GW2 Scrap of Paper Bloodstone Fen Achievement Guide

A guide for collecting all the scrap of paper for the various notebook/diary/memoir achievements in Bloodstone Fen.

There are hidden achievements in Bloodstone Fen that require you to collect pieces of a notebook/diary/memoir that appear as Scraps of Paper in the map. There are three achievements in total, each for a different book but the Scraps of Paper appears identical for all 3 books.

Once you find all 3 Journals, you will earn the Conspiracy of Dunces achievement, which will grant you a Bloodstone Dust and Dragonite Ore consumer. This item can be used 6 times a day to consume 150 Bloodstone Dust and Dragonite Ore per day, giving you in return green and trash items you can sell/salvage for mats.

If you have Ley Line gliding, you can get this quick by using the ley line right outside Zealot’s Overlook Waypoint as it lead straight to the island with the paper. Otherwise you will need to take the long route by taking the updrafts along the way to the Mastery Insight for Fragmented Wastes and then take the updraft near the diving goggles to shoot yourself high enough to reach this island.

  • Volt

    Anyone found how to get Reversal of Fortune yet?

    • Kali

      YES! There’s blue circles that spawn during the fight and spread out. Sit in them to get teleported upwards, then glide and shoot Justicar from the air.

  • Andreanah

    anyone knows how to do grief counseling achievement?

    • MattStriker

      Yeah. Down in the jungley canyon area where the ghosts spawn at night, there’s an event where you need to escort one ghost to kill some White Mantle. She’s the one you need. After the event completes, she realizes things are kinda weird and asks you if she’s a ghost. That’s where you use the /yes emote.

  • wQnxy

    This one is not working how guide shows. I am missing 2/13/15 from 3rd books and noone of the pages was found at lsited places.
    Each page adds random number to the achievement :<

    • Pretty sure that is not the case, each page has a specific location. You might have the numbers shifted? I dunno. Multiple people tested it and it works.

      • wQnxy

        Cant do it atm, since i was running all the places from the listed above to get missing pages =]

        • MrHomunkulus

          Worked perfectly fine for me but i was only missing 2 pages and found them where the Guide showed them.

  • Doghouse

    Grand Savant #7: If you’re too low to reach the scrap, back up the slope east of the Temple of Renewal POI there’s a bouncing mushroom. Engage your glider at the top of the bounce and then push forward, steer past the right side of the rock in directly in front of you and land on the rock with the scrap.

  • Shaggy

    man i love stuff like this. tying the lore into this sort of minigame (as opposed to arbitrary masks and coins before it) and telling us what the white mantle was up to, and how they reacted to the dragons’ deaths? i love it. i might actually go through the effort to find them all.

  • axyd

    I got most of them but just running around in circles, but some are well hidden.
    I love you…

  • I started out thinking that this was a one-scrap-per-location, but as I did it more, I ended up under the impression that they spawned randomly over time as I was sure I picked up more scraps in places I had checked before. Interesting to know that this was wrong. I guess my perception was just rubbish lol

  • Alot

    This will probably be the first dulfy guide I don’t use. I’m going to be spending so much time on this map I’ll probably find all the pieces without it -.-

    Though I must say, it is a Conspiracy of Dunces indeed. I always wondered why the exalted said they were into preserving Tyria as opposed to just saying they liked killing dragons. While the Anet team has stated that the blood stones were used to hide magic from the dragons (and yes, arguing with Anet announcements makes one feel silly), these notes leave me with the impression that the blood stones weren’t to hide magic from the dragons but instead to prevent too much magic from being released into Tyria each time the elder dragons were slain.

    The placards around Tarir say how the last time the elder dragon’s rose, the old races didn’t have enough resources around to make new blood stones – and they were freaking out about it. It always seemed odd to me that they needed bloodstones when the dragons are perfectly killable when understood (which the old races did). Then we see what happens when multiple elder dragons die. The magic released from 2 elder dragons caused a magical overload. The leylines came to life, magical constructs such as golems have started malfunctioning and an existing blood stone literally burst trying to contain the ambient magic.

    I’m left with the impression that Tyria in it’s natural state has so much magic that it would be inhospitable to small life (or at the least very unfriendly). The elder dragons contain the bulk of the magic by devouring it and release the magic when killed. When all the dragons are dead I think there are supposed to be blood stones to house the majority of the magic, slowly releasing it back into the world till such a time that the elder dragons rise to safely nom it again. So after Primordius is slain, I suggest wearing grounded boots.

  • Answerer

    Whelp, this is far as I came without a guide,
    I said I wouldn’t use the guide, but after scouring the map in full, three times, I think I’ve found all I can find without slapping myself on the head going ‘OOH, THERE IT WAS!’

  • NeHoMaR

    It’s save to delete the 6 books I have in my inventory after getting the final item?

    • Yes you can delete the incomplete ones

      • Bierp

        What about the completed ones?

  • aciddur

    I only need 1 more #86 but it’s not there where the guide says it is… (hm)
    btw: thanks the guide, except this one it’s very usefull 🙂

    • Sam

      there are two #86 papers in two different locations:
      1. Grand Savant Valis the Learned’s Research Journal (Incomplete).
      2. Justiciar Bauer’s Memoirs (Incomplete)

  • thomasjulienalain

    Is there a reason why i’m stuck after completing the first book ? I can’t find any other scrap of paper.

  • Raezzor Daze

    Anyone else notice locations or required pages for certain books changing? All 3 of my books have some different pages that are required, and not all the locations had the pages listed though they did have some page. Just wondering what’s going on.

    • Odel

      I found that 42 Phoenix was listed as 45 Phoenix, 1325 AE

  • Ander Shultis

    Hey Dulfy. Not to be “That guy” but in the Apprentice Kasandra’s Notebook locations, the guide says 29 Phoenix, 1325 AE and should be 26 Phoenix, 1325 AE. Also, 45 Phoenix, 1325 AE should be 42 Phoenix, 1325 AE.

  • AkiNoReiki

    86 Zephyr is incorrect location. It’s near the colliseum entrance… This video shows the correct location:

  • 1stHobanO

    NUMBER 60 scion is a typo…it is number 63scion 1325ae in the achievement…plz fix and thank you
