During the War in Kryta, Lion's Arch Keep has fallen back into the hands of the Lionguard, the Shining Blade and the monarchy (in the form of Princess Salma).

Getting there[edit]

The Lion's Arch Keep area can be accessed from the regular Lion's Arch by talking to the Lion's Arch Keep Gate Guard after viewing the scene where Livia recruits Zinn in the Talmark Wilderness. See flowchart for details.

Other allies[edit]


  • The Lionguard and Shining Blade on top of the gate wall all have special dialogue.
  • The dialogues between Antwyn, Jorith, and Carden occur randomly and in random order. If you don't get a dialogue, rezone until you get one.
  • While in the keep, banners in LA that usually show White Mantle imagery are replaced with royal golden griffin banners.

  • Antwyn, Carden and Jorith are references to three old men in the anime Cowboy Bebop. In the anime the men appear throughout the story and talk amongst themselves telling tall tales and exaggerated stories about their younger days.
  • Before the July 8, 2010 update, this area was called "Lion's Arch".
  • Before completion of the Battle for Lion's Arch quest, all the NPCs usually found in the town are visible from this area.
