GW2: Aurora: Awakening – Lake Doric Master

Aurora: Awakening is the first official step of the Legendary Trinket’s collections. After you’ve forged your Gleam of Sentience and purchased your Sentient Seed, you will have unlocked these collections. See my Aurora Introductory Post for more information.

Here’s what the Aurora: Awakening collection looks like in the achievements tab:

This post will focus on the Lake Doric Section of the achievement. See my other posts on Bloodstone Fen and Ember Bay here if you’re interested. This is what the Lake Doric Master collection looks like in the achievements tab:

There are 16 parts to this collection so there’s a fair bit to do.

1. White Mantle Elite Guard Mask – You will need to complete the Head of the Snake Mastery Achievement located in the story panel for this chapter. You will need to complete 28 of the 32 achievements listed here to receive the Mask as a reward.

2. Sparkling Jade Shard – Gathered from Jade Fragments. This item will drop from harvesting the Jade Fragments in Lake Doric. It’s a random drop, so just keep going until you get the item.

3. Frontline Defender – Bought from the Heart Vendor located in Doric’s Landing for 7,000 karma. You will need to complete the heart “Aid the front-line defence of Doric’s Landing” to be able to purchase this item from the vendor. Seraph Protector is also bought from this vendor.

Fort Evennia Infiltrator – Bought from the Heart Vendor located south of Fort Evennia for 7,000 karma. You will need to complete the heart “Disrupt White Mantle forces occupying Fort Evennia” to be able to purchase this item from the vendor. The Bloodstone Savant’s Staff is also purchased from this Vendor.

5. Friend of Noran – Bought from the Heart Vendor located in Harvest Cascades for 7,000 karma. You will need to complete the heart “Help Noran around the Harvest Cascades” to be able to purchase this item from the vendor.

10. Immelhoof’s Heart – Defeat Siegemaster Immelhoof who spawns at Chieftain’s Hollow as part of the assault on Noran’s Homestead event. He can be defeated in either of the events “Defeat Siegemaster Immelhoof before he reaches the Harvest Cascades” or “Defeat Siegemaster Immelhoof” (if he reaches the Harvest Cascades).

11. Noran’s Survival Kit – Obtained the chest at the end of Noran’s Safe room mini dungeon. You will need to buy a key from Noran before entering the area otherwise you will not be able to open the chest. The key is free, but you need to complete the heart first.

Head into the house and interact with the barrels stacked up in the basement to enter the secret room.

You will come across a small chest part way through the mini dungeon which will give Noran’s Key Oil. Combine this with Noran’s key to be able to open the chest at the end of the mini dungeon.

12. Jade Cannon Controller – Dropped by White Mantle defending Jade Cannons. Again this is a random drop so just keep participating in the “Destroy the Jade Cannon” events until you get the item.

13. Pristine White Mantle – Dropped by White Mantle in Lake Doric. There are White Mantle found all over this map, so jus keep killing them until you get the drop.

14. Seraph Protector – Bought from the Heart Vendor in Doric’s Landing for 210,000 Karma and 30 Jade Fragments. You will need to complete the heart “Aid the front-line defence of Doric’s Landing” to be able to purchase this item from the vendor.

15. Bloodstone Savant’s Staff – Bought from the Heart Merchant south of For Evennia (Exemplar Ylan) for 210,000 Karma and 50 Jade Shards. You will need to have completed the heart before you can purchase this item.

16. Ebon Vanguard Badge – Found near the graves of Ebon Vanguard Soldiers. This item is found in the chest in a cave at the very south-west point of the map in Melandru’s Refuge. The cave is sectioned off with a gate that can only be opened by the Priestess of Melandru who only appears during the night.

To start this event, you will need an Ethereal Torch which is made from a simple stick and then combined with the Ethereal Flame found slightly north-east of the Loamhurst Clubhouse POI.

Now you can start the event. Head south to where the beach reaches the trees at night time and you should see the Priestess of Melandru to the south. If she’s not there then someone else may have already stared the event.

You need to escort her to the gate, lighting rocks using the torch at the base of some trees with the final one being at the gate. If a rock has been missed then the Priestess will disappear and she will respawn again a few minutes later at the starting point. 

20170903190304_1

Enter the cave where you will have to do a bit of platform hopping to reach the platform with the tomb and the chest on. Reaching the platform will award you with the hidden achievement “Not all who wander are lost” and interacting with the chest will give you the Ebon Vanguard Badge needed for the collection.

I know I was a bit later releasing this as I completed it at the same time as the other sections, but the release of Path of Fire and LWS3 has taken over the show! I hope to post more on the other sections of Aurora soon!
