GW2 Master of Baubles World 2 achievement guide showing you how to get all 63 baubles in World 2 Zone 3 for this achievement. Included also are all 17 hidden rooms so you can complete Master of Secrets World 2 at the same time. Guide is created using information provided by TFMurphy.
Required items: Wooden Whistle, Bombs, Glove of Wisdom. You must also have physically learned the 332331 song from the last hidden room in W2Z2.
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.
- You only get the achievement at the end when you kill the final boss
Start to Checkpoint 1
1. Blue bauble
The first bauble you will find is just around the corner from the starting area.
2. Yellow Bauble
As you go up the slope, look back and do a couple of jumps to get this yellow bauble tacked away on the ledge.
3. Yellow Bauble
Go up a bit more from that yellow bauble and drop down to your right to find this yellow bauble.
4. Blue Bauble
From that yellow bauble, drop down again to your right and enter the maze. You do not need to go through the maze. Instead, keep going left and you will find a blue bauble hidden away behind some trees.
Up ahead is a wall you can open up using the gatekeeper song (332331, make sure you have physically learned it ingame at the last hidden room in W2Z2 or simply pressing these buttons won’t work). Inside is a climbable area and at the very top you can drop down to the other side. The other side have an icy cave with two polar bears. Near the second polar bear is a wall you can bomb to reveal your first hidden room for the Master of Secrets World 2 achievement.
Pushing the door inside open will lead you to the area with the Raccoon Kingpin but you can jump off and respawn if you don’t feel like tackling him.
5. Blue Bauble
After you have respawned or exited the maze, keep following the infantile clouds until you arrive at an area just below a ledge with a polar bear on top. Bomb the right wall here for your second hidden room.
Once you have dispatched that polar bear, look behind you and to the right. You will see a bauble there on the pillar. It is fairly hard to reach that bauble so you may have to use a dodge jump or crack out your whip to try and snag that bauble.
There aren’t any baubles rest of the way to the checkpoint so head to the shop near the first checkpoint to get your third hidden room. You will also want to grab a key from the shop there as the next bauble is contained in a chest right after the checkpoint.
Checkpoint 1 to 2
6-7. Red Baubles (2)
Past the first checkpoint you will spot a polar bear guarding a chest. Use the key you just got from the shop to open the chest to find two red baubles.
8. Yellow Bauble
This next one is a bit tricky, from the chest, you will want to head left and then jump into that small corridor in the wall. Go through that corridor and at the end of it drop down to retrieve a yellow bauble.
9. Yellow Bauble
The next yellow bauble is just below the chest on the ground not far from the checkpoint
From that bauble, take two lefts and you will find your fourth hidden room.
10-13. Blue Baubles (4)
On the next area with the four mouths that blow winds, you will find four baubles neatly lined up. Take your time and grab all 4 baubles.
14. Blue Bauble
Backtrack to the first blue bauble of the quadruple and then jump down to grab this blue bauble that is located right undernearth the first blue bauble.
15. Yellow Bauble
From the area where bauble 14 is located, go forward and take the left opening. You will find a door you can open with your push glove that reveals a yellow bauble that was at the raccoon area earlier. Jump off and respawn at checkpoint and grab a key from the first shop.
16. Blue Bauble
Keep following the infantile clouds and after you take the purple teleporter look back to find a blue bauble.
17. Blue Bauble
On the bottom level of the long climb upwards to checkpoint 2 you will find a blue bauble at the very bottom.
18. Green Bauble
Near the middle of the climb is a green bauble which is fairly easy to reach on infantile mode as you will be trekking right into it.
19. Yellow Bauble
The last bauble before the checkpoint is near the top of the climb, it is a bit off the rainbow path.
Checkpoint 2 to 3
20. Blue Bauble
Drop your key off at the checkpoint and then follow the path to jump down through an opening in the wall. While you are dropping down, keep your eye on a blue bauble half buried in the pillar.
21. Blue Bauble
Keep following the infantile cloud for a bit and when it does a 180 reversal jump off it and use the purple teleporter up in the mountain with the jumping goat. After you get teleported, look for a blue bauble near the teleporter.
22. Blue Bauble
Use your torch on the nearby frozen waterfall and push the teleporter block from that area out to the mouth. Hop on that teleporter and get ported a new area where you where need to push a square block to an opening in the window so you can hop down and grab this blue bauble. Make sure you use your glove on the door (this will open a shortcut) and then use the teleport nearby to get ported to the next area.
23. Yellow Bauble
After you have taken the teleporter, head up to the area on the right to grab a yellow bauble in the middle.
24. Purple Bauble
Jump down to the area below with two more bananas and then hop on an opening in the wall nearby where you where find a chest and a door opened w/ your push glove that leads back to the checkpoint. Grab the key you left at the checkpoint to unlock this chest containing a purple bauble.
Once you have grabbed that bauble, take the shortcut I mentioned earlier (under 22) to quickly get back to the area with the spikes and bananas. This time, don’t jump off to the second area but instead throw a bomb down at the wall in the corner. Jump through the hole and quickly tap W to land on a pillar mid-fall. This will be your fifth hidden room.
From that pillar, jump to the ledge on your right and go around to get to the other side. You can throw another bomb at the wall to reveal another hole. Jump from the very edge of the icy ledge to get inside the hole. Reaching the hole opening will reward you the sixth hidden room achievement so there is no need to drop off the opening. If you do happen to drop down to the other side, you can keep jumping down to the very bottom where you can find a teleporter to port you out and respawn to get back.
Once you have both hidden rooms, drop down to the shop at the bottom and buy a key from the shopkeeper and carry it all the way to checkpoint 2. Drop it off at the checkpoint
25. Blue Bauble
Take the shortcut teleporter at the checkpoint and then this time go left and drop down on the polar bear guarding the lone blue bauble.
26-28. Yellow Baubles (3)
Drop down from behind the polar bear to the very bottom platform and then hop on the pillar near the edge and drop to your left. From there you will find a wall you can open with the 332331 song that reveals 3 yellow baubles. This also counts as the seventh hidden room.
29. Purple Bauble
Go right after you have grabbed all 3 yellow baubles and at the end you will find another wall you can open with a purple bauble inside. This room also counts as the eighth hidden room. Once you have grabbed that purple bauble, drop to the rainbow bridges below and backtrack to checkpoint 1 to grab another key that you will need to carry to checkpoint 2.
30. Purple Bauble
Take the shortcut teleporter again and this time go left again. Right before you reach the top platform with the teleporter, jump to your left and you will find a wall with an opening you can jump through.
Once you are at the bottom, use the glove to push the door open and carefully go around the ledge on your right. You should see a frozen waterfall you can open with your torch and a purple bauble behind it. Respawn at the checkpoint once you are done with it.
31. Yellow Bauble
WARNING: DO NOT SAVE TO THE NEXT CHECKPOINT YET
Bring one of your keys and take the shortcut teleporter again. Go up left and before you reach the top platform with the teleporter, you will want to drop down this little hole. You will find a yellow bauble once you are at the bottom.
32. Yellow Bauble
WARNING: DO NOT SAVE TO THE NEXT CHECKPOINT YET
From that last yellow bauble, keep dropping down and at the very bottom you will find another yellow bauble. Pick that bauble up and find a teleporter nearby that will take you to the other side of the chasm.
WARNING: DO NOT SAVE TO THE NEXT CHECKPOINT YET
Make sure you bring your key with you as you pass the teleporter and drop it off once you arrive at the other side. Go up the icy ramp, kill the polar bear and then suicide to get back to checkpoint 2. Grab the remaining key and take the teleporter shortcut and this time go all the way to the platform at the top with the teleporter.
You now should have 2 keys on the other side of the chasm. Make sure you have 2 keys before hitting the next checkpoint.
Checkpoint 3 to 4
33-38. Blue Baubles (6)
Once you have reached checkpoint 3, go up the steps and immediately bomb the wall to your right. You will find 6 Blue Baubles inside it. This room also counts as the ninth hidden room.
39. Blue Bauble
Go up the ledge to bomb the icicles up top and then grab this blue bauble tacked away in the corner.
Checkpoint 4 to 5
40. Blue Bauble
In the middle of the spike corridor, you will find a blue bauble to your left behind a red explosive barrel. Grab that bauble and to your right is a wall you can open with the gatekeeper song (332331) which will reveal hidden room ten.
Jumping up the steps in the hidden room will lead you to a corridor with series of frozen waterfalls. Pick the second last waterfall and go right whenever possible. If the right side is blocked, go forward/left and then go right again. The exact sequence is Left, Forward, Right, Right. Once you exit the maze, you will arrive at an open area with tons of bananas. Kill everyone of them and a new door should open containing hidden room eleventh and a NPC that will teach you the 133133 shatter serenade.
41. Blue Bauble
Exit the area and go back through the maze, proceed forward past the frozen waterfall and you will find a blue bauble to the right of the puzzle with the jumping goats.
Checkpoint 5 to 6
42. Blue Bauble
Right after the checkpoint is a blue bauble to the right.
43. Purple Bauble
On the left is a chest containing a purple bauble, you will need to backtrack all the way back to the area before checkpoint 3 to retrieve one of the keys.
44-48. Blue Baubles (5)
On the uphill climb, you will find 5 blue baubles along the way to pick up. One of them is a bit behind the infantile cloud you jump down to so don’t forget to grab that one.
Checkpoint 6 to 7
Make sure you activate the next three infantile clouds all the way to the spiked area so you have a way to backtrack later on. After you have activated all three clouds, suicide back to checkpoint.
49. Blue Bauble
Follow the infantile cloud for a bit and then drop down to the icy ramps below. You will spot a blue bauble shortly after you got off the ramps.
50-51. Blue Baubles (2)
The next two baubles are on the clouds on either side of a pillar.
Checkpoint 7 to 8
52. Purple Bauble
Hit the checkpoint and then backtrack to the platform with the frozen waterfall. Make sure to have your wooden whistle out. If you have trouble seeing the clouds, either zoom in your camera or turn your fullscreen gamma down to 0.5. Jump on the clouds on the right and take a right on the first split of the clouds and a left on the second split. This should land you to a section with a trio of 3 clouds before a closed wall where you will need to play the note 3 while leaping from the last cloud before the trio. On the first cloud of the trio, play 3 again before jumping to the second cloud. On the second cloud, play 23, and on the third cloud play 31. This should open the wall, allowing you to get a purple bauble and counts as hidden room twelfth.
Also bomb the walls to reveal hidden rooms thirteen, fourteen, and fifteen. Make sure you go into the hidden room on the right last as it is a death trap.
53. Blue Bauble
Respawn at the checkpoint and there is a blue bauble ahead with one of the polar bears. Behind the polar bear is a series of clouds that will take you to the next area with the spiked room and the push block puzzles.
Once you arrived at the spiked area, take a right and follow the wall. You will soon see a wall you can open with the 332331 song to reveal a hidden area that counts as hidden room sixteen. Take the teleporter and push open the wall to reveal a shortcut to this area from the checkpoint incase you die.
54-57. Blue Baubles (4)
Put the 3 push blocks in place and use them to get up on the ledges and pillars to grab the four blue baubles that are scattered around this area.
58. Purple Bauble
You will now need to backtrack all the way back to the area before checkpoint 3 and grab the last key you dropped off ages ago. When you backtrack through the area with the sloped hill, you will need to jump on the ledge on your right and go from there to get back to the spiked corridor. Take care to not fall off and die somewhere hard to reach as you cannot get another key if you lose it.
59. Yellow Bauble
This bauble is very tricky to get. Make sure you save at the next checkpoint first incase you do miss a jump and die. From the chest, you will want to do a series of jumps, some of them are corner jumps where you need to switch direction midair to reach the platform.
Once you are up top, you want to kill the 3 bananas so they don’t interfere with your jumps and then jump to the platform higher up. One of the jumps may require a dodge jump to cover the distance.
Once you are at the very top, drop down to reach the two bananas in the distance. To the right of the second banana is a passage that leads to the yellow bauble.
Checkpoint 8 to 9
60-63 Blue Baubles (4)
Around the four corners of the Yeti room are four blue baubles you need to pick up. On the left corner is also a wall you can open up with 332331 song to reveal your last hidden room.
Don’t forget to kill the Storm Wizard to get your achievement!
