Swamp thing

So I was in the swamp and there were lots of players with mounts and things so I stood around and looked at the outfits and such and then there was this dragon thing that everyone fought. My question is how did they know it was going to be there or how was it triggered?

  • I would guess the swamp was in Queensdale, or it was the beach/swamp kinda area of Sparkfly Fen's south-western corner. So you fought either the Shadow Behemoth or Tequatl the Sunless. Both are worldbosses, and they appear on a set time schedule. There's a timer showing the next few which are due at https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/World_boss

    They usually have a short pre-event that happens just before they spawn :)

    A dragon in a swamp with lot of players fighting it. Are you talking about Tequatl the Sunless in Sparkfly Fen? Anyway, that is a world boss, one of the many. World bosses spawn on a timer. Either check the Wiki to know when a boss is going to spawn and where, or (if you have crystals) buy the world boss device from the trading post. That will allow you to always know when a world boss is about to spawn and it will also allow you to teleport to the nearest waypoint.

  • yes -it was in Queensdale. will have to check that timer. thank you!

  • These large bosses are also known as World Bosses. There are plenty of them, and they give a decent reward.
