The Olux Swamp is a dark and wet expanse surrounding the poor town of Olux. The swamp has been affected by the Decay, something that has caused the Light to dissapear in Gavel. The level 50 region contains a large amount of quests, and is noticeably much darker and more mountainous than the preceding Llevigar Plains. The enemies you face in the swamp mainly consist of the large spectrum of creatures native to the region, the most common type being different reptiles.
Points of Interest
- Olux - The large but impoverished city lies beyond timber walls in the north of the swamp. Along with having to endure the malevolent decay, the town is plagued by an unusual set of problems which includes citizens vanishing and crops withering. The town also features a lumber yard on its eastern side.
- Worm Holes - A collection of inexplicably large dirt caverns on the west side of the swamp. These burrows are the works of a slimy but menacing creature, a beast that could cause catastrophic sinkholes and damage across the province (as explored in The Worm Holes quest).
- Nest of the Grootslangs - A temple west of Olux in the side of a mountain holds the raid Nest of the Grootslangs (Quest Req: Realm of Light I - The Worm Holes). A team of 3-4 players is required to exterminate the infantile grootslangs that the Mother Wyrm laid eggs for.
A couple Silver mines exist in the swamp.
The swamp has a lot of Willow trees, though the Nemract Swamp may be a better place to gather them, as the enemies are notably weaker there.
Some Hops farms are also found in the region.
Although uncommon, even Piranhas can be fished in some of the swamp's rivers.
