Location banner Zeruul's Castle

Environmental Requirements

  • Shadow Compass thumb

This old castle was once beautiful and grand, filled with vibrant stained glass, tall buttresses, and amazing murals. Since Zeruul's Shadow took up residence however, it has become a home for all things evil, dark, and of shadow. Giant monsters roam the hallways and surrounding lands, killing all who dare trespass. They feed on fear, hatred, and despair. Inside lives Zeruul, ruling and destroying the land just as he is ruled and destroyed by his Shadow. If any humanity still exists in this place, it will not live much longer. Zeruul's Shadow will drown and suffocate it in darkness.

Seeking strategyEdit

See Zeruul's Shadow quest series for quest-related info & strategy.

It is highly recommended to use Optimeter (or premium Solstice Sword) along with Shadow Compass when facing the dark characters in this location. Shadow Breastplate should be used when facing Zeruul and Master Shadow, along with Bottled Shadow (or another powerful potion), since both are extremely powerful. Friends with Vrilya Avatars will also help (+3 defense bonus per friend, a max of 9 defense - not to be neglected).

Once unlocked, Master Shadow can be encountered with Basic Energy. Before that, Basic Energy will only attract Children of Zeruul (which drop Bottled Shadow potions).

Important note: After defeating the first version of Zeruul, don't forget to change your weapon! Optimeter only works against dark characters, and Zeruul (Human Form) has a Companion Family Type.


Mostly concentrates on regular (not premium or seasonal) items available up to Chapter 10.
