Travel Advisory/Warnings

  • There are several crafting tables located throughout the town. One crafting table is located in the easternmost middle house at (-991, 68, 317), 2 crafting tables are located in the tavern with a slanting roof around (-1010, 67, 315), and several crafting tables are located in the Dawn Brigade cantina at (-997, 61, 279).
  • Many of the roofs in the Pravus can be climbed atop to be temporarily safe from zombies.
  • Pravus is the center of many minor locations in the desert, such as Ruins and Desert Castles.
  • Falling into the canals is dangerous, as there will most likely be cobwebs and zombies there.
  • You may parkour onto the roof of the large Northern building, to be safe from zombies by using the wood pile or hay bales. This is also how you get the mil_common on the mast of the tavern.
  • This town is not the best place to gather supplies for heading north as there are many players looking for loot. It is recommend to head to Grimdale or Portsmouth.
  • If you decide to stay, gear up and head to Yawpton for military supplies.
  • With the aid of a friend and some shears, this town can be great. Large groups of friendly people gather here sometimes.


  • Pravus was first introduced to the map in Halloween 2013 under the name of "The Ghost Town Pravus". It featured a barricade around the town and had a "corruption" style to it, with mycelium plaguing the ground and netherrack and soul sand latching onto the buildings of the town. The zombie spawn rate was increased along with their spawners and the Ghost Ship was docked here during the whole "event", which had Zombie Pigman Spawners. To make up for the increased difficulty of the location, the loot was mostly composed of iron armour.
    • The Ghost Ship looked entirely different from what it usually looks like. It was closely resembling a Ghost Fleet ship.
    • A review of the town can be found here.
  • The word Pravus is Latin for "Depraved", which references the "corruption" state this town had when it was first added.
  • Pravus also received a reskin for Christmas 2017 and The King of Red Lions was docked here. This makes Pravus the only town to ever have two important ships docked in it. The other town to have one was Carmi, with the Ghost Ship docked when it was first introduced.
  • The Shifty Bar is the HQ for the Dawn Brigade, owned by Meifot and operated by connor564.


  • There is a Lore Block located inside the tavern with a mast at (-1040, 67, 272):

Lore Block

Originally a trader's quay on the shipping lane of Portsmouth, the accumulation of sunken ships due to rough seas littered the surrounding waterfront. As waterlogged hulls were pulled ashore, several were still intact enough to begin refurbishing into living spaces.

Pravus grew in fame as the only successful town to weather the harsh arid climate of this desert and quickly became the perfect stop for travelers looking to cross the continent.

As the virus began to roll over the land, Pravus quickly fell, having no defenses to keep the dead at bay. This coastal city was lost to the plague, being little more than a momentary pause for the superhorde that approached the capital city, Grimdale.
