For the benefit of those that don't Reddit, this top post links to threads for hero point trains and other acquisition trains that are run regularly in the NA region. For the month of July 2019, there are currently three.
Reminder: I am not the organizer; I'm just posting so that you can find these events in game.

This will be a full day event,
I will be playing on my Chrono 'Emi Nyaa'. Squad will be up at 11 CDT exact. The first 10 minutes will be reserved for whisper invites only. Once it hits XX:10, the squad will be up in LFG → Open World → Verdant Brink. This is on a first-come-first-serve basis, so please don’t spam my chat if the squads are full!

Feel free to add me on Emikadon.8542 in game or Emi#6622 on Discord. If you have any questions, you’re welcome to whisper, mail, or private message me at any time, and I'll do my best to respond. Keep in mind that once the train starts, it’ll be hard to respond to individual people, so please be understanding if I don’t reply.

This is open to Free to play, Old players, and New. It is NOT 100% map completion its more around 65-85% of each map we do. Example we don't do the hearts mostly due to time constraints. I'll be leading it on Foot. (Brother Drake) So you can bring mounts/Gliders if you so choose. Or not!

Please be aware this event is Role Play friendly. So you will see people talking In Character. Its mostly easy going stuff... Mostly.

To those in Australia, New Zealand, remember that your ahead of the (N.A.) by about a day! So our Friday is your Saturday! So, Saturday when we start is your Sunday!

We do take a break every 2-3 hours, for about 15 minutes. Mostly for my Sanity. We normally take them in major cities or nice rest spots. I believe that's everything!

Kixri's Monthly Griffon Train

Original Post
Contact: Kixri aka Kixri.4078
Start: 2 Sept 9:30 PM Eastern

On Monday July 1st at 9:30 PM Eastern Standard Time, I will be leading my Monthly Griffon Collection Train through all of the Path of Fire maps (NA). We are only doing Griffon Roosts, Eggs, Legendary Corrupted Facet and Shadi’s Equipment Collection. No Hearts, we only do Events if they fit into the time frame of the run. Next run: September 2nd 9:30PM Eastern Standard Time

For the train, please make sure you have:

  • Path of Fire Story Complete
  • Open Skies Collections unlocked (Visit the Remains of the Last Spearmarshal to start the collection)
  • Spearmarshal’s Plea
  • Springer Mount with High Vault (mastery rank 3)
  • Temple of Kormir Waypoint [&BHUKAAA=]
  • Augury’s Shadow Waypoint [&BFMKAAA=]
  • The Scourgeway Waypoint [&BHMKAAA=]

List of Waypoints not necessarily needed as you can move pretty fast on mounts but will be extremely helpful to having everyone moving quickly!

  • Highjump Ranch Waypoint [&BJ0KAAA=]
  • Direct Delve Waypoint [&BKQKAAA=]
  • Olishar’s Oasis Camp Waypoint [&BCgKAAA=]
  • The Darklands Waypoint [&BKMKAAA=]

This will take roughly 2 hours. I will try to wait at each location for about a minute for stragglers to keep up but I can’t guarantee waiting as we have a full schedule. I will be advertising in the Crystal Oasis LFG at 9:30pm and using those 30 minutes to prepare and answer questions. I will be playing on my Firebrand Luxawna and will have 1-2 Mesmers helping with portals. Our first location will be the Temple of Kormir Waypoint [&BHUKAAA=] and then Killing the Legendary Corrupted Facet

Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    Updated with known information for August (i.e. not much).


    Please let me know if there's a monthly or annual "all welcome" event that you'd like me to add to the list.
