Back to Eye of the Beholder 2

Silver Tower Level 3

Level 3 of the Silver Tower is where you find the Crystal Hammer that you need to get access to the Azure Tower. It’s inhabited by Will o’wisps and Beholders. The Wisps have a low armor class, making them difficult to hit. Use Prayer and Haste spells to increase your damage output. Beholders are resistant to magic so don’t waste your magic spells on them. Dodge around the Beholder’s spells. Never try to face them head on.
