Guild Wars 2 Photo Challenge: Day 5
I don’t know what exactly it is about this zone that enchants me so much. Some of it is downright annoying, mostly the dredge areas (Groznev Delve) and the glacial scar running down the right side of the zone. But there’s just something about it, a sort of beauty that enchants; serene despite the danger. Maybe it’s that it reminds me of Skyrim and memories of watching the aurora play over the Sea of Ghosts. (I’m sure it doesn’t help that I have Skyrim music in my custom GW2 playlists.)
I absolutely love the underwater parts of this zone. I don’t know if they’re the deepest ones in the game but just stepping off an iceberg and looking down into the depths and seeing this… It takes the breath away. The trench in Dimotiki Waters is perhaps my absolute favorite place in the entire game.
You also can’t forget the kodan sanctuaries. Each one is huge and imposing but once you’re inside (discounting HoTW, of course) they feel welcoming and as warm as one could get on a gigantic floating iceberg.
There are also memories here. Yak’s Bend, Borlis Pass, Iron Horse Mine. I love searching the world of GW2 for historical places and while the ones in this zone might not be the most interesting they’re still there.
So, come for the Claw, stay for the scenery.
