    Something is going on in Kessex Hills (could be related to October 22 patch)

    Kraits have invisible "wall" over lake and they have cleared all trees & buildings near lake.





    There is this camp south of Fort Salma with Kasmeer and Marjory. They are investigating this.


    Next patch has this picture on https://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/releases/

    This is krait obelisk concept art



    What do you think. Will we get underwater stuff or what will this be?

    I just love the artwork in the game

    but I digress, surely it has something to do with the prince right?

    Which prince? I'm actually there now. The barrier is right above where the Krait Blood Witch is. Marjory and Kasmeer are there trying to figure out how to take down the illusion.

    the brand new prince, made just for halloween

    also, I enjoyed the little instance they had for him, they are getting better at this sort of thing

    Ahhh. I suspect it has nothing to do with him. Not sure how they can shoehorn the Prince in with the krait anyways. I tried to get into the lake. Most of it is blocked off by the invisible wall.

    Probably the patch after Halloween, nothing set for November right now.

    I think next patch is still going to be about the Prince, however the patch after that maybe? I like how they little by little make the next storyline ready.

    If this does have something to do with the Krait, let's hope and pray that it is permanent content that affects the zone and surrounding zones in a meaningful way (ie: moves the world story of the Krait forward, shuffles NPCs around, adds/moves/removes DEs, etc). Also, their concept art is still amazing.

    Some pics I pulled from various sources....

    Here's what the village in Kessex Hills used to look like...



    and after the patch....



    And the size of the new invisible shield. It's huge. Big enough to hold an instance at least...

    Oh dear, this looks very promising. There is a thread about it on the official forums and 3 devs have posted in it I think, this will definitely be huge

    You're not alone in that (though I would say 8.5...)

    Wait wait...everyone is getting ahead of themselves. Clearly this is just a repercussion from everyone failing this DE everytime it spawns. While I have saved that village and the captives at least 5 times, it appears that as a community we have dropped the ball on those poor guys. This won't be anything crazy, just the devs letting us know our inaction has a price.

    May the guilt of those lives be on your soul.

    The events you're thinking of is in Viathan's Arm (defend the fishers/ free the slaves). This is the bigger lake nearby. The little ruins was an escort quest with a guy and ghosts of his former family. And the stupid Krait Witch that sucked and I hated her.

    Boo, don't ruin my fun. I couldn't tell from the screenshot without blowing it up what specific section it was...it looked just like where I remembered doing that event. Oh well.

    The plot, it thickens.

    Who knows more of gods than I? Horse gods and fire gods, gods made of gold with gemstone eyes, gods carved of cedar wood, gods chiseled into mountains, gods of empty air... I know them all.
