Surrounding Locations

North

Upon traveling north from the spawn location, players will eventually reach a rowboat, offering a means of transportation to other destinations. Additionally, in the northern part of the island, players will come across a gathering of sand crabs, providing a suitable training ground for those at lower levels. Furthermore, scattered across the ground in this area, players will notice seaweed piles, which can be collected and utilized for various purposes. Take advantage of this resourceful environment as you continue your exploration of the island.

South

Heading south from the home teleport spawn, players will traverse alongside a picturesque river, where they will catch glimpses of shimmering blue dragon scales strewn along the way. Continuing their journey, they will eventually arrive at a captivating beach/desert area, replete with the presence of formidable Hill Giants. Amidst this captivating landscape, players will also notice the entrance to a tunnel, beckoning them to explore further.

South-East

In the southeastern corner of Home Island, players will encounter a vibrant community of TzHaar residents. Here, players will also come across a prominent Cave Entrance, which serves as the gateway to the majestic city of TzHaar.

East

Upon venturing east from the home spawn, players will encounter a diverging path that branches in three directions. Heading north along the path will lead to a low-level mining area, offering ample opportunities for resource gathering. Within this area, players will find a beginner's small furnace and an anvil, essential for honing their smithing skills. Continuing further east from the mining area, players will reach the Gem Rock pit, where sparkling Gem Rocks await to be mined and collected. Alternatively, heading south from the path junction will guide players to the melee shop assistant and a series of stalls, providing an ideal environment to practice thieving skills and earn valuable GP (gold pieces). Should players choose to forge ahead on the path beyond the thieving stalls, they will eventually find themselves at the entrance of the beginner slayer cave. However, it is essential to exercise caution along the way as hobgoblins pose a potential threat in this area. Stay vigilant and be prepared to confront these formidable adversaries as you venture deeper into the cave.

West

When heading in the southwestern region you can come across the Crazy Archaeologist boss and various other NPCs.
