GW2 Luminescent Coat and Headgear Collections Guide
GW2 Luminescent Coat and Headgear Collections Guide for Point of No Return release.
You need to acquire a Teragriff Kidney, Husk Kidney, Troll Kidney, and Thrasher Kidney for the collection. To acquire them, you need to purchase some Experimental Mordrem Extraction Device for 12 Bandit Crests each from the Bandit Crests vendor in Camp Resolve. Use them before you kill champions to acquire the organ parts once the champions die. There is also a debuff that now prevent you from tagging multiple Mordrem champions at the same time to get multiple organ drops.
There are now two sets of champions you can kill for the organ parts. The first set is the usual champions that pops up during the Breach in their underground locations
The second set are the 3 Vinewrath champions that pops up after the Breach during the Vinewrath event.
- Beekeeper (bottom lane) is a troll and will drop troll organ parts
- Mangler (middle lane) is a thrasher and drop thrasher organ parts
- Dark Wing (top lane) is a Teragriff and will drop Teragriff organ parts
Unfortunately with chance to get Fang, Tendon, Bladder, Spleen, Eye, and Kidneys from these Mordrem creatures it can be a bit frustrating to get the right organ. Luckily you can turn in the all the organ parts to the Cryptobotanist that roams around the map. Here is an updated map and schedule provided by reddit user Oaksfromacorns. Remember to turn in to the Cryptobotanist the part that he likes the most based on his location for the most bandit badges.
Cryptobotanist Schedule (note that the time is in server time, which is UTC). You can go into your ingame options and set ingame clock to server time or just know that EST is UTC –5 and PST is UTC –8.

Get 3 stacks of Perseverance buff from doing events in Silverwastesand then talk to the Quartermaster inside any of the 4 fortress when it is not under attack during Pact Assault Preparations and select the option “I am here to prove my perseverance”.
You can only get a maximum of 5 stacks of Perseverance buff and there are two items to get for chest and helm collections (berlt and chinstrap) so you need to go to the quartermaster at 5 stacks, get one of them items and then do one more event to get back to 3 stacks and revisit the quartermaster
Grab a Large Skull (crafting mat) from your bank or buy it from the TP. Use it on the Luminescent Pollen Cloud that spawns ithe near the underground Mordrem champion after they are defeated during The Breach to turn it into an Imbued Skull.
Make sure you also grab the Dragonfly wings for the headpiece so you can do both in one go.
You will need to complete all the story journal achievements for Point of No Return to get this ascended accessory. Here is a guide to those achievements.
You get one Carapace Chest for doing the Vinewrath Vanquisher achievement (i.e. killing Vinewrath the first time). If you are unsure how that event works check out this guide. Addition chestpieces are obtained as random drops from the big chest that spawns when Vinewrath is successfully defeated.
Depending on your luck with the chests it may take you as much as 20 Vinewrath kills to get all 3 chestpieces.
You need to acquire a Teragriff Eye, Husk Eye, Troll Eye, and Thrasher Eye for the collection. This is pretty much identical to the Mordrem Kidney section for the Luminescent Coat so refer to that part of the guide.
Identical to the Luminescent Belt section for Coat.
Radiant Dragonfly Wings
You first need to purchase Dragonfly-Wing Earrings from Cook Huelic for 140 karma near Rana Landing Complex Waypoint in Metrica Province.
Next you need to visit the Luminescent Pollen Cloud that spawns near the underground Mordrem champion during the Breach after it is defeated and convert it to a Radiant Dragonfly Wing.
Purchased from the Bandit Crest collector for 1000 Bandit Badges and 10 gold in Camp Resolve. You may need to complete the Point of No Return story (or achievements) for this to show up on the vendor.
You get helms from completing the Point of No Return story. You can use level 80 alts to redo the story for additional helm pieces. If you have a ton of bandit badges or don’t have level 80 alts you can buy them from the Bandit Crest collector for 1000 badges and 1 gold each.
