Snargle Goldclaw Gets Out Of His Slump In Guild Wars 2: End Of Dragons ...

Snargle Goldclaw is a multibillionaire feature writer for Guild Wars 2, but after writing for such a long time, he''s struck a wall and has fallen into a slump. Through the Character Growth skill, you can help Snargle recover from this depression and continue his career.

In this guide, we will discuss how to complete the Character Growth achievement. Generally, you will need to travel around Cantha and report back to Snargle several times with your findings. First, let''s look at the prerequisites before beginning this achievement.

Prerequisites To Complete

Prior to aiding Snargle Goldclaw out of his slump, you will need to complete Authorial Intent. This is a short achievement that requires you to speak with Snargle in Seitung Province.

Check out our publication guide on how to complete Authorial Intent. It''s important to listen to all he has to say; if you leave early, you will not receive this achievement.

Starting Character Growth

Once you have completed your Authorial Intent, head to Arborstone and meet with Snargle Goldclaw at the address indicated on the map above. This is Arborstone''s second floor, in the library.

You must have Arborstone''s third mastery level unlocked. This is the mastery for Entertaining Amenities, which contains books on the second floor. To quickly reach this mastery level, you may participate in events around Cantha. Depart yourself from Mastery Insights around all four maps.

Once you meet with him, he will direct you to the following three steps.

Speaking With Mamoru

Mamoru will tell you to find Saya, who is involved in two archery events. This will reward you with the honor of this step.

Many players have reported a flaw in this portion of the achievement, where you only need to complete the first archery event. This does not affect the step too much, but you will not be required to participate in the next group event.

Retrieving a Toy Bell In Seitung Harbor

To complete this step, you will need to take part in the ''Help find and return the lost toys to the children'' event.

This is going on in Seitung Province, near the Village Waypoint. In general, this event will start around the dawn. If it''s not active when you arrive, you may be able to wait a little before it can begin again.

Purchasing a Teapot

The Red Duck Teahouse, located in New Kaineng City, will be available for purchase. The location is now listed on the map above.

The teapot will cost five gold if you don''t have the time to spare. However, you may also wait for the ''Recover tea crates from the Jade Brotherhood'' event to start. Lady Kanda will give you the teapot for free.

Return to Snargle to begin the next three steps once the process has passed.

Speaking with Eunjoo In Dragon''''s End

In Dragon''s End, Speaker Eunjoo is shown on the map above.

To complete this step of the achievement, you will need to complete the group event ''Defeat the summoned creature before it can escape.'' This can be completed before the meta event starts. If the meta is active, you will either need to wait for it to finish, or create a new map that isn''t participating in the meta.

Purchasing A Painting Of Empress Ihn

For this step of the achievement, you will need to go back to Seitung Province and meet with a painter who can be found near the Imperial Overlook point of interest. Here, you will need to purchase the painting for five silver.

Obtaining A Sprout Of The Forever Tree

From the Echovald Wilds and take the Forever Tree point of interest. To get here, head southeast from the Kropa Waypoint.

You may participate in the event ''Protect the Silvari until the ritual is complete,'' according to the Mysterious Warden.

Return to Arborstone and discuss with Snargle once more after doing this.

Obtaining Incense From Sun-Hi

This is a longer part of the achievement, requiring you to locate three objects that can be obtained bycompleting three separate event chains. Below, you may discover the exact location of the events as well.

  • Axe
    • Tangled Altar
  • Mask
    • Court of Song
  • Bow
    • Aoi''''s Perch
  • Tangled Altar
  • Court of Song
  • Aoi''''s Perch
  • Tangled Altar
  • Court of Song
  • Aoi''''s Perch

Head to Sun-Hi to earn credit for this task after finishing these events. You may find Sun-Hi at the address indicated above.

Obtaining A Copy Of Ja-Wen''''s Masterwork

Pour this step of the achievement, head to Seitung Province, east of the Monastery Temple point of interest. Here, you will need to complete the "Subdue the Purist operatives!" event.

If you are playing alone, this event is challenging, so make sure to have a few people with you. We encourage you to apologise for the event in the comments so that other players may contact you.

Speaking With Bonnie Kunderah

This is a simple step that requires you to locate and speak with Bonnie Kunderah. To do so, head to the second floor of the Ministry of Archives point of interest in New Kaineng City. Bonnie is seen sitting behind a desk.

Return to Snargle in Arborstone after finishing this step, to get the final two tasks.

Obtaining A Jade Statue

Head to Dragon''s End and meet with Yenna at the location you want to find a Jade Statue.

After finishing the ''Extract jade core samples and deposit them for a safekeeping'' event, please contact Yenna to receive credit for this portion of the achievement. If this event is not successful, you will only need to wait a short period of time.

Helping Sagan Malaya

Afterwards, head to Echovald Wilds and visit the Dredge point of interest. Here, you may participate in the event''s ''Gather fungal residue to stabilize Verasha, the Speaker defector.''

This is a long event chain, and it is quite difficult to complete it. We strongly recommend finding a group of people to complete this event chain.

Some players have reported bug fixes for this event chain. On occasion, the event will not begin, and the associated NPCs will just stand around. If this happens, leave the Echovald Wilds and then return.

Returning To Snargle Goldclaw

After all of the tasks ended, head to Snargle Goldclaw and meet him. He will be standing with Bonnie Kunderah and having a conversation. After all of the discussions, the achievement will be complete.

Following your character growth, you will receive the following rewards.

  • 15x Achievement Points
  • 1x Mastery Point
  • Well-Rounded Title
