Get the ring of jumping in the chest at the beginning of the shadowlands and equip it-it'll slightly help you,I had to use vines hanging to help me on my climb

yea I needed the ring

why a critical item was placed with no notice of its existence or necessity off on the side of the zone is..... I guess the opposite of hand-holding AAA gaming on the bright side

Few advanced questions

Great game. Managed to complete it in about ten hours... I have completed all the quests and achievements and am just 'grinding' with my character looking for anything I have missed...

There seems to be just three things left to do that I can't figure out.

1. The chest on the ledge in Grim Pass near Wastelands exit. I have tried jumping and jumping, with ring of jumping, over the rocks and climbing the tree there, but never seem to have enough jump to get through the gap in the rocks. I have also gone down to the ledge below the one with the chest and got completely stuck there. I eventually figured out I can dial back the autosave to a few minutes before I went there. Is there some straightforward way to get this chest or is it just a case of 'keep trying' ?

2. After defeating the Dark Elf Prince, I spared his life and the next instant was transported back to Aven. When I return to the tunnels, the place where I met him has a locked gate in front of it. I can't find any way into the place to retrieve the contents of the chest. I read there was a lever somewhere but no amount of searching can locate it...

3. Whilst combing the area around the locked gate for some way in, I happened to look up to the area directly opposite infront of the locked gate. There is another ledge up there, with what looks like a cave. Looking directly at it, it's just a little way to the right of the Heronmar Tunnels entrance. I climbed the curved rock to my right to get nearer the ledge, but my jump ability doesn't allow me to get far enough. Anyone else seen this ledge/cave? Can you get to it or am I just wasting time??

Thanks!

Alright for you first problem you should upgrade you acrobatics skill to at least 40 or 50 percent more height gain. After that you should get down to the lower ledge and you will easily be able to jump on to the area where the treasure chest is.

Unfortunately I couldn't really find a way to unlock the gate where the elf prince was so I can't help you with that.

As for the ledge/cave you really don't need to bother about it as there is nothing there. But yes you can get to it by going to the other side via the bridge and then jumping on the rocks which border the empty cave. As you have the ring of jumping the fall shouldn't kill you.

Hope this helps

Great, thanks for the tips. Yeah, I figured out how to get up to the higher ledge in the tunnels by going across the bridge and leaping over the rocks. There was even a tiny little ledge I could skim along which made me think it was put there deliberately by the game developers, only to find the cave was empty!

I'll give the grim pass one another go when I build up my jumping skill...

It is in a crypt under the statue of king orin in south aven. It's about right in the centre of the village.

Any idea as to which monsters give the most XP?

I now hate this game

Why would you swing from a nice easy level of difficulty (after I dropped the dif down) to far too frustrating at the point where you have to move the boxes with the wind ability in the tower.

Any easy way around this? I was close to rage-deleting the game this morning.
