Rebuilding Lions Arch

Well the day has come where Lions Arch is finally under construction!  I took the time to go around the city and take some screenshots of construction site and workers.  I will miss the old city full of boats and the harbor atmosphere so popular among the city.  Only time will tell how the new Lions Arch will finally look.

Dead End Tavern

Recently Ellagwen received a letter from Kasmeer Meade to attend a celebration at Dead End Tavern in Divinity’s Reach.  The celebration was to jubilate  the death of Scarlet Briar.  The whole gang was going to be there: Rox, Mahory Delaguqa and Braham Eirsson.  Taimi, the Asura also showed up to discuss the Scarlet incident.

“Cheers” went up when Ellagwen stepped into the room for her accomplishment in 

helping defeat Scarlet Briar.  

Ellagwen and Kasmeer had a discussion about the dragon many were talking about.  When Scarlet and her Breachmaker were drilling in the ocean floor, it is said that the drill caused the elder dragon to stir.  Ellagwen went on to explain that Scarlet disturbed the ley lines , knowing they feed the dragon.  Dragons consume the magic in the ley lines which are currents in an ocean of magic.  Scarlet had all the intentions of doing this and now Tyria was going to have to deal with the awakening of one if most deadly enemies.

A Day in the field/ And a revisit to Lion’s Arch

Adaliind started her day off as she always does.  She was prepared to go out and farm for minerals and just enjoy the beautiful day and adventures that may await her.  She started off in the Shiverpeaks Mountains in Lornar’s Pass.  She was near the Winterthaw trading post when she came across some Destroyers.  After taking care  of them she ventured further out and came across a tribe of Ettis.  Once again they were not friendly and deadly matters had to be initiated.   Lastly, she decided to visit her favorite place, Lion’s Arch.  She was one of the hero’s that had taken Scarlet down, so she was intrigued to go visit the city and see how it all fared out.  As she visited she kept hearing whispers of an Elder Dragon that might have awoken during Scarlet’s drilling in the bottom of the sea.  Adaliind’s hair raised up on the back of her neck, an Elder Dragon, a worthy opponent is all she could envision.  Only time would tell if this rumor was true.  But if it was, it was a battle she definitely would look forward to with great anticipation!

Several of the memorials seen around the city.  This one is actually thanking some of the heroes of Lion’s 

Arch for their courage and valor in defending the city.  Adaliind was amazed to find her name on the board.

Much damage and months of work it will take to rebuild Lion’s Arch

Many citizens left behind are trying to find places where they can temporarily call home.

Lionguard is trying to maintain peace and keep looters away from peoples belongings left in the rubble.

Much of the water is filled with debris, but it was nice to find this Quaggan home still intact.

Hopefully its owners will return soon. The sea is also showing signs of returning life.  Crabs, Shrimps,

schools of fish, Salmon and jellyfish are among some of the creatures seen so far.

And yet another memorial for those souls that were lost during this battle.

Lion’s Arch

I figured since the event with Lion’s Arch is coming to a close, I would take the time to grab some pictures of the city.  Some areas I could not get to since they were guarded by mobs, but I did get some good shots anyway.  These were all taken by Lady Survonna as she journeyed through the destruction of Lion’s Arch.

Truffles?

While Zeallana was questing around Kessex Hills,  she came across the Eukaryan Caves and met with Malal, a Hylek frog that watches over the caves.  He likes to have visitors dig for truffles.  What he doesn’t tell you is what FORM you will be in as you dig………
