Should we denote max possible achievement points?[edit]

I did the math just now, and until they add more achievements (via holiday, HoT, WvW season, or LW Season 3), and presuming I didn't miss any categories or the like, the current total possible is 29198; ignoring historical it'd be 24346. Should such be denoted and updated periodically? Konig 11:10, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Mastery point rewards for old achievements after Heart of Thorns launch[edit]

I have added total mastery points for each category to this table and updated the old categories with new achievements. However, there are some achievements I can't see and others that seem a bit strange, so I'd be glad if someone else cross-checked them.

What I mean by "strange" is that while some achievements I don't have show that they give a point, I haven't ever finished human story for levels 20 and 30 (Family Reunion and Storming the Castle), which are also the only story achievements that don't show me they give a mastery point. This means that it's either a very unusual coincidence, or that not all unobtained mastery points show up.

If it's the latter, it would probably be better if multiple people with a lot of achievements looked at their hero panels, clicked through the achievements and looked if I missed any, especially in the Hero, Dungeons, Twilight Arbor Aetherpath, Explorer, Basic/Rare Collections and Fashion categories; I'm 100% sure that all Season 2, Silverwastes, Dry Top, Jumping Puzzles and Bosses are done, and 99% sure that Slayer, Weapon Master, Community, Tradesman, Hall of Monuments and all Competitive categories don't have any.

As a side note (that I really should put somewhere else, but whatever), we'll need the green mastery point icon as well. User Noxx Sig.png 16:51, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Checked and those two human storyline ones give mastery points. Of the categories questioned I count: 25 in Hero (all completed), 0 in Dungeon (all but repeatable completed), 0 in Aetherpath (all completed), 2 explorer (only HoT and legendary ones not completed), 1 Basic Collection (but haven't completed any dungeon, mini, style guide, or new achievements - all but 1st whispers backpiece achieve are locked), 4 (only luminescent completed - Jormag and Uzolan locked), and 1 fashion (all completed). I'll update the hero one. Konig 05:40, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
Great, thanks! This probably means that the Central Tyria points are done, although we'll have to keep an eye on the collections; if anyone else comes here who has the following achievements done, please tell us if they also give mastery points:
  • Basic Collections – dungeon, mini, Style Guide, achievements new to HoT
  • Rare Collections – Acolyte of Dwayna, Exotic Hunter, Spirit Crafter, Dungeoneer, Treasure Hunter, Jormag Defense Guide, Toy Tonic Tippler, Uzolan's Mechanical Orchestra, Ascended Recycling

Missing some achievements?[edit]

The total amount I get if I ignore the lunar dailys, etc at the bottom of the page (I assume they count towards the 15k) is 32430. 3 players currently have more AP than that (top = 32664). I noticed the 2 retired fractals achievements aren't listed (10 AP, included in 32430). Not sure what else is missing? Or do lunar/halloween/etc not count towards the 15? 99.252.31.138 15:32, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

The festival dailies do count to the 15k (at least as of the cap and/or merge). I wouldn't be surprised if there are missing achievements. I noticed that Beta Weekend (achievements) is missing from the main list and included 5 AP. It's also possible some categories aren't up to date on this page since it is all manual (hmmm I'll ask Alex if it can be automateds somehow). I'll look through and compare to API using sites for the missing achievements when I get time. Currently on phone so hard to check. Konig 18:02, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
Added two missing categories and updated some numbers. Keep in mind you can't get 60 AP from the Super Adventure Box dailies until next year. Tyndel (talk) 21:33, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

List of all hidden achievements that aren't "Current Events"[edit]

Is there a list of all hidden achievements in the game, that aren't in the Current Events category? --118.101.167.156 16:32, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

As far as I can see, we have not marked the achievements based on if they're hidden or not, so we won't be able to generate a list of them atm. G R E E N E R 22:01, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Feedback 2017/05/04[edit]

Perhaps, there should be mention of the 15,000 Achievement Point cap (and how to determine if one has hit the cap) in this article. (I assume there is mention of said cap in the Dailies article [if not, there should be]). --Inculpatus cedo (talk) 08:35, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

There's a "15,000 total" note beside the daily category at the top of the table. Achievement#Categories. Should be sufficient imo. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:43, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Oh, I did not notice that. Still, it seems to indicate that the cap is on Daily APs only, which may be confusing. I only bring this up because it is an oft-posted question on the forums, and might be nice to link to. Whatever you feel is best. Thanks. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 18:55, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
