Basic Info
Campaign: Prophecies
Type: Town
Part of: Kryta
North Kryta Province, Lion's Gate


The seat of power in Kryta, Lion's Arch housed the royal palace of King Doric and his line until after the last Guild War. Now, the White Mantle run the city. The old buildings have all been razed, making space for barracks and more practical structures.

The scenery within Lion's Arch is quite impressive, most notably the large rocks and plateaus that can be seen from the beach and docks, and the lion statue above the Crafter's Corner.

Getting there

Lion's Arch is the port for Prophecies, allowing characters from Prophecies to reach the other campaigns and vice-versa; how you arrive the first time depends on your character's starting campaign.

  • A few of the NPCs in town have names reminiscent to Star Wars characters. (Lionguard Bedo, Len Caldoron, to name a couple)
