GW2 Koda’s Blessing Achievement Guide
A guide to getting Koda’s Blessing Achievement and the new Koda’s Warmth Enrichment Infusion. Special thanks to SilentFisher.7015 for their help in locating some of these.
This achievement rewards 5 AP and the Koda’s Warmth Enrichment, which gives +15% karma and has a fire aura effect.
This achievement is fairly costly and not for the faint of heart as it requires quite a bit of gold. You need to make 19 Offerings to Koda and they together costs 950 Globs of Ectoplasm and 209 gold minimum. This is in addition to the 9500 Unbound Magic and 95 Fresh Winterberries you need to farm from the new Bitterfrost Map.
You will need to purchase Offering Baskets from the Unbound Magic Exchange vendor by the Sanctuary in Bitterfrost Frontier. They costs 500 Unbound Magic and 1g each. You will need to purchase 19 of them in total.
After that, you will need to combine each Offering Basket with 25 Elder Wood Logs, 50 Globs of Ectoplasm, 10 Icy Runestones, and 5 Winterberries to make an Offering to Koda. For 19 Offerings you will need
- 475 Elder Wood Logs
- 950 Globs of Ectoplasm
- 190 Icy Runestones
- 95 Winterberries
Icy Runestone can be bought from the vendor by Jormag in Frostgorge Sound when the event isn’t active. Winterberries are farmed from the NW part of the new Bitterfrost Frontier map. They can be gathered once per day per node per character so you can farm them on multiple characters to speed it up.
Double click the Offering Baskets once you have the right amount of materials in your inventory to make the Offerings to Koda.
Once you have the Offerings, go to each of the location below and double click on the item in your inventory. If you are at the right spot, the item will be consumed. Some locations like Dragon’s Stand or Frozen Maw are something you might want to do it ASAP rather than wait to do them last.
