They also added a rather nifty Atlas that gives some additional information, pictures and sound-files including stuff from former Living Story parts.

Second time I get to battle for the darn place. It's getting tedious. Can't we just have a "Battle for Hoelbrak" or something? You know, Elder Dragons and shizzle!

Wauw, am I the only one hoping that we are not gonna rebuild or retake LA?

Also, meh... not a big fan of big fights and all that... Not gonna shoot it yet, maybe there is some backdoor instance where you can enter with your party alone and do actual story content, rather than zerging with players and NPCs again...

You realize the 9 items is just one page, right? There's like 60-ish items all in all.



By the way, it's getting really repetitive how first the bad guys invade, you push them back, then attack their hideout. It happened with Molten Alliance, Toxic Alliance, Jubilee was kinda like that, I skipped Aetherblades but I assume it went similarly, and now we'll most likely be entering the giant drill, since they're showing us the interior.

I cannot find the ninth item, either. I'm starting to think it's hidden and will be time-gated until three or two days before the event.

Just sayin'.

I also hope that this guy won't have a 0,1% chance to drop a component needed for the colored spinal blades. Don't want to be left to RNG after having spend tons of gold to level crafts and get the basic ascended version...

Everything besides the Battle for LA section is auto-unlocked.

Found the last one btw.

Won't it be the last LS update of this season? That kind of suggests that the final boss might be you-know-who.

I think Scarlet escapes and we fight whatever she is trying to dig up

I like:

- The voice actress for the trailer, very awesome stuff.
- The trailers themselves are presentable without revealing too much, I prefer my actual brain teasers about what's to come in game so this basic overview is perfect.

I really dislike:

-The extremely predictable story of retaking Lions Arch, as another poster said this has been done a few times already and is starting to get old. I really hope that there is some twist with the story that prevents us from taking it back and dooming LA forever to be uninhabitable, or at least for a year or so.
-More zergy grind content. Hopefully the majority of the new instance takes place in either a single player or 5 man instance. The finale to the LS deserves more than me having to turn my graphics down to medium to be able to see what the hell is even going on.

They announced 4 more updates, but this will be update number eight since. It could be that they meant 4 major and 4 minor, meaning the real conclusion is 3 weeks from now. In any case, we're approaching the end.

It has been confirmed Scarlet will not return after the end of this story arch.

Eight? I thought it was like this:
1. Origins of Madness
2. EotM
3. Escape from LA
4. Battle for LA

Because it was the probe that actually went off out of the dozens scattered around. Location doesn't correspond to anything obviously GW1 related either, a pity.

Because she's is trying to reach the lay-lines (we don't know why).
