A location in the Echovald forest, this is a sign that the Luxons are pushing into Kurzick territory. This map gives an advantage to the Kurzick, as the control points are closer to the Kurzick base. Kurzick players often get a head start capturing points. The map offers an extra NPC for the Elite Necromancer, Elite Monk, and Elite Mesmer shrines closest to the Kurzick base.
It has been known for the Luxon team to push the Kurzicks back to their own base, and hold them there. If this happens, the teams should split up, one taking the east portal, one the west, and one diverting the Luxons attention at the center.
