The bat that spawned Tserrina for me had the same name as all the others in the hall, but it conned as a rare creature.

As a heroic’ed enchanter doing my epic, I had to get to the top floor anyway, so I wasn’t leaving without the master key. Be careful doing this with higher levels today. The newer damage shields cost me 2 key dropper spawns on the way up.

What is the name of the bat?

They are the same shrouded bats that populate all the rooms down Tserrina’s hallway. The one that spawned her for me had the same name, but conned as rare.

I created "a shrouded bat (rare)" and marked it as a rare creature.

After clearing bats several times on the 7th floor (8-15 times, lost track over four days) and growing more impatient with the one hour spawn time, I saw that others posted about finding bats elsewhere too. When I found only 2 bats had re-popped after a two hour afk I went down to the third floor to start clearing and map out if any bats were to be found. Indeed found one and indeed T spawned.... how long had she been waiting there for me??

I was casting voice of sionachie rk.ii (bard song) on her and she restisted about 95% of the time. Was able to charm her a few times.

While charmmed, I gave her various items, including a soul orb from "spirit aid" quest. She took them all, but no response. She did not respond to hails. She conned amiable.

I talked to her about mayong, cara omica, weddings, shadows. no response. I wondered if you ever got high enough faction if she would say something. Nope. I also charmed Librarian, Librarian's assistant, the teacher, Cara Omica, Nosja (groom) and Daman (bride), Majes (priest), and the djinn. No responses from any of them regarding most of the subjects above.

Was hoping to get a little bit of info on how to use Crystallized Shadows, or anything really. (don't think they are usable in the spirit aid quest, despite what the alla quest info states.)

The normal bats have about 3000 hps. The bat that spawned her had about 1700 hps. Thing to watch for is the bat dying quickly. Spawned her on the second clearing of the hidden hallway on the top floor.

Spent a few days in ToFS recently and decided to go all the way.

I was a lvl 44 Druid (defiant geared) with the new tank merc. Getting all the keys was a major pain but when I finally made it up to the top level. I just went all the way to the back of the zone and the very first bat I killed spawned her (furthest room down the long hallway).

After being nailed by that Magi Curse a few times before on other mobs I knew I wasn't going to have my mana for long. The merc ran in and started trashing her so I stuck her with 4 dots and burned her down with DD spells. She only came after me twice so the tank merc did a really great job.

I was really not even going to try it after I read all the hype about her but I guess defiant gear and a merc make a huge difference lol.

Just sharing my story because I've wanted that key for a while now and I'm happy :P
# Nov 07 2008 at 6:52 AM Rating: Decent
er I was lvl 47 or 48 not 44 lol...still an extremely fast fight

stick as many dots as you can while a tank or merc has her attention then nuke her down

i know a great majority of people know that you can hit the sit command to stop spinning but i said it again just in case :)
Tserrina Syl'Tor and You: What you need to know

I used to kill Tserrina quite often on my druid a year or two ago with usually very little problem. I wanted her staff for an alt, so I decided to go up there again and encountered a rather deadly problem.

Tserrina has gained a new ability called Magi Curse, which seems to be unresistable. It deals 100 damage and drains 100 mana every tick and always landed, even when I popped a Veteran reward and got 505 to each resist.

I only managed to survive because I had a boxed cleric who kept me alive while I kept my epic's clickie dot on her. Eventually I had to drink a mana potion and managed to finish her off.

Either bring a friend or burn her QUICKLY before she runs you out of mana.

Edit: Just tried again with my ranger and cleric. It went smoother, but I didn't resist a single Magi Curse. The spell info on Alla shows it as unresistable. I could shrug off some of the stun affects of Magi Curse, though. Also, she's not undead.

I was working my way up to the fourth floor for my 1.5 prequest on my 65 monk when I found a bat on the third floor... lo and behold, I kill it and Tserrina pops up! The fight started pretty well, but after bringing her down to about 70% (I was at maybe 85%) she started chaining stun spells... literally, I was unable to attack in between them, and pretty soon I was losing badly. Finally I gave up and used my resistance discipline, and never got a stun landed on me again. Moral of the story? Bring magic resistance.

Also, she summons and flees at about 15-20% (didn't see the exact number). Be careful here because for me, she summoned me, I hit her as she hit me with some sort of knockback spell then started running immediately, and it took me about 20 seconds to find her again. She likes to chain knockback spells (which I didn't resist with resist discipline on) with summoning, which can be a pain to deal with when trying to figure out where you just went.
Master Key farming

I have brought a bunch of alts to the top floor to kill Tserrina for the master key, in preparation for the fabled season starting in a few weeks. I have no idea what the spawn timers are on trash but I can tell you it is not the same for the shrouded bats that pop Tserrina.

I have killed the bats once, getting one Tserrina, and since then I have killed the Shadowed torch room twice with no Shrouded Bats repoping. Either they are on a different spawn timer or they OFTEN skip spawns. There were only 3 up when I arrived so that may be the case.

Anyway, If you want to farm the master key, prepare for a long camp.

Bats are on a different spawn timer. ~40 min - everything else is 10 min.

Fabled Tserrina spawned for me off the 2nd bat from the fake wall. That was an unpleasant surprise.

I had never hunted in ToFS and in fact had only been here with friends for the Rogue Epic 1.5 piece. So last night I decided to take a peek. Needless to say for a Level 80 rogue in an end game Guild the content was no challenge. What amazed me was the fact that I had to kill and collect the keys for every floor and I did it all in under 30 minutes. Not sure if I was super lucky or not, but it was fun basically defeating a zone in a half hour.

Yeah. Yeah, you were super lucky. I'm a lvl 80 warrior in an end game guild... and I had to clear every floor at least 3 times, more often 6-10 times for the right key mob to pop.

/sigh, then again, I could be just really UNlucky. It did take me nearly a month of killing in Skyfire mountains, for 4 hours or more per day, to get my cleric's pearlescent shards for her 1.0. What a nightmare.
Magi Curse

So I've been going after this witch for years now. Finally found her tonight only to be failed by that damn magi curse! It's such a cheap spell. Anyways, a 67 cleric solo took her down to about 20% hp before she killed me. Get the opinion that she was LOM at that point because she wasn't always casting and i could get spells off. Anyways, bring help or back up for her. That curse is a doozie.

I was on the third floor killing stuff, and I ran into a bat. I killed the bat and all of the sudden I was blinded and beaing beatin alive by her. She must spawn anywhere a shadowed bat can. Sucked. I will have my revenge.

# Mar 17 2007 at 1:41 PM Rating: Decent
No, she spawns after you kill the bat, and spawns where the corpse drops. Its about once out of every 5, but its random.
Mystery solved.

Orginally, there was another mirror. Each mirror was SUPPOSE to take you to a certain level. 7 mirrors, first six for each level and the 7th to port you back out to iceclad. I dunno when it happened but now all the mirrors take you out, go figure. As for the "mysterious" 8th floor....That is the floor the mirrors are on. From the 7th floor, take the spiral stairs up to the 8th floor.

Orginally it went this way.
Once to the 7th floor, you would fight Tserrina after finding which was her in the back area (past the torch room) where the shrouded bats were. If you allowed her to gate she would gate to the 8th floor beyond the 2nd locked door (the first locked door could be opened with the large metal key dropped from Vhalsera).
Then she would summon you 1 by 1 and kill the raid. Because no one could get past the 2 locked doors unless you had ALREADY had Tserrina key you were pretty much SoL. IF you did kill Tserrina, 1 person looted her key, raid followed the keyholder up the stairs to the 8th floor, opened the 2nd locked door (at which point it becomes soul bound now days) and you would find the "room of mirrors" that took you to any floor or back out again.

This must have seemed too hard and it got NERFED. Now you only need the large metal key to get to the room of mirrors. Tserria key only allows you to go to the room of mirrors from level 1 and has no other use. You can also use the level 1 mirror on the left to make it soulbound to you now days. As for the 7th mirror that disappeared, that was the one mirror that was SUPPOSE to take you back to iceclad.
I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you thought you heard was not what I meant.

All I know about this "eighth floor" is that Tserrina drops magical lore items, that can unlock the secrets of the floor(as far as the eq manual said - why'd I read that thing? No one reads manuals! Well hey, I was bored!) and the key she drops does NOT take you to the eighth floor, but the Room of Mirrors, which will take you to any floor in the Tower of Frozen Shadow. One mirror in the room, however, does nothing. Like I said, the items Tserrina drops should give some hints about this final floor...
good fight at 50

My regular threesome started through the tower in our high 40s; by the time we spawned Tserrina we were 49 SK, 50 Bard, 50 Cleric. It was a close fight. The SK doesn't have vet rewards but the other two used Infusion of the Faithful, and some of Tserrina's spin-stuns were still getting through. Between that and charm we were having enough trouble just staying on her that we didn't have much control over positioning, so she ended up in a corner behind a lamp and summoned the SK and Bard there, where we both got stuck and were unable to hit her. Fortunately by then we had her down low enough that the cleric (and the mighty SK pet) finished her off. Not much useful loot for those classes, alas, though the SK did get the snare-whip.

As noted elsewhere on this page, her bat conned LB to us at 49-50 (and saw through invis) whereas the other bats were DB and can't see invis.

While we were healing up afterward another LB bat spawned and aggroed on us. We knew we couldn't handle a second Tserrina fight with our vet rewards blown (Cleric had also used the hp/mana replenishment one) so the cleric used root and atone to clear aggro.

Did they nerf NPC Charm, by the way? The SK got charmed a few times but it seemed to act more like a mez; he was never forced to attack the others.

Ok couple things to confirm lvl 70 shammy here. to get the Vahsir to spawn in 6b you indeed need to kill the ice shade in the big room that has the pet that will trigger Vahsir (not sure if i spelled it right) also he will either spawn in the room when you zone into 6b or up the lil ramp there where the bats are. once you kill him he drops key to the 7th floor.
now for Tserrina, there was some very good information in this section there is a hidden corridor where all the shade torches are on the north end side go through there and the first room on the right there was a shrouded bat once i killed it Tserrina spawned LB to a lvl 70 but a piece of cake. also dont know who advisor is up on top floor but he cons dark blue to lvl 70 and killed him once but he does hit very hard doesnt hurt to have 13k hps with just shammy buffs and my AA spirit call they helped out alot. anyways my lvl 35 necro has the master key plus all the other keys from 1st floor to 7th now :P which doesnt matter now that i have master thx

Ok here couple more questions First killed tserrina again and got me a master key but she didnt spawn in the first alcove she spawned in the back alcove after i killed a bat back there. so she (her bat) can be ne of the shrouded bats and i dont think there confined to the hidden hallway. think ne of the bats can spawn her if its her bat.
also the mirrors in the 6mirror room all lead to the outside . read a post where someone said one of the mirrors was not working and gave a message but confirmed all lead to outside. and she is very resistant lvl 70 shammy and she resisted all my dots multiple times. did land a slow on her. and what is this about an 8th floor ? I cant find ne thing about an 8th floor . also the room where the advisor is (chanter 1.5 epic) someone mentioned about a locked door? cant find a locked door either. would like to know what that big room is for just before the 6 mirror room ?

Ok just to answer a few of your questions. A few years ago they came out with the Everquest Triligy I assume that self explanitory (I actually purchased that one got me started on EQ) in the little "guid" that came with it there was a thing about the Tower of Forzen Shadow. In the guid it says there are rumors of an 8th Floor Exsisting in the Tower if you Find Tserrina and loot her Treasures you may find a secret's blah blah blah...Well either nobody bothered to look for it and EQ just decided this hidden zone that nobody was finding was a waste of space and removed it or it never actually exsisted.

It should be noted however that there was once a mirror up stairs that said every time you clicked on it you are not holding the key even with that master. That mirror has since been removed if you look on the walls there is a spot were their should be a seventh Mirror it's missing...if I remember right there were origanlly seven and one day there was just Six. Anyway that's how the rumors about the 8th floor Started...My Necro went through There and killed Tserrina several times and Identified each of her items never found anything of interest but this was after the mirror was removed...I don't know if an 8th floor exsisted it may or may not have I don't really care I had lot's of fun hours there either way.

The locked door probably refers to the door to the Mirror room that is locked unless you have the master key. the big room just befor the six mirror room is just a big room it's just kind of there...

Oh Finnally as far as I know Tserrina can spawn really in any of the Alcoves or actually the bat that spawns her can.
8th floor

There are always stairs between floors in all the buildings I have seen. Course we don't have teleporters in real life. So on the 7th floor there is a spirial staircase leading the the "mysterious" 8th floor. The floor of mirrors.

As for it existing, someone used a program, one that allows you to load a zone file and explore without being logged on or haveing any mobs in the zone. No 8th floor was found.

As for the mirror, I wasn't around when it was there and since I never "saw" it with my own eyes, I don't believe it existed.
I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you thought you heard was not what I meant.

If you're doing the saving FV quest, here's the "new" Tsserina:

-Level 78 Warrior
-Quads 2400s (~275dps once slowed)
-800k hp
-Casts http://lucy.allakhazam.com/spell.html?id=6531&source=Live every 15 seconds.

Bring a bard and she's cake. When she dies, the entire tower shakes and it's freaking cool as hell. It's a totally awesome limited revamp and I really hope SoE does stuff like this again. The entire clear of the tower took about six hours or so, and most of that time was probably figuring out how to get through the 6A floor. =P

Btw, the 1st floor yellow con spectre fight where he grav fluxes you all over the place and warps around the pit was one of the most creative and coolest encounters I've ever done. It was frustrating if you didn't have the right classes, but it kicked a lot of ***.

I (Glean 70 Chanter Tarrew Marr) Killed a bat and Tserrina spawned. I know she did cus there was no vampire split after the bat kill, and I saw text "Tserrina begins to cast a spell". Well she must have cast a gate, because she was not there anymore. I looked everywhere on that level and up where Advisor Svartmane is, and no Tserrina. She Poofed.

Poofed on me too, twice. First time I actually saw her for just a second and then she was gone. She gave the "arrrreewwwww" yell, but she poofed. I thought maybe I needed to pull her out of the little room the bats were in so the second time I pulled the little bat to the circular room and one time the enraged vampire just didn't spawn. I checked text and got the "Tserrina begins to cast a spell" but never saw her. Sent a bug report. This bites; i have all the other keys to the place and I'd like to pick up the master key before the revamp.
Indeed She Does
# Dec 28 2004 at 4:38 AM Rating: Decent
Level 70 Cleric of Povar, I was going to kill her for nostalgia and get a friend a master key. Happened 2 times where I killed a bat and nothing popped off of it. I thought it was a glitch the first time, but the second, I checked these boards and then my text and it said "Tserrina Syl'Tor begins to cast a spell.". I guess level 70 players aren't allowed to fight her, or maybe those who already have keys.

Almost, but not quite, a mildly tough fight for a 65 Necro... ended up with about 60% mana, but only had to heal the 61 warrior pet once. The only spell she resisted was the level 63 Darkness (snare), otherwise I cast Funeral Pyre on her twice, plus a couple of Neurotoxins and Touch of Mujakis. Went down in about 90 seconds.

Been soloing her for a for a while now, self-buffed 65 druid. Hand of Ro, DoTs, and just spam nukes. But, the weaker bat does seem to have a better chance of spawning, also it seems the one that sees invis does also.

65 nec, really easy, only healed pet once. has a descent amount of hp, but is very weak.
