For April Fools' Day 2013 ArenaNet made the two Annihilator quests from the previous two years available again. Unlike the previous years, no prank developer update notes were published.

Quests available[edit]


  • There were two Corporal Banes in Embark Beach that can be distinguished by selecting one of them and viewing your target display. One is identified by "Lvl 20" and the other "W20".
  • On the login screen announcements there was a "CLASSIFIED INFORMATION" message: "TGlzdGVuLC Bhbm Qgd W5kZXJz dG FuZC4g VG hhd CBBbm5 paG lsYXRv c iBnb 2xlbSBp cyBvdXQ gd Ghlcm UuIEl0 IGN hb id0IG JlIGJ h cmdh aW5lZ CB3 aX RoL iBJdCBj YW4n d CBiZ SByZWF zb25lZ C B3aX RoLi BJd C Bkb2 Vzbid0I GZlZWwgcGl 0eS wgb3 I gcmVtb3Jz ZSwg b3I gZmV hci4g QW5 kIGl 0IGFi c2 9s dXRl bHk gd2lsbC Bub 3Qgc 3RvcC wgZX Zlc iwg dW50aW w gU2Fy YWggY W5kIE d3Z W4 gYXJ lIGRl YWQu". This is Base64 encoded text and can be decoded to "Listen, and understand. That Annihilator golem is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until Sarah and Gwen are dead." This is based on Kyle Reese dialogue in The Terminator.
