Zone

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
(Redirected from Explorable zone)
Jump to: navigation, search

A zone, also referred to as a map or explorable zone, is a type of location. Zones encompass a number of smaller areas; multiple zones form a region.

[edit] Exploration

Each zone comes with its own set of activities and objectives. In addition to the dynamic events populated in its borders, five measures of completion are specifically associated with a zone:

  • Skill point.png
    Skill Challenges often present a puzzle or a Veteran foe to a character, completion of which earns another Skill Point.
  • Complete heart (map icon).png
    Renown Hearts ask characters to complete tasks in their environs.
  • Point of interest.png
    Points of Interest mark out special locations to be explored.
  • Waypoint (map icon).png
    Waypoints provide instant, safe travel to places previously discovered - for a price.
  • Vista.png
    Vistas provide a graphical showcase of given locations in the environment.

Bringing up the world map will show a breakdown of the character's progress for the current zone. Upon map completion, the character receives a reward of some items and crafting materials, experience, and coin. This milestone is also acknowledged by the Tyrian Explorers Society with a letter of recognition.

[edit] Zones by level

Every zone has a recommended difficulty range, expressed as the recommended level player characters should reach before traveling there. The monsters and the recommended level for renown hearts and dynamic events in an area will be between the given levels. The dynamic level adjustment in the game will put characters at the recommended level for an area if their current level exceeds it. Recommended levels are generally expressed in multiples of 5.
