Not too long ago, the North-East tower of the wall of Midgaard was a place where little happened. The guards performed their duties, and kept the rif raf away from the villages inside of the wall. That all changed when one day Tannah Machadae appeared out of nowhere. With her geomancing powers and her pack of trolls and ogres she quickly decimated the company of guards and laid waste to the surrounding lands. She claimed the watch tower as her personal domicile, altering it from normal stone to obsidian, to suit her personal taste better. Now the black needle stands as a bitter reminder of who controls this part of the land, and what she has done to it.

To get inside you'll need the Key To The Gate. One copy of this item loads in the Barrier Wastes on the Cave Troll who is also part of the Rough Band Of Tin Quest. Another copy loads on the Female Rogue in Desiccated Farmland.
This is prime soloing ground for casters, although it is not very big. If you sneak and move hidden then you just have to worry about the cubs, the lion, and the Sand Elemental (the last two do not wander). You can set recall at the top of the tower and the trap door at the top will prevent cubs from wandering up (the trap door does not need a key). Keys are important in this area. The guard at the top will have the key for the the lion and the golem. The Lezgnar has the key to the main wolf and Tannah. Tannah is usually not worth it due to the Black Aura. Tannah has the key for the Magma Monster.
