ToV Zone Names

    I've mentioned this in the past but it bears repeating.

    Why does Daybreak use the same zone names for different zones? I see no reason at all unless they wish to encourage confusion.

    Just why? Is it too hard to call them "Frozen Shadow Tower", "The Eastern Desolation", "The Great Cleave", "The Mines of Ry'Gorr", "Velketor's Maze", "Tormented Kael Drakkel", "Caverns of Crystal"?

    I was confused when I took the portal to "Froststone" and it said, "You have entered Crystal Caverns".

    On a personal note, how in the world do I name the zones on my wiki? I guess I have to use "The Tower of Frozen Shadow (Torment of Velious)". Which kind of works, although it is quite awkard.

    So, why is it called Froststone in some places and Crystal Caverns in others?

    Believe Froststone is the dwarf city while crystal caverns is the zone name

    Perhaps we should have used slightly different zone names to help differentiate them from their original versions.

    Froststone is to Crystal Caverns as Kelethin is to Greater Faydark.

    They are the same places, just at different times.

    I get you but New York city used to be New Amsterdam. Same place, different time.

    You'd imagine that a time traveller who was meticulously documenting their travels would come up with their own naming scheme so their journal wasn't quite so messy.

    And yet you managed to give EW a distinctive name in RoF, but not in this expansion? Seems a little...lazy...to me.
