|Area Level|| |
Hike the mountains to the frozen Gazluk Plateau.
Gazluk is a frozen tundra region beyond the Kur Mountains. The area is mostly known for the once public Gazluk City and the tragic incident of Prestonbule. New Prestonbule Cave is the only friendly zone. Outside of this there are several other towns, but these towns are inhabited by either Orcs, or Incorporeal Creatures. The Gazluk underground is crisscrossed by a maze of interconnected caverns. Underneath Gazluk City, the massive stronghold of Gazluk Keep can be found.
- Kur Mountains
- A frozen mountain region sometimes considered the foothills of the Gazluk plateau. The portal to Kur Mountains can be found along the southeast edge of Gazluk's outer valley.
- A swampland between Gazluk, Rahu, and northern oceans. The portal to Povus can be found in the far north-northeast.
While inside the region, the player character gradually loses Body Heat over time. Losing all of one's Body Heat causes Frostbite and eventually Hypothermia. Frostbite reduces direct damage dealt by 20%. If frostbitten for too long, Hypothermia sets in, which deals Health damage continuously, disables health and power regeneration, and reduces movement speed by 50%. Both effects can be healed by taking refuge in a warm area (for example near a lit Smouldering Fire in Kur, or near a Glowy Yellow Crystal outcropping in Gazluk). Left untreated, hypothermia will eventually kill you.
Body Heat depletes much more rapidly while underwater.
The rate at which one loses Body Heat is affected by Indirect Cold Mitigation, which can be improved through gear and abilities
Similar to the smoldering campfires scatted throughout Kur, an Emergency Warmth Fire or Basic Campfire can restore body heat. Ukorga can teach humanoid form players how to craft these fires through Carpentry, while Spot teaches beast form players the same through Foraging. Emergency Fires can also be purchased from several vendors, including Hogan, Ukorga, Red, and Rick Snapley.
Varying amounts of Body Heat can also be restored through several Fire Magic, First Aid, Mentalism, Animal Handling (Polar Bear and similar bears' Cheap Trick), Priest and Warden abilities or by using a Simple Blanket. Finally, Cold Resistance and Orcish Thickskin Potions can boost your total Body Heat capacity, allowing you more time away from heat sources.
Points of Interest
New Prestonbule Cave
The New Prestonbule Cave was once a cavern used by the residents of Prestonbule as a storehouse. After the Orc raid on the recently established town, a number of survivors opted to seek shelter in the cave instead of trying to return to the southern Council Lands. Most of the former residents of Prestonbule have now died, but a group of friendly travelers has set up camp inside. Their camp inside the cave provides amenities such as a tanning rack and a campfire.
This Council settlement was a once-peaceful town built at the edge of the Gazluk plateau. After a new Orc faction took over Gazluk City, the town was attacked. The remaining buildings are now inhabited by hostile Horrific Ghosts.
As the name suggests, this is a large castle-like town populated by various factions of usually hostile Orcs. The entrance to Gazluk Keep can be found within its walls.

These Glowy Yellow Crystals might provide some warmth, but travelers should stay away from them if they value their health. There are several groupings of them placed throughout the map.
The animal camp is home to two animal NPCs so far: Fluffikins, and Trekker, as well as two humanoids: Aven and Aralorn. This camp is also surrounded by the glowy yellow crystals, so watch out for them. A Candle Station can be found at the Animal Camp.
