GW2: Chuka and Champawat Vol. 3: Tigris

Crafting Tigris, the Precursor weapon to Chuka and Champawat, is the next major stage towards creating your Legendary Weapon. However, we need to complete this collection first. There are 20 parts to this collection, 2 of which involve a separate collection which I will write my next Chuka post on.

If you haven’t completed the previous collections, please refer to my other guides for The Hunt and The Ambush as these need to be completed before the Tigris collection can be unlocked.

So here’s what the collection looks like in the Achievements tab:

Please note: I completed this collection over a year ago at which point I wasn’t taking screenshots. I have tried to go back and get screenshots for some locations, but I won’t have any Fractal screenshots as I no longer take part in these runs.

1. Cymbel’s Trust – Travel to Deathblade’s Watch waypoint in Fields of Ruin and head south to Cymbel’s Rescue. Talk to Cymbel after completing any of the events involving her hounds. If an event is on, she will not speak with you until the event is complete. Speaking with her will then unlock the opportunity to begin the Naturalist’s Journal.

2. Naturalist’s Journal – Craft another Crude Leather Book (12 Cured Thick Leather Squares, 6 Leather Strings and 40 Elder Wood Planks) and take it to Cymbel in Fields of Ruin. This will unlock a new sub-collection where you will need to gather 15 entries. Follow the link for my separate guide on the Naturalist’s Journal.

3. Completed Naturalist’s Journal – Bring the completed journal (by completing the sub-collection) to Cymbel. See the link for this post in the previous section.

4. Verdant Brink Tiger Refuge Sign – Complete the Ordnance Corps Meta Event in Verdant Brink. You only need to complete the last event in the chain, “Plant bombs to destroy the Blighting Tree”, to get this achievement. The event takes place north of Mellaggan’s Valor waypoint in The Corpse Grove. If the event isn’t active, you will have to complete previous events in the Ordnance Corps chain during the day cycle.

5. Tangled Depths Tiger Refuge Sign – Complete the Teku Nuhoch Meta Event in Tangled Depths. You only need to complete the last event in the chain, “Slay the Magnificent Chak Blitzer”, to get this achievement. The Chak Blitzer spaws north of Rata Novus waypoint. You will need to complete the previous events in the Teku Nuhoch (Friend of the Frogs) event chain for the Blitzer to spawn.

6. Dragon’s Stand Tiger Refuge Sign – Defeat the Mouth of Mordremoth in Dragon’s Stand. Again, you only need to participate in killing the Mouth of Mordremoth at the end of the Meta Event to get the achievement, so you do not need to participate in any of the other previous events. The Mouth of Mordremoth spawns in Dragon’s Domain at the end of the map events after defeating the Blighting Towers.

20171027173301_1

7. Brisban Jaguar Refuge Sign – Complete any Bandit event located near Wendon Steps or Gnasher’s Hills in the north-east of Brisban Wildlands. Travel to Wendon waypoint and just hang about until an event spawns. Defeating Flyrra does not count towards this achievement as this event was added after the collection was created.

20171027173550_1

8. Frostgorge Leopard Refuge Sign – Defeat the Champion Ice Drake Broodmother located in Leopard’s Tail Valley in Frostgorge Sound. Travel to Skyheight Steading and travel north to find the event. If it isn’t there, just hang around for it to respawn.

20171027173759_1

9. Timberline Wildlife Refuge Sign – Complete any of the 3 Risen events located near Serpent Stones in Timberline Falls. Travel to Serpent Waypoint and just hang around for an event to spawn if there aren’t any already active.

20171027173921_1

10. Snowden Wildlife Refuge Sign – Defeat the Champion Icebrood Goliath located near Tromigar Valley in Snowden Drifts. Travel to Snowhawk Landing waypoint and head north to Blasted Haven. If the event isn’t active already, just wait there for it to spawn.

20171027174144_1

11. Dredgehaunt Lynx Refuge Sign – Complete either of the two Jotun events located at the Kenning Testing Ground near Theign Spiritwalk in Dredgehaunt Cliffs. Travel to Kenning Testing Ground waypoint and wait here for the events to spawn. One follows straight after the other and both happen within the settlement.

20171027175156_1

12. Vigil Cat Sitter – Give a Slab of Poultry Meat to each of Elena’s kitties located near the Mount Sea in Mount Malestrom. Travel to Oxbow Ilse waypoint and you will find the “kitties” in a tent on the west of the island. The meat needs to be in your inventory to be able to feed them to the cats. There are two cats here that you need to feed.

20171025201929_1

13. Pact Cat Sitter – Give a Slab of Poultry Meat to each of the cats in Caer Aval located in Fort Trinity in Straits of Devastation. You will need to enter the Caer Aval instance in Fort Trinity by travelling to Fort Trinity waypoint, and head south-east towards the huge door of the instance. There are three cats here that need to each be fed a slab of meat, again making sure that the meat is in your inventory.

20171025202457_1

14. Royal Cat Sitter – Give a Slab of Poultry Meat to Shadow, Queen Jennah’s cat, in the Queen’s Throne Room instance north of Palace waypoint in Divinity’s Reach. You will need one slab of meat in your inventory to give to Shadow to complete this achievement.

20171025202259_1

15. Master of the Cliff – At the end of the Cliffside Fractal, threaten (/threaten) the Colossus after you have freed him. You need to do this fairly quickly before he walks off into the distance. If you haven’t played fractals before, you will need to play all the levels in order before being able to pick which one you play. In the Initiate bracket (level 1-25), Cliffside can be found at levels 7 and 22.

16. Fiercest Feline – Defeat Old Tom in the Uncategorized Fractal. Old Tom is located hallway through the Fractal, so the level does not need to be fully completed for you to get the achievement. In the Initiate bracket (level 1-25), Uncategorized can be found at levels 4 and 12.

17. Cat’s Grace – Defeat Captain Mai Trinn in the Mai Trinn Fractal. You will need to complete the whole level to get this achievement. In the Initiate bracket (level 1-25), Mai Trinn can be found at level 18.

18. Souvenir Cat Ears – Defeat Captain Ashym in the Urban Battleground Fractal. Again, you will need to complete the whole Fractal level to get this achievement. In the Initiate bracket (level 1-25), Urban Battleground can be found at levels 1 and 11.

19. Chuka and Champawat Vol. 3 – Purchase this from Gradmaster Craftsman Hobbs in the Lion’s Arch crafting area for 5 Spirit Shards and 10,0003 Karma. You will need to have the “History of the Armaments” Mastery (Tyria Legendary Crafting, Level 3) in order to be able to purchase this.

20171027175817_1

20. The Ambush – You will have already crafted this weapon in order to unlock the collection. To receive the Spirit of the Ambush for use in crafting Tigris, you will need to salvage it. This will obviously destroy the weapon, but the skin will still be available in the wardrobe.

 

Crafting Tigris:

After you have completed this collection, you will have unlocked the recipe to craft the precursor weapon, Tigris. Here’s what you will need:

Spirit of the Tiger:

  • Acquired from the “Chest of the Tiger” that is awarded for completing this collection

Spirit of the Ambush

  • Salvaged from “The Ambush”

Visage of Chuka:

    • 10 Piles of Crystalline Dust (Salvaged from Globs of Ectoplasm)
    • 10 Globs of Dark Matter (Rarely salvaged from high level Exotic gear)
  • 2 Deldrimor Steel Ingots (20 Iron Ingots, 10 Steel Ingots, 20 Darksteel Ingot, 1 Lump of Mithrillium each)
  • 5 Elonian Leather Squares (20 Cured  Thin Leather Squares, 10 Cured Course Leather Squares, 20 Cured Rugged Leather Squares, 1 Spool of Thick Elonian Cord each)
  • 1 Lesser Vision Crystal (2 Bloodstone Bricks, 2 Dragonite Ingots, 3 Empyreal Stars, 1 Augur’s Stone – bought from Miyani for 20 Spirit Shards)

Visage of Champawat

  • Stonecleaver’s Valkyrie Inscription
    • 1 Valkyrie Orichalcum Imbued Inscription (5 Orichalcum Plated Dowels, 5 Globs of Ectoplasm, 5 Vicious Fangs)
    • 1 Deldrimor Steel Plated Dowel (3 Deldrimor Steel Ingots, 3 Spiritwood Planks)
    • 10 Piles of Crystalline Dust (Salvaged from Globs of Ectoplasm)
    • 10 Globs of Dark Matter (Rarely salvaged from high level Exotic gear)
  • 2 Deldrimor Steel Ingots (20 Iron Ingots, 10 Steel Ingots, 20 Darksteel Ingot, 1 Lump of Mithrillium each)

  • 1 Lesser Vision Crystal (2 Bloodstone Bricks, 2 Dragonite Ingots, 3 Empyreal Stars, 1 Augur’s Stone – bought from Miyani for 20 Spirit Shards)

Here’s what Tigris looks like. It’s definitely a million times better than the other things we crafted earlier, and it’s now beginning to look worth all the time, money and effort we’ve put in. In some respects I actually prefer the appearance to the actual Legendary as I love the all black/grey look.

  1. I am now not certain where you’re getting your information, but good topic. I must spend some time finding out much more or figuring out more. Thank you for excellent information I was in search of this information for my mission.

    1. Thank you so much for doing this, very helpful but i wont continue making my bow, as looking through i see i need to do 4 fractals, sigh, not really my thing, i did a raid to get some stuff for a trinket, and i opened lots of chests but the item i needed didnt drop, it was bugged but my ticket was answered with go try it again, so that sort of ruined the game or that part of it for me, i love this game, and play it every day, but the legendary short bow will be put on hold.
