Reserve Overview

Val-des-bois icon

Reserve inspired by: French Alps
Pronunciation: val / de / buah
Pronounce the "a" in Val like the "a" in father.
Pronounce the "e" in des like the "e" in tent.

Meet the typical huntable animals in this area and climb the mountains to find the majestic Alpine Ibex. You will hear the calls from the Golden Eagle or Alpine Chough, and enjoy the authentic flora including the elusive Edelweiss. Watch your step while climbing and even walking along steep drops, as you might fall off cliffs and require a First Aid Kit to recover.

The name of this reserve was coined by player Haldur during a community contest pre-launch of this reserve. This reserve comes with breathtaking views and unconquerable peaks for you to master.

Huntable Species

Lodges

Chalet du Mont-Bleu

Loge-Le-Chalet-du-Mont-Bleu

This remote hunting lodge was once an inn for travelers working their way up river. But after the great landslide of 1899 the valley became very difficult to travel through and few travelers came this way. The inn was abandoned and stood empty for almost fifty years until it was renovated and turned into a hunting lodge. Many Alpine Ibex hunting expeditions use this lodge as a starting point.

Common Prey: Alpine Ibex, Brown Bear, Roe Deer, European Rabbit

Maison du Néant

Loge-La-Maison-du-Néant

During the war this house served as headquarters for military intelligence operations. Its location and function was kept under the utmost secrecy long after the war was over even. A few years back the house was stripped clean and sold off by the military to local hunting enthusiasts who use it as a hunting lodge. It is open for everyone who enjoys hunting but the Red Deer hunting around this lodge is particularly good.

Common Prey: Alpine Ibex, Red Deer, Red Fox

Animal Map

This is a community made map and is based on players' experience in the game. It is and simple attempt to display where animals spawn in this reserve, and NOT where you might find them during a hunting session. The map shows where you can expect to find the animals in maybe 80% of your hunts right after you start the game. The animals can also appear in other places, but they will with less frequency.

The animals are shown on the map in clusters. This approach does not do the game perfect justice, but the map becomes easy to understand. Imagine a circle around each animal icon and you will get an idea about their predominant spawning locations.
