The Clashing Seas, also called the Great Sea, is the large body of water within the Unending Ocean located between Tyria and Cantha. Parts of the Clashing Seas between northeast Cantha and southern Elona are riddled with sudden storms and cyclones, hidden reefs, and dangerous sea creatures, making direct navigation hard to most. Due to these storms and reefs, corsairs have long made refuge in these waters.
In the center of the Clashing Seas once lay the Battle Isles before they were sunk by the rising of Orr and Zhaitan's awakening in 1219 AE. Before Zhaitan's awakening, it was heavily sailed by humanity, and waylaid by krait.
The existence of sporadic Canthan sailors washing upon the Tarnished Coast suggests that Canthans still sail these waters. Some largos have extensive knowledge of Orr, implying they live relatively close, which would place them in the northern Clashing Seas. If so, then the deep sea dragon's encroaching influence has reached these waters.
|Following a battle in the Mists in 1332 AE, Kralkatorrik lost one of his wings and fell from a rift, which the dragon Aurene had created, into the Clashing Seas south of Orr alongside chunks of the realms of the gods. The impact created a new landmass called Dragonfall which was comprised of Kralkatorrik's body trapped under chunks of land from portions of Balthazar's Fissure of Woe, Grenth's Underworld and Melandru's domain.|
