Achievement

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki

The achievements interface in the game.

Achievements are a system in the game to help gauge what a player has accomplished in the game. They are awarded for completing various tasks spanning all game types; PvE, PvP, and WvW. Completing an achievement may reward the player with achievement pointsAchievement points, a mastery point, an item, or a title. Players also get achievement rewards for obtaining enough achievement points for the tier. These rewards include coin, laurels, gems, weapon and armor skins, account bonuses, achievement chests. Achievements are organized into achievement categories, which are organized into logical groups to aid in navigation.

Progression, achievement points, and titles are shared across all characters on an account. Most items rewarded from achievements are account bound. Upon obtaining an achievement, the player will be notified with a popup in the lower right corner of the UI stating the name, tier, description, and achievement points gained. Many achievements have multiple tiers and a notification will appear upon completing each tier. For these tiered achievements, the menu shows progression along the current tier, not the overall progression.

While most achievements are standard and require completing certain tasks in the game, others have special purposes or requirements. Meta achievements act as an umbrella achievement for the achievement category, requiring other achievements in the category to be completed. Other achievements serve as an umbrella achievement for certain achievements in the category, such as Learn to Kite. A few achievements are repeatable, granting achievement points every time the progress bar is filled at which time its progress is reset. Some achievements have prerequisites and will not progress until all tiers of the prerequisite achievement have been completed.

In the game, players in the same guild or party may view each other's total achievement points, but with the exception of wearing a title, only the player can see their individual achievements obtained. Outside the game, players may compare their accumulated achievement points with others on the leaderboards here: NA / EU.

Achievement rewards[edit]

Primary article: Achievement rewards

Once you reach enough achievement points, you will be granted achievement rewards, including an achievement chest, permanent account bonuses, laurels, coins, gems, and unlockable reward skins. Achievement rewards are awarded for every multiple of 500 achievement points, except for the first reward which is awarded for 100 points.

Players are also awarded a title at every 5,000 achievement point interval.

Summary[edit]

The summary provides information on log-in rewards, unlocked rewards, account bonuses, recently completed achievement, and nearly completed achievements. Unlocked skins can be copied an unlimited number of times on any character.

Watch list[edit]

Up to 20 achievements can be added to a watch list and will be displayed in the Achievements UI panel. An achievement can be added or removed by toggling the eye in the bottom right corner of each achievement on and off. The Watch List can be sorted by Tier Completion, Total Completion, or the list can be customized by dragging the achievements in the Watch List tab. Up to a maximum of 6 achievements are displayed on the achievements UI. If there are more than 6 achievements on the watch list, the top six will be displayed. Achievements that have been completed are removed from the watchlist automatically.

Having any achievements on the watch list will override the default watch list. By default, Daily Achievements for open world, PvP or WvW are displayed, depending on where you are in the game. Once the Daily Completionist meta-achievement is completed nothing is displayed by default, except while in Fractals of the Mists or LS3 zones like Bloodstone Fen where achievements from the corresponding daily categories are displayed until they are all completed.

The watch list is useful for tracking a group of related achievements, especially Living World achievement categories.

Categories[edit]

Achievement categories are organized in logical groups:

Trivia[edit]

  • The first time you navigate to the Achievements tab in the Hero window, all recently unlocked achievements will be marked as "NEW". This tag disappears after closing the window, even if you did not view the relevant category.
  • There is an upper limit of 15,000 Achievement points that can be earned through daily Daily Achievement.png and monthly Monthly Achievement.png achievements.
  • There are several inconsistencies across the descriptions:
    • All achievements list the track's current score, but only some indicate the tier's ceiling.
    • Some achievements lack a space before and after the slash (/) sign indicating current and next tier amount to reach, while others have the spaces.
    • Some achievements follow Title Case (ex. X / 5 Types of Enemies) while other use the normal sentence case (ex. X / 50 areas).
    • Other inconsistencies within specific categories are noted in the relevant articles.
  • In early beta versions, daily and monthly achievement chests were placed in the game world instead being available to open via interface like they are now.
  • If you do not complete an achievement for content that is subsequently removed from game (I.e. Rallying flame achievement from Flame and Frost content) then those missed achievements will not show on your list, so you will be unable to see what you have missed from past stories.
  • The June 11, 2013 update added a "((DELETE ME!!))" category to the achievements list which had 8 achievements. This category was deleted from the game in a subsequent update.
  • The Achievements panel was revamped in the Bazaar of the Four Winds release.
  • The Bar Brawl category was added in Bazaar of the Four Winds and subsequently removed in Queen's Jubilee. The achievements were never obtainable since Bar Brawl activity was never actually added to the game.
  • Monthly achievements were removed from the game with the December 16th, 2014 update as part of the new Daily reward system. The rewards given for successfully completing a monthly were replaced by login rewards.
  • Miniature Collections - Sets I, II, and III were moved to Basic Collections with the February 24, 2015 update.
  • Beta Weekend achievements were available for the second beta weekend of Heart of Thorns as a means to gain mastery points.
