Party size 8
Exit(s) Mourning Veil Falls

Long before the Great Houses formed the Council of Nobles and the Kurzick nation, Amatz Basin was the site of a fierce battle between the zu Heltzers and the Vasburgs. What they fought over, none can remember, but the fighting took a terrible toll. Even worse (from the Kurzick perspective), thousands of the dead were left to rot where they fell. In recent years, the bones of those fallen warriors have begun to resurface, and the Kurzicks blame Urgoz, a corrupted forest spirit, for their ghastly exhumations.

  • Complete exploration of the outpost will contribute approximately 0.3% towards the Canthan Cartographer title.


  • This mission was named after the guild The Amazon Basin. As part of the reward for the hard work of a select number of members on the Factions official strategy guide, ArenaNet named the challenge mission in honor of the guild. Note that the guild Zealots of Shiverpeak received an equal reward in having the challenge mission Zos Shivros Channel named after them.
  • This is the southernmost outpost in Cantha, and thus in Guild Wars as a whole.
