Page 1/Page 4

These two are next to each other. There is a small hole above the tunnel just north of the Southwestern Shrine waypoint. Kill some ley-line scavengers to grab their organ and then climb up the circular structure a bit before using the #2 skill to get up.

gw2-storyteller-lyssa-16gw2-storyteller-lyssa-17gw2-storyteller-lyssa-18

Once you are on the wall, drop down on the other side until you see a ledge with some redddish plants. There is a little cave on that ledge you can run in and find the page at the end.

Use the updraft from Southeast Shrine waypoint and then get on the glass dome. Glide to the mastery point nearby and then head south. You will see a bunch of little rocks you have to jump over and past that is a drop down to a hidden ledge with the page.

Page 3

Use the updraft from Southeast Shrine waypoint and then get on the glass dome. Glide over to Watchman’s Roost and get in the updraft in the middle. This should take you high enough onto a broken wall with the page.

gw2-storyteller-melandru-4gw2-storyteller-melandru-3

Page 4

From Southeast Shrine waypoint, you want to run NE and drop down carefully. There is a hidden ledge just below the big arch. You want to aim for the corner and descend very slowly or you will miss it.

Remember that secret area with the Dwayna/Melandru pages? Yes there is one for Abaddon here too.

Use the updraft in the lava pool to get up here.

gw2-storyteller-abaddon-2gw2-storyteller-abaddon-3

Page 4/Page 5

You can glide down from the Balthazar area into this hole. This hole has both 4 and 5 so you need to interact twice to get both.

Page 8

Inside the pool of water by Abaddon’s Reliquary. You will need the buffs from each of the other reliquary to open the door that drops you down to the room below with the chests and pool of water. Beware that the system is buggy and you can lose reliquary buffs and won’t be able to get them back once the hearts are done until the daily reset. The page is invisible but swim around in the little pool until you find the interact button.

Page 11

To make this easy, grab a ley-line organ from a scavenger and use the #2 at the bottom of the scroll and just glide up as it is hard to jump to the scroll otherwise.
