  • Minitopo

    Super Adventure box is back!!!!!!!!! hell yeaaahhh BABY!!!

  • Neka

    No more worlds….????? MEEEEEEH…

    • Voreo Sabrae

      To be fair, SAB was completely broken from the updates that came after it was around. They had to fix that first.

      • burntorangenavyblue

        What was wrong with before? Can’t remember

        • concot

          blah blah hot blah blah physics blah blah

        • Ananeos

          Adding flying to Gw2 broke everything in SAB since they had to redo the game engine for HoT.

  • hugabuga

    Is there a skin vendor?

  • Meka Silverstone

    A-MAZE-ing hiding spot. Entrance. Watch out for the spikes!

    • nicoper

      Thanks a huge bunch for sharing the location!

  • Dharkon

    Drain the improper water, right after the 3rd checkpoint in W1-z2

  • Dharkon

    Shopception, go into the secret shop in W1-z3 after the 3rd checkpoint. Burn the rug, bomb the floor, then bomb the waterfall in the next room.

    • Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  • nicoper

    “Just when you thought it was over!” is in the end of W1-Z2, throw a bomb at the tree stump with the cage on. (see image)

    • Awesome thanks, we had trouble finding this one

  • nicoper

    Anyone knows what’s up with “Betty Bauble” who seems to be in the end of every zone? Does she award something upon collection of all baubles in the zone?

    • Ignoranceisbliss

      She lets you know if you’ve collected them all. The only way to get the achievement is to finish the zone. If you finish it but were missing one baubel you have no way of knowing (before now) and would have to start over.

      • nicoper

        Ah, that’s a nice addition.

  • Valentine

    Any clues on how to obtain the orange weapon skins, the Kaiser Snake ones?

    • nicoper

      “The skins for these can be acquired from the repeatable Course Load
      achievement which requires you to complete the Course Work daily
      achievement for 8 days.”
      Source: http://dulfy.net/2016/03/31/gw2-upcoming-items-from-march-31-patch-2/

      • Valentine

        Hmmm, I see. They’re also obtained for completing an entire set of sab weapons from 1 colour. Too bad the collections are bugged a bit, because already applied sab skins don’t get recognized by the collection :<

  • GentleOsprey

    “Hot Hot Hot!” Is in W1-Z1 Tribulation Mode. It’s hiding in the back left corner of the final area in the lava under the map.

  • Daniel Bishop

    “Under the pyramid of pain.” W2Z3 beneath the yeti boss. You can get back up to the boss afterwards by jumping on the platforms around the outside of the pillar (far left side of second screenshot).

  • nicoper

    There’s a fancy coin shop thingy at the (I think) second last checkpoint of W2 Z2 (non-infantile mode), it requires one to utilize the jump gained from grabbing the checkpoint to jump through the floor in at the second floor of the building.
    Unfortunately I don’t have a screenshot, as I messed up the first time (I hadn’t realized the boost was needed, or rather, I didn’t see the shop until afterwards), then I tried again, but followed the path of the infantile clouds and ended up at the wrong place, unable to make it back there.
    I assume this is the one called “All together now!”, as it is near the end of W2 Z2, and “A fluffy trapdoor” should probably be earlier on in the level.

  • Ghul

    Can you make a guide for the SAB dailies Locksmithing 102 and Mineral Resource Extraction 103?

  • Nicole Yaciw

    There are buried treasure chests to be found. I would love a guide on those. I’ve found two so far. Also found a cave to access a small pile of baubles (12 I think?) with the bomb tool. All of my findings are in the first world, within the first two areas.

  • EagleBach

    Is this real or just a cruel April’s Fool joke?

    • Erick Rodriguez

      It’s real

  • Takahami

    hey dulfy. you should put your list of digging locations into this guide too. its needed for certain dailies.

  • Phobia256

    Isn’t a bit ironic that some people seem to care more for a game inside a game rather than the actual game itself? O.o

    • nicoper

      No, most people have been waiting about 2,5 years for the return of SAB.

      • Phobia256

        That doesn’t change the fact that it is only a minor part of the game that has little to do with the main game.

  • J Mad

    Could you do a easy fast guide as to What items/upgrades are in what shops? Might help some players.

  • festy

    Im trying to do the achievements in World 2, Zone 2…but the clouds in infantile mode seem to be different from the video…has there been changes since it was made?

    • Yes they moved around the infantile clouds in W2Z2 for the 2016 release. Made things more harder than before as there are basically no infantile cloud anymore past the new cloud shortcut.

      • festy

        So Ill have to find a guide going around the regular way, any plans on making one yourself? If so ill wait…rather have quality. Thanks so much for the quick reply and for all of your guides.

        • Tom Stone

          Moreover there are additional assassins and baubles in this world, which makes the guide uncomplete for now ๐Ÿ™

  • ema

    What is the reward for tribulation mode now? same as before?

    • Yeah you get a token which you can use to make the king toad/storm wizard weapons.

      • cardosy

        Also a chance to get the orange (Kaiser) weapons from boss chests!

      • Sandra Ferreira

        Are the tokens 1 per day like last year?

        • Nope it is no longer restricted. You can get as many tokens as you can farm.

          • Sandra Ferreira

            Yeyyyy ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you Dulfy!! ^^

  • Scarlett

    I cant even get into world 2. Try try try again…. no prompt appears. World 1 cleared (supposed to be able to play in any order so that shouldnt matter). World 1 cleared a second time just in case… /cry

    • mako

      are you sure when you finished World 1 you stayed in the map till the bonus appeared (the cart hitting thing), then went back to the hub?

  • RKC

    Since the worlds achievement are the same as the old one, I be sticking to daily achievement in world 1 only (world 2 is just so annoying and long!!!).

    • Man

      W2Z1 has a lot of dig bubbles and WzZ2 has the short cut which make it the shortest zone. So only 1 zone you really want to skip.

    • Man

      2 shortcut are added to W2Z3 also, so W2 is even shorter then W1 now if you just want to kill the bosses.
      Before the shortcut in W2Z2 has +50+20dig and +20 chest.
      Before the shortcut in W2Z3 has +50+50dig and + 20 chest.

      • RKC

        Where are they in zone 3?

  • Chalupar

    I hate this event… :/

  • Moku

    So how do you get to World 3? I’ve finished World 2 on Normal and the third house has no promp. It clearly exists since you write about it in Overall Acheivement Guide, as well as having seen a video, so what gives? How do I get to that Genie?

    • Rozalka

      It doesn’t exist ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Moku
        • TSB

          A one-room are that was “part” of an unfinished World 3 Zone 1 could be accessed during the second release of SAB, and ONLY that release. You would take with a Genie who would send you to defeat the “true enemy”. It was all a setup for a Konami code joke. It’s not accessible this release.

          • Moku

            Sure would be nice if this site or the wiki mentioned they were timed, or in the case of this guide, just deleted.

            But I maintain that there IS a World 3, even if it’s not accessable now and was just a preview. There are textures, a known theme (cave), a name (Sparkling Pools), and we even know what the boss is now (Kaiser Snake).

    • Xodan

      There is no World 3, only World 1 Zone 3 and World 2 Zone 3. The Houses go to the different worlds not the zones.

      W1Z3 will be in the first house, after completing the first two zones, and W2Z3 will be in the second house.

  • Amber Talamasca

    Did anyone else loose progress from the last time? I had everything unlocked, but now i was lacking the bomb, slingshot, and some other stuff. And I wasn’t the only one, my friend also lost some items (but not the same ones, i had still had the shovel for example, she didnt. She had the bombs, I didnt.

    I’ve googled it a bit, but couldn’t find any other references. Anyone else experienced this or knows why?

    • Irkalla

      Did you do it on the same character as last time? All the progress/items are character bound.

      • Amber Talamasca

        Doh.. so obvious in hind sight. Thanks! That was exactly it.
