This area is named after the large frozen lake in the middle, a place the Norn shun due to a foreboding sense of dark magic. To the north are icy caverns that house a shrine to the spirit of Wolf. The south are where tribes of Modniir centaurs roam.

Notes[edit]

  • Frozen within the lake itself is a large creature. It is a champion of Jormag, one of the Elder Dragons to be featured in Guild Wars 2.
  • Just south of the Norrhart Domains exit is a path that leads to a small enclosed valley. A rabbit stands at the start of the path. It will start downwards to the center when you approach. Be warned that this is a trap. If you follow the rabbit to the center, Nulfastu Earthbound will spawn with about five dozen Vaettir around you and along the path. These are levels 15 to 20 in normal mode. To be safer, you can send someone to trigger the ambush while you wait atop the path and then fight your way down. Note that once triggered, the path also contains additional hidden Vaettir. For exploration purposes, you can circle the valley without triggering the spawns; just keep away from the center.
  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 430 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 330 to 527.
    • The area around the frozen lake is the most dangerous; be aware that many small groups of Chilling Wisps circle the frozen lake in a counter-clockwise direction.
    • If you wish to fight less, avoid triggering the rabbit hole trap in the southeast.
    • There are many other spots where hidden Vaettir will spawn, most notably in corners, around clumps of trees, and the graveyard between the two Sifhalla exits.
    • If you talk to Kilroy Stonekin, additional Stone Summit will spawn in their encampment.
    • Koren Wildrunner's group patrols a long route around the frozen lake and sometimes the surrounding areas as well.
    • Sometimes you need to kill charmable animals to complete the vanquish.

Trivia[edit]

  • A Drakkar is the name for an old Viking longboat.
