The Ruins of Gar Uta

The Ruins of Gar Uta is a location that is discovered by exploring the Ruins of Thallis. Gar Uta is the location of powerful, late game monsters, as well as late game quests.


You have reached the plains which once hold the great city of Gar Uta. This city used to be the stronghold of the followers of Lunord during the Six Winter War. All that remains intact is the Temple of the Winds though, and it seems that several small tribes have set up camps throughout the region. It seems that the foes here are not quite as strong as in the Desolate Wastelands either, which is quite a relief. Still, you have the distinct feeling something is seriously wrong here.
