Hot Water is a zone consisting of multiple layers of underwater caverns. The water, as the zone name implies, is hot. Nodes called "burning fissure" can cause one of two elemental based DoTs; bring either a priest or a lot of elemental cure potions to cure them. It isn't possible to completely avoid all the burning fissures.

To reach The Ghastly Rosch Mal...

  • Step into the upper submerged cavern at ( -85, 24, 87 ) /waypoint -84.56, 23.50, 86.94
  • Swim down into the lower submerged cavern at ( -111, -0, 56 ) /waypoint -110.97, -0.35, 55.81
  • Swim back up into the upper cavern at ( -72, -0, -1 ) /waypoint -71.85, -0.37, -1.45
  • A hard-to-see passage leads into The Ghastly Rosch Mal's chamber. Go to ( -57, 21, -33 ) /waypoint -56.71, 20.84, -32.75 and then head straight up.
  • The Ghastly Rosch Mal spawns at ( -94, 23, -53 ) /waypoint -94.14, 23.27, -52.73
