If outsiders were ever again seen in the caverns it was [to be] a sign of prophecy.
 

BackgroundEdit

Throughout the dormant volcano, aptly named 'Solusek's Eye' in honor of the sun-god Solusek Ro, the power of the Burning Prince courses through it's denizens. Legions of goblins, flame-golems, and efreeti bar passage to the deeper reaches of the pit. They themselves are safeguarded by the souls of foolish explorers and the manifested fury of the fiery mountain itself. Yet it is in the domain of the Guardians of Thyr, cruel fire-giants with burning eyes, where the most precious secrets are kept and the most powerful reside. An adventurer's only aid is found near the front door in the form of witless gnomes. Courage is no ally here: it is through the cold hand of fate that anything of value will be obtained from a visit into the fiery depths.

Solusek's Eye, together with Permafrost, are the final dungeons of classic EverQuest II. When EQII first came out back in 2004, Solusek's Eye would cause major performance problems for older computers as the zone has many large open areas with period-appropriate detailed visuals.

EntranceEdit

  • From Lavastorm: ( -327, 84, -153 ) /waypoint -327, 84, -153

To get to Solusek's Eye for the first time, take the horse to the Dragon's Breath Tunnel, follow the tunnel up, and walk along the edge of the lava pool to the door to the dungeon. Alternatively, you can simply scale the exterior of the volcano on your mount.

Outside the door to the dungeon, step on the teleporter cog at ( -327, 85, -185 ) /waypoint -327, 85, -185, which will reduce travel time to Solusek's Eye in the future. After doing this you may use the teleporter gear within the Shrine of Thunder to teleport directly here.

Domain of the Fire GiantsEdit

  • Elevator back up to the Path of Lava: ( -48, -509, 97 ) /waypoint -48, -509, 97
  1. At the first fork, ( -176, -559, 230 ) /waypoint -176, -559, 230, there is a right path that leads to the Infernal Forge of Ages and a left path that leads to to continuation of the dungeon.
  2. The left path will have led you to inside a building whose exit doors at ( -312, -595, 188 ) /waypoint -312, -595, 188, appear to drop off into nothing. Use the switch on the door frame slightly above the location listed to control an elevator (it moves slowly and there is a short delay when it is given a command). Taking the elevator up will lead you to the rest of the dungeon, while taking it down will lead you to Searing Ember and a curiously vacant chamber.
    • If you took the elevator down, use the switch at ( -319, -642, 181 ) /waypoint -319, -642, 181 to get back up.
  3. After taking the elevator up, the only direction is forward. The next choice will come at ( -104, -615, -290 ) /waypoint -104, -615, -290. Jump down to the rocks and then to to ramp directly below the given location. This ramp leads to the Oratorium of Thyr.
    • Warning: There is no way back at this point. You most teleport out or commit suicide to leave.
  4. Progress through the Oratorium of Thyr. Exit through the back doors.
  5. Continue down the ramp to the Gong of Ro. This is the entrance to Nagafen's Lair, but can only be entered if on a quest to speak with him.
