As well as possessing the engineering secrets of many of the races of Tyria, and the flexibility offered by a union of orders with vastly differing methodologies, the Pact is in the posession of a fleet of specially-made airships. These are the Pact's crowning achievment—a combination of asura, charr, and human technology, they allow the dragon's to be fought in the air, as well as on land and sea.
The Pact was founded in order to retake Fort Stalwart from the Risen forces of Blightgast, the Plaguebringer after the Battle of Claw Island After proving successful, the Pact was solidified at Concordia in the Steamspur Mountains. The Pact is led by the firstborn sylvari Trahearne, who carries the rank of Marshal, with the Champion of Orr serving as his second-in-command (with the rank of Commander).
Pact forces quickly spread across the northern continent, fighting the Flame Legion in Fireheart Rise and aiding kodan refugees in Frostgorge Sound. But the main focus was Orr, where the Pact renovated a ruined fortress (code-named Fort Trinity) just off the coast of the Straits of Devastation. After coming into posession of a krait orb capable of protecting against the dragon's corruption, it launched a complex campaign across the ruined Kingdom, eventually reaching the Artesian Waters. The Pact's initial objective was to aid Marshal Trahearne in his Wyld Hunt task of cleansing the corruption at the heart of Orr, although afterward he was able to commit all remaining forces to Arah. There, Zhaitan was defeated by The Glory of Tyria, an airship designed by the Pact and crewed by a reunited Destiny's Edge, along with the Commander.
After the defeat of Zhaitan, the Pact regrouped at Fort Trinity and celebrated the completion of their impossible task. Now, they send scholars under the guidance of Magister Stonehealer to explore the city of the human gods and uncover its secrets, and prepare to turn their attention to the next Elder Dragon.
