Moving towards killing Tequatl on a regular basis as we are, one of the most important things to consider is raw dps on the Dargon during the burn phases after the laser hits him. To add to player dps there are several consumable items in game. These items can also be used in instances such as Fratals and are especially useful in higher levels. They cannot be used in WvW.
they include the following:
- Fire Elemental Powder - Summons a flying fire harpie to attack your current target.
- Ogre Pet Whistle - This item will summon a pet that cannot be controlled and can be ressurected to attack your current target.
- Deployable Mortar Kit - this item will automatically rain steel on your current target within a certain range.
- Mortar Seed Turret - This item brings up a new hotbar to select between 3 different turrets. The first turret does damage. The 2nd chills the target and the 3rd heals allies.
- Jar of Bees - This item brings up a new hotbar to throw the item.
Fire Elemental Powder - Fireheart Rise - Fuller Cistern - Sati Waypoint
In the Eastern portion of the lake is the event "Defeat the monstrous tar elemental". Complete that quest and meet Jhalles Coalgrip at the island to the west with the heart labeled: Completed: Assist Engineer Verutum. The NPC will be south of the heart and will sell the Powder for a short period of time. Cost of 1 silver 4 copper each.
Ogre Pet Whistle - iron Marches - Gladefall Run - Gladefall Waypoint
I did not actually complete this questline as it was already complete. Wiki however lists it as the following: "Gortho, Son of Malik will not sell the whistle if the proper events are not completed. The event "Help the ogres defend Bronzeglade Crossing from the Flame Legion" must succeed for Malik to switch from selling tonics to whistles. From Gladefall Waypoint, if the town, SSE - Newglade Kraal, bridge is destroyed, you have to go to Grostogg's Kraal Waypoint to find the town invaded by branded. Complete that event, and Gortho, Son of Malik will revive. After the event, Gortho, Son of Malik will go outside of the town. A yellow circle will appear on its head, it will start the escort quest. Escort him to Gladefall Waypoint. When you get there, the event will finish and the Kraal will be rebuilt. Gortho will become a vendor. At this point, he will sell Ogre Pet Tonic. A few minutes later, the town will be attacked by Flame Legion. After this event succeeds, Gortho, Son of Malik will sell the whistle." This NPC sells the whistle for a short period of time. Cost of 1 silver 4 copper each.
Deployable Mortar kit - Fireheart Rise - Sloven Pitch - breaktooth's Waypoint
Due west and slightly north of the waypoint is an island that contains a POI and skill challenge. On the pillar on the island is a dead NPC named Legionnaire Virgrol Brashmar and an enemy Veteran NPC. Engage and destroy the Veteran and Legionnaire Virgrol Brashmar will resurrect. he will then return to the waypoint camp. This NPC sells the Mortar kit for a short period of time. Cost of 1 silver 4 copper each.

The event in Wychmire Swamp requires one to kill a number of waves of undead and then report to Captain Bren. The events in Sandycove require one to again kill undead waves and report to Saraid. Both NPC's sell the Mortar seed for a short period of time. Cost of 16 copper each.
