This is a step by step guide to the final personal story mission "Victory or Death". Naturally if you are not there or do NOT wish spoilers then please press back now

A Few Notes
You can only do the mission if the way point Arah is uncontested. You can either wait for someone else to free it or help do it.

Currently there are a couple of potential bugs to watch out for. Any sort of disconnect by the instance creator can cause the final fight to bug out and not happen. Also, we all had an "error 7" when towards the end of part 1. We fixed it by going outside and reforming the team and making a new instance.

This also is not THE only way, or indeed THE best way of doing it. It's a way that worked very well for us and we did the whole thing is about an hour with no defeats using 2 mesmers, 2 warriors and a thief. I've also pugged it a couple of times, so as long as you play like a team you'll be fine :)

Non-Spoiler Hints
  • The Dungeon isn’t hard. But does need some coordination, so consider Voice Comms and nominating a team leader. Trying to be a lone hero will prove expensive.
  • Take range weapons, there are parts of this that will be very hard to do if you are all melee
  • Condition removal is a must.
  • Call when downed
  • Allow 1-2 hours

Nice guide, but a bit pointless. I did the final story mission with PUG that didn't communicate or even call targets and found it even easier than AC story mode.

Thanks for the guide. I haven't got to that point yet but it was cool hearing how your strategies went. And the pics help a lot too.

It is a nice guide, but it really wasn't that hard.  Did the entire thing 4 man with a warrior, ranger, thief and engineer, we didn't wipe entirely at any time, though the bit on the airship was a little frantic.

Was a bit of a letdown.  Once all mobs were taken care of on the ship...it was just a matter of shooting him down...never even really got to fight him.

Was fun, but a little anti-climactic

Can you tell me where the event is to open up the waypoint?  I can get the guys to complete the event, but we can't find it.

Tip: you can hit the giant in part 5 with the cannons from the gunship to make things a bit quicker as he should be just in range. you'll need to port back to the waypoint to do this though.
