The Tides (with a capital T) is the "alignment" system, but that will also affect the world - some people can feel the Tides, the Last Castoff will have some different abilities depending on the Tides he follows, some items can respond to Tides, ...

Now if there'll be "sea tides" (without a capital T) involved in the game, I'm not sure, but if they are they'll likely share no connection with the Tides.

Definitely a worthy goal, but I doubt TTON will have the scope necessary to actually succeed in unlocking all the secrets ;) Some of the mystery will remain forever...
At least, on screen... *grins* But, as wise man said in Conan, this is another story.

That looks like it's in the aforementioned Oasis, just at the edge of the hemisphere of water.

Also worth pointing out that the continent is actually the only one on the planet - one of the prior worlds had the terraforming technology to merge all of Earth's landmasses together into a star-shaped supercontinent. And the circles, like the Clock of Kala, aren't icons. Those are to-scale.

Yup, I just gotta love those circles :D Once I saw the whole supercontinent map I was like "Oh shit, there are three more of them?"
