Guild Wars 2: The Dragon's Reach will continue next Tuesday, August 12, when a new Living Story update is set to go live. The Elder Dragon Mordremoth is finally awakened, after his corruption plagued Tyria for over a month, and he might just be in the mood to show his face for the first time since Season 2 began. That's what the new teaser trailer is suggesting, anyway, assuming it can be taken at face value.
ArenaNet today released a short but exciting video that hints at Mordremoth's long-awaited arrival. In it, the Pale Tree speaks of an ancient evil and the "shadow of the dragon." We see her in the Grove, as she ominously states that nowhere is safe, just before all the lights in the sylvari city go out and an unknown entity descends. Honestly, it's about time we killed another Elder Dragon.
All that aside, the next update will also open up more of Dry Top for your exploring pleasure, and Anet mentioned there being new foes to encounter. I'm crossing my fingers for an organized skritt army, led by the Skritt Queen champ.
