The memorial dedicated to the heroes of Lion's Arch

The Grand Piazza is located at the center of Lion's Arch. This page mainly documents Eastern Ward as it was during Battle for Lion's Arch: Aftermath until Lion's Arch rebuilding.

Grand Piazza is a multi-plaza area which includes the former Gate Hub Plaza, now turned into a memorial. It connects Trader's Forum, Western Ward, Eastern Ward, and Fort Marriner.

Ambient dialogue[edit]

During The Lost Shores[edit]

During The Lost Shores Prelude
Head Researcher Levvi: I've shown you the evidence. My conclusions are inescapable. Why won't you listen to me?
Magnus the Bloody-Handed: I have listened. In fact, I'm sick of listening to you. The council has already ruled on this.
Magnus the Bloody-Handed: We're not shutting down the world's busiest port because a machine spat out some numbers that made your ears twitch.
Magnus the Bloody-Handed: When Lion's Arch is in real danger, the Lionguard will respond. Until then, sling your hook and shove off!
Levvi walks back to her krewe's station.
Head Researcher Levvi: Big surprise: Magnus still won't act. He and his precious council only care about commerce.
Head Researcher Levvi: He won't listen until those readings we've been taking manifest as something he can hit.
Researcher Farrowyn: By then it may be too late. Thorns! What do we do?
Head Researcher Levvi: We keep researching. Something's coming, something big, and someone has to prepare for it.

During Sky Pirates of Tyria[edit]

Marren: Merrik, what should we do?
Roardina: We've heard people talking. They think we had something to do with the attack.
Merrik: I've been thinking about what happened. It couldn't have been an accident.
Merrik: Tell me, right now. Did any of you have anything to do with it?
Broll: Of course not. Did you?
Merrik: Never. I was born here, and I'll die here. I hate Dragon Bash, but I love my city.
Merrik: We have a new charge. Tell everyone to keep their eyes open. We won't let this criminal get away with it.

After Battle for Lion's Arch: Aftermath[edit]

Merchant (1): (sigh) Gnashblade is going to wipe us all out.
Merchant (2): Yeah, I knew he had it made when Kiel appointed him the Lionguard quartermaster during the crisis.
Merchant (1): They hate each other! Why would she... Oh, forget it.

During Lion's Arch Reconstruction[edit]

Between Mystic Forge and Grand Piazza during reconstruction
Consortium Surveyor: (chuckle) Jellyfish and manta rays...
Construction Engineer: In all my years building things, I've never once shipped a structure in from somewhere else. Smart idea.
Project Manager: I think that's the first time I've ever heard you say something positive.
Construction Engineer: It's hard to be pessimistic about something like this. Lion's Arch will be a completely different place when we're done.
