Previously uninhabited, the Tarnished Coast is the coast of the Maguuma Jungle. It is where the Asura now reside, forced from the Depths of Tyria by the Destroyers. It currently acts as their staging ground for their stand against the Great Destroyer. It is full of ruins that have been renovated by the Asura, and is home to ground that is brimming with magical energies, and in turn levitates. Some of this magic is harnessed for the Golems.

The architecture of the Tarnished Coast is a combination of preexisting architecture with Asuran modifications. It is unknown which race or civilization built the architecture, but one thing is for sure, there was once a civilization situated in the Tarnished Coast before the Asura arrived there.[1]
