Ferndale lies southeast of the most prominent of the Great Kurzick Houses, House zu Heltzer. It features a central space that is relatively flat and open compared to the rest of the Echovald Forest. It is currently heavily populated by the Dredge, with Wardens mostly confined to the southern areas. The northwestern slopes are populated by Mantids due to the streams in that area.


[edit] Getting there

All of the primary quests acquired in House zu Heltzer lead through here, including the Defenders of the Forest, Defend Fort Aspenwood, and the Jade Quarry.

Most of the secondary quests from the town will also require the player to travel through this area.
