      Reflections: A guide to Mirror Lake

      Mirror Lake is the final instanced Zafaria. It is accessed through Baobab Crossroads, once you have completed the Elephant Graveyard and a few talk-to quests.

      Your quest for this dungeon will tell you to "Defeat Morganthe"! Very exciting stuff... unfortunately I'll tell you know, lest you get your hopes up and start scrolling down to see what the fight with her is like, that in reality you are simply talking with her, refusing to turn over to the dark side, and then fending off plenty of her minions.


      Upon entering the dungeon, you see a familiar face who claims to be stronger now..... but for some reason even though he thinks that, he doesn't cheat anymore.


      Tse-Tse's health, along with his minions.


      After defeating him, you follow Morganthe up to the Shining Mountain. She recognizes your power - apparently upon reflection, you remind her a little of herself during the days back at Ravenwood. She tried to convince you to join forces and take over the Spiral together.


      Unfortunately, Morganthe is not the type of woman who likes to be told "No", so when you refuse her, she calls up some spectral spirits from the mountain to try to take you down.


      Cheats:
      -The elephant spectre puts up a 90% tower shield at the beginning of the first turn. If you hit him while any of the other minions are still alive, he will replace this shield. If you use a multi-hit attack like an orthrus or hydra, the first hit will knock off the tower and the second (and third, if applicable) hits will hit the boss at full force. However, if the hits don't kill, he will put up MULTIPLE tower shields following your spell's completion - two 90% towers for minotaur or orthrus, 3 90% towers for a hydra or chimera. Rather than hitting them off, the tower can be pierced or stolen off with no consequence. If you kill all the other minions before him, he will not replace the tower after being hit.
      -At the beginning of the third round, the elephant will interrupt and a player will be 'marked' with a stun shield. They will tell you "Only charms can save you now!" Two rounds later, they will ask "Are you still marked?"
      -Consequences if you do not remove the mark:
      Two rounds after the mark was placed, if the mark has not been removed, they whole team of spectres will interrupt and cheat.
      -the gorilla will smokescreen your team
      -the lion will use orthrus
      -the zebra will super blizzard, about 800 base damage (give or take)
      -the elephant will then remove the mark and any shields on the marked person.
      The cheats will always happen in this order, regardless of what order the minions take during the fight.
      -Three rounds after asking this, the elephant will attempt to mark someone again. This process will continue (marking, checking if someone is still marked, etc) every three rounds until they are killed, or until only the elephant is left.
      -If you kill the other spectres without killing the elephant, he will mark a person and say "We can't fail!". At this point, the new mark will no longer be able to be removed, but being marked will no longer have any consequences. He will then begin cheating by interrupting at the beginning of every three rounds with a scarecrow. When he crows, he will tell you "Your pursuit ends here!" Also, if you leave the elephant for last, he will no longer re-tower after being hit.

      Strategy:

      -There are two way to deal with marking. A) You can put ice dispels on the boss, which dispels both his 90% tower shield after being hit, and his marking spell. By dispelling the mark, you dispel this cheat entirely. Or, B) you can simply put a blade on the person who is marked. Any single target blade being put on them cause the mark to be removed (along with any traps and/or shields on them at the time). The blade cannot be a pet blade or a group blade such as bladestorm, guidance, or brilliant light (exception - bladestorm, guiding light, etc, WILL work only if the person casting it is the person who is marked), and must be put on the person who is marked (ie, blades put on any other person will not remove the mark). You will want to do this as soon as possible, as you will only have one round after being marked in which to remove that mark before you are hit with the cheats. I would recommend keeping a treasure blade in your sideboard to make sure everyone can put a blade up at any time.
      -Pack pierce or steal for the 90% tower and one hit all the enemies. Traps and prisms are allowed on all of them. If you think your hit may not kill the elephant spectre, get a melt on him to prevent him from replacing his tower (or just have another steal or pierce handy).
      -Note: these bosses are stun immune.


      Following the defeat of the spectral spirits, Morganthe will do a powerful bit of magic and create a tower back to the bottom of Mirror Lake. Here you will face four Goliath bruisers. They do not cheat. These guys, though marked as bosses, are stunnable. For both this fight and the following fight with high health spiders, it's best to have everyone (save life wizards, whose healing will likely be needed here) put up blades and hit at the same time with a group attack.
      Word of caution: with these types of fights it's always best to have everyone hit at the same time. If one player hits sooner than the others, they will accumulate all of the aggro/threat on themselves - which simply means, they've ticked off the enemies and ALL the enemies will now attack that person. Unless you're looking to be the target of all the enemy attacks, use your attack spells at the same time as your teammates.



      After defeating the Bruisers, Morganthe will tell you her plan all along was to get down to this place and recover what was taken from her - her Deck of Shadows was locked here many years ago by Merle Ambrose. She manages to retreive it from it's vessel and says that her power has now increased a hundred fold!


      To show off this power increased by hundred fold, you have to face a mob of Starburst spiders (because that'll teach you). These guys have TONS of pips. However, this guys consistently give you two pixie sticks (rank 8 megas), red grapes of wrath and two golden pearls, so it's worth the effort.

      Recommendations for the fight with the spiders - this certainly isn't necessary, but will make the fight easier and faster for those of you who plan to farm this place often: you may want to go buy the bazaar and pick up the Rain Dance Mask and Bolt Trimmed Tunic. The storm enemies here hit HARD and love to critical. While wearing these will cut into your power significantly, the storm resist will be very helpful and give you the time to buff up for a bigger hit. For ice wizards, the ZF crafted gear is exceptional. For storm wizards, Pandemonium Platemail and the Eureka Coif are great options. Also for storm wizards, try investing in some treasure unstoppables and infallible auras to help cut into their resist (prism'ing each enemy takes a long time that you might rather spend blading) - these two spells in combination with each other will chop 35% off the spider's resist. All wizards may also want to put on a wand (and/or ring and athame) with a high storm critical block rating.



      After defeating the spiders, you hear loud cracking noises and feel the ground start to shake. You look around and discover that Mirror Lake... is no longer Mirror Lake. She has, indeed, broken it. Before she disappears, she leaves you with these final words of prophesy.


      As always, if you'd like some help with this, just post a request over at the Mercenaries For Hire Difficult Instances thread and we'd be glad to give you a hand!

      This is one dungeon - four fights (so far, had to leave after that for family reasons so don't know if it went further). Only one cheat fight so far, which surprised me.

      Oh sorry! I didn't see a cheat guide up yet so I posted this one.

      Edit: Now that I see it, it looks like yours is for drops? I'm not going to deal with that here, just cheat strategy.

      Nope, not yet. The quest says to defeat her, but really you're just fending off your minions. Kind of like the final dungeons of KT,MB, MS, etc. I have to say that I AM a little surprised at the small amount of cheating, though. I was expecting something more like TotH.

      So are you! In my TotH cheat guide I put a link to Chase LionHammer's general dungeon guide which has info on drops and stuff like that - would you like me to do the same for you on this one?
