  • It is the only place where players who only own Guild Wars Factions can take part in the Wintersday event Dwayna vs Grenth and the Halloween event Costume Brawl.
  • The banners at the top of the stairs by the merchant feature the profession icons of Warrior, Ranger, Monk, and Elementalist.
  • The inaccessible portal in the back of the temple seems to lead to Zaishen Challenge. (If you zone from there that's where you are placed.)
