Mask 1: Northwatch Descent[edit]

Start from the Waypoint (tango icon).png Northwatch Waypointloading… and head north, towards the exalted outpost. The mask is at an underground level just below the outpost, where the event Collect sediment from the fallen Exalted for Arcanist Mariette takes place.

Mask 2: Bristleback Chasm[edit]

Start from the Waypoint (tango icon).png Eastwatch Waypointloading…, head north towards the forked road. There are some mushrooms to climb near the left entrance; after climbing them, make your way through the Quetzal village, passing the Notice to Trespassers. Continue north towards the tents, passing them, until you reach the end of the large plateau, there will be one more plateau beneath it. Jump down on it and then safely glide downwards towards the Exalted Mask, lying on the platform below, overlooking the area where the Mordrem Vinetooth is fought.

Mask 3: Eastwatch Bluff[edit]

Start from the Waypoint (tango icon).png Eastwatch Waypointloading…, head north towards the forked road.

The Exalted Mask is around the corner situated right above the Eastwatch pylon.

Mask 4: Griffonfall[edit]

Start from the Waypoint (tango icon).png Southwatch Waypointloading…, head southwest to the "A Fungus Among Us" icon (icon is slightly overlapping the "fall" of Griffonfall) - you'll be under it. Continue going westward slightly and make a 3/4 circle wrapping around to the south and then back north at the base of the tree you can see south of the icon and go up the tree trunk via the mushroom stairs past the NPC for "A Fungus Among Us." Follow the trail north and then west. The Exalted Mask is right by the water/waterfall.

Mask 5: Chak Hollow[edit]

Start from the Waypoint (tango icon).png Chak Hollow Waypointloading…, head west to the "razed Nuhoch village" which is inside some very large, hollowed out tree trunks.

Mask 6: Morwood Wilds[edit]

Start from the Waypoint (tango icon).png Chak Hollow Waypointloading… and follow the SW path that leads to Morwood Wilds. There are two vine gates that block entrance to Morwood Wilds and the location of the mask. It can only be reached after the event Event swords (tango icon).png Escort Exalted Sage Manssir to Morwood Wilds (80) has been completed (if you try to glide into it while it's closed, you will be automatically teleported outside). The mask is next to the pylon.
