The Eastern Ward is a section of Lion's Arch. It contains Coriolis Plaza, the newly built asura gate hub to the five racial capitals, as well as The Vaults, the new Black Lion Trading Company Headquarters. The ward is accessed by going east from the Grand Piazza or across the bridge over the Inner Harbor from the Postern Ward.

  1. ^ Game updates/2023-11-28
    Updated the portals in Skywatch Archipelago and Lion's Arch that transport players to the Wizard's Tower to appear for all characters on an account once the owner has completed the Chapter 6: Tower of Secrets story achievement.
    Previously, this required each character to complete Chapter 6: Tower of Secrets of the Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure storyline.
    This change means that once any character has finished Chapter 6, all characters on that account can travel to the Wizard's Tower via either Skywatch Archipelago or Lion's Arch.
