Temple is a common term that players give to certain locations in the Ruins of Orr that are well-known for meta events that result in world event chests. Each location is marked on the map by a pale blue temple icon and includes an associated waypoint, Point of Interest, skill challenge, Karma Vendor, and statue. The temples are named after the Human Gods: Balthazar, Lyssa, Dwayna, Melandru and Grenth.
 Access to services
Each temple area is affected by status of the local dynamic events. Many waypoints in Orr, including those within the temples, are initially contested, i.e. held by the forces of Zhaitan. This also means all statues of the corresponding god throughout Orr are corrupted by Zhaitan's influence, which can be seen as a green veil in the area near a statue; within the veil, players will suffer from an environmental effect that depends on the affected temple. Players can help the Pact to retake the temple by completing the local meta event; services, including the waypoint, are only available while the allies control the area.

 List of locations
Each temple's location is noted by the area's scout.
- Abaddon's temple, the Cathedral of Hidden Depths, is not accessible in the open world and therefore does not include an associated meta event or environmental effect.
