+________________________________________________________+ Gate 4(-PFH-)"The Obsidian Tunnels of the Labyrinth" #-------% Navigating the Maze %-------# South of your position starts this gate and throws you into a 3 !exit area with a Dragon pertaining to its room type. Sapphire(Frost) Heals, Silence Ivory(Earth) Heals, Silence Topaz(Flame) Heals (NO FS) Emerald(Earth) Heals, Silence Amythest(Storm) Heals, Silence Pearl(Storm) Heals, Silence Ruby(Flame) Heals (NO FS) Diamond(Frost) Heals Jade(Frost) Heals ****edit 08/2020 ALL dragons seem to silence on entering after you flee (%?) ****Each dragon essentially traps you in their "Lairs" and must be killed to escape. Doing so opens up the maze more and more each time a different dragon is killed. When all 9 dragons are killed a door will unlock in the Empty Black Cavern room in the middle of the maze, leading downwards. #-------% Getting across the Fiery Lake %-------# Descending into the shore of a fiery lake you can see a massive black wall of obsidian and a peninsula in the distance. Your next move should be to examine the room descriptions along the lake for a "wall of black stone is broken by a small niche" and enter it. Inside of this place is the Watcher. ****He is stationary but has two alternate methods of attack. Vengeance Shroud - activates for a few tics before resetting and Desecrate - usually will follow up with this attack on failed flees, but rarely on room entry. Enter the crack that forms in the room from his death. Then get a sprig from a tree (type get sprig all). head back outside to the peninsula and put the sprig in the altar. #-------% The Four Sartans %-------# Among the corridors of this area are the Sartans who power the seal on the door to the south. Killing will remove it and allow access to the end of the gate. ****Each Sartan is equipped with a rotating aura listed below: Blue Aura ------Half Sanctuary Purple Aura --- Increased Damage Green Aura----Absorption Red Aura ------ Fire Shield Black Aura----- Vengeance Shroud Aura's will rotate randomly at any interval, but sometimes also on tics. You can engage each Sartan at your leisure as they are sentinel. Once the last one falls, the door south will be open. Enter the gate here to complete this gate.
