Subdirector Noll – Caeldon Forest (near Hanto Trading Post)

He is located at Caledon Forest in the Trader Green area west of Hanto Trading Post. Subdirector Noll  will periodically spawns an event to intimidate his guards. Due to the amount of players near him, you may not to get the kill credit necessary to complete the event the first time. Once you complete the event, talk to him and he will sent you another mail to find Canach (Kessex Hills)

Quaggan – Caledon Forest – Stormwreck Deeps POI

Go to this POI at east part of Caledon Forest. Inside the water you will see a capture Quaggan named Pastkeeper Saballa, there is an event to rescue her but it is bugged on some servers.

pastkeeper_saballapastkeeper_saballa2

If she is already rescued, she will be a bit east of that location.

peacekeeper_saballa

Anyways, she will ask you to collect stuff for her to jog her memory..

You will need to hand her the three following items in any order. Do not hand her Driftwood or Coral Head, If you do so, you will need to pick up the three items again.

Seaweed sea_weed
Sea Urchin sea_urchin
Sea Scallop sea_scallop

Once you handed her all 3 items, you will receive Magic Scroll from Pastkeeper Saballa.

Hylek – Metrica Province – NW of Michotl Grounds Waypoint

You will find Gukumatz, a hylek here, he will ask you collect 4 supplies which are scattered on the ground in the general area around him. You have to collect them in order and make sure to not press F twice. The sequence that worked for me was Fire –> Jolt –> Water –> Earth but others have reported other sequences working as well.

Fire/Fiery Alchemical supplies  is near Gukumatz, just south of him.

fiery_alchemical_supplies

Jolting/Lighting Alchemical supplies is way east of Gukumatz

Water Alchemical Supplies is slightly east of Gukumatz

Earthly  Alchemy Supplies is near the skill point

After you collect all 4, head back to Gukumatz and you will receive Alchemical Potion.

Largos – Kessex Hills – Viathan Lake

Here you will find Fahd al’Eshadhi, there is an event to escort him in eliminating krait patrols. If there is no event, you will find a chest in that location (chest marked with a star symbol) that allow you can simply loot the Strange Shell without having to interact with Fahd (image of chest provided by nightrunner)

Researcher Levvi – Lion’s Arch

Once you have the Magic Scroll, Strange Shell, and Alchemical Potion from the quaggan, hylek, and largo, head to Researcher Levvi in LA and she will give you 5 Captains Council Commendations (if you are unsure what they are used for, check here)

  • Tashianda

    how do you damage the “Veteran Karka Egg Layer”

  • The Hermit

    Canach is bugged on Crystal Desert so you can’t progress after a few steps. Very anoying!

  • MtthwRddl

    You talk to Blingg and he mails you a letter from Noll telling him to cover up stuff.

    That’s as far as I’ve gotten.

    You can talk to a lady near the forge and buy donation materials. Supposedly if you put the material and some donation items in the forge, you get a token of some kind.

  • Megumii

    Siegemaster Dulfy!

    • fazhu23

      I know right!?? Also be sure to target her first, the ballista will just keep on getting repaired over and over again even if you take them down.

    • Wanderer

      noticed that as well :) long-haired blonde :D

    • shakah

      where is s. dulfy???

      • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

        in one of the fractals called urban something

  • Guildwars2 Rules

    I am targetting all those barrels, containers etc at the exact same order you suggest and nothing happens !

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Did you grab a crowbar and try to open up the Sealed Cargo Barrel?

      • Guildwars2 Rules

        Ty mate it seems that if you dont speak to the npc first it does not work..cool now !

  • Gnarkiller

    Canach is bugged on Blackgate as well.

  • Slaterbbx

    Canach is also bugged on IOJ too. :-( , Great post!

    • Allanon

      Canach working again on IOJ but since Noll is still bugged no drop from Canach. Events need to be done in the correct order :(

  • Pingback: November Update – Phase 1, Freitag › GW2 Champion()

  • dorinaem

    Can do 2 and 3 without 1? Coz of lag and crap raged the starting event.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      yes they are all independent of each other

  • stuffsticks

    Seems Noll has bugged on Gandara.. been waiting like 30min for him

    • nightrunner

      Same bug on Crystal Desert too. We hv a huge foodfight for abt 1 hr while waiting for him to respawn lol

  • Francisco

    Phase 1 one time event pass already?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      yup, was over 30 mins after it started. You didn’t miss much, it was very laggy too heh

  • Destarius

    you turn in the strange shell, magic scroll, and alchemical potion to head researcher levvi in LA and she gives you 5 captains council commendations

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      thanks! event was bugged on my server so couldn’t complete it :(

  • Groovia

    Cannach aslo bugged at Tarnished Coast

  • velocirabbit

    So is that all you get from this quest chain? Five Commendations?

    • nightrunner

      some dialogues are funny too, especially the history btw Levi & Blingg. Now i cracked up whenever I hear a Asuran NPC says “Be always LOYAL to your krewe” XD

  • broccolismasher

    How could they get this far? On my server everything is bugged from Canach and up….

  • Hawks

    Do you know if these DEs going to only be around today, the weekend, or are they permanent?

  • digi_owl

    So all these chains give are commendations? If so i think i’ll just sit this one out (or go stuff items into the forge alongside packing materials).

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      First investigation give you a jug of karma, the second one from Miyani give you 5 commendations. The rewards are not that great for the amount of traveling but hopefully they will have better rewards for the final phase.

  • ShadowBroker

    Lol Dulfy. “Subdirector Noll will periodically spawns an event to intimate his guards.” — I don’t think Noll is getting intimate with his guards, but given the amount of people swarming the area to farm that event, he ‘could’ be! :D

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      hehe thanks for the catch :D

      • ShadowBroker

        No problem. Not being a troll or anything, it just jumped out and if you’ve seen the swarm of players around him. It also fits since you can’t tell what he is doing as the fights over as quick as it starts. :D

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          heh no worries, I tend to get similar words messed up together :D

  • kiwiburner

    It isnt necessary to look at the debris in the order you set out. You just need to inspect all types before the ruptured and sealed barrel

  • http://twitter.com/Rebcartmusic Rebcart

    This entire quest chain for nothing but 5 Commendations? I’m sorry but this isn’t worth anyone’s time. I could get 5 Commendations via the Mystic Forge with less effort, and with all this nonsense with the bugged NPCs you can’t even be sure the quest chain will even work.

  • Anon

    so what’s the point of going through this event? it only gives 5 CCCs, also it’s bugged on some server, nice guide but not sure if I should bother with it unless it gives achievements does it?

  • stuffsticks

    amazing, took Gandara all of 5 minutes to break Noll again

  • dd

    are you serious this content sucks -.- ill pass

  • Pingback: Lost Shores – Day 2 « Watching the Water Cool()

  • Driuno

    for everyone that complains of “not worth, only 5 commendation”, have you ever heard the word “lore”? Cause you know, the entire game has a Story…
    And honestly, i hope that the final phase will give a very good and unique reward, and you will can’t get it cause you didn’t complete the previous phase for “not worth spent 30 min”

    • nightrunner

      IMO, the best reward comes in form of pop culture references in storyline & cut scenes (I’m very certain Anet is fan of slasher/monster movies XD). I hv a great time laughing my ass off while doing quests, despite the frustration fr glitches

  • Arya Beth Stark

    For the Quaggan its Seaweed, sea urchin meat and a scallop … Took me an hour -.-

  • glakuns

    Canach was fixed for me about thirty minutes ago.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      thank you, it was fixed for me as well and updated the guide :D

  • nightrunner

    Seems like for Kessex Hills – Viathan Lake, you don’t need to interact with Fahd to get strange shell. I just swim along the coastline, somewhere between Heart (22) & Tradecamp waypoint, found a chest with a star above it, open it and get myself the strange shell, without participating in any event

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      thanks, i emphasized the chest location and added your image :D

  • Allanon

    To receive the Magic scroll from the Quaggan at Caledon Forest – Stormwreck Deeps give her Urchin meat followed by seeweed or vice versa.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      so you didn’t pick up Sea Scallop at all and it worked?

  • Nite Faze

    Thank you so much!

  • Striptail

    NOOOOOooooooo…… I was just about to turn in the last piece to that Hylek guy, and the clock went 21.00 CET and he disapeared! D A M N! That was boring! Been bugged for so many hours, then comes the fix, and then its….just gone :-( I’m soooo disappointed with Anet with this event. Was there a part of it that wasn’t bugged?

  • Cewan Kael

    Probably one of the funniest things I’ve seen in Guild Wars 2 thus far….

  • Earthbound_X

    All that just to get 5 Captains Council Commendations? No thanks, thanks for the guide though.

  • Chris

    can’t find Null!!!

  • Grant

    can anyone else not talk to Miyani to start part 3 ?

  • Lunabel

    yes doesn’t work for me.

  • Norlamin

    I’m also unable to talk to Miyani to start Phase 3…

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Looks like a number of people have this,it might have being removed :(

      Edit: yep it is removed, there was an official confirmation by anet.

  • http://www.facebook.com/osvaldo.landi Osvaldo Landi

    When i talk to Myanni i don’t have the option to talk about the krakas..

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      sorry Miyani investigation was a phase 1 thingie only and removed for phase 2

  • Pingback: Weekly Guild Wars 2 Post Roundup November 17th()

  • Francisco

    Miyani bugg or something i can’t ask her about karka

  • Tomarte

    Can the quests still be done or were they deactivated already?

  • Kilandra

    Finally got to do the Noll part, went to turn it all in… and nothing. Yay! Broken quest is broken. Oh well.

  • nightrunner

    Now nobody wants to play with Noll XD

  • Antitype
