Q: Awakened foes in Mount Maelstrom?

Right before, I was in Mount Maelstrom area, in the Gauntlet Gulch zone and found on my way a group of Awakened foes (with one vet.)! I did fight them and got typical Elona drops. Huh... Since when do we have Awakened wandering in original Tyria area and dropping Elona stuff? Did I miss something?

Thanks for information. :)

    They are there so players without path of fire can finish the Halloween achievement that requires killing joko's minions (Ancient Grudge)

  • There's a few places around Tyria that people can farm Awakened for Halloween.

    They’ve been a couple of threads mentioning them. They’ve seem to have been put in with Halloween, maybe for the achievement to kill 150 Awakened. They are also a few in Sparkfly Fen, east of the Brooloonu Waypoint.

    Ancient Grudge – 10 AP
    Kill 150 of Joko’s minions. Any awakened mobs will work. Go to a map like Desolation and just kill them en mass

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    One other thing: don't kill the defilers. They spawn mummies periodically; it's much quicker to let them live than to wait for a whole group to spawn.

    I say it is an Invasion!
    Praise Joko!
