Just like the OLD Everquest Guide Keys to the Tower of Frozen Shadow (OLD)

In Torment of Velious, The Tower of Frozen Shadow requires you to collect keys per floor.



The First Key can port up your entire group. For keys that spawn on random mob deaths, you may have to crawl the floor to get it to spawn instead of camping in 1 spot.



Key to Floor 2:

This Key is Key of Acquiescence. To get it, kill random mobs on Floor 1 until one respawns on death as "a large frost-bitten gnoll", kill this mob and loot the key.



Key to Floor 3:

This Key is Key of Optimism. To get it, kill a ghostly student on Floor 2 until one respawns on death as an angrier librarian. Kill this mob and loot the key.



Key to Floor 4:

This Key is Key of Melancholy. To get this Key you must do a Hail and Turn in chain of 7 mobs, if you succeed you will see an emote per, if you die during this, it resets, and you will have to redo the Hails and Turn ins.

a yearning armored shadow (Roams the Floor) - gives Broom - Turn in to a yearning zombie butler
a yearning zombie butler - gives Book - Turn in to a yearning shadow
a yearning shadow - gives Brazier - Turn in to a yearning shadow beast servant
a yearning shadow beast servant - gives Bowl - Turn in to a yearning shadow beast cook
a yearning shadow beast cook - gives Breastbone - Turn in to a yearning skeleton sleeper
a yearning skeleton sleeper - gives Bedsheet - Turn in to a yearning zombie maid
a yearning zombie maid - gives Brass Boots - Turn in to a yearning armored shadow



Key to Floor 5:

This Key is Key of Disdain. To get it, kill frost mummies on Floor 4 until it spawns the named Amontehepna the Second, kill this named and loot the key.

Alternatively:
Kill restless mummy's until you get see a death message: "A restless mummy's corpse drops to the ground as you see a spirit where it stood. Startled, the spirit floats quickly through a wall towards the center of the maze."

Kill "An ascendant adventurer" in the middle of the maze, you see a death message: "An ascendant adventurer's corpse dissipates. You hear a scraping of metal and ice coming from below you."

Drop down a pit trap and kill a rusty armor, on death you will see: "A rusty armor's corpse falls to the ground and out of it oozes the ectoplasm of a once lost spirit. Within it, you can see a key."

Kill "A heroic ectoplasm" and loot the Key.

P -76.4642, -987.5192, 186.9174, 240, 0, 0, 3, an_ascendant_adventurer
P -174.3163, -970.3508, 114.6429, 240, 0, 0, 3, a_rusty_armor



Key to Floor 6:

This Key is Key of Regret.
Kill mobs until you get a death message: "A golem usher's corpse falls to the ground. As it shatters upon the floor, you hear the sound of footsteps prancing in rhythm."

This will spawn a "A Furious Choreographer" in the first room to the right, on death it should have the message: "A furious choreographer's corpse twirls one final twirl before falling to the ground. You hear the sound of instruments being tuned from upstairs."

"An Enraged Composer" spawns up the stairs, kill it to spawn the Maid of Honor in the Center room, kill the Maid of Honor and loot the Key.



Key to Floor 7:

This Key is Key of Repudiation.

To get it, kill guards on floor 6a until you see a death message: "A drolvarg guard's corpse crumples to the ground. It's weapon creating a loud clang as it strikes the floor."

This will spawn a spectre near the throne in the north west room on the same floor, on death it should have a message: "A restless shade's corpse falls. As it does, you hear a loud cackling coming from somewhere else on this floor."

This will spawn a 6th "shadow beast necromancer" on floor 6b, there will be 5 fake "shadow beast necromancers" on floor 6b that are always up, you have to kill the real one that spawns to get the Key, it is the one on the North side of the 7th Floor click spot.

Using a Tracker Class for this will make it easier, once you see 6 up you will know the real one is up.

P 384.4291, -634.3130, 20.7000, 240, 0, 0, 3, a_shadow_beast_necromancer
P 188.7412, -1143.7339, -7.1035, 240, 0, 0, 3, a_restless_shade



Key to Floor 7 - Mirror Room:

This Key is Tserinna's Spare Key.

To get this it, kill a rare creature: Ascendant Svartmane. The PH is a restless tutor. This spawns on floor 7 just outside the mirror room.

This key allows you to take the left mirror on floor 1 straight up to the mirror room. The mirror room has mirrors to every floor of ToFS, granted you have the appropriate key.



Key to Floor 8:

This Key is Key of (What is the name of this key?) . This key comes from The Tower of Frozen Shadow raid.


Mirror Room Key: allows you to go to any Floor you want, you will still need the actual Floor keys
This Key is Tserinna's Spare Key. To get it, kill restless tutor until it spawns the named Ascendant Svartmane and loot the key

Should be noted that if you have not started the TOV Earring Quest and think you may do that quest.. DO NOT DESTROY THE KEYS AFTER YOU PUT THEM ON YOUR KEYRING!

The shadow beast necromancer that dropped the key was across from the red gem looking clicky fixture you click to go up to 7. It was up after the 2 emotes that show that the spectre and the drolvarg have spawned.

Side note, the bats spawn 2x enraged vampires when they die. The bats don't see invis (but see ivu). The vampires (and other undead) don't see ivu (but see invis).

For the 6th Floor Key of Regret, it seems to work best to kill the roaming ushers, not the static ones.
6th Floor Key - Ushers

For me it's always been from the static ushers.

After camping for six keys total, chances are random from any usher.

We fought under the assumption that the mob that we needed to kill was currently spawned, we just needed to find him. Kill all mobs at least once.

This will spawn a 3rd "shadow beast necromancer" on floor 6b, there will be 2 fake "shadow beast necromancers" on floor 6b that are always up, you have to kill the real one that spawns to get the Key, it is the one on the North side of the 7th Floor click spot.

There is 5 shadow beast necromancers spawns on the 6b floor, not including the key mob. So the statment that you can track a third mob to know key mob is up is wrong. If you have 6 shadow beast necromancers on track then the key mob is up.
