If SE decided to bring over a zone from Vanadiel comeplete with OST for a throwback of sorts, which would you want and why?

For me, oddly enough, I think it would be Rabao.

They've already made some zones similar (La Noscea is a lot like La Theine - both are karst landscapes).

If they were to do a zone wholesale though? Lufaise Meadows. Complete with the cliff overlooking the Tavnazia Arch with dragons swooping down at 4PM over the lake.

Xarcabard. A snowy mountainous region right at the edge of the ocean, that's an awesome atmosphere right there.

Also: Valkurm Dunes, Sarutabaruta

The one with the big waterfall in the Tavnazia area. Can't remember what it's called. Also I really liked the crags. I'd like to walk past or through another of those again.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Even though it didn't have music and the navigation was horrible, I've always liked Beaucedine Glacier and the rest of the Northlands. The dark crystal formations were awesome and you could subtly tell that something epic happened there in the past. I guess I'm just a fan of snowy, mountainous areas.. I suppose it's a good thing I just bought the Skyrim: Legendary Edition. XD

Pashow Marshlands?

---

(These are all going to be spelled wrong...)

I liked Zi'Tah, the Promys, the Citadel/Necropolis/Obaulette and Carpenter's Landing. There was something about areas like Carpenter's Landing that were small and somewhat insignificant, but carried it's own atmosphere.

Taking the raft, without teleporting and fast travel, let you soak in the world some more.

I hope that there are little areas like this that make you slow down a bit and appreciate the world.

----

I don't want to derail too much, but what makes a good zone is as much as the zone itself, as it is the destination to get there.

Sanctuary of Zi'tah and Xarcabard. There was a place in xarcabard that i used to go afk, That overlooked the part of the area that had the aurora borealis effect going that radiated out of the ground. I always wondered, did xarcabard always look so..... whats the word.... devoid i guess. the best comparison i can think of is the definition of absolute zero where in which there is no thermal activity whatsoever, in xarcabard there is no form of positivity. there is no happiness, joy, euphoria, excitement or any other positive emotion at all. its a creepy zone. all games need that type of zone where the atmosphere reeks of void.

Loved the music in Zi'tah, but as a zone I wasn't a huge fan of the layout. For me, I think the top would be both Lufaise Meadows and Misereaux Coast... and as for a dungeon type area, I'd love to see what they could do with either a Riverne style area or a Promivion type area with the new engine.

Oh yeah, there are a few more. Mostly because of the scenery and music:

-Rolanberry Fields. I have memories of a brave level 40 Samurai sacrificing himself so I could get to Jeuno during my first run there with my level 20 friends.
-Norg. I spent a lot of time there doing that mule trick with the scrolls of Utsusemi: Ichi. No shame.
-Pso'Xja. Diremites were my friend, for their blood.
-Aydeewa Subterrane. Good times with mages falling asleep in parties because of the peaceful music, lol.
-Caedarva Mire. Loved the eerie feel of the zone. Hated overcamping against True Sight Imps.
-Bibiki Bay. Post-ToAU when no one ever went here anymore, it was amazing going there to solo on BST. I felt old school Smiley: lol

I loved Norg and Tavnazia, but I think that's because in my head there was this very really feeling that I had traveled long and hard to get to these places and explore them.

Also, Lufaise Meadows was my favorite area, but that had to do with the music. Believe it or not, I don't see the appeal of the Zi'Tah music... but I never spent much time in that zone compared to other people.

Zi'Tah had some of the best lighting effects in any video game I've ever seen. I have a screenshot of a sunrises where the sky is golden and the forest is still black in front of it. Amazing. And when a thunderstorm hit and it turned a misty green / glowy purple.... yeah.

The music with the acoustic guitar is melancholy and matches the feel of the forest, but not the historical mood of it. The Elvaan considered it a "sacred" place, according to the lore, but the guitar music doesn't really feel sacred. (Now, Hall of the Gods? That has all the pomp and circumstance of a grand cathedral and sounds sacred.)

Actually other MMOs have quite a few huge bosses like that. WoW has a bunch that even have different target points such as head, and both arms. Tiamat from FFXI was pretty **** big iirc. It could be that it was just huge to me back then though. Compared to bosses in other games, he may be small.

Not sure but it would be epic no doubt. GoW had some of the greatest boss battles.
