You’ll need your horse to move around locations in the Northern Lands. The area’s topography makes walking or running between them impossible. Your horse will always return you home even if it is hungry, but after returning home, you’ll have to feed your starving steed before riding it again. The locations found in the new northern territories have resources that cannot be found in the lands south of the river — resources like birch logs, iron ore, and mushrooms. You’ll also encounter new enemies north of the river - enemies capable of not only stunning you, but also attacking from a distance and even attacking from the air. And of course, you’ll also come across unique weapons and skill books, too.
