06/25/2019—June 25 Release Notes
It's time for Dragon Bash! It wouldn't be a proper celebration without your attendance. Join me in Hoelbrak for another moot for the ages! There will be tests of strength, racing, food, song, and most importantly—ale.
I'll see you there. Unless, of course, you don't enjoy fun.
Join the celebration in Hoelbrak—the new home of the revamped Dragon Bash festival! Celebrate Tyria's resistance against the Elder Dragons while engaging in a variety of new and returning festive games, including the following:
- Dragon Arena: Show off your dragon-fighting prowess against lifelike holograms in the Dragon Arena, or take on a more difficult gauntlet in Dragon Arena Survival.
- Hologram Stampede: The fighting continues in the Hologram Stampede, a map-wide scramble to clear the Hoelbrak countryside of deadly enemies.
- Pinata Bashing: Master the tradition of destroying dragon pinatas in the Pinata Bashing adventure.
- Dragon Bash Rally: Speed around Hoelbrak in a new mounted race, the Dragon Bash Rally.
- Moa Race: Tigg's famous racing moas return in a new moa race event. Put your zhaitaffy on the line and cheer on the winner!
Complete daily festival achievements to earn the Dragon Basher daily achievement, contributing to the Party Commander achievement, which rewards your choice of holographic replica weapons based on the weapons wielded by a famous hero!
- Earn the official treat of Dragon Bash, zhaitaffy, to trade for festival prizes from vendors or craft new festive decorations for your guild hall. Be sure to save a few pieces to enjoy!
- Share in the celebration with new Dragon Bash reward tracks in PvP and WvW.
- The party rages for three weeks, from June 25 until July 16. Get bashing!
- Adjusted the positions and timing of some scenes in Hoelbrak to minimize overlap during Dragon Bash.
- Updated rewards in Dragonfall's Mistborn Coffers to give a broader variety of items.
- Fixed an issue in which certain accounts had unlocked a Corsair Boots skin but did not receive appropriate credit for the Visions of Dragonfall achievement. Players affected by this issue can now travel to Dragonfall to receive the missing progress.
The Key of Ahdashim
- Fixed a bug in Challenge Mode that caused Qadim's Rain of Chaos skill to initially target the player chosen to utilize Unleash.
- Festival Tokens from Festival of the Four Winds can now be stored in the wallet. Existing Tokens can be consumed to move them to the wallet.
- Zhaitaffy can now be consumed in bulk.
- Updated the contents of the Dragon Coffers rewarded by Dragon Bash.
- Elixir Gun—Fumigate: Fixed a bug that caused this skill to cleanse conditions from allies at a range of 600 while attacking at a range of 450. It will now attack enemies and cleanse allies at a range of 600. Cleaned up the visual effect to better line up with the increased attack range.
- Hard to Catch: Fixed a bug to prevent this trait from incorrectly granting swiftness on top of its other effects.
