I got stuck in this zone last night due to missing the files as well. It appears they put them back in during the patch though.
Zone loading

So, I tried to zone in here with my cleric but appearantly my computer doesnt have that zone loaded onto it. I tried looking it up on Tech Support but its old and it did no good does anyone know an updated way to download this? If so it would be nice if you could contact me lol

BE WARNED: killing ANY normal spawn creature in this zone will set your standing one lower (20%, from ally to warmly, warmly to indif and so on). Just so you all know. Clerics be warned, YOU NEED THIS FACTION TO DO TURN IN. and to get it back you must kill shadowmen, very slow gain for really quick loss.
Stupid People bother me....
Plamsatic Priest Update
# Jun 30 2003 at 1:25 AM Rating: Decent
I was browsing and saw the question below from some time ago. I was curious and found that the Plasmatic Priest is a triggered spawn in the cleric epic. And yes, he is KOS to all. If you go, make sure you check the zone when you zone in and make sure no one is doing epic.

So let me get this right...this is strictly a quest zone? I'm still fairly new to the game...so bear with me. Anyway, i was looking up armor quests and saw these here in this temple. If this is a quest only zone then i've been missing out.

Basically quest only. However, there are a few times when someone needs to kill a mob in here. Of course, for part of a quest. For example, cleric epic requires a kill in here.

I understand that there is a way to change your casting specialization in the Temple of Ro.
Does anyone have any idea who I need to talk to in there?
I have talked to everyone I can find and no luck. (unfortunately the guy that lowers faction also)

kill Shadowmen. Also, you can turn in Dervish Rings, 4 at a time, to Ortallus, the Orc in South Ro.
Un-PK flag quest

I heard long ago that a pk removal quest was in here. I made the huge mistake of flagging pk for my pally for the cool name, didn't know about the no cast on others no cast on you stuff. Would like to get him back out and in action soon ;)
Temple not friendly to large races

I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I had my darkforge armor pieces in hand and came to the temple ready to claim my reward, when I find that I can't get through the front door because I was TOO BIG. I had to go and buy a stupid ant potion. Bah.
Binding in Temple Zone

Just to let eveyone know. On the Firiona Vie server you cannot bind in this zone.

When I went into the Temple today, My faction was indifferent. How many ShadowMen, or how many hours killing them, do I have to spend before I am amiable?

# Aug 27 2001 at 2:23 PM Rating: Default
Heh I accidentally hailed the effrete and I still have mage quests with Vira to do. I'm not KOS but they are apprehensive to me, so, can I still give the items to Vira and get the quests done that I need, plus get my faction back? If anyone knows please inform me at o_o_assassin_o_o@hotmail.com

# Jul 19 2001 at 10:04 PM Rating: Default
I accidently hailed the effrete not knowing who exactly he was, I just thought he was some cool looking genie guy, and I hailed him. I then saw that my faction got worse and realized he was the effrete. My character is a Wizard that worships Solusek Ro, and when I hailed the effrete, I got worried. I only hailed him once, am I still ok?

Plasmatic priest?
# Jul 04 2001 at 11:18 PM Rating: Default
I visited the temple for the first time tonight to look around. Everything conned amiable towards me since I'm a Solusek Ro worshiping wizard. Then, "Plasmatic priest hits YOU for 140 dmg", etc. Needless to say I died. Has anyone else seen this? I was pretty pissed being killed in the temple of the god my character worshiped.
Optional Patch
# Jun 25 2001 at 3:44 AM Rating: Decent
To the lvl 14 with a minor problem, try running the optional patch before you finish logging in, it will appear after it asks if you are willing to 'Continue playing', just slide your mouse over and click 'Optional Patch'

The Temple of Solusek Ro is one of the files in that patch, plus others, and is vital if you want to finish your quest.

See if that's the answer, otherwise, I'm not sure what's wrong, /shrug
lelvl restriction?

There is no level restriction that I am aware of. The first 2 times I tried to enter this zone, I ran through the bright purple area at the zone line, and was transported back to the entrance to Lavastorm from Nektulos. Smiley: blush Duh... The third time, I ran up to the zone line, and clicked on it, and voila!, then I zoned in. So that's what's up with that, for future reference. Smiley: rolleyes

Don't do mage quests!
# May 23 2001 at 9:44 PM Rating: Default
I, being an enchantress, am Princess of quests...illusions, faction spells and what-not make just about any quest doable to me.

Well my dumb **** didn't know the magician focus items were 'no drop', so here I went, paid 25pp for a stein (from an auction) and 105pp for a sapphire, in Neriak, got me mermaid scale and ice giant toes out of storage in the bank, headed off to the Temple of Sol. Ro and gave Vira what she asked for...what I got was the Stein of Ulissa.....which is coincidently, 'no drop'!!!

I was majorly leagued bummed after finding out I wasted 130pp in a day, in hopes of selling, to make a profit...alas, I found out the hard way that ALL magician quest items are no drop, unlike the cleric/necro/enchanter and most other classes out of the Temple...."I was so pissed!" is an understatement folks

...that's me in the corner weeping...

Should have done your homework before going to all that trouble in the hope of making a fast buck. =)
When they ask for gold....
# Feb 04 2001 at 6:43 PM Rating: Default
When I was buying fire opals I figured that the price was low enough to take a chance on giving something other than gold. Genni wants 550gps for a fire opal. Well I bought 4 fire opals in every coin combo I had the coin for and as long as it added up to 55pp or 550gp or whatever I got the gems.

Here there be...

Here There Be Dragons.
Ok well, a sneaky Wurm anyhow.
He's tricky to pull and kill. Heres a technique that has worked. It is dangerous. Use a group of 50+'s, tank heavy preferably.

The target is on the balcony on the left side (right if you are looking from the bottem), his name is Lord something of Burning Wood. (no its not "SOMETHING", I just cant remember it right now, geesh),

Have the enchanter use the best of the sooth line of spells on the mobs in the pull path. Have the ranger or sk, (sk preferably) pull with a spell.

I should probably mention where to pull to at this point, yes?

Ok on the way up to the balcony there is a stairs. Fight him at the bottom of the stairs closest to his spawn point. Just be sure to keep the doors closed so you dont pull any elementals. Some groups like to pull to zone and hail him till the puller can zone back in. This brings a ton of elementals and for some reason the two keepers on the other side of the big door often decide to join the fray.

NOTE: This SERIOUSLY trashes your Temple faction. My advice, dont do this unless at least amniable.. then go and kill 150-200 shadow men to get the faction back.

Oh, he drops a scale for wurmslayer. A truely cool 1hs now. (Dont ding me for saying I like the weapon, I know its not the best but its pretty good and not that tough to get. )

BTW his spawn time is like 3 minutes so if someone is there they should be willing to share... its not like its a spot you would want to hunt for xp.

(Although admitedly dark races if you can get the pull down perfectly, this spot would rock. I got noticably xp at 51 and thats saying something. It can be insanely dangerous to do though.)
RE: Here there be...

It's not necessary to kill Lord Lyfyx however. If you don't relish pain, you can say to him "I want your scale" and get a quest for it.
