The Arcane Tower overlooking the Ebonlake.

The Arcane Tower is a Location in Chapter One. It is located in the Underdark, overlooking the Ebonlake.

Area Information[edit | edit source]

Approaching the Arcane Tower is made difficult by the Arcane Cannons protecting it.

The area is divided roughly into the entry area, each floor of the tower, and the garden outside the bottom floor. Upon initial approach, the doors are shut and the central elevator is disabled, and floors must be accessed through other means including spells such as fly, jumping through broken windows, from balconies, and onto mushrooms.

Once the generator is powered, the arcane cannons power down, the arcane braziers become lit, and the elevator can be used to ascend and descend between the floors.
