Balamb Island is the starting place for all new players on GraalOnline Classic. The island was added shortly before the release of honor points. It's used as a tutorial island to teach newcomers the basics of the game.
Balamb Island features a small port on the southern section which includes a practice spar arena and a bomb/arrow vendor. Located on the eastern section of Balamb Island is a small town with several NPC inhabitants. The center of Balamb Island features large patches of grass, often used for farming. The western coast of Balamb Island holds the bridge that will take beginning players to the mainland.
