Quests The Forgotten Tower (entrance)

Here, things a a little less frantic compared to the Dark Wood due to there being less obstacles (trees) and more open space. Monsters from here on also begin to get a little stronger as well. In the Black Marsh you will find the ruined walls of the Forgotten Tower. The tower itself is gone, but the entrance to its deep cellar remains. Another cave sub-level and a junction to the Tamoe Highland are also found within the marsh.

The tower's cellar is the biggest crypt-style area in the game (especially in hell difficulty) due to containing five levels. Explore the depths of the tower cellar in order to complete the fourth quest of Act I: The Forgotten Tower.
