Lion’s Arch is Scarlet Briar’s Target in Next Guild Wars 2 Update

Scarlet Briar is taking off the kid gloves. ArenaNet announced this morning that Briar’s siege on the very heart of Tyria, Lion’s Arch, begins February 18.

First Scarlet unleashed her massive evil robots in The Origins of Madness. ArenaNet took us to the Edge of the Mists last week. On February 18, we’ll have to Escape From Lion’s Arch. From ArenaNet:

The forces of the sylvari supervillain will soon descend upon Lion’s Arch. Aetherblade airships, dirigibles of death piloted by the dreaded pirates who now serve Scarlet, loom over the city like birds of prey. On the ground, the cruel serpentine krait and subterranean dredge hunt for prey and terrorize its citizens.

Looks like we’ll be getting a little Cataclysm in our Guild Wars.

That also makes it three out of four content updates designed to wrap up Guild Wars 2′s ongoing Scarlet Briar storyline. ArenaNet is pumping these updates out fast and furious, so it’s likely we’ll get our conclusion by the end of February/early March.

I am still not a fan of the character Scarlet and her crappy story, but an attack on Lions Arch seems fun. Her arc is finishing soon and season two is on its way, if the big reveal turns out to be an Elder Dragon then everything we suffered with the living story and Scarlet has been worth it.
