GW2: Tequatl Rising Launches Today

In keeping with their extremely consistent content releases, GW2 one-ups their own undead dragon Lieutenant, Tequatl the Sunless. But beware, this new encounter is designed to be a challenge for “an army” of players! ArenaNet also tinkered with every boss in the game, retuning every encounter to be more rewarding.

Also, finally, a LFG tool is on its way, WvW has new shineys, and there are brand new wings you, too, can collect during this event.

******************************
It has been gathering power in the depths.

It is faster, stronger, deadlier.

It has returned to devour and destroy.

It is called Tequatl the Sunless… and it has evolved.
