The Keep, true to its name, is the first village in the main storyline to have been obviously built to repel repeated waves of Wraith attacking from the depths of the Swamp of the Wraiths
This is also the first village in the main storyline to offer advanced Crafting services. As one of the more secluded high level crafting villages, however, it is a less likely choice for those on the move.
High level crafting can be done here, as in its sister village to the south (Village of the Dreaming Cloud), Sirry Wine Camp, Dreamweaver Port and Immolation Camp. The merchant here and the ones in the other towns as well erroneously offer level 5 and 6 Jade, rather than the level 7 and 8 they should offer, and correctly, Jade from level 9 to 14. The Jade is also listed in the wrong order, with the blue 11 and 12 jade first.
