The Mistlock Sanctuary, a place that exists simultaneously in both Tyria and the Mists.

Official description

Mistlock Sanctuary is a lounge accessible by using Mistlock Sanctuary Passkey, unique among other lounges for having a Fractals of the Mists entrance portal and Fractal vendors. It features most of the standard services and crafting stations, and, alongside Armistice Bastion and Thousand Seas Pavilion, is of the few lounges that exist within their own unique instance. Other notable features include a fast travel special action skill, lowered gravity, and a hidden minigame.

A collection of rocky scraps of land floating in a low-gravity void, Mistlock Sanctuary is a safe haven within the Mists for Mistwalkers and Fractals of the Mists explorers that seems to have been colonized by asura similar to Dessa's Krewe. Perhaps due to the unstable release of magic following the deaths of two Elder Dragons, it has established a foothold in Tyria, allowing visitors to easily come and go.

Getting there[edit]

Access requires one of the two types of Mistlock Sanctuary Passkey:

The panel which begins the bouncing ball game.

Players may interact with the control panel at the base of the tree in the northeast corner to spawn a Globolla Marble, similar to those found during Viirastra's encounter in the Shattered Observatory. Successfully bouncing the marble back to its tree (by ensuring a player is present at each bounce) will cause it to become stationary and begin glowing; interacting with it at this point will result in the following:


  • It is not possible to park characters in the Mistlock Sanctuary and then transfer the pass to other characters via the bank. Upon logging back onto the character without a pass, they will be expelled from the map.
    • Placing the permanent pass into a Shared Inventory Slot will allow all characters simultaneous access to the Sanctuary.
  • It is possible to waypoint out of the Sanctuary by navigating to the lower layers of the world map.
  • Selecting "Return to my previous map" from the central portal will teleport you to your exact previous location; for example, the end of a jumping puzzle you were at. The same is true when using the pass again.
    • This fails if the character has gone to its home instance using the Home Portal Stone, or to their Guild Hall, and then returned to the Mistlock Sanctuary.
  • The map doesn't have the day and night cycle and it is constantly 11:00 noon of Tyrian time.
  • Players inside the lounge will show up on the world map as being on the island directly below Claw Island.
  • Players will be affected by Break Out!.png Cosmic Energy while in this map, allowing them to jump higher. They will also have access to the special action skillCelestial Dash.png Nova Launch.
  • Gliders will rise upwards. There is an invisible ceiling to prevent them from rising too high. Gliders that are already above the ceiling will descend to it.
  • There is an invisible "floor" beneath "street" level of the islands but above their lowest level; players who fall off the edge will bounce up and down for a while until they find the "resting" level, and can move (float) around normally. "Jumping" while floating like this will launch the player into the air by activating the player's glider.
