Fortunes Vale, the map that went missing

This one is long overdue, but with the second anniversary of this mysterious map showing up in the DAT only to disappear just a few weeks later it would be a great moment to talk about it. You can find information about events, a higher resolution map and 10 minutes of audio on my site. I'll try to update the wiki page later, but to give you a tldr:
  • Fortunes Vale appeared to be set up for 3 competing teams. Each team escorted a single NPC through its story:
    • Lionguard Tirzah, a human female on a scouting mission
    • Horvath the Horrible, a norn male looking for glory
    • Skymaster Loew, a male Asura, doing science stuff
  • On the map you would find several biomes, each with unique events and enemies. Including:
    • Skritt
    • Tree Bandits
    • Ogres
    • Karka
    • Dredge
    • "Crazed"
    • Elementals

The data

Rata Sum is migrating

I was working on my Historical Guide and suddenly figured out why Rata Sum got an updated version in the beta / stress test patch. They moved the entire map about 10% to the South.

Updated Verdant Brink map with Waypoints and POI's

 I've just updated the Verdant Brink map showing all waypoints and points of interest with the version found on the API.

SAB related content

Now that April fool's is over I feel like I can post this model (found in the beta patch) without getting your hopes up for SAB returning on this specific day.
To keep this post short and to the point: as mentioned many times before by Anet SAB will return one day and it looks like they're working on new stuff as well.
