Since July 20th, the boss fight against the Twisted Puppet in Guild Wars 2 hasn’t gone away, but it has indirectly become more difficult. Because with the end of the community event, the public instance of this activity is no longer available. This was easier because significantly more players could compete against the monstrous puppet and its minions. In the squad version – which is still available – 50 players have to coordinate perfectly. But from the developer’s point of view, this is exactly what works out better and better.

Tips for fighting the puppet: So you defeat the mighty boss in GW2

Guild Wars 2 players needed to get out of their comfort zone

“The puppet is a demanding fight and the individual players have a huge impact on the outcome of the event. It requires a high level of coordination and collaboration – much more than with most other world bosses. We think it’s fair to say that it took some players out of their comfort zone, but we’re glad the community took up the challenge. “, explain the developers in the forum. The successful attempts of the players have increased with each passing day – one week after the re-release of the puppet there were twice as many victories as at the beginning. The developers firmly believe that these numbers will get even better.




In the final showdown, when it comes to destroying the last chain, the puppet spits dangerous AoE fields - after all, it can no longer use its arms and legs.

Marionette will return as a public authority

It is true that the makers of Guild Wars 2 (buy now 39,95 € ) at first worried that the puppet was too hard for a permanent place in the rotation of world bosses like Tequatl, Zerschmetterer & Co, but now they are confident: “After checking the data, we have a much better feeling about it. While the public entry option of the Marionette has closed as planned, we will be making some changes to the encounter so that we can put it back into public rotation permanently. ”




While players are defending the lanes, others are fighting on the platforms - meanwhile the puppet attacks them with all possible means.  Here she uses her colossal blade.

Upcoming changes to the fight against the puppet

The updates and adjustments to the puppet will still take a while, but the developers can already announce two upcoming innovations:

  • The squad version will not start the event timer until the leader of the squad has confirmed that the group is ready for the instance.
  • The public version will only start the event timer when the minimum number of players required has arrived in the instance.

The changes to the puppet event should be ready in late summer, so that the public version of the fight will be available again. Until then, the squad variant will continue to be open to everyone.
