Talk:The Black Curtain

I vanquished the black curtain just now and found more than 240 monsters to kill. I am unsure as to if this is due to a quest or because perhaps bone feinds created might count towards the count. however be aware the number of foes may change from that given on the page. Thanks, Jamnog

Note for vanquishers, the Necrid Horseman patrol in groups and move quickly, they cover territory that has the Damned Cleric's in them, who have spawn groups when you near them. Be prepared for this or you can easily get overwhelmed by a patrol that quickly surrounds you with bone minions etc. This coupled with a high level barbs from 2 sources can hurt you very quickly. Holy Damage works well here. Ray of Judgement for example. Puk 12:02, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
The Necrid Horseman patrols aren't really too bad, even multiple groups of them, because their dmg output isn't high. What can cause upsets are the Smoke Phantoms that spawn when you attack the Damned Clerics, as they're competent elementalists. If you're fighting those and Necrid Horseman groups arrive, then the fun level rises considerably if you're relying on henchmen. :-) The best tactic if you're underpowered is to flag your H/H off the path and lure the passing patrols. Only then tackle the Damned Clerics in safety. (Of course, with 7-hero teams, it's all academic anyway.) Morgaine 05:04, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

I just vanquished at 191 foes. 06:44, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

221 on a vanquish just now without any quests active but doing Cartography, and therefore spawning all the edge foes. Morgaine 05:04, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

The Iron curtain?[edit]

Number of foes to vanquish[edit]

The number seems to have risen substantially. I just had vanquish 299 foes without quest influences; I probably activated nearly every pop up as I couldn't find the last mob (and even ran into another pop up after I was done as I moved to Talmark). I guess with the addition of the peacekeepers the number has gone up quite a bit.--Fogeltje 18:37, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Definitely. Vanquished it the other day with 289 16:55, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Agree that peacekeepers have upped the count - Vanquished with 296

Yeah I just finished with 293. Do the pop ups contribute to the number you need to kill if you dont pop them? Just answered my own question rofl. (the answer is no xD)

Losing things[edit]

Either losing my mind or my party, but when I map traveled from within the Black Curtain to the Temple of Ages, I lost all my henchmen. Added the anomaly note to the wiki page. 03:23, 28 October 2010 (UTC)


Noticed a mummy lashed to the mast of a small boat northwest of Liris the Sage while vanquishing today. I don't know if it qualifies as a landmark or just a morbid bit of scenery. --Gwenar Leours 14:49, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Not a Landmark as nothing lorewise leads playes here, but still good catch I never knew of this until now. User Yoshida Keiji Signature.pngYoshida Keiji(talk) 14:58, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Reading this some 6 years later prompted me to go look. There are two others in this swamp area and bobbing up and down. One you can walk right up to on the south west side. Another is inaccessible (out in the unwalkable area) but you can still see it from a distance. --Tloch14 (talk) 05:03, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
Make that 3 others. Found another you can walk up to that kinda looks like it crashed (no wonder, with so much collapsed catwalk bridge-things). --Tloch14 (talk) 05:07, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
Sorry for all the spam, but another thing I noticed was that this is swamp water doesn't poison you. Fairly certain all others do. --Tloch14 (talk) 05:10, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
