Trivia[edit]

  • In Norse mythology, Niflhel was a realm for people who died an unheroic death.
  • During the Beta, when you managed to capture the keep the message "That Keep is yours. Keep it!" appeared. When you lost it, the message "You couldn't keep the Keep" appeared instead.
  • A sign posted outside an entrance to the Mine area is written in New Krytan, saying: "Warning: Broodmother".
