Trove: Biomes and their map colours

Update September 2016: I included the latest biome, Jurassic Jungle. Update September 2015: I finally found the time to update all the pictures! There had apparently been enough complaints about some biomes being difficult to tell apart because the colours looked too similar, especially on the borders of the world map.

That means that the "1-15" does not tell you to leave Plains of Ashford once you're level 16 or 17. … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Regions by level
