Jump to: navigation, search

Cities are special zones characterized by a total lack of hostile NPCs, Renown Hearts, hero challenges and dynamic level adjustment. Fast traveling to the zone's waypoints is free while in the city. Special dynamic events can still occur in cities, such as during Wintersday or Halloween.

List of cities[edit]

Capital cities[edit]

Each of the playable races has a capital city, which is the first city that characters of each respective race will visit during their personal story. Large portion of every character's story plays in their capital city, often within their own home instance.

Lion's Arch[edit]

In addition to the capital cities of the playable races, there is also Lion's Arch, the central trade and cultural hub of Tyria. Lion's Arch contains unique features that are not found in other cities.

Establishments[edit]

There are several large establishments located in zones throughout Tyria.

Lobby[edit]

Lobbies are another special subtype of zones. They work similarly to cities, but they serve as the staging points for specific game modes or activities.
