Description

Veeshan's Peak is found in Skyfire Mountains, inside of a large gate guarded by elder wyverns. Veeshan's Peak is the ancient fortress of the Ring of Scale, the mighty rulers of all dragonkind.

Dangers

Veeshan's Peak is one of the hardest zones in the Kunark expansion. It has since been superceded by much harder zones in future expansions, but is no joke in itself.

There are two main dangers in this zone. One is that there are several types of monsters that wander the outer regions of the zone. Killing these creatures cause ones to replace them almost immediately, so your best bet is to keep moving further into the zone.

The second danger is that the dragons that roam the zone are incredibly powerful. Given that the only escape is to fight them and make it out the other side alive, you'd better be capable of taking on level 65 dragons that fight the way dragons do in this zone. There are also a couple that are known to wander, so you run the risk of being "jumped" by a second dragon when engaging the first. Good luck to you, and have your clerics ready to camp fast...

Benefits

This zone is known to have the most powerful weapons and items in the game, as it is the highest level zone in the Kunark expansion.

Travelling To and From Veeshan's Peak
