GW2 Branded Mine Fields of Ruin Jumping puzzle guide

Guild Wars 2 Branded Mine jumping puzzle in Fields of Ruin with detailed explanation and video walkthrough. Branded Mine is a puzzle located on the NW corner of Fields of Ruin (just north of  Helliot Mine Waypoint). While most of the jumps are not too difficult, the screenshakes and the falling boulders can make you miss jumps. Failing a jump will usually result in death due to long fall distance and forces you to run back.


Puzzle start


Once you get to the location indicated by the arrow, there should be a small hole that will lead you to the cavern that hosts the puzzle.


Puzzle Walkthrough


Once you are inside the cavern, take a right and climb up the beams. From here on, you just have to jump between beams. It make take a bit of practice to not over or underjump between beams.


The part you may get stuck on is here. The next jump after is also kinda tricky.


You will then need to make a big leap of faith (use swiftness here if you need) and to the platform with ravens. Ahead is just a couple more beams before you finish the puzzle but can be a tricky (I failed here a couple times and had to start over).

You will want to jump on the inner side of the beams so that you have the least distance to jump and there is a beam underneath incase you don’t make the jump.
