First Home is a jungle on the Darkspear Islands where the sunlight nor a breeze can penetrate the foliage of the dense undergrowth. The air is thick and dense. It is dark at all times, and the only way to know if it is night is from the coolness in the air and the clouds of angry buzzing insects. Many dangerous creatures and plants can be found here such as raptors, kommu, alchu bugs, nambus, upka leaves, and big mosquitoes.

It is here the Darkspear loa, ancient spirits of those who had transcended death, can give a troll second sight or drive him mad so that he would pull out his own eyes. The loa, which can grant wondrous boons or inflict terrible punishments, make judgments upon those that entered the jungle. These judgments are vicious, swift, and unpredictable. Nobody comes here besides shadow hunters and fools. Sometimes the shadow hunters returned, but the fools never do.

Vol'jin and Zalazane survived in it for several months, witnessing powerful visions of their future, before leaving the islands.[1][2][3]
