  • Ants can be found crawling on a stump (on the left) outside of the main gate.
  • The Orcs here will always be hostile, even if one has been named "Blood Kin" by the Orc Strongholds. Also, killing the Orcs here will not cause the Orcs elsewhere to become hostile, as they are not part of the same faction.
