Crystal Oasis

Author Notes

Before you attempt some of these achievements, I recommend that you bring the core mounts with third tier mastery upgrades to make exploring easier. If you have access to the Griffon, this will also help greatly.

General

Guild Wars 2 Crystal Oasis Achievement GuideDune Rider
Unlock the raptor mount by completing the Seeker’s Village task region in Crystal Oasis, and by purchasing a raptor saddle from Aksim.

This will unlock at the start of first story step if you choose to buy the raptor mount from the heart vendor.

Guild Wars 2 Crystal Oasis Achievement GuideA Trip Down Memory Lane
Win the memory game hosted by a lonely host.

In Hatari Tablelands you will find a mastery point. The game is simple, play Simon Says with Pahan and unlock the mastery. There are three phases where the answers get progressively harder. There is no need to panic about the difficulty as this is quite easy to complete.

Guild Wars 2 Crystal Oasis Achievement GuideJunkyard Weaponsmith
Combine objects to create makeshift weapons for the unarmed villagers of Zephyr’s Trace, in Destiny’s Gorge.

Go to Waypoint Destiny’s Gorge and look for items to craft makeshift weapons. You need to make three different weapons, a shield, a hammer and a bow. The items you need to find for this achievement don’t have obvious titles, so you will need to look for the glowing interact particle effects.

Once you pick up and item, explore the area to find the other item required to craft the desired weapon. These items appear randomly throughout the area, so you may not find the same items in the same place as other players.

  • Hammer (Tree Branch & Anvil)
  • Shield (Metal Scraps & Broken Chair)
  • Bow (String & Rusty Saw)

Guild Wars 2 Crystal Oasis Achievement GuideUp in Arms
Create 30 makeshift weapons for the unarmed villagers of Zephyr’s Trace in Destiny’s Gorge.

This is very similar to “Junkyard Weaponsmith”. The requirements are the same, however instead of making the three different weapon types. You need to create 30 weapons of any sort and deposit them in the weapon cache’s around the camp.

Guild Wars 2 Crystal Oasis Achievement GuideJust a Sip
Convince Master Chef Laraib in Amnoon that you are a worthy sous-chef.

Master Chef Laraib can be found in the Point of Interest Amnon Civic Center. Once you locate him, interact with the pot of soup. This will start the mastery challenge. The requirements are simple, follow the chefs instructions and throw the ingredients he wants at him.

You will have a progress bar above your head. If you take to long and the bar runs out, you will fail this mastery and have to start over. This can be a little tedious, but becomes easier as you learn the locations for each ingredient.

Guild Wars 2 Crystal Oasis Achievement GuideLost Pilgrims
Speak to the ritual priests Hehmnut, Kahdat, and Nahtem at their gravesites. The priests will only appear in response to a Vision Crystal.

Around Elona Reach you will find the remains of three priests. These priests will become active if you approach them with a vision crystal. You can carry vision crystals on your mount, just make sure you don’t drop the crystal.

Mastery: High Vault

Ritual Priest Hehmnut

Located just west of Point of Interest Temple of kormir high up on the mountain ridge. There’s two ways to reach the remains, one is from jumping across from Nahtem’s remains. The other is to use the Springer to climb up the temple just below the vision crystal.

Ritual Priest Kahdat

These remains are found to the east of the temple. From the waypoint, head to the vision crystal (drop down from above). Collect the crystal and take it over to the remains in the canyon.

Ritual Priest Nahtem

To reach the remains you will need to go through Diviner’s Passage and climb up the rocky cliff face using the Springer. The vision crystal can be found down below on a small rock platform. After picking it up, use the Springer to climb back up to the remains above.

Guild Wars 2 Crystal Oasis Achievement GuideRace to the Finish: Crystal Oasis
Finish the race around the Free City of Amnoon in first, second, or third place.

You can find the race for this map at Waypoint Amnoon. If it’s not active, just wait for it to appear. Once you sign up to the race, come in either 1st, 2nd or 3rd place to earn the achievement. This is extremely easy with the Raptor mastery Canyon Jumping as it allows you to jump ahead of your competition.

This may take several attempts depending on how many people are doing the race.

Unlike the Expert adventure, the Master one requires you to fly through a building. This is extremely tricky as there are lots of obstacles that will reduce your speed causing you to fail.
