Beginning March 4, 2014
Scarlet’s armies have razed Lion’s Arch and occupy the smoldering husk of the proud port city – but she has not won yet! With the noxious miasma dissipating, heroes and friends of Lion’s Arch can mount an assault to re-take the city and fight Scarlet herself. Free the city and put a stop to Scarlet’s machinations!
Destroy Scarlet’s Champions
Lion’s Arch is crawling with Scarlet’s foot soldiers, and her champions are eager to defeat all would-be liberators. You’ll find yourself face-to-face with Scarlet’s most deadly champions: the Aetherblade Admiral, Toxic Spider Queen, Molten Shaman, and more. Worse things await you – beware the giant Assault Knights who guard the only way up to Scarlet’s airship!
Whatever Scarlet’s drilling for in Sanctum Harbor, it can’t bode well for Tyria. Fight your way through the Assault Knights and gain entrance to the Breachmaker. Once onboard the airship, break through Scarlet’s deadly defenses and try to find a way to put a stop to Scarlet and her schemes – for good!
Trophies from Scarlet
You can still return heirlooms and found belongings for rewards, but the Battle for Lion’s Arch holds greater treasures for you: kill enemies for a chance at one of two exotic rifle skins based on Scarlet’s own weapon or power cores to upgrade your Tempered Spinal Blades! Successfully defeating the defenders on Scarlet’s ship will reward you with a rare chance at rewards from past releases! Complete the meta achievement for a reward chest that includes luck, skill points, crafting materials, and more, and finish a special achievement for an exclusive title and universal helm!
A small release will be available on March 18, which will provide an epilogue to recent events. That release will show the aftermath of what players experience in the Battle for Lion’s Arch and will conclude the current story arc.
Scarlet’s Champions Mini 3-Pack
This pack has harmless, miniature versions of the Aetherblade Admiral, Molten Berserker, and Toxic Warlock in Scarlet’s army! Toss them into the Mystic Forge with a Mini Mai Trin to receive an armored Mini Scarlet Briar.
Tormented weapons, which can be bought with claim tickets found in Black Lion Chests, are the revival of a well-loved weapon set from more than 250 years ago!
Guild Shield Finisher
If you have a chance to finish off a deadly foe, what better way to step up to the occasion than with your guild’s emblem? Plant a sword and shield with your guild’s emblem on your vanquished enemies!
Scarlet’s Grasp and Spaulders
Scarlet’s latest additions to her armor are fierce, spikey, and have a fine mechamagical glow. Get some glove and pauldron skins of your very own to commemorate the fight against the villainous sylvari!
