I'm back with another guide! This time we are journeying to the Emperor's Retreat, in a quest to complete the Krokoshpinx, and unlock the Temple of Storms! I am creating guides to the Instances of the Spiral, so if there is one that I have missed or one you would like to see sooner, please PM me! So far we have Sunken City, The Throne Room of Fire, and The Vault of Ice.
SWORDROLL'S GUIDE TO THE EMPEROR'S RETREAT
# of enemies/battle: 2 for 1 person, 3 for 2 people, and 4 for 3-4 people
People Recommended: 1-3
Start Location: Entrance Hall
Estimated Time: 45 minutes, less with friends
Remember to fight Krokotep at the end if you need to! You will find Wooden Chests, Parchment, and Stone Blocks in this instance.
Ok, so after the Vault of Ice, you remember the Entrance Hall! That is the starting point of the Emperor's Retreat:
You must now talk to Shalek the Wise, who tells you to defeat two princes, each at different ends of the hall. This picture shows the recommended route:
Now you will have access to the Frozen Lake. Talk to Shalek, who commands that you free six shackled slaves, located where the red dots are on the map:
Now you have another boss to defeat! You must un-freeze the door to get access to this location! All of the Braziers are an icy teal color, as shown in the picture (to the very right) and they must all be a fiery orange color (center). But be careful-if you wait to long to activate them all then they will all reset:
Now for the battle with the Boss:
Return to Shalek, who needs you to retrieve a key from the Sokkwi Keymaster! Follow the route shown to fight him:
Now your quests here will be over, and a combination will appear behind the boss:
Though there are no more quests, if you are working in Krokotopia, yu wont be finished yet! Turn the corner and a set of doors will open:
Now use the combination to unlock the final gate. Activate the different Obliesks:
Now you have access to Krokhotep! He is gaurded by one Sokkwi High Gaurd. He becomes one of teh first Krokotopian bosses to have a chest. Here is a picture of his chest and the Golden Scarab after the battle:
Now you have completed the instance!
I have included picture of all of the bosses/enemies in the instance:
