- Under the large bridge over the river near Gran Soren - an entrance in the bridges foundations, south of the Storage Shed (Catacombs Rear Passage 2) connecting to the northwestern part of the Catacomb's 'Third Level Underground'
- An entrance close to the Collapsed Meeting Room in the Estan Plains outside Gran Soren (Catacombs Rear Passage 1), connecting to the southestern part of the 'Second Level Underground'.
The path to the lowest level is barred by locked gates - the gate on the first floor, next to the lift, is unlocked by the First Key To Salvation, the double gates on the second level, leading to a group of Stout Undead, is unlocked by the Second Key To Salvation. Within the lowest level is the Confessional Chamber, locked behind a magic door.
There are numerous chests, and sarcophagi in the tombs. Plants are unknown here, and mushrooms are uncommon. Skulls, curatives, and lesser items such as Empty Flasks are common. All kinds of environmental objects such as Pots, Explosive Barrels, boxes and Large Stones are all abundant.
Catacomb Gold is unique to the area's deep level ore deposits.

- Minor quests :
On entering from the Deos Hills entrance
- "The crypt was fashioned ages ago, before the Faith came to Gransys."
- "... Long ago, when the people worshipped the old gods, the gods of nature."
- "... I suspect it's why they returned their dead to the soil. To the Earthgod."
- "Few come to offer prayers for those who rest here in the catacombs. That their souls might be cleansed and born anew in the coming generations."
- "If ever it was the seat of a god, that time has surely past."
On the inhabitants
- "Be careful -- the walking dead are all around us."
- "Undead sleep beneath the earth!"
- "To judge from the beasts that dwell here, the place holds a dark power."
On the sarcophagi
- "I believe some of the coffins are booby trapped."
- "If you see gas leaking, 'tis likely a gas trap."
On the lamps
- "The lamplight will make spotting traps easier."
By the hidden room
- "Would that we had some manner of foothold..."
- "I'd wager we could scale that wall."
In the natural tunnels
- "If monsters appear, let's take advantage of the uneven tarrain."
- The Catacombs may be explored at any time, even before the quests Seeking Salvation and Rise of the Fallen.
- Falls down the lift shaft pit are always fatal (even when mitigating fall damage with Skull Splitter). However a fall from the upper to lower level onto the lowered lift plate is relatively safe but painful.
- The Catacombs teem with Undead - any form of Holy based weapon or magic is recommended. Fire is almost equally as effective.
- There is a hidden room on the First Floor of the Catacombs, which pawns will draw attention to - vocations with limited jumping skills can make use of a nearby indestructible crate to gain access to the room via a broken high wall section.
- A number of the Sarcophagi are booby trapped and may inflict Curse upon opening.
- The underground geography does not line up with the overground exits - the exit from the 3rd Level Underground (usually first found during Seeking Salvation) should be far to the west of the exit under the bridge near Gran Soren - almost under the Wilted Forest in fact.
