GW2 Lessons from the Sky achievement guide with a list of locations of the Sky Crystals needed to complete this Bazaar of the Four Winds achievement.
Note: There are 52 Sky Crystals in total but you only need to find 40 to complete the achievement. This guide has 43 crystals listed so this means that you can skip 3 crystals you think are hard to reach. Once a crystal has being collected, you cannot collect the same crystal again via overflows/different characters etc.
It is best to watch the video and follow along since the map has a lot of vertical layers. Nonetheless, map of the 43 crystals and written walkthrough has being provided for those unable to view the video for whatever reason.
Sky Crystal #1
Jump from the platform above to grab this crystal, you may need to backtrack to where you jumped off to get the second crystal
Sky Crystal #2
Consider this one a freebie
Sky Crystal #3
This one is on top of this stone pillar and you will need to use #1 Assisted Leap nearby to get up there.
Sky Crystal #4
This one is just behind the stone pillar past the waterfall. You will need to use Light Dash (#2) and control how far you dash by pressing #2 again.
Sky Crystal #5
After you exit the waterfall, keep following the path and then look to your left. You should see two platforms out in the air. You will need to grab Lightning Pull nearby and then pull yourself there.
Sky Crystal #6
From #5, leap back a platform and then jump down to the platforms below. You will find #6 to the right of that platform.
Sky Crystal #7
Leap back from #6, and then leap onto the rock to the left of the landing platform via a manual Lightning Pull
Sky Crystal #8
#8 is just behind you. Leap back to that Lighting platform first and then leap there manually via Lightning Pull.
Sky Crystal #9
Drop down on the ground and go back to the Light Dash bridge. At the corner, look up and you will see #9 on top of some bamboo structure. You are going to #1 Assisted Leap to that location via series of Leaps.
Sky Crystal #10
Jump down to the Light Dash bridge and go back the location you were before you jumped on the Lightning Pull platforms for #5. Now you are going to drop down very carefully to grab #10.
Sky Crystal #11
After grabbing #11, drop down and run back to where you were. Now instead of dropping down go up to the Wind Adept. Grab #1 Assisted Leap near him and get this crystal via that leap.
Sky Crystal #12
Now you are going to use #3 Lightning Pull and do a manual pull to this platform and then use a series of #1 Assisted Leap to get this #12 Sky Crystal. This part is a bit tricky and you may fall to your death.
Sky Crystal #13
Lightning Pull yourself back to Wind Adept and cross a couple of platforms with #1 Assisted Leap. Now you will need to drop down to that bamboo structure and do a manual Lightning Leap or jump to #13 Sky Crystal.
Sky Crystal #14
Below you is #14, you can either drop down or use Lightning Pull manually to drop yourself there.
Sky Crystal #15
Drop down to the ground and run all the back. This time cross all the platforms next to the Wind Adept and make it to the other side. Look to you left once you arrive and Lightning Pull yourself over to #15.
Sky Crystal #16
Pull yourself back to the Lightning Adept and then cross over to the next tower. Keep going up that tower until you are at the very top. From there, you can do a manual Lightning Pull to get #16 on the wall.
Sky Crystal #17
Go back to where you were but this time instead of pulling to the left you will walk on to the end of the stick that is sticking out and then use Lightning Pull manually on the little house on the right. Then use #1 Assisted Leap to get up to the very top of that bamboo structure.
Sky Crystal #18
Don’t move from #17. You are going to use Lightning Pull to manually pull yourself to this little house a bit far away and then use #1 Assisted Leap to get on the roof to grab #18.
Sky Crystal #19
You can now leap back to Lightning Adept and cross some towers. #19 is inside this little basket there in one of the towers so just keep an eye out. Use #1 Assisted Leap to get up to the basket.
Sky Crystal #20
Go up the tower where #19 was located, at the very top, you can do a Lightning Pull to get to #20. Give yourself a pat in the back as you are halfway there!
Sky Crystal #21 (Can skip)
Be warned that this is a very hard sky crystal to get to. Since there are 43 crystals in this guide, you may skip this one and save yourself some frustration. Go back to the same location you pulled from for #20, now instead of pulling right, pull left using Lightning Pull.
Once you land there, go to the very edge of the Bamboo structure and then aim your Lightning Pull here. If you are lucky, you will land on that Bamboo structure. From there, you can use #1 Assisted Leap to get to the roof of the house with the Sky Crystal.
Sky Crystal #22
Exit out using Sky Docks Waypoint. Make sure you have full charges of #1 Assisted Leap if possible (go back to Lightning Adept if you need to refill). Having 10 charges allow you to grab #22, 23, 24, and 25 all in one go.
Go to Kookoochoo’s stage and then use #3 Lightning Leap to get atop the small windmill.
From the windmill, use #3 to pull to the structure to your right then walk along the beam to where the lantern is. From the lantern, you can use #1 assisted leap to grab #22.
Sky Crystal #23
From #22’’s location, do a #3 Lightning Pull and that should get you to #23
Sky Crystal #24
From #23, use #1 Assisted Leap go get high up on the big beam supporting the spinning fan. From there you can use #1 skill a couple more times to get to the Sky Crystal.
Sky Crystal #25 (Can skip)
Drop down to #23’s location from #24 and then pull yourself back to #22. From #22, pull yourself to the structure below #25. From there, try pull to up top where #25 is located. If you are lucky, you will land on top and can grab #25. If you are not, you will most likely fall to your death. This last pull is not very easy and may take a lot of practice.
Sky Crystal #26
Waypoint back to Sky Docks, pull yourself to this structure and then you reach the tip use assisted leap to get #26.
Sky Crystal #27

If not you can find them on the ship. Pull yourself onto it and walk along length of the bamboo support. You will need to play with your camera a bit so you don’t walk off the narrow beam.
Sky Crystal #30
Keep following that narrow beam to the end and then pull yourself onto #30
Sky Crystal #31
Pull yourself onto the the slanted bamboo stick here and then use #1 assisted leap to get to the roof tops where you will find #31.

Sky Crystal #37
Drop down and near you is this sky crystal that is one leap away.
Sky Crystal #38
Not far from it is another Sky Shard on the wall. This one is a bit hard to reach and may require a bit of practice. You will need to land on a rock cropping halfway so you can leap higher next time and reach it. If you are out of #1 leaps, there is a recharge nearby.
Sky Crystal #39
Waypoint back to Bazaar Docks, take a left before the Light Dash bridge. You will find #39 one leap away on the left.
Sky Crystal #40
