A view of the area

The Shattered Ravines is a formation of ridges and trenches that seems to be comprised of both natural rock formations and destroyed ruins. The ruins could well be a remnant of the ancient civilization of the Forgotten, possibly centered at the spot where the Lair of the Forgotten now stands.

Getting there[edit]

While doing the quest Horde of Darkness, players will most likely enter from Joko's Domain to the south. Lair of the Forgotten (towards the north) provides the most convenient outpost for future travel to this area.

  • There are three ranger bosses in this area, all of them can be attacked while inside a Junundu. It may be a good idea to bring three Signets of Capture and get them all. Take note to put those signets in skill slots that do not prevent the most important Junundu skills.
  • These quests affect the spawns in this area:
  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 310 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 278 to 341 foes.
    • With quests you can reach just over 400 foes.
    • With the exception of the rocky areas to the northwest and southeast, most of the area can be vanquished while inside a Junundu.
    • Watch out for hidden insect groups in the eastern portions and be careful of getting swarmed by two or more groups.
    • Active quests in this area increases the number of Margonite groups.
