Dwarven Stronghold

The Dwarven Stronghold is the home of the Dwarves of Shilla. From the Mountain Entrance teleport defeat the Park Ranger, go East twice, up one and the entrance is to the east. They are a greedy bunch, and they hate magicians. So to make that sentence more understandable, and for you to enter and not get attacked:

  1. Have the least amount of spell levels possible and/or
  2. Have as much gold as possible, it can be in the bank

The amount of gold needed to successfully enter the Stronghold is a base amount of 1.5m gold +1,000 x your spell levels found in the Score menu. Even if you drop below this amount of gold the Dwarves will just ignore you until you try and reenter.

NOTE Invisibility
Character based Invisibility does not hide you from the Guards.
Equipment based Invisibility has not been fully tested yet.

What you'll find in here is generally the same as most other villages. Bank, Weapon Shop, Armor Shop, and a Food Shop.

The Cannon Shop is located in the Weapon Shop.

You can activate the Bored Guard quest here as well.

There is a mining field east of the Stronghold, which is where you'll be using the Mining skill. You can mine for a variety sizes in pearls and gold nugget, as well as Stone and Iron. The locations for largest Gold Nuggets and Black or White Pearls can be found on the map. Mining an assortment of these is part of the Fighter's Guild quests. Going Up from either of the main level mining location leads to a dead end two levels up. The old entrances to the Mountain top and Ogre Caves no longer exist.

The Gem Shop buys whatever gems you find there, like the one in Shillatown.

The Tavern has Dwarf Patrons vs Dwarven Guards, but you can no longer get into bar fights.

Finally, there are spots south and west of the Armor Shop that you can sell and customize spare Mythril pieces, but they are devoid of everything but a line of text indicating their prior usefulness.
