    For the achievement “It Was An Ambush” I find really easy to use whip on the first assassin and keep him perma stunned. If you do that, additional foes won’t spawn and the ride will be extremely relaxing :D

    • Laixen

      or, if you’re doing it with a party, stand in the middle and just spam hit in the direction the assassins are spawned, and if you need food or anything, just use whip to retrieve :D

    • shodannet

      I did it by not killing the white assassin when it spawns. I would just avoid its ninja stars until the end of the raft and voila :D

  • MaTHzz

    @Dulfy: You can still show the guide for the Baubles in W2Z3, instead of freezing it so people can’t look through the guide. It might work for some people, since many people have already done it. Re-open it, please!

  • Metalized

    Does anybody know whether the armor of Ketto (the asura in the sphere thing of the cutscene) is available in the game as equipment?
    I really like the style of it prettey much. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

  • The Spirit Molecule

    Supah-Awesome !

  • LunarStar

    For the ‘Tip toe’ achievement, are you sure we can do that in infantile mode? I just did it right now without aggroing the hillbillies and I did use stealth to pass them. But when I defeated the boss, theres no achievement :/

    • Howie

      Don’t use stealth. I didn’t and I got the achievement

    • Madoka

      I did it in infantile mode, I did it with stealth and I got the achievement. But it was in the very beginning when the guide is just up, not sure any recent patch mess things up.

    • Sty

      I also had trouble getting this achievement with stealth (before the patch). You can just get around the hillbillies by jumping between the shop and the tree.

    • Gabriel Aurelius

      Just did it. It works now.

  • Togashi

    “Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A.” sounds like the Konami code : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konami_Code

  • xxAshkorexx

    idk if you saw this yet Dulfy, but supposedly Master of Baubles World 2 should be obtainable after the patch today.

  • Aurus

    Apparently, if any player in the group does not get hit by bananas, everyone gets the achievement at the end. So doing this in a group makes it much easier.

  • GamingMex

    I think its worth mentioning that if you want “It Was An Ambush” achievement use the whip on the assassins when running thru it solo. Only one assassin will appear and u can keep him stunned for the whole raft ride.

    Hello everyone. I am kinda new in gw2 and this is my first time posting and participating in the adventure box event. In all of the videos and guides i see those clouds that makes the hole stage easier and fast to finish but what i need to do to make them appear?

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      When you are in the little house, go to the happy cloud instead of talking to the villager, this will take you to infantile mode.

      • Nick

        Oh ok thanks alot. Does that means that the other cloud open some other mode?

        • Zeus

          Yes. The unhappy cloud is super hard “tribulation” mode. The villager is normal mode.

          • Nick

            Cool thank you now it will be much easier to complete rest of the achivements =)
