Master of the Mountain .. Fractal

So finally a new fractal is incoming! When I first read it would be about a mountain I thought maybe journeying beneath one, but they said something about mountain climbing boots so I assume it will be more like Cliffside, continually going higher and higher. Any guesses where or when this might be, or what it's about?

I'd rather keep going.. wherever the wind takes us

    Mmmm, I was thinking on after deeps of deldrimor or maybe Elona Mountains something after defeat Amala, but with the titan on freedom what is the point on going up? And already have chaos, same map different side, but a thing I'm really sure is I'm exited :) finally after years :D

    I hope it will be a real fractal not a dream like other stuff

    Dream? It's all in the mist, technically none of it is "real"

    I mean like i hope they really add it
    Not just a thing to say and heat up community and threads
    Most of stuff anet says they ll add nvr comes out

  • When they give explicit schedules like this, it's a safe bet that they'll follow through. Hooray for new fractal content!!

  • And it will have a CM, so expect a very hard Fractal at launch even on it's normal version, but i hope it's Shatered Observatory/Nightmare levels of hard, not annoying like Siren's Reef and Deepstone for example hehe.

    My bet is on Asgeir Dragonrender's story. The boss could be Frostfang. If we don't get this as a fractal, we'll probably get it as a Vision of the Past anyway.

    Don't think it will be a dwarven fractal, we already got Deepstone after all. We could get a new open world dwarven zone though, there's potential for that.

    They didn’t say it will have a CM. Though I wouldn’t be surprised

    It was said by Andrew Gray back in february - https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/97028/a-message-from-andrew-gray/p1
    Hope they didn't forget about it.

    Watch his story become a raid that next to noone will play.
    Just like they did with Saul D'Alessio.

    Don't think you have to worry about that, seeing as raids are pretty much no longer in development anymore.

    Given the most recent quote, it does seem no raids are in active development for the time being. Hence I'd expect the Frostfang battle to be a vision of the past. Possibly a fractal, but it fits with the theme of the visions

    More people on efficiency completed raid w4 than the recent story episode. I know that you hate every form of challenging content since you are not even a fan of t4 fractals and rather stick to t3 but not everyone feels that way.
    I just hope the endboss isnt going to teleport around every 2sec like all the other new bosses. Damage needs to be avoidable with skill aswell. "Heal through everything" should not work at all but it became design direction for last releases.

    Although to be fair it’s over 3 years old and many people are waiting for voice acting in the new episode. Curious how it compares to bloodstone fen or ember bay

    I hope this fractal takes 2 hours, and then they revamp all old fractals to also take 2 hours. I want doing fractal dailies to take 6 hours

    Why? If you want to spend 6 hours in there just run more than the daily

    If it was 2h for the same rewards i wouldnt do them
    I do 100 and 99 cms and t4 somedays and it only takes less than 1h. And i earn nearly 20g not counting ascended loots
