Just two weeks after the Dragon Bash celebration began, things turn bad in Lion’s Arch. I guess you can’t expect life to stay good for long in Tyria when bad people roam about. Unfortunately for Inspector Ellen Kiel, the culprits who committed the murder which is now being investigated have holed up in their hideout. The inspector is gathering teams to capture those responsible. Guild Wars claims that for this new incident, gamers better make sure their weapons and skills are up to the task because the “criminal promises to be a slippery eel!”
Several new events come with this update including:
- Aetherblade Retreat, a new story dungeon, where you will have to find the hidden entrance (it’s in Lion’s Arch near the Diverse Ledges) and then fight the sky pirates. This mini-event, where you have to battle the Aetherblade Captain and First Mate, runs through July 9.
- For those who like to earn skill points, a scavenger hunt has been added, permanently! Twelve plaques to honor the history of Cobiah Marriner’s founding of a city are all over the Sea of Sorrows. You must find the clues to collect them and when you do, you’ll get five skill points to spend.
- One thing that will be part of the download but unavailable until July 1 is the Aetherblade Jumping Puzzle. This hidden airship is in a holographic mountain and you must fight pirates, once you make it inside, to get a pair of hard-to-find diving goggles. Good luck on both finding the airship and making it to the goggles.
Guild Wars is not just about gaming these days though. Several novels have been released and the third one is now available. Sea of Sorrows, based off the adventures of Cobiah Marriner who founded the rebirth of Lion’s Arch, comes alive in print thanks to Ree Soesbee. Find it here.
Other exciting extras await gamers in the world of Tyria with Sky Pirates so check it out.
