I’m really disappointed in this – I expected hints to locations just like in Mad King’s scavenger hunt. This is a bit too much random – unless hints are in Sea of Sorrows?

I definitely agree. The first two were painful to read, although the stories were strong enough to make it still worth it. This one was my least favorite story but by far the easiest and most fun to read.

Seems like you have to do all 12 on one character in order to complete this. I’d definitely done all 12, but was flagged at 10/12 until I realised that might be the problem.

nope, you must had missed one at first. i got the first 11 on my lvl 8 then i got the last one in Malcors on a level 80 toon and got the achievement and SP book thing

Thanks, I was lucky enough to get the achieve at the 1st location. The veteran asura close to it has hell of a toughness and I thought my pet would mess it up when I finally released skritt, but it went well at first try 🙂

Is it possible to do it now, whene Lions Arch is destroyed?( I can’t find any..

Hey Dulfy any idea what the deal is with the plague thats supposed to be exactly where the breachmaker is? For all I know it could be in the undermarket :/

The plagues are still in roughly same location as off this “rebuilding” LA period (May 2014). Point 10 is now underwater.

Great guide, but Point 1 is now slightly more west, and the statues has been shattered. Look for feet and a book!

it is possible to get now also all 12 statues ? maybe you can update the card ? i got 11 ( also orr ) and only 1 left in lions arch.

thanks =)

There seems to be one missing in LA since they updated the map. #5 is still in Crow’s Nest (although the tavern is in a new location) but I can’t seem to find #4.

The numbers here (nor the ones appearing in GW2’s Oficial Wiki) correspond to the achievement’s numbers. It seems 5,11,12 here corresponded to 3,9,7 on my list, respectively.

I only need 7 and 9 but the 7 and 9 on Dulfy’s map do NOT match the ones I need. How can I find out which ones I need then????

Just finished this. #4 (from GW) is actually #7 from Dulfy’s list. And #10 (from GW) is #9 here. Hope that helps someone:)
