The Desolation Hero Points in GW2

Are you an Elementalist trying to unlock the Weaver, or a Guardian trying to unlock the Firebrand? Well, regardless of which class you play, you will have to earn enough Hero Points to unlock your class’s Elite Specialization for Path of Fire.

In this guide, we will go over all the Hero Points in The Desolation, with step-by-step instructions on how to get each one and which waypoint to take to get there.

GW2 The Desolation Hero Points

There are 6 Hero Points in The Desolation. They can all be done solo as you won’t be fighting any Champions. You will only stumble upon Veterans who are easy to defeat, even for the newer players.

Before we begin, I recommend that you have the Jackal and the Springer to help you get to those challenges faster.

1. Awakened Wanderer

  • Location: Poisoned Outcrops
  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Waypoint: The Scourgeway Waypoint [&BHMKAAA=]
  • Instructions: Get on your Jackal and jump on the mountain facing the waypoint. Keep going straight till you stumble upon the hero challenge. Speak with then defeat the Awakened Wanderer to earn The Desolation Hero Points.

2. Shanna the Valorous

4. Gnarled Tree

  • Location: Broken Shelf
  • Difficulty: Medium

6. Broken Egg

Broken Egg

  • Location: Acrid Springs
  • Difficulty: Medium
