  • Iwakura

    I thought we had moved past the “kill x amount of y” achievements.

  • John Doe

    These grindy achivs keep on comming . I for one will select only the ones with a decent worthy reward at the end and skip the rest.. too tedious

    • Kuro Inu

      well I’d rather have some grindy achievements than pure luck based achievements like betting on moas and the one of crab toss game(I’ve got this one but luck shouldn’t have something to do with achievements)

      • Iwakura

        Point taken. Anything’s better than luck based or that god awful Tier 4 trial.

  • Max Barber

    Are the luminary runs a daily thing? I did it twice today and my achievement only shows 1 run.

    • katreyn

      Luminary runs aren’t dailies. The daily for today is the balloon visiting one that shows up in your daily tab.

      Was trying to figure out why I had 14 achieves for Jubilee and there was only 13 listed. xD

    • Yoone

      The thing is that there are 4 spots to start a run in the Divinity’s Reach :)

    • DanFariasM

      There are 4 different runs

  • Iwakura

    “each escort count as 10 kills”. Does this mean escorting them gives you 10 kills regardless to whether you kill 10 or not? I ask because there’s a good chance some of the mobs will be tagged and killed by another player with the amount of people completing it.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Yes it give you 10 kills as long you completed the event, regardless of how many you actually kill.

  • Whaka

    I’m confused. There are 2 towers in Queensdale, I’ve climbed both and only one had a chest. My achievements also only state I’ve climbed 1 tower.
    Do they have to be in different zones?

    • katreyn

      Queensdale seems to be bugged in this regard (at least people on the forums have the same issue). If you get one chest it counts as you got them both. Luckily there are more chests/towers then the achievement calls for.

  • Mordenkainen

    Didn’t see more than 2 balloons per map. <3DULFY<3

  • Mordenkainen

    @whaka It means that the chest only count on the achievement, not the tower.

  • SOS

    Queen’s champions locations?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      It is a random event near Balloon towers.

  • Mordenkainen

    BTW another tip for the run, talk to the NPC that gives speed buff. For the race beginning at Lyssa WP, jump right at the end to reach the last beacon.

  • Femina

    Luminiary Tip:

    Go to one of the priests prior to talking to the torchbearer to get the 5min swiftness boosts from them.

    Right before you talk to the torchbearer, also apply swiftness to yourself with any skill that grants it. Trust me, swiftness helps!

    Having a partner using shouts on you helps as well.

    On the third run (Lyssa Waypoint), it is advisable that you get the beacons that are on the tower (3 of them), then head back towards the ramp and go up. Don’t go for the obvious beacons first.

    Same applies for the fourth run (in the gardens).
    I’ll see if I can give like a map or something.

  • lola

    Would be great if u could list where to find the 6 champs for Winner and Champion ap

    • Rava

      Also if you can the locations for the balloons on the maps, that would be helpful too. :)

  • hi

    where does Luminiary take place?

    • Zanne C.

      There are four “Torchbearers” I believe they’re called in Divinity’s Reach. You can find them on the map with a scroll icon with a golden star inside. One is up west of the Palace Waypoint, for instance. There are two others to the east near Rurikton Waypoint and Kormir Waypoint, respectively. The last one, I can’t remember the location of.

  • Misa

    I just finish 14 tasks of 16. 2 tasks are missing or they will be avalible later ?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You gotta do Jubliee dallies, look at your daily section and you will find a jubilee daily.

      • Misa

        yep you got it right. Just finish Krytan Torchbearer and it count as 15/16

        • Misa

          But this achievement (i guess there will be more) is not showing up at Queen Jennah’s Jubilee tab – so it’s pretty confusing :)

  • Eyrika

    Thanks, Dulfy. I wish it was this obvious to figure out what to do by just playing the game :P I can never figure out where to go for this stuff. Great guide as always :)

  • Enduron Stonewall

    This was just for my guild but some of you might want it :)

    (NOTE) This is for EU Servers, I’m not sure if NA Balloons are in the same places.

    P.S My name’s my Gw2 name not my RL name xD

  • Ianpact

    Completed the Ballon tower achievement and now I can’t open any more chest.

  • Guest

    I found the Stony Shield near the AC, Blazing Gun in Queensdale and Whirling Edge in Metrica Province

    • Kets

      If someone else knows where Heavy Hammer is, he is welcome to say it xD

      • Flatbedotr

        Okay so the list is Stoney, Blazing, Whirling, Lighting, and Heavy. Bit of an edit the guide is wrong there is only 5 but it shows 6.

        • Ogrox

          There are 5 total. This guide incorrectly says it’s 6 right now, but your Achievement should have it as “Defeat all 5 types of the Queen’s Champions.”

      • Lord

        The champion changes each time they are defeated.
        I do the same ballon twice and get 2 differents champions for the same place.

    • Kets

      Lightning Blade is in Harathi Hinterlands

    • Damo

      They’re chosen randomly, more or less. I’ve been waiting in Queensdale near Crossing Waypoint, and the order seems to be: Escort -> Clear area -> Champion -> Escort.. Champions were until now: Stony, Lighting, Heavy

  • Sophtopus

    Is the event 2 weeks or 1 month? People are arguing about it and nobody knows the right answer…

    • Flatbedotr

      The total event is 1 month but come the 19th they should have part 2 of this event and then it will start to come to a close.

  • AmadeoKristoff

    Ok so is it me or did they ninja-nerf the drops and gold in the Pavilion? When the patch came out I made a quick 10 gold in 15 mins. Now after 2 hours of farming I only made 3 gold. And I am not the only one saying this but so are my guild mates.

    • Patrick

      So you think you should be allowed to continue to farm 10 gold every 15 minutes? Get real

      • Guest

        He didn’t say that. He asked if it was nerfed without Arena Net mentioning it in the patch notes from the last update. Maybe you should try to read his post before responding.

        • Shaolin Steve

          I was in there in the early AM. We were in there with an anet guy, and the modinir champs were spawning nonstop. Later on an update they mentioned “fixed a bug were champs were spawning too much”. It was a bummer, but I was glad to make a quick bit of gold before the update.

        • AmadeoKristoff

          Thank you dude. Some people clearly need eye check up or learn some English.

      • AmadeoKristoff

        Yo dude, I never said it was a bad thing or anything like. I do not see where it is written that it is a crime or a sin to wonder about something. Read the post next time, or if you dont care to read it, at least dont waste your own energy and time typing an invalid response.

    • Tiberio Potenza

      Diminishing returns?

  • before

    One of the champs seems bugged. I found 2 of them in different maps but couldn’t talk to either of them.

    • Murth

      They can be there without the event being active yet, just be patient and w8 for the event to trigger?

    • LocoMan

      Check that there isn’t any other jubilee event going on (the escort or attacking aetherblades). If there’s any going on, you’ll need to finish it (or wait until it’s finished) before you can fight the champion.

  • Spell

    How many balloons are there? One of the balloons (the one near Kryta Waypoint) don’t count towards my achievement (I’m very sure it hasn’t counted yet since it was the 4th balloon I tried visiting). I hope I can still make 30.

  • Doomer

    I’ve been hammering through achievements and am stuck on the Winner and Champion achievement. 4 of 5 champs killed and I have been to all 30 towers and even rode the cycle on one tower for each region and was continually getting the same champs. There should be I guess a unique champ per area didn’t see much randomness last night. Any chance we could collect what champs spawn in what regions? I really want to get this last champ knocked off.

    • Whaka

      I’ve got the same problem. had the Axe, Gun, Hammer, Greatsword (think he was, I got there late but managed to tag). Can’t for the life of me find the last one.

      • David Rodriguez Jr.

        I fought the shield one in Queensdale by scaver waypoint.

  • Kaeti

    I just completed one of the torchruns for my daily and it didn’t give me it to me T.T
    So how am I suppose to get this for my daily then, if I can’t even get it lol.

  • Whaka

    Do champions change or are they the same champion for each location?

    For example, If I get Whirling Edge Champion at Queensdale Balloon and kill it, will the next Champion spawn be Whirling Edge again, or is there a chance it’ll be a different one?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      They change and is kinda random which one show up

      • Whaka

        I see, well I noticed the champion spawn is waiting even when the event isn’t up. So I just kept changing area until I found the last champion I needed and waited for it to trigger.

  • cleo641

    You should update the Champion achievement (Winner and Champion) to say that you have to kill all 5 Different champions, not just 5. A list of all of their names would be nice too. :)

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Will do, was kept busy by the Queen’s Gauntlet thingie.

  • mohrad

    is “Winner and Champion” bugged? I’ve killed tons of champs (Hot Air Towers 30/30 done) and it still says 4/5 types done. Also i havn’t seen any other type than those 4 already listed here… :c

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      I have all 5 listed now and they all spawned for me.

      • mohrad

        The achivment is dodgy, i was lacking Hammer guy, who i had to kill 4 times for the achiv to finally count him in..

  • DanFariasM

    I’ve seen the champion spawn at the tower, and slowly walk to where you challenge them… also when the champion is ready, as you come close to the balloon guy he’ll say something about looking for new challengers for the pavilion

  • lulala

    so I’ve finished all Queen’s Jubilee achievments, but still 15/16 left?

    • 1DERYRS

      you probably need to do a daily to get the last one

      • quax

        does it count only when daily’s up or u can just do it with 5/5 already ?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Do your Jubilee daily when it resets tonight

    • Steve MD

      I am having the same problem, i do the daily every day

      Awesome, thank you :)

  • The Spirit Molecule

    i can’t find the torches….

  • Azsouth

    I did the torch run but i’m still 14/16 achievments towards the Queens Jubilee w/ nothing else to complete. Anyone know where i’m stuck?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You need to do Jubilee dallies. Go to your daily achievement tab and find the achievement with a different icon from everything else.

      • Azsouth

        Yesterday I did the daily for it and it didn’t count towards the Jubilee Achievements but today it did count.

        • Maciej Nowak

          I also would like to point out exact same issue. Jubilee Dailies so far: 3 events in Pavilion (done), Torchrun (done), fly/visit balloon (done). I believe the first one wasn’t checked on my list of dailies even though it was counted towards daily set of achievements.

        • elinoi

          There is only 13 achievements for Queens Jubilee, so yes it did count. just do 2 more.

      • Ramy Nabil

        i dont have any daily achievements that look any different, theyre all the regular star icon thingies, sup with that?

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          They have disappeared today. Hopefully they will reappear soon as the achievements are suppose to be complete-able until Sept.

          • Matt

            I’m in the same boat. 1 more achievement needed and no jubilee dailies. Derp.

  • Lady Erio

    • Kyrexar

      How do you hide the UI?

      • Aaron Berry

        ctrl+shift+h

        • Kyrexar

          Thank you so much =)

  • ssbobbyh

    I could be wrong, but I think the balloon events cycle like this:

    Aetherblade Killing>Escort>Champ

    Then it repeats.

    • Murth

      I’ve also had followup events after aeth killing which was a time limited kill aeth captain.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/zerses Moirrainefortruth

    Need the locations of the balloons since not all maps have the balloons – so which ones?

    I can’t find 4 of them – I’ve gone to all of Kryta that I know of…

    • Hollow

      Each map has two balloons except orr and southsun, which have none. You should be able to get more than enough since I never did any of the Charr maps and still completed it.

      • https://twitter.com/#!/zerses Moirrainefortruth

        Thank you!

        I didn’t understand that it went farther than I could see the “Kryta” name over the provinces…

        So glad this isn’t a static process – players help here too – yay!

    • Enduron Stonewall
  • Tpot

    Can we have the information aobut the queen’s champions locations, I need 2 more but Its a hassle to find the last ones, ty.

    • Murth

      There are no locations, at every balloon any cahmpion can spawn. The types are not bound to locations as far as I’ve seen.

      • https://twitter.com/#!/zerses Moirrainefortruth

        And as said below they are a three event round so if you are missing one and don’t want to keep running around, do those events and it will cycle – not fun but doable.

        Then go on to the next one…in the next area or the other balloon on that map :)

  • Pingback: This week in Guild Wars 2 | Guild Wars 2 News, Podcast, Videos & Articles | GuildMag

  • https://twitter.com/#!/zerses Moirrainefortruth

    If you aren’t quick, you will be locked out of a balloon you just spent a lot of time alone completing – so get back to that balloon as soon as possible – or you will have to do the next event as well.

    Boy that is a frustrating timer – I’d not have PUT a timer on that one except maybe a daily on each balloon :( , silly programmers. Don’t think about sore fingers from arthritis or other debilitating conditions.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/zerses Moirrainefortruth

    Telling one to find an area that one hasn’t looked in doesn’t help when you believe you have done every area in Kryta…

    I did them in order of level – and I can’t find the last two balloons. :(

  • grape_crush

    Thanks again for the guide…Balloon towers tourist took a couple of hours while I looped through the various maps – having explorer title helped there. Also managed to get crasher crusher, winner and champion, and head starts on the champion of the * achievements.

    Now it’s a little grindy-grind for a couple-three hours in the pavilion (follow the zerg) and the other requirements are done. I’ll probably be up around 7-10 gold at the end with some new rare or exotic gear. Not bad.

  • kill_bill

    I’m having trouble with the towers, I’ve only been able to get 1 tower per zone even though there are 2 towers in each zone, a bug maybe? anyone else have this problem?

  • Charrlie Zard

    any idea if there will be time to finish this after the Queens speech update?

  • Omar

    how can i escort emmissaries while the crown pavilion isnt available anymore?

    • Murth

      1. The crown pavilon is still available untill Sep 3. ( you need to finish scarlet’s playhouse to gain acces again)
      2. You can’t escort emmissaries in the crown pavilon. they’re events that happen at a balloon tower( each escort counts as 10 kills). You can however kill enemies while under influence of a cities buff when inside the crown pavilon.

  • James

    i take it you can’t get the opening ceremony achievement anymore?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Nope :(
