Lion's Gate is an explorable area where Factions and Nightfall characters first appear when traveling from their home continents to Tyria.

Cutscene dialogue[]

Warning: The following text contains spoilers relating to the plot of the Prophecies Campaign.

When entering Lion's Gate:

  • Plain text: "Kryta. The City of Lion's Arch. 1582 CC."
  • Plain text: "Of the great kingdoms of old, Ascalon has been all but destroyed by the invading Charr army. The Shiverpeaks... home of the Deldrimor Dwarves... are torn by civil war. No outsiders may trespass there. The lands of Orr lie at the bottom of the ocean, destroyed in a cataclysmic explosion. Only Kryta remains... the last hope for the great kingdoms of Tyria, and new home to the refugees of Ascalon. And now, evil turns its eyes on Kryta. An army of undead threatens to bring destruction to the last of Tyria's great kingdoms. The people of Kryta and the refugees of Ascalon turn in search of heroes who can bring peace to Tyria. But who shall answer the call?"

Getting there[]

Lion's Gate is accessed as part of the quests Chaos in Kryta and Terror in Tyria by Factions and Nightfall characters respectively. Prophecies characters travel here as part of the Sunspears in Kryta quest if they wish to travel to Elona. They can also access the area by talking to Lionguard Bedo in Lion's Arch, although there is nothing to do in this small explorable area.
