Caledon Forest, the sylvari homeland, spreads outward from the base of the Pale Tree. Sadly, this vast green land knows little peace. Orrian undead emerge from the surf, threatening the Grove.

— In-game description

Caledon Forest is a low level zone in the Maguuma Jungle. The Grove, which is the sylvari capital, is located at the southern end of the forest. Sylvari characters begin in Caledon Forest after completing their introductory story. Many settlements from different races, such as the hylek and quaggan, can be found across the various jungles and waterways.

According to Gullik Oddsson, it contains many temple ruins and is inhabited by so-called "great cats", from his accounts from when he went hunting there once for the cats' pelts. Dougal Keane also has visited this site in the past as well.

Getting there[edit]

  • From The Grove: The portal is in the north of The Grove, on the third level up. The portal is near where the map says "Caledon Path", north of the Marshaling Field, and leads into the Village of Astorea.
  • From Metrica Province: The portal to Caledon Forest is in the east of Metrica Province, east of the Hexane Regrade Waypoint. This waypoint can be found east of "Hexane Regrade" on the map. The portal comes out in Caledon Forest in the Trader's Green, just west of the Town of Cathal Waypoint.
