Living World

New Release: Champions Chapter 3—Balance

As the machinations of Jormag come to light, Dragon’s Watch enters a war on two fronts. In the third chapter of the Icebrood Saga’s finale, join your allies and seek out a way to end the conflict.

  • Three new Dragon Response Missions are now available. Note that these missions will contain spoilers for the Champions story if you play them before they occur in your story journal.
  • Driven from their homes in Drizzlewood and beset anew by the Icebrood, some tribes of the secretive tengu have taken up arms to join your cause. Meet with the tengu representatives in the Eye of the North, and join them on the battlefield in Dragon Response Missions. Complete daily achievements on their behalf to aid their efforts and earn rewards. As the world completes tiers of progress, everyone who helped will earn extra rewards from their representative.
  • Additionally, Efram’s Flame Legion has joined the fight, spurred by attacks in Fireheart Rise. Look for their support in Dragon Response Missions!
  • New daily achievements for the new set of Dragon Response Missions have been added to the rotation. When entering the missions through the Eye of the North’s asura gate, you’ll now see a prompt for quick access to uncompleted response-mission dailies.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the story mission state from displaying in private Dragon Response Missions.
  • Updated the direction players face after using emergency pact waypoints in Dragon Response Missions to prevent players from facing odd angles.
  • Updated unclear instructions regarding braziers in the Snowden Drifts Response Mission’s opening event.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Alkar’s Alchemical Acid to grant more special action skill charges than intended.

Volcanic Throne

This fiery chair was inspired by the astounding lava falls of Ember Bay. Don’t worry about feeling the burn—it’s cool to the touch and perfectly safe to relax in.
