PvP status

Oribos, the Eternal City is a very ancient city located at the heart of the Shadowlands. The home of the Arbiter, it predates memory and is of unknown construction. It serves as a nexus between the various domains of the Shadowlands and is a gathering point for power brokers, wheelers, dealers, and soul-traders. Oribos serves as the central player hub of the Shadowlands.[2][1]

Description

Oribos is the arrival point for all souls who enter the Shadowlands. At this crossroads, the dead are judged by the impassive Arbiter before being sent to their final destinations, and Oribos' denizens swap gossip and anima—soulstuff that serves as both power and currency.[3]

Trivia

  • The name "Oribos" is inspired by the ouroboros, a symbol of a snake or dragon eating its own tail as a representation of the cycle of life and death.
