GW2 Chicken Scramble achievement guide

GW2 Chicken Scramble achievement guide with detailed walkthrough. Chicken Scramble is an explorer achievement introduced with the Halloween patch for an achievement obtainable in Bloodtide Coast, Queensdale, Gendarran Fields and Kessex Hills. This one involves opening chests in these zones to spawn Skritt burglars that will transform you into a chicken for this achievement. Like the other skritt burgler involving achievements, there isn’t one spot for the chest to spawn. Instead, there are a number of possible locations.


  • 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

GW2 Jumping puzzles

GW2 Demongrub Pits Queensdale jumping puzzle guide

GW2 Demongrub Pits jumping puzzle guide with detailed explanations and video walkthrough. Demongrub Pits is a jumping puzzle on the SE corner of Queensdale. The puzzle itself is relatively easy and serves as a good introduction for future jumping puzzles. Players do have to beware that the last room with the chest has quite a few mobs and can be fairly challenging to fight them all.


Puzzle start

The puzzle starts at SE corner of Queensdale, in a place appropriately called Demongrub Pits. There are a few patrolling centaurs around the entrance so watch out if you don’t want to fight.  The waypoints are not too close to the entrance so you do need to run a bit.


Puzzle walkthrough


Once you get inside the cave, immediately take a right and make this jump here. It is quite a long distance so if you don’t make the jump just run back up.


This will put you into a room with a couple of stone blocks you need to jump through.


Doing these jumps will put you in a room with some shadow skelks, which you can skip by running to the right side of the room and look for a passage to the next room.


This will lead you into a passage that ultimately leads to the final room with the chest. There are quite a few oozes here. You can either fight them all (quite a few veterans) or run left and jump on the platforms. Beware that the oozes do immobilze you occasionally which can get a bit annoying.


Before doing the jumps, it is recommended that you kill the oozes following you to get out of combat (unless you have swiftness) as otherwise you might miss the jump.Once you at at the very top, you can drop down to the chest and avoid most of the oozes in the room.
