1. Icasaracht's Temple
Icasaracht's Temple is packed with Sahuagin Guards, Water Elementals, Vodyanoi Guards, Ice Golems and other monsters, if you run straight into the fray your party will be torn to shreds. Strategy is important in this battle. Wait back and advance cautiously if possible, using the limited lines of sight and cramped areas of the temple to your advantage. Be sure to sift through the remains of the higher level monsters and the Sahuagin Guards after you have dispensed with them, they carry powerful spears and wear tough armour.
2. Sahuagin Prince
At the back of this area where the Sahuagin Prince stands with his guards are a horde of containers, vases and assorted jars, many of which are cracked, shattered or damaged. Seven of them contain valuable items, so search them thoroughly. You will find the following magical items: The Icon of Power, Lover, Debian's Rod of Smiting, Pestilent Dawn, Sceptre of Tyranny and an Unstrung Harp.
Most importantly, search the corpse of the Sahuagin Prince for the key to Icasaracht's Lair, and use it to exit this area at the North Door.
3. Dragon Egg
You must destroy this dragon egg before leaving the area, this will net you 10,000 experience points and prevent Icasaracht's plan to reincarnate herself in the body of her offspring in order to acheive immortality.
4. Oil Processing Devices
If any of your party members are proficient with a crossbow, you should search the area thoroughly for Bolts of Sekolah's Fire, which many of its inhabitants carry. This room contains several spherical devices that appear to be processing some sort of viscous oil, search the devices to collect more of the aforementioned bolts.
This door leads to the final confrontation with Icasaracht. Ready your party before opening it.
