With the May 2022 Patch, Mercenaries have been simplified, if you are All Access you get the equivalent of Journeyman Tier 5, otherwise you will get the equivalent of Apprentice Tier 5.

The goal of this guide is to help you gain access to the Tier 5 Journeyman Mercenaries, in a quick and efficient way. There is a Level 75 Requirement for all of the tasks needed. For the T5 mercs, you only need to complete the Earth theme of the SoD progression chain. Completing the Earth theme will unlock the Tier 5 Journeyman mercs, but will not unlock the lower tier Journeyman mercs. All of these tasks take place in Korascian Warrens, which is connected to the Toskirakk zone.

Alternatively at Level 85, you can do the House of Thule quest: No Heroism Without Fear


Step 1: Complete Find Your Allies. This is a simple quest given by Nedsin Tabbels (shown by ) in which you will run around picking up ground spawns.

Step 2: Get Nedsin's next task, Whom Frogs Destroy. Also grab the task Retinue of the Frog God from Sterik Gristmaker (shown by ). Head to the spot and slay sentinels for quest, then continue to the spot and finish the Whom Frogs Destroy quest.

Step 3: Grab Nedsin's final task, The Wrath of Korascian. Head back to the spot and slay the giant frog.

Step 4: Grab both of Ylatra the Vassal's quests, Champions No More and Disrupt the Siege. Ylatra is located at the location. Head up to the top of the map, as shown by on the map. Finish both of Ylatra's quests.

Step 5: The final step is the group mission, Murdunks Last Stand. Grab a friend or two and finish this mission. You will now be able to purchase Tier 5 Journeyman Mercanaries!

no way to get out of the instance on murdunk's last stand, best bet is to drop the task once its complete. that will send you back out to ylatra the vassal. now on the other part of your question make sure you have completed Partisan of the korascian warrens, located in /achievements SoD > Quests > partisan of the korascian warrens, if all those are checked and you still can not purchase the merc check in your achievements under missions now on the bottom Hero of the Korascian warrens, you must have the check for Murdunk's last stand the other one the crystal bloom does not matter. hope this helps

I did this series of task and still can't buy the t5 J's. I also had to gate out of the instance to leave it, is that normal or is there a proper zone out after you complete this task?
