Some friends and I took up Mad King Thorn on his challenge, and entered the Mad Realm.
The Aetherblade danger to Lion’s Arch was closer than I ever expected. After Mai Trin’s escape, the lionguards discovered one of their lairs. It’s located within the city itself, under the waterfall at Diverse Ledges. Along with Kiel, I traveled to the retreat with my friends to capture Mai Trin for her treachery.
As the Molten Alliance increased their attacks, the Vigil were able to hone in on their weapon testing facilities. I spoke with Warmaster Uma Threshgrowl outside the entrance, and learned that both Rox and Braham were waiting inside for backup. So along with four other eager adventurers, we joined forces and descended into the Molten Facility.
It looked as if we reached a dead-end, but before Braham had a chance to pick a fight with a rocky wall, Rox intervened. Due to her experience working in a mine, she was able to operate some abandoned dredge drilling machinery. Just then, a flame portal formed behind us. The drilling alerted them to our presence. We fought them off while Rox finished getting the device started.
