Sea of Sorrows
- This article is about the Sea. For the Guild Wars 2 Novel, see Sea of Sorrows (book). For the consumable scavenger hunt reward, see Sea of Sorrows (consumable).
The Sea of Sorrows, once called the Bay of Sirens, is a sea surrounded by Kryta, the Southern Shiverpeaks, the Tarnished Coast, Orr, and the Strait of Malchor. When the kingdom of Orr sank in the Cataclysm, the region saw a huge upswing in shipwrecks. This, along with the sinking of Orr merging the Bay of Sirens with the Gulf of Jerick, led to it being renamed to its current name. When Zhaitan awoke and Orr rose, the risen kingdom caused a cataclysmic tidal wave that washed over nearby coastal regions, including Lion's Arch and the Battle Isles.
- In lore, Southsun Cove is within the Sea of Sorrows, but mechanically it is part of Kryta.
- The area where Southsun Cove is located was originally shown as open ocean on the world map.
