Dragon Bash[edit]

It's time for Dragon Bash! It wouldn't be a proper celebration without your attendance. Join me in Hoelbrak for another moot for the ages! There will be tests of strength, racing, food, song, and most importantly—ale.

I'll see you there. Unless, of course, you don't enjoy fun.

    • Dragon Bash Rally: Speed around Hoelbrak in a new mounted race, the Dragon Bash Rally.

  • Complete daily festival achievements to earn the Dragon Basher daily achievement, contributing to the Party Commander achievement, which rewards your choice of holographic replica weapons based on the weapons wielded by a famous hero!
  • Earn the official treat of Dragon Bash, zhaitaffy, to trade for festival prizes from vendors or craft new festive decorations for your guild hall. Be sure to save a few pieces to enjoy!
  • Share in the celebration with new Dragon Bash reward tracks in PvP and WvW.

     Elixir Gun
    Fumigate.png
     Fumigate: Fixed a bug that caused this skill to cleanse conditions from allies at a range of 600 while attacking at a range of 450. It will now attack enemies and cleanse allies at a range of 600. Cleaned up the visual effect to better line up with the increased attack range.

Thief[edit]

Skyscale[edit]

  • The throw and catch speeds have been reduced in all three levels of the "Play catch with your skyscale" activity in the Troublesome Skyscales collection achievement.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented players from crafting the Extra-Pungent Skyscale Treat after unlocking the recipe.

Update - June 11, 2019[edit]

Destabilized Magic[edit]

The Mystic Forge skritt want to help defeat Qadim by providing adventurers with new "shinies," helping them look their best while battling this dangerous foe. Of course, nothing in life is ever free. Qadim's destabilization of magic has resulted in daily ley-line nodes briefly forming near the remnants of world bosses. Gather condensed ley-line essence from these nodes, along with a few other materials, and combine them in the Mystic Forge to create these shiny new weapons.

Living World[edit]

Skyscale[edit]

  • Improved behavior when mounting the skyscale in midair after using updrafts and other traversal abilities.
  • The skyscale will no longer enter the wall-cling state when hitting a wall if it is descending using the Mount Ability 2 key.
  • Fixed a bug in which the skyscale could continue playing its wall-cling animation after using a waypoint.
  • Fixed a bug in which the skyscale's energy-gain rate could be higher than intended after mounting in midair.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented skyscales from blinking.

Bug Fixes[edit]

  • War Eternal: Fixed an issue in which Aurene would fail to appear at the beginning of the Descent instance for some players.

World Polish[edit]

General[edit]

  • The Mute Player Alerts sound option will now mute the alert chime accompanying some targeted skills (mostly found in raids and story instances) and the alert chime that accompanies the application of many special action skills.

Raids[edit]

The Hidden City of Ahdashim[edit]

After the events in the Mystic Forge, Qadim has returned home to the Hidden City of Ahdashim to usurp a great power. Find the Key and the cardinals for guidance into the hallowed city walls, and save not just the djinn but the entire world from Qadim's master scheme.

Items[edit]

  • A new item, the Spirit Banner, is available from the Mystic Forge in exchange for 50 Spirit Shards.
  • Various WvW blueprint denominations have been removed from the Mystic Forge, as those multiples were made obsolete by the ability to select how many players wish to purchase.
  • Fixed a bug in which some ascended raid reward containers did not stack.
  • Fixed a bug in which Exquisite Serpentite Jewels did not have attribute text.
