East Ardougne

From MineScape Wiki


East Ardougne is the eastern of the two districts that form Ardougne, the capital of Kandarin.

Its neighbour, West Ardougne*, governed by King Tyras*, is closed off to the general public because of a plague affecting the inhabitants, but players may gain access by finishing parts of the Plague City* quest. East Ardougne is most known for its wealth, zoo and the theft-stricken marketplace. East Ardougne is currently governed by King Lathas.
