by The Guild Wars 2 Team on April 08, 2019


If you haven’t visited Tyria for a while, welcome back! It can be overwhelming to start catching up, or to know what you’ve missed—so to help you get up to speed on Living World Season 4, we’ve got livestreams, guides, and free or discounted items in the Gem Store, focusing on one episode per week. This week we’re tackling the third episode of the season, “Long Live the Lich.”
