For the exploration of Skyward Reach, my long time friend and native Tyrian, Erolin is joining me. This area has a lot of history, and it leads to many other areas within the Crystal Desert.
When arriving here for the first time, my eyes were drawn to a large inaccessible area with a strange platform and stones with glowing runes. Later on after completing the three desert missions, I found out that this is your final ascension challenge in Tyria. Coming from Cantha, I had already gained the gods favor and could access The Mists, by becoming closer to the stars in Nahpui Quarter. However I believe it is much more challenging to achieve ascension in Tyria, and it’s easy for me to understand why so many have died trying to ascend.
