Note that completing the collection will only allow you to unlock the skin for one of the three weight sets. To acquire the other sets you will need to purchase them from the Primeval Steward in Tomb of the Primeval Kings for gold and Elegy Mosaics (obtained from legendary bounties) after completing the collection.

First you will need to get a bunch of Tales by doing the events listed below. After that, you can visit Elisa the traveling Historian to turn your Tales into Blessings to finish the collection. You must have the Tales in your inventory when you visit Elisa so don’t throw them out.

You have to complete this event and stop the Mordant Graveraiser from running away to obtain this tale.

Upon the successful completion of this event, one of more junundu worms will be raised and will attack the Awakened sieges at Fort Huduh and Forged Firebase. Complete the meta (you can fail the event as long you recapture Fort Huduh) and it will give you this Tale of Courage.
Tale of Judgement
In the Court of the Dead PoI is a chain of events that involves the High Judges. Initially there is an event to Maintain order to help the court reach rulings on the Vabbian dead. About 10 minutes after that event completes, there are a series of 3 events involving the High Judges, each about 10 minutes apart after the previous one finishes. Do any of the events and you will receive Tale of Judgement on completion.

Week 1 – Crystal Oasis
Week 2 – Elon Riverlands
Week 3 – The Desolation
Week 4 – Desert Highlands
Week 5 – Domain of Vabbi
You will need to collect 5 drops from mostly champion djinns for this collection. After you collected them, you can go to the Lair of Zommoros in Vabbi to finish off the collection. You can safely consume the item without needing to have them in your inventory for the Lair of Zommoros.
Dwarf-Cut Adamantine – Desert Highlands
For this item you need to kill the Legendary bounty Ellutherius Wintergust that spawns in the Palace of Aban.
Lost Emerald – Crystal Oasis
Do the hero point by Sifuri Sand Seas
Elon Sapphire – Elon Riverlands
Defeat Champion Adal, Unyielding Fragment. He is a bounty target in Elon Riverlands. Pick up the bounty from Augury’s Shadow Waypoint.
Tormented Tourmaline – The Desolation
Kill the Elder Air Djinn in Posioned Outcrops to receive the Tormented Tourmaline. He is a champion that teleports around and requires you to find him and break his CC bar under a time limit numerous times during the fight.
Royal Onxy– Domain of Vabbi
For this you need to defeat the four grand elder djinns in Hanging Gardens. To spawn them, you need to defeat the 8 veteran djinns in Hanging Gardens first. Each one you defeated will lit up a torch in the central area of the Garden (#8 is below the central area). You can do this part solo but you need to kill the vets fast as the torches despawn after a while.
Once all 8 torches are lit up, the four champion djinns will spawn. Having 5 or more players is recommended for this part. To talk to them and start the fight, you must have all 8 masteries from this map that involve the djinns (they are listed above). Luckily you only need one person in your squad with this and the event will begin. Defeat the four djinns (sometimes they may bug out and give you credit after defeating only 2) and don’t forget to talk to the Grandmaster Elder Dkinn Emine for your Royal Onxy.
Lair of Zommoros
Make sure you have 5 Amalgamated Gemstones in your inventory and go to the Domain of Vabbi to do the event to open up the Lair of Zommoros. You will need a minimum of 3 players for this event or it won’t even start.
You will need to escort Explorer Flynn to inside the lair. There are two doors you need to open, each with a set of three pressure plates that must be activated. The first set have pressure plates around and above the door while the second set have pressure plates undernearth the bridge leading to the door.
Once inside the second door, you can now convert the various jewels. It is important that you do not do the event to collect unidentified djinn artfiacts as doing soon can kick you out of the lair quickly, not giving you enough time to convert all the jewels for the collection. Inside each of the smaller elemental side rooms is a cloud staircase that leads to an orb in the air. Interact with each orb for the collection.
For the Dominant Royal Onxy, you will need to interact with the big orb high above the middle of the first room. To do that you have to go through the stairs on the earth elemental room and there will be an opening with another set of stairs/platform that leads up.
You will need to collect 5 drops from doing meta events in each of the 5 maps in Path of Fire for this collection.
Guardian Elemental Statue – Desert Highlands
There is a meta event Search for Buried Treasure that starts every 2 hours. During this meta event, Buried chests you find in the area will become Superior Buried Chests. Use your treasure hunting kit in your inventory, go to the blue area it highlights and locate a Buried Treasure. This will turn into a Superior Buried Treasure and it will grant you the item required for the collection.
Guardian Sand Lion Statue – Crystal Oasis
For this you just need to participate in the Casino Blitz event that occurs around Amnoon city . The Sand Lion Statue can be purchased from the Casino rewards vendor for 1 Casino coin.
Guardian Hydra Statue – Elon Riverlands
This involves the The Path of Ascension meta event around Augury Rock in Elon Riverlands. Once the Augury Rock closes, there will be a Disperse the wild magic that escaped from Augury Rock event. Complete this and the final event of the meta will spawn, involving the Doppelganger that can spawn anywhere on the map and clone a player. Defeat the Doppelganger for the final step of the meta for the item.
Guardian Junundu Statue – The Desolation
This item involves the Maws of Torment meta. You will need to defeat the Legendary Forged Demolisher that spawns at end of the meta. Once the meta starts, the Ruptured Heart area of The Desolation will be three lanes. You need to help the Order of Shadow Agents to destroy the realm portals at each of the three lanes to spawn the Legendary Forged Demolisher (don’t need to kill the Realm Keeper that spawns after the portal’s destruction). Luckily with people doing the Realm-Portal Spiker achievement, you might be able to find a squad on LFG that does the meta regularly and join them as these squads usually destroy all three portals and finish off with the Forged Demolisher.
Guardian Sunspear Statue – Domain of Vabbi
For this item you will need to complete the Serpent’s Ire meta which is quite difficult. The meta occurs every 2 hours at Grand Court of Sebelkeh on the NE corner of the map. There are three stages to the meta. For the first stage you will need to hunt down Veteran Branded Zealots which is just a matter of having everyone spread out and search for them and zerg them once one has been located.
The second part of the meta is the most difficult due to the need for tons of CC skills. Typically the squad is divided into five groups, each on one of the five Branded Forgotten Zealots. They are immune to damage until you break their large CC bar and you only get a few seconds to damage them before you need to do the CC again. You have to kill all 5 Zealots before the Detonation bar reaches 0 or the event fails.
If you manage to succeed in the second stage, third stage is relatively easier. You need to defeat a duo of Ysshi Hessani and Pek Rakt Grag with the caveat that if you kill Pek Rakt Grag first, he will get resurrected to half life. Once Ysshi Hessani get low he will periodically go immune and you have to defeat the sparks before they reach him or they will amplify his damage. Luckily you have 20 minutes so there is time for some mistakes. You will receive the item on successful completion of the meta.
