Caching Out

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Caching Out is a Sky Pirates achievement. The Aetherblades have hidden small caches of treasure within 7 mini-dungeons and jumping puzzles around Tyria and in the Mists. Aetherblade Caches are similar to chests, but also can reward Dragon Coffers. Find all the caches to complete this achievement. The caches are guarded by 2-3 Aetherblades that respawn 2 minutes after they were defeated. To get each achievement, you only need to approach the cache. Killing the Aetherblades is not required.

Strategies[edit]

  • Four of the caches can be done without doing any jumping puzzles (Weeping, Troll, Cantle, and Shipshape).
  • Players can avoid the jumping part of Goemm's Lab by accepting a portal from a mesmer who has reached the Mad Cache.
  • Mystic Fountains can help players reach the Blackout Cache with as little involvement in PvP against other Worlds as possible.

Breaktooth's Waypoint:

This Aetherblade Cache can be found in Vexa's Lab in Fireheart Rise. Enter and begin completing the mini-dungeon as normal, passing through the Vexa's Creations, Escher (take the portal directly ahead, then go up the right-side stairs to the next portal, then up the next set of stairs to the third portal to reach the exit), and Golem Assistant rooms. Immediately following the floating hexagon platforms with the golem assistants will be the Aetherblade cache guarded by three Aetherblades. Get close to the cache to get the achievement. If you get in trouble, jump back down to the previous area. The Aetherblade will not chase if you run around the corner.

Weeping Cache[edit]

Caledon Haven Waypoint:

This Aetherblade Cache can be found in Tears of Itlaocol in Caledon Forest. Enter and complete the mini-dungeon as normal. While you'll likely need to clear the hylek on the outside to open the door, you can simply run past the Veteran hylek inside with Swiftness without fighting. Head towards the end and complete the puzzle. The Aetherblade cache will be further down the tunnel after the Grand Chest, guarded by three Aetherblades. Get close to the cache to get the achievement.

Head to the Foundation 86 Waypoint and go inside the cave, staying on the right wall the whole time. You'll pass from dredge to bats and grubs, and then into a Murrellow area. Continue to hug the right wall and it will curve around to the left. Climb up the rocks. At the top of the cliff will be the cache and two Aetherblades. Get close to the cache to get the achievement.

Get close to the cache to get the achievement.

The cache is located at the very end, one level down below the Enormous Mistwrought Chest (Obsidian Sanctum), guarded by three Aetherblades. Get close to the cache to get the achievement.
