    I would really like to reach the end of sanctuary--alive. According to stratics there are sanctuary caves which have less dangerous spawn and look like they go to the village, but I cannot find them. Anyone know how to access this area or if it even exists?

    I usually carry potions and precast invis. So run a ways in, invis when there is a bunch of spawn on you...unfortunately there is a server line so halfway thru the area you are guaranteed to get everything on the screen on you. If you have a bad conn it's not a fun area to try to get through. Anyways, precast invis, run halfway in, invis. Use a potion and cast invis again, run to the ladders, invis if you need to again, before you get there. Same deal going out.

    Dunno about the caves, I never researched that bit.

    The "caves" are one tile Holes in the ground... If you've been to the Solen Caves insted of a 2x2 hole it's simply 1 tile thats mostly black with a little rubble around it. The easiest way is to just RUN for all your worth down the main path and don't get stuck in a Dead end ( I only use the caves on the way OUT of sanctuary never on the way in).... There's enough monster that have spellcasting as well as archers that if you don't have magic resist or a combat skill to defend yourself you probably won't make it...

    There is a cave system and I went down there briefly with a stealther. I didn't explore it all that much, however, but I know it is there. Right now, I forget where I entered it. I know I ran in a short distance and went off the beaten path. It was an opening in the ruined building to the west, I believe.

    I have stealthed from the entrance to the end of Sanctuary without dying, on a terrible connection, just re-casting Invisibility every time I was revealed. However, I have had a lot of practice stealthing (I can lap Khaldun several times without dying on a character without armour or combat skills, for instance) and there were a few times where I had to run for my life - Sanctuary is probably one of the hardest places to stealth your way through (it's times like this when you realise that stealth is one of the few skills that actually requires the player to be skilled too.) It can be done, though.

    Not hard at all..

    Come to Formosa, I will show you how to run from the cave entrance to the village

    I will be on foot without casting invisible spell or smoke bomb as well.

    Its just way too easy to do this.

    Fighting 1 v 10 is much harder than this in my opinion.

    i am down there all the time on my necro / mage /weaver

    i chain strongbox quests which give some serious weapons, jewelry and talis.

    i rarely die, but invis is your friend. when you enter sanct on the right where mogur is you'll see a door that drops you into the rat tunnels. this is safer
    than above but as the op stated look out for the spike traps as they kill.

    invis and cast ev's to help get you around the tough spots. im on chessy and never see anyone down there so when you first arrive the spawn is at the maximum. if i have a level 6 focus, casting gift of renewal and go wraith form i can wither much of the spawn down without dieing. cast protection as well.

    when you get to the back end of the dungeon it helps to pull as much of the spawn to the fence. once on the other side of the fence wait there and let the spawn build up. it sorta looks like a cyclopian union hall meeting.

    anyway if you invis to break target and jump the fence it gets alot of the nasty casters off u.

    lagging up is not ur friend down there so if your connection is sour i'd say its a no go.

    best of luck. if your on chessy i can help you. pm me.

    like stated above, i just run all the way...if on a mage precast heal and jam down...at the server line that's where its a pain, get ready to try to weave through the rats ect...then just keep on going. Even on my stealther i don't stealth i just run all the way. I also chain this strongbox, after you do it a few times you get it down pretty fast. My necro takes me about 5 minutes a run, on my stealth archer takes about 8-10. sorry end rant

    Not really too much to see in the caves below the sanctuary anyway. Mostly ratmen (mages, archers, etc). Only two reasons to visit would really be to kill the named ratman mage for the chain quest or as a GREAT place to harvest arrows from the archers. All in all, there is unfortunately not too much to do in the Sanctuary period. That is, save a few quests and the summon fiend spellweaving spell. I would like to see them expand on this dungeon more but strongly doubt it will occur.
