Claw Island

Claw Island is a stony fortress near the mouth of Sanctum Harbor. When Lion's Arch was founded, a small defensive fortification was built there, designed to keep enemies from sailing close enough to bombard the city's docks. It was the crowning jewel of the protection Sykox Steamshroud had planned for Lion's Arch, and the charr was understandably proud of it. The fortress took years to complete, but when it was done, it guarded the mouth of the harbour, providing gunnery posts and defences as well as early warning when the Dead Ships came in force as they'd done at Port Stalwart.

In 1325 AE, the Risen finally made their move. Even though Claw Island had been built to withstand a naval attack, nothing could prepare it for one led by Blightghast the Plaguebringer, a dragon champion. The island was overrun, and Lion's Arch was at its most vulnerable ever until the orders of Tyria—the forces that would become the Pact—counterattacked and retook the island. Two years later, Scarlet Briar bypassed Claw Island's defences by launching a land and air assault.

Locations[edit]
