Battle of Bones

Battle of Bones is the site of a battle from long, long ago. The unfortunate participants have now been raised back to unlife by an evil Necromancer, Jialden, and you must kill him to send them back to their rest.

This place is very easy for an Adept and I'd suggest that a well-equipped Medium could deal with everything but Jialden himself. Most of the mobs range from 10K to 40K per kill. Groups of skeletons roam the landscape (typically one Captain and two warriors) and each Hollow in the Bones (Hb) has two Skeletal Archers in who'll take pot shots at you if you're in an adjacent room. Where an exit from a room is marked with a '*', going out of that exit will bring you back into the same room.

Th Necromancer himself can be found in the centre of the zone, at the Battle Center (Bt). To get to him you have to go up the ramp at Under the Northern Side of the Structure (Ns) and move round the rampart to the South Side Of The Structure (Ss). To do so you'll have tyo defeat one of two Bone Golems waiting at the South-Western and South-Eastern sides of the structure.

In the Battle Center (Bt) you'll find Jialden, four Homonculus and a skeletal warrior. Jialden the Necromancer is sanced so you'll need to dispel him first really. I found that I could summon the Homonculi away and kill them one at a time before rushing in, dispelling Jialden and keeping him bashed. Otherwise you can't bash him and he'll cast A LOT.

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 4s2w5n6w3s8wswsw4s4wnws4wnwn. You must be flying to use this route.
