4 Heritage Pauldrons

In some systems, the underside of this piece of armor will not colorize the base red colors when equipped by a male norn, except while underwater.

5 Lionguard Cloth Footguards

  • The blood trails on the Bloody medium chest doesn't show up well, if at all, on Charr characters.
8 Nightfury (heavy)

2 Plate of Jerk Poultry

The item has a crafting material tag, despite not being used in any recipes.

3 Roasted Meaty Sandwich

A stack of this item will read "Sandwichs" instead of "Sandwiches".

Miniatures[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 Mini Ascalonian Mage

The model for this miniature uses the primitive armor set, which was given a different appearance at a later date. As a result, the miniature's inventory icon does not match the miniature's appearance.

2 Mini Keep Construct

Might be gathered from Siege Chest in place of a unique drop.

3 Mini Mursaat Overseer

Miniature does not appear properly in the preview screen or while in use. It does appear after moving/following the player.

4 Mini Wrathbringer

This mini carries a misplaced dredge weapon on its feet.

5 Miniature
  • Selecting a stack of identical minis and adding them to the wardrobe destroys the entire stack instead of just one.
  • Miniatures are not saved properly for all accounts, and sometimes unselected after a loading screen.

Gem Store[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 Bank Tab Expansion

You can purchase more bank expansion tabs than the account limit (16 expansions) when buying tabs through the Gem Store. These are unusable if you have 17 bank tabs. There is no in-game warning.

2 Branded Wing Glider

Has two dye channels, but dyeing the glider does not affect the original colors.

3 Flute
  • The flute cannot be played underwater — you are given five empty slots and Return, although your utility and profession mechanic skills remain.
  • After a transform effect expires, e.g. when Mist Form ends, your skill bar will be replaced with 5 empty weapon slots; you can requip or swap weapons to fix this.
4 Gem Store

Sometimes purchases will not be immediately delivered via mail; if this happens, deleting 1-2 existing messages often resolves the issue.

5 Mini Red Spark

If you are crafting The Dreamer, but have not completed the entire quest chain and obtained the Mini Red Spark, Evon Gnashblade will not prompt the relevant dialogue for the legendary collection.

6 Replica Job-o-Tron Backpack

As of November 4, 2014 update, Job-o-Tron's dialog box renders out of depth from a distance when Stereoscopic Rendering is enabled. [verification requested]

Locations[edit]

Zones[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 Grothmar Valley

Khan-Ur's Gauntlet Vista does not count for Daily Grothmar Valley Vista Viewer.

2 Lake Doric

When the last area needed for world completion is discovered, a completion for the original unreleased Lake Doric map may also be received, with a reward of one Transmutation Charge or Black Lion Key and 8,001 experience points. This has been observed when completing multiple maps.

3 Mount Maelstrom

This zone does not give a mail message from the Tyrian Explorers Society upon completing the map. Rewards are unaffected.

4 Southsun Cove

Some background sound effects are not muted completely while Guild Wars 2 is in the background even while using the related sound option.

Areas[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 Astrozintli Forelands

Some merchants are found dead and cannot be revived conventionally. Battle Standard or Glyph of Renewal must be used to revive dead merchants by the crafting stations.

2 Chak Stronghold

Rarely, a Thundershrimp will spawn on the ground next to the entrance to the underwater tunnel.

3 Commodore's Quarter
  • Sometimes Marcello DiGiacomo's will take out his instrument and start playing and singing. The audio from this often overlap with his ambient dialogue.
4 Deepstone Fractal

In the chasm room, one of the orbs of light may not appear as activated in the user interface. The room will complete without it and this has no effect on the rest of the fractal.

5 Dostoev Sky Peak

The ceiling chains intended to open the door on the way to the vista may not be interactable despite the cog icon. If this happens, the door can be jumped over from above and slightly down the ramp.

6 Fionnghuala Scratch

The skritt merchant can apparently be killed. He does not respawn.

7 Fort Salma

Above where a well has fallen into the collapsed ground, there is a circle of water now floating inside a tree.

8 Fort Trinity

The Priory Explorer uses a human female model but a male asura voice.

9 Mechanisms of Production

The Elite Dredge Resonator doesn't always leave the scene to report to General Zadorojny. In this case he is standing there as an ally.

10 Mellaggan's Grotto

The waypoint doesn't seem to appear if the Prevent krait from kidnapping Okarinoo quaggans event is active.

11 Pain Cliffs

If doing on Infantile, be careful around the checkpoint right before the final zone. Players have been trapped in the rainbow clouds after activating it, type /gg in chat to respawn.


Lag may cause traps to knock characters onto the opposite side where they are not supposed to be. This may cause issues with progression and force the character to respawn by dying to additional trap damage.

12 Phloem Meander

The waypoint at the Ooze Font has no name ingame.

13 Solid Ocean Fractal

It has been noted that sometimes you cannot hear and/or see the boss's laser attack; It can be safely timed based on the skull's disappearance.

14 Storm Top

Sometimes Area 9 will fail to trigger in the Baby's Second Adventure achievement.

15 Swampland Fractal
  • Received the achievement the moment the passage to the bosses opened up.
  • Reported that the achievement is only updated if the entire party succeeds in the challenge.
16 Thaumanova Reactor Fractal

The lines "Everybody you saved..." and "This is it!..." are played twice at the same time, with the first simply being just "Dessa".

17 Uncategorized Fractal
  • Sometimes when you fall you will land in a barren area. There are no monsters here and you will not take fall damage from the long fall. The only ways to get out is by going back to the Lab by teleporting or your group completing the Fractal, rejoin the party, or use the resign commands (/resign, /qq, /gg, etc)
  • For some reason, automatically during the jumping sections of the Fractal, Guardian's Aegis is randomly removed with a "block" message, and multiple "Miss" messages appear after. These disappear when the jumping section is finished.

Dungeons[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 Ascalonian Catacombs (explorable)
  • Detha Tremblebones will occasionally not trigger the flooded temple event required to progress the dungeon. As a workaround, players can lure Gravelings into the room and have them kill her. Upon revival, Detha will proceed with the event as intended.
  • Also in Detha's path, when you get to the Ghost Eater in the Hall of Champions, the boss may reset its original position to the corner of the event area, thus, not allowing you to use traps East and North since it will go out of combat and regenerate it's health as soon as you try to lure it to these other two traps.
  • In Tzark's path, occasionally after killing the burrows in the Hall of Champions the passage to Colossus Rumblus will fail to open, making it impossible to finish the dungeon. This may be caused by Warmaster Grast being dead when the event is supposed to trigger.
2 Caudecus's Manor (explorable)

There is currently a bug in Path 1 where there's a chance to not receive the dungeon completion reward after defeating Frost.

3 Champion Icebrood Goliath

Occasionally, Icebrood Goliaths will use ogre shouts upon aggro, deaggro, and death.

4 Citadel of Flame (story)

Although Gaheron's health resets, his phase does not if you wipe and have to waypoint.

5 Crucible of Eternity (explorable)

At times the advanced golem (Mark T-B34RC3) may not changed from Friendly to Hostile.

6 Deepstone Fractal

In the chasm room, one of the orbs of light may not appear as activated in the user interface. The room will complete without it and this has no effect on the rest of the fractal.

7 Farnaz, High Priestess of Lyssa

Farnaz may not spawn if Whispers Agent died during her dialogue or something similar. To prevent it, use stealth to skip spiders or lose aggro before approaching the statue. There is no known fix.

8 Fractals of the Mists

The recommended agony resistance values shown in-game can vary by ±1 from the ones shown here, depending on your character's max HP.

9 Hirvela the Lost

Hirvela's Transform ability will sometimes not complete the animation from being attacked, making him much easier than intended.

10 Honor's Voice

Honor's Voice will sometimes run away when not using a skill.

11 King Adelbern

When attempting to Launch.png Launch him, Adelbern will be knocked down instead of taking Defiance Bar Damage. This is due to his old fight mechanic, where players used stones to interrupt him while bypassing his Defiance.

12 Kudu's Power Suit

This creature is flagged as a 'bandit', will be affected by Outlaw slaying sigils and potions, and will have bandit drops such as Broken Lockpicks and Encoded Orders

13 Kulag the Fallen

Kulag will sometimes fixate on one player for the fight and will stop attacking if said player stands out of Kulag's line of sight, forcing him to be an easy target.

14 Mechanisms of Production

The Elite Dredge Resonator doesn't always leave the scene to report to General Zadorojny. In this case he is standing there as an ally.

15 Phloem Meander

The waypoint at the Ooze Font has no name ingame.

16 Solid Ocean Fractal

It has been noted that sometimes you cannot hear and/or see the boss's laser attack; It can be safely timed based on the skull's disappearance.

17 Sorrow's Embrace (explorable)

Before players kill Kreutzerova, they need to make sure that Rasolov is alive; and after the kill be sure to wait for the conversation between him and another dredge. Players must wait until the objective changes to listing the other 4 foremen health bars before proceeding further to kill them, otherwise the dungeon may bug and forcing them to restart, as the NPC will not move and therefore cannot open the gate.


War Minister Shukov will occasionally bug out and not summon his golems.

18 Sparki

If Sparki is interrupted while casting her Ground Bloom skill, the interrupt animation will play, but the damage from the skill will stay for an additional few seconds.

19 Super Adventure Box
  • Occasionally, playing Tribulation mode before Normal mode will cause Glorious chests to not appear in Normal mode. To avoid this, it is recommended to complete Normal mode before Tribulation mode each day.
  • Progression in the Baby's First Super Adventure achievement (related to the infantile mode) is erroneously granted in the normal mode at certain locations.
  • If a player leaves during a boss fight, the camera will be locked in the same position, making it impossible to zoom in or zoom out. This can be avoided by waiting to move to the next area or moving outside of the boss arena in some way before leaving. To fix this, players can revisit any boss that zooms out the camera to force it to reset, like the bosses inside the Box itself. Logging out to the desktop and back in will also solve the issue. (In the King Frog area your camera is reset on the far right center corner on the 2 stacked rocks.)
  • Activating a rainbow path from an odd angle can hold you in place and stop you from moving. If this happens, try digging up a bunny so you could respawn to the last checkpoint. Alternative you can just write /gg in the chat.
  • Falling from a height onto a bouncy surface (e.g. a mushroom) and not jumping can make the player character appear to be lying face down for a few minutes, nothing changes apart from the appearance, you can play normally but will be jumping and attacking while only seeing yourself lying down.
  • Zones are only unlocked per character and are not account bound.
20 Swampland Fractal
  • Received the achievement the moment the passage to the bosses opened up.
  • Reported that the achievement is only updated if the entire party succeeds in the challenge.
21 Thaumanova Reactor Fractal

The lines "Everybody you saved..." and "This is it!..." are played twice at the same time, with the first simply being just "Dessa".

22 The Ruined City of Arah (explorable)

If the party wipes against Alphard, a bone wall will appear at the entrance to the boss room, preventing reentry. The bone wall will disappear if the party wipes a second time, such as to the mines and Inquest/Dominated Risen in the previous room.


The floating Vulture Raptor seen in the explorable mode.
  • A Vulture Raptor can be found levitating in the air in one of the areas of this map.
  • After reviving at a waypoint players sometimes lose all their skills if they have been hit by tar while they died. This can be fixed if you relog your character.
  • The seer path may bug sometimes at lupicus, lupicus will just sit at his starting position and wont become hostile. The cause is unknown but in order to fix it you will have to restart the dungeon.
  • The seer path may also bug at the fight with Simi, the priestess of Dwayna. When this happens, she will hide every time her health reaches 50%, regardless of time spent gathering the sparks or fighting her.
  • Lupicus can bug on path three and path four if the second of the shining orb of light doors is opened before the path is officially started, which is an issue if using skips to get past earlier bosses. he will remain green and not react in any way, blocking progress.
  • Lupicus can become stuck in the wall of his arena if he retreats backwards into it. This is a common strategy, but it may also cause Lupicus to lose any de-aggro range, and chase players out of the arena and vast distances beyond, while still only being able to move along the edge of the path as he is inside the wall.
  • In path 4, the Champion Risen Knight can move through floors and walls, and has no de-aggro range, if a skip is used to get past him. he will eventually appear through a wall at the party's location, no matter how far they have gone.
  • After the cave in Mursaat path has been traversed once, the turret at the end of the cave will deal lethal damage to any players who attempt to cross it again. If the party wipes and returns to the dungeon entrance before defeating the Berserker Abomination, this is a progress-blocking bug and the dungeon must be restarted. Or just use the hole on the left right before the turret.
  • The bombs may not explode at the start of the Seer path blocking progress.
23 Twilight Arbor (story)

Sometimes waypoints do not appear until after you've completed the dungeons.


If you kill the second Elite just before the Spell Blossoms event too quickly, the Spell Blossoms event can fail to start.

24 Uncategorized Fractal
  • Sometimes when you fall you will land in a barren area. There are no monsters here and you will not take fall damage from the long fall. The only ways to get out is by going back to the Lab by teleporting or your group completing the Fractal, rejoin the party, or use the resign commands (/resign, /qq, /gg, etc)
  • For some reason, automatically during the jumping sections of the Fractal, Guardian's Aegis is randomly removed with a "block" message, and multiple "Miss" messages appear after. These disappear when the jumping section is finished.
25 Vallog

Despite being a male centaur, Vallog uses a female centaur voice in combat.

Mini-dungeons[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 Font of Rhand
  • Occasionally the ice wall behind the veteran Flame Legion foe in room 1 will not break when the foe is killed. He should respawn though, giving you another opportunity to break it.
  • You cannot place the Statue Head into the mortar in room 2A
    • Breaking through the stone wall may stop working after losing control of the portal to the mini-dungeon, thus hindering you from getting another sword if you lose it.
  • Sometimes the chains to open the door in room 2B don't work.
  • When an engineer picks up the sword and goes underwater it will disappear instead of giving the bundles underwater skills.
  • When using the mesmer skill Imminent Voyage it is possible to get stuck behind the walls.
2 Forsaken Fortune

The torch objects at the start of the area are shown as "Unknown".

She was originally introduced as Kouris. Since the Lion's Arch Reborn release, her name has been incorrectly listed as Activity Director Cassi, a historical NPC.

2 Axel Trueshot

Even if the player isn't a member of the Order of Whispers, they will still say "Glad a fellow Whispers agent made it..."

3 Aymber Blastrock

Aymber may indicate she is ready to begin an event before she actually offers it.

4 Azalus Poisontongue

Sometimes Azalus will actually die after Defeat Azalus Poisontongue and be unable to be revived.

5 Blane the Insane
  • Male charr will get the same dialogue as the male norn instead of the other race dialogue. After defeating him, then they will get the other race dialogue, but not the option to fight him again.
  • Female sylvari and asura will get the same dialogue as the female norn instead of the other race dialogue, too.
6 Champion Charr Igniter

The Champion Charr Igniter's Point Blank Area of Effect attack will continue to inflict Crippled.png Crippled and Damage players even if the champion has become friendly.

7 Champion Tower Lord

The Champion Tower Lord stuns, rather than dazes.

8 Crusader Foehunter

NPC is supposed to become a karma merchant after the event, but the interaction fails to bring up his dialogue

This NPC will occasionally freeze in place and prevent the meta event from progressing.

10 Ember Doomforge

During the personal story mission Minister's Defense, she has a different appearance.

11 Erracus the Wise

Blood Legion members see the same dialogue as Ash Legion members.

12 Evon Gnashblade

14 Explorer Jamsa Gemhunt

Players have the option to say "I am Priory. What are you studying?" whether they are in the Durmand Priory or not

15 Explorer Ket

Talking to Explorer Ket after her heart is complete allows players to ask how to help again, but contains an additional way to help which is not listed when talking to her before completing the heart.

16 Faint Ghostnight

Clicking "Okay." in the dialogue above will not end the conversation, but continue with the default dialogue.

17 Flame Legion Blademaster

Flame Legion Blademasters appear to have a bugged collision hitbox when using the skill Shield Bash. Even if they're close enough to stun an enemy, Blademasters will often slide in place for a few seconds before they actually execute the stun. Aside from this, they can also easily get stuck on impassable objects or terrain due to the skill's leap mechanic. Flame Legion Bladestorms suffer from a similar problem.

18 Flame Legion Bladestorm
  • Flame Legion Bladestorms appear to have a bugged collision hitbox when using their Charge skill, which is identical to Rush. Even if they're close enough to strike an enemy, Bladestorms will often run in place for a few seconds before they actually execute the attack. Aside from this, they can also easily get stuck on impassable objects or terrain due to the skill's leap mechanic. Flame Legion Blademasters suffer from a similar problem.
  • They have "AoE Attacks" listed as an ability, but their attacks actually cleave rather than dealing damage in an area of effect.
  • They have "Whirls" listed as an ability, but they actually sprint with a skill similar to Rush rather than whirl with a skill like Whirlwind Attack.

20 Flame Legion Shaman

21 Flame Legion Smoke Shaman

Flame Legion Smoke Shamans have "Stealths Allies" listed as an ability, but only their veteran counterparts can actually grant stealth.

22 Gaerra Farshot

At the end of the event an Iron Legion Legionnaire speaks a line that was definitely meant for her, as the legionnaire is male and the same voice was previously heard from her.

23 Gon Rageshot

The recipe for Iron Legion's Pauldrons is missing from his inventory.

24 Havroun Weibe

Weibe oddly summons Krait Damoss and Veteran Krait Nimross instead of minions.

25 Kailani the Foolhardy

She currently offers this to anyone, even if they don't have Heart of Thorns.

26 Kristyna Sohnstag

If she moves during speech, she will cut herself short and repeat the same line. This is most common with the "Take heed!" line due to its length.

27 Legionnaire Slashclaw
  • If Legionnaire Slashclaw, the Iron Legion Marksman, or the Ash Legion Spy die on their way to the northern entrance of Hunter's Gorge, it will cause Maybri Shadowstalker to get stuck outside, blocking event progress.
  • Sometimes Legionnaire Slashclaw and her entourage will make it to Hunter's Gorge but get stuck before they're able to start the event Destroy Foulbear Kraal before the ogres can rally, blocking event progress.
28 Lionguard (speed boons)

Despite having a female model, this NPC speaks with a male voice.

29 Lionguard Auda

Once defeated, she might disappear, be stuck on top of a turret, or only have the "greet" option, all of which makes her impossible to talk to.

30 Lionguard Cern

Dialogue is the same even after completing the renown heart.

31 Lionscout Tunnira
32 Maybri Shadowstalker
  • Maybri Shadowstalker will get stuck outside the northern entrance to Hunter's Gorge and block event progress if Legionnaire Slashclaw or the other charr that travel with her are killed on their way to Foulbear Kraal.
  • Sometimes Maybri Shadowstalker and her entourage will make it to Hunter's Gorge but get stuck before they're able to start the event Destroy Foulbear Kraal before the ogres can rally, blocking event progress.
33 Meat Vendor

The vendor neither hands out meat bundles nor sells food

34 Melinda Fairmoor

This NPC has gotten her name mixed with Brewmaster Burna

35 Milton Moriarity

Uses the karma merchant indicator, but only sells for gold.

36 Munghal

Interacting with him triggers merchant responses instead.

37 Nollarr

His armor changes completely after he is defeated.

38 Organizer Aerixx

When players choose the line "Count me in. Hand over that Pigment Transmogrifier." when talking to him, he will equip the transmogrifier himself instead giving it to the players. He will then use it to attack creatures that may come nearby, like spiders.

39 Passed Out Warrior During
Event shield (tango icon).png
Defend Kevach's lodge from attacking wurms, some Passed Out Warriors will get up to help with the fight, but the Zs around their head will not disappear.
40 Peacemaker Klodi

Peacemaker Klodi can sometimes be found dead inside a tent next to her normal location. Players cannot get close enough to revive her, so they will be unable to access the karma items should this occur.

41 Priory Engineer

Has a Talk prompt but no dialogue.

42 Prisoner 1141

This bounty will often fail to start when choosing the combat option.

43 Professor Maciver

Sometimes players will not be able to talk to him, and he will only greet them with generic quotes. This can be fixed by completing Escort the Lionguard caravan to Broken Beacon, as he can be talked to after this event, and during the subsequent events.

44 Rakona

On a female player character, the adventure and profit dialogue options redirecting to booze point to the male oriented dialogue

45 Samona Ironclaw

Samona Ironclaw may not appear in any more personal story missions after you recruit her for your warband.

Clicking "Okay." in the dialogue above will not end the conversation but continue with the default dialogue.

47 Scholar Sharpslash

He is a karma merchant before quest completion, simply bring him a weapon from the crates.

48 Sera Singeaxe

The dialogue on completion of this scout's heart is the wrong one. It is that of Explorer Rowena.

49 Sotzz the Scallywag

This NPC was not updated after Defiance bars were introduced, making it impossible to push him out of his field, thus making it impossible to complete his mechanic, since the Sotzz won't follow players outside of his field if they move far away.

50 Tiga Fierceblade

The karma armor Tiga sells has flavor text which refers to Zalvax Brokenclaw, a nearby heart vendor.

51 Valdi the Lush

His dialogue in Divinity Reach is identical to to Uwe Roaldson's dialogue. It makes sense for Uwe to mention a brother as he has one, but not for Valdi who doesn't have one.

52 Ville

Ville has dialogue very similar, but not identical, to Lodge Keeper Kevach, and his dialogue is dependent on the status of Kevach's renown heart. On completion of that heart, Ville offers karma vendor services like Kevach.

53 Vincere Shieldstep

He has the wrong model in Dragon's Stand.

54 Warmaster Leddron

Warmaster Leddron and the rest of the Pact team can sometimes get stuck outside of Zho'qafa Catacombs and block event progress.

Sometimes the final conversation with Queen Nadijeh doesn't start, leaving the NPCs there just standing. However, after few seconds the event will complete.

2 Assassinate the separatist instigator

Sometimes the champion fails to lose Determined.png Determined when the event starts and will block progress.

3 Assault Foulbear Kraal by killing its leaders before the ogres can rally

Maybri Shadowstalker will get stuck outside the northern entrance to Hunter's Gorge and block this event from starting if Legionnaire Slashclaw or the other charr that travel with her are killed on their way to Foulbear Kraal.

4 Assault Kingsgate and drive the centaurs back before they can rally their forces

The event may stall for several minutes if any centaurs with Determined effect did not run away from the previous event due to getting hit by another creature on land, causing Captain Edwards to catch up to the centaur and attack endlessly. The stalled event will eventually cancel and automatically advance to the last event before the Determined effect on the centaur expires.

5 Assault on Svanir's Dome

The meta event will sometimes bug out during "The lionguard are striking at the heart of the svanir settlement"and block progress.

6 Assault the Mordant Crescent's encampment before reinforcements arrive

The event can get stuck as Champion Hierarch Alu may be stuck in a friendly state with no interaction and empty progress bar and Second Lieutenant Sefu cannot be talked to.

7 Assist Legionnaire Burnwhite in repairing the Iron Barracuda

Legionnaire Burnwhite continues to repair the Iron Barracuda even while defeated.

8 Bashing Bauxite Alchemicals

If a Mark I Repair Golemite begins to repair a disabled Inquest Perimeter Defense Cannon, you must allow it to complete the repairs before killing it. If the golemite is killed mid-repair and the semi-repaired cannon is attacked, that cannon stops taking damage at the 1% mark and can't be taken down again. The event fails because the next step won't begin unless all cannons are eliminated.

9 Break the dredge siege of Mantelet Refuge

One of the siege mortars may not despawn correctly after being destroyed, leaving this event incompletable.

10 Break the morale of the attacking harpies and defend the mortars
  • When a mortar is destroyed and repaired, its hitpoints will become invisible to the player. This makes it harder to know how much they are already damaged the next time the event runs.
  • At the end of the event an Iron Legion Legionnaire speaks a line with Gaerra Farshot's voice
11 Capture the tower

Some towers do not count for the daily Tower Capturer achievement

12 Cathedral of Eternal Radiance (meta event)

The repair of the cannon shield can get frozen, causing the meta event to be unable to be completed.

13 Clear ettins from Gort's Pit for Gort

Occasionally Gort's Treasure chest will already be open upon completion. To fix this simply log out to the character select menu, and then back in again.

14 Clear out the Mordrem threat

Sometimes the Mordrem won't spawn, making the event impossible to complete.

15 Clear out the Mordrem threat (Far Silverwastes)

Players who only defeated the last remaining boss after stumbling upon the event are not awarded any event contribution.

16 Clear the lake of tar elementals
  • The Flame Legion Shaman was scaled down to a veteran, however he still appears as a champion at the start of the event chain.
  • This event frequently stops working soon after a server reset and is not available until the next reset. The lake is full of tar but there are no elementals. This blocks the follow-on events.
17 Clear the poisonous urchins from Lashoosh

There have been several reports of this event bugging and not restarting properly.

18 Coat yourself in Mordrem spores to baffle Mordrem defenses and gather samples from the vine chambers

Sometimes very few Mordrem Thrashers will appear, creating a limited number of opportunities for players to receive the effect to successfully complete the event.

19 Collect griffon feathers for Kailani's flying machine

Speaking to Kailani after the event is completed and when she returns to her flying machine and starts to hammer will permanently break this event.

20 Collect scrap metal to help Ballistician Dexa build her siege weapon

Some scrap metals function like a bundle rather than a trophy and cannot be collected by Ballistician Dexa.

21 Defeat Auran the Golden Ooze to free Sage Essher

Sometimes Auran the Golden Ooze is credited with saying line "Defeat those oozelings before the big one has a chance to heal", instead of Sage Essher.

22 Defeat Mayatl the Fierce

If spawned first thing in the morning while the village is overrun by Mordrem, the event may start, but Mayatl does not appear. This permanently bugs the event for the map instance.

23 Defeat Overseer Rannik and rescue Adanich

Overseer Rannik's Heavy Aura can be transferred with skills that transfer conditions, which renders the fight trivial due to its immense damage.

24 Defeat Potoni the Massive to prove your worth

Defeating Potoni does not award the Potoni Masher achievement for some players. Being the player to activate the challenge, and using the bouncing mushroom to go back up to his platform during the fight may trigger credit for this achievement.

25 Defeat Reidarr Rockcrusher to calm him down

If you kill Reidarr in the event too fast, Explorer Rivera will have a [merchant] tag next to his name, and the coin icon over his head as if he were a merchant, but he will not change his dialog.

26 Defeat Tequatl the Sunless
  • Foes are not supposed to drop loot. However, Risen Grubs that spawn at the northern battery and Risen summoned by Risen Krait Hypnosses will all drop loot.
  • Sometimes Risen Land Mines won't despawn when the event restarts.
27 Defeat Utcua

Sometimes Utcua will remain dead instead of resetting, making this challenge impossible to complete until a server reset.

28 Defeat Vollym, champion of the battle pit

Sometimes Vollym will become invulnerable for longer than the time allowed to fight him.


If you defeat him too quickly, the event may end, bypassing the stages and triggering failure dialogue.

29 Defeat a Ghost Eater and a Mordant Crescent Intimidator

Players without this story chapter active will still see the event name but will be unable to contribute and shall not see a map marker

30 Defeat the Centaur Chief

The Centaur Chief offers his hero challenge event in Green Alpine Borderlands and Blue Alpine Borderlands, rewarding the Red Borderlands' northeast hero challenge if completed.

31 Defeat the Dragon shamans to destroy their totem before Svanir reinforcements arrive
  • If the event Svanir Shaman have corrupted members of the Vigil assault force occurs, the Vigil NPCs that are turned into icebrood will remain as icebrood with their new names even when Breaking the Ice meta event restarts. This seems to remain in effect until the map ends.
  • If doing Living World 2 story step Summit Invitations during the event, the Dragon Totem will be clickable before the story updates. Wait until the story updates tell you to destroy the totem to click to destroy it, otherwise you will need to wait 15 minutes for it to respawn.
32 Defeat the Knight of Sorrows and Her Attendants

The taunting voice over is masculine, while Veteran Knight of Sorrows is a female.

33 Defeat the Risen Priestess of Dwayna

The event chain will stop progressing indefinitely if Historian Vermoth's health depletes from the remaining Risen attacks after defeating the Risen Priestess of Dwayna. Although Historian Vermoth's health slowly recovers, players must ensure any Risen on Historian Vermoth is killed before taking down the Risen Priestess of Dwayna.

34 Defeat the Spider Queen

The Spider Queen offers her hero challenge event in Blue Alpine Borderlands, rewarding the Green Borderlands' southern hero challenge if completed.

35 Defeat the amber head of the great jungle wurm
  • Although it rarely occurs, Plague Carrier Abomination may not drop Wurm Attractant field upon explode, causing delay for groups trying to get the effect.
  • Players affected by lag or network latency may be teleported inside Great Amber Jungle Wurm's stomach multiple times upon getting swallowed and not get ejected with the rest of the group, leaving affected players in the stomach to be digested.
  • Decapitating all the great jungle wurms in exactly the same time (within a few seconds of each other) will not stop the timer from the first phase, causing two timers to countdown and forcing event failure as the first timer runs out. To avoid this issue, ensure the great jungle wurms are decapitated at staggered times.
36 Defeat the cobalt head of the great jungle wurm

Decapitating all the great jungle wurms in exactly the same time (within a few seconds of each other) will not stop the timer from the first phase, causing two timers to countdown and forcing event failure as the first timer runs out. To avoid this issue, ensure the great jungle wurms are decapitated at staggered times.

37 Defeat the crimson head of the great jungle wurm

Decapitating all the great jungle wurms in exactly the same time (within a few seconds of each other) will not stop the timer from the first phase, causing two timers to countdown and forcing event failure as the first timer runs out. To avoid this issue, ensure the great jungle wurms are decapitated at staggered times.

38 Defeat the destroyer champion and the destroyer burrows

When hovering over the map, the event is instead titled "Defeat the champion corrupted destroyer."

39 Defeat the dredge commissar (Dredgehaunt Cliffs)

This event cannot be started if the In Pursuit of Knowledge meta becomes stalled. A stalled meta can be identified by the meta reading "The dredge and the Priory are competing for the center camps." without any active events at Fridgardr Lodge or Firebase Molek.

40 Defeat the giant Destroyer troll

There is a chance that the Giant Destroyer Troll will spawn at The Iron Veil frozen lake. If this occurs, there is no way to kill it because it will be permanently invulnerable. If this happens, let the troll reset and it will be killable again.

41 Defeat the giant beetle

Though rare, this event has failed to spawn despite T5+ Favor of the Zephyrites having been achieved in the map instance. No prompt appears across your screen and the event is absent.

42 Defeat the giant blue ooze

This event is currently bugged, and the giant blue ooze does not respawn when the event restarts.

43 Defeat the gold guzzler to find the remaining pieces of Sage Volaar

The Event is stuck when defeating the Gold Guzzler before Dawkkurra reached the location.

44 Defeat the misplaced steam ogre

Players affected by lag or network latency may be teleported in to the sky multiple times upon jumping into the center reactor room's hole before actually staying on the platform that holds the steam ogre.

45 Defeat the possessed statue of Dwayna

Historian Vermoth will disappear if his health gets depleted from any risen attacks after defeating the Statue of Dwayna, preventing players from buying karma armors, and leaving the temple improperly cleansed until reclaimed by Lieutenant Risen.

46 Defeat the three Drakkar Spurs champions

The event does not sometimes grant bonus rewards even if the three Drakkar champions were defeated within the time limit.

47 Defend Brokentooth Maw
  • Foes in the capture zone can continue to capture Brokentooth Maw even if players are also in the capture zone.
  • The color of the capture zone (blue/red) does not accurately reflect whether there are foes in the capture zone.
48 Defend Lorela from dredge while she gathers griffon eggs

This event sometimes stops working at the sixth egg and block progress.

49 Defend Mad Mardine's cows from harpies while he tests his invention

This event often gets stalled after a few cows have been launched, which prevents the cattlepult from becoming operational. If this happens, you can try guesting to a different server.

50 Defend Mepi from bandits

This event frequently stops working some variable time after a server reset and is not available until the next reset. It blocks any possibility of the associated events occurring.

51 Defend Skrilla while she searches for treasure

If no wurms spawn at any of Skrilla's digging spots, participation will not be granted by killing any other creature or collecting the treasure chests, and so the last chest will not spawn and event success rewards will not be given.

52 Defend Spirit Hunter Camp from ghostly invaders

This event always stops working soon after a server reset and is not available until the next reset.

53 Defend Steeleye Span's south wall
  • Foes sometimes teleport into the inner wall passage after being knocked down, and have to be killed from the inside
  • Ranged attacks can pass through some sections of the wall.
54 Defend Ulfred until he finds a location for his statue

Ulfred may not move from his spot near Adis once the event has started, thus preventing its completion.

55 Defend Yerkk while he isolates skritt for his IQ experiment

This event has a high chance to stall at the cavern entrance, breaking it and its chain until map expiration.

56 Defend miners and bring ore they mine to Foreman Agvior

This event frequently stops working soon after a server reset with Foreman Agvior hard at work doing nothing inside Molberia. He does sell the items he normally would. This event and its predecessor are not available until the next reset.

57 Defend the C.L.E.A.N. 5000 golem

Due to scaling issues, upscaled enemies with veteran ranks or higher are unable to drop loots or give experience points.

58 Defend the Pact team as they search Zho'qafa Catacombs for artifacts

If the Pact team gets attacked and downed by the Ooze and the Risen near the catacombs entrance before moving, the team will stall (even after reviving the Pact team), blocking the event progression indefinitely until the next game update or server maintenance.

59 Defend the Priory explorer as she purifies the spring at Weeping Glade

Despite the name of this event referring to the Weeping Glade, there is a a set of duplicate events in Fahautl Grounds with the same name and ally npc, with nearly identical text lines.


Despite the name of this event referring to a female NPC, occasionally a male NPC will offer the escort.

60 Defend the merchant caravan

Can get stuck and be impossible to complete, as spawns required to be defeated may not spawn at all.

61 Defend the repair efforts on the south wall

Sometimes Engineer Keenhammer will not finish repairing the wall, leaving the event uncompletable (and the waypoint contested).

62 Defend the siege devourer while it assists the troops

If the devourer is brought to 0 health it will not be defeated. Instead, enemies will become neutral towards it, and it will stay knocked down. It can be healed to full health and once fully healed, it will stand up after Sentinel Whiptail is defeated and then revived, from then on the devourer will attack anything that Sentinel Whiptail attacks, but the event will no longer advance and enemies will no longer attack the devourer, preventing completion of the meta-event and acquisition of the related trait.

63 Destroy Foulbear Kraal before the ogres can rally

Sometimes the Charr and Human NPCs will make it to Hunter's Gorge but get stuck before they're able to start this event, blocking progression.

64 Destroy tendrils and their source

If the tendril in the center is destroyed before killing all of the surrounding corrupted sylvari, the event stalls, preventing progress.

65 Destroy the Death-Branded Shatterer

The "Protect the remaining junundu: x/6" shows even if the junundu had died in the previous event.

66 Destroy the Risen Priest of Melandru

The Legendary Risen Priest of Melandru loses the ability to transform players into animals when this event has been repeated a certain number of times. This "counter" is reset whenever there is a game update or server maintenance.

67 Destroy the roadblock the bandits have constructed to stop Shaemoor traffic

This event frequently stops working after a server reset and is not available until the next reset.

68 Devouring the Brand

This meta event will often stall at any of the events involving the Siege Devourer as an ally and objective. At some point the devourer may become neutral to enemies and stop advancing, and Sentinel Whiptail will return to Brandwatch, making impossible to continue the meta event.

69 Drive off the dragon minions

Sometimes the Risen don't attack the Pact Cannon.

70 Drive the rogue bull back home, and fix any mayhem on the way

This event frequently stops working soon after a server reset and is not available until the next reset.

71 Escort Moa Trainer Kappa and her pygmy moas to Beetletun

This event frequently stops working at some time after a server reset and is not available until the next reset. It also blocks its precursor events from occurring.

72 Escort Scholar Didi to the signal flare site to summon her golem prototype for the assault on Arah

A Risen Rotmouth may spawn and hide under a crash site from See the Pact crash survivors safely to Meddler's Summit event, stalling Scholar Didi until players destroy it from behind the crash site.


Sometimes further waves of the Risen may not spawn if Scholar Didi is down.

73 Escort Warmaster Leddron and his team to Zho'qafa Catacombs

Sometimes the Pact team will get stuck outside of the catacombs when this event is completed, blocking event progression.

74 Escort and defend alliance workers sent to build a watchtower

This event will often stall. The workers players are supposed to protect will be nowhere to be seen.

75 Escort the C.L.E.A.N. 5000 golem while it absorbs clouds of chaos magic
  • Due to scaling issues, upscaled enemies with veteran ranks or higher are unable to drop loot or give experience points.
  • In unknown rare circumstances, C.L.E.A.N. 5000 and Rooba will not move from C.L.E.A.N. Station, forcing event failure as the time runs out.
76 Escort the Vigil to the Tower of Modius

Sometimes the Risen may slay the NPCs before the event can effectively start, permanently stalling event progression.

77 Escort the central invasion Pact squad to the Pact rally point at Triumph Plaza

The NPCs may occasionally stack and not advance after fighting ends. Normally this state clears if they aggro on something. As most of their path is in aggro range of normal (non-event) spawns, this is rarely a problem.

78 Escort the elite Whispers strike team to the secret Inquest base entrance

Enemies will frequently be stuck in the wall, and out of range of melee attacks. This will also cause the escort NPCs to chase after them into the terrain, resulting in significant loss of time as they attempt to kill the enemies, and dying repeatedly in the process.

79 Escort the iron shipment to Cowlfang's Star

This event cannot be completed. The NPCs will start the event, travel approximately halfway to their goal, turn around and return to their starting point. They will then apparently stay at that location until a server reset.

80 Escort the shaman to Doomlore Shrine

Shaman Brightblaze may stall at the beginning of the event and stay in place at the starting point. If this happens, get everyone out of the escort circle and the Shaman will become unstuck.

81 Escort troops to Follower's Bridge

Occasionally the NPCs will stop moving completely and endless waves of undead will approach.

82 Escort troops to the Eastern Colonnade camp
  • The risen will continuously respawn while all the troops are down, probably preventing small groups from completing the event.
  • The event won't start, Crusader Metalhorn and his troops being stuck in front of the portal between Malchor's Leap and Straits of Devastation.
83 Find and defeat Hiei Sharpblade

He is referred to in the event title as Hiei Sharpblade. However, the event boss bar (as well as Hiei himself) are labeled Hiei Quickedge.

84 Free an Order of Whispers agent from pirates

If Agent Cass is defeated during the event, she may refuse to move causing the event to fail.

85 Gather blueprints from dredge engineers or document barrels and return them to Oliver

Sometimes, Oliver spawns in the Durmand Priory camp at Seven Pines Waypoint, and does not move to the location during his event where he should be during said dynamic event. Also, he does not always have a dynamic event trophy item turn-in icon over his head. This makes him very hard to find. Look for him in the camp if he's not where he's supposed to be.

86 Gather dredge ore from the mine for Sven

This event frequently stops working very soon after a server reset and is not available until the next reset. It also blocks the other events in the series.

87 Get Warmaster Chan to Shank Anchorage before the troops' morale breaks
  • If the event fails, the risen will sometimes gather near Shank Anchorage and will not de-spawn.
  • On occasion, the event stops progressing causing the entire Gates of Arah event to stall. There are only two work-arounds:
    • Wait until the next time the server resets, i.e. after a game update or server maintenance.
    • Successfully lure a Champion Risen Giant from Craven Blight to the Pact force's location and allow this foe to deplete their morale.
88 Get an extinguisher from Engineer Kayle Brightshock and put out fires

Even though an extinguisher is required, it does no harm to the Embers. They must be killed normally, but be hit at least once with the extinguisher for their deaths to count.

89 Give alpine lilies to the militia captain before illness overtakes his soldiers
90 Harvest earth elemental lodestones for Seegor's brew

The earth elementals may spawn up trees or cliffs and become invulnerable.

91 Help Crusader Angaria signal reinforcements for the assault on Arah

Crusader Angaria does not activate the beacons after the second event instance or later until the next game update or server maintenance.

92 Help Explorer Jeppa recover lost supplies

At the end of the event, Explorer Jeppa may vanish before the next event can be triggered. This prevents progression and blocks the chain from resetting.


Explorer Jeppa might teleport to Awakened Garrison when downed. Healing Jeppa will get her to teleport back to her previous location.

93 Help Karris Quickcalm hunt for wurm eggs inside Wurm's Gullet

Cave wurm hatchlings will continue to drop wurm eggs and wurm nests will persist in the cave even after the event is finished.

94 Help Legionnaire Boneflayer crush the Renegades

The Veteran Renegade Charr General will initially spawn in the renegade camp, The Thunder Den, but will shortly teleport to Summit Peak. This will spawn a new copy of Legionnaire Kelith Boneflayer, who will teleport to The Thunder Den once the general is killed. Each time the event is completed, a new copy of Kelith will spawn - all of which will act in subsequent events. The current event's Kelith (the one with the shield icon over him) will have a helmet on, while the previous copies will not.

95 Help Lieutenant Fynn and Kor the Warcaller assault Sootpan Kraal

If the ogre beastmaster is not fought within the unwalled section of his camp (marked by the Ogre Flagstand), his health will frequently reset.

96 Help Lieutenant Fynn and Kor the Warcaller's assault on the Behemian Grand Kraal

If the ogre chieftain is not fought within the open space to the east of the Ogre Flagstand (near an Ogre House), his health will frequently reset.

97 Help Nia rescue Cymbel's hounds

If a player who has not discovered Cymbel's Rescue runs ahead to explore it after all remaining hounds are safe, but before Nia has reached her destination, she will act as though she has no hounds and will backtrack to rescue them again. (No more than three hounds will join you in this way.)

98 Help Pact Crusader Bodil find her missing companion, Alyxx

This event can often be encountered in a bugged state with Pact Crusader Bodil nowhere to be found.

99 Help Pepperseed deliver Zephyrite supplies to the Forge

Occasionally Sunflower will drop only 4 crates during the first phase, preventing completion of the achievement.

100 Help Talaith liberate the Soundless prisoners

This event frequently stalls soon after a server restart with Talaith at the start point for the event in The Rootangles but using the dialogue relevant to The Weeping Isle. Typically this will stay stalled until the next server restart.

101 Help Tromgi'gark and Wenski get their crate back home

This event is one that bugs regularly, as reported on the forums. If you revive the skritt, they make no effort to leave the bandit camp. They prefer to die repeatedly.

102 Help U.N.I.T. find and destroy the Inquest
  • If U.N.I.T skips the Inquest Assistant and the Mark II Golem and enters through the north door into the final room, and instead engages inquest inside the final room and enters though the east door, it proceeds to clear the room and free Wistt from his cell, but stays in combat mode as if the room is still not cleared, causing the event to not proceed to the final dialogue and progress to its final phase. If this happens you can unstick it yourself but getting UNIT killed. To do this, just kite in enemies near UNIT and he will attack them. You will need to get several. If you can get the Prototype Robot and 1 other, that will work.
  • It is possible to gain contribution for this dynamic event, for simply waiting at U.N.I.T's spawn point area.
103 Help cadets train junundu wurms and earn grade points by completing the training course

Occasionally, the Bonus Targets will fail to recognize attacks from your wurm and will not knock over, making it impossible to complete the Junundu Master Certification achievement. They may also fail to despawn after the event ends. Switching to a different map may help.

104 Help the Night warband reach Incendio Templum

This event can stall, preventing the progress of its meta event.

105 Help the Pact reach the Altar of Betrayal before their morale is depleted

When the South Reinforcement Group dies just before they enter the cave and are revived, they sometimes stop moving forward. The event description will say: "Revive the pact members. 7/7 pact members alive."

106 Help the Pact reach the graveyard outside Zaishen Antheneum

The event can be stuck with the pact blocked north of the waypoint. Fail the event to get it unbugged.

107 Help the Sentinels clear a path across Lake Desolann

Centurion Bloodfist occasionally gets stuck in the gates at the beginning of the event.

108 Help the Seraph retake their camp

It's possible that the event until daily reset never ends. That means endless respawning foes (~27 foes every minute).

109 Help the Wyld Hunt valiants clear undead from Treemarch Estuary

This event can stall for reasons unknown, leaving the event helper text without any visible NPCs active.

110 Help the militia soldiers fight off the icebrood

The follow-up event, Give alpine lilies to the militia captain before illness overtakes his soldiers, will not start if the Mercenary Captain is killed during this event, even if it is successful.

111 In Pursuit of Knowledge
112 Investigate the rumors of wurm activity in Challdar Gorges

Crusader Yipp will not build an Energy Probe if he immediately dies after completing the escort event, permanently halting all progress to spawn the great jungle wurms.

113 Investigate the rumors of wurm activity in Whisperwill Bogs

If the abomination dies due to a player attack, the white circle will not appear. A work around is to wait a few seconds instead, as it will explode by itself a few seconds after it appears.

114 Keep the resonators running until they draw in a large target

The collectors will often all break and be unrepairable, often at 25% of collection, rendering the event unwinnable.

115 Kill the Svanir shaman chief to break his control over the ice elemental

The large ice elemental at the Maw may sometimes shatter during the event, causing Ice Storms to despawn.

116 Kill the chak crown!

The aoe goop that forms on the floor during this event will also damage players gliding high above the event.

117 Kill the grawl shamans animating the elementals threatening the lodge

For unknown reasons, a large group of level 15 Icebrood Elementals may uncontrollably camp on Vendrake's Homestead and annihilate unsuspecting players.

118 Kill the loyalists before they attack the village

Enemies often don't spawn, stalling the event and blocking story progress.

119 Kill the ogre leaders of Sapper's Delve and hold the hill

Occasionally, Commander Neal and the Ebon Vanguard Warriors that accompany him never spawn outside of Forlorn Hope, or they get stuck in Blackwing Excavation, which causes multiple problems. Tahiri and her team are unable to leave Sapper's Delve, the event to defend Sapper's Delve cannot occur, and the Vanguard cannot be used to progress through the Ogre Wars meta event.

120 Kill the veteran lava shaman
  • Sometimes the Iron Legion Legionnaire won't have the
    Event star (tango icon).png
    icon above his head, but the event can still be started.
  • The Iron Legion Legionnaire has to be escorted to Igni Castrum before the objectives show up.
121 Maws of Torment

Demolitioner Folke will often get stuck and make the full event impossible to succeed.

122 Meta-Event Rush

The defense events in Cursed Shore appear bugged and do not always provide Meta-Event Rush rewards.

123 Mordrem Vinewrath

Players who disconnected but reentered the same map instance are not awarded the Vinewrath Chest.

124 Outpost: Teku Nuhoch

The first two events are listed in reverse order in the in-game achievement panel: "Protected Beetle Hatchings" is listed second even though it's the first event in the chain.


"Take the young beetles on their first chak patrol" will frequently bug out making the event chain impossible to complete.

125 Participate in the daily motion vision assessment

The effect indicating the golem to be followed, and even the golem itself, will not always appear under certain graphic settings

126 Pavilion Pursuit: A race is starting soon!

This event sometimes awards 3  Racing Medallion.png Racing Medallions.

127 Prevent White Mantle reinforcements from reaching Saidra's Haven

The event will not fail when Justicar Agatha reaches Saidra's Haven, and her shield no longer protects her.

128 Prevent a brawl between the three legions

This event frequently stops working after it has been repeated several times and does not become available until the next server reset.

129 Protect Ginna Stoneskaald while she repairs Jora's shrine

This event frequently stops working at a variable time after a server reset and is not available until the next server reset. The preceding event will not occur either.

130 Protect Linnea while she chases the jackalope

The dialogue includes a reference to Bjarni who was moved from the area in September 2014.

131 Protect Lunt's fire from the dredge

This event frequently stops working at some variable after a server reset. Lunt is left holding the bomb that he sells after the event but is no longer selling it. The event is not available until the next reset and the other event of the series is also blocked.

132 Protect Pamfa's lab from attacking Inquest agents

Inquest waves may stop spawning, causing this event to stall.

133 Protect Webb as he recovers his heirlooms

Sometimes, Webb Daukins will get stuck at the second heirloom before his wife is able to appear; this blocks event progress past "Heirlooms located: 1/2".

134 Protect crash victims from encroaching vines

If 4/9 Victims have been saved and 4/9 Victims have been lost, the 9th victim disappears and cannot be seen, saved, or taken. The event remains stuck and does not reset during the rest of the Crash Site (meta event).

135 Protect krewe leader Dobbs as the krewe clears the excavation site

Players report that it does not properly reset sometimes after the failure of Defend Rankor Ruins from the Undead, and suggest entering the map when the zone is full or immediately after a patch to get the reset version of this event. This was reportedly fixed on 2016-07-27, but still appears to be bugged as of 2016-09-18.

136 Protect local mosshearts from fire imps

It's possible that no fire imps will appear during the event, making it impossible to participate in the event at all. As a result, the event will always fail and trigger the failure event.

137 Protect the Priory explorers as they investigate Kitah Manse

This event has a tendency to not spawn due to the explorers becoming stuck inside Kitah Manse after being successfully completed once.

138 Protect the engineers repairing the Victory Cenotaph

This event may fail to start, leaving the statue of Pyre Fierceshot destroyed until the map resets.

139 Protect the engineers while they install ley reflectors in Melandru's Lost Domain

This event can become bugged if the circle around the engineer stays red, despite no enemies being inside of it.

140 Protect the engineers while they install ley reflectors in the Burning Forest

This event can become bugged if the circle around the engineer stays red, despite no enemies being inside of it.

141 Protect the engineers while they install ley reflectors in the Underworld

This event can become bugged if the circle around the engineer stays red, despite no enemies being inside of it.

142 Protect the newly hatched beetle larvae until they reach a stable population

This event can stall, and the progress bar can get reset only to get stuck again, which prevents the completion of the Outpost: Teku Nuhoch event chain

143 Protect the siege team as they approach the wall

This event frequently bugs after a server reset and is not available until the next reset. The destination point is marked on the map and the event details are on screen but there is no sign of the team.

144 Protect the soldiers as they gather wood to rebuild Skoll's Bivuoac

If any of the NPCs are downed when the event ends and not revived before repairs are complete, the area's NPCs' AI may become stuck believing the area still needs to be rebuilt. Event NPCs will run in and out gathering wood, and Jules will never become a merchant.

145 Prove you know a lot about Destiny's Edge

This event frequently stops working soon after a server reset and is not available until the next reset.

146 Reach the finish line! (Elon Riverlands)

Progress might not record when crossing checkpoints with any mount other than the Skimmer.

147 Reach the finish line! (Super Adventure Box)

The checkpoint on the mushroom used to launch into the clouds may not reliably activate if approached in bee dog form. Flying too high above the mushroom may teleport the player directly to the clouds without activation.

148 Reclaim Brokentooth Maw
  • Players in the capture zone can continue to capture Brokentooth Maw even if foes are also in the capture zone.
  • The color of the capture zone (blue/red) does not accurately reflect whether there are foes in the capture zone.
149 Reclaim the settlement by burning out the karka nests

Breaking the nests doesn't count towards event participation. Breaking them without killing any karka results in not getting event rewards.

150 Repel the Branded invasion and close the rifts
  • A rift may randomly despawn when the timer reaches 0 seconds, the cause is unknown.
  • The rift SE of Noble's Walk does not always occur, causing a cycle of only 4 rift events. This does not appear to correct itself until map reset.
151 Rescue the Aqualimit researchers from the krait

One of the Aqualimit Researchers can appear outside of his cage.

152 Retake Pinion Pass from the destroyers

Sometimes this event does not end. There will be no more Destroyers, and 3/4 burrows are destroyed, but with no more to be found. The Priory Explorers and Magister Arnlief Iceborne are running in a circle in the camp.

153 Revive hylek of Eztlitl Grounds

Using the ranger elite skill Spirit of Nature to revive the hylek will revive those but not count towards the total causing the event to stuck.

154 Salvage damaged armaments to build bombs

Beigarth gets stuck sometimes and it becomes impossible to turn in the airship salvage. When that happens, a player dying nearby (by falling damage, for instance) can get the NPC unstuck. Also, try searching for a spot where the interact option is "Talk" instead of "Greet".

155 Salvage supplies from the Ordnance Corps airship wreckage

Sometimes, Beigarth will not accept the Airship Salvage you bring him. Dropping the salvage you are holding allows another player in the vicinity a chance to pick it up and turn it in, though some players still encounter the same bug. You can either go back to pick up another Airship Salvage, or pick up any Salvage that another player has dropped and attempt to turn it in. a player dying nearby (by falling damage, for instance) can sometimes get the NPC unstuck.

156 Sandstorm! Sometimes the XX:56:30
Event boss (tango icon).png
[Group Event] Defeat the giant beetle (80) event doesn't start, despite Favor of the Zephyrites being at least Tier 5.
157 Save the hamlet from pirates

The huts are also burning and need to be put out, but there's no animation.

158 Save the merchants from the Bloody Buccaneer kidnappers

This event very often gets stuck. The last merchant is often MIA and the pirates can be invulnerable despite still attacking you.

159 Search rubble for Deldrimor artifacts to give to Scholar Alil Rodez

Alil Rodez may sometimes remain at the Durmand Priory camp in the Godspurs, far to the northwest of the Molent Summit

160 See the Pact crash survivors safely to Meddler's Summit

This event occasionally stalls when the Pact crash survivors are under attack in certain areas.

161 Stop the Inquest operatives from kidnapping adventurers

Sometimes the event does not actually start after the sylvari group arrived at the event site. This blocks the entire event chain.

162 Stop the Inquest thief from escaping with Opticalium research

This event has no known trigger and seems to stall indefinitely.

163 Stop the enraged jotun from crushing the Bear shrine

This event is in the API list but may well be permanently bugged.

164 Stop the pirates from stealing buried treasure

The event can bug out if any of the Buccaneer Diggers are killed during the initial dialogue.

165 The Kodan Claw

The meta event will often bug during "The kodan are preparing for a tournament to choose a new Claw" and block progression.

166 Triple Trouble

If Crusader Yipp is the last one who has not placed down their probe, the event will stall.

167 Use the Priory's "Bramble Begone" rifle to clear vines and reach Bramble Plateau

The event can break if players rush ahead after the 2nd bramble vine is cleared. A bramble wall will grow in the tunnel to the pylon, which cannot be destroyed by spraying Bramble Begone, blocking players from progressing the event.

168 White Mantle Control: Noran's Homestead

Sometimes the event to clear out the remaining White Mantle forces will spawn enemies underground, effectively stalling the meta.

169 Your Mad King says...
  • Using any emote during a "trick" line will knock you down and counts as a miss.
  • Even though Are you getting tired of this? Do you want me to leave? You'd better say NO! is a trick line, the Mad King will knock you down if you do nothing. This does not count as a miss, though.

Story[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 "Where's Balthazar"

If you approach Countess Anise and the priest of Balthazar too quickly at the start, the priest's line will be cut off and Anise's retort won't be said at all.

2 A Grisly Shipment
  • Occasionally players have found that Researcher Maeva becomes stuck in a spot on the deck above the ship's cargo hold. She will still have a star over her head and sometimes it is still possible to get the ghostfire charges from her to place in the hold. Other times however, she will not interact with players at all, requiring a mission restart.
  • Be careful when going up the stairs to the Ark's highest point. You may get stuck behind a wall if you fall from the stairs, and will have to restart the mission since you cannot get out.
3 A Kindness Repaid

Attacking the Mark II Beta Exterminator Golem before it kills Elder Narn and causing it to aggro the players instead will prevent the X-T3R-M1N-8 achievement effect from appearing. Players should refrain from attacking the golem until it kills Elder Narn and the achievement becomes available.

4 A Light in the Darkness
  • When talking to Avatar of the Tree after the first cinematic but before entering the Dream of Dreams, charr and asura players get a dialogue option mentioning the sylvari tutorial's events, while sylvari characters do not.
  • After defeating the Gate Guardian, sometimes you will not be instanced back to The Grove. This causes you to have to start over.
5 A Meeting of the Minds

The voice acting for Zojja's line "Once you're settled in at the Durmand Priory, I may call on you again." during the final cutscene is not using the correct audio. Zojja will speak of the Vigil, even though the character joined the Priory.

6 A Tangle of Weeds

Avoid falling off of the cliff behind where you engage Mazdak. (Keep yourself between Mazdak and the graveyard entrance.) Doing so while he is near low health will result in missing the video during your reset back into town, and an inability to complete the quest. The instance must be cancelled and restarted from the beginning in order to complete the quest.

7 Against the Corruption

Even though it is a level 80 mission, the area scales player characters down to level 70.

8 An Unknown Soul

If you die just before saving all of the wardens, (so that Malyck is able to finish them off) and then respawn at a checkpoint, you will spawn at the beginning. Once Malyck has slain the last of the enemies surrounding the trapped wardens, all of the NPCs will then teleport to your position at the beginning of the map. Doing this only skips a small amount of combat, though, as you will still have to defeat the four court members closest to the start, as well as the two ambushes that spawn thereafter in order to finish.

9 Armor Guard

If you are in a party, only one player can clear out the mines otherwise the undead will infinitely spawn and the party won't be able to continue.

10 Arrival and Survival

It's not possible right now to advance the story beyond the dialog between Scientist Viraddi and First Mate Bilgefire. Logging out near the end of the conversation and logging back in sometimes progresses the story to the next step.

11 Be My Guest

Breaking Palawa Joko's defiance bar during any of the phases above too quickly can cause him to disappear and not return; likewise damaging him too fast can cause phases to not trigger correctly.

12 Beast of War

Completing this as a group will cause the non-instance owner to receive no reward credit. (the instance switches too quickly to accept credit)

13 Blast from the Past
  • In the first instance, after you defend the cauldron, the story objective will not update unless Laranthir is: alive, not in combat, and you have killed a specific Risen Abomination; even if you have already found Nekandezzar.
  • Arda will still have her normal greets after she dies.
14 Breaking the Blade

Sometimes Doc Howler will show up even if you completed The Greater Good.

15 Brute Force
  • If the player character is downed while third wave should start, the mission will get stuck and no more waves will spawn. When this happens, you will have to exit the instance and try again.
  • If the Order of Whispers choice is made, then both Agent Ihan and Crusader Hiroki will react as if you chose to help the Vigil. Neither of their dialogues however have end dialogue options.
16 Buried Insight

Sometimes Taimi may stall after the line "I think so. We're almost right on top of the source!" and will not move forward. The only way this can be avoided is to defeat the golem that spawns and walks down the path before Taimi reaches the area.

17 City of Hope
  • The No More Time achievement may not trigger even if you avoid killing any Sparks.
  • When replaying this story instance, you may be blocked if activating from within Auric Basin. You can re-zone as a workaround. (Leave the zone and re-enter.)
18 Close the Eye

Occasionally Trahearne will get stuck prior to reaching the gate, and as a result the quest marker will not update. If this happens, you can continue to the Senschal (who is at the Conservatory), kill him and fetch his staff - bringing the staff back to Trahearne will then trigger the gate to open and all of the objectives to update. Proceding from here will complete the mission.

19 Confronting Captain Tervelan

Leaving the cave after breaking the gate before the cinematic can start may result in Tervelan remaining Determined and preventing completion of the mission. Restarting the mission is the only way to solve it.

20 Containment

Gixx's voice acting says "Priory anarchists" rather than "Priory arcanists."

21 Critical Blowback

At the very beginning of the mission, wait for Demmi to finish her dialog and move to the front of the side cave before talking to her. Make sure the objective "Search the chantry for survivors" is completed (will be second objective) when you talk to her. If you have talked to Demmi and opened the gate and the objective is not complete you will need to exit by jumping to a way point (costs money) or by re-logging(free) to reset the instance. Re-enter and try again. If this objective does not complete at the beginning, the mission will not complete and you may not progress in your personal storyline.

22 Dangerous Research

When you approach the representatives and Rytlock, the previous mission's conversation triggers before the cutscene.

23 Defending the Keep
24 Descent

Shortly after the instance starts, Aurene is supposed to appear and open up the way. She may not appear, which will force you to restart. This can happen any number of times.

25 Disturbance in Brisban Wildlands

The line "How about we ask..." is assigned to Braham, but it Taimi's voice the one speaking.

26 Down the Hatch
  • Using Fakeout won't cause the opponent to drink, but you can still get caught and poisoned.
  • Tybalt can become stuck when entering the water on the way to Demmi's cell, stalling progress. Sometimes he can unfreeze if your character talk to him, but if he stays unmovable, you may need to restart the mission.
  • The final trigger in the quest won't update properly if your character is downed when defeating the last pirate.
27 Dragonsblood

If the player somehow loses their Dragonsblood Spears, the story section may be restarted to recover them.

28 Dredging up the Past

It is possible that you can't talk to Gixx and so the presentation cinematic for the Durmand Priory will not start. Even so you can speak to Magister Sieran, the objectives will not progress. You might be able to resolve this by going back to the beginning to the instance, or have to restart the instance in Lion's Arch.

29 Estate of Decay

Some players are unable to progress after your host's initial dialogue. To get around this, climb on top of the door to open it. (Discussion on official forum)

30 Evacuation

Sometimes the mission will get stuck and the evacuation won't complete. Usually this is because one of the corrupted mobs has gotten stuck either above the ice or in the water somewhere. If you get stuck during evacuation and the boss won't spawn, swim around and look for a trapped mob in the water or above you on the ice.

31 Eye of the Sun
  • If you have done The Direct Approach, then after the final cinematic, Pellam is replaced with Arlon resulting in two Arlons and no Pellam.
  • Sometimes after doing The Direct Approach, when you return to the Dreamers Terrace, Trahearne's dialogue will not trigger and he and Arlon will simply stand around and will not react to the player's presence. To fix this, simply close the game completely then log in and try again. You must log out fully each time. Logging to character select will not fix the issue.
32 Fixing the Blame
  • Skipping cinematics during the instanced content frequently results in the Pact allies not appearing.
  • Running up to Trahearne when he first appears can result in you becoming irrevocably trapped in the vines as he summons them and forced to restart the mission.
33 Flower of Death

Branthyn's dialogue responds with the line about the Vigil mentoring scheme at three points in the mission, with two of those not matching the context/the question asked.

34 Forewarned is Forearmed

Incorrectly called Forearmed is Forewarned in the Story Journal

35 Free Rein

Sometimes Kudu will get stuck after activating the lightning Weather Matic 5000. Using an AoE skill should fix this.

36 Further into Orr

No matter which course of action you choose, the orders representatives all talk to the player character like they have chosen their plan for the next mission.

37 Hearts and Minds
  • After the fight with Eir, she might continue to attack preventing the opening of the rift.
  • Sometimes Canach will not use or drop his shield during the Blighted Canach fight. When this happens, Blighted Canach can become permanently invulnerable at 25% of its life if you do not break his breakbar.
  • Sometimes when you restart the fight with Mordremoth part of the platform will not return, resulting in Reality Rifts being inaccessible.As of 26 November 2015, if you die during the phase where you are supposed to fly, the area-wide attack animation still persists after you respawn, and at the end of the animation part of the arena will break off, including the floor. If you are waiting at the spawn point when this happens, the arena will be restored immediately; the bug happens only if you return to the fight right after you respawn. In this case the arena part still breaks off at the end of the animation while you are in the fight and the arena is not restored after that. The rift is open in the air where the floor used to be. It is inaccessible and the fight has to be restarted.
  • Sometimes your glider will refuse to deploy.
  • Sometimes the updrafts will fail to spawn or will spawn but will be invisible or will launch you up and out of the instance.
  • There are some invisible walls beneath the platform you can fall behind, preventing you from falling to your death, getting back up, or being attacked by Mordremoth.
  • Sometimes the Blighted bosses will disappear once defeated, preventing progress.
  • Sometimes the Reality Rifts will not pull the blighted bosses in when activated, preventing progress.
  • In the final phase of the fight, sometimes Mordremoth's defiance bar wont be broken after activating the rift and a new rift will not appear. If that happens he is immune to all attacks, but the bar can now be broken using crowd control skills such as Knockback or Chill.
38 Hidden Arcana

Occasionally this achievement will bug and players need to get the facet from 100% to 0% in the given time interval; this is performed by destroying all crystals at once instead of pre-emptively destroying two.

39 Infiltration

There has been a bug in The Hospital in Jeopardy which has occurred twice so far, in Sept-Oct 2017 and then in Feb. 2018. Both times it was eventually fixed. The merged discussion about this bug (and where future comments on its recurrence should be posted) is at (HiJ bug (merged))

40 Iron Grip of the Legion

Killing the first group of enemies too fast after entering the warehouse can result in a bugged instance, forcing you to restart. Kill them group after group to avoid this. If there are no respawns after Flame Saboteur Duccos line "First team is down. Second and third teams: go!" and he instead starts attacking you while he is still invulnerable, you will have to restart the instance.

41 Killing Fields

Trahearne's dialogue when choosing your options talks about the Gear Warband from norn blacked-out storyline instead of Snarl and Galina.

42 Liberation

The exit instance button will only show for the instance owner. Other members of the party will have to character select, waypoint, or wait for the instance to close after the owner leaves.

43 Lines of Communication

If you are doing this story in a party and a party member knocks out one or both Peacemaker guards, the story will not advance to the next objective and you'll have to exit and restart the instance. The same thing will happen if you kill one or both Peacemaker guards; the two krewe members at the start of the instance however can be killed with no impact on the mission.

44 Meeting the Asura

If you kill Vorpp before his crew, he will despawn softlocking the instance, thus unable to finish it.

45 Monkey Wrench

Destroying the Soul Cell Generators before it becomes an objective halts progress. When this happens, the instance needs to be restarted.

46 Mortus Virge

If the Order of Whispers choice is made, then both Agent Ihan and Crusader Hiroki will react as if you chose to help the Vigil. Neither of their dialogues however have end dialogue options.

47 Old Foes, Old Ghosts
  • If a player with the Mursaat Armor effect is standing in the lava pool when the Defeat the Pyroclastic Jade Construct event begins, they can be stuck inside a rock platform. The player will be unable to waypoint as they will be marked in combat by the lava, but not killed by it.
  • Sometimes upon entering the Mursaat chamber you will not be able to activate the device. You will have to waypoint out and re enter the chamber for you to activate the device.
48 Plan of Attack

In some cases, the achievement effect might not appear at all, not granting the achievement even if all the objectives have been fulfilled.

49 Precocious Aurene
  • If a player other than the instance-owner runs ahead in the maze room and stands on the wall before it has raised in the Training for Battle section, the rising wall can trap that player. Use the /stuck command to be teleported to the beginning of the instance. The portal will return you to the maze room.
  • If the Exalted Portal Stone is used while replaying the story or playing it with another character, it will not create another instance, and instead send the character to Aurene's chamber. The only way to return to the story is using /stuck to go to the start of the mission, then using teleporters to get to the current event.
  • While helping the Wounded Vigil, Aurene may become stuck on a pillar and unable to move, preventing the Vigil she is escorting from reaching the safe zone and rendering the objective impossible to complete.
50 Prisoners of the Dragon
  • Entering the cave where the Veteran Hawkeye Griffon spawns after reaching the first area behind vines where Beigarth was defeated may result in the follower NPCs being stuck in the cave. Using the /stuck command or jumping off a cliff to get defeated will not teleport them to the last checkpoint with you. However, gliding to the point where the first Torn Journal page is found, then and going up the stairs and through the room where Beigarth was may make them follow the player again.
  • If the NPCs were not following at the time Rytlock would have burnt a vine, approaching the vine again will not cause him to try to burn the vines, thus preventing completion of the mission if it's not possible to reach the next location by breaking out of the intended boundaries of the path.
  • When doing in a party, it is possible for the NPCs to follow the other player instead of the instance owner, as well as for the other player or players to advance the story instead of the instance owner doing so.
  • Skipping the cinematic too fast after gliding down might cause the NPCs to stay behind and not follow you anymore. However, you can still finish the instance by gliding over the vine wall and defeating the Vinetooth without them.
  • It can happen that the story proceeds to the Defeat the Mordrem Overseer step (disabling the fire grenade crate) while there are still Resilient Tendrils alive and the vine wall still blocking the path. You can walk through the vine wall, down the slope, and approach the Overseer regardless. Your allies will keep trying to fight the Resilient Tendrils (causing no damage to it), but if you walk far away enough, they will teleport to your location and engage the Overseer with you.
51 Reconnaissance
  • Sometimes the cinematic after clearing all of the five spots and returning to the Preceptors will not trigger. Sometimes one of the undead will have a delayed spawn, check all five locations to ensure you haven't missed any.
  • Similarly, the same cinematic may simply not appear, however inspite of the NPCs all showing their post-cinematic dialogues, the "Return to the preceptors" step will not complete, preventing the mission from completing.
  • In the on-screen mission update received after first reading the mail, Doern Velasquez is incorrectly referred to as Doern Vasquez.
  • If you delete the mail you receive before accepting your reward when meeting on the docks you will not be able to progress as normal. To fix this, merely change maps, log out, or switch to another storyline (e.g., Season 2) to receive the mail again.
52 Remembering Scarlet's War

While outside of Lion's Arch the location indicated on the map is south of Grand Piazza.

53 Rending the Mantle

The references to Gnashar's Hills are wrong. The two branches of these events occur in Kessex Hills, one in Sojourner's Way and the other in Blackroot Cut.

54 Roots of Terror
  • Sometimes Chak in the Chak Pit spawn behind the walls making the "Chak Killer—Master" achievement impossible to achieve.
  • Dying during the Chak Blitzer fight will often bug out Braham making it impossible to progress the mission.
  • If the player talks to Magister Humli before Braham and friends get through their voice lines (or before Braham and friends reach the general area), the mission may bug and not spawn any mobs, halting progression.
55 Sabotage

The voice acting for Crusader Thurkill's lines are not using the correct audio.

56 Secrets in the Earth

If Riannoc dies and is not revived before the cinematic plays, the cinematic will just show the risen standing aimlessly (instead of fighting Riannoc) and his voiced lines will not play before Waine steals Caladbolg, stalling the instance and forcing players to restart.

57 Setting the Stage

If you join someone else's instance and view "Setting the Stage," the game will ask if you wish to accept progress. If you click "accept" the game will place you into whichever Order the instance owner has chosen, which could effectively switch you to an Order you do not want. Only click accept if you wish to progress in the same Order as the instance owner.

58 Shape of the Spirit
  • The Svanir Hunter that says "Guard duty is dull" in text actually says "Guard duty is boring" aloud.
  • The Svanir Hunter that says "I'd be doing him a favor" says it twice, the first time being appended to the previous voiceover.
59 Shining Blade Secrets

The last line is a part of a different document

60 Ships of the Line

At the step "Rescue the crew of the Windfall", sometimes the crew of the Windfall may not be able to be revived, halting progress. Avoid this by reviving Elli before any other crewmembers.


At the step "Lead Zott to the remaining siege weapons", sometimes after telling Zott to destroy the third catapult he will sit there and do nothing. You may be able avoid this by not damaging the catapult with AoE spells.


Sometimes Agent Zott stops all movement before finding Elli. This also halts all progress.

61 Silent Warfare

You can spawn on the inside of the wall upon entering the instance.

62 Source of the Issue

Walking too far past Malyck and Caithe before they reach the first group of Nightmare court can cause the objective "Follow Malyck as he retraces his steps" to stay active until the end of the mission.

63 Stand By Your Krewe

If you have conditions on the Password golem, it could die before you can talk to it after turning friendly. If this happens, simply continue on, and use the Code "311"

64 Stealing Light

If you advance the final slope (with the Risen Spider Hatchlings) too slowly, the Risen Spider Lord will not speak and instead become buffed by Determined, making him impossible to kill. Therefore it is advised to rush past the waves of Risen Hatchlings till you reach the Risen Spider Lord rather then killing them (which is supported by the quote from your allied NPC). Currently there is no known solution to this situation if the event does not trigger as soon as you reach the Risen Spider Lord.

65 Strange Observations

If the achievement isn't obtained once you reach Taimi, then before completing the last objective "Share the news of Rata Novus" trigger the second set of traps and walk back into the map room.


When you pick up the 4th mushroom, the effect Achievement effect.png Qualify for Mushroom Conservationist disappears. Provided you haven't used more than 4 different mushrooms, you will obtain the achievement.

66 Striking Off the Chains

After releasing all prisoners below the water and on the tower, the mission may get stuck before finding Warden Hywell and the Krait Priestess. Crusader Apatia may acknowledge that she sees Warden Hywell in his cage, but the Krait Priestess will remain impossible to engage. Nothing to do but start the mission again.

67 Summit Invitations

If you destroyed the totem before the final part, you can't finish that step. So wait until the totem respawns, then interact again.


You can interact with and destroy the dragon totem before the quest prompts you. Doing so will result in getting stuck on that part of the quest, and you will need to wait for the totem to respawn. Takes about 5-10 mins for it to respawn.

68 Suspicious Activity

If Tybalt is killed then you may not be able to complete to the next step in the sequence, even after resurrecting Tybalt. If this happens then you may need to reset the instance. For example, by allowing yourself to be killed.

69 Taking Credit Back

Entering the eastern building too early will cause the game to think you are farther in the story than you should be and Pol will make his comment about Mr. Sparkles too early. Returning to Zojja will continue the story normally, but Pol will not say the line about finding Mr. Sparkles, due to it being triggered earlier.

70 Temple of the Forgotten God
  • As with all underwater areas, using knockback skills, such as Ancient Cudgels found in this area, can cause enemies to go through the walls. This forces players to use non-projectile skills or melee attacks.
  • Some skills can cause players to go through walls, forcing restart of the instance.
  • Swapping weapons while holding one of the orbs (or using any other skill to that effect) might make the orb disappear, thus blocking progress on the rest of the mission. It's advisable to only pick up the orb after every enemy has been dispatched.
  • Sometimes you cannot interact with the first Abaddon Shrine, halting any progress. You will notice this when Sayeh does not say "The Risen have reactivated the temple defenses." after the first part. If this happens, you will need to restart the mission. Waiting a short bit of time before killing the first three Risen and Orrian Crab may prevent this glitch and trigger Sayeh's dialogue regarding temple defenses.
  • Some of the mobs reset at less than half health.
71 The Artist's Workshop
  • The carnival performer that says "Ow! Watch it, that thing's live!" has a male voice, but a female model.
  • Bruno's text says "I'm about to prove" while the audio says "I'm going to prove"
72 The Championship Fight
  • Where Eir asks about the characters greatest challenge, the centaur is referred to as Banthor, but the centaurs name is Gulthor Cruelhoof. Same bug happens again when talking to Gulthor after the fight.
  • During cinematic, Eir says to meet Knut and Mikkel at the Great Lodge for the fight, but the actual location is Lake Mourn.
  • Minotaur Spirit, unlike all the other spectators is facing the wrong way to watch the match.
73 The Charge

It is possible to kill Lonai before she activates her final Shade, which would take you to the next stage. Players have to leave the instance and return to complete the chapter.

74 The Crystal Dragon

If you get defeated, it is possible to respawn in a previous area with no means of reaching the next objective, forcing you to restart the mission.

75 The Departing

Rushing ahead of Nenah and trying to talk to The Judge before quest log updates can make it impossible to interact with him, halting progress, and forcing to restart the instance over again.

76 The End

The episode tends to stall after Aurene's resurrection — before and during the instance change into the Mists, following Kralkatorrik. Exiting and restarting the episode will place you in the correct section so the mission can continue normally.

77 The Ghost Rite

Sometimes Gixx's letter will not be sent or you might delete it too quickly, stalling the quest. Relogging the affected character will resend the letter.

78 The Hospital in Jeopardy

There has been a bug in The Hospital in Jeopardy where the instance contained an invisible wall, making it impossible to finish. This has occurred twice so far (in Sept-Oct 2017 and then in Feb. 2018). Both times it was eventually fixed.

The forum thread Bug: The Hospital in Jeopardy Story Instance [Merged] contains information on the bug. Should the bug appear again, please report it in that thread.

79 The Last of the Giant-Kings

Korag does not spawn with Determined or any similar effect to protect him. If you have pets, minions, or anything similar (such as wolves summoned by Baby Wolf), then they can kill Korag during the cutscene. This will block progress and force you to restart the instance.

80 The Lost Chieftain's Return
  • Sometimes the assault stops before all steps are completed. It may be necessary to restart the instance if that occurs. Getting as far as possible from the kraal before re-etering the event area may help restart the assault.
  • If you speak with Builder Gorkan before the cut scene with Lagula then the attack won't begin. You'll need to exit the instance and re-enter.
  • If you try to speak to Sourfang at the end of the mission, it will answer you using Lagula's voice samples.
81 The Orders of Tyria

Josir's dialogue after the choice has been made seems to assume that his organization was chosen.

82 The Priory Assailed
  • If another player joins you for this part of the story, make sure they are next to Gixx before speaking to him or they risk getting trapped outside the main hall for the duration of the mission.
  • If you stand too close to the laser cannon when it explodes at the beginning of the mission, you can get trapped inside the debris. There's no way out then but relog and restart the mission.
83 The Ringmaster

You cannot talk to NPCs after defeating the Ringmaster until you've read the mail for The Orders of Tyria.

84 The Road to Rata Primus

Sayida tells the commander that the structures blocking her approach are to the west, south and southeast of the cube, when they are actually east, south and southeast.

85 The Source of Orr
  • The Eye sometimes becomes Determined (invulnerable), but fails to teleport. Since the invulnerability persists until he moves, this effectively makes him unkillable, and you'll have to leave the room and reset the fight. This sometimes happens if the character dies during the fight.
  • Sometimes the Eye gets stuck outside the center and never teleports back, instead changing to his normal attack pattern. This is actually beneficial, since the fight goes by much faster when you don't have to run around.
  • Sometimes after defeating the Eye of Zhaitan the instance story does not progress (believed to be linked to killing it too fast).

If player chose grawl as racial sympathy, quaggans will appear together with grawl at Fort Trinity.

86 The Steel Tide
  • Tanks don't always work and may kick you off.
  • If Beirne shows up as a revivable corpse, and you revive him, it will prevent the story from progressing and Deborah cannot be spoken to.
87 The Tribune's Call

Your sparring partner will fail to spawn entirely if the initial cutscene starts too quickly - this cutscene is triggered by player movement, so standing perfectly still until your sparring partner has spawned prevents this from occurring.

88 The Way Forward

When replaying the story for achievements, the entrance point for the instance is obstructed by an updraft of sand unless all previous objectives in the chapter are complete.

89 The World Summit

The Challenge Mote sometimes doesn't appear, making this achievement unavailable in certain instances.

90 Thrown Off Guard

Some groups of the Ministry Guard may not turn hostile or trigger their dialogue as you pass them.

91 Tower Down

Failure to defeat the Risen near each tower before they are destroyed can cause the quest to hang. See the official forums for more information.


Leave the Risen Krait at third tower to the end after the tower is destroyed to cleanly Clear the Beach. Otherwise, you may not be able to talk to Tonn.

92 Track the Seraph

After the objective updates to enter the Black Haven, the green personal story marker on the world map may also remain above Lionguard Keene.

93 Triskell Quay (story) Crusader Hiroki's dialogue after saving Triskell Quay has two incorrect icons (3rd dialogue option). The first should've been a
Talk back option tango.png
instead of a
Talk end option tango.png
and the second should'be been a
Talk end option tango.png
instead of a
Talk more option tango.png
.
94 Trouble at Fort Salma

If you are defeated during the battle with the Mordem Thrasher and return to a waypoint, Kasmeer and Marjory may not show up at the Thrasher fight.

95 Undead Detection
  • During the first instance (at Junction Haven), Scholar Yahala Scribepaw and the warband ally use thier instance complete dialogue throughout the entire mission.
  • In the second instance, Ash legion players who chose Wroda the Quick also receive two copies of Cimmara Pistolwhip.
  • Cimmara Pistolwhip does not appear for players that have completed Deadly Force.
96 Underground Scholar

Scholar Vivian is labeled just as Priory Scholar in this instance. Only during the cinematic she is correctly named.

97 Untamed Wilds

If you run east toward the story exit after reviving Jonkor and without killing the Veteran Branded Siege Devourer, the cutscene where Jonkor will thank you for saving him will play. However, the story still cannot be finished without completing the objective to kill the Veteran Branded Siege Devourer.

98 Uprooting the Iron Marches

This quest may advance if you are within the orange-circled quest area when a dynamic event completes, even if you do not participate in the dynamic event.

99 Victory or Death

There is a noticeable glitch in Sayeh al' Rajihd animations, as instead of looping fluidly, it jumps sharply back to the start of its animation cycle.

100 Where Life Goes

Sometimes Malyck remains as Mysterious Sylvari and does not follow the player into the village. This story can not be finished in this case and must be restarted.

101 Whispers of Vengeance

Skills[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 "Rebound!"

Despite the description, allies always receive an aura when the Rebound effect expires, either from lethal damage or natural timeout.

Sometimes interrupting the cast will cause it to go on full cooldown, without Healing or giving Life Force.

18 Brutal Shot

19 Bunker Down (trait skill)

Shrapnel does not cause cripple with this trait.

20 Burning Retreat (Lava Axe skill)

When equipping the Persisting Flames trait, the tooltip of this skill loses the combo field skill fact and lists two separate duration skill facts.

21 Call Lightning (Ranger)

The Trait Moment of Clarity changes the base duration of this skill instead of the duration, also it increases it by +100% Instead of adding +50% duration. Because this trait affects the base duration of the skill, another effect of CC duration increase such as Superior Rune of the Mesmer can still be applied on top of this, making the total daze duration with both of these combined 8s * (3s * 2 * 1.33).

22 Chaotic Release

Does not work on uneven terrain.

23 Chapter 2: Daring Challenge

The tooltip suggests this skill is unique per game mode, however the skill is identical for all three game modes [verification requested]

The tool-tip does not show the channeling time of this skill (approximately 2.5 seconds).

29 Crab Shell (Crab Battle Form)
  • The range skill fact is completely irrelevant.
  • This skill is missing skill facts for its duration and the regeneration it grants.

Using this skill will cause Portal Entre to sequence to Portal Exeunt during the leap. If an entry portal is already created, the skill will begin recharging without allowing the mesmer to create the exit portal.

31 Crimson Tide
  • Gives 2 life force per hit instead 2%.
  • The version triggered by other skills does not give life force.
32 Dart

When used while Action Camera is active, this skill will swim straight down regardless of where the camera is looking.

33 Deactivate Photon Forge (hot)

When the default Deactivate Photon Forge cooldown is decreased through alacrity, the decreased cooldown will not be transferred over to Deactivate Photon Forge (hot). This can cause an extra 1 second before this skill can be used.

34 Death Shroud

Entering or exiting this form does not grant the bonuses imprinted on carried weapon's sigils.

35 Deathly Swarm

Tooltip damage calculation adds 32 to the weapon strength midpoint, reporting marginally higher damage.

The Explosion skill fact is missing.

 Damage.png Damage: 440 (1.2)?
47 Elixir X

When activated while wielding a kit, this skill sometimes doesn't work.

48 Energy Expulsion

Jumping before the cast finishes can cause the tablet to vanish without creating orbs or knocking back.

49 Entangle
  • While the initial hit inflicts 1 second of immobilized, the roots inflict 2 seconds of immobilized over four pulses for a total of 9 seconds of immobilized.
  • The tooltip says the skill deals damage 4 times, but it actually hits 5 times for a total of 635 damage.
  • This skill inflicts 1 stack of vulnerability each pulse.

 Damage.png Damage: 231 (0.65)?

This skill recharges on a per-ballista and per-player basis. When a player uses a ballista that has this skill recharging, the player's version of the skill is set to the current recharge of the ballista.

57 Fire Sniper Rifle

Skill actually takes 4 seconds to recharge.

58 Flamewall

While the August 08, 2017 game update suggests a damage increase, damage has not been updated.

67 Glob Shot

Sometimes won't bounce to other enemies nor allies.

68 Glyph of Elemental Power
  • The damage increase is only displayed at the skill overview, but not on the four attuned skills. However this is just a visual bug, the increased damage application is working properly.
  • Applying stacks on top of each other of the same type causes one to decay resulting in 4 stacks instead of 5.
69 Golem Battle Suit Prototype
  • As revenants get their skills from legends, and they are not applied during this form, revenants will not have their healing, utility and elite skills available like the other professions.
  • Elementalist Glyphs will have no effect since they have no default effects and attunements will be disabled.
  • The skill #5 appears locked and is never usable.
70 Grappling Line

71 Grasping Darkness
  • This skill can be interrupted early to still pull, but with a shorter cast time.
  • If an enemy is targeted, this skill may fail to activate due to being obstructed, despite no apparent obstruction, and no difficulty hitting the same enemy if the skill was used without a target.
72 Grenade Kit

When used underwater, grenades will not explode until they either reach max range or hit an enemy or object directly, severely limiting their usefulness.

73 Gun Flame

If reflected back, won't do any damage to the caster after travelling total of maximum range even when hit by it.

74 Harpoon Turret

Unlike other turrets, Harpoon Turret may be active while its terrestrial version is also active.

75 Healing Cloud (Jellyfish Battle Form)

This skill is missing skill facts for healing, range, and the regeneration it grants.

 Damage.png Detonation Damage: 734 (2.0)?

79 Illusion of Life

This skill does not rally properly when you are fully healed

82 Lava Chains

Tooltip damage displays ~4.5% higher than actual damage dealt.

 Damage.png Damage: 183 (0.5)?

Displays the Clarion Bond.png Clarion Bond effect even when on cooldown.

 Damage.png Damage: 106 (0.4)?
88 Lick Wounds
  • This skill can be unreliable when used on certain terrain due to occasional pathing issues.
  • While underwater, defeated pets will still continue channeling this skill.
  • If a pet is interrupted when reviving from using this skill, it will resume reviving without having to use the skill again.
89 Light Dash

Players affected by lag or network latency will find that the Light Dash has an undesirable delay when the skill is activated, throwing off player's dash predictability and warping the player back and forth.

90 Light of Deldrimor (Thunderhead Peaks)

Sometimes the skill has to be activated at a certain distance from a chest in order to make it appear. This can sometimes happen in the corner room in the sauna chamber, for example.

91 Lightning Breath

This skill's tooltip is missing multiple skill facts.

92 Lightning Pull

Players affected by lag or network latency will find that the Lightning Pull skill will not work reliably, often causing the leap animation to either shoot over the intended target location or cut short.

93 Lightning Pull (Sanctum Sprint chain)

Some players will find that the Lightning Tether skill will not work reliably, often causing the leap animation to either shoot over the intended target location or cut short. While this is often caused by lag, it can still happen with low latency

94 Lightning Pull (Sanctum Sprint)

Players affected by lag or network latency will find that the Lightning Pull skill will not work reliably, often causing the leap animation to either shoot over the intended target location or cut short.

95 Lightning Tether (Sanctum Sprint)

Some players will find that the Lightning Tether skill will not work reliably, often causing the leap animation to either shoot over the intended target location or cut short. While this is often caused by lag, it can still happen with low latency

96 Long-Fused Powder Pack

Tooltip damage displays 25% lower than actual damage dealt.

 Damage.png Damage: 532 (2.0)?
97 Magnet

Sometimes in WvW/PvP if this skill is cast from higher terrain, it causes the pulled target to fly in the air and take falling damage, occasionally killing them instantly.


Sometimes the target isn't pulled all the way, the cause is unknown.

98 Magnetic Shield (elementalist skill)

Barrier amount has not been increased with the December 12, 2017 update.

99 Magnetic Shield (engineer skill)

This skill cannot reflect Giganticus Lupicus's Necrid Bolt or Frenzied Blast.

100 Magnetic Wave

The tooltip erroneously displays ~5.56% higher damage than the actual amount dealt.

101 Merciful Intervention

This skill is not disabled in the underwater mode, but unlike other ground-targeting skills which are transformed underwater to point blank skills without targeting, this skill can be applied only to a surface of the bottom of a reservoir. As a result, it has very limited usage underwater and cannot be activated in a deep water when the bottom is far below.

102 Mind Spike

The damage dealt to an enemy without boons is actually 10% less than what the tooltip implies (1.188 coefficient).

103 Mind Stab

Using this skill interrupts your own activation time for other skills that are not healing or control skills - a leftover from when it used to inflict Daze.

104 Minion

Some minions often become unresponsive after leaving combat and engaging in a different fight, often not attacking their master's target unless an enemy attacks them or hits them with an attack while attacking something else.

105 Natural Harmony

Jumping before the cast finishes can cause it to not heal.

106 Overload Earth

Per pulse on allies, per target, activates Signet of Restoration.

107 Phantasm

A phantasm loses its 'phantasmal' look upon being revealed.

108 Phantasmal Duelist
  • The phantasm will often not attack an object that must be destroyed. It will do nothing until an enemy NPC comes within range, at which point it will start attacking the NPC (rather than the object it was meant to attack).
  • The distance at which the phantasm starts shooting is inconsistent. It will often run in closer than 900 or 1200 range even if cast multiple times from the same location against a stationary target.
109 Phantasmal Mage

The damage from the mesmer's strike is not listed on the tooltip

110 Phantasmal Warden

While the tooltip uses a weapon strength of 2615.5, the warden's weapon strength range appears to be 2425-2680 (midpoint 2552.5). This results in the skill doing ~2.4% less damage than the tooltip states.[verification requested]

111 Phase Retreat

When used in some locations, this can teleport you outside of the game world, both over and underwater. You may need to travel to a waypoint after exiting combat, since you likely won't be able to teleport back with skills both over and underwater.


Will sometimes teleport you in place when the target is using a movement ability.

112 Phase Smash

This skill will fail on uneven terrain.

113 Plant Bomb

Has absolutely no effect in combat.

No ground-targeting skill fact.

115 Poisonous Maul

This skill inflicts 3 stacks of poison for 6 seconds instead of the stated tooltip effect.

116 Prayer to Lyssa
  • When a human on the map uses this skill, all humans will hear it, aka your human character may shout "May Lyssa confound you!" randomly.
  • The skill cannot be made to Auto-cast unless you have a target enemy selected and within range.
117 Precision Strike

This skill will target seemingly non-existent enemies.

This skill can hit through gates in World vs World after first bounce.

119 Quick Shot

121 Ring of Earth

Tooltip damage calculation adds 32 to the weapon strength midpoint, reporting marginally higher damage.

122 Ring of Fire (Lava Axe skill)

This skill inflicts 3 stacks instead of the intended single stack per pass through.

123 Riposting Shadows

Occasionally this skill will cause the player to be briefly stuck in the ground.

124 Rocket Boots

The Count Recharge of the underwater version of this skill is 22 seconds instead of 20, and is not affected by the Gadgeteer trait at all, even though the tooltip shows updated values.

125 Rocket Charge

The user can be hit for short duration between leaps.

126 Sand Cascade

Barrier amount has not been increased with the December 12, 2017 update.

127 Scan (Dragonfall skill)

While this skill is active, it prevents the player from picking up Throw Ember Charge and Dragonsblood Spears from stockpiles.

128 Scatter Shot

Despite the tooltip suggesting a 2 second recharge time, it actually takes 5 seconds to recharge.

129 Scorpion Wire
  • The tooltip does not mention that Scorpion Wire uses the ammo system, with a maximum count of 2 and an ammo recharge of 20 seconds.
  • In addition to its intended functionality, Scorpion Wire can also simply knock your foe down without pulling, pull you to your foe instead, or a mix of these effects.
130 Searing Fissure

This skill does not work on uneven terrain.

131 Serpent Siphon

This skill will summon a snake if the AoE is neither positioned on the caster or an ally; there will be no snake otherwise.

132 Shadow Portal

Stealth duration is not increased by Meld with Shadows.

133 Shake It Off (Drake Battle Form)

The range skill fact is completely irrelevant.

134 Shield Block (Ancient Jotun Shield)

This skill does nothing other than going on recharge for 4 seconds.

135 Shield Smash

Shield Smash randomly doesn't deal the damage part to the target, while the bleeding always works. It seems to hit more often if you pause between the first and second chain attack.

136 Shoot (Sonic Rifle)

Confusion lasts for only 3 seconds.

137 Signet of Agility

The passive effect sometimes fails to apply itself when swapping utility slots with another skill.

138 Signet of Agony

Using another downed skill quickly after tapping this skill will put Signet of Agony on a short, 4 second cooldown while still creating a small explosion.

139 Signet of Air

Activating this skill without a valid target interrupts the caster.

140 Signet of Humility

Unlike Polymorph Moa, Signet of Humility has no underwater replacement. Despite the name and description, the foe gets transformed into a tuna, as with Polymorph Tuna.

141 Signet of Undeath

A downed, poisoned player with less than 30% health will not be revived.

142 Signet of the Wild (trait skill)

When Brutish Seals is traited, the recharge is reduced by 40%.

144 Smoke Bomb (trait skill)

The recharge is unaffected by Short Fuse.

145 Soulcleave's Summit
  • Shattershot triggers the effect twice per attack while having the trait Heartpiercer
  • This skill does not create a fire combo field
146 Sous Chef

The Sous Chef will enter combat, unlike all other toy summons.

147 Spear of Justice
  • Enemy leaving tether range, can sometimes still be pulled for a really small duration
  • Casting pull from higher ground in WvW or PvP, can cause enemy to fly upwards in the air and take falling damage.
148 Static Discharge (trait skill)

Tooltip damage erroneously uses the weapon strength of the mainhand weapon, but the damage dealt uses the unequipped 690.5 value.

149 Static Field

Sometimes, hitting the Static Field area will daze instead of stunning the target.

150 Static Field (Lightning Hammer skill)

Miniatures and NPCs that pass the field, even if it was cast by an ally, will be stunned.

151 Steam Surge

While under the effects of Quickness, the Water Field occurs when the cast ends, instead of at the end of the slide, the field ending up a little bit behind.

152 Steam Vent

The player may occasionally get stuck in place after using this skill.

153 Stone Sheath

Barrier amount has not been increased with the December 12, 2017 update.

154 Summon Flesh Golem

The summoned Flesh Golem follows the summoner but doesn't attack in some situations.

155 Supply Crate (underwater)

Supply Crate will not trigger any effects based on elite skill usage, e.g. Superior Rune of Lyssa full set bonus.

156 Surging Maw

The tooltip for this skill incorrectly shows the damage of the skill with a 0.75 coefficient, rather than the skill's actual coefficient of 1.2.

157 Sword Wave

If used instantly when available, can be used twice.

158 Symbol of Punishment

The first pulse of the symbol pulses might, but not the main damage tick. This may be intentional, as it previously didn't pulse anything on the first tick.

159 Tainted Shackles

Despite the tooltip indicating that it scales from offhand weapon strength, the actual damage seems to be based on unequipped weapon strength 690.5.

160 Takedown

Actual knockdown duration is 2 seconds.

161 Throw Enraging Concoction

The skill facts say it grants Haste, but it actually grants Quickness like the skill description says.

162 Throw Gunk (Vehtendi Academy)

Despite its tooltip, this skill does not create a combo field.

163 Throw Mine

If this is placed below a character who was friendly and becomes an enemy, it will not automatically trigger.

164 Throw Mine (Jahr Duskrend's gear skill 2)

Miniatures trigger these mines.

165 Throw Poison Pot

This skill has the corruption type, despite not being a Necromancer skill or being affected by the Master of Corruption trait.

167 Thrown Dagger

Skill variables are for a different skill.

168 Thrown Hammer

The skill facts listed are for a different skill.

169 Thrown Mace

Skill variables are for a different skill.

170 Thrown Sword

Skill variables are for a different skill.

171 Thrown Torch

Skill variables are for a different skill.

172 Transform

Transform skills do not remember Auto-attack settings.

173 Unlock (Key)

Unlocking a chest will not always destroy keys, occasionally leaving them equipped and usable.

174 Unnamed skill (Thaumanova Reactor Fractal)

This skill does not have a name.

175 Unrelenting Assault

Using this skill while near a wall may cause the player to become stuck in the wall. Waypoint or use the "/stuck" command to escape.

Inflicts vulnerability on the Elementalist's summoned allies (such as those summoned via Glyph of Lesser Elementals and Glyph of Elementals).

177 Vengeance (skill)

Dying during Vengeance and respawning at a waypoint before the effect ends will cause you to be defeated again.

178 Virtue of Courage

Within activities, Virtue of Courage gives Guardians an invisible Aegis that will block at least one attack per match. This will destroy the crab in Crab Toss and the Keg in Keg Brawl.

179 Well of Power

The buff applied to allies uses the icon for Well of Blood instead.

180 Whip (Sparking Rod)

Does 0 damage when effective level is at 80.

181 Whirling Axe
  • Asura warriors only display 7-8 hits instead of the listed 15 times, but it still does full damage.
  • Does not give the listed movement speed increase.
182 Whirling Strike (Ancient Cudgel)

This skill may push enemies outside the boundaries of the map, sometimes making them unreachable unlesss with cleave attacks.

183 Whirling Wrath

  • Tooltip projectile damage is calculated with a 0.375 coefficient, but the actual damage calculation uses 0.1687.
 Damage.png Projectile Damage: 68 (0.1687)?
  • The number of hits displayed in the chatbox is inconsistent, and generally displays fewer hits when the player does not have quickness. These missing hits are "stored" until the skill is cast again with quickness, where it dumps them all at once into the box. Overall damage is unaffected by this.
184 Whirlwind Attack

Sometimes multiple seconds after casting hits enemies randomly far away from casting location or the user.

Traits[edit]

# Page Bug description
1 Armored Attack

Does not apply power based on toughness gained by the following sources:

2 Autodefense Bomb Dispenser

The recharge is unaffected by Short Fuse.

3 Beastly Warden

This trait does not work with most underwater F2 skills.

4 Blood Fury

The internal cooldown does not exist. No matter how many instances of fury are applied, they all apply Kalla's Fervor.

5 Bunker Down

Shrapnel does not cause cripple with this trait.

6 Burst of Agility
  • Can no longer be recharged with the Improvisation trait.
  • The Haste applied by this trait has a 60second base cooldown, unlike the actual skill which was reduced to being 30s.
7 Fast Hands

Rather than reducing weapon swap times as the description suggests, weapon swap times are instead set to 5 seconds. This can cause issues when players traited with fast hands are carrying bundle items, since the five second wait time is enforced before players can drop the bundle. (This only seems to affect the drop bundle icon on the GUI, and using a bound keyboard command will still allow players to drop the bundle without issue)

8 Fencer's Finesse

Illusions striking a foe with any weapon, but a sword in the offhand will trigger this trait.

9 Flesh of the Master
  • Re-equipping this trait while already having this trait equipped, or moving it to a different trait slot will kill the minions, instead only dying when it's added to or removed.
  • Having this trait equipped will kill all minions when moving between areas with different effective level.
10 Foot in the Grave

Stun Break is missing in Desert Shroud Tooltip, it will however Break Stun.

While the weapons state that Coalforge is a dwarf; he is actually a norn.

173 Enhanced Miner's Hammer Mark G (Lionscout Tunnira)

Engineer Gilli, a heart vendor in Kessex Hills, also sells an Enhanced Miner's Hammer Mark G with the same flavor text. This item's name and flavor text are likely a bug, since neither one has anything to do with the area.

The item name contains a misspelling of "inscribed".

175 Eternity

The aura disappears when in combat.

176 Evon's Dreams of Economic Dominance

If you are crafting The Dreamer, but have not completed the entire quest chain and obtained the Mini Red Spark, Evon Gnashblade will not prompt the relevant dialogue for the legendary collection.

177 Exalted Assistance

Sometimes the Exalted Bastion summoned does not revive downed players.

178 Expermentor's Collection Staff

The item's name contains a misspelling of "experimenter's".

179 Expertise in Advanced Short Bow Crafting

Misclassified as a Trophy.

180 Explore the Lost Epics of Deldrimor
  • Mosa the Majestic (Short Bow) is currently showing the Baverne the Hunter (Rifle) tale.
  • Mirren the Manipulator (Scepter), Wossaul the Giant (Shield) and Katarin the Bonecrusher (Hammer) close the moment they are opened, making them impossible to be read.
181 Explorer Rivera

If you kill Reidarr in the event too fast, Explorer Rivera will have a [merchant] tag next to his name, and the coin icon over his head as if he were a merchant, but he will not change his dialog.

182 Exquisite Ingredients Pouch

Currently using the Heirloom Seed Pouch icon.

183 Exterminator Torch (Peaceful Grawl)

The descriptions still refers to the item's old vendor, Etta.

184 Faded Portrait

May be invisible, where only the name can be seen. If this is the case, make sure you have already collected the Toy Roller Beetle.

185 Fall Adventure Pouch

If you have a stack of any more than one, the name of the item will show as "Fall Adventure es".

186 Fallen Masks

The next active Fallen Mask appears too often at a position that takes quite long to reach from the previous one even if the fastest route is taken. Because of this, reaching gold tier for this adventure is impossible for most attempts even if the fastest possible route was taken every time while maintaining a constant Celeritas Spores effect.

187 Farmer Arlo

The I'll help you line has an incorrect icon, and closes the dialogue box instead of advancing it.

188 Farmer's Rusty Axe

During the beta, a sylvari named Farmhand Abhean was in Field Medic Leius' place, but he was later replaced. The flavor text for Leius' karma items still reference Abhean.

189 Farmer's Rusty Dagger

During the beta, a sylvari named Farmhand Abhean was in Field Medic Leius' place, but he was later replaced. The flavor text for Leius' karma items still reference Abhean.

190 Faster Than Light

Occasionally, the cannon doesn't fire when it is supposed to or the player may see the exit appear at the new location, but still end up at the old position.

191 Fawcett's Bounty

On the pirate ship at the end of the jumping puzzle, when standing near the first mast with the crates, players can open the chest, but not loot it. To do that, the players have to go inside the ship and loot it from where it was intended to be looted.

192 Feast of Truffle Steak

Duration of Nourishment buff provided by the feast is only 30 minutes.

193 Festival of the Four Winds Reward Track

The PvP Festival of the Four Winds Reward Track rewards the WvW tokenMemory of Battle.png Memory of Battle instead of the PvP tokens  Shard of Glory.png Shard of Glory. Furthermore, the 2nd reward isn't rewarding either 5 PvP or WvW tokens as all other reward tracks do.

194 Fetid Fog

Despite the effect description, the effect applies one stack of confusion and poison every second.

195 Fight life-stealing minions in Hellion Forest
  • Displaced spirits may spawn up trees or other inaccessible areas.
  • Ghostly spiders and shadowy fiends may not spawn at all.
196 Finisher

Since its introduction, the finisher preview window displays rendering glitches when Stereoscopic Rendering is enabled in-game.

197 Fire Elemental Powder
  • The Ember can be summoned underwater. Although it does not seem to fight, it will damage foes.
  • On rare occasions, the ember will not appear when the powder is consumed and the cooldown will still be triggered.
  • The cooldown is currently shared with Pocket Jade Armor and Sunspear Paragon Support consumable.
198 Flame and Frost: Retribution

In the initial release, the dungeon cannot be accessed for many players.

199 Flameseeker Verse

The large scrolls outside Augury Rock have slightly different wording for the Lost Verse.

Flameseeker Prophecies: The Lost Verse
On the last day of the Season of the Phoenix
Tyria is revived again
Talk more option tango.png
Continue reading.
The fire is put out, and the diabolic gathering
Is closed off once again, over the bones of the bird of prey
Talk back option tango.png
Restart scroll.
Talk end option tango.png
Leave.
200 Flower Launcher

While the landing points are fixed, there is a still a little variance in where you can actually land. This is easily noticeable at the end of Rapids, where you can fall short of the Cage boss's mountain and plummet to your death.

201 Fractal God

The displayed text depends on gender of the viewing character, not the owner.

202 Frostfang II: The Perfected Axe

When you talk to any master weaponsmith, they will instruct you to craft a Honed Axe Blade and Weighted Haft instead, which is for Astralaria II: The Apparatus.

203 Fused Gauntlets

The gauntlets currently have graphical bugs with the dripping effect while in stealth. It is not known at this time if this gives away the user's position in sPvP/WvW.

204 Garden Plot Deed

Sometimes spawns with four Growing Crops when first unlocked. These will turn into Open Soil on the next reset.

205 Gate Controls

Occasionally loses its name, becoming "Unknown."

206 Gilded Hollow

Sometimes the southernmost plant synthesizer will not spawn when an instance of this map is created.

207 Glowing Purple Mask

Has slight overlay issues, which results in two pairs of eyes being displayed over another.

208 Glyph of Industry

Going into combat while channeling seems to negate this effect.

209 Glyph of Volatility (Unused)

This item's description says that it rewards unbound magic, but it actually rewards Volatile Magic.

210 Goemm's Lab
  • If you have completed the Buried Archives jumping puzzle in the same server reset period, you will be unable to loot the chest at Goemm's Lab.
  • On occasion, attempting to return to the Stormy Station, the Golem Assistant will transport you to an unsafe location, causing you to fall immediately after you spawn and forcing you to restart the puzzle. To prevent this, take a step or two closer to the NPC before accepting the transportation offer.
  • A few players have reported that, after falling from certain spots, they are transported back to the inquest complex in the northeast corner of Metrica Province. This removes any existing attunement, so that you would have to restart the puzzle.
211 Goldenlight Hallow Lab Test Results

Recruit Wongoo in Straits of Devastation sells a version of this item despite having nothing to do with Seesa or the lab in which she works.

212 Gortho, Son of Malik

The associated event chain may stall for reason yet to be known.

213 Gourmet Training

If you close the dialog after delivering Empowered Heat Stones to Luron the Baker, you may not be able to immediately deliver the Bloodstone Bricks. To fix this, remove any bloodstone bricks from your inventory, and then talk to Luron again. He should offer a reminder of what you need to do, after which you can then pick up your bricks from the bank again and return to hand them in.

214 Greenlake Tower

Successfully completing the event to capture this tower will not count towards Daily Tower Capturer

215 Grenth's Domain (effect)

This portal does not cause any Corruption to accumulate, making it useless for acquiring Corrupted Ooze.

216 Grothmar Valley Reward Track

In the WvW Reward Track the item  Basic Reward Track Loot Box.png Siege Blueprint Case replaced the 38th reward ( Wood Shipment.png Wood Shipment).

217 Guide for the Lost (achievement)

Unlocking the Sunspear weapon won't count towards the collection sometimes if it is salvaged instead of added to the collection.

218 Guide to Slayer achievements

The Legendary Sand Giant that spawns during Sandstorm in Dry Top is bugged and sometimes won't count towards this achievement.

219 Guild Banker
  • Some guild bankers are currently bugged and give an erroneous message or no access to guild bank. This may often be "fixed" by re-logging.
  • In World versus World, the
    Bank (map icon).png
    bank map icon is used and the Bank symbol appears over the head of the Guild Bankers.
220 Guild Claiming

If your guild has a prior claim on another WvW map then you will receive the same warning, but that claim will not be lost when the new claim takes effect.

221 Guild Heroes Banner

The banner will disappear if the player who placed it logs out of the character that placed it.

222 Guild Siege Golem Blueprints

The version sold by Sigurlina Jonsdottir is Guild Siege Golem Blueprints (service). Buying it does not give you a blueprint.

223 Guild Vault

Right-clicking an item stored in the vault always displays the preview option, regardless of item type. Although, selecting the preview option will bring up the preview panel, only armor and weapons may be previewed.

224 Hall of Monuments (achievements)

Players may occasionally receive mail informing them that their Hall of Monuments achievements have been (usually erroneously) revoked. See Hall of Monuments#Reward revocation for details.

225 Handcrafted Chiminea Ward

This item should be level 68 (with level 74 stats) to match the other leveling weapons that require 30 Globs of Ectoplasm and use skins from the Flame weapons set.

226 Handcrafted Distemper

This item should be level 68 (with level 74 stats) to match the other leveling weapons that require 30 Globs of Ectoplasm and use skins from the Flame weapons set.

227 Harpy Love Momento

The item name contains a misspelling of "Memento".

228 Hasara

To interact with the NPC, you need to overcome multiple invisible walls.

229 Health Vessel

A Heart Vessel will sometimes appear for players who already have maxed out Heart Vessels. If they attempt to interact with the Vessel, it will simply disappear.

230 Hellfire Warhelm Skin

This piece has clipping issues when equipped by an asura.

231 Help Braxa Scalehunter tend to the devourer nests

The Devourer Queens will often all be dead and cannot be revived. Players can still revive the queens using skills like Glyph of Renewal, Spirit of Nature, Signet of Mercy, Signet of Undeath, etc.

232 Help Drojkor, Spirit Squall, control jackals

Jackal pounce does not always trigger the mechanics on Tormented Protection and Exhausted

233 Help Kevach maintain his lodge

Sometimes Volden will no longer hit players with his barrels, making it impossible to complete the keg minigame.

234 Help Paenula train troops

The Net Shot skill on the rifle given by Paenula contributes to whatever heart completion you are currently in range of, not just this one.


At times, the arena will cease to spawn new waves and there is no known way to start it again. It is possible that the arena was intended to be permanently inactive since the September 2014 patch, and is only active due to a bug that triggers its historical behavior.


As of the September 2014 Feature Patch, with the introduction of the New Player Experience, the arena matches are no longer a part of the heart and are no longer able to be started by the player. However, the heart description still mentions it as one of the options.

235 Help maintain order in Moriarity's Hold

Not all pirates will get up.

236 Help the Lionguard keep drakes at bay

Using pheromones to hit the poachers does not advance the mission.

237 Help the Order of Shadows defend against the Forged

The Forged Cannon right below "The Ruination" tag on the map does not progress the renown heart.

238 Help the Seraph outrider camp

After talking to a Wounded Seraph, they will turn into a Seraph Guard and return to duty, but may keep their "wounded" dialogue options. These can be chosen over and over again and will award heart progress each time, making heart completion trivial.

239 Help the citizens of Beetletun maintain their town

Chloe's puzzle frequently stops working soon after a server reset and is not available until the next reset.

240 Heroic Chest

Heroic Chests have sometimes been awarded to players who had their accounts banned and reinstated; this is caused by reapplying account features that are removed during bans. The reason for this may be due to players having an early version of the deluxe edition or collectors edition, but in no way guarantees that one will be received upon account reinstatement.

241 Hidden Chest (Thunderhead Peaks)

Occasionally, a chest will fail to be revealed when in range. To workaround this, find another instance.

242 Hidden Garden (landmark)
  • If a character does not have a Harvesting sickle equipped, no message is displayed and the node is consumed regardless. In order to make node available again, player need to go to character selection screen or switch map.
  • If a character gets interrupted while gathering the node is consumed.
243 Hidden Reliquary
  • The effects required to gain access to Abaddon's Reliquary will be lost when disconnecting or transferring to a different instance of the map. Leaving the map and re-entering may result in receiving them again, but Queen Doran the Cheerful will demand payment for both attempts at a chest instead of just for the second one.
244 Hidden Reliquary Chest
  • If you fall to your death inside the reliquary and are revived inside, you will no longer be able to open any chest. Leaving and returning alive fixes this.
  • Opening a chest shortly before daily reset may prevent the player from being allowed to open a second chest the following day.
245 Hidden Separatist Supply Cache

The in-game object is misspelled as "Hidden Separatist Supply Cach".

246 Hidden Trispear

The flavor text refers to Lightbringer Ives, a karma merchant far away in Cursed Shore.

247 Hiei Quickedge

He is referred to in the event title as Hiei Sharpblade. However, the event boss bar (as well as Hiei himself) are labeled Hiei Quickedge.

248 Hot Foot

The effect often applies burning even to characters moving at maximum speed out of combat.

249 Hunter's Intricate Cotton Insignia

The recipe for this insignia is erroneously sold as a "Recipe: Pillaging Intricate Cotton Insignia" by Master Craftsman.

250 Hunter's Journeymen Longbow

Item name is misspelled.

251 Hylek Flame Turret

The turret can target up to 360 degrees surrounding itself, but will be limited depending on its current facing. There is no discernable logic to this.

252 Hylek Poison Pot (Tlalli)

Does not give a Hylek Poison Pot as indicated by the description.

253 IQ1800 LX

The dialogue for completion is no longer available, allowing players to repeat the hero challenge as many times as they wish.

254 Icebrood Elemental

Occasionally, several level 15 Icebrood Elementals will spawn at Frusenfell Creek. They do not despawn until the next server reset.

255 Icebrood Goliath

Occasionally, Icebrood Goliaths will use ogre shouts upon aggro, deaggro, and death.

256 Icebrood Saga Reward Track

In the WvW Reward Track the item  Basic Reward Track Loot Box.png Siege Blueprint Case replaced the 38th reward ( Wood Shipment.png Wood Shipment).

257 Ikka

While Ikka uses a male asura model, she has a female name and voice.

258 Ill Tempered Barracuda

Ill Tempered Barracuda can often be found stuck on the various platforms near the edge of the water, and will not attack players who approach.

259 Immobile
  • It is possible to become immobilized in mid-air, during this time, the player might constantly glitch up and down. This will also make most skills that can be used while immobile, unusable. Skills without activation time can still be used.
  • While the Immobile is supposed to prevent turning, if immobilize dealt to an NPC or a player that was not moving, it will not prevent them from automatically turning to face the target when a skill is used. But when used on a moving player, skills will fail to activate without automatically facing the target.
260 Inquest Chest (Sandswept Isles)

This Inquest Chest doesn't reward any items upon being opened.

261 Inquest Keypad

Using a keypad on a terminal right as it becomes active will consume the keypad, deactivating the turrets in the area. However, the red spotlights will remain active. Players walking in these areas still have the reticle above them, but won't be shot at. Progress towards White Hat achievement is still gained in this scenario.

262 Iron Band

This heart vendor item has no flavor text.

263 Iron Legion Shield

During the event Defend Rhell Crankmane while he sets up his ghost control machines, Zalvax Brokenclaw will not sell this item.

264 Iron Legion War Banner

This bundle automatically drops and destroys itself immediately on pickup.

265 Iron Sword

The item that would (logically) be named Giver's Steel Sword is instead named Giver's Iron Sword. See the Steel Sword page for details on that item.

266 Itzel Spirit Poison

The Itzel Spirit Poison effect will occasionally be removed during the fight (some players have reported losing the effect when downed, while the effect persists for others through down state), preventing players from receiving Spirit Strings at the end of the fight.

267 Jackalope Tonic

Speaking with NPCs that give players bundles while transformed will result with the transformed player receiving that bundle. This doesn't work with bundles found on the ground.

268 Jahai Bluffs Reward Track

In the WvW Reward Track the item  Basic Reward Track Loot Box.png Siege Blueprint Case replaced the 38th reward ( Wood Shipment.png Wood Shipment) instead of correctly replacing the 39th reward ( Tome of Knowledge.png Tome of Knowledge).

269 Jahr Duskrend's gear

Miniatures trigger the mines.

270 Jeev's Dusty Focus

During beta, Jeev's name was changed to Vejj, but the item names and flavor text were not updated.

271 Jeev's Dusty Scepter
  • During beta, Jeev's name was changed to Vejj, but the item names and flavor text were not updated.
  • The flavor text references some sort of firearm, not a scepter.
272 Jeev's Dusty Staff

During beta, Jeev's name was changed to Vejj, but the item names and flavor text were not updated.

273 Jeev's Glossy Focus

During beta, Jeev's name was changed to Vejj, but the item names and flavor text were not updated.

274 Jeev's Glossy Scepter

During beta, Jeev's name was changed to Vejj, but the item names and flavor text were not updated.

275 Jeev's Glossy Staff

During beta, Jeev's name was changed to Vejj, but the item names and flavor text were not updated.

276 Jeweled Broach

The recipe for unlocking the ability to craft the Jeweled Broach can also be bought from Irvine for 2 Silver coin 64 Copper coin. However, currently in the merchant window the recipe is labelled: Recipe: Owl Amulet. Once bought and consumed the recipe will grant the ability to craft the Jeweled Broach.

277 Juvenile Tiger

The juvenile tiger in Mariner Landing will not respawn after being tamed by a player, requiring switching maps or killing the tigers.

278 Kahdash's Riding Bow

Salvaging or using the item in the Mystic Forge without first equipping or adding the skin to the wardrobe does not unlock the skin for the collection Guerrilla Arc.

279 Kamohoali'i Kotaki

Currently, Kamohoali'i Kotaki does not use the stow animation.

280 Keep the Inquest from endangering Mrot Boru

Since the area of this renown heart does not actually extend to Mrot Boru, activities in the actual Mrot Boru area south of the heart such as events and as interacting with Shady Assistants do not progress the heart

281 Keg Brawl
  • Handing the keg to the enemy brewer will grant you positive score, although the match point is given to the enemy team correctly.
  • The training field is still using old versions of skills Lob and Throw as they were before Game updates/2012-10-01.
  • The Dive Roll from the empty-handed skill bar does not give the player the evade effect stated in the tooltip.
  • Guardians still benefit from the passive effect of Virtue of Courage during this activity, allowing them to periodically block an incoming attack.
282 Kelvei, the Legendary Observer

One of the dialogue branches for the second tier collection is mapped to an incorrect node. After choosing "I need help with one of the miscellaneous items.", Kelvei responds "Which other item can I help you with?". If the player selects "I have a question about a different item.", Kelvei will ask "Which challenge item do you need help with?" rather than "What can I help you with?".

283 Kendrick Redstaff

Sometimes this NPC has a 24-hour Determined effect that can only be removed by escaping his range, allowing him to reset.

284 Kodama

The option to give 5 Charged Lodestones and 10 Fire Orchid Blossoms may appear before its collection is unlocked, consuming items without giving progress.

285 Krait Obelisk Shard (hero challenge)
  • The map icon will sometimes appear uncompleted for characters that have completed it.
  • Some characters cannot complete this challenge.
286 Krepet

In unknown cases, players are unable to start a dialog with Krepet, despite having the Mini Angry Chest already in their miniature collection. Using another character to do the quest may avoid the bug.

287 Krewe Leader Lenx

The dialogue is identical to the one of Genius Ceejla. It makes sense for Ceejla to be referencing Almogg, for Lenx it doesn't.

288 Kudzu

There is a bug where Kudzu's projectiles will become other Kudzus, making it appear as though you are firing copies of the longbow instead of the normal projectiles.

289 Kudzu (skin)

There is a bug where Kudzu's projectiles will become other Kudzus, making it appear as though you are firing copies of the longbow instead of the normal projectiles.

290 Lashoosh Friendship Bracelet

The urchin event can become bugged and not reset. It is recommended to pursue this item when the zone is full or immediately after a patch.

291 Last Rites (weapon)

Despite being a level 80 weapon, it has the stats of a level 78 weapon.

292 Legendary Axemaster Hareth

May become immune to physical damage if his Defiance bar is broken.

293 Legendary Risen Priest of Melandru

The Legendary Risen Priest of Melandru loses the ability to enter his second phase when the event has been repeated a certain number of times. This "counter" is reset whenever there is a game update or server maintenance.

294 Legendary Rune

Even though legendary runes have the stats of exotic level superior runes they currently do not combine with exotic runes to a full set of superior runes. Instead they give the first bonus(es) a second time. That means if one combines 2 legendary runes of Melandru and 4 superior runes of Melandru, one gets +25 Toughness +35 Vitality +50 Toughness and -10% Incoming Condition Duration and a second time +25 Toughness +35 Vitality, so together one gets +100 Toughness + 70 Vitality and -10% Incoming Condition Duration in this example.
This seems to be a bug because all 6 tiers of the superior runes bonuses are displayed blue, as if they are all granted.
That means that currently only a full set of legendary runes is useful.

295 Ley-Line Magic
  • Revenant utility skills are not available in this form as it removes profession mechanics.
  • While this effect does not prevent using utility skills, gaining it will kill all minions and put minion skills on recharge for 15 seconds.
296 Lieutenant Leafe

Lieutenant Leafe offers the option to interact but has no dialogue except during events

297 Light source

The light source from a torch will sometimes not activate, even when torch skills are used. Being knocked down or taking falling damage will occasionally fix this.

298 Lionguard Hela

Although a member of the Lionguard, she wears Ebon Vanguard armor.

299 Long Live the Lich (achievements)

[FTT 403] Healing Aura Level 4 is incorrectly named "Intermediate Dynamics" instead of "Advanced Dynamics".

300 Lost Coin

Coins may occasionally reappear for accounts that already collected them. However, this has no ill effect on achievement progress.

301 Love among the Weeds

This step cannot be done while Point of No Return is active.

302 Lumber Synthesizer 2

The upgrade appears to unlock soft wood, not seasoned wood, for the synthesizer.

303 Lunatic Inquisition
  • Elementalists still benefit from the Zephyr's Speed and One with Air traits during this activity, allowing them to run noticeably faster than other players.
  • Guardians still benefit from the passive effect of Virtue of Courage during this activity, allowing them to periodically block an incoming attack.
  • Sometimes, characters will not be fully transformed, keeping their appearance or not getting a ghostly visual effect.
  • Toys can be used during this activity. As a result, it is possible to use Summon Cauldron. However, players transformed by using a summoned cauldron will be instantly defeated shortly after being transformed.
  • Players joining an in-progress game as a Courtier have a chance to spawn stuck inside the ceiling of the central tower.
  • Courtiers who die due to fall damage towards the final moments of the game may return as a villager and be treated as such when villagers win, thus receiving the villagers' rewards.
304 Mabli

Non-sylvari dialogue uses unadjusted sylvari dialogue.

305 Mad King's Clock Tower (jumping puzzle)
  • On some occasions, the player is teleported back to the start right when they reach Mad King's Tower Belfry, due to the rotating clock tower not synchronizing the opening to game clients.
  • On some occasions, the player may fall through the green vortex without being sent back to the docks immediately.
  • On some occasions, the player may be teleported to the sea and will be forced to leave the map in order to return to the docks.
  • The system does not inform the player that no one can hear you when speaking in team chat. Local and map chat still works.
306 Magical Orrian Lure

The flavor text for the fine variant of this item is missing Supply Sergeant Mattimer's name.

307 Maguuma Guardian (active effect)

Sometimes gives 1000 power, but often gives neither power nor toughness.

308 Mail

There are two other reasons why you should keep your inbox as empty as possible:

  • Certain event-related mail will count against the inbox limit.
  • Even if your inbox is full, you can continue to receive this same type of event-related mail. The game will display this as Inbox 11/10" and the most recent such mail will be automatically deleted the next time you logon, even if you did not read it.
309 Malfunctioning Turret

It is likely that (new string) is a placeholder and the skill was never given a name.

310 Malomedies's Observational Tips

Appears as Melomedies's Observational Tips when seen on the ground.

311 Mantra of Concentration Ready

Occasionally, linking the effect straight from the Effects Monitor or by using the chat code to another player who doesn't have the effect themselves results in an empty bracket code for the receiving player.

312 Mantra of Distraction Ready

Occasionally, linking the effect straight from the Effects Monitor or by using the chat code to another player who doesn't have the effect themselves results in an empty bracket code for the receiving player.

313 Mantra of Pain Ready

Occasionally, linking the effect straight from the Effects Monitor or by using the chat code to another player who doesn't have the effect themselves results in an empty bracket code for the receiving player.

314 Mantra of Resolve Ready

Occasionally, linking the effect straight from the Effects Monitor or by using the chat code to another player who doesn't have the effect themselves results in an empty bracket code for the receiving player.

315 Map completion
  • Some players reported that they did not receive the reward when they obtained the world completion achievement. For some, revisiting the Chantry of Secrets resolved the issue. A few were able to work around the issue by revisiting every map on the required list. Another fix is to go through the Asura gate in Lion's Arch to Black Citadel. If you encounter this issue and are not able to fix it on your own, you will have to contact ArenaNet support.
  • If a character has attained map completion for a zone, and that zone, at a later date, has new items added, those new items need to be discovered in order to unlock the achievement, but not in order to get the world completion reward chest.
316 Marshal's Stellar Orrery

This weapon's recipe is categorized as a component instead of a hammer.

317 Medical Aid Recording

Players are reporting that they cannot acquire this item, despite having the Recording Device and reviving many allies. If you are encountering problems, try the following:

  • Purchase an additional, new Recording Device.
  • Have the character who bought the Recording Device(s) perform the revives.
  • Try reviving allies and NPCs that are in a defeated state, rather than downed

This recording can be acquired unintentionally because it is not restricted to a single event or map location. It may be obtained multiple times, and before the gated stage where it can be uploaded to IG-6417. To work around this try the following:

  • Only carry Recording Device(s) when actively unlocking this collection
  • Reduce the number of revivals of players and NPCs while carrying this device.
318 Mega Bomb

Only deals 50 damage against King Toad, just like the mini bomb.

319 Mehdi's Monstrous Grogs

Leaving the instance after taking a drink will cause any remaining drinks to be removed for the day.

320 Miniature Sun

It uses harpy sounds.

321 Minor Sigil of Mischief

This sigil launches two snowballs instead of one when activated.

322 Minstrel's Misfortune

DiGiacomo was moved over slightly after the August 8, 2017 Update. You still need to /laugh in his old location to receive credit. His previous location is down the stairs southeast of Captain Kiel's Office.

323 Mira

In some cases, Mira will fail to appear in the Black Citadel home instance, even if she appears in the other cities.

324 Mist Shard Coat Box

The contained recipe book shares a name with this item instead of being properly named Mist Shard Coat Recipe Book.

325 Mist Shard Coat Box (recipe)

The item shares a name with  Mist Shard Coat Box.png Mist Shard Coat Box instead of being properly named Mist Shard Coat Recipe Book.

326 Mistlock Sanctuary

It is possible to get trapped inside the scenery when using Nova Launch.

327 Moa Farm Gate
  • The closing line on all three gates surrounding the ranch have the
    Talk more option tango.png
    icon, rather than the
    Talk end option tango.png
    icon.
  • The southern gate is incorrectly named Gate.
328 Molvarpa

Despite what their ability description says, Molvarpa is not immune to blind.

329 Molwurve

Despite what their ability description says, Molwurve is not immune to blind.

330 Mourner

The last dialogue option is missing a closing line.

331 Multicolored Ooze Tonic

Using this tonic when underwater will consume it with no effect.

332 Mysterious Stone

Sometimes your progress is restarted regardless of your quickness.

333 Mystery Tonic (furniture)

If you have transformed when swimming, using the map travel within current zone (for example, in Lion's Arch) does not enable Return skill: it becomes visible on the skill bar, but has no effect. You will stay transformed at the waypoint.

334 Mystic Forge

Sometimes a recipe is not recognized by the Mystic Forge UI, even though the ingredients are correct. To get around this issue you can try:

  • Putting the ingredients in different orders.
  • Closing and reopen the mystic forge.
  • Reloading the map
  • Loading a different character
  • Using a different mystic forge source/station.
335 Mythwright Gambit

Kenut may occasionally spawn no waterspouts after teleporting to her final platform.

Some items display the wrong icon, for example, Slice of Watermelon is a food, but it generates a utility icon.

7 Noxia
  • Occasionally, she does not disappear.
  • Occasionally, she becomes invulnerable.
8 Noxious Pod

Noxious Pods that appear in camps after events will only give Pile of Auric Dust instead of either Bottle of Airship Oil or Ley Line Spark, regardless of lane. Same is true for Potion of Auric Attunement, Potion of Verdant Attunement and Potion of Tangled Attunement, where only the first one can be acquired from aforementioned pods.

9 Ogre Breaker

Combining a Darksteel Hammer Head, Large Hard Haft, and Giver's Darksteel Imbued Inscription produces a Giver's Darksteel Hammer which uses the ordinary Darksteel Hammer skin.

10 Ogre Longsword

13 Oldgate Leather Leggings

14 Options

Currently, when Stereoscopic Rendering is enabled, targeting effects and certain icons next to the player's health bar do not render correctly, and most ground becomes discolored when Shaders is set to High. Graphic changes often go unannounced when a new game update becomes released, and may change again in future updates.


At the moment, enabling Camera Teleportation doesn't trigger instant movement to the player's new location upon the usage of short-ranged shadow steps.

15 Order Risen Disguise
  • This transformation is missing most new animations such as gliding or staff melee attacks.
  • Some clone skills such as  
    Mirror Images.png
     Mirror Images and  
    Ether Clone.png
     Ether Clone will not produce clones under this effect.
16 Order of Whispers Mission Dispatches

The audio does not play for pages 3, 4, 8, 9, and 10 when selected individually; when played altogether from the beginning, the audio for these pages can be heard.

17 Orrian Coffer

Occasionally, the purchase limit may not increase after completion of an event.

18 Orrian Relic

The item's description refers to Scholar Riagan as "Arcanist".

19 Paper-Bag Helm Skin (Sad)

The item is currently named "Happy" instead of "Sad"

20 Partake in the moot

Unable to rouse passed out partiers by throwing a bucket of water on them.

21 Particle Collector

Yasna gives the player another collector as they hand in a filled one. This one can be safely discarded.

22 Party

If you are not close to the location of another character, already in a party, when selected, "Invite to party" may be shown instead of "Join Party". Workarounds include getting closer, the party inviting you and using another method listed above.

23 Path of Fire: Act 3

There is a known issue with The Whole Story causing the achievement to fail to trigger. To successfully trigger it, do not go past the last stairs and simply stop by the brazier, where "Your Purpose" lands.[1]

24 Peacemaker Zeppa

Uses Technician Penn's after hearts' dialogue

25 Permanent Portable Provisioner

The ingame tab title is Superior Blueprints (Proof of Heroics) instead of Superior Blueprints (Testimony of Heroics).

26 Personality

Although choices made by the player affect personality, there is no way to see a character's personality scores.

27 Pet
  • Sometimes a ranger's pet will load on the map before the owner; this causes the charm skill, F to trigger for other rangers (as though it were a pet without owner). Pressing the key has no effect.
  • Sometimes when fast traveling from an underwater area to one on dry land, an aquatic pet will load before swapping to the terrestrial pet. For example, the player can briefly see a flying jellyfish.
  • Pets do not automatically recover if they die from falling damage.
  • Pets sometimes take falling damage from drops that don't hurt the ranger, usually while trying to path over cliffs or other obstacles.
  • Pets summoned by items, such as Ogre Pet Whistle and Fire Elemental Powder, do not level scale after changing areas in maps
  • Pet skills are available while a ranger is downed, even though they do not have UI elements in the downed state.

32 Plush Moto Backpack Cover

Currently the icon for it does not appear in the Wardrobe if not already unlocked.

33 Pocket Jade Armor

The Pocket Jade Armor can't be summoned at the same time as the Ember from Fire Elemental Powder and Paragon from Sunspear Paragon Support.

34 Poisonswill's Giant Bull

Poisonswill's Giant Bull will sometimes leave behind a lootable corpse after finishing the hero point challenge.

35 Polished Stone

This heart vendor item has no flavor text.

36 Potion
  • The tooltip for Potent Potions says that they give +9 % damage, instead of + 8% damage.
37 Potion of Ascalonian Mages

The potion prevents WvW siege engines interaction.

38 Potion of Hylek Transformation

When switching to underwater skills, the player returns to their normal model, and upon leaving the water and deactivating underwater skills, the transformation is canceled entirely, regardless of the time remaining.

39 Potted Shrub

Uses the same model as the Basic Shrub decoration.

40 Potted Tree

Uses the same model as the Basic Tree decoration.

41 Power Return (effect)

Occasionally, linking the effect straight from the Effects Monitor or by using the chat code to another player who doesn't have the effect themselves results in an empty bracket code for the receiving player.

42 Primitive armor

The inventory icons for this armor set still reflect the appearance of how the armor originally appeared, prior to being changed.

43 Pristine Ancient Krytan Dabloon

The item name contains a misspelling of "doubloon".

44 Professor Portmatt's Lab

Sometimes the console may be unavailable even though all three probes are destroyed. A fix involves waiting for all probes to be fully repaired by the repair golems before destroying one.

45 Protect Redreave Mill from Separatists

There appears to be no lazy workers for this task.


Separatist Saboteurs do not deploy any Unexploded Bombs.

46 Protective Bond

When a player receives this effect, so does their miniature.

47 Proxemics Lab (guild puzzle)

The instanced version of this zone uses the Heart of the Mists map centered at Legacy of the Foefire map instead of the Tyria map centered at this location.

48 Proximity Test: Fungus Among Us Adventure

Credit for this item is not rewarded consistently; it is currently unknown how to avoid this issue.

49 Pull

Pulls don't show up in the combat log.

50 Qualify for Untethered

May appear even though the achievement has been completed

51 Quip III: Chaos Gun

If you have Quartz Crystals in your inventory, interacting with the various Hero challenge locations for Lyssa will not show the dialog option for imbuing a Superior Sigil of Mischief.

52 Radiating Brandstone

Sometimes the model of Radiating Brandstones will remain even after destruction, blocking visuals in the area.

53 Raidmarshal Bayonet

Salvaging or using the item in the Mystic Forge without first equipping or adding the skin to the wardrobe does not unlock the skin for the collection Cursed Flintlock.

54 Raw Candy Corn

Since the end of Halloween 2014, Raw Candy Corn nodes may flash in-game and on the map for only a second at unknown times. These are not actual nodes and cannot be harvested.

55 Reaper's Harvesting Sickle

Due to a bug, this item is temporarily disabled. A fix is scheduled for the September 17, 2019 patch.[2]

56 Reaper's Logging Axe

Due to a bug, this item is temporarily disabled. A fix is scheduled for the September 17, 2019 patch.[3]


When harvesting nearby Primordial Orchids planted outside of Draconis Mons, the nodes will be gathered, but the object nameplates will remain, as if not yet gathered.

57 Reaper's Mining Pick

Due to a bug, this item is temporarily disabled. A fix is scheduled for the September 17, 2019 patch.[4]

58 Reaper's Rumble
  • The center mausoleum of the red team is almost impossible to hit using regular ranged attacks through the opening (obstructed). This makes it harder to destroy than any other mausoleum, as the player's auto-attack chain will repeatedly fail on its final attack, but easily avoidable by attacking the walls from outside instead.
  • Attacking a mausoleum doesn't put players into combat.
  • The final mausoleum destroyed does not count to the player's personal score.
59 Rebooting IG-6417

When interacting with the prompts quickly, IG-6417 may accept two modules daily, saying "Software upgrade in progress..." each time, with a noticeable delay for the window prompt as well as collection credit after the second installation. The second item installed will not be removed from your inventory.

60 Recipe: Match Grade Standard Rifle

The flavor text from the recipe sheet is not present on the finished weapon.

61 Recipe: Minor Sigil of Bursting (rare)

The flavor text from the recipe sheet is not present on the finished product.

63 Recipe: Pot of Fancy Bean Chilli

Chili is misspelled.

64 Recipe: Pot of Meat and Bean Chilli

Chili is misspelled.

65 Recipe: Superior Sigil of Incapacitation

Linking this item in chat will produce the error message "Cannot link from this location.".

66 Recon Cove

The symbols on the cabinet do not appear in the Mac client.

67 Recovered SCAR Chest

Unlike other bags, opening this bag on character with level lower than 80 gives less rewards (occasionally none).

68 Refugee Child's Drawing

The plural name is malformed and spells out as 'Refugee Child'Children's Drawings'.

69 Restless Deeps

Occasionally, the Krait can get stuck in the ground and will not be able to be attacked.

70 Revival

Downed players affected by lag or network latency are often dislocated from other players' game client and cannot be revived, except by certain NPCs.


Sometimes a character's location may become desynced with its visual representation. When this happens, it may not be possible to revive that character, as using their body will attempt to start a context-sensitive Revive which will fail since the target is actually too far to start. Players can only try to move around the character continuously attempting to revive in hopes they'll start the skill close enough to the actual location of the body.

71 Rift Repair

The Rift Resonance effect is not always applied when activating a rift. The Volatile Magic nodes still spawn, but the Mistborn Mote is not rewarded and related achievements are not completed.

Collecting a few of the initial magic nodes, returning to the starting point and waiting for the rift to reopen may fix this issue.

72 Rift Resonance

The effect does not always appear when activating a rift.

73 Risen Corrupter

If players position themselves at certain angles under a Risen Corrupter of any NPC rank, their Vapor Blades won't hit the players. Once such angle is found, if nothing moves the player or the Risen corrupted out of position, it is possible to defeat the Risen Corrupted without being hit for the remainder of the fight

74 Risen Krait Talisman

Even though it says Veteran or Champion, it can also drop from regular Risen Krait Hypnoss that spawn during events.

75 Risen Priestess of Lyssa

Sometimes facing the Risen Priestess of Lyssa will continue to Daze you even if she's no longer channeling Corrupted Gaze.

76 Risen Raptor

Risen Raptors are treated as a raptor type creature rather than a Risen type.

77 Risen Squire

Risen Squire's "Dazing Smash" underwater skill inflicts daze but doesn't actually prevent the target from using skills.

78 Risen Thrall

Some male norn Risen Thralls use female voice-overs.

79 Risen Troll

This creature has a "Knocks Down" ability listed, but possesses no knockdown skills.

80 Risen Villager

Risen Villager's "Dazing Smash" underwater skill inflicts daze but doesn't actually prevent the target from using skills.

81 Rune of Lyssa
  • The 6th bonus is not triggered by the activation of transformation elites, although if these transformations are ended prematurely, the effect will take place.
  • Condition duration from the runes isn't reflected in skill tooltips, but it does correctly increase duration.
82 Rune of Resistance (PvP)

It presently does not add Resistance upon the Engineer profession's usage of Elixir X.

83 Rusty Ancient Krytan Dabloon

The item name contains a misspelling of "doubloon".

84 Salma District
  • Josir is glitched so that there's two of him in as if stacking.
  • Ftokchak is referred to as skritt forager.
85 Sample of Hylek Poison

Despite the description, Blopp will not accept these items at any time.

86 Sanctum Sprint
  • The fireworks launchers around the finish and the reward chest are all unlabeled and named "Unknown".
  • The game is supposed to end when everyone has crossed the finish line, but this doesn't work properly if somebody quits the game.
87 Saving Skyscales

Some players might receive a duplicate of the first collection mail instead of this collection's mail.

88 Scarab

Incoming disables while flying will occasionally fail to ground the scarab, leaving the scarab stuck in its flying animations without any skills to use.


Wind Gust grants swiftness on-cast to a player or NPC a scarab has aggroed.

89 Scarlet's Secret Lair

Since the "Living World Season 1 - Scarlet's War" episodes are no longer available, the chests cannot be opened since the needed ciphers cannot be acquired. This site is needed for additional content (creating legendary weapons). As such, it is still accessible.

90 Scholar Nabbi
  • Nabbi is marked as a karma merchant, but sells nothing for karma.
  • Sometimes after the event ends you can't interact with Nabbi.
91 Scholar Nancy

Scholar Nancy and the rest of the Pact team can sometimes get stuck outside of Zho'qafa Catacombs and block event progress.

92 Scholar Tebbi

Scholar Tebbi and the rest of the Pact team can sometimes get stuck outside of Zho'qafa Catacombs and block event progress.

93 Scout Acan

Players might have difficulty talking to Acan, even if the next step of the story says to do so. Logging out and in again can fix this.

94 Scrabclaw's Roost

For some players, the hero point icon fails to appear on the world map or minimap while also not showing on the content guide potentially blocking world map progress. Logging in and out or switching characters resolves this issue.

95 Scrap Rifle Field Test

The Bouncing Mushroom at the far east side of the arena, near Terraced Hive, does not work.

96 Scribing: Dragon Banner

Though the description says it's a tier 3 upgrade, this is actually a tier 2 upgrade in WvW.

97 Scribing: Turtle Banner

Though the description says it's a tier 1 upgrade, this is actually a tier 2 upgrade in WvW.

98 Searing Cauldron

This hero challenge does not have the same starting icon as the many of the other ones of the commune type.

99 Secure the area around Dryground Village

Challenging Wardens to battle does not progress the heart.

100 Selfless Potion

The halo model is barely visible on asura characters, and is completely obscured by certain hairstyles and most headwear.

101 Selfless Potion (effect)

The halo is barely visible on asura characters, and is completely obscured by certain hairstyles and most headgear.

102 Sensor Tracking (effect)

While under this effect, all skills and actions play the sound of the Sensor Tracking skill.

103 Sentinel Rifle

If another of these consumables is used while already holding one before using One Shot, the bundle will be dropped and re-equipped without refunding it first. If One Shot was used, the consumable will also be consumed without re-equipping it.

104 Sentry-skritt Arkatopf

Arkatopf is talking about Inquest even when they have been driven out already. This suggests that the dialogue about slimes (which has a very short timeframe) is supposed to replace it during that time.

105 Sentry-skritt Rennatiff

Rennatiff doesn't mention destroyers. Instead he mentions the Nightmare Court, strongly resembling Sentry-skritt Laktanek's dialogue.

106 Seraph Soldier Denna

The Order of Whispers dialogue option will repeat the current text being shown to the player rather than advance the conversation.

107 Shadewort

The actual glowing animation (when wielding) does not match the one shown in the preview screen. It is barely visible in-game.

108 Shadow

Interacting with Shadow posts an empty line to the chat log.

109 Sherrif's Battle Commendation

Item's name has a misspelling of "sheriff".

110 Shield

When unsheathing the shield while standing still, backpack items will be on top of the shield as it's drawn, but quickly snap onto the back.

111 Shiny Short Bow

The weapon is positioned too high when stowed.

112 Shrine of the Six

While on the inside of the shrine, there are six windows and statues to the gods, on the outside there are only five - Grenth's is missing.

113 Siege Chest

Sometimes might drop Mini Keep Construct instead of one of the unique drops

114 Sigil of Bloodlust

Going underwater removes all stacks of Bloodlust unless a Sigil of Bloodlust is on your underwater weapon.

115 Sigil of Geomancy

This sigil can have a bugged interaction with the elementalist's conjure weapons, causing the effect to occur when the weapon is summoned but preventing the weapon from being immediately equipped as a bundle

116 Sigil of Misery (PvP)

It presently does not affect Torment condition's duration.

117 Skeleton (skeletal lich summon)

These Skeletons have "Blocks" listed as an ability but aren't actually able to block.

118 Skimmer Treat

You also need to have space in your inventory to consume it

119 Skyscale Rift

Sometimes players will not get Rift Resonance when the rift gets activated. To remedy this, step away from the rift and wait until all of the Volatile Magic has spawned before approaching it again.

120 Smoke Bomb (Lunt)

The blind condition is not always applied.

121 Smoke Bomb (bundle)

The blind condition is not always applied.

122 Snow Troll

Snow Trolls have "Knocks Down" listed as an ability when they actually launch foes instead.

123 Sol Eater

Occasionally Determined will be permanently applied, making it impossible to defeat the Sol Eater.

124 Sorcerer's Epaulets (skin)

The inner section of the piece takes its color from a dye channel on the boots.

125 Soulbound

Soulbound items deposited in the bank cannot be used by other characters in crafting recipes.

126 Southsun Survival
  • If you have used any durability or ammunition and pick up items dropped by another survivor you will lose your weapon, otherwise you will drop it on the ground. This does not happen when salvaging Miscellaneous Goods.
  • Karka inside camps that haven't been spawned yet can still be struck by melee weapons, using up a point of durability.

  • Players that are in the match during the "Waiting for players" phase of the game will be cured of immobilize and be able to move around during the game start countdown. Players will be immobilized again when the countdown ends and the game begins.
  • Players that are too far from the starting camp when the game begins do not lose their immobilize, do not receive the first stack of Hungry, do not receive rewards at the end of the game, and do not get progress towards their Survival Survivor or Southsun Survivor Regular achievement tracks.
  • Guardians still benefit from the passive effect of Virtue of Courage during this activity, allowing them to periodically block an incoming attack.
127 Sovereign Eye of Zhaitan

If you die, it has a high chance to be stuck determined, to fix this you must restart the instance.

128 Spearmarshal's Lament (instance)

There is a chance after completing the Open Skies: Sunspear Wisdom collection that the pedestals at the Sunspear Sanctuary will not provide the appropriate dialogue to finish this achievement.

129 Spectral Flame

They are meant to only appear around Serenity Temple when events are active, however, a bug causes them to spawn and chase players across Blazeridge Steppes.

130 Speed boons

If the player attempts to interact with certain speed boon NPCs after obtaining their boon, dialogue responses will fail to appear if the remaining time on the boon is less than 40 seconds.

131 Speed of the Battlefield

Does not exceed the blanket speed cap of 33% out of combat, 25% in combat

132 Spirit Axe

The bonuses from the main weapon, which has been equipped before obtaining the Spirit Axe, increase the power of its weapon-related skills, as well as other stats including Health, despite the fact that main weapon looks replaced and weapon swapping is disabled. However, if you unequip the main weapon on the Hero panel, it cannot be equipped back and bonuses will be lost.

133 Spirit Strings

The Itzel Spirit Poison buff will occasionally be removed during the fight (some players have reported losing the buff when downed, while the buff persists for others through down state), preventing players from receiving Spirit Strings at the end of the fight.

134 Spirit of the Perfected Harpoon Gun

It has the incorrect icon, swapped with Spirit of the Perfected Spear.

135 Spirit of the Perfected Spear

It has the incorrect icon, swapped with Spirit of the Perfected Harpoon Gun.

136 Stability (Earth Elemental)

The description of this effect is inaccurate. It falsely states that it grants immunity to chilled and crippled; and it's missing launched, stunned, dazed, floated, sunk, and feared.

137 Starter Sword

The Slash skill lacks attack animation, but still inflicts damage on enemies.

138 Statue of Melandru (Cathedral of Verdance)

Sometimes the damaging area effect will not be correctly disabled despite players controlling all related temples. Players can attempt to circumvent this by being stealthed during the channel time.

139 Statue of Melandru (Graven Cay)

Sometimes the damaging area effect will not be correctly disabled despite players controlling all related temples. Players can attempt to circumvent this by being stealthed during the channel time.

140 Stealth
  • When a creature loses stealth during an action, from the point of view of clients who couldn't see the model while it was cloaked, the animation for that action will play from the start, or not at all, instead of playing from the frame corresponding with the moment at which it was revealed.
  • Losing either stealth, camouflage or the Hide in Shadows effect will cause the player to become visible, even if they still have any of those effects active when it ends (this happens even if the player did not get the Revealed effect). If the remaining effect is stealth, thief traits and skills will still benefit from it, but the player will be visible until a new invisibility effect has been applied.
141 Stealth (Mine Defusing Kit)

Using profession skills does not end the effect as stated

142 Steel Sword

The masterwork Giver's recipe produces an item with an incorrect name. The item should be called "Giver's Steel Sword" instead of "Giver's Iron Sword".

143 Stolen Unstable Explosives

The effect is not removed by dropping the bundle. Once it expires, you will use Place Bomb and generate an explosion. The bundle may then may be picked up and reused in this manner until it times out and disappears on its own.

144 Stop the skritt burglar before it escapes with the treasure

Since September 9, 2014, some dropped bags from the Skritt Burglar cannot be looted.

145 Stronghold of the Faithful

If the projections are too close together and one dies a split second before they merge, there is a possibility of both phantasms disappearing but no Insidious Projection will spawn. A stack of Xera's Embrace will still be stripped.


Sometimes the core may get stuck in one spot. It will not move even if skills specifically target it. The phase will end once a Retriever Projection touches it.

146 Stun break

Using a stunbreak while dodging will not remove the Daze effect.

147 Sub-Lieutenant Macy

The dignity dialogue tree incorrectly uses the Order of Whispers text, instead of a response that matches the previous line.

148 Subvert (The Ruined City of Arah)

The skill fact for the effect lists it as a projectile combo finisher in the chat log.

149 Sunspear Paragon Support

The cooldown debuffs of this item and Pocket Jade Armor cancel each other out, making it impossible to summon more than one at the same time.

150 Superior Rune of Lyssa
  • The level 6 bonus does not work with Tornado.
  • The level 6 bonus will not function if you are interrupted within the one second delay between using your elite skill and the stated effect of the bonus.
151 Superior Rune of Snowfall

Despite the visual effect of the sixth bonus resembling frozen ground and icy winds on the location of impact, the pile of snow is an area of effect that follows the player.

152 Superior Rune of the Fire

Agony causes the 4th bonus to activate upon each pulse while not in an encounter with an enemy.

153 Superior Rune of the Tempest

Gained healing from the sixth bonus is currently not listed in the battle log but is applied correctly.

154 Superior Sigil of Demon Slaying

This sigil gives no boost to Demons, but does give the correct +3% boost to all other mobs. [5]

155 Support the Durmand Priory against the centaurs

If you stand south or southwest of Bink while giving her Durmand Priory Books, you will get no credit since you are technically not in the renown heart's area.

156 Swashbuckler's Cove

Sometimes the veteran ghost required to progress the jumping puzzle does not spawn, making it impossible to continue.

157 Synthesis Output 1

Does not increase the number of harvests from lumber synthesizers as it starts with 4.

158 Tangled Depths (achievements)

Potoni Masher is not being awarded consistently for defeating Potoni the Massive.

159 Tangled Paths (achievements)

The challenge mote for Dancer in the Dark does not appear reliably and sometimes disappears during the first cutscene. If you have trouble, try to activate it before speaking to Caithe. If that does not work, try guesting to any other world before entering the instance.

160 Tank

Despite their obviously mechanical origins, kills obtained using the tank weapons will contribute to the staff master achievement in the Weapon Master achievement track.

161 Taunt
  • Taunt does not interrupt NPCs, thus they might continue to use skills while taunted.
  • Condition removal sometimes does not return control to the character upon removing Taunt.
  • Players with a Defiance bar from controlling an Enchanted Armor will have their target locked on to the source of Taunt (but are free to move and use skills), even though the defiance bars should disable the effect. It is unknown whether other sources of defiance bars have this same behavior, or if it affects enemies.[verification requested]
162 Tempest

When swapping to a new attunement, the overload's initial cooldown is sometimes slightly longer than normal. This bug emerged with the introduction of the Weaver. This bug only occurs when swapping attunements immediately after finishing the overload's cast.

163 Test Crystal Lodestone Facets

You can't have Quartz Crystal in your inventory. If you have, the point won't offer you the option to interact the crystal, only to transform quartz crystals.

164 Thaw Elixir
  • If you do not have enough ingredients, attempting to brew the elixir may remove the Grawl Firestone from your inventory without granting the Cold Resistance effect.
  • If you log out or do not finish the story while Cold Resistance is active and it runs out, you may have to restart the entire storyline to make a new one.
165 The Aidan Journal

In game, this book is labeled Aiden, not Aidan.

166 The Art of Tanning: Longbow String Edition

While the NPC claims that he wants 10 Thick Strings twice, he means 10 Coarse Strings the second time.

167 The Art of Tanning: Short Bow String Edition

While the NPC claims that he wants 10 Thick Strings twice, he means 10 Coarse Strings the second time.

168 The Elder Dragons

The dates for Zhaitan and Kralkatorrik are tagged "AD" instead of "AE".

169 The Flameseeker Prophecies III: The Chosen
  • Holding Quartz Crystal will prevent the necessary text from appearing at places of power like Gwen's Grave.
  • Being a necromancer will prevent you from interacting with Rashenna's Grave.
170 The Ley-Line Run

Interacting repeatedly with the golden markings allows the player to use skills multiple times, albeit with a cooldown[verification requested]

171 The Malestrom

The item name is a misspelling of "Maelstrom". The skin name is spelled correctly.

172 The Sepulcher

The doors to get in and out of The Sepulcher seem to not animate as being opened or closed. You can still walk though them when they are closed.

173 The Spider Queen

The Spider Queen offers her hero challenge event in Blue Alpine Borderlands, rewarding the Green Borderlands' southern hero challenge if completed.

174 Thesis on Studied Speed (effect)

The description for the applied effect is missing.

175 Thoughtless Potion

The horns are barely visible on asura characters, and are completely obscured by certain hairstyles and most headwear.

176 Thunderhead Peaks Reward Track

In the WvW Reward Track the item  Basic Reward Track Loot Box.png Siege Blueprint Case replaced the 38th reward ( Wood Shipment.png Wood Shipment) instead of correctly replacing the 39th reward ( Tome of Knowledge.png Tome of Knowledge).

177 Toy Roller Beetle

May be invisible, where only the name can be seen.

178 Trading Post
  • Sometimes players are unable to use the Buy button, i.e. it is greyed out. Restarting the game usually resolves this issue.
  • The UI only displays the most recent 2000 buy and sell offers.
  • Sometimes players do not receive the coin from the sale of items in the delivery box. Restarting the game usually resolves this issue.
179 Treasury

Approximately at Guild Level 21, the Treasury collection shows a non-existing Guild Upgrade named 'Guild Hall Music: Central Tyrian Themes'. The asked for items can't be put into the Treasury, though, making this a completely visual issue.

180 Tribute to Leading Grade

Misspelled as "Tribute to Leading Grade" instead of "Tribute to Leaning Grade" in-game.

181 Troll Tooth Necklace

This necklace is classified as an accessory.

182 Turret (environmental weapon)

Many turrets in Plains of Ashford will automatically boot you off after a second or two.

183 Uhiwi's Bones

Normally when hovering over the key for the world map, missing points of interest are highlighted. Uhiwi's Bones are not highlighted.

184 Ultra Shiny Short Bow

The weapon is positioned too high when stowed.

185 Ultra Shiny Staff

The weapon is positioned too high when stowed.

186 Unchained Devastator

Its basic attack does not have a name; it appears as a single . in the combat log.

187 Unchained Illusionist

The two skills that appear while under the effects of Intelligence have no specified name; they appear as a single dot in the combat log.

188 Undertaker Diarmad
