Living World[edit]

New Release: Champions Chapter 1—Truce[edit]

With Jormag fully awakened, Tyria slips ever closer toward calamity. But another menace lurks below the surface, and it will be up to the commander to hold the line as new threats erupt. Gather your allies and ready your weapons in the first chapter of the climactic finale of The Icebrood Saga.

  • Rallying to the side of their champion, the Order of the Crystal Bloom are marshaling in the Eye of the North. Complete daily achievements on their behalf to aid their efforts and earn rewards. As the world completes tiers of progress, everyone who helps will earn extra rewards from the Crystal Bloom's quartermaster!

Voice-Over Updates: No Quarter and Jormag Rising[edit]

  • Episodes 3 and 4 of The Icebrood Saga, "No Quarter" and "Jormag Rising," have been updated to include voice-over. Two new achievements have been added for completing each episode's story chapters with voice-over added.
  • An option has been added to the Scrying Pool at the Eye of the North that allows players to replay specific moments from the Confer with Bangar achievement so that they can experience those exchanges again with voice-over.

World Polish[edit]

  • Added an airdrop location over the Iron Lookout in the northern half of Drizzlewood Coast.
  • One chest from each cache keeper has been moved to Wolf's Crossing. These chests will appear upon successful completion of the Battle Cry meta-event, and they still require a cache key to open.

  • Increased the flow rate for the Blood of Jormag in the Assault on the Frost Citadel meta-event.
