- "An old, winding road from Wygol Village passes through this wood. Legends whisper that wayfarers lost along this forsaken path will find themselves in another world."
- —In-game description.
Ruvas Forest is a location in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. It is a path through the woods that connects Wygol Village to the Kalidus Channel. It appears on the map as a straight path from left to right, with no vertical relief. This stage has no boss.
Arguably one of the harder early game levels, Ruvas Forest consists of three long "rooms" of flat terrain filled with formidable combinations of enemies, like fleet footed Bone Scimitars backed up by slow, yet dangerous, Axe Armors and Nominons floating erratically above. Of note are the Necromancers unique to this area, who summon Zombies using Fidelis Caries, and Unes which blend well in the background and so are dangerous to an unsuspecting player.
This is not a good location to farm for chests, as they are placed far away from both exits and their contents are the same as the ones in the Monastery, which is easier to farm.
In Hard Mode, this area gets significantly harder with the addition of Winged Skeletons and gold Medusa Heads. It is especially tough at a fresh level 1 cap mode, where the player won't have any good equipment to compensate for the lack of leveling yet.
