Of the few melee options available to you in The Forest, the Katana is undoubtedly the best melee weapon you can get. Not only is it fast enough to take down mutants, but you can also prevent them from even retaliating due to how insanely fast it is.
That said, if you want to get your hands on this weapon, you’ll need to find it inside a cave first.
How to Find the Katana in The Forest
To get the Katana, you need to head over to Cave 1 – Dead Cave which isn’t that far away from the river. The entrance to the cave isn’t obvious at first, but you can easily spot it with the bright yellow rope that leads downward.
Simply climb down the rope, head straight until you find another rope, and climb upward. Then, go left while following the wooden boards that are laid on the ground. Simply follow the path until you come across a room containing a lot of loots.
There, you’ll find a Yakuza corpse and the Katana right beside him. Simply loot the Katana and you’ll have it automatically in your inventory.

Spellforce Conquest Of Eo: ALL City Location Guide
Angels watch over this town!
If you know where you stand but not where the enemy is then that means two things: You’re lost and you have a poor sense of direction. Next thing you know the enemy is right at the base of your tower because someone left the backdoor open for them. Knowing is half the battle after all. Well, that’s according to countless people who happen to have internet access at least. So how do you navigate around Eo without getting lost? Simple, remember where all the major cities are located! If you’ve missed a few places then don’t worry we’ll give the map another look.
SpellForce: Conquest of Eo | All City Location Guide
In this guide we’ll list down every city you’ll come into contact with. Each place comes with its own quests, rewards, units, and blueprints that you will need to benefit your campaign.
If you start in one of the recommended areas which is Goldenfields then the first city you will discover should be the City of Lyraine. You can find that on the right side, if you reach maximum friendship here you will unlock the Human Barracks.
Take a left turn however while going northwards and you will find Sevenkeeps. There should be a quest here that lets you recruit either Dwarves or Elves upon completion.
Head further up north past Stoneblade Peaks and you will end up in Silver Drift Hollow. They don’t offer any recruits but they do offer you Adamantium for a price once you get to know each other better. If you’re looking for another place that has Adamantium then go to The Heart of the Hollow. You can find that place if you go north again coming from Silver Drift Hollow.
Next is Bastion, you’ll find this place in Westguard to the left of Sevenkeeps. Head directly south from here and you will shortly arrive in Orgash. This is the place to go if you’re in the market for Orc units, you can also unlock the Orc Barracks here once you befriend its inhabitants.
Depending on where or how your exploration goes you will find the town of Alluvyan next. It’s right in the middle of Sevenkeeps and Bastion. You can’t miss it as it’s sitting in the middle of a lake.
The next place you can stumble upon is Connach in Southwatch. You can find this place by heading south from the City of Lyraine. Reaching maximum friendship with them will get you the Shop building for your tower.
Coming from Connach you can navigate around Rushwater Downs and beyond that you will find Audale. Reaching maximum friendship with these people unlocks the Warriors Hall for your tower.
Again go north from Audale and you will find the two Dwarf towns of Grey Dusk Vale and Windholme. Another place worth mentioning is Uram Gor but it’s an abandoned Dwarf town so there’s really nothing to see or do there. Paying the place a visit won’t hurt so just head south from Audale and go left from there.
And with that you’re now more familiar with the cities you can find around Eo. Now head on out there and see what lies in store for you!
