Map bonus reward
By completing events, jumping puzzles, and mini-dungeons in a map, you’ll be periodically awarded with one of its associated bonuses in addition to the normal rewards.
Map bonus rewards are earned for completing events and other activities in PvE maps. Each explorable map has its own reward track. To unlock the map bonus reward for your account you need to complete the map once with any character.
- Reward tracks are account-based, and all characters on an account can contribute to them.
- Rewards tracks are structured in tiers, with a reward at every 200 points up to 8000. Rewards are given immediately to the current character when a reward tier is reached.
- After 8000 points the reward track resets and starts giving rewards from the beginning.
- Character-based diminishing returns affect map bonus rewards.
- The diminishing returns reset at 00:00 UTC each day.
- Every 20th reward gives ten times as many of the current item.
- Reward tracks change every week at Thursday 20:00 UTC.
- There is an eight-week cycle of reward tracks.
- Consumables can be used to gain points or increase the rate of earning points in maps:
- Pact Scout's Mapping Materials — grants 200 points within Central Tyria zones. It is possible to buy up to 6 of these from Pact Supply Network Agents daily. Effects that increase points gained do not affect this consumable.
- Map Bonus Rate Increase — a guild upgrade that increases all map bonuses gained by 3–10% based on the upgrades to the guild hall
- Potion of Verdant Attunement — increases rewards in Verdant Brink
- Potion of Auric Attunement — increases rewards in Auric Basin
- Potion of Tangled Attunement — increases rewards in Tangled Depths
