Once you fall through the hole, you will need to swim through a water tunnel and you will emerge at the start of the puzzle. The goal of this puzzle is to jump through the mushroom/leaf pads and wood logs handing in the air. If you come across an intersection, always go left.

This is the first interaction you will encounter.

The second interaction is near the end of the puzzle, you will want to jump on the mushroom to the left rather than the log on the right.

GW2 Dark Reverie Caledon Forest jumping puzzle guide

Guild Wars 2 Dark Reverie jumping puzzle guide with detailed explanations and video walkthrough. Dark Reverie is a jumping puzzle in Caledon Forest  located right behind Morgan’s Leap. Players wishing to attempt this jumping puzzle will need to successfully attempt Morgan’s Leap first. This puzzle has one difficult jump but the rest are fairly straightforward. Missing a jump, however, will most likely cause death due to fall damage. If there are no players below to rez you, you will need to redo Morgan’s Leap to start the puzzle again.

Puzzle start

After you successfully finish Morgan’s Leap, you will need to run ahead past the friendly Jungle Spider Hatchlings and jump over a small gap.There will be a couple mobs (Nightmare Court Archers, Spiders) to fight through before you can jump down.

Once you get to the bottom, you will need to be super careful as there are quite a few veteran and small groups of mobs roaming. You will need to head straight across to the other side, where you will see a bunch of mushroom steps that go up.

Make sure you kill any Nightmare Mortars and Bursting Bramble you encounter along the way. Bursting Bramble, especially, will put Confusion and other nasty DoTs on you so becareful when killing them that you don’t kill yourself. Not killing them will likely put you in combat, which will most likely cause you to miss jumps.

Your first semi difficult jump is here, you will need to kill the Bursting Bramble first and jump on top the branch the Bramble was occupying. Arrows illustrate one path you can take here.

Another not so straightforward jump is here, which is close to the most difficult jump in the entire puzzle.

Once you get to this jump, your first instinct is probably to jump directly on top of the leaf (dotted line). A lot of people don’t make this jump and fall to their death (on populated servers, you can see a pile of dead bodies below, waiting to be rezzed). What I found easier is to actually jump on the branch instead and then jump up on the leaf.

Past this jump, the end is not far off and there are no more difficult jumps.

GW2 Morgan’s Leap Caledon Forest jumping puzzle guide

Guild Wars 2 Morgan’s Leap jumping puzzle guide in Caledon Forest with detailed explanations and video walkthrough. Morgan’s Leap is a jumping puzzle in the SE corner of Caledon Forest. The puzzle itself isn’t too hard but can be a bit frustrating for those new to jumping puzzles. If you are looking to get the Dark Reverie achievement, be sure to not take off after you get the achievement for Morgan’s Leap as the puzzle is right after. Check out this guide for Dark Reverie jumping puzzle.

jumppuzzleguide

Puzzle Start

The jumping puzzle starts at the tree in Morgan’s Spiral, which is in the SE corner of the zone. If the tree is not active (leaves not climbable), you will need to wait for for an event to occur to activate it (you can try brute jumping it).

Most of the puzzle is actually quite linear and straight forward once you get up the tree. The only portion of the puzzle worth mentioning is here where you need to jump on the rock and then onto the tree branch above it. Beware of narrow branches and make sure your double tap to evade is turned off in the options
