This guide requires you to be a patron in worldofmoudi´s patreon: www.patreon.com/worldofmoudi . This guide covers following:

- Recommended Chromie talents

- Items to choose from Sands of Time

- Walkthrough and which order to take portals/Dragonshrines


 

Side quest/Side task

After completing a Dragonshrine location, you can go back to the Dragonshrine locations (next time you enter the scenario) and kill the mini boss directly, this rewards you reputation and a Sand of Time item.

The Ambassadors in the tower can give side quests that rewards Sands of Time items.
These side quests require you to kill elite mobs.


 

Item: Sands of Time

You can loot an item called Sand of Time that drops from mobs and quest rewards.
Using this item opens a new tab that enables you to choose 1 of two rewards.
You cannot stack up and save the items for next time you enter the scenario, they disappear.

  • Extra time (Stolen Time).
    this can be +10 sec, or +20 sec, or +30 sec.

  • Time-Lost Keepsake Box
    Keepsakes boxes contain powerful items that significantly reduce difficulty of Chronoportal challenges.

    Examples of powerful items

    - Stratholme Gate Key
    This key is used to open the left side gate in Stratholme. Meaning, you don´t need to do  the pre-quests to enter the door on the right side. Instead, you come to the Cocoon that Chromie is inside almost directly.
    There are spider adds that you need to kill instead. 

    - Brimstone Beacon
    This item summons the Fiery Behemoth in Hyal instantly.
    Fiery Behemoth is the last big add that comes after all waves of adds. Meaning, you dont need to kill all adds in all waves which saves ALOT of time.

    Choosing this will make a drake complete an entire Dragonshrine (random of which one it is).
