Black Water Swamp

The Black Water Swamp is aimed at Newbies. The toughest thing I fought was a Large Lizardman in the Large Hollowed Hovel (Lh) and he gives about 10K xp. The biggest xp kill was the Black rotting shambling mound in the Rotting Vegitation (Rv) at about 20K xp.

To the east of the Swamp you'll find a lizardman village swarming with guards, crocodiles and plenty of tough mobs for a Newbie. To the north are the Kobold Caves, again full to the brim with low-level mobs for you to kill.

You need to be able to breath under water to travel into Underwater in the Muck (Uw).

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 9sws3ws2w2s2w3sws5w2sws2w3s6wswn3ws4wnwsw2n3w3nw5n2w n7w2nwsws3wndn2e4n3w2n7w2n.
