But in the “good” news category is the game’s newest content drop, the fifth episode of season three of the Living World story, titled Flashpoint. It’s the second-to-last episode of the current season, and tasks Tyria’s heroes with investigating the way-too-friendly Mursaat, Lazarus the Dire.
The long-awaited addition of legendary armor is also included in this update, along with a new legendary weapon: the torch called Flames of War. Why doesn’t anyone ever make Flames of Peace? Also, the price of the Heart of Thorns expansion — essentially the full game — has been permanently discounted to $29.99 for the base game, with higher price tags for the fancier versions.
