11/07/2022 at 11:30 am by Matthias Brückle – It only took eight years: The season 1 finale of Living World in Guild Wars 2 is playable again on November 8, 2022 after years of content being removed . The comeback even brings a new strike with reworked Watchknight bosses!
Tomorrow, November 8, 2022, the return of Living World Season 1 in Guild Wars 2 concludes with the bombastic finale players last saw in March 2014. It’s all or nothing, as Scarlet Briar destroys old (or then-normal) Lion’s Arch with her Aetherblade Pirate, Toxic Alliance, and Fiery Alliance armies. We face her, protect the people of Lion’s Arch and take back the city!

New Public Instance: Stop Lion’s Arch Invasion!
On the official website for Guild Wars 2 (buy now €49.95), the developers emphasize that there will be a group instance where you fight your way through the burning Löwenstein. There will be a public variant for up to 50 players or for private squads – like the Dragon Storm and Twisted Marionette instances. But that’s not all.

New Assault Mission: Old Lion Court
For the first time since the release of End of Dragons in early 2022, there is a new strike in Guild Wars 2. This pits you against the “Watchknight Triumvirate” in Lion’s Arch. These bosses from the original 2014 release got a cool new design and will also get a post-release challenge mode that won’t be available on November 8th, 2022.

Fight against Watchknight should be much more exciting
When Battle for Lion’s Arch was first released in 2014, the three Watchknights were the key to getting to Scarlet. Defeating the three Wardens gave you a buff that allowed you to travel to the Fracturebringer Drill Platform to then face off against the Living World Season 1 antagonist. At that time, the three Storm Knights still had identical attacks and weapons – but the new screenshot with staff, hammer and great sword and the role as strike bosses already promise that we will be dealing with more interesting bosses.
