    Short Description

    Seek out the rift Golden Cascade and collect Golden Cores from Gildstone Deposits, shatter Charged Boulders to kill Unbound Fragments, and unleash Imbued Monoliths to kill Akalan Parasites. You'll find this rift most often in the Dunes of Akala, but I've given you a lure in case you need of it.


    Despite our attempts to thwart her, Akala is now harnessing the pure power of the Plane of Earth, even going so far as to drain the titan Qaerthus. Disrupt Akala's means of storing this power, then destroy the abominations running her harvesting operation. Find the rift Golden Cascade and put a stop her no matter what it takes.

    Completion Text

    In her desperation to reconstitute Laethys, Akala sought to drain the power of the titan Qaerthus himself! But you put a stop to it, [%name]. You have helped us more than you can know.

    Seems you have to find a rift called Golden Cascade, there was one at 5291,6165, and the questgiver says he gives you a lure in case, so just open one up. Has to the items... I was able to get Golden Cores out of destroying a Gildstone deposit (mount that does not attack)... As for the rest, I still need to verify.

    1- Go to Dunes of Akala and find or open (you have rift lure from questgiver) a Golden Cascade rift
    2- step 2 ?
    3- step 3, profit...

    I can confirm that you may find Golden Cascades already open randomly in the area.
    Getting a Golden Core from a Gildstones is easy - Phase 1.
    The other 2 objectives are available in phase 5: the boulders are just sort of lumpy standard-looking boulders - click on one, kill the fragments (you may need a pet or tank to tank or kite the Phase 5 boss in order to get all the boulders from one rift: I soloed this but it took closing 2 rifts to get all the boulders.
    The monoliths are sort of plinthy looking things , click them to release the large parasites (I'm not sure, but it looked at though they attacked the Phase 6 boss)
