Default Guild Wars 2: Lion's Arch is being rebuilt!

May 21st, 2015, 05:10
I haven't logged into this game for months, but it's a testament to how much I enjoyed Guild Wars 2 at release and bought into its world of Tyria that I find myself ridiculously excited to learn its capitol city of Lion's Arch is now being rebuilt after its destruction more than a year ago at the hands of the wicked sylvari Scarlet Briar.

ArenaNet's Gaile Gray writes:
The plan of the city leaders is not to attempt to fully restore the landmark as it once was, but rather to implement an enhanced design that will more realistically serve the Tyria of today. In light of the lessons learned from the attack by Scarlet Briar and her massive airship drill, the Breachmaker, the city will be a more fortified city, with a design intended to protect citizen and visitor alike.

And yet, the city will retain its distinctive beauty.

Neat. LA was probably the most awe-inspiring city in any game, MMO or otherwise. Its shear scale just made you stop and stare. Really wish this game had some sort of endgame =/

I had to go check it out. Here's a screen I took of the ruins with the new scaffolding in the background.

The cities were pretty much the best thing about the game, imo. Majestic.

It's just getting rebuilt to be destroyed again. First the Karka invasion destroy a bunch of things in the city and it was rebuilt, then, right when all the repairs were done, Scarlet invaded and totally destroyed the whole place.

Saying that, I can't way for the airfield and airships. I love the fish-airship.
