Daily is an achievement category that rewards players for performing specific daily tasks. Every day, a new set of twelve achievements is generated: four PvE-related achievements, four PvP-related achievements, and four WvW-related achievements. Each achievement rewards a specific bonus chest that contains rewards related to the activity that was necessary to complete the achievement. In addition, a meta achievement "Daily Completionist" rewards completing at least three of the twelve available achievements with 10 .
The daily achievements are advertised in a special window after receiving the daily login rewards. In addition, the upper-right corner of the interface will show achievements from the Daily category as long as the meta achievement has not been completed, unless other achievements are added to the achievement watch list.
The achievements that are available each day are taken from a whole set of available achievements, and appear on a fixed monthly cycle. For an overview and preview of which achievements appear within the next 30 days, see Daily/Table.
