The Graveyard is an area in the Southeastern Direlands designed for high-level small group hunting. The graveyard has been updated with new content during many events.
The Graveyard was the first place to see a lot of new tech being developed.
- The spawns in the graveyard change depending on the time displayed on the map panel. The spawns switch to the easier "day" creatures at Dawnsong and to the harder "night" creatures at Evensong. (See Time for more details.)
- Also unique to the Graveyard is its ominous, swirling black sky that is present during the daytime and disappears as you leave the area. See here for a animated screenshot of the Graveyard's sky.
- The Graveyard was the first place to use the Alternative Currency tech, where NPCs will accept some other item instead of Pyreals for payment. In the case of the Graveyard, this currency is the Ancient Mhoire Coin.
- There are a few collection quests which use the NPC item detection tech, where an NPC will search your bags for an item or items and take it directly out, so you do not have to give the items to the NPC yourself - a very helpful feature in the deadly environment of the Graveyard.
It would seem that in the distant past Rytheran under the direction of, Geraine, His Eternal Splendor, destroyed the House Mhoire using the Book of Eibhil. It is unclear why, but in Rytheran's Letter he refers to the House Mhoire as the traitor house. It is presumed that the House of Mhoire left because they objected to becoming undead like Geraine and many of the other Dericost nobles. For millennia the House Mhoire was buried beneath the ground, but recently, as written in his letter, Rytheran left the Mage Academy in search of a mysterious magical book, the Book of Eibhil. He found the book and began to read from it to restore his memories and power. By reading from this book, dark magic rose the Graveyard to the surface once more.
