The Sunward Marches consists of rolling hilly and rocky terrain that comprises most of western Kourna, and together with the Marga Coast, the western coastline of Kourna. A large Kournan military garrison known as Morzek Garrison dominates the area, providing both security and trouble for the surrounding population.

Getting there[edit]

Upon arrival at the Command Post for the first time, Dunkoro will offer a series of quests that will lead you here to build up the set of NPCs that will ultimately settle in the Command Post.

  • There is a group of Rampaging Ntouka in the northwestern corner which is much larger than the average group size for this zone. It has a patrol route that heads south.
  • Kournan military outside of the garrison are level 16. Those inside the garrison itself are level 20.
  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 297 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 267 to 327 foes.
  • Complete exploration of this area contributes approximately 3.0% to the Elonian Cartographer title track.
    • The large group of Rampaging Ntouka, referred to above, is deadly if a party is not prepared for the damage spike.
    • To collect bounties, it is recommended to leave from Command Post going in a clockwise direction.
