The Deep

Send a correction
Among the deepest portions beneath the surface of the moon, The Deep is a volatile area not only due to the thought horrors, razorfiends, and underbulks, but for its namesake: The massive chasm in the middle of the network of caverns, along with a false bridge and a very abrupt drop almost guaranteed to be fatal.

On the other side of the chasm are the elder thought horrors, led by the Thought Horror Overfiend. Even further into the twisting caves and beyond the Overfiend is a secret entrance into the basement of Ssraeshza Temple.

For anyone interested. If you use find (ctrl+f) and choose the ssra temple the mystical path will lead you across the invisible bridge.

I find that rather amusing actually. Thanks for posting.
new mobs in deep

I just started the Burrower event in The Deep and the first waves had two new mobs not listed:

a fabled stone carver
a fabled spined rock burrower
a fabled core burrower
a fabled parasite larvae

The first 3 were level 70, the last one was level 75. Just normal trash loot (silks, acrylia pieces)

I hope this doesn't mean the final boss is going to be a fabled version. If it is, I have the wrong merc out...


the final mob (A fabled burrower parasite) WAS fabled even though the indicator mob was not (The Burrower Beast)

New or Unlisted Mob - spore filled shrieker

Came across this mob while putzing about in The Deep. Note that it also drops the Deepspore for the Deepspores for Deklean and Dwarf Cultural Armor (DoN).

I didn't realise it was unlisted here so I didn't grab a screenshot of the mob, but I do have my chat box showing my looting of it:

I have no idea what level it is as everything is grey to me in The Deep -- I'd surmise on par with the rest of the mushroom mobs.

Mobs Run?
# Nov 12 2007 at 2:26 PM Rating: Decent
I mostly 2-box with my Beastlord and Enchie, so its important for me to know if the mobs run and I have to root them or they just fight to the bitter end. The latter is preferable as I then use that spell slot for something else.

65 cleric method to get across chasm
# Sep 16 2005 at 9:24 AM Rating: Decent
This is how I get across the chasm on Al'Kabor (65 cleric method). Yes, on the lame Mac server that doesn't have any expansions beyond PoP.

1) Load Divine Barriar and Divine Aura and get SoW 15 min before entering the zone. Do not get SoE or FoE as its a no levitate zone and they will be stripped upon entering The Deep.

2) Use an invis potion to get past the first 2 groups of mushrooms after entering The Deep from Echo. There is a safe spot after the second group where you can buff before the run.

3) Buff magic resist and disease resist (switch on some appropriate resist gear as well if you have) if you haven't done this earlier. During the run, DB is gonna drop and there will be a small window of opportunity for a mob to stun (magic based) or root (disease based) you before you cast Divine Aura and finish your run and jump into the chasm.

4) Cast Supernl Elxir (SE) upon yourself followed immediately by Divine Barriar and start running. Now, if you have maxed SCR and SCRM, SE will last 6 ticks meaning that during that very short window after DB drops and before DA is cast you will still have your HoT working.

5) Run and make the following turns: right--right--left--left--and then right into the opening to the chasm and jump in. Now, as you are running, if you have done SCR and SCRM to extend your buffs, right after the second left turn DB will drop and you have to stop to cast DA before making the final right turn and jump into the chasm. Right there is the only risky part of the run, but as DA casts in 1 second I seem to be able to get it off like 9 outa 10 times.

6) Once you hit the bottom, turn NW and run to and up the ramp and then camp out to remove any resiual aggro. I do not know for sure you have to camp out, but to me it's just sound play to remove any residual aggro your huge train generated.

An interesting method, and fun, but you're making it way more difficult than it needs to be. As long as you have the in game maps loaded, it's easy. Take a few invis pots if you don't have the spell, invis up and head in following the map to the chasm. There is a chance of a few mobs seeing invis, you just have to con them to check as you go along. As a 65 cleric you would have pacify, and you can lull the ones that see through invis, re-invis, and continue on. Once you're at the chasm, follow the in game map across the invis bridge.

Yeah, it can be more fun to DA and jump but you'll most likely aggro a mob or two and have to deal with them.

Another reason to make use of the in game map feature.
Some people are like slinkies, they aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

Alas, the mac server has no expansions past PoP, and therefore has no in-game maps.

Right. For user with no in game map, an easier way is to hit one mob till it runs on low health or use fear spell then follow it when it tries to run away.

My guildie had an interesting way of making the invis bridge visible for quicker raid party movement, he summoned several hands of ixblat (low level pet toy), then dropped one every few steps or so along the way. The rest of us just followed the flashing red object. No one fell from this trick.

Cheap and effective =)

From below the invisible bridge you actually SEE it if you look up. It appears hazey, but it's defintely there. Drop down, get underneath the bridge, get a loc, go to opposite side of chasm and do the same thing and VIOLA! Next time you need to get across just have your handy locs ready and you should be able to move across. That being said, I don't have the correct loc to start from on the Echo side, but..I know once you start across, the direction is pretty much North-NorthWest to the other side.
Hope that helps. Next time I'm crossin's the bridge I'll get an Echo-side loc for ya to start from.
new info?
# Aug 26 2005 at 7:11 AM Rating: Decent
Ok...nobody's posted anything on the Deep in a while, so I'll throw in my 2 coppers and ask a question at the same time.
Info...appears, after the initial 4 shriekers (one of which appears to be the, or at least one of the, PH's for deepspore mushroom) when entering from echo there are enthralled underbulks, outcasts, and razorfiends, some of which are lt blue to 63. So, it's at least possible they are in the correct lvl range for a DC pet. Had just paid 150plat for a virt for my summoned pet, so didn't want to chuck him just to find out 'enthralled' means non-DCable, as has been conjectured elsewhere on this page.
So, the info, is that this might be a good DC zone if (and here's the question part) 'enthralled' mobs are DCable.

It is part of the mage 2.0 epic quest so there's a map on there.

If you'd rather not have to take the invis bridge, you can slide down a stalagmite that is to the left of the illusioned 'fake' bridge. Just keep running into it and you will take about 400-800 falling damage on a bad fall (w/o safefall). There is a ramp on the far wall, a bit right of center.

Whats the trick to make it through to the invis bridge. I solo there alot at 65 (beastlord). I see people run into the zone from echo caverns, invis, and fly by me. Do they basically train to the ssraa temple zone to lose aggro then zone back over, or can you cast see invis vs. undead. The only I can forsee making it to VT shards or any of the raid mobs is to kill my way mob by mob. It's just inefficient any help would be appreciated.

This collection of caverns reminds me of the LDON adventures in Mistmore. As such it is ideal for Pacify pulling. Most of the mobs are not of a level where this won`t work.

Our group of 58 Pally, 58 Bl, 58 Wiz, 56 Warrior, 54 Druid and 50 Warrior had no trouble single pulling to the zone by using pacify. The back spawns can be a problem as they are unpredictable.

We made some good xp but there was little loot. The BL got some padding for her epic off the shrooms so that added to the sucess of the mission.

Trick for crossing invis bridge
# Oct 08 2003 at 4:28 AM Rating: Good
When you get to the pit area you will find a lone shroom. Beat this shroom down to 10% health and then let him run.
He runs across the invis bridge to the other side.He runs across the invis bridge to the other side.
Well dang its just too easy! (BTW make sure u cross single file and dont kill him till you get to the other side).
Pacify... pacify... pacify
# Oct 02 2003 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
Lately have been coming here with 62 necromancer and 56 cleric. The cleric pacifies and the necromancer generally pulls with splurt, sicks pet, dot, snare, FD, med. Cleric typically sends in pet then sits and meds until necro pet needs a CH.

We typically move through tunnels keeping ahead of the repops. There are some areas where speed is critical as by the time you're killing the last mob repops are occuring.

Mainly staying on the Echo Caverns side. Haven't seen any nameds yet. Money sucks. Only item of note was a Pain Sphere. Necro made 4 blue AA (80%AA) an hour. Cleric made 2 blue (100% experience) in that same time.

I have heard that the spell "Acient: Gift of Ageoism" (cleric, level 60) drops off one of the burrowers in this zone. I heard it in game from someone that was doing an MGB of it. Anybody heard of anything like that?? Previously I tought it only dropped in 2 zones (several mobs in Vex Thal, Lord Protector in Sacntus Seru).

Thank you for your time;

This zone isnt too bad now. A 65 Pally and 60 Druid can duo here easily. Invis up at ent go left then around to the right towards the Fake Bridge. Right before there is a nice safe spot to camp. You have Thought Leech spawns to both sides of you. (Note this was our 2nd attempt).
First attempt didnt go well but druid was only 55. And had to evac on first pull as 3 came.
Now 2nd time desided to try pacify. I had almost forgot us pallys could pacify 55 and under mobs. It used to didnt work right. Well every mob except the rare lev 56 Thought Leech that would pop on ocasion(sp) worked like a charm. Never got more then one. By the time you clear both sides of you they usally start popping again. And if your faster then respawn. Druid See invis/Invis both move towards fake bridge. And pull the lone shrieker and then pacify and pull the leeches. Havent seen the shard drop yet. But will keep at it.

# May 11 2003 at 9:16 PM Rating: Good
Today my group and I spent many hours in this zone. We were 2 mages, 1 druid, 1 shadowknight, 1 monk and a cleric, all 60+.
Right from the beginning single pulling is almost impossible. All we knew about this zone is that the shards for the Vex Thal key drop there. That was pretty much it. Luckily with the downloaded maps it was easy to navigate there. Hubby and I kept sending our eyes of tallon out to see what was ahead of us.
The tunnels are filled with mobs. Fighting is constant and if you are not fast enough the repops will catch up with you.
At some point you will get to the deep pit with the invisible bridge. Funny thing was there is actually a bridge that looks very transluscent, so we thought that was the one we were looking for. Well, it wasn't and our SK took a painful fall, but didn't die. So stay away from that bridge, it's just an illusion.
The real invisible bridge is a little to the side of the fake one and can't be seen, not even with See Invisible. It's like the leap of faith out of Indiana Jones, was actually pretty exciting :)
Once you cross that bridge you enter another maze of tunnels which will eventually lead to Ssra temple. We didn't make it there, since some in our group had to leave.
We killed well over 100 mobs and didn't loot anything worh mentioning. Shards didn't drop either. Either the drops are super rare or the good stuff only drops from named mobs. And btw we didn't encounter any named mobs at all, so I assume all or most named are close to Ssra temple.
All in all I can say it's a fun zone for those who like to explore. But it's not a zone to solo in and it should not be entered without a healer.
Have fun :)

Watch out for the shriekers, they turned my level 53 Druid into a mushroom just for the purposes of humiliation and then killed me . No joke. It's some kind of curse spell apparently. Makes it really hard to run away.
