22. In a corner


23. Walk a bit south to find this coin


24. Behind some bamboo structure on the ground level

26. Use air crystal to jump up the rock above Cragrock Palace


27. In the corner is another Lost Coin


28. On the left of the tunnel to the Ley Line Lab


29. To get this crystal, you have to wait until the event to kill the Inquest Krewe leader. This will build a light bridge that take you to the other side from coin 25.

  • Inquest Leader event occurs every hour at 5, 20 and 35 minutes past the hr.


30. This one is a bit tricky to get. From the vista nearby, use the air crystal to ping pong between the two cliffs until you get to the very top and obtain a purple crystal. Use the purple crystal to leap over the gap to get this final coin

27 is missing for me nothing there i am stuck on 29 of 30 now. Have tried guesting other servers and re logging to no effect.

Hey guys, something new I just added is the ability to click on a number on the map to jump to a specific location on the guide. Let me know if that is causing any issues and if you like/dislike it.

For 30, you don’t need to ping-pong between the two rock towers (although that was a feat of platforming on your part). From the second wind crystal, go around the ledge until you can jump up. You’ll find another wind crystal guarded by a basilisk. From there you can jump to the lightning tether crystal.

#14 is a bit confusing, it’s actually the 2nd lvl top between the 2 tower. The lower lvl looks similar structure and landscape.

Dulfy, it would be awesome if we have the ability to jump back to the map from the linked coins position. Would make things that much smoother and improve the experience a great deal. Thanks

Ok this doesn’t make sense. While I had found 29 coins, I couldn’t find the last one despite following the map guide, I decide to redo it by step by step on the video (watched where it is located on the video and pause it while I go there myself and unpause it once I’m there). Even doing that I am still missing the last one despite I clearly remember visiting all coins location including that inquest event with the platforms. What the hell?

You can get the coin by glitching inside the rock, and getting it from the inside – jumping and spamming F key will get it.

I spotted one way up higher on a ledge right above #20. How to get to that one? Its not listed here. I finally saw someone up there and they had me go to Repair Station Waypoint then across the sand to find a Zeph jump telaport thing that took me right there. Here is pics.

Did they add more in since this launched? I found one right near #1 up on a wood deck. Use the jump power up to the right of the door, then jump to the vine on the left of the door then up, up.

I just spent like 3 hours running, searching for the final one. Checked all the locations twice, and finally on the third run found it. It was #2.

With HoT released, the achievements page now shows which coins you’re missing. Problem is… the numbers in the achievements panel don’t match your numbers. Any plans to update this (and the other similar achievement guides) to reflect anet’s numbering scheme?

Issue is I have collected them already so they don’t show up anymore and redoing the whole thing on another account is extremely tedious and not soemthing I have the time for right now.
