Bitterfrost Symphony : GW2

Partly because it's IntPiPoMo but mostly because I don't have time to write a proper post, Inventory Full presents spoiler-free scenes from the great new map, Bitterfrost Frontier.



It's a good-sized map, around half as big as Frostgorge Sound, which lies immediately to the south.



Where Frostgorge is particularly bleak and barren, all icefields and glaring white. Bitterfrost, despite being further north and even colder, enjoys a much more varied environment.

There are forests on a scale not seen anywhere else in The Shiverpeaks. The storms are equally over-sized. White-out conditions are not uncommon.


Hot springs encourage bursts of green among the blue-white snow and dark pines. Rivers flow freely. This attracts quaggans but I guess you can't have everything.

The color palette is rich and varied, especially at night.

Or in the extensive cave systems.

As you would expect, the Kodan are a strong presence here.

And as they say, if you can't beat them...

  1. As someone who doesn't have access to this area right now, I appreciate these lovely pictures a lot. Also, no idea you're participating in IntPiPoMo. Cool!

    1. I hashtagged every post this month that had new screenshots in it but I did it in Labels which I bet no-one ever looks at! It's a really nice map - all the recent new maps bode well for the expansion, whenever that comes.
