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 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.
