Meet the Key of Ahdashim on June 11

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on June 04, 2019

You’ve entered the Mystic Forge, bested the fire djinn Qadim, and overcome his challenges—but Zommoros’s rival is still at large. Now, prepare to enter the ancient city of Ahdashim and learn what secrets lie buried by the centuries.

The next Guild Wars 2 raid, the Key of Ahdashim, arrives next week on June 11! Fine-tune your build, make sure your gear can weather the elements, and check out the video above.

Let’s Get Shiny!


Qadim’s machinations are causing ripples outside the Mystic Forge, touching certain world bosses in Central Tyria with condensed ley energy. From June 11 to June 25, defeat these powerful enemies to mine colorful crystal essence. Bring essences to skritt near the Mystic Forge to create shiny weapons—and then consult with the skritt to learn how you can make your shiny weapons even shinier.
