Dreadnought’s Drift is a small area but packed with enemies. Knowing this, I waited a few moments when I reached the end of the passageway from Snake Dance. My patience paid off when I noticed a dozen Tundra Giants pass in front of us. If Erolin and I had continued forward we would have had to deal with those Tundra Giants and a large group of Blessed Griffons as well.

I have been dreading this moment ever since I arrived in the Southern Shiverpeaks. Exploring Snake Dance itself does not bother me, but to easily access the two areas beyond it, Dreadnought’s Drift and Lornar’s Pass, I must continue on my journey immediately after I finish Snake Dance.

Continuing on with my friends Angela, Kaileen, N. Squirrel, and Azrael we arrived in Mineral Springs to find a much different atmosphere than Tasca’s Demise.

The small but still quite dangerous area I’m exploring today is known as Tasca’s Demise, so named after the famous explorer: Marshall Tasca, who fell off a cliff somewhere in this very area. Even though I am originally from Cantha, I heard of his journey across most of Tyria while training on Shing Jea. It is people like Marshall Tasca and Marshall Whitman that inspire me to keep exploring the world we live in and taking risks in doing so. I can’t say it’s the same for every adventurer I’ve met, but many of my friends look up to them as well.

Needless to say, a few of my friends were more than willing to help me explore this area. Kaileen, N. Squirrel, Azrael and Angela all wanted to make sure I didn’t meet the same fate as Marshall Tasca.
