The Dravanian hinterlands sit in the westernmost reaches of Abalathia's Spine, blessed with relatively lush vegetation due to waters carried through the area by the mighty Thaliak River. The region attained some fame as the seat of Sharlayan's colony, but this has faded in the fifteen years since the exodus. The settlement itself now largely stands unoccupied, a remnant of a lost time slowly being reclaimed by the land.

— In-game description

The Dravanian Hinterlands is a zone in Dravania. This is the only major overworld zone in the game that does not have an aetheryte. Players who wish to quickly travel here should teleport to nearby Idyllshire.
