Northern docking platform

Zehlon Reach is a large swampy area that dominates much of the central northern shore of the island of Istan. There is a large fishing village towards the northwestern corner of this area and a small docking platform towards the northern center. The docking platform appears to be used by corsairs and seems to be maintained by a shady trader. In the southeastern portion of Zehlon Reach, there are some old ruins of what appears to be several ancient buildings.

Getting there[edit]

Zehlon Reach is situated to the northeast of Jokanur Diggings. The primary quest that will first bring a character here is the Honorable General.

Many other secondary quests will lead to and take place here, such as Student Jin and Student Sousuke, To Dye For, and the Cult of the Stone Face.

Gw2logo.png The Guild Wars 2 Wiki has an article on Zehlon Breach.
  • The Ridgeback Skales, Stormseed Jacarandas and Skale Blighters all have different levels. Watch their levels before attacking if your party is still at a low level.
  • The eastern half of the area has many Skale Blighters capable of spreading Disease. Consider Condition removal or Health Regeneration skills.
  • Approaching the small island with corpses (to the east of the village) will spawn 4 Corsairs.
  • There are hidden Mandragors in several locations: northwest of Jokanur Diggings (outpost), north of Cliffs of Dohjok exit, and the central Plant-infested area.
  • Complete exploration of this area contributes approximately 3.1% to the Elonian Cartographer title track.
  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 243 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 222 to 264 foes.
    • If approached, Suspicious Hermit turns hostile once his dialogue runs out. It is easy to leave the area before he becomes fully hostile and not notice. He is in the NE most tip of the map.
    • Starting from Blacktide Den or Beknur Harbor and arriving here via Cliffs of Dohjok will enable a party of 8 instead of 4.
Bug Bug.For non-Nightfall characters (only), there are several quest-related spawns or triggers that are incorrect. These quests cannot be done by non-Nightfall characters yet they affect the instance.
