  • Two major parts to the trailer: Taimi & Braham in Dry Top, under attack from the Inquest, and the leader’s summit in the Grove which also come under attack from an unseen threat.
  • A screenshot has been released of a new area in Dry Top that we should be visiting. See it here.
  • Taimi in Dry Top appears extremely vulnerable – where has Scruffy gone?
  • Will we see Mordremoth’s first Dragon Champion as the attack on the Grove? What would be the best way to implement it – open world or dungeon?
  • Mordrem creature design: thumbs up to ArenaNet on making them stand out from Nightmare creatures, and have interesting mechanics to play against. What would shaking up the dungeon meta with these new creatures be like?
