  • With Rift Forger Mastery, using a Ley Rift, select Talk quest choice tango.png "Return to the Lion's Arch Aerodrome."

Interactive map[edit]



  • Even though its name is the "Lion's Arch Aerodrome" it is not actually inside Lion's Arch zone. It's another map which is why it costs money to use the waypoint there.


  • The aerodrome was created to house Pact airships and to prevent further attacks on Lion's Arch, like the one caused by Scarlet Briar.
  • The Lion's Arch Aerodrome name was chosen through a survey of players[1] on naming or renaming several locations in Lion's Arch. [2]
  • Various NPC mercenaries seen walking around the aerodrome are modeled after characters played by ArenaNet raid developers.
  • There is a single useable Krytan Common Chair in the aerodrome, which ANet jokingly refers to as "highly exclusive, challenging non-group chair content".[3]
