Lightwood is the home of the Kanians and surrounds Novograd, the capital of the League. Lightwood is the first area that new League players enter after finishing the starting zone of Evermeet Isle. It is also the region where the League capital of Novograd is located. It is adjacent to the regions of Siveria and Darkwater. The area is usually filled with level 5-11 mobs. Lightwood is the area where most players learn the basics regarding professions, guilds, raids and the auction house. Several high levels are also known to congregate here. The League arena is located in the center of the region where players brawl. The region is very sunny and considered peaceful. The only region of war is the Oreshek Fortress region at the west tip of the allod. Constant feuds between the Kanians and rebels occur in the sub-zone.
Lightwood is a beautiful sunny forest that contains many important places such as the Novograd Docks and Oreshek Fortress, a key League stronghold.
