The Sceptre:

Additionally, you can kill different creatures throughout the dungeon to obtain the parts of the Skull Sceptre. It allows you to teleport yourself 5 times to Barbarian Village. The sceptre is made out of a total of 4 parts. Below you can find a table with the different creatures you need to kill to get the parts.

Skull sceptre

To make the sceptre use one skull half on the other half. Then, attach the 2 sceptre halves to each other. Finally add the skull to the sceptre to make the skull sceptre. You are only allowed to have one Skull sceptre at a time, but you can have more parts in your bank.
