Crystal Attunement – 3 AP, Bag of Lodestones

Collect all the Branded crystal samples that Naja requires. The drop rate for this collection seems to be fairly low and some drops are daily gated so if you kill something like the Branded Djinn or Branded Shatterer before unlocking this collection, you will need to wait for the daily reset or do them on a different character. You are better off just keep doing the Branded Shatterer event and doing specific events than mindlessly farming Branded.

gw2-crystal-attunement-collection-guide-8

Spoke with Naja

Talk to Naja in Sun’s Refuge to unlock this collection. Do not kill branded mobs without talking to her first as they will not drop the collection items otherwise.

gw2-crystal-attunement-collection-guide

Bloody Branded Crystal

Obtained from Branded Human, Charr, and Ogres in Jahai Bluffs. Best place is during the Branded Shatterer event.

Stained Branded Crystal

Obtained from powerful branded creatures in Jahai Bluffs. There are Elite Branded Awakened corporals that spawns at Argon Garrison, Crescent’s Propersity and east of Yatendi Village as part of events to kill them after clearing the area of Branded mobs. Regular Elite Branded Awakened mobs can sometimes also drop them.

gw2-crystal-attunement-collection-guide-3gw2-crystal-attunement-collection-guide-2gw2-crystal-attunement-collection-guide-9

Crusty Branded Crystal

Obtained from Branded Hydras and Forgotten in Jahai Bluffs. There is a Branded Champion Hydra event that spawns at Crystal Cavern. It starts with a pre-event near Venta Pass to collect lost supplies to Second Spear NPCs, then collecting dolyak meats before finally ending at Crystal Cavern POI to fight the Champion Branded Hydra.

gw2-jahai-bluffs-achievement-guide-9gw2-jahai-bluffs-achievement-guide-8

You can also find some Branded Hydras and Forgotten just east of Reclaimed Chantry area. Some Branded Forgotten do spawn during the Shatterer fight as well.

gw2-crystal-attunement-collection-guide-4

Fiery Branded Crystal

Obtained from Branded Djinn in Jahai Bluffs. Only drops off Vemyen which has a pre-escort event to get Ziya from Kondonur Temple to Shattered Cliffs. However this drop is daily gated so if you killed him once today before unlocking the collection then you need to wait for a daily reset. Can always do it on a second character to avoid the daily gate.

gw2-crystal-attunement-collection-guide-5

Occluded Branded Crystal

Obtained from Branded Devourers and Earth Elementals in Jahai Bluffs. Best place is during the Branded Shatterer event.

Insubstantial Branded Crystal

Obtained from Branded Riftstalkers in Jahai Bluffs. The Champion Riftstalker that spawns during the Shatterer event usually have a very high drop rate.

Smoked Branded Crystal

Obtained from the Shatterer in Jahai Bluffs. Usually guaranteed drop but could be daily gated as well. Can always do it on a second character to avoid the daily gate.

gw2-crystal-attunement-collection-guide-6

In a Grain of Sand– 3 AP, Jahai Bluffs Empowerment

Gather samples of corrupted sand from around Elona for Ziya’s research

gw2-in-a-grain-of-sand-24

1. Spoke to Ziya and accepted her request

For this collection you will need to get Ziya in Sun’s Refuge. For this to happen you need to do the escort event starting with Ziya in Kodonur Temple and ends north of Shattered Cliffs with the fight against Champion Vemyen. See this guide for the details on the whole event (under story of a Djinn section). Talk to Ziya after in Sun’s Refuge and pick the first dialogue option to start the collection and get a Sand’s Compass. To use Sand’s Compass, you will need to mount up on your Jackal mount and then double click on the item. This will place a special action key you can spam to get a distance reading to the Corrupt Sand you need to find (blue = far, yellow = close by, red = very close)

gw2-in-a-grain-of-sand-2gw2-in-a-grain-of-sand-3

2. Somewhere in Jahai Bluffs

This Corrupt Sand is a bit high up so you will need to use springer to get up and then use the jackal to locate it.

Good, Better, Nest – 3 AP, Karmic Retribution

Collect at least 5 gifts for the nest Taimi is building. You only need to collect 5 out of the 7 items for the collection.

gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-20

Speak to Taimi about Aurene’s nest

Pick the dialogue option – What are you doing? and Is there anything I can do to unlock the collection

gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-2gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide

1. Retrieve a gift from the Free Awakened recruiter at Vabbi’s Necropolis

You need to do the two nearby hearts near the Free Awakened Recruiter and then talk to Free Awakend Recruiter Orin and ask if Taimi said anything. If you don’t see the recruiter, try it on another character that did Path of Fire.

gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-5gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-6

2. Retrieve a gift from Warmaster Steelburn at Pact Vanguard camp

Do the heart at the Pact Vanguard camp in Jahai Bluffs and then talk to the heart vendor to ask for stuff to comfort Aurene.

gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-3gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-4

3. Retrieve a gift from Sayida the Sly in Istan

This one was bugged for me as Sayida won’t appear despite having completed Daybreak on the same character. If it isn’t bugged for you, then you will find Sayida on the Dark Leviathan and then she will ask you to complete the nearby heart for the item. Luckily the achievement only requires 5 gifts out of 7.

4. Retrieve a gift from Zalambur in his office at the Grand Sahil

Talk to Zalambur in the Grand Sahil Casino (personal instance at back of the Casino) in Amnoon. He mentions about Chief Hazim.

gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-10gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-9

You now need to go to the Amnoon Waterworks Authority and do the event to stop the saboteurs. Afterwards, confront Zalambur again and he will give you the item.

gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-8gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-11

5. Retrieve a gift from Imann in Amnoon’s council chambers

Talk to Chief Councilor Imann on the second level of Amnoon Civic Centre (personal instance) and ask for a gift for Aurene. She will direct you to do the event Recover the sunken Cionsortium cargo polluting Amnoon’s harbor.

gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-12gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-13

This event doesn’t have a pre-event and just spawn off Amnoon’s harbor periodically. Return to Imann after completion of the event for your item.

gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-14gw2-good-better-nest-collection-guide-15

6. Retrieve a gift from Mal at Atholma Farms

Go to the old house at the marked location west of Venta Pass and then type /cry

gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-8gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-9

4. Right is left, but next time its wrong; in the courtyard you will remember its song.

For this item you will need to do the treasure race in Fortress of Jahai which starts roughly every 30 minutes at the location marked by the arrow with Arbiter Lo Loju. The item you are looking for is a lute near end of the race.

gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-18gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-19

5. Along the River of Rilohn sits a large orange tree; with a view of the fortress, true love’s flowers be.

gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-11gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-10

6. Your favourite fruit, let that set in; a farmland’s tree holds the key, to those who threaten.

Find this bush above Yatendi Village and use /threaten on it.

gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-14gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-15

7. You became a military man, though Awakened wear no suit. North of Wurmhaven, find your sword and salute.

Inside Garrison Command POI, type /salute towards this sword.

gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-17gw2-memorabilia-collection-guide-16

8. In a graveyard from the right, pay your respects to whom they are due; one, three, then seven hold the clue.

Go to the cemetery by Crescent’s Propersity and type /kneel at the first, third and seventh tombstone from the right. You will know you are kneeling at the correct one when you see a spectral energy buff around you.

The Convergence of Sorrow I: Elegy – 5 AP, Box of Elegy Armor

See this guide for the collection

  • Lindsay He

    tyvm <3

  • Tyrel Nephelim

    Can’t find the notes for memorabilia, i guess need something before.

  • Karagianis

    Darn, I already bought a portal scroll, didn’t know I could get a free one for doing a collection. Oh well, it wasn’t the most expensive thing ever.

    • This one just send you to Sun’s Refuge, not the new map

  • just sayin

    these updates just get lamer – I am still too burnt out on the roller beetle and griffon collections to give 2 sh1ts about doing any of this crap – this roll out is just another disappointment – Im not sure who decided that going here and there collecting stuff at places you have already been and events you have already done can be considered new content, but I wish they would fire whoever it is – you have to be pretty mindless or stoned off your ass to think this is fun

    • Takuma

      It’s almost like people have different opinions. You just sound like a negative miser, uninstall the game and piss off ty

      • Narottam Zakheim

        dunno.. for me this is the best update ever…. they have taken the story and map to a whole new level… havent done much of the collections yet… but look for ward to it…. im always happy to have new reasons to play existing content…. breathes life into some neglected areas of the game…. i was a bit underwhelmed with kourna… but this place really impresses me…. esp the mushroom chamber XD

      • just sayin

        I paid for the game and therefore allowed to have an opinion – you don’t like it uninstall the internet and piss off

    • Chappyzilla

      I mean then don’t do it? That’s always an option surprisingly, sounds like you need a long break from this game

      • just sayin

        Im not going to “do it”. I find this content development to be lazy and not any fun to play – seems the devs primary focus is skins to sell for gems and making endless animations that cause WvW, meta events and world bosses to be laggy and unplayable.

        you may be correct about the break, though ironically I just came back from over a year hiatus

  • Kit

    Thank you for the guide. Loving this release and visiting old allies for the collections! The lore drops in this release were epic. =)

  • Raizel

    3. In a house in Venta, an old frame lies; its story appears to whomever cries

    I doesn’t work for me, no matter how many times I type cry, is there some other requirement or it’s bugged?

    • Raizel

      Edit: it worked but only after a lot of /cry tries xD

    • Lana

      You have to be in a particular position in front of the frame.

    • Ryan Hill

      make sure you’re right in front of it and typing “/cry” i got it early today, but idk if its buggy for some.

  • Ryan Hill

    step 4 of

    Memorabilia is closer to a 30min wait for race to start.

  • Sotos

    I think this one of the best patch.
    Really enjoy it.

  • michaelj

    step 4 ofMemorabilia is closer to a 30min wait for race to start.

  • hmmm

    does anyone know if it’s possible to get the tear of jahai (exhibit aye) without the griffon?
    i thought griffon was supposed to be entirely optional anet :/

  • Bailun

    You can find a desert fox to join your refuge. You just have to get him a food bundle from the Yatendi village Renown heart. It also rewards you with a desert fox minipet.

    • Suan

      The heart vendor doesn’t sell any food to me. Only one locked item that is probably for the armor collection.

      • He doesn’t sell it. Don’t complete the heart yet (or switch to another char) and then you will find some food bundles in one of the tents.

    • Gabriele Dell’Olio

      You can just give the fox an egg from the harpy nests nearby.

  • Alot

    Does the karmic retribution reward stack with thr obes you buy for volatile magic?

    • Darkye Rhiadra

      You can only buy first 2 levels on map, with VM. The one from collection will add up to get you the 3rd level like the previous LS maps.

  • Louisa Dalrymple

    For Watchful Eyes you have to /kneel at the 22 Griffons in Sun’s Refuge

    • Noldaren

      I can’t seem to find the last four I need for this.

  • Noldaren

    I’m having the worst luck with the Bloody Branded Crystal. Did the Shatterer and got that crystal whilst also killing a bunch of regular mobs with no luck. Then I went on a hunting spree of the mobs that drops this and still nothing. I’ll have to try again later, this is the last crystal I need for the Collection.

  • erik

    I think this one of the best patch.Really enjoy it.

    • Narottam Zakheim

      agree…. love the story… love the map… cant wait to start doing all these achievements…. awesome patch

  • Bailun
    • The Never Mind

      I found a bunch of runes, similar to the initial mists area when you
      were looking for Kormir. They have arrows. So far I’ve only found three
      in the SW corner near roosting griffons. After activating any of the
      rune wheels, you receive a buff called “Challenge of the Ancients”. The
      buff last for 2 minutes.

    • snowsounds

      There’s 4 locations you’ve screenshotted but when i hit those 4 i run out of time and fail. Is there one missing?

  • YAbou

    Did someone find a way to get the tear of Jahai whitout griffon? (Exhibit Aye achievement)

  • The Never Mind

    I found a bunch of runes, similar to the initial mists area when you were looking for Kormir. They have arrows. So far I’ve only found three in the SW corner near roosting griffons.

  • Sabrina

    For the Good, Better, Nest achievement, you actually need to complete 6 to get it, not 5.

    • Darkye Rhiadra

      Do you have 6 gifts displayed in SR at the nest? If not, then it should have taken only 5 as well, you probably just missed it. Or it’s buggy… wouldn’t be a surprise.

      • The Never Mind

        Don’t include “Speak to Taimi”.

  • FrycoN

    Item that teleport you to griffon sanctuary (griffon mount collection) “Spermarshal’s Plea” also teleport you to Sun’s Refuge instance.

    • WWxillx .

      thnx bro

  • Aymiia Darell

    I don’t suppose anyone has any videos of how to get in that water fall area for that note? I’m trying to blindly fly in places at varying heights and I can’t figure it out.

    • Andraste

    • Ares Zax

      Long story short, you can just go to the base of the waterfall and use (upgraded) Springer jump to get in.

  • Adrian

    Any way to take again “Notes to Myself”, i believe i discarded together with other useless stuff

  • John Doran

    Might be worth including in the guide that the Crystal Attunement collection requires an item you get from completing the “Storm Tracking” story step in order for Naja to unlock the collection.

  • disqus_YGMwhKwlHS

    Is there some trick to ‘Crystal Attunement’. I’ve tried talking to Naja but it doesn’t unlock the collection

  • Narottam Zakheim

    Might be worth noting that The Convergence of Sorrow 1: Elegy needs to be completed in order…. wasnt clear to me from the guide… hope this helps someone
