克拉卡托已经被击败了,欧茹恩也消失了。但是在你处理这些巨龙的问题之前,安努需要你的帮助。

— 游戏内描述

巴萨泽战败后不久,也就是庆祝宴会结束后不久,指挥官就在离安努不远的一个小型石牦牛农场跟泰蜜和里特洛克见面。在“借用”一些约科的苏醒者军队与巴萨泽作战后,指挥官试图远离伊洛纳城市。
玛乔丽和卡司蜜儿去监视克拉卡托的行动,但是自从他与堕落的神明战斗之后,他就一直坐在山崖上。但是很快谈话被打断了,因为一场烙印风暴袭击了安努,虽然克拉卡托已经不在了。里特洛克和指挥官迅速前往安努帮助尽可能多的市民,击杀烙印生物。但他们还是来迟了一步,很多市民未能得救,其中包括代理人Qais。
烙印风暴结束以后,成长起来的欧茹恩回来了,同时给指挥官和他的盟友们带来了一个幻象:一座遥远的城市和大量的苏醒者军队。探员奇托指出这个城市看起来好像是位于伊斯坦的第一城市·法兰努尔。指挥官前往码头,登上一艘船驶向南部岛屿。
到达伊斯坦后,指挥官前往占星台寻找烈阳之矛的盟友。占星台是知识的圣殿,收藏着早于约科和他的修正主义历史之前的书籍,但它经常受到苏醒者部队的攻击,意图破坏他们的研究,把文献扔到草坪上。在证明了他们不是约科的朋友之后,指挥官被允许进入占星台下面的秘密基地,这个基地只能通过一本激活向下传送门的书才能进入。不幸的是,“烈阳之矛”无法帮助他们,因为他们的领袖扎伊姆元帅正试图将“黎明矿坑”从苏醒者的控制中解放出来。
在黎明矿坑,两名祭司通知指挥官,扎伊姆已被海盗俘虏。然而,海盗队的前队长之一,狡猾的玛格丽特,丢失了一枚旧硬币。狡猾的赛依达说,把它还给海盗的领袖,可能会赢得她的好感。这枚硬币在一个特殊的反叛苏醒者士兵手中,位于城南的一个山洞内,这名士兵经常对村庄中的小孩表现的非常友好。
指挥官击败了烈阳之矛苏醒者首领,带着硬币前往海盗营地。在那里,指挥官又一次遇到了那个在安努的时候碰到,并警告指挥官在伊斯坦有对他的悬赏的人。他与船员谈妥条件,以便安排与船长的会面。赛依达很想把指挥官交出去换去悬赏,但是她在看到硬币后重新做了考量。不幸的是,赛依达已经在不到1个小时前把扎伊姆交出去换去悬赏。然而,她有了一个计划,可以把指挥官假装俘虏换去悬赏,伺机救出扎伊姆。但是在这之前,她需要准备一个特殊的烈酒,需要在当地找到一些特殊的原料。探员齐托现身,答应协助完成计划。指挥官同意了计划,他说预付的赏金是首付,只有在指挥官成功逃脱后才会把硬币交给她。
在新月大教堂内,探员齐托和他的队员不见 踪影,而赛依达的人在提酒桶时遇到了麻烦,所以他们在没有暗影教团的情况下实施了这个计划。就在指挥官要投降的时候,泰蜜通过通讯器呼叫指挥官。守卫把指挥官打晕,把他们关在紧挨着扎伊姆元帅的牢房里。守卫出去后,指挥官冲出牢房,释放了扎伊姆。他们两个从所有苏醒者警卫身边溜过,来到一个隐蔽的书架前。典狱长拿走了通讯器,泰蜜一直在持续呼叫,显然是害怕发生什么不好的事。在赛依达和她的人的帮助下,典狱长被击败了。指挥官得知泰蜜已经被约科抓走,约科设法从地下世界逃脱,并利用她进行报复。
烈阳之矛的新兵帮助指挥官和扎伊姆逃离营地,前往第一之城,里特洛克和卡纳克随后加入。这个古老的城市有很多危险,从野生动物到苏醒者士兵,甚至还要通过远古陷阱的考验。其中一些陷阱在坐骑的帮助下被克服了,甚至被烙印生物也会与苏醒者战斗中帮助团队到达目的地。过了一段时间,他们发现了几具阿苏拉的尸体,都穿着审讯团服装。似乎他们在法兰努尔的某个地方建了一个实验室,尽管他们相信所有的阿苏拉多年前就已经被被赶走了。在卡纳克设置炸弹准备通过骨墙的时候,审讯团尸体突然复生,变成苏醒者,随后出现了一个巨大的苏醒者巨犬。经过长时间的战斗,卡纳克的炸药爆炸了,但引发了崩塌。幸运的是,伯拉罕保护了指挥官和他的朋友们。他和罗克丝一起调查了很多攻击泰瑞亚的不死生物,然后从一起穿越阿苏拉星门来到了这里。
在与老朋友重聚后,巨龙守望和盟友们一起破坏了审讯团大门,继续穿越古城,直到他们地毯一个巨大的被阿苏拉城墙包围的枢纽。一段安全录音证实了泰蜜和约科都在那里,泰蜜不情愿地帮助打开了大门,因为约科威胁要把她变成苏醒者。然而,当大门一打开,一大波苏醒者攻击了队伍。只有指挥官和伯拉罕继续走到了中央平台,泰蜜被锁在她的魔像里,而苏醒者审讯团则宣布向指挥官和他的盟友们开战。小邋遢2.0开始攻击自己,因为它带走了驾驶舱里的所有空气。指挥官和伯拉罕0设法拯救了泰蜜,同时摧毁了房间里所有的传送门。。然而,审讯团的未知研究和乔科的威胁像阴影一样笼罩着他们。

Current Events.png 周边故事: 威胁觉醒

With the asura gates at Fahranur activated, Palawa Joko began to send his armies to invade Central Tyria. The Fahranur lab's quick destruction should have ended the threat, however portals continued to open outside the largest six cities in the region, and Awakened flooded through. Defended by local forces, and assisted by the Commander and adventurers, the invasion forces were pushed back. Famous individuals were present defending their homes, including Sigfast and Skarti Knutsson, Exemplar Kerida, Captain Magnus the Bloody-Handed, the Gear warband, Ridhais, and Peacemaker Ninn.

Upon the first invasions thwarted, Peacemaker Ninn requested the aid of the Pact Commander in creating a device to track the invasions. Utilizing a resonance tuner, an etheric tank, and a gate alchemeter, Ninn and the Commander created a Phasic Distortion Reader capable of predicting portal locations. The Commander kept the prototype, while Ninn sent the blueprints to the Peacemakers for mass production.

A Bug in the System.png 第二幕: 系统故障[3]

A Bug in the System Wallpaper.jpg

A scientist in the mysterious Inquest facility known as Rata Primus appears to hold the key to stopping Palawa Joko's vengeful invasion of Tyria, but infiltrating the enemy's stronghold will prove challenging.

— In game description

Kito sent a letter to the Commander with news on a possible lead. Taimi confirms the lead, and found a scientist in the Inquest that might be able to figure out just what Joko is after. The Commander headed off to Lifeblood Waterhole to meet Kito, with Rox and Braham arriving shortly thereafter. There was apparently a hidden Inquest base behind a waterfall, and the Commander would intercept a Specimen Collector Golem in order to sneak in and find the scientist, Blish, who Taimi knew back in college. Rox and Braham posed as specimen, and thus had to go through a delousing and cleanliness process while the Commander sneaked past Inquest drones to avoid alerting the Inquest sentries. At the end of the lab, a large directory tied to an asura gate revealed that Blish was in Rata Primus. A portal couldn't be opened directly into Rata Primus, but a lab nearby.

Once in this new lab, The Commander, Rox and Braham threw off all pretense of stealth and began systematically searching the lab for signs of the brother. Gorrik, Blish's younger brother, had sent out a distress message that Awakened were attacking Rata Primus. Along the way, the group met a charr who was being experimented on by the Inquest. We later learn her name is Boticca, and she is from a nearby village. Her clan call themselves the Olmakhan, a group who split off from the charr shortly after Kalla led the rebellion against the Flame Legion. The Olmakhan live very differently from the charr of the Black Citadel, preferring to be peaceful, raising their children in families instead of fahrars, and specializing in nature magic and sand effigies. Not long after Boticca returned to the village, the Inquest led an assault. The Commander and Braham focused on protecting a group of cubs who were far from the main village before joining the fight in the village elders' chamber. A massive golem killed Elder Narn.

Assessing the situation on the Sandswept Isles, the Commander went to scout around Rata Primus while Braham and Rox helped to guard the village. A brief meeting with Aurene offered an aerial view around the massive cube, and even a communication dish. A panel in one of the side labs had a recording of Gorrik's emergency message out about the Awakened and how they are both trapped inside. The Commander asked Taimi to call Sayida to bring her airship in to assault the cube; Taimi would see if she could tag along on the ride. Some of the surrounding labs, however, were creating a protective shield, preventing Sayida from getting close. After sabotaging three labs, everything was ready to enter Rata Primus.

Rox and the Olmakhan soldiers led a distracting ground assault on Rata Primus while the Commander and Braham performed a strike assault from Sayida's airship. Boticca and four other stormcallers aided by conjuring a storm that took out the defensive turrets. Inside, the lab was in chaos. Only the golems remained, and they were behaving erratically. After exploring three labs and obtaining security codes, the Commander learned that Gorrik had most likely sabotaged an asura gate to hinder Joko's progress, and barricaded himself in his lab with Blish. Down below, Awakened were already swarming the facility, with some of the Inquest Awakened themselves. Reaching Gorrik's lab, we find him safe but his brother to, although he was a golem now. The Commander and Braham decide to keep this secret from Taimi for now, feeling it best for her to learn the truth in person. The reunion is short-lived, though, as Joko managed to break into a highly secure lab and steal all the research the Inquest had been doing on the Scarab Plague (which is really more of a pestilence...). The Commander managed to catch up to Joko in the gate hub. Joko has apparently changed his ways, and rather than taunting and torturing the Commander with this failure, decided to have Commander Lonai kill off the nuisances before they had a chance to interfere more. During the fight, the asura gate activates and sucks Lonai, Braham and the Commander through. The fighting continues as they reach Divinity's Reach outside the circus tent, Mount Maelstrom while a lava monster attacks, and Frostgorge Sound while the Claw of Jormag rages on. Just before Lonai can be killed, the portal sucks up the three one last time to send them to a desolate rock amid a starry sky, seemingly far from Tyria. There, Lonai is killed for good in a place where Joko cannot raise her again, and the two ponder life on this strange, barren rock. Luckily, Blish reestablishes contact and is able to pull the two back to the Sandswept Isles.

Current Events.png 周边故事:危险再临

With the destruction of Rata Primus' gate network, the Awakened invasions had slowed to a crawl. Surprisingly, however, they did not stop. Peacemaker Ninn requested further assistance from the Pact Commander in investigating the matter, suspecting that the destruction of the gate network has caused a malfunction, and suggested looking for Awakened in new locations. The Commander eventually found these Awakened on the isles of Southsun Cove. Upon investigating rumors and reports of locals in the area, the Commander eventually found device wreckage from Rata Primus and brought it to Ninn. After studying the debris for a day, Ninn compiled and filed a report on his findings.

Based on his research, Ninn concluded that there were a number of Awakened in transit when the gate network's entry point was destroyed. With no entry point or stable exit point, everything in transit was obliterated, however, a phenomena caused their remnants to be trapped within an interstitial state. This, in turn, is creating fractal-like copies of the Awakened that were in transit and killed, and will continue to repeatedly appear over the course of a few years until the anomaly fades.

Meanwhile, a travelling krewe of holo-news journalists have appeared in Southsun Cove, covering the Awakened invasions as well as asking a survey about people's favorite pet.

Long Live the Lich.png 第三幕: 巫妖万岁[4]

Long Live the Lich Wallpaper.jpg

As the Scarab Plague threatens the Free City of Amnoon, Joko's plans are revealed in all their horrific splendor. Put an end to them.

— In game description

Gorrik had done some experiments and learned that the Scarab Plague only affects humans. However, after he talks about his experiments in public, and injects himself with the pestilence to prove it, he got all his possessions confiscated and himself locked in quarantine. The Commander, at Taimi's urging, shows up to his trial and pleads on his behalf, getting him released. The Commander, Taimi and Gorrik head to the docks to retrieve all of Gorrik's gear, including Blish who had been deactivated. Near the gear, Lord Faren greets the Commander, saying how Logan, as the new Marshall of the Pact, is sending a boat full of supplies to Amnoon to help relief efforts in the city. However, Joko had already released the Plague on the boat. The Commander dispatches the Plague and its Awakened victims, only for Joko to mockingly invite the Commander to come to Gandara, the Moon Fortress for "part 2" of his production.

Taimi recommends going to the Tomb of the Primeval Kings to get advice from the old Kings, since they had lived through the Scarab Plague themselves. After learning that Joko finally had the genuine article in his possession and was ready to release it on the world, Nahlah and Dahlah agree to lend their ghost army to fighting against the tyrant. They also reveal that they can smell the death on the Commander, meaning that the Scarabs will not find a suitable host in one who was once dead. Taimi and Blish prepare a small portal outside the Primeval Tomb, using the tech taken from Rata Primus, but Blish's golem arm accidentally falls through the portal.

On the other side of the portal, the Commander used Blish's severed arm to cloak and sneakily clear out all the Awakened in the nearby town to turn it into a new base in Kourna. Scouting out further, the main threats seem to be from the south and west, so Canach joins the Commander and brings with him both portable explosives and seeds that will quickly grow to make a giant vine wall. Once the base is secured, the army is sent through the rift, one group at a time. The entire army consists of Primeval ghosts, Olmakhan charr, Amnoon volunteers, Sunspear warriors and sylvari Thorn-Wall Shapers, along with Blish, Gorrik, Taimi, Braham and the Commander.

There are various tasks in Kourna that need to be completed before the Commander can assault the Moon Fortress. The insect Gorrik had been growing under his skin grew into a fairly large roller beetle that could be used as a new type of mount. A village north of the base had scarab eggs growing over the crops, and needed to be burned to prevent it from spreading further; it seems a loyalist in the village was following Joko's orders to spread the Scarab Plague. A heket tribe - Elonian hylek - to the east of the camp offer to help if their hunters could be returned, so that they can continue to feed themselves. Far to the south, a corsair ship crashed on the shore, but they are still able to send supplies to the main camp via catapults, backed up by non-humans and ghosts. After all that, Lord Faren got some crucial information to the front lines, risking being infected and getting seriously injured in the process.

Canach went on ahead to blow up the guard towers by Gendara's main entrance, while the Commander and the troops push across the bridge. Canach places an explosive on the door while the rest of the troops fight Awakened assaulting them from behind. When the door is finally blown open, third-generation troops start filing out from the breech. The door breech is barred briefly while the ghosts get ready to fight against the horde. Meanwhile, Braham leaps down and finds another way into the fortress: an entryway through the sewers. Progressing on this route, there are various traps lining the path. Braham finds a corpse that looks exactly like the Commander, then a few more. A signet ring, however, reveals this to merely be an illusion. Pushing back up the path, the Commander has to leap through various traps until reaching the Contaminarium. Near the end, Beastmarshall Oluwa Eranko protects the last room, thanking the Commander for the great victory fighting at the Grand Bazaar against Balthazar, but since Joko wills her to kill the Commander, she must obey.

As the Beastmarshall falls, the Commander heads into the Contaminarium, but falls into a trap. Joko taunts the Commander for a while, but Braham pushes the Commander out, getting trapped instead. Joko continues to mock the Commander for needing a friend to sacrifice himself to go on before fighting the Commander. He even offers the compliment that the Commander is a worthy rival. After a long battle, including vanishing for a while, summoning various protectors, activating traps, and flooding the room with the plague, Joko finally falls. When he does, the Awakened nearby seem stunned, unable to act without Joko's constant commands. However, this excitement is a bit too early, as Joko rises from where he fell and traps both the Commander and Braham. He proceeds to monologue, mocking the Commander about how easy it was to claim credit for the other's victory, and how the world will celebrate after Joko finally ends the menace. However, at the climax of the speech, Aurene lunges upon Joko and proceeds to eat its body. Palawa Joko is finally defeated, releasing a surge of energy, but nearly every ally except Gorrik is repulsed by the scene; Gorrik is merely interested in the new plague specimens.

Fractals of the Mists (achievements).png 深石坑碎层

Dessa gained access to a new fractal: the 深石坑碎层.

The Fractal Explorers join a pair of tomb raiders, Kay and Torin, as they explore the lost treasure vault of the Deldrimor, Deepstone. However, as the party delved deeper into the vault, they've come to realize that the dwarven traps weren't designed to keep thieves out, but to keep something inside from leaving. The Explorers soon uncover the Light of Deldrimor by activating a crystal ward. The Light proved to not only be the key to disabling the rest of the dwarven wards, but also a powerful tool against the increasing numbers of shadow creatures harrying the party the deeper into the vault they went. At the very bottom of the vault, Torin's impatience leads him to be possessed by an ancient malignant entity, known as the Voice. Fending off the unnatural darkness with the Light of Deldrimor, the Fractal Explorers managed to defeat the entity, but only by killing Torin's body. The Fractal soon ends, leaving Kay grieving in the depths of Deepstone.

A Star to Guide Us.png 第四幕: 指路之星[5]

A Star to Guide Us Wallpaper.jpg

Palawa Joko is gone for good, and Elona can finally begin to rebuild. But when a leadership summit in Jahai is unexpectedly interrupted, Elona finds itself at the center of yet another crisis.

— In game description

With its former leader defeated, Elona has 4 major groups interested in driving the fate of Elona from here on out. At the Fortress of Jahai, a conference is held with the Sunspears, the Order of Shadows, the Mordant Crescent, and the Free Awakened (Awakened freed from Joko's control and leading their own path). Talks were going well until Aurene crashed the conference literally by falling asleep in the main hall. Taimi calls for the Commander, who is Aurene's champion, to come and comfort her enough to leave the conference. Braham leads the way south into the Jahai Bluffs through a secret passage. Once Aurene is escorted away, the conference is about to resume until Archon Iberu plots a double-cross, having various Mordant Crescent cut off the exits from the room. Luckily, Koss appears and defeats Iberu. Then another disturbance arrives: the Shatterer has come back, and is attacking all those nearby. The Commander helps escort the various delegations out, then goes through the Fortress to rescue as many Free Awakened as possible from being killed again or Branded. On the other side of the Fortress, the Shatterer flies through a giant rift, a tear in reality leading into the Mists. Kralkatorrik has moved into the Mists, and has even knocked down General Almorra's airship.

Scattered around the Jahai Bluffs, a number of disturbances has changed the landscape. There was a replica Tower of Orr, with an eternal battle between Orrians and Flame Legion soldiers; a large field straight out of the Maguuma Jungle, complete with chak; and a strange cave with otherworldly mushrooms, that give strange visions from those who breathe in the spores too deeply. These disturbances are related to Kralkatorrik's meddling, and linked to creatures like the Branded Riftstalker. A nearby village had been the victim of the Brand just moments after the conference was disrupted, but then Braham managed to find survivors of this event. They had managed to hide in a stable carved out of solid rock, thick enough to prevent the Brand from penetrating it. This causes Koss to remember about a location nearby that the Sunspears used to use that was also deep underground.

Koss and his distant descendant, Kossan, lead Braham and the Commander deep into the former Sunspear sanctuary. The bad news is that the place had been overtaken by spiders, but the good news is that they are not Branded, despite the base being squarely in the Brand. The central flame is lit, intending to bring light and safety back to the cave, but the sticky webs have prevented Kormir's fire from reaching the other sconces. The spiders and their broodmother are killed after a fierce battle, just as refugees start to file into the cave. However, a rift had just opened up outside of the newly redubbed Sun's Refuge, threatening all within. The Commander and Braham go off to fight off the Branded invaders, and are shortly aided by Eir Stegalkin, Braham's mother, and Snaff, former member of Destiny's Edge who died after Kralkatorrik's first flight. They had come bearing a message for Aurene: it is time for her to kill Kralkatorrik and take his place as an Elder Dragon. However, Aurene receives her own vision: multiple visions of various allies fighting with her against the Elder Dragon in various locations. And yet, they all end the same: with Aurene dying. Upset by this, the dragon flies off and out into the open skies.

Watching the allied dragon fly off worries many of the refugees, but Blish assures them all that he has a plan. He thinks that he could build a tracker that he could use to track Kralkatorrik's movements through the rifts, if only he had a huge magical item, like perhaps Balthazar's Sword. Various Priory members have already been searching for it and plotted a flight path for where it should have landed after the god's defeat. However, a sniper had beaten the Priory scouts in finding it and stole it away to a nearby fort. The Commander goes in to retrieve it, and finds that the sniper priestess seems very familiar, but could not remember from where. Eventually, the priestess accepts defeat and throws herself at the Commander's feet, prepared to be kill. The Commander, however, shows remarkable kindness and spares her, only looking to retrieve the sword. The priestess, Zafirah, is humbled by this gesture. However, Blish notes that the sword seems to be unpowered. Rytlock is asked to use Sohothin to reignite the sword, which acts as if it had a mind of its own. However, everything was now in place for a journey into the Mists, to feed Kralkatorrik the laced bait.

Within the Mists, a mighty battle rages on, as Glint helps lead soldiers against the Branded there. Blish sets to work on putting the tracking device on the sword, while the Commander protects him. After several minutes of work, though, Blish tells the Commander to leave, as he still needs to make some final adjustments. This, however, was a lie. Blish instead sacrificed his golem body to be the power source for the tracker. He says his goodbyes to the Commander, and asks that Dragon's Watch no longer kept any secrets from each other. He says this, because Taimi had neglected to tell that her condition has come back, affecting her worse than ever, and she has an expiry date coming up soon.

But in the final moments of grieving, who should appear but Caithe, having much to tell the Commander.

Spirit Vale (achievements).png 秘法对决

Scholar Glenna alerts the raiders to once-in-a-lifetime invitation from Zommoros to tour the fabled Mystic Forge. However the raiders soon find themselves caught in the middle of a wager made between Zommoros and the fire djinn, Qadim. Inundated by his gambling debts, Zommoros had bet the contents of his entire Mystic Forge against three challenges set by Qadim: a massive golem made from the piles of items in the Mystic Forge Acquisition Piles, a dreg shark set loose into Sorting and Appraisal, and twin largoses the fire djinn had trapped inside his menagerie, Nikare and Kenut. While the raiders managed to overcome all three challenges, they soon reveal Qadim's own gambit: the Mythwright Cauldron, a powerful artifact Zommoros had hidden under the Mystic Forge itself. After an intense battle against Qadim over the Cauldron, the raiders managed to finally the fire djinn. Unfortunately, the djinn's body had slipped off the edge, falling into the Cauldron. Qadim rose from the Mythwright Cauldron, infused with its powers, and fled.

Event Wintersday.png
雪人密巢

Bereft of Dwayna's guidance, the hearts of the snowmen have frozen over, turning snowy joy into cruel ice. Fearing the return of Grentches and Humbugs to threaten Wintersday with the absence of its guardians, the snowman Cob recruited brave adventurers from The Crown Pavilion in Divinity's Reach to venture into the Secret Lair of the Snowmen, in hopes that they will be able to save his friends.

When the details of Glints legacy are revealed, the commander and Aurene must prove their trust for one another and prepare their allies for the battle of their lives: bringing down the Crystal Dragon.

— In game description

Caithe arrives in Vabbi and tells the Commander that it's time to discuss plans with Ogden. Shortly after meeting the stone dwarf, he instantly tells them both that they are heading to Thunderhead Keep, the location where the spear that was meant to kill Kralkatorrik was first forged. But first, the Commander and Aurene must undergo yet another trial in Glint's lair, with Caithe accompanying them to keep watch. In the lair, the Commander learns how to use use the resonance crystals and gets to try out the crystal spear. Aurene gets a vision of herself Branded, but the Commander assures her that that will not happen. With the trial complete, Glint teaches Aurene about Ascension and tells the Commander much about Kralkatorrik, like how he saw a vision of a world where he did not exist. After leaving the lair, Caithe mentions that it had been 2 days since they had both entered the lair, and they all head off to the Keep.

At the keep, nearly every allied force has gathered there to prepare for the assault on Kralkatorrik, from Awakened and Olmakhan to the members of the Pact. An Exalted stands by the forge, prepared to forge a new spear, but she needs oil that the dredge harvest to the south of the forge. The dredge's settlement has been attacked by Kralkatorrik, with Branded crystals choking various parts of their machinery. Then, a new mold is taken out of an old dwarven tomb in order to craft the new spears. Sadly, the new spears are far more fragile than the original spears, but many more can be crafted, so they can be distributed among the troops.

Moving into the inner chamber, a ghost sent by Glint informs the Commander about the situation in the Mists. Rifts start opening in the large chamber, but shortly thereafter, Aurene Brands the ground, but in a positive way. Caithe herself gets Aurene-Branded, and is able to speak on behalf of the dragon spawn, communicating: "I am not him." Unfortunately, Aurene's visions of the battle turn out to be accurate, and she is killed by Kralkatorrik.

As Kralkatorrik's influence within the Mists grew, Mists Rifts began appearing throughout Tyria, each emitting Brand crystals into the surrounding areas. Adventurers dove into the rifts to kill the riftstalker within, thereby sealing the portals.

Following their catastrophic loss in Thunderhead Keep, the commander's allies gather to honor the fallen. For them, a single question lingers: What now?

— In game description

Quite a while after Aurene got encased in crystal, Caithe contacted the Commander, asking that everyone gather around for a final moment. Upon arriving at the site, Caithe decides to remove part of the crystal shell, and Aurene's body started to glow. The Commander blasts the body a couple times, and Aurene is freed, speaking for the first time. It seems having eaten Joko's magic allowed her to come back from the dead. Everyone's resolve is renewed, and Gorrik gives the Commander the location of Kralkatorrik. The Commander mounts onto Aurene's back, and she opens a rift to chase after her grandfather. After flying through three of the gods' realms, Melandru, Grenth and Balthazar, and failing to force Kralkatorrik out with just opening a portal in front of him, Aurene manages to blast off one of his wings, and Aurene manages to open a portal back to Tyria. He crashes into the ocean southeast of Orr, buried up islands that had been torn out of the Mists. This new region is dubbed "Dragonfall".

Three distinct groups set up camps on this new landmass. Rytlock and Logan join up with the Mist Raiders, led by Gwen Thackery herself. The Olmakhan ride off to the southwest. A group of soldiers call themselves the Crystal Bloom, and head off to the west. Aurene keeps up assaults on Kralkatorrik to keep him down. Taimi joins Sayida on the latter's airship, circling the islands to watch the battle unfold. After scouting the island, Braham gives the Commander surveillance probes to place all about the islands. There are islands flowing under the island which feeds and heals Kralkatorrik. After placing the three probes, Caithe and Aurene call the Commander to a rocky outcropping in the southwestern island. There, Aurene had found the skyscales, a new type of dragon not ever witnessed before. The Commander approached and befriended one, feeding it unbound magic to better befriend it and then flies up onto the severed wing. The skyscale blasts open a crystal scab, then allows the Commander to gather some of Kralkatorrik's blood. With the help of Zafirah and two Zephyrites, the Commander manages to forge a True Crystal Spear to use against the elder dragon.

After some tests of the spear, including attacking a sore spot on Kralkatorrik's claw, the Commander enters a cave leading under the islands to shut off some subterranean leylines. Zafirah, Caithe and Rytlock aid the Commander, as does Aurene, while Logan and the other armies assault the body above. However, even though the body is dead, something still stirs inside the corpse. Aurene flies the Commander into Kralkatorrik's mouth, straight to his heart. Inside, Kralkatorrik is warring with his own Torment, including the invasive magic it had already absorbed from Zhaitan, Mordremoth and Balthazar. After much fighting with each invasive magics, these magical spires inside are sealed by Aurene, before the heart is finally vulnerable to the Crystal Spear. Despite Aurene's animosity, Kralkatorrik in his final words was glad to see Aurene again for the last time.

With Kralkatorrik defeated, Aurene manages to ascend to become an Elder Dragon and flies off, as the rest of the crew flies back to Lion's Arch, having successfully defeating another Elder Dragon while leaving aside "new problem" for now.

The Key of Ahdashim wallpaper.jpg

After the events in the Mystic Forge, Qadim has returned home to the Hidden City of Ahdashim to usurp a great power. Seek the Key and the cardinals for guidance into the hallowed city walls and stop Qadim from destroying not only the djinn, but also the natural balance of the world.

— In-game description

After Qadim's escape following the events in the Mythwright Gambit, Scholar Glenna and "the esteemed champions of the Forge" are told by Zommoros to follow his trail to the city of Adashim and seek the Key of Ahdashim. They find the Key has been shattered across the courtyard packed with branded monsters. After fighting through the courtyard and assisting in retrieving the pieces restoring the Key in the fountain, the Key explains the status of the city: Qadim killed the cardinals of water and fire, coearced air and earth into joining him, and currently sits in the center draining the ley line. While the raiders are defeating both cardinals, Scholar Glenna tried to pursue the Key into sharing further information regarding about a powerful pylon. Only after the raiders manage to defeat the last cardinals that Scholar Glenna gave up and took the matter into her own hand by tempering with the pylon using flux disruptors to test her theories about ley line flow towards Qadim. Though annoyed, the Key agrees to aid the raiders and absorbs their power to prevent it flowing to Qadim. After a grueling battle with Qadim the Peerless, he explodes into unbound magic which the Key gathers and then suddenly releases, saying all djinn will together share the burden.
