     07.09.2003 - Guide Creation
                  Got off my lazy ass to write this thing
    
     =================
     WHO CARES?
     =================
    
     A lot of people might say, "Who cares? It's one stupid
     item." Where I come from, we spend all day trying to
     find every single secret in a game. Doesn't matter how
     retarded it may be, if it can be done, it should be
     done. Just to spite the programmer who didn't think
     any one would take the time to care.
     This FAQ is also here for the few people who would
     refuse to maphack or use codes to reveal all the places
     on the map.
     I'm also using this as a little excersize to make a FAQ
     with pictures because I'm really interested in making
     PDF based strategy guides so kids don't have to shell
     out 15$ for some printed piece of crap that never
     updates.
    
     =================
     PRETEXT
     =================
    
     The optional quest to find the fragments of the
     shadow orb is in the Night Elf campaign, the mission
     titled "The Tomb of Sargeras"
     Once you complete the quest, you'll have the Shadow
     Orb +10 which increases the wearer's attack damage by
     10, armor by 3, and grants enhanced hit point
     regeneration.
     The warden will have this for as long as you have her,
     then it will eventually be passed on as the story
     progresses. It is still unclear wether or not the orb
     can be passed to Illidan.
    
     =================
     FRAGMENT 1
     =================
    
     There's a statue of a huntress that you'll come across.
     Past that, there will be two staircases you can walk up.
     (1)From the top of the lower stair case you'll be able
     to see a ledge with a rune. (2)Just Blink over to that
     ledge. Keep going down that path until it comes to an
     end. (3)From the end of that path you'll see another
     ledge straight across that you can Blink to. (4)At the
     far end of that ledge you'll find a piece of the orb.

     =================
     FRAGMENT 2
     =================
    
     Right after you save the Druids of the Claw, enter the
     area they were in. (1)Directly to the left and right
     there are rocks inbetween the temple walls and the
     surronding caves. Blink across the left set of rocks.
     Keep exploring down that path as far as it goes. (2)It
     curves around and you'll find another piece of the orb.

     =================
     FRAGMENT 3
     =================
    
     After you climb the three staircases that are near the
     huntress statue, (1)there is a piece of the floor that is
     glowing. Step on that piece of floor with the Warden.
     It will open a door. The door is located to the south of
     the top of the first staircase. (2)In that room Blink
     to the platform in the middle, then Blink to the ledge on
     the left. (3)There will be a piece of the orb.

     =================
     FRAGMENT 4
     =================
    
     There will be a narrow area that looks like a bridge.
     (1)You will be able to see a rune on your left as you
     pass. Blink to the rune and then follow that path to the
     left. (2)There will be a little area south of the main
     room. The orb fragmment is there.

     =================
     FRAGMENT 5
     =================
    
     You'll be going through the caves for a little while.
     Eventually in the north west most part of the map
     you'll be able to go up a hill and fight a giant turtle.
     (1)If you bring the Warden to the south west most part of
     that ledge you should be able to see a rune. Blink to
     that area and there will be a number of barrels and
     crates. The piece of the orb will be there.

     (1)Ledge:

     =================
     FRAGMENT 6
     =================
    
     Just south of the hill where you fought the giant turtle
     I just spoke of in the previous entry, (1)you'll find a
     tree. Use a huntress owl sentinel on that tree. It will
     reveal a ledge to the south east that you can Blink up
     to. (2)There will be a piece of the orb.

     =================
     FRAGMENT 7
     =================
    
     As you head eastwards and into the level, you'll come
     across another tree. Use another huntress owl sentinel
     on that tree. (1)It will reveal an area behind the wall
     that you can Blink to. Kill the turle in that area to
     recieve another piece of the orb.

     FRAGMENT 8
     =================
    
     After you get back into the temple, there will be an
     area to the north that you will enter and find a (1)ledge
     overlooking a flooded floor. Blink down to the floor and
     head north. (2)There will be a ramp to the right that
     leads to an area. When you walk up there, it will reveal
     an area to the left with a rune. (3)Go back to the
     flooded floor and Blink up there and there will be
     another piece of the orb.

     FRAGMENT 9
     =================
    
     You'll destroy a gate with two huge states next to it.
     When you enter there will be a path leading north and
     then east towards some crates. On your way there you
     will see a rune. Blink to the rune and then head north.
     You will uncover another rune. Blink to that rune and
     then head to the west. You'll find another piece.

     Using the same gate as I mentioned in the last entry as
     a reference point, head south. (1)You'll discover an
     area to below that ledge to south east with a rune. Blink
     to the rune then head south and then to the east.

     F.A.Q.s
     =================
    
     This is traditionally the area where I answer frequently
     asked questions reguarding my guide. But I find it pretty
     hard to believe there will be any questions seeing as how
     I'm not only describing where this stuff is, but giving
     you pictures as well.
     If you have any questions, please make sure you've read
     this guide very closely before asking me.

     I don't have a version of frozen throne that I can play
     with online...*cough*thanks edonkey2000*cough*. Hey, I'm
     poor. Gimme a break. So, I figured I'd try to help out
     the community in the meantime while I'm waiting to get
     a used copy where I work so I can get it at a deep
     discount.
     Read the F.A.Q.s section before asking me any questions
     reguarding this guide. For general Warcraft3 questions,
     please bother someone else.
