It's time to put an end to the animal attacks in Guild Wars 2's Southsun Cove.
The Guild Wars 2 living story continues as the Last Stand at Southsun update is now live. Last Stand at Southsun picks up where The Secret of Southsun left off, and now players must help Inspector Kiel track down Canach, the man behind the increased animal attacks in Southsun Cove.
All of the content in the Last Stand at Southsun event takes place on the Southsun Cove map. The first new event is an island-wide meta-event where players must defend and liberate four settlements around Southsun Cove. If they can hold all four, new vendors will spawn and offer unique items and an Enraged Karka Queen boss event may spawn. Once defeated, the Karka Queen drops a large boss chest like other world bosses, as well as two guaranteed rare or better items once per day.
ArenaNet have also added four new rare items as rewards for completing Last Stand at Southsun content, including a Mini Reef Rider pet and some shiny accessories.
If you want to check out what's in store for Last Stand at Southsun, you can watch some of the content's highlights in the video below.
Along with culmination of the Southsun Canach story arch, the update also includes a ton of World vs. World changes to create more varied matchups. One interesting change is that players will now receive a chest filled with all sorts of goodies whenever they increase their WvW rank.
