The Silverwastes is an explorable zone in the Maguuma Wastes. This area marks the first advance of the Pact toward the Elder Dragon Mordremoth and its army of mordrem. One of its lieutenants, the Mordrem Vinewrath, is trying to take control of the Silverwastes for its master.

The Silverwastes also boasts a large network of underground caverns, which are mostly inhabited by skritt, who are lending their tunnels to the Pact forces to allow them to travel faster around the area. From time to time, they will close due to the presence of bandits who fled Fort Vandal looking for a new place to set up camp.

Notes[edit]

  • Rich Mithril Veins operate differently than in other areas. Here, you can farm one normally (to 8 strikes plus bonuses). However, the next and all following veins produce only 2 strikes. There may be a timer on this effect.
  • There may be a limit to the number of Orichalcum nodes and Ancient Saplings you can farm. If you take note of a node, intending to come back and harvest it later, it may disappear. This seems to be caused by harvesting another node of the same type elsewhere in the zone. So, you still get your orichalcum ore and/or ancient logs, just from a different location.
