Lion's Arch Keep was the Krytan royal family's seat of power when they still ruled, but they were largely destroyed during the Charr invasion, and those who survived fled. But now the lost princess, Salma, has returned and sits upon the throne once more, as she fights a war in Kryta against the White Mantle.

Getting there[]

Speak to the Lion's Arch Keep Gate Guard to gain entrance to the explorable Lion's Arch area; the guard can be found in front of the gate in the northeast corner of Lion's Arch (not far from Merkin). Note: everyone in the party must have witnessed Livia recruiting Zinn (Dialogue #4 at the Shining Blade camp in the Talmark Wilderness).

  • The three old men Antwyn, Carden, and Jorith are references to the anime series Cowboy Bebop, where a similar group of three old men named Antonio, Carlos, and Jobim appear throughout the series, telling stories of their younger days.
    • The characters in Cowboy Bebop are named after Antonio Carlos Jobim, a Brazilian jazz composer and performer who was a primary force behind the development of the bossa nova style.
