The best time to do a meta event is when everyone else is doing it, too. Therefore, we highly recommend you complete these meta event achievements ASAP.
Living World Return is a set of achievements with valuable rewards. These achievements will be permanently available in Side Stories. However, several meta events are required to complete them.
Experience shows that as time passes, people move on to other projects, and it gets harder and harder to successfully complete the meta.
The Silverwastes: Return to Echoes of the Past and Tangled Paths
Reconquer the Hidden Depths: Collect key fragments from lesser nightmare pods, use these to create a nightmare key, and unlock the greater nightmare pod in the middle of Hidden Depths. This area is only open after the map-wide Vinewrath meta event is completed.
Bloodstone Fen: Return to Out of the Shadows
Hablion’s Revenge: Defeat the Ghostly Justicar in Colusseum of the Faithful.
Ember Bay: Return to Rising Flames
Revenge of Vermignus: Slay the lava wurm Vermignus in Fractured Caldera. This is the final step of the Ahadd’s golem group event.
Lake Doric: Return to The Head of the Snake
Reconquer the Trap Maze: You don’t actually need other people to help with this one. It is not necessary to clear the area or complete any active events. You only need to complete Noran’s Renown Heart to unlock him as a vendor, so you can buy the key. However, various events can spawn large numbers of mobs which can be difficult to wade through on your own.
I recommend AyinMaiden’s YouTube video walkthrough for this puzzle.
Revenge of the High Sage: Defeat the Champion Harathi High Sage at the end of the group event at Watchtower Cliffs.
TIP: If you have a smaller group, you can skip killing all the centaurs on the route up. Instead, hug the north side of the map and use either Skyscale or Griffon/Springer to climb up the west side of Fallen Watchtower. The High Sage appears in the center of the tower.
