Guild Wars 2 Lost Shores

Okay, let’s get this out of the way first: the enemy of the Lost Shores event is, in fact, giant enemy crabs.

Well, not exactly. But they may as well be: they swarm out of the sea, as big as houses, scuttling like nobody’s business and trying to stomp you into the dirt. They’re called the karka, and they want to move into Lion’s Arch and set up a new home there. Over the corpses of you and your friends.
