Dragonstand DC

Hello guys,
today me and my girlfriend participated in dragonstand. She wanted to get the wyvern but dced short after we finished and she cannot get back to the map. Does this mean she has to do the meta from the beggining to get it? Thanks

    Yes she will have to do it over, probably from the beginning. The thing with Dragonstand is that the map is often full if theres an organised squad with a lfg (you are not even guaranteed you end up in same map after map reset even when organised in a squad and being on a same map (one that closes)). If she somehow ends up in a map thats not full and is halfway the meta or at the end then she ofcourse does not have to do the full meta from the beginning but its not something you can predict.

    I am not sure how long it takes for the completed meta map to close otherwise she could get in your map when all meta is finished (granted other players left and made room and you are in the map so she can join in your map version and is faster than the map close timer).

    You cannot get to finished map

    Yeah the catch with Dragon stand is that the map locks itself and closes after 15 minutes. This is a defined "loot phase" for those who participated, and is there to prevent what happened with OctoVine. I think the only thing that stopped them from importing the idea to AB was all the Free Roam elements it would disrupt if they did a scheduled map purge.

    An on-going Dragon's Stand* meta instance cannot be entered after the Blighting Towers have been completed.
