Isn't it weird that raising a large landmass from underwater, which would normally reduce the coastlines, actually caused everything to flood? 19:24, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Actually, removing the space a water can inhabit would raise the coastline, but probably not even by a couple inches. When Orr sunk the coastline went down. The same amount of land exists, and when Orr sunk, water got more area to cover. Normally, one would think that a land rises, a patch underneath opens, and water flows in there. But that isn't really the case, as Orr is just going to what it was, so either no water level changes, or the water goes up - but, again, not by much. Lion's Arch got hit with a tidal wave, the wave most likely went back and we have the same amount of land - give or take. The Battle Isles is the only land that flooded, to our knowledge. Due to Zhaitan, we don't know if it is still there. I somehow doubt it, personally. -- Konig/talk 20:43, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

well the jade sea in cantha was melting and perhaps joko was jelaous of zhaitan and dragged entire elona underwater that would cause floods.. but no matter how you go aqbout it... if water rises.... it should rise everywhere so every coastal region from gw1 should be underwater now.... 13:38, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

oh and if land disappers water level should fall.. but if it sinks.. that lands mass should go somewhere probably distributed evenly over a large area of the bottom of the sea, if thats the case there is a huge area where the sea can now be where orr used to be.. but the bottom of the ocean will be raised a little bit due to orr's landmass being distributed on the bottom of the sea.... meaning no real difference in water level and therefore no floods.. if u want to change the water level u will have to drop dirt from over the water level into the water or remove dirt from under the water and put it on top of the dirt already above water (creating hills and mountains 13:46, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Book name[edit]

Seeing as how the 3rd book name is, at the moment, apparently "Sea of Sorrows", will this article be moved to location, or will the book be listed as a novel? To clarify-- how will we differentiate titles? --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 18:16, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Game > Novels/Other merchandise. If Sea of Sorrows is indeed the third novel, its article title shall be Sea of Sorrows (novel). - Infinite - talk 18:50, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Kryta and the Sea of Sorrows[edit]

Since Claw Island - which is also located in the Sea of Sorrows - counts for the Kryta explorer archivement. I would suggest to moch the new zone to Kryta and declare the See of Sorrows a sub-region of Kryta. Thoughts on this? - Yandere Talk to me... 07:59, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

I was tempted to remove that entry tbh, as it's pure speculation at this point (as is denoting Sea of Sorrows the region on the zone's page). Thing is, there's two possibilities: 1) It's going to count for Krytan or Maguuma explorer (I say Maguuma because it's closer to Sparkfly Fen and Caledon Forest than Kryta, unlike Claw Island which is parallel to Bloodtide Coast and just south of Lion's Arch). Or 2) it'll be "regionless" - or rather, without an explorer achievement attached - (in which case just calling it Sea of Sorrows is easier, similar to saying Eye of the North is in the Far Shiverpeaks region, despite it not technically existing yet). And to note, just because Krytan explorer didn't get more areas needed to explore doesn't mean it won't count Southsun Cove, as Ascalon explorer has 2+ areas more than the achievement requires (was 3+ but they upped it to 176 from 175 in yesterday's update).
So what we have to do is, when the zone becomes accessible, either someone who hasn't had Krytan explorer maxed out goes there and sees if there's counting, or someone starts up a free trial account to check it out. Konig/talk 08:23, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
Since I will be leveled to 80, I will start counting. ^^ - Yandere Talk to me... 08:27, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
I'm betting that, given it doesn't affect world map completion, it won't affect any explorer either. As such, calling it as being in Kryta or Maguuma Jungle would be misleading, as the reason why we put the two zones "technically" in Steamspur Mountains as Maguuma Jungle is said explorer achievement. So Sea of Sorrows should thus be kept, even if it's an unofficial region. Konig/talk 08:34, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
I've created a more general discussion to help the wiki decide on what to do with this here. --Santax (talk · contribs) 12:52, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
