Guild Wars 2: Unholy Grounds

August 23rd, 2013 Guild Wars 2

 

…Among the midsts of the Bloodtide Coast lies a Hylek settlement of the Momoztli tribe.  Little do they know their village is in danger.

The Undead Legions of Orr rise from the waters to the south to lay waste to all that is not like them.

The Hylek are what they are.  But they are not aware of the strength and impending doom Orr’s undead bring with them.  The Durmand Priory wants the Hylek to unite with them against the dragons.  This is a chance to recruit them.

Hylek aren’t ones to simply trust an outsider. They need proof, which is fair. We are running out of time, but we have to earn their trust.

We’ll do what it takes to earn their respect, be it partake in their ceremonies, participate in their tournaments and challenges.  In order for them to listen to us, we have to respect them…

Ikniu, our first Momoztli contact. His brother succumbed to the undead…

Upon helping Ikniu and earning his trust, we are taken to chief of the Momoztli, Chief Quecuan, and Priestess Ecolotl.

Priestess Ecolotl is not thrilled that Ikniu has brought us here…

…and though she doesn’t see our worth, Chief Quecuan does.

After honoring their challenges, Quecuan directs us to the village. Near the Momoztli Grounds the Durmand Priory has an expedition, but their hands are full. They are dealing with haunted pirate relics and ghosts…

The Orr attack is imminent. Hylek scouts have seen the Risen approaching… though perhaps a lost cause, we must stand with the Hylek.

The reaches of Orr are greater than imagined. Orrian Fingers come up through the ground.

The invasion subsided, the village is now an empty, bare cave.

Some Hylek survived. They will have to be strong and rebuild.

Despite the losses, we have recovered an attractive weapon – The Avenger’s Longbow.

Seems nice and lightweight…
