    I wrote a rather lengthy illustrated guide in Word for my guildmates on how to get their human and elf characters though the Abyss and into Ter Mur.

    It's definitely full of spoilers, so please read no further if you wish to be surprised and figure out the process yourself.

    I apologize this will be rather blurry, but I don't have any other way to post it, at the moment.

    Have fun exploring!

    WOW -- you did all that by yourself Tina!? Amazing and Outstanding! I do not think a big Rel Sanct is good enough! Yes, it is very hard to read and hopefully this can get posted some place so that people can take advantage of your intricate and awesome work!

    If you're using Internet Explorer, don't forget there's a magnifying glass tool in the lower right corner that lets you zoom in. Might help you see things just a bit better.

    Yes, once you get through the Abyss and Tomb of Kings, you can mark runes in Ter Mur and cast gates from there back to "the other side." You can recall to Ter Mur using a rune marked there. Haven't tested it in a great while, but I believe you cannot mark runes or cast gates while inside the Underworld, the Tomb of Kings, or in the Abyss.

    If you make a gargoyle character, there is a quest "chain" you can do from the Ter Mur side to allow your character to use the Tomb of Kings to enter the Abyss and travel through to the Underworld and out into Trammel. You have to talk to the Seer NPC south of the Tomb of Kings; kill some creatures; visit the museum; find the Shrine of Singularity, say a mantra, and pass a test regarding information you learned at the museum. Only after you do those things can you pass the Guardians in the Tomb of Kings and enter the Abyss.

    The acid slugs drop three unusual things as loot. Keep killing them until you find a particular item that works and then get one more to use on the second set of vines. Garamon will give you hints if you say the right things to him.

    You can use either client. I made the screen shots in the guide using the Enhanced client.

    You can get to Ter Mur using runes that someone else has marked. I believe there will also be public moongate access at some point, but it isn't operational yet.

    It can get very laggy when you're in the pit with the slugs. I always try to stand on the sloping sides of the pit and avoid walking among the slugs unless I really can't help it. You could potentially have your strongest character kill slugs until you have 2 for each of your characters that you know will actually have a reason to visit the Abyss. Then they just have to be able to run run run and also be able to participate in killing Tyball's shade. They may not get the cloak as a drop, but I was able to finish getting the triumverate keys in the beta with one of my characters just doing part of the damage.

    I plan to have all my characters that are capable of killing monsters do the quest and maybe some of my crafters that have tinkering skill. I need to brush up on Sutek's quest before I decide about taking my crafters into the Abyss. If I had a thief to use for stealing artifacts, I'd also be thinking about running them through the quest to enter the Abyss.

    I'm not sure, Ender. With all the wipes we had in test, I never had a character last long enough to die more than once in the Abyss to find out.

    So... the shade... does it REALLY take like 5000 years to respawn, and does it REALLY have the yellow key, one per shade?

    Re: [SPOILER ALERT!] Illustrated Guide for Human/Elf Transit Thru The Abyss to Ter Mu

    Some of us in the beta test had started to assemble something showing the mini-champ areas and tentatively came up with the areas on the maps below. The numbers in green were other areas of interest:

    #1 is the Silver Sapling room

    #2 is the entrance to one of the Fel rule-set champ spawns.

    #3 is the Medusa peerless area.

    #4 is the Stygian Dragon peerless area.

    #5 is the Cavern of the Discarded.

    #6 is where you will find Sutek.

    #7 is the entrance to the other Fel rule-set champ spawn.

    The three question marks may be special housing areas. (See the Pub. 60 notes.)

    Note that these maps are from the weekend and I believe there may be at least two new bridges in the Abyss that do not show on these maps.

    So, what about if we used morphing tokens on people in britannia already.

    How do we get those gargoyles to Ter Mur?

    complete the same quest?



    getting the ones that start in TerMur aint so bad....

    Re: [SPOILER ALERT!] Illustrated Guide for Human/Elf Transit Thru The Abyss to Ter Mu

    I believe the entrance at location #2 takes you to the Primeval Liche champ spawn and the entrance at location #7 takes you to the Abyssal Inferno champ spawn. I think access to the champ spawns from Fel is through the Hythloth and Deceit dungeons.

    These are the descriptions of the two champs from the Publish 60 notes:

    well all I can say is EA dropped the effin ball with this expansion.

    I paid 30$ (waste), morphed my two mains into gargoyles then.....

    made a gargoyle, cant get to Britannia because the quest is too rough for a new character
    .....cant get my humans gone gargoyle over to ter mer because theyre naked.

    and even if I do, my new gargoyle is stranded for awhile til I can get him out of ter mur. Hes supposed to be my new crafter.

    Theres a moon gate right outside the royal city. You cant use it.

    and, most of the crap ive encountered is too hard to fight with a new warrior anyways.

    its pretty stupid. Tons of high end human/elves are all over ter mur waltzing through no problem, while the newb gargoyles are relatively hosed

    RedWizard, which shard are you? I'll be happy to come and gate you out and mark you whatever runes you might need so you can go back to Ter Mur when you're ready.

    Explore a little and wait a little there people who made the cross to the other side and mark runes.You will get to the othe side soon !
    Moongates will open up to the other side soon too. Have a little patience.


    I know i will mark runes and drop them around Banks as soon i get a chance on Drachenfels and Napa! :)

    Re: [SPOILER ALERT!] Illustrated Guide for Human/Elf Transit Thru The Abyss to Ter Mu

    bah.

    humans/elves barreled thru effortlessly (I know because I tried it), and entered Ter Mur.

    its a flood of humans/elves taming crap to go back and sell to people rofl.

    The marked rune thing is convenient sure, but also makes it slightly less fun since you just track down a human or elf who made it through, and then you play the warping game and set yourself up with runes for your runebook :(

    it still seems like any new players who freshly start playing UO with SA and choose to begin as a gargoyle are totally screwed. There is no real simple/straightforward way to level your skills up in Ter Mur. New players are doomed.

    They should have made the Ter Mur ---> Britannia trek a bit easier, and made it so you can't enter Ter Mur unless youve completed a quest.

    but thats just my opinion on it.




    I made it through finally. If you dont use throwing, youll never survive. That is the only real safe way. Skill up throwing to around 70, and ninja your way through the quest chain.

    A group from my guild and I did this tonight and it was a BLAST! Thanks so much for the time you put into this!

    Only thing I would add... and perhaps we're just dorks... but after you get the third key... you click it.. we had NO CLUE where to go. It was just a matter of.... well... something is that way... look... a sparkly gate... lets go there... so yeah. Maybe an addition that after you get the key... go back out and to the west of the entrance to Ankh room.

    OH and that Shade guy drops pottery shards... and something else. An ancient scroll... just FYI.

    Now if we could just get the farmers who are camping there and not letting people get the yellow key to stop... it'd be GREAT!

    THANKS AGAIN FOR THE AWESOME GUIDE!!!
