Although the default is two Fighters, a Rouge and a Mage, which is generally considered the best all-round group, you easily give yourself two Mages, four Fighters or whatever group you like. Experiment if you want to see what kind of challenges it can make for you. Aside from choosing classes and assigning various stats, there are also Traits that you can stick onto your characters that give certain stat boost and various abilities. Movement and Battling --------------------- Due to the grid-based movement system in the game, and the fact that most, but not all, the enemies attack in front of them, you can often exploit this to your advantage but moving to the side of the creature to attack, and always stay on their side. Of course, this isnt always an option in room where there are a lot of enemies wandering around. However a lot of these rooms have door at their entrances, so a good tactic is to stand at the door and attack from there. While it does mean the enemy can attack you, youre in the perfect position to close the door so you can rest and recover your health Food and Resting ---------------- Moving, attacking, being attacked; any kind of action in this game will steadily reduce your hunger bar. Theres no penalty when it hits yellow, but let it fall into the red and youll find your character is weakened and you wont be able to recover health and energy. There are a lot of food items that you can give yourself to keep yourself fed and healthy, but be careful not to carry too much, or itll weigh you down. The other way to quickly regain health is the Rest, which is done using the button in your character menu. Doing so will allow you to quickly regenerate your health and energy but it also drains your hunger bar, so dont be too overzealous when using it. Equipment and Storage --------------------- Due to the fact that you have a limited number of inventory spaces, coupled with a weight carry limit, youll find yourself performing a lot of inventory juggling as you find yourself carting around a lot of food and weapons. One tip if you find yourself always close to carrying enough to slow you down is to pick a spot to safe deposit your items so you can pick them up later. This is also a useful tactic to use when dealing with other items that you feel you might not need. Choosing a spot to drop your unnecessary items will make them easy to find should you find yourself suddenly wanting them. Maps and Notes -------------- The Map is very much your friend in this game, as it can let you know where you havent yet been and what direction youre facing. Also, if youre using the map Ive uploaded, then you can use it to see which secrets and treasures youre missing. Of course, if youre playing on Old School Mode, then you wont get to use either. Secrets and Treasures --------------------- All the Secrets and Treasures are listed in the main guide. Treasure, like Skulls, only need to be picked up to add to your Achievement count, but youre welcome to take them with you as long as you can bear the weight. Try to keep track of your secrets, as to which ones you have and havent got, as it can be very galling to miss one and have to backtrack through several floors to get to it. Also, note that finding Treasures does not add to your Secret count, as they are counted separately. +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | Classes, Races, Skills, and Traits - LG02 | +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Classes ------- Fighter From the primitive barbarian warriors to the highly trained legionary soldiers and noblemen in search of honor, fighters come from all walks of life and ranks of society. They are trained to use a variety of close combat weaponry and armors. These guys work best at the front of your formation, attacking the enemy and taking the brunt of the attacks. Give them the best weapons and armour you can. Mage Studying arcane knowledge lets mages tap into the forces of nature and elements and form them into powerful spells. Because of their low defence, Mages should say at the back of your group, their magic attacks able to do damage at a distance. Rogue Rogues are the masters of stealthy combat and ranged weapons. Some rogues are common thieves while others are deadly dagger-wielding assassins or noble huntsmen. Rouges can either stay at the back of the group using throwing/missile weapons, or at the front and use their daggers to attack. Races and thier stats --------------------- Human The most populous of the sentient races in the world, humans see themselves as the keepers of order and peace but not all the other beings agree with their definition of laws or where the borders of nations are drawn.

They are often found in places where they are most likely to cause problems like in overcrowded port cities and in the legions of warring nations. Minotaurs are tolerated in the cities only because of their ability to do hard labor without rest as long as beer and meat is provided.

Effect: Health +15 +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | Main Walkthrough | +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Level 1: Into The Dark - MW01 ----------------------------- So, here you are. Dropped down a hole with nothing to defend yourself with. Quite how you survived the fall is anyones guess, but whatever, right? We need to get going! --- Secret 1 (L1.1) Turn around right at the beginning of the game and take a step to you Left. Then move towards the wall and youll see your first little button in the brickwork. Press it and the wall to your right will lift up so you can grab the goodies within. - Lurker Boots - Shuriken x1 --- With the first secret already found, turn back around and go to the gate opposite. On the wall, you can click on the text to read Choose your fate. Perish in this cell or pick up the torch. Well, wont be much of an adventure if you just hung around in a cell all day, so go ahead and grab that Torch. Give it to one of your partly members to light your way ahead. Move forward and youll find a dead-end on your right and a gate on your left. Pull the handle to open the gate and continue on. On your left therell be another dead-end, this time with some clothes for you to wear. A Peasants Tunic and a Peasants Breeches. Hardly stylish, but they should do for now, so slip them on one of your party members. Not two spaces away youll find a small wall alcove with a Cudgel, which you can give to one of your frontmen to feel slightly better defended. Once youve got all these, open the next door by pulling on the level next to it. In the next corridor youll come across a pressure plate on the floor and a nearby Rock. Hmmm, tricky. Pick up the rock and place it on the pressure plate to raise the gate up ahead and continue on, safe in the knowledge that the fall didnt damage your head too much. Once through the gate, right down the right path to find, oh what a surprise, a Brass Key. Get used to keys as youre gonna be seeing a LOT of them. Continue on and when given a right/forward choice, it doesnt matter as youll end up in the same place. Id recommend forward however, as you can grab a Rock on the floor that will likely come in handy. Once you reach the door, use the Brass Key on the keyhole to open it up. Take a left up ahead and the writing on the wall will Loose Rock. In the dead-end, youll notice another little button on the wall, so give it a push. The wall to your right will slide up and youll find an Iron Key in the alcove. Go back to the gate you passed by earlier and use the key to open it up. Move forward, past the dead-end on your right and at the next dungeon, look to your Left. Youll see a Giant Snail at the end of the corridor. Before we deal with it however, we can get one more piece of equipment. Turn around and flip the lever to open the gate and then you can pick up a Throwing Knife. With that in hand, turn back around and approach the Giant Snail. Leave a few spaces between you and throw the Shuriken, Rock and Throwing Knife at it from a distance. Itll then move up to attack you directly, at which point you can use your two front Fighters to wail on it up it dies. However, dont forget your Magic User, as depending on what Skills you gave him before you started he might have a spell he can use. It will likely be Fire Burst if you went with the default settings. Dont forget that you can attack unarmed too, so use both front characters to fight it, but dont bother with your back characters as they cant reach. Once its dead, youll get your thrown items back as well as a Snail Slice. In the area it was guarding youll find a Knife, which you can give to your second Fighter, some Leather Boots and some Leather Pants, which you can give to whoever. Move back to where you got the Throwing knife, and continue one and youll find some more Giant Snails. Use the same tactic to dispatch them and you should come out on top. One theyre gone, take the first left and follow the corridor all the way to the end to find Pitroot Bread and another Rock. Its often worth keeping all the rocks you can as youll likely need them in the areas to come. Head back and open the gate. The text on the wall reads To close the pit, something needs to fly. A seemingly obvious puzzle, however Grimrock is a place of maybe layers, all stacked up on top of each other, and some areas are only accessible from above. What does that mean? It means that more often than not, dropping down a hole will lead you to a new area. Now this particular pit doesnt hold a Secret, but if you want to go for 100% Map Coverage, then by all means drop down and then enter the shiny portal to get back out. Now, onto solving the puzzle; which youve likely already done while I was talking but in case you didnt, just throw a Rock across the hole and onto the pressure plate. Grab the Iron Key and head back and to the right. While you can unlock the door now, before you do follow the path to the left and at the end youll find a Baked Maggot, another Rock, some Sandals and a Loincloth. Once youve got them, head back and open the door. In front of you is a face on the wall with some nearby text reading Heal My Sight, which seems pretty reasonable. As for how, well you may have notice that you can go left and right, or to save confusion, North and South according to the map. Doesnt matter which is first, so let go North for now. Follow the path and youll find a gate, which you can open. On the other side will be a four Herders wandering around, but you should be proficient enough at battling by now to take them on if youre careful. Id recommend staying by the gate and taking them on one at a time. If you find yourself getting too damaged, retreat; close the gate and Rest to recover your health before going back in again. Even if you didnt need to recover during the fight you likely will afterwards, so dont be worried about needing to do so. On the left of the gate you can find a Grim Cap on the floor, and deeper in the area theres another one on your left and a Tar Bead near the level on the wall. Pull the lever to open the gate and grab the Blue Gem from the floor. --- Secret 2 (L1.2) In the cell where you pick up the Blue Gem, turn to face the Northern wall and youll see a fairly obvious button. Press it and youll open up a room where the lever was. - Dagger - Tar bead x1 - Cave Nettle x2 --- Return to the area with the face on the wall, and now you can head down the south path. Before you hit the lever on the wall, theres a hole near you that you can drop down into. Itll take you to an area where you can get some items from Level 2 early, so you can either get them now or wait until later. Down there is a Giant Snail, which you can kill, a Rock and Peasants Cap. Once youve got them, use the teleport to get back up and flip the lever to close the hole. Now, go to the left and kill the Giant Snail wandering around the area, before picking up the Rock, Loincloth and Tatter Cloak from the floor. In the little alcove will be your first Spell Scroll for the spell Fire Burst. Seeing as Ive already told you that you can use it its kinda superfluous, but its nice to know all the same. Head back and step on the pressure plate to open the gate. Youll have to fight your way through three Giant Snails, but they shouldnt pose too much of a problem for you hopefully, so just take them one at a time. Inside the gate will shut behind you (Oh no!) but at youll find the 2nd Blue Gem and on the north wall where that is, theres a small switch to open the gate back up. But as you go to leave itll shut again. No worries; just place an item through the bars on the plate in front of you to open it back up again. Then head back to the face on the wall and plug those Blues Gems into its eyes. As soon as that door opens, youll be greeted by the spear of a Skeleton Warrior. Back up into the larger area to give yourself space to manoeuvre and killing this thing will be a doddle. Once its dead, grab its stuff if you want it and continue forward through the newly opened door. In the next area will be your first Iron Door. And to the right will be a Scroll, which reads - Doors of iron Great rewards can be found behind these doors. To gain access look carefully for details and use your wits. Sounds simple enough. --- Secret 3 (L1.3) Iron Door #1 This is a nice easy one to start you off. Facing the door, turn to your right and you should see the switch on the wall in front of you. Press it and then turn back to alcove on the wall. Stand in front of it and turn left and youll see another button on that wall, press that one too and the door will open. - A Scroll: This magical staff is a powerful weapon when wielded by a potent mage. - Whitewood Wand --- With the door open, head onwards to find a big blue crystal! Pick up the Scroll nearby to learn all about them. - Crystal of Life Touch to regain health and restore life. Certainly sounds pretty handy. Use it if you wish, and them further on youll find a Spell Scroll that tells you about Poison Cloud. Just to the left of that will be the stairs to Level 2... Level 2: Old Tunnels - MW02 --------------------------- Welcome to Level 2! To your right you will see a pile of boxes and junk and to you left is a gate that you can open with the nearby lever. Opening the gate will take you to the room you dropped down in from Level 1. If you havent already been in there, head inside and youll find a Giant Snail, which you can kill, a Rock and Peasants Cap. Going back the other way, remember that you can destroy those wooden boxes to give yourself more room to move, so its always advisable to do so. Beyond that is a Giant Snail, which you can kill and after that a gate to open. Continue down the path and eventually youll see a locked door on your left, which you obviously cant open yet, so keep moving forward. The next area to your left has a Rock for you to collect and then beyond that is a level. Pull it to open the nearby gate. Inside that room youll find a Doublet, a Dagger, Silk Hose and Mole Jerky. Once youve got that, continue on to find a door, which you can open with the handle. Kill the three Herders, but be careful of the little ones as they have a ranged attack that might Poison you. In the area youll find a Machete, a Compass and an Iron Key. If youre playing on normal mode or using one of the online maps then the compass will be fairly useless, but if youre on Old School mode, itll help you work out your orientation. Now, as youd expect, you have to backtrack all the way to that locked door and open it up. On the far wall is some writing Shelter left, Cells Right --- Secret 4 (L2.1) To the left of the text will be a Torch handle. Placing a Torch there will cause the nearby wall to slide up. - Iron Basinet --- Pull the lever next to the door and head forward, killing the Giant Snail and stand next to the cell with the torch. On the floor of the cell will be a Sandmole Hide Vest that you can reach through the bars to pick up. Underneath it is a Brass Key. Pick it up and carry it forward to the gate up ahead which you can now unlock with your new key. --- Secret 5 (L2.2) In the new room, go left and in the dead-end face west. Press the button on the wall to open up the lit cell and allowing you to claim the item you couldnt reach before. - Poison Arrows x3 --- Now, to open the next door you need to press both plates at the same time, whilst also being free to move around yourself. This you can easily do by using the two nearby torches and placing them on the plates. Follow the corridor and youll eventually run into a Crowern. These arent too tricky to handle if you can lure it back into the previous open space, but if youre feeling daring, feel free to take it on in the corridor. The first right down the corridor leads to a closed gate and a Message that reads No weapons allowed inside. And next to that is a little alcove where you can place something. You dont actually have to give up a weapon as any item placed on the shelf will do, so drop a stone there and then deal with the two Giant Snails inside. After that, pick up the Grim Cap, Rock and Iron Key. --- Secret 6 (L2.3) Before you leave, look on the Western wall for a button that you can press to open up the wall. - Pointy Shoes --- Continue moving forward and youll be greeted with a gate, beyond which youll see a Crystal of Life. However, we cant get there without two keys and we only have one. So take the nearby right path and follow it to the gate, which can easily be opened. Head forward and go left when you can. Open the door and enter the teleport. This area has a neat little puzzle; there are six cells in this area, one of which contains a Skeleton Warrior and one of which contains a Sack. On the wall there are two buttons, which will teleport the contents of the cells around, and will also drop something at the end of the hallway. The button closest to the teleport will warps things around in an anti-clockwise system, which the one furthest away will teleport them clockwise. To solve this puzzle without encountering the Skeleton Warrior, just press the button furthest from the teleport three times and you can claim the Sack as your prize. If you always wish to fight the Skeleton Warrior to gain some extra EXP, by all means. Either way, open the sack to find your 2nd Iron Key, some Pitroot Bread and a Leather Cap. Once you have the items, you can leave the bag behind. Teleport back and have a look at the end of the corridor. The writing on the wall says Enter Thy Grave, which doesnt sound promising. If youre worried about dying, feel free you save your game before stepping onto the pressure plate and releasing three Skeleton Warriors. If youre quick you can kill the first one before the other two get a change to strike, at which point dealing with things becomes easier. Just be sure to keep moving and try not to get stuck. Once theyre dead, look inside the alcoves they were all hiding in. Each one will contain a lever which you need to pull to open the gate, and theres also a Tattered Cloak, a Bone Amulet and a Spell Scroll, this one containing Ice Shards. Now, a word of warning in advance; the Bone Amulet will help you gain access to a secret area much later on in the game, so I would advise that if youre not going to wear it, to at least remember to keep it. Once all that is sorted you can head back to where you saw the Crystal of Life and open both gates to get to it. Now, we have a path going East and West, so lets tackle the West one first, just because. Follow the path and youll meet a couple of Crowerns flying around. Dispatch them both and then go to the torch at the far end of the area. Right next to if youll find a button on the wall so press it and youll hear a wall nearby slide up. Go to the newly opened place and therell be another button that needs pressing, and dont so will release another Crowern, which you should promptly kill. In the section it came from there will be another switch which will reopen the area with the torch. Head back there and youll see a newly opened are in which youll find a Throwing Knife and a Brass Key. With that in hand, head back to the Crystal of Life, use it if you wish and then head down the East path. Right away youll find a teleport blocking your path. Using it will only teleport you back one step, so to get past it, turn around and youll see a button on the wall. Press it and quickly take three steps backwards. Dont bother turning as you wont have the time. Once past that youll see a hole in the floor, so drop down and you can find a Grim Cap in the area below before teleporting back up. Youll have to do the backwards stepping again, but once thats done, use a Rock and throw it over the hole to close the gap, and then open the door on the other side. Inside is a Crowern that you should kill before collecting the Cave Nettle, Hand Axe and 2nd Brass Key. Once youve got them head back to the Crystal of Life, use the two keys to open the gate and step through the teleport. To your right youll find a Throwing Knife and a Spell Scroll, Poison Bolt. To open the gate, take a step back from it and turn right, to find a button on the wall. On the other side youll have to deal with a couple of Herders, but its nothing you havent handled before. Continue forward, past the dead-end on your right and then past the door further on to your right. Youll likely have run into a third Herder around here, but again, no problem. At the end of the dead-end youll find some Pitroot Bread, then head back to the door and use the button to open it up. However, before you go through the door, turn to your left and youll notice a new path opened up, with a Herder wandering around. Head inside and kill it to stop it from attacking you from behind. Once its dead, head through the door. Theres more Herders here for you to kill, so dispatch them and then head left when you have the chance. At the opposite end to the Torch, youll find a Tar Bead on the floor, then go and check where the Torch is to find a Brass Key. --- Secret 7 (L2.4) Right where you find the Brass Key is an obvious a lever, which you should promptly pull. This will open up a new area, in the large area after you came through the door, with two Herders inside. - Tar Bead - Leather Pants - Phalanx Helmet - Skull --- --- Treasure #1 Opposite this area there is a button on the wall that will show you a nearby Treasure. --- For the Skull Snatcher Achievement, you only need to pick up all 5 Skulls to get it; you dont have to carry them in your Inventory and the same applies for the Treasures. Once youve got that, head down the forward path and then take the first right to find a Grim Cap on the floor. Keep going and youll spot a keyhole in the wall. To the right of that will be some Nomad Boots and a Cave Nettle. Use the key in the keyhole and then follow the path forward to the end. Flip the level here and youll raise the wall allowing access to the previous area of the level, near to the Crystal of Life, which you can use if you need it. Either way, head back and take the left and stand on the pressure plate for several seconds to open up the door. Inside there will be a Skeleton Warrior wandering around for you to kill and then move forward until theres a path to your right. Before you deal with the Secret there though, in this area there is a Skeleton Warrior Group hanging around. These are quite tricky if youre unprepared, so find it and be sure to face it in a place where you have room to move. Make sure to keep moving so it cant attack you and focus on Magic attacks, as they deal damage to all 4 creatures at once, rather then one at a time with your Melee attacks. Eventually though, youll beat it and be able to focus on the Secret without interruption. --- Secret 8 (L2.5) Next to the face on the wall it reads Only a patient man can defeat the daemons gaze. To open the door here, simply stand on the pressure plate, be sure to face the bust on the wall, for about 15 seconds and the door will open. Be quick to move though, as it will release another Skeleton Warrior Group for you to deal with, although use the same tactic as before to kill them and then claim your prize. - Fire Bomb x3 --- --- Secret 9 (L2.6) Theres another secret around here. On the west side of the area, near the gate, theres a button on the wall for you to press in the corner. - Healing Potion - Spell Scroll Poison Shield - Leather Brigandine --- With that last secret under your belt, head back to the gate you likely saw while dealing with the first Skeleton Warrior Group and pull the chain to open it up. Move forward and youll find a bag in an alcove containing a Mortar and Pestle, two Empty Flasks, two Tar Beads, a Cave Nettle and a Scroll Potion of Healing, 1 Flask, 1 Tar bead; Antivenom, 1 Flask, 1 Cave Nettle. These are two potions that youll be using a lot, so be sure to remember them! Once youve sorted it all out, take the Torch next to the gate to open it up and head down to Level 3... Level 3: Pillars of Light - MW03 -------------------------------- Straight into a puzzle to begin. Opposite your entrance is a door with some nearby writing: A lone pillar of light stands alone in the night. Rather obtuse, but its a good thing Im here to help. Its actually rather simple, just take the torch from the far wall and place on the pillar in the middle of room. The other two Torches youll have to supply yourself, but you should have some spare hopefully. If not, pop back up to Level 2 and grab some. With the gate open, more forward and grab the Frost bomb from the alcove. There are three Crowerns flying around in the next area, but they shouldnt be too hard to kill if you take them one at a time. Theres also a small chance that you might attract the attention of a nearby Skeleton Archer, but theyre quite easy to deal with. As they have a ranged attack, but sure to keep out of their line-of-sight as you approach them, and then use the usual tactic to finish it off. Once youve dealt with that, drop down the hole and youll find yourself in an area with two Giant Snails, which shouldnt be a problem. Down here you can find a Tar Bead and a Skull. Once youve got them, flip the lever to activate the teleport to get back up. Once youre back up, go to the west-side of the area, and on the small wall in the pillar youll see a fair obvious button. Push it and a wall in the middle of the pillar will slide up and you can claim the Shuriken within. --- Secret 10 (L3.1) Turn around from where you picked up the Shuriken and youll see a button on the wall. Press it to open the gate on the other side of the holes and then throw a rock across to close the holes and access the area. - Short Bow - Broadhead Arrow x3 --- Continue forward and youll eventually reach a locked door and a gate which you can open with the nearby button. As you can clearly see, this is obviously a trap, so if you wish to save before entering do so, as youll be facing 4 Skeleton Warriors. This time however you have an advantage in that you dont even have to fight them. The pressure plate in front of the one that seals you in the room will open the hole in the middle of the area, and if you can get the Skeleton Warriors to stand on it when it opens they drop on down. Either drop them down the hole or kill them as you wish and then youll be free to explore the area and find an Empty Flash, a Cave Nettle, a Shuriken and a Brass Key. You dont need to drop into this hole as youve already been in the area it goes too. Once youve got all that, flip the lever to bring up the wall, inside youll find a Baked Maggot and two Tar Beads and the way out of the room, allowing you to use the key to open the door. Follow the path and ignore the dead-ends as theres nothing there and then open the gate to find yourself a Crystal of Life. Handy. Drop down the holes and kill the Herder before claiming the Leather Greaves and teleporting back up. Continue on and youll have your first encounter with a Giant Spider, which can be quite annoying. Not only do they attack quickly, but they can poison your party too, so be careful when dealing with them and try to use the 2x2 method to finish them. Once its dead continue on and through the gate and youll find another Giant Spider to deal with. --- Secret 11 (L3.2) Once done, drop down into the hole. In this area, which is thankfully enemy-free, youll find three pressure plates; one in easy reach and two beyond gates. First, place a rock on the one thats easily accessible, and then on the one beyond that gate without the teleporter on top of it. Now, to remove the teleporter from the final one, you have to press a switch on the wall, which on the east side on the room, near the small dead-end. Press it to deactivate the teleport and place a rock on that final button to raise the gate and allow you access. - Serpent Bracer --- --- Secret 12 (L3.3) That isnt the only secret that this area holds though. Once youve got the Serpent Bracer, go take to the switch and turn the teleporter back on to find another one. Sneaky, eh? - Spell Scroll: Invisibility --- Once youve got both of these secrets, use the other teleporter to get back up, but dont forget your Rocks. --- Secret 13 (L3.4) Another one, and so soon! Right where you teleport back up the Level 3, turn to your left and press the switch and then quickly step across the now closed holes and press a button thats on the wall where the furthest hole is to open up the nearby wall and show you another teleport. Use it and you can find the stuff. - Shuriken - Tome of Health (This is a one-time only item that will increase the health of the character that uses it by 25 Points, so use it wisely.) --- With all that Secreting done, time to move on to a puzzle. In the next room youll see a series of moving teleports, a hole and some pressure plates. Theres a trick to this and it requires too timing, so read before trying. First, make sure youre facing east, and get a rock ready to throw. You aim is to take a step right, back and then right again and throw a rock before the teleport can warp you out, so that it lands on the pressure plate and closes the hole in the middle. With the middle area now accessible, you can now move into the area to the east and pick up the Rock, but not the one on the pressure plate, and two Poison Bombs. Youll also see the Iron Door past a hole, but we cant get there now, so leave it until later. Go back to the middle of moving teleports and then quickly throw a Rock onto the other pressure plate and quickly get past the gate before it closes. At the 4-way path go forward and when you see the plant/egg things, kill them and then take the 2 Broadhead Arrows on the floor next to them, then go back and take the right and pull the lever to gain access to the previous room and then open the nearby door. Kill the Giant Spider wandering around and then head down the path opposite the locked door and take the right. Go past the cave-in and youll come to a closed door. On the other side of the door are four Giant Spiders and this is going to be a very tough fight. Id recommend staying where you can open/close the door as you need to, so you can seal the spiders back up and rest when you get hurt. Or even closing the door when waiting for the weapon cooldown to pass. Either way, take it slowly, one at a time, and you can kill them. Once done, remove all the eggs things from the room too. Once all thats out of the way you can claim your goodies, being two Blooddrop Blossoms, a Sandmole Hide Vest, a Loincloth, a Longsword and an Iron Key. Once you have all that, flip the lever to open the second door. Move forward and look at the writing on the wall I demand a sacrifice. So place a rock in the cell and press the button to the left and youll get the rock back along with Silk Hose and an Iron Key. --- Secret 14 (L3.5) Place a rock into the cell again and press the button to get the secret. - Nomad Mittens --- With both keys, you can now go back and open up the door. On the other side, kill the two spiders wandering around and clear the eggs out of your way. --- Secret 15 (L3.6) Iron Door #2 To open the iron Door, you first need to place two torches in the stands at the opposite end on the room, making it the opposite of the first room of this Level. The wall with then rise up allowing you to access the lever that will open the door. Backtrack to the Iron Door, and to get across the gap, remove the rock from the pressure plate (assume you left it) next to the moving teleports. In front of the Iron Door will be a Cave Nettle. - Huntsman Cloak --- Go back to the room where you put the two torches up and remove one to reopen the door forward. Follow the path and take two lefts to find a Tar Bead. Then go back, left and follow the path until you reach the eggs, which you should remove. Next, look in the little section that faces the gate to find a button on the wall, one thats part of the brickwork and press it to open a path. It will also release a Giant Spider, which you should kill quickly. When its dead, find the switch on the wall. Pressing it will open the gate only for a few seconds, so when you press it quickly move around to the right to get through in time. Now youll have to deal with two Giant Spiders in this room, so kill the first one quickly to give yourself room to finish off the second one. To reopen the gate back to the previous area, press the switch to the left, facing the door. Open the gate ahead and go right and at the end of the path youll find a Boiled Crag Beetle, and a Grim Cap. Backtrack and go down the other path. In this area theres three Giant Spiders wandering around. Kill them as carefully as you can and then you should see some Leather Gloves on the floor. Pick them up and continue forward and open the door. Take the left path and kill the three Giant Spiders in the next area, one of which is likely to drop a Gold Key, which is important for later, so be sure to pick it up. --- Secret 16 (L3.7) Before continuing on, backtrack to the area with the torch on the wall and youll likely spot that a new area has opened up and released a Giant Spider into the area. - Tar Bead x2 --- --- Secret 17 (L3.8) Treasure #2 In the far corner of the small room, there will be a button on the wall that will raise the wall and lead to a set of stairs. Go down and youll find a face on the wall next to the words Feed My Hunger. Open the nearby door and prepare to meet a new enemy. The Smiles! Theyre pretty annoying as they can often inflict Disease on one of your party members, which will prevent them from healing. Not only that, but they can attack through the grates in the area up ahead, but take them one at a time as usual, and be sure to rest and heal when you need to and you can clear this area easily enough. There are seven of them wandering around, so take you time. Once theyre dead, you can pick up three Slime Bells and your second Treasure. Now, on the southern wall youll find a switch that you should, of course, press. This will open up a wall to your left that will allow you to find the Green Gem. Take it to the face on the wall and place it in its mouth to open the door to the secret area. - Poison Bomb x2 - Poison Quarral x6 - Crossbow --- With all of that done, and wasnt there a lot of it, head back upstairs to where you were before the Secrets started. Entering the area again, turn right and follow the path ahead into a dead-end containing a Grim Cap. Then open the nearby door, and inside youll find a Box containing 3 Cave Nettles, 2 Tar Beads, a Fire Bomb, some Mole Jerky, a Spell Scroll: Shock and a Scroll which reads Im getting very close to the formula! Mixing a powdered grim cap with a witches flower almost works. Im just missing one ingredient. This is actually telling you about the Sulphurous Potion, which needs a Grim Cap, Blooddrop Blossom and Cave Nettle to make. With that done, head back and continue towards the torch on the wall. Near it youll find a note on the floor that reads: Ill have to watch my back more carefully. The spiders are everywhere. This is a true fact youll discover soon enough. Move past the torch and to the left to find a Round Shield. Now prepare yourself for a very annoying section. As youve no doubt heard, theres some Giant Spiders crawling around here, but when you find the room theyre in, youll no doubt realise that theres quite a lot of them. Five to be exact. So, first, before you even think about tackling them, rest up so your characters are at their best and then save your game just in case. When youre ready, position yourself in front of one of the gate and open it up. Now, your goal should be to stand where you are and kill them one at a time, being sure to close the gate and heal up/rest when you need to. Itll take some time; youll likely run out of Cave Nettles while youre doing it, but if you can, try not to use them all. Once theyre all dead, rest up, as youll likely needs it, and then go into the room they were guarding. Next to the green eggs youll find a Cave Nettle, and then open the door. On the wall it said: Spectral Relay. Hmmm, curious. For now, stand on the pressure plate and youll see a ball of energy fired at you, but itll fizzle out on the gate. So place a rock on the other side to open the gate up. If you head into that area you can find yourself a Baked Maggot on the floor, and then as you leave youll step on the pressure plate again, firing off another energy ball. Quickly step to the side and let it hit the cog on the far wall to open the door. Go through the door and youll find yourself back near the Crystal of Life. Flip the lever to your right to regain access to it, and you can also pick up the Leather Cap and Note I found a better armour, so Ill leave my old equipment here. Its too bad that I was a little clumsy with the leather greaves though. I wont risk it by going after it myself, but maybe someone else is brave enough to take the plunge. No idea how to open the door though... Toorum. --- Secret 18 (L3.9) Thankfully, we do know how to open the door. With the key that was got from the dead spider earlier. - Ring Boots - Knoffer Mace --- With that done we can now head down to Level 4... Level 4: Archives - MW04 ------------------------ Walk forward and when you step on the pressure plate two Herders will appear. Be careful with these ones, as they can spray a poison cloud out to the side, which makes rather tricky to deal with, even using the usual circling methods. Just keep moving and attacking and youll eventually kill them. One of them will have dropped an Iron Key that you can use to move forward. In the little open area you can find a Grim Cap, Empty Flask and a Scroll Restore Energy: 1 Flask, 1 Blooddrop Blossom. which is a useful one to give to your Magic user. Open the door ahead and you be in a large area with four teleports and two sets of two Skeleton Archers. Kill them both and then you can pick between four different areas to go to: Time and Tide, Beast Gardens and Menagerie, The Catacomb and Trials of Thought. As it doesnt matter which order you do them in, lets start with Time and Tide. Walk forward and, as you should be aware by now, you need to drop down the hole. Pick up the Baked Maggot and then teleport back up. To the right of the pressure plate you can find 3 Throwing Knives. Now, the trick with the pressure plate is to stand on it and youll hear a ticking noise. After three clicks, a teleport will open for a second and then vanish. Your aim is to throw a rock (or anything) into the teleport, which of course requires timing, so use the plate a few time to get the timing right and them rock your rock. If you use up all your throwing items, just drop down the hole to collect them, and when you get them right the holes will close. --- Secret 19 (L4.1) To find this secret, place a rock on the pressure plate and then stand where the teleport will appear to be warped to the secret area. - Book of Infinite Wisdom --- With that rather nifty secret under your belt, continue onwards. Youll find another pressure pate in your way. Before dealing with that though, you need to drop down the hole again. In this area is a Skeleton Warrior, a pair of Skeleton Archers and a lone one too. Finish them off and in the area you can find a Burrow Rat Shank, a Cave Nettle and a Tar Bead. On the east side of the room, youll find a lever that you should pull. On the other side youll find two Skeleton Archers and a Skeleton Warrior, a Baked Maggot lying on the floor and a Teleport back up to the top. Youll have to find a reuse the Time and Trials teleport to get back to that pressure plate. This next time will require quick timing, so Id recommend saving and reading on first, as you can get a secret and continue on at the same time. Also, theres a Crowern flying around that area, so if you can attack it before you step on the plate so you can kill it and save it being really annoying. --- Secret 20 (L4.2) Firstly, face south and step on the pressure plate. Take two steps to the left and press the button on the wall. Another two to the left and quickly move forward and grab the item in the alcove. - Chitin Mask --- Keep moving forward and when you see a pressure plate on the other side, throw something over there to hit it and raise the gate and get through before the opening holes get you. If you dont get it right the first time, reload the save and try again. Once through the gate, you can find a Shuriken near the pressure plate and then open the gate. On the other side will be a room with four Crowerns flying around for you to kill and a very important Scroll to pick up that reads but never forgotten. Hmmm, mysterious. Take the teleport back to the main room. Next up, use the Beast Gardens and Menagerie teleport. To open the door, press the switch on the left and quickly side-step right twice to prevent the energy ball from hitting the cog on the wall and the gate will stay open. --- Secret 21 (L4.3) Ignore the enemies wandering around for now. Dont even bother killing them, as theyll just respawn anyway. Go to the south-east corner of the area and to the north-west you should see a switch in the wall, press it and the nearby gate will open into the area that doesnt have a torch. Head into the area, let the gates close, and you should been a hidden button on the wall. Press it to open the secret area and then press the other button opposite to open the gates again. Head out and go to the north-west of the area to find the secret. - Pitroot Bread - Ring Gauntlets - Leather Boots --- Now, for the puzzle; as you may have noticed, theres quite a few Skeleton Warriors wandering the area that I told you not to deal with, and for good reason. There are also three pressure plates hidden behind gates. To open the gates, find the button on the wall nearby. Theyre not hard to find, so I think you can manage that one by yourself for now. Once theyre all open, lead a Skeleton Warrior into the area by standing on one side and letting the Skeleton Warrior walk towards you. The gate will close and itll stay trapped. Do this with all three and the gate will open. There will also be another two Skeleton Warriors still wandering around, so feel free to kill them. There are also some items for you to collect. Theres a Blooddrop Blossom in the little area to the west in the area and two more in the little area to the south. Follow the path forward to find another scroll but still dreaming. And then use the teleport to go back to the main area and take The Catacomb teleport. In this next are, when you take a step forward youll release a Skeleton Warrior, a Skeleton Archer and a pair on Skeleton Archers. Kill them all and then drop down those holes that opened in front of you. Down here youll find a Tar bead and two Crossbow Quarrels. Press the button on the wall and youll open up the wall and find a Skeleton Warrior. Kill him and youll then find yourself in familiar territory, so use the nearby teleport to get back up, and then use The Catacomb teleport to get back. Have a wander around this area now and make sure youve got all the enemies. Your goal now is to remove the items from the three pressure plates in the area. There one in the north with a Rock on it, one behind the teleport with a Burrow Rat Shank on it, and the third. Theres so two Crossbow Quarrels on the floor in the area. --- Secret 22 (L4.4) From the lever in the west of the area go east, north, and east and then face south to find a switch, which will open a wall near the northern pressure plate, and also release four Skeleton Warriors. It will be on a timer, so by the time youve taken care of the four Skeleton Warriors, youll have to press the button again to open it up a second time, and then quickly move around to get there before it closes again. - Fire Bomb - Flarefeather Cap --- Head back to the switch and flip it to release another four Skeleton Warriors, which you should be able to deal with. This is the final pressure plate. --- Secret 23 (L4.5) However, if you step on the plate they were guarding youll see a button on the wall. Press it and the gate will come down, the wall will slide up to reveal a lone Skeleton Warrior. Kill him to claim what he was guarding. A Bag full of goodies! - Bone Amulet (not in the bag, on the floor) - Burrow Rat Shank - Tar Bead x2 - Leather Gloves --- With that done, you can now cross where the holes were, open the gate and pick up your third scroll to depths beyond measure. and then teleport back. As you go back into the main area a bunch of Tentacles will appear through the grate on the floor. Finish them off quickly and be careful of their ability to Paralyse your people. Time for your final area Trials of Thought. Welcome to one of the most annoying little puzzles in the game. Not because its hard but because it involves an annoying amount of trial-and-error. But dont worry, I can help you through it easily. The idea it to get through the area whilst avoiding the teleports, as they just warp you back to the start. To do this, step onto the pressure plate that opens the gate and then follow this path: Forward, forward, forward, right, back, left, back, right, forward, left, back, left. The turn to your left, press the button and then turn back to the right again. Now go: Forward, right, back, left, forward, right, back, right, forward, left, forward, right and youre out! Theres a Crowern in the next area, so kill it and stand on the pressure plate to open the gate. --- Secret 24 (L4.6) If you stand on the middle of the three pressure plates in the next room and race that wall, youll see a button that will open the Secret area. - Venom Edge --- Before we solve the puzzle however, you should drop down the holes again, but it will mean going through the previous puzzle again, so its your call. Down there youll find two Slime Bells, and a button to open up access to that same old teleport again. Make your way past the teleporter puzzle and get ready to solve another one, thats thankfully much simpler. Just follow these directions: Forward, right, right, left, right, left, left, right, left, forward, back, right, left. With that done, you can grab the Iron Key from the alcove and use it to open the door. Theres a Skeleton Warrior beyond here and you can claim the final Scroll by his call. --- Secret 25 (L4.7) Before using the teleport, theres another secret for you to get and because its timed you should save beforehand. Go back a little to the small off-shot to the north near the door. In there is a switch that activates a timer. Quickly walk four spaces towards the teleport and then go left twice, turn around, press the button on the wall and quickly go back to solid ground and drop down the now open hole where the teleport was. - Gear Key --- Teleport yourself back to the main room. With all four scrolls in hand you can now match them up to the sayings on the wall as follows: Put to sleep but still dreaming. Caverns still echoing by his call. Crimes forgotten but never forgiven. Eternally imprisoned in depths beyond measure. When you do this, several walls will rise up and release six lone Scavengers and six double Scavengers. The best way to deal with them all is to retreat to the entrance to the area, so you can close the gate and rest if needs be and take them on one at a time. Theyre not very powerful in their attacks, but theres a hell of a lot of them and so its worth being careful. Once theyre gone you can explore the areas they can from. Youll find a two Tar Beads, a Cave Nettle, a Battle Axe and a lever that will reactivate the teleports. With the four scrolls in place we can leave, but theres two things we need to do first. --- Secret 26 (L4.8) Iron Door #3 As you already have the key in hand, found in Secret 24, this is simply a case of opening the door and claiming your prize. - Chitin Creaves --- With that final Secret found, to the right of the stairs is a Crystal of Life and some items: a Burrow Rat Shank, a Frost Bomb, and a Spell Scroll Frostbolt. With those collected, you can head down the stairs to Level 5... Level 5: Hallways - MW05 ------------------------ As you may have noticed when dropping down from above, but we finally have a new floor style for the area. Woo! Either way, when you get to the first main room, go left and then left again up ahead. Flip the lever and collect 2 Crossbow Quarrels and a Spell Scroll Fire Shield. With that stuff got, leave the area and go right and down to where the blue light comes from the ceiling. Just beyond that, on the left is a gate with another lever. Pull it, and in this room find the button on the wall. In the room it reveals youll find an Iron Key and a Wooden Box containing: two Baked Maggots, a Cave Nettle, two Tar Beads, a Slime Bell and a Spell Scroll Light, which will mean no more relying on Torches! --- Secret 27 (L5.1) In the little section that connects the two rooms here is an obvious button on the wall that you should press. - Scaled Cloak --- With all that done, flip the lever and go left and use the Iron Key to open the gate. Now, if you want you can drop down the hole in front of you, but all thats there is a Scroll that reads I know, I was disappointed too when I took the jump just to discover that there was nothing useful here. Toorum which is disappointing. Back up top, go left and then forward until you reach some boxes, which you can destroy. On the floor ahead will be a Shuriken, and then go left. In the room with the Dragon Statue there will be two Pitroot Breads in separate alcoves. Head down the path behind the statue and open the gate. --- Secret 28 (L5.2) In this area youll see two buttons and a lever. To open the door, press the button that faces the door, pull the lever down and then up again, and then press the button next to the door. Youll open the gate and release a pair of small Herders and a single large one. - Herder Cap - Conjurers Cap --- --- Secret 29 (L5.3) Move into the room with lots of pits and drop down. Theres a switch in the wall next to the teleport that will release a Crowerns and a Wyvern into the area. Be careful with the Wyvern, as they can spit lightning bolts at you from a distance. - Fire Bomb x2 - Lightning Bomb x2 --- Once youre back up, time to solve a little puzzle. There are three switches in the room; two on your side and one on the far side over the pits. To gain access to the key on the far side, heres what you do: Press the left switch (when facing the two together) then go over and press the now accessible one over the pits, then back to press the left one and then right one and then back over to the far on again. When you pick up the Iron Key, two walls will slide up, releasing a Crowerns and a Wyvern, one of which is blue, so take care while killing them. Once theyre dead, check the two new areas for a Blooddrop Blossom and a Scroll I preserved some of my extra Herder Caps in the nearby room. Im not quite sure what the exact sequence of events that opened the door but I think I had to do three things and Im certain that at one point I had to pull the lever repeatedly, leaving it in an upright position. Toorum. But seeing as weve already done that you dont need to worry about it. Head back the way you came, past the dragon to find the door you for your new key. In this room there will be two Crowerns, and two Wyvern so take care, and a Blooddrop Blossom on the floor. --- Secret 30 (L5.4) On the wall opposite the Blooddrop Blossom is a button for you to press and reveal the secret. - Fist Dagger --- Around the corner youll find a Tattered Cloak and a Crystal of Life, which is nice. Through the gate and head right to find some Ring Greaves, and then go back the other way. In this area youll likely run into two of a new enemy type; the Cave Crab, which can be kinda annoying as theyre rather tough at first and can pack a bit of a kick. When theyre both dead continue forward and open the gate. In this area, destroy the boxes for ease of movement later and youll spot a Scroll on the floor The door of Iron shall open if you take your time and rest in the place where the dragons gaze. --- Secret 31 (L5.5) Iron Door #4 This was a clue as to how to get that gate open, but with only one of the two dragons found how ever will you open it so early? Me of course! From standing in front of the door and facing the keyhole opposite, take one step to the right and then six steps forwards. Now just stand on that spot for about 30 seconds and the gate will open. You dont have to actually rest, just stay still. - Lurker Vest --- There are two door to choose from now; Chamber of Pits and Deserted Tunnels. Well do Chamber of Pits first. Drop down into said pits in the chamber and youll be greeted by two Skeleton Archers, a Skeleton Warrior and a set of four Skeleton Warriors. When youre all dead, you can collect a Grim Cap, a Burrow Rat Shank, a Blooddrop Blossom, and a Tattered Cloak. Head back upstairs and youll find a Boiled Crag Beetle and a Short Bow, and then flip the lever to get back to the Chamber of Pits. To get across, just pull on the lever and the press the button on the wall. This will start a sequence where you need to move quickly, so follow carefully: press the button and turn left, then step left, forward, forward, right, forward, forward, and then press the button on the wall. Quick turn left again and go forward, left, left, back, back, right, right, forward, forward, left, left, forward, forward and then left and quickly grab the Brace of Fortitude and move back several times and to the right to get to solid ground. Phew! Open the gate and move forward and in the large room youll find a Cave Crab wandering around. Kill him and you should see an Ornate Key, that looks like rather and easy find. Take it and youll see why. A Cave Crab, two small and one medium Herder will be released from the walls. Killing them shouldnt be too hard if youre careful. In the areas they came from you can find two Lightning Bombs, a Tar Bead, and a Grim Cap. Now you may have noticed that the way in seems to have sealed when you grabbed the key, so place a rock or something in the little alcove you got it from to open the wall back up again. To get back across the room of pits, pull the lever and flip the switch and follow the path in the reverse sequence from before. Or, if you cant be bothered to do that, just drop down the hole and climb the stairs. Once youre back on the other side, head into the Deserted Tunnels section. Youll find a rock on the floor in front of you and past that a gate you cant open. Keep going and on your right youll find a lever and to the left a pressure plate at the end of the corridor. Your goal now is to pull the lever and throw a rock onto the pressure plate, however, a teleport shows up for a brief second, so you have to time your throw correctly, then run to get through the door before it closes again. Once youre through you can read the writing in the wall There is no turning back. Up ahead therell be a gate to your left and in the room beyond a Tar Bead. In the area up ahead therell be a small Herder wandering around for you to deal with. However, be extremely cautious in this area, as when youve gone far enough from the entrance, walls will start to slide up and reveal other creatures for you to fight; two large Herders, two medium Herder, two small Herders and two Cave Crabs, which is quite the group of enemies. My advice, if you get swamped, is to retreat to the room with the Tar Bead and close the gate, thus giving yourself space to rest and recover. Once theyre all dead, you can claim the goodies they were guarding: a Milkreed, two Fire Bombs, a Grim Cap, a Shuriken, and a Warhammer. On the west side of the area, youll likely have seen a door with a nearby lever, so pull it to open it up. In this room youll find yourself a second Ornate Key. Pull the nearby lever to gain access back to the area you came from. --- Secret 32 (L5.6) To open the gate to get to this one, you have to pull the lever that opens the brown gate that you went through earlier. This will open the brown gate, close the gate nearby and also open the gate block access to the secret. - Grim Cap - Huntsmans Cloak - Fire Arrow x3 --- You can now head back to those locked door from before, but be careful as collecting both keys will have caused a Skeleton Warrior, a group of four Skeleton Warriors, a lone Skeleton Archers and a pair of Skeleton Archers to appear near them. Dispatch them all as you like, and then use your two Ornate Keys to access Level 6... Level 6: Trapped - MW06 ----------------------- Right away youll notice a pressure plate in front of you. Standing on it will close the gate and warp in three spires around you, so make sure youve got at least one Antivenom handy just in case. Kill them quickly, and the writing on the wall reads You are out prisoner now like the one below. Now, youve got a very large area to explore now with a lot of various offshoots to search. But before we can deal with that, theres a new enemy wandering around. A Ogre! There are very tough enemies and can cause you trouble if youre not careful. The best trick to do is to get them into a pattern. Because theyll change you if youre at a distance, you can play a back/forth game with them, whacking them from behind when they hit the wall. Be wary though, as they dont have to be facing you direct to damage you, they can also damage you if youre facing left/right, so dont be over confident and take it slowly bit by bit and youll eventually triumph. When you kill it, youll get a Sack containing two Herder Caps, a Burrow Rat Shank, some Mole Jerky and a Gold Key. Have a wander round and find all the paths, and you should also find a Milkreed to the south of the area. --- Secret 33 (L6.1) In the south-east are of this large room is a small little section with an empty Torch holder. Place a torch in there to open a nearby wall. Kill the Skeleton Warrior to claim your prize. - Fire Bomb x2 --- --- Secret 34 (L6.2) Where you pick up the Fire Bombs previous, turn and face north. Examine the wall and youll see a strange symbol there. Press it and youll find the Vault of the Orb. Stand on the pressure plate and throw a rock in to open the gate. Acquiring the orb however will cause two Mud Crabs to show up, so be careful. - Orb of Radiance --- --- Secret 35 (L6.3) In the North-west corner of the area is a path labelled Walkabout. To solve this little puzzle, you have to walk around the edge of the area in a clockwise path. So keep the left wall on your left the whole time, and youll hear click from the floor as you do so. After five clicks youll see a Rock appear in front of you. After eight a Skeleton Warrior will appear. Stand on the stop to kill him. After eleven clicks youll get a Sack with some goodies. - Speed Potion - Scroll Potion of Speed: 1 Flask, 1 Blloddrop Blossom, 1 Milkreed. --- Right next to the Walkabout area is a path that leads west. In this are youll be greeted by four Giant Spiders. Kill them and youll find they were guarding a Cutlass. Opposite those two areas will be a torch and a gate. Head on through and follow the path and on your right youll find an area called the Haunted Halls. Sounds great, lets head on in! In this area you can find a Shuriken on the floor. --- Secret 36 (L6.4) First, head left and in this little area, theres a switch - Ring Boots - Heavy Shield --- Now, wandering around this area is several Skeleton Warriors, but you shouldnt kill them, as you need them to stand on a pressure plate for you in the south-east section of the map. The best way to do this is to freeze him, using a Frost Bomb if you still have one. This will open a wall to the west, allowing access to an area with a group of four Skeleton Warriors for you to kill, and a Blooddrop Blossom, a Cave Nettle, two Tar Beads and a Round Key. --- Secret 37 (L6.5) To the north west of the pressure plate you can find a button on the wall of a pole pillar. Press it to open a wall on the other side of the pressure plate, to open an area with two Skeleton Archers. - Frostbite Necklace --- Once youve got that you can leave the area, and head through the brown gate thats nearby. Inside youll find eight Giant Snails, which shouldnt be a problem for you at this stage. Also, a couple of the snails here will respawn if you wander away from the area, so they can be useful for getting a bit of spare food if youre running low. Follow the path and eventually youll reach the Maze of Madness. To solve this little problem, heres what you do: from standing next to the writing go forward, left, forward, left and press the button on the wall. Turn 180 around and go forward, right, forward, forward, left and forward into the teleport. Step backwards into another teleport and the then step left into another one. From there you can access the Round Key. --- Secret 38 (L6.6) Press the button on the wall next to it and then step right three times and then back. This takes you out of the maze, and then from there you can follow the now open path to the south-west corner of the maze. - Spirit Mirror Pendant --- Now you can head all the way back to the large main area where you started, and head to the south-west area and open the gate labelled Halls of Fire. Theres a Fire Bomb in the little Alcove that well use later. First however, drop down that hole. In this area are five Crowerns, and two Wyverns. There are also quite a few items down here too: some Peasants Breeches, some Sandals, two Tar Beads, a Wooden box containing a Healing Potion and an Antidote, and a Scroll that reads simply Westmost. Next to the Teleport however is another hole for you to drop down. Down again and youll find a Baked Maggot, a Boiled Crag Beetle, three Frost Bombs, and a Blooddrop Blossom. --- Secret 39 (L6.7) Place a Rock on the pressure plate to open the gate; however you have to place in on the northwest corner so you can access it from the other side of the bars. Kill the two lone and two pairs of Scavengers that opening the gate releases. Theres two Tar Beads on the other side. Pick the rock back up to open the second gate. - Full Helmet --- Take the two teleports back up and then open the door next to the Mages Entrance writing. In this area, kill the cave crab. --- Secret 40 (L6.8) Simply drop down the hole in the middle of the room to find this secret. - Lurker Pants - Shuriken --- Teleport back up and go back to the room and down the path ahead. Theres a pressure plate up ahead that will start shooting Fireballs at you, so save before stepping on it if you wish. You can press a button on the wall to the North of pressure plate to open a little alcove which will help. You have to be quick here, so run down to the end of the corridor and grab the Fire Sword and Spell Scroll Fireball. Run back out of the corridor and heal yourself up. --- Secret 41 (L6.9) Youll have to go back down the corridor and press a button thats on the left side to the south of the pressure plate. Itll open a little section with another button in it. The button will reveal a staircase in the first little area. Head on up and in this little area youll have to fight two Uggardians. Kill then carefully, retreating if you need to heal up, and you can claim the reward. - Plate Gauntlets - Plate Cuirass --- With that done, head back down and go to the pit with the writing Mages Entrance next to it. First, throw over a rock onto the pressure plate and avoid the fireball fired at you. You now have to hit that face on the wall with a fireball. You can only do that if your Magician has his Fire Skill at level 13. If you dont have that then youll have to come back to this area later. When you can cross where the pit was, go left, and then left again. In the area beyond, youll find a few Uggardians floating around. Take care not to fall down the holes or when you get back theyll have respawned. --- Treasure #3 When theyre dead, drop down the west-most hole in the room. Yep, thats what the scroll meant. Wait for a few seconds for the gate to open and then kill the Cave Crab. Where it was youll find your second Treasure. Youll find yourself in familiar territory when the wall slides up, so teleport back up and go back to the room with all those pits. --- Time for another puzzle. Save first to stop you have having to walk all the way back if you screw up. Now, in the south-east area there will be a button on the wall. When you press it, a hole will close next to the pillar on the west side on the room. Quickly run over there and press the button there. This raises a platform on the opposite side of the pillar that allows you to access the area with the Round Key. Taking the Torch will fill another hole allowing you to access the main area. --- Secret 42 (L6.10) To find this secret you need to complete pressing the series of button. You already know the first two; the one in the south-east and then one of the eastside of the pillar. After that, press the one on the opposite, west side of the pillar and then the one on the north. With the removed torch now having filled in the hole you can quickly make your way to the final switch opposite on the south side. Itll open the wall behind you can release a Uggardians. - Sword of Nex - Ring Mail --- --- Secret 43 (L6.11) With the Sword of Nex in hand, head back to the face on the wall and then past it into what seems like a dead end. On the south wall however theres another symbol that you can press. - Access to the Fighter Challenge. --- The Fighters Challenge gate will open now that you have the Sword of Nex. This section leads to a large area that contains a large number of enemies, so be sure youre rested and have saved before continuing. Youll then be warped to an area with a nearly overwhelming twenty Scavengers and two double Scavengers! To survive this, back yourself into a corner to keep you mage safe and be sure to keep your health topped up. Itll be tough, but it is possible. When theyre all dead you can claim your items: a Fire Bomb, the Poison Bomb and a Gold Key. Use it to unlock the gate and get the Shield of Valour. --- Treasure #4 Next, check the middle of the western wall for a button, and itll open the wall revealing a Poison Bomb and your third Treasure. Once youve got this, use the teleport to go back to the main area. --- In the south-east section is an area labelled Sequencis, so open the gate. Theres two Cave Crabs wandering around here for you to kill, and then take the teleport. Youll then be constantly teleported between four locations. When you see the brown door, pull the handle to open it up and then kill the Giant Snail inside. This will likely take you several passes. Once its dead, go into the place it was and flip the lever. This will cause another door to open, which you should enter. In this area is a Cave Crab, and your fourth Round Key. Make sure to ignore the button on the wall in the room with the face, as it will just release a poison cloud. With that done, opposite where the teleport area was, theres a locked gate. Use your Round Key to open it to gain access to the Crystal of Life. Another Round Key on the next door will give you access to a Scroll This serum heals many diseases: 1 Flask, 1 Tar Bead, 1 Smile Bell. Another door to unlock will give you access to the stairs down. --- Secret 44 (L6.12) Iron Door #5 Before heading down, you can use your fourth Round Key to open the Iron Door. - Chitin Mail --- One final thing before heading down. Near the Iron Door is area called the Treasure Store, that contains three locked areas with special items in them, but you only have one Gold Key to open the doors, so you have to pick which one you want. Your choices are: North: Tome of Fire East: Crossbow South: two Fire Bombs, two Cave Nettles, two Tar beads, one Blooddrop Blossom and an Empty Flask With your choice of goodies selected, you can now head down to Level 7... Level 7: Ancient Chambers - MW07 -------------------------------- Right from the off youll see a Smile wandering around. Theres a total of 6 in this area, as long as you dont open the doors, which we wont do yet. First, kill all the Slimes, and then have a look around the area. There will be four metal doors with nearby buttons to open each one up Lets first start with the south-east room. Inside youll find two Slimes, a Tattered Cloak and a Note I discovered that if you open all but one door, the one where the draft is strongest, a wall slides right open. Im going to leave some provision there to lighten my load. Toorum. Theres no enemies on the north-west room, just a Grim Cap and a Tar Bead. --- Secret 45 (L7.1) As the note said, you need to close a door. If you look at the map youll see the four doors. You need to close the West one, thats closest to the stairs going up. - Ring Graves - Battle Axe - Throwing Knife x3 --- Continue on and youll find the Maze of Shadows. As the name suggests, you need to keep to the shadows to make it through. Its not that hard, and you can also find a nice selection of goodies: a Hardstone Bracelet, a Spell Scroll Darkness, two Smile Bells, a Wooden Box containing two Herder Caps, some Mole Jerky, a Baked Maggot, some Pitroot Bread, a Boiled Crag Beetle, and a Burrow Rat Shank, and a Note The Torches remain out of my grasp. I try to reach for them but the light they shine plays tricks on me. -Toorum. If youre having trouble getting through, heres how from standing next to the writing: forward, right, right, forward, forward, forward, forward, left, left, left, left, forward, forward, left, left, forward, forward, right, forward, forward, right, right, right, right, forward, forward. --- Secret 46 (L7.2) When going through the Maze of Shadows, youll likely find a Wooden Box on the floor. Nearby there will be a switch on the wall, allowing access to a Teleport. Youll be warped to the secret area with two small Herders. - Throwing Axe x2 - Crossbow Quarrel x2 - Mole Jerky --- --- Secret 47 (L7.3) Before using the Teleport back, look for a symbol on the wall. Press it to find the next secret. - Frost Bomb x4 --- Now, head back to the end of the Maze and flip the lever to open the gate. In this are youll find an Uggardian floating around. --- Secret 48 (L7.4) Drop down the first hole on your left, near the face to find this one. - Bracelet of Tirin --- Once youre done that, follow the path along and youll find a pressure plate. When you step on it youll release six Smiles into the area. You should turn around and deal with the one that came from the now open door behind you. Once that ones dead you can deal with the rest without fear of a back attack. When youre all dead you can grab the Boiled Crab Beetle, the Diviners Cloak and an iron Key in the room behind the door. Use it on the nearby keyhole, and wander over the hole. Theres another three Uggardians here for you to kill. When theyre dead, wander to the gate and youll see a button on the wall. When you press it youll have to avoid two energy balls that need to his the cogs on the wall. Its simple enough, do that and the get will open. Once thats done, continue through the next gate and kill the seven Slimes that are wandering around, youll also find a Crystal of Life in an area opposite. Now, to the south there are two doors. Dont press the nearby button as youll just shoot a fireball out of the face on the wall, so pull the chain to open the door. Theres a simple puzzle here, but it can fool you if youre not careful. Step onto the left pressure plate to raise the gate and then quickly step onto the right one and then back to the left. This will keep the gate open so the energy ball and sail through. Doing so will open up two walls, giving you access to three Uggardians in that area. Kill them all and you can flip the lever on the wall to open the door and find a Note on the floor --- Secret 49 (L7.5) Go back to the two pressure plates and go into the area thats opened up. The secret is counted as the section next to the alcove by the gate. - Spell Scroll: Invisibility - Shaman Staff --- Take the path to the North of the Crystal of Life and you can find a Milkreed on the floor to your left, and then down the path towards the Teleport. Id recommend saving before you do the next Secret. --- Secret 50 (L7.6) Drop down into the pit and youll find yourself in a whole set of pressure plates that will fire poison balls at you. You have to side-step and move forward to get to the other side of the room. You might get hit a few times, but if one of your party members dies you should start again. When you reach the other end youll find the secret in the corner. - Boots of Valor --- To get out, pull the lever and youll release two Giant Spiders and two Cave Crabs on the far side of the room to kill. On the south side of the teleport, where they came from, you can find a Burrow Rat Shank. Teleport back up, and then use the nearby one again. Step into the teleport again to reach another area, where you can find a Sack with two Blooddrop Blossoms, a Tar Bead and an Empty Flask. Drop down the pit, and in this area youll find an Ogre to kill, and a bunch of items to claim: A Heavy Shield, a Crossbow Quarrel, a Milkreed and a Grim Cap. Then head up the stairs and go left. --- Secret 51 (L7.7) Youll eventually find an area with five levers. To open the secret, pull the left-most lever down and then up, the middle lever down and the right-most lever down. - Assassins Dagger --- Now, move West, past the stairs you previously came up, and youll see a room full of pit that alternate being closed and open. To get across, you have to wait for them to close and then run to the middle to stop the energy ball hitting the wall. Once youre in the middle of the area, theres a Brace of Fortitude on the right side in an alcove and a button on the wall two steps to the left of cog. You have to be quick to press it before the pits open again. Doing do will release two Uggardians into the area which you should retreat to solid ground before trying to kill. Once done you can head across the pits to the other side. Open the gate on the other side and go forward, and then forward again at the intersection around the corner. Open the gate here and kill the three Uggardians on the other side. Open the next door and youll find the stairs down and a Skull. However, we wont be going down those stairs, and I dont just mean now I mean at all. --- Secret 52 (L7.8) Iron Door #6 Continue on past the skull and open the gate. This area has a little puzzle for you to solve. You have to block all the energy balls from hitting the cogs, and they get fired quicker and quicker, so make sure youre not carrying too much. The sequence goes as follows: middle, middle, left, left, right, middle, right, left, left, right, middle, left, middle, right, middle, left, right, left, right, middle, left, middle, middle, right, middle, left, right, left, right, middle. Phew! Itll likely take you a few goes, but if youre careful youll get it. - Spell Scroll: Enchant Fire Arrow - Chitin Boots --- Now that youve done that, you can drop down the hole but only if you want a complete map as theres no items down there. Head back the way you came, past the stairs down and take the first left. In this area you can find two Milkreeds, a Uggardian wandering around and some Tentacles will attack through the grate on the floor in the area with the gate. --- Secret 53 (L7.9) Now, to find a secret way down to Level 8. So to the north wall of this little area, near to the gate and you should spot a symbol on the wall. Press it and to your right down the corridor the wall will have opened. It wont stay open for long though, so be quick. - Secret access to Level 8 --- Once youve found it, head on down to Level 8... Level 8: The Vault - MW08 ------------------------- Right in front of you is a lever. Pull it and go forward and youll see a Crystal of Life to your left. Go past it and on your right youll find a Note with a little drawing on it thats telling you what Ive already told you, and thats the secret entrance to this level. A little futher on and youll find a Cave Nettle and beyond that is the stairs down. That seemed a tad easy dont you think? Well thats the trick to Level 8. Getting through it is easy, finding its hidden reward, no so much. So, backtrack, past the gate that you opened and down the corridor, and youll find the stairs that I told you not to go down before. Here you can find a Spell Scroll Shock Shield, and two Cave Nettles. --- Secret 54 (L8.1) Right where the two Cave Nettles are is a button on the wall for you to press. Theres a Spider in the area, but it shouldnt be a problem. - Milkreed - Grim Cap - Blueberry Pie --- Now, head back to the stairs that you did go down and follow the path. When you hear the walls slide up beware as it will release a Uggardian and a Ogre for you to deal with, which might corner you if you dont quickly move out of their way. Once theyre dead, you can press the button on the wall to open the gate, and this will also start lightning bolts flying down the corridor. Obviously you need to avoid them as you make your way down there, so quickly run down and open the door, retreat while it opens up, and then run in. If you get hurt too much, you can also retreat to the Crystal of Life. Theres an Uggardian wandering around this area, a Baked Maggot on the floor, and three Lightning Bombs in a little alcove. Youll also find a lever that you can pull to open the nearby door. Once again youll have to move quickly to open the next gate down the corridor and run in there to avoid the lightning bolts. In this area you can see an Uggardian and two Giant Spiders on the other side of the gate, so you can deal with them when youre ready. When theyre dead, pull the lever to open the next gate. --- Secret 55 (L8.2) In this area you can find three buttons on the wall. One in the dark room near the spider eggs, one in the north-east corner of the room with the torch, and one on the east side of the pillar. Pressing them will reveal 3 rooms with pressure plates and one with a Baked Maggot. Place something on all of the plates will open a corner section of the wall. - Plate Gauntlets - Plate Boots. --- In the next area down the corridor, youll find three Uggardians and a Giant Spider. But if youre lucky theyll wander into the path of the lightning bolt and get themselves kill, which I a trick you can use to your advantage by luring them out there yourself. When theyre dead, pull on the lever on the wall to open the door you pasted back down the corridor. Before you go there however, check the wall opposite and to your left for a button. Press it and a wall will slide up, allowing you access to the end of the corridor where you can quickly snag three Lightning Bombs next to the face that shooting lighting at you. --- Secret 56 (L8.3) To the left of this newly opened wall is a button that youll be able to see on the wall. Pressing it will open the wall opposite where you got the Lightning Bombs before. In that area there will be a Ogre wandering around for you to kill. - Lightning Rod - Gear Key --- Now you need to go back down the corridor to the newly opened area, which will be on your left about halfway down. There youll be greeted by two Giant Spiders. Kill them and then take the left path to find three Throwing Axes. Go back down the other path and take the right to find two Frost Arrows and a Note The court and sentenced me to exile here in the bowls of the mountain couldnt have known of the existence of these tunnels. But even though mount Grimrock is in the most remote part of the realm, is it possible that the King would let such dangerous powers breed within his domain. Toorum When youve got that, you can open the gate up ahead using the lever. In the next series of corridors will be four Uggardians and two Ogre for you to kill. Always remember you can back track to rest if needs be. Also scattered about the area will be three Tar Beads, two Lightning Bombs, and some Pitroot Bread. Head to the south-east part of the area to find a teleport for you to use. The area it warps you too contains a large number of herders: one small, two double group of small, four Medium, and two large. Once theyre all dead you can grab the loot: four Milkreeds, two Throwing Axes, a Skull, and two Brass Keys. You need to keep hold of that Skull for use in a later level. Use one of those two Key to open the gate and teleport back, and then use the second to open the gate to the west of the corridor area. In the next area youll find four pressure plates which need to be stepped on simultaneously. Doing so will cause the walls to slide and a reveal four Giant Spiders and a Uggardian. When theyre dead you can pull on the now accessible lever to open the gate. In the next, rather large area you can fight four Uggardians and a Giant Spider. When theyre dead, theres also a Grim Cap, a Knife, some Pitroot Bread, some Mole Jerky, two Shurikens, and a Leather Cap. --- Secret 57 (L8.4) In the north of this area by the gate is a small dead-end area. Nearby is a button for you to press that will open a wall in this dead-end. Theres a Wooden Box in here with your goodies. - Throwing Axe x2 - Crossbow Quarrel x3 --- Open the nearby gate and in the next area, watch out for the Giant Spider on the other side on the pits. As it moves itll stand on pressure plates and fire lightning bolts across the room. You can kill it across the pits using your throwing items and magic. Flip the lever to open the gate back the beginning of the level, allowing access to the Crystal of Life if you need it. Drop down the hole in the room with the Giant Spider to find two Pitroot Bread and two Throwing Axes. Teleport back up, and in the Giant Spider room again. On the wall there are two buttons; one next to the lever and one next to the gate that wont open on the northern side of the room. Go through the newly opened gate and you can flip the lever on the other side to access where the spider was to gain any thrown items back. --- Secret 58 (L8.5) You can access The Vault by just pressing the button on the wall, but to claim The Dismantler as your own you need to a little trick that Indiana Jones would be proud of. Place an Item you dont want on the table where The Dismantler is and then you can take it without worrying. - The Dismantler --- --- Treasure #5 Theres one more Secret that this room is hiding. Next to the Torch on the wall is a button for you to press, which will allow you to access to your forth Treasure. --- Now that you have The Dismantler, you can leave the level, so head to the North-West corner of the map. --- Secret 59 (L8.6) Iron Door #7 You may remember earlier in the level you find a Key, which you can now use to open the Iron Door. - Helmet of Valour - Frost Quarrel x4 --- With that done, head down to Level 9... Level 9: Goromorg temple I - MW09 --------------------------------- In the immediate area there will be an Uggardian wandering around. When its dead, have a look at the curtain on the wall. Attack it and itll get cut apart and while theres nothing behind this one, other hide secrets. Continue forward, past the left turn which is a dead-end and on your right will be a dead-end with a curtain behind which is some Pitroot Bread. Nearby is a door labelled Holy Scriptures and the curtain next to it has a button hidden underneath. Opening the door, theres an Uggardian in there to kill. Kill him will drop the Ornate Key, and you can find two Scrolls in the room: We, the Order of the Sacred Fire, have given an oath, to protect the Inner Sanctum and guard The Undying One that is held below. This we shall promise with our lives and for all ages to come. Two times left She slithers, Once right, Once left, Three time right and twice more is left. This She repeats twice. Go down the corridor and youll find the Chequered Room. This puzzle is simpler than it looks. Behind the curtain in the far-left corner is a Scroll that reads This is the Chequered Room. Dont let it fool you. To solve the puzzle you have to place items on the pressure plates in a chequered pattern, so place items on your left and right on the first row, then in the middle on the second, left and right on the third and in the middle on the final one, allowing you to leave the room. Take the first left you find and youll run into the Armoury. Kill the Uggardian inside and you can claim a good amount of kit: five Broadhead Arrows, a Lightning Bomb, a Longsword, Ring Mail and Iron Basinet. --- Secret 60 (L9.1) In the little area with the boxes, destroy them and press the button on the wall and then kill the Uggardian. - Norja --- Go back and take the only path you havent yet. If you just walk blindly down the corridor, youll find yourself going around in circles. The trick is that you get secretly turned around in this corridor after taking two corners. If you watch the area careful youll spot the point. When you see it, turn around 180 and continue forward. Theres another one past another two corners that youll need to watch out for. Eventually youll reach a door and some writing that says Temple Grounds. Trespassers will be hunted down. Open the door and you can read You have been warned. Continue on and take the left of the two paths, and in this area youll run into two of a new enemy, an Ice Lizard. Theyre not too tough, but theyll do a bit of damage if youre not careful, so take the usual precautions. In the south-west of this area is a metal door that you need to open, but to do so you have to flip a lever in the large area to the east. Its not hard to find and in the room youll find a Spell Scroll Lightning Bolt, which even if you dont take with you, you should remove from the alcove and place on the floor. Grabbing it will make an Ice Lizard appear nearby, so be careful. --- Secret 61 (L9.2) Right to the north of the metal door, and around a few corners, is a small cul-de-sac, and has a button on the wall. Pressing it will open a secret area thats back near the torch. - Lightning Bomb - Fire Bomb - Pit Fighter Gauntlets --- Continue on and youll encounter another large room with ten Ice Lizards wandering around, one of whom will drop an Ornate Key, and theres a Circlet of War on the floor in the corner. Head south and then left and then left again and follow the corridor to find two Lightning Bombs. Head back and through the open door and first go right to find a Tar Bead, and then turn around and go the other way to find another one. Continue on and open the gate, and then on the right youll find the Outer Sanctum. Use your Ornate Key to open the door. When you walk in three Uggardians will appear and the door seal behind you. Kill them quickly and then to reopen the door, theres a button on the south-east wall on the central room. Now, to solve the puzzle in this area, you need to enter the teleports in the correct odder, based on the nearby text. But what could the order be? Try stepping into one of the teleports and when youre warped back, youll see a Scroll in front of you III II I III. This then links to the text written on the wall in each area: North: Hands that slaughter, Eyes that deceive South: Sun of Hatred West: Three ancient beings of deep So, the correct sequence is: West, North, South, West. Youll then get warped to a new area. First, do not step to the left or right near the faces, as theyll release poison at you. --- Secret 62 (L9.3) Drop down the hole and on the floor youll find a Tar Bead, some Rotten Pitroot Bread and in the closed room you a reach a Scroll Stand where the shadows on the torches cross and toss a Rock will all your might to the East and to the North. But where is this location? From standing in front of the gate with your back to it, go forward three times and then left once. Now, throw a rock to the East and to the North and the gate will open. - Cuirass of Valour --- Teleport back up and place a rock on the pressure plate youre standing on. Your goal now is to get past the intermittent teleport and not fall down the hole, which comes down to quick reactions and luck more than anything. Save beforehand so that you can reload if you run low on health from too many falls. Once youre past, flip the lever, but this one only one of two. The other one is on the other side of that gate and you need to quickly place a rock on the pressure plate on the other side before the hole opens again. This will open the metal door allowing you go get the Ornate Key, and then use the teleport at the far end to get back. Leave the Outer Sanctum area and go right and follow the corridor. In the small left path youll find two Tar Beads and the further on youll find the Pillared Hallway. To get through this, think back to the Scroll you found at the beginning of the lever about the snake. What you need to do is move forward along the corridor, alternating between the left and right side as follows: left, left, right, left, right, right, right, left, left, left, left, right, left, right, right, right, left, left, and youll make it to the other side. Theres a series of corridors here, there are two Uggardians wandering around and you can find a Rock and a Note The Mountain was shaken by sudden tremors again. They seem to emanate from below my feet, from the core of the mountain. I think Im getting close to the source. Toorum. Theres also a lit room with two of another new enemy, a Shrakk Torr. It might have a strange name but it can be an annoying little creature as it has a very quick attack. Kill them, and then cut the curtain right in front of where you came in to find the Lurker Hood. When you find the metal door, take two steps back from it and turn left and youll see a button on the wall to press, opening it up. Grab the Book of Infinite Wisdom and the walls will slide up, revealing a previous hidden area with a Sulphurous potion. Standing on the pressure plate will open the door up, so go through and youll find a Crystal of Life. This room has a puzzle where you need to place certain items on the little alcoves to open the door. There four in total as follows: North-East: Games Bane, with head of steel Broadhead Arrow South-East: Tear of the land Rock South-West: Severed Dread Skull (I told you to keep it) North-West: Unraveller of Mysteries a Key (you should have two) Youll head a click when you put the right items down. Once the door is open you can reclaim your items and continue onwards. Theres a Scroll You have proven to be a true champion, strong in might and will. Yet beware, there are slumbering things down below, far more powerful then you are. A little further on is a rom marked as Treasury. Inside you can use your Gold key to open one of the gates to access your treasure like you did before. This time youve got: North: Serpent Bracer, Fairfeather Cap South: Book of Infinite Wisdom West: Two Frost Bombs, Plate Greaves Pick which one you want and then continue forward, past the locked door. --- Secret 63 (L9.4) Iron Door #8 At the very end of the corridor youll find an alcove and some writing that reads Made from the dead, Guiloteened Man does not need me. Now you may remember way back on Level 2 I told you to keep hold of a Bone Amulet, well this is what you need it for. Place it in the alcove to open the door. - Zhanduls Orb --- Use the Ornate Key to open the gate and move forward. Down this spiralling path youll run into two Ogres. After the first corner, take four steps forward and look to the right and youll see a button. Remember it as its important. Around the next two corners youll meet your first Ogre. Back up as you fire spells at him and lead him to a place you can deal with him better. Go back and youll run into the second one at the end. Lead him back but on your way remember that button, or youll end up trapped when a wall blocks your exit from the area. With both of the Ogres dead, you and now head down to Level 10... Level 10: Goromorg temple II - MW10 ----------------------------------- First, go left and around the corner and youll find a Round Key. Take it and head back, past the stairs and open the gate with the lever. In this room you can find a Baked Maggot, and under a curtain is a key hole for you to use the Round Key on. Doing so will release two Shrakk Torr and an Ice Lizard. Kill them and you can pick up the three Tar Beads. In the next little area, slice at the curtains again to reveal two buttons and then move into the large room nearby. Slice at the two curtains in here to find two alcoves, one of which has a red gem in it. Swap it over to the other one and then drop a rock on the pressure plate in the middle of the room. Grab the Round Key and follow the corridor and open the gate. Doing so will open the nearby walls too, releasing an Uggardian and three Shrakk Torr. You can grab the Gauntlets of Valour from the alcove in one of the opened areas, and head into the opened room where you can find a Note I have come to the realisation that you can only traverse through the dungeon starting from the top of the mountain. I think that the dungeons were designed that way. But why? -Toorum . Use the Round Key in the same place as before and then kill the two Ice Lizards and Shrakk Torr. With that done, head back to the middle room and grab the Rock you placed and the Red Gem from the alcove. Youll need it later. In the little corridor with the two buttons, you need to solve a small puzzle. The button closest to the closed door alternates the open/cloased gates and the other one fires an energy ball across the room. You have to press that button, wait for it to get past one door and then hit the other button to allow it to go through. Doing so will open the door to The Inner Sanctum. Stepping on the pressure plate will open the next door and all the ones beyond and even the walls too, so stay standing on it and youll be shown a new enemy; a Goromorg. These creatures are very powerful, and have a wide variety of magical attacks to throw at you. Not only that, but theyre covered by a shield that you have to destroy before you can hurt them and to top it all off, they can even open door when chasing you. They are however quite weak, and once youve removed the shield they should go down quite quickly. There two in the area ahead, so try to take them on one at a time to make things easier for yourself. When youre dead, you check around the two side rooms. The East one has two Crossbow Quarrels and the west one has a Baked Maggot and two Throwing Axes. The west room also contains a button that will activate a teleport and spawn three more Goromorg for you to deal with When theyre dead you can use the teleport. In this area you can find a Crystal of Life and the stairs down, but the way beyond will be blocked until we finish this level, so dont bother going down just yet. --- Secret 64 (L10.1) Iron Door #9 In the north-west corner of this area, near the Crystal of Life youll find the door. Cut the nearby curtain and youll see an Alcove. Place the Red Jewel for earlier there and the door will open. - Throwing Axe - Crookhorn Longbow --- Press the button on the wall in the south-east corner of the room to open the door, and in the area beyond youll have to fight a Shrakk Torr and two Goromorg. Kill them and get the Cave Nettle from the floor, and then open the door to fight another two Shrakk Torr and find the Greaves of Valour. Head out of the east door and around the two left corners ahead and youll find an area with a Longsword. Continue on and go right and youll find a gate to open. In the next area there are three Shrakk Torr and a Goromorg to kill and you can find two Shurikens, and to the north theres three Poison Bombs, and two frost Bombs. --- Secret 65 (L10.2) Now, drop down the hole next to the closed door and youll find four Cave Crabs to kill and a few items to collect: a Tar Bead, two Shurikens, three Frost Bombs and a Milkreed. Head up the stairs to find the secret. - Shield of the Elements --- Step on the pressure plate to open the door and then head to the west side of the room and open the gate there. --- Secret 66 (L10.3) On the south side of the area theres a small area with a torch, on the wall opposite theres a button that will open it up allowing you to access the other side of the Crystal of Life and some items. - Blooddrop Blossom x2 - Fire Quarrel x4 - Note Ive seen similar crystals in the Temple of Nex but compared to these huge formations, they were withered and lifeless. Those crystals certainly didnt have enough power in them to bring a fallen companion back to life. I wonder how many times I can still cheat death. Toorum --- Theres a Full Helmet on the floor and then place and Rock on the pressure plate to open the door and then quickly sidestep to avoid the Lighting Bolt heading your way. Head over and youll find a locked door that needs two keys that you dont have. Keep doing and youll have two areas to head into: The Caverns and The Shine. Lets do The Shrine first. Right in front of you are two Throwing Axes, and in the main room youll find the Ornate Key sitting in a rather obvious position. Taking it will cause six of the grates on the floor to suddenly sprout Tentacles and two Goromorgs to appear. Grabbing the Ornate Key and quickly retreating to the entrance of the area would be your best bet to take them out easily, before them taking care of the tentacles one by one. Next up head into The Caverns area. In this very large area are three Scavengers, two pairs of Scavengers and four Ogres, one of whom will drop a Sack containing two Cave Nettles, two Tar Beads and a Smile Bell and theres also two Throwing Knives on the floor as well as some Pitroot bread and a Note Ive been wandering in this same area for a long time now. My provisions are running out but I think this cavern is my best bet for finding a hidden room or some creatures I could hunt for food. Toorum. In the middle of the large room, are two doors, one to the north which contains two Ice Lizards and a Throwing Axe, and one to the south which have a Scavenger, two pairs of Scavengers and a Note The Placement of the pillar by the row of lever is most peculiar. Ill have to inspect them more closely. -Toorum. --- Secret 67 (L10.4) On the east side on the room is a pillar next to a hole in the floor. On the west side of it is a button for you to press. This opens up a wall on the other side of the pillar in a little cul-de-sac. - Phalanx Helmet - Hardstone Bracelet - Tattered Cloak - Ancient Axe - Note Finally, Ive discovered a stash of supplies but once I got in here, the wall closed shut behind me. I have been too confident in myself. I thought I knew how the rules of the dungeon worked Toorum - Note My ink is starting to run dry and I havent had a crumb to eat in days. I can hear them whispering behind the walls. They knew I wasnt on their side. Im too weak to walk. Im trapped. If only I could re... - Remains of Toorum --- Poor Toorum! But if you want to help him, take his remains and use them on the Crystal of Life. Itll net you an Achievement too, so theres no reason not to. --- Secret 68 (L10.5) Now, back in the large room, on the east side youll notice three pits, you need to drop into the north-west one. Go around the path and open the door. Follow the area are youll see the items rest in an alcove. Just to warn you, when you pick it up, itll release four Cave Crabs, two large Herders, and two small Herders, so make sure youre ready. - Icefall Hammer --- You can find two Throwing Knifes in the areas they were hiding in, and going back to where you fell down youll see that a gate has opened up too, allowing you access to an area with seven Slimes. Theres also some Pitroot bread, two Tar Beads, a Boiled Crag Beetle, three Poison Bombs, a Slime Bell, a Shuriken, and a Skull, which should be your last one. With all that done, head up the stairs and stand on the Pressure plate to open the wall and get back through. Opposite where you come out of that area will be five levers on the wall. From left to right, set them up like this: down, down, up, down, up. This will cause a pit to close behind you, allowing you to access another Ornate Key. Grabbing it will cause three Goromorgs to appear for you to deal with. When you get back to the room where you need up use the two Ornate Keys, some Tentacles will attack from the grate on the floor and there will be three Goromorgs wandering around. Kill them and use the Ornate Keys to open the door. --- Secret 69 (L10.6) In the room you just unlocked with the teleport, theres a button in the north-west corner. Press it and drop down the hole. Opposite there teleport down here is a button on the wall that you must press to claim your prize without being badly hurt. - Scaled Cloak - Burrow Rat Shank x2 - Tar Bead --- Teleport back up and press the button again to reactivate the teleport and step through. Pick up the Prison Key in front of you and then open the door with the nearby button to find yourself back at the stairs down the Level 11. With the Prison Key in hand its time to head down... Level 11 however is very small, too small to give it its own section. To your left in an alcove is a Scroll This Level is Sealed. Sounds fair enough, so theres nothing more to do but head on down to Level 12... Level 12: The Prison - MW11 --------------------------- Use the Prison Key up ahead to open the door. This are is quite big and has a number of enemies in it, those being four Goromorgs and four of a new kind of enemy, the Warden. While their basic movements and attacks resemble an Ogre, they are far more powerful. As theyre made of metal, Lightning attack work best, but normal attacks are ok as well. The best idea is to get them in a similar charging pattern to the Ogre and attack them from behind. They too can attack from the side, so watch out for that. Kill them each one by one if you can to avoid any trouble. Theres only one item for you to pick up here a Scroll The seals of the gates will burst open if the shackles of the prisoner are broken. You can find it in the south-west corner of the map opposite the little area with the three Goromorg statues in it. This place is also important to remember for later on. When youve killed everything, drop down one of the two pits that are next to each other in the north-west corner of the large room. Level 13: The Graveyard - MW12 ------------------------------ This level is a bit free-roaming, so try not to get too lost, and theres a total of seven Shrakk Torr flying around, but as they move around a lot, its hard to tell you exactly where theyll be, but they shouldnt pose a problem at this point. Right where you drop down will be a Steel Gear, which you need to pick up and a button on the wall to press. Go through the nearby gate and pick up the Ore, which you need, and the Sack containing three Torches, which you only need to take if you want them. Go out of the room another way and theres some Ring Gauntlets to you right. Head south and kill the Tentacles that show up and pick up the Infuser to your left. Go east here and youll find a Baked Maggot on the floor. Continue east and take the first left you can into a small area where youll find the Bladed Gear. Tentacles will show up to block your path but you can kill them easily enough. --- Secret 70 (L13.1) A little to the east of this is a small area pointing south. On the wall is a button that allows you to get here. - Baked Maggot - Burrow Rat Shank - Fire Bomb x4 --- --- Secret 71 (L13.2) North of here is a gate and to the right of that a small area with a button on the wall. A Tentacle will block your path to the room where the final secret is. - Empty Flask x2 - Tar Bead x4 - Slime Bell --- Next to the door Marked No Entry, which should be open if you pushed the first button like I told you, there will be a Tattered Cloak on the floor. Before going down the corridor, go west and youll find a Boiled Crag Beetle on your right and a button above it that lets you get to the teleport back up to Level 12. But first we want to explore that corridor. Follow the fairly linear path down the corridor, killing the seven Giant Spiders and two Cave Crabs that you run into. One of them will drop a Gold Key that you can use at the end of the Corridor. There youll find the Supplies, which has a Crystal of Life and another three doors for you to pick from: East: two Lightning Bombs, two Fire Bombs and a Fire Blade South: Plate Cuirass, Plate Boots, Plate Greaves, Plate Gauntlets, Full Helmet West: three Torches, three Tar Beads, three Blooddrop Blossoms, four Grim Caps, one Healing Potion, one Energy Potion. Pick whichever one you want. --- Treasure #6 About halfway down the corridor, youll likely find a Wooden Box with two Mole Jerky, some Pitroot Bread, an Empty Flask and two torches in it. Theres a button on the wall. Press it and in the long dead-end to the west the wall will open up and you can get your sixth Treasure. --- With all that done and your four items in hand, youre now ready to finish the game. However, inserting all the items into the machine on Level 12 will seal the area off and start the endgame sequence, so be sure youve done everything you can before you do. As for recommendations as to what to bring, if possible bring everything you can, but if you are close or over your quick-speed weight limit, its best to stick to things you can throw; bombs and the like, especially lightning things, and you shouldnt need too much food, only two pieces each assuming you eat before starting. Level X: Endgame - MW13 ----------------------- With all four items inserted into the Machine, it will come to life and start rolling around the room, trying to squash you. If it does, its instant death, so watch out. Not only that, but a whole host of creatures will spawn into the room, including Uggardians, Shrakk Torr and Ice Lizards. So, as quickly as you can run to the south-east corner of the map, to where I told you to remember those statues and youll find a teleport, which you should promptly use. Youre safe, for now, so head around this area and up the stairs. Here youll find the Tomb of the Designers. Theres a small puzzle here which youll need to be careful of. On the right as you walk in is a button on the wall, and theres two button on either side of you on the other side of the corridor. When you stand on the pressure plate it will release poison clouds into the area and you have to press the three buttons to open the doors. Be sure to press the lone switch behind you first, otherwise you wont be able to get out ahead. Once out, cure anyone whos been poisoned, and heal up. You can now go left or right here, so first head left and you can drop down the hole if youd like to, but theres nothing down there other than a Shrakk Torr. Your aim here is to throw a rock across the corridor to the pressure palte, which will require timing as the teleport only vanishes for a moment. With the first pit closed, you now need to press the button on the wall on your left-hand side when the teleport closes. Doing so will close the second pit and allow you to grab the first Ornate Key. Down the right path youll see three pressure plates. Place a Rock on each one in order to cross safely, as they dont first anything the first time you step on them, but they do on every time after that. Doing so will net you another Ornate Key. --- Treasure #7 Near the three pressure plates is a symbol on the wall for you to press that will reveal to you the final Treasure. --- Use the two Ornate Keys to open the door and inside kill the Uggardian. There are two scrolls on either side of the room: We are The Designers who built this prison for a single purpose, to hold The Undying One until the gears of time finally come to rest. Should the Undying be awakened we left behind the only weapon capable of taming the beast. The Weapon of Power is hidden in the shadows of this tomb but to truly hurt the Undying, you need to take him apart, piece by piece. When he is incomplete he can be slain. Seeing as we need to take care of the Undying, considering we set him free, getting hold of the Weapon of Power would be a nice idea. To find it, theres a clue in the second Scroll, in that it hides in darkness. Remove the Torch from the wall and your hands if youre using one, or cast the Darkness Spell if youre using magic as a light. The Weapon of Power will appear and picking it up will heal your characters and create a teleport behind you. When youre ready its time to face The Undying One. Youll be warped back to Level 12. As well as The Undying One, youll also have a random host of respawning enemies to deal with, which can often trap you in a corner if youre not careful, allowing The Undying One to roll over and kill you, so be careful when moving around. If you get too hurt, or get blocked, try to drop down to Level 13, so you can rest up and then teleport back up. Also, Scattered around the area on the floor you can find three Gold Keys, which you can use to unlock the door to find a Lightning Staff, four Lightning Bombs, and a Sack containing four Healing potions. To fight The Undying One, you need to use the Weapon of Power. Fire it at the rolling monstrosity and itll shut down for about ten seconds. While its stopped, run up to it and grab one of the four items that you put into it earlier. Do this four times and youll finally be able to damage it. It obviously will have high health, but lightning based damage works best. So use The Dismantler, Lightning Bolt magic and the Weapon of Power, which wont stop it now, to whack it as quickly as you can and eventually youll finally finish him off. Congratulations of escaping Grimrock! +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | Monsters - LG02 | +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Cave Crab --------- As you might expect by the name, these very are very large crabs. Youll see them wandering around from Level 5 downwards. Like normal crabs, they move sideways and attack forward, and because of their hard outer shell they can take quite a few knocks before dying. Like with most enemies, keep out of their attack range and wail on then while you can. Crowern ------- Youll run into these flying foes on Level 3. With a forward swooping attack that can cross sections to snag you. They can fly over pits to attack too. While quite weak and fairly easy to kill if you can land your attacks, they can be a nuisance if encountered in a large group. Giant Snail ----------- These overgrown garden menaces are the first enemy youll run into in Grimrock, and certainly the easiest. Although dont be too overconfident when facing them without any equipment, so be cautious. Another bonus is that they almost always drop a Snail Slice, which is a good food resource. Giant Spider ------------ As the name might suggest, these are large eight-legged critters. Their quick movement speed and quick attack make them annoying in their own right, but add onto that the fact that they will very easily poison you, and youll be quite right to get nervous when you hear their skittering feet. Best thing to do it to take them one by one and rest while you can. Goromorg -------- These tough, creepy-looking creatures, which youll first run into around Level 10, can be deadly if youre not careful. While at first glance they can seem invulnerable due to their shield, this is only temporary, and can be destroyed with several direct attacks, revealing that their physical self is actually quite weak. However, they can cast most of your offensive spells back at you, which can make them very tricky in large groups. Green Slime ----------- Giving themselves away with their distinctive green glow (which may or may not be radioactive), the Green Slimes can not only attack you through bars and gates in the area, but also inflict disease on your party members. They have a good amount of health and a medium attack speed, so be sure you dont let your guard down when they show up. Herder ------ These things come in three types. The Small ones are quick on their keep and will throw Poison Bolts at you, but they are quite weak and can be finished off quickly. The Mediums ones are the type your encounter first, and have nothing in the way of a special attack and are quite easy to manage if youre careful. The Large ones however will be slightly trickier. They can release a cloud of poisonous gas in any of the four directions to attack you, so its often best to keep your distance while you attack them. Ice Lizard ---------- Looking like a small dinosaur, these creatures show up in quite large numbers in Level 9 and can catch you off guard if youre not careful. While possessing no special attack, they have a lot of health for you to whittle down and, as you might imagine, as immune to ice attacks. Just be sure that they dont blindside you. Ogre ---- These big guys, as you might imagine, are very tough. Not only can they attack to their side, but they also have a charge attack that can knock all your party members badly. The best way to deal with them is to get them into a charging pattern, where they charge back and forth around a small section and you back attack them before they turn around, firing off spells and throwing equipment the rest of the time. Scavenger --------- These little crawling critters can be very annoying. While theyre not very strong or powerful, they can sometimes seem relentless due to their fast attack speed and tendency to block you into corners to wail on you, they are certainly one of the more annoying creatures youll encounter. Shrakk Torr ----------- The third flying creature youll run into, these giant bugs have a fast attack that can be annoying, but as theyre rather weak physically, they shouldnt pose you too much of a problem unless theyre in groups. They can also inflict disease. Skeleton Archer --------------- Typically coming in pairs, these undead creatures will usually try to keep their distance for you while that attack. Obviously this means getting close is useful while they try to move around. Being undead, theyre immune to Poison attacks. Skeleton Warrior ---------------- Showing up around Level 2, these armoured warriors can be rather tricky to deal with when they attack in groups, due to their rather quick attacks and medium health. Not only that, but they will often appear in groups of four at once. Being undead, like the Skeleton Archer, theyre immune to Poison attacks. Tentacles --------- Appearing from metal grates on the floor, whatever these tentacles are attached to is unknown, but youll know when they show up. While theyre not extremely dangerous, they can often inflict Paralyse on your party members, which prevents them from attacking. Uggardian --------- Being immune to fire for obvious reasons, these floating creatures can be annoying to deal with, due to their strong range attack and high health. The best tactic is to attack them at a distance or from the side, to give yourself time to move away from the attack. Try to avoid long corridor unless they have corner you can duck down. Warden ------ Without a doubt, these are the strongest monsters youll face in the game. Made of solid metal, be thankful there are only four of them. While they act like an Ogre, in the sense that they can side attack and charge at you, they are far, far stronger and harder to kill. As you might imagine, electric attacks work best, and getting them in the same attack pattern as the Ogre works well. Just take you time and be careful. Wyvern ------ Whilst similar to the Crowern in many respects, these creatures are tougher and have a stronger ranged lightning attack. But you can deal with them in much the same way, as long as you stay out of being in front of them. +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | Items | +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Weapons -

Start a new game and select the option to create your own characters. With only a single character created, enter the name Toorum and then press Enter. If you did it correctly, youll hear a chime and the intro will start as normal, but youll find yourself paying a Toorum by himself! Toorum has an interesting selection of Skills and a trait that only he can possess that allows him to move at twice the speed. Will this be enough to let you play through to the end? With all the items, and enemies, as they are in normal mode, its up to you to see if you can get Toorum out alive... +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | End - LG08 | +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Copyright --------- This Guide and all it's content are copyrighted by me.
