Map of the Tower of Courage

The Tower of Courage is a large tower in the Fissure of Woe located directly to the east of the Fissure of Woe starting point. The tower has three turrets and an initially locked entrance. From the tower, players can travel east to the Great Battle Field or south to the Fissure Shore.

The Tower of Courage is of significance to Balthazar and the eternal army. The tower has been surrounded by numerous patrols of the Shadow Army. Reclaiming the Tower of Courage forms the first quest players are offered in the Fissure.

  • If Rastigan the Eternal dies, the party will be removed from the Fissure of Woe.
  • Killing a specific Abyssal (the one patroling on the western side of the tower, near the first group of menzies with 2 monks) will trigger Rastigan if he is within a specific range (a little farther than sight range). He will then move towards the tower and might die if his path have not been cleared of foes, whether you took the quest or not.
