GW2 Shadow of the Mad King Mad Memoires Act II quest guide with detailed walkthrough. Click here if you did not do ACT I yet as you will need to complete ACT I first.

Look at your Mad Memoires Book, it will say the following..

A recollection of the life and deeds of Mad King Thorn, as recounted by his loyal subjects and friends. The volume ends with the coronation of King Thorn. It seems incomplete..

Super quick run down (provided by Legionn)

#VII – Gendarran Fields – Ascalon Settlement Waypoint – Northern ruins in an archway.
#VIII – Harathi Hinterlands – Demetra Waypoint – In the Martyr’s Tomb.
#IX – Bloodtide Coast – Laughing Gull Waypoint – NW side of island on a wrecked ship.
#X – Harathi Hinterlands – Seraph’s Landing Waypoint – Look for a building with supplies in the floor.
#XI – Harathi Hinterlands – Arca Waypoint – On the bridge to the East, use Aqueous Scan to douse the fire.
#XII – Sparklfly Fen – Fort Cadence Waypoint – In the basement between 2 pillars to the left of the ghostly throne.

Act 2 Start – Gendarran Fields – Memoire VII: Handless

- Stories yet untold despite the power that marks a spooky site. When humans flee their homes of old, where they settle cannot be told.

Go to Gendarran Fields, Ascalonian Settlement and then locate the location indicated by the arrow (use the dotted line if you are unsure). If you use Corporeal Field scan (4), it will reveal a suspicious location.

The clue given is The landing at Arca struggles to fill its storeroom so it will never starve again (#8).

Mad Memoires X: Tax-o-Lanterns

Go to Harathi Hinterlands again, this time head to Seraph’s Landing waypoint in the NW corner, you will need to go a bit south from the armor repair guy and go up the stairs.

madmemories7madmemories8

Clue given: Green is the color I want to remember. Not the red of flames or the blackened plateau. The Bridge, even it was green (site#9)

Mad Memoires XI: Flames of Renewal

This one is also in Harathi Hinterlands. Go to  the northeast bridge that spans over Arca lake.. Use your scanner (gaseous scan #2)  there to reveal a suspicious location on the bridge to start the flaming ghost event.  Use aqueous scan to find suspicious spots to reveal buckets of water to douse the flame on the ghost.  Anyways, the ghost is Portia and she will hand you the book Mad Memoires XI: Flames of Renewal after she gets doused off (some players reported able to run up to her and grab the book before they die form the fire damage if they can’t find a way to douse her off).

madmemories9madmemories10

Clue given: Walk in cadence with King Thorn’s shattered subjects. They keep their hatred deep within (site #10)

Now you are done! Head back to Lion’s Arch and hand everything back to Magister Tassi

  • Geckilian

    Blimey you’re quick to start this!

  • http://www.facebook.com/guilherme.martins.393950 Guilherme Martins

    the clue… is it about the haratih hinterlands ruins of the holy dementra

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      my bad, correcting it now. it is indeed fenn.

  • Bikkstah

    This is wrong. You use the candymeter at the Emissary of Dwayna and then an NPC called Fenn spawns who gives you Book 8.

    • TooTer

      I didn’t use any scan. I knelt at the statue and then talked to it and it gave me the page.

  • Arya Beth Stark

    Dwayna appears, wont hand me the book :(

    • Joe

      talk to fenn, not dwayna

      • Arya Beth Stark

        No Fenn here

    • Bikkstah

      Use your Candymeter. Dulfy’s post is wrong, Emissary of Dwayna does not give the book, an NPC called Fenn that spawns on top of her does. It’s very confusing.

  • Joe

    Is site #7 the Pirate jumping puzzle in LA?

  • Arya Beth Stark

    Ok, you have to talk to Fenn, but you have to summon him with the scanner by pressung 3 (Etheric Scan)

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      ty

  • nagrom

    speculation: the gullet of bone = sharkmaw caverns?

    • Isami

      Been there, haven’t found anything :(

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      ocean’s gullet in sparkfly fens which we checked, now checking laughing gull in bloodtide coast

      • Dana

        Dulfy, page 12 is in my comment above you.

    • Dana

      have found this site: go to sparkfly fen, and go into the crypt/tomb at north fort cadence. when there on the bottom floor, south wall on a column there is an unlit torch. scan there for page 12.

  • Withabix

    Give Bloodtide Coast and Laughing gull island a shot ;)

  • derms

    I think it’s at Bloodtide coast: laughing skull island is close to sorrowful sound

    • katreyn

      leaning towards this as well. can’t really find a place or remember a place thats full of bones or anything here though.

  • Ted

    Laughing gull island in bloodtide coast?

  • Koclobster

    3rd is the small boat south of Sorrowful Sound in Bloodtide Coast

  • Edric

    On a ship between sorroful sound and laughing gull island

  • Mark

    9th page is in bloodtide coast, laughing gull waypoint, on a half sunken ship on the northern part of the island.

  • BB

    Maybe it’s in one of the gullets? Ocean’s Gullet and Gasters Gullet

  • Bikkstah

    Page 9 – Bloodtide Coast, Laughing Gull Waypoint. Go to the half sunk ship in the water north of the island. There is a suspicious location clickable gear. Click it and a Haunted Door will open. An event will start to kill Mad Realm NPCs until a Veteran Candy Elemental spawns. After his defeat, Seamarshal Bennu spawns who gives you page 9

  • Grizz
    • Lsy

      thanks

  • Marketh

    The third one is in Bloodtide Coast, Sorrowful Sound. Go south from Sorrowful Waypoint and the ghost can be found on a boat wreck, Seamarshal Bennu. The ghost was already there for me, but I assume you use the aqua-related scan.

  • Akiyama

    4th one is from Arca Waypoint in Harathi.

  • Bikkstah

    Page 10 – Seraph’s Landing Waypoint in Harathi Highlands. Go South of the Armorsmith icon (The “helm” icon on the map) and go up the stairs. There is a storeroom with hay, use your candymeter to find the ghost NPC Rufus.

  • Ted

    Arca lake hattari hinterland?

  • BB

    I found Mad Memory’s XII : Descension

  • http://twitter.com/CommNagrom Morgan Sedeyn

    any idea what the acra reference is?

  • redhead

    Clue from 10 – “green is the color i want to remember. not the red of flames ofr the blackened plateau. the bridge, even it was green.” any ideas?

    • derms

      diessa plateau?

  • Rozyn

    Page 11 is still in Hinterlands, southern side of the northern most bridge over lake Arca, she’s on fire, basically, just south of the stand of 3 trees on the western side of the road just before the bridge. There’s an event to extinguish the flames, but water buckets don’t work. You can roll into her real fast and spam talk before you get killed to get the next page though.

    • Rozyn

      uh, meant eastern side of the road just before the bridge.

    • katreyn

      Yeah I dunno what to do. Spamming her doesn’t work. And I can’t find any buckets. >.<

    • Hugo

      To get water buckets, use your candymeter to reveal a shiny near the ring. Putting out the flames with that bucket works fine, but you must put out the entire ring…

  • Bikkstah

    Page 11 is in Harathi as well. Take the Arcallion WP and go SW to the bridge on your map. it is covered in green moss. Portia the ghost is surrounded by flames here. Kill nearby NPCs to get buckets of water to douse the flames. When they subside, she hands you page 11.

  • Dana

    have found this site: go to sparkfly fen, and go into the crypt/tomb at north fort cadence. when there on the bottom floor, south wall on a column there is an unlit torch. scan there for page 12.

  • Legionn

    #VII – Gendarran Fields – Ascalon Settlement Waypoint – Northern ruins in an archway.
    #VIII – Harathi Hinterlands – Demetra Waypoint – In the Martyr’s Tomb.

      thank you :D

      • Legionn

        Thank you for the credit above.

  • Shepardx

    the seraphs landing is in NW corner, no NE :)

  • Bikkstah

    Page 12 is in Fort Cadence in Sparkfly Fens on the very bottom floor. Take the Fort Cadence Waypoint (or Mire Waypoint if Fort Cadence is contested). Head north and go down to the bottom floor. There is a ghostly throne and a veteran captain. Use your candymeter between the 4th and 5th pillars from the throne, on the left. Wynn gives you page 12.

  • manniL

    For Tax-o-Lanterns you need to scan w/ the last option

  • http://diwafernandez.com/ thepoet

    Thank you so much for updating so fast; must be really stressful.

  • Nubb

    X is in NW not NE, thanks for guide :)

  • theguf

    Mad Memories X: Tax-o-Lanterns

    “Go to Harathi Hinterlands again, this time head to Seraph’s Landing waypoint in the NE corner”
    Seraph’s Landing is NW corner

  • Gantoris

    Flames of Renewal there is a suspecious location on the bridge that triggers the flaming ghost event

  • Gandolfi

    With the ghost Portia in Harathi Hinterlands, we tried an aqueous scan which seemed to douse the flames…

  • Guest

    For page 11, during the flame event, you use aqueous scan to find a susicipous spot and that spot allows you to pick up buckets of water to douse the flames

  • VanishN

    For page 11, during the flame event, you use aqueous scan to find a suspicious spot and that spot allows you to pick up buckets of water to douse the flames

  • Jason Young

    Does this change the book’s appearance or stats in any way?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      oh yes, both appearence and stats. The book looks alot cooler now :D

      • Jason Young

        Oh wow, just saw a vid of it, very nice!

  • xvicex

    Thank you for compiling all this .
    Tons of help..saving alot of unneeded aggravation:)

  • Faalagorn

    Two typos:
    – It’s “Mad Memories VII: Handless” not “Memories VIII: Handless”

    – The fort name is Fort Cadence, not Fort Cadenza :)

    Just a small typos, that are a tiny bit confusing, but as always, a great guide anyway :D

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      thanks for pointing them out, wrote them in a hurry :D

    It’s Mad Memoires, not Memories.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      woah, thanks for the catch, I really thought it was mad memories, and didn’t know it was memoires. that made sense

    Thanks a lot for the guide, it was very helpful! :)

  • mikah

    Thanks for all the help :) Nice job!

  • http://www.mmochronicles.com/ Alice Kaye

    Can this be done on a low level (like 10ish) with help from a higher level?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      if you have some of invis or have a group of high levels to clear the area before you enter it then ya. Bloodtide Coast/Harathi Hinterlands areas have alot of mobs

      • http://www.mmochronicles.com/ Alice Kaye

        Man this is such a pain. I doubt I’d have a group. I guess I’ll see what I can get together tomorrow night. I definitely want to make this book flame, so I’ll have to do whatever it takes to get it done.

        Thanks for the reply, Dulfy. Much appreciated!

  • Kellerak

    I did this at lvl-18, was a complete bitch, but still managed

    • http://www.mmochronicles.com/ Alice Kaye

      Did you do it alone or with others? Trying to gauge at what level I can complete this darn thing.

    Is there a point of keeping the old book once you get the upgraded one?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      not really. You can transmute it for appearence etc

  • Yami

    Is there a part 3? i saw someone link a Yellow rare Version of the Book cape.

  • Robin

    Thanks again, with this guide you got me to the end of a task I probably wouldn’t have bothered attempting on my own. Cheers!

  • Doctor Steam

    I have the regular Mad Memories book. Will I be able to complete act 2 in 2014? Were people able to do it again in 2013? I want the fire effect on it.

      Hmm I don’t think it is coming back, it didn’t in 2013
