Update - March 17, 2020[edit]

New Location: Eye of the North[edit]

Heed Aurene's call to the Eye of the North. As your allies gather to the north, you can visit new merchants, unlock services, and access any Strike Mission through the Eye's asura gate. Complete "Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire" to explore the secrets of the Scrying Pool and peer into past events! This content is available to any level-80 character with Path of Fire™.

New Release: Steel and Fire[edit]

Play with friends or meet new Tyrians and venture into the past to fight alongside Ryland Steelcatcher's elite warband as a fresh recruit in the "Forging Steel" group mission. Then play as Ryland himself as he follows Bangar into the Darkrime Delves. Things take an unexpected turn when he runs into none other than Almorra Soulkeeper.

Once you've completed the story, inspect a mysterious message in the Eye of the North to begin a journey to master the Scrying Pool and experience a selection of Season 1 stories once again:
