Unwaking Waters (Luxon)
The Silent Surf stands as a prominent reminder of what once were the roiling waves of the Jade Sea, now frozen jade. This area probably had turbulent waves a long time ago, as evidenced by the large waves that were forever stopped in their travel to the shore. Three small islands stand amidst the jade waves, two of them connected by bridges to the mainland. Many forms of native wildlife roam the surface of the jade together with bands of Outcasts. The Afflicted have a presence here as well, and can be found near and on the two northern islands.
Several secondary quests that can be obtained in Leviathan Pits also take place here.

- These quests will affect the spawns in this area:
- Complete exploration of this area will yield about 2.8% to the Canthan Cartographer title track.
- Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 259 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 235 to 283 foes.
- Be wary of groups that move along long overlapping patrol paths, especially the Outcast groups, as some of them move very fast.
- There are 5 hidden Oni groups (each consisting of 3 or 4 of them):
- Around the southern bend from the Seafarer's Rest exit.
- In a corner at the end of the western path heading south away from Leviathan Pits.
- In the small nook east of the bridge that connects the eastern island to the larger landmass.
- South of Kenrii Sea Sorrow's location, along the cliff face.
- On the southernmost island (the path above the pier).
- The Afflicted, the Outcasts, and the Jade Sea wildlife are all hostile to one another and will fight each other if two different groups come within aggro range. If you take your time before moving to the more densely-patrolled areas, many of the groups may have already killed each other.
- Because so many groups kill each other, it is possible to complete the vanquish by killing only around 175 enemies, despite there being over 240.
- This area is one of three in Factions (the others being Mourning Veil Falls and Morostav Trail) where up to nine elites may be captured.
