The sprawling compound of Minister Cho's Estate encompasses a large part of central Shing Jea Island, taking up most of the land to the north of the central mountain range. The estate grounds have mostly been turned into a zoo of sorts, home to a myriad variety of exotic animals from all over the world of Tyria.

Getting there[edit]

The only entrance is from Ran Musu Gardens.

  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 210 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 183 to 220 foes.
    • There are no bosses in this area, avoid skills that recharge with Morale Boost (i.e. Resurrection Signet and Sunspear Rebirth Signet).

    • There is a chain of islands to the northeast with foes that cannot easily be seen from the beach. Likewise, there are more foes inside the caverns to the southeast.
