About 500 years ago, a man named Shiro Taji brought the distant land of Cantha into submission. Driven by the fallen god Abaddon, he turned to forbidden art, slaughtered the emperor and devoured his soul. His defeat in that distant era was a costly victory, triggering a devastating magical catastrophe that changed everything from the birds to the trees, from the ocean itself to the emeralds.
The Fields Will Return Hundreds of Years Later, Playing the 2006 Villain battle faction, The second story chapter of the original game.throughout the event faction, Players and their comrades work to thwart Takachi’s efforts to resurrect himself and wreak havoc on the world. In the end, they succeeded.
Just a few short years later, Cantha closed its borders with the world. A lot has happened since then.
The Shire gained independence, killed their god of darkness and sparked an industrial revolution. Both the norn and the Asuras were driven from their ancestral homeland by the terrifying power of the ancient dragons. Sylvari was born, from the branches of the Pale Tree.Finally, the Contract Commander – the player character Guild Wars 2 – born in.
The jury is still out on whether that’s a good thing.
A world torn apart by magic
“Certainly no one would be so monumental stupid As for destroying a Dragon, the vitality of this world. ”
In the past, Tyria’s magic was finely balanced between six huge primitive creatures known as the Elder Dragons. Some believe they are always pure forces of destruction, wiping out entire civilizations, engulfing the world in an endless cycle of death and rebirth. Others argue that what they are now is a perversion of what they should have been.
In any event, these dragons will inevitably clash with the people of Tyria – and with the Pact Commander as well. Zaitan, the Elder Dragon of Death and Shadow, fell first, being shot down into the skies of Orr in the climax of the core game.Then, in Heart of Thorns Expansionthe commanders and their allies brought down Mordremoth, slaying the elder dragons of plants and minds in a spiritual realm known as the Dreamland.
Kralkatorrik, the Elder Dragon of Crystal and Fury, died next and was eliminated in Living World Season 4. Then, in Icebrood Saga, Primordus and Jormag – Fire and Conflagration and Ice and Persuasion, respectively – pitted against each other. With every curse on their twins, they end up coming together.
Sounds like an inspiring story so far, right?
There is only one small problem.Research by one of the Commander’s comrades, Taimi, suggests that killing an ancient dragon is likely rest Tyria. With every dragon you kill, the world may get closer and closer to its end.
Today, only one of the original six remains – a sneaky mystical creature known only as a deep-sea dragon.
But hope was not lost. In this ongoing conflict, a new Elder Dragon was born. Granddaughter of Krakatto, adopted son of the Pact Commander.
Aurene, the dragon of crystal and light.
grow from hatching Living World Season 3, way of fire, and Living World Season 4, Aurene was instrumental in many of the most climactic duels of the game.She bravely stood by the commander’s side against the god of war and gave her grandfather a fatal blow – fulfilling his last request
With Krakattor’s death, Aurene became a true ancient dragon, absorbing the magic unleashed by her brethren. This power will allow her to play a pivotal role in the days to come. Because with the fall of Primordus and Jormag, unprecedented things happened.
Cantha reopened the door.
Two centuries of isolation left Cantha almost beyond recognition.
Early in her seclusion, Cantha established various mines and quarries throughout the Emerald Sea. These operations exist both to excavate valuable materials and to reclaim land lost to the Jade Wind. The real potential of jade was discovered thanks to the founder of the Xunlai Jade Company, a woman named Mrs. Qiong.
Realizing that even the tiniest piece of jade holds enormous mystical energies, she quickly sets about harnessing these energies. The result of her efforts, known as the Dragon Jade, became the basis for a national technological renaissance. Sensing an opportunity, Joon sets up his own company and merges with the prestigious Xunlai Banking Association.
In the blink of an eye, the Sunda Emerald Company has completely changed the empire. Its towns are almost entirely powered by jade technology, which now plays a pivotal role in everyday life. Xunlai Jade also created an army of ingenious mechs, robots and machines to protect Cantha and its people.
Modern Cantha is a sprawling empire with verdant coastlines, zigzagging forests and alpine temples lined with the neon-lit streets of New Cantha, a metropolis that contains both the seat of Canthan’s government and the heart of Lady Joon’s corporate empire.
As you might have guessed, all is not great here. There is constant conflict between the rival factions that make up Canthan society, each vying for dominance. The Emerald Brotherhood is the most notable — and arguably the most dangerous.
It started as a powerful gang operating on the streets of Cannon and is now helmed by Ms Joon’s former business partner Chul-Moo. In the early days of Xunlaiyu, Joon realized that Chul-Moo was too willing to cut corners for higher profits. She decides to sever ties, at which point Chul-Moo finds his way into the Emerald Brotherhood.
There, he used his business prowess and expertise to quickly take control of the gang. Chul-Moo brought in its own engineers to reshape the Brotherhood into one of Xunlai Jadeite’s biggest rivals – even though it sold improved second-hand technology and maintained a riskier business model.
Although not recognized as the official manufacturer of jade technology, the Emerald Brotherhood has managed to establish a solid foothold, expanding their business beyond the streets and alleys of Kenon and into the Echovald Wilds.
To make matters worse, the Aetherblade – the sky pirate faction that once served the infamous Crimson Thorns – is back. No one has yet confirmed their plans for Cantha. It’s just that, if they’re not stopped, they could plunge Tyria into a war that can never be recovered.
As the cycles that have supported Tyria for thousands of years unravel around you, you must gather your allies and return to the ancient dragon empire, a land of intrigue, unrest and victory.
Every battle since the battle with Jaitan has led to this. The climax of a millennium-long war with ancient dragons. A climax that may finally reveal the secrets of the ancient dragon cycle.
Tyria’s future is once again in your hands. Once again, the choices you make will have far-reaching consequences, reverberating throughout history. Once again, it’s time to take up arms – hopefully you don’t inadvertently burn Cantha in the process.
(Hey, we’re all thinking.)
