Online:The Hollow City
The wayshrine lies in the northwestern corner of the city, with the guild kiosks spanning the street heading east. A broad lake lies south of the wayshrine, and a gate heading out of the city is up the stone stairs in the west. A bridge crossing the lake lies near the wayshrine. The stable, Coldharbour Mounts, is on the other side of the lake. The local crafting writ turn-in area, Fizengig's Trading Emporium, is next to it. A pavilion lies south of Fizengig's Trading Emporium. When the city becomes populated by Coldharbour Survivors, a bard with a lute will sing for a crowd at this pavilion.

- The Mages Guildhall opens up when you rescue Vanus Galerion.
- The shops and services all open up once the objective Restore the Hollow City is complete. This happens after rescuing both the Ayleid King and the Great Mage, but it can also happen if you rescue thirteen people from the wilderness of Coldharbour.
- The homes open up as and when the related characters move in to them, as detailed below.
- Lady Clarisse Laurent, Telenger the Artificer, Kireth Vanos and Raynor Vanos move into the Consultants' House just inside the west gate once they are rescued from the Library of Dusk.

- Faraniel from Into the Woods can be found on the western bridge. Note that if you sided with the lamias, she will only appear if you completed the optional objective and did not kill any of the Shadow Walkers.
- Tzik'nith and the lamia from An Unusual Circumstance appear just north of the lake in the west of the city, by the south wall of the Consultants' House. They only appear here after Restore the Hollow City is complete.

- The village leaders from Soul Survivors can be found near the tavern if they escape from the Village of the Lost.
- Stibbons will finally make it to the city after being rescued from the Manor of Revelry, and will move into the Consultants' House. However, he will not have any dialogue unless you have also rescued him from the Spurned Peak. (The two quests can be done out of order.)
The Hollow City Wayshrine is located in the west of the city, near the pond and next to the exit to the Shrouded Plain. Unusually, the wayshrine glows with an orange flame.
