Special thanks to Rubik for locating some of the sky crystals.

  • Rauven

    This sucks so bad, already got 51 of the 52 and i dont know which one is missing, anet really need to put their shit together and add numbered lists to every achievements like these…

    • Don36669

      I’m in the same boat. I found 51 of them on my own, but after several rounds through the map I still haven’t found 52 and no way of knowing which of the 52 it is.

      • Rauven

        found it, it was the number 29

        • Don36669

          I thought, what the heck, let’s go see if 29 is the one I missed as well. And I’ll be damned, it was! 😀

          • Rauven

            It was hard to see, im sure i would never find it if it wasn’t for the guide.

            • Don36669

              When I came up on the spot, I thought I had already got it, but it turned out it was #30 I had, which is a little ahead of #29. I’m really glad I didn’t have to revisit all the sites again to find the one I was missing!

              • Jhoosier

                #29 for me as well. Man, that was rough.

              • Zyzzvays

                I got 29 without guide, saw the name while looking from somewhere else in that area, I have 51/52, and my remaining is not 29

        • Nebz

          Dude that was a nice call that was the same last one for me too.

        • rprig

          Can confirm. 29 was also the last one I was missing.

        • Manuel

          Same for me! I was sitting at 51/52 with no clue which one I was missing. Turns out it was this one because it’s way harder to see than all the others. 😛

        • KJ

          I haven’t yet started this achievement, but I sure as hell will get #29 out of the way at the beginning based on everyone’s unanimous experience.

        • SomethingSomethingDarkside

          Oh thank god. Knew someone in the comments would come with the save. Just saved me from having to go through this entire list one by one.

        • Adam Zsoldos

          Yep, I was also missing 29. 30 is well-hidden too.

          • methodm

            Thank you so much. I was looking for 29 and 30.

        • Ha Ha Ha

          Holy heck thank you I never would have found that and reeeeally didn’t want to go through the guide one by one.

    • Amy

      I was missing #8. It’s a bit out of the way. Just posting this in case it helps someone.

  • Luna

    This is a great guide! Thanks so much, Dulfy!

  • John

    Can you get #52 without the griffon?

    • Kalcheus

      You can rent a griffon at the festival

      • p w

        where?

        • Kalcheus

          I apologize, I’m not sure where the individual mount vendors are located. The griffon one may be up by the airship?

          • p w

            found it, just slightly north of the skydocks waypoint

    • ancel

      yes. you can glide in from the other side . use the thermal and glide to the left. hop up the ledge , glide down around the bend, you’ll be gliding in from the opposite side.

  • Rathje

    Just curious, are there any achievements you can get here WITHOUT any mounts?

    • Ricky Grimes

      If they put a mount rental vendor in the map, probably not. It’s a great advertisement for the expansion.

    • Rathje

      Well, to reply to my own question… So far, I’ve managed to participate in the kill-the-fire-effigy-with-water-balloons event. Also, I’ve collected about 16 sky crystals just using Zephyrite Crystals with no mount. Another guy on my map claimed he’s snagged 24 of those with no mount. I’ve managed to collect about 3 posters of that Quaggan guy.

      Interesting enough so far.

      • Qnrad

        Back when this festival was first time we need to get sky crystal with only 3 elements, and ppl did it somehow

      • kazerniel

        I got all master crystals and so far 51 crystals and 10 fliers with no mount (ok I have a raptor unlocked, but I don’t think I used it at all for this). A glider, some updrafts and the blue aspect jump crystals do the trick.

      • Jalen Dmello

        I did the sky crystal achievement back in the day without mounts. Its doable but unlike mounts you don’t have unlimited charges. 10 charges and you have to try again from the beginning. In this patch everything is doable without mounts its just that its less convenient as you got to rent and use the three elements

    • Ayakaru

      to answer that, this is the exact same collection as 3-4 years ago when we didn’t have any gliders or mounts, so yea, while they did ADD things for mounts, the old things are very non-mount friendly. Besides, you can rent mounts from trainers

  • Batchie

    Wish Anet added a checklist for this.

    • Aymiia Darell

      Yeah this is the problem I’m having! I found 48 on my own, and was going to use this to finish, and it’s like…uhhh… 🙁

      • Winterbay

        I got to 51. It’s going to be a mess trying to figure out which the last one is…

        • kazerniel

          Same here, I hate my life D:

  • ancel

    Stuck at 50/52 for the longest time. I was missing #8 and #39 fwiw

  • kazerniel

    Ok how tf to get to #29 without mounts? :/

    Edit: ok got it, go to the sky crystal in the nearby patch of ferns, and approach from that direction with aspect jumps

  • MastaGambit

    #29 is actually some really cheap BS. The idea is that you’re actually supposed to be able to stand on those “hanging tarps” that are connected to the ledge the crystal is on, and therefore, able to use wind jump to get up onto them and walk over to the crystal. The problem with this comes from bad game design: *This is the only area in the entire zone where those tarps have standable collision; every other instance of these tarps in Labyrinthine Cliffs has no collisions/you can pass right through them*. This is a problem for the simple reason that it conditions the player into thinking that they can’t use other instances of this object they see around them for platforming purposes. There’s also no graphical differences on these specific tarps that could’ve indicated that they have collision/can be stood on.

    I wouldn’t feel so cheated by this… if it wasn’t for the fact that this achievement is *required for the Meta Achievement*. I’m starting to wonder if ANet really is unironically making scavenger hunt achievements with Dulfy/etc. in mind nowadays… (to clarify, I don’t have a problem with well-hidden collectibles; my problem is with cheap misdirectional BS)

    • kazerniel

      It’s annoying me that on the whole map it’s impossible to tell which tarps you can stand on and which you can’t until you try it. There’s zero visual difference between them. (Example: You can stand on the diagonal tarps of the semicircle of canvas roofs next to Sky Docks WP. Jump off and you can glide through the huge tarp affixed to the rock next to it.)
