Jade Flats (Kurzick)
Melandru's Hope is the part of Echovald Forest that has the largest amount of flourishing fauna, thus the name, giving hope that the effects of the Jade Wind are finally being overcome. Unfortunately, this area has large populations of Mantids, Dredge, and Wardens.
This area is largely optional if not for the Jade Quarry primary quest that leads to Jade Flats (Kurzick). It's also possible that one may be following the secondary quests of Rhythm Drinker Drum, The Beak of Darkness, Artistic Endeavors, or Charting the Forests when one first enters this area.
