How did you extract the id from this item? Gandlos 12:43, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

Darqam has made a website which picks up all the item ids in the game (visible through the API), and it gives you the id within that information. Basically he takes the "v2/items" endpoint and explores all the given ids.
Long winded version using achievement API: GW2 has its own API which is useful for things like this. If you start with the top level "v2/achievements/groups", find the one you want (Story Journal) and use those achievement categories in "v2/achievements/categories", find the one you want (Flashpoint) and then use those ids within "v2/achievements" to find the relevant achievement id (3402 "The Druid Stone"). The "bits" listed there match the order ingame and can be checked individually using the given item ids in the "v2/item" api.
Short version: If the achievement id is specified on the main achievement page, you can preview Widget:Collection items (by pressing edit, pasting {{#Widget:Collection items}} on The Druid Stone, and pressing preview) - the table that pops up at the bottom of the page tells you the item ids. I'll go add the achievement ids to that page now such that the short version will work in future. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 15:31, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
That still sounds too complex, so I've created Widget:Achievement table. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:57, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
Thats great and very helpful! But there is one thing that it doesn't work on and that is if the achievement is a hidden one like Awakening the Druid Stone and the other ones that come after it. Maybe you have a solution for that? Gandlos 23:21, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
Sadly the achievements don't become visible on the API until at least one player unlocks it ingame... -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 00:00, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
But Awakening the Druid Stone and Sprouting the Druid Stone have already been unlocked, yet it doesn't work. Anything that can be done? Gandlos 00:04, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
I've left a message for the arenanet API person to investigate. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 00:10, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
API has now been updated by Lye. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:11, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
