Ember Bay is a zone in the Ring of Fire Islands. Primordus has made his way to the region, bringing with him a new swarm of Destroyers enhanced with both death and plant magic. In response, the asura have sent research and investigation teams via their gates at Rata Novus. Other denizens of the area include a marooned human carnival troupe, a scratch of pirate skritt, and the jade construct guardians of an ancient mursaat fortress.

The zone introduces a modified version of renown hearts, which reset daily and can be re-completed for further rewards. Ember Bay also features Thermal Tubes, which require the new Thermal Propulsion mastery and blasts users to a location a large distance away.[1]

Getting there[edit]

Like most of the Living World Season 3 zones, Ember Bay is not directly connected to neighboring areas. In order to reach it, players can use one of the following methods:

Notes[edit]

Ember Bay is treated by in-game mechanics as within the Heart of Maguuma region, allowing Daily Heart of Maguuma Gatherer achievements to be completed here.

Trivia[edit]

  • This area was first revealed in a sneak peek for Rising Flames, Episode 2 of Living World Season 3.[2]
  • In the "Behind the Scenes in Ember Bay" video, Josh Foreman mentioned that he was responsible for creating "this same level" 12 years ago in the original Guild Wars.
  • This is the only zone that does not have a meta event of any kind.
  • Although they are both located in the Fire Island region, Draconis Mons and Ember Bay have different character select backgrounds.
