Poor poor Bast... A land where life is wiped clean as soon as it start to grow...


Bast is an abandoned outpost in the northeast region of the map. The Holy Nation and the United Cities hold frequent battles in the region surrounding Bast. While Bast has no loot, the surrounding area is host to many battle scenes where Holy Nation sentinel and United City samurai gear, as well as Basic First Aid Kits, can be obtained in abundance. 

Battles occur in the immediate region surrounding bast, primarily to the South. Limited evidence shows that United City samurais are more frequently the victor in battle, leaving the battlefield relatively safe for non-human characters to loot, not so much for the poor, however.


There are no Major Towns in Bast. This zone does not spawn Camps.

Minor Outposts[]

Nests are temporary locations which can spawn randomly and typically belong to Animals.
