Stone-talkers from the Ca-Uxith tribe have watched over Rockgrove's xanmeer for centuries. Although the stone stays silent, the chaos roiling beneath it could erupt at any moment. Before this occurs, a stone-talker will see the signs and prepare the tribe's defenses.
Rockgrove

Rockgrove, known to the locals as Krona-Konu, is a ruin located in the southeastern reaches of Blackwood.

Layout[edit]

Walled Sanctuary[edit]

Walled Sanctuary

This is the starting area.

A monkey is sitting on one of the stone benches near the cooking fire in the starting area. The gate leading to the Overgrown Thoroughfare lies on the eastern end of the first area.

Overgrown Thoroughfare[edit]

A large courtyard containing the first group of enemies. There is a lantern mantis off to the south, and two gas blossoms off to the east. You'll witness two Sul-Xan Militants each sacrificing an innocent soul as you approach.

Ruined Springs[edit]

This is a small enclosed courtyard with several glowing pools in the corners. Oaxiltso can be found here guarding the entrance to the xanmeer.

Xanmeer Root-Crypts[edit]

The interior of the xanmeer connects to a massive subterranean cavern. Its passages appear to be living quarters but are swarming with Sul-Xan enemies. In the second-last chamber you will find a reading room at the bottom of the stairs; the lore book Havocrel: Strangers from Oblivion can be found lying on a table here.

Xanmeer Pinnacle[edit]

The summit of the xanmeer is reached by navigating through the interior of the complex. It is a wide platform where Flame-Herald Bahsei guards an open Oblivion Gate.

Tower of the Five Crimes[edit]

Tower of the Five Crimes

Entering the Oblivion Gate leads to the domain of Xalvakka, a lava-covered path leading to her tower. The tower has several levels which you will be forced to ascend during the fight to avoid being consumed by the rising lava.

The Challenge Banner for Veteran Hard Mode is located at the end of the bridge leading to Xalvakka's tower, to the left as you approach.
