Scarlet's Minions Invade!
- 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.
