Return to the Living World Story: “Rising Flames”
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 6 July and 11 July to unlock this week’s spotlight episode for free! Check your in-game mailbox for a letter containing a story unlock token. You’ll find the unlocked episode under “Living World™ Season 3” 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 episode 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 episode itself. Here are some handy links to our official wiki to get you started.
Legate Minister Caudecus has escaped, the ancient mursaat Lazarus the Dire has risen, and the Elder Dragon Primordus stirs under Tyria’s feet. Travel to the deadly Ring of Fire Islands and learn what you can leverage against the growing threats.
