Statue of a warrior in the far northwest, facing unknown lands.


The Lonely Vigil is a gigantic statue of a female Warrior located in the south west side of The Arid Sea. From a distance, the statue appears to be standing upright. When approached, the statue instantly breaks down, and only the boots remain upright. After this, the body serves as a bridge between two mesas and provides access to the Forgotten NPC Siliss Yassith.

The statue can also be seen from the Crystal Overlook in Elona. Observed from a distance, the statue seems to be moving back and forth, as if it's about to fall over; however you never actually see it fall. One moment it's up, the next moment it's down, without any animation.

  • This statue and the Ancient Weapon were originally meant to be a part of a quest. However, time and design changes at the last minute ended up seeing this prop put into the game as it currently is.
  • The name of this landmark comes from the gw.dat.
