The Zaishen Order has kept this secret tropical location in the Battle Isles hidden from outsiders – until now! Embark Beach is a scenic, full-service beachfront outpost that offers a variety of service and merchant NPCs to cater to your character’s needs. From Embark Beach, your party can travel together to any destination in any Guild Wars campaign or expansion that they’ve purchased. It’s the perfect place to embark on an adventure!
Need some companions for your travels? Fight alongside other characters on your account with our new Mercenary Heroes, available in the In-Game Store and NCsoft Store.
When you purchase a Mercenary Hero slot you can “hire” any level 20 character on your account to travel with you as a Hero. When you purchase a Mercenary Hero slot, you can create a custom Hero that keeps your character’s name, profession, appearance, and whatever armor or costume they’re equipped with. Once you’ve purchased a Mercenary Hero slot, you just speak to one of the new Mercenary Registrar NPCs in all major towns. Create your own unique, customized party with Mercenary Heroes today!
Embark Beach and Mercenary Heroes aren’t the only new additions in the latest update. Here are the highlights:
