The Edge of the Mists (release)
Tyria is reeling in the shadow of the titanic horrors Scarlet Briar has recently unleashed. With its attention diverted, however, Scarlet has struck again—this time close to home. The dangerous mastermind has released a powerful enemy through a portal into an undiscovered, fragmented region of the Mists. Heroes of the Mist War are needed to explore and secure this new realm, but what will they find, and what does this latest attack portend?

The Edge of the Mists is the release launched on February 4, 2014. This release introduces the chapter two of the four living world season final chapters with the new World vs World map, Edge of the Mists, that is able to create overflow instances.

This release also features an overhaul of the WvW UI with the redesign of the queue to enter World versus World.

Bad news—Scarlet's Aetherblade thugs successfully freed Mai Trin from the Fort Marriner brig and escaped into the Mists via a new portal. I'd like you to confer with Sheriff Siriam in Fort Marriner about the breakout to see if there's anything we can use to track down Mai and figure out what she's doing for Scarlet. Good luck, and thanks.
