Lion’s Arch. Much has changed, but Lion’s Arch lives on. This is where the 5 races will begin to meet up, an independent city beholden to no particular race.
I watch the video below and can’t help but think about how amazingly detailed and beautiful it is. Sanctum or Meridian? Bland cities are bland.
Just try to tell me this doesn’t blow other cities in other games out of the water.
Just the idea of styling the city after pirates, and taking that idea to the extreme with ships and nautical themed architecture absolutely everywhere is impressive. I also liked seeing throwbacks to Lion’s Arch of old with the stone lion statues, and rising pillars of rock.
Arenanet has a bit of lore and information in their blog post.
Edit: They also posted a second time about the design and production of Lion’s Arch from a game developers point of view.
