Dagger Storm works[edit]

Dagger Storm works on the lightning pulses on the stairs, BUT as you ascend the stairs, it shoves the bars back up the stairs in front of you, and it doesn't last the duration of the climb, so shadow step is also very useful here. --71.53.91.111 08:11, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Warriors greatsword skill whirlwind avoids the bars as well. As do normal dodges.Blackout15 13:03, 18 November 2012 (UTC

Achievement[edit]

The explorers achievement to not die from falling seems to be mis-worded or is bugged. I have not died on the jumping portions but i did die to one of the bosses and i did not receive the achieve. Another time i didn't die at all but was put into the downed state after falling off the platforms and i didn't receive the achieve that time either. Can anyone confirm the achieve is working?

Lore[edit]

Post-Apocalyptic Rata Sum? Rata Sum's ultimate future? --76.87.124.104 16:50, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

"the future can change in the blink of an eye."Avatar of the Tree, A Light in the Darkness (tl: I'd say it's a possible future, just as the whole Infinity Ball storyline and A Light in the Darkness shows a glimpse of possible futures) Konig/talk 18:24, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
This fractal has a really eerie feel to it. Makes me feel "What the hell is going on", one of the best story feelings :) Good work anet, can't wait for more. User MadSkillz1o1 sig2.PNG MadSkillz1o1 16:02, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
The cat golems made me think of a crazy old cat lady. I think maybe everyone else died/left and the one remaining asura built a bunch of cat golems to keep them company. Agreed on the really eerie feeling too. Deesa seemed to know where it was as soon as she saw it, but obviously isn't going to tell us, but I'd love to know the story behind this place.

Killing order first room[edit]

Wouldn't it be easier to kill the rabbit first, especially since it onehits a character? It doesn't have that much HP anyway, and you are pretty much next to it already when you destroy the generator. So the killing order in my opinion should be: Champion Rabbit, Veteran Bandit Saboteur, Champion Flame Legion Fire Shaman, Champion Ettin. 80.112.204.26 07:48, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

I concur, and made changes the page. Aside, this is a hilarious tribute to Monty Python's Holy Grail rabbit.--71.95.73.74 10:58, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Chest[edit]

I heard multiple times from various people that if you kill the rabbit last, you get a chest Yes4me 21:53, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

I just did this fractal on level 10, and we killed the rabbit last by kiting it around the room. We did not get any sort of reward, either chest or otherwise.--74.133.156.83 02:27, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
The rabbit last thing is a troll lie. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 78.134.129.0 (talk) at 09:11, 22 February 2013 (UTC).

Poison Room Bug[edit]

Don't want to edit the wiki page as I am new to this, but I've encountered a strange bug several times in Old Tom's room. If you fail and have crystals left over from your first attempt, the main console switch to clear the constant poison does not work. The only solution that I've found is to completely restart the fractal. (I was attempting a solo run through on a necromancer and got him to half health before I died, but I'm not sure if it's because I was alone that this particular bug appeared).

It's actually quite an interesting bug that has been present ever since Fractals were introduced. Basically, the main fan will appear as if the two batteries are charged, but it's just a graphical bug. They're empty (due to the wipe that reset the room), and you need to bring the tears to the both batteries in order to charge it. It's simply a graphical issue, the function stays the same - get in, add the two tears and trigger the fan. —Ventriloquist 14:53, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Old Tom Bug[edit]

Old Tom glitch/bug that will never be fixed by Anet. The main fan will appear as if the two batteries are charged, but it's just a graphical bug. They're empty (due to the wipe that reset the room), and you need to bring the tears to the both batteries in order to charge it. It's simply a graphical issue, the function stays the same

How come this hasn't been fixed? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 97.120.149.83 (talkcontribs) at 17:58, 20 October 2016 (UTC).

Soundtrack[edit]

The boss fight in this fractal has a unique bongo-like sound track. WHAT IS IT? I have to know. Its my favorite music in game! Irisol (talk) 19:30, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Consoles[edit]

I ran through this on level 4 and thought I'd be blocked at the consoles because I was on my own--but it turned out I could just run past them and straight into the fight with Old Tom. Has anyone else had that? Rotheche (talk) 08:00, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

That's unusual. Perhaps it detected that you were soloing and skipped the console part, since it's a bit difficult to solo it, without being a thief? —Ventriloquist 08:26, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
