GW2 Mordrem Invasion Event Guide

The Mordrem are invading Brisban Wildlands, Kessex Hills, and Diessa Plateau.  Here is everything you need to know about this weekends meta-event.

Events

Events start on the 30 minute mark and last for a total of 30 minutes, ending at the :00 mark.  Rewards for participation are given out at the end of the 30 minute time frame.  Every hour the Mordrem invade a different zone.

  • 8:30 am PST – Brisban Wildlands
  • 9:30 am PST – Kessex Hills
  • 10:30 am PST – Diessa plateau
  • 11:30 am PST – Break from the madness
  • 12:30 pm PST – The cycle repeats again, starting in Brisban Wildlands

As you complete events within the inaded map, you will get a stacking buff named Invasion Defender.  This buff stacks in intensity each time an event you participated in finishes.  I found it best to jump between events.  I ended up getting a lot of bronze medals, but I stacked my Invasion Defender buff up quickly and to 20+ doing this for the maximum rewards.

Make sure to not log out or change maps while doing the event.  If either of these things happen, you will lose your progress on the Invasion Defender buff.

 

Reward Distribution

Rewards are awarded at the completion of the 30 minute Invasion window.  Depending on how many stacks of Invasion Defender you got, you will get different levels of completion reward.

There is a daily reward on each map (So 3 total) which contains 20 Mordrem Blooms plus a Vine-Covered Crate, which contains one of ‘Memories of Scarlet Box’ or ‘Arid Dusty Satchel’.

In addition to the bonus per map per day, you get the following reward upon completion of each event regardless of how many times you do it in a day.

  • For 1-4 Stacks of Invasion Defender at completion, you will be awarded 0 Mordrem Blooms.
  • For 5-9 Stacks of Invasion Defender at completion, you will be awarded 5 Mordrem Blooms.
  • For 10-19 Stacks of Invasion Defender at completion, you will be awarded 10 Mordrem Blooms.

Guild Wars 2 Twisted Marionette Boss Guide

The Twisted Marionette event occurs  in Lornar’s Pass every 2 hours.  You know it’s about to start when a 5-minute timer pops up in the upper right corner of your screen, under the living world event box.  The False River Waypoint is near the event location.

 

There are 5 different paths, or lanes that must be dealt with in order to be successful.  The players in the map must divide themselves into 5 groups in order to take on the Marionette boss.

The Fight

Each lane has 2 phases.  A tower defense phase, and a mini-boss kill phase.

Phase 1

During the tower defense phase, players must defeat waves of enemies and not let any through to the red barred gates.  If mobs get through the gate, the cannon gets charged.  When it gets full, you fail the event.  Some mobs spawn right next to the gate, so have a few players stand back and guard it.  The rest of the lane should be taking care of oncoming enemies. You will be able to equip the lanes with arrow carts, barricades, and Golem suites.  These are built via repair hammers found at the start and end of each lane.  In addition to regular mobs that spawn in the lanes, you’ll be faced with champion Marionette mobs.  These will run through your barricades and must be taken down quickly.

Each lane gets to phase 2, but it goes in order.  Lane 1 gets it first, followed by lane 2, followed by lane 3, etc… etc…

Phase 2

Phase 2 occurs when the red magical gate turns green.  Players will pass through it and have to fight a Marionette boss on a circular platform.  This champion must be defeated in order to sever a chain.  While you’re fighting, the giant Twisted Marionette will telegraph attacks onto your play space.  Dodge these at all costs as they are severely deadly.  Once you defeat the marionette boss, the power regulator becomes attack able.  Destroy it before time runs out or face a giant laser beam of death that will kill everyone in the area at the end of the event.
