Hello all! Come help us kill the World Bosses to save Tyria! 

Since I have so much fun running through all the world bosses to get daily loot drops, I thought "this would be even more fun with family!" So, I'm happy to kick off a weekly World Boss Hunt. It will occur on Mondays at 9am Pacific.

Any level is welcome, but you'll earn the best rewards if you're level 80. You must have the waypoints open (see list below). Due to the limited time between world bosses, we will not be able to run people to unlock waypoints. However, I will be happy to help you unlock them at other times! We will be doing nearly all of the bosses except Triple Worm. We will be chatting in Discord Guild Wars 2 event channel.

For the morning: 0ur initial meeting waypoint will be promptly at 9:00 at the Tequatl the Sunless [&BNABAAA=] in Sparkfly Fen. As soon as we kill one boss, we'll quickly collect the reward chest, and then we will be moving immediately to the next world boss. Come early 10-15 minutes) if you want to make sure to be in the same map as the main group.


Here is the list of all the bosses we'll be sending off to the Mists. These are not in the order that they will spawn, but this should help you make sure you have all the waypoints opened up.

The world bosses for low level players (note that these are not in order of spawning):

Jungle Wurm [&BEEFAAA=] Twilight Arbor wp (waypoint)
Shadow Behemoth [&BPcAAAA=] Godslost wp
Svanir Shaman [&BMIDAAA=] Krennak's Homestead wp
Fire Elemental [&BEcAAAA=] Muridian wp

The bosses for those at higher levels:
The Shatterer [&BE4DAAA=] Lowland Burns wp
Modniir Ulgoth [&BLEAAAA=] Cloven Hoof wp (alternate wp since this one is often contested: Barricade Camp wp [&BK0AAAA=] )
Golem Mark II [&BNQCAAA=] Old Sledge Site wp
Karka Queen [&BNUGAAA=] Pearl Islet wp (recommend having all the waypoints unlocked in Southsun Cove)
Claw of Jormag [&BHoCAAA=] Earthshake wp
Taidha Covington [&BKgBAAA=] Laughing Gull wp
Megadestroyer [&BM0CAAA=] Maelstrom's wp (alternate wp since this one is often contested: Avernan wp [&BM8CAAA=] )

Tequatl the Sunless [&BNABAAA=]  (go to the waypoint to the north if this one is contested).

I hope to see you there, and may the Six watch over us.

Thanks for making the inaugural running of the event so fun. You all made my job as a first-time event leader easy. :)

 

Just a quick note: I am taking my son to college the week of Aug 17th, so the World Bosses will have a week off from being sent to their demises, unless I can get stable internet and the family can survive without me for 3 hours of gaming on vacation--or someone wants to guest-host.

On the 24th, I have to be at a required bariatric class at 7:30 server time. I anticipate being home by 9am for the event, but sometimes the classes run a little long. I will be there, but I may start a little late that day. Not to worry, however, we will definitely send the bosses to the Mists!

The event will be starting on time today (24 Aug), since my class for today got rescheduled to September. I'm looking forward to seeing you all again! I missed you all last week while I was away from the computer!!

I have to go to a bariatric surgery class this Monday, September 21st along with a routine doc appointment and and exercise class. As a result, I will not be able to host our group in sending the World Bosses to their well-deserved demises. However, I will definitely be back on the 28th! I took the event off the calendar for the 21st so that other leaders have an open time slot to host an event.

Hi all! Just a quick heads up: I have my last bariatric surgery class tomorrow. It's supposed to go from 10:30-11:30, but they've been running late repeatedly. Last class, they didn't get out until noon. So, I moved the event back a half hour for the 12th only. After that, I'm done with those classes! Woot! We will start with the Fire Elemental and meet at this waypoint: Fire Elemental [&BEcAAAA=]

Thanks Kitty!! :) I have such fun running these with everyone, there's no way I could cancel entirely! :D

After some good feedback and looking at the World Boss timers, we'll be starting promptly at 9:00 am at the Lowland Burns waypoint [&BE4DAAA=] for the Shatterer from now on. This will give us less 'farbling time' as we get started, but it will cut off about a half hour of time where we'd been waiting for the last 2 bosses to spawn. I will run the Shatterer an extra time this week (19 October) if people miss this post today and need to kill the little bugger.

I ran through all our world bosses today to see if anything had changed. Yes, they certainly had. Here's a quick rundown of what I noticed:

1. There wasn't a timer on Shadow Behemoth. I suspect that is a bug and that it will be back in an update some time. He dies more slowly, so taking down the portals as quickly as possible is essential so that we make the next World Boss in time. One thing that is bugged: some of my skills wouldn't hit the portals--despite standing right in front of them face on, when I fired the skill, I got a pop up saying I didn't have line of sight. That was a bit annoying.

2. They took the boxes away for Golem Mark II!!!! Ugh! I tried to find the spot with the least amount of dying involved, and I think I found one. If you have group heals and/or a mass resurrection skill, you'll definitely need them, along with a stability skill.

3. Svanir Shaman (Maw) now moves around the area instead of staying in one spot. You'll need a stability skill because he now has a knock back skill.

4. Megadestroyer moves around a lot more, too. He actually came up on the land on the north side of the lava lake, something I hadn't seen before. Stability helped here.

5. Karka Queen dies REALLY fast. She was down only 4 minutes after the spawn time. In fact, I never made it to the event to see if anything changed--she was dead before I got there.

6. Taidha moves around a lot more, too. I thought the group had her tethered down, but she still darted around and then teleported a couple times inside the ship. Group heals and stability helped a lot here, because she loves to one-shot kill our friends and loved ones.

7. For Jungle Worm, killing the vet husks so that Papa worm doesn't feed on them is now more important. He heals back about 25% health eating those things. I'll check the stats to find out exactly how much it is.

8. Jormag seemed to melt a bit easier. The fight stayed otherwise the same. Yes, you'll still get frozen to death fairly often.

9. Shatterer has not learned how to turn his head, thank goodness. After I saw the boxes missing at Golem, I worried that Shatterer would be able to hammer us on the ledge, but it's still relatively safe.

10. Fire Ele stayed pretty much the same, although being on the platforms when Rooba's cleaning golem burps pretty much guarantees death instead of survival.

11. The battle with Ulgoth stayed pretty much the same. He continues to monologue endlessly, despite having been sent Peter's Evil Overlord List. He clearly has not read "Despite its proven stress-relieving effect, I will not indulge in maniacal laughter. When so occupied, it's too easy to miss unexpected developments that a more attentive individual could adjust to accordingly."

Due to the US time change, the starting point and rotation of the World Boss Hunt has changed. Now, we will be starting with Golem Mark II [&BNQCAAA=]  at the Old Sledge Site Waypoint in Mount Maelstrom.

Hi all! Since the World Bosses have the annoying habit of plaguing us daily, we need to protect Tyria from them more often! I've added more killing time for the evening folks to get a chance to save us all from the baddies. The time is set for 5pm server for now (which is about an hour after reset), but will likely change to about 6:30 or 6:45 pm server on January 11th, since I realized I set it up smack-dab on top of my Monday evening choir practice, and choir is too awesome to pass up.

The first boss for the evening folks will be announced Monday when I know for sure when the first on in the cycle is.

Quick note for Monday _morning_. I will likely be late--my son has a doctor appointment that we are unable to reschedule. I will try to find someone to co-host for the first few bosses til we make it home. :)

Help wanted: Someone who can host the Morning World Boss hunt on December 28th. I got roped into working that day. Since staying employed is A Good Thing, and I have a new boss, I decided the prudent thing was to work that day since I'll be off that Friday for New Year's Day. I'll be home in time for the evening edition.

Also, when I set up the Monday nights, I had a brain cramp and forgot about choir practice. I need a co-leader for the event during the weeks when I have practice (mid-January to mid-May, and mid-September to late November). I'd move it to another night, but there are no evening openings that mesh with my schedule and the events already on the calendar. I would need someone to cover from 5pm-roughly 6:30-ish pm, and then I can pick up from there when I get home. We're doing a piece this spring that the choir mistress described as a 'choral beast', which means I'll need to make it to every practice to keep up with the pros (I'm a good singer but definitely not pro).

I'll be happy to show you the ropes if you're interested. It's a very easy event to lead.

Hi all! Bear will be covering for me for the December 28th morning run. I have to work. Staying employed is A Good Thing. Plus, I'm trying to keep our production numbers up so that when the store's lease is up in 18 months, they want to keep the store there.

We're starting the Tuesday evening World Boss train with Karka Queen! We'll jump over immediately to Golem as soon as Karka Queen is down.

All right my dear family, I had to move the afternoon/evening boss run to another night besides Tuesday--it started too late for me (finishing at midnight my time), and I need the Guild Commendations from Fog's Tuesday runs to get banners for my events. :) I moved the event to Friday afternoons. The Monday boss train remains at same Bat-time, same Bat-channel.

Monday, 22 Feb's morning train is cancelled--I have to get the car worked on, and it's the only day off this week that I  can do it. :(

We will be back on next week at the normal date and time!!

For Fridays: we'll move back to 3pm, and I may have to stop at 5pm. This is at hubby's request. We've been married 25 years, and I'd like to make it to 26, and if a bit of a time change keeps him happy, that's what I do. :) Thanks for understanding.

All right, I HOPE this is the last time change! We're moving the Friday/Wednesday evening train to Wednesday afternoon. The last few weeks have been rough for us, and the only way I've found out something didn't work was to try it and discover, "darn it, that time is not working!" The Wednesday afternoon time slot gives me some time to get dinner for the family, help my daughter with homework, and keep hubby happy with Friday nights cleared up again.

The hell known as 'tax season' is upon us. I have to finish mine this week. No gaming for me on 11 April until I finish them or my eyeballs fall out, whichever comes later. Tyria will have to wait to be saved until next week. >.<

Hi all! This latest patch from 19 April is BIG!! If you're coming to events in the next few days and haven't downloaded it yet, give yourself a little extra time before an event to have enough time for it to load.

As always, there is no requirement in the World Boss events to be at every single boss. Whether you can only make 1 or all 10 or 11, you are most welcome! We all have lots of responsibilities, and this event is meant to be low-stress, high loot, and lots of fun. :)

Hi all! We're starting with Tequatl instead of Shatterer now. Teq has better loot. If you want to be on the same map as us, come a bit early to the event so we end up on the same map. I will be going there about 15-20 minutes to help the other Teq leaders get groups positioned for a successful kill.

If our map is full, keep trying to get in. People die and leave all the time. If you just can't get in, stay in the map you're on and take down Teq with the group there. You will still get credit for the boss as long as you're on one of the maps, even if you can't make it into the one our group is in at that same moment.

Hi all!

I just wanted to let you know that the event will be on hiatus until I make it back into game regularly. I've had GW2 burnout for awhile, and this has absolutely nothing to do whatsoever with anyone in the family, so please don't think that!! My family got hit with my sister's breakup with her fiance (it's a great thing for her, but she needed TLC to get through it), my daughter's epilepsy increasing, and my daughter needing a LOT of help with geometry and chemistry, which are frustrating her endlessly. We're spending a lot of time on homework every night. Like a couple hours.

Hubby also wants to game in SWTOR. We're having a lot of fun doing that together, and with the limited time we've had in the last year with him working insane amounts of overtime, I'm taking whatever time I can with him.

I will be back for the Halloween festivities and hope to do some of those maze runs with you all. Thanks for making the World Boss Hunt so much fun!
