Send a correction
Zhisza is a Sanctuary built for the Shissar by the Combine Loyalists. With a warm, humid atmosphere, it consists of a thick jungle with several clearings, tents, and bodies of water. Along the northern boundary of the jungle is a giant pyramid home to some of the strongest of the Shissar.

The Shissar are quite angry with the Combine Loyalists and are not as welcoming to visitors as the Sphinx are, although they do manage to co-exist with several other creatures -- namely the beetles, insects, snakes, and gorillas found throughout their sanctuary.

Visitors are advised to tread carefully and slowly while in Zhisza. If possible, avoid detection by the Shissar, else be prepared for battle.

This zone is a steaming pile, no wonder nobody bothers with going here. First off it's a pita to get to and then entirely disappointing once you do. Stupid layout, pathing issues, no reasonable place/places to 'camp', etc. all contribute to this being a total waste of time. Is there some reason that the worst zones in the game get designated as hot-zones?

I've found that the all the insects and gorillas aggro together and the Shissar and Golems aggro together, but they don't cross-aggro. There are a lot more insects, especially in the entrance area. Just wanted to pass that along.

As I level 80 ench I killed maybe 3 mobs, and died twice in about 30 minutes all told in the zone. 1st time w/ a warr merc, 2nd with 76 ranger and 2 warr mercs. Here's what I learned.

a) Zone in is not safe - must invis before!
b) Zone out is atop a tiny pyramid thing, close to zone in (only 1 out)
c) Map is a circle of winding narrow road that links the mission spots. Very hard to target mobs from a distance even in the relatively open areas.
d) The bugs remain indifferent, they never attack.
e) The Pain golems see invis, nothing else seems to
f) If it's not a bug it aggro's , medium aggro range
g) The other mobs are shissar (ssra), gorillas and golems
h) Shissar all summon
i) I could not find a safe place to pull, plenty of adds, and see invis golems.
j) High spells resists on Shissar, use malo etc.
k) 1 single shissar chewed through my well buffed lvl 80 T1 merc (reliance, haste unity etc). While shissar was slowed, dotted & weakend it took merc down to 30%, and that was w/ my charmed shissar assisting.
l) At 80 the mobs were all dark blue
m) Shissar can quad for 1,800 and usually hit for 300 - 400, blazing fast even slowed.
n) It will not be possible to FD pull, space is too tight, and too many wandering mobs (all the mobs seem to be wandering)
o) Shissar break charm badly, even w/ charm aa's, and tash.
p) Drops elaborate defiant and a couple plat.

Suggestion: Don't go here unless you are at in a group that's 76+. I think 3 lvl 80's would do okay with mercs if they have crowd control (mez), and a healer. Kiting and FD pulling are out.

Level 80 ench, and I can play an ench. Here a) w/ a warr merc, then b) with 76 ranger and 2 warr mercs.

a) zone in is not safe - must invis before!
b) zone out is atop a tiny pyramid thing, close to zone in (only 1 out)
c) map is a circle, a narrow road linking the mission spots.
d) the bugs remain indifferent, they never attack.
e) The Pain golems see invis, nothing else seems to
f) If it's not a bug it aggro's , medium aggro range
g) The other mobs are shissar (ssra), gorillas and golems
h) Shissar all summon
i) I could not find a safe place to pull, plenty of adds
j) High spells resists on snakemen, use malo etc
k) 1 single shissar chewed through my lvl 80 T1 merc with reliance, haste unity etc. & a rune. While it was slowed, and weakened.. and I had a charmed pet assisting. He finished the battle at 30%.
l) At 80 the mobs were all dark blue
m) Shissar can quad for 1,800 and usually hit for 300 - 400, blazing fast even slowed.
n) It will not be possible to FD pull, space is too tight, and too many wandering mobs (all the mobs seem to be wandering)
o) b/c the zone is 95% winding narrow channels it was very hard to target mobs

Suggestion: Don't go here unless you are at least 76 (3 people + mercs), really I think 3 lvl 80's would do okay with mercs if they have crowd control (mez), and a healer. Again, kiting, FD pulling are out.

Zone in?

Where in Katta Castrum is the zone in for this zone? Now that it is a hot zone, I wanted to check it out. Katta Castrum is so large though with way too many dead ends.

Just west of the far north point in the zone. Either start high on the temple and levi over the wall, or go around). Or do the portals quest chain.
