Ambient dialogue[edit]

Through the entire Grothmar Valley, the following announcements can be heard:

Minister of Morale: Become more than you are, and win a home with a legion! Gladia, get ready to showcase your skills at the Ooze Pit trials!
Minister of Morale: Gladia, prepare yourselves! The Ooze Pit offers a chance to flaunt your skill and win a home with a legion! Trials open soon!
Minister of Morale: Soon Metal Legion will make the Blood Stand shake. Don't miss the show!
Minister of Morale: Metal Legion fans! The band's coming to the Blood Stand—live and uncensored!
Minister of Morale: Metal Legion has taken the Blood Stand stage! As the cubs say, they'll fry your fur and bash your bones!
Minister of Morale: Now on the Blood Stand stage: Metal Legion! Go now! The mosh pit is murderous!
Minister of Morale: A bonfire of healing will rage soon at the Flame Legion camp! Join in, and burn away the past in the light of the future!
Minister of Morale: Let's commemorate the return of our Flame Legion sisters and brothers with a great conflagration!
Minister of Morale: Flame Legion sets things ablaze with truly feverish zeal! Don't miss this epic inferno. Head to their camp now!
Minister of Morale: The fires of unification have been lit! Head to the Flame Legion camp to bask in a renewed charr spirit!
Minister of Morale: Attention, celebrants! For your safety, the Doomlore Ruins are off limits! This isn't the time to stir up ancient spirits!
Minister of Morale: Due to spectral infestation, the Doomlore Ruins are off-limits during the celebration. That's an order.
The announcements below can be heard until completion of A Race to Arms
Bangar Ruinbringer: Your cubs are the next generation of legionnaires, centurions, and tribunes.
Bangar Ruinbringer: Show them what it means to be charr. Strength. Loyalty. Victory.
Bangar Ruinbringer: Charr! Celebrate future conquests, not just present triumphs. Anticipate the sweet taste of victory—and spit out the rest.
Bangar Ruinbringer: Blood Legion—finest infantry in the world, the charr's relentless right arm—has set up challenges throughout the festival.
Bangar Ruinbringer: Show the world what makes the charr a force to be reckoned with.
Bangar Ruinbringer: Iron Legion brought their war machines with them—destruction incarnate! Be sure to check out their expo.
Bangar Ruinbringer: And Ash is here, of course—if you can find them. Their quietly lethal methods are well worth learning.
Bangar Ruinbringer: I brought Flame Legion here to make amends. They are charr. Embrace them.
Bangar Ruinbringer: Let their numbers and very literal firepower strengthen us. Together we are mighty—and not to be crossed.

Notes[edit]

  • This zone is part of Ascalon, and counts for all Ascalon related daily achievements.
  • Experience gained on this map goes towards Path of Fire mastery tracks.
  • The Gauntlet of the Khan-Ur is a hidden jumping puzzle containing a vista and an Ancient Grothmar Coin. It is left of the meta reward gate (Vault of the Khan-Ur point of interest), and behind some orange vines along the wall. Players must light all 4 braziers to open the final reward chest.
    • Players do not need to do the full jumping puzzle to reach either the coin, or the vista. Both can be reached after players reach the water.
Khan-Ur's Gauntlet Vista does not count for Daily Grothmar Valley Vista Viewer.
