So no like GW1 where Tyria, Elona, Cantha, and the Domain of Torment, were on separate map spaces, and they have kept that true all the way through EoD. I would guess any Mists heavy story would be primarily set on Tyira, though have us going into the Mists fairly often in story instances and the like. Probably set it out west, on that landmass marked by the trade routes on the map in the Priory back in LWS2. I would make it incorporate a lot of the Utopia design aesthetics, a very central/south America vibe. Tyria itself is supposed to be Europe and the Middle East, Elona is Africa, and Cantha is Asia, so we need an "Americas" setting to round out the world. I kinda waffle back and forth on dev quotes like that. I agree they are important to keep in mind, but at the same time development teams change and what they can do expands. If anytime would be the right time to break the mold and do something new it would be an expansion. Though I do still hope we stick to the world map.
