Nothing in current lore even implies that there's a massive continent further east, so this was probably just Osborne talking too much and saying things he shouldn't (we love him anyway, of course).

It was stated back in a Q&A or FAQ a while ago that if there is anything further east, it's not what we know of as the Eastern Lands, and would be something separate.
You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

Maybe not, but this isn't the first time an Eastern Continent was mentioned (I believe by Mod Osbourne then as well). That was a while ago though (I've wanted to bring it up for months, but I couldn't remember where I first heard it, so I didn't want to come off as just making something up).

It's entirely possible that their minds have changed in that regard.


If there is an continent east of Wushanko, it'd be so disconnected from current lore (Wushanko covers every pre-POP Eastern Lands reference, and POP itself doesn't imply that there's anything so significant further east), that I think it'd be pointless to consider it "The Eastern Lands", especially since Gielinor is a sphere.

There being something further east than Wushanko makes sense, but whether or not we will ever go there, or if it's relevant in any way, is another matter. There's also probably a landmass south of Karamja, and a landmass west of Tirannwn. But until we know anything about them, they're not relevant.

Lore exists: (I feel guilty for copying and pasting from RS Wikia, but they sum it up)
The lands are noted by "western" explorers to contain many exotic items and people. Ak-Haranu, Necrovarus, San Fan, and Shanomi are known to come from there.

According to Trang and Mauritzio, the Eastern Lands are also home to the endangered black rhino and white rhino. In the real world, these animals are native to Africa and are also endangered.


Yes... That's the Wushanko Isles. The Wushanko Isles is the Eastern Lands.

I went and made the page a redirect since it was redundant seemed to be confusing people ;)
