Daily

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
(Redirected from Daily achievement)
Jump to: navigation, search

Daily is an achievement category earned by doing a set of simple tasks. Every day a new set of twelve achievements is generated from the possible tasks list; additionally, one or more special daily meta-achievements will be generated depending on the active Living Story. Completing five of these tracks rewards the character with a daily reward chest popping up in the lower right corner. Each achievement completed in addition to that will reward 5% experience towards the next level and 1 achievement point.

[edit] Achievements

There are a total of ten daily tasks available each day composed of various objectives. You must complete at least five daily achievements to complete the daily and receive the bonus reward. To keep track of the dailies you want to complete, you can use the watch list functionality of the achievements panel. Each daily achievement is worth 1 Arenanet Points.png, regardless of how many you end up completing, so you can earn up to 10 Arenanet Points.png a day doing daily achievements only.

The ten daily achievements are split into two PvP achievements, two WvW achievements, and six general PvE achievements. There are four fixed achievements each day: Daily Events, Daily Recycler, Daily Mists Invasion Defender (WvW), and Daily Matches Played (PvP). The other ones rotate on a currently unknown cycle.

[edit] List of possible daily achievements

Daily achievement Objective Description Notes
Event based daily achievements
Daily Events 0/5 Events Complete events. Events in low level zones such as Queensdale and Plains of Ashford are shorter than high level zones as well as easier to complete. Events in World versus World will also count towards the achievement, giving players an alternative to hunting events in zones.
Ascalonian Event Completer 0/4 Events in Ascalon Complete events in the following Ascalonian maps: Plains of Ashford, Diessa Plateau, Fields of Ruin, Blazeridge Steppes, and Fireheart Rise. Also includes Ascalonian Catacombs & Citadel of Flame
Shiverpeaks Event Completer 0/4 Events in the Shiverpeaks Complete events in the following Shiverpeak Mountains maps: Wayfarer Foothills, Snowden Drifts, Lornar's Pass, Dredgehaunt Cliffs, Timberline Falls, and Frostgorge Sound. Also includes Sorrow's Embrace & Honor of the Waves

Event Mentor 0/5 Sidekicked Events Completed Complete events while adjusted below your actual character level. Explore areas with events below your level. As with Daily Events achievement, low level zones are ideal due to being short and easy to complete. This is not possible with events in Cursed Shore, Southsun Cove, or in World versus World as these are level 80 zones.
Group Event Completer 0/2 Group Events Complete group events. Group events are events designed to be completed in a group. Most world bosses at the end of meta events will be group events. Events with bonus chests are popular, so you won't have to find help. This is a list of group events.
Here Be Dragons! 0/1 Participate in the Tequatl encounter 1 times.
Boss Week; Here Be Dragons! 0/1 Participate at least once in the Tequatl encounter, or any other world boss encounter. Killing Champion Drakin Cinderspire does not count toward this achievement.

Story Dungeon Completer 0/1 Story Dungeons Complete a dungeon on story mode difficulty.
Daily Fractal Runner 0/1 Fractals Completed Complete a fractal dungeon. Fractals are completed in sets, so check with your teammates if you only want to complete a single fractal for the daily achievement.

Daily Kill Variety 0/13 Types of Enemies Different families or groups of enemies killed. See Daily Kill Variety for details.
Daily Aquatic Slayer 0/25 Underwater Kills You vanquished foes beneath the waves. Players usually have to go out of their way to kill underwater creatures and these foes are spread out in a much wider radius. Focus on events that occur underwater. One good aquatic area is Loch Jezt just outside of Rata Sum in Metrica Province.
Daily Veteran Slayer 0/5 Veterans Defeated You brought down veteran foes when you found them. The Fractals of the Mists contain many veteran foes. Many places in the open world have Veteran Oakhearts, such as The Heartwoods in Queensdale and Taigan Groves in Wayfarer Foothills. Also, in the southwest corner of the Plains of Ashford within a short gorge that leads to the Langmar Estate, there are 5 veterans. Veteran Dolyaks can be found in Wayfarer Foothills at Dolyak Pass. About 15 veterans can be found at the beginning of Tears of Itlaocol in Caledon Forest.
Ascalonian Veteran Killer 0/3 Veterans Slain in Ascalon Kill veteran or elite foes in the following Ascalonian maps: Plains of Ashford, Diessa Plateau, Fields of Ruin, Blazeridge Steppes, Iron Marches, and Fireheart Rise. Also includes Ascalonian Catacombs & Citadel of Flame
Shiverpeaks Veteran Killer 0/3 Veterans Slain in the Shiverpeaks Kill veteran or elite foes in the following Shiverpeak Mountains maps: Wayfarer Foothills, Snowden Drifts, Lornar's Pass, Dredgehaunt Cliffs, Timberline Falls, and Frostgorge Sound. Also includes Sorrow's Embrace & Honor of the Waves
Maguuman Veteran Killer 0/3 Veterans Slain in the Maguuma Jungle Kill veteran or elite foes in the following Maguuma Jungle maps: Caledon Forest, Metrica Province, Brisban Wildlands, Sparkfly Fen, and Mount Maelstrom. Also includes Twilight Arbor & Crucible of Eternity
Daily Champion Slayer 0/1 Champions Defeated You brought down champion foes when you found them. Many group events have champion monsters. All dungeons have champions.
Ambient Killer 0/30 Ambient Creatures Kill 30 ambient creatures. Ambient creatures are NPCs with white names and can be found throughout Tyria. Many areas have a concentration of these creatures, such as Godslost Swamp, Grand Barrier Isle, Hangrammr Climb, Toxal Bog, and the Swampland Fractal.
Combat based daily achievements
Condition Applier 0/50 Conditions Applied Apply bleeding, blinding, burning, chilling, confusion, crippling, fear, immobilization, poison, vulnerability, or weakness to your foes. Players will naturally apply conditions during combat. Using an area of effect field on a group of enemies can quickly complete this achievement.
Condition Remover 0/20 Conditions Removed Remove bleeding, blinding, burning, chilling, confusion, crippling, fear, immobilization, poison, vulnerability, or weakness from yourself or your allies. Seek out foes which apply multiple conditions at once such as Bandit Cutpurses or Wurms, and bring skills which remove multiple conditions in a single use, such as Ether Renewal or Healing Spring. Each stack of a condition that is removed counts towards the achievement; for example, if a Bear applied a stack of 4 bleeds to you, and you used Mending to remove the bleeding, it would count as 4 removals. Alternately, necromancers can apply conditions to themselves using certain skills, allowing you to complete the achievement without ever leaving town.
Daily Dodger 0/15 Attacks Dodged You successfully evaded incoming attacks. Along with the dodge mechanic, any skill that evades will count. An easy method is to grab three or more enemies, preferably low level so you don't die, and dodge through them to trigger evasion multiple times. If players are having timing issues, selecting enemies with long animating attacks such as bears or ettins can be helpful. Dredge oscillators use a slow moving wave attack when the player is at a distance which, if dodged, counts as three to four evasions. The Great Jungle Wurm melee attack can complete the whole achievement in one go.
Skill Interrupter 0/15 Skills Interrupted Successfully interrupt a foe's skills by dazing, causing fear, knocking down, launching, pulling, pushing, or stunning your foe. Foes which channel skills, such as crabs while blocking, or with long wind-up times, like bears or ettins, are ideal for completing this achievement. Interrupts from Fear do not count for this achievement, despite the in-game tooltip saying it's possible.
Daily Reviver 0/10 Allies Revived Revive a downed or defeated NPC or player. At some places in the world there are many allies to revive, such as The Bloodfields in Gendarran Fields and Thaumanova Reactor in Metrica Province.
Activity based daily achievements
Daily Activity Participation 0/1 Activities Completed Join in on an activity. Speak with

Kouris or Edinna Linhoft to gain access:

Some holiday based activities also grant credit to this achievement.

Costume Brawl Champion 0/1 Costume Brawls Won Win 1 costume brawls. See Costume Brawl for information on the activity. If you don't currently have gem-free, independent access to brawl skills, please check Ghostly Owl Feather which has 2 costume brawl skills for 147 karma.
Tradesman based daily achievements
Daily Gatherer 0/20 Gatherings Gathering raw materials. Certain areas can have a concentration of nodes due to how nodes are distributed across the map. Players can also take advantage of node farms.
Daily Crafter 0/10 Items You did some crafting in one of the disciplines. This includes refining materials, such turning ore into bars, which is often the cheapest method. The same recipe can be crafted multiple times. Recipes that give quantities greater than one, such as potions, count as one crafting.
Recycler 0/10 Items Salvaged Break down items using a salvage kit. Salvaging items you find during completion of other dailies can help towards this. Alternately, simply buy cheap equipment or salvage items from the Trading Post to salvage. Salvaging items with non-PvP Salvage Kits in Heart of the Mists does not count.
Mystic Forgesmith 0/5 Uses of the Mystic Forge Use the Mystic Forge to create new items. Buy cheap basic armor and weapons from the Trading Post, or low-level karma equipment from Renown Hearts and combine them in the Mystic Forge. Stacks of upgrade items, such as gems, runes, or sigils can also quickly complete this. If you have at least one experience, karma, and magic find booster, you can buy a leather bag to create a Booster Multipack then open it to receive the boosters back, thus only consuming the leather bag for each use.
Character progression based daily achievements
Personal Story Completer 0/1 Story Steps Completed Help your allies complete a personal story step, or complete one yourself. If you have an open character slot, you can create a new character and complete the tutorial to easily finish this achievement. If all of your characters have completed theirs and you have no slots available, you will have to find someone to party with.
Leveler 0/1 Levels Gained Gain a level. Also applies to level 80 characters. Below level 20, characters tend to gain levels very quickly. New characters gain a level upon completing the tutorial. Level 80 characters are still able to complete this achievement by gaining enough experience to gain a skill point. Gaining a level in WvW also counts.
Skill Point Accumulator 0/3 Skill Points Acquire skill points from skill challenges or leveling a character that is already level 80. Earn skill points by completing skill challenges, using a Scroll of Knowledge, or by filling the experience bar of a character of level 5 or higher.
World versus World based daily achievements
Daily Mists Invasion Defender 0/10 Enemy Invaders Killed Defeat enemy invaders in the Mists.
Daily Mists Caravan Disruptor 0/5 Supply Caravans Destroyed Kill 5 enemy supply caravan in the Mists. Defeat Pack Dolyaks. This is easier on Borderlands maps.

Miscellaneous daily achievements
Daily Feast 0/5 Food Eaten You have a little something to eat. Food can be bought for a very low price from the Trading Post. Note, however, that most food items will not appear if you set the filters to "food". Use the "consumable" filter with no subcategory. Another cheap alternative is to purchase Rice in Bulk for 49 karma from any Master Chef vendor. This will give you 25 Rice Balls which can be consumed directly to quickly complete the requirement. Some foods do not count, such as Roasted Meaty Sandwich.
Karma Spender 0/750 Karma Spent Purchase items using karma. Purchasing crafting materials, recipes, Lost Orrian Jewelry Box or Obsidian Shard is a quick way to spend karma without wasting it on items you may not need. You can buy Rice in Bulk for future Daily Feast days.
Daily Laurel Vendor 0/1 Laurel Vendors Visited You sought out a laurel vendor in any of the major cities. Simply talk to a laurel vendor.
Daily Puzzle Jumper 0/1 Jumping Puzzles Completed Complete a jumping puzzle. Urmaug's Secret in Lion's Arch is simple and accessible, making it a popular choice for players. It is possible to park a character at the end of a jumping puzzle; logging back into this character whenever the achievement comes up will complete it instantly.
Daily Puzzle Discoverer 0/3 Jumping Puzzles Found You have a knack for discovering jumping puzzles. Simply get to the entrance of three jumping puzzles. No need to attempt to complete them. Under New Management is quick and easy to get to. Three puzzles in Diessa Plateau or three in the SE corner of Caledon Forest are a quick run also.

[edit] Notes

  • Drop rate research can be found here.
  • Progress is reset each day at midnight, 00:00 UTC.
  • Like all other achievements, daily achievements are tied to the account, which means that one character can do most of the work, but another can complete the achievement for the reward.
  • The reward chest is displayed as a pop-up in the lower-right corner of the screen; it does not need to be opened immediately and will persist through logout. However, you can only claim it on the character who earned the reward.

[edit] History

  • The dailies have undergone many changes to how they work since the release of the game. The full history is documented on the research subpage.
  • Daily Feast originally required 25 food eaten. This was reduced to just 5 with the Daily changes included in the April 2014 Feature Pack.
