One of the vacation destinations awaiting Guild Wars 2 players in Heart of Thorns is Tarir, a “shining golden city” teeming with magic and mystery and the type of history that you never learn in school.
According to a new dev blog, Tarir is also home to the Exalted, a race of servants that were created as part of the dragon Glint’s desire to make the world safer. The Exalted — which come in builder, soldier, and mage varieties — have awoken after a long rest to rally to the defense of the world against the elder dragons.
“As beings of pure eldritch energy, the Exalted have a much more advanced facility with magic than their former fleshy selves ever did,” the devs posted. “They are also effectively immortal — they do not age and are extremely durable, though they can still be killed by violence or by draining their essential magic.”
