GW2 A Waddle to Remember achievement guide

GW2 A Waddle to Remember achievement guide with detailed walkthrough. A Waddle to Remember is an explorer achievement introduced with the Halloween patch. Like the other skritt transformation related achievements, this one has a number of possible locations. At the moment this achievements seems to be obtained from chests located in Mount Maelstrom, Brisban Wildlands, Caledon Forest, and Metrica Pronvince (i.e. Maguuma Jungle area)..


  • Press ctrl down while looking for these chests as it will highlight their names.
  • Best to do this with a friend so you can find the skritt burgler faster and reduce the waypoint costs
  • Do not use any pets/clones if possible as the skritt may transform your pet instead. This is especially a concern for rangers.
  • Focus on low damage attacks so you don’t kill the skritt burgler too quickly

  • WhiteScarf

    Judging from the pictures you might have mixed up Mount Maelstrom and Fireheart Rise? Great stuff anyway thank you!

    • Indeed I did, thank you for the correction 😀

  • Harain

    someone posted somewhere that this chest can spawn in southeast Brisban Wildlands at the Thaumacore Inquiry Centre. Can’t remember where i read this, but went there a few times and nothing

  • Alex

    The Stychs. East side of the “circle”

    • thanks, that is also where I got my achievement 😀

      • Morten Møller Jakobsen

        Mine as well. Why isn’t it on the list though?

        • It is, see possible location 3

  • Harain

    2 more locs with pics here (including the 1 Alex mentioned (the Stychs):

    • ty, added those two

  • dude, location 4 is fake….I just went there and there was no chest there

    • exzacklyright

      they’re random …. once someone opens it, the next moves to another spot.

  • exzacklyright

    omg the dude ran away and i didn’t get it :[

  • eatnut

    Will this event disappear when Halloween end?

    • nope, it is here to stay

  • Wanderer

    i really have some trouble with this achievement (and other similar ones…) i mean, the skrit does not transform me… i killed him several times, and nothing happened except the drop. i also let him run away, following him closely and doing ome damage, but when he reached the destination, he didn’t transform me either. so, what should i do? 😀

    • not sure at this point sorry. Make sure you are not using clones/pets. I always get transformed everytime I did it but I know lots of other people with the same issue as you 🙁

  • Pomphe DrakkarLake

    Regarding location 3: Two pictures showing the location of the chest and the path the skritt takes.

    What I found during some trys on the chests introduced with the halloween patch:
    1. I found that the skritt drops a total 5 small bags of loot (purple colored bags on the ground) at set amounts of hp left (they can contain rare items)

    2. He will drop a bag of loot if you down him, containing 3 items of varying quality (never got more than masterwork quality here

    3 He will at least try to transform you twice on his way and these transforms can miss – so do not blind him

  • Roland

    I’ve tried all four locations multiple times now, always in a sequence and I tried it at least five times. Nothing. It seems like there are many other locations for the chest, or a location is so hidden that it is hardly ever found. I hope people will report additional locations!

  • Kayuon

    4 location
    Brisban Wildlands

  • Frahnhus (Darkhaven)

    Possible Location #9 – Caledon Forest found the chest in -guest- server and when the skritt appeared I followed by doing normal attack and being in front of his path and at 50% health he transformed me (hope this helps for those who cant get the chest and get transformed)

  • Jesse

    I just found it at location 9, and I was able to kill the Skrit.. But I didn’t get any achievement? How come?

    • Jesse

      Ah I see, you need to get transformed for it..

    • You have to get transformed to get the achievement.

      • Jesse

        I did all the locations again now, but haven’t found the chest anymore.. Is it becouse I just finished it or becouse there are some locations missing?

        • I think there are some missing locations

  • Zunte

    Found the chest twice in #10. The first one couldn’t get the achivement. On the second finally got transformed

  • Arashiookami

    A note of warning to rangers. He’ll transform your pet and you will miss it. =/
