it does spawn. The spawn timer is just different since it depends on when he last spawned was killed/not killed and the general spawn window. Stick around any map, overflow or not, for at least 90 minutes and you’re garunteed to encounter him

You need to take tequatl down to 50 % hp, then he’ll cast his new ability Vortex. If you stay inside the vortex long enough, a chest will appear. Hence the achievement.

I just found it! 😛 We got Teq down to 75% and he sent us to an underwater grave. The achievement came to mind so I looked down and saw a chest in the distance. Touching it got me the achievement.
The hard part is getting to it since the entire time, your hp is dropping. Luckily I was on my warrior with Healing Signet, Adrenal health, and Mango Pie regeneration. I thought I took screenshots but oh well. I’ll try looking for it again when Teq’s up again.

It’s not always Teq, first daily that counted for me was just participation in killing a world boss, I killed the Jungle Wurm for that one and it still counted.

TEQUATL, ONE OF MY GREATEST CREATIONS. BEWARE FOR THIS IS NOT EVEN HIS FINAL FORM.

Battlecast Tequatl, coming soon to a League near you.

FYI: You won’t be able to see the dragon footprint for “Shoesize: Massive” if you play on low graphic settings. (You can still interact with it.)

It’s just 1 setting that affects this: Environment. Low will not show the footprint. Set your Environment to Medium or High if you want to see it. (You can still get it, but you have to hunt for the little yellow “Dragon Footprint” text, which is much harder to find).

WTH? How did Tequatl go down so fast when timer reached 8 minutes? I see him spamming a button, then the boss receiving like 41k damage multiple times, if i remember well. Dev Cheat or what?

There is a bridge to the ice ship there. Go over the bridge and before you go into the ship take a left and you will see it down there.

Actually, that scale, you have to go into the polar-dude’s place and get to the next level and head towards the edge. You should see it on a point sticking out of that ship above the water.

I’m stuck at #3 of Hunt the Dragon: Sparkfly Fens – Find 10 dragon tooth. I’m not sure if it’s a bug or what but when I “interact” with the “dragon tooth” the bar goes up to half then it stops and nothing happens. The achievement log is not updated. I tried going to location #4 and the same thing. The bar goes up to half then nothing happens. Anybody else experienced this?

This is happening to me at #3, too.. came here to see if I was the only one.

Edit: So I noticed this happening to me again at spot 9, and it happened after I interacted a second time (OCD, sorta like checking the stove even though you know you already turned it off), my toon’s making an animation as to say “no, no, tsk, tsk”. Gonna run to another to check my theory.

Edit: This is exactly what’s happening.

If you have the dailies on “Track” it will tell you as soon as the item is clicked whether or not the percentage of that daily has gone up in completion. If it doesn’t go up, there is a chance you’ve already gotten it as some point.
Or at least, that’s what I’ve found to be easiest to determine the achievements if I’m not getting a sustained bar, or character reaction..

This is what’s happening to me at Frostgorge #2 (the underwater one). While interacting with it, character does nothing, but face it. I know that if you’ve been there before, character does this, “nuh uh” emote. I hope they fix these glitches soon :/

When the dragon will get to 75% he will start summoning vortexes. If you get sucked into one of them you should swim down. But take care case underwater you will loose hp. 🙂

Oh, duh I didn’t think about that LOL now I feel dumb; I guess I just assumed there would be more than one daily XD

Typo in “She’s Over There!” achievement, it’s listed as “She’s Over Here!” for me
(minus the T, I actually only noticed because I mistyped it myself in google)

Anyone know how long Boss Week is gonna last? It’s not actually a single week, is it? I really wish Anet would clearly state how long each LS event arc is gonna last, or put timers on all achievement sections like they do for daily and monthly. It’s bloody frustrating having to jump through hoops to get the end dates and not just starting dates.

Things are hardly “like usual”, considering that half, if not more, of the living story installments lasted for a full month. The only thing that’s certain is when the next release is coming out, but that says little in the terms of when the current one ends. Throw in some misleading titles like Boss “Week”, and things just get confusing.

But yeah, I guess no release is gonna last fewer than two weeks since that would mean a break in continuity.

The first new content release of a cycle lasts 4 weeks with a 2 week release midway (e.g. SAB – 4 weeks, Boss “Week” – 2 weeks)

You go and fight the dragon for 3 days. Sadly, this has been stacked so
hard that we have no chance to win. Too many people show-up, die and
just lay on the ground.
