The Red Fens

The Red Fens adpack icon.jpg
450 DP Requires access to adventure pack: The Red Fens

For years the Raveneye Clan has sold rare pearls to House Kundarak, but now their home is under attack. Repel the invasion by battling the denizens of a vast and dangerous swamp, then take the fight to the enemy's underwater base in a climactic finale!

Sahuagin have attacked the Red Fens, virtually wiping out the Drow clan that lives in the swamp.

Below are more details about the wilderness area and quests that make up this Adventure Pack.


The Red Fens map
Loading screen

This is a level 9 Wilderness Adventure Area, allowing characters from levels 6 through 13 for full XP gain. Exceeding the maximum character level requirement will reduce XP gain from Rare Encounter / Slayer / Explorer quests.

Within the wilderness are a chain of 4 Level 9 quests (Epic Level 21).

You can get to The Red Fens by talking to Ormar the Caravan Master in southwest House Kundarak.

  • Note that the entrance to the final quest, Into the Deep, (which unlocks after the other 3 missions) does not appear on the in-game map, as it is accessed via an NPC, Ta Prin, found in the far north of the area.

Raveneye Refuge Camp[edit]


There is no tavern in this area.

Note:The Claw of Vulkoor, Fathom the Depths, and The Last Stand must be completed (and turned in), in any order, to flag for the last quest, Into the Deep. You cannot red-door the final quest.

Unique Loot[edit]

The Red Fens is the source of some very good mid-level two-part gear sets. Red Fens Unique Loot.

Note: Each time you complete a quest, you will find named items from the quest end reward (NPC in the adventure area). It appears to be randomly selected from the pool for that quest. For example Fathom the Depths seems to always list 2 named items from the 4 possible for that mission. (This is an update to a previous behaviour from 2012)
