  • Kill Forged enemies that appear around the Northern Maw. When killed, they will leave behind Realm Residue.
  • Interact to pick up a Realm Residue. Your character can pick one up at a time, which can be tracked by the Realm Residue.png Realm Residue icon the buff bar.
  • With the effect active, run to the barrel of Portal Spikes, and interact with it.
  • Next, run back to the portal and interact with it when the prompt reads Spike the portal.






Event start
Watcher Akuchi: By Kormir, the portals activated faster than we thought!
Watcher Akuchi: Forged reinforcements incoming!
Demolitionist Afia: There's no time. I have to leave now if we're going to have a chance to close the portal.
Watcher Akuchi: Demolitionist, I hope you're ready. We need to shut that portal down!
Demolitionist Afia: I've got the spike ready. I just need an escort.
Watcher Akuchi: Good luck. And remember, you never fight alone.
During the escort
Watcher Akuchi: The demolitionist is heading to close the portal at the Maw. Can you help?
Demolitionist Afia: The Forged defenses are weakened. This is our chance. Follow me.
Demolitionist Afia: What's taking the other demolistionists so long? All three portals need to close.
Demolitionist Afia: Cover me. We have to reach the Maw and use this spike.
Elite Forged Officer: The portal will soon activate!
After arriving at the Maw
Demolitionist Afia: Forged are pouring out of the portal. We need to close it!
Demolitionist Afia: We're almost to the Maw. Keep going!
Demolitionist Afia: Form a defensive perimeter while I take care of the portal.
Demolitionist Afia: Don't let anything get close.
Demolitionist Afia: The other portals should've fallen by now. I wonder how the other demolistionists are doing.
When the Realm Keeper spawns
Demolitionist Afia: Finally, we disrupted the portal. That should do it.
Demolitionist Afia: That Forged cannonade is keeping the portal open. Take it down!
Demolitionist Afia: I'm taking heavy damage!
Demolitionist Afia: Get these Forged off me!
Demolitionist Afia: I need healing!
Demolitionist Afia: Help! I don't know how long I can last.
Demolitionist Afia: Rally to my position!
Event success
Demolitionist Afia: Finally, all three portals have fallen. Great work.
Demolitionist Afia: Looks like we've stopped all three portals, at least for now.
Event failure
Demolitionist Afia: No! We've run out time. We failed.
Demolitionist Afia: Forged reinforcements are pouring in. Fall back!
