Talk:Special Ops: Dragon's Gullet

the code in here uses the first out of the three ciphering methods, and contain this text. you can use the decoder over and over, and you would not lose the page, but after talking again with the captain, she took the decoder with the plans in it, and sent my party to center north of dragon's gullet, Which has now level 20 charr, not sure of what kind. they dont drop any kind of charr carvings. you can subdue and mount a siege devourer pretty early, and two towards the end. after completing you are sent back to longeye's. you can't do it again, at least not without new battle plans. unknown:

  • is there a resurrection shrine in it, or could you fail?
No, failing return you to Longeye's Ledge. Vezz 01:05, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
  • could you go again if you failed? (without coming up with new battle plans?)
No, you cannot retry. Vezz 01:05, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
  • could it be a nice way for those without ch1 to see some of the ch1 areas?
  • could you ferry someone to the mission with you?

it's easy to the point of disappointment. Foo 00:01, 28 September 2007 (UTC)


WOW! 80 reputations!? ... nice joke... --YukoIshii 14:44, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Considering killing 100 Charr can get you, at bare minimum, 100 points if you're really unlucky with hunt bonuses; yep, nice joke. --Valshia 19:21, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Considering that you can't hunt bountys there. And now it's 200 reputation points, though VSync 01:42, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Most of those char are low level tho, there was a huge hoard of level 8's =P Also there is a mountable siege devourer in the map which makes it even easier and quicker to kill. Me'n my friend did it in about half an hour, mebbe a bit more because of idle wandering. I thought it was kinda fun, regardless 03:41, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Come on, this took 7 minutes, the whole thing was a joke, how could it be called "Special"--Ʀєʟʟɑ 04:10, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Just did this mission on Normal Mode, even though i have R8 vanguard title, odd thing was i didnt get any Vanguard points, not even the mission reward ( 1000 vanguard points) Saga [DOJO] 04:44, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Hard Mode[edit]

GG on the single group of 33 Charr. It's truly all about exploiting the AI. -- 05:03, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Let down.[edit]

Okay, so my Chinese guildie asks me "Wishes to explore Charr Encrypted Battle Plans?", so me and the leader join up with her and we do this in 7 minutes, wow. I mean, really. "Special" Ops???, No. This was really disappointing. If I'm going to go through the trouble of encrypting something just to read it, I shouldn't be able todo the quest in 7 minutes, slaughtering lvl 8 Charr.--Ʀєʟʟɑ 04:16, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Do it in HM. Foo 06:42, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Map Glitch[edit]

hahaha there's a glitch up in northeast where you can travel and increase your tyrian cartographer by .2-.3% ^.^--Ridz16 11:14, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

In which version of the quest? There's more than one for Dragon's Gullet... -- 12:11, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
click article and look at the map that's the one im talking about....--Ridz16 18:43, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
Wrong. This map is a piece of the current Dragon's Glitch map. No additional land has been added. So... you didn't explore all of Dragon's Gullet if you think this is extra land. :) UserDrago-sig.gif Drago 18:50, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
if you say so. :) i had a pve with 100% cartographer and i never went on that piece of land. Besides there is a trick to it cause normally you can't get in there because there's a "destroyed rez shrine blocking the path" --Ridz16 18:52, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Multiple Starting Points?[edit]

I just did this mini-mission and was ported near the zone-in to Dragon's Gullet from Flame Temple Corridor. I couldn't reach the area shown in the map on the page as it was blocked off by debris on the road. I ended up circling around the north-western lake until killing enough to complete the objective.

I suppose there might actually be multiple closed off areas where you can randomly start from, maybe one for each lake.

I also ran across several Charr Stalker Lords and a Charr Mind Lord, although I never saw a Titan. Maybe The Titan Source affects the spawns as I had that quest active. That Sounds Risky | 08:33, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Saw a third starting point today, along the top of the zone. Had to go clockwise around the northeastern lake. 23:50, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Somebody might wanna put a tag about this page needing to be rewritten. Idk how to do that Waar Kijk Je Naar 10:21, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Multiple Siege Devourers[edit]

When I did this mission there were like 3 or 4 siege devourers, but the article says there is only 1. Is this a mistake or does it change? (Satanael 06:44, 21 February 2009 (UTC))

Ditto. The walkthrough is a bit misleading. -- 16:26, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

The quest region[edit]

What region does the journal log this quest under? I don't have access to the Charr Homelands yet, so cannot check myself.

All Special Ops missions are under "Ascalon" --Mystisteel 22:32, 10 April 2009 (UTC)


After killing it made me think of completing a mission in Grand Theft Auto, maybe add it to trivia? 11:26, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Chest Glitch[edit]

I got a purple Cane with no mods at all from a chest in this mission. That doesn't normally happen with Ascalonian Chests does it? -- User Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 08:09, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Map Bug[edit]

I was in the northeast corner of the map doing the quest and had gotten to the last group. It looked easier to hit them from the side than head on, so I went south to look. There was some junk in the road but I didn't think anything of it at the time. After passing it I realized that the route I wanted to take was blocked so I decided head on would have to do. It was then that I realized I couldn't get back. Part of my party was on my side of the blockage, the rest on the other, including my pet. I tried all kinds of ways but could not get back and could not finish the quest. See image here: Image:Special_ops_gullet_map_bug.jpg Zarenda Mal 09:03, 27 April 2012 (UTC)


Starting in the centre of the northern edge.

I think its high time we should be getting some maps for this stuff. 19px Chieftain Alex 17:49, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

EXP missing?[edit]

So a friend and I just completed this in HM. I was at rank 8, a mere 91 exp from hitting rank 9. She was at rank 5. When it ended, she got the 1000 rep and got to rank 6, but I didn't get any rep. It was definitely HM. Any ideas why I missed out on the rep? If it helps, it was my decoded plans, but she was party leader. -- LAZ (talk) 05:36, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Ouch, bad luck. Sounds like the notes section needs to be revised to say "There is no reward if your Ebon Vanguard rank is 8 or higher." -Chieftain Alex 12:19, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
