Beginning 18th March, 2014
At long last, the siege of Lion’s Arch has been broken and Scarlet’s reign of terror is at an end. Despite Scarlet’s death, all is not well: Lion’s Arch is little more than a smoldering husk, citizens are still camped near Vigil, the Durmand Priory, and Stormbluff Isle, and the cost of victory was high.
After the Storm
Lion’s Arch will always remember those heroes who rallied to her defense and freed her from Scarlet’s grasp. Three makeshift memorials have been raised to honor the fallen, praise heroes, and attempt to reunite separated families. Services have not been moved back into Lion’s Arch, which currently plays home to looters and ashes.
While the city is free, the road to recovery is uncertain and fraught with difficulty.
At the Dead End Bar
Marjory, Kasmeer, Rox, Braham, and Taimi are gathered at the Dead End Bar in Divinity’s Reach. Visit them to check in and see how they’re faring in the aftermath of the final battle against Scarlet.
Scarlet’s war raged from the peaks of the frozen Shiverpeaks to the depths of the Maguuma jungle, spreading ruin throughout Tyria in pursuit of one grand scheme. Even as she died, Scarlet’s plan succeeded. If you missed the final encounter with Scarlet Briar or want to revisit the historic moment, you can view the epic finale cutscene from the Battle for Lion’s Arch on our YouTube channel.
