The Cathedral of Eternal Radiance is the primary temple to Lyssa in Orr. It is circular in shape and is suspended over a body of water, Mirror Bay. The most faithful followers of Lyssa in Orr were buried here, in the ossuary within Blighted Arch. The temple has three seals on their own platform connected to the temple proper.

Besides being a place of worship of the twin goddess, the most loyal followers of Lyssa would be interred here. As part of the funerary rites, the mourners of the deceased would go through a three part ritual. During the first stage, they were encouraged to release the pain and rage they felt over their loss. The second stage, a largely ceremonial aspect that was observed by both rich and poor, was to offer valuable gifts to the priests to persuade them to resurrect the dead, though the gifts were always rejected. The third stage encouraged the family and loved ones to mourn for their loss and pray to Lyssa for relief, and to watch over the deceased in the Mists. Finally, the body would be taken to the cathedral's crypt.

Ambient dialogue[edit]

At the Augur's Grotto
Priory Explorer: We should hang him from his neck until he dies.
Lightbringer: Allow me to offer counsel. Wait for it.
Priory Explorer: Wait for what?
Lightbringer: If we keep giving him rope, he'll hang himself.
Priory Explorer: Is that some kind of metaphor? Because I want to see him suffocate. It's what he deserves!
Lightbringer: There are worse ways to go. If we wait, he'll find one of them.
Priory Healer: Women.
Lightbringer: I hear you. Never know if they're setting up a research lab for you, or some other guy, or for themselves.
Priory Healer: Right...
Vigil Crusader: Dragon! Where are you?
Agent: Patience.
Priory Healer: On that last mission, did you get what I asked for?
Agent: Of course.
Priory Healer: Oh, thank you, thank you. Sweets are so hard to find out here.
