tequatl update world first blackgate

Guild Wars 2 launched a new update yesterday called “Tequatl Rising“. In this release, Arenanet introduced a new public event that, for the first time, challenged players that resulted in many failures. Often times, the large dragon events were easily overcome by players. These events were recently retuned, and this new event offered plenty of frustration for much of the population.

From the update:

Something’s gotten into Tequatl the Sunless. This ancient dragon, scourge of the Splintered Coast, has become more formidable than ever with an arsenal of new attacks and lethal tricks at its disposal. To stop this rampaging beast, players will join forces with old friends and new allies in a desperate battle where failure is a very real option. Tequatl has risen, and it will take an army of players to bring it down!

If you follow the GW2 subreddit, you’ll know that it took 120 players in teamspeak to overcome this challenge.

We had 120-130 people in our teamspeak, coordinating through it.
After many arduous attempts we finally did it and had 2 minutes to spare.
Biggest factor = DPS down to 75% life as fast as you can, and getting people in positions every time teq is about to get stunned (abandon batteries with 15-20 seconds to spare, they can tank abit of damage)
