NEW TIER OF RAIDS: BINDINGS OF BLOOD
Travel back in time to aid legendary heroes in their quest to imprison The Blood Storm. Delve once more into Greenscale’s Lair and the depths of Hammerknell– but first, be sure to gather your fellow Ascended, as mysterious and powerful forces seek to ensure that Telara’s fate is rewritten.GENERAL

* Any gear that could be purchased with any of the above currencies is no longer available on the Store.
