Rewards[edit]

Walkthrough[edit]

Go to Concordia Waypoint in Gyre Rapids, Timberline Falls. From there interact with the story star to start the instance. After listening to some dialogue head into the fort to revive fallen allies. They will help you clear out the area. After the area is all clear you will need to speak with Tactician Art to decide who to take with you to find Magister Lindsay. You will now track Magister Lindsay's trail and look in the area (specifically the area with the green circle) where you will find Magister Lindsay in a nearby cave. After speaking with Magister Lindsay you and whoever you decided to take with you will escort the caravan to Goldenlight Hallow lab. You will find that the lab is under attack. You will want to secure the area around the lab. Then discuss the situation with Rox.

Achievements[edit]

Dropping like Flies
Dropping Like Flies Entanglement.png Entanglement Arenanet Points.png
Don't let any allies in Concordia perish in the initial attack.Story Instance: The Concordia Incident
Prerequisite: Entanglement Episode
Reward: Story Journal chest.png Geode Cache
Prevented Allies from Dying at Concordia Arenanet Points.png

This achievement (which is a good one to combine with Time Waits for No One), involves preventing any of the NPCs inside or outside the initial encounter in the fort from dying. In addition to ranged damage, use of which can prevent the Mordrem Vile Thrasher and Mordrem Leeching Thrashers from spawning in the first place, and healing, it is advised to bring control effects to prevent any Thrashers from moving around and spreading conditions to the NPCs. Achievement qualification is shown by the Achievement effect.png Achievement: Dropping Like Flies effect on the player's bar.

Time Waits for No One
Time Waits for No One Entanglement.png Entanglement Arenanet Points.png
Complete the Concordia instance in under 10 minutes.Story Instance: The Concordia Incident
Prerequisite: Entanglement Episode
Reward: Story Journal chest.png Ambrite Stash
Completed Instance in Under 10 Minutes Arenanet Points.png

As the description says you need to complete this instance in 10 minutes. The main thing that you want to be careful with here is making sure the "Accompany Lindsay to Goldenlight Hallow" step does not cause the "secure Goldenlight Hallow" step to bug out. To prevent this you need to be sure not to run ahead of Magister Lindsay. Achievement qualification is shown by the Achievement effect.png Achievement: Time Waits for No One effect on the player's bar.

On Swift Wings

On Swift Wings Entanglement.png Entanglement Arenanet Points.png
Find and rescue all survivors in the area around Concordia.Story Instance: The Concordia Incident
Prerequisite: Entanglement Episode
Reward: Story Journal chest.png Store of Edible Cactus
Saved All Survivors Near Concordia Arenanet Points.png

Play through the mission; clear Concordia and then save Magister Lindsay and the missing caravan in the cave. After clearing the cave, a number of allied NPCs will spawn with full health around Concordia (7 if playing solo, more if playing in a group). These NPCs typically spawn adjacent to a single Mordrem foe. The NPCs will be under the Adrenaline Rush (effect).png Adrenaline Rush effect, which makes them invulnerable to damage for 2 minutes. Run to each NPC in turn and prevent them from dying by killing each Mordrem foe. Then interact with each NPC and tell them to retreat. The map on the right indicates their rough locations. The first three allies are a short distance southeast of the cave near a wooden tower (it would be a good idea to clear out any mordrem near here before clearing Linday's cave) - one of these is at the top of the tower. The fourth ally is near or in the river further southeast. The fifth and sixth allies are due west at the entrance to another cave (these two are not under attack). The seventh lies beside the heart marker in the river. Achievement qualification is shown by the Achievement effect.png Achievement: On Swift Wings effect on the player's bar.

Dialogue[edit]

Approaching Rox and Braham
Braham Eirsson: What in Wolf's name is happening? These vines... The kid was right again.
Rox: (grumble) She's wrong sometimes too.
Braham Eirsson: What'd you say?
Rox: I said we should get moving, now that we're all here. From the look of it, they could use a hand.
Braham Eirsson: I'll take the lead.
Rox: Oh no, you don't! Not with that leg. You're still recuperating. Stay behind Frostbite. He's got a mean tail whip.
Frostbite: (chitter)
Braham Eirsson: Ganging up on me isn't fair. I'm fine. C'mon. Let's get this over with.
Approaching the fort
Braham Eirsson: Let's do it!
Rox: We're going to have to clean the whole place out!
After clearing the first enemies
Tactician Art: Attention, everyone! We have more coming from the north.
Rox: Charge!
After clearing the camp
Tactician Art: Tend to the wounded so we can get everyone inside.
Tactician Art: Everyone inside. Close the gates!
Rox: Back inside.
After everyone is alive and inside the fort
Tactician Art: Thanks for helping us out here. That attack caught us by surprise.
Rox: You had no warning?
Tactician Art: Well, a few small vines popped up after the Priory caravan arrived, but we didn't pay those any mind. Er, until they grew.
Braham Eirsson: Priory caravan? Was it carrying the vines? Seeds?
Tactician Art: Hmm, not that they mentioned. They did have some extremely old artifacts with them.
Rox: I'd like to talk to the scholar in charge of the caravan.
Tactician Art: They headed northwest with Lindsay to find the rest of the cavalcade. Some were separated from this lot.
Braham Eirsson: What's your plan?
Tactician Art: I'm taking this caravan along with everyone from Concordia to an asuran lab northeast of here, for safety.
Rox: We can go along and provide additional security.
Braham Eirsson: I want to find this Priory scholar and see where these vines came from. Why don't we split up? We can cover more ground that way.
Rox: I don't know about that. Let's discuss it more.
When speaking with Rox first
I know Braham says his leg is fine, but that trip into Dry Top was hard on him. It'd be best if he stayed with Tactician Art's caravan. I can go with you to look for survivors.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm not sure. I know he really wants to go.
Braham wants to play the hero, sure, but is that in his best interest? Knock iron that nothing happens while he's out there...
Talk end option tango.png
You're right. We should err on the side of caution. I'll let Tactician Art know.
Talk end option tango.png
I feel like he'd tell me if he wasn't ready for action. I'm going to let Tactician Art know my decision.
Talk end option tango.png
Let me think about it, and I'll let Tactician Art know which of you I decide should go.
Talk end option tango.png
Let me think about it, and I'll let Tactician Art know which of you I decide should go.
Speaking with Braham (when agreeing with Rox (If finishing with "You're right..."))
I don't want to go with the caravan. I should be out there fighting!
Talk end option tango.png
Maybe you're right. I'll tell Tactician Art that you're coming with me. Rox can stay and defend the caravan.
Talk end option tango.png
I know you want to help. but we need you to heal. I'm going to tell Tactician Art that you're staying with his caravan.
Speaking with Braham (otherwise)
Have you let Tactician Art know that we're heading out to rescue survivors? I'm ready to get started!
Talk more option tango.png
I've thought more about it. Are you sure you're up for it?
Of course I'm up for it! Rox worries too much.
Talk end option tango.png
All right. if
[sic]
you're sure, I'll let Tactician Art know.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm not so sure. I think it would be best for you to stay with the caravan.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll let him know.
When speaking with Braham first
Rox worried too much. My limp is completely gone! I should go with you to find Lindsay. What do you say?
Talk more option tango.png
I don't know. Your leg might flare up. Perhaps it's best if you stay with Tactician Art and the caravan.
It's fine; I promise. I want to get back in action. Rox can stay back and help Tactician Art.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll consider it when I let Tactician Art know my decision.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm not sure we should take the risk. I'll think on it and talk to Art.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll consider which of you goes and let Tactician Art know when I decide.
Speaking with Rox
I'm worried about this decision. What if Braham's leg gets worse?
Talk end option tango.png
You're right. We should err on the side of caution. I let Tactician Art know.
Talk end option tango.png
I feel like he'd tell me if he wasn't ready for action. I'm going to let Tactician Art know my decision.
Speaking with Tactician Art
I hope you've made a decision. We need to get underway. What do you intend to do?
Talk quest option tango.png
Rox and I will find Lindsay while Braham goes with you to Goldenlight Hallow lab.
Talk quest option tango.png
Braham and I will find Lindsay and join you at Goldenlight Hallow lab.
Talk end option tango.png
Not just yet.
If choosing Braham
Tactician Art: Excellent. We'll see you and Braham at Goldenlight Hallow.
Tactician Art: Let's move out, shall we? Raise the northern gate!
Braham Eirsson: See you on the other side, Rox.
Rox: Careful out there, Braham.
Tactician Art: All right, form up — caravan in the middle.
Tactician Art: We can handle clearing the main path. Go! Find as many attack survivors as you can.
Braham Eirsson: Hey! C'mon over here!
If choosing Rox
Tactician Art: I see. I suppose we'll see you and Rox at Goldenlight Hallow, then.
Tactician Art: Let's move out, shall we? Raise the northern gate!
Rox: I'll be back before you know it. Don't get into too much trouble.
Braham Eirsson: Don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Tactician Art: All right, form up — caravan in the middle.
Tactician Art: We can handle clearing the main path. Go! Find as many attack survivors as you can.
Rox: Let's move out.
Rox: I'm your shadow. Go.
Speaking with Magister Lindsay after killing the enemies
Thank goodness you found us. I was afraid we'd be trapped here. How did you know to look for us?
Talk quest option tango.png
We heard there was trouble at Concordia and came immediately.
How bad are things over there? Have the items in the fort been compromised?
Talk quest option tango.png
I'm afraid so. The Vigil have retreated to the Goldenlight Hallow lab.
What are we going to do now? Our caravans were carrying magical artifacts out here for safekeeping. The Krytan royal locket is among them.
Talk quest option tango.png
The Krytan royal locket?
It's a magical locket. It's said to always have the image of the current heir to the throne of Kryta displayed inside it. It's quite beautiful.
Talk quest option tango.png
It sounds powerful.
Very powerful. And coveted. We move it from fort to fort on an irregular schedule. I probably shouldn't even be telling you about it, but...you're you.
Talk quest option tango.png
My lips are sealed.
Rox: Okay. Time to report to Tactician Art.
Arriving at Goldenlight Hallow
Krewe Leader Seesa: Finally, something not so viney! Assist us at once!
Krewe Leader Krattz: You! Consider yourself honorary lab assistants. Now, protect our lab!
After clearing the lab
Tactician Art: We got as many here as we could, though I'm not confident we're safe yet.
Braham Eirsson: There were wounded all through the hills. This is a bad situation.
Frostbite: (chirp)
Rox: We should probably get over to Fort Salma. We're meeting friends there. Do you have this under control?
Tactician Art: We're good. Thanks for your help. Safe journey.
Speaking with Rox
Do you think Tactician Art will be all right? This attack hot everyone here pretty hard...
If speaking for the first time
Talk quest option tango.png
You two should stay behind to keep looking for survivors. I'll head to Fort Salma.
Good. We've got this covered. How about we meet at Dry Top when we're done? I know Braham's worried about Taimi. We keep forgetting she's just a kid.
Talk quest option tango.png
A kid that was right about Concordia and that warned us about Fort Salma.
Talk end option tango.png
Let me think a moment.
If speaking for the second time
Talk more option tango.png
I'm glad you and Braham are staying here. I'll have Kas and Jory with me at Fort Salma.
Be safe. We should meet back in Dry Top to check in on Taimi after that. We keep forgetting she's just a kid.
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds good. I'm off.
Talk end option tango.png
Let me think a moment.
Speaking with Braham
I don't think we should leave yet. These people are still in shock and unorganized.
Talk end option tango.png
Good point. Let me talk to Rox and see how she feels. We'll figure something out.
If already spoken with Rox
Talk more option tango.png
You're right. I'll head over to Fort Salma. You two stay here.
Good plan. We can meet at Dry Top once this place is stabilized. I'm worried about Taimi.
Talk end option tango.png
All right. See you later then.
Speaking with Tactician Art
It was good to have someone here for us as skilled as I am.
Talk more option tango.png
What will you do now that Concordia is in ruins?
More important people than me will decide that. I hope we rebuild, but it would be an expensive undertaking. This isn't the first attack we've weathered, but it is certainly the worst.
Talk end option tango.png
Well, good luck with that.
If already spoken with Rox
Talk more option tango.png
I've decided that Rox and Braham will stay with you to provide continued security. I'm pressing on to Fort Salma.
Glad to hear it. I feel safer knowing they're with us. We have so many to protect. Good luck at Fort Salma.
Talk end option tango.png
Farewell.
Talk end option tango.png
It was the least I could do.
Speaking with Magister Lindsay
Thank you for all of your help. The Priory will be a long time recovering from this attack.
Talk more option tango.png
Can I ask you more about this caravan?
Of course. We were traveling from Caer Evermore to Fort Concordia with a shipment of tomes and magical items in the care of the Durmand Priory.
Talk more option tango.png
Why weren't they being kept at the Priory itself?
We keep many objects there, but it wouldn't be smart of us to keep all of them in one place. We have magically protected rooms in various forts across Tyria.
Talk more option tango.png
Are the artifacts you were carrying all right?
Some are, but some appear to have had the magic bled right out of them. It's as if they've become normal everyday objects now. No power.
Talk more option tango.png
And the Krytan locket?
Its magical signature is weakened, but it wasn't completely destroyed. We'll return to the Priory with our shipment. I'm sure our scholars will want to study them.
Talk end option tango.png
Best of luck to you.
Talk end option tango.png
I see. Thanks for the information.
Talk end option tango.png
Best of luck to you.
Talk end option tango.png
Best of luck to you.

My Story[edit]

The Concordia Incident loading screen.jpg

While Taimi continued her research at the ley line hub, Rox, Braham, and I investigated the waypoint disruption at Concordia. We found the fort ravaged by jungle tendrils and other creatures. I led the search party that rescued Lindsay and some of her colleagues before fending off the remaining attackers at Golden Hallow lab. Tactician Art mentioned that the vines started sprouting from the ground shortly after a shipment of magical artifacts arrived. I'm not sure of the connection there.

Rox made an offhand comment about Taimi. I think the kid is getting on her nerves.
