Firescape

This page is a work in progress.

Located in the same area as the Firescape Newbie Tower, Firescape is home to the Cult of Signevda, deep in the bowls of Sosel. The area itself is coded by Thor, and is said to have a minlock of 45. The nearby newbie tower has a maxlock of 18.

Getting to Firescape

NOTE - Be afraid of nonstandard exits. This area loves things like 'upsoutheast' as directions.

You can access the tower proper through a cave in Sosel's black lake. A map of the cave system and tower itself is handily available on this page.

To get to Firescape proper, you need a Bone Key which is in the room of the boss of the Firescape Newbie tower. The Newbie Tower itself is very close to the entrance of Firescape.

Directions to the Newbie tower -
down;downsoutheast;down;east;upnortheast;upnortheast;up;east;upnortheast;open door
wait for the door to open (A loud creaking echos throughout the cavern as the door creeps open.)
entrance;east;north;upnortheast;north;northwest
The newbie tower starts to your upnortheast.

The Newbie Tower itself is fairly easy and self-explanatory. All you really need is a tank who's at-level to manage it, but a dpr or healer helps. It's a fun little area, so explore and look around! Beware poison, though, some of the mobs are Vipyr and will readily use ybite.

In this room (outlined in red on the provided map) there are 150 torches that you need to 'pull' and insert the Bone Key into. Many things can happen when you insert the key, between summoning a powerful mob, damaging you, inflicting you with a random disease of a random type, destroying the Bone Key used without opening the way forward, and opening the way forward to the caverns (destroying the used key in the process).


Firescape camp

The top Signevda seal holder is Stemuls
The middle is Potachi
The bottom is Gralthe


When casing, Temuls had the bottom left piece of the seal and Galthe had the bottom right, I believe. I'm not sure what Potachi holds, or if it's random.

Top left shop has weapons
Top right shop has armor
Bottom left shop has general goods
Bottom right shop has food


Most of the mobs in the camp aren't generally aggro, though there are a few exceptions. The demons and some of the other mobs can chase, but don't always. The bosses don't wander.
The shops are always safe rooms, unless you aggro the shopkeepers.

One of the rooms in Firescape leads to a camp, where you need to get the second pieces of the boss seals.
