Long ago, Khati Sha was a famed Vah Shir who enjoyed exploring. This love of exploration, however, was his downfall, as he was captured by the Shissar on one of his trips. Under the orders of Emperor Ssraeshza, he was brought in to the Shissar's temple to be interrogated, tortured, and experimented upon. One of these experiments went very wrong, and in the accident both Khati Sha and his tormentors perished.

All surviving records of the incident were sealed by Imperial order, and it is written that any further investigation into the incident would be considered treasonous.

The spirit of Khati Sha now resides in the Acrylia Caverns, located on the edge of the Grimling Forest just south of the Tenebrous Mountains. The Grimlings which control the area fear the retribution that would be unleashed if Khati Sha were to be made aware of the horrors committed upon him in the Shissars' temple. Therefore, much of Grimling legend consists of untruths -- lies to cover up a treacherous history of a once-great, famed Vah Shir.

2016 Guide for levelling in Acrylia Caverns

This is a quick guide to help anyone returning to EQ level from 45 to 60 or so. For the longest time, this was a great secret with a nice XP bonus, but there are reports that the xp was nerfed recently. I have not checked it out myself, but it would not surprise me. I posted a guide for Jaggedpine and mentioned that there is "Crazy good xp in Acrylia Caverns that can take you to 60" and several days later the xp was reported as nerfed...

Either way, it is still a fun zone once you get to know it with really good loot. You want to Invis through the caves in Grimling Forest and zone into AC. Stay up front at first and pull to the zoneline. There is a big room to the left with single pulls and caves to the right with multiples. Your merc can tank a couple of these at a time as long as you do not draw agro.

Around 48-49 I like to move through the gate in the caves that leads to the castle area. This part of the zone is nothing like some of the older posts in this thread, and the rules have changed a lot since the release of Luclin. Go through the gate and hug the left wall. You will come to a corner where you can see 6 undead Vah Shir atop some steps. There is one grimling roamer as well. Clear these guys, go up the stairs and to the left into a room with 4 grimlings. After clearing these guys there is a large room with a lava pit. The mob front and center is a ph/named and drops good loot. This area will take you to 50+.

Around 51-52 move through the door on the right, up the steps into a little room and after clearing it you can click on the stanchion that will take you to the other half of the castle. This area is awesome. There are 5 named down here and once you start moving around and get to know it, it is a lot of fun. The only mob I stay away from is the High Priest. He is a roamer in the main level big room and he will complete heal over and over. As you near 60 he will be much easier to kill. I clear upstairs, downstairs in the jails, the back room with the pit with a Vah Shir in it and the levels come fast.

One really cool thing about this zone is the "get out of jail free cards" they give you. There are several items in this deep dungeon area that you can click on and zone out to the zoneline in grimling forest at a safe spot. Then zone back in, invis up and head back down there. One is in the upstairs area and it is a tapestry on the wall. Another is what looks like a little seat with spikes sticking up out of it located in the back room with the Vah Shir down in the pit and the 2 guards standing over him. I think there is one back in the big lava room area next to the stanchion you click. There may be more, but those are the ones I used when in trouble. You can click on the items from across the room and if you get a message that you are not close enough to reach it then you know its a clickie zone out.

The 2 Vah Shir in the jail cells are part of a raid event or something... not sure, never messed with those guys and they do not agro. They will talk if you hail them.

It slows down at 58, but not so bad that you cant just stay there. I took the rogue to 62 here and collected 500 AA in the meantime. More recent characters of mine typically leave here at 60 and head to Plane of Fire. I will post a guide to how I work through PoF as well under the zone thread.

Hope this helps... its a dungeon crawl... but its solo with a merc (molo)... and rarely populated so you get the place to yourself. Enjoy!

I am proud to say that the Summoner's Ring on Al'Kabor (Mac server) was defeated for the very first time on Sunday, August 28th (we have the original pre-revamp AC). Lots was learned about that ring event and the boss that spawns from it (there may be more than one boss, but yet to find out if there is a rare pop).

I need a placeholder quest made on the quests page for "Summoner's Ring", then mark it removed.

I also need a placeholder/page made up for "Witchdoctor Gnorgtarg". Please, name it acryliacaverns 1.0 - Witchdoctor Gnorgtarg then move that mob to the mob graveyard. Also, please add that mob to the Summoner's Ring and I'll add a bunch of information about drops, AoE, the encounter and so on within the next few days. Sadly or gladly however you wish to look at it, we found another drop that wasn't on Lucy.

Okay, so a some of you probably noticed that I am posting a lot of these PL spots, but that is mainly because I like sharing my knowledge of old school eq content lol. Anyhoo, if you have a character that is 35+ and a high end druid, ranger, or cleric that you can use to PL yourself with a dmg shield, this is the spot to do it. I started PLing in this place today, and in two pulls I went from 38-44 on the lower level mobs (when you first zone in). The whole process of getting those 6 levels took a matter of ten minutes and like three heals the entire time, other than healing the char I was PLing to establish a firm agro on the train. When the character reaches about 50 or 51, you can move to the higher level mobs and do train pulls there. It might be a bit bigger of a pain because there is higher healers down there, but it is well worth it. You can get a crapload of aas and what not on the higher mobs, starting at 51, then go to 55 and aa more, then move to 60. You can go from 35-55 with max aas in a single day, or even in a few hours if you are doing train pulls and follow this process.

fast exit from bloodpriest room

I was exploring this zone with a trio of 57-58s; I'd never hunted much beyond the first few rooms before. We made our way to the bloodpriest's room and cleared it (no named up). Then we got to wondering how one is supposed to get out of the blood pool if you fall in. (Maybe you used to be able to jump out at the edges, but that's gotten a lot harder since swimming was changed a couple months ago, so we weren't sure it would work.) We sent in an Eye of Zomm to look around and saw a big red gem floating in the middle of the pool. So I invised, dove in (discovering that the blood is boiling, doing modest fire damage), and clicked on it. Turns out it's an instant exit to Grimling Forest at the AC zone line.

Are there other such portals in other parts of AC?

In the upper level room with the cauldron, there's a draping/curtain on the north wall in a little cubby. Click that.

I hope you're not still stuck there. Better late than never, right?

not having an active map try following my directions. Zone in take first right kill some grimlings, take second left and follow corridor killing more grimling open gate go down stairs, kill grimlings, skeletons and bugs. Keep left and go up the 3-way stair case into the area that looks like a PvP arena(wierd stones made into a pattern) ahead is a large room and grimlings drooling into a pool of blood. First time there so being Rogue blooded I investigate(Ok I'm a mage so I nuke first and check things out later). Grimlings dead spawn rate is a about 10 to 15 minutes, yet standing by the pool up spawns grimlings(are they swimming in blood? what is in Blood? Not having levitation or Call of the Hero makes exploring hard) So was wondering if some evac capable group has ever checked out the Blood Pool if so what are the results? Evac works but CoH doesn't(well not anymore at least). Cool zone, good loot, nice Exp even at 65 if you go inner area. Enchanters will be in heaven given all the pages that drop.

Oh as for getting into the Inner Zone go into the mentioned above room head right go to door(2 grimling guards) open door(looks like a gem)up stairs 3 or 4 grimlings inside kill these and med if not at full mana and hit points. Then as a group each person click on the Statue(pray that you never have to face this statue it looks nasty) you appear in a room(2 ways) ahead without stair wanders 2 grimlings that wander thru zone in area the corridor goes 3 ways right a door and a grimling, left a corridor and straight looks like stairs. Behind me in zone in is stairs BEWARE up stairs and into room 2 gaurds DB at 65 are posted and hidden from casual view. Small aggro radius at 65 when I walked into room and saw them and backpedddled REALLY fast. Non-targetable for a solo mage(no LOS)sure Scars of Sigil will go thru walls but you still get 2 pulls.(word of advice have 2 pet Heals loaded if soloing & Calliav might be nice too as well as gate). If you have Mastered AoE Maelstrom of Thunder is great(Evoc Specialist with Fabled Robes and Fury)3 chances to crit with a 900 base for cheap getting 2 targets. AoE, DoT Each(retarget pet on each before DoTing) and AoE again dead. Oh yeah and those 2 pet heals Planar and the 60th one(64th, 60th, 64th) no pet aug yet. Hope this helps.

update for shards
# Aug 28 2004 at 8:32 PM Rating: Good
Three of us went into Inner Acrylia last night (all 65 shaman, warrior, and druid). We got immediate aggro from the wanderers but had no real problems.

We were able to either single pull or root split the pulled mobs from the big room which is down the hall and to the left as you pop in. We camped right where you pop in after clicking on the statue.

Only got one big pull from the room when wanderers spawned at same time. The mobs appear to be on 15 minute timers. There is a named in the room that we left alone.

It took about 2 and a half hours for all of us to get our VT shards from drops off the sanctum guards.

Can someone tell me exactly what to do to get into the inner part of the zone? Go into as much detail as possible if you can because after repeated searching through this site I can't find ANY detailed information at all, just things like "this is one of 4 or 5 quests for the key to the inner part of Acrylia Caverns" Of course that quest is supposedly not active anymore or something, and there is no key listed as a result of the quest..

I have no clue what to do at this point and as I get higher in level (should make 60 tonight) I want to start going in deeper to be able to hit dark blues instead of the light blues I am expecting the front area mobs will turn into. Any help is appreciated!

Fuond AC a great place for Acrylia ore, easily soloble by 58 pally on first few rooms as the mobs can still be pacified, if buffed with virtue and kei/voq the ritualist and primalist are not too hard and the drops are the best by far I soloed at my level, got both the acrylia Chestplate and Grimling skin mask from the pimalist.
The ore dropped from everything and a wise idea even as pally to bring a few weight reduction bags with you.

Have yet to figure out how to open the door.

The 2 jail cells below and the cauldron up above are all part a mob event. Takes groups in both area's to complete it. Only it attempted it once and it was a disaster hehe.

As far as getting out of inner acrylia if you go forward from the zone in point down the stairs to the very last room gate on your left and drop down the pit. Numerous mobs along the way.

I dont know about "Dropping down". I did however go here and get my VT key shard last week. Once in Inner AC if ya go straight down hall ya zoned in at, it will go down a short hill and ya come to a dead end room. If ya look to your left you will see a Jail cell. if ya go in that cell on the right hand side, there is a Pin Cushion looking thing. Click it and youll exit back to GF right at AC zone in. Hope that helps, no need to jump in any holes :P

The 2 vah shir in cages are for the Life/Death Warder event in Inner AC,
once event is started you need to kill Spell Jammers to allow the vah shir to complete a chant/spell and get the Life Death wards to spawn,Life ward spawns here, Death Ward spawns bu the Sacrificial Cauldron, sacrifices head towards the cauldron once he pops, each one that makes it to cauldron heals the warders,
the life death wards must be killed to gain acess through floor as i understand it.
Floor is for access to Khati Sha the Twisted (final mob in Legend of Lies/fused mneumonic of Khati Sha quest)

i am a 63 beastlord and have been hunting here since about 59...solo... the acrylia drops are frequent, the runes flow like wine and sell well.. and the crude filth covered weapons that drop sell for 142pp a piece, not bad for vendor fodder... most of the mobs in the front became light blue when i hit 62, and all are light blue at 63, but they are easily killed, so xp isnt bad, even at my lvl... as far as named mobs go.. there are several, and they all drop good stuff..

after zone in, hang a right, then in the first room on left, in the far left corner(to the right of the wooden cage lookin thing) a "grimling ritualist" will sometimes spawn.. he drops acrylic chainmail, and metallic grimling bones.. the bones blow, but the chainmail is nice..

if you go to the first room on the right the named mob is the grimling primalist, he spawns near the center of the room just to the right of the fire on a rock.. drops a bomb mask "grimling skin mask" and a decent acrylic brestplate...

the "blood room" which is further in, past the town, has a named mob "grimling bloodpriest" who will spawn in the center of all them(they are lined up along the edge of the pit) he dropped the blackened acrylia blade for me, though he also drops the greatsword im told...

very deep in(you have to click a statue in the room to he right of the blood room to get there) there are some named as well.. ive not spent much time in that area(its a lil iffy to solo, the mobs are 2x as tough as the ones you normally fight and their aggro is horrendous) i believe the named are the grimling arch mage, and a grimling arcanist.. not sure on their drops, but i think the grimling earbone drops off of one of them...

all in all this zone is great.. i could get better xp elsewhere at my lvl.. but considering i can make about 2k in a couple hours, and possibly get soem of the very nice loot there, i keep coming back to ac.. (not to mention the acrylia i need for my tailoring) if you are almost 60 or above, this zone is a must see...

P.S. for pulling i always start in the hall to the left of zone in, no roamers in it.. once youve cleared the area and started into one of the rooms, you can move camp to there.. just keep up on the spawns or they'll overrun you(quick spawn times :)

I've been hearing things about a great place to hunt for good drops in here. This is what I've heard so far:

Some ring that triggers multiple series mobs "gauntlet style" (meaning each series of mobs is more numerous and possibly higher level). Each time you wipe out a series you can get 1 piece of good loot (don't know if person meant definite or just a chance). You do have time in between to heal/med/loot/etc, but if you stay you WILL eventually trigger the next series automatically.

Is this the Ring of Fire? If so, is my info correct? If you have been there and done this, please toss me either a quick lowdown or tell tell where to read the info online. One of the previous posts mentioned the Ring of Fire was only worthwhile place to hunt in zone for good loot/kill ratio, but I can't find specific info.

I play on a PvP server, and as all you others that also do so already know, crowding isn't an issue except for whatever zones are the newest to come out. A Luclin-era zone like this one is hardly ever camped in great numbers for exp, or even loot. I'm just curious for future guild functions, and some variety in my hunting. Thanks in advance.

The Ring of Fire no longer works, as part of the revamp that included no longer needing a key to enter the zone. Haven't been there yet, so atm I can offer no more info.

we are a group that works very well together.
We are all in the 40's, we have an enc, ranger, pally, wizzy with a possible druid, necro highest lvl is 48 lowest atm is 43. could this group do the zoneline here. alternate group is a cleric instead of the enc but that dosent seem to be a good trade.
Please let me know.

Don't go there in your 40's cause it will get real ugly real fast. Best to wait until you're all low 50's. At least that way you'll have a fighting chance.

Good Luck,

I would say probably not... at that level, the mob at the zone in would end up eating you for lunch... One of the recent changes put a high level IA mob at the zone in on a 26 minute timer. it's only a single mob, but he hits in the 150 range and has an @$$load of HP's. Takes me ( 56 BL ) and my girlfriend ( 57 Druid ) a fair amount of effort to bring it down.... especially since there is a roamer that paths right next to it and 2 spawns that will pop as soon as the ZI mob starts to run ( **** you Murphy, and your stupid law too ) Your Ench may have trouble mezzing here, as the mobs are fairly high level ( I still get a lot of resist messages ) and it is not possible to single pull here till 57.

Honestly, you'd be better off killing in the Taskmaster room in Echo Caverns till around 50, at that point, with the full group you described, it would probably give a good challenge with a MUCH lower chance for a wipe.

Legends and Lies goes to agent Tiesh. he spawns in the north camp in grimling forest by the TM zone line when all the camp quests have been done and the vah shir take over that camp. if you give him the L&L book he talks about the hero of the vah shir people being lost (vhalek shah - he's in the pit/prison in inner acrylia - KOS to my druid even with good vah shir faction). He mentions how there must be more to the secrets and maybe the SSra know more. I think there's some documents you have to collect from the SSra library area (I think he said there were 3 or 4) and he gives you a container that is suppose to translate them. haven't gone to ssra to find out where it goes from there....

We went here the other night. Killed a few mobs in the Blood Room, as we like to call it. A mob called "grimling bloodpriest" spawned after about 2 hours of working room. Killed it fairly easily. Dropped a blackened acrylia greatsword, some acrylia, and a no drop item called "legend of lies". Anybody got any idea as to what this is for? Is it part of a quest involving Acrylia Caverns?

I picked up the "legend of lies" the other day. I knew I had talked to an NPC that asked for it, but I couldn't remember which one. Took my rogue, which has the item, and tried to find it in grimling forest with no luck. Took my shammy, which is a bit higher in lvl than my rogue, and did the same. Found that Agent Tiesh is the one asking for the drop. Seeing as my rogue cannot get the NPC to respond to him properly I will wait till he gets another lvl or two before I try it again.

Nice little bit of game lore though. Interesting to see that there might be some relation between the grimlings and the vah shir (unless I misread the legend of lies)

Hope that helps ya out a little bit

Any advice on what to do nowadays to get into inner Acrylia? I'd like to go.

I am a level 56 druid and my friend is a 65 druid. He can solo here easily (of course). While we was duoing here, he had to leave for a few min, so I decided to try solo one. This one had wandered all the way up next to the zone line, so I thought what the heck. I was able to successfully solo it by root/rotting. However, if I had got an add, I would of had to zone.

I did it by casting root and adding on my dots until the root broke. Then I would have to root it while it was beating on me. I then had to back up and put the remainder of my 4 dots on it and heal myself. By that time root would break again and I'd have to re-root while it was beating on me.

As you can tell, it was tedious and overly risky but was able to be done. After I solo'd the one, I waited until my friend returned.

I also found that you need to cast Magic Resist, Disease Resist, and Poison Resist Buffs on yourself. I am not sure if you need cold and fire resist because I had them up also and never got hit by a cold or fire spell. They also cast a DD spell that hit me several times for over 500 hp with my resist buffs up.

No, you would die. I would say minimal you'd need to be level 60 to solo here in any way. You could potentially solo by using root/snare however, and dungeon bonus is good.
