She’s Over Here! – Sparkfly Fen

  • Rox can be found near the waypoint but she may sometimes wander around


  • Murth

    Kinda sad you end up in overflow when it spawns…

    • Morten Møller Jakobsen

      Why? Event happens in overflow as well.

      • Murth

        Didn’t happen for me. Does it work like scarletts overflow then?

        • Morten Møller Jakobsen

          That’s what they promised, although I can’t confirm it, I wasn’t in overflow.

          • Qrko

            I can confirm, I was in one and it started 3 minutes later than on my main server.

        • Pip Clank

          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

    • Magica

      Seems someone already posted a map about all the places, big wave to that guy <3

  • Ale Stayrock

    Anyone found the sunken treasure? for “I found it” achivement?

    • Mockingbird

      im looking for this one too 🙁

    • nithilin

      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.

    • Echoen

      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.

  • Doomer1

    Did all the achievements and have 6 of 9…..I guess more content coming?

    • seerio


      • mundou

        which dailys? i only have here be dragons and i am now at 6/9 or do u mean over the next days?

        • Thayet

          Do the Tequatl event once a day.

          • Tsar CUBE

            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.

    • Bi Jay

      There are dailys which count.

  • Magica

    All Pictures from frostgorge clues here.
    Add the descriptions if you like.

    • Magica

      Two more.

  • Ashura Uchiha

    in the second part 4 and 10 are the same

    • refresh the page, it has being updated

      • Alpha O Mega

        you sir, are a godsend 😀

        • Thank the players, not me. I just compiled all the info they sent to me 🙂

          • Alpha O Mega

            your compiling skills sir, are godsend

            • Shifted


  • Creator Viktor


    Battlecast Tequatl, coming soon to a League near you.

  • Alpha O Mega

    you should totally do a guide on the Boss section of Tequatl. I will give you my firstborn son.

  • poebel

    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.)

    • sharkmegabyte

      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).

  • tcp

    well done thanks for updating

  • Grongher

    i’ve talked with warmaster narru and he said something about protecting batteries :s maybe this is a hint for defeating Tequatl?

  • Wytchling

    The one for Arkor’s Tomb in Frostgorge is directly north of Ridgerock Camp Waypoint.

  • jedijonas
    just watch this and you know what to do ^^

    • Heretiko

      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?

  • Jayntree

    Which dailies count for this acheivement?

  • Amadahy

    Help 🙁
    Danke 🙂

    • Jayntree

      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.

    • Reivetel

      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.

  • Mal Longshot

    great guide

  • Nipenthis

    I thought they rewarded 6/9? Or was that 6th point like a daily or something I did without noticing?

    • 6th is a daily, you automatically get if you participated in the Tequatl fight

  • gravyboy25

    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?

    • Virindia

      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.

      • Reivetel

        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..

      • gravyboy25

        Same thing is happening to me.

    • MoldyPeaches

      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 :/

  • Caraal

    I can’t find the sunken treasure within a watery grave. Im looking for it while the dragon is actually attacking.

    • Fazhu

      Maybe you have to actually defeat teq before it shows up?

    • Joanna Piekarz

      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. 🙂

  • Randi Etheridge

    Does anyone know what the other dailies are? It only looks like there is the ‘here be dragons’ one :/

    • Leviathan Scourge

      It is a daily, there will be one each day. So for the back piece you need to play for 4 days.

      • Randi Etheridge

        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

  • Skellentrop

    you are missing number 7 on your overall map for Frostgorge for those of you wondering which one isnt there.

    • No 7 is there, at the very bottom

  • Dorian zu Heltzer

    Thank you !!!

  • Witch


  • Guest

    Thanks for the guide! Now I just need to wait too more days for Boss of the Week Daily! =D

  • Thanks for the guide! Now I just need to wait two more days for Boss of the Week Daily! =D

  • Oldman 65

    Cannot find the daily for Boss Week listing for today, cannot seem to find where to go for it.

    • Daily is Boss week: here be dragons, basically participate in Tequatl encounter or any other world boss encounter 1 time.

      • Sometimes it’s only Tequatl that counts (like today).

        • Yup, as long you participate in the Tequatl encounter you should be safe 🙂

  • fyrye

    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)

    • Thanks, corrected

  • Hanatash

    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.

    • Two weeks like usual, until oct 1

      • Hanatash

        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.

        • fruiyt

          2 as usual

        • AvengerOros

          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)

      • Heather Ceana

        If it is 2 weeks, why is it called “week”? Why not something more accurate?

  • yolo

    i only got 6/9 what now ?

    • Heather Ceana

      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.

  • Lummy

    You can still get the Shoe Size: Massive, but I think the others are now removed.

  • Suìcúne

    i still can do that?
