There is a dynamic event in Guild Wars 2 that takes place outside a settlement in the Cursed Shore. The settlement doesn’t have a name, but the waypoint is called Meddler’s Waypoint. There is an NPC merchant there named Halla Corpseflayer. Apparently she also starts a dynamic event. It would be a huge mistake to do this event.This dynamic event entails you enraging the nearby risen to attack Halla Corpseflayer. The objective of the quest is actually to let the Risen kill her. It’s not bugged. The longer you defend her, the longer the quest is drawn out. I spent at least an hour doing this quest. There was a huge group of players as well. We did not figure out the objective until she was at about 15%. At that point, getting other players to stop attacking so the Risen could kill her was pretty rough. Finally the dynamic event ended, and I was awarded one silver, ninety-six copper for my hour of work.
If you manage to come across this quest, just remember the object is to let her die. Kill a few risen to make sure you get your gold medal, but that’s it. If it’s just a small group of players, it might be worthwhile. Other than that, there are no fun mechanics involved. At the end she just walks back inside the settlement. There’s nothing else to see. I was pretty annoyed.
Are there any other dynamic events you’ve run across like this?
UPDATE As the first person’s comment suggests, this is actually a great event for loot. I hadn’t even given this event a second thought since it annoyed me the first time I came across it. You can stay for as long as you want to farm the mobs – no need to be there from start to finish. Just make sure you have that Magic Find gear on!
