The Dark Forest is level 30-45 zone in the game. Characters of lower levels can enter it still, but the combatants of this zone are dangerous, even more so to underleveled characters. If travelling through this wood, its recommended to do so during daylight hours. The forest is true to its name when the evening sets in. Though a torch or Light spell can give some light, the viewing distance is still limited.

  • For unknown reasons, the game suffers from extreme lag (down to 2 FPS) in the Dark Forest area when light/magic effects are active and Distant Land is enabled. So, when you are figthing off an enemy and using magic, you will find it difficult to move in the area. Therefore, in order to cross the Dark Forest, it is strongly advised to switch off Distant Land. To do so, the quickest way is through the console. Open the console with "~" and type "tll". To turn distant land back on, repeat.
