Tyria is a huge world. Most players haven’t gotten the Cartographer title for all campaigns, so we’ve all got places we haven’t been yet. Especially since I upgraded my video card, revisiting these beautiful or interesting areas is awesome just for looking around, even if there isn’t a quest or loot involved.
This spot in the Tarnished Coast is spectacular. Glowing plants, pools, crazy critters… this area is almost like Pandora from the Avatar movie.
According to the GW2 lore, deep in the jungle the Pale Tree will give birth to the Sylvari some years down the line. You can visit this tree and its centaur prophet anytime. Not really any quests out here, though there are a few items people farm. Its worth the travel just for fun (and hey it might help with your cartographer title).
Deep in Modock caverns of Vabbi (in Elona aka Nightfall) there is a secret and glorious stash of corsair treasure, aka Do Not Touch. Not to be confused with Nightfall’s Buried Treasure, this does give you some cash/items, it is also an awesome place to check out or show to new guildies.
(Izari’s note: There are actually a few of these all around the world! Read up on them. But be careful: The re-spawn time resets if you get too greedy.)
• Grendich Courthouse
• Port Sledge
• Maguuma Stade (what the hell is a Stade anyways?)
• Deldrimor War Camp (ok, so there’s a quest there, but I bet a lot of people don’t know its there)
Comment grabber: So how about you? What awesome secret places have you discovered? Or, what type of little easter egg type places would you like to see in gw2?
