Cause a Storm with a “Brand” New Look

  • Branded Legacy Chest

106dfMTX_BrandedRelic01-590x332.png

Inside each Branded Legacy Chest, you’re guaranteed to find a piece of Teal Branded Mist, a redeemable Black Lion Statuette, and two common items. You also have a chance to discover something rarer in the fifth slot, including exclusive items, glyphs, and skins from the Dominator Weapon Collection and Ley-Line Weapon Collection.

Guaranteed Item: Teal Branded Mists
Use this mysterious item to grant yourself Teal Crystallization. While the effects are active, defeat enemies for a chance to find Teal Petals, then combine twelve petals to form a valuable Teal Bloom. These beautiful crystalline petals and blooms are highly sought after and will fetch a handsome price from vendors.

Exclusive Items—Branded Package and Hydra Staff
Before you head off to face down the Crystal Dragon, stay safe and look sharp by strapping on a brand new look with the Branded Relic Glider and Branded Relic Backpiece.

Fearsome three-headed hydras wander the Crystal Desert in search of prey, but there’s no need for you to risk your life to get a good look. The three heads of this staff skin have been magically enchanted to act lifelike, but don’t worry—while they may sniff and hiss at each other, we’re reasonably sure they won’t bite you. This skin is back as an exclusive uncommon drop from Black Lion Chests for a limited time!

71599MTX_BrandedWeapons-590x332.png

Branded Weapon Collection
These twisted, crystalline weapons were found in the hands of their previous wielders—both having been corrupted by the Dragonbrand. Head over to the Black Lion Weapons Specialists and trade in one Black Lion Claim Ticket per skin to add sharp new looks to your armory.

Update: Guaranteed Wardrobe Unlock
The Guaranteed Wardrobe Unlock just got even better with the addition of hundreds of new items!

Recharging Teleport to Friend

e19b8gw099.jpg

You’re never far from your friends with this handy recharging teleporter in your bag. This permanent item works just like a Teleport to Friend token, whisking you across Tyria to a party member’s location—but doesn’t disappear after you use it. Just give its internal reactor an hour to cool down and you’ll be ready to teleport again.

Living World Season 4 Complete Package

War is eternal, and so is your ability to play Living World Season 4. Purchase this package to add any Living World Season 4 episode you haven’t previously unlocked to your account, ready for play.

Meet the New Voice of the Female Charr Player Character

Please join us in welcoming our new English-language voice for the female charr player character, Mara Junot! The previous voice actor, Kate Miller, was unable to continue in the role due to other scheduling commitments, and we wish her all the best with her upcoming projects.

You’ll hear Mara as the English voice of the female charr commander for the first time in the Living World Season 4 finale, “War Eternal.” You may already be familiar with her work in other games, on television, or as the voice of several nonplayer characters in Living World Season 4.

We’re excited to have Mara aboard as part of the Guild Wars 2 family! With her talent and expertise, the future of Tyria is in great hands.
