Defeat the Mordrem Vinetenders on the ledges around the Exalted Pylon to remove the shield around the Mordrem Breacher so you can damage it. The Vinetenders respawn very quickly to heal and shield the Mordrem Breacher, so it may be difficult to complete this event with too few people. However, the Vinetenders don't seem to heal, so you can lower the health of each group to finish all off in a shorter time frame, giving more time before they respawn to kill the Breacher. You can use Bouncing Mushrooms to get up to the ledges quickly. Two mushrooms on the eastern side will get you to one platform while the southern one places you near a second spawn area. The bouncing mushroom on the second layer will bounce you to the mastery point rather than the third spawn. Starting from the southern group allows for fastest movement between the three.





During event
Sage Korin: Take out the breacher, and I shall activate the pylon.
Sage Korin: Take care of the vine tenders before the breacher.
Upon being revived
Sage Korin: Thank you. I continue to perform my duty.
When a breacher respawns
Sage Korin: Another breacher! Take it down.
Event completion
Sage Korin: The pylon has been activated. One more enchanted armor to aid in the defense of Tarir.
Enchanted Armor: Eastwatch not detected.
Enchanted Armor: Rerouting to Eastgate.
Sage Korin: Eastwatch was ravaged by a Vinetooth. I am all that remains now.
Sage Korin: I must continue to do my duty.
