06/11/2019—June 11 Release Notes

Destabilized Magic

The Mystic Forge skritt want to help defeat Qadim by providing adventurers with new "shinies," helping them look their best while battling this dangerous foe. Of course, nothing in life is ever free. Qadim's destabilization of magic has resulted in daily ley-line nodes briefly forming near the remnants of world bosses. Gather condensed ley-line essence from these nodes, along with a few other materials, and combine them in the Mystic Forge to create these shiny new weapons.

  • This event runs from 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) on June 11 to 1:00 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) on June 25. After this time period, condensed ley-line essence can be purchased with gaeting crystals from Glenna in Ahdashim or from the Magnetite Exchange Operative in the Lion's Arch Aerodrome.
  • Combine Condensed Ley-Line Essences, Charged Cores, Elder Wood Logs, and Quartz Crystals in the Mystic Forge to create Shiny and Ultra Shiny weapons.
  • Collect all of the weapons to earn the Ultra Shiny title!

Living World


  • Improved behavior when mounting the skyscale in midair after using updrafts and other traversal abilities.
  • The skyscale will no longer enter the wall-cling state when hitting a wall if it is descending using the Mount Ability 2 key.
  • Fixed a bug in which the skyscale could continue playing its wall-cling animation after using a waypoint.
  • Fixed a bug in which the skyscale's energy-gain rate could be higher than intended after mounting in midair.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented skyscales from blinking.

Bug Fixes

  • War Eternal: Fixed an issue in which Aurene would fail to appear at the beginning of the Descent instance for some players.

World Polish

  • Fixed a bug that caused incorrect objective text to appear in the "Defeat Ysshi Hessani and Pek Rakt Grag" event in the Domain of Vabbi.
  • Reduced the time Augury Rock is open by 10 minutes, shortening the wait for the "Disperse the wild magic that escaped from Augury Rock" event in Elon Riverlands.


  • The Mute Player Alerts sound option will now mute the alert chime accompanying some targeted skills (mostly found in raids and story instances) and the alert chime that accompanies the application of many special action skills.


The Hidden City of Ahdashim

After the events in the Mystic Forge, Qadim has returned home to the Hidden City of Ahdashim to usurp a great power. Find the Key and the cardinals for guidance into the hallowed city walls, and save not just the djinn but the entire world from Qadim's master scheme.


  • A new item, the Spirit Banner, is available from the Mystic Forge in exchange for 25 Spirit Shards.
  • Various WvW blueprint denominations have been removed from the Mystic Forge, as those multiples were made obsolete by the ability to select how many players wish to purchase.
  • Fixed a bug in which some ascended raid reward containers did not stack.
  • Fixed a bug in which Exquisite Serpentite Jewels did not have attribute text.


New Items and Promotions

  • The new Shimmerwing Skyscale Skin is available in the Style category of the Gem Store for 2,000 gems.
  • The new Skyscale Hatchling Mining Tool with the Glyph of Alchemy is now available in the Utility category of the Gem Store for 1,000 gems.
  • For a limited time, the Crystalline Dragon Wings Backpack Glider Combo returns to the Style category of the Gem Store for 700 gems.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed some texture stretching on the Skyscale Chair.

Bug Fixes:

  • Raids—The Key of Ahdashim: The confusion applied by Cardinal Adina’s Seismic Suffering skill was doing more damage than expected. The confusion will no longer do any damage on skill activation.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Glyph of Alchemy to reward unexpected materials when it was applied to the Unbound Magic Mining Beam or Unbound Magic Harvesting Blast gathering tools.
