According to http://go-dl1.eve-files.com/media/corp/Verite/influence.png -

Cobalt edge: Upper east side, where Mostly Harmless and Rule of Three are the key players.
Outer Passage: East side, Ka-Tet's hang out, right above Cache.
The Spire: Just to the left of Outer Passage, and sovereignty looks like a mix of RA/Ultima Rati0/Intrepid Crossing/Chaos Incarnate
Etherium Reach: East of molden heath, North of Great Wildlands, home of Ethereal Dawn
The Kalevala Expanse: Smash/Roadkill/Pure territory, accessible from Germinate and Etherium Reach.
Malpais: Home to IRON and others, next to Kalevala Expanse.
Perrigen Falls: East of Malpais, west of Outer Passage, home to Dark Matter Coalition
Oasa: near Perrigen Falls, also home to DMC, as well as others.

The Spire is an actual place in WoW.
Etherium Reach and Cobalt Edge I am unsure about, as I haven't played in 10 months+, but they could be. One of the main ores in WoW is Etherium, and alot of places have names after it. Cobalt is a race you often meet, so "Cobalt Edge" is also very likely to be an actual palce.


The only true part of your post is the first. But I'm sure a host of other worlds created, fantasy and sci-fi have places named that.

No ore is named Etherium, and there are no places named after the variation you may be thinking of. Also.. 'Kobold'. Not cobalt. Kobolds are fantasy creatures. Cobalt is a metal used in high strength alloys.

Kalevala Expanse?!? You clearly made a huge mistake here by using "Kalevala".

As a finnish citizen I'm very mad at CCP for using that word. Atleast I'll make somebody within CCP read the whole Kalevala for the audience at the next Fanfest Twisted Evil

It's obvious that Goons had no hand in selecting any of these names.

Mainly because there's no "Bat Country" and/or anything involving the name "Dargon"

What is a "Oasa"?

Does it stand for "Observer's Assessment of Sedation and Anesthesia"?

If so, it's pretty much what I was doing when I lived there


Orbiting A Spacerock Again.

Not much to do out there but pound 'roids like Preparation H, but it does pay well.

the names were never going to please everyone, no matter what they were called, of course not everyone is going to like every name.

So they settled for World of Warcraft names, because everyone loves WoW?


and what would you have named them then?

dont get me wrong, some of them are pretty awefull, but i dont think we can really complain tbh, at least the playerbase got imput.


I've got nothing against "Outer Passage" or "Oasa".

But seriously, "Etherium Reach", "Cobalt Edge" and "The Spire" are all WoW related.

Edit: Dictionary-fix


I had a hand in those. But My design for 7k was Reach, And H3 was Edge. But unfortunately others suggested Cobalt and Etherium. CCP just Fused em :(

I wanted Bat Country or Hammertown, but nobody listens to me.

Most of these really are, honestly, terrible. It's like someone 's trying to attract WoW players by copying the names.

Honestly what was so bad about having a region called "W E L C O M E T O H A M M E R T O W N" in block capitals spaced out just like that? It'd have been cool. Especially if it popped up on the screen at random intervals for no reason just to remind you that you are in fact, in Hammertown.

It's obvious, they picked these ridiculous names for only one reason, and that is to avoid invasion of these regions.

I for one would not like to say: I live in Wicked Creek.
