Zone Information

The Blighted Ruins are where Skeleton and Ghoul characters start. Unlike most zones you start at the bottom and must work your way to the top.

On the bottom (first) level, you begin in a chamber in a static layout section in the north. You awaken in a flawed magic circle, and turn upon your creator (a low-level Necromancer). He drops a special plot artifact, the Cloak of Deception, which will allow you to pass for human after leaving the zone.

The levels (apart from the entry room) have a dungeon-type layout, mostly dark corridors and rectangular rooms, and are filled with rats and skeletons. Vaults are possible: circle, amon sul, rat nest, and skeleton mage cabal.

On the top (final) level, there is a Half-Finished Bone Giant, also the work of your (now deceased) creator. This monster can be quite challenging, as you are likely to be only level 3 at the time. You may leave the level without killing the monster, if necessary.

Once you leave, you cannot return to this zone. You will end up on the world map in the southeastern part of Maj'Eyal, close to Last Hope.
