Captain Ashym

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Captain Ashym is a legendary boss found at the end of the Urban Battlegrounds Fractal. He will have a permanent protection boon on him and gains a permanent retaliation boon as the fight progresses. He will occasionally summon a Veteran Ascalonian Squire, which will constantly grant might to Ashym, up to a stack of 20. At some points, Ashym will swap his sword for a staff, using powerful fire attunement-based spells, before switching back. Defeating Ashym will complete the fractal.

Notes[edit]

  • One of the possible land transformations from the Endless Fractal Tonic.
  • It's possibly to negate the effect of retaliation by walking away from him to about 1500 units and then returning to combat range.
  • Captain Ashym has a 50 range diameter hitbox, which is considered small.
