The Town of Essembra

I wouldn't recommend Essembra for Newbies or Chumps, but Medium level characters and above should find a nice challenge, good xp and a little gold to keep them happy.

There are a lot of locked doors and objects in Essembra. I'm reliably informed that the area is not finished and so there are three you cannot unlock. The Gates to the Abbey and Manor can't be knocked, doorbashed or picked and the Small box in the West end of the Laboratory (Wd) will remain a mystery until the zone is finished.

All the other doors (bar one) in the zone can be knocked or doorbashed although most hide a single mobe. The one remaining door that cannot be knocked is the door to the Temple Treasury, that can only be opened by the Small key, carried in a sash by Gulmarin Reldacap.

There are two other keys in the area. The Large Key, carried in a sash by the Gondar High Seeker, unlocks the large box in the Center of the Laboratory (Ce) and the Tiny Green Key, carried by the gnomish Gondar high Seeker, unlocks the invisible safe in the Temple Treasury (Tt).

I wasn't attacked without provocation the whole time I was in this zone. Have fun!

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 5edse2s2e3se3ses2e2nen2e3n2es.
