A region is a named collection of different types of locations, including towns, outposts, missions, dungeons and explorable areas with a common theme. This theme can be seen as represented by the region's loading screen (with the exception of missions).

Regions usually have a shared set of creatures, a key and chest pair, and a common section in the quest log. Sometimes one or more of these factors are instead shared by a smaller set of locations that are not technically a region; these areas are known as "sub-regions".

The skills Edification and Heart of the Norn are triggered by being in the Tarnished Coast and Far Shiverpeaks regions, respectively.

During the Anniversary Celebration, there are twenty unique regions which reward a player with a Proof of Legend upon completion of a cooperative mission within.
