  • Item #6 is collected during the Branded shift
  • Item #7 is collected during the Iboga shift, where no event spawns.

This event happens every 20+ minutes when the Ancestor Tree does a Temporal Shift to the Djinn version (the tree has several different versions, only Djinn version contains this event and collection must be done in sequential order). After successful completion of the event, talk to Vemyen that spawns for this item.

  • The event is called Find the djinn vessel before the Brandstorm overwhelms the area
  • The Temporal Shifts are: Djinn –> Branded –> Iboga (no events) –> Djinn, each lasting 10 minutes.

But whats with instance itself? Does anybody know how thouse “pact survey team” should looks? Bought it from hear vendor Warmaster Steelburn and can’t see the difference, dont care about 5 gold and 500 magic, but this was one time account purchase so I can’t buy it again.

It will give you a bunch of priory archeologists over by Brahm with a room that you need to collect dropped runes (earth, wind, vine, thorn…and I don’t have the last one yet. There’s a guide for it on this site..”Doors to the Past”

the 2nd collection [Historic Leggings] – Does it work immediately after historic boots? Re-entering instance and talking to her also doesn’t work Do you have to wait a day? or do you have to start all over from “Mist-Entangled Item” I’m confused because talking to Ely again, she won’t talk to me just says “not today, but… good luck”.

I am at the gloves phase of this guide and cannot see a mist entangled item for sale at village head Azi. I have the legs, ive refreshed the map, check on alts, and nothing. Do i need to wait until reset?

the village heart vendor Azi does not have this in their inventory. The only other heart vendors are @ the Pact Camp and @ Reclaimed Chantry.

I have the same issue, I can’t start the collection for the Gloves. Azi wont sell me the item and talking to Ely also won’t start it. tried other instance, other character, relog and even reboot….

Anyone knows something ?

I’m quite unhappy with the Heavy set tbh, my Sylvari looks fat in it and I only play Heavy professions so I won’t even try to get this, I’ll stick with the Aetherblade pants, lol.

Seems like a lot of work just for exotic armor with already set stats but I am quite tempted to go for it solely because you can dye the glow on the upgraded armor

the legging looks good, not big fan of shoulders and chest piece. To each his own I guess. It probably would look better with less particle effects IMHO.

I cannot continue the collection. I’m at the helm part and the Swim Speed +1 Infusion doesn’t exist, so you cannot continue. Hope they fix it soon.

i am on the leggings and i am talking to ely but she doesn’t give me the leggings collection. and i have already done the boots. Can i do only one per day or something? i have tried about 10 times now.

Historic Chest Last step
1. 10 Lump of Mistonium + 5 Ecto + 100 Volatile Magic + 5 Watchwork Sprocket
2. 10 Lump of Mistonium + 5 Ecto + 100 Volatile Magic + 5 Crystalline Dust
3.10 Lump of Mistonium + 5 Ecto + 100 Volatile Magic + 5 Superior Sigil of Nullification
4. 10 Lump of Mistonium + 5 Ecto + 100 Volatile Magic + 5 Amalgamated Gemstone
5. 50 Lump of Mistonium + 5 Ecto + 300 Volatile Magic + 1 Heart of the Destroyer

The remaining pieces of the requiem armor you did not choose from the heroic boxes cost 50 Mistonium each for the head/shoulder/hands/boots – 75 Mistonium For legs and 100 Mistonium for the chest

So if you want to craft them is it better to craft light and heavy than medium because of

Cured Hardened Leather Square?

For Elegy one yes, I agree with that. Requiem you don’t craft, you buy to vendor for ectos and 375 mistonium/armor.

If you have a load of characters then farming Mistonium shouldn’t be a problem. After doing some farming on the map and getting the first two pieces of armor done I simply used all my 30+ alts, ported them to Sun’s Refuge, went outside to the Pact camp and did the heart there and the heart quest at Yatendi to get everything together. Oh and the karma cost is no problem though since I have masses of it from all the WvW.

30 alts, great to see that you still have time to throw useless comments around elsewhere on the internet. Might want to talk to a psychologist about this problem of yours mate, before fungi start growing on you.

I only used the 8 chars, and made 250+ per day and finished requiem armor yesterday. 100% exploration on alts is REALLY fast compared to Kourna – 25 mistonium – (and gave me 6 BL keys too and transmut charges which I’m always grateful for).
Hearts on every char as they are fast once you know what to do, don’t need any armor as you don’t need to fight, and there’s a WP next to each one. Really fast to reach those WP too as Sun’s refuge collection item gives you 2 WP (the one south and the one not far away from shatterer).
8×15 on hearts = 120 mist./day
Kill shatterer with each char + Vermyen + Hydra + Joko gives you 20 more on each char (160/day) and lots of people are doing that atm.
Some other events might give those as well, like the 4 champs, the bounties and the Hunter’s targets, but I honestly don’t remember.
And then grab all those you find on your way. I didn’t do any real gathering tour as they were too far from each others and exploring with my toons and buffed raptor was way faster.

It’s the runes of nullification that are making me want to give up. 7~15 gold on the trading post a piece and it requires ten for the gloves…. then five apiece for the next three. Fortunately Halloween is coming up….

How do you get the Mist Entangled Item for the first set of boots collection? I followed all the previous steps and got all the items.

Then talked to Ely Scortchfire, both inside the Priory and then the Arcana. It didn’t unlock the collection.

She did turn into a vendor and let me buy the demystifying device.

Input Mist-Entangled Item – Agent Kito the heart vendor by Reclaimed Chantry Waypoint sells it once you are on this step

450 Lump of Mistonium
100 Glob of Ectoplasm
3200 Volatile Magic
25 Watchwork Sprockets
30 Crystalline Dust
25 Superior Sigils of Nullification
20 Amalgamated Gemstone
2 Swim Speed Infusion +10

The sigils of nullification jesus christ the price requirement is fucking gross.
198G for the full 25 (as of now).
This is a shit ton of work for exotic armor.

Looks like requiem armor 6th step requires daily reward from the Shatterer, so don’t kill it before finishing the 5th step.

no its not the branded shatterer. You will need to go to Mt Maelstrom. I just dont know yet if you need to kill the boss or its just lying around the area…

For the Heart you just need to click on the heart in Mount Maelstrom. No need for the boss to be killed.
But you need to unlock the last step with the Mist-Entangled item and this one is dropped by the Death Branded Shatterer.
You can just do it on another char if like me you killed it before this step so you don’t have to wait for another day.

From heart vendors I net 15 daily then for roaming around the Jahai I net around 30 – 50. Or you can do PVP and the reward track last chest gives 50 Mistonium

I made 250+ per day and finished requiem armor yesterday, doing exploration on alts as the map is REALLY fast compared to Kourna – 25 mistonium – (which gave me 6 BL keys too and transmut charges), hearts on every char (they are quite fast once you know what to do and there’s a WP next to each one). Really fast to reach those WP too as Sun’s refuge quest item gives you 2 WP.
Kill shatterer with each char + Vermyen + Hydra + Joko gives you 20 more on each char. Some other events might give those as well, like the 4 champs, but I didn’t try. And then grab all those you find on your way. I didn’t do any gathering tour as they were too far from each others and exploring with another toon was faster.

You can get 1 free Sigil of Nullification if you level up a character to 64. Just a little tip for people who need them or those that want to sell them. I was a little late though I’m glad I got them as they were going up in price. Thanks for the guide.

The Convergence of Sorrow II:Requiem

At “Historic Leggings”: You also need to interact with the Curiously Empty Bezel to get the Input Mist-Entangled Item. If you don’t do this step then you won’t be able to interact with the red button. This step is also missing at the steps for the following gear parts (gloves, shoulders, headgear, chest).

The worst part is the achievement just unlock it.. now you have to actually farm for it.. -.- pathetic atleast one set should be available from the start so much work for nothing.

You finish unlocking all 18 skins and receive an Ascended box from which you can pick 1 piece of ascended gear with core stats.

With the cost of the Sigils of Nullification you need at the moment, if you are after ascended armor it would be a hell of a lot cheaper just to craft a piece than finish the collection.

How do you do the other two sets? I see I can buy some things at the VM vendor, but that is only the Requiem pieces. How do you get the remaining Elegy pieces?
