So, I'm wondering if there is anymore wild magic areas left in Faerun? and if so where!!????

I'm still implicating the Dead Magic Zones and the plague lands. I just need a general area where it is.

thanks

Everywhere. Assuming frequency of major spellstorm incidents is roughly constant, the new affected areas appear as much as they vanish. There were decaying mythals (and no doubt other great spell-fields) and motile "bubbles" under Ravens Bluff. Time of Troubles added the Helmlands and "bubbles" from the Guardian's Tear.

As for plaguelands, those must exists near places that once belonged to Abeir or were displaced to that world, such as Akanul (west Chessenta), Tymanther and Unther, Lantan or Halruaa, but by the current year of the 5e campaign, most of these lands have disappeared in the surface world. Maybe in the Underdark, near portals to the Far Realm (such below Neverwinter), the Spellplague has survived and thrived.

Thanks. Yeah, I saw the inner faerun (around the sea of fallen stars) was covered in plagueland areas.

Which is perfect because that's where my players are at at the moment

A big chunk of Tantras - roughly half the city - became a dead-magic zone after the Time of Troubles. 2E lore mentions that this zone seems to be a permanent "hole" in the Weave, essentially impervious to efforts by Mystra's clergy to repair it. Also an attraction for criminals, fugitives, and others interested in securing themselves or their activities from magical intrusions.

Subsequent lore mentions Tantras rarely and this dead-magic zone not at all. Is it still there circa 3E or 4E Realmslore?

Eat lots of garlic - it keeps the elves and vampires away.
Don't stick your sword into dragons, you just don't know where they've been.
Avoid stepping on halflings. They stick to your boots, will smell awful, and are impossible to scrape off.
Ah, of course. Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.

Tantras became the capital of Vesperin in 4e. Vesperin is a new nation located in what is called The Vast, west of Impiltur. 4e sources do not mention any anti-magic zones or problems with casting in the city (or in Vesperin, for the matter), but in 4e there was no weave to begin with.

I guess that, with the new weave, that place would have been fixed.
