Dreadnought's Drift is the name given to the small, relatively open bottleneck between Lornar's Pass and Snake Dance. The area is densely populated with large groups of giants and Stone Summit, but the true terror of this area is Maw the Mountain Heart, who makes its lair here along the eastern cliff faces. Although it seems an unlikely place, a statue of Dwayna can be found here, visible on the map as a pale ring along the southern cliff face.

  • Complete exploration of this area contributes approximately 0.4% to the Tyrian Cartographer title.
  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 115 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 111 to 124 foes.


  • Early in the days of Guild Wars, there used to be two chests in this area which required no key to open. The Lost Strongbox, and the Frozen Chest. Out of each chest about 5-10 weapons and armor pieces would drop. This was a very well-kept secret but was eventually taken out for obvious reasons.
