Deep Dark Forest and the Pit

Ahh… the Deep Dark Forest and the Pit. Nice relaxed stroll through dimly lit trees with happy creatures prancing and dancing, right? Not even close. While training in the Deep Dark Forest is the same as it has been everywhere else, just stronger creatures and more experience for it, training in the Pit is the opposite and the reason is Quetzalcoati or Q-Bird for short. It's nice bouncing back and forth when you train, cuts down on the thinking what your clicking, something that you can't do in the Pit.

The Deep Dark Forest requires an Intelligence of 198, 220, or 242 depending on your race to enter. While walking half way across the world of Shilla is possible to get to the DDF, it's best to use the teleport location.

In the Deep Dark Forest section of this area you will find the following creatures: Griffen, Harpy, Deer, Imp, and the Archer. In the Pit section you will face, other than Quetzalcoati, Gorgon, Serpentfly, Wyvern, Basilisk, and again the Imp.

The Deep Dark Forest is the area that usually follows the Ogre Cave for training purposes. You quickly move on to the Pit after that. There are a few people who then move on to the inner portion of the Maze, but most just go straight to the Dungeon.

A lot of gameplay occurs in this area. Many guild and specialty quest have parts that require you to return to Deep Dark Forest or the Pit. On top of that it is the entry area for the Elven Village/Yggdrasil and there are many reasons you visit there.

Once you have reached the pinnacle of strength and obtained the Spirit alignment then access to the Baleful Swamp will appear at the bottom of The Pit.

Numerous creatures call this area home as well. Here is a quick look at them.
