Myth Drannor

Myth Drannor is an older zone and, although aimed at Experts and Adepts, is less dangerous for the well prepared than many of the newer Adept zones. Even so, a number of very tough mobs await you here including the undead dragon Rauglothgor.

Before you enter the city itself you must cross the Elven court. Keep an eye out for the Poison Giant in the Elven Court (Ec) to the north of the Clearing (Cl). He's one of the toughest mobs in the game and will follow you anywhere you go if you run from him after a fight. To enter the city you'll need the North Gate Key from Doust at the Outpost (Km), he's tough but I managed to take him down with sanc, blade barrier and haste to get the key. There are also two demons in the Dark Clearing, one of whom has the Knight's Key which unlocks the door to the Supply Building (Sb).

Once in the city you'll find it overrun with demons. They range from 12k up to 60k kills, some are sanced and fireshielded and almost all of the bigger ones cast spells. You should also beware of the Death Trap (marked DT on the map) to the east of Gold Avenue (Ga). There's a hidden room to the east of the Ruined House (Rh). Use 'lift fireplace' to open the way east.

To make your way down to the Catacombs (Cm) you'll need two more keys: the Marble key from Librarian unlocks the gates to the temple of Celestian and a Very bright key from a one of the Goth demons, unlocks the altar in the Altar of Celestian (Ac) to open a way down to the Catacombs.

I've marked three rooms C1, C2 and C3. An exit marked with 1, 2 or 3 will take you to the corresponding 'C' room. There are two mobs of note in the Catacombs. The undead Dragon Rauglothgor lies in his Lair (Lr) and the undead king of Myth Drannor awaits you in his Tomb (Ts).

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 15enenene2n3en3enene3n3enenen2es11e5senes2e.
