It's unlike anything we've ever seen before, huge, vicious, and powerful.

Tactical Officer Smokemane

The Shatterer is a world boss in Blazeridge Steppes. It's also a rank given to a champion of Kralkatorrik. At any given time, there's only a single dragon of this rank. Once a Shatterer dies, the title moves on to a different dragon.[1] The Shatterers are hand-forged lieutenants created by Kralkatorrik, as opposed to corrupted beings like most branded.[2]

The Shatterers regularly patrol the Dragonbrand within Blazeridge Steppes, commanding the Branded within and is said to be one of the forces keeping the corruption active in the area. The Sentinels and Vigil are both actively fighting the Shatterers, killing them over time.

  • During the first Guild Wars 2 demo, players could fight against the Shatterer.
  • The fight was redesigned on January 26, 2016, previously players could just stack in a safe spot on the Shatterer's right, attacking it without being damaged themselves and the healing crystals could be ignored. New mechanics and achievements were added with the patch.
