GW2 Halloween achievements guide including Emissary of the Mad king achievement and other Halloween related achievements under the Special Events section of achievements.
How do I get to Mad King’s Labyrinth?
Queensdale, Kessex Hills, Gendarran Fields, look for haunted doors marked with pumpkin icons on the map. If they are not there, you have to do the events. See 3. Halloween Events completed for a location of the meta events that will open the haunted doors to Mad King’s Labyrinth.

2. Halloween Huntin’ (150 Mad King Realm monsters killed)
Fairly easy achievement to do now that Act 2 has being released and you can access Mad King’s Labyrinth. Any monsters inside Mad King’s Labyrinth will count towards this achievement. If you don’t feel like venturing into Mad King’s Labyrinth for some reason, monsters that spawn out of normal Haunted Doors will also work or you can just do the Halloween related events and hit two achievements with one stone.
You have a couple of options here. The best one I find is to roam between Queensdale/Kessex Hills/Gendarran fields and do the events to open the Haunted Doors to the Mad King’s Labyrinth. If you can’t find the specified events in these zones, then just go to Mad King’s Labyrinth and look for events there.
3.1 Queensdale – Knocking on the Door meta event
You can find events in the following locations in Queensdale assuming that the Haunted Door are not already open to Mad King’s Labyrinth
3.2 Kessex Hills – The Mad Engineer
You can expect to find events related to the Mad Engineer meta event chain in these three locations in the NE portion of Kessex Hills
3.3 Gendarran Fields – Advisors of the Lunatic Court
You can expect to find events of the Advisors of the Lunatic Court meta chain in the SW corner of Gendarran Fields at these three locations.
4. It’s a Mad King’s World (Explore 4 parts of Mad King’s World)
- Explore Mad King’s Labyrinth (there is a portal that take you down below) or do Lunatic’s Inquisition – 1/4
- Reaper’s Rumble (you get the achievement for it when you exit) – 2/4
- Mad King’s Clock Tower (don’t need to complete the jumping puzzle) – 3/4
- Ascent to Madness dungeon – 4/4
5. Trick or Treat bags opened (100 bags)
You have to open 100 of those Trick or Treat bags to complete all 5 tiers of this achievement. Bags can be acquired from
- Haunted doors
- Mining candy corn nodes
- Mobs in Mad King’s Labyrinth
- Killing random monsters out in the world
- Giving Candy Corn to kids running around in Lion’s Arch, who will give you personalized Trick or Treat bags in return that also count towards the achievement
- Trading Post.
6. Pumpkin Carving (carve 150 pumpkins)
There is a full post devoted to pumpkin locations! See this guide. If you have alts (you can make them if you don’t), you can do Lion’s Arch multiple times and get the achievement out of the way since it is an account achievement.
You think you are good at jumping puzzles? Wait till you try this one… Mad King’s Clock Tower is accessed via Mad King’s Labyrinth via the Lunatic Boatmaster. See this guide for a video and some pointers.
