5. Garden of the Gods Page 5

On the cliffs just to the east of Temple of Kormir. Need springer with high vault to get up on those cliffs or glide to here from Page 4. If high vaulting, I recommend going from the back of the temple as there is an easier cliff to climb on.

Inside Glint’s Legacy area, pretty tricky to get to so if you don’t know how to get up there, watch the video. Requires springer with high vault.

Completing this achievement gives you 3 AP and 1 Mastery Point. Special thanks to Bandicootz for the locations.

Note: You will need the griffon mount to reach two of the pages (Page  5 and 7).

  5. Palawa Joko I Page 05 – 5:14
  6. Palawa Joko I Page 06 – 7:21
  7. Palawa Joko I Page 07 – 8:55


1. Palawa Joko I Page 01

Found right below the Vehjin Palace. There is a small ring structure.


2. Palawa Joko I Page 02

If you have the Spearmarshal’s Plea from doing the griffon quest line, you can port pretty close to the page.


3. Palawa Joko I Page 03

Go to the Boneyard POI in the Necropolis and then take any of the sand portals inside the bone yard. After you go through the portal, take a look to your left and you will find the page.


4. Palawa Joko I Page 04

Near the Market Ruins waypoint on top of a structure with some trees.


5. Palawa Joko I Page 05

Unfortunately you need a griffon to reach this one. You have to get up on this higher dome first and then griffon your way across to the top of the big red dome. You should reach the top of the dome just barely with the griffon.


6. Palawa Joko I Page 06

To reach this page, you also need to climb up on the higher rock near and then glide/griffon across. Luckily you don’t need to use the griffon for this one and glider will do just fine.


7. Palawa Joko I Page 07

You also need a griffon for this page. Go straight from Market Ruins waypoint and jump up to King Joko’s Sky Garden POI. Then use your griffon to fly to the dome nearby that has the sand-worn page.

Side note: the book you get for the reward for this achievement (and for each zone) is not yet enabled, so don’t throw it away yet!

I found Book of Vlast page 5 near the large chest guarded by a Veteran Owl Griffon on the building south above Derelict Delve WP.

I am doing the Desolation Lost Lore Achievement right now. If you need the locations, please let me know how I can send you some pictures.

I have it, but unfortunately I don’t recall where I got it from. Either the delves or a branded area, but that might not be helpful. I could also be wrong about even that much. Sorry. 🙁

Page 4 of Vlast is just south of the “sheltered tree” from the griffon egg collection. Northwest where there’s a mastery and a vista right by each other. There’s a campfire with two veteran ogres by it. The page is sitting by the fire.

Shoot. I didn’t realize page 3 wasn’t in the guide yet. All I can add is that I found it either escorting Second Spear Nayrim or while going to the griffon eggs. That narrows the map a little.

Here’s pages 5-7 for Lost Lore of the Desolation. I don’t remember pages 1-4. I wasn’t paying attention when I found them.

Page 5. West of Joko’s Domain Waypoint and east of Lone-Tree Hill Vista. On top of the pillar near the eastern side cliff.

Page 6. Southeast of Wayward Watch in the cliffs with scarabs.

Page 7. Located in the cliffs above the Jackal portal from Springer’s Ladder. Easiest way there is to travel east from Village of Purity.

Feel free to reply with pages 1-4. 🙂

Thx bud, Gonna try to add some more info if you haven’t found the rest yet. #6’s closest waypoint is [&BMEKAAA=] Lair of the Forgotten.

Pages 1-4, Desolation. Enjoy

I believe that top picture (first and second pictures) by [&BNwKAAA=] (Bonestrand Waypoint) is #3, because I had already had that one.

Images 3 and 4 are page #1. I springered nw up from The Darklands Waypoint [&BKMKAAA=], rode nw, and griffon’d the rest of the way. Pretty simple.

Images 5 and 6 are page #4. From Sand Jackal Run Waypoint [&BHcKAAA=], Jackal through the first portal nw, jackal across breach, and through another portal. Turn around, and backtrack across wooden bridges, then griffon across.

And the last two images are page #2. Simple ride from The Darklands Waypoint [&BKMKAAA=] east, then jump down and glide to the yellow outcropping below.

I will go there and look. It’s either on the ground at the back of a cave or behind a jackal portal.

I found it, you use any portal and brings you to the page, will post later. Thanks again!

Thnx for additional info, I just posted pictures cos I am working on Vabbi ones, so I didn’t have a time for it 🙂

I finished all the maps and the “use” on the books still says that the content is currently disabled. 🙁

Vabbi #7 does NOT require Griffon.

Springer up onto statue’s boot, dismount then jump and speed fly to dome.

Vabbi #5 does NOT require Griffon.

Springer up from the ledge, that accesses the Vista, to a “sticking point” on the Dome. Springer to top of dome.

Finding the proper spot took about 15 mins. (It’s left of where you would land flying from the dome with
the spire)
