Scarlet Briar is one of Guild Wars 2’s most infamous faces, but as End of Dragons brings her machinations to a close, ArenaNet is hinting that even more dangerous foes will follow her – but be aware there are spoilers.
Some characters are just made to be Poorly, and Scarlet Briar from Guild Wars 2 is one of the worst of the bunch. The sylvari sniper responsible for the bloodshed at the Battle of Lion’s Arch and the subsequent awakening of the Elder Dragon Mordremoth has etched herself into GW2’s history as a tyrant bent on destruction.
Eventually she was killed in Lion’s Arch, and her corruption transcends the veil between life and death in End of Dragons, where she possesses an unsuspecting Mai Trin. With her echo still lingering in Tyria, fans have probably been wondering whether or not we’ll see her influence in future expansions.
Chat with Dexerto about Scarlet’s future in Guild Wars 2; Living World Season 1 Team Lead Joe Kimmes revealed that while her story may be over, there’s no shortage of terrifying creatures lurking in the shadows with a knack for mayhem.
Guild Wars 2 End of Dragons could be Scarlet’s last story
While “Mai Trin and Scarlet’s roles in End of Dragons began to take shape well before the Season 1 restoration project,” Kimmes hints that her EoD cameo appearance might just be her last, apart from the Living World seasons of the game.
“As you read this, the storytelling team is hard at work on the next stories set in Tyria, so I can’t reveal any details!” he notes. “That said, I think with End of Dragons bringing the game’s longest arc, the conflict with the Elder Dragons, to some sort of conclusion, there’s certainly room for new threats and enemies to enter the stage.”
Whether this means entirely new faces or ones we’ve met by accident remains unclear, but it seems like Scarlet and her legacy of sin are finally being put to rest.
Set amidst the jade-hued streets of the mysterious technological paradise of Cantha, End of Dragons transports players to a world where imaginations run wild. Living World Season 1 returns as part of the game’s development cycle, reintroducing the ancient story of Scarlet’s War five different episodes.
Episode 1 is already underway and Episode 2 is set to be released May 24thplayers can re-enter the most iconic chapter in Tyrian history and challenge this ancient foe once again, possibly for the last time.
