At the southern border of embattled Kryta, the Kessex Hills are overrun with marauding centaurs. Wrecked human towns dot the countryside, and a heavily-patrolled road from Lion's Arch connects with lands to the south.

— In-game description

The Kessex Hills are a low-level zone in Kryta. It is directly south of Queensdale and borders the northern edge of the tengu lands known as the Dominion of Winds.

You Have Successfully Charted Kessex Hills


Greetings Explorer,

We write to you today to express our congratulations! You have successfully charted all of Kessex Hills. When you entered the region, it was but a blank slate, and now you leave it with no stone left unturned. Fantastic! Your persistence is admirable. Through centaurs, krait, bandits, and necrominions, you pressed onward. We urge you to continue your quest.

Gendarran Fields to the northeast offers new challenges. If you are looking for a change of scenery, head due west into the Brisban Wildlands. I'm sure this won't be the last time you hear from us.

Congratulations again.

—Tyrian Explorers Society
