Broad estuaries give the Orrian undead easy passage into Sparkfly Fen. A wave of Zhaitan's minions drove hylek refugees before it and captured vast territory. Wyld Hunt valiants and Vigil crusaders fight to regain control from an untiring enemy.

— In-game description

Sparkfly Fen is a coastal zone in the Maguuma Jungle. It is littered with Risen and ruins of both ancient Kryta and Orr. It serves as the main battleground against Zhaitan's forces, which are led by his dragon champion, Tequatl the Sunless.

Despite the fact that the hylek usually don't ally with each other, many hylek tribes whose grounds were destroyed by the Risen have joined together at the Zintl Holy Grounds, seeking guidance from their god Zintl.

Notes[edit]

  • According to lore and Tyrian geography, Sparkfly Fen isn't part of the Maguuma Jungle or surrounding areas. Nevertheless, it contributes to the Maguuma Explorer Achievement track.
  • The old loading screen was changed to its current dragon-theme in the 17th September 2013 update, to match the living world development regarding Tequatl the Sunless evolving.
  • In the far south, near the cliff-faces of Verarium Delves, is an area that resembles a typical jumping puzzle. However, there is no associated achievement with reaching the chest at the end.

Trivia[edit]

Gwwlogo.png The Guild Wars Wiki has an article on Sparkfly Swamp.
  • The zone name is something of a misnomer - a fen is an alkaline wetland, fed by groundwater; Sparkfly is most likely an intertidal wetland.
