The above map presents Elmshore, i.e. the location of little significance, which you visit on your way from Defiance Bay to Twin Elms. Here, you can encounter quite a few monsters, although it is optional to fight the majority of them and you can, just as well, walk around them. You should especially consider whether you want to take a peek in the cave in Elmshore, because you encounter a group of quite strong opponents there.
Important places on Elmshore
1. Elmshore cave
Side quest: Bounty: Nalrend the Wise - You need to kill Nalrend and his bodyguards, mainly elite types of ogres. This is a very difficult fight so, do not engage the opponent unless your party is sufficiently strong.
There is a locked chest in the cave - requires 5 points of Mechanics.
4. Dying monk
Side quest: The Sealed Missive - talk to the Dying Monk sitting by the tree.
Quests that you can obtain in Elmshore
Side quest: The Sealed Missive - Talk to the Dying Monk (M35,4).
Types of opponents and monsters on Elmshore
Rain Blight - various types.
Earth Blight - various types.
Ogre - keep the weaker party member clear of the ogres, because they deal high damage in melee. Apart from that, try to eliminate ogres one-by-one, because they are quite tough.
Elder Bear - It deals more damage and is stronger than regular bears.
Ogre Matron - This monster is more demanding than regular ogres. Focus your party's attacks on it.
Ogre Druid - deal with druids as quickly as possible, because not only are they strong, but also they can use magic.
Adra Beetle - this is one of the most dangerous types of beetles.
Adragan - Do not allow the monster to cast spells.
