GW2 Emissary Vorpp’s Field Assistant achievement guide

A guide to completing GW2 Emissary Vorpp’s Field Assistant tasks and acheivements for the Clockwork Chaos patch.

Before you can do any of the Emissary Vorpp’s achievements, you will need to head to the Crown Pavilion and participate in the story instance Closing Ceremony. At the end of that story instance, you will meet with Emissary Vorpp.

Note: Queen’s Gauntlet area is closed off until you finish Vorpp’s achievements and do the final story instance (Scarlet’s Playhouse)

Meta Achievement: Emissary Vorpp’s Field Assistant – 5 pts

  • This is a meta achievement you complete by doing the achievements below. The achievements below are unlocked sequentially and won’t all appear on your achievement window at once.

1) First Portal Invasion Responder – 1 pt

  • Location: Ascalon Settlement in Gendarran Fields.
  • Waypont: Ascalon Settlement Waypoint


2) Invasion Witness Interviewer – 1 pt

  • Go back to Ascalon Settlement and talk to this Citizen


3) Portal Invasion Closer – 1 pt

  • You will need complete 5 full invasions to get this achievement. Each full invasion lasts about 45 minutes and start every hour on the hour so it will take you 5 hrs to complete this achievement. Please consult this guide on the invasions and associated achievements.
  • For full invasions you don’t need to go through all the waves and win, you just have to participate on a map that has an invasion, when the timer (45 minutes) ends you will get credit.
  • Do not confuse this achievement with the Portal Closer achievement under Watchwork Chaos. These are two separate achievements and not completed the same way!
  • After you have participated in 5 invasions, use the Holographic Communicator and Vropp will tell you the next step.


4) Portal Component Procurer – 1 pt

  • You will need to get the following 3 components. Make sure you are in a large enough zerg so the champions spawn instead of veterans.
    • Focusing crystal from a champion Aetherblade Pirate Captain
    • Oscillating Diaphragm from Champion Twisted Nightmare
    • Translator Beacon from one of her larger portals (i..e portals that spawn champions will usually work, you will probably get this when you get the other two crystals).
  • The components look like pink crystals so make sure you don’t destroy them!


5) Teleportation Facilitator – 1 pt

  • Use the Holographic Communicator in your inventory again and Vorpp will tell you to go back to Divinity’s Reach Crown Pavilion to meet with him. He is not marked on the map for some reason but you can find him here. Talking to him will complete all the achievements in this category and reward you with a Positional Relay Beacon that you can use to access Scarlet’s Playhouse.


  • Topher

    Has anyone been able to get credit for the Portal Invasion Closer part?

    • sadpanda

      It’s not working for me, I finished the whole map invasion event- didnt work, and I also finished the smaller portal events- still didnt work :/

    • Topher

      Update, I have now been in 3 zones, 2 fails, 1 success, I got credit for the second fail only.

    • before

      3/5 at the moment. Haven’t spawned more

  • Diabolo Peperus

    3/5 too 9minutes to 4/5 in next hour will have 5/5 so will type in comments :DD

    • Me Toutch

      seems to not work like that, i had 3/5 while i only participated at 1 of it, i did a second and it stayed at 3/5

      • Diabolo Peperus

        Maybe you are looking at wrong achivment?

        • Me Toutch

          nope i’m watching at the achievement, progressing for the funhouse

  • Diabolo Peperus

    4/5 at the moment. Waiting for next invasion.

  • The Spirit Molecule

    I allways get thrown in overflow -_-

    • Flatbedotr

      Overflow is generally better though.

  • Diabolo Peperus

    5/5 now I need to get 3 components from champions.

  • Shadow

    where’s the one in frostgorge sound and fireheart rise?

  • StoneyB

    Nvm, I screwed up

  • Diabolo Peperus

    Yay Now servers are down with bug , gw2 forum too…

  • Mar Aphaek

    Three Components needed to build the portal:

    focusing crystal from an Aetherblade Captain
    oscillating diaphram from a Twisted Nightmare
    translocator beacon from one of her [Scarlet] larger portals

    • Diabolo Peperus

      larger portals? how can i find em?

      • Mar Aphaek

        no idea. don’t know what that means =(

        • I will find out in abit

          • Mar Aphaek

            i have 2/3 now.

            the smaller portals seem to be what the molten shamans come out of. the others are “larger” portals. i got my 2/3 from a normal minion portal and the nightmare of course

      • Ghisteslohm

        If you look up in the sky there are often big portals instead of the smaller ones which are at every portal event.
        I got mine from one where Scarlets Robos attacked.

        But if you need it just do the Invasion-Events, you will probably get it very fast.

  • Michele

    There is an achievement called “Emissary Vorpp’s Field Assistant” that requires scans of 5 portals. I don’t understand how to do this. I attended one of Scarlet’s invasions for the full time and got 3/5 on this. Despite Vorpp saying the scan is automatic, I don’t understand specifically we need to do.

  • Diabolo Peperus

    Btw I made all achivments = Scarlet Funhouse is 5 players dungeon.

    • It is not, it can be soloed.

  • Randomguy111

    This is broken.. missed 2 credits because of a glitch

  • Wesley

    I’ve looted all parts already but I trashed the first two because the components have no description and they really look like heart quest/event trash items. Dulfy, do you know if you can reloot them or get them back in some way?

    • michele

      Are there 5 parts? Is this about the “scan” achievement? I just want to cry at this point.

      • Michele

        Oh, I’m not at this point yet.

    • anatema

      happend to me as well. but even with the first two crystals not in my inventory any more, the achievement for getting them was completed and the ‘lil guy let me complete the quest and get the positional relay beacon.

  • Ianpact

    “Make sure you are in a large enough zerg”

    So content is now created with the idea of zerging? /siiiiiiiiiiigggghhhhh

    • Flatbedotr

      you had to zerk for the legendaries in pavilion

    • Murth

      I had champions spawn with only 6 ppl…

    • The Spirit Molecule

      Still better than that Liadri disaster they made. That was utter shite.

  • Gen

    Just wanted to point out that if you didn’t start the quest line with vorpp, you will have to do ANOTHER 5 invasions. The ones you did before getting to that point don’t count. Which is bs. Either that, or I’m bugged.

    • gaaaal

      anet bunch of fuckers, attending the invasion and still not getting points from it, I got the item and started the qeust

  • Neyo

    Can you delete the 3 components after you get the Positional Relay Beacon, or will you still need them?

    • Ya you can delete them

  • Murth

    Didnt get the crystal from the captain but still got the achievemnt done :p

  • Nyv

    Cant seem to get the archivement from the asura done…4/5 Invasions and not counting anymore. Made around 10 now, different maps…but nothing. Its just not updating anymore. Any Ideas?

  • Ares Zax

    Once a character completes Vorpp’s mission, is the Pavilion unlocked for all your characters on your account? Or does every single character have to complete it? (That’s just crazy if it is!)

    • Just tried it, it is unlocked for all characters

  • mohrad

    I dont get it. I am at phase where i need 5 Invasions, and I’ve done 8 since that!
    Yet still stuck at the same msg from the Communicator :/

  • Enkinan

    So I have to do the entire achievement to get back in to the gauntlet to buy my hammer skin? Not cool if true

    • Yes

      • Gyler

        You could also just find a group to do the funhouse, and once completed, you are able to enter the now desserted pavilion.

        • McKalister

          True, I hadn’t finished the story line yet but joined someone else and did the funhouse and could go in the pavilion (:

  • Piteous

    5 hours for 1 pt? wow

    • Well these achievements are not really about points, it is more about getting access to scarlet’s playhouse and return to crown pavilion

  • The Spirit Molecule

    I loved scarlet’s playhouse. Got the achievement. Not too hard, not too easy. This was super fun ^_^

  • Skrupulat

    I’ve got Oscillating Diaphragm on 1 character and Focusing crystal on another one, third didn’t drop but I’ve got achievement Portal Component Procurer so WTF? How I get to the Crown Pavilon?

    • Did you head back to DR to talk to Vorpp?

  • Ayadori

    I finished the Funhouse in a party, while I was in the middle of my own Vorpp chain and now I cannot enter the instance again with Vorpp as it immediately pushes me to the old Crown Pavilion. How can I complete the personal chain now?

    • Which step of Vorpp’s chain are you on? To complete Vorpp’s chain you do not actually need to enter the playhouse as the chain completes before you enter it

      • Chris

        thanks Dulfy i figured it out, *facepalm

  • Chris

    I got all 3 crystals, and i need to find Vorrp at DR, but he is nowhere to be found and i cant get into Crown Pavilion. Any ideas?

    • Did you check the map & pics I provided under 5? He should be there

    • Angus xD

      OMG XDDD

    • Ivy

      I have the same Problem

    • Emeena

      Had the hugest problem finding him. Ran around DR for a good while circling the pavilion. He’s near the Crown Pavillion Waypoint. Just head down the stairs and look right next to the biggish glowing thing. The reason I couldn’t find him was there was a LOT of people crowded around, and being an asura he’s… well… short. But he IS there near the portal. Look out for that “Talk [F]” queue.

  • Scarlet

    I have the Position Relay Beacon, how do I get to the playhouse instance? Sry if it is obvious but I can’t click on the Beacon etc.

    • Talk to Vorpp, there is a portal behind him that opens up and you can enter the instance.

  • Murth

    Can you redo the playhouse if you alrdy completed it?

  • Jolith

    Hi! I made the closing ceremony with one char, low level and he got the item to call vorrp and it is character bound. Can you still make the above without the item, and if I want to get the item with my level 80?

    • pedro

      yes you can

  • Malkolm

    I’m stuck at 4/5 Invasions. Played fulltime on 9 Invasions on 7 different maps, but the count doesnt raise.
    On the other hand the achievement for 7/13 different maps also doenst count up. So maybe Anet implemented a bug?
    Any other who experience this?

    • Murth

      You can’t do 13 invasions on the same map to get the achievements, you need to do a full invasion on all of the 13 maps. That’s why it’s stuck at 7/13 for you (because you only did 7 different invasions). And for the 4/5, is it possible that you alrdy did invasions before talking to Vorpp? If so the next invasion (on a map that’s not 1 of the 4) will grant you 5/5.

  • Wojtek

    And what if I destroyed the crystals :<? Is it lost forever?

    • Wojtek

      Ok I discovered. you can simply go to him and get achievement even if you destroyed the crystals ;)!

  • Sally

    Not sure if it’s any help to those who can’t get the 5/5 for vorpp, but I noticed that, for me, it only counted the invasions I did on my home server. When I guested to other servers, it didn’t count for his achievement, but it counted for the “do-an-invasion-on-13-maps” achievement.

    • Uh I did most of it guesting and they all counted.

  • Laurie

    I have not been able to get the crystals. been playing this for 5 days. don’t understand what the problem is. Other people have said they just appear in their inventory. Is there any other way to get the crystals?

  • Laurie

    I have been in at least 4 invasions today from beginning to end and they have not shown up on acheivements or as part of the vvorp completion for 5. Do you have to be part of a group for it to count?
    Thanks for all the work you do Dulfy!!!

    • Nope you don’t, just have to be at the zone when the invasion finish. Not sure why you didn’t get credit for them.

    • Murth

      You need to talk to Vorpp firsst before they can count?

  • Canyoupeopleread?

    Just to clarify, you WILL NOT. Get progress towards closing portals if you have not talked to him. You WILL NOT get crystals unless you have gotten all 5 invasions AFTER talking to him

    • Jenna

      Also of note that the 5 completions may not actually count toward Closer. Seems random which ones do/don’t. (I’ve had failures count and successes count variably.)

  • Dobby

    I am sad. I destroyed crystals for room in my inventory and will have to collect again.

  • Harnace

    Portal Invasion Closer bugged for anyone else? Stuck on 4/5 …

  • Kuro Inu

    I did not get the Positional Relay Beacon after collecting all 3 items. I have finished every achievement but had no space at this moment. if I speak with vorrp again he just opens the portal again. can I destroy the 3 items?

    • Yes

      • Kuro Inu


  • Imago

    I destroyed all 3 of my crystals. Is it possible to go out and get them again? I know I know, I should have came here first to read Duffy’s guide. 😛
    I’ve been trying for a while with no luck. :/

    • Did you get the achievement* for ** Portal Component Procurer? If so you can just talk to Vorpp at the location indicated by step 5. *

      • Imago

        I should have checked that location first. When I didn’t see him in his original location I thought it was because I destroyed the crystals.

        Thank you Duffy!

    • If all of your maps and portals are done, find someone who can get in and ask them to invite you.

      It’s the only way I can get in.

  • Alexander Guranti

    Hiho all 😉 is the portal achievement still bugged ? i destroyed one crystal too, but Vorpp says i have to meet him in DR.When im talking to him nothing happens

    • Have someone invite you into the playhouse – it’s the only way I can get into it, even now.

  • Ty King

    Don’t talk to the Vorpp by the waypoint. Go to the spot where it’s marked above. The Vorpp at the waypoint is a phantom. And actually, I saw two Vorrps there.

  • I have all 13 maps, all portals are closed why can’t I get into scarlet’s playhouse? I have ONLY the four to do in the Playhouse.

    What did I miss???

    • Did you do the Emissary Vorpp stuff?

      • So many times that I thought I was going nuts.

        I finally had to be invited into the Playhouse – since it still to this moment doesn’t show for me – wherever it is…

        I”ve been in once, but I have no idea how to get back in – and that last map? After watching the same map four times a day – finally one cycled in that wasn’t the “same”.

        The event was terribly directed.

  • Yenan

    Hi, if I participate invasions with my alt (that doesn’t have comunicator – its soulbound to my main char) would I still get achievments for Vorpp?

    • wheniwasyoung

      Yes, but you’ll want to get another communicator from vorp (located near crown pav entrance) for last stage
