Description

Coral Forest is a zone found in New Eden composed of most of the area around Copacabana and major parts of the beach area along the coastline.

The Coral Forest is home to many kinds of creatures, such as various Nautili and Skivers, that can be seen hanging out around watery areas. There is a lot of shallow water to splash around in, but the water turns deep quickly. The terrain is very uneven in most spots, with large rocks and pillars scattered around.

Some sub-areas of Coral Forest, such as the Rockpools, are unthumpable, as is the beach/land adjacent to Copacabana is.

This is also the zone where new players will start at.

The area is for players between level 1 and 24, players that are above that level will be capped to level 24 (indicated by the red downward icon in the top left corner of the HUD).

From the official page[1]

Coral Forest’s fate took a turn for the worst six months ago during the tragic crash of the Arclight—a catastrophe that has devastated the region. An idyllic land that went mostly unscathed by the calamities of the past fifty years, it now faces a period of great tumult.
War is beating on its doorstep.
Still reeling from the Nine Year Winter, Coral Forest is home to many of humanity’s greatest terraforming projects, where we sculpt the terrain to our will and strive to raise the surface temperature another 3 degrees Celsius, back to previous mean levels. It is home to the Hydro-Core, where dark algae is cultivated in a half-kilometer wide agar plate and pumped into the Atlantic in an effort to retain more of the heat of sunlight. It is home to the Moisture Farm, where the realm’s largest ionosphere agitator creates up-currents in the sky above, disrupting and bending the jet stream to influence regional weather patterns. And it’s home to a hive of brine harvesters that comb the beach looking for salt pools to process, breaking the deposits down into bromine and chlorine in an effort to intentionally damage the ozone layer and allow more UV to reach the surface. Mankind will rebound. We can reheat. We will heal the Earth.
Coral Forest is also home to the Trans-Hub Command, where the Accord have requisitioned a commercial transit hub and turned it overnight into a sprawling, bustling base of operations. It’s home to the Nautical Biosphere Research Facility, where scientists strive to understand the recent influx of new species and experiment with cutting-edge Melding repulsor technology. And it’s the home of the Alpha Prime Botanical Gardens, a showcase of flora xeno-species from mankind’s first journey to the stars and the poster child of system quarantine control.
And of late, another descriptor can be tied to the region: Coral Forest, home of incessant raids by the Chosen and the permanent presence of Accord. The numbers on both sides are escalating. A once bucolic landscape is now being torn asunder by violence. An unspoken feeling hangs heavy in the air….it is the eve of something both terrible and great.
