Gea Kul serves as the central hub within Kehjistan. It is the largest town and features various NPCs and essential shops. The town is equipped with a convenient waypoint for quick travel. The Blacksmith, Jeweler, and Occultist shops are located near the center area of Gea Kul. Using the town portal within Kehjistan will always teleport the player back to Gea Kul.
