Gaia's Garden is a location in CrossWorlds. It is the largest area in the game, an immense jungle located to the northeast of Rookie Harbor. It can only be reached after completing Faj'ro Temple.

Gaia's Garden
Gaia's Garden is an enormous jungle and the largest area to be found on Shadoon. Its high trees stand towering beside the many rivers that stretch from the north-west to the south-east. In the center of the jungle a huge lake can be found with a small island that is home to the paradoxical Basin Keep.

In the south-east a small Shad tribe calls the trees their home. They mostly keep to themselves and live in harmony with the jungle. However, tensions between humans and Shad have arisen ever since humans built a power plant at the entrance of the Zir'vitar Temple. A vile infestation has spread in the north-east of the jungle which seems to originate from the power plant.

In the north one can find the mighty Grand Krys'kajo. A tree that stand above all other trees. However to get close to it, A Seeker first need to to finish the trials of both the Zir'vitar Temple and So'najiz Temple which stand beside the tree.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The area's main entrance from Autumn's Fall leads to a crossroads, where continuing straight will lead to the city of Basin Keep. The left and right paths wrap around the city, eventually meeting up at the three temples of the Grand Krys'kajo. Three sub-areas can be accessed from this ring path: the swampy Royal Grove to the northwest, the shady, mushroom-filled Infested Marshes to the northeast, and Vr'da Vil to the southeast.

Vr'da Vil is a Shad village, and the fifth town reached in the game. It is also the only town that is part of a larger exploration area, rather than being a separate area. Most of the inhabitants are quite hostile to humans, due to some past incident that involves the Wiccats that infest the northern areas of the village; the Shad blame the infestation on the humans' power plant near the temples. The villagers' trust has to be regained by completing a mandatory storyline quest.

Treasures[edit | edit source]

Gaia's Garden has by far the largest number of chests of any area, having at least twice as many as any other area except Maroon Valley. Many of these are not initially accessible, and require either the Valuable-key.pngRadiant Key from the So'najiz Temple, or the Wave element from the Zir'vitar Temple (to use a Wave teleporter) in order to access them.
