Cursed Vale biome banner
When aged adventurers hang up their swords, they don’t build retirement cornerstones in the Cursed Vale. With wildlife known as “the wild death” and the scent of rancid murk clinging to every corner, only the strongest warriors (with the weakest nostrils) should venture forth.

Cursed Vale (also known to be called Haunted Woods, Viking Burial Grounds and Spooky Hills) is a Prime World biome presented by the dark purple “Cursed and Undead” theme. It exists in Adventure Worlds Cursed-vale and higher (purple portal) and can appear in small patches or massive chunks of land. The items that can be obtained here that are randomly generated are Enchanted Wood, Mushrooms, and Somber Souls.

Cursed Vale biome as it appears on the map.

The Cursed Vale is displayed on the map as a purple biome with a watermark pattern of a skull patterned within the area of the map. This biome contains Primal Purple blocks with Primal Yellow Blocks for dirt and stone. There are many patches of grass that players can destroy by basic attacks or run over by Mounts, which will give players Glim and a few occasional pickup of Bombs.

This biome is made up of abandoned houses, cursed tombs, and unsettling catacombs to give it the theme of being cursed and undead to the world of Trove. Enemies around here are mainly undead ranging from Skeletons to Undead Emperors. A few undead Permafrost enemies can also be seen here in Lairs and Dungeons.

This is the home of the Tomb Raiser.


When traveled adventurers hang up their swords they don’t build their retirement cottages in the Cursed Vale. The view isn’t terribly pleasant due to rancid murk and the wildlife is known as the wild death. Here is treasure, though! Enchanted Wood and Mushrooms grow here, but the most valuable resource in the Cursed Vale are Somber Souls.

Biomes in this group are creepy, dim, and dangerous! Natural growth like grass and trees are affected by the undead influence, and become corrupted as a result. Foes in these regions tend to be nightmares, shambling monstrosities, decaying warriors, and other unsavory characters you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley. Decoration items from this type of biome should be a bit on the macabre side. “Undead” versions of deco from the Wooded Highlands tend to work well here, as well as creepy bone objects or standard horror-movie props.

Weapons from the Undead Hills should be fantasy-themed, but with a darker vibe than the Wooded Highlands.

The flora of the Cursed Vale consists mainly of tall, purple-leafed trees, that when destroyed (trunk and leaves) drop Primal Purple blocks; small patches of purple grass may also be found, and when destroyed, can drop 1-2 glim or bombs. There are also two special plants, a purple mushroom (drops Mushroom chunks) and a small tree trunk (drops Enchanted Wood).
