The Straits of Devastation separate the Tyrian mainland from the dragon-corrupted wasteland that once was the human nation of Orr.

— In-game description

The Straits of Devastation is a high level zone in the Ruins of Orr. It straddles the Tyrian Mainland and the island nation of Orr. The events in the area focus on defending Fort Trinity and capturing the Temple of Balthazar, by moving pact reinforcements further into Orr. Three separate chain events are responsible for movement of the reinforcements to Rally Waypoint. Once at least one of the reinforcements has arrived, the Pact will start to rally towards the Altar of Betrayal. This triggers another chain of events, eventually leading to the capture of the Temple, the spawn of a Glorious Chest and the appearance of the Karma-merchant Tactician Deathstrider, one of the merchants in Tyria who sells Obsidian Shards.
