|1||Parable of Balthazar, Page 1||Item||Trophy||Hint: Seek those who bring life near Balthazar.|
From the northwest shrine, head west into the corner and jump up onto the curving stonework.
From the top of the arch, glide across to the ledge with the pair of sylvari and the oakheart. The parable entry is propped up against the wall.
"Walking upon a battlefield strewn with the dead, Balthazar, the god of war, blessed each of the corpses for their valor, until he came across one who had not fought but had cowered."
|2||Parable of Balthazar, Page 2||Item||Trophy||Hint: Where the wall towers above the queen.|
Using the updraft at the pool of lava just south of the heart marker, glide north into the circular alcove above the heart NPC.
"Balthazar could smell the stink of fear, and so he reached into the man and pulled forth his soul. He held it in place as he scrutinized it."
|3||Parable of Balthazar, Page 3||Item||Trophy||Hint: Where the lava flows, upward you must go.|
Again use an updraft from a lava pool to reach the another circular alcove, a bit west of the previous alcove.
"The soul was no more courageous in death than it had been in life, and it trembled and whimpered. It bowed its spine and hid its face."
|4||Parable of Balthazar, Page 4||Item||Trophy||Hint: By where fire meets illusion.|
The parable is leaning against the northern wall, between two large boulders, east of Balthazar's vein.
"'You,' said the god, 'do not belong here. You sully these brave men and women who died in honorable combat. You will cower behind them no more.'"
|5||Parable of Balthazar, Page 5||Item||Trophy||Hint: By where the vein bleeds.|
From the fourth page, turn around and walk to the southern edge of the plateau. The fifth page is about two ledges down, and once again nestled against the north wall.
If you miss it and drop too far down you can use the updraft to try again.
"Balthazar folded the soul, bent it and broke it, crushed it until it was hidden inside his clasped hands. Then, he opened his mouth wide, and shoved the soul in, consuming it whole."
|6||Parable of Balthazar, Page 6||Item||Trophy||Hint: By the base of the arm, near what is broken and wildly worn.|
The last page is located on the southern side of Pilaster Rock, tucked away in a small alcove beneath the large shipwreck on the world map.
To get to it, clamber up the steep barnacled rock from the west and then jump down to behind the skeleton of a small ship.
"Once it was gone, Balthazar shouted to the dead, 'You carried this coward when he lived. Now, I carry him, for he serves as my reminder that strength and courage are never to be taken for granted.'"
