The Jaggedpine Forest made its debut on July 24, 2002. It is home to a clan of Darkpaw gnolls, visitors from Qeynos and Surefall, as well as a host of many animals, most of which are very aggressive and sometimes difficult to see in the thicker regions of the forest.

How to get to Jaggedpine Forest

You can enter the Jaggedpine Forest through a teleporter located deep in the bear caves in Surefall Glade. There is also a teleporter located in the bottom of Blackburrrow. (Reference: http://www.eqtitan.com/eqatlas/jaggedpineforest.html)

Just arrived here, level 39 necromancer.
Hunting gnolls. I had to run around the entire zone once just to find it; theyre a bit hidden with a very small entrance, right nearby the zone-in.
Xp it good as it's a HOT zone. Just fingers crossed for some named beasts!

Happy hunting and safe travels, friends

I may just be very stupid, but the 1st time I spent AGES trying to find a way into Nedaria's Landing from Jaggedpine Forest... I got so frustrated. So I thought a bit of info on it here might be a good idea for any future adventurers who get lost like I did.

There is a gnoll cave on the western wall of the zone. Go in and get to the fortress where all the gnolls are, then go around it till you find the waterfall right at the back of the fort. Dive into the water and swim straight ahead through the water fall and there's the zone to Nedaria's Landing. What a place to put the zone line.

I have tried walking, jumping, clicking, hailing, farting, screaming, bug reporting & still cannot get through to Jagged from surefall caves. I have only just returned to EQ after 5 year absence so let me know if something has changed please.

Banking for Evil Characters

If you are a DE you have limited access to banks and merchants in most of Norrath unless you work on Faction.
I was VERY glad to discover that, with my DE 13th level Necro I could bank with the Brell gnolls in Jaggedpine! I had been hunting in Blackburrow and used the crystal to avoid dying from a pull (during which somehow one of the Splitpaw escapees showed up) and decided to check the con for the Brell gnolls.
They didn't want to kill me so I went to check out the bank, and found I could sell to the vendor there and use the Bank!
Since they will meet my needs I won't hunt these gnolls, and now I can add JP and Nedaria's and Everfrost Peaks to my hunting zones since JP is very easy to reach from them. I am definately enjoying the change from the usual EC /WC/ Lavastorm / Paludal/ Oasis hunting spots.

40 Ranger Solo

Hello, im a 40 woodelf ranger looking to solo (bow or fear kite) and i have been told of rangers leveling up in the 40's and 50's here. Is it possible for a 40 ranger to solo here or should i wait til like 45? If i am able to what mobs should i be killin? I can easily just walk into this zone and check track for all dark blue + cons but im unsure of which ones frenzy, undercon, ruin faction or whatever. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am twinked and considering purchasing a few HP regen items (Frost-covered cape, iksar regen BP, belt of the great turtle etc.) to help out a bit. Thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated!

You may be able to solo at 40...I'm 44 and soloing Timber Griffawns and Timber Griffons...snare, fear, DoT, Burning Arrow, fear, fear, fear, snare, fear...you know the drill...keep Root to crowd-control in case nosey Griffons/Griffawns show up...just root and snare adds..(snare them, too, so they don't run too fast after you when the root fails....but pretty easy...only hunt Grif's and Anacondas...but don't do Anaconda's till much later...they are TUFF.

I spent many levels in JP. Many. Good little trick I learned early on- the Griffs and Anacondas do not agro unless attacked. So when fear kiting (only spells I used were fear and snare and beat them down- saves mana=less downtime) keep your eyes open. If you see another griff coming your way, just back off. It'll fly right by. Then fear again and continue. Haven't used dots, but I would think if dot went off while the 2 griffs are close it would agro the other. Pretty soon you'll have it down to a science, and will be able to time fear nicely. In about 10 levs I died maybe once, not paying attention. Real nice thing is none of the animals will agro you, and have no faction. So they still won't agro after you kill a few thousand:)
Edit: Also-the only things in zone that WILL agro are the darkpaw gnolls, the poachers, and the potameids. The Brell gnolls should be okay with you. They all stay pretty much in their own areas of the zone. Use your map, keep track of where you are and you should be fine.

I am currently pursuing rumours that necromancers and shadowknights can get interesting quests from the gnoll oracles. If this proves fruitful, I will submit the quests which will inevitably require the slaughter of qeynos guards and jaggedpine treefolk. Since I do this for free for any enchanter who wishes to enter the temple of Cazic Thule for the first part of their epic, I will figure out how to twist jaggedpine forest to my own nefarious ends.

I haven't seen any benefit to having good faction with the Jaggedpine gnolls (Darkpaw of Jaggedpine faction), unless Snarla the Fang is on this faction and you want to do the "Snarla's Friendship" quest. Snarla is on "Anchorites of Brell Serilis" faction so I'm not sure if bad Darkpaw faction would affect this.
As far as I'm concerned, with the exception of Furball Miller, all gnolls are to be killed on sight!!

Gnoll Killing

I first came here to get the Queynos Badge of Nobility. Our Guild killed Barraducks and unfortunately we were unable to save the village from the resultant massacre.

The gnolls however are one of the few mobs dark blue to a level 55 Paladin that can be soloed. It is easy to pull from the entrance of thier caves and then to beat them down. The warriors are the hardest but stay dark blue for the most levels. The spawn rate is very fast so with that and KEI
the down time is minimal. If you do overpul it is a shhort run to the TP out.
have never got an add or had any trouble sitting and medding on the stone overlooking the cave ent. The loot is quite reasonable and thereis the odd unusual drop that keeps things interesting.

The AA is OK and if you havent time to get a group this is a fun little camp. The defiler and Cleric Gnolls let you practice stun and bashing caster routines.

The place is quiet and often I am the only one there. So, if you cant find a group and fancy a little soloing this is a good spot imho.

I came here to kill critters and spread a little darkness into the land.

The forest here is very intensive. It reminds me of Dawnshroud, minus the sambata humpbacks.

I found some gnolls nice enough to say something other than "Don't-you-Dark-Elves have your own ..."

One, an Oracle, said he wants necklaces. I'll give him his beads, then strangle him. Muhahaha.

Surprisingly, the dryads here are indifferent--for now.

There are Griffs here that have no faction hits.

Being as they are animals fear kiting is easy. I can do 5 to 6 of 'em at 43rd level in a row -- no med brakes, etc... XP is OK at 1% to 3% per drop.

Simply pull them near the town, snare, shoot a couple times, fear then chop 'em out of the skies.

VERY easy hunting.

(65 Paladin) Going to finish the Tempest Guard helm as soon as I get the faction to turnin pieces. Pulling a 65 bard over to kite the stuff around, I'll heal him once around 40% (obviously earlier if he needs it, just 40% shouldnt tag aggro) get the faction hit and should be done in 2-3 full cave rapes. Wont be as hard as giant faction obviously. Only problem would possibly the MOBs losing chase and returning, but aside from that it should be cake. None of these mobs are even high enough to use gate tactics yet, so dont have to worry about summoners.

I am a level 18 Ranger and would like to visit JP in order to get some cheese (and look around). I have tried 'clicking' on the 'bags' in the room at the end of the tunnel beyond the bridge behind the 'false' wall. What am I doing wrong? Is it 'level caped' like the planes of power are (must be level 46 to enter any plane other than the plane of knowledge).

In order to get to Jaggedpine from Surefall, first move into the caves behind the waterfall (which spills into the pond surrounding the houses on stilts in the water in Surefall). Then, to get to the portal, just keep heading "up" - you will see some stairs immediately as you enter the waterfall cave - take them and head up - when you come to another split in the route - follow the steep incline and head up. You may come to what at first looks like a dead end with a brown bear in it - but look to the right and you will see the route continues to a room with a crystal on a pedestal. Click the pedestal and you will be in Jaggedpine. To get out of Jaggedpine, click the same sort of crystal which is where you zone in to and it will take you back to Surefall.

Don't forget the Blackburrow route.

Go down into BB by following the right wall from zone, down you go, take the first right and you're on a bridge, hop off to the left and head towards the clump of gnolls and barrels.

Head back and go right past the Burly Gnoll down the slope. Open the door and you should be in a large room with stone walkways, one heading up to a door and some water to the right. Hop off the walkway and go under the high walkway directly under the high side door. You'll see a Pillar lookin thing with a red gem on it. Click that and Poof - JP

If you are still wondering about Jaggedpine.

After you launch EQ, you will want to turn off Autoplay. Click on the advanced Button in the patcher. Then make sure you have Optional Zones checked. You may need to perform a full file check.

Hope this helps.

Alright when the patcher screen pops up (the one that scans your computer and updates EQ to the latest software) do not let it start EQ (make shure autoplay is not check marked). Instead click on the advanced button and then check mark the Optional Zones that should replace them with a Sphere on a pedistal instead of bags and all you have to do is click on it and your zoning onto Jagged Pines.

I think most of the Basilisks in the cave near the transporter from Blackburrow would still be dark blue to you, and they're pretty good XP in the mid-thirties, so they might still be for you.

Most of the other stuff in this zone will probably be too high for you, although you should be able to duo bandits in another three or four levels, I think.

A bard can sing his 11th song " Cinda's Charismatic Carillon " on the animal (wolf or bear) after you enter this zone. Your faction with these animal will become "dubious" and won't be KOS by them.

But the lag is so obvious, my bard can not use his "Chant Kite" tactic smoothly.
I leave this zone immediately after being hit very hard by the Griffon.

I was in a group fighting from the blocked tunnel area and we were in wolf form. The bard in our group wiggled himself between the rocks just to see what was back there and ending up in a passageway thru which he zoned back to the port-in spot. Not sure if it's a bug or not, but it does save time running back to town.

Been hunting here with my 56 druid, mainly hoping the Griffon Eye would drop.
As of yet, after about 20+ hours in the zone, nothing has agroed me. A post here says about griffon aggro... well if your fighting one others will come to its aid if in agro range, but i have found if you move out of its path, it just flys past.
Easy hunting here but most is Lt blue so Xp fairy slim. I Charmed a black panther, which has a lot of HP for its Lv, makes a great pet, shame Tunares request dont take but using Call of Karana you just have to use a Lv 1 snare to be able to recharm.
Was able to take out the poachers quite easy with my pet, even got the no drop mask for my Rogue )
I like it here, but as soon as I get the Eye of thr Griffon I'll have to leave as the XP is just too slow.

aggro is related to lvl - higher you get relative to the grif less likely it'll aggro on you. In low 50s aggro disappears, but is a prob till then.

I've had the other animals, even allied, agro on 3 occasions. I finally figured out its due to Archery misses (I think). If you are Bow Kiting and another animal or wisp or such walks by between you and your target there is a chance you are going to hit it. Check it out I bet you'll see thats whats going on.

Although the zone is kinda buggy. Every griff and snake cons indifferent normally, but on rare occasion you can con one that will be scowling. Why? I have no idea.

Tell me about it. This zone SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! mobs spawn on top of you, unless you're a druid EVERY animal MAY aggro on you regardless of how the /con.

I say MAY because I've walked right past the little buggers and they've left me alone, but God forbid I'm hunting gnolls or something, then a panther or a bear will attack me. Griffs path in a way that garauntees that they'll add to each other.

Oh, and ***** the QRG Protected Animals faction crap. I've used the ONLY QUEST to increase factoin, and while I've gone from apprehensive to amiable with the Treefolk, the little 4-legged maggots of Jaggedpine still /con threatening.

I'm normally a very peaceful Erudite wizard, seeking knowledge and exploration only, but I SWEAR when I hit at least level 60 I'm going to wipe out every animal in this zone.

Griffawns are much lower lvl than griffons Even if u get scowls, they aren't that stupid they won't attack as with most mobs unless u are sitting, that tends to attract attention. Also when u are fighting a mob others will often join in, this also is is consistant with most mobs throughout norrath.
Getting out?

I've looked at these posts and they do contain some useful information. However they do not contain the piece I seek: How does one get OUT of the zone once in? Verant has created several one-way zones where the zone exit is far removed from the entrance. Is this one of those? I ain't about to set my tender monk-y (i.e. no Gating) feet in here without knowing I can safely leave.
Also have to comment that Saran's map, provided here at Alla, while kinda helpful is a great deal less than useful without a legend explaining what the numbers mean...

Another passage in and out of the zone, and my preferred one, is via Blackburrow. The Brell Serilis Gnoll caves are accesses through a tunnel in the west wall of the zone. There is a gem-clicker in here ( bear right when comong in from Jaggedpine) and it will teleport you onto the lower level of Blackburrow.
The Brell Gnolls also feature several quests as well as vendors and a banker.

If you're able to come in through the Surefall Glade entrance by clicking on the gem, you will find yourself near the little town next to a little hill with a gem. Click that gem to get out.

Darkpaw Gnoll Caves

Well, having spent a good bit of time so far playing down in the gnoll caves in Jaggedpine, I have a semi-complete map of the cave system. There are 2 types of gnolls in JP, Darkpaw gnolls seem to be for killing, while Brell gnolls seem to be for questing with. Darkpaw gnolls drop up to 7 plat in change, Poorly Balanced weapons that sell for 4-5 plat, Saberpaw armor (vendor bait) worth 70-100 pp, some other items sell for 33 plat, and then there are the nice mid-level drops. Masterlooting is the way to go here, after about 3 hrs in the caves, you'll have between 300 and 600 plat to split among the party (plus there are merchants and a bank in the zone). Gnolls are good experience for level 45-55 (takes me anywhere from 2-4 hrs to fill in a yellow of AA experience if I put 90 pct into AA).
The cave system is rather complex (around 10 small chambers with 1-4 spawns, 3 large chambers with 10-30 spawns, plus wandering gnolls), so you'll want to either take along someone to port you out at the end, or keep a detailed map of how you get to where you end up. There are places in the cave system where you can duo (or even carefully solo), while other places have so many wanderers pathing through that an enchanter is essential. Respawns are 12 minutes, so action can be fast if you're not careful where you chose to fight. Most of the time, you'll want to fight either in the tunnel just before the next chamber (if you're 'crawling'), or move from spawn point to spawn point in the larger caverns.

Kinda named the caverns now... there are a few different spots that are good camps here:

"northwest" - if you go in and make all lefts, this is a dead-end cavern up around +3400, +1300 (only a handful of static spawns here).

"entrance" - the obvious at +2500, +650

"middle" - a mid-sized cavern (go north from entrance, then northeast at 2nd chamber) at +2800, +600, good spot for a lower group (or not-full group).

"named" - this is the big V/Y shaped cavern where the named gnoll spawns (in the northwest corner), fastest route is to go north from entrance 2 chambers (to +3000,+1100), then east once, then north (entrance to named cavern is +3270,+830, but there's also a east entrance at +3480,+220). This is a great place to have the shammy pull with slow, and root-park the mobs for killing. Will probably support 2 power groups.

"dead-end" - a L-shaped chamber in the northeast portion with a dead-end tunnel at the south end (this is where the "trap" drops you). Fastest route is to go northeast from entrance chamber, then east and fall down the trap (at around +2700,-275). Good spot to solo-duo, downside is it's a long trip out if you don't bring a porter to succor/evac. This is the 2nd largest cavern, and can support a solo-duo group in the lower (southern end) as well as a full gruop at the upper tunnel (exit).

a few other, not-so-prime spots...

"named annex" - this is the tiny cavern with 4 spawns east of named (+3500, +75), you can pull from named cavern, or the tunnels.

"busy T" - this is the cavern halfway between "northwest" and "entrance", 3-4 spawns, plus numerous roamers is sure to keep your party busy (have a crowd-control plan as you'll get up to 5 at a time). Location is +3000,+1100.

Would a WAR of the 37th season be useful in this zone. It sounds like a fun zone, with decent loot and great exp just a little worried I am on the low side for hunting there.
Transporter to Jagged Pine from Black Burrow
# Aug 18 2002 at 10:53 PM Rating: Excellent
My recent scouting trip into Black Burrow was worrisome. The gnolls are busy at work burrowing into their lair. New passageways lead down into the earth and I fear that the reports that they are desperately trying to build a tunnel that connects with the Jaggedpine are correct.

I was able to locate a tranporter within the new tunnels (loc 152, 174, -155). I fear that they are using it to move forces rapidly back and forth with their den in the Jaggedpine.

All those that love the hills of Jaggedpine and the glens of Surefall should return home if you are above the 35th rank. We will need your help to hold off the minions of evil as they attempt to overrun Jaggedpine, Surefall, and the hills of Qeynos.

A quick way to the portal is to jump off the wooden bridge that leads to the "elite" ledge and then look for an underwater tunnel. Swim through it and you should see an area above water with several barrels. The transporter is tucked up in the corner to the right.

I have sent this message back with a young adventurer I saw near the entrance from the Qeynos Hills. After I rest, I will attempt to use the transporter. May Tunare watch over me. I hope I am not transported into the midst of a pack of very surprised and angry gnolls!!

If you are a druid, most everything is indifferent or better. Timber griffawns and griffons are indifferent when in wolf form. Makes killing them easy. Killed wisps and griffons so far - no problem. They are dark blue to me and nothing aggros. I never killed a treant and never will.

So far I have looted a Panther Fang, a Wolf Fang, and a Bear Fang off of the poachers. They are NO DROP items. Anyone know if they are for a quest or something?

Check out the Brell Gnoll/Oracle Quest post to get your answer. Seems to be a faction based quest.

yeah it is all the way at the bottom level behind the razorgill pool - of course the old place looks so different with the new graphics I can't give you a good route to get there...

Wisps here are predicatable, don't have faction hits, and drop a GLS each time. Alternating between wisps and grifs is steady predictable exp in mid 40s. My wisp approch is to mele first, to maybe 1/2 health, then to shift to more root and shoot as they seem to hit harder as their hp goes down.

I checked out this zone for the first time the other day, but had to leave almost immediately.
Holee crap what horrible lag. Probably the worst I've encountered.
I have plenty of ram, but integrated video.
Is that why? Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
RE: lag
# Jul 30 2002 at 7:30 PM Rating: Decent
Have a little lag, but not near as bad as the Kitty City. Figure they put a little more textures and graphic in since it is new (like the Luclin zones.)

I have a Voodoo 5 (Supposed to be 64mb, but I think it is not at full capacity).

Ok, I've got several flayed panther hides (from named poachers) and one flawless panther hide (also from a named poacher). Can anyone shed some light on what these are for?

Many moons ago, I completed the Short Sword of Morin and Jaggedpine Cloak quests. These came with teasers of possible future upgrades and suggestions to not get rid of them. Has anyone followed up on these quests to see if any additional quests have been added for these. I have yet had a chance to get there, and it doesn't look like I will be going any time soon, so was just curious.

Gnoll attack on Town
# Jul 28 2002 at 9:53 AM Rating: Excellent
1 post
It seems that when the named gnoll is killed a raid on the Human town by the SFG zone is triggered. If you hear that the named gnoll has been killed, you might want to zone. Shortly after he dies, LOTS of gnolls attack the town, and any pc that happen to be there. Many of them conned red to me at lvl 36. They also capture and then sit on the "zoning gem", making it a bit tough to zone out. This may not be as big of a problem for higher level players, but at 36 it was a big problem. Foolishly, I hung around to see what would happen when the gnolls attacked. I found out...............LOADING PLEASE WAIT

This happens after killing Barducks Darkpaw. If you kill the attackers and loot an item that is no-rent and class specific, you can hand it into the seargent for a reward if the townspeople survive. Last night we took out Barducks ( BIG THANKS TO SONASH AND all of LoOF/LoLF that helped ), but failed to protect the city (I got us lost trying to get out). Anywho, the head of Barducks is used in an upgrade to the Qeynos badge of Honor. Also dropped is a 19/26 1hs named Sabertooth ( congrats Oath ).

Early Impressions of JPF
# Jul 27 2002 at 7:07 PM Rating: Decent
I was in this zone for about 3 hours today with my 46 ranger and I managed to get 1.5 yellow in exp by killing nothing but timber griffawns. I had no clue prior that you could panic animal these so that was a great suprise. I found that the item loot was slim to none but I was getting 4 pp and some gold max per kill. Everything I encountered in the zone (haven't encountered gnolls yet) besides the griffons were amiable to me. I was able to kill the griffawns with little or no adds, the key is to just keep an eye out for wanderers. When I'm done with griffawns I'll probably jump right into the griffons which con dark blue to but they hit for 107 damage so I'll stick with the griffawns for now which still mostly con dark blue and have only hit me for 96 damage.
Hope this helps for people at around my level. Just remember that snakes and griffons are the only animals that don't mess with faction to my knowledge.

This is a very nice zone to play in. I have mainly been grouping inside the Darkpaw cave. In a little over 3 hours last night i made 7 blue bubs exp at lvl 52. Loot not very good though but exp is grand :) All the Darkpaws are dark blue to me at lvl 52. Same with the Dryads. I stay away from the river folks as they a tough bunch who hates company lol. When the named gnoll is killed like others have said Gnolls take over. These are also all dk blue. I made mistake 1st night of camping inside jaggedpine. Was very lucky and no war going on when i logged on. I now camp inside sfg near the orb area. Very safe place. I also use camoflauge when i zone into jp just in case lol. I had been grouped a few days ago when a grizzly was killed by group and i not get any faction hits. But when i soloed last night i did. Said my faction with Jaggedpine critters could notpossibly get any worse yet when i conned the critters i was amiable lol. Some complain about the lag in there. Yes at times my lag meter goes nits but i seldom have movement problems. I have a 800mhz with 256MB and all turned on. You might try lowering clip plane. The other entrance to zone is near the lesser succor spot and is inside the cave thats there. Hope this has helped someone but i really love the zone :)
