GW2 Bachelor of Baubles World 2 achievement guide

GW2 Bachelor of Baubles world 2 achievement guide with locations of all the baubles you need to complete this achievement in World 2 Zone 2 of Super Adventure Box.This guide also includes Become the Master achievement, which should be completed at same time to save time. This guide uses information provided by TFMurphy

Tip for Become the Master achievement: There is a thing called Team Score under Super Adventure Box on top right corner of your screen. That score is how many you have assassins you have killed so use it to keep track for every checkpoint. This score ticks if you kill a frog etc so do not kill them until the frog pagoda (or just keep track of how many you killed).

Make sure you have a wooden whistle for the last hidden room! Can be brought at the shopkeeper right at starting point for World 2 Zone 3 for 250 baubles or at hidden room 5 in world 2 zone 1.

Required items: Wooden Whistle, Bombs, Whip, and Glove of Wisdom (this guide assume you have done World zone 2 at least once, if not then you will need to backtrack for 12 and 13 after you have got the glove from the first miniboss).

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.

12. Blue Bauble

You will now need to make a very hard jump to get to the cloud near Shortcut Eagle. If you can, try a dodge jump as it covers longer distance than a standard jump (put your thumb on spacebar and V and then press at same time). Push the block with your glove of wisdom to jump up there. Be very careful to not get sucked in by the shortcut eagle (you need to jump on the mountain nearby right after grabbing the bauble). Your first hidden room is also here which you can access by throwing a bomb on the top of the mountain covered with canopy. Buy your key here!

29. Blue Bauble/Assassins (6)

The Blue Bauble is inside the toad room which you can access after clearing the pagoda before it. That pagoda has 5 assassins (2 red, 3 white) on the various floors so make sure you kill them all.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-35

The toad room is tricky because it is going to affect your Team Score, which up to this point only reflected assassin kills if you have being avoiding the toads. The toads in this room are very hard to avoid so you will need to kill them and keep track. Your team score at this point should be 64 before the toads. There are exactly 6 toads in the room so subtract 6 from your team score to keep track of assassin totals.

The blue bauble is in the middle of the room but it is trapped with darts. Get close to it and then use your whip to grab it.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-37gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-38

Passing the toad room, there is a white assassin outside that you need to nab for the achievement.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-40

32. Blue Bauble/Assassins (2)

There is a blue bauble on the outer edge of the gong pagoda on the first floor. It is to the right of the checkpoint near the  hand symbol on the ground but you can’t reach it that way due to dart trap. Instead, go around it and grab it.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-42gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-41

You will also encounter two assassins (red) on the outer edge as well.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-43gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-44

Exit the shop and be extra careful following the outer edges of the cliff to get back to the pagoda before the toad pagoda. Take care to not fall to your death or you lose your key and have to buy it again. Make your way back to the checkpoint again at the gong pagoda.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-47

From the checkpoint, you are going the same way as you did when you went to the hidden room but this time jump on the grassy area to your left and climb up the tree with an owl. Get to the top of the tree and then hop to the pagoda. Then use the pagoda to hop on to the higher tree and then hop again back to the pagoda a floor higher.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-48gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-49gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-50

From the upper floor, go to back of the pagoda, you will see clouds you can climb to get to the roof. From the roof, you will need to make a giant leap of faith onto this tree sticking out of a giant rock to land on top of the rock.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-51gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-52

Once you are on top of of the big rock, bomb it to reveal your sixth hidden room. Bring your key and jump down. Inside the hidden room, bomb one of the walls to reveal the seventh hidden room. Carefully drop down to a chest below to get the purple bauble.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-54gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-53gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-55

Now jump off the chest and return to checkpoint.

34. Blue Bauble

Go back to the rock with the sixth hidden room, this time don’t go in. Now make a huge leap (make need to dodge jump if you can’t reach it) to the roof of the pagoda before the toad pagoda so you can grab the blue bauble there.

Gong pagoda assassin clearing (15)

There are no baubles inside the gong pagoda but if you want the assassin achievement you will need to clear every floor.Note that sometimes the white assassins are sticking together and may look like one when in fact it is two.

  • First floor should be cleared since you already killed them in 32
  • 1 white assassin on second floor
  • 3 (1 red, 2 white) on third floor
  • 2 white assassins on fourth floor
  • 2 red assassins on fifth floor
  • 4 white assassins on sixth floor
  • 3 (2 red, 1 white) from gong pagoda to next checkpoint.

Checkpoint 10 to Checkpoint 11    


Bauble count:6. Assassin count 8: . Total: 35 baubles, 90 assassins.

DO NOT ACTIVATE THE NEXT CHECKPOINT! THIS WILL MAKE THE RUN BACK TO SHORTCUT EAGLE IF YOU DIE THAT MUCH LONGER.

36. Blue Bauble/Assassins ( 8 )

Go Left, Right, Right, Forward, Forward and clear all the assassins on the way (6 assassins, 1 red, 5 white). This should give you a blue bauble at the end.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-63

Now jump off and respawn at checkpoint, go forward, left this time and kill the two assassins (2 reds). This will bring you to the next checkpoint and give the the Become the Master achievement. That is 90 assassins in total. Your team score should be 96 assuming you only killed the six toads at the toad pagoda.

DO NOT ACTIVATE THE NEXT CHECKPOINT! THIS WILL MAKE THE RUN BACK TO SHORTCUT EAGLE IF YOU DIE THAT MUCH LONGER.

37-41. Blue Baubles (5)

Using the infantile mode rainbow, you need backtrack all the way back to the shortcut eagle and make that tricky jump one more time. Now while on the eagle, you need to stay on it until the last minute to get the 5 baubles that you need.

You do not need to collect any baubles during the shortcut eagle flight to get the achievement, just stay at the head and when you hear wings flapping move away from the head. The head protects you from bees in front and those coming in the back that you failed to avoid won’t knock you off.

gw2-bachelor-of-baubles-world-2-achievement-guide-64

If you stay until the last second of the flight, you will get ported to the top of the bell and go there to collect 5 baubles.

Kill the boss

Kill the boss will give you the Bachelor of Baubles achievement at the end.

  • Jiuzi

    Nice, :) can not wait to see the video guide =)

  • Marlon

    Great work!

  • Suth

    Thanks a lot for the guide! After yesterday’s patch, it might be benificial to do the achievement on normal difficulty in order to obtain a lot of baubles from assassins.

    The jump to the short cut eagle actually was really easy before the change to the spinning flowers, as one could just use that with the right angle to get over.

    • Suth

      Okay, I seriously supoort doing this on infantile mode, backtracking to shortcut eagle near the end is a pain on normal mode.

  • Hanatash

    Great, now I managed to get the Become the Master achievement, but not Bachelor of Baubles. This game just randomly decides which achievement it’s gonna give me.

    I guess it’s yet another run through this long bloody map. <_<

    • Belle

      You should really do it on infantile, i just finished and although the eagle is such a pain and should be done earlier, its a lot easier with the clouds

      • Hanatash

        I did do it in infantile. It’s just bloody annoying because I had to do the map 5 times to get the 2 achievements, even though I should have got them both on my second try.

        Now on to zone 3…

  • Nick

    I cant seem to finish this. I got my Become the master achievement but when Im backtracking I keep falling though a rainbow… (the one with the pirahnas and giant blue squid)

    • Nick

      I found my way, completed the eagle, got the baubles and the last one. STILL NO ACHIEVEMENT :(((

  • Dark

    Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4
    12. Blue Bauble
    The flower jump is somehow bugged, actually all of them. No matter where you aim, they make you jump to the actual direction of the jump. Which means, that it got bugged somehow after the newest patch.

    If anyone has the same issue as me, please confirm.

    • Nick

      They’ve made them that way now

      • Dark

        Is there a way to make them turn to the other way?

        • Hanatash

          No, all flowers now put you specifically where they’re supposed to put you. You cannot control the trajectory in any way AFAIK.

          Note that you don’t actually need the flowers to do any of the jumps.

  • Haros

    A question. Does the short cut eagle get you a checkpoint ? Or could you go through that. Die and progress normally? I’d prefer doing it on normal but backtracking after the eagle would be a real pain…

    [EDIT] Ugh… it makes a checkpoint before the part with teleporters. That’s a shame :/
    [EDIT 2] But backtracking isn’t that bad, makes it interesting ;)

    • Hanatash

      While I haven’t tried it with the eagle, the worm in W1 tags all the checkpoints it passes, so imagine it’s the same here.

  • Aes

    After spending quite a lot of time in this zone for this particular achievement (doing it without this guide) Just before i got the last bauble, i was literally stuck inside one of the wooden beams you use to hit the gong and couldn’t get out…safe to say i didn’t get the achievement completed >.> But thanks for this guide dulfy! It’ll make my second run through much quicker and hopefully i’ll be a little less stuck =D

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Next time that happens try use shovel and see if you can dig out a bunny to kill you. Some people said it works. Anyways I had that bug occured to me twice early on so I learned to never move until the wooden beam stops swinging

  • Sephryn

    near the end, after the portal puzzle with the assassins, where you have to jump on the wooden poles;
    if you die falling off of them, for some reason, it takes away two of your lives instead of one,
    so very annoying

  • Firestrike

    Required items: Flute, Bombs, Whip

    You didn’t say I need the Gloves of Wisdom,waste of time now.

    • Magnusito

      You must be kidding

      • Vigmaor Kappi

        You can get the glove as you approach the dojo, then you can backtrack. It’s not the end of the world

    • Sokan

      if you’re stubborn like me you’ll try to move forward and kill the mini boss and then backtrack after you get the gloves, but i understand your disappointment because dulfy always assume everyone’s experienced

  • Xtn

    Hey Dulfy, thank you for your amazing work, it’s incredible.. Are you planning a video of this?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Yes still 3 hrs left on upload, it is a 30 minute video and I did it in 1080p for some reason so size is quite big

      • erwgw

        You could mention we need the glove…

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          You get the glove from the mini boss. I assumed you have at least done this once before getting all the baubles etc. if not then you can always backtrack.

  • Guest

    36. Blue Bauble/Assassins ( 8 )… You can save 1 live when you jump on the next platform with the teleporter and take the one that farest away from you to get to the checkpoint :)

    TYVM for the guide, you are awesome!

  • Tyler

    Great guide, it helped me get the bauble achievement. One question though: how do you get inside the gong pagoda? I can’t go up the ramp because of the dart traps, and there aren’t any other outside entrances.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You avoid the dart traps, there is a way to avoid them and go up the ramps. I will have the video ready in half an hour if all goes well and you can check it out.

  • Muzko

    Is the video on the way? =D

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Video is up now!

      • Muzko

        Thx :3

  • poebel

    Just a hint if you have problems with the shortcut eagle:
    You can buy 9 small health pots (5 baubles each) and constantly keep using them during the flight (just stand on the head).
    -> You should end up with one heart left

  • Sephryn

    Wow, the shortcut eagle was the most annoying part, I think,
    but I did it finally.
    Thanks for the guide, and the tips to help to complete it, they’re very helpful.

    Even with 4 hearts and no potions, it is possible to complete the eagle with one heart left,
    if you time the bees/birds right.
    I found that if you turn the game music off and environment/other sounds up,
    you can hear the bird wings flapping sound easier, to know when to move to the side, on the eagles wings;
    also, if you hear the wings flapping noise and see the bees coming towards you,
    at the same exact time,
    sometimes it’s just better to take a hit, standing at the head of the eagle, rather than risk falling off the eagle and dying/starting over.

    Also, at the boss, if doing it in infantile mode,
    I found that if you stand on the right rainbow bridge,
    the one next to the one you used to get to the boss cage, on the right;
    you can stand at the edge of the bridge, hit the cage and it only takes one step back to move away, when the bosses head moves (to attack you).

    • Sephryn

      Although, I was using the upgrade default weapon the nunchucks “chain sticks” from the hidden shop to attack the boss,
      and I’m not sure if it had a longer reach or not than the sword,
      so it might have been easier to reach the boss with those?
      I found it definitely seemed easier and faster to kill other things like assassins with the upgrade

  • good jorb

    I like how you gave us a warning that we need the push skill in order to do this

    Required items: Flute, Bombs, Whip

    • Neyare

      You forcibly acquire it by following the guide, it’s not a prerequisite.

  • Neyare

    Protip for Shortcut Eagle: Instead of listening to the bees, just turn around and look backwards. You’ll see them home in on you and you can just sidestep them at the last second while staying safely behind the head to prevent frontal bees from assailing you. Makes for an easy trip with no health loss.

    Also, with regard to item 32 in the guide, I found that the dart traps on the outside of the gong pagoda are actually fake. You can run right past the one pointed at in the screenshot on 32, as well as the one on the other side of the pagoda. My guess is they’re disabled in Infantile Mode.

  • Azure Prower

    Followed guide to the letter. Got all achievements but the bauble one.

    • Murth

      Tried it 2 times now, not getting bauble one either.

      • Harnace

        Me neither..

      • RhapsodyBD

        Well it seems I’m not the only one

      • Murth

        Did it a third time now,still no achievement.
        Seems it’s bugged for some ppl.

        • Murth

          Finally got it, this time I did it in normal mode…

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      It seems everytime I post a bauble related guide up, there are people who didn’t get it while others got it fine. Make sure you check the following

      1. Actually grabbed all baubles – sometimes it is good to check, especially if say a chest contain two baubles and you only grabbed one.
      2. You did not zone out to Super Adventure box, dc etc – i.e. did it in one go.
      3. You kill the final boss of the zone, achievement isn’t rewarded until the final boss is killed.

      • Thervold

        It worked perfectly for me. Baubles, secrets, and assassins all in one go.

      • Azure Prower

        Met all the requirements.

        Don’t want to do it again.

        Saved myself the headache and got all the achievements required for the title minus the Bachelor and Master of Baubles that isn’t needed. It’s really not worth the 10 achievement points.

      • Morten Møller Jakobsen

        I can confirm as well that you must have missed something. Followed the guide to the letter, got both achievements.

  • wef

    Couldn’t you type EARLIER to not touch the next checkpoint?! geez. If i can’t make it now anymore then 2h in the back…

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Touching the next checkpoint adds some more jumps for the run back to the shortcut eagle but it isn’t end of the world. Also, I wrote the warning right after the previous checkpoint, any earlier and it would not be irrelevant.

      Don’t exaggerate it to 2hours and don’t make multiple accounts saying the same thing. I can see your IP.

      • wef

        I don’t make multi acc lol. I just couldn’t edit my previous message. I tried jumping back in multiple ways but that did not work. I even got to other platforms with teleporters but they kept teleporting me to the final tele at the checkpoint.

        Also it did take 2 hours because it was basically: watch 2 minutes of vid -> repeat, watch 2 minutes of vid -> repeat. I wanted to be sure I don’t miss any.

        PS you use double negative “would not be irrelevant”. Either “would not be relevant” or “would be irrelevant”. Double negative means it “would be relevant”

        • Nitia Cheveallier

          omg a grammar Nazi
          who cares!!!
          At least Dulfy made the guide in the first place.

      • wef

        On a side note, is it possible to have an option on youtube for faster vids? Would love to be able to watch it at 2x or 4x speed.

  • Blinkroot

    I just started following this guide and I’m right in front of the first checkpoint. I’ve killed 9 assassins, confirmed by the team score. In section5-6 there was 2 white assassins and 1 red.

    • Blinkroot

      Also, in section 7 there were only 2 assassins for me. I guess this could be where some people are missing one if it can appear in different places. (I hadn’t opened the gate previously) Oh well, just sharing. Love the help Dulfy.

      • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

        Yes it is only 2 because the red assassin spilled over to 5-6.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      No it is only 2 white, the red assassin you killed is the one rushed in from after the checkpoint and is part of the 3 red assassins around the first pagoda. It doesn’t matter if you open the checkpoint or not, that assassin will rush you if you get close

  • Mistaya

    So I followed this video to the T, but I didn’t get the Become the Master achievement. I noticed at the first pagoda, you said there would be 3. Yet there were only 2. Possible bug I guess? If so, then I guess I won’t be getting this achievement now. :(

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      It is not a bug, as I replied to the other poster, the reason it is 2 because the 3rd one rushed you at the checkpoint, rest assured, he is accounted for.

      • Mistaya

        So I’m doing this a 2nd time, my bad. lol Been following your video guide (which thank you so much that you do this! :) ) and did not notice one assassin. The pagoda just after the first bell/checkpoint, at the top in the room for the next checkpoint, I did not notice you attack an assassin that you can peep between a door frame and a wall that you can’t break yet. I got it now! Thank you :)

  • Eddie

    Guide works fine if you missed anything re-read it

  • dxsun

    Hi, i am stucked at cpoint 10 to get to 5 baubles near the boss gong. Is there a way to go back to the eagle from cpoint 10 on normal mode or there is a way to get there after cpoint 10?

    p/s: I finished the achievement for secrets and assassin.

  • Mr Iain

    got all the achivements thx o great master of all nerds there are

    • Mr Iain

      and a tip for those who have problems with the eagle crab a few healing potions (best the greater ones..^^) stand behinde his head go afk with finger on healpot if not lazy enough dodge sometimes forward when they come to sting you :P

  • Lanfairya

    So to make the eagle part 100% easier turn around, you can see the swarm of bees coming and just generally hang out int he middle. I kept failing it like a total loser until my guildie was like “oh turn around”

  • Jana

    How come we don’t have the clouds? This guide is useless if you don’t get the rainbow clouds. Can someone elaborate?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Do it on Infantile mode

  • Day Trooper

    Just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for this and the other SAB guides!! I can’t imagine doing these achievements (especially baubles) without them – thx again SO MUCH!! :)

  • Sandro Patanè

    already got master achievement 2 days ago doing bachelor of secrets, but i have missed something in the way and i didn’t got bachelor of baubles.. i’ll try today ^^ thx for the guide

  • Suth

    Some things have changed around the gong pagoda.
    1. There is a new cloud that allows to skip the toad room (one needs to catch the blue bauble out of it ouf course)
    2. The dart trap that used to forbid just going around the pagoda is deactivated. So one has more options at this point.

    Both things are valid for infantile mode, only.

  • szyn

    I’ve got only 3 assassins in the top floor of gong pagoda ;/ no achievement…

    • szyn

      ok, got the missing assassin ;)

  • Xander

    Me and 2 friends did this today, i read the guide and they followd me, but me and 1 of my friends did’t get the Bachelor of Baubles achievement but 1 of us got it, the only difrens is that the guy who got it made the shortcut eagle on the first try and we who did’t get it fell of and had to do it again.
    Could this be a bug?!

    • Murth

      I would guess it’s a bug but don’t think it’s related to him falling of the shortcut eagle the first time. I’m not getting the achievement either and I’m not failling the shortcut eagle :p

    • Zens

      I think it s a bug, I failed the eagle countless times, but got the achievement finally.

  • Findan

    Hi Dulfy, first off a huge thank you for all the hard work you put into
    these guides! They are greatly appreciated, and have been a lifesaver for me over the past year :)

    I’ve been reading thru this guide in preparation for doing these achievements later
    today. Just spotted something – at the top of the “Checkpoint 1 to
    Checkpoint 2″ section it states 18 assassins, for a total of 23 but I see the bottom of the section shows 15 assassins, so I am going to assume 15 is the correct total. Might want to update that to avoid confusion :)

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      thanks, corrected :)

  • Kale

    Followed the video guide for baubles, and got every single one as outlined in the video. Sadly, no achievement. I wonder if its a game bug, or what, because I was alt-tabbing and pausing for every bauble lol.

  • Moooo

    Why not put the shortcut eagle near the beginning of the guide? Just grab the baubles on top of the bell after the shortcut eagle and then suicide and continue collecting baubles where you left off. This saves on the 5 minute walks every time you get knocked off or die to the bees. Would’ve saved me 25 minutes anyway.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      No because it doesn’t work like that. The shortcut eagle saves you to the checkpoint that is right before the teleporters w/ the assassins if you take it all the way to the end. Unless you feel like backtracking from the end of the zone to collect pretty much 90% of the baubles..

      • Moooo

        Ohhh woops, didn’t know it automatically saved like a checkpoint after the ride.

  • Moo moo

    One of the worst living stories ever. I am on 6 hours on word 2 zone 2 doing this guide, messed up twice and stuck on the long “shortcut” eagle cause I keep getting knocked off. Hope world 3 is better.

    • Zens

      For the eagle, when you still get knocked off, get 9 healing pots, stay at the head and just ignore the ones from behind, heal through it. With 5 hearts (live bar) you never get down to zero.

      @ Dulfy, great guide!

  • Curiousmoth

    Well, I followed the guide to the letter, spend two hours checking and rechecking everything… no achievement. Didn’t fall off the eagle or anything, got every bauble, killed every assassin, went to every secret area. Got the master of killing assassins ‘chieve, got the secrets ‘chieve, but no baubles ‘chieve. I think it might be a bug or something because there’s just no way I missed any. I read through the guide again going, “Nope got that one, nope got that one, nope got that one.”

    At least I can have another go without needing to get every assassin :3

  • Powder Puff Pew Pew

    So what does killing assassin do for the achievement? Is it part of the requirement? Cuz im doing the Bauble thing without killing all of the assassins.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      It is for a separate achievement called Become the Master, if you don’t want it then there is no need to to.

      • Powder Puff Pew Pew

        Ah ok cuz the information above at the header of the page doesn’t make sense. That’s what was confusing me in the way you worded killing the Assassins ~ Become The Master achievement. In the second sentence Tip: The wording is what had me thinking it wasn’t a requirement but recommended as a way to keep track of the baubles.

  • Ulgren

    Hey! Also, in the Eagle Shortcut, if you stand at the head and watch the bees that are coming from behind, you can use your Wisdom Glove to push them away and avoid having to move at all. If your timing is right, it works!

  • raylen

    I believe ive found the “bug” people are getting. between cp1 and cp2 what this guide has listed as (8.) there was no bauble for me this is the 3rd time ive “finished” this achieve following guide to the letter but the first time I noticed it wasn’t there. its on the main path so I always assumed I got it. hope this helps all the bugged players. report it in hopes they will fix it. luckily its early on so you can find out if that’s the problem fairly quick and easy.

  • displayerror

    I just got both the bauble and assassin achievement following this guide. I fell down from the shortcut eagle and I died multiple times but I was still able to get the achievements (just as long as I never went back to SAB home). Also, as Lanfairya posted down below, turning around on the shortcut eagle and just standing behind the head will make the trip on the shortcut eagle rage-free. Just remember to turn off ‘double tap to evade’ in the options. Thanks for the guide, Dulfy!

  • Mantai

    (sry, bad english)right now im inside sab and i killed all of the assasins but didnt get the achievment so i want to know if there is a new assasin or do i need to kill the boss before i get the achievment
    its 4:18 am right now and i need to know, plz answer quick

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You do not need to kill the boss to get the achievement, achievement pops up as soon as the last assassin is killed.

      • Manai

        thx for the quick answer
        still dont know where the last forgotten assasin is -.-
        (just by the way—best guides ever—ty)

  • Forkada

    some1 done all baubles in w2z3???? mb some1 wrote guide for that achievment?

  • Kevin J. Smith

    This guide was perfect. I got all the hidden rooms, assassins, and baubles. However, I got d/c before fighting the boss, so I have to run through for just the baubles (totally possible as I made a list on notebook paper of where they all are).

    My only issue was the leap of faith onto that one pagoda corner. First day, I quit after trying for over an hour. Second day, I nailed it on first try. Going for bauble achievement right now, so we’ll see how day #3 goes.

    I don’t see the difficulty in getting to the eagle shortcut. The jump in easy if you jump at edge of platform.
    Personally, my dislike of this zone is all the assassins…they’re a pain in the butt, but if you have the chain stick upgrade…you kill them a lot easier.

    • Kevin J. Smith

      took 2 attempts at the leap of faith to nail it…just have faith in yourself…you can do it.

  • Xenocide

    3 hours later and 2 continues had the 4 achievements (Bubbles, secrets, assasins and eagle) in a solo run. Followed the guide perfectly. Thanks for it, it was great. I ran out of bubbles for two of the chests but after the racoon I had the bubbles for both of them. I recommend to add that information to the guide to avoid people keep digging for bubbles to buy the key. Also state at first that must be done in infantile mode. The hardest parts were the Racoon (Keep fighting till he dies), The gong pagoda (Really slow to climb and a short path indication would be ashome) and the shortcut (done with 7 potions). Thanks a lot!

  • Powder Puff Pew Pew

    OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m gona fucking rage quit! Seriously, falling off the eagle and back tracking over and over again is seriously annoying. Should do the eagle right off the bat to save yourself the agony I’m going through right now UGH. Specially if you miss that last jump at the eagle >.< Going on 2 hrs now!!!!!

    • Powder Puff Pew Pew

      Ya fuck this shit, Most time consuming BS Achievment ever. 2 hrs 10 mins to get the “5 Baubles” from the fucking eagle. Not to mention the 2 1/2 hrs it took alone for the entire map so around 4 1/2 hrs almost. Back tracking was the most frustrating part of the fucking bauble hunt to the eagle.

      • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

        Don’t take your rage out on me, I didn’t design it. You have to backtrack as the shortcut eagle saves you to the checkpoint before the teleporters otherwise.

        • Powder Puff Pew Pew

          Heres an idea, how about you detail your guide to just activate all the clouds all the way to just before the teleporters then run back to the eagle. That way if the person fails or cant dodge because of latency 1-2 seconds long they can atleast rage quit in style. After completing the most difficult part of the map then go back and kill the assassins, and collect the baubles. I cant dodge at all, the best I can do is wiggle around and hope to avoid the damn owls. The rest of the map was easy compaired to humping to the eagle and failing over and over.

          • Sty

            According to another post, you can use the glove to expel the owls (I did not test this strategy, but it probably makes this part easier).

            Personally, I just stayed at the head of the eagle with 9 potions… Not elegant but it worked.

  • sarielv

    Followed this guide today and got all the achievements. For some reason, one of the assassins didn’t spawn, or I didn’t credit for him in my score (step 29, only 4 assassins on the pagoda) but I got the achievement all the same. Thanks guys :)

  • Soup

    3 and a half hours later….I am never entering 2-2 again. Thank you Dulfy for helping me get all of the 2-2 achievements in one go.

  • RAWR

    STUPID SHORTCUT EAGLE

  • Skyrn

    Shortcut eagle EASY mode: Buy health upgrade. Stand by shortcut eagles head and do not move. Just heal through it as the bees hit you. Saves you so much rage

  • PAXX

    i’m stuck inside the log in front gong before the boss fight, i’m gonna have to do is all over again :'(

  • Kevin J. Smith

    In reading all this bitching and complaining…let’s stop and think for a minute.
    Dulfy is proving you a service, so you don’t have to spend 100-plus hours figuring this out on your own. In essence, this is a cheat guide and some of you are complaining about how it can’t be made easier for you still.
    Dulfy did not design this world/zone, ANet did and I agree…it was a pain in the butt. However, I did it all in less than 2 hours and I did get a d/c before the final boss, so I had to re-do the bauble portion only and that took less than 1 hour.

    Personally, I only found that leap of faith from the cliff onto the top corner of the pagoda to be truly challenging. Day 1, I spent over an hour and gave up, Day 2, I nailed it on the first try. Day 3, it took two attempts.

    Jumping to the eagle shortcut, I don’t see how people thing it is hard….and the eagle itself is really easy as well.

    Here is my 411 for the eagle.
    Stand behind the head, but face either left or right.
    Wave 1 – four flocks from behind. Face to the left and before first wave comes back up and then go forward and face towards the front. The next 3 waves will hit you and you will lose 3 hearts. Consume two potions to re-fill health completely.
    Wave 2 – three flocks from behind. Don’t move at all. Consume two potions to re-fill health completely.
    Wave 3 – four flocks from behind. Re-peat the same procedure as that for the first wave.
    You’ll momentarily see one flock of birds on a 4th wave, but you’ll zone out to the pillars with the 5 baubles before that hit you. I haven’t died on the bird yet with this method and I’ve done this shortcut with my main and 6 toons.

    Bottom line though…this is a game and Dulfy is a great service. Back off attacking them and if the game is so frustrating…QUIT!!!

  • Ericka

    Just done it.. followed everything, did not skip anything.. and still did not get all baubles for archievement. though that all bugs are fixed? :(

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      Ya, there are no bugs as far as I know now. Might have missed a bauble somewhere :(

      • Ericka

        Omg I did. Straight the first one. Damit. That is why i did not realise :((

    • samuel jenks

      make sure you dont have max baubles when you kill the boss. stand in the chest until the very end of the countdown. ive gotten achievements after the loading screen in sab before. dont go to the hub or to the bad end room. i havent tested that last one but just to be safe.

  • Patrick Justus

    they changed or added a block at that very high jump down to the pogoda corner and now i cannot even get close to landing on it for the bachelors

    • ManMan

      If you are taliking about the high jump to the pogoda(34.)the new block actually telling you where you should jump and a dodge jump’s length is more then enough to land the pogoda.

      • SiderFace

        Indeed. I thought the rock kinda guided me to the exact jumping point.

        I also have proven to more than 20 people (doubters to my theory) that a regular jump and the dodge-roll jump achieve the exact same distance. I’ve since then grown tired of proving it, but anyone who is interested can pm me in game (name = ‘Ahsitaka’).
        I think the misconception comes from he fact that in the moment of take off fromt he ground, a player will actually jut SLIGHTLY forward before leaving the ground, giving them a small increment of distance forward to where they really think they are jumping from. This gives them an accidental perfect usage of the maximum distance a player’s feet go before falling (without jumping). If a player uses this maximum edge distance on a regular jump and are holding forward for the duration of the jump, they will reach the EXACT same point of landing at the end of their jump.
        A little bit of practice in a safe area will make it easy to master. Just go anywhere you won’t die if you fall, and test how far you can go before you fall without jumping. Try jumping later-than-earlier while learning that maximum edge length.
        Think “Diddy Kong” in DKC series :P (and i don’t mean the roll jump there either. Diddy’s animation let made it easy to jump earlier than max as well due to the appearance of nearly running off the edge)

  • SiderFace

    The word “guide” is misleading here. A guide gives you a general stucture, and guideline to follow. When in fact, this guide will potentially make your quest for Babuels much longer and harder if you do not follow it WORD-FOR-WORD , STEP-FOR-STEP!
    It was not explained that skipping that checkpoint was critical to the caus of not losing HOURS of your time on something that is not fun.
    Also, the Eagle can be done after you have infantile clouds up to the point of the bell. This will save you a massive amount of time. Dying and retrying at the end of your quest is no different than dying and trying again part way though.
    But if you die when only partially completed and decide you want to quit for that day, you are not giving up your entire level’s worth of progress.

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      You are suppose to follow it step by step. That is the point of the guide. Also, if you do not skip that checkpoint, it adds a couple minutes to your run back but it isn’t a game over.

    • Vin Dy

      I don’t mean to be a douche, but your impression of this guide is not Dulfy’s fault. Out there exist several guides and versions on how to tackle this achievement. If you didn’t like parts of it, just point it out without any insult or insinuation.

      Heck, you are just using this for free so just be grateful. However, if you did donate to her, I will just shut up then and let you say whatever you please.

  • SiderFace

    P.S.
    Despite my raging, I DO have something constructive to offer ^-^

    Turn around and watch the bees coming in from behind the Eagle. =D
    Just be sure to get back into center position behind his head again. And I suggest waiting till the last second to strafe to the side as you risk being hit be the crashing cluster of bees from the Eagle’s front on two occasions.
