Firefall Pass is a tier 1 zone in the Night of Shadows expansion.
The anguished roar of a mighty beast has caused a ground-shattering earth(moon?)quake on Luclin, leaving destruction in its wake. Firefall Pass was once a precarious, mountainous climb through Luclin, but the earthquake was tremendous enough to shatter one of its great mountains completely in two. Though Firefall Pass remains incredibly dangerous, the new path has made it easier for skilled adventurers to trudge across the area.
With their habitat in disarray, the inhabitants of Firefall Pass are hyperaggressive. Saureks, underground insects, and very angry birds once living on top of the mountain, now fight for territory. The quake has also attracted a band of Akheva investigating the wreckage.
