Jumping puzzles are open world puzzles with platforming elements that require the player to find the correct route to the end of the puzzle. The reward for solving the puzzle resets daily (per character) and is typically a Grand Chest, Splendid Chest, or Magnificent Chest. Completing a jumping puzzle will also reward the player with an achievement. Some common themes for the puzzles are environments matching the theme of the zone, veteran enemies guarding the end chest, other hidden chests, and false endings.

Trivia[edit]

  • Brisban Wildlands is the only Central Tyrian zone without a jumping puzzle. (Proxemics Lab is considered a Guild Puzzle rather than a jumping puzzle.)
  • Players have been known to create their own jumping puzzles with decorations inside their guild hall.
  • In addition to the 4 listed jumping puzzles in Caledon Forest, there is an unfinished puzzle that starts south of Town of Cathal Waypoint.
