GW2 Associate of Baubles Super Adventure Box achievement guide

GW2 Associate of Baubles achievement guide for Super Adventure Box. For this achievement, you must collect all the baubles inside Zone 1 (Sunny Glade) . Note that baubles that can be gained via breakable items inside shops do not count (i.e. you don’t need to go inside shops to break jars and stuff).

For a painless collection of baubles, use Infantile mode, which works but you need to buy keys from shops since mobs do not drop them. Make sure you have at least 50 baubles to start for 2 keys just in case.

Couple of other things

  • Only baubles in the “open” world and in chests count – those dropped by enemies or found by smash things in shop/dug up do not.
  • You cannot exit to SAB hub while doing this, doing so will reset your progress. You can die or go to Moto’s Hell (i.e. where you need to buy more continue coins).
  • If you DC/crash etc then you will need to start over.

Checkpoint 3 to 4


9. Three blue bauble (+1) and one green bauble (+5) inside the maze with the Queen Beedogs.The maze is hidden in side the first corner after you cross checkpoint 3. It may help to run to the end of the maze and then jump on top of it to look down on the baubles. Remember that there are four baubles inside the maze.

10. Behind the maze is an open area with Queen Bee Dog. Defeating her will give you access to her honeycomb, which can be destroyed for baubles. These baubles are not required for the achievement but if you feel like having some extra baubles, they are there.

That is all the baubles in this zone. Once you defeat the cage guarding the chest, you will get the Associate of Baubles achievement.

    About the bee, I just did it without doing the bee and still got the achievement. I figured they only count the baubles that won’t disappear. Baubles from the bees will disappear in about 1 minute.

    • Slur

      I skipped the queen bee as well and received the achievement.

  • Sing

    I tested it, the big bee with her honeycomb does NOT count!

  • Deesr

    Can’t wait for the guide for Zone 2 & 3. I hope they come asap.

    • henry

      +1

  • Sancra

    Hmm i have a question does me dying a few times make me unable to get achiev? I’ve done zone 2 shortcut and i think i’ve got pretty much all baubles but i didn’t get neither achievements because i died 3 times at the last hidden door before boss checkpoint.

  • Ares Zax

    Does anyone know if you can collect the Baubles in Infantile mode and still unlock the achievement? Or are all achievements save for “Baby Steps” locked unless you’re doing it in normal mode?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You can do it in infantile mode yup

      • Ares Zax

        Sweet! I tried collecting all the Baubles normally but as Risingashes mentions above, Infantile mode can make reaching some areas much easier.

  • kintai

    i just completed the achieve without killing the queen bee and beating up that thing

  • Risingashes

    This should be number 6 within Checkpoint 1 to 2. It’s a +5 on the hill just below the current number 6.

  • Risingashes

    Might want to suggest doing this in infantile mode, as it makes the 2 to 3 checkpoint not rely on making the checkpoint jump as a rainbow spawns very close to the cliffs.

  • http://senilityguild.com/ kiwipearls

    Do you have to collect them all in one go…or does it remember what you have already accumulated each time you re-enter the SAB?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Not sure, I collected everything in one go.

  • Naviso

    I think you missed one bauble on a little hill between the maze and the queen be dog.

  • Valor

    if you die, does it count ? because i try 2 time (and die once both time)and no achivement for now :x

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      if you die and run out of continue coins I think it resets the counter. Not sure

  • http://www.kingrpg.net/ KINGRPG

    Why sometime, when i stand near enemies then I hit miss

  • http://www.facebook.com/dj.nick.serrano Nick Serrano

    alright ive done this like at least 7 different times and still no achievement, there has to be a missing bauble in this guide

    • Torpedo

      same here D: the baubles listed above are easy to get… but still no achievement

      • Torpedo

        Hey, I finally got the achievement just now. I thought i got all the baubles listed in the guide… but i was actually missing the THIRD blue bauble in the maze part aside the green bauble! And i also got the green bauble on the hill mentioned by Risingashes in the comments.

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          I am going to bold those parts since people seem to miss on those baubles. Good to know though :)

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      That is all the baubles there is. Did you use whip to open the chest? Heard it give you credit if you do

      • http://www.facebook.com/dj.nick.serrano Nick Serrano

        no i followed your guide to a T, and used a key not a whip…idk…weird

      • http://www.facebook.com/dj.nick.serrano Nick Serrano

        also just tried with the whip this time just to see if maybe it would work and nothing still

    • TopoRUS

      Just for note: for me it’s not work in infantile mode, tried it about 7-8 times. After did it in normal mode and get the achievement.

      • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

        Strange, I did it in infantile mode and it worked.

        • TopoRUS

          May be it’s my special bug or may be they fix something in last patch.

          • TruthBtold

            make sure u grabbed all in maze, honey comb not needed bu maze is.

        • Raziel Cruentus

          It seems trying it on an alt fixes this issue. Worked for me and 3 guildmates. We all tried getting the baubles achievement several times, and never got it even though we used this guide. As soon as all 4 of us tried it on our alts, we got the achievement.

          May want to add this to your guide =)

    Hey Guys just a quick tip for “12. Past checkpoint 4 is a series of 3 baubles that you will get when you jump over the gap.” if you use the dodge jump(default is space+v) you can make it across no problem.

  • Guest

    make sure u grabbed all in the maze- honeycomb not needed but maze is.

  • Zoe Jo

    This time around, this doesn’t seem to work. I’ve completed this according to several guides including this one (both photos and videos) multiple times in different difficulties. I never get te achievement. Anyone in the same situation or has anyone got it? Did you get it Dulfy?

    PS. I have done it in a single run without dying. On one of these runs I actually got Associate of Secrets.

    • Htuocles

      First time doing SAB and I just got it following this guide. No deaths.

  • andybabes

    All the baubles are there in the video but you’ve missed out one bauble in the written guide.
    (The one on the small hill under the big hill with the chest in the first area.)

    • James Kaze Poon

      you are right. i did this 3 times before i saw your comment. written guide is incomplete.

      dulfy could you fix this? thank you so much for your many guides.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Are you talking about #6? 6. One +20 bauble inside the chest (key obtained by killing monkeys or brought from store) and a +5 bauble just on the ledge below.

  • Guest

    Hi guys, #6 baubles: around the hill of chest there is a monkey that drop a key ;)

  • 5ekToR

    BIG THX!

  • Rowena Muldal

    This really sucks, I spent ages battling through this, because I am a crappy jumper … I did every single place as on the above pics, and even extras from mobs, etc and I did NOT get the achieve … :( really sucks.

    • shakah

      I did this following picture by picture,.. word for word and i can confirm that i got the achievement..you may have missed something …. or ur achievement got bugged for a day … try again! =D
