Mysterious Darkshrines can be found in the Lord's Labyrinth. When activated, a shrine will impart a beneficial effect. There are four darkshrines in each run. They are found by pulling switches on the walls. The minimap will show the passageway, but it won't appear in the game itself. They will always appear on the upper part of the walls.
Activating a Mysterious Darkshrine plays a randomly selected voice-over line, spoken by Izaro. Depending on the player's game settings, a text transcript of the voice-over may be displayed in the chat log. These voice-overs should not be confused with the text that appears in the chat log to describe the effect of the activated shrine. There are three possible voice-over lines:
|A potent little gift from our primitive past.|
|Dark influences reside in dark places.|
|The pursuit of power can be a grotesque affair.|
