Guild Wars 2 Twilight Assault is like a teddy bears picnic… of evil

If you go down to the woods Twilight Arbor today you’re sure of a big surprise,

If you go down to the Twilight Arbor today you’d better go in disguise,

For every bear beast that ever there was will gather there for certain,

Because today’s the day the evil beasts have their picnic infiltrate the Sylvari stronghold.

Next week’s Guild Wars 2 update sees new quests for level 80s,exotic nightmare weapons, and more.

The Twilight Assault quest line has you infiltrate the Twilight Arbor on behalf of sylvari hero Caithe. Scarlet and the Nightmare Couriers are up to no good there and it’s for you to stop them.

A party of level 80s will join Caithe in fighting through a secret facility where you’ll “Take out guards, puzzle your way through tricks and traps, and bring down the monster at the pounding heart of the stronghold.” Completing the quest earns you a glow in the dark Slickpack item for your back and a miniature version of one of Twilight Assault’s bosses.

The folk you fight in the Twilight Arbor also have a chance to drop Nightmare weapons (which also glow).

Finally, “across the Maguuma Jungle, players can find Aether Key Pieces. Collect and combine five of these to form a key that will open Aether Chests in the new path of Twilight Arbor.

You can see all the new content at work in a developer livestream that’s running 30 September at 12pm PDT.
