While Celeste is away, Allona is joined by the beautious Prof. Enzo and they talk (Enzo talks anyway… Allona rambles) for an excessive amount of time about the second episode of the Living World, Entanglement. Celeste’s cat-herding and video-editing skills were sorely missed!

Report from Lion’s Arch



    • The lethal vines that plague Brisban Wildlands have begun to spread. And now there’s trouble in the town of Prosperity, where the asuran prodigy Taimi was left alone to research the threat. As the search begins for the mysterious ley line hub, look out for new threats and learn who’s been watching from atop the mesa above Prospect Valley.


    • After completing the Entanglement episode, players can showcase their tactical mastery as a hero of Tyria by completing challenging, episode-related achievements.


    • Crafting recipes for a new ambrite weapon set can now be found on the tier vendor.
    • Players can now raise Favor of the Zephyrites to tier five in Dry Top.
    • Be on the lookout for unidentified fossilized insects found in Buried Locked Chests, which are required in the crafting of these new weapons. Someone with a keen interest in entomology should be able to help players identify what is encased within.



New Items and Promotions

  • New Ley Line weapon skins have been added to the Black Lion Weapons Specialist for the introductory price of 1 Black Lion Claim Ticket per weapon. Tickets and ticket scraps can be found inside Black Lion Chests.
  • A new Mini Chickenado is now available in the Toys category of the Gem Store for 500 gems.
  • A new Permanent Ley Line Finisher is now available in the Upgrades category of the Gem Store for 800 gems.
  • Each race and gender now has three new hairstyles available exclusively from Self-Style Hair Kits and Total Makeover Kits in the Services category of the Gem Store.

Bug Fixes

  • Royal Terrace Passes will no longer drop from Black Lion Chests.


Then we talk for an hour about the story … THe amazing story!
  • This is what ANet said they wanted to do: Changes to the maps, story having game-wide effects.
  • Character development: Jory going off the deep end? Tension between Taimi and Rox?
  • New combat mechanics: Wolves that do more when flanking, Inquest dodging more, boss fight with the shield, NPC allies actually doing things in combat.
  • One negative: Discourages the use of alts. All the sand/lockpicks/geodes are stuck on one character.
  • How about that cutscene? The main image: dragons or gods?
    • season 1 short story – is relevant
