Shadowy Remnants are a type of trophy item that drops from various Nightmare-type creatures in western Tyria. It is said that the Shadowy Remnants allows anything it is rubbed on to be temporary invisible; however, Nicholas the Traveler claims it is a false rumor.

Acquisition[edit]

Farming[edit]

Talmark Wilderness[edit]

Shadowy Remnants Farming (Talmark Wilderness).jpg

Enter either from Tears of the Fallen or The Black Curtain and travel towards the other exit. Stay in the green grassy areas and range left and right to trigger all the Fog Nightmare pop-ups. When you reach the opposite exit, zone out and back to reset spawns. Stay away from the sandy areas which are full of Bog Scales but few/no Fog Nightmares. There are Ancient Oakhearts along the way and some large mobs of Forest Minotaurs in the south to deal with too. If your inventory gets full, Artisan Sivan can buy your items.

The Black Curtain[edit]

Leaving from the Temple of the Ages, head south and then southeast. Kill all the pop-ups that you find, looping around to the north. Either rezone using the portal or start again from the outpost. An example build can be found at PvX.
