Dynamic world events mean that there is always some spectacle to observe and take part in, should you wish. Natural and unnatural occurrences are consistently taking place, and it’s entirely up to you whether or not you wish to participate or observe.
A new PvE force, the Aratai have been announced, who will attack you and try to drive you from their world. Band together with your friends to carve a path into the world.
