Bestiary entryEdit

Page 1: ObservationsEdit

Being an undead given to sudden manifestation in the streets of large towns where the living reside in numbers. Such that perish with sins unabsolved are barred from celestial reposed and cast into the darkness, from which pollution they rise once more. Though they are related in sort to the ethereal ghost, their fearsome appearance has led to the widespread belief that they are none other than the very hand of Death. This has led some necromantic authorities to place them in a genus altogether separate from their ghostly kin.

How to findEdit

The Gespenst is located in the No. 3 Cloaca Spur. The player must close the No. 10 and No. 3 gates using the Sluice Gate Key (from doing the White Mousse hunt) and enter the No. 3 Cloaca Spur to find them. It is also located in the No. 4 Cloaca Spur. The player must close the No. 11 and No. 4 gates and then enter the No. 4 Cloaca Spur.

Item farmingEdit

Chaining the Gespenst to increase the chance of it dropping the Book of Orgain can be done by circling between three areas; from No. 3 (or 4) Cloaca Spur, the player should take the northernmost east (west) exit into No. 1 Cloaca; from there, the player should go north to the Central Waterway Control, and circle back south into No. 3 Cloaca Spur.



Gespenst means "ghost" in German.
