Guild Wars 2: The Icebrood Saga Finale Continues Next Week With “ Power ”
The multi-part finale of Guild Wars 2: The Icebrood Saga continues next week with Episode Five, Chapter Two. Entitled ‘Power’, the first free-to-play MMORPG content of 2021 will see ‘fire and the furious apocalypse’ heading towards Tyria, which means not only a threat of full-scale destruction, but a new phase in the storyline, missions, saga rewards, and more.
“ Power ” will bring four new Dragon Response missions – solo or group quests that will allow you to consolidate key locations by fending off dragon minions – to Thunderhead Peaks, Fields of Ruin, Lake Doric, and Snowden Drifts. These missions will include options for the challenge if you feel like tackling something even trickier, says ArenaNet in a press release, and you’ll have greater rewards if you do (and survive to tell. ‘story, of course).
Additionally, the new chapter brings a new allied faction – the Dwarves of Deldrimor – which you can recruit as part of a new global Faction Mobilization event. Seasoned dwarves will be able to aid you in your Drago Response missions, bringing “stony tenacity and alchemical skills” to the table. Additionally, another mysterious faction will come into play on February 16, along with new upgrades for your Dragon Slayer weapons.
As for the new rewards. The ‘power’ ushers in goodies like Deldrimor’s Stoneskin Infusion ‘(no rites required)’, additional combat perks, and items from allied faction vendors that arrive via the Dragon Slayer mastery line, as well as others.

Guild Wars 2: The Icebrood Saga – Episode 5, Chapter Two launches January 19. All four chapters of the final episode will be free for players who own Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire and log in upon its release, with the next one – called “ Balance ” – to follow in March 2021.
