Note: to get the “Spruceless” achievement, you have to skip Spruce Head. If you want that achievement, go to Ballast Harbor and then make your way to Yarrowmouth & Kingdown Isle & just skip this. Devana’s Barrier that you get from Spruce Head Shrine is kinda awesome though, so I personally wouldn’t want to skip this.
