The Battle of Lion's Arch begins in Guild Wars 2
This has been the moment that the team at Guild Wars 2 have been talking about for quite some time. The Battle for Lion's Arch begins today and is planned to be the toughest battle that the inhabitants of Tyria have ever come to experience.
Since the announcement of the unique, Living World model, back in September, ArenaNet have been ramping up the challenge factor in the mmorpg and Guild Wars 2: The Battle for Lion's Arch is what it has all been boiling down to. Scarlet's Army have overrun Lion's Arch and are gathering momentum, and the Heroes of Tyria have to strike now, while there's still a chance that she can be suppressed.
Her Champions are at large in Lion's Arch too. Not only will you face off against the likes of Aetherblade Admiral, Toxic Spider Queen and Molten Shaman, Scarlet's toughest guards, the Assault Knights, await you, should you make it to Scarlet's Airship.
Heaps of goodies are up for grabs during the event, from Rifle Skins and Power Cores to Rewards and Achievements. Not only that, if you missed out on some of the rewards from the mmo's past events, there's a chance, on-board Scarlet's Airship, that they may drop once more!
The battle is scheduled to run between now and March 18th, when a mini update will provide an epilogue, which is ominously being referred to as "The Aftermath".
