Deliver collected shield anomalies by gliding near the collection device.

— Adventure objective

On Wings of Gold is an adventure that starts on a ledge found high above the exalted city of Tarir. Players must collect shield anomalies, which are small little yellow balls of light that chime when collected, and deliver them back to the Anomaly Collection Device.

Getting there[edit]

Getting there will require Updraft Use (Gliding Level 2). Starting from Northgate, head east along the uppermost balcony to the very end. Looking below to the southeast, a tower with updrafts behind it will be visible. Glide slightly to the left of it, and land on the ledge with a Tropical Bird. Proceed by gliding south into successive updrafts to reach the adventure banner to the southeast. Two Vigil NPCs stand watch next to the banner on a vine covered ledge.


Shield anomalies are collected by gliding into them. Your buff bar will have an Cold Light.png Unnamed effect to show how many you've collected, but have not turned in. Getting within range of the Anomaly Collection Device (represented by a gold bubble around the device) will hand in your anomalies and count them toward your adventure total. Players can save time by collecting a large number of anomalies before returning the Collection Device. There are also various updrafts in the area that players can use to make collection easier.

The adventure will end if the time runs out, the player is defeated, or if 30 anomalies are collected.
