The Cerulean Hills

The Cerulean Hills map Spoilers!

The rich farmland southeast of Stormreach is known as the Cerulean Hills. Recently, refugees have been pouring into the Harbor from these lush sloped plains due to the invasion from the Grul Tribe of orcs and their bugbear allies. This adventure zone is accessed through The Harbor, out the southeastern gates near the southern docks. It replaced the Postern Gate Wilds in Module 4. In Update 46, four entrances for dungeons from The Lost Gatekeepers and a portal to The Gatekeepers' Grove were added.

The Cerulean Hills is a level 3 Wilderness Adventure Area, allowing characters from levels 1 through 6 full XP rewards.

The Cerulean Hills Explorers XP


Discover the magnificent sites and dark haunts of the Cerulean Hills.

Each Explorer is worth 150 XP, the bonus for finding all of them is 525 XP.


  • Find Nash Braza's caravan - A dusty caravan blocks the road to the west.
  • Find the road to the east - The road continues east into territory controlled by hostile Grul tribe orcs.
  • Discover the caravan's fate - This caravan has been looted and ripped to pieces. Judging from the debris this happened quite recently.
  • Find the garden of stone - Carved statues of hideous creatures line this white marble dais.
  • Find the cave-in - The old mine here has long since collapsed, someone must have dug one too many times.
  • Find the wolf feeding grounds - Half-gnawed bones, tufts of fur, and splotches of blood cover the ground here.
  • Find the Temple of Arawai - The ancient white marble ruins are all that remains of the once great Temple to Arawai, goddess of agriculture. Offerings from desperate farmers are still left and from the looks of the land here, rewarded.
  • Find the Tree of Sorrow - A lone tree dots this hill. Legend says that when the temple was ransacked, Arawai cried a single tear and where it landed this tree grew.
  • Find the ancient vineyard - Rotted wood overgrown with several vines now resides where a majestic vineyard once stood. A paper label on the ground reads, 'Vintage 978 YK'.
  • Find Talloak's dam - Several white marble stones have been piled up here as a makeshift dam.

Dungeon Entrances[edit]

  • Find the Quickfoot safehouse - The faint sounds of an argument over the price of several objects escapes from the cave. You're fairly certain none of the items being discussed were legally obtained.
  • Find the Orc's prison - Water rushes down from the rocks above, the crash echoing in your ears.
  • Find the scorpions lair - Large holes and drag marks mar the ground in front of this cave.
  • Find the orc camp - From the loud boisterous sounds coming from this cave, you guess there must be dozens of orcs inside.

Note: These do not include entrances to the U46 dungeons, each of which is connected to a Landmark explorer point.

After completion: You have finished exploring the Cerulean Hills.
