1. Group event – Deal with invading karka and collect samples for Research Assistant Bardus
One time event near the lighthouse in Lion’s Arch that began on 12:00 PST and lasted ~ 30 minutes.
2. Investigation by Inspector Ellen Kiel (reward: Jug of Karma)
Inspector Ellen Kiel – Lion’s Arch Grand Piazza
Go to Lion’s Arch Grand Piazza and talk to Inspector Ellen Kiel,
Now head to the Lion’s Arch beach area (Moran Memorial) just north of the lighthouse, inspect the Jetsam, Broken Cargo Container, and Ruptured Cargo Barrel in that order. Then you take a crowbar and open the Sealed Cargo Barrel
You can pick up this flower from the bag inside the barrel and return it to her.
Blingg –west of Fort Mariner
Go back to Inspector Ellen, she will tell you to see Blingg in Fort Marriner.
You can find Blingg near the Consortium Portal. Talking to him will lead you to Subdirector Noll
He will mail you something in the mail
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)
Canach – Kessex Hills (Wizard’s Clef, west of Garenhoff)
Canach is upstairs in this house located on the SE corner of Kessex Hills just west of Garenhoff. There is an event here to defeat him after you talk to him. If he was defeated recently, you will need to wait a bit to talk to him.
After you defeat Canach, you will get a sworn statement in the mail from Canach, which includes a map of Southsun Cove.
Inspector Ellen Kiel – Lion’s Arch Grand Piazza
Once you have all the items, go back to Inspector Ellen Kiel and she will reward you with a Jug of Karma
3. Investigation by Miyani (More Information and Our thanks)
Miyani – Lion’s Arch Mystic Forge
Talk to Miyani and ask about the karka creatures and she will let you talk to Zommoros.
Zommoros will tell you to find answers in Caledon Forest, Metrica Province and Kessex Hills. Once you zone out of Lion’s Arch she Miyani will also send you a letter with all the locations.
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.
If she is already rescued, she will be a bit east of that location.
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.
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.
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)
