GW2 Luminescent Shoulderguard Collections Guide
A guide to the GW2 Luminescent Shoulderguard Collections introduced with the Echoes of the Past update. This collection will reward you with the Luminescent Shoulderguard
Items from Underground Mordrems
You will need to have 4 Experimental Mordrem Extraction Device. They are sold by the Bandit Crest collector for 12 Bandit Crests each near the only waypoint in Silverwastes. Consuming the device will give you a 3 hr buff that is allow you to extract an organ from the underground Mordrem bosses. However, once you extract an organ, that buff disappears so you will need 4 of them for 4 organ parts
- You must have the 3 hr buff on you when you kill the underground Mordrems to loot the organ
Remember that underground Mordrem bosses spawn under each of the four forts once the Pact Assault Preparations Completed meta bar reaches full (~about 30-40 mins)
- Mordrem Teragriff Tendon – Indigo Cave
- Mordrem Husk Tendon – Red Rock Bastion
- Mordrem Troll Tendom – Amber Sandfall
- Mordrem Thrasher Tendon – Blue Oasis
Note that the Mordrem can drop glands and heart that are not part of the collections but can be exchanged for bandit crests
This strap can be obtained from the quartermaster at each fort if you have 3 stacks or more of perserverance buff obtained by doing events around Silverwastes. The quartmaster only appears when the fort is under pact control and he may not give you the item if the fort is under attack during a defense event.
Imbued Firefly Luminescence
Firefly Luminescence can be obtained from the dynamic event called Give Firefly Luminesence to Warden Annwyn that occurs in the Verdence area of Caledon Forest. If this event is not running, just stand by the Warden and wait.
Once you have the Firefly Luminesence, go to Silverwastes and go to any fort. Keep progressing the meta event until it is at The Breach stage and then jump into the big hole that opens in the ground.
Inside you will find Luminescent Pollen Cloud that allow you to imbue it to make the Imbued Firefly Luminescence. They only spawn after the underground champion is defeated.
