From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
- Take a good look. What you see here hasn't been seen in over two hundred years. Well, not by any living thing. And not exactly like this.
What is this place?
- This is the legendary Altar of Murdered Dreams. It's been underwater for over 250 years, hence the barnacles, general dank smell, and overall disarray.
What used to go on here?
- This was Orr's temple to their death god, Grenth, before it went to the bottom of the Sea of Sorrows along with the rest of the continent.
Who came here?
- Ritualists, water elementalists, assassins and necromancers would congregate here and perform their rituals to seek the favors of their patron god. Rough crowd, but devoted.
So now that it's been cleansed, what will happen to it?
- Probably be restored to its original purpose. Grenth still has his fans. Besides, what else would it be good for? Not many people want to live in a formal temple to the god of death and ice.
Altar of Murdered Dreams is kind of a grim name, isn't it?
- Grenth's temples tend toward the grim, but you can't name shrines to the god of death after flowers and bunnies. Grim architecture, too. Helps the necromancers relax and enjoy their rituals.
- I'll just do a little poking around on my own, thanks.
- Guess not.
- Good to have the place back up and running. I guess.
- I see.
- Ehn, you've seen one ruined temple to Grenth, you've seen them all.
