Cities are special explorable zones characterised by a total lack of hostile NPCs, Renown Hearts, skill 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 story. Large portion of every character's personal storyline 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. Each of the other cities has an asura gate leading there, and there are five additional asura gates in Fort Marriner which lead to the different PvP areas.

Lion's Arch is under reconstruction from Scarlet Briar's Living World event when Lion's Arch was under attack.
