All professions


Enter the house. You will get a message about how golems are going to kill you. Then golems try to kill you. Fight them off. This can be tricky because of confined spaces.

After you kill the golems on the first floor, go to the basement where you will see Maeva stuck in a force field. Also more golems will try to kill you. Kill them.

Once you killed all the golems, talk to Sieran who will tell you to find a dimensional anchor. The anchor is in the green circle, but it is up on the roof of the building. Go to the roof of the building, killing all the golems and turrets on the way. Alternatively, you can skip all the golems if you have enough health and quick moves.

There is a doorway on the roof blocked by a force field. Use the control panel next to the doorway to turn off the force field. Then go through the doorway and get attacked by more golems and turrets. Kill them if desired.

Turn left and go up the stairs. The dimensional anchor is sitting on the ground next to where a turret is.

Use "1" on the anchor to bash golems. Use "2" on the anchor to do the dimensional attack you have to do downstairs. Go to the basement, if you already killed all the golems in the rest of the house that's ok, but once your use anchor skill 2, the remaining golems turn friendly and fight with you. There will be about 5 golems attacking you in the basement as you enter. Soon after breaking Maeva free the Scout will attack you. Kill it, if you let any golems survive, they will severely damage the Scout for you.

And that's how you do that mission!

Killing the golems counts as killing enemy guards for the WvW Season 1 achievement





Upon approaching Gixx:

If you chose to save the skritt:
Gixx: The dragons are a threat to everyone, Ftokchak. I'm glad your village has joined the fight against them.
Ftokchak: We're small, but we have no fear. Skritt will be good friends. You'll see.
If you chose to save the hylek:
Gixx: The dragons are a threat to everyone, lkniu. I'm pleased your village has joined the fight against them.
Ikniu: The Sun God looks down on this world. He watches us. we Will not fail.
If you chose to save the quaggan:
Gixx: The dragons are a threat to everyone, Shashoo. I'm pleased your village has joined the fight against them.
Shashoo: Although war is strange to quaggans, quaggans will help the Priory in any way quaggans can.
Talking to Shashoo:
Shashoo: Hoo, Commander[sic]! Quaggan is very happy to see you again. Quaggan is ready to repay you for saving quaggan's people.
Talk more option tango.png
Have you found a new home yet?
Coo! It is far from complete, but quaggans settled on a nice patch outside Lion's Arch. More quaggans are ready to join if necessary.
Talk end option tango.png
We're grateful.
Talk end option tango.png
Welcome aboard.

Talking to Gixx:

Gixx: Good day, Explorer! Sieran and I have been discussing your recent ordeal.
Gixx: It is tragic, simply tragic, that such destruction was inflicted. I cannot overstate it: the dragons must be stopped.
Gixx: The one bright spot in this whole situation is that your actions have saved many lives—and gained allies for the Priory.
Gixx: As Steward, I'm pleased to promote you to the Priory's highest active rank: Magister.
<Character name>: Thank you, Steward Gixx. It's a great honor.
Magister Sieran: Congratulations, fellow Magister!
Gixx: Celebrate all you like, but I need you to run a small errand as well.
Gixx: An associate of mine recently developed a new equation that might pinpoint weaknesses in higher magical entities—like the dragons.
Gixx: Maeva has offered the Priory a copy of her research. I want you to go to Lion's Arch and pick it up.
Magister Sieran: Sounds like fun! I'll meet you at her house. It's on the beach, near the Western Ward.

If you talk to Gixx after cinematic

Gixx: Sieran can be a impulsive, but she's a worthy mentor. You've helped her be a better agent, and for that I'm grateful.
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me more about Maeva.
Gixx: Maeva? Well, she's... she's an independent researcher. Maverick, really. Her ideas are mad. Brilliant, yes, but quite mad.
Talk more option tango.png
Is there something you're not telling me?
Gixx: No! I mean, no. She's just... well, she's quite gifted. Extraordinarily so. Lovely... lovely mind.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll put in a good word for you.
Talk end option tango.png
I look forward to meeting her.
Talk end option tango.png
I won't let you down.

Upon approaching Sieran in Lion's Arch:

Magister Sieran: This is the right house, but Gixx didn't say anything about weird lights and thumping noises. Do you think that's normal?
<Character name>: I seriously doubt it. The house's defense mechanisms have been activated.
Magister Sieran: Oh, no. Maybe someone tried to break in and steal Maeva's research!
Magister Sieran: We'd better head in and find Maeva. She may need our help.

Upon Enter Maeva's house:

Maeva's Projection: Welcome to the home of Maeva, Extraordinary Knowledge Technician.
Maeva's Projection: Currently, Maeva's home is on full-alert lockdown due to perimeter breach.
Maeva's Projection: Visitors will be politely greeted and summarily destroyed.
Maeva's Projection: Please remain calm as the hospitality defenses vaporize you.

Upon approaching Maeva:

Maeva's Projection: I regretfully inform you that our defenses have escalated.
Maeva's Projection: Dimensional stasis fields initiated, and secondary golemic enforcers are now active.
Maeva's Projection: Please remain quiescent during complete eradication, and enjoy the soothing music.

Talking to Sieran after killing golems:

Magister Sieran: Maeva does research on dimensional and stasis bioscience. I remember Gixx going on and on about it. And on, and on...
Talk quest option tango.png
Anything that might help in this situation?
Magister Sieran: She invented a device, something called a Dimensional Anchor. It stabilizes dimensional rifts.
Talk quest option tango.png
That means there's got to be one around here somewhere.

Checking the Control Panel:

This circuit supplies power to the field.
Talk quest option tango.png
Enter the code and disable the field.
Talk end option tango.png

After you initiated the dimensional anchor:

Maeva's Projection: Congratulations! You have successfully initiated the dimensional anchor.
Maeva's Projection: If correctly installed, the dimensional anchor will stabilize dimensional phenomena.
Maeva's Projection: However, as a side effect, the anchor may cause migraines, disintegration, and/or violent arcane overload.
Maeva's Projection: We invite you to relax while the dimensional interface is restored.

After killing the Orrian scout:

Maeva: Salutations! l see you're from the Priory. Thanks for the help. I'm glad I didn't have to wait for the defenses to deactivate.
<Character name>: And how long would that have taken, exactly?
Maeva: Oh, thirty—five hundred years, give or take a decade. At that point I would have emerged from stasis, confident that the radiation was gone.
Maeva: What's this? Aha! The creature that invaded my house was some kind of Orrian scout.
Maeva: I told Gixx that my equations predicted an assault on Lion's Arch. This intrusion implies we've reached time-critical for that attack.
Magister Sieran: If that's true, then the whole city's in danger! Maeva, go to the Priory. Show Gixx your research.
Magister Sieran: My friend and I will head for Claw Island immediately. We have to warn the Lionguard.
<Character name>: What's on Claw Island?
Magister Sieran: The Claw Island fortress stands in the harbor of Lion's Arch. It's the last defense against invasion from the sea.
Magister Sieran: If Zhaitan's going to attack the city, its minions will have to fight their way past the fort.

My Story[edit]

On Red Alert.jpg

I reported back to headquarters, and was promoted to Magister. Gixx has a small job for us next — to retrieve some research papers from his colleague, Maeva, in Lion's Arch.

On entering Maeva's house, we discovered it has been torn apart by a monstrous scout from Orr. Sieran and I are headed to Claw island, to warn the Lionguard.
