The Icebrood Saga is the fifth season of the Living World, accessible to players who own Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire. It was announced on August 30, 2019, and started with Prologue: Bound by Blood, on September 17, 2019. This article assumes knowledge of the storyline up to and including Living World Season 4, which takes place after Path of Fire. While all seems quiet in the wake of Kralkatorrik’s defeat, whispers of trouble are stirring in the Northern Shiverpeaks. In this new Living World story, you and your allies will find yourselves at the center of a gathering storm as an ancient and insidious threat slowly reveals itself. Together you’ll face Jormag’s cult, the Icebrood, who have been twisted by the Elder Dragon’s corrupting power. The Icebrood Saga focuses on the norn and the charr, as they defend their homelands in the Far Shiverpeaks and the Blood Legion Homelands from the threat of Jormag, the Elder Dragon of Ice and Persuasion. The saga begins with the four charr High Legions gathering in Grothmar Valley to celebrate the death of Kralkatorrik, while Jormag begins to stir in the far north. Through its promises of power, the Elder Dragon has amassed a sizable army of Icebrood. After the prologue in Grothmar Valley, Rytlock Brimstone, Braham, and Jhavi Jorasdottir will lead the venture into the inhospitable Far Shiverpeaks, where players will face eldritch abominations, learn about the history of the Spirits of the Wild, and confront Jormag. A saga is a long story of the adventures of a hero or a family, especially a medieval prose narrative written in Old Norse or Old Icelandic. The Icebrood Saga is known as “Bloed en Ijs” and “Sangre y Hielo” (Blood and Ice) in Dutch and Spanish, respectively. On February 10, 2020, the Guild Wars 2 twitter account tweeted, “Due to a bug, Episode 1 of The Icebrood Saga is currently free in the #GuildWars2 gem store. We have a fix going in for that tomorrow, but in the meantime if you have not unlocked Whisper in the Dark yet, log in to get it for free today!
