June 25 Content Release Notes
LIVING WORLD
Sky Pirates of Tyria
Attention: the skies of Tyria have turned treacherous. A new breed of pirates is descending

upon Tyria! Lethal and precise, they strike from above like a bolt of lightning. The

Lionguard knows little about them, but this violent faction was behind the attack on the

Dragon Bash effigy ceremony and is responsible for a growing swath of murders. With help

from citizens like you, we thwarted their plot to usurp a seat on the Ship’s Council, but

the Lionguard will not rest. Today, all who read this are deputized to join me in

discovering the Aetherblades’ secret headquarters and bringing these killers to justice.
—Captain Ellen Kiel of the Ship’s Council
Aetherblade Retreat

A secret entrance to an Aetherblade hideout has been discovered in Lion’s Arch behind

the waterfall by the Diverse Ledges. A Lionguard is stationed outside of the entrance to

easily route players to Inspector Kiel, who is gathering a squad to infiltrate the secret

Aetherblade lair. This is a challenging story dungeon designed for parties of five that

takes the fight to the Aetherblades. Players will encounter swarms of Aetherblade

cutthroats, the devious asura engineer Frizz, and ultimately, Captain Mai Trin and her hard

-hitting first mate Horrik.
