Note: This article is about the uncorrupted region of Mirkwood. You may be looking for Mirkwood Corrupted instead. Or the faction Woodland Realm (Faction)

The Woodland Realm is a sanctuary in Mirkwood for the Wood-elves of Middle-earth, their ruler being King Thranduil, father of Legolas Greenleaf.

Mirkwood was once a vast and beautiful forest known as Greenwood the Great, but was given its current name after nearly all of the region fell under Sauron's shadow over the course of the Third Age. Only a small portion in the north of the forest remained uncorrupted and protected by the Elves, which is the Woodland Realm.

The area is heavily forested with Mirk-oaks (only light green and red variant) and various other trees from Vanilla and the mod, making it the ideal home for the nature-loving Wood-elves. Giant Mirk-oaks also grow here, making this biome ideal for the treehouse-dwelling player.

Upon entering this region of Mirkwood, you gain the achievement "Guest of the Elvenking".

Sub-biomes Edit

Woodland Realm Hills Edit

These hills form the heartlands of the Woodland Realm. The biome contains steep, rolling hills, making travel through this part of the area more challenging. The vegetation on the hills is lusher than in the surrounding lowlands. The tree-density is higher and almost half of all Green-oak trees have grown to huge size, proving ample opportunities for Wood-elven 'eyes in the sky'.

Structures that spawn in the Woodland Realm biome also appear here. The Woodland Realm Hills biome is an ideal place to construct underground halls (like that of the Elvenking), due to the tall hills that offer large amounts of underground building space.

Variants Edit

The Woodland-realm biome includes the following variants:

  • Standard - Normal Woodland-realm forest biome.
  • Forest - Forest covered lands.
  • Light Forest - Lightly forested lands.
  • Aspen Forest - A forest dominated with Aspen trees.
  • Birch Forest - A forest dominated with Birch trees.
  • Beech Forest - A forest dominated with Beech trees.
  • Larch Forest - A forest dominated with Larch trees.
  • Pine Forest - A forest dominated with Pine trees.

Structures Edit

A variety of structures spawn in Mirkwood.

Mobs Edit

This biome is populated with various types of Wood-elves. Apart from NPCs, the black butterflies of Mirkwood spawn here, as well as the Elk, cows, sheep, chickens, and wild boars. No evil mobs spawn within the Woodland Realm, except for the Orcs in the cells in the dungeons of Wood-elven Towers.

Vegetation Edit

The Woodland Realm is less densely forested than Northern Mirkwood and Mirkwood Corrupted. It contains a huge variety of trees of the following species: Green- and Red-oak, Oak, Spruce, Chestnut, Beech, Larch, Fir and Pine. Green-oaks can be found in normal and large size variations (the large size having Wood-elven platforms on them). The Red-Oak trees of the Woodland Realm are, without exception, of a much larger variant than the ones found in Northern Mirkwood.
