|Northeast of the Bangkorai Gate|
Shada's Tear is a ruined Nedic city located in western Craglorn, northeast of the Bangkorai Gate. The exterior of the city ruins is sprawling with Dusteater goblins, durzogs, and ogres. A duneracer called Ziruhir of the Deep can be summoned here by activating crystals and a brazier. A powerful troll named Stomper and its two goblin minders, Skit and Scat inhabit the goblin camp surrounding the exterior of the ruins.
Near the river you can descend to the lower part of the ruin. The proper way to get to and from the ruins is via a ladder leading in and out of the crevice. However, you can also get to the ruins by jumping down the hole and landing in the water. Inside the city, a group of researchers are trying to solve the mystery of the city's cursed water. Their leader, Sali'ma will ask for your assistance in cleansing the waters and dealing with the powerful Nereid Queen named Shada. While helping to cleanse the city waters, you also have an opportunity to find and free some lost researchers and assist a Nedic priest.
Several books are found at the entrance. A copy of Nedes of the Deathlands can be found within, to the right of the first staircase leading into the ruins. Tishi's Research Notes are laying on a cot next to Vhasla's cage.
Shops and ServicesEdit
A Waterlogged Journal can be found at the entrance to the Burial Grounds, by the cliff overlooking a pool of tainted water. The poisonous cloud within the Burial Grounds deals massive poison damage. You must pass it by following behind it as it moves. Emi'liah is responsible for corrupting the waters here.
The City District is full of undead Nedes who are accompanied by Nereids. A scroll titled The Light Holds the Way is found on an altar in the first room, and tells you how to solve the puzzle that allows you to enter the next room. Jah'lah is responsible for corrupting the waters here.
A detour through a subterranean cavern leads to Shada's lair. These caves are full of spiders. Muhma the Stinger can be fought within, though this is entirely optional. Shada dwells in the deepest depths of these halls.
