August 20 Content Release Notes
LIVING WORLD
Clockwork Chaos
The nefarious villain, Scarlet Briar, has made herself known to Tyria! Chaos ensues as she unleashes her clockwork minions across the world!
Closing Ceremony

  • Witness the high point of the Queen’s Jubilee! Attend the ceremony and hear the Queen’s Speech in the Crown Pavilion of Divinity’s Reach. It’s sure to end with a bang.

Clockwork Minions Invade

  • Scarlet’s clockwork minions are invading entire zones across Tyria.
  • Watch the World Event UI for new invasions.
  • All overflow maps created within 10 minutes of the start of the invasion will host a concurrent version of that hour’s event.
  • Complete additional waves of the invasion for an increasingly lucrative map-wide reward.
  • Map-wide rewards are limited to once per account, per day, per map. For example, players who claim the map-wide reward for an invasion in the Gendarran Fields will only be able to claim invasion rewards in other maps until the following day.
  • Complete all waves of an invasion to unlock a bonus battle with Scarlet.
  • Defeat Scarlet for a daily world-boss reward of two guaranteed rare items.
  • All possible maps will be invaded at least once per day.
  • Invasions will not occur in Orr, Southsun Cove, or maps suited for character levels below 25.
  • After the Clockwork Chaos release, the invasions will continue at a less frequent pace.

Scarlet’s Funhouse

  • Scarlet has claimed and occupied a prominent structure in Tyria and twisted it into a demented fun house.
  • Help Emissary Vorpp at the Crown Pavilion reverse-engineer Scarlet’s portal technology to find a way into her fun house.
  • Defeat Scarlet to restore the fun house to its proper form.

Ongoing Festivities

  • The Crown Pavilion and Queen’s Gauntlet will close for maintenance on September 3. Look for their return in the future!
