Underwater Skimmer

Skimmers Are Evolving

Sibaha, a talented but arrogant skimmer trainer, has taken a squadron of skimmers with her on a quest to unlock their true potential. Players who have completed Path of Fire™ can head to any major city to start the collection to track her down, unlock a new mastery, and teach their own skimmer a few new tricks.


  • A new button has been added to the Mystic Forge that allows players to quickly place the same stacking items from their last recipe into the same ingredient slots after accepting the previous output.
  • A new filter menu has been added to the Achievements tab of the Hero panel.
  • Nearly Completed achievements on the Achievements Summary page can now be sorted by tier completion or total completion.

Go for a Swim with the Shell Surfer Skimmer Skin

Shell Surfer Skimmer Skin

Quick and easy underwater travel used to be a thing of dreams, but now it’s a thing of beauty. The streamlined body of the Shell Surfer reduces friction and drag in the water and allows it to swim at a much swifter pace than two-legged terrestrial riders could ever achieve alone.

The Shell Surfer Skimmer Skin is available for direct purchase, or it can be found as an uncommon drop inside Black Lion Chests.
