Manshaums Forest is an intermediate grind-zone. Manshaums mobs are primarily grinded for the infinite mana pot. The way the mana pot piece is obtained here is by looting dead mobs. The infinite pot allows you to infinitely replenish your mana without ever having to buy mana pots. The xp here is decent but not better than pollys. With that being said, this spot great for money until you can grind either aakman or hystria.
Manshaums is located Northeast of Grana; Grana is located South of Calpheon, the third major city in Black Desert.
