A Suspicious Location revealed atop Phoenix Roost in Lions Arch.

This device detects power caches by attuning its frequency to one of the four types of matter: aqueous, gaseous, etheric, and corporeal. Activation requires at least one piece of candy corn.

— In-game description

Candy-Powered Matter Meter Mk2 is a device used during Shadow of the Mad King to locate the stories of the Mad Memoires, and Mad Memoires: Complete Edition. Using the device consumes a Piece of Candy Corn and will give you a bundle that functions similar to a Conjure, with a unique set of skills.



Magister Tassi

Your Very Own Candy-Powered Matter Meter

Enclosed is your candy-powered matter meter, developed by the Durmand Priory (inspired by the College of Statics).

Each meter is powered by candy corn. The elusive material has close ties to the Mad King's realm which leaks over into Tyria at this time of year.

Using a kernel as a focus, you can scan four different frequencies: aqueous, gaseous, etheric, and corporeal. There are suspicious locations on all four frequencies, and it's up to you to discover them.

Try it with the little ghost standing right next to me. She's hiding behind an etheric veil, so use the etheric frequency!

You'll notice, on your journey, that each page from the Mad King's past contains clues on how to proceed. Pay close attention to these clues, for they are the only way you will piece together the past and complete our volume of the Mad Memoires.

We're missing six stories. Now get moving! We only have so long before the energies of the Mad Realm vanish again!

  • Additional ones can be acquired by talking to Magister Tassi if you do not currently have one in your inventory.


You will gain a Uses Remaining effect lasting 60 minutes with 4 charges. Using any of the scan skills will send out a sonar pulse and reveal Suspicious Locations if they are close by. As you only have 4 charges, you can use each scan once before losing the bundle.
