GW2 The Long Way Around achievement guide with detailed description and video walkthrough. The Long Way Around is an explorer achievement introduced with the Halloween patch for an activity in Straits of Devastation. The activity itself is largely risk free as there are no mobs around but there is a timer on it and it can be quite annoying/frustrating (achievement originally discovered by Taeril)
Here is a guide for the new GW2 explorer achievements introduced with the Halloween Patch. This is a work in progress and will be updated as more as discovered. A lot of these achievement locations are swarming with mobs with some are mini dungeons or mini-dungeon/jumping puzzle hybrids. Bringing a friend is highly recommended for this achievement hunting to avoid frustration!
