Ettin's Back is named after the high plateau in the center of the area that rises like the humped back of an Ettin. There are, however, no Ettins in the area. Instead, one finds plenty of other monsters in this dry area in the jungle which is similar to the Sage Lands. In the western portion of the region, Maguuma Centaur patrols surround the entrance to the only outpost in the area, Ventari's Refuge. As one approaches Aurora Glade in the east, the landscape shifts more towards the verdant jungles seen of lower Maguuma. Aside from that, there are three separate armor collectors in this area.
