GW2 Halloween

GW2 Jackaloping Along achievement guide

GW2 Jackaloping Along achievement guide with detailed walkthrough. GW2 Jackaloping Along is an explorer achievement added with the Halloween patch. This achievement can be obtained in Frostgorge Sound, Snowden Drifts, Wayfarer Foothills and Lornar’s Pass . Note that this achievement involves a treasure chest that spawns a skritt burglar. The chest disappears if someone else has recently looted it and moves to another location.


  • Press ctrl down while looking for these chests as it will highlight their names.
  • Best to do this with a friend so you can find the skritt burgler faster and reduce the waypoint costs
  • Do not use any pets/clones if possible as the skritt may transform your pet instead. This is especially a concern for rangers.
  • Focus on low damage attacks so you don’t kill the skritt burgler too quickly.
