Qeynos Catacombs

The evil-aligned Bloodsabers guild makes its home in the catacombs of Qeynos, quite the unwelcoming place for those who come from the city's top side.

The rest of this aqueduct system - half dry, half water submerged - is littered with a variety of creatures from zombies, rats, snakes, and alligators to fish, sharks, and piranhas. Also found here is a band of smugglers, but they stick to the east-northeastern tunnels.

This zone is way above level 12...there are some dk blue cons to a level 12 player but don't go more than 3 feet into the zone....I ran into a bunch of red cons on my level 12 druid and they smacked me in about 2 hits.

Zone Level is more like 15-24....Sent an update to Zam but hasn't been corrected yet.

There is a low side to the catacombs accessed by jumping in the water near the bank.

I was messing around in qeynos and my paladin, seems there is an entrance behind a turret, disguised as part of the town, with a low swim skill, you might drown though.

RE: Really Tough Crap

I have recently been working on the Qeynos Badge series of quests. For the Qeynos Badge of Honor quest you have to go down to the Qeynos Catacombs to kill a shadow knight by the name of Azibelle. Before she spawns you have to kill corrupted guard Helminth. When he spawns, "a necromancer" and a couple of other undead spawns, including "a Rotting Sentry". When you got killed in the sewers by this high level spawn, it was probably because someone had tried to do this quest, was woefully unsuccessful and was too low or too unprepared for the undead that spawned with corrupt Guard Helminth. So don't make the mistake of thinking this zone is too dangerous for newbies...it really isn't. Just sounds like a quest adventure gone wrong. The "a necromancer" was still up and it was just a spot of bad luck. Just FYI, you should be in your high 40s-low 50s to do the Qeynos Badge of Honor as the SK Azibelle conned DB to my 52 ranger. The "a necromancer" and the "a Rotting Sentry" were both green, but fairly high level as they had quite a few hit points (I'm sorry I did not keep track of how many). I hope this helps resolve any confusion over at least a few of the mobs in this zone. Good luck.
Zoning in
# Mar 04 2003 at 6:16 AM Rating: Decent
I had a problem zoning into the Aquaducts from the entrance under the docks. I swam down and opened the grill, entering the zone line. I was shocked...and horrified to find that somehow I had zone into Akanon the Gnome city! I was freaked! I mean, Akanon isn't even in the same continent! Luckily I was only lvl 5, so I just attacked a near by npc to get back. Needless to say though....I have not used that entry since!
Access to Aqueducts
# Jan 22 2003 at 5:44 PM Rating: Decent
Hi all,
I have beeen trying to access the aqueducts on and off for several weeks now, and all the enterances I know of are blocked. the harbour, bank bridge and near the magicians guild are all closed off.

Has anyone else had this trouble, or is there another way in open that I dont know about.

This from the EQ news feed 13th Jan. I drowned trying to get there myself... Fortunately a fast swimming dwarf helped me get my stuff back!

The water entrances in North Qeyons are still open.

Too much drowning citizens on South Qeynos. The Office of the people decided to close some access to the Aqueduct System. The Qeynos Inquirer have some infos.

Dageth Thiglan, former security officer of the Aqueduct System patrol, deny that the access to the underworld of Qeynos was closed because of some "political reasons" (quoted). "If we wanted to close the access to the Qeynos underworld we would have closed all access", he said.

When we asked about the other ways to go to the Aqueduct System, Thiglan refused to detail further. But some shadowy individuals gave us a few hints ("feed the lions" or "they are other places to drown in the north")

That map is actually incorrect for cuber, unless he has 2 spawns. Qubert actually spawns very very close to number 5 on that map... near the frogocks... there is a bloody square spot on the ground...place holder is like a deseased rat, a spider guy, a gel cube and a regular looking rat.

so anyways... I think it might be important to know since thats a great quest. so kill whatever pops at that bloody cube floor spot.

also... cubert and placeholders are about lvl 7 ish. I used the entrance by bank bridge. and the cubert is right there and the guy that takes the dress is top side :) very easy.

Closed from South Q?
# Dec 16 2002 at 6:44 PM Rating: Decent
Last night I tried to get to the Catacombs from South Qeynos. I found the entrances by the Bank, Magicians Guild and the docks were all closed off. I could only get there from North Q through the hidden entrance by the gate. Anyone else have this experience? Also 4 Specs against 1 cleric = 1 dead cleric... :(

I decided I would try soloing the spectres here. So I found the entrance in the warrior guild and forged afeah. I ran into some guard type guy (light blue to me) that dropped some vendor trash (I never saw the guy until he hit me). Then I turn the corner and I start getting hit with DD spells and I can't see any mobs (it was Chan and Chou Whinstone and they may have invis). So I make a beeline for the zone and I get hit by at least 4 nukes and I drop. My point is that if you think you will be able to zone in and pull spectres here do not go through the warrior guild entrance even thogh it looks like the closest and easiest on the maps.
RE: Spectres
# Jan 25 2003 at 12:32 PM Rating: Decent
The lb guy was Argyn Shieldstan and you didnt see him because someone pulled him to the zone - and your entry point is a few feet into the zone so he was behind your back ...
Chan and Chou Whinstone are behind the wall near the Necro Guild Chamber and vendors. They attack when you come into sight of any NPC that's walking the tunnels - and there is a skellie in a corner that probably picked you up and then they attacked through the wall. Grrr - they dropped me once too ...
For soloing spectres it would probably be best to enter through the secret entrance outside the Qeynos walls. You have a clear way until you enter Blood Sabre County. The spectres are the first you meet after a few twists and some sort of hall. At the end of that hall they wait for you. harmony or lull would be nice to single pull them... Haven't tried it yet with my bard. I think i'll wait for a few more levels before i do...
# Sep 16 2002 at 6:33 PM Rating: Decent
Really mixed messages on this board.

I too entered the aquaducts in front of the bank and followed the "this way" signs looking for the little girl. I'm a level 40 druid with a fishscale earring... or I was until two spectres took me out before I even knew what was happening. Cross your fingers I don't lose my corpse, I just started upgrading my equipment!

Maybe they leave low levels alone?
RE: Ouch
# Oct 18 2002 at 3:30 PM Rating: Decent
Nope, they'll eat low levels just the same as high level characters. The only way the spectres leave you alone is if you happen to be in good with the temple of Bertoxxulous, as the spectres are on Bloodsaber faction.

Please help me, I drowned as I was entering the aqueducts. I had entered through the well by the Crow's Nest, and was in the Aqueducts zone. I don't know how to recover the corpse. I tried to enter the same way, but my air was going down fast. Since she is a level 10 with some decent armor, I really want to recover the corpse. How do you loot the corpse under water without drowning again? Can I drag it somehow? I know that there is supposed to be an entrance outside the gate, but I can't find it. I would try to summon it, if I could get close enough. Please let me know what I can do, as I won't play either of my characters until I recover it. Is there a forum for those going through Everquest withdrawal?

Ask a 20+ mage for a waterstone, or a 12+ enchanter for enduring breath. this will allow you to loot and get out with no worries. If you're on the Rallos server, send Zoxxin a tell, he'll help you out.

Type /corpse while near your corpse to move it to the spot where you currently are. You can type /corpse over and over while moving to 'drag' your corpse somewhere you'll have an easier time looting it. You can only drag within the zone though, so don't bother trying to drag it back out of the zone.
RE: drowned cleric
# Dec 19 2002 at 7:06 AM Rating: Decent
what he did not mention was target corpse first then type /corpse range is limited to 50 feet per drag or typing Speed-O method Hot Key the /corpse command then stand on it as you move
or go SHIFT + UP ARROW last command automatically reappears in dialog box release keys hit enter -- repeat. I find the first method the easiest, watch your chat window as long as it is working it will "summoning ------ corpse"

For bertox worshippers you can start adventuring in here at level one with the sewer rats and spiders. You can stay here through level 18 or so.

Why go anywhere else? You get a 20% exp bonus in this zone!!!!

A pot for Cazic-Thule = key to someplace?
# Apr 04 2002 at 1:45 PM Rating: Decent
Hello all. I wandered into the room with the sewer sentries and noticed a spiffy looking pot behind them, now I had accidentally clicked on it and it said "It's locked and you're not holding the key." Hmm... where could this possibly take me? Anyone have any ideas as to what this is and where it takes someone?
RE: A pot for Cazic-Thule = key to someplace?
# May 15 2002 at 9:44 AM Rating: Decent
I think its part of the old Combine empire teleport system located in the Ocean of Tears. Its now working again (as of May 10 2002) and this must be the teleport point for Qeynos.

Note that the system is only one way - so you can't go from here to the Ocean of Tears.

Do you mean Timorous Deep? Or is there a second teleport room over in the OOT?

In Timorous Deep, the room is at neg12000, pos4300. And there is no pot to get to Qeynos. Halas Pot is the closest...

The firepot room in TD is PART of the combine travel pot system. The pots in cities all say you need a key to use them. The problem is, nobody has found the key, if one exists, or they are being very closed mothed about what it is.

I did see a post one time where a guy claimed to have a key, but did not post what it was. Hopefully, one day, this will be solved.

I have all my carters bound in the firepot room in Timourous Deep. It's just AMAZINGLY conveinent.

If there's ever a time to unconver the secerts of the lost Combine transit system, I am guess the realese of PoP might be it...

It does seem that the Druid Taxi service gets a bit more nerfed with every expansion. And why is it you always hear lots of Druids offering to port for pay, but not Wizards? Is it because Wizards don't port to as many places?

It is a Bug, and they don't zone. They just "poof", as does my poor necro pet when he chases them down there...

I've lost many a pet that way.

I have hunted the area you speak of, what often happens is if you dont kill the mob quick enough they take to the water and are promptly gobbled up by the parahana (sp?) making them disappear from your target window giving the appearance of them zoning.

My solution for this is based on character being played.

For melee types pull creatures farther away from the one spot they go into the water, giving you more time to kill before they make their *escape*.

For most casters depends on your available spell mix. Some form of root or enduring breath on your pet allowing it to take chase underwater should solve your problem leaving you to take to the water only to see what goodies it dropped.

Well love, I went down there on my own this week and went from the north part to the south without any trouble. Its the east bit near the temple of Bertoxxulous that's very risky.

As a 13th level Wizard there was nothing to trouble me. I guess a 10th level char could solo ok, and maybe a group of 6-8th level chars could have fun, if you don't mind snakes, rats and bugs.

Hope this helps, Bulases. xx

Mobs are pretty light around the entrance in the pool near the bank. Plus that Cubert thing is reputed to be around there for some quest. Don't try going in at night though otherwise you'll lose sight of the hole and drown as I did...
