Guild Wars 2 reveals details about flight in new expansion

Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure Guild Wars 2 Skyscale

Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure is coming soon, and with it some flight changes pertaining to the Skyscale mount.

You can read the announcement below:

We’re only a few weeks away from the launch of Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure™. When the expansion launches on August 22, it’ll bring all-new areas to explore, set high in the skies above Tyria: two new explorable zones and the Wizard’s Tower outpost, with another map to open up in following releases as the story progresses. To help you explore those maps, you’ll also get access to a new, streamlined method to unlock your skyscale mount, plus new Masteries for flying mounts.

The raptor mount will also be unlocked for owners of Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure, although you’ll still need Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire™ to train its associated Masteries.

The announcement is massive, but the gist of things is that there will be alternate methods of obtaining the Skyscale mount, since the new expansion areas will have a big emphasis on flight as a method of transport.

Guild Wars 2 is available on Microsoft Windows (through Steam), with the new expansion Secrets of the Obscure coming on August 22, 2023.
