Heart on a rock?[edit]

Looking at the landmark page, it says Heart on a Rock, where is it? cant remember seeing something like that.. :/ Thepoisonx 19:21, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Also, does this 'landmark' deserve a link to a page if there isn't even a page to link it to?--Ph03n1x 06:53, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
I agree. Removed it. If someone can find ANY evidence that this is meant to be there (other than "omfg that cloud looks like a turtle!" kind of evidence), please replace it. 21:01, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Disagreed! this isn't just a "cloud looks like a turtle!" it is quite clearly what it looks like, a heart with two sets of in intials. a nice little easter egg if your into that sort of thing. not sure it shoud have landmark status tho. pic to come.

So any ideas on who the love birds are?
One of the programmers or designers working on Prophecies got married during development and this was included as a memento. --talk Large 13:45, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Rogue Bull[edit]

The Rogue Bull is there before the Mesmer's Burden quest, also. So it's before the quest and during... however if the quest is active and you kill the bull, no matter how much you rezone the Rogue Bull won't respawn until you abandon the quest. So before and kind of during. I'd edit the page and say something to this effect, but putting it eloquently (and succinctly) is beyond me at the moment. --Nkuvu 00:32, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Fixed. -- sig 01:05, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
This is my fault; apologies. I assumed that the bull was only there after accepting the quest without properly checking it out. Thanks for fixing this --IAmAI 14:07, 4 June 2007 (UTC)


Meaning? — Eloc 06:10, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Meaning, that the other person responds to them. But they're never displayed. Backsword 00:50, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
kk, ty. — Eloc 21:07, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
Is it that they don't exist or that Verata just doesn't like to talk? the emotes seem almost self explanitory Tearh 01:29, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
I agree, removing the bug note. -- 10:58, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Unofficial Landmarks[edit]

There are a number of official landmarks designated for Lakeside County:

  • Althea's Actors Stage
  • Ashford
  • Devourer cave

However, I think a few more could be added:

Abbey field
The large open area northeast of Ashford Abbey.
Abbey road
The road from Ascalon City to Ashford Abbey.
Ascalon lake
The large body of water near Ascalon City.
Ascalon field
The large open space just outside the Ascalon City portal.
Ashford Mill pond
The mill pond near Ashford.
Ashford river
The river between the Ashford Mill pond and Ascalon lake.  The upper end is at Ashford Mill pond and the lower end is at Ascalon lake.
Bandit's cove
The open area containing the bond fire above Abbey field.
Bandit's pass
The path between Ascalon field and Bandit's cove.
Devourer woods
The bushy and lightly wooded area between Devourer cave and Ascalon lake.
Devourer pass
The path between Devourer woods and the Regent Valley road.
Grawl hollow
The open area between Abbey field and the Green Hills road.
Green Hills road
The road to Green Hills County.
High crossroads
The intersection of Abbey road and Regent Valley road.
Plague Worm field
Another name for Abbey field.
Rabbit Rise
The elevated area above Ashford containing the one and only rabbit in Pre-Searing.
Regent Valley road
The road to Regent Valley.

Rogue Bull pond
The small body of water usually occupied by the Rogue Bull.

Wizard's Folly way
The road from the Ashford Mill pond to Wizard's Folly road.

There a few others that might have names as well.  The chambers and passageways of Devourer cave, the tunnel and open area off Ashford Mill pond, the various accessible islands, various hills, mountains, cliffs, waterfalls, cascades, shallows, deep water areas, and so on. --mtew 13:08, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

I find this a bit of an overkill. There's no need to give every single road it's own name, and the same goes for insignificant ponds and rivers. -- BlackHoleSun 15:29, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Stop and think. Most roads have a name so people can give directions easily. Same for other features. In fact, the list is a bit sparse. I didn't mention house or other building names for example. The main thing is that the names be shared. Besides, it is fun to think up easily recognizable names for things. I am NOT suggesting that any of these places be given their own page! The only real problem might be if ArenaNet objects. --mtew 18:15, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I think people are just fine without these names so dont add them and yes it is so much overkill its like killing all the enemies in a war single handedly and then killing all the people on your side. - Giant Nuker 13:34, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

anyone else seen the rit looking spirit in the graveyard?[edit]

has anyone?

Yep-- BVt 03:05, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Where is it? Is it targetable? Screens? Maybe the info belongs in trivia?--Ph03n1x 06:54, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
Go into Lakeside County and look through the fence near the statue of Dwayna, It isn't targetable. - Giant Nuker 15:47, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Not there anymore :( 09:27, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

It's still there, look again. - Giant Nuker 12:46, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
Anyone know why it's there or when it was first added? I don't remember seeing those kinds of ghosts in anything else that was released before factions, it's normally the blue human model, but I didn't get to play before Factions was released so I don't know if this ghost was in the game before then, or when it was added. It'd be good to have some mention of it in the article since for anyone familiar with GW it definately stands out as unusual. 22:08, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
Both the Fissure of Woe and the Underworld have NPCs with this appearance.--Deus 01:32, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
