The Queen's Speech release page is vandalized by unknown persons. Some players and fan sites receive a poem and a pocket watch in the mail.[1]
Tick tock goes the clock
It's almost time for time to stop
Something you all must understand
Your world is built on fog and sand
You're out of time, your jig is done
It's time for Scarlet to have her fun
She has some hard lessons to teach
To the people of Divinity's Reach
So mark the date in permanent ink
The hour is later than you think
On the twentieth day she'll start her games
And warm her hands over Kryta's flames!

Scarlet's Minions Invade![edit]

Primary article: Scarlet's Minions Invade!

Scarlet has unleashed clockwork horrors upon Tyria! All zones not suited for character levels below 25 (except Orr and Southsun Cove) can have an invasion event that spawns waves of Twisted Watchworks for 45 minutes. Alongside the new minions, enemies from previous Living World releases can also spawn, such as the Molten Alliance and Aetherblades pirates. Players will need to destroy the clockwork creatures to weaken the portals. Successfully completing all three waves will cause Scarlet Briar to appear and fight.

Only one zone will be attacked at any time. The current invasion location will be shown on the Living World UI. Any overflows created within the 10 minutes after the invasion begins will also host an invasion. All overflows created after 10 minutes will be normal zones.

Gem Store[edit]



  • Before its launch, Clockwork Chaos was known as "The Queen's Speech".
