Interactive Map of The Battle Isles
The Battle Isles are an archipelago and the home of the Zaishen Order, and a sacred place for those who practice the art of war. It is located in the Clashing Sea.

All "high level" PvP arenas for Prophecies, Factions, and Nightfall are located within the Battle Isles. This is the place where players from all three chapters can meet, team up, and compete against each other.

Getting there[edit]

PvP characters are created directly in the Great Temple of Balthazar, the only town on these islands, and they cannot leave the Battle Isles, except to go to Fort Aspenwood or the Jade Quarry outposts.

Prior to unlocking a port town, the only Battle Isles locations roleplaying characters can access are Embark Beach and guild halls.
