General[edit]

Shattered Observatory[edit]
  • A balance pass has been completed on all tiers of Shattered Observatory. Challenge Mode is unaffected by this change.
  • Loot chests have been added to the Skorvald the Shattered and Viirastra encounters.
  • Fixed an issue in which Arkk's solar-bloom phase would happen at inconsistent points in the encounter. The phase now always occurs at 80%, 50%, and 30% health, and no longer happens on a timer.
  • Fixed an issue in which the platforms in the Arkk encounter would not begin their rotational turn-off sequence.
  • Fixed an issue in the final phase in which the platforms in the Arkk encounter would continue their rotational turn-off sequence while solar blooms were active.
  • Fixed an issue in which Arkk would begin assaulting players with attacks after a failed solar-bloom phase.

  • Lowered the eyeball effect for the final boss's look-away mechanic.

WvW[edit]

  • Participation now always takes 15 minutes to decay no matter how much participation you have earned. This means that decaying at an earlier tier is no longer faster than decaying at a later tier.
  • The participation bar has been changed to always display how much time is left until it will start to decay. Previously, only the grace time of 90 seconds was shown. Now it will always show the grace time. The bar will be green if your grace time is above 90 seconds, yellow if your grace time is 90 seconds or less, and red if you are decaying.
