Somewhere deep within this enormous expanse of catacombs lie the remains of the 24th heir to the throne of San d'Oria: Ranperre, the Dragon King. It is said that the king--who was a dragonslayer--had entrusted the protection of the tomb to a black dragon that had been spared in exchange for its services.

Does anyone now how you get past the "Heavy Door" that "won't budge"? Theres a tombstone behind it, I saw it through the wall. I tried trading a key to it but nothing.. So if anyone knows how you get past that door, it'd be great to know, thanks.

they dont spawn unless u have the mission i have clicked on it and nothing hapens.... although i saw a high lv pld w/ af go in there alone tried to follow but door h\shut befor i could get in i didnt know that there were ghouls in there
RE: Door
# Feb 09 2005 at 4:59 PM Rating: Decent
If you mean the "Heavy Stone Door", then you're looking at the spawn point for three lvl 63ish skeletons for San d'orian mission 6-2. When someone with the quest activated clicks on the door, it will spawn them, so don't worry about clicking on it and spawning them. ^^;

Anyone know how i can get to vrtra? I wanna go see him. And then die horribly. But it'd be worth it to see one of, if not the, strongest nms in the game. Please help me out.

We partied there yesterday (see post below), and at one point I got curious and asked the RNG if Vrtra was on wide scan. She said it was, and was in the open area at (K-8). When the party finally came to an end, most of us were too tired (or didn't have a buffer), and so didn't mosey over to check.

When you go through the ???, take the first left, and then the first right, and camp at the foot of those stairs. We didn't fight scorpions, mostly Armet Beetles, and Dire Bats when the beetle supply ran low. Easiest 30k experience I've ever made.

There is also a spot on the ground that is ???. If u dare click on that it will take you underground where u might even have to tele out of cuz stuff is very hard down there. Hope this helps.

This is about a L55 exp area. But if you happen down there just turn around and go back toward the stairs behind you.

Head for the long (north to south) rectangular area at K-5 / K-6. There are Leecher / Gambler / Muggers here.

The long rectangular (east to west) area at
G-10 / H-10 / I-10 has 2 "tombs" in it. The one on the eastern end of the rectangle is where the spook spawns. This has the tombstone for Sandy mission 1-1 and the "Waterskin Quest". If you want to die....go to the west end.

Theres a large raised stone "platform" in this area. There's a "???" in the middle of this platform you can target. Clicking on it teleports you underground. Dire Bats (lvl 65ish) will probably be what kills you, if the worms don't. Make it past both of them, and there's a ~lvl 70 scorpion. I don't know what's past that....my sneak started to wear off and I hauled *** back. If you need to exit, just turn 180 degrees from where you teleported in, and you'll see a staircase. Run up it. Before u hit the stairs, though, you'll be teleported back topside.

Hope this answers your question!

No, Vrtra can't come out but I'm sure other monsters can like when the sea horror floats through walls and aggros people inside the boat.

That's an awesome lie considering the high level stuff cannot go up to the ground where Spook is.

# Nov 22 2004 at 1:46 AM Rating: Decent
No, they can't. If you try to leave Vrtra's room, you'll be drawn in. There's no way to get him out of his spawn room.

If you are talking about mobs going above ground from the ??? they used to be able to but about 2 months ago or so it was changed.

2nd entrance
# Aug 06 2004 at 7:22 PM Rating: Decent
Anyone know how to get to the other entrance specified on the map? I know how to get to the one, but the one close to the Jugner Forest exit is hidden to me.

Anyone know where it is? Is there a trigger I have to hit somewhere? And does it have anything to do with that suspiscious looking tree that is in the middle of the ruins in East Ronfaure?
RE: 2nd entrance
# Aug 29 2004 at 5:31 PM Rating: Decent
Well, to get to the Jugner Forest exit isn't all that difficult to explain. After heading down into the caves near the entrance from East Ronfaure, follow them until you get to an opening (the area where King Ranperre's Tomb is actually located- will be at the NW corner of the bottom box on map). Take a sharp left, then another left at the end of the box area, to head back north again (and through some more caves). If the goblins near the entrance of these caves aren't too hard for you, you shouldn't have a problem for the rest of this area, as long as you don't stick your head above ground again) Follow this cave around, and keep heading north and east. If you see an area that goes back above ground, you need to head back a little west, then head north again at the next possible intersection and head east. The East Ronfaure exit takes you out on a mountain in East Ronfaure, that you can drop down from, and the Jugner exit takes you to a segmented off part where there is a ??? (don't touch it if you've done the quest related to it! unless you want to, darn Death Knight kicked my butt), and some crabs. Have fun!

I am well aware of the dangers that lay buried in this dungeon; however, I am from Bastok and am not familiar with the area. I was wondering if someone could give me a coordinate of the ??? warp/drop zone to the higher lvl area. Thank you and I hope someone reads this sometime soon. ^^

The map is Quested. You talk to the 2 Guys just outside the Carpenter's Guild one of them will ask you something about Varchit(?) the gambler by the fountain in South Sandy on the way to the Residential area. You have to go gamble with him and win once then return to the guy you talked to by the Carpenter's guild in N. Sandy and bingo! you get the map. Real easy takes 5 minutes.

If you go into the ??? tomb u will encounter lvl 50+ monsters. If you go further in u will encounter 60-70 monsters. And even further is a skeleton mob called the Spartoi Sorceror that is lvl 80-82!!! So be careful,if you ever see one of these...RUN LIKE HELL!

Just a heads up if you are heading dEeP in to this dungeon, there are level 75+ mobs in there if you go just the exact WRONG way :DDD

My friend examined a certain spot inside the cave, and fell through the floor only to be killed by bats that aggro'd and did 900+ damage to him..
chest location
# Jun 20 2004 at 4:19 PM Rating: Decent
anyone here know where the chest is?
RE: chest location
# Jul 31 2004 at 1:42 PM Rating: Decent
There are around 10-15 point where the chest spawns at. I found a map once of where these points were but now I can't remember. Just run around in the deeper areas (no the high lvl area) till you find it. I'
ll try and find the map again and post it's location.
