Guild Wars 2 Chaos Crystal Cavern detailed jumping puzzle guide with full video walkthrough. Chaos Crystal Cavern is a jumping puzzle in the SW corner of Iron Marches, a 50-60 zone. The puzzle itself is fairly straightforward but can be frustrating at times. Luckily there is a shortcut that allow you to skip half the puzzle.
Starting the Puzzle
To get to the puzzle, take the waypoint at Old Piken Ruins and head straight west. You will see some bats on the cliffs. Jump on top of these cliffs and you should see a hole in the ground hidden by a tree. The hole is actually a well that has an opening on the other side that leads you to the start of the puzzle.
Shortcut: Instead of start running from the beginning , you can run to one of the low pillars in the water and jump on it instead. This will cutdown the puzzle by 1/2 and reduce some of the potential frustrations you may face.
Buffs/debuff Some of the rocks will randomly receive lighting, standing on them will grant you a buff or debuff. Some of them make it easier to do the puzzle while others make the puzzle very difficulty. If you get a debuff that you don’t like, just log to character select to remove it or stand on the same rock and wait for the lightning to strike again.
