Town Quests

Vertigo (F3 10/13)

Enemies: Doom Bug, Slime, Breeder slime
Mayor Gunther (14/5) asks you to get rid of the plague. Find the bill in Joe's store room (9/22) and return to Gunther. After this, the well will be back to normal, and you can restore your HP for free.
Next, Gunther asks you to help the Red Dwarfes kill the Mad Dwarf King (see Dwarf Mines).

Nightshadow (D4 13/5)

Enemies: Bat Queen, Gnome Vampire, Count Draco
Here you have to kill Count Draco, the vampire. The tombstones provide you with hints how to set the sundials. Open Count Draco's coffin (1/14) at night.
The well will give you +10 Level temporary!

Rivercity (C3 11/7)

Enemies: Insane Beggar, Sorceress, Robber, Robber Boss
Barok (25/20) asks you to defeat the sorceresses and find his Magic Pendant (1/20). He gives you the "Enchant Item"-Spell and turns the well at (14/18) back to normal. Now you can restore your SP here.
At the robber's hideout (1/3), you can find Princess Roxanne's Tiara (see Castle Burlock).

Asp (C2 9/15)

Enemies: Snake Man, Guardian Asp
An evil machine has turned the townspeople into snakes. Read the pedestals to get a clue how to change the colors of the orbs around the well. Then you can get near the Snake Generator at (8/14) and destroy it. (Some squares on the little sand area will teleport you back.)
After this, the well will give you +100 HP.
At (8/11) you find Falagner's Crystal of Piezoelectricity.

Winterkill (A3 4/6)

Enemies: Spirit Bone, Spirit Polter Fool, Ghost Rider
Randon the Mayor (8/13) asks you to free Winterkill of the ghosts. Kill all ghosts ("Turn undead" works well), ring the gong at (13/11) and return to Randon. You have to repeat this twice.
To activate the well, ring the gongs at (6/13) and (6/9) twice. It will give you +50 Mgt.


Castle Burlock (D2 8/2)

Enemies: Mad Fool, (Castle Guard, King's Guard, Ice Troll, Fire Dragon)
King Burlock (Lvl 1, 8/1) wants you to find the sixth mirror. (You cannot fulfill this quest - you will see why.)
Artemus, the Royal Advisor (Lvl 1, 1/4) asks you to free Crodo (see Darzog's Tower).
The Master Builder (Lvl 1, 2/7) will rebuild your castle once you have bought it and found enough Megacredits.
Princess Roxanne (West Tower, Lvl 3, 2/11) wants you to find her Tiara which was stolen (see Rivercity).
If you open the treasure chest in the royal bedchamber (Lvl 3, 6/1), the castle will be filled with guards which are very hard to defeat and regenerate every time you come back. I think it's not worth the prize.
In the basement under the East Tower you can fight Castle Guards, Ice Trolls and a Fire Dragon, if you really want to.

Newcastle (C4 11/12)

You have to buy the ground for 50.000 Gold.
Every time you bring him 5 Megacredits, the Master Builder will improve your castle. The Megacredits are found in the Temple of Yak (8), Tomb of 1000 Terrors (8), and Golem Dungeon (14). Since only 3 improvements are possible, that's far more than you actually need.
1st improvement: When you enter the castle, you get the Stone of 1000 Terrors. It's not much of a castle though, but you can find some nice treasure in the rubble.
2nd improvement: You get the Golem Stone of Admittance. Now you have a little town, with a Blacksmith (Lvl 1, 4/7), Training (up to level 20, Lvl 1, 11/7), Temple (Lvl 2, 4/4) and Bank (Lvl 2, 5/8). You can fill your food backpack at the barrels in Lvl 1 (5/8), and the well gives you +20 AC.
For the 3rd improvement you need a special permit from the King's Advisor, so you have to free Crodo first. Now you have access to the dungeon (you can learn the required password by reading the statues), where you find the Xeen Slayer sword! (Note by Mitch Aigner: make sure that your troops are not max'ed out on Miscellaneous items. If there isn't enough room in your inventory, you will be throwing away your possible 4 Potions of the Gods.)

World Map Quests

Myra the Herbalist (F3 9/11) give you 5 Antidote Potions for every Phirna Root you bring her. (Phirna Roots are the red berries on Toad Meadow, F4). This is very useful at the beginning of the game!

An excellent opportunity to collect money and experience early in the game. To reach the different parts, check the mine car and type one of the following: Mine 1 (that's where you start), Mine 2, Mine 3, Mine 4, Mine 5. The codes for the deep mines are: Alpha, Theta, Kappa, Omega.
There are many walls you can bash in. Check the gold veins, bur save your game before - a cave-in might kill you. The liquids in the barrels improve your parameters permanently.
At Deep Mine Omega (30/26) you find the Mad Dwarf King.

Witch Tower (F4 10/9)

Enemies: Goblin, Wicked Witch, Head Witch, Harpy

The Elixir of Restoration is at (30/25).

Tomb of 1000 Terrors (C4 6/6)

Enemies: Ghoul, Tomb Guard, Tomb Terror
You get the Stone of 1000 Terrors at Newcastle, after the 1st improvement.

In the Iron section flip the switches to open secret passages, then use the teleport fields to reach the Diamond section. After you have finished this section, the statue at (13/1) gives you +1 level. You can find 14 Megacredits here.

Castle Basenji (A1 8/8)

Enemies: Were Wolf, Wizard, Cult Leader
Free the prisoners in the dungeon. One of them tells you the password for Lvl 2.
The scrolls improve your resistance against the elements or your statistics, but the scrolls of Death will kill you. The Scroll of Insight lies on the pedestal at Level 3 (3/9). When you return it to Arie (A1 11/5), he gives you the Amulet of the Northern Sphinx.

Northern Sphinx (B1 12/8)

Enemies: Earth Golem, Stone Golem, Mummy
In the Dungeon you can find five riddles. They tell you the name of the Sphinx. This is the password for Lvl 2.
You will find a Human Throne, a Dwarf Throne... Let the appropriate characters sit on them to get 500.000 EXP. You can also learn some useful spells here. To open the sarcophags, you have to be very strong.

Cave of Illusion (B4 2/15)

Enemies: Water Golem
The spear traps in this cave are only illusions. Unfortunately, the treasures are illusions, too.
The skulls will increase your statistics for gems. At Level 4 (7/14) you can get the Key to the Tower of High Magic for 300 gems.

Darzog's Tower (D3 4/13)

Enemies: Carnage Hand, Darzog Clone, Darzog
The green squares will take away all your SP AND teleport you back to the 1st floor, so use Jump and Teleport to avoid them. You can search the grates in the 1st floor.
After you have defeated Darzog at Lvl 3, go to Lvl 4 and press the buttons behind the tapestries to open secret passages. In a corner you will find a ladder. Go down and free Crodo (finally!)
When you have got the excavation permit from the Royal Advisor and retrieved the Xeen Slayer Sword, return here and enter the clouds to reach Castle Xeen.

Clouds of Xeen

Teleport north where the signs tells you to do so.
You must win the four games at(12/22), (11/25), (15/24) and ((14/26) (you need not do anything, just choose the character with the highest statistics). Then the Gamesmaster at (12/29) will trade your prizes for a Xeen Cupie Doll.

Castle Xeen

Enemies: Xeen's Guard, Xeen's Pet, Lord Xeen
To enter the Castle, you need a Xeen Cupie Doll. In the Castle destroy the four Elemental Machines in the corners to disarm some of the traps. Make your way to Level 4, destroy the Guard Making Machine and kill Xeen's Pet. Then you will finally face Lord Xeen. He can only be hurt with the Xeen Slayer Sword. After every attack, pass it to the next character (or if you used the "I lost it"-cheat, you can equip everybody with a Xeen slayer Sword).
Congratulations, you have solved Might and Magic 4! King Burlock will tell you that "your fate lies on the Darkside".

Optional Dungeons:

Volcano Cave (E1 15/2)

Enemies: Demon, Devil
No problems here. At Level 2, push all 4 switches to create a path over the lava.

Dragon Cave (E1 14/12)
