Silver Tower Level 1

The first level of the Silver Tower is inhabited by Mantis Warriors and Giant Wasps. Mantis Warriors and one of the quickest enemies you’ll face. Their weapons are coated with a paralyzing saliva that will paralyze your party members for a short while. Giant wasps can also not only paralyze your party members but poison them as well.

1) Stairs down to Temple Level 1 Location 14. The first time you enter this level you’ll be greeted by a Spirit.

2A-W) This room is filled with light pads. Your entire party will take heavy damage when trying to pass through them. Some of the pads will blink on and off, giving you a chance to run through them. The optimal path to the eastern side of the room is 2C, 2F, 2I, 2J, 2K, 2O, 2S, 2R and 2V. Once you get to 2R the eastern walls will disappear. The light at 2J never really blinks off so you’ll always take damage when trying to pass through it.
