Scavenger hunt is an unofficial term commonly used to describe a series of steps in a quest fashion to acquire something in the game. This may include talking to a series of NPCs, obtaining items by crafting, forging, slaying specific bosses, or simply buying them, doing activities, WvW, PvP, etc. Scavenger hunts may also be time-gated, and may have sub scavenger hunts (eg. crafting legendaries).
Most scavenger hunts are non-repeatable on an account-wide basis, but are not limited to single character participation; any character on the account can complete one or more of the needed steps.
