Adventurer, eh? Guess you'll be on your way down to the Ashlands then. Ain't ever seen anyone go to the Ashlands and come back out. It's a one way journey an' whatever's down there ain't worth dying for...

I certainly wouldn't go without a crab.

–Barman, Crab Town

The Pits East is the home of the Crab Raiders. In Crab Town, the home of the Queen of the Crab Raiders, players can become "crabbed" and Unique Recruit Lumi can be found.

Crabs, as well as Crab Raider patrols, are common in this Zone. Players may be amused to watch the horror which Crab Raiders experience when wild Crabs are hostile towards them.
