Blackbone Isle

Blackbone Isle is a haunted island in the Sea of Ghosts. It can only be reached via the boat at Orphan's Tear.

The island consists of a small strip of coastline as well as the entrance to a cave known as Blackbone Isle Grotto. The Grotto houses a ship named Dead Man's Dread, which can be repurposed as a player house after completion of the related quest.

You will arrive on Blackbone Isle just at the entrance to the Grotto, where you will immediately be attacked by an undead enemy. You will need to enter the Grotto as part of the related quest, but a quick detour down the coast can offer additional loot. The island cannot actually be circumnavigated due to invisible barriers, and tall mountains block any progress into the interior. Your only option is therefore to head south, towards a shipwreck visible from the entrance.

The remainder of the coast is crawling with undead. These are the same leveled lists as those affected by the Bone Wolf and Plague of the Dead Creations, so you may encounter some of these new enemy types. Several chests can be found by exploring the island, as well as a single moonstone vein.


  • Although Blackbone Isle has a map marker, it cannot be fast travelled to from the mainland, requiring you to take the boat from Orphan's Tear each time you wish to go there. Similarly, you cannot fast travel while on the Isle and must take the boat back.
