- There are 7 hidden Oni groups (each consisting of 3 to 5 of them):
- Southwest of Grenth's shrine, at the southern end of the curving path at the western edge.
- In the inlet bordering the landmass west of Grenth's shrine.
- Short distance from the Gyala Hatchery exit, near the shrine.
- In a nook at the northeastern corner.
- At the end of the eastern path that leads away from the Aurios Mines.
- At both ends of the bridge just north of the petrified leviathan marked on the area map as a dark green square (see map), these ones have a chance to drop Ungues of the Oni.
- Arius, Dark Apostle is hostile to other groups and depending on how fast you can reach his location, he may already have been killed by other mobs.
- Wavecrest Stonebreak and Talous the Mad will fight each other when their patrol paths intersect.
- The eastern side of the central area contains actual water - a rarely seen thing in the Jade Sea region.
- This area has one boss of each profession available in Guild Wars Factions.
- Complete exploration of this area will yield about 2.4% to the Canthan Cartographer title track.
- Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests requires defeating around 240 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 229 to 271.
- Take note of the small Outcast groups that run quickly along their patrol paths.
- It may be possible that this area is named after Elder Rhea, although the reason is not known.
