A view inside

Blacktide Den is a hub for nefarious activities and shady dealings on Istan. It is sufficiently far from the centers of civilization on the island for it to be relatively ignored by the authorities.

This campsite at the edge of the Lahtenda Bog is a haven for all manner of shady characters and black market business. From corsairs attempting to escape justice to tomb-robbers looking to pawn their ill-gotten booty, to the odd Necromancer simply interested in the death and decay of the swampy bayou to the south, Blacktide Den provides the perfect meeting place: dark, dangerous and remote.

Getting there[edit]

The primary quest Following the Trail will lead the party to the mission outpost, which is situated at the southwestern corner of the Cliffs of Dohjok.

  • Together with the Beknur Harbor, this is one of the first accessible locations where Nightfall characters are allowed a party size of 8.
  • Complete exploration of this outpost will yield about 0.2% to the Elonian Cartographer title track.
Bug Bug.Map travel to this outpost may show a warning about the party size being too large, despite it allowing 8 party members.
