Areas

Locathah can be entered through a transition in the northeast of the boat ramp area, reachable by following the west road through the wilderness. Beware of thieving pixies in the wilderness.

Sulfurous Current

Sulfurous Lobster and Trench Devourer are healed by fire. Sulfurous Lobster do a lot of fire kickback if are hit with fire. Sometimes Locathah Scalecaster spawn, they cast implode and other nasty spells.

In the middle, a mini boss can spawn, "Aspect of Panzuriel", that drops a Spiny Fish. There is a huge mini boss at the end that is a Trench Devourer, "Sh'klss, the Sulfurous Maw" (Tumble check DC: 105 vs knockdown). At the end a set Mote can be found.

Behind the left side waits the Matron in a large hall.

  • She re-summons any Locathah from her spawn that were killed. Unless the party has high killing power, it is best to disable her minions through petrification or Bigby 7/9 rather than killing them.
  • Non-Locathah mobs, such as Whirlpools, Spiritual Currents etc., are not resummoned and should be killed right away.
  • She is immune to direct spells of level 7 and below although can be damaged by some persistent AoE spells.

Strategy and Tactics

Death spells can remove most of the mobs in this area, Circle of Death, Finger of Death and Wail of the Banshee being very effective, bring a PM they'll have a great time! The Sulfurous Current area has lots of mini volcanoes which give fire and acid damage if you stand too close to them this can cause problems if you're not equipped with appropriate gear.
