Scarlet's airship drills deep into the earth beneach Lion's Arch as the city burns.

The most diverse and cosmopolitan city in Tyria, Lion's Arch was a melting pot where all the races gathered and traded. Lion's Arch owed no allegiance to any race or nation, but stood on its own – and did so by virtue of its active navy, its financial strength, and the intelligence and cunning of its leaders.

Currently under occupation by the forces of the Molten Alliance, Aetherblades, and Toxic Alliance, this battleground version of the familiar hub city replaces Lion's Arch for the duration of the Battle for Lion's Arch release.

Captain Magnus the Bloody-Handed, Captain's Council, Lion's Arch

We are taking back Lion's Arch!

The Lionguard have regrouped, and we are ready. With our allies from the Vigil, Durmand Priory, and the Order of Whispers, we will storm Lion's Arch, establish rally positions, cut down Scarlet's forces, and take the fight to Scarlet herself.

After a year of suffering, invasion, and death at her hands, we have Scarlet right where we want her. Come to Lion's Arch with your rage and your best weapons. Show no mercy to Scarlet and her damned followers. Today begins a battle that will be sung about for years to come. Fight alongside me as we take back our city and wipe Scarlet off the face of Tyria forever.

To battle!

—Captain Magnus the Bloody-Handed

Speaking with Captain Ellen Kiel at Fort Marriner
When we clear the path, go make Scarlet suffer for what she did to Lion's Arch. Ashford's murder, the destruction, everything.
Talk more option tango.png You're not coming with?
I won't lie; I'd love to chop Scarlet's crazy head off of her shoulders, but the city isn't secure. I'll stay behind, make sure nothing follows behind you.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks, Captain. Scarlet's not getting away this time.
Talk end option tango.png Will do.

Ambient dialogue[edit]

(At Postern Ward)
Kasmeer Meade: The legacy of a lunatic.
Marjory Delaqua: Calling her crazy diffuses the blame. This isn't madness; this is evil. Straight black. Blacker than a moonless night.
Kasmeer Meade: Get those survivors clear! This are isn't safe. Move them to the order camps outside the gate!
Kasmeer Meade: Go on. Go with...the Lionguard. Why are you staring at me, Jory?
Marjory Delaqua: I'm just admiring you.
Kasmeer Meade: Is this really the time?
Marjory Delaqua: Not like that. I'm admiring how strong you've become since you showed up, looking for work. You're amazing.
Kasmeer Meade: You're a good influence.
Marjory Delaqua: (chuckle) You aren't nearly as commanding when you blush.
Kasmeer Meade: After this is over, I think we should take a vacation. Somewhere warm, where nothing wants to kill us.
Marjory Delaqua: I'd say we've earned it. Where do you want to go? The Grove? Rata Sum? Back to Southsun?
Kasmeer Meade: Not Southsun! I said somewhere things don't want to kill us. I still have nightmares about karka.

Heal-o-Tron: Other—operatives—have—advanced—to—negate—Scarlet. She—will—be—killed.
Captain Ellen Kiel: Not the point.
Heal-o-Tron: You—want—to—delete—her. This—unit—wants—to—see—Scarlet—deleted.
Captain Ellen Kiel: But you stayed help me?
Heal-o-Tron Others—will—delete—Scarlet. You—required—aid. This—unit—acted—accordingly.
