Update - May 14, 2019[edit]

Living World[edit]

War Eternal[edit]

New Legendary Weapon: Exordium[edit]

Tyria is on the brink of a new era of magic and technology. Exordium physically embodies this renaissance—a symbol of hope, unity, and a bold way forward. The blade's form expresses itself in unique ways based on the user's specific need, taking on different shapes when thrown, thrust, or slammed into a target.

New Mount: The Skyscale[edit]

The Mists are home to many strange and glorious creatures, including Gorrik's latest field of study: the skyscale. Closely related to dragons, skyscales subsist on magical energy; earn their trust as you once earned Aurene's, and you'll be able to ascend into the sky and hover high above Tyria! The skyscale possesses the unique ability to cling to walls and other vertical surfaces, allowing its rider to steadily gain elevation in strategically measured increments. After completing "War Eternal,"[sic] meet with Gorrik at the skyscale eyrie to learn how you can acquire this newest addition to the mount roster.
