Kasshyyyk, commonly known as Wookie, is an area styled after the Wookies, from the movie Return of the Jedi. This area was created by Goose and Garau and is located on Orient Road, west of the Monestary, and about 1/3 of the way to Nippon. Entrance to Kasshyyyk is restricted by the Immortals to levels 50 and higher, and is recommended for levels 80 - 99. Characters in the 50 - 80 range could survive there if grouped properly (warriors and clerics, for example).

The layout of the area is one tall trees connected by branches. There are upper and lower main levels, plus a small third level. The only aggressive mobs in the area are Burning Wookies, Treasure Guards, and Kshyy vines. All aggressives are sentinal, but quite dangerous. Wookie dogs are guards, so they will attack you if they walk in during a fight. Recently wookies have been upgraded so they attack with scalp and assault, with no lag on either, so they are quite a bit tougher than they used to be.
