The zone is in the canyon north of Stormhold. Medium sized zone with a big ring event at the druid ring. Monsters respawn in this zone. There is no failure lockout timer. Successful lockout time is 4 hours. If you enter the vale using a glitch, you will see a campsite instead of a druid ring, and no mobs. This could be either an easter egg or a glitch. The public vale hasn't been patched.
Location: ( -2338, 7, -67 ) /waypoint -2338, 7, -67 There are several ways to gain access to this zone, though not all for the same instance:
- Kill the wolves surrounding a messenger's body on the road near Stormhold and then inspect body to get access the Invasion of the Vale instance for the quest by the same name.
- Get regular vale access from Hartok as part of the Antonica Timeline.
- Possess a guild writ that requires you enter the vale.
- Run up the mountains near the vale entrance/exit and jump over it. This will take you to an area similar to the vale but it has a campsite instead of a druid ring. It is unknown what this is for. This hasn't been patched.
