The rugged uplands of the Steamspur Mountains are overshadowed by the power of a singular great mountain. This is the wildest of lands, far from the prying eyes of the races of Tyria.

— In-game description

Mount Maelstrom is a high level zone on the southern tip of the Steamspur Mountains. It's named after a massive volcano that caused the previously snow-capped region to melt. The Crucible of Eternity, an Inquest lab, can be found here as well.

Notes[edit]

This zone does not give a mail message from the Tyrian Explorers Society upon completing the map. Rewards are unaffected.
  • An area that is often overlooked is the Magmatic Conjury.
  • Two areas in Mount Maelstrom are unobviously important to gaining the "Maguuma Jungle Explorer" Achievement — Dierdre's Steps and Cubular Fells
  • Although lore-wise this zone is part of the Steamspur Mountains, mechanically it is part of the Maguuma Jungle region and is included for achievements like Maguuma Explorer and Maguuman Killer.
