Portal BreakerComplete the series of [Group Event] Defeat the invading Awakened (30) events in any map. You will likely need to complete most, if not the entire series of events to get credit. Completing one or two in the series will likely not get you credit, you must complete multiple events during an invasion.
This achievement can be repeated, with a cap of 30 achievement points (or 10 completions).
Zone DefenseComplete the [Group Event] Defeat the invading Awakened (30) events in each of the maps: Queensdale, Gendarren Fields, Wayfarer Foothills, Plains of Ashford, Metrica Province, and Caledon Forest.
After completing one of the invasions, you will receive a mail from Mechanist Ninn asking to meet you in your Home instance (any of them will do, even if it's not your race's). He'll ask you to retrieve 50 Mithril Ingots, 3 Charged Quartz Crystals, a Resonance Tuner, an Etheric Tank, and a Gate Alchemeter. You can also speak to him about some background on the portals.
Gather the materials and collect the three items.
- Resonance Tuner - Speak to Glaxx at Ulta Metamagicals Waypoint — . He should send you north to Enrav Exploration Post and you can retrieve it from the Asura Device Container there.
- Etheric Tank - Speak to Danka in the asura lab at Valance Tutory Waypoint — . She will sell you the Etheric Tank for 2 .
- Gate Alchemeter - Speak to Gate Operator Stebben at the Asura Gate in Stronghold of Ebonhawke (closest waypoint: Hawkgates Waypoint — ). You should be sent into Last Stand Shelter to retrieve it from the Asura Device Container in the back of the cave.
Return to Ninn with all the items and talk to him to hand them over. He will ask for a day to build the device for you (daily reset). (Note: If your character is an Engineer, an Asura, or a Charr with the Iron Legion biography selected, you will have the opportunity to help him build the device, in which case you receive it immediately instead of waiting for daily reset).
Once finished, Ninn will give you the Phasic Distortion Reader.
