Living World Season 1[edit]

Something is stirring in the Sea of Sorrows. Ship wreckage is washing up on shore, whales are beaching themselves, local quaggans are leaving their undersea homes, and strange new creatures are being spotted along the Tyrian coast.

Head Researcher Levvi has been pleading with Captain Magnus, leader of the Lionguard, to heed her warnings of imminent danger to the city of Lion's Arch and other coastal settlements. Magnus remains unconvinced, though the disruption of maritime trade has the Ship's Council concerned.
