SCARS OF THE AWAKENED
Ever vigilant, Norrathians march united under the banner of the New Combine army, deeper into the perilous continent of Velious.

Finally, the army breaches the borders of a region known as Cobalt Scar - a majestic, lush, but tormented region. And from within dark passages in the surrounding mountains, the inhabitants of Sirens Grotto beckon to all.

The first news heard from Cobalt Scar concerns tribes of Othmir that succumbed to an unfortunate fate that now threatens everyone. Further examination into the area will reveal a foreboding presence of the Awakened Legion, a force of evil that decimated dragonkind in the legendary city of Skyshrine.

Nearby, in the watery depths of Sirens Grotto - unseen by landwalkers for the ages – it is said that the caverns hold secrets of their own. And the beguiling siren coven known as the Darkwater Sisters will not give up those secrets easily.

All the while, the Ages End Prophecy looms with its promise to see Kerafyrm - Norrath's most evil, powerful dragon - bring a violent end to the world. Heroes from every corner of Norrath are called to explore this new land in Velious and fight for a future for all.

Features:
• New overland zone, Cobalt Scar: Includes a new story quest line and new collections
• New dungeon, Siren's Grotto: Includes Solo, Group, and Raid challenges
• New Tradeskill quest line
• New Tradeskill Apprentice daily tasks
• Class updates based on feedback
• PvP reward updates

To reach Cobalt Scar, hail either the Combine griffin tamer located on the docks in Great Divide or the tamer near the entrance of The Withered Lands!
