The Shattered Mirror

The Shattered mirror is clearly aimed at higher level players. I wouldn't come here until you're at least Expert or you're with an experienced Expert/Adept group. There are lots of tough mobs that take patience and preparation to kill here. Thanks go to Fuse, Raeth, Kahil and Varda for helping me out with this zone.

Castle Freitstein is spread over four levels. You walk in on the first floor and have to go up some steps to get to level two. From there the North and South stairwells take you to the other three levels and the wine cellar.

To explore the secret area of the Wine Cellar use 'open shelves' in the Storage Room (Sg) to open the door to the Dusty Tunnel (Dt). You'll find a lot of undead in there but most of them are quite easy to deal with apart from Sollers Vesticus in the Tomb (Tb). He also has a rusty key which unlocks the chest in teh Treasury to the north. Use 'lift tapestry' to open the way there.

There are a number of hidden mobs in this zone, so I'd advise having sense-life cast on you as much as you can. Most of the hidden mobs are quite easy to kill but steal your money but be very careful in the Library (Li) as Kharl von Zaard hides in there and he can really cause you trouble if you're not ready for him. He hits hard - through sanc - and managed to kill Astaroth and then Stibbs shen I went back to get my corpse. He also remembers who's attacked him - even if he's killed you!

The only other puzzle in the area is where Nekrul's armor is. Nekrul can be found in the Private Suite (Ps) beating a young servant girl. Kill him to get a key formed of smoke which opens the door to the Secret Armory (Se) on the First Floor. Use 'unlock door west' and 'open door west' to get there.

To open trapdoor on the roof use 'lift trapdoor' if you're in the North Tower, Roof (Rf) and 'push trapdoor' if you're in the Barracks (Ba) below it.

Finally one last warning. Vrinides in Barbazu's Lair (Bl) is guarded by Kazang, a dragon spawn who is HUGE and breathes fire. Make sure you have protection from fire breath of you'll find yourself in a world of hurt...

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 4s2w5n6w3s8wswsw4s4wnwsw2s3wnw2uswsdswdsws2e2n. You must be flying to use this route.
