Guild Wars 2 Daily Achievements Guide

Guild Wars 2 Daily Achievements Guide by Charlatan

If you’ve logged onto GW2 and only have a little time to play, I think one of your best uses of time is to work through your daily achievements.

Why do you want to do this?
1. It’s easy
2. It’s pretty fast
3. You get a nice reward, a chunk of xp, and a little coin
4. Achievements! You get achievement points, which you can use for…. uh…. you can…. uh… they’re pretty!

You can (and probably will) complete your daily achievement automatically just by playing, that’s how easy it is! But it’s worth it to ensure you complete your achievement. So before you log off, check your achievement and see if you can easily complete it – the rewards are worth it!

How do you do this?

1. Open your hero panel by hitting H. Then click on the achievement icon on the left. You should see your current Daily Achievement status:

hero panel: starting dailies

There’s 4 components to the daily achievement: number of kills, kill variety, raw material gathering, and events. As you see, in the area labeled 1, you need 10 kills, which will award you with 1 achievement point (the little 1 with the achievement point symbol to the right of the 0/10 kills bar). The part labeled 2 indicates you need to kill 5 different types of enemies – so for instance a boar, a grub, a mosquito, and so forth. Each different type of creature you kill counts just once for the kill variety. Section 3 says you must gather 3 items, and section 4 says you need to participate in one event.

As you go through playing the game, your bars will start to fill up. See the little gray 1’s at the end of each category? That’s the rank of the achievement you’re working toward. As you fill up a category (say you kill 10 mobs) you will get 1 achievement point and will complete rank 1 of the kill quantity achievement. Completing rank 1 will open up rank 2. Completing 2 opens up rank 3 and completing 3 (when applicable) opens up rank 4. Each further rank simply requires you to perform more of that activity.

Here’s a picture of the daily achievement underway. Note that the kill quantity is still on rank 1: I’ve only killed 7 of the required 10 mobs. However, the kill variety section (number 2) is on rank 2: I killed 5 different types of mobs for rank 1 (see the previous pic) and the display has moved on to the next rank: kill 8 different types of mobs.

daily achievement underway

As you continue killing mobs, gathering materials, and participating in events, eventually you will complete a category. Here’s a picture of the achievement panel after I’ve gathered all required items for the gathering portion. See how it says “Completed” off to the right? That’s how you know that portion is done.

daily achievement almost done

The final numbers you need are:

60 mobs
15 different types of mobs
20 gathers
5 events

Once you complete all the sections, you’ll get an achievement and a chest will pop up on the right side your screen just above the minimap: you don’t need to grab anything, it just shows up and it’s yours! Click the chest icon on the right side of the screen and it’ll open and give you some fabulous rewards!

In this case I got some silver, some xp, and a Mystic Coin (which is used in the Mystic Forge – these are valuable, so hang on to them). Other rewards you may get will include transmutation stones, remote bank access NPCs, repair golems, vendors, or remote Trading Post pick up merchants.

reward!

So here’s some tips for completing your daily:

1. You know those little white non-combat mobs you see around: frogs, sparkflies, whatever: these DO count for both variety and for the kill count. So don’t be afraid to kill those harmless creatures as you run by them!

2. Chopping down trees and Mining ore both contribute more than gathering plants, since you receive 3 gathers of wood/ore for those nodes. So chopping or mining are more “efficient” than just grabbing a plant.

3. The only types of events that count for the event portion are dynamic events: hearts don’t count, nor do skill challenges. There is no memory of the events you’ve done so if you complete the same event more than once, you receive credit for it each time you complete it. Events have to complete for you to receive credit for them. If you hit a few mobs for an event and run off, and the event completes later, you receive credit. However, if you help with an escort quest, and later on the escort NPC gets conked out and needs to be revived, you will not receive any credit. I believe events have to succeed for you to get credit.

4. Daily achievement tallying resets at 8 PM Eastern (5 PM Pacific) which can be in the middle of when you’re playing, so plan accordingly!

5. Note that this achievement is account-wide: which means each day you can only do this for one character each day. No more of this having to log on your Ranger, do the daily, log on your Warrior, do the daily, log on your Necro, do the daily… and so forth. Just do it once!

That is all!

Hope that this will help you guys with busy schedule.

Guild Wars 2 Legendary Guide

From Xaragoth guildwars2guru.com

WARNING: Some of the GW2DB Items aren’t entirely correct. That is due to the Database being in a beta state. If you find things, please tell me immediately. Thank you!

List of things to do here:

  • Add GW2DB Links so you can see a mouse-over when they become available
  • Update Text, Research correct names of some items.
  • Write more details on Dungeon Gifts

How you can contribute to our efforts even now:

  • We need more data on the level range the weapons used to create the base need to have. For now we assume it’s all items above 76+
  • We need more Data on the drop locations of Cores and Lodestones
  • We need to find out which 2nd Gift is used for the Torch. The Wiki is unclear on this.
  • Help us find the correct names for some of the Exotics & Legendary. I already found 3 wrong names in the list that have changed towards the launch.
  • WE CAN’T SAY FOR SURE HOW THE TORCH IS NAMED UNTIL SOMEBODY MAKES IT. THE BASE WEAPON SAYS RODGORT, THE RECIPE SAY’S DRAGON MAW.

Here is a list of Screenshots from this thread on reddit for your viewing pleasure, before you start. Please note that Twilight doesn’t show the right skin and a few weapons are appearently not even in the game yet.

——————————————————————————————————————–

GUIDE BEGINS HERE!

If you need more Information on how to actually FARM the stuff for your Legendary (Gold, Karma, Mats) please check out this Guide:http://www.guildwars…egendary-guide/

Making Legendaries are a long process, which will devour roughly over 100g and 2 Million Karma. Not to mention your time. Some parts are made from crafting, others are obtained as loot, some are random, but pretty much all of them need to be thrown into theMystic Forge. This thread is meant to walk you through the process step-by-step. So let’s start…

Obtaining the Exotics
Each of the Legendaries has it’s own exotic base weapon. These are always ” ____ of Rage” items, because it’s the default Superior Sigil. They can be obtained by throwing 4 rare/exotic weapons above level 76 (research ongoing) of the type you want to obtain into the Mystic Forge (4x Greatsword for Dusk or Dawn) and getting lucky. Or you might be able to obtain them as loot from events or enemies while being out in the world. Either way, you need to obtain the following specific items to craft your Legendary.

This is unconfirmed, but according to someone over at MMO-Champion you can use Mystic Forge Stones to substitute a exotic weapon.

Not yet proven: Greatsword – Sunrise + Twilight – Used for: Eternity

Crafting Gifts
Depending on what Legendary you are crafting, you will have to create specific Gifts. These are related to different Crafting Skills.Gifts are Account-Bound, so buying them on the Trading Post is impossible. The Recipes for these gifts are sold by Miyani in Lion’s Arch. You can find her next to the Mystic Forge. The list here will link to the Wiki, where you can see what you need. AT THIS TIME NOT ALL WIKI ENTIRES MAY BE CORRECT, SO PLEASE TAKE CARE! The Gifts are used as part of the final 3 components you will make with the Mystic Forge later on.

Legendaries and which Gifts they need:
Just click on the items, it will take you to GW2DB and show you which profession makes which Gift.

How to make/obtain Lodestones:
Lodestones used for crafting weapon-specific Gifts drop from high level Elementals and the following Dungeons (research ongoing):

Twilight Arbor – Onyx Lodestone
Citadel of Flame – Molten Lodestone
Honor of the Waves – Glacial Lodestone
Crucible of Eternity – Charged Lodestone
Arah – Corrupted Lodestone
Sorrow’s Embrace – Destroyer Lodestone

Unknown Locations:
Crystal Lodestone

You can also make them in the Mystic Forge if you have Cores (1 Tier below Lodestones):

2x Core + 1x Crystal + 1x Bottle of Elonian wine + 1x Pile of Crystalline Dust

You can obtain Bottle of Elonian Wine from Miyani by the Mystic Forge for 25 silver. She also sells Crystals for 3 Skill points.

How to make/obtain Dungeon Gifts:
Each of the weapon specific gifts needs a specific Dungeon item. Since I don’t have the time right now to update this section, just let me tell you the quick version.

You can buy a Dungeon Gift from the Vendors in LA that also sell the armor. Each costs 500 Tokens from their respective Dungeons. Check the Recipe you have bought for what you need.

Ascalonian Catacombs – Gift of Ascalon: Twilight, Sunrise, Bolt, The Chosen
Arah – Gift of Zhaitan:  Bitfrost, Maw of the Deep
Twilight Arbor – Gift of Thorns: The Dreamer, Howler, Kudzu
Honor the Waves – Gift of the Sanctuary: Frenzy, Frostfang
Citadel of Flame – Gift of Baelfire: Incinerator
Sorrow’s Embrace – Gift of Forgeman: The Juggernaut, Kraitkin
Caudecus’s Manor – Gift of Nobleman: The Minstrel, Quip, The Moot
Crucible of Eternity – Gift of Knowledge: Predator, Meteorlogicus

Example:
Gift of Darkness & Gift of Light both need Gift of Ascalon to be crafted.

Mystic Forge Gifts & Components
To obtain your Legendary, you will need to use the Mystic Forge to combine a great many things. While none of the components are actually “easy” to obtain, I will still try to list them in the order in which you can most likely obtain them.

Gift of Mastery
The first component for a Legendary is obtained by adding the following materials into the Mystic Forge:

Bloodstone Shard + 250x Obsidian Shard + Gift of Exploration + Gift of Battle

Let’s start with the Bloodstone Shard[s, since it’s easy. You can obtain this from Miyani right next to the Forge for 200 Skill points.

Obsidian Shard are obtained from Tactician Deathstrider at the Temple of Balthazar in Straits of Devastation
for 2100 Karma each. So you better bring those 525000 Karma with you.

2 Gifts of Exploration is obtained by reaching 100% World Completion. So get exploring!

Gift of Battle is obtained from any Weaponsmith in the WvW area. It will cost you 500 Badges of honor – so better start the queue, if your realm is full.

Congratulation, you are now one step closer to your Legendary.

Gift of Fortune
The second component for a Legendary is obtained by adding the following materials into the Mystic Forge:

77x Mystic Clover + 250x Globs of Ectoplasm + Gift of Magic + Gift of Might

Mystic Clover are made in the Mystic Forge. They are a rare component obtained when using the T6 Crafting Recipe (yields 20-50 T6 Mats or 10 Clovers). KEEP THOSE T6 MATS!
The recipe is:

10 Obsidian Shards + 10 Mystic Coins + 10 Ectos + 10 Crystals

You already know where to get Obsidian Shards from the 1st Component.

Crystals can be bought from Miyani for 3 Skill points.

Mystic Coins are rewarded for Daily/Monthly Achievements, you should know this by now.

Globs of Ectoplasm are crafting Materials, gained from salvaging 70+ rare/exotic items with at least a Master’s Salvage Kit, probably better to get some Mystic Salvage Kits for this ;)

1x Glob of Ectoplasm + 6x Philosopher’s stone + 1x Obsidian Shard + 1x Mystic Coin = 1-3 T6 or a Mystic Clover

Now, all those attempts to get the Mystic Clover you need should’ve left you win hundred of T6 Crafting Mats. Which is good. Since you will need them now.

Gift of Magic is made from the Mystic Forge by throwing the following into it:

250x Vicious Fangs + 250x Armored Scale + 250x Vicious Claw+ 250x Ancient Bone

Gift of Might is made from the Mystic Forge by throwing the following into it:

250x Vial of Powerful Blood + 250x Powerful Venom Sac + 250x Elaborate Totem + 250x Pile of Crystalline Dust

Congratulations. You have now obtained your 2nd Component. And if you aren’t broke yet, you will be soon.

Gift of <Insert Legendary Name>
You need specific Superior Sigil depending on what you want to craft, but they are most likely themed. Also the Mystic Forge won’t accept any other Sigils than the one that works with the specific components you threw into it (as far as we know).

This Component needs:

Crafting Gift A + Crafting Gift B + 100x Icy Runestones + Superior Sigil of X.

Icy Runestones cost 1 gold each and can be bought after defeating the Claw of Jormag in Frostgorge Sound.

Now just throw all that stuff into the Mystic Forge after you have spend 100G on it and you can make a Gift of <Insert Legendary Name>.

Example:
Gift of Light + Gift of Metal + 100x Icy Runestones + Superior Sigil of Strength = Gift of Sunrise.

Legendaries and which Superior Sigils they need:

Obtaining the Legendary
Now just take your exotic base weapon and your components and throw them into the Forge.

Example:
Dawn + Gift of Sunrise + Component 2 + Component 3 = Sunrise

Congratulations! – you have now obtained your Legendary. And probably in more than a week! If you manage to make one in a week or less, Munkee will be forced by us all to give you a special price.

Don’t forget to post your Legendary so we can drool at it.

Guild Wars 2 Cooking Guide 1-400

Chef / Cooking 0 – 400 Guide, Version 1.5
Hatberg, Dragons In Exile, Far Shiverpeaks @ 14-09-2012

Special thanks to: Simeon, bordot, Mattspire, ZeiMyName, Synvilla, Zygorian, Cassium Vanderbilt, Washi and others from this thread.

Important update: as of September 7th, 2012 a lot of the vendor ingredients are no longer sold by the named NPCs but can be found through harvesting, logging and monster loot bags instead. Possible locations have been added to the guide. Click here for the “Patch Notes”.

Chef girl~

“SPOILER” WARNING: A lot of the joys of Cooking (and Guild Wars 2 in general) come from discovering stuff for yourself. Cooking is a fun craft on its own, but this guide has tried to minimize the effort, cost and bag space required to quickly grind Cooking to 400.

I haven’t included the exact number of materials required as it varies per person, depending on luck (bonus experience on “criticals”), or if you’re using a Craft Booster. This guide assumes you know how Renown Hearts and karma work, and that you already know how crafting in general works. For a great video tutorial on crafting basics please visit Enigmius’ Guide.

Please note that there are two different tabs in your crafting interface, a Hammer symbol for recipes you already know (inluding the ones that will unlock for free), and an Anvil symbol used to Discover new recipes. In the event you cannot discover a specific recipe mentioned below, chances are you already received it for free when reaching the numbered skill level. Please check your recipes under the Hammer tab.
