Description

Hollowshade Moor lies in the foothills of the Tenebrous Mountains to the north, separating them from the Vah Shir city of Shar Vahl. The Moor itself is a hotly contested area between the grimlings, the owlbears, and the sonic wolves. Their constant struggle frequently breaks out into full scale battle between the groups, with the Vah Shir intent on protecting their own while fighting a war further north.

Dangers

The entire zone is covered with wandering creatures, which makes it dangerous to hunt anywhere but near the edges. On top of that, the sonic wolves are unaffected by camouflage or invisibility, and can pick out even hidden explorers in their territory. Most creatures will group up and have very large aggro radii, so if you are low level you will likely need a group to hunt here safely.

Benefits

This is a good zone with lots of monsters suitable for the level range described. It is possible to hunt solo or in groups here equally well.
