Defector Protector– 3 AP

There is an event that starts at Arid Gladefields where Jingo asks for your help in escorting Defectors to the camp up north. By default Jingo only comes with 2 Defectors. To get 10 Defectors, you need to talk to Restless Exiles in the camp before staring the Jingo event and pick the option to let them leave with Jingo. You can check Jingo’s buffbar to see how many defectors are leaving with her. Once that number reaches 10, you can talk to Jingo and start the event.

If you done this event successfully and escorted all 10 defectors without any of them dying, you will get this achievement.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-6gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-48gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-7

Flowers for Jingo – 5 AP

Talk to Jingo in Arid Gladefields. Pick the option, I have courage, for I travel in shadow,  and she will talk to you about her son. Keep going until you get the credit for the first step in the achievement.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-72gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-71

Talk to her son Wazzir next up on the road and pick the option I met her. She’s brave, to put herself in harm’s way for your people and then She asked me to give you her love. She just wants to know you’re safe. This will give you another tick of the achievement.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-73gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-74

Go back to Jingo and says you have met her son Wazzir. Pick the option How can I help your family and she will tell you to come with her next time she is escorting defectors to the camp up north. Basically do her escort event and at the end event she will run up to Wazzir and the two of them will talk. Be there for the achievement tick.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-75gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-76

Go back to Jingo again and says you heard her talking to Wazzir about his father, and Jingo will tell you to look for a grave at Exile’s Rest. Go to Exile’s Rest and look for Iweh’s grave. Pay respects for the next tick of the achievement. Also pick the option to Look Closer and it will say some plantings were torn up here recently.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-78gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-77

Go back to Jingo, tell her about the missing flowers. Then go back to the gravesite. Now look north for an Awakened Exile pathing around. He doesn’t stay in one spot and roams around so it may take a bit to find him.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-79gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-80

Defeat the Awakened Exile, talk to him for the next tick of the achievement. Talk to him again about giving flowers to Jingo.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-89gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-88

Frequent Forgotten Teleporter – 3 AP

For this achievement you have to locate all 7 Forgotten teleports. How they work is that when you stand on them, a memory sequence starts and each stone lit up in a certain order. Once the sequence is finished, you have to repeat the order by interacting with the stone in the same order to activate the teleporter. Go though the teleporter for the achievement credit.

Special thanks to mypinkbunny for locating these teleporters.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-9gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-8gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-10

Augury Rock

Only accessible when the meta event The Path to Ascension progresses to the stage where you need to use the teleporter and defeat Branded Josso Essher. Unlike other teleporters, you don’t need to do a memory game for this one and can access it right away.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-23gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-22

Vulture Drifts Westbound/Eastbound

This is a pair of teleporters that teleport you to each other.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-11gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-12

Ustulate Barrens South/Northbound

This is another pair of teleporters that teleport you to each other.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-13gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-14

Whispering Grotto

This forgotten teleporter is deep inside a cave occupied by corsairs. The cave entrance is marked on the map. Teleport is at the end of the cave.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-16gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-18gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-17

The Quickmire

This teleport is also in a cave with the entrance being the bones of a dragon head.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-19gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-20gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-21

Race to the Finish: Elon Riverlands – 1 AP

Race starts just south of Olishar’s Oasis Camp waypoint. Should be easier to get top 3 places due to lack of players participating in these races.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-69

Augury Rock Achievements

The meta event associated with Augury Rock has a number of achievements so it is best to list them all in their individual section here.

The meta starts at Angury’s Shadow Waypoint with Follower Kaidenna.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-24gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-25

Help Kaidenna acquire Forgotten Magic –> (Stop the Branded attacking the camp) –> Help Kaidenna bring Forgotten magics to the Augury teleporter –> Defeat Branded Josso Essher in the Ascension Chamber –> Augury Rock Opens –> Augury Rock Closes –> Disperse the wild magic that escaped from Augury Rock –> Crazed doppelganger

Blood and Sand – 2 AP

Mazomba is an elite shark during the escort event Help Kaidenna bring Forgotten magics to the Augury teleporter. It spawns on the3 location marked on the map when Kaidenna is near the area and has fairly low HP so it can die pretty fast if you have a large number of players escorting her.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-27gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-26

Augury Ascended – 5 AP

For this achievement you have climb to the top of Augury Rock which is pretty easy since you will do it anyways for Flameseeker Prophecies as some of the later verses spawns Forgotten Lights that are on the same platform as the one needed for the achievement. There is a lost chest and some djinns up here.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-70

Flameseeker Prophecies – 10 AP

For this achievement you have to decrypt and read the verses of Flameseeker Prophecies within Augury Rock. This is only doable when Augury Rock is open. How this works is that each time you interact with a verse, it sends out four Forgotten Lights out that you can to find within 3 minutes and return to the verse to decrypt it. There are 15 verses but three scrolls so you have to do this for each verse three times to get the completion for scroll 1, 2, and 3 for each verse (however, you can only do scroll 2 verses after you have done entire scroll 1 etc).

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-44gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-4gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-5

  • Verse 1-9 – Found on the ground floor
  • Verse 10-15 – Found on the climb up, there is a cave opening above the ghost cave, take a right turn and it will lead you to the top.
  • Lost Verse – This is just doing verse 15 the third time.

it takes a while to read all the verses and Augury Rock stay open only for 20 minutes so this can be an annoying achievement that takes multiple tries to complete.

Ghostly Trio – 3 AP

This is an encounter that spawns immediately after Augury Rock is closed due to branded energy barrier (spawns same time as the Disperse the wild magic that escaped from Augury Rock event). Three ghostly heroes will depart from the entrance of Augury Rock and take a very long journey across Elon Riverlands to Throne of Pellentia hero challenge in the SW corner of the map. Along the way, they will drop Visages of Pellentia in order from 1 to 10. You must collect all 10 of these visages in order by following the three heroes all the way from Augury Rock (if you are late to the encounter you can still do it by catching up and collecting all the visages along the way). Once you have collected all 10 visages, you can speak with Turai Ossa at the hero challenge and obtain the Ghostly Trio achievement.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-28gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-32gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-30

Doppel Dropper – 10 AP

After Dispersing the wild magic that escaped from Augury Rock, there will be an event where a crazed doppelganger is chasing a random player in the map. The dopperganger will clone the player’s appearance and abilities and you have to defeat it. Completing this final step of the meta event will grant you this 10 AP achievement.

This event can happen anywhere in the map, so just look or a red event circle on the map.

Imposter Syndrome – 5 AP

If you are the lucky player picked to be the legendary doppelganger, you can get this achievement for defeating yourself. Only works if you get cloned as the legendary doppelganger, elites and other kinds of doppelgangers don’t count.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-87

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-94gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-95

Elon Riverlands Griffon Expert – 3 AP

  • Silver = 1 AP, 1 Gold = 2 AP

The expert courses are usually fairly easy and lenient on time to get gold.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-91gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-90

Elon Riverlands Griffon Master – 5 AP

  • Silver = 2 AP, Gold = 3 AP

This master course is slightly more difficult due to the tendency to hit trees along the way and the last stretch requires some fast maneuvering.

gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-93gw2-elon-riverlands-achievement-guide-92

  • Thanathos

    There’s also the hidden achievement “Imposter Syndrome”. You get it if you kill yourself during the doppelganger event, however only the legendary version counts. So it’s pretty random / hard to get.

    • Thanks I will get it added to the list

    • Darkye Rhiadra

      That is one horribly bad designed achievement, which will probably take ages to get. And only because of rng, not like a raid/fractal cm achievement for example, which is HARD to get. This one is just stupid.

      Sigh…

    • Razyiel

      Lucky me, that I got picked as a Doppelganger on my first playthrough just a second after i entered the map for the first time xD

    • Imposter

      I just got the Imposter Syndrome achievement but it was not my Doppelgaenger. So it its possible to get during the fight (from elites?). Or maybe they changed it.

  • DD

    Where are the other theleporters for “Frequent Forgotten Teleporter” achi? Not found yet?

    • What do you mean? it is all there

      • DD

        I see only 3 images of 3 teleporters while the achi counts 7, am I missing something?

        • I am not sure what you are seeing, can you post an image? Two sets of teleporters are pairs, so once you go through one you can use the teleporter again to return to where you were.

          • DD

            https://imgur.com/a/pRahC
            In that screen there are 3 images (which, if 2 are pairs are 2*2+1=5 so 2 missing teleporters) and since there’s not a minimap in those 3 images I can’t locate them.
            Sorry for the bad editing of the photo, I never did it so I used paint xD

      • DD

        Also I can’t understand the location of the 3 ones I see in the images.
        (Sorry to bother)

      • someone

        Well the screenshots do not include any minimap or map. So they are not useful at all. I know they do not help me.

        • Oh those screenshots just saw you what the teleporters look like, need to scroll down more to see the teleporters.

          • someone

            thanks, I guess I am stupid

          • DD

            Lol same here, I feel quite stupid, sorry and thanks for the advise ^^

  • Poki#3

    I did not have the Shark for the Blood and Sand achievement spawn during the escort. I imagine there’s a different criteria for it then what you wrote.

    • Alex Manukhin

      Can confirm. First one I saw was in the middle of the dessert and second one just popped up when we were doing Lion Heropoint in outmost west of the desert.

    • Hmm I done the meta twice escorting her and the shark popped up in the exact same spot both times. I guess it could be the buried treasure event going on sametime nearby that triggers it?

      • Patrick

        It seems to be random and not tied to an event – I found him east of
        Godslost Sandfalls & on reddit someone posted this location:
        https://imgur.com/a/h5L4B (North of Skimmer WP).

    • Podoboo

      A guild mate found him in the far west near the Scavengelands, I also found him there. I assume it is just a random spawn like it was with the bloodstone crazed creatures, kill a few sandsharks and it spawns instead of one of them

  • griffon hate

    “The expert courses are usually fairly easy and lenient on time to get gold.”
    I think they are insanely hard, I do not even get close to gold. I wish anet never added these stupid mounts.

    • Poki#3

      If you have the second dive then abuse it when you can. After triggering it you have tons of speed if you delay pulling up.

      • griffon hate

        What is the 2nd dive? i have all the masteries unlocked but they seem to slow me down instead of making faster

        • Poki#3

          In the options you have keybinds for Mount skills 1 and 2 (I’ll call them MS1 and MS2). These will be important. You can also use the number 1 key for mount skill one, but don’t since it bugs the griffon sometimes for now.

          Anyway, you’re at a high place, you press MS1 and you start diving. After diving for a second you let go and you’ll even out, but now you’re flying at a much faster speed. You sacrificed some height for speed.

          Now if you’re in this state (see little wind gusts around you) you can press MS2 to pull up. This will slow you down but sometimes you need the height.

          Now, while you’re diving you can press SPACEBAR to start a faster dive. If you start it and then even out you’ll fly at rocket speeds. You could fly through the entire length of Verdent Brink in seconds. But this requires more height then a normal dive and the game sometimes doesn’t let you do it right away. Not sure why, but we have to live with it. I sometimes just hold space if I want to trigger it. Anyway, this is basically a requirement for the Master courses, and makes most Expert courses (though not all) trivial.

          From that super fast state you can also pull up and gain more height then a regular pull up. You always fall at a constant rate, regardless of speed, so if you can manage to get some height and master diving, using the speed and pulling up, you can traverse large areas without looking nearly as much height as if you would just cruising and flapping.

          Sorry, for the long post 😛

  • Kaede

    Re: Flameseeker Prophecies achievement — #12 is currently impossible for me to complete. The second-last Forgotten Light that you go for in the video (the one at the top of the pointed panel over the doorway) is simply not there. I thought at first it might just be invisible for some reason, but if I go there, it doesn’t say I’ve gotten one of them. The others are all where you’ve shown them to be, but I can’t get past this step because that one light is missing. They may have changed the location since you did the video, or there may be a bug at present; I’ve run all around the place multiple times and can’t find it in another location, but may have missed it somewhere. (If anyone else manages to do this, please let me know where you found it; I’ve been stuck on it for a couple days now.)

  • Raizel

    I did all verses 3 times, why lost verse is still not unlocked? 🙁

    • Raizel

      Edit: I actually fixed it by doing the 15th verse again.

  • Alot

    That skritt doesnt want to drop Shadi’s Boots. Guess ill have to keep bashing him -.-

    • Yeah I had to do it a couple times for him to drop. Also did a relog.

      • Alot

        got it the 4th time. For oversized boots, they seemed a snug fit.

  • Kissa

    Hey Dulfy, might I suggest that under “Defector Protector– 3 AP” you add something about starting “Flowers for Jingo – 5 AP” before starting the event. I did Defector Protector first then went to the next one down the page and realized that I had to do the same event again. It failed with only 3 defectors so its a bit harder if you don’t have the 10. Thanks 🙂

  • Amyie Chavis Hlfe

    I got the achievement (Flameseeker Prophecies) (if any one didn’t figure it out how to get the last one called the (The Lost Verse)) What I did to get it. Once i have all the verses. I waited until Hall of Ascension is re-open again and re-due all scroll 3 which is (re-due scroll 3 verse 1-15 for the second time and keep track and make sure that I did them all). Once that did that and re-due scroll 3 verse 15. I got the achievement. When I did that. so Happy.

  • evilwulfie

    On the doppelganger of yourself. I had it happen to me but i died and it seems if you die and are not res before he is killed you do not get the achievement. I also do not even see it on my list for this map. Is it hidden from view for everybody ?

  • DayTrooperGW

    For prison breaker, where is ‘the fourth’ prison cell? I was just in there and spotted 3 easily but couldn’t find a fourth despite running around like crazy searching for it.

    • DayTrooperGW

      Ok, so I found the other prisoner and our group just freed all 4 and killed boss within the timer – but nobody received the Prison Breaker achievement – is this bugged!?!

  • David

    The lost verse still bugged for me. Re-did all the verse 1-15 and no achievement.

  • David

    The lost verse is still bugged. Re-did all 1-15 verse and no achievement!
