Maw of Torment

There are 3 phases to this meta:
1) Attacking elite Forged officers and cannons
2) Escorting 3 NPCs from the NW, N, and SE sections of the Maw area to the center
3) Defeating the legendary Forged Demolisher

1)
There are 3 individual events (left picture). While there is a time limit (8 minutes), this event can actually fail and the meta will still progress. The event is all about destroying the Forged elites and cannons. The elites and cannons will persist to the next event if none are destroyed, which will make it slightly more difficult for smaller groups.

It is possible for each of these events to upscale to champion Forged. A method that can work is to only do one or two lanes (or three if your group is really fast) individually to obtain the most amount of champs. The more the squad does, the more the prep beforehand since it will be more difficult to spread when the timer runs out.

2)
There are 3 escorts that need to be carried out within 8 minutes. Each spawns at the start of the previous event (right picture). Disclaimer, this part of the event is known to bug out by stalling. Each of these escorts need at least a small group to succeed as there are a lot of Forged enemies. I recommend at least 5 for each escort, but the more the better.

Each of the escorts can upscale to champions. While it may sound great to do an escort at a time (they are quick), the time it takes to travel to other escorts and to complete them may not be enough time to do each individually. It's most likey best to complete all 3 as fast as possible.

3)
Afterwards, a legendary Forged boss will spawn at the waypoint, The Darklands Waypoint [&BKMKAAA=]. The basic mechanics of this boss is to avoid its dash attack that leaves a firey trail and to attack where it isn't putting a shield up.

Occasionally, Forged champions will spawn throughout the fight. They do drop loot so make sure to tag those!

Junundu Rising

There are 2 phases to this meta:
1) Collect sulfer crystals for [NPC name]'s junundu lure
2) Destroy the Awakened trebuchets / Destroy the Forged cannons

1)
There are 3 individual events. Use a Skimmer or Skyscale to go into the sulfur valleys to obtain a Sulfur Crystal. It will appear as a buff on your buff bar to indicate that you've picked one up. Simply hover over one, then head to an NPC to turn it in. It's good to supply at least 1 for each event to get 3 event credits.

2)
Each of the escorts can upscale to champions. While it may sound great to do an escort at a time (they are quick), the time it takes to travel to other escorts and to complete them may not be enough time to do each individually. It's most likey best to complete all 3 as fast as possible.

3)
Afterwards, there are two forts that can be assaulted, Forged or Awakened. Both forts will have a single champion. The common route is to start with the Awakened champion then to the Forged. Disclaimer: make sure to not stand on top of the champions as they will teleport away and possibly go invulnerable if they go past the fort barrier.

After the champions, the junundu wurms will have taken down the barriers of the gate and there are 3 trebs/cannons to defeat in both camps. More champions are likey to spawn at the Awakened than the Forged, but generally people split to both forts to finish them quickly. They downscale pretty well with a small group.
