Hylek Turret

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Hylek Turrets are objects that can be used by players as environmental weapons and an important part of the event, Defeat Tequatl the Sunless. Properly using and defending the turrets is vital to success as they're the only way to remove stacks of the Hardened Scales effect that Tequatl the Sunless acquires over the encounter. They're also capable of clearing out the AoE fields created by Tequatl's Fingers and providing powerful AoE buffs to allies. Players can use Repair Hammers obtained from the Box of Repair Hammers to fully heal a damaged turret, but if one is destroyed it will automatically respawn after a few seconds.
