World boss

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Tyria is rife with powerful creatures. Defeat them to receive chests containing rare equipment and crafting materials. You're guaranteed a rare item at least once a day.

— Level 72 rewards.

Shadow Behemoth, one of the first world bosses a player might encounter.

World bosses are special event bosses encountered throughout the open world of Tyria that spawn a ground chest (that can be looted once per character per day) and award players with one bonus chest containing a piece of rare or exotic gear (limited to once per account per day) when defeated. Additionally, the ground chest spawned by world bosses contain varying quantities of Dragonite Ore, a crafting material that can be refined and used to make ascended equipment. World boss events attract many players and are a good way to earn various kinds of high-level equipment and upgrade components. However, characters must be a minimum level of 40 to receive any rare rarity gear[1] from the event.
