The Bloodstone Fen is a zone in the Heart of Maguuma, and the location of the Maguuma Jungle Bloodstone. The White Mantle has been active here since their exile from Kryta, studying the Bloodstone's properties and how to harness its power. Years of tampering with the Bloodstone have caused it to explode, devastating the surrounding area and leaving orbs of Unbound Magic suspended in the air.

The majority of the White Mantle and Pact personnel who survived the explosion have been driven mad, hungering for Bloodstone magic. The souls of humans sacrificed atop the Bloodstone have been freed and haunt the area as restless spirits, most notably the dangerous Justiciar Hablion. The White Mantle have also managed to take control of jade constructs, which are periodically brought into Bloodstone Maw to gather any lingering energy.

While in the Bloodstone Fen, players have access to special skills usable while gliding, channelling ambient magic to attack foes and maneuver while airborne.

Getting there[edit]

Unlike most zones, the Bloodstone Fen is not directly connected to neighbouring areas. In order to reach it, players can use one of the following methods:

Map resources[edit]

Gliding skills[edit]

Initially, players can only use Focused Magic. To unlock the other skills, they must be purchased from Natto aboard the Pride of the Pact airship. The purchase is for all characters and is only required once per account.

Note that the skills are implemented as a bundle, so banners will be dropped and cannot be held while gliding.

Events[edit]

Fragmented Wastes

This is a continuous series of events on the shattered top layer of Bloodstone Fen. Rifts open and expunge disorientated creatures that must be beaten down to force them back into the rift. When enough creatures have been defeated, the rift closes and the event succeeds. The rifts can be reached from the air, or via Rift Entrances that spawn in the Haunted Canyons and Bloodstone Maw areas.

Once eight of these rifts are closed, a group boss event will spawn at Bloodstone's Shell.

The spirits mostly come out at night. Mostly...

During the day, there will be two occasional events and a large number of White Mantle in the area.

Once night falls, the meta chain begins with an exorcism event to eliminate disturbed ghosts. Once completed, four Champion ghosts will spawn after one another and finally an escort event with Alari Doubleblade as she makes her way to Tomb of the Confessors.

Bloodstone Maw
The meta event appears every 60 minutes, but the timer appears to be instance-based rather than set on a global timer. The 60 minute countdown starts when the Unbound Guardian dies, after which the Jade Construct events will recommence. The first event of the chain starts at the
Waypoint (tango icon).png
Ground Zero Waypoint. Players need to defeat either the Champion Jade Armor or Champion Jade Bow before it absorbs the Bloodstone Stalagmite (which can be communed with for experience and 10 Unbound Magic once the Jade Construct is dead). Once the first event has been completed, a new one will appear at the lower level, followed by two more of the same format. The final event of this type features both the Armor and the Bow bosses.

After all of the Jade bosses have been defeated, a Legendary Unbound Guardian appears deep within the Cavern of Unseen Lights. Players have a time limit of 15 minutes to defeat it.
