- If you bring out a Black Moa just outside Sunspear Great Hall and walk up to Beastmaster Yapono and Chitundu, they will run away in fear of your Moa.
- Vanquishers must defeat 148-218 foes in this area.
- The Mandragors that spawn underground around Tarom Rockbreaker only have to be killed if you trigger them, otherwise they can be ignored.
- By default this is the only area in all of Elona that has to be vanquished with a party of four. However, you can caravan vanquish it by completing the Blacktide Den or Venta Cemetary missions with three heroes and Kihm, Herta, Sogolon, and Gehraz in your party - you will be sent to the Sunspear Great Hall or Kamadan, respectively, with the full party of eight, allowing you to vanquish this area more easily. The mission can be completed in Normal Mode, and you can switch to Hard Mode while in the outpost.
