We did it, people. Lion's Arch is free once more, as Scarlet's forces are no longer present after today's Guild Wars 2 patch. With the update comes The Battle for Lion's Arch: Aftermath, where the once bustling city now lies in ruins, and the heroes take some time to reflect on all whole Scarlet Briar mess. Better catch your breath now before the dragons show up, though.
If you've been keeping up with all the crazy Living Story stuff, then you'd already know Scarlet is finally dead. For players who missed out on the climactic battle, however, ArenaNet released the ending cinematic for all to enjoy. And in their defense, the cinematic was pretty epic. Dead Scarlet is somehow creepier than Alive Scarlet, and a mystery dragon appears at the very end.
So far, players have speculated this is Mordremoth, the Jungle Elder Dragon, due to the Maguuma jungles appearing in the cutscene right before we see a dragon's mouth slowly open.
As of today, the Dead End Bar is open once more, and you can visit Marjory, Kasmeer, Braham, Rox, and Taimi. Additionally, the third series of mini pets was released, plus three new hairstyles for every gender of every race.
