GW2 Shattered Ice Ruins jumping puzzle guide with detailed explanations and video walkthrough. Shattered Ice Ruins is a jumping puzzle in the northern portion of Frostgorge Sound, just east of Shattered Ice Floe. The puzzle itself isn’t too hard but it does have a lot of nasty mobs that you need to get through (need to kill them if you don’t have swiftness).
It is recommended that you run to the puzzle from the Ice Floe waypoint in the west as it is the shortest path. The puzzle entrance is underwater and there may or may not be an ore node at the entrance (varies from server to server).
You will need to swim past some skales in the water before you enter a large cavern filled with snow trolls. Take a left and run up the stairs.
Run past or fight your way through two oozes.
Once you get up top, make these three jumps. Last two jumps will require swiftness if you are in combat.
The troll portion is fairly annoying, you can fight them but the veteran snow troll is fairly tough and loves to put you in crystals while he pounces on you. The best way is to just run past them. As long they can’t hit you (they are melee), they won’t put you in combat.
You will need to be out of combat or have swiftness to make this jump after the trolls.
Once you get past the trolls, it is time to face the oozes. These mobs are ranged so they will most likely put you in combat. You can make the jump after them with swiftness if you like to skip. Otherwise, kill them so you are not put in combat.
The last jump will take you to a veteran ooze, which you can run past and jump to the tower with the veteran troll.
The veteran troll can be easily skipped, just run up the stairs past him and relog if you need to exit combat to make this jump.
Keep going up and the chest is up top!
