Tory Ravine can be accessed on the southwest side of Belvast Island through the Mykeeness Cliffs. When entering it for the first time, regardless of your progression in the storyline, you will see a one-time cutscene related to Generation 24.
According to some residents at the Commonwealth of Belvast, Tory Ravine was a frequently visited place until an unknown body washed up on shore. It is not known what species the body belonged to, only that it was not human. Ever since that incident, the people of Belvast stopped visiting and Tory Ravine became a heavily restricted area. The stream flowing from Tory Ravine to Scathach Beach seems to indicate that there may be an ominous presence there, most likely caused by the mysterious corpse.
Areas of Interest
Surrounded by the unhealthy-looking Shadow of Yggdrasil, the Decaying Swamp is dangerous to unsuspecting travelers. While mobs only attack in self-defense, players might be confused by the tree-like Cravan who otherwise pretend to be inanimate like Mimics. In addition, the toxic water damages on contact.
Standing in the Decaying Swamp ponds for three seconds inflicts Decaying Swamp Poisoning, which poisons characters for 250 damage per second for 10 seconds. This causes a total of 2500 HP damage, and can knock characters unconscious.
- This can be prevented either by using a Cravan Liquid dropped by the endemic Cravan, or by wearing equipment with Poison Immunity Equipment Combination Effects.
- Note that acquiring Poison Immunity while already under the effects of Decaying Swamp Poisoning will not cancel the remaining duration, but using a Cravan Liquid will.
Successfully surviving the swamp water will enable the player to make use of the Metallurgy spots underneath. Note that the spots can be visually obstructed by the swamp water.
