|This is a 18th anniversary shared task given by Sionachie Heartsinger in Plane of Knowledge at -335, -249, -156 near the FV port stone.
You say, 'Hail, Sionachie Heartsinger'
Sionachie Heartsinger says, 'Hello, _______. Do you have a moment to entertain a [request:What request?] from Firiona Vie?'
You say, 'What request?'
Sionachie Heartsinger says, 'Our sources indicate that Lanys T`Vyl's lieutenants are moving to infiltrate the Shade King's throne while the Wraithguard are distracted by the winter feasts in Valdeholm. It is of the utmost importance that we [stop:How do we stop them?] them.'
You say, 'How do we stop them?'
Sionachie Heartsinger says, 'We believe they are going after the Crown of the Shade King himself, as Lanys has expressed a desire to [acquire:Perhaps we should acquire it first.] it. It could be used to raise a terrible army, and must not be allowed to fall into her hands!'
You say, 'Perhaps we should acquire it first.'
Sionachie Heartsinger says, 'Your help is much appreciated, _________. We knew you were the right Gnome for the job. Now you must delve deep into Frostcrypt and do battle with the Shade King in his frozen throne. Bring the Crown to us for safe keeping so that such terrible power may never fall into the wrong hands. I will arrange transportation when you're [ready:I am ready to travel to Frostcrypt.].'
You have been assigned the task 'Delving into Frostcrypt'.
You have entered Frostcrypt, Throne of the Shade King.
To get to Beltron the Shade King, you will need to go through the maze. In order to do this you will need a Shattering Sunderer which drops reportedly off Frostbite. Then use this clicky item in the room with the torches and the center area opens to let you past.
King will be in the center maze room, he will warp to a random corner 4 times before you can actually kill him.
Each time Beltron goes non-agro and warps away, he causes a number of roamer a shade of zek to spawn in the maze:
Beltron, the Shade King shouts, 'Guards! Come deal with these pests!'
These new spawns are not auto-agro, they just make traversing the maze more and more treacherous as they accumulate every time Beltron warps to a new location. Its very easy to get overrun by mobs in the maze (many see through IVU). Ended up fighting more than a few mobs simultaneously, more than a few times. Easymode solution to this is simply to not pursue Beltron through the maze; don't track him down and don't fight him at his new location. Instead, simply remain in the center room where you first encountered him. Once he regens back to 100% he will path back to his spawn point. You can beat him down 4x right on his spawn point. No need to trek the maze over and over and kill piles of extra mobs.
To get the bonus item, simply kill all three named mobs before you engage Beltron:
Frostbite (spectre) drops Shattering Sunderer needed to unlock the maze, so that mob is a required kill.
Spite-clad Poltergeist (sentient armor) drops Agonizing War Helm, which has a right-click effect of some sort of damage shield (I didn't utilize it).
Morlon the Tainted (vampire) drops Necronominon, which has a right-click effect of summoning some sort of aides in battle (I didn't utilize it).
The Darkened Corrupted Orbs of Living Ice appear on Beltron's corpse (one per player) along with the Crown to update the task.
