Quest bugs[edit]

Stale MateIf you kill any Mantids in range of the Monk Students after completing the quest, they will sometimes resurrect them.If you kill the hostile Warrior Student with spike damage the Monk Student will resurrect him. The warrior will remain hostile in this case.Sometimes neither the warriors nor the monk students will appear, so there is nothing to heal. No solution known.
The Jade ArenaSometimes the enemy party will not turn hostile at all or it may take a substantial amount of time.If you are killed and returned to the resurrection shrine, the enemies sometimes will not attack, using only healing skills. The monks will still attempt to heal their teammates.
Stolen EggsThis dialogue loops indefinitely if Sergeant Rodrik or the Outcasts aren't attacked.
Genius Operated Living Enchanted ManifestationSometimes a G.O.L.E.M. spawns with unlimited health.There is a delay between when the Bringers spawn and the task to defeat them is added to the quest. A sufficiently powerful group camped on their spawn location can kill them before the task is added, making it impossible to finish the quest.You can accidentally prevent the game from registering the completion of the mission if you kill the Bringers of Destruction before triggering their protectors. To avoid this, refrain from killing the two bosses until the very last task appears on your screen, i.e. even after you are told to kill the Bringers of Destruction.
Plan AVael will sometimes get stuck, and not lure the Charr as the quest suggests. If this occurs, simply zone in and out of nearby Sacnoth Valley and try talking to him again.You may receive a "QUEST FAILED" message upon retrieving the plans. The quest reward can still be collected upon returning them to Captain Langmar
Koss's ElixirThe effect of the elixir has been known to not end on henchmen, heroes, or animal companions. However the effect is removed upon zone change or their death.Once in a while, Slort won't spawn.
Lambs to the SlaughterIf the first Shadow Blade member to turn hostile is killed too quickly, the others will not become hostile for some time (anywhere from 3-30 minutes). Instead of waiting, you can backtrack to the spot where the Obsidian Flame group joined you and then return; the Blades will be hostile when you return.
Undead DefendersIf you kill the center group before they enter the village gates, the other two groups will not become hostile. Thus, the quest cannot be completed.
Crystal MethodOn very rare occasions, the Spectral Crystal does not drop, forcing you to return to the dungeon.
The Elusive GolemancerOccasionally, Worker Golem will fail to pull the lever; it will say "Invalid Command" when spoken to. (This seems to happen if you talk to it after activation but before it reaches the lever.) Should this happen, restart by typing the /resign emote; this returns you to Blimm (outside the dungeon) and allows you to start over without having to travel from Rata Sum.The Worker Golem can sometimes get stuck and stop moving. When this happens, the Golem Fire Shield will lose sync with the Worker Golem and continue to progress forward. If this happens, follow the shield, not the Golem, and advance like normal. Sometimes the Golem continues and the shield stops; stay with the shield, not the Golem.The Hero's Handbook lists this mission as Oola's Laboratory.
A Tasty MorselIf, during your current visit, you have passed near the resurrection shrine where Jirath is, Charen will head directly there (instead of staying with you) and will often get stuck on the way, preventing completion of the quest. If rezoning does not work, you can try abandoning the quest: afterward, return to the Ruptured Heart to pick up the quest again and this time, avoid the shrine until after you speak to Charen.
To Tahnnakai TempleEven if Mhenlo dies — and the quest log says Quest Failed — you might be able to complete the quest: keep moving forward to complete the objectives and you should be able to enter the temple as usual.Sometimes Nika and Mhenlo will say their dialogue early and out-of-order.Mhenlo and Togo both may become stuck at various points in this quest: Mhenlo often stops to heal minions; Togo can get body blocked by the Obsidian Flame Assassin and/or Nika after the battle, just before the trek back to the Temple. Brother Mhenlo can get stuck standing by Temple Guard Bai and will not follow you to the next marker. There is no option but to start over.The quest log will not update once Mhenlo meets up with Master Togo and Nika. This occurs if he takes a path other than the one programmed.The last group of afflicted at the bottom of the ramp may sometimes get stuck fighting a group of Am Fah and not approach Mhenlo. Seeking out and killing the group still allows progression.
Hungry DevourerJoe sometimes becomes stuck between two small trees
The Red-Cloaked DeserterSometimes, due to lag, when the player reaches Farrah Cappo after finding Little Thom, the quest does not finish. Instead, the quest reverts to finding him again.
Cleansing the ShrineSometimes Brother Sitai will not be hexed from the start, and you will have to re-zone and do it again.Holy Veil can not be used to remove the hex for some reason, you will have to re-zone and bring a different hex removal
Assault on Beknur HarborIf you let one of the first few waves inside, the quest will not progress, although the monsters will still come. After you go back and defeat the wave inside, groups of 4 or so creature waves follow for the remainder of the quest.
Attack at the KodashSometimes even after killing all groups that have spawned you still won't complete the quest. This might be caused by one of the Vabbian Commoners being stuck behind a Vabbian Chest.
The Last Day DawnsWith this quest, a Charr lord or two might spawn inside one of the cliffs. Such a spawn obstructs weapons, but can still be killed with ranged skills.
In the Army Now (Kurzick)The quest can sometimes fail after a recruit dies, if the journal fails to update properly to acknowledge the loss — this prevents you from replacing them with one of the alternatives. There is no known work-around.
Crossing the DesolationPalawa Joko sometimes fails to appear when the monument is activated; however, the quest still updates (even though there is no dialogue after Kormir leaves).
Lost SoulsYou may not receive credit in your Dungeon Guide for this quest even after talking to the correct NPCs.Fendi Nin might not spawn at all, making it impossible to finish the quest and forcing the player to resign and restart.
Kilroy Stonekin's Punch-Out Extravaganza!If one levels up while knocked down (e.g. because Kilroy kills an enemy) STAND UP! has no effect and you will be kicked out of the dungeon. Unfortunately, this counts as a death towards a Survivor title — be sure to map out of the dungeon if this happens.As in other areas, locked chests can spawn inside a wall. Should you be able to open the chest but cannot pick up the loot, complete the dungeon and wait 3 minutes for the game to return you to Gunnar's Hold. The item will then appear in the Unclaimed Items window.Sometimes Kilroy may get stuck on a chest that has spawned in his way, if you lure a Stone Summit near him he will often get free, otherwise you will have to continue without him.
A Little ReconSome Heroes and Henchmen do not attack when Koss's Elixir is done in the same run, but Jagged Horrors are able to inflict damage and Bleeding Condition when they replace Shambling Horrors.Occasionally, a nearby group of plants will patrol by the Kournan soldiers. If the Kournan soldiers do not become hostile (if you stay out of range of that quest trigger) the Kournans will peacefully stand by while the plants kill them. The quest can be completed in this fashion with little combat. The Plants will not attack the Kournan Captain.
Voices in the NightThe Trapped Voices will always spawn, even for non-Nightfall characters, despite the fact that non-Nightfall characters will not be offered this quest.
Giriff's WarThe two amphibians fighting at the very beginning of the dungeon might not die. In order to continue with the dungeon, you may need to rezone.On the first level, you might have to rezone numerous times because all of the amphibians are dead, thus you can't progress because the door doesn't open.
In Memory of PaulusThe wrong objective in the quest log for this quest is displayed. It is the objective for the quest Deliver a Message to My Wife, another quest involving Melka.
Seek out Brother TosaiSometimes this quest does not show in the quest log.
Feeding FrenzyIf Toma dies after eating his fill, the game informs you that you have failed the quest, but your quest log indicates that the quest has been completed. It seems the log is accurate, since you can claim the reward even with Toma dead. Simply rezone and accept the reward.
Orrian ExcavationUpon collecting 5 Orrian Tablet Shards the quest log will not update to read "Orrian Excavation (Completed)".Upon completion, Magi Malaquire will take all the shards in your inventory. If you wish to keep any extras, put them in storage first.
Forbidden FruitGharaz the Glutton will be resurrected with the other Charr in the fort even if you poisoned the food, which means that he will still be alive during the following quest if you remain in the zone.
Battle in the SewersA group of Afflicted Warriors and Assassins (that spawn due to this quest) on the way to Commander Jafai won't move or attack, and use no skills except Endure Pain (used by the Afflicted Warriors).
Destruction's DepthsThe Vanguard Warriors and monks will often turn hostile when they take damage, in the same way charmable animals do. See the screenshot at right.When you skip the introduction cinematic, your party may be attacked by a Firestorm and Incendiary Bonds.
Attack the Kurzicks!Even if you already completed this quest, when you re-enter Maishang Hills without accepting the reward, the quest log resets and you will have to complete it again.
Lost TreasureIf you run away from Raitahn Nem and kill enemies too early, he will stop moving, making it impossible to complete the quest.If you stay too long in the explorable area spawn zone (even if you don't click on him) Raitahn Nem will leave you and do the quest himself causing him to die and the mission to fail.
Masters of CorruptionThe last group of Am Fah may get stuck on the bridge to the south east of the battle area. In this case, you have to kill them there to trigger Brother Tosai's final speech.
Imprisoned SpiritsSometimes, the spirits will not spawn at all, obliging the players to get back to the outpost.Sometimes, a Locked Chest will spawn blocking the pathway of the Tortured Spirits which will also oblige the players to return to the outpost.
Noble Intentions Plan BOrozar may get caught in a chest on his way to save his brother. Try to pull some enemies to the spot where he is stuck, and if he engages to fight he will then proceed to his brother. If that is not possible, you are forced to restart the quest by zoning out.
Coffer of JokoIt has been reported that if the Scriptures of Abaddon is in your inventory, leaving this area before completing the quest will cause the quest objectives to reset in the quest log. The quest can still be completed from where you left off when you re-enter the area.
Anything You Can DoDefeating Remnant of Antiquities may, but does not always, count as defeating Fragment of Antiquities.
Warband of BrothersCowl Fiercetongue will not attack nor use skills that target a foe until the party reaches the last level. He will still be targeted by foes.
The Egg HunterWhen you attack a devourer that is trapped behind a rock or egg, your attacks can be obstructed. Reposition yourself so that you can attack from a different angle (or bring skills that can do damage without a line-of-sight).
The Flight NorthSometimes after slowing down the Charr and getting to the gate where you must bring down the cracked pillar, the gate will not open. Doing the Charr chase sequence first, then lighting the torch should cause the gate to open afterwardsIf you destroy the Fractured Pillar just as the Devourer Catapult is about to kill you, the cut scene will trigger and the quest will keep going, but your party will have been defeatedIf you are attacked by Black Wolves when you first get outside, they will continue attacking you even if you Hide or Feign Death.
Reaping the NagaSu may become stuck behind a Shing Jea Chest, causing you to have to restart the quest
Song and StoneIf you are doing this quest with just heroes and/or henchmen, sometimes your healer NPCs will completely ignore the Stone Singers.Follow the direction of the above map, doing this quest in reverse the last 3 singers will not appear as objectives on the map and you won't be able to complete all 8 requirements.
Closer to the StarsIf you kill the Jade Brothers too fast, the quest will not update and thus not be able to be finished.
Lost Treasure of King HundarSometimes Koris Deeprunner will get stuck at a locked chest, making the quest impossible to complete.
Blacktide DenIt is possible to pass through some of the Kournan Guard barriers before speaking to Captain Besuz. There is no benefit in doing so and requires more time than finishing the mission normally.Occasionally, General Kahyet and her group will appear, but fail to turn hostile. There is no work-around; you must restart the mission.
Charr-broiled PlansSometimes the Charr Demolishers are not accompanied by pets.
A Very Grentchie WintersdaySometimes in Watchtower Coast, when you are picking up the garlic, Necromancer Skorzena is already dead upon arrival. It would seem the Elite Guards protecting her don't react if a group of bog skale next to her attacks before you arrive, thus leaving her helpless. In this case, you simply need to re-zone.Sometimes a Daltain Guard will run up and attack her, and her Elite Guards will not react, leaving her helpless.If War in Kryta is active, White Mantle near Necromancer Skorzena can attack and kill her.
The Strength of SnowSometimes a grentch may spawn inside the wall, becoming unreachable. This will not prevent quest completion.The Quest Log displays "Avatar of Dwayna (Kamadan, Jewel of Istan)" even though she does not give this quest and your character acquired this quest in Lion's Arch.
An Unwelcome GuestCorrupted Zunraa does not appear sometimes.
Straight to the HeartA grentch knocked down after spawning but having not started moving toward their activation point will often not move again. This happens most often from a hidden rock at the first spawn point.There is a position on the far corner of the bridge to the Area Map that allows snowmen to target grentches but not anyone on or behind the bridge to hit that snowman directly. Indirect attacks and disease from nearby snowmen will still affect it.
Holding the LineInitially heading to the second quest point and defeating all the enemies there will cause the quest to be marked as completed. Enemies will still spawn at the first point if one then proceeds there, although the quest will still be considered complete.
The Eternal GroveAs the first wave of Luxon approach from the west, the party can intercept these enemies as a large group. Killing the Siege Turtle before it has reached its destination may prevent the mission from continuing onto the Afflicted stage, however.Sometimes Siege Turtles or Luxon Rangers on one of the small hills may remain hostile after the intermediate cinematic. The Afflicted will still attack them and vice-versa.
The Three Wise NornWhen multiple party members have items to give to the Norn, only the first to do so will be allowed to hand over an item. The quest will update for all other players, but the quest items they hold will become useless and must be deleted.
Be Very, Very Quiet...If Torch Harrowkeeper dies and is resurrected, he will drop a second Charr Intelligence.It is possible for a chest to spawn in the Sacnoth Valley portal, preventing the Grawl from attending the meeting.
Frontier Gate FugitivesFootman Tate will continue to spawn in the Eastern Frontier even after you lead him back to the Frontier Gate.
Insatiable AppetiteAfter 10 feedings, 20 seconds are added to the count-down clock. However, the total duration of the feeding time does not change, so that it appears that 20 seconds remain when Toma stops accruing additional kills.Make sure you have room to accept the quest reward: if your inventory is full when speaking to Chuno, you will not be able to receive any branches, despite Chuno's offer to "speak to [him] again, once you have made space."
The Hero's ChallengeSometimes Sanyi will get stuck behind the tree stump right before the Stone Summit after crossing the bridge. Talk to her and she will move.
A Gate Too FarOn the second floor, if you do not take Raven blessing, sometimes you will encounter the default mobs instead of Destroyers. On the third floor, the Destroyers sometimes do not spawn until you reach the final area that has the Asura Gate.If the rest of your party wipes and Ogden and/or Vekk are in the party, they will resurrect where they died, as soon as the final dialogue begins (as you enter the last room).
Armored TransportSometimes the corsairs that run at you while on the plains will run away as soon as they reach your aggro radius, making you run after them until they stop. Then you can kill them. (Example)After killing the corsairs, Dengo sometimes will not move, forcing you to restart the quest.
Old Woman RiverEven if you finished the quest but left the area before receiving your reward, Yartu will not spawn, making it impossible to get the reward.
Hog HuntThis quest will be registered as completed if the player is in a party with another player that has already completed this quest.If doing this quest with a non-Elonian character in party, Nehdukah will not follow the party.
Defense Against HexesLo Sha claims the skills are provided by him, when they are provided by Instructer Ng.
Oswalt's EpitaphWhen acquiring this quest, occasionally it will immediately update to indicate that you have completed the second objective ("Inscribe Elsa's words on the headstone"), but not the first objective.
Dissonance (PvP)This spirit will interrupt even when the target is using a skill like Mantra of Resolve (PvP)[verification requested].
Warning the TenguTalon Silverwing does not appear if you have a festival quest active
The Worm ProblemSometimes Pitney will get caught on Devona, and you will have to leave the area and try again.If you leave the area during this quest, you will have to obtain another egg in order to finish it.
HauntedDespite the description, you can fulfill this quest without Xandra in your party.
Scorched Earth (Prophecies quest)The counter for x/5 Hulking Stone Elementals goes up even if you kill foes that aren't Hulking Stone Elementals.
Hunted!The quest log lists Zudash Dejarin as quest giver.
Service: Practice, DummyResigning while the timer is up will mark the quest as completed.
The Dawn of RebellionPyre may not open the gate, or you might find it closed if you take too long to cross it. You may be able to get Pyre to open the gate by clicking on the Charr lock (switch) in front of the gate.
If you find yourself locked outside, rezone and try again.
A Formal IntroductionSometimes Master Togo will get stuck on Water Buffalo, and you will need to restart the quest from Shing Jea Monastery. A workaround for this is to activate a point blank area of effect damage skill, such as Ancestors' Rage, while standing next to the buffalo, which causes the buffalo to move.Also, sometimes Master Togo will exhibit extremely faulty scripting, and pause some distance away from the guard, refusing to move further. You will need to restart.
Escape from the TormentSometimes after defeating Abaddon's forces the quest is updated as failed.
Deactivating R.O.X.During the fight with R.O.X., he will sometimes get caught on a wall, and stop attacking.Sometimes the statue of Dwayna fails to load, and acolytes sent there will provide no blessing.
O Brave New WorldIf you walk to the first island in Arbor Bay without talking to Erff first, the quest will update and say that you have completed the second objective, even though Erff and the Krewe will remain stationary at the entrance to Vlox Falls. Upon reaching the third location, however, you will not be able to complete the quest without having talked to Erff. If you are concerned about the safety of the Krewe, you can have one player stay at the entrance to Vlox Falls, then once the party is in position on the pyramid, the player who stayed behind can talk to Erff to trigger the destroyer spawn, then rejoin the party.Sometimes one of the destroyers will be caught in a rock, requiring nonprojectile damaging spells to kill it.
Charr at the GateCharr can occasionally spawn behind the gate.
Command TrainingIf Area Two and Area Three are captured before capturing Area One, the quest can be finished by capturing Area One last, without the Razorback Skales spawning.Scared Razorback Skales glitch. If the Razorback Skales enters the player's earshot range, they will attempt to run up and attack. Failing to reach, they then run away and the hero nor the Skales will initiate combat. If the hero leaves the area that the bugged Skales belong to, they will run back to it.The quest can still be finished if the player teleports down before completing all objectives.Although it says "Use your hero to capture area one" Mercenary Heroes do not count and will result in failing the quest.
The Great Norn AlemootFor various reasons, the quest can be completed without finishing all the activities:
  • You automatically succeed once three pigs enter the stables. You can use this to your advantage, by body-blocking the pigs into the pen before starting the timer. It takes longer, as the hogs are harder to control, but you have all the time you need this way. Also:
    • Sometimes three will reach the corral on their own.
    • Sometimes the game server registers three pigs entering, although you see something different on-screen.
  • If you have completed up to the slalom, you can retake the challenge and succeed by heading straight for the pigs, who will now be easier to herd.If you apply an Extreme Makeover Credit to change gender after taking the quest, but before completion, you will have to finish it an extra time before you can proceed to the subsequent quests.You can see the edge of the world by running into the next zone.As with any time-dependent tasks, you can fail this quest due to lag. Consider waiting until your ping is low.
Defending the BreachThe quest log could update itself as "Completed" after killing the waves of Destroyers but not the Plague of Destruction.
Choose Your Secondary Profession (Nightfall quest)You can abandon this quest after choosing your secondary and before accepting the quest reward and will get a new choice to choose your secondary. However, this will have no effect — your secondary profession has already been locked.
Don't Fear the ReapersIn the German translation, all words are capitalized.In the French translation, Reaper of the Labyrinth's dialogue does not make sense, speaking about the first step of the quest (using a Transmogrifier Tonic and speaking to the Voice of Grenth).The door to the inside of the Hall of Judgment is visible but does not collide with other objects. You can walk through it to see the inside. This is useful if you are interested in seeing Dhuum's lair but cannot be bothered with the illimitable prerequisites.
The Rite of ValorIt is possible to complete both Death with Honor and The Rite of Valor by entering the area with another player who has not completed either quest.
Death with HonorIt is possible to complete both Death with Honor and The Rite of Valor by entering the area with another player who has not completed either quest.
A Fool's LuckIf a player with at least 5Platinum talking to Ruthless Sevad selects the "Thief! Here's your five platinum..." option but hasn't clicked the following "Here's the money..." option, the player can drop all of their gold on the ground, click the "Here's the money..." option, and pick their gold back up to skip to the reward objective without actually paying the 5Platinum.
The Sickened VillageSometimes only Fawn and Jia have the green mist of sickness around them. Kin can still be "cured" though.
Capturing the Orrian TomeAlthough this is supposed to be a conversation between two bandits, only one of them does any talking. Because of this, it is possible to kill the non-speaking one and continue the quest. However, the quest log will state that the quest fails.
The Frost Gate (Zaishen quest)If you are at the end of the mission and die after activating all 3 of the gear levers and wait a bit the Zaishen quest still updates as if the mission was really completed.
Replacement HealersDevona can become stuck on terrain, requiring re-zoning to continue.
Big News, Small PackageTahlkora will heal and enchant foes while this quest is active.
The Battle of JahaiIf you do this mission with a female character and play an emote with gender specific text it will ignore that you are playing as Turai Osssa and still use the female form she/her instead of he/him.
The Last HogWhen the path splits into two with the big tree in the middle, try to avoid letting the hog near the tree where it can get stuck when it moves through the tree. If this happens you have to rezone and start over again.
Army LifeOld Mac might repeat his dialogue as you approach the portal.
The Cipher of MelandruSome characters who have never been to Tarnished Haven have this quest in their logs, but the reason is currently unknown.
Curse of the NornbearSometimes Volfen Bloodlust will not work and you will be unable to see the location of Svanir.
A Little Help From AboveIn Russian, Italian, Spanish and French translations, the number of groups remaining is not posted.
A Deal's a DealCredit is not given for vanquishing Joko's Domain while this quest is active, even if the party defeats the last foe before triggering the cinematic.
Augury Rock (Zaishen quest)The mission doesn't need to be a success. Defeating the Doppelganger is enough to complete the quest; however, the first bonus is not satisfied if you die before the Doppelganger.
Wanted: Inquisitor LovisaPlayers who started the three required Wanted quests before the 19 November 2010 update might be forced to take the official umbrella quest, which is optional otherwise. If you are unable to move on to Riverside Assassination, speak to Murro in Lion's Arch and add The War in Kryta to your quest log.If a White Mantle Ritualist appears with Lovisa, the spirits it summons will be allied with you but you do not receive any benefits from them, nor can you attack them.This quest was available again for some characters, after completion of the first three Hearts of the North missions.
Duel of the HousesThe duel won't start if you kill Lord Brauer too fast. The duel may start afterwards.Rarely, the enemy team won't spawn at all and the reward can immediately be collected.
The Final AssaultSometimes Ennis stops following you on the path to Sorrow's Furnace. Once inside, he will not appear and you have to come back to the starting point. To prevent this, click and talk to Ennis just before entering to ensure he is following.
Mayhem in the MarketFactions characters who have not completed all the objectives may join a character who is completing the quest and enter Vizunah Square (Local Quarter), allowing both characters to complete the quest.
Quality SteelUnlike most other quests when you give an item to an NPC, there doesn't appear to be a text notification that Puuba takes his sword.
Garfazz Bloodfang (quest)Sometimes, after you accept the reward from Duke Barradin on completion of The Siege of Piken Square (the prerequisite quest for Garfazz Bloodfang), Viggo won't gain the expected green exclamation point above his head until you click on him.
Vanishing SpiritsOccasionally, Charen will not give the reward for this quest. When this happens, you have to exit to an outpost, abandon the quest and and return to the area to restart
Halloween/FinaleIn the Polish translation, the Beg and the Mad King Says dialogue sections are partially not translated and some of these sections are swapped with different ones.
Summertime for BokkaIf you do not pay Ola, he incorrectly refers to the play as "Summertime for Varesh" in his second last dialog.Speaking to Amadi will complete the quest even if you haven't recruited Ola.
The UnderworldIf your party begins the fight with Dhuum before King Frozenwind walks past the gate, he will be stuck outside. About a minute after your party defeats Dhuum, King Frozenwind and the Ice Elementals will spawn inside the Hall of Judgment. Sometimes King Frozenwind will not appear once Dhuum dies and the chest will not appear as a result.
Auspicious BeginningsSometimes Gwen endlessly repeats the last dialogue in the Hall of Monuments.If you fail the mission by swapping out Keiran's Bow too soon, the game incorrectly states you must equip Togo's Staff to play the mission.
Wanted: Inquisitor LashonaThis quest was available again for some characters, after completion of the first two quests of the Thackeray's Missions in Hearts of the North campaign.This quest refers to Salma as queen before she becomes queen.Players who started the three required Wanted quests before the 19 November 2010 update might be forced to take the official umbrella quest, which is optional otherwise. If you are unable to move on to Riverside Assassination, speak to Murro in Lion's Arch and add The War in Kryta to your quest log.
Prenuptial Disagreement (male)This quest cannot be repeated after an Extreme Makeover Credit (sex change) because the boss will not be there.
Prenuptial Disagreement (female)This quest cannot be repeated after an Extreme Makeover Credit (sex change) because the boss will not be there.
Against the CharrIf you enter this mission while riding a Siege Devourer you will not earn credit for completing it.
Find the Stolen PresentsPressing CTRL-Space while having a present selected will produce the following dialog from your character: "I'm using a(n)." The present does not have a title in the target display at the top of the screen either.
Animal companionSometimes when a pet evolves, its name will not update until it is reset with the /petname (or /namepet) command.
Snowball DominanceThe game will report that you have won if all opposing combatants are tagged out before the timer runs out. However, you only receive credit for a win if at least one player survives when the countdown begins.Brartark and Helga will continue attacking foes after they have been eliminated. You can take advantage of this by pulling opponents to them.
Wanted: Inquisitor BauerPlayers who started the three required Wanted quests before the 19 November 2010 update might be forced to take the official umbrella quest, which is optional otherwise. If you are unable to move on to Riverside Assassination, speak to Murro in Lion's Arch and add The War in Kryta to your quest log.
Weird WatersOccasionally, the Heket will attack each other.
The Crop ThievesThis quest will sometimes register as completed before all the thieves have been defeated.
Seeking ShelterCamp Guard Pongtu is incorrectly identified as Guardsman Pongtu in the quest log.
Missing ShipmentKailona incorrectly suggests that using expert or superior salvage kits always destroys the armor to which they are applied; there is a minimum 50% chance to retain the armor (see salvage for details).
The HuntWhen six wolves have been killed, the quest log reads, "Destroy the Shard Wolves. 1 Shard Wolve remain".
To the Rescue!If you enter the cave where the Warden of Whispers is prior to starting the quest, the waves of torment creatures will attack before you can reach the Warden, making it next to impossible to succeed.
Escort of SoulsOn rare occasions, the Mindblades do not attack the New Souls, making far easier to complete this quest.
The ArrowheadThe intermediate dialogue may repeat endlessly when you enter the Hall of Monuments until you complete the quest and leave the Hall.
Wayward GuideIf any player in the party has completed this quest, neither Kane nor the margonites will appear.
Sticks and StonesAs with other quests, if you do not have room when you accept the reward, Awata will take the 10 shards but will not give you the Ancient Artifact.
Jokanur Diggings (Zaishen quest)Kahdash is considered a Sunspear Ghost, so the first bonus objective is not completed if he dies. The bonus objective text should instead be Complete the mission with three Sunspear Ghosts left alive.
White Mantle Wrath: Demagogue's VanguardIf you arrive late to the last group, a Maguuma Warrior will be attacking it and you will have to restart the whole quest.
The Rampaging YetisAs with any festival quest, all characters are able to take this quest after the festival is over, as long as Imperial Guard Hanso remains available. However, as soon as you zone, the quest will disappear from your log.
Cleansing Shenzun TunnelsIf Zei Ri fails to resurrect after a death, you will be unable to complete the quest; you must rezone and start over.The final wave of Afflicted can spawn even if there are foes remaining from previous waves. If this happens, you need only defeat the final group to receive credit for quest completion.
What Waits in ShadowThe Jade Brotherhood Warriors that accompany Lai, Graceful Blade as well as Sheng Pai will not always say their line of dialogue.
Cantha Courier CrisisBeyond the square where you encounter Jade Brotherhood mobs appearing in waves, there's a chance that if you trigger hidden mobs when Falken is knocked out, he may stand there and no longer move. If this happens, you are forced to restart the quest.
Raze the RoostYou can complete the quest without spending any money: with at least 2 platinum in your inventory, speak to Junior Minister Jejiang and follow the dialogue until the "Accept" and "Decline" options appear. Drop all your money and Accept the reward. (Remember to pick up your cash before zoning out.)
Hell's PrecipiceOccasionally, one of the portals does not appear. In this case, closing the other two portals does not help, but should be attempted.On rare occasions, the seer will be dead before you can trigger the bonus, even if you stayed out of compass distance.
Nicholas SandfordOn very rare occasions, Nick will offer zero to four gifts (rather than the usual five). Fortunately, the issue will resolve itself on subsequent days. There is no known way to prevent this from happening (since no one has been successful in replicating the issue).
The ChallengeIf Chong Poi's gang dies before he turns aggressive (e.g. during Cleansing the Undercity), the quest cannot continue; you will have to return to the outpost and retry.
The Foundry of Failed Creations (quest)If you clear the first room before taking the quest and then take the quest the wall will appear again and cannot be removed. This will trap whoever took the quest and anybody else still behind the wall.
Into the UnknownSometimes Mhenlo will continue to follow you and heal your party after you reach the mesaAidan's second line, "Impressive. I assume that completing these trials will open the way for us?" should be said by Devona.
The Battle for Lion's ArchCompleting this stage of The War in Kryta before this stage appears in your quest log can make it difficult to proceed with the intermediary quests. If this happens, you can work around the issue by either following the manual walkthrough or by completing any of the available wanted quests and waiting to accept its reward until you have completed all the intermediary quests and The Battle for Lion's Arch.
Violence in the StreetsThe quest log fails to mention the experience and gold rewards. However, they are noted in the various dialogues.
Wanted by the Shining BladeAccepting the reward for The Battle for Lion's Arch after beginning The War in Kryta but before this stage appears in your quest log can cause issues as it will mark The War in Kryta as complete, preventing you from doing the quests skipped. You can work around this by following the manual walk through, unless you have completed both Ebon Vanguard Allies and Asuran Allies. If you have completed the two quests, you will be unable to trigger the dialogue with Princess Salma that allows you to take the Wanted! quests targeting the three inquisitors (Bauer, Lashona, and Lovisa).
A Favor ReturnedIf you run to the three students before the initial dialogue is complete, the quest will not trigger properly. You must run about halfway back to him and re-approach the cave.
Invoking the SaintsIn the dialogue used by Count Archeck Brauer, he refers to Saint Perahta, the patron saint of House Brauer, as "the most revered ancestor of House Lutgardis".
Ebon Vanguard AlliesSometimes after listening to a dialogue in the Hall of Monuments, only the party leader's quest log is updated for the Ebon Vanguard Allies quest. Party members might see the main quest log updated, but they might still have to return individually to the HoM and the Ice Cliff Chasms to listen to the dialogue again.
Every Bit HelpsIf your character has 99Platinum 1Gold or more, you will only be awarded experience and Trick-or-Treat Bags but not any gold. Usually an NPC will not give a quest reward until your character has enough space for the gold and/or items.If you have enough filled mobstoppers in your inventory to complete this quest, but less than 3 in the first inventory slot, you will be unable to accept the reward because "your inventory is full".
Tracking the NornbearThe dialogue for Drakkar Lake will activate at every entrance to Drakkar Lake, should one go near them.
Reversing the SkalesEventually, Timot will leave Scoundrel's Rise into Gates of Kryta making the quest impossible to finish in the current instance.
The Lost PrincessThe quest marker will not appear on the radar while in explorable areas, except at The Black Curtain.
Raid on Kaineng CenterSometimes the incoming waves of enemies will not spawn. Instead, only a few waves will spawn in the Main Gate, and no other enemies will spawn afterwards.
Summoning stoneIn extremely rare circumstances, drops can be assigned to a summoned creature and cannot be picked up by anyone. However, once the item loses its assignment, anyone will be able to grab it.
Special Ops: Dragon's GulletThe quest does not mention that the reward can depend on your rank and you will receive the success message even if you are ineligible to receive the reputation reward.

Special Ops: Grendich CourthouseThe quest does not mention that the reward can depend on your rank and you will receive the success message even if you are ineligible to receive the reputation reward.
Master of MagicWhile under the effects of Master of Magic, being weakened with attribute points in elemental ranks will cause elemental ranks to lower by 1. Elemental attributes without attribute points in will not lower by 1.
Caravan in TroubleIf NPCs are aggroed, Mhenlo may say his second line before the Caravan Guard's answer.
A Show of ForceAs with other triggered spawns, one or more of the shrine-based monoliths will sometimes appear without being able to aggro or respond to attacks. Likewise, heroes will not attack them until the player initiates combat. While in this inactive state, they appear in their fully assembled form.
DhuumAfter defeating Dhuum, King Frozenwind sometimes fails to teleport you into his chamber, which prevents you from getting the Underworld chest.
Purify SoulThis skill's health regeneration and duration is greater than stated in the description.[verification requested]
The Wayward MonkMhenlo's apology does not appear in Team Chat.If you leave the Iron Horse Mine before accepting the reward, Mhenlo will not be there when players return, and they will have to abandon the quest and start it again.
AnnihilatorThe Quest Log says the quest is given in Lion's Arch, instead of Embark Beach.
Annihilator 2: Searing DayThe Quest Log says the quest is given in Lion's Arch, instead of Embark Beach.The Bandit Firestarters are hostile to each other.

Study BuddyIf Yijo accidentally damages an Ox during this quest, he will be able to attack and kill it
Too High a PriceSometimes Nakai won't offer the quest after Sunzu has run far enough to normally trigger the offer. Running back to Mitah, then back to Nakai can correct this.

Luxon Army ElementalistSimilar to Kurzick Army Elementalist, Kurzick Thunder, and Luxon Storm Caller, she uses Lightning Hammer instead of Lightning Hammer (PvP).Similar to Master of Lightning in Isle of the Nameless (PvP) and Kurzick Army Elementalist, she does not seem to use Lightning Orb (PvP) nor Lightning Orb since the update that removed Lightning Orb (PvP).
Hopeless RomanticIf the Winds of Change encounter takes place in this area, Hai Len will get stuck by Canthan Peasant and Canthan Guard who discuss the news near the Jei's house. You need to re-enter the area.
Kurzick Army ElementalistSimilar to Kurzick Thunder, Luxon Army Elementalist, and Luxon Storm Caller, he uses Lightning Hammer instead of Lightning Hammer (PvP).Similar to Master of Lightning in Isle of the Nameless (PvP) and Luxon Army Elementalist, he does not seem to use Lightning Orb (PvP) nor Lightning Orb since the update that removed Lightning Orb (PvP).
Deactivating P.O.X.Sometimes after P.O.X. goes haywire you cannot interact because whenever you click it automatically makes you use your first skill.
Fires in the NorthOnce the quest is completed, the compass marker will point towards Captain Arne in Ascalon City, instead of Duke Barradin in Piken Square.
Insidious RemnantsIf you warp out of the area before the fight is over and the quest log is updated, you won't be able to return, because the quest NPCs do not offer the relevant dialogues; in this case, the only way to do the quest is by abandoning and retaking it.
Evil ResidentsThe minions that are not spawned by skills and Bone Horrors that are spawned from Minion Apocalypse are masterless, since Verata's Gaze only needs to be used once instead of twice to take control of one of these minions if Verata's Gaze does not fail because of the caster having 0 Death Magic; however, the masterless minions that are not spawned by skills are not hostile to the quest-related foes, while masterless Bone Horrors that are spawned from Minion Apocalypse are hostile to the quest-related foes.
The Polar DepressedUnlike other quests, this quest is not indicated with a "(Completed)" beside the quest name in the Quest Log after the objective is completed.You cannot accept the quest reward while your character's inventory is full and the inventory holds another Frozen Accessory Token in it, even though Frozen Accessory Tokens are stackable.

Give Peace a ChanceSometimes Hayda will get stuck on the resurrection shrine and you will have to restart the quest.
Vanguard foeEquipment upgrades that should benefit against Undead, Grawl, or Humans have no apparent affect against Vanguard foes. The only upgrades that show any benefit are weapon mods that boost armor and/or damage against the Charr. [verification requested]

Dual StrikeDragon Festival quests have been known to interfere with the completion of this quest.
Welcome to CanthaThe Quest Log displays "Dockhand Quangnai (Kaineng Docks)" even though Bejunkan Pier is where Dockhand Quangnai is located and the quest is acquired.
Better You Than MeUnlike other quests, this quest is not indicated with a "(Completed)" beside the quest name in the Quest Log after the objective is completed.You cannot accept the quest reward while your character's inventory is full and the inventory holds another Ghoulish Accessory Token in it, even though Ghoulish Accessory Tokens are stackable.

Gwen's Flute (quest)If you abandon this quest, Gwen will not give it again.
Vassal StatesSometimes the quest marker does not update after you killed 4 groups at the Jade Sea. This might be the case, that the groups got killed by other foes already. To update the quest you just have to head to Scourgewind, Elder Guardian via the path from the water.
Bug Vassal States NM.png
  • Killing groups of Jade Brotherhood or Am Fah before the quest tells you to kill them will not bug the quest. The quest marker will still point you to the direction of the group you've already killed, but simply walking to the location will update the quest and direct you to the next group of Jade Brotherhood or Am Fah to kill.
  • A Chance EncounterSometimes the Spirit of Life summoned by Ministry Purgers appears as an allied target.
    The Eternal ForgemasterClearing the Eternal Forge area before taking the quest, may sometimes result in the Forgemaster not spawning.
    Securing Champion's Dawn[Character Name] is missed in the Castellan Puuba's dialogue.
    Sanctum CayWhen pulled away from the pier in their final location, the White Mantle from the south side of the docks can run off in a straight line away from the pier and get stuck on the first obstacle they run into. These foes will not return to the pier afterwards, but will still attack any opponent that enters their range.
    Seeking a CureDuring the Dragon Festival, taking the quest The Rampaging Yetis stops you from being able to find the Nong Berry Bush and the Tai Ling Vine, and they will not be visible on the map. Complete the offending quest and re-zone to fix this.
    Taking Back the PalaceThe first objective of this quest does not updating during the Dragon Festival, presumably because the decorated version of Kaineng Center is considered a different area. This does not prevent completion by traveling to Raisu Pavilion.

    Mission bugs[edit]

    The DeepThe actual environment effect does not match the description. The teleport and knockdown effect occurs at 30 seconds the first time and the duration between knockdowns begins to shorten every time it triggers.
    Ruins of SurmiaPrince Rurik can sometimes get obstructed by a chest spawn or get stuck on the stairs before the tar area. If this happens, you'll have to restart the mission and try again.If you approach the imprisoned Mages before opening the drawbridge, sometimes one of them will run straight through the closed door and follow you around until he is killed or brought within range of an obelisk.Sometimes a charr can spawn underground near the imprisoned mages gate.Sometimes Breena doesn't appear at point 2, possibly killed by the Charr boss near her. When this happens, you'll have to restart the mission and try again.The Flame that the Ember Bearers carry can get stuck on the wall of the tar pit or any minions, the Ember Bearers will carry on but when they get to the gate it doesn't open. However, if you pull them near The Flame and run off it will begin to follow them again.Sometimes the Ember Bearers will get caught at the gate they enter through and prevent the exit gate from being opened. The bonus is still completable as long as the entrance gate opens, but you will not be able to use the exit gate as a shortcut.
    Ice Caves of SorrowA little while after the first Stone Summit group the mob of Mursaat passes on the frozen lake, there is a Shiverpeak Chest which the Mursaat sometimes will get stuck on and stop moving. If this happens, you will have to retry the mission or attempt to have an infused player pull them away from it. The Mursaat stops after the stone bridge.Sometimes Evennia will not follow you, sometimes she may follow Saidra and gets killed by Mursaat; you must restart the mission if this happens.
    Tahnnakai TempleSometimes the released spirits can get stuck on an object, allied spirit, or minion and therefore cannot reach the door to unlock the next area. NPC allies such as Master Togo and Brother Mhenlo can get in the way too. You have time to wait for your spirits to expire, you can move the party to adjust the minion's position, and (sometimes) moving the party will also distract the spirit past the obstacle. There is no work-around if the spirit is completely stuck on a corner or chest. Should that happen, you must restart the mission.If a chest spawns in the far corner of Bound Jaizhanju's area, the item from it can drop in an unreachable area inside the pipe.
    ArborstoneSometimes Danika will get stuck on one of the randomly spawned chests. Have the urn bearer attempt to drag her out of it. You will have to restart if she is permanently stuck.If you leave the central area without waiting for Danika to follow, she will run through the center route on her own. There is a high probability of her dying if you took an alternate route, as she will run through the spawns attempting to get to the end of the mission.
    Kilroy Stonekin's Punch-Out Extravaganza!If one levels up while knocked down (e.g. because Kilroy kills an enemy) STAND UP! has no effect and you will be kicked out of the dungeon. Unfortunately, this counts as a death towards a Survivor title — be sure to map out of the dungeon if this happens.As in other areas, locked chests can spawn inside a wall. Should you be able to open the chest but cannot pick up the loot, complete the dungeon and wait 3 minutes for the game to return you to Gunnar's Hold. The item will then appear in the Unclaimed Items window.Sometimes Kilroy may get stuck on a chest that has spawned in his way, if you lure a Stone Summit near him he will often get free, otherwise you will have to continue without him.
    Pogahn PassageSometimes Guard Linko will not show up. In that case you will have to re-do the mission for the bonus.For some characters the map will not be uncovered during the cinematic, even after moving using the keyboard
    Nundu BaySometimes the Margonites will stop spawning. This is irrelevant, you may safely exit the village and kill the Harbinger of Nightfall.Sometimes the Harbinger of Twilight will not spawn after defeating Priest Zein Zuu, and you must restart the mission.
    Vizunah SquareThis mission highlights many deficiencies in the NPC pathfinding AI:
    • It is possible for a henchman-only party to get stuck behind a chest, forcing you to either restart the mission or continue alone. If the henchman party is starting from the Foreign Quarter, this can happen before they reach the first meeting point. It is possible for Togo or Mhenlo to get stuck in the same way.
    • It is possible for Togo to just get stuck for no reason, which causes the last fight to fail to initialize, making the final battle of the mission impossible to complete.
    • If you bring minions, Mhenlo can get distracted in healing them, causing him not to reach his waypoints. A sign that this has happened is Togo standing still some distance behind the party. If this happens, try moving back towards Togo; when Mhenlo gets close enough, the missed waypoint will trigger and Togo will start moving again.
    Tihark OrchardAs with Margrid in "No Me, No Kormir", Morgahn will call you an Istani even if you are a Prophecies or Factions character.
    Fort AspenwoodLuxons do not win immediately after Master Architect Gunther is killed, there is a slight time delay (usually a few seconds), but Kurzicks win immediately when the progress bar reaches 100%. Because of this, if the timer is close to completion and Gunther is killed, the Kurzicks will occasionally win anyway.Sometimes when a command point has been taken by the Kurzicks and re-taken by the Luxons, a team of 8 Luxon Warriors will spawn rather than the usual 4.Sometimes the game will refer to the Refined Amber Mine as the Green Amber Mine, such as when it's capped.Gods' Vengeance can reach over 100% by giving amber to Gunther right before 100% is reached, allowing Kurzick players to receive more than 4,000 (up to 4,060) Imperial faction for winning.
    The Flight NorthSometimes after slowing down the Charr and getting to the gate where you must bring down the cracked pillar, the gate will not open. Doing the Charr chase sequence first, then lighting the torch should cause the gate to open afterwardsIf you destroy the Fractured Pillar just as the Devourer Catapult is about to kill you, the cut scene will trigger and the quest will keep going, but your party will have been defeatedIf you are attacked by Black Wolves when you first get outside, they will continue attacking you even if you Hide or Feign Death.
    Gyala HatcherySome of the groups at point 6 might fail to spawn when doing the mission via the back way. To prevent this, stay with the turtles and avoid letting them stray too far.The Young Turtles at the end of the mission sometimes wander off past the Afflicted.
    Blacktide DenIt is possible to pass through some of the Kournan Guard barriers before speaking to Captain Besuz. There is no benefit in doing so and requires more time than finishing the mission normally.Occasionally, General Kahyet and her group will appear, but fail to turn hostile. There is no work-around; you must restart the mission.
    The Jade QuarryThe carriers on both sides will sometimes move in the wrong direction with jade, causing the affected team to be at a disadvantage.If a carrier meets another carrier and is hit with Carrier Defense the carrier will drop its jade but still continue back to base as if it was still carrying it, therefore wasting a journey.
    Unwaking WatersIn the end cinematic, the gender of the voice of the lead party member is often reversed (e.g. male Assassins will get a female voice).
    Fort RanikIf the boss and its mob (that are encountered at point 1B on the map) are not killed, the remaining allied NPCs (Ascalonian Warriors, Master Armin Saberlin, Ascalon Militia, Ascalonian Rangers) will continue to follow the party leader through the entire mission and Master Armin Saberlin will not offer the bonus objective (which is not required to complete the bonus). This makes the mission easier, since the NPCs will continue to fight alongside your party instead of stopping at point 1B.Sometimes the soldier that is captured with Trooper Deeter Saberlin is stuck in the entry of the prison, preventing you from talking to Deeter Saberlin to complete the bonus.
    Consulate DocksThe first Field Commander may sometimes spawn beyond the closed gate. If you do not have any ranged spell attacks, you may need to restart the mission to get the Master's reward.
    The Eternal GroveAs the first wave of Luxon approach from the west, the party can intercept these enemies as a large group. Killing the Siege Turtle before it has reached its destination may prevent the mission from continuing onto the Afflicted stage, however.Sometimes Siege Turtles or Luxon Rangers on one of the small hills may remain hostile after the intermediate cinematic. The Afflicted will still attack them and vice-versa.
    Dunes of DespairIf the Ghostly Hero dies after capturing the shrine but before the party manages to trigger the cutscene, and Goss dies at the same time or shortly after the party is wiped, the cutscene will still trigger. After the cutscene the party and the Hero will be resurrected, but the party leader will have a "return to outpost"-prompt. The party can still continue the mission as long as the prompt is not hit, and even the mission timer will keep counting. The bonus objective can even be completed as normal when using this approach, but once the timer hits zero, the mission itself will not complete. However, a Zaishen Mission will update for both normal and bonus objectives.The bridge will still fall if you talk to the Ghostly Hero before he uses Claim Resource at the start of the mission.The third bridge leading to the altar will sometimes not lower even if the Ghostly Hero has used Claim Resource.Occasionally the Ghostly Hero will become stuck while under attack by the first Siege Wurm, in which case he will not activate Claim Resource to lower the bridge and stops following the player. He won't continue onward until you slay the Siege Wurm on the other side.
    Nolani AcademyIf you choose to open the gate at the beginning of the mission, there is a small chance that
  • The nearby Charr will vanish or
  • Some groups of Charr will attempt to invade the academy from the back.
  • Prince Rurik will freeze, forcing you to restart the mission (i.e. if you open the gate before he finishes speaking).If you choose not to follow Rurik after opening the gate to Rin, he will avoid the Elementals and skip to cinematic 2.If Bonfaaz Burntfur dies during cinematic 2 (i.e. due to degeneration), the mission will not end and your party will not be taken to Yak's Bend. The mission will register as completed, however (the map icon will update and you will get credit for your storybook). Additionally, if you wipe, you will not receive an option to return to the outpost, you will have to re-zone manually.
  • Thirsty RiverIn the last round, Lyssha Suss's (Custodian Phebus's) team may be tagged as Defeated without even having been engaged. If this happens, the player can ignore this group and finish the mission by just killing the other two teams.Sometimes, a chest will spawn at the entrance to Issah Sshay's chamber which the Ghostly Hero may become stuck on. If this happens the team must resign and begin the mission again.If you pull enemies to the Ghostly Hero before he opens the first gate, he may spend too long fighting them and never open the gate.
    Bloodstone FenThe first Druid can get stuck on the first pair of Jungle Guardians, a bad chest spawn, or a boulder. You can attempt to free the Druid from the Guardians by pulling them a short distance to the side, until the Druid can pass.A Druid can get stuck on one of the spirits summoned by the Guardians. You can kill the spirits without failing the bonus.The bonus objective can still be completed by talking to the Elder Druid as long as all four Druids have been spawned prior to the death of any Jungle Guardian, despite notification of the bonus objective having been failed.
    Thunderhead KeepSometimes King Jalis Ironhammer will get stuck on a hill near the beginning of the mission. If this occurs, you must restart the mission, and try again.Sometimes if you take the bonus the first boss will stay outside the walls. Even if you kill that mob the spawns will stop. If this occurs, you must restart the mission, and try again.
    Service: Practice, DummyResigning while the timer is up will mark the quest as completed.
    Deactivating R.O.X.During the fight with R.O.X., he will sometimes get caught on a wall, and stop attacking.Sometimes the statue of Dwayna fails to load, and acolytes sent there will provide no blessing.
    The Great Norn AlemootFor various reasons, the quest can be completed without finishing all the activities:
  • You automatically succeed once three pigs enter the stables. You can use this to your advantage, by body-blocking the pigs into the pen before starting the timer. It takes longer, as the hogs are harder to control, but you have all the time you need this way. Also:
    • Sometimes three will reach the corral on their own.
    • Sometimes the game server registers three pigs entering, although you see something different on-screen.
  • If you have completed up to the slalom, you can retake the challenge and succeed by heading straight for the pigs, who will now be easier to herd.If you apply an Extreme Makeover Credit to change gender after taking the quest, but before completion, you will have to finish it an extra time before you can proceed to the subsequent quests.You can see the edge of the world by running into the next zone.As with any time-dependent tasks, you can fail this quest due to lag. Consider waiting until your ping is low.
  • Gate of MadnessUndead Lich occasionally stays an ally.Lyssa's Muse in the end cinematic says "You must make a choice a mortal can make" While the text reads "Only a mortal can make".Sometimes, despite having killed the Lich, Shiro and all Margonites in the shrine area, the mission will not end. This forces you to redo the entire mission, despite having completed all requirements. This can happen when sending heroes/henchmen ahead to capture the shrines and aggroing Shiro or the Lich before the dialogue begins. Breaking aggro and waiting for the dialogue may be enough to avoid this. The way to avoid this is to recall all of your heroes/henchmen back to you, outside of the Temple, then run in as a group. Running into the Temple while your heroes/henchmen are already inside will result in the dialogue not triggering, which may result in the bug.Sometimes, the gates will not open, you will have to restart the mission if this happens.
    Don't Fear the ReapersIn the German translation, all words are capitalized.In the French translation, Reaper of the Labyrinth's dialogue does not make sense, speaking about the first step of the quest (using a Transmogrifier Tonic and speaking to the Voice of Grenth).The door to the inside of the Hall of Judgment is visible but does not collide with other objects. You can walk through it to see the inside. This is useful if you are interested in seeing Dhuum's lair but cannot be bothered with the illimitable prerequisites.
    Borlis PassSometimes players get stuck on the Firing Levers or when they touch the Storm Beacons. This can be remedied by using the /stuck special command or having another player in the party trigger the next cinematic.When the two Summit Engineers are killed at the gate, sometimes the gate doesn't open if they are killed by a minion or by a spellcaster.Sometimes if the gate leading to the drake is destroyed with a powder keg while the lever is being used at the same time, the door will appear open but cannot be pass through and the bonus cannot be completed.
    Ascalon AcademyShould Prince Rurik die, the mission will not fail; instead a resurrection notice with a countdown of 3 seconds pops up, with no end effect.
    Minister Cho's EstateIt is possible for the Sickened Guards to kill the infected Minister Cho before you have a chance to. Thus, the mission will become impossible to complete and players will have to resign and retry.
    Imperial SanctumSometimes there is a malfunction with Shiro's skill: Meditation of the Reaper. He will be able to take damage while in meditation, but the skill won't register any damage taken. It will therefore last the maximum of 30sec.Sometimes there is a malfunction with Shiro's skill: Echoing Banishment. Heroes sometimes get taken with you when Shiro uses Echoing Banishment.
    Ring of FireWhen players pick up the Spectral Essence, the quest log will update to say the bonus is complete. However, players will not receive credit for bonus until the party member carrying the Essence takes it to the Ancient Seer.
    Abaddon's MouthIf you let Leah Stone run ahead of you, and out of your compass range, it is possible for her to make it to her resting place unharmed, successfully granting you bonus.If the western Ether Seal is fighting Dryders and isn't allowed to finish them off, its gate will not open after being killed.
    The Battle of JahaiIf you do this mission with a female character and play an emote with gender specific text it will ignore that you are playing as Turai Osssa and still use the female form she/her instead of he/him.
    Jokanur DiggingsIf the player activates the Trial of Perseverance then runs back and stays in the area of the Trial of Fire, Kahdash will finish placing the Stone Tablet on the pedestal but will die immediately after the cinematic. This counts as a Sunspear Ghost death towards the bonus objective.
    Venta CemeteryIf you fail to neutralize a guard post before your position is given away, the map marker will not change color. However, your quest log will still count it as neutralized.Guard Post Commanders may fail to spawn at guard posts. When all other enemies are slain it still counts as neutralized, but the timer will run out and incoming siege attacks strike the area after a short delay.Players have reported losing progress towards the Survivor title after dying due to a siege attack (from the fort), even though this type of death is not supposed to count.
    The Ebony Citadel of MallyxGaze of Fury may sometimes spawn the spirit but leave the Anguished Soul alive.
    Sunjiang DistrictBoth the Spear of Archemorus and the Urn of Saint Viktor are supposed to be destroyed at the end of the mission; however, if a player was holding them (or dropped them just before the defeat of the final boss), both can be seen briefly during the cinematic.
    Raisu PalaceIf one of the allies you choose at the beginning of the mission dies near an enemy's Restoration spirit, that ally will be revived when the spirit dies.
    Auspicious BeginningsSometimes Gwen endlessly repeats the last dialogue in the Hall of Monuments.If you fail the mission by swapping out Keiran's Bow too soon, the game incorrectly states you must equip Togo's Staff to play the mission.
    Zaishen EliteIf a Zaishen Fighter henchman is in your party you can't resign.
    Training ArenaPlayers can enter this arena in a party of up to eight that can consist of players and heroes, thus being able to fight eight versus four.
    Zos Shivros ChannelWhen the turtles start spawning, they will stop attacking and just walk back and forth near their spawn point, allowing for infinite points and faction without any risk or effort
    Cantha Courier CrisisBeyond the square where you encounter Jade Brotherhood mobs appearing in waves, there's a chance that if you trigger hidden mobs when Falken is knocked out, he may stand there and no longer move. If this happens, you are forced to restart the quest.
    Iron Mines of MoladuneSometimes, Markis will get stuck in a chest and will not arrive to the fortress. Players will have to backtrack his route from the original spawning location to find him.
    Hell's PrecipiceOccasionally, one of the portals does not appear. In this case, closing the other two portals does not help, but should be attempted.On rare occasions, the seer will be dead before you can trigger the bonus, even if you stayed out of compass distance.
    Divinity CoastThe objectives fail to state that one must talk to Lionguard Minah to complete the bonus.Sometimes the Eye will disappear if you separate too far from a human companion you're running the mission with.
    The Battle for Lion's ArchCompleting this stage of The War in Kryta before this stage appears in your quest log can make it difficult to proceed with the intermediary quests. If this happens, you can work around the issue by either following the manual walkthrough or by completing any of the available wanted quests and waiting to accept its reward until you have completed all the intermediary quests and The Battle for Lion's Arch.
    AnnihilatorThe Quest Log says the quest is given in Lion's Arch, instead of Embark Beach.
    Annihilator 2: Searing DayThe Quest Log says the quest is given in Lion's Arch, instead of Embark Beach.The Bandit Firestarters are hostile to each other.
    The Final ConfrontationElite Ministry Captains and Elite Ministry Zealots have their name swapped during this quest.
    Jennur's HordeOn rare occasion, killing both additional Harbingers and their support groups will not progress the bonus objective ("You have defeated [0 or 1] of 2 additional Harbingers."). Players will have to restart the mission to get master's reward. (Let the Bonus Harbingers hit you before you drop the Light and kill them, the bug seems to trigger when they get killed before they have the chance to land a single blow.)
    Deactivating P.O.X.Sometimes after P.O.X. goes haywire you cannot interact because whenever you click it automatically makes you use your first skill.
    The WildsIt is possible, that after destroying the last Entangling Roots in the Western most part of the mission, the ivy gate will vanish but still be impassable.

The mission cannot be completed either way.It is possible, that after killing both Centaur Chieftains, you will not get credit for completion of the bonus objective. The bonus will have to be repeated in this case, although the mission can still be completed as normal.

    NPC bugs[edit]

    Scrying PoolIf you fail to activate a vision before the next one is available, that vision will not show up for that character until he/she finishes the Against the Destroyers. For example, unlocking the Third Vision before viewing the Second Vision means you cannot see the Second Vision until you complete A Time for Heroes. Completion of Eye of the North unlocks all four visions.When deciding which vision to show you when you look deep into the pool, Against the Destroyers sub-quests for which you have earned but not accepted the reward are counted among those you have completed and so the wrong vision will be shown. For example, if you complete G.O.L.E.M. but do not accept the reward for The Knowledgeable Asura, completing one of the other sub-quests will unlock the Third Vision instead of the Second Vision. Claiming the reward will then cause the Scrying Pool to offer the same vision again.

    Reaper of the Twin Serpent MountainsSometimes, this Reaper can be killed from foes popped during the quest Demon Assassin, even after killing the Slayer to complete the quest.

    Wanted by the Shining BladeAccepting the reward for The Battle for Lion's Arch after beginning The War in Kryta but before this stage appears in your quest log can cause issues as it will mark The War in Kryta as complete, preventing you from doing the quests skipped. You can work around this by following the manual walk through, unless you have completed both Ebon Vanguard Allies and Asuran Allies. If you have completed the two quests, you will be unable to trigger the dialogue with Princess Salma that allows you to take the Wanted! quests targeting the three inquisitors (Bauer, Lashona, and Lovisa).
    Cyndr the Mountain HeartOccasionally, removing Cyndr's carapace will have no effect on his immunity throughout the fight.

    Location bugs[edit]

    The DeepThe actual environment effect does not match the description. The teleport and knockdown effect occurs at 30 seconds the first time and the duration between knockdowns begins to shorten every time it triggers.
    Ruins of SurmiaPrince Rurik can sometimes get obstructed by a chest spawn or get stuck on the stairs before the tar area. If this happens, you'll have to restart the mission and try again.If you approach the imprisoned Mages before opening the drawbridge, sometimes one of them will run straight through the closed door and follow you around until he is killed or brought within range of an obelisk.Sometimes a charr can spawn underground near the imprisoned mages gate.Sometimes Breena doesn't appear at point 2, possibly killed by the Charr boss near her. When this happens, you'll have to restart the mission and try again.The Flame that the Ember Bearers carry can get stuck on the wall of the tar pit or any minions, the Ember Bearers will carry on but when they get to the gate it doesn't open. However, if you pull them near The Flame and run off it will begin to follow them again.Sometimes the Ember Bearers will get caught at the gate they enter through and prevent the exit gate from being opened. The bonus is still completable as long as the entrance gate opens, but you will not be able to use the exit gate as a shortcut.
    Cathedral of FlamesThere are several rare bugs that can prevent the party from completing the dungeon:
    • Level 1: The Keeper (and minions) can spawn behind the door to the next level, making them impossible to kill without enough ranged damage.
    • Level 2: Just after entering, the whole party might automatically die and resurrection will not occur.
    • Level 3: If the Keymaster of Murakai is allowed to travel all the way back to its resting point, the dungeon key may drop over the edge of the lava stream, making it unreachable.Some foes do not consistently engage the party as expected:
    • Level 1:
      • The group of Charr near the area map may get stuck in the wall.
      • Leaving Faze Magekiller just out of the Danger Zone will leave him friendly and his group will attack him.
      • After The Keeper is defeated, the mobs that subsequently spawn do not attack unless engaged, even if they are inside the aggro bubble.
    • Level 2:
      • Leaving Tyndir Flamecaller just out of the Danger Zone will leave him friendly and his group will attack him.
      • The Master and his minions sometimes spawn behind the door to the third level, making them harder to kill.The collectors Dextarr Dirtdigger and Lars Bridgeater do not appear on the mission map.There are graphical display errors when standing in certain parts of the room with Murakai.
    Secret Lair of the SnowmenIf Koris Deeprunner dies at Freezie and does not self-resurrect, the dungeon chest might not spawn. Similarly, if he gets stuck (e.g. on a bridge or locked chest), he will not reach the final room and you will not be able to complete the dungeon. If that happens, flag any heroes or henchmen out of the way and then maneuver around the NPC to guide him around the obstruction and back to the final room.The Snowmen near the second shrine sometimes spawn inside a wall; they can be ignored or killed using ranged, non-projectile attacks.
    Costume Brawl (outpost)It is possible to pass through the invisible barrier near the guards and access the area beneath the waterfall.
    IstanIt is possible to attain an 8-person party in Sunspear Great Hall by completing the Blacktide Den mission with 3 heroes and the 4 henchmen found there. Any henchmen not present in Sunspear Great Hall will be removed from the party.
    The same applies for Kamadan after completing the Venta Cemetery mission or talking to Dockmaster Dimedeh in Dajkah Inlet.
    Central Transfer ChamberEach time you complete Destruction's Depths, you will receive a "Quest Added" message for A Time for Heroes, whether you had the quest in your log or not. This bug continues until your character completes A Time for Heroes.
    Ice Caves of SorrowA little while after the first Stone Summit group the mob of Mursaat passes on the frozen lake, there is a Shiverpeak Chest which the Mursaat sometimes will get stuck on and stop moving. If this happens, you will have to retry the mission or attempt to have an infused player pull them away from it. The Mursaat stops after the stone bridge.Sometimes Evennia will not follow you, sometimes she may follow Saidra and gets killed by Mursaat; you must restart the mission if this happens.
    Ravenheart GloomSometimes the Greater Darkness does not spawn after completing Deathbringer Company
    Norrhart DomainsIf you attack the two Jotun with a longbow and pull them out of the ring, they could follow the party without losing their invulnerability. If you approach the ring and the auto-healing Jotun turn hostile, it will be impossible to vanquish the area.
    Tahnnakai TempleSometimes the released spirits can get stuck on an object, allied spirit, or minion and therefore cannot reach the door to unlock the next area. NPC allies such as Master Togo and Brother Mhenlo can get in the way too. You have time to wait for your spirits to expire, you can move the party to adjust the minion's position, and (sometimes) moving the party will also distract the spirit past the obstacle. There is no work-around if the spirit is completely stuck on a corner or chest. Should that happen, you must restart the mission.If a chest spawns in the far corner of Bound Jaizhanju's area, the item from it can drop in an unreachable area inside the pipe.
    ArborstoneSometimes Danika will get stuck on one of the randomly spawned chests. Have the urn bearer attempt to drag her out of it. You will have to restart if she is permanently stuck.If you leave the central area without waiting for Danika to follow, she will run through the center route on her own. There is a high probability of her dying if you took an alternate route, as she will run through the spawns attempting to get to the end of the mission.
    Eastern FrontierOccasionally a group of Grawl might spawn inside a rock on one of the cliff faces between Surmia and Frontier Gate, preventing you from retrieving their drops.There is a cliff just east of Ruins of Surmia that does not clip correctly, allowing you to slide down.
    Maishang HillsThe resurrection shrine near Eredon Terrace has the statues of Dwayna and Balthazar mixed up. Only the Champion of Balthazar can appear.
    Dejarin EstateFor characters that chose Margrid the Sly over Master of Whispers during the quest Mysterious Message, or who have accepted the quest but not yet begun it, Dehjah and three Water Djinn will always spawn near the northern exit. These NPCs are actually part of the quest Secrets in the Shadow, which can no longer be completed.After you have killed every soldier in the central fort's garrison, the Commander on the nearby bridge can still call Kournan Siege "to summon siege fire from any nearby garrisons".
    Issnur IslesFor non-Nightfall characters (only), there are several quest-related spawns or triggers that are incorrect. These quests cannot be done by non-Nightfall characters yet they affect the instance.
    Pogahn PassageSometimes Guard Linko will not show up. In that case you will have to re-do the mission for the bonus.For some characters the map will not be uncovered during the cinematic, even after moving using the keyboard
    Nundu BaySometimes the Margonites will stop spawning. This is irrelevant, you may safely exit the village and kill the Harbinger of Nightfall.Sometimes the Harbinger of Twilight will not spawn after defeating Priest Zein Zuu, and you must restart the mission.
    Turai's ProcessionTormented Lands will spawn whether or not Troubled Lands is in the Quest Log. They only stop appearing after the quest has been completed, but you can safely complete the vanquish while ignoring any respawned foes.
    Fronis Irontoe's LairSometimes the locked chest will spawn inside a wall.Sometimes Kilroy may get stuck behind the locked chest that has spawned in his way, if you lure a Stone Summit near him he will often get free, otherwise you will have to continue without him.The first Enslaved Ettin doesn't refresh the duration of Scroll of Rampager's Insight, but works properly with Scroll of Berserker's Insight.
    Oola's LabTwo bugs can force the party to restart the dungeon: (a) On the first level, the gate leading to the middle area sometimes fails to open. (b) The first floor Dungeon Key sometimes fails to appear after killing Xien. There are no work-arounds for either problem.On the second level, the AI-controlled creatures will attack and kill fire traps. Once they start attacking, you can also cause AoE damage to them.
    Vizunah SquareThis mission highlights many deficiencies in the NPC pathfinding AI:
  • It is possible for a henchman-only party to get stuck behind a chest, forcing you to either restart the mission or continue alone. If the henchman party is starting from the Foreign Quarter, this can happen before they reach the first meeting point. It is possible for Togo or Mhenlo to get stuck in the same way.
  • It is possible for Togo to just get stuck for no reason, which causes the last fight to fail to initialize, making the final battle of the mission impossible to complete.
  • If you bring minions, Mhenlo can get distracted in healing them, causing him not to reach his waypoints. A sign that this has happened is Togo standing still some distance behind the party. If this happens, try moving back towards Togo; when Mhenlo gets close enough, the missed waypoint will trigger and Togo will start moving again.
  • Heart of AbaddonRazah appears to say each of his lines twice.
    Polymock CrossingOften, if you spam or even just hit a skill after the the opponent has just drawn his second piece, but before the countdown has completed, your energy bar will maintain a display of nearly-full, however the game will display the message that you have no energy. This has only been observed when fighting Dune Teardrinker
    Tihark OrchardAs with Margrid in "No Me, No Kormir", Morgahn will call you an Istani even if you are a Prophecies or Factions character.
    Fort AspenwoodLuxons do not win immediately after Master Architect Gunther is killed, there is a slight time delay (usually a few seconds), but Kurzicks win immediately when the progress bar reaches 100%. Because of this, if the timer is close to completion and Gunther is killed, the Kurzicks will occasionally win anyway.Sometimes when a command point has been taken by the Kurzicks and re-taken by the Luxons, a team of 8 Luxon Warriors will spawn rather than the usual 4.Sometimes the game will refer to the Refined Amber Mine as the Green Amber Mine, such as when it's capped.Gods' Vengeance can reach over 100% by giving amber to Gunther right before 100% is reached, allowing Kurzick players to receive more than 4,000 (up to 4,060) Imperial faction for winning.
    Jaya BluffsGull Hookbeak and Yorrt Strongjaw will always spawn for non-Factions characters, despite the fact that non-Factions characters cannot acquire either of the quests that these two NPCs can offer.
    Golem Tutorial SimulationCapturing Area One while the Image of Zinn is still explaining the first part of the hero tutorial will cause the tutorial to get stuck as the Image of Zinn does not recognize that the area has already been captured. The quest must then be restarted, as no further progress can be made.
    Gyala HatcherySome of the groups at point 6 might fail to spawn when doing the mission via the back way. To prevent this, stay with the turtles and avoid letting them stray too far.The Young Turtles at the end of the mission sometimes wander off past the Afflicted.
    Regent ValleyThe fog in the northwest corner of the map does not uncover for an unknown reason, so it will not look like it is explored on the map; exploring this part will still add to your Cartographer title.
    Eredon TerraceIf your alliance owns the town, there is some missing collision for a cliff on the other side of the bridge, allowing you to explore a large area of land that is otherwise inaccessable.
    Blacktide DenIt is possible to pass through some of the Kournan Guard barriers before speaking to Captain Besuz. There is no benefit in doing so and requires more time than finishing the mission normally.Occasionally, General Kahyet and her group will appear, but fail to turn hostile. There is no work-around; you must restart the mission.
    The Jade QuarryThe carriers on both sides will sometimes move in the wrong direction with jade, causing the affected team to be at a disadvantage.If a carrier meets another carrier and is hit with Carrier Defense the carrier will drop its jade but still continue back to base as if it was still carrying it, therefore wasting a journey.
    Unwaking WatersIn the end cinematic, the gender of the voice of the lead party member is often reversed (e.g. male Assassins will get a female voice).
    Fort RanikIf the boss and its mob (that are encountered at point 1B on the map) are not killed, the remaining allied NPCs (Ascalonian Warriors, Master Armin Saberlin, Ascalon Militia, Ascalonian Rangers) will continue to follow the party leader through the entire mission and Master Armin Saberlin will not offer the bonus objective (which is not required to complete the bonus). This makes the mission easier, since the NPCs will continue to fight alongside your party instead of stopping at point 1B.Sometimes the soldier that is captured with Trooper Deeter Saberlin is stuck in the entry of the prison, preventing you from talking to Deeter Saberlin to complete the bonus.
    Consulate DocksThe first Field Commander may sometimes spawn beyond the closed gate. If you do not have any ranged spell attacks, you may need to restart the mission to get the Master's reward.
    The Eternal GroveAs the first wave of Luxon approach from the west, the party can intercept these enemies as a large group. Killing the Siege Turtle before it has reached its destination may prevent the mission from continuing onto the Afflicted stage, however.Sometimes Siege Turtles or Luxon Rangers on one of the small hills may remain hostile after the intermediate cinematic. The Afflicted will still attack them and vice-versa.
    Raven's PointThe final Destroyers may be friendly, making the dungeon impossible to complete.
    Dunes of DespairIf the Ghostly Hero dies after capturing the shrine but before the party manages to trigger the cutscene, and Goss dies at the same time or shortly after the party is wiped, the cutscene will still trigger. After the cutscene the party and the Hero will be resurrected, but the party leader will have a "return to outpost"-prompt. The party can still continue the mission as long as the prompt is not hit, and even the mission timer will keep counting. The bonus objective can even be completed as normal when using this approach, but once the timer hits zero, the mission itself will not complete. However, a Zaishen Mission will update for both normal and bonus objectives.The bridge will still fall if you talk to the Ghostly Hero before he uses Claim Resource at the start of the mission.The third bridge leading to the altar will sometimes not lower even if the Ghostly Hero has used Claim Resource.Occasionally the Ghostly Hero will become stuck while under attack by the first Siege Wurm, in which case he will not activate Claim Resource to lower the bridge and stops following the player. He won't continue onward until you slay the Siege Wurm on the other side.
    Nolani AcademyIf you choose to open the gate at the beginning of the mission, there is a small chance that
  • The nearby Charr will vanish or
  • Some groups of Charr will attempt to invade the academy from the back.
  • Prince Rurik will freeze, forcing you to restart the mission (i.e. if you open the gate before he finishes speaking).If you choose not to follow Rurik after opening the gate to Rin, he will avoid the Elementals and skip to cinematic 2.If Bonfaaz Burntfur dies during cinematic 2 (i.e. due to degeneration), the mission will not end and your party will not be taken to Yak's Bend. The mission will register as completed, however (the map icon will update and you will get credit for your storybook). Additionally, if you wipe, you will not receive an option to return to the outpost, you will have to re-zone manually.
  • Gunnar's HoldYou cannot auto-walk (double-click on anything or click+space) to any NPC located in closed non-passable pavilions: auto-walking instead takes you on a straight line path to your target, and you stop at any obstacle, even a slanted obstacle that normally allows you to "slide" sideways. Apparently, the pathfinding AI is unable to work correctly in such case.
    Thirsty RiverIn the last round, Lyssha Suss's (Custodian Phebus's) team may be tagged as Defeated without even having been engaged. If this happens, the player can ignore this group and finish the mission by just killing the other two teams.Sometimes, a chest will spawn at the entrance to Issah Sshay's chamber which the Ghostly Hero may become stuck on. If this happens the team must resign and begin the mission again.If you pull enemies to the Ghostly Hero before he opens the first gate, he may spend too long fighting them and never open the gate.
    Deldrimor BowlThe resurrection shrines in this area do not always show the light animation of an active resurrection shrine:
  • Upon entry from Anvil Rock, the shrine animation at the Anvil Rock shrine does not work.
  • Upon entry from Beacon's Perch, the shrine animation at the Beacon's Perch shrine does not work.
  • Bloodstone FenThe first Druid can get stuck on the first pair of Jungle Guardians, a bad chest spawn, or a boulder. You can attempt to free the Druid from the Guardians by pulling them a short distance to the side, until the Druid can pass.A Druid can get stuck on one of the spirits summoned by the Guardians. You can kill the spirits without failing the bonus.The bonus objective can still be completed by talking to the Elder Druid as long as all four Druids have been spawned prior to the death of any Jungle Guardian, despite notification of the bonus objective having been failed.
    Consulate Docks (outpost)A character may ferry other characters to this outpost way before they should have access to it, while normally when characters that have not fulfilled the requirements to enter would be left out of the party when other players enter it, as happens in Vizunah Square (Local Quarter) without first completing Zen Daijun.
    Green Hills CountySouth of the Barradin Estate, in the middle of the right angle formed by the water channel, there is a small area that will block passage as if there were a tree, although no tree is present.West from The Barradin Estate (to the right of the Resurrection Shrine), there is a wall section in view, but it doesn't block access to the hill just behind it.East of the Barradin Estate there is a wall section in view which can be entered. The only means of exit is by using the /stuck command.)The charmable animals and the Moss Spiders can sometimes wander inside the Barradin Estate, totally bypassing the portal as if it isn't even there.
    Thunderhead KeepSometimes King Jalis Ironhammer will get stuck on a hill near the beginning of the mission. If this occurs, you must restart the mission, and try again.Sometimes if you take the bonus the first boss will stay outside the walls. Even if you kill that mob the spawns will stop. If this occurs, you must restart the mission, and try again.
    The Fissure of WoeOn rare occasions, a Shadow Ranger will spawn inside the Tower of Courage, preventing quest completion unless your party can kill it without having a line of sight.
    Zehlon ReachFor non-Nightfall characters (only), there are several quest-related spawns or triggers that are incorrect. These quests cannot be done by non-Nightfall characters yet they affect the instance.
    Shards of OrrOn very rare occasions, Fendi Nin will not spawn. Unfortunately, there is no work-around; you must restart the dungeon.There is an interval of approximately 2 seconds during which Fendi respawns and the soul disappears (these two events do not occur simultaneously - Fendi respawns first). If the soul has been killed before its disappearance and after Fendi's respawn, its death will trigger the chest but will not unspawn Fendi and the archers.
    Boreas Seabed (explorable area)On the bridge leading to the 1,000 Daggers guild hall, there are "blind spots" where allies and foes can become invisible. This error is also seen in Xaquang Skyway.
    Nundu Bay (outpost)It is possible to walk through a section of solid rock on the eastern side of Nundu Bay. The rock juts out slightly and can be walked through if you hug the northern wall as you approach it. You must exit the same way you came however as there is a piece of impassable terrain on the other side.
    ArchipelagosThere is a bridge near the Jade Flats, where the coral below can strike allies crossing over.
    The Ruptured HeartAfter completing the quest Pilgrimage, Allura still continues to spawn at the Bleached Bones. However, right after you trigger her spawn, she will die (or unspawn).
    Gate of MadnessUndead Lich occasionally stays an ally.Lyssa's Muse in the end cinematic says "You must make a choice a mortal can make" While the text reads "Only a mortal can make".Sometimes, despite having killed the Lich, Shiro and all Margonites in the shrine area, the mission will not end. This forces you to redo the entire mission, despite having completed all requirements. This can happen when sending heroes/henchmen ahead to capture the shrines and aggroing Shiro or the Lich before the dialogue begins. Breaking aggro and waiting for the dialogue may be enough to avoid this. The way to avoid this is to recall all of your heroes/henchmen back to you, outside of the Temple, then run in as a group. Running into the Temple while your heroes/henchmen are already inside will result in the dialogue not triggering, which may result in the bug.Sometimes, the gates will not open, you will have to restart the mission if this happens.
    Bloodstone CavesPoison Dart traps shoot faster than indicated, firing up to 15 darts per second.
    Borlis PassSometimes players get stuck on the Firing Levers or when they touch the Storm Beacons. This can be remedied by using the /stuck special command or having another player in the party trigger the next cinematic.When the two Summit Engineers are killed at the gate, sometimes the gate doesn't open if they are killed by a minion or by a spellcaster.Sometimes if the gate leading to the drake is destroyed with a powder keg while the lever is being used at the same time, the door will appear open but cannot be pass through and the bonus cannot be completed.
    Ascalon AcademyShould Prince Rurik die, the mission will not fail; instead a resurrection notice with a countdown of 3 seconds pops up, with no end effect.
    Minister Cho's EstateIt is possible for the Sickened Guards to kill the infected Minister Cho before you have a chance to. Thus, the mission will become impossible to complete and players will have to resign and retry.
    Vloxen ExcavationsIf Taskmaster Bellok is killed and the key retrieved, then the dungeon is exited or failed, sometimes if the quest is not abandoned, Bellok will not drop the key the next time one attempts the dungeon.
    Panjiang PeninsulaAlong the western coast you can see a brown colored area where the map is intended to end. It seems similar to the end of the world in The Great Northern Wall mission.
    Imperial SanctumSometimes there is a malfunction with Shiro's skill: Meditation of the Reaper. He will be able to take damage while in meditation, but the skill won't register any damage taken. It will therefore last the maximum of 30sec.Sometimes there is a malfunction with Shiro's skill: Echoing Banishment. Heroes sometimes get taken with you when Shiro uses Echoing Banishment.
    Ring of FireWhen players pick up the Spectral Essence, the quest log will update to say the bonus is complete. However, players will not receive credit for bonus until the party member carrying the Essence takes it to the Ancient Seer.
    Abaddon's MouthIf you let Leah Stone run ahead of you, and out of your compass range, it is possible for her to make it to her resting place unharmed, successfully granting you bonus.If the western Ether Seal is fighting Dryders and isn't allowed to finish them off, its gate will not open after being killed.
    Unwaking Waters (explorable area)Two additional groups of Outcasts will spawn in areas unreachable by foot while Outcasts in the Quarry is active (even though none of the quest objectives take place in Unwaking Waters): one on the path traversed during the mission, the other inside the Kurzick outpost.Occasionally characters will resurrect at the portal to the Harvest Temple even after activating the resurrection shrine (via having more unspent faction of their allegiance, killing them or bribing the priest).
    Sacnoth ValleyAfter extended periods of time, the animation of the fire in the burning forest will freeze and will not resume until you have exited and restarted the game.
    Chantry of SecretsThe waterfall freezes if you have been logged on for several hours. The only way to fix this is to restart the game.
    The Dragon's Lair (outpost)The sand pit near the eastern-most pillar does not correctly overlap with the ground. This causes players to clip through a small area of the ground.
    Sunqua ValeWulk Cragfist spawns as a hostile for all characters and turns into an ally after being defeated, despite the fact that only Factions characters can take his quest, Revenge of the Yeti.Sometimes, a Water Buffalo (near the second rabbit cage) will spawn in the middle of two trees and be unable to move.Inside Zhengjo Temple, two Mantid Hatchlings will attack the Mantid Monitor near to where they spawn.
    Catacombs of KathandraxRoaring Ethers sometimes spawn inside a wall and walk through a wall in level 2 and get stuck.
    Jokanur DiggingsIf the player activates the Trial of Perseverance then runs back and stays in the area of the Trial of Fire, Kahdash will finish placing the Stone Tablet on the pedestal but will die immediately after the cinematic. This counts as a Sunspear Ghost death towards the bonus objective.
    Venta CemeteryIf you fail to neutralize a guard post before your position is given away, the map marker will not change color. However, your quest log will still count it as neutralized.Guard Post Commanders may fail to spawn at guard posts. When all other enemies are slain it still counts as neutralized, but the timer will run out and incoming siege attacks strike the area after a short delay.Players have reported losing progress towards the Survivor title after dying due to a siege attack (from the fort), even though this type of death is not supposed to count.
    Spearhead PeakSometimes, a mob spawns beyond the portal to Grenth's Footprint.
    The Ebony Citadel of MallyxGaze of Fury may sometimes spawn the spirit but leave the Anguished Soul alive.
    Sunjiang DistrictBoth the Spear of Archemorus and the Urn of Saint Viktor are supposed to be destroyed at the end of the mission; however, if a player was holding them (or dropped them just before the defeat of the final boss), both can be seen briefly during the cinematic.
    Regent Valley (pre-Searing)Near the entrance to the Secret Garden, the large rock to the right allows you to walk right through it.
    The UnderworldIf your party begins the fight with Dhuum before King Frozenwind walks past the gate, he will be stuck outside. About a minute after your party defeats Dhuum, King Frozenwind and the Ice Elementals will spawn inside the Hall of Judgment. Sometimes King Frozenwind will not appear once Dhuum dies and the chest will not appear as a result.
    Hall of JudgmentDuring Something Wicked This Way Comes and Don't Fear the Reapers you can go in the Hall of Judgment. You can pass through the door.
    Raisu PalaceIf one of the allies you choose at the beginning of the mission dies near an enemy's Restoration spirit, that ally will be revived when the spirit dies.
    Zaishen EliteIf a Zaishen Fighter henchman is in your party you can't resign.
    Deldrimor War CampThe music in this outpost will cutoff if you walk behind the Xunlai Chest.
    Training ArenaPlayers can enter this arena in a party of up to eight that can consist of players and heroes, thus being able to fight eight versus four.
    Zos Shivros ChannelWhen the turtles start spawning, they will stop attacking and just walk back and forth near their spawn point, allowing for infinite points and faction without any risk or effort
    Iron Mines of MoladuneSometimes, Markis will get stuck in a chest and will not arrive to the fortress. Players will have to backtrack his route from the original spawning location to find him.
    Hell's PrecipiceOccasionally, one of the portals does not appear. In this case, closing the other two portals does not help, but should be attempted.On rare occasions, the seer will be dead before you can trigger the bonus, even if you stayed out of compass distance.
    The Black CurtainA Locked Chest may spawn behind the portal to Talmark Wilderness, making it reachable only by shadow stepping. Be careful of popup spawns behind the portal to avoid unintended zoning.
    Divinity CoastThe objectives fail to state that one must talk to Lionguard Minah to complete the bonus.Sometimes the Eye will disappear if you separate too far from a human companion you're running the mission with.
    Mehtani KeysThe resurrection shrine that summons Lyssa's Muse in the village on the northernmost island has a statue depicting Balthazar.
    Blacktide Den (outpost)Map travel to this outpost may show a spurious warning about the party size being too large.
    Tasca's DemiseA Shiverpeak Chest (or Locked Chest in hard mode) may sometimes spawn behind the portal to Mineral Springs.
    Boreas Seabed (outpost)Although skills cannot be used in outposts, Aurora uses Favorable Winds and creates a Spirit of Favorable Winds in the outpost.
    Dragon's Throat (outpost)Map travelling from here to Vizunah Square (Local Quarter) and Vizunah Square (Foreign Quarter) while in a party will not cause a travel timer to appear.The signpost for Shadow's Passage is inside a building.
    Bogroot GrowthsSometimes the two hekets near shrine, are invincible. Re-zone to continue the dungeon.
    Rragar's MenagerieSometimes the door at first level, is closed. Re-zone to continue the dungeon.
    Bukdek Byway (Winds of Change)With Winds of Change active, Sheco does not appear in this area.
    Talmark WildernessIt has been reported that due to War in Kryta update content, both explorable area icons conflict with each other when vanquished, the World Map will sometimes display it red and others orange. Re-logging resolves this issue.
    Talmark Wilderness orange icon
    Bejunkan PierLyssa's Muse does not appear after kneeling at the statue of Lyssa and the resurrection shrine does not function. If a wipe occurs, your party will not be resurrected at the shrine.
    Jennur's HordeOn rare occasion, killing both additional Harbingers and their support groups will not progress the bonus objective ("You have defeated [0 or 1] of 2 additional Harbingers."). Players will have to restart the mission to get master's reward. (Let the Bonus Harbingers hit you before you drop the Light and kill them, the bug seems to trigger when they get killed before they have the chance to land a single blow.)
    Morostav TrailOccasionally a foe may become stuck on one of the hedges near the spawn of Konrru, Tainted Stone. Attacks by the foe or party members will be obstructed from any direction, preventing damage from any skill that requires a line of sight. This may prevent an unprepared party from vanquishing the area.
    Tomb of the Primeval KingsThe Sigil Trader is missing from International Districts.
    Arborstone (explorable area)Kneeling at the statue of Balthazar resurrection shrine at the exit into Altrumm Ruins will sometimes not cause the Champion of Balthazar to appear.If you reconnect after disconnect, any dead elemental will respawn. They will have to be killed again to count for a vanquish.
    The WildsIt is possible, that after destroying the last Entangling Roots in the Western most part of the mission, the ivy gate will vanish but still be impassable. If you ended up on the Western side of the ivy gate, you will be able to continue for a few steps but then hit an invisible wall. The mission cannot be completed either way.It is possible, that after killing both Centaur Chieftains, you will not get credit for completion of the bonus objective. The bonus will have to be repeated in this case, although the mission can still be completed as normal.
    Talus ChuteThere is a group which can patrol through the Icedome portal and get stuck there, making vanquishing impossible.
    Yatendi CanyonsKneeling at the statue of Balthazar resurrection shrine at the exit into Chantry of Secrets does not cause the Champion of Balthazar to appear. Also, while the world has Favor of the Gods, this statue of Balthazar is not animated.
    The Mirror of LyssThe three patrolling groups of Vabbian Guards around Ahjii do not attack foes and vice-versa, and area of effect damage from foes do not affect the Vabbian Guards.
    Gyala Hatchery (explorable area)The northern portal to the Gyala Hatchery's outpost is missing the white hazy barrier usually associated with Factions and Prophecies area transitions.
    Divine PathWhile in Divine Path, Mercenary Heroes will look like male Doppelgangers in the Inventory pane.Sometimes the first Phoenix, which usually spawns near Suun, may spawn behind the closed door. However, it's still possible to tame it.
    Griffon's MouthThere is an invisible wall between the exit from the cave into the forest area, north of the southern resurrection shrine and west across the wall from Whiskar Featherstorm.
    Guild hallUnlike other NPC's, the guild battle henchmen located in every guild hall cannot be interacted with by a single mouse click.
    Sanctum CayWhen pulled away from the pier in their final location, the White Mantle from the south side of the docks can run off in a straight line away from the pier and get stuck on the first obstacle they run into. These foes will not return to the pier afterwards, but will still attack any opponent that enters their range.

    Skill bugs[edit]

    Dancing DaggersThe daggers will randomly trigger -2 physical damage mods on shields even though they cause earth damage.
    Statue's BlessingWhen a player is hit by this spell from a trebuchet in the Fort Ranik mission, the player dies, and does not receive the effect stated above. Whether or not it is intended that they are hit by this spell, is unknown.
    Celestial SummoningThis skill will not queue properly.
    Blood RageThis skill can be reused immediately, rather than every 30 seconds as the skill denotes.
    Symbiotic BondUpon reconnecting from a disconnect when having this skill active it will appear as a maintained enchantment. (See the discussion page for more information and screenshots.)
    Glyph of SwiftnessProjectile speed boost only affects first projectile from Lava Arrows, Stone Daggers and Dancing Daggers when only one charge of Glyph of Swiftness remains.
    Celestial skillThe Celestial skill recharge gained from Morale Boosts will not take effect if the Celestial skill is hidden by another skill bar, such as that provided by Ursan Blessing.
    Rollerbeetle RacingSometimes after clicking Enter Battle, the battle will load then abort. You will then be sent back to the staging area and given dishonorable points for leaving early. This usually happens when you load into the game after the match has already begun.The scoreboard lists the top three players in the wrong order at Checkpoint 2 and and again at the bridges after Checkpoint 5, probably due to the game's inability to distinguish vertical distances (see: Z-axis).
    Unyielding AuraWhen used in conjunction with Healer's Covenant, if Healer's Covenant is covering Unyielding Aura, Unyielding Aura's healing bonus will be voided.If you are moving when it ends, the resurrected party member will be teleported to where you started running or where you last changed direction, not to your current position.
    Order of UndeathThis skill can not be cast if you are targeting someone under Spell Breaker, Vow of Silence etc. and triggers the spell Mistrust, acting like a target foe spell.
    Archer's SignetThis skill does not increase the amount of time a target is burning from Glyph of Immolation.
    Blades of SteelMelee attacks also contribute to the bonus damage of this skill.
    Kournan SiegeThis skill is not easily interrupted.This skill deals 14 damage per hit against 60 armor rating.
    Meditation of the ReaperOn rare occasions, Shiro will remain in his "meditation" even after taking more than 500 damage. He will remain that way for the rest of this mission, but will take damage after the initial 500.
    DestructionThis spirit deals no damage if the caster (or his corpse) is not in compass range.
    DissonanceThis spirit will interrupt even when the target is using a skill like Mantra of Resolve.
    Ice BreakerAny form of damage, such as from Sliver Armor, causes a knock down.
    Ursan RoarIf you control-click the skill icon in the effects monitor (when Ursan Roar is active on you) it will say "I am empowered by Ursan Roar" without any punctuation.
    Strike as OneTargeting yourself or an ally will sometimes cause your pet to stop moving. It will unfreeze when an opponent enters your aggro bubble or attacks it.
    Verata's GazeWhen casting Verata's Gaze on a masterless minion that was in a well, the effects of that well will persist even after the minion leaves, until the well expires.The caster actually sacrifices 0% health when using this skill. This is relevant for skills such as Dark Aura.When used on a Bone Horror immediately after it was created via Malign Intervention, the Bone Horror becomes stuck and will not move until you engage an enemy.This skill has no aftercast delay.
    Juggernaut TossThis skill appears to have a range much larger than "touch".
    "Can't Touch This!""Can't Touch This!" is applied to party members only.
    Dissonance (PvP)This spirit will interrupt even when the target is using a skill like Mantra of Resolve (PvP)[verification requested].
    Polymock Savannah HeatThis skill has a bug that will occasionally cause it to continue damaging your character after your opponent's piece dies, possibly killing your piece and resulting in a draw.
    Shroud of DistressWhen having less than 50% health, the block chance applies immediately while the health regeneration is delayed. Using any skill or swapping from a vampiric weapon to a non-vampiric one will provide you the proper health regeneration immediately.
    Draw SpiritContrary to the description, this skill causes the spirit to shadow step rather than teleport.
    Weapon of RemedyIf used when taking damage from multiple sources from only one attack, Weapon of Remedy will trigger multiple times. For example, if a foe hexed with Barbs takes physical damage, Weapon of Remedy will trigger both for the physical damage and for the Barbs damage.
    Shield of JudgmentShield of Judgment will not be listed in the damage monitor if its damage is reduced to 0.
    Well of SufferingOnly non-spirit foes experience the health degeneration.
    Glyph of ConcentrationIt is sometimes possible to be interrupted by a Destroyer of Deeds using Broad Head Arrow in Glint's Challenge or by the environment effect Cathedral Collapse in Arborstone while this glyph is still active.
    Abaddon's FavorAlthough all enemies take the 70 damage, one enemy will take much more than this. The targeted Margonite seems to gain the amount of health the severely damaged enemy takes.
    RetributionIf you somehow manage to maintain Retribution on a foe, it will not deal damage back to you or your allies.
    Destruction (PvP)This spirit deals no damage if the caster (or his corpse) is not in compass range.
    Oppressive GazeThe concise description describes the damage as an untyped armor-ignoring damage, instead of armor-ignoring shadow damage.
    Spell BreakerHeroes don't cast spells on allies under the effect of Spell Breaker.
    Celestial StanceUsing this skill while it is still active does not reset the duration.
    Item spellIf you die while holding ashes, your maximum energy will be treated as if you are still holding them. On very rare occasions, this can also happen after dropping the ashes normally. Both problems can be reset by dying again or rezoning.
    Ebon Battle Standard of CourageThe armor bonus while fighting Charr is calculated as two sources, the initial +24 armor and then the +24 armor against Charr. The armor bonus is therefore capped at +25 armor due to effect stacking (giving a 35.2% damage reduction bonus).
    Blood RenewalContrary to the full description, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Asura rankDuring certain holiday events some runs will produce Mesmer and Monk tomes instead of assassin.
    Watchful SpiritEnd effect healing is not affected by Unyielding Aura.
    ResurrectionResurrection skills can fail under a very narrow set of circumstances in which all of the following conditions are met:
    • The party has recently zoned into a new area.
    • Some of the players have not yet appeared due to lag.
    • Those present resign before the absent players appear.
    • Those players attempt to resurrect the team members who had resigned.The teleportation effect of a hero maintaining Unyielding Aura will work after the party dies due to resignation.
    "There's not enough time!!"Rather than causing skills to activate faster, this causes spells to be cast instantly and has no effect on other skill types.
    Soul ReapingSometimes it's possible to see energy gain on foes.
    STAND UP!If you gain a skill point whilst knocked out (if Kilroy kills an enemy resulting in you gaining experience), you cannot recover and will pass out.(Does not happen always.)STAND UP! briefly becomes enabled when you kill bosses, even if you are not currently "knocked out". This is due to the game mechanic that "recharges" all skills when you receive a morale boost.
    Siege DevourerIf you die while in the Siege Devourer, you might find yourself still wearing the model -- but without the stats or skills of the devourer -- upon resurrection.If a player has the camera zoomed to first person when Mount finishes its activation, the camera will change to a far one like normal, but the Siege Devourer model will not be loaded, and it will look as if the camera was stuck in first person.
    Keystone SignetSome non-English descriptions incorrectly expand the area of effect beyond adjacent foes: the French full description adds nearby foes and the German concise description adds the target.At ranks 0-1 Fast Casting, all signets activated within the duration will deal damage and interrupt foes.
    ShadowsongThe non-concise description states that the "spirit dies after 30 second" instead of using the plural "seconds" with Communing rank 0 and 1.In certain areas of Cantha, this skill's description says that this spirit lives for 169,608 seconds.
    Great Dwarf ArmorThe armor bonus while fighting Destroyers is calculated as two sources, the initial +24 armor and then the +24 armor against Destroyers. The armor bonus is therefore capped at +25 armor due to effect stacking (giving a 35.2% damage reduction bonus).
    Spirit SiphonHeroes can waste energy by using this skill outside of earshot range but within spirit range (i.e. 2.7 times the size of the aggro bubble) from the spirit or by repeatedly using it on the same spirit before it has sufficiently recharged its energy.
    BarbsCauses skills such as Xinrae's Weapon and Vengeful Weapon to trigger twice.
    MigraineSimilar to Deadly Paradox, Migraine does not affect attack skill activation times.
    Concussion ShotThis skill does not interrupt spells; the application of daze does: if the daze is not applied (i.e. if the target is enchanted by Infuse Condition and has a minion to transfer the daze to), no interrupt will occur.
    Fevered DreamsIf target foe is suffering from at least one condition when this hex is cast, Daze will be applied and spread to all foes in the area
    "Make Your Time!""Make Your Time!" counts all allies, not just party members.
    Animal companionSometimes when a pet evolves, its name will not update until it is reset with the /petname (or /namepet) command.
    Lightning Bolt"Master of My Domain" considers each packet a separate skill.
    VolleyVolley also removes Glyphs. Hero AI can use Volley right after a glyph, which removes its effect.
    SpiritHeroes in Guard Mode will target non-attacking spirits; both heroes and henchmen will go out of their way to attack spirits.
    Spirit Light WeaponContrary to the concise description, this skill's conditional effect causes health gain and not healing.
    Deadly ParadoxSimilar to Migraine, this skill does not decrease the activation time of dagger attack skills. Recharge time of dagger attack skills are affected as the skill describes.
    Radiant ScytheDespite the phrasing of the full description, the energy gain occurs even if the attack fails to hit (as correctly noted in the concise description).
    Rending TouchThe full description fails to mention that this spell has a touch range.
    Signet of Mystic SpeedThe counter does not reset if the signet is recast before the original duration ends.
    Greater ConflagrationDoes not properly convert the physical damage of certain skills (notably: Ebon Vanguard Sniper Support and Veil of Thorns). As a result, the skill chain will not trigger the conditional effects of other skills that depend on fire damage (in particular, for Intensity).
    Asuran ScanFoes affected by this skill cannot miss.While target foe is hexed, you cannot miss other foes.
    Test of FaithHeroes do not use this skill.
    "None Shall Pass!"Because the recharge reduction of "None Shall Pass!" is applied after percentile reductions such as Quickening Zephyr, the recharge can be reduced below 0. The skill will display as 'recharging' indefinitely but actually can be used again after 10 minutes and 55 seconds, which indicates that Guild Wars uses an unsigned 16 bit integer to store the recharge time in hundredths of a second (216−1 cs = 65,535 cs = 10min 55.35s).
    Blood RitualThe concise description omits that this is a touch-range skill.

    Infuse ConditionThis skill does transfer Bleeding, Disease, and Poison to minions, despite them being non-fleshy.
    Eternal AuraThis enchantment can be activated while under the effects of Frozen Soil.
    Divine InterventionThis skill does not prevent damage; rather, it heals the enchanted target to the stated amount when they would die.
    Hidden CaltropsCrippling modifiers on weapons do not extend the duration of cripple caused by the end effect.
    Reap ImpuritiesThe holy damage is dealt to other foes adjacent to yourself, not adjacent to the target.
    "I Am Unstoppable!"The armor bonus from this skill takes effect after the bonus armor cap of +25.Cracked Armor and armor penetration have no effect on the armor bonus of this skill.
    Ether PhantomEther Phantom stacks with itself causing multiple energy loss when removed prematurely
    Shadow FormThe -5 damage reduction is active for the expected duration of each enchantment, not its actual duration. Refreshing an Assassin enchantment before it ends reduces the received damage by an additional -5. There seems to be a limit to the amount of times a single enchantment can be renewed before damage reduction stops increasing for that enchantment.
    Elemental ResistanceSimilar to Cracked Armor, this skill will not lower your armor rating below 60 or your "core" armor rating, if your "core" armor rating is lower than 60.If you use a skill or combination of skills and effects that, after subtraction of the penalty from Elemental Resistance, still grants +26 or more armor rating against physical damage, Elemental Resistance's armor penalty does not function. See also armor calculation.
    Physical ResistanceSimilar to Cracked Armor, this skill will not lower your armor rating below 60 or your "core" armor rating, if your "core" armor rating is lower than 60.If you use a skill or combination of skills and effects that, after subtraction of the penalty from Physical Resistance, still grants +26 or more armor rating against elemental damage, Physical Resistance's armor penalty does not function.

See also armor calculation.

    Ghostmirror LightContrary to the concise description, this skill's conditional effect causes healing and not health gain.
    Boon of CreationContrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Gelatinous AbsorptionThe long description omits the fact that incoming damage is converted to healing.The concise description displays the wrong duration; the correct length is 15 seconds, as noted in the long description.
    Farmer's ScytheThe recharge effect will occur if you attack more than one foe; thus, this skill will recharge even if you miss or are blocked.
    Gaze of FuryIf multiple spirits occupy exactly the same spot, using Gaze of Fury on one of them may destroy one of the others instead.
    Eremite's AttackThe full description is incorrect: a Dervish enchantment is removed even if this attack fails to hit.
    Melandru's AssaultThe skill deals 5...20 damage to target foe (in a separate packet) and 5...20 damage to other nearby foes, despite what the skill description might suggest. The pet does not attack nearby foes when this skill is used.
    "Finish Him!"This skill ignores the effects of skills that provide health bonuses, such as Endure Pain, when calculating 50% of the health; the target's health needs to be 50% of what it would be without the bonus.
    WindsWinds does not appear on the effects monitor.
    Smite ConditionThe effect area is actually nearby foes.
    "By Ural's Hammer!"This skill will resurrect in the presence of Frozen Soil or Curse of Dhuum.The duration of this shout is not extended by Vocal Was Sogolon.
    Invigorating MistEven though the skill description says "All adjacent creatures", sometimes the heroes in your party will not receive the benefit.
    Unstable PulseThe concise description fails to mention that this skill ends when the golem takes elemental damage.The damage taken when this skill ends only seems to be applied when the golem dies. Since the golem may use this skill several times during the fight, this can result in a large damage spike.
    Sand ShardsRe-application does not reset the number of hits remaining until the original application would have ended. It appears to count any hits against both applications, and the enchantment will end if the number of hits remaining from the original application reaches 0.
    Life TransferThe concise description fails to mention that the regeneration is gained for each hexed foe.
    Way of PerfectionContrary to the concise description, this skill's conditional effect causes health gain and not healing.
    Predatory BondContrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Predatory Bond (PvP)Contrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Healing SpringAlthough allied spirits will display this skill's animation effect, they will not be healed (since spirits are never affected by healing).
    Air of DisenchantmentAlthough the description says "150...270...300% faster", the actual behavior is "at 150...270...300% the normal rate", which is only 50...170...200% faster.
    Mandragor's ChargeThe full description fails to mention that this is a half range spell.
    Obsidian FleshThe armor bonus from this skill only applies to physical damage.
    Deny HexesThe description is misleading: this skill removes a hex for each recharging Divine Favor skill, including itself. However, if Deny Hexes recharges instantly (e.g. using Glyph of Renewal), it will not be included as a recharging skill thus it is possible that no hex will be removed.
    Dulled WeaponThis hex only reduces damage from attacks.
    Balthazar's PendulumDoesn't work against Psychic Instability or Tremor.
    Ursan BlessingIf you obtain a new skill (as a quest reward) you may equip it in any of the free slots and use it. After turning back to human form, you keep the skill but cannot use it until you swap it with another skill.
    Anguished Was LingwahNo hexes are recharged if the user drops the ashes upon death.
    Needling ShotBoth descriptions are incorrect in that only bow attack skills are disabled.
    Snow FlurryThe hex is not applied to the target. It is applied to all foes within range along with each damage pulse.The effect lasts for 10 seconds, not 5.The cripple lasts for 5 seconds, not 2.
    Gelatinous Corpse ConsumptionThe concise description omits that this is a touch-range skill.
    Burning BreathThough the skill description lists it to have a 2 second activation time, Burning Breath activation actually lasts 3 seconds.
    Volfen PounceHas an activation time even though it is a stance.
    Signet of CreationHeroes will use this skill, even when their summoned creatures are not in earshot.
    Grenth's AuraIf a ranged weapon is swapped for a scythe after the attack was made and before the projectile hit, Grenth's Aura will count this projectile hit as a scythe hit.
    Vampiric SpiritSimilar to other enchantments that target a foe, foes affected by Well of the Profane cannot be targeted by this enchantment.
    Turret ArrowThe description doesn't indicate the cripple duration.
    Master of MagicWhile under the effects of Master of Magic, being weakened with attribute points in elemental ranks will cause elemental ranks to lower by 1. Elemental attributes without attribute points in will not lower by 1.
    Reform CarvingsIf they are hit with a Knock Down immediately after using this skill, then they will often lock into tablet form.
    Purify SoulThis skill's health regeneration and duration is greater than stated in the description.[verification requested]
    "Tango Down!"The duration is also granted for corpses of allies.
    Land MineDespite the description, the damage dealt is physical and not armor-ignoring.The descriptions omit that the trap lasts for 60 seconds.
    MountIf you move away while the Siege Devourer is still casting Mount, you will not get mounted even though the skill does not fail.
    Hex Eater SignetThis skill's "touched ally" part doesn't work, and AoE effect is centered around the caster, not the actual target. Also, if there are more hexed targets in range than the signet can handle, they will be picked from first to last in the party window.Whether it affects allies or just party members is being discussed and researched at this skill's talk page, although because of it working from top party member to bottom, it won't probably work on allies.
    Weapon of ShadowThe descriptions do not mention that this weapon spell ends after the affected target ally causes blindness the allotted number of times.
    DisplacementThe duration bar beneath the effects monitor skill icon does not shrink over time like other effects with durations.
    VampirismThe Spirit of Vampirism's attack skill is a monster skill independent of the Sunspear rank. Unlike the progression of other Sunspear skills after the May 17, 2012 update, Vampirism's life stealing continues to follow the progression prior to that update (i.e. maximum effectiveness is reached at Sunspear rank 10 instead of 5) even though the descriptions display 20 life stealing from rank 5 to 9.
    OvercastWhile viewing a skill that costs overcast from a Priest of Balthazar or skill trainer, the popup that appears when you position your cursor over the overcast icon will display "...".
    Aura of DisplacementSimilar to other enchantments that target a foe, foes affected by Well of the Profane cannot be targeted by this enchantment.
    Magnetic SurgeSimilar to other enchantments that target a foe, foes affected by Well of the Profane cannot be targeted by this enchantment.When Overcast, Magnetic Surge is applied to party members only.
    Ice SpearSimilar to other enchantments that target a foe, foes affected by Well of the Profane cannot be targeted by this enchantment.
    Chilling WindsBoth descriptions fail to mention that the target and all adjacent foes also become hexed with Chilling Winds in addition to being struck with cold damage.
    Ward of StabilitySimilar to Ward of Weakness, this ward spell's recharge time cannot be decreased. For example, activating this ward spell while under the effects of Glyph of Renewal or Glyph of Swiftness will consume the glyph, but the recharge time will not be decreased. However, the recharge time can be increased, e.g., by Glyph of Sacrifice.
    Ward of WeaknessSimilar to Ward of Stability, this ward spell's recharge time cannot be decreased. E.g. activating this ward spell while under the effects of Glyph of Renewal or Glyph of Swiftness will consume the glyph, but the recharge time will not be decreased. However, the recharge time can be increased, e.g. by Glyph of Sacrifice.
    Ward Against HarmThis skill does not actually become disabled, as it can be instantly recharged by Glyph of Renewal, and the recharge reduced by Glyph of Swiftness.
    Frozen SoilEternal Aura can be activated while under the effects of Frozen Soil.
    Lava FontHero AI will use this spell without considering whether there are foes adjacent to them.
    Rollerbeetle DashIf you encounter any change of speed after activating Rollerbeetle Dash — even by Ram or Water ending — you risk gaining no benefit for the remainder of the duration.
    Shattering AssaultThis skill replaces your dagger's attack damage with the stated damage, which is non-armor-ignoring damage (unlike other attack skills such as Golden Phoenix Strike, Distracting Shot, and Needling Shot). This damage is affected by Dagger Mastery, critical hits, armor penetration, inscription and inscription-equivalent weapon damage bonuses and the target's armor rating, but does not benefit from the customization damage bonus.
    IntensityWhen sorting skills by campaign, this is listed under Core although it's a Nightfall skill.
    Illusion of WeaknessDespite the skill descriptions, this skill heals rather than provide health gain.
    Foul FeastContrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Crystal ShieldThe non-concise description does not mention that the ettin can cast spells but not attack.
    Leader's ComfortContrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Desert Wurm (disguise)Sometimes heroes and henchmen will leave their Junundu in the Sulfurous Haze, killing themselves and preventing their resurrection through Junundu Wail.Heroes using a form might not take on the Junundu appearance (the Junundu skill bar will still take place).Although none of the Junundu's skills are spells, using Junundu Feast without an available corpse gives the message "Invalid spell target."
    IciclesAlthough the skill descriptions states that this spell deals cold damage, it inflicts armor-ignoring damage.
    Chains of EnslavementOccasionally a Stone Summit Dwarf will not be allied to you with this effect active. Killing such targets will not affect the allied status of other Stone Summit.
    Junundu BiteContrary to the descriptions, this skill causes health gain and not healing.
    Healing HandsContrary to the descriptions, this skill causes health gain and not healing.
    Dust TrapThe damage dealt is armor-ignoring earth damage.
    Vampirism (attack)The descriptions do not mention that this attack also heals the creator.
    Ebon Vanguard Assassin SupportVery rarely, the assassin may survive indefinitely. This can occur if resurrected by an enemy-created Restoration spirit, as by Reborn Irukandji.
    RecoveryThe French translation of Spirit of Recovery is the same as Spirit of Recuperation but with a lower case "r", which can be misleading.
    Glimmering MarkThe concise description fails to precise the duration of the Blind condition
    Stoneflesh AuraThis enchantment does not actually make you immune to critical hits, but prevents extra damage from them. As such, effects that may result from them, such as knock down, or the re-applying effect of Critical Agility and Critical Defenses will still apply. However, the damage-nullified critical hit will not trigger the energy gain of Critical Strikes.
    Blood of the MasterThe concise description is wrong regarding only healing your own minions.
    Zealot's FireThe concise description is wrong : the energy loss is applied every time the user uses a skill that targets an ally, regardless of any damage dealt.
    Well of WearinessUnlike other wells, Well of Weariness effects do stack.
    Taste of PainContrary to the concise description, this skill causes health gain and not healing.
    Ether RenewalContrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Ether Renewal (PvP)Contrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Healing BurstContrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing in earshot and not health gain.

    Mantra of Signets (PvP)Contrary to the descriptions, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Finale of RestorationContrary to the concise description, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Finale of Restoration (PvP)Contrary to the concise description, this skill causes healing and not health gain.
    Faithful InterventionContrary to the concise description, this skill causes healing and not health gain. It also fails to mention that the healing is an end effect.
    Stone StrikerThis skill does not convert damage but instead forces the damage type of all dealt damage to be earth damage. For example when applying winter on top of stone striker, physical damage is not converted into earth damage, since winter has no effect on it - it still considers the damage to be of physical type. This is irrespective of which damage converting skill is used first.
    Triple ShotThe base attack damage from this skill is about 12-15% lower than expected from the description.
    Whirling DefenseThe non-concise description is wrong, this skill will deal damage even if the projectile is blocked from another blocking source.
    Iron MistThe effects of this skill apply to all spells, regardless of if they target a foe or are Air Magic.
    Star BurstIn the Polish translation, description was not updated when skill functionality changed. It still says: You lose 5 Energy if more than one foe is struck.
    Simple ThieveryWhen Simple Thievery interrupts a monster skill, disabling effect does not work.
    Pious HasteIf your Mysticism is at 0, the skill will still remove an enchantment but only give 25% move speed instead of 50%.

    Item bugs[edit]

    Pronged FanThis focus has clipping issues with most models.
    Storm BowAfter 5 hours logged on your character, the electric animation of the Storm Bow will freeze and no longer animate. Simply restart Guild Wars if this happens or wait 14 hours until the animation returns.Has a clipping issue with male Ranger Ancient armor.
    Daedal ShieldThis shield has bad clipping issues on female and male monk characters, as the shield sinks into their left shoulders.
    Chaos AxeApplying brown or gray dye causes a graphical glitch in the item transparency.
    Razorclaw ScytheRazorclaw Scythes have slight clipping issues with the male dervish model.
    Dragon MaskWhile wearing Eye of the North non-set gloves players have noticed a black line above the back left side of the helm. See the talk page.
    Insectoid ScytheThis scythe is held at a peculiar angle by the male dervish model, with the blade of the scythe tilted at an angle to face towards the wielder's back rather than slightly towards their front.
    Turai's SwordThe attack animation of the sword, the white swirl, is broken. When you swing the blade horizontal, the wind animation has a perpendicular vertical motion when your character equips the sword. It only works correctly with the "Turai Ossa" model.
    Image of the bug
    Lord Onrah's SwordWhen wielded by a character, the sword is rendered black. When Dread Lord Onrah is seen wielding this sword, it is rendered similar to the inventory icon.
    Tattered FanThis item has clipping issues on female characters of all professions.
    Forgotten FanThis item has serious clipping issues on female monks, female necromancers and female mesmers.
    Frozen FanThis item has clipping issues on female caster-classes.
    Holy StaffSome enemies wielding this staff will have the glimmer of the staff slightly higher than normal, making a little glow appear above it.
    Steelhead ScytheThis scythe seems to have slight clipping issues with the male dervish model.
    Draconic ScytheBoth male and female dervishes hold this scythe angled incorrectly.
    Tapestry ShredThere is a viral bug with this quest: the shred cannot ever be obtained by a character who has exited Ascalon with any character who (a) has received the shred or (b) has been the member of such a group. There are three work-arounds: (1) Do not join a party with any other character until yours has the shred; (2) create a new pre-Searing character to obtain a shred; (3) buy the shred from another player.
    Zombie Face PaintThe mask appears completely gray on the character selection screen.
    Frontier Gate FugitivesFootman Tate will continue to spawn in the Eastern Frontier even after you lead him back to the Frontier Gate.
    Ebonhand AegisThis shield has clipping issues with several classes: male Mesmers, male Monk Obsidian armor, as well as female Elementalist Elite Iceforged armor. Also it has clipping issues with Dragon Gauntlets.
    Aureate LampThe lamp often has clipping issues with male Monk armor.
    Red Iris FlowerFour of the above zones sometimes spawn irises in unreachable locations:
    • Lakeside County: the iris near the stage sometimes spawns behind the portal to The Northlands;
    • Lakeside County: more rarely, the Ashford Village iris might spawn inside a rock;
    • Green Hills: an iris infrequently spawns inside a tree or behind The Barradin Estate portal;
    • Wizard's Folly: rarely an iris behind Catacombs portal.
    Eternal BladeIn the attack animation of the sword, the white swirl is broken. When you swing the blade horizontal, the wind animation has a perpendicular vertical motion when your character equips the sword.
    BroadswordThe blade does not connect to the hilt.
    Plagueborn FocusThe spikes on the end of the focus sometimes "pierce" through the left leg of the character on certain character types.
    Oswalt's EpitaphWhen acquiring this quest, occasionally it will immediately update to indicate that you have completed the second objective ("Inscribe Elsa's words on the headstone"), but not the first objective.
    Imperial Dragon MaskHas a slight clipping issue with Ancient Armor for the Assassin.Has a rather drastic clipping issue with the coat of Norn Armor for the male Mesmer.When removing the dyes from the mask in the Dye Preview window, the mask will stay the color you removed from the Dye Preview window last rather than reverting to its original appearance.In all others languages, the mask is always named its English translation.
    Hero's HandbookEntry #11 (Oola's Laboratory) is misleading: the handbook requires you to complete the quest the Elusive Golemancer, not the dungeon with the similar name (Oola's Lab); these are completely different tasks.During Northern Support weekly bonus, upon handing in the books the text in the chat window will claim you have gained half the reputation points of what you would have gotten according to the above table. In reality you are actually granted the proper amount of reputation.
    DyeIf you use only one dye it will completely overwrite the item's base color. However, with some armors, if you use multiple dyes then the item's base color may also be included in the mix.Some items' inventory icons dye differently than their models, so the equipped item will look different than the icon; either one may look dyed even though its counterpart doesn't.Some items accept dyes but have no colorable areas; any dye used on them will be wasted. For example, most bonus items behave like this.
    Jester's CapWhen removing the dyes from the mask in the Dye Preview window, the mask will stay the color you removed from the Dye Preview window last rather than reverting to its original appearance.
    Tormented ScytheIf you are logged on for more than 6 hours, the animation will freeze; restarting Guild Wars fixes it.
    Skeleton Face PaintHas clipping issues with certain heads (bald male Warrior). The mask may also appear off-center on some character faces resulting in a distorted appearance.The mask appears completely gray on the character selection screen.
    CostumeIn the character selection screen, costumes will not show unless the character has been played in that session, and you are returning to the character select screen, even when "Always Show" is turned on.Some characters may have "see through" parts during some animations.If both the costume and cape are set to "Always Show", they will both appear in the Inventory window, causing an evident clipping issue; however, this will never be visible to other players.
    Skill tomeSkill tomes usually drop singly. If multiple player characters are in the party, on extremely rare occasions, two (or more) will drop from a Locked Chest. This almost always results in one of the other player characters being unable to get a drop from that particular chest.
    Tormented FocusThis focus clips through the leg of almost every armor because of the way a character holds it.
    Woe SpreaderUnlike other unique items, this sells for 34 gold at the merchant rather than 35 gold.

    FirebrandThe staff seems to float below the player's hand.
    Tormented ShieldAfter extended periods of time, the animation of the Tormented Shield will freeze and not animate. Simply restart Guild Wars if this happens.This shield has a slight clipping issue when held by a Warrior wearing Monument Armor, Primeval Armor or Dragon Gauntlets.
    Divine HaloIf dropped on the ground, a white box will be presentUnlike most hats, if you equip the Divine Halo while in a disguise or form, the Halo will appear over the head of the disguise or form. The Halo's visual appearance will disappear when a form ends on you. To get it back, re-equip the Halo.If you are zoomed in close enough that you are in first person view but not zoomed in all the way, you will be able to see the Halo when running forwards.
    Votive CandleIf the candles are separated into multiple stacks, Thackeray offers to accept, but is unable to give a Paper Wrapped Parcel. Afterward, he will trade the candles for Sacks of Random Junk, as if he had given the parcel.

    Experimental Elixir (item)A stack of two or more Experimental Elixirs appears singular in its description, e.g. "2 Experimental Elixir".
    Forgotten ShieldThe +10 armor vs. Elemental damage is considered a skill armor bonus by game mechanics. It will not stack past +25 armor in combination with armor boosting skills (e.g. the Strength variant's +10 armor vs. Earth damage in combination with Ward Against Elements will only grant +25 armor vs Earth damage, not +34). This bug does not affect the base armor rating of the shields.
    Wyvern BladeThe attack animation of this sword is broken. When you swing the sword, the wind effect appears in the wrong place.
    Oppressor's HammerWhen equipped on any hero of non-Human height, the three enlightened dots are not in the correct places.

    Drake KabobDrake Kabob only provides an armor bonus versus physical damage, not versus all armor-respecting damage, as the description implies.

    Voltaic SpearThe Spear has clipping issues with female Mesmers, Monks and Necromancers: the spear appears to be held by the wrist rather than in the hand.
    Xun Rao's QuillThe dagger is positioned incorrectly in the inventory screen; it floats above the forearm, instead of being held in the hand.
    Summoning stoneIn extremely rare circumstances, drops can be assigned to a summoned creature and cannot be picked up by anyone. However, once the item loses its assignment, anyone will be able to grab it.

    Warrior Elite Dragon armorThe neck appears twisted for the female model

    Ranger Vabbian armorThe material holding the front-most dagger on the pants does not dye properly, staying its original color while the material holding the other daggers changes to the color you dyed the pants.A large section of the skirt portion of the leg armor will clip through the left leg while walking.

    Other bugs[edit]

    Bow attackEven with a clear line of sight, all bow attack skills have a chance of not activating when standing on a bridge or stairway and on some inclines or overpasses
    Spear attackEven with a clear line of sight, all spear attacks have a chance of being obstructed when standing on a bridge or stairway and on some inclines or overpasses.
    "Victory or Death!"The effect is mislabeled. Rather than increasing the damage players inflict, it actually increases the damage taken. This can be seen by Environment Effects such as Acid Trap and Spiked Coral dealing increased amounts of damage.
    Edge of Reason"Halves skill recharge" and Glyph of Renewal do not work at all while under this effect.
    Dragon Festival 2007Wrathful Storms in the Domain of Fear use the re-enactment Scythe of Chaos / Wrathful Storm model rather than the authentic Scythe of Chaos / Wrathful Storm model.If a district loses the finale minigame, the Grasps of Insanity will not leave the district at the end of the finale, allowing grasps from multiple finales to accumulate in that district.
    Norn Hunting PartyIf your party is granted a Hunting Party rank increase while you are dead, your own rank is reduced back to 1.
    Asuran BodyguardWhen you get the Hunt Rank Up bonus while you are dead, you will not get the next rank and the actual rank is removed.
    Vanguard PatrolIf your party is granted a Vanguard Patrol rank increase while you are dead, your own rank is reduced back to 1.
    Acid TrapThe damage can be reduced with Mantra of Earth; however, using Winter combined with Mantra of Frost does not change the amount of damage taken.
    DungeonIf the party wipes after the three-minute timer starts, the timer will disappear from the screen. However, the party will be teleported on schedule.
    BombardmentThe area near the East, where the cannon shrine is, does not have correct auto movement. Due to this, you run into the wall and stop if you try to run to it by hitting space.
    The Elixir of StrengthSometimes the effect isn't removed. It often becomes stuck on pets, as a result of the antidote only being applied to the players. As such, they will not be able to attack until the effect wears off. Its full duration is yet to be determined as it is usually removed by the antidote given at the end of the quest. This effect is removed upon death.
    Forgotten ShrinesWhen the game begins, the game rules are listed twice
    Ebon Vanguard AssassinOccasionally, there is a delay between when it spawns and when it starts attack its target.If the whole party dies and resurrects out of radar range of the Assassin, it won't shadowstep away.
    Isle of SolitudeSometimes when you warp to the Guild Hall, you spawn inside the Xunlai Chest.
    Bug Image
    Locked ChestLocked Chests can drop 2 or 3 elite skill tomes at once, but other party members might then lose their turn in opening that particular chest.
    Into the NorthThe fire that Jora sits next to does not render.
    The Asura PlanDuplicates of Mamp and Lork appear in a long shot. Gadd and Oola appear here as well.
    Bloodstone Fen (cinematics)In the second cinematic, the White Mantle Savant has the White Mantle Abbot skin.
    Isle of JadeThe Mini-map places the flag stand in the incorrect place.
    CinematicOccasionally, a female character will use a male's voice (and vice versa).On a computer with a slow connection it is possible to connect during the cinematic and be able to walk around while the other party members are still viewing it.After minimizing and restoring the game window, occasionally all the dialogue and voices will play simultaneously.If an opening cinematic is skipped before someone loads it, they can be separated from their group and will start the mission separately.
    TemplateIt appears that you can't copy/paste the template string into your hero's bar.
    TorchSometimes you will pick up the torch backwards.
    ChestNPCs can get stuck on chests (as they can with any interactive object).On very rare occasions, one player will get two drops from a chest while another in the party will get none.
    MinionMinions set free before a cinematic will often run free, attacking and possibly killing defenseless ally NPCs and PCs. If controlled they will attack hostile targets who are part of the cinematic or they can block the camera views.
    ShieldPvP Strength Shields offer +9 AR to characters that do not meet the requirements.
    Imperial Sanctum (cinematics)As with the cinematic in Nahpui Quarter, Suun appears in the cinematic with a Canthan Peasant appearance.
    DeathOccasionally when watching another party member while dead, the camera will lock facing east. The player can right click and move the camera, but it will return to facing east when the button is released.Sometimes if resurrected quickly, the tinted gray and the rotating view will remain on the screen, making the viewing a bit more difficult. Either adding more delay to the resurrection or zoning will remove them, in these situations.
    Golden GatesPlayers can shoot projectiles through the doors only when they are closed, and not when they are open.
    Eye of Janthir FormUsing Sparklers, Champagne Poppers, Squash Serum or Bottle Rockets will show no animation if used while in this form, but Disco Ball will.
    Line of sightYou can appear to have a visible line of sight and fail to hit a target. This is common when the target or the attacker is on a bridge. To work around it, move or wait for the target to move.You can hit a target even without a visible LoS, because the game mechanics ignore the vertical-axis (sometimes referred to as the Z-axis). For example, a melee attacker standing directly below an enemy behaves as if next to that foe.
    Alliance BattlesIf the both teams reach 500 points at the same time, the win defaults to the Kurzicks regardless of the final score, because Kurzick points are distributed first. For example, if the score is 499 each and the Kurzicks own 1 flag, but the Luxons own 6, when shrine points are awarded, the Kurzicks will reach 500 first (and win), even though the ending totals will be Kurzick: 500, Luxon: 505.If your team loses and you go to another town before you are automatically sent out, but the town is full, you will stay in the area until you leave yourself.If you are holding a resurrection orb and you die due to losing, you will be resurrected and can continue the game until you zone out.
    Map travelWhen you rapidly click on an outpost, you'll either receive an error 007 code or a message which informs you that your network login has expired.When you try to enter an outpost while you already on the way to said outpost, a message pops up stating that your group already waits to enter the mission.
    SalvageIf you manage to salvage an item while the previous salvage hasn't appeared yet, the game produces a disconnect and error code 007. This will continue to occur every time that kit is used unless that kit is moved to another inventory slot, dropped and picked up off the ground, sold, or destroyed.
    Party Search panelAfter approximately eight and a half hours, your entry in the Players tab will be deleted.
    PvP reward4 Duplicate of starter PvP armor5 Duplicate of another Basic rewardSome accounts are able to access weapons from higher tiers without completing the 50-unlocks prerequisites.
    Dwayna CostumeWhen viewing a character on the character selection screen, the diadem will not appear and the regalia will be a different color to how it appears in-game
    Grenth CostumeSome hair styles clip through the costume's collar.When walking, the boots will display clipping through the cape.Grenth's Visage has some clipping issues with high-collared armor, for example Female Necromancer Norn and Elite Sunspear armor.The sides of the cape disappear when the point of view is zoomed out.When viewing a character on the character selection screen, the diadem will not appear and the regalia will be a different color to how it appears in-game
    VanquisherThe hard mode version of the World Map will mark all explorable areas in Tyria as if each is available for vanquishing, even if your character has only started either Prophecies or Eye of the North. The bug also applies to missions and dungeons, but only shows up if your account is linked to both campaigns.
    Brawler's PitOn this map, there are certain locations on the bridges in which you will block every attack against you. This bug is probably caused by a clipping issue.
    Ancient CofferIf you have Master of Whispers in your party, the Ancient Coffer will appear in Vehjin Mines whether or not the Coffer of Joko quest is active.
    The Underworld (arena)Due to clipping errors on the bridges on this map, it is possible to move to a position along the wall of a bridge where one cannot be hit by attacks. Players at this location may still be hit if attacked by another player below the bridge.
    Do Not TouchWhenever a Do Not Touch is looted, there is a chance that the Elementals protecting the treasure won't spawn at all.
    Executioner Vekil
    CommanderIn some accounts the bar is still visible even when below rank 1.
    Random ArenasLeaving after winning a match when the countdown timer is between 3 and 0 seconds will usually result in the team not receiving a new replacement for the next round.
    Zaishen Challenge QuestA character will lose the opportunity to take a quest the next time it appears in the rotation if after accepting the quest reward and before the next time that quest appears in the rotation that character does not change districts, zone. This bug does not affect Zaishen Combat quests.Unlike other quests:
    • Zaishen Challenge Quests with all objectives completed are not indicated with a "(Completed)" beside the quest name in the Quest Log.
    • The chat window does not display the usual "You receive <number> gold." message after accepting the reward for a Zaishen Challenge Quest.Trying to auto-run to one of the three signposts may cause you to run between them until you change direction. There's a small bit of space marked as pathable, but which is too small to actually move through.
    Illusionary Weaponry TeamThey use Illusionary Weaponry instead of Illusionary Weaponry (PvP).
    Dragon Festival/FinaleGrasps of Insanity may become trapped on NPCs, preventing further movement.
    Dragon Festival 2010Some players reported receiving the mask only if they had exactly 250 Victory Tokens in their inventory.During some finales, the Grasps of Insanity did not show up in all districts.
    The bear huntersSome players report that one of the two nearby bears vanishes under rare circumstances. This happens sometime between slaying the first and returning after restarting the timer for the second and there appears to be no way to get it to reappear. Some believe the bug only occurs if the player's inventory is full.
    Resurrection ShrineSome shrines do not show the animation no matter the distance from them your party gets. See each map area's notes.
    Obelisk LightningThis spell actually inflicts 42 lightning damage.
    Lunatic Court FineryIf you equip the Lunatic Court Helm while in a disguise or form, the fire effect is shown around the head of the disguise/form.If there are too many people in a town, such as on a special event, then the fire from the Lunatic Court Helm will stop animating for everyone in the beginning districts of that town.If you wear the Headless Lunatic Court Finery while wearing the helm, the helm will disappear while the flames remain visible.
    Raiment of the LichWhen wearing Cowl of the Lich, the top of character's head can sometimes be seen poking through on the character selection screen and inventory screen.
    White Mantle DisguiseWhen wearing this costume, the robes can appear black on the inventory character icon.
    MiniatureOn rare occasions, you will be able to see a miniature's level or party size next to its name. The miniature can also be selectable, like a creature; its name will appear as "Collectors Edition <Miniature name> Doll", "Birthday <Miniature name> Doll", or (for newer miniatures) "Miniature <Miniature name>".
    Movement controlsTurning around using the default X method cancels any skill being activated; however, turning around by using A or D does nothing.Constantly turning around by using A or D right before skill activation causes the character to perform this movement infinitely until keypad movement is used again, even after death.
    Hearts of the NorthSome dialogues have not been translated into other languages; some that involve Gwen are repeated.
    User interfaceWhile your interface is hidden, you cannot use skills that target foes or other allies. Skills that would target an ally target yourself, if able.
    ProtectorThe descriptions for these titles omits the fact that the objectives must be completed in Normal Mode.
    DisguiseThe Divine Halo, along with the effects from Lunatic Court Helm and Demonic Horns, can be seen while in a disguise.
    FormThe Divine Halo, along with the effects from Lunatic Court Helm and Demonic Horns, can be seen while in a form.
    Charmable animalOn rare occasions, a charmable animal displays the name of a foe within the same zone or a foe might show the pet's name and level. This does not affect gameplay.
    Character selection screenCharacters wearing a costume will sometimes be displayed without one, even when "Always Show" is turned on.
    Going CommandoContrary to the description, attributes are unaffected.
    DropOn very rare occasions, one character will get two drops from a chest while another in the party will get none.
    "I Will Avenge You" WarriorsIn the D'Alessio Arena, if you stand against the back side of the frontmost pillar on the right, this group will not engage you if you have yet to engage them. They will clump together and do nothing, which makes them really easy to take out using an AoE damage spike. For this to work you must enter alone.
    Friends ListThe mutual Friends list does not always update correctly for accounts with a status of Do not disturb; this can be fixed by toggling the status to Online and back.Under certain circumstances, the mutual Friends list does not show any location for a mutual friend (as if the friends status was not reciprocal).
    Margrid the Sly FormSometimes when you use a tonic, the emote "no" will be maintained on your character.
    Cracked ArmorCracked armor will reduce armor ratings as low as that of the target's Core armor, if that value is below 60.Cracked armor has no effect if you use a skill or combination of skills or effects that boosts your armor by +46 or more. See also armor calculation.
    Drake SkinThis effect only provides an armor bonus versus physical damage, not versus all armor-respecting damage, as the description implies.
    Trade WindowIf you offer at least one item from the Equipment Pack while the other character offers you in exchange at least one item which cannot be placed in the Equipment Pack, the trade will fail even if you have enough free slots in other inventory bags.
    Game updates:May 2011
    Guide to farming Red Iris FlowersIrises can spawn outside of reach, e.g. the iris near the stage can appear just past the wall (as if in the Northlands).
    Degeneration TeamThis NPC does not use the PvP versions of skills.
    Codex ArenaIf an elite skill of another profession than your Primary is added to your skill bar in combat (from skills like Arcane Mimicry or Arcane Thievery), it will be locked due to Codex rules. However, the skill is still useable the first second.Kills during Random Arena bonus weeks award double Balthazar faction and XP in Codex Arena.
    Winds of ChangeEven if your party includes characters who have yet to start Winds of Change, the explorable areas do not return to their pre-WoC status. This has been confirmed by Zack Nickerson.
    Weapon swapSometimes after a swap, weapons do not return to their originally placed inventory slot. This happens frequently when interchanging two-handed sets with sets that include single-handed and/or off-hand weapon. (Developers have said that this is an unintended consequence of other design choices.) You can prevent this from happening with the following one-time work-around:
    1. Enable all the relevant weapon sets.
    2. Place each weapon in its desired slot (e.g. in an Equipment Pack).
    3. Ensure that each set includes an off-hand weapon (even if it uses a two-handed weapon); ideally, choose an off-hand from one of the other sets.
    4. Cycle through the enabled sets, e.g. F1→F2→F3→F4. If an item pops into the wrong slot, stop and move it back.
    5. Repeat until items return to their desired slot.
    PopupIf you hold down "Targeting: Show Enemies" (default: CTRL) while moving, the names of creatures poised to pop up will flash on the screen briefly as they enter selection range.Popups can still be attacked by spirits and minions even when they're underground.
    Ravenheart WitchwearWhile a character is wearing this costume, its appearance in the character selection screen may or may not reflect this.
    Formal AttireThe male version of this costume is heavily affected by the "white snow" displaying issue in the form of blinking white dots appearing around outfit's edges if the Anti-Aliasing option is enabled within the game's graphical settings. Female version is also under the similar flaw's impact, yet to a slighter degree.Female version has clipping issues; while running and during most emotes that use the legs (/dance, etc.).
    QuestIf your character does not have an inventory slot for a quest reward item, the NPC will not give the reward and inform you that an empty inventory slot is required. However, the NPC will not take into consideration if your character cannot hold any more gold; i.e. if a quest awards 1Platinum and your character already has 99Platinum 1Gold in inventory, the NPC will give your character the quest's other rewards, but will award 0Gold even though your inventory can receive 999Gold and the chat window displays "You receive 1,000 gold." This is inconsistent with merchants and traders, since they will not complete a transaction if a character cannot receive the full amount of gold when selling an item or a stack of an item.
    Aspect of FailureCharacters can use flash enchantment spells while moving, but not while stationary.
    ZealousSince the Zealous bonus is applied on hit, if you swap to a Zealous weapon from a bonus-on-attack ranged weapon (e.g. Fiery) while a projectile is in flight, you can get both bonuses.
    VampiricSince the Vampiric bonus is applied on hit, if you swap to a Vampiric weapon from a bonus-on-attack ranged weapon (e.g. Fiery) while a projectile is in flight, you can get both bonuses.
    MerchantIf you use a tonic while browsing a merchant's inventory, you will not be able to sell or buy anything unless you close and reopen it.
    Sacred RootsThe related quest can be completed without this item.
    Game updates:2011
    BowBows frequently fail to work properly on bridges, stairs and balustrades. It's possible to use a touch skill on an enemy, then attempt to shoot it with a bow, and get the "obstructed" message.
    Madness DartUnlike other hex spells that cause health degeneration, this does not cause the health bar to become purple.Unlike other hex spells, this can target a spirit. This can deal the 25 damage to a spirit and applies the visual animation around the spirit for the 10 second duration; however, the hex spell is not applied to the spirit (their health bar does not display a purple arrow pointing downwards nor do they suffer from the health degeneration).
    Guild registrarThe Guild Registrar is missing in the International Districts of pre- and post-Searing Ascalon City.
    Ranged attackEven with a clear line of sight, all spirit (e.g. Anguish), bow, and spear attack skills have a chance of not activating when standing on a bridge or stairway and on some inclines or overpasses
    Weekend eventsNeither Balthazar nor Imperial faction in Alliance Battles was doubled.
    Weekly bonusesDespite the login screen announcements of Elonian Support and Northern Support Bonus stating that points are doubled "excluding completed books", turning in completed books during the corresponding bonus will sometimes award double points.
    "Fellowship"M.O.X.'s statue has clipping issues with other hero statuesUnder certain circumstances, up to 5 copies of the same statue might be displayed.The Animal Companion statue has clipping issues with the border of the monument when placed at the center.
    Festival quest
    SohothinSohothin deals physical damage instead of fire damage as other Fiery Dragon Swords do.
    WintersdayFrom Wintersday 2014 onward, from the start of the first finale (i.e. January 1, 2015, 08:01 UTC) until the end of the event (i.e. January 2, 20:00 UTC), the Frozen Accessory Token-related NPCs (i.e. Brrrnadette, Krunch, Brrrtie, and Krisp) stopped appearing in Lion's Arch and Kamadan districts that were created before the first Winterday finale began (e.g. Lion's Arch America district 1, Kamadan America 1 to 3, and Lion's Arch and Kamadan International 1), but they continued to appear in Lion's Arch and Kamadan districts that were created after the first finale began (e.g. Korean district 1 [probably because that district was empty and was only created when a character map traveled there] and Lion's Arch and Kamadan America 5 and higher).
    Agent of BalthazarBoth male and female models of this costume have displaying issues in the form of white dots surrounding outfit's edges if the Anti-Aliasing option is enabled within the game's graphical settings.
    Poison DartThis is actually not a spell, since it can bypass skills that prevent spells from targeting you.
    Fireball (obelisk)Although the skill description says it deals 80 fire damage to target and adjacent foes, each statue around an Obelisk Flag Stand inflicts one Fireball, which deals 28 fire damage to a randomly selected single target, but not foes adjacent to the target. This happens once or twice every 3 seconds to foes that are in range of the statues, depending on the number of statues that the foe(s) is/are in range of.
    InsectMost 'scarab' monsters belong to Scarab family; however, a few are mislabeled as "Insects" in the creature files.
    CharacterSometimes after making a PvE character and then logging out to the character selection menu, the character will not appear, although when you try to make a new one, it will come up with an error message.
