Caren Left A Comment On DDO Players News Episode 20: It’s In The Eyes Of The Beholder

Great podcast! There are a couple of ways to product against beholders. The best way IMHO is to run necropolis 1 & 2 to get a tier 2 Silver flame pendant. It is minimum level 9 absorbs 5 insta-death spells. It’s not a chest reward, you just have to pick up a base item from an NPC in the necropolis. Happy Hunting!

    Just thought I would mention – in the Prisoner – when you are blown off the platform, any of the required components are taken out of your inventory and put in front of the npc for you to collect – you find them as little bags.
    I find your podcast quite amusing as it reminds me when I was just started playing (now 5 years ago and many many lives later)

  2. Caren /

    As I was listening to this podcast I realized my instructions for getting an upgraded Silver Flame Talisman were as clear as mud.

    Step 1 Go to necropolis and talk to NPC Jakob Izakanos to get the Silver Flame Nugget. (Do not talk to Pok Tranh or accept the Emerald Claw nugget or the silver flame one will disappear).

    Step 2 Run the level 5 quests: Tomb of the Immortal Heart, Tomb of the Burning Heart, Tomb of the Crimson Heart, and Tomb of the Sanguine Heart in any order. These unlock the Bloody Crypt (level 6). Alternatively you can post an LFM for Bloody Crypt asking for someone who can unlock.

    Step 3 Bring your Silver Flame Nugget and run Bloody Crypt. At the end, after you kill the boss, find the special alter to upgrade the Silver Flame Nugget into a Silver Flame Amulet.

    Step 4 Run the level 8 quests: Tomb of the Shadow Guard, Tomb of the Shadow Knight, Tomb of the Shadow King, Tomb of the Shadow Lord to unlock The Shadow Crypt. Then again, Shadow Crypt is tons of XP so you may be able to find a group and skip this step.

    Step 5 Bring your Silver Flame Amulet and run The Shadow Crypt. I highly recommend bringing along someone who knows this quest or using an online guide, otherwise you might be in there for days.. At the end, after you kill the boss, find the special alter to upgrade the Silver Flame Amulet into a Silver Flame Pendant.


    Stop here to keep the item useful for the beholders in The Prisoner and Jungle of Khyber if you’re running them at level.

    Step 6 Run the level 11 quests: Tomb of the Unhallowed, Tomb of the Blighted, Tomb of the Tormented, Tomb of the Forbidden to unlock the Cursed Crypt. Tomb of the Tormented is a horrible quest IMHO so bring someone who knows how to lead the rats. See also using LFM to open.

    Step 7 Run Cursed Crypt (don’t forget your pendant). As above find the special alter to upgrade to the Silver Flame talisman (level 11)


    Alternatively, you can upgrade the nugget to the amulet to the pendant to the talisman at the Cursed Crypt, but only once per run. Last time I ran these, you had to do all 4 pre-quests every time you wanted to run the Cursed Crypt, which is a pain. So make sure you have someone who can open it who doesn’t finish with you or “hold the window’

      Thanks for this! This is great info a new player for sure! I’m not sure how I even missed doing this the 1rst time around I ran this, I got the nugget, but never did anything with it, I enjoy those quests, so I did not mind running them again!
