- Local Hero: Prior to repeatable hearts, you needed at least 2 characters to complete this as there were only 303 renown hearts. Repeatable heart count on each completion.
- Emergency Response Hero: Failing an event will not count for this achievement.
- Been There, Done That: Complete maps, which includes collecting all renown hearts, waypoints, points of interest, hero points, vistas. This includes the Chantry of Secrets, all five racial capitals and Lion's Arch. This does not include dungeons, storyline areas, or any PvP maps, and the four WvW maps. You also do not need to complete zones added since the game was launched, including Southsun Cove, Maguuma Wastes or Heart of Maguuma.
- Lifetime Survivor: Earn experience without being defeated, zoning, or logging out. Being downed does not affect progression; the counter resets if you are defeated, without being able to rally. All experience earned counts towards the achievement, including points from crafting and unlocking waypoints. This can be achieved easily by using several Tome of Knowledges on a character around level 76 or 77 to get them to Level 80.
- Birthday—Year 1: Talk to Birthday Vendor if your character is at least 1 year old but hasn't received this achievement yet. You only need to do so with 1 character to unlock the title for your whole account. Use the /age chat command to find out how old your character and account are.
- The Mastery Points for Personal Story are awarded on a per-chapter basis.
- Several titles contain references:
- Crime and Punishment is a novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
- This Far, No Further is quoted from Star Trek: First Contact, where Picard defends a controversial decision. "They invade our space, and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back. Not again! The line must be drawn here! This far, no further!"
- Research and destroy might refer to military "seek and destroy" missions. Or likely the song "Search and Destroy" by The Stooges.
- Only mostly unkillable might refer to a line from The Princess Bride where Miracle Max announces that Westley is "only mostly dead."
