The Eternal Grove is a sacred location for the Kurzicks. This deep part of the Echovald Forest is where the Forever Trees grow -- the trees that contain the magic to transform Kurzick volunteers into Kurzick Juggernauts. The actual explorable area is much larger than the area accessible during the mission, minus the mission starting location (the gates to which are locked). The primary inhabitants in this area are hostile Plants and the Wardens, with a small group of Mantids around a small stream and lake near the center.

Getting there[edit]

Exit from Vasburg Armory or travel north from Amatz Basin via Mourning Veil Falls.

  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 241 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 226 to 256 foes.
    • The Wardens and Mantis are hostile to each other. If you let them fight it out, it can save around 17 kills.
    • Take note that when approaching the seemingly solitary Flower Spiritgarden, at least 8 other Wardens will drop down from the trees behind it.
    • There are 4 hidden Oni groups (each consisting of 3 of them):
      • At the southern edge of the area directly south of Vasburg Armory.
      • Close to the western edge, in an underpass amidst several Warden groups.
      • A short distance southeast from the Eternal Grove outpost.
      • In the small lake near the southern edge.
  • Complete exploration of this area yields approximately 1.9% towards the Canthan Cartography title.
