Plot

Primary article: End of Dragons story

Over two centuries ago, the Empire of the Dragon severed all bonds with central Tyria and Elona. Cantha has its own history of turmoil and triumph, reflected in ancient landmarks, enduring artistry, and modern life. The Jade Wind petrified everything it touched, devastating the southeastern coastal regions. A stone sea holds no food—but it’s absorbed centuries of magic. Canthan innovators have long sought practical applications for the material now known as “dragonjade”, achieving solutions undreamed of elsewhere in the world. New innovations are on the horizon…

The dragon cycle that has sustained and blighted Tyria for ages is collapsing. Mortal hearts and choices will define this moment in history—and echo in the future forever.

Locations

Elite specializations

Canthan scholars, adventurers, and soldiers have developed unique disciplines for each of the nine professions. Some traditions have been refined over the centuries, while others have adapted to recent technology and changes in the world. Combat specialists from Cantha and abroad will find great opportunities to exchange stories and share knowledge.

    As of now, from what I've been told by those who make these decisions, it's not the end of the game, either. — Bobby Stein

    Colin Johanson: As a final note for me, though this expansion is named End of Dragons, I want to be abundantly clear this is not the end of Guild Wars 2. We view End of Dragons as the next big stepping stone for this franchise, and we think the best is yet to come. There is plenty more coming after End of Dragons in Guild Wars 2. We're not going to tell you about any of it today, but we're very excited for you all to get to check it out someday.
