lost Glories of Montserrat is not an easy place to be. Unless you're invisible and sneaking you'll be under constant siege from golems, efreets and lizardmen - and that's if you stay in the easy parts of town! I wouldn't recommend you come here unless a tough group of you want a lot of xp fast but, as with everything, it'll be risky.

With that in mind, the only other thing to be wary of above ground is the Sea of Living Fire. If you're flying you can survive above the lake easily but don't think you'll be able to survive inside the unbelievably hot magma. You won't - it's a deathtrap.

All of the locked doors in this zone can be doorbashed or knocked. I looked for keys but could only find one and nearly died getting out of there so I didn't get to see what it was for. Once unlocked, use 'push gate' to open the palace gate and 'push door' to open the doors to the foyer and the armory. To find your way into the sewers you need to 'lift floor' in Centre of the Armory (Ca). Down will take you into the Moldy Sewer Passage (Ms).

If you thought the city was tough you have a real wake-up call entering the sewers. The sewers are populated by Dragonmen. They're tough warriors that breath like dragons!Green dragonmen breath acid, white dragonmen breath cold and blue dragonmen breath electricity. I'd go down there with protection from all the breaths if I were you!

The Centre of the Slimy Sewers (Ce) isn't obvious, but you can move into it from either of Deep Within the Dark Sewers (Dw). I didn't see any dragonmen wandering into the room either so it may be a good place to take a rest. Down ffrom the Center of the Slimy Sewers (Ce) takes you to the Catacombs of the Dragonmen (Ct). The catacombs are chock-a-block with dragonmen and two high priets and two dragonmen generals that are all sanc'd. Take care.

The last area is down from the Catacombs of the Dragonmen (Ct) and it very hard indeed. Two blue dragonmen guards will attack you instantly and did over 200 points of damage to Astaroth through sanc in ONE ROUND. Like I said: tough. I didn't get to look in the Chamber of the Dragonmen Queen but I guarantee it won't be a walk in the park.

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 4s2wn4w4n2w3s8w2n2w2n2ene.
