  • This hero challenge can be blocked by the
    Event boss (tango icon).png
    Clear out Balthazar's temple (80) event which spawns a powerful Champion Avatar of Balthazar, requiring many people to complete it. If the event is ongoing, then Exalted Markings Mastery or a mesmer portal will be needed in order to enter as vines will block the way in otherwise. If it is not up, simply just walk right on in.
  • Even though there appears to be fire burning on the hero point, it actually does no damage at all. You can easily avoid fighting the boss by using stealth skills like Shadow Refuge or Sneak Gyro and channel the hero challenge in stealth.
