Guild Wars 2 To Introduce The New ‘Key Of Ahdashim’ Raid Later This Month

guild wars 2 key of ahdashimLooking for something to do this summer? Why not get together with your Guild Wars 2 buddies and take on the new Key of Ahdashim raid? ArenaNet will be rolling out the new raid on June 11th.

“The raid takes place immediately following the events of the Mythwright Gambit raid, in which players stepped inside the Mystic Forge to help Zommoros beat back his djinn rival. Now, Qadim has invaded the djinn’s home city of Ahdashim, determined to hijack its mythical power and place himself above all other djinn. Should he succeed, Ahdashim will become a black hole of magical corruption, infecting every djinn alive — and through them the natural world itself.”

Starting June 11th, players will also be collect Condensed Ley-Line Essences from certain world bosses across the game world. These Essences can be used to create “shiny weapons” by bringing them to skritt near the Mystic Forge. Are your shiny weapons not shiny enough? Talk to skritt to learn how to make them even shinier. The limited-time event runs until June 25th.

While you're waiting for the raid to come out, ArenaNet will also be holding a Meta-Event Rush from today until the raid’s launch next week. During the event, players will be able to participate in meta-events to earn Bonus Boxes of Goods. Completing the events will also contribute towards unlocking tiered community goals with bonus rewards given out to all participants for each tier they unlock. Remember to keep a close eye on the in-game event tracker to make sure you don’t miss out on any rewards.

Before you go running to complete those events, you might want to take a few minutes to check out the official Key of Ahdashim trailer after the break.
