|The Guild Wars 2 Wiki has an article on Lion's Arch.|
- Oozes and rats were added to this town when Guild Wars Eye of the North was released to show that tremors had caused cracks to appear in the earth and releasing underground vermin. They were removed in the September 10th 2008 update.
- Lion's Arch was originally named "Lagbourough", and was renamed five times, including Hakewood (a name utilized by another krytan town during the early, pre-BWE Alpha and re-used later for a differently-decorated nearby location of the presently-operating city), before finally shipping in-game as Lion's Arch. 
- Gaile Gray used to have conversations with the frog as a form of in-game chat.
