Anyone else feels like east side is vastly superior to the west? It has much higher creature variety, more accessible terrain, more bosses that drop legendary keys, better placement of resources/treasure chests and to top it off, it has one more functional Leyshrine.
Pretty much the only real advantage I see that west side has is Puffball Mushrooms.
I’m not sure if it is all intentional, but I feel like the gap is so huge that you have to be out of your mind to willingly choose settling in the west.
If it’s not intentional and the gap is to be bridged, I suggest start with repairing one of the west side’s broken leyshrines.
