Acquisition[edit]

Pursuit of Knowledge[edit]

Acquire an Unidentified Lodestone from any dragon minion and bring it to Ela Makkay in Lion's Arch. It is a random drop.

Ley-Line Cartography[edit]

Complete the event Defeat the dragon minions before they absorb too much ley-line magic found in the following locations. You must complete one of the three locations in each zone to get the achievement.

 Skradden Waypoint North in a cove between mountain peaks

After the event completes successfully, a follow-up event (Defeat the coalescence to disperse the ley-line magic) will trigger to defeat a Champion Coalescence

The events spawn roughly every 10 minutes at one of three locations in each zone and do not begin until a player approaches the locations.

Hold the Line[edit]

To get this achievement, don't let the minions during the first event absorb any energy from the Accumulated Ley Energy mobs. The minions will target you over the sparks, so run around and tag them to keep them interested in you instead. If the event completes with no energy absorbed, you get the achievement.

Magic Dispersed[edit]

Defeat the Champion Coalescence five times. This can be done at any of the locations.

Out of the Wrong Hands[edit]

See also: Defeat the Inquest to prevent them from capturing the Ley-Energy Coalescence

Assist the Priory or Consortium groups against the Inquest 10 times to get the achievement.

In addition, there are 6 hidden achievements for helping the individual Priory or Consortium groups three times each, in each zone. To get these, you assist the specific NPC for the achievement, turn in at least 1 Ley Energy to get credit for that group, and then successfully complete the event. The groups' starting locations and the hidden achievement for each one is below:

The Priory NPCs begin traveling from:

Keadin's Study -
Waypoint (tango icon).png
 Refuge Sanctum Waypoint
Fiona's Stockpile -
Waypoint (tango icon).png
 Scholar's Cleft Waypoint
Garen's Defense - south-east of
Point of interest.png
 Gorlois Spine

The Consortium NPCs begin traveling from:

Flinnz's Retirement -

 The Last Whiskey Bar Waypoint
Shana's Ambition - south of
Waypoint (tango icon).png
 Lornar's Waypoint
Loonaloo's Paycheck -
Waypoint (tango icon).png
 Murkvale Waypoint

Thwart the Inquest[edit]

During the above events, do not allow the Inquest to retrieve any Ley Energy objects. This can be achieved by defeating all golems (which carry the energy) before they make it to the Lead Scientist. Players should also pick up any Ley Energy that are close to the Inquest and move them away to give as much time as possible to take out the golems.

Ley-Line Research[edit]

While completing the above events for the Priory, turn in 30 Ley Energy. This counts for any of the three Priory NPCs. During the events, there can easily be several Ley Energy near the collector that can be grabbed easily.

Ley-Line "Research"[edit]

While completing the above events for the Consortium, turn in 30 Ley Energy. This counts for any of the three Consortium NPCs. During the events, there can easily be several Ley Energy near the collector that can be grabbed easily.

Trivia[edit]

  • This achievement category was added on August 8th, 2017, and was split from the Current Events category while adding new Ley of the Land and Conseration of Magic achievements.
