Catacombs

Catacombs

The Catacombs was an area designed in a Shilla contest in the spring and summer of 2005, by Alphablast. It was to replace an old area in Shilla(pre-reset) that was deemed out of context with the storyline. Once you have trained here for a relatively long amount of time, surviving in the Baleful Swamp becomes possible.

The Catacombs require an Intelligence of 918, 1,020, or 1,122 depending on your race to enter. The quickest way to the Catacombs is via the Cemetery/Crypt teleport location go east once, south to a crossroads, then east again to the entrance. The Catacombs doesn't have any associated teleport locations, unfortunately.

Training

There are 3 levels of difficulty, the 1st level having the Animated Corpse and Daemon, 2nd level having the Ancient Sorcerer and Ancient Mage, and the 3rd level has the Necromancer, Carnage, and Phanganon.

Drops

The Daemon drops Fresh Flesh, the Ancient Mage drops Ancient Spirit Herb, and the Phanganon drops the Groping Carnage Ring.

The Fresh Flesh is used in the final Fetch Quest, for Bruno in the Dark Forest.

The 3rd Level and Alignment Changing

On the 3rd level is one of the ways that a character can change their alignment. Below you will find the steps to accomplish this task.

  1. Locate each of the 4 statues, which are shown on the map. When you free the area of the creature, either by killing it or running away, the statue text will show. Now you rotate the shrines so it points towards the center of the level. i.e. North statue facing south, South statue facing north, East statue facing west, and West statue facing east.
  2. Once the the statues are rotated to the center you can go the center, run away from or kill that creature, which makes a portal appear. The portal will take you to either one of the 4 elemental alignment shrines, Limbo or the location of Salena in the Great Plains.
  3. If you don't get the desired location you have to work your way down through the all the levels of the Catacombs and reenter the center location. Thankfully having to realign the statues isn't necessary.
