Travel routes in Ember Bay with Thermal Tubes, Updrafts and Leylines

Ember Bay is a zone that is lore-wise located within the Ring of Fire Islands but mechanically found in the Heart of Maguuma. 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, one 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]

  • 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.
