kind-of a fractal fail (pt 1)

There was this one time I joined a fractal group but I didnt see what the difficulty was and I somehow didnt die and completed it.

The fractal was inside a volcano and there was a yellow sideways square icon on the objective UI that looks like it modifies the monsters a bit. The thing was Mistlock Instability which makes the mobsters gain a buff on hit or something

Since I'm still new at doing fractals I also dont know which ones I should be doing or shouldnt be doing.🤔

At the end boss I got The floor is lava achievement 😁

    Do all of them beginning from 1 since its an achievement to do 1-25, 26-50, 51-75 and 76-100.
    You dont have to do a new thread each time you finish one tho =)

    I'm fractal level 11 and the difficulty I was in was 29

    Yes you can join any level aslong as someone in your party can open it.
    You will die to the agony damage on the higher ones if you dont have the resistance sloted in armor tho

    So I can join any level fractal as long if I dodge agony or get resistant to it. I dont know how to add resistance to my current gear though which is dungeon gear.

    Yes you can, can be hard to dodge some of the agony damage tho.
    You cant you need ascended gear to slot in agony resistance.
    You can upgrade the +1 you get from fractals into higher ones at 1 of the cat golems in fractal lobby.

    Quickest way to gain ascended is through jewellery and back items then buying agony from vendors inside the fractal hub. Jewellry/back items can be gained from;

    • Laurel vendors (I've kitted almost every toon out via laurel vendors with full ascended jewellry)
    • Guild commendation vendors
    • Maps like Bloodstone Fen, Ember Bay, Bitterfrost Frontier, Bjora Marches, Sirens Landing
    • Drops from fractals themselves (other ascended types drop here too) or bought with Fractal tokens
    • Certain story achievements in places like Heart of Thorns and Path of Fire
    • WvW

    Next easiest is weapons;

    • Crafting
    • Elite specialisation collection completions
    • Achievements
    • Tequatl/Drakkar
    • Fractals
    • WvW

    Armour is more often than not the last to get because it takes longer to craft, collect or drop.

    How much agony resistance you require for a given fractal level can be found on the Wiki

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    When does part 2 come out?

    If your team wins it's because of everyone else. If your team loses, blame the thief.
    ranger is OP but holo is more OP so its fine
    Why do this matter at all, you have people asking you why play so bad as fractal god?
    If they would pull that kitten on me, i would sue instantly. And i have enough time and money to finish that.
    Balance? More like a bunch of random nerfs done by interns.
