Tyball's Shadow

Tyball's Shadow (EC)

Tyball was a powerful wizard and the villain of Ultima Underworld I. He escaped from the Underworld after the ghost of Tyball's brother Garamon called Avatar who later killed him.

His ghost, Tyball's Shadow can be found in the Underworld. It is located in the Shrine of Truth which can be reached by entering the red Moongate red transparent.png gate in the Ankh portion of the Underworld. Don't worry, tiles appear so you can walk to/from it.

You will need to defeat it to gain access to the Stygian Abyss Dungeon via the key quest (note that the Sacred Quest is easier to gain access). If you get the kill, a yellow key will be placed in your pack. This yellow key is one of 3 keys required to finish the key quest. Keys do have timers on them, however they provide plenty of time to acquire the rest.

  • The key quest is NOT the only way to gain access to the Stygian Abyss Dungeon. If you have a mule or any other 'under powered' characters this is probably not the best way to gain access and you might try the Sacred Quest.
  • Tyball's Shadows has been buffed up since the SA expansion first released and the Shroud of the Condemned is now considered a rare drop. When SA first published, Tyball's Shadow only had like 100hp and dropped a shroud every time, thus flooding the market with the robes.
  • Tyball's Shadow spawns around 2-3 minutes.
