A guide to all 30 Rubble Piles you need to locate for the Memories in Your Hand Escape from Lion’s Arch Living World achievement. They seems to reset around daily reset.
The Rubble Piles appear to reset at daily reset and are account bound (i.e. only grab once per account). You only need 30 Rubble Piles for the achievement but all 40 are listed here and you need to gather them daily if you want to 250 Found Heirloom rewards (Halo and Devil Horn, see bottom of page)

12. Near the water in a semi cave like structure
13. Next to a bunch of mobs by the beach

27. Inside the cave but to the right of the rocks that mark start of the jumping puzzle
28. Go up the rocks near the jumping puzzle exit and you will find it in a corner
29. At the end of a dead end
30. Go up the stony ramp next to 29 and follow it until you see a wooden barricade with a broken asuran gate nearby
31. On top of a rock. To get to this one, you have to take a convoluted path up a wooden ramp (follow the arrows).
32. Exact same path you took in 31, except you are going to a different hill a bit more to the south
33. Inside Hooligan’s Route/cavern. Extremely hard to reach due to the high density of elites/veterans with a high respawn rate. However, there is an easier way by running via the left side of the cave, dodging whatever enemies that you come across. Near the back of cave you can climb up the slope in screenshot #2 to and jump across the gap (thanks BrownieC for the tip).
34. Hidden in a cave
35. Inside Lost Grotto accessed via the sewers (take a right after entering the sewers)
36. Go up east from Canal Ward waypoint and then jump down on the wooden plank leading to a nearby structure
37. Not far from the Postern Ward Waypoint
38. Behind the bottom most waterfall (the one that goes down to the water level) is a cave you can enter. If you find a wall behind the waterfall, then you need to jump down to the waterfall below.
39. In the Hooligan’s Route/cavern that is home to #33, if you go to the NE corner you can find a tiny cave entrance in the water. Go through the tiny gap submerged in the water to find find a cave that contains Rubble Pile 39.
40. From Rubble Pile #17, take a left and you will find a gap in the wall that allow you to climb up (watch out for a group of patrolling Aetherblades). If you keep following this path, it will take you to the vista/diving board. Near the diving board is a wooden ramp leading down. About half way down the ramp you will find a ledge on the wall you can follow which will take you to a cave behind the waterfall that houses the final rubble pile.
Found Heirloom Rewards
At the refugee camps in Bloodtide Coast/Lornar’s Pass/Gendarran Fields are vendors that will exchange 250 Found Heirlooms and 10 gold for Selfless potions (Halo effect) and Thoughtless potions (Devil horn effect).It will take you a couple daily resets to get 250 needed but you also get them from bags that are given out when you reach each new tier of citizens rescued.
- Found Heirllooms can also be obtained from bags that are rewarded at various tiers for # of citizens rescued as well as very rare drops from Alliance Supply Bags (10 from ~500 bags) that you get from killing mobs and doing events inside Lion’s Arch
- These are unlimited use, and can be used in combat (it is like the food/combat potions except they do not conflict with the food/potion slots and have their own slot). No cooldown on its use.
