    There’s a Lore entry (2 I think) behind the Time Tomb entrance

    • Anon says:

      yep, Lore #2 is right behind the Time Tomb.

      • Hoggimus Doggimus says:

        “Lore #2 is right behind the Time Tomb.” Clarification: it’s behind the version of the tomb entrance OUTSIDE the instance. Don’t waste time running around the tomb entrance INSIDE the instance, cursing Unfair the whole time. Not that I did that. Or anything. *wanders off aimlessly, hoping nobody notices the drool*

    Walkthrough says: “Run to coordinates ( 130 , 106 ) – past the sleeping guard into the room.” NOT! The actual, non-dyslexic coordinates are 130, 610.

    Why is the penis censored on that statue?

    I got a bug, pulling all guards from the beggining of the map, in case you get it, simply remove the roman’s robe and wear them again.
