- A Mastery Insight located in this area can be seen as an icon in the world map. However, this insight does not currently exist as an interactable object in game because it is tied to an upcoming release in The Icebrood Saga Episode 5: Champions; it can only be communed with in Dragon Response Mission: Fields of Ruin once that instanced mission has been added in game.
