Bounty Guide

[EVA] BOUNTY LOOT HOARDERS. INDIANA JONES STYLE.

Welcome to the Bounty Breakdown!

If you’re new to Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire and want a head start on what bounties are and how they operate, this guide is for you. If you’re a more veteran player, this guide will hopefully help give you tips and hints on making your Bounty hunt more exciting and survivable experience.
Let’s get started!

Bounty Information

What are Bounties? 

Bounties are the optional champs that you can pick up contracts to kill for special loot. Think of them more as optional champs you choose when to kill instead of the game spawning them in randomly on the map and letting them roll over your face.​

  • Rewards are given for participating in the bounty.

  • Not necessary to claim  the bounty contract on the board to get the reward. Bounty board contract only activates the bounty, a commander can get contracts, squad members can just follow the tag should stay at the previous bounty’s location, then move to the commander’s mark, to prevent unnecessary travel. Each bounty has a 10-min timer to defeat.

  • Bounty contracts reappear on the board 30 minutes after death or after the 10-min countdown in failed kill attempts.

  • Each Bounty Champ has  unique mechanics tied to  ti Affixes are random with exception to Legendary Bounties. In other words, 1 bounty can have 3-7 mechanics to watch out for, all in all: 2-3 unique mechanics + 2-3 Affixes (3 in Legendaries) + CC.

  • Some Bounty, especially Vabbi Bounty Champs and Leg have boons, so bring something to corrupt those!

How to Command it?

Form Subgroup 2 with 6 people including commander.

     1. Mark players arrow, circle, heart, square and star. (From left to right)

     2. Mark bounties arrow, circle, heart, square and star. (From left to right. Star is always Legendary bounty)

     3. Marked players then pick up their assigned bounties accordingly. (Commander picks up 5th bounty)

     4. Commander takes bounties one by one and mark them on the map as:

               i. Arrow bounty - Personal Waypoint
               ii. Circle bounty - Squad attack order (X sign)
               iii. Heart bounty - Squad defend order (Shield sign)
               iv. Square bounty - Squad rally order (down arrow sign)
               v. Star bounty - Legendary ( spawn at fixed location)

    5. After marking, the commander will then figure out a route to reach each Bounty one after another, without going back to the bounty board to get the next contract. In this technique, bounty can be done faster.

Note:

If the commander is going to do the typical leading style of this train where no one is assigned to pick up the contract except the tag, it is advised for the rest of the squad to not pick up bounties, only the commander. This prevents situations where, en-route to a commander’s bounty target, someone else’s bounty spawns a champion and the squad has to divert to kill it, or waste it. Be aware of players who may have accepted bounties that may activate en-route to your bounty target. If such an activation happens, divert the squad to clear the accidentally activated one first, to not waste it.

Unstable Magic Abilities

These are the blue icons seen upon hovering below a Bounty Champ's portrait.
All bounty targets are locked out of using the below skills for a few seconds when their break bar is broken.


NOTE:

 They can still use their regular skills!

Champions pick 2 from this list at random:

Legendary Bounties, in addition to picking 2 from the above list, pick a third from this Legendary-exclusive affix list:

Exploiter - identify weak point by going inside the huge bubble that surrounds the bounty,(if not contraindicated by other affixes like polluter and 
                      scorcher), dodge out and DPS, you can pick up the buff in the bubble again. No need to stack and stay inside just to get the buff.
Flash freeze - time your jumps to avoid freezing pulses
Frightener - condi cleanse. avoid fright circles
Hammerer - care for knockdowns, buff stability if you have
Ley enery build up - care for orbs. cleanse in orbs whenever it re spawns. huge stacks = huge ticking damage (you can cleanse then go back to bounty)
Petrifier - condi cleanse when stunned (or turn your view away when a big eye appear above the bounty)
Phase-shifted - stay in blue color. only pets/illusions will remain near bounty during BLUE PHASE where arrow is pointing outwards. Most of your
                             hits will be evaded if you DPS our of blue area, condis casted previously will still keep on ticking.
Polluter - RED POISON CIRCLE: DODGE OUT/CHANGE POSITION/Max Melee range if you are squishy or do not have CONDI CLEANSE. Melees watch the ground you're stepping in.
