Quests & Strategies
The Shadow Ring
The Shadow Ring is an object that makes the Shadows visible to you when you wear it. Such an object would give you the opportunity to fight them, instead of being their easy prey.
- The Abandoned Forge
- The Fireforge, once the largest dwarven forge in the Middle Mountains is the only place where the Shadow Rings were made. The Oracle explained that this is the only place where such a ring can be found. To reach it, you have crossed the Burning Plains of Uram Gor and defeated its demons.
- The Barbarians
- At the foot of the volcano is a village of a tribe of the Western Barbarians, who are on friendly terms with the Clans. They have blocked he path to the mountaintop and guard their village like a fortress. You should join forces with them, not only will you have their reinforcements, but also free access to the mountain.
- The Fireforge
- The forge is in the crater of the volcano above you and the dwarven town is occupied by beasts. But with the help of Vlad's barbarians you shoul be able to take the town.
- The camp has two gates, at the east and the west, where attacks from the two beast camps strike. Protect one gate with the units you received, the other with the Shaikan, or split the groups. Gather resources - an additional stone field is just north of the eastern gate - and build up the camp and army. When you have some 40 units leave 25 (plus some extra towers) at the east and take the Shaikan and the remaining dozen units west and then north. Take possession of the silver and expand your base and the army at the eastern gate while your small army takes out the camp in the northwest. Return to your camp and join forces with the defenders there to launch an assault on the eastern camp.
- Look for the key
- Vlad reports that the dwarven town, where the access to the forge lies, is closed and he has only one part of a three-part key. The other parts are in possession of the commanders of the two beast camps.
- Let Vlad open the gate
- You have captured the two missing parts of the gatekey and Vlad, who has the third part, is waiting in anticipation at the gate to the dwarven town. He won't give you his part, but he's certain to open the gate - to pillage the town - when you give him your parts.
- Into the old town
- The old dwarven town is besieged by a pack of beasts that drove Vlad's barbarians to the foot of the volcano. In the fight, the gate key was destroyed and the parts are in possession of Vlad and the two beast commanders.
- Volcano Forge
- The ghost of the dwarven blacksmith has ordered you to find his Volcano Hammer which is not only needed to complete the forging of the fourth Shadow Ring, but also to open the gate to the forge.
- Essence of Heat
- The forge is extinguished. the blacksmith wants you to cast the spells that will rekindle it, but you need a powerfull source of heat for it.
- The Yellow Fire
- Three pipelines supply elemental fire, their flames have to burn with a yellow color to forge the ring. Three leavers adjust their heat and color; when pulled, a lever will increase the heat of its flame, but decrease that of the other two.
- The last ring
- The time has come to forge the last Shadow Ring, use the materials you gathered and the Truthsight scroll at the Fireforge to forge this last ring. Not only will the Shadow Ring give you the means to see the shadows, the completion of their last task will also set the spirit of the dwarven blacksmiths free. The iron and moonsilver can be found in the storeroom, the catalyst on one of the elementals and the scroll somewhere in town.
The Black Mirror
The Black Mirror, a dark stone that fell on the world centuries ago binds and controls the fate of the Shadows, from it they derive their power. Sorvina inherited it from Nazshar and with it she controls the Shadows, but they will refuse to serve her if the mirror is returned to them. Sorvina hid the mirrior in a place that was made inaccessible to the Shadows by the god Hirin; the crater that was formed by the meteorite that contained the Black Mirror.
