The Pond of Tears was a small pond that could be found near the middle of the plains around the Battle of Bones.[1]


The Pond of Tears was a naturally occurring body of water that filled with runoff from the region's brief spring rains. The water of the pond was salty, not from tears, but because it filtered through bone and dissolved mineral dust.[1]

Rumors and LegendsEdit

Legend stated that the pond was actually filled with the tears from the dead and dying soldiers who perished at the Battle of Bones in 1090 DR.[1]
