Quest information[edit]




The best strategy is to start out at Grendich Courthouse and travel to Flame Temple Corridor, killing any bosses encountered along the way for extra morale. Alternatively, it is possible to start from Yak's Bend to have a party of 6 members, but this requires to make your way through Traveler's Vale, Ascalon Foothills and Diessa Lowlands. In Flame Temple, you will encounter the Charr Lords. Pull them away from the patrols and take them on one group at a time, then continue on to the Dragon's Gullet.

Consider maxing out your morale before venturing into the lake itself.

Enter the lake from the southeastern shore, northwest of the resurrection shrine that makes for a convenient restart spot should you wipe while fighting the Titan Lords. A pair of Hand and Fist of the Titans will pop out of the tar to greet you.

In the lake, you will have to deal with the constant 30% reduction in speed from the Tar environment effect.

After you deal with the popups, you need to take out a number of titan patrols that circle the bosses. The patrols are made up of more Hands and Fists, and also Sparks of the Titans and Risen Ashen Hulks; the sparks should be your priority target as they are capable of some extremely lethal Fire Magic. The Risen Hulks are the least dangerous, and should be left for last as they split into another pair of Hand and Fist when they die.

A second group of pop-up warrior titans will greet you in the southwest corner of the lake.

After the lake has been cleared of patrols, it is time to complete the main objective. In the center of the lake are three Titan bosses: the Titan Lords you were sent here to dispatch. Among their ranks is a small group of Charr Lords. A good tactic is to kill the Charr Lords first then go for the Titans.

Skill recommendations[edit]

  • A solid tank who can rush in and keep the bosses focused on him is an excellent complement to an Elementalist with Maelstrom who can render the Mesmer and Necromancer bosses useless for about 30 seconds (10 seconds of interruptions plus more time as their skills recharge).
  • Titans are very resistant to physical damage, but less so to elemental damage - especially cold damage.
    • This can be easily accomplished with Icy weapon mods.
    • Alternatively, Winter will convert all elemental damage to cold damage. Because many mobs in the area use Greater Conflagration, physical damage will also often be converted to cold damage through Winter.
  • An interrupt Mesmer can help here by shutting down the Necromancer boss and prevent him from casting Malaise.
  • A good way to break the anti-caster combination is to kill the Mesmer boss before the others.
