Out of all the norn I’ve met so far, Sif Shadowhunter is my favorite. I love meeting her challenges and then spending a good afternoon having a heated conversation about our accomplishments. She certainly hasn’t killed any gods, but that doesn’t stop a norn from finding something to boast about. Today’s exploration of Jaga Moraine will get me one step closer to gaining her respect, as I continue to slay the legendary foes of the Far North. So with my friend Elwin, we left the outpost and began our journey.

I spotted a passage that leads into the Depths of Tyria earlier during my exploration of Drakkar Lake, but didn’t investigate it until now. Two dwarves: Outrunner Remlok and Sage Bollnar stand by the passage waiting for brave souls to help them. Inside this Sepulchre of Dragrimmar lies the legendary Anvil of Dragrimmar, said to have been used by Droknar himself to craft wondrous weapons. Of course this anvil was heavily guarded, so I brought along a powerful mesmer to keep the awaiting ice elementals frustrated while I fill their bodies with arrows. Malory K. presented himself as an invaluable asset, I hope this is the start of a beautiful friendship!

I’ve yet to finish helping the norn and gaining their trust, but Ogden insisted I visit the Battledepths. King Jalis Ironhammer and the other dwarves are waiting for us there until we can amass an army against the destroyers. With such short notice, I was only able to persuade Kudos S.

Heading west from the Eye of the North, we entered the Battledepths. At first it’s quite dark, and then not too much farther along sunlight beams in. Aside from the underground passage way outside Kaineng City, I have yet to explore the many Depths of Tyria opened up to us.

On my first pass through this area to reach Sifhalla, I was surprised at how massive the area seems to be. I wondered if all of these “new lands” contained areas with borders as big as this. For a while I was worried that no other adventurers would want to accompany me in the quest to explore every corner of Drakkar Lake. Luckily my friends Elwin and Xiara felt like taking on a challenge.

Right outside the gates of Sifhalla there is a large entrance into a cave system and another path that leads into open wilderness. I decided to revisit the cave before exploring the rest of Drakkar Lake.
