Achievement

There are 10 Firecrackers in total, you only need 5 for the daily achievement but for the achievement Firecracker Finder you will need to find all 10.

For doing the 5 for the daily, I recommend skipping the 1st one and just do 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 if you don’t feel like jumping too much.

Golden Firestarter – 5 AP

Dragon Ball

A guide to the GW2 Dragon Ball mini game introduced with the Lunar New Year in 2015. This is identical to the Dragon Ball from Dragon Bash back in 2013.

How to play

  • All players receive a speed buff and there are no falling damage. When you take damage, you do not regen health over time and must collect health orbs (blue) to heal up.
  • You start off with just one skill and must collect power ups (orange orbs) to gain additional abilities. These orbs are specific and only grant you with certain skills (see table below).

  • The team that scores 500 points win. You only gain points by defeating enemy opponents (20 points per kill)
  • Each match can be expected to last between 7 to 10 minutes.
  • Use the bouncy pads to move around. These pads are directional (i.e. it will bounce in the direction you are moving) and if you dodge roll onto these pads they will bounce you up further.

Power Ups

Power Ups are located in specific locations on the map.

gw2-dragon-ball-arena-powerups

Since there are roughly three vertical levels to this map, it is divided into top, middle and bottom. If you take a cross section of the map, this becomes more clear. Any power ups located on top of the tunnel or on the planks above are classified as top. Any power ups located inside the tunnel are classified as middle and any power ups on near the water level are classified as bottom.

#: On the very bottom level of the map smack in the middle is the Dragon Damage power up (marked as #). Consuming this power up will grant you 60 damage per attack instead of 15 damage for a few seconds. In the same location but on the top level is the power up that will grant you invisibility.

1: These are Super Dragon Spheres with increased ranged and faster hits compared to the normal Dragon Spheres. You can find them in four corners of the map inside the tunnels usually next to the jump pad.

2: Dragon Bombs are located on the top level above the tunnels. Much like the Super Dragon Spheres, they are also located on the four sections of the room.

3: These power ups for the Icy Dragon Trap are located between the two tunnel entrances on either side of the map.
