Escape from Lion's Arch
Scarlet is on the attack! After months of preparation, the arch-villain descends on Lion’s Arch with all of her deadly forces. Now is the time to rally together and defend the besieged city.
— Official website
Escape from Lion's Arch was released on February 18, 2014. Scarlet Briar has organized an assault on Lion's Arch, coordinating troops from the Molten, Aetherblades, and Toxic Alliances, as well as from her twisted clockwork monstrocities. Players will fight back alongside Braham, Rox, Marjory Delaqua, Kasmeer Meade, and Taimi. The Captain's Council, including Captain Ellen Kiel, and the Orders of Tyria will also play a role.
During this chapter of the Living World, Vigil Keep will serve as the hub for some of the game content originally available in Lion's Arch, including the asura gate hub to other cities, Fractals of the Mists, and relevant personal storyline instances. The city will continue to be available for map completion, but players should expect it to be more difficult to navigate during this time.

Captain's Council, Lion's Arch
Emergency — Lion's Arch Is Being Invaded
To all Tyrians,
This is a general emergency warning. A few hours ago, a massive flying platform has entered Sanctum Harbor, bringing destruction and spreading a lethal miasma over the city. Furthermore, Aetherblade airships, Molten portals, and Toxic forces are overwhelming the Lionguard response.
Some of the citizenry is still trapped inside the city limits. We are calling on available heroes to assist in the evacuation efforts.Lion's Arch needs you. If you can, please report to the forward camps in Gendarran Fields, Bloodtide Coast, and Lornar's Pass at once.
