Beginning January 21, 2014
The heroes of Tyria face a battle on two fronts; their beloved land is imperiled as never before. From under the sun-baked sands of Bloodtide Coast, a gigantic, three-headed jungle wurm has arisen to threaten all who come within its domain. In the mountains of Lornar’s Pass, Scarlet’s latest creation – a towering, mechanical monstrosity – is wreaking destruction.
The Great Jungle Wurm
The incessant pounding of the mysterious probes has woken up big trouble: an oversized jungle wurm with three giant heads is ravaging Bloodtide Coast! Band together with other heroes to confront and defeat the ravening threat! Be warned: this battle will challenge even the best and bravest that Tyria has to offer! Put your skills to the ultimate test in this epic encounter that will require savvy, determination, and large-scale coordination.
Defeat the Twisted Marionette
Scarlet’s latest masterpiece is an oversized mockery of Queen Jennah’s watchknights, a huge, twisted marionette. Seek the menace out in Lornar’s Pass, where you’ll have to coordinate attacks along five main channels and disarm the marionette before it charges and fires a lethal aethercannon. You’ll have to deal not only with the marionette itself, but with the wrath of Scarlet’s combined armies.
Reap Your Rewards
Fighting Tyria’s foes is by no means easy, but it comes with great rewards. Brave adventurers who face down the threat of the great jungle wurm have a chance for a wurm-themed rifle skin, a new ring or amulet, and even special ascended armor components like the Wurmslayer’s Masque, Shoulderguard, and Warfists. Create cyphers for Scarlet’s lockboxes and unlock them for a chance at a miniature mechanized Moa, new exotic recipes, and more!
