What does this information mean?

This zone is a reverse of the original Nektropos Castle, with all new encounters, designed for a full group of level 70 characters. You enter through the crypt in Nektulos Forest at (-1657, 123, -2069) and exit through the front door.

Generally mobs in the zone do not respawn with 3 exceptions: Hall roaming vortexes (4 total in zone) and 2 crumbling walls in the ramp / outside area. The last exception to this is in the Library. The books will spawn at a rate of 1 per 8-10 seconds in the room. They are all 68-72^^. So dont stay in there longer than needed or they will add up.

Go through secret doors to get up to level 3 from the basement. You will come up into the bookshelf in the captain's room. Go to the room to the right (Caretaker room) and inspect the fireplace for a key. After you loot the key 3 embers will spawn along with the Coaltergeist.

While you are here be sure to pick up My True Beloved. You will find scattered pages throughout the zone to complete the tome.

Make your way to Melanie Everling's room. Before proceeding, complete the mini quest Cleaning Melanie's Room.

Now go upstairs (Nektopos level 3) and make your way over to the other side and down into Sheila's room. Kill everything in the various rooms, but what you really need to do is to get to Diedre's room where you can get into the main level of the castle (lvl 1). Once you are there clear all mobs on your way to the main courtyard - once you kill the 3 spawns in courtyard about 6 named will pop (all 70^).

Hail Rikantus Everling for your reward - Beyond the Rune, as well as a bit of lore. If you haven't done the quest A Portrait of Destiny Rikantus will also reward you with The Idol of Everling.

After completing this instance, Antiquitor Kantus Mor'Tael in Maj'Dul may wish to speak with you! (You must have The Idol of Everling in you inventory before Mor'Tael will tell you anything of interest.) - Also, Rikantus in Antonica may also have a few lines to say.


Bug! The following in-game bug has been reported to SOE:
