GW2 Associate of Baubles world 2 achievement guide

GW2 Associate of Baubles World 2achievement guide with a list of all bauble locations in World 2 Zone 1 required for the achievement. This guide uses information provided by THMurphy.

This guide will also complete Associate of Secrets so if you are doing this you do not need to read Associate of Secrets guide.

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

  • Make sure your bauble wallet is never full during the collection of baubles. Waste them on bombs if you are full.
  • 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.

Here is a video showing you how to reach the final chest after the September 6 patch

Checkpoint 4-5

Checkpoint 5-6


Buy a key from the store just left of checkpoint 5. (i.e. right after you got off the raft). This also counts as your first hidden room

12. Blue Bauble

Don’t use the cloud here, instead, you have to throw a bomb at the crocodile and then use the flower to shoot yourself across to get this bauble.

gw2-associate-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-13

13. Yellow Bauble

Make sure you are still carrying the key, use this flower pad to shoot yourself to the middle of the waterfall, which should put you into into a hidden cave. If you don’t know how to do this flower pad properly, drop the key somewhere safe and practice it so you don’t lose your key to the waterfall.

Checkpoint 9-Boss


36. Purple Bauble

Go back to the shop near the last checkpoint and then buy a key. This shop counts as eleventh hidden room. Carry the key all the way to the next checkpoint and activate it. There are two ways to reach that chest

Note: Drop your key on the checkpoint and practice a bit first, especially with method 2 so you don’t die to the waterfall and lose your key.

Method 1: Jump from the flower rock to the rock near the waterfall but this is abit harder post-patch. You want to turn left while in  he air so you land on that little stub.

gw2-associate-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-59gw2-associate-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-60

Method 2: Jump on the closest log to the final checkpoint and then face towards the cliff. When you get to the height of the nearby pillar on your way down, hold down W and you will walk to a ledge at the very bottom. There is an entryway at the right side of the ledge where you will enter a cave filled with bears and mushroom jump pads that allow you to get to the chest.

  • Home Fries

    I approve of this guide! :D

  • Jiuzi

    Will there be a video guide for this?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Yup, coming in a few hours

  • Izo Yukimura

    Can this be completed in infantile or are the pictures just done in infantile for convenience?

    • VitalSuit

      Guide wouldn’t have said to take the infantile cloud if you couldn’t do it on infantile mode, lol.

      • Izo Yukimura

        It didn’t when i asked.

  • Akuma

    Nope. Doing this in infantile mode didn’t work for me.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You must have missed a bauble somewhere, i did it in infantile mode and got the achievement

      • Akuma

        Damn. But thanks for the confirmation, anyways.

    World 2 Zone 2 Shortcut

  • Insyder

    Thanks for guide, just did this in inf mode and it counted. My suggestion would be to combine this with Associate of Secrets guide. Had I known I needed to go to every secret room for bauble achievement, I wouldn’t waste time doing secrets first >_< .

  • Henk

    Since all the chests and digspots are account bound per day, do you need to get this right in one try? So I don’t need to wait a day?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Digspots don’t count and chests are not account bound per day

  • Laixen

    after the chests before the last boss,on the right, there’s a room full of bears in the dark. just letting you guys know :P

    This is INSANE! Nice job on the guide! huge kudos.

  • Fire

    Dulfy,theres 2 rooms missing for associate of secrets and they are just next to where you already go with this guide.I don’t get why you didn’t add the picture of the hole in the ground and the room next to the 2nd chest in the waterfall to the guide so it does both achievements?

    • Fire

      Aside from that World 2 Zone 1 worked flawlessly.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      That is a great suggestion, not sure why I left out the hidden rooms in this guide. I have added them in thanks.

  • wot

    can this be done in infantile mode?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Yes

  • Poki#3

    The patch just now added an extra rock at point 36. you can no longer get to that chest by using the shortcut you show. You have to use the nearest log and ride it down to the very bottom and enter the cave in behind the waterfall (filled with bears) and make your way up through it to the chest.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      shortcut still works but the jump is a bit more tricky now, I am uploading a new now to show both methods

    • ManMan

      Less Tricky.way to use Methol 1 is try to stand as far (right when face yo waterfall)as possible then do the dodge jump. The jump is long enough so you can land on the higher long platform instead of the lower short step.

  • Gaïus

    It seems that the last update has change access to chest for bauble 36

  • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

    Guide has being updated to reflect the September 6 patch, specifically section 36.

  • Ianpact

    There is a 50 bauble chest on the platform with number 18. It’s to the right when you first walk in.

  • Sendra

    I can confirm this still works on infantile mode after the patch.

  • Altan Rapsied

    For the bauble 36…. how are we supposed to do it? I think there is problem about the platform, it looks shorter than your screen….

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Did you not refresh the page or something? I posted like two methods to get past bauble 36 AND a video like 8 hrs ago.

  • Zurito

    Hey Dulfy, not completely sure, but i can’t find one bauble on the guide, maybe i just missed reading it but cannot see it there; around 19-21 part where you say “go near the hillbillies…”, then you pick the blue baubles in the forest, there’s that tricky jump right below the hillbillies, where you jump some rocks in a little river and pick a yellow bauble (there are 2 mushrooms there that lead you back to the checkpoint near the hillbillies)

    • zurito

      I thought maybe would be better to post a pic… sorry if im just missing it on the guide, but apparently cannot see it

      • zurito

        Oks sorry, nevermind what i said, just noticed you wrote that bauble after the next checkpoint, i was afraid to keep going if i knew i was missing a bauble, so thats why i didnt read more lol

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          Yes the reason why it was last is because the hillbillie cave take you across the river and all the way to the next checkpoint so it is better to do it last.

    • zurito

      btw tyvm for the guides, all are being awesome and so useful

  • displayerror

    Hi, I found a dig spot in world 2 zone 1 here (where the first bear is): http://i.imgur.com/CdvCBpp.jpg

  • Syncourt

    I think you should note that you need to save your baubles for a key for the final chest. I followed this guide and happened to spend all my baubles at the shop near the end. Then when I got to the part about buying a key for the final chest behind the waterfall, I could not afford to get it with the baubles that remained in the zone.

    I have to start over again and be sure to save enough for the key at the end this time. This would be worth noting in the guide for other users who may fall for the same mistake and save them from repeating everything.

    • Coldman

      Just keep on digging man, and collect those 1 baubles!

  • Keiran

    Thanks for achievement dulfy :)

    Thanks Dulfy <3 I just did it and got both achievements ^_^

  • Spiderkite

    I have gone through this guide three times on both normal and infantile, and I still do not have the achievement.

  • Roii

    Does this still work on infantile mode?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      yes

  • Nene

    I’ve done this twice, once in infantile and once in normal and it says I’m still missing 1 room and haven’t got the bauble achievement? Is this guide still accurate?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Yup, you are likely missing shop ten and maybe bauble 34

      • Nene

        Found it. All sorted.

  • Krag

    I followed the guide and got the achievement on infantile mode. thanks

  • Powder Puff Pew Pew

    I found a hidden room that isn’t part of the achievments in World 2 Zone 1 that’s right above
    Check Point 8-9 on the wall. Ive searched through the images you have listed but it doesn’t match anything here. Clearly a hidden room though.

    • Powder Puff Pew Pew

      Ugh I cant figure out how to get up to it either. Ive tried searching around the log cabbin on the cliff but there appears to be some sort of path to it from somewhere. I cant tell how you get to it.

    • Esska

      When you say “Just above CP8-9 on the wall”, do you mean is it above the checkpoint in this guide, or literally over the checkpoint in the game? (Checkpoint between hillbillies and line of burn trees, i think is the one its refering to) Because that dark cave hole higher up on the cliff wall right before that checkpoint is actually the exit to another secret, the hill billy maze.

      • Powder Puff Pew Pew

        Its not literally on top of the CP8-9 its right near the Hill Billy Camp on the right wall. I’ve yet to figure out how to get up there unless I’m missing something here. Is that a legitimate hidden entrance?

  • Geekfox

    You can dig up a chest containing a Purple Bauble underneath the Toad past the #17 Blue Bauble.

  • Soup

    Well I’ve done this twice now, once with the text guide and once with the video guide and I haven’t gotten the achievement either time (secrets worked the first time.) Either something’s missing or the game really hates me right now.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Are you full on baubles?

      • Soup

        Not even close, I never went above 270.

        • Nitia Cheveallier

          it still works though.. I got mine.
          are you getting the last chest?? there is a video adaptation right below the first.

          • Nitia Cheveallier

            AND i had full pocket of Baubles most of the time

          • Soup

            I haven’t been able to make that jump so I’ve been getting the chest the hard way, through the bear cave.

            • Nitia Cheveallier

              yeeah the bear cave sux
              that is the way I had to go.. I dont think you can go the other way anymore

      • Soup

        Well I finally was able to do a runthrough with another person and figured out I was missing the bauble at the end of the hillybilly nightmare cave. I guess I got so distracted fighting all the hillbillies that I forgot to look for it before exiting.

  • Nitia Cheveallier

    Still works on infantile mode

  • Otherleft

    For bauble 36, (purple bauble) if you miss the jumps. at the bottom, behind the waterfall is a section filled with bears. The area is darkened but you can climb up from there. Defeat the bears and use torch/candle or gamma trick to lighten the area and climb up to the chest.
