Beginning February 18, 2014
Scarlet is on the attack! After months of preparation, the arch-villain descends on Lion’s Arch with all of her deadly forces. Now is the time to rally together and defend the besieged city.
Save the Citizens
As Scarlet fills the port city with lethal miasma, your priority is clear: you must join forces with the Lionguard to evacuate as many of the citizens and merchants of Lion’s Arch as possible. From the great Commodore Lawson Marriner down to the smallest child, people are the most precious resources of Lion’s Arch.
Tyria’s three orders, the Durmand Priory, the Vigil, and the Order of Whispers, have joined with the Lionguard to set up temporary shelters to house the city’s refugees. Visit these camps to talk with refugees and ensure the safety of the fleeing citizens. The Vigil Keep has become an impromptu service hub; head there to find relocated Lion’s Arch vendors.
Claim Your Rewards
As you help citizens flee Lion’s Arch, gather up lost belongings and return them to refugees in the camps. Collect supplies from your foes, which you can use to craft new back items. More rewards await those who come to the defense of Lion’s Arch, from new utility feasts to endless quaggan tonics! The more citizens you save, the higher your reward level – the most effective defenders even have a rare chance at rewards from past releases!
