The Forest of Tethir

The Forest of Tethir is actually a small part of one of the three, major connecting zones in Shadowdale that tie everything together. The quickest way to walk back to Shadwodale from here is towards Reaching Woods, through the Sunset Mountains, Orofin, the Anauroch Desert and then through Daggerdale if you can fly or Port Miramor if you can't.

The zone contains many, tough mobs that a well equipped Expert should have no troubles with - all save one. The Lair of the Beast (Lb) is the resting place of the ancient and exceptionally large white dragon, Icehauptannarthanyx. You can't bash him and he'll cast meteor swarms and breathes ice - take a well prepared group if you intend to have a go.

There are only two other points of note. The Rockslide (Rc) may be a trap, it looks like a timed DT but I didn't stick around to find out. Lastly if you travel north from the Stone-walled Clearing (Sw) you find yourself in Fang Pass (Fp), not in Lake Neng Lookout (Ln) as you'd expect.

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 4s2wn4w4n2w3s8wswsw4s4wnwsw2s3wnw2uswsdswdsw2s3wsws w2s2ws2e6se9s.
