The Viewing Room is a chamber within Scholomance. It is accessed from the eastern branch of the large unnamed central chamber.
Inside the Viewing Room are several students, as well as their tutors, Marduk Blackpool and Vectus. These NPCs will not attack players passing through the room unless one of the players uses , which turns all the students into hostile non-elite skeletons.
Marduk Blackpool and Vectus no longer teach in these halls. After their downfall, Professor Slate was more than happy to fill the post left by his former comrades. He plans to teach students to become deadly alchemists, but the pupils don't seem too trilled about it.
- There is a persistent rumor on many servers that you can NOT talk to the students, Marduk nor Vectus, because doing so will cause them to aggro. This is a blatant fallacy, as the both the students and their peers will willingly chat with players without any hostility.
- You can, however, make the students and Vectus hostile by using an area of effect move around the students. (Example: Consecration from a paladin). However, they do not undergo their transformation into skeletons and you cannot loot the dead bodies of the students because they despawn.
