Marvin's Magic Superstore

Marvin is a shopkeeper located inside the Labyrinth. He sells magical items, potions, and scrolls not available elsewhere, and hideously inflated prices. You can kill Marvin by cursing him to start the fight, but wait until you're done with your shopping to take your vengeance. Alas, he doesn't drop your gold when he dies.

Directions to Marvin's Superstore:
Drune, 1 up, 17 left from the teleporter, in Bloodwood.

  • From Entrance: 2L, take the stairs.
  • Follow the dungeon as it winds Left and Up until you come to the second staircase (the one with a torch on the screen). Take the stairs.
  • Follow the dungeon to the right until you can go no further and then go 2U to the room with the torch.
  • Go 1L and take the stairs.
  • Go 1R and pull the lever.
  • Pull the lever in the room you just appeared in.
  • Go 1D and pull the lever.
  • Go 1U and 1R, pull the lever.
  • Pull the lever in the room you just appeared in.
  • Go 1U and say hello to Marvin.

Dragon Pit

Dragon Pit is the most difficult cave in the game. Here's how to run it and (mostly) survive. Special thanks to LilBitSassy, Seacrystal, SOB, WizardOfAhhs, and Pail for help with some of the various tips and strategies.

Dragon Pit is located in Fafnir's Swamp, 9 up and 15 right from the Wen teleporter. It is divided into three sections which are really complete caves of their own: the Hatchery, the Library, and the Maze/Fafnir's Lair (not to be confused with the aboveground Maze area, just north of Forest of Death). Each section has one or more "named" or "boss" dragons at the end, that can drop the coveted Dragon Pit gear.

Dragon Pit Map
Here's a map. (Click to download a larger version, or right-click and save for the compact version.) Note that the Maze section wraps around on itself, that is, going up from the top row takes you back to the bottom row, and going right from the far right row takes you back to the far left row. Also note that yes, there really is a fight on almost every screen. Four squares in you come to a crossroads. Going to the left takes you to the Library, the right takes you to the Hatchery, and straight up takes you to the Maze and then to Fafnir.

Most, if not all of your group should be 1k for DP, and any toon under 750 really has no business even trying. Some people do HoZ parts of the cave, but this is extremely chancy and requires a friend or an alt that isn't grouped following you around to pick up what you drop when you die. Since this is a guide to surviving Dragon Pit, I'm only going to cover group hunting, and the kind of group that can finish the entire cave. This is the makeup of the group I run DP with, that works very well. You don't have to follow it to the letter, but whatever toons you use should be similar. All toons should have RoDs or RoPs if possible, as well as any other DP gear that's available. If the warriors don't have a BPoB, then a PoI is advisable.

First: ASGW, wearing a Ranger/HoP/HoK, using a BC or an IC.
Second: AEGW, with a Ranger/Hop/HoK and also a Magical Helm like Marvin sells. Weapon should be a BC or IC and a Fafnir's Fang. (I'll explain the reason for the Marvin helm and the dagger shortly.)
ASGW, wearing a Ranger/HoP/HoK, using a BC or an IC.
ASGW, wearing a Ranger/HoP/HoK, using a BC or an IC, or an ASGT in a Ranger/HoP/HoK, with a Duach's Thorn. (The ASGT could also lead.)
Fifth: Elf warrior, wearing a Ranger/HoP/HoK, mythril plate (not a PoI), using a Wrath, Odin's Edge, or a Gram.
Sixth: AIEW, with a Mage Hat (preferable) or an HoS.

As many toons as possible should have EB, and it's an absolute requirement for the caster toons in fifth and sixth position.

The Library is the easiest section by far. It can be done with only 2 giant hitters and 1 wizzie to keep them invulled and healed. Moin and Goin are the end fights here, they are large blue Storm Dragons with health in the 90k to 110k range. They cast a pretty wicked Electric Fury, but they aren't grouped. Just tank them, stay invulled, and make sure no one's missing a Lightning Shield chant, and you'll be fine. The Library is known to drop Rings of Power and Rings of Destruction, Amulets of Adventure, and occasionally mage or warrior armor. It is also the only location known to currently drop the spells Mabon's Forced Flee and Despothes' Wrath, but these are extremely rare finds.

The Hatchery is considerably harder than the Library. There are four end fights here, each one a different kind of Dragon Brood Mother, with a group of Hatchlings. The easiest of the four is Svafnir, the Swamp Brood Mother. She's located 1 down once you enter the Hatchery proper. Before starting the fight, the toon in second should put on the Marvin helm and equip the Faf Fang. The helm causes you to take 50% less melee damage, but it also makes you miss 50% of the time, and has a heavy cast resist. So the toon wearing it won't be doing much damage, but that's fine, they are there to keep the heavy hitter dragons off the rest of the group. The Faf Fang is used because it has a 1 square range, and this pushes the dragon back, away from the rest of the group. So, cast defenselessness on Svafnir to start the fight, then first round everyone tries to freeze a hatchling. (The Brood Mothers themselves cannot be frozen.) Second round the AEGW in second starts in on Svafnir, while the rest of the group takes out the hatchlings one by one. Once Svafnir is pushed well away from the rest of the group the AEGW should switch back to his or her BC, and once the hatchlings are finished, then he or she should switch helms, too. Swamp dragons cast Poison Bolt, so an EB may or may not be needed at some point.

Next up, and next easiest is Ofnir and her swarm of Moor Hatchlings, on the right side of the Hatchery. The strategy here is exactly the same as for Svafnir. Moor dragons don't cast, but they hit harder than Swamps, and have natural immo as well as a poisoned bite.

Next is Grabak, the Bog Brood Mother, in the top room of the Hatchery. She can (and will) cast Acid Rain for up to 9k damage, so if your wizzie is using an Uruz, or anyone is wearing a HoD, now's the time to take it off. The strategy here is mostly the same, except you will be EBing often.

Grafvollud, to the left, is the most difficult of the dragon mamas because of the Earthquakes she and her kiddies cast. EQ is especially nasty because not only does it do massive damage, it can stun you for up to 3 rounds and fumble your weapon. The plan here is for 5 toons to attempt to freeze the hatchlings, while one of the giants (either 1st, 3rd, or 4th) EBs first round. Second round and beyond, the AEGW pushes Grafvollud back while the rest attack, but the wizzie should be EBing every round, and the second caster should be watching closely to take over EB duties for a round or two if the wizzie gets stunned. If both casters are stunned, then one of the giants needs to do it.

The Hatchery drops both mage and warrior armor. It does not drop any of the DP weapons, or the level 500 required items (like the Shield of Infinite Thought), those are Fafnir only drops.

The shortest route through the Maze to Fafnir's Lair is 3 up and 3 right from the lever that's marked green on the map. In the square with that lever is an NPC named Old Man. He sells scrolls, potions, and mana at prices that would make even Marvin blush, but he's a good place to repair your gear if you're doing more than one section. On the way to Fafnir, through the Maze are a couple of smallish dragon fights, 2 groups of NPC Thieves with insane hp and weilding Mist weapons, and a really annoying fight consisting of 12 Slimes and Sludges. Mass zerk both the Thieves and the goo, and don't let the latter box in any of your group.

Once you're past the lever marked yellow on the map and into the straight run up to Fafnir, it's all dragons. When you start seeing 3 or more large dragons on the screen the strategy is for your wizzie to freeze one, while everyone else tries to freeze one of the others - the same one. The worst potential hazard is about 3 screens away from the Lair, and it is 4 Legendary Mire Dragons. Treat them like you did Grafvollud and her brats, by EBing every round. There's no need for the AEGW to switch to the dagger and Magical Helm however, until Fafnir.

Fafnir is a Swamp dragon, with up to 190k health. He has 2 Dragon Guardians grouped with him, who are Bog dragons with roughly 100k health each. Fafnir cannot be frozen, however the Guardians can, so first round the wizzie tries to freeze one, the secondary caster and 2 of the giants try to freeze the other, one giant EBs, and the AEGW in the hot seat prepares to get smacked around a whole lot. If both freezes take, you're in great shape. The wizzie should refreeze the Guardian the secondary caster and the giants froze first round, while the secondary caster EBs, the AEGW changes weapons and hat, and the other 3 giants start in on Fafnir. (If Fafnir casts first and second round instead of attacking, the giants should guard. Don't go to him.) The refreeze may or may not take second round, if it doesn't, the wizzie should keep trying while the backup caster keeps EBing. Yes, EB every round. The Guardians may be frozen, but they can still do 15-20k damage if they both Acid Rain at the same time.

If one of the Guardians doesn't freeze, all is not lost. The AEGW needs to push that Guard back and away from the group while everyone else works on Fafnir. If neither Guardian freezes, you're toast. If the entire group dies, Fafnir will always go for the item on the floor with the highest shop food value first, and he seldom ever redrops what he picks up. So, here's a tip to save your HoK: Each toon in the group should be carrying a bottle of 100k hair dye. (Those are the regular colors.) First toon to bite the dust should drop their bottle of dye, then whichever toon that doesn't die last, and has the fastest connection, should bring up the Alt-T treasure window and get ready to click. As each toon dies you will see what they've dropped in that window, but you won't be able to pick it up until everyone is out of the cloud. Once the last toon falls out, right-click (do not left-click and click take, that's too slow, so is "take all") on the items you want to save, starting with the helms, if any. Ignore any 1k stacks, they aren't worth it. Fafnir will go for the dye first, buying you some time, but he's still quick, so you have to be quicker. More than one person can and should be grabbing for what drops, don't worry if it's yours or not, just grab what you can and give it to the proper owner once everything is picked up.

Remember to keep yourself invulled, and your AEGW too, because they won't be able to reliably do it themselves as long as they're wearing the Marvin hat

Good luck!

Gearing Up Your Toon

There is no single best weapon or item of armor in the game. What works best varies by toon race, class, level, and personal preference. (As well as how much gold you have to spend.) Having said that, here's some recommendations. (Keep in mind, enchants affect the wearer, perms affect the item.) Strength (Empower) and dexterity (Nimbility) should be enchanted on to every single item you can wear or equip (except for weapons, which are a special case I'll discuss later). The first str/dex item (natural or enchanted) adds 3 points to your base str/dex, the second adds 2, the third adds 1, and the fourth and beyond add 1/2 a point each. Regeneration doesn't stack in the same manner as str/dex, but for the maximum benefit, you need it on at least 5 items. Immolation and the 6 shields (poison, fire, cold, lightning, acid, and missile resistance) only need to be on 1 item each. Each chant or perm increases the repair costs of an item, so it's best to put shields and immo onto items that don't take melee damage and never need repair.

Backpacks - All toons need one, and a plain leather backpack is fine. Finvarra's Backpack is a nice fashion accessory for those who want it, and can afford it, but it offers no real benefit that a plain one doesn't. (It can hold more, but it doesn't lessen the weight of what's inside.) The color of your backpack determines the secondary color of your helm. That is, the color of the band or plume. The standard suite of chants for a backpack are str, dex, regen, immo, and a shield. (I prefer poison shield on backpacks, as it's the most important one, and you can't lose an equipped backpack even if you die in battle.) Backpacks can't be stolen from, so keep all your gold and your spare mana in it. Items you pick up will automatically go into an equipped backpack.

Skirts and Robes - There are no magical versions (that work), and they don't add anything to your armor rating, so cloth is the way to go for all toons. (Robes only come in cloth versions, while skirts are also sold in leather and troll leather.) Robes are for male toons, skirts are for females. Skirts come in both long and short, which style you pick is entirely a fashion choice. (Dedicated PvP'ers say that short skirts are preferable, because they're slightly lighter, but if you're hardcore enough to be concerned about that, you've been playing long enough not to need my advice on armor.) The standard set of enchants for a skirt/robe is str, dex, regen, and 2 shields of your choice. Robes and skirts are good for shields and for 5x'ing, because they're very cheap, and they take no melee damage. They say they have 10% AR, but they lie, they don't add anything to your overall armor rating, so don't waste a chant slot on Improve Armor.

Belts - There are 4 different magical belts in the game, Belt of Strength, Belt of Carrying, Finvarra's Belt, and Girdle of Might. (There are also cursed belts, the Belt of Weakness and Belt of Load, but obviously, you don't want those.) For a new toon you want at least a Belt of Carrying as soon as possible, as they reduce your overall encumbrance (which is how much you can carry before losing attacks or slowing down your movement rate and casting speed) by 150%. A Belt of Strength has a natural str chant, and it's better than nothing, but still, get yourself a BoC ASAP. Finvarra's Belt is a BoS and a BoC combined, and is the best choice for nearly every toon, no matter what level, however they're more expensive than BoCs, and even some toons that can afford them prefer nnot to wear them at very low levels when the risk of dying is highest. A Girdle of Might is a high-end item, that has a level 300 requirement, adds str, endurance, and regeneration, lessens encumbrance, adds Mysticism resistance and helps prevent your weapon from being fumbled. It can only be worn by warriors, and is quite expensive. The standard set of chants for any belt is str/dex, regen and/or a shield is optional.

Baldrics - Some baldrics are earned when you reach a certain level, some are purely fashion choices and drop from monsters (jade and aqua), some are purely fashion choices that are prizes given in event games (white, pink, purple, violet, and rarely teal) some can be bought in taverns to show your allegience to the Realm gods, some drop from monsters and have natural str (Sash of Finvarra and the tan Maze Master's baldric) and some no longer drop or are given out (the yellow Maze Master's baldric and the Thistlebark Sash). For hunting purposes most people prefer the easily available Fin Sash, as it has natural strength, but you can wear a different one if you just prefer the color. Baldrics take the same chants as belts, str/dex, regen, and 1 or 2 shields.

Bracers - Finvarra's Bracers are the first choice for every toon. They add a dodge, and a degree of protection from Death Wish and Death Touch. Bracers of Defense are the second choice, they add a dodge, but no death magic protection. Bracers of Battle are a high end item that drops only in Dragon Pit (like the Girdle of Might), and if you can get them, you probably don't need my fashion advice. Never wear Bracers of Density, they are too heavy and have relatively low AR. Bracers should be permed with Improve Armor, and chanted with str/dex. Regen is optional.

Cowl - There are 4 magical cowls in the game. Finvarra's Cowl and the Thuriasz Cowl are essentially the same, except for color (fin black vs. red with a glowie gold edge). The T-Cowl has 5% more AR and can't be dyed. The Cowl of Density is junk, you don't want one. Dragon Pit offers the Cowl of Immortaility, which has wondrous stats, but by the time you can afford one, again, you won't need armor advice. Before you can acquire a Fin or T-Cowl, the best choice for Elf Wizards, Thieves, and Adventurers is Troll Leather. For all other toons the starter cowl of choice is Obsidianate, because it has the same armor rating as Admantium, with a lower weight. Cowls are normally permed with Improve Armor, and chanted with str/dex, and optionally regen.

Body Armor - There are quite a few magical chestplates in the game, of which only one is usually worn, and that is the Plate of Invulnerability. It provides a very high armor rating, but it's quite heavy, and is best suited for giants. It is also notoriously expensive to repair, so many hitter toons wear Mythril Plate instead, and save the PoI for hunting monsters that hit extremely hard, like dragons. (Later on hitters might invest in a Breastplate of Battle, which has a natural strength chant, but like all items found only in Dragon Pit, is rather spendy.) Elf Wizards and Thieves are better off starting with a Troll Leather doublet or tunic. At higher levels they may switch to chanted cloth, or they might upgrade to an Arch Mage's Shirt, which adds to intelligence, endurance, and casting power, and gives some magic resists, however the AMS is very, very spendy. Humans and Orcs of any class can wear Mythril, as they have more strength. Chest armor should be permed with Improve Armor, and chanted with str/dex, and optional regen.

Leg Armor - The only magical leg armor in the game comes from Dragon Pit, except for those icky Greaves of Density . All hitter toons and Humans, Giants, and Orcs of any class should wear Mythril Greaves. (The DP upgrade is Greaves of Fortitude, which add endurance.) Elf Wizards and Thieves start with Troll Leather and may choose to switch to cloth later, same as chest armor. (Their DP upgrade is Arch Mage's Pants, which have the same attributes and price tag as the shirt.) Pants get the same chants as chest armor.

Boots - The least expensive and easiest to obtain starter footwear are either Boots of Nimbleness or Finvarra's Shoes. Both have natural dexterity, and Fin Shoes also have a natural fire and cold shield. A step up from these are Finvarra's Boots, which have the same attributes as the shoes, with a higher armor rating. (Also, most people seem to prefer the appearance of boots over low shoes.) There is a DP upgrade, Boots of Evasion, that give an extra dodge per combat round as well as the natural dexterity chant, but they are the least popular of the DP items, because they are shoes, and not boots. (Despite the name) Footwear takes the same chants as chest and leg armor.

Jewelry - Most warriors and adventurers of any race will want an Amulet of Combat, which gives an extra attack per round, and 2 Rings of Endurance, although some adventurers and Elf warriors may prefer 1 RoE and 1 Ring of Intelligence, to increase their Mysticism spell durations. Wizards generally carry 2 sets of jewelry, an Amulet of Endurance and 2 RoEs for hunting, especially at lower levels, and an Amulet of Intelligence and 2 RoIs for enchanting and for hunting in areas where the extra spell oomph is more vaulable than the extra hit points. Thieves often wear an AoC and the split RoE/RoI combo, but this varies according to personal preference. Some may go with 2 RoEs instead. The DP upgrades for jewelry are the Ring of Destruction (adds strength, endurance, and some magic resistance) for hitters and sometimes Thieves, the Ring of Power (adds intelligence, boosts spell power, and gives some magic resistance) for casters (and sometimes Thieves) and the Amulet of Adventure, which is for adventurers only, adds strength, endurance, and intelligence, gives some magic resistance and an extra attack per round, has natural regeneration, and you don't even have to eat while wearing one. Wow. (Need I mention that it is very expensive to buy?) Jewelry should have str/dex and regen chanted on it, and is an excellent place for any shields that you haven't put on your skirt, robe, or baldric.

Shields - Shield skill was only recently implemented. Most toons who wield a one-handed weapon are going for either a Mythril Round Shield or a Mythril Tower Shield. The jury is still out on which is really best. The DP upgrade is the Shield of Infinite Thought, which adds intelligence, spell power, and magic resistance for Wizards, but beware if you use one - shields have been known to suddenly shatter in combat. Shields should be permed with Improve Armor, and chanted with str/dex and regen.

I'll go into helm and weapon recommendations in seperate posts.
