Description


Egsby Castle is a Haunted weeks special event location that is found in Region 6, Central during those events.

Egsby Castle is also a trapdoor location, leading to the Boiler room.

Requirements

You must have at least 50,000,000 XP to travel to Egsby Castle. There is no cost for you to travel to or from Egsby Castle during a Haunted week special event6, and you will be able to travel freely between Egsby Castle and other locations you have unlocked.

Local ghosts

Many of the ghosts in Egsby Castle may be frozen and will require the thawing stat and/or the brute force stat for you to capture them.

Trapdoor

Egsby Castle also has a trapdoor to the Boiler room.

If you fall through the trapdoor into the Boiler room you have a chance to attract a number of the gargoyle ghosts and some secret ghosts, all of which may be on fire.

Mystic penalty

You lose 70 mystic power points as soon as you enter Egsby Castle.

Setups

You will need different setups depending on what you are tryint to do in this HW location:

Obviously, some of these setups may be combined, depending on the items you have in inventory.

You will also need to have a camera armed, to capture the secret ghosts in both Egsby Castle and in the Boiler room.

Ghosts


The ghosts you can find in Egsby Castle include those shown in the table below.

You can sort the ghosts from weakest to strongest by clicking on the small down arrow next to the column header "Strength". Not all of these ghosts can be captured with a raw power setup; for those that can be captured with raw power, assume a mimimum of 1125 raw or so is needed. Obviously, if you are going with a strong mystic power/will power and brute force setup, your raw power total is less relevant.

Special ghosts

Special mythic creature, monster, gift, and seasonal ghosts can also be trapped in Egsby Castle, since they can be found in all non-raiding, non-AV locations in Virtual Scotland.

Mythic-creature ghosts

The special mythic-creature ghosts include such Nessy's-loving ghosts as Ghost Nessy, Banshee ghost, Cu Sith, Kelpie, Selkie, Glowing Ghost Nessy, Shrieking banshee ghost, Howling Cu Sith, Luring Kelpie, Moonlight Selkie, Glaistig ghost and Green glaistig ghost.

Monster ghosts

The monsters you may attract in Egsby Castle include the original monsters as well as the jurassic and dino monsters, the elemental monsters, the blood cauldron monsters, the sacred monsters (also known as the sacred monsters), the techno monsters, the alien monsters, and some golden monsters... whew! It's easier just to refer to the monsters.

Gift ghosts

Gift ghosts are ghosts you will only catch if a fellow agent sends one to you. The gift ghosts that are currently available and that can be caught in Egsby Castle include:

During the Christmas holiday season, the Christmas elf ghost is also available for friends to gift to other friends.

Seasonal special ghosts

Loot


Loot is occasionally dropped in Egsby Castle (and in all non-raiding locations) by the local ghosts, by special ghosts and by all of the ghost monsters (original, elemental, jurassic monsters, vampire lords and ladies, and the knights of the round table).

As experienced players, agents of S.C.O.T.C.H. hunting in Egsby Castle will recognize that which ghosts drop which loot can change without notice. If you have a loot drop not mentioned here, please let the wiki sysop know so that a correction can be made.

Plasma (of all sorts), chrono crystal fragments, magic potions (including Nessy's Golden Reserve), and some companions are all occasionally dropped here. See the loot page for information about the loot items that are widely available in Virtual Scotland.

Mockery loot

If you have the mockery stat in your setup (through the talent tree bonus or because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 mocktails added to other loot drops from the ghosts in Egsby Castle. Because these mockery stat drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in any loot lists for Egsby Castle. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.

Mockery drops can be distinguished from a normal loot drop as follows:

A standard loot drop of a mocktail     5x Cherry bomb
A mockery loot drop of a mocktail     5 Devil driver

Snowflake loot

If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat), ghosts in Egsby Castle may occasionally and randomly drop you a snowflake as loot. Because these snowfall-driven drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, snowflake loot drops are not specifically included in any lists on this page or on the individual ghost pages.

Vintage connoissesur loot

If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 bottles of a non-Nessy's loot potion or of Shadetouch blue or Shadetouch purple added to other loot drops in Egsby Castle. Because these connoisseur drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the non-Nessy's loot potions involved are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible bottles that can be dropped is found on the non-Nessy's loot potions page.

Both normal drops of a particular non-Nessy's loot potion and connoisseur drops of a particular loot potion show the same way in your journal:

16 x Shadetouch purple (10 bonus loot)
