Inside the Dungeon

Enter the dungeon through the poster on the wall of the empty prison cell. You will then be on the second floor of the dungeon and you should see a band of muggers (level 6) You can continue your way across the channel of rooms and follow a balcony which then leads onto the cockroach drones (level 8.) To continue onto different monsters, you will have to go down the flight of stairs which are located at the center of the balcony.

The ground level is full of cockroach drones (level 8) and cockroach workers (level 56.) Cockroach workers are larger in size than the cockroach drones and are good experience for medium-leveled players. Along the ground level are cells in which cockroaches inhabit.

If you go up the flight of stairs on the opposing side of where you first entered, you will come across more cockroach drones (level 8.) This opposing side is larger and has larger rooms than the side you were previously on. If you go deep into these rooms you may encounter cockroach drones (level 8), cockroach workers (level 56), or cockroach soldiers (level 83) These rooms are the only place where cockroach soldiers are located, and cockroach soldiers are the biggest and toughest of the cockroaches that inhabit the Stronghold of Player Safety dungeon.

A much larger cockroach

The third level of the dungeon is practically a balcony. On the top floor, you can encounter cockroach workers and cockroach soldiers.
