Getting there[edit]

This Maguuma Mastery Insight is normally only accessible after Event boss (tango icon).png [Group Event] Defeat the Pyroclastic Jade Construct (80) has successfully completed, which causes the lava to solidify and cool such that you can stand on it while communing. From Waypoint (map icon).png Castaway Circus Waypoint, take the thermal tube just West from it and hop off just before hitting the 3rd tube.


Before communing and accepting the mastery point
By reaching this point in Tyria, you've demonstrated your mastery in navigating the world.

After communing
You have reached a locus of power.
(If Aurora II: Empowering is active, you have a Xunlai Electrum Ingot in your inventory, and you have not yet received Pyroclastic Electrum)
Talk give option tango.png Infuse a Xunlai electrum ingot with the power of this location.
Talk end option tango.png You've gained all you can from this place of power.

Related achievements[edit]


  • To Infuse a Xunlai electrum ingot with the power of this location, players can jump into the lava if the Jade Construct has not been defeated. Players will need to be quick, and they will burn to death but they don't have to wait on the mission completion.
  • You can jump in the lava against the rock to the left of the point to stand in a spot without the burn effect but still in range of the mastery point. This way you can commune while the lava is still active.
  • While on the quest Old Foes, Old Ghosts, after collecting all the mursaat armor pieces, you can walk in the lava safely and commune with the mastery point.
