The game officially begins within the Hall of Heroes located in Timberdale where Darby explains Vexx's quest to locate the Wraithhearts scattered across the area. Timberdale features a woodland theme with waterfalls, mountains, and a cluster of trees. Rocks constantly bombard the area, with shattering rocks showering the location periodically. Fortunately this is only an effect and doesn't actually harm Vexx if he is near a shattering rock. The area contains 10 Hearts, even though Darby only mentions there being four.
The most notable feature of Timberdale is the colossal tree that features a small village overrun by Grimkins. It contains various different challenges to navigate, including Sumo Kin's Arena.
Timberdale alone is home to a number of special places, including:
Submarilis is a secret area found above the Hall of Heroes. It consists of a courtyard, three surrounding towers, and a larger tower, or minaret, standing in the centre. It was initially planned as a separate level, but time constraints led to its inclusion as a sub-area in Timberdale instead. The area outside the courtyard, including whirlpools and swimming manta rays, was removed. The three surrounding towers have strange rings Vexx must swim through, causing a Wraithheart to appear in the central courtyard, while a second Wraithheart is found by scaling the central Tower. Once Vexx has entered Dragonreach, a secret Heart can be found by entering Submarilis once more.
It contains the following enemies:
