Spring Island is a large island located in the Emerald Archipelago. There are three known routes from the island: Tinga Island, Emperor Island, and an inter-archipelago route to Hephaestus' Forge in the Jet Archipelago. There is also an extinct training route encircling the island.

Natural Resources

This island spawns iron, tellurium, and wood. These resources can be bid on at the market.


Originally buildings on Spring had a Camelot/King Arthur theme. However, Dies Irae changed the naming scheme simply to "Spring" during the Spring Cleaning Events: Part 1 & Part 2
