Peril grows alongside the Elder Dragon's Reach in today's patch for Guild Wars 2.
The Dragon's Reach: Part 1 launches today for Guild Wars 2 as the latest episode in Season 2 of the Living World. Mordremoth's minion have stretched even farther as all of Tyria must come to understand this dire, new threat. In this patch, players will need to work with allies old and new to unite the world's races against it.
The Call Goes Out for the races to unite, but it seems each race already has its own concerns including encroaching ghosts and dragon minions as well as mysterious magical anomalies. It will take "determination and some daring acts" to persuade the leaders of Tyria to unite once more.
Mordermoth's corruption continues to spread as its presence is felt even in the far reaches of Ascalon. The Charr of Iron Marches have witnessed another major outbreak of Mordremoth's corruption and need your aid! Major corruptions are not the only concern as more waypoints are getting entangled in vines. Will Taimi be able to set them straight?
Season 2's focus on permanent content means that all of the rewards that have been released over the last two patches are still obtainable, but that doesn't mean there won't be more to obtain! Players will be able to start construction of a new back item that will grow and change as you adventure during these next two episodes. The Buried Locked Chests in Dry Top have also been updated once again to include one of three new kites: the Ventari Follower, Prosperity Mine and Crystal Shard. If the looks of these kites were not enough, these kite toys will also grant increased movement speed while players are carrying them!
Don't forget that you can log in within the first two weeks of each patch to unlock that episode's repeatable story for free!
