THE PLAYER MAZE - How to get there
There is one more way to end up in the player maze i.e. by becoming a disciple of Aoskar (Is done in the broken temple of Aoskar found in the south eastern conor of Alley of Dangerous Angles)
It is true, that she starts her offer at 1000 jink, but after talking to her about it she raises it to 2000
Ravel's Secret Garden: You only get the chance to enter Ravel's secret garden if you got a lock of her hair during the conversation you had with her. Her secret garden is reached through a portal whose key is the lock of hair. The portal is found in the centre of the maze close to where you battle Ravel. More precisely it is placed under the tree, which has been bent down to the ground, thus forming an arch (Mouse Position: X=2330 Y=1969, Area: AR0610). There are more such arches made from bent down trees, yet it is the one south of the largest "tree arch".
There are three dead patches of odd vegetation in the Secret Garden. If you asked Ravel nicely enough to teach you some of her magical art she gave you three black barbed seeds. These three seeds can be used with the three patches and thus be shaped into three Black Barbed Wands. More important is probably, that you can rest in this Secret Garden and thus regain your strength if it was exhausted during the battle with Ravel.
A less bloody way of getting "Celestial Fire" is simply to have Annah (or yourself if your are a thief) use pickpocket (thief-skill) on Trias. This will give you not only "Celestial Fire" and the "Celestial Host" spell, but also a gold ring and such to sell for jink. "Celestial Fire" is great if you use melee weapons at all, since it can be shaped into any weapon the first time you use it (right click on it in the inventory and use it. It cannot be equipped until this has been done)
