Return to the Living World Story: “The Dragon’s Reach” Part 1 & Part 2

Catch up on the story of the dragon cycle and prepare for Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons. Log in to Guild Wars 2 between 1 June and 7 June to unlock these spotlight episodes for free! Check your in-game mailbox for a letter containing story unlock tokens. You’ll find the unlocked episodes under “Living World Season 2” in your story journal tab, which is located in the Hero panel. If you’ve already unlocked the episodes previously, you don’t need the tokens—you’re good to go!

New achievements for the episodes are available in the “Bonus Events” category of your achievements tab. You can complete these at any time to progress the Seasons of the Dragons meta-achievement and work toward earning legendary rewards.

In addition to the new meta-achievement, there are plenty of existing achievements to earn, rewards to collect, and secrets to find in the episodes themselves. Here are some handy links to our official wiki to get you started.
