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


Bast is a zone named after a now abandoned outpost of the United Cities in the northeast region of the map.

The Holy Nation and the United Cities continue frequent battles in the region surrounding the former settlement of Bast. While the city itself has no loot, the surrounding area witnesses many battle scenes where battles occur in the immediate region surrounding Bast, primarily to the South.

It's unclear which of the 2 giants are more frequent the victor in battle due to contradicting evidence, so it's best to keep an eye out if you are either a non-human or a poor/starving person.


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

Minor Outposts

These locations are typically small towns, villages, or faction bases.

These are places which do not have competent inhabitants. Ancient Locations are usually lost outposts or ruins. Beware: sometimes these locations contain territorial protectors such as Security Spiders.

Aesthetic Ruins

These locations show up on the map, although the player cannot interact with anything at this location.


Nests are temporary locations which can spawn randomly and typically belong to Animals. This zone has a maximum number of 4 nests. The numbers in closed brackets are the weight of nests.

Homeless Spawns

These are squads which spawn without being tied to a location, camp, or nest. This list is in order of likelihood. This zone has a homeless spawn rate multiplier of 1.6. The numbers in closed brackets are the weight of homeless spawns.
