I have some questions about the Subterrane, and I haven't been able to find answers elsewhere. I figured a couple of people here might have the answers I'm seeking.
First, the Subterrane did not exist back in my day so I know little about what to expect there. The few times I have ventured into its depths (from the Marketplace entrance) I get my butt handed to me very quickly. I am a monk and I generally duo with a friend who plays a Fav. Soul. Most buffs he cast get dispelled rather quickly once we enter combat. My question is: What is the best tactic for combat down there? What buffs/spells help? I haven't had a problem dealing damage, but are there any specific weapon types we should be using, or bring with us?
Secondly, as I said, I am a monk and I am attempting to get the Icy Raiment. I have looked at maps of the zone and get a little confused about the F and F'. I'm assuming I have to activate a rune and make a portal. I've clicked runes before and baddies start pouring out of the created portal. Where exactly is the rune/portal that takes you to Garamol? top, bottom, middle tier of that big room? Also, when is the portal able to be used? After I kill all the baddies that spawn I would assume.
Any help would be much appreciated.
