The Realm of Dern
|The Realm of Dern|
|Dern is a realm that currently does not exist on the map, whose gateway is located south of Wynn at the end of the Silent Expanse.|
The Realm of Dern, also known as the Dern Province, is a mysterious place that has yet to be released. It has been stated to be a place of darkness and is called a "far off dark land" by lead lore developer, Grian. He also has stated that in the lore of the game it is not considered a province, but should still be treated as one.
This has sparked much debate about whether it is a province or a realm. Many community members also believe that the dark area explored in the Fantastic Voyage quest could be Dern, but currently this is just theory and speculation.
