Turbine point icon.png Requires access to adventure pack: The Ruins of Gianthold
The main story arc, The Reaver's Bane, is bestowed by Cydonie, Agent of Argonessen in the west side of the Marketplace when your character reaches level 10. Upon receiving this quest, Thaden the Farshifter can then transport you to the Gianthold - a small city zone. From there you are able to enter the Ruins of Gianthold zone.

The Ruins of Gianthold is a level 13 Wilderness Adventure Area, allowing characters level 10 through 18 full XP rewards. For the epic version, see Ruins of Gianthold (epic).

This heroic level area also saw some changes with U17.

  • New shrines were added in some areas, such as near the Entrance to the Troll Lair.
  • Minor terrain changes, though they are mostly cosmetic. The usual paths have not changed.
  • Monster spawns have been changed, and there seems to be a general increase in counts, and locations. In some cases, such as near active rare encounters, respawning seems to happen until the rare is killed.
  • The farshifter in Gianthold can teleport you to the Epic or the Heroic version of the three faction locations. (Storm's Eye, Storm's Heart, Storm's Fist)
    • You can only be shifted to one you have already found.
    • These are not the same as the old purple diamond locations, which have been removed from the map.
    • The Icon for this NPC is a yellow + instead of the green * used to go back to Stormreach.
    • Using the NPC gives you the normal quest entry dialog box, allowing you to choose the usual options.

[edit] Rare Encounters

Each Rare Encounter is worth 800 XP, with a 4,000 Bonus XP for locating everything.

There are 3 other possible chests:

  • There is an Ancient Flayer with a locked chest at the top of Crystal Spin Peak, which has a unlock DC of 45(?). The Ancient Flayer is always there and is not counted as a rare encounter.
  • There is an unlocked chest at the Aurum Supply Depot; smash the breakables to trigger the Aurum Supply Master and 2 Gold Concord Clerics ambush and kill them to unlock the chest.
  • Occasionally, there is an unlocked chest on a small ledge above the entrance to A Cry for Help. Kill the Zakya Cult Archers around the ledge, jump up via the crystals (or take the very long way around) and run around the ledge to the east. There are 3 Zakya on a small platform only accessible from up on the ledge. The chest will only appear if there is a non-archer among the 3 Zakya.
  • There is also a rare chance of an unlocked chest just northeast of Pride Leader Xilic - where there usually are two giants.
