Living World: Point of No Return[edit]

Heroes stand at a precipice as Tyria hurtles toward a point of no return. The Pact Fleet is poised to launch its assault on Mordremoth. The search for Caithe—and Glint's egg—is narrowing, yet the future is uncertain. What answers will be revealed inside the cave?

Achievements[edit]

After completing Point of No Return, showcase your tactical mastery as a hero of Tyria by completing challenging, episode-related achievements.

  • Players can now complete their Carapace and Luminescent armor sets!
  • Complete the Bioluminescence collection to receive a new title, a choice of ascended armor pieces, and five transmutation charges.

  • Players who go up against the Mordrem Vinewrath will receive the Hero of the Wastes boon that grants 50% bonus magic find and extra bandit crests from various events throughout the map.
