Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurm Egg Scrambler
Kill 30 great wurm eggs before the larvae hatch.

During the escort part of this boss, you will need to protect whichever vigil member you’re following. On the way to their designated Wurm head, there will be various eggs for you to destroy. You can’t miss them as they’re part of the event, and have to be destroyed to progress.

You will need to destroy 30 eggs. This may seem difficult, but it can be completed over several different encounters.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurm Hurdler
Avoid getting hit by any of the great jungle wurm’s spin attacks.

This is something that can be earned at all three Wurm heads. Each of the three Wurms follow the same attack patterns and animations. During the fight, you will see the Wurm coil up, at which point it will either spit out eggs, or perform a large or small spin. Either attack will knock back whoever is in the large orange AoE. It is possible to dodge this attack, but to earn the achievement you need to not be hit by this attack.

If you’re playing with caution, it’s very easy to avoid this attack. Your commander may call for a burn phase, at which point the Wurm may perform this attack. You can either dodge through the attack, or play it safe by holding back until the animation is complete.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurmslayer
Defeat each of the great jungle wurm’s 3 heads in Bloodtide Coast.

This achievement will generally dictate which Wurm head you decide to fight early on. You should keep in mind that you need to fight all three bosses at some point, so getting this out the way early is a good idea.

To defeat each of the Wurm heads you need to first decapitate them, then proceed to kill the head. However, you will only gain full credit for killing the Wurm you’re at if the boss event is successful. If one of the other heads fails, you will not earn any progress towards this achievement.

Once a Wurm head is close to death, your group needs to coordinate the final decapitation. When this happens, the event timer will drop to 1 minute. All three decapitated Wurm heads must be killed to claim victory.

Note: You will need to decapitate and kill each of the three Wurm heads in different runs.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurm Decapitator
Decapitate 3 heads of the great jungle wurm in Bloodtide Coast.

This is very similar to “Wurm Slayer”, the only difference is you gain credit for decapitating the wurm heads, instead of needing to kill the boss fully to claim credit. It is possible to join runs where a few players can decapitate various Wurm heads, while earning credit and the bronze reward chest.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurmicidal Manic
Successfully decapitate the great jungle wurm in Bloodtide Coast and defeat all three of its heads.

For this you will need to decapitate one of the heads, then follow through with a full victory on the boss. If one of the heads fails, you will not earn this achievement.

Note: This achievement will reward you with a Core Tyria Mastery Point. This achievement does not count towards “Triple Trouble”.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Amber Wurmslayer
Kill the amber head of the great jungle wurm in Bloodtide Coast.

These three achievements are tied to decapitating and killing each of the three Wurm heads. You will need to successfully kill the boss to claim credit for each head.

Each of these achievements will reward you with a Core Tyria Mastery point.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurm Kleptomaniac
Steal a bottle of rum from the pirate shipwreck.

While following Crusader Xutt to the Cobalt Wurm on the west coast, you will need to swim for a short period which will lead you to a small island. There will be a pirate with bottles of rum on the ground, pick up one of these bottles and drink it.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurm Demolitionist
Place 30 powder kegs at the base of the cobalt great jungle wurm.

During your encounter with the Cobalt Wurm, you will be required to place powder kegs at a marked site in front of the Wurm. This can be a little tricky due to how much is going on in the area. The keg spawns will also switch locations after a short period.

You will need to place 30 kegs in the marked location without being interrupted.


Crimson Wurm

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Phytotoxin Enthusiast
Expose yourself to phytotoxins while escorting the Vigil crusader.

While on your way to the Crimson Wurm you will encounter a husk just before breaking through a rock wall. In the clearing where the husk spawns will be a toxin cloud. Make sure you run up and into this toxin cloud before it vanishes.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurm Phytotoxin Collector
Collect each of the 3 colored phytotoxins around the crimson great jungle wurm.

Once you reach Crimson Wurm, you will see three toxin extractors around the area. From here, once the fight starts there will be three different colored toxin clouds floating around the area. You need to run through the three colors and collect the red, blue or yellow toxin.

As long as you pick up each toxin at least once, this will unlock. It’s possible to hold all three toxins at the same time.

 


Amber Wurm

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurm Bait
Slathers yourself in wurm attractant while escorting the Vigil crusader.

During your escort of Crusader Zepp on his way to Amber Wurm, there will be an abomination that spawns just before the bog.  You will want to make sure you’re stacked on top of this enemy, and stay there until it dies. Once it explodes, you will be covered in a pheromone attractant.

Guild Wars 2 Triple Trouble Wurm Achievement Guide Wurm Barf
Get regurgitated by the amber great jungle wurm.

During the fight with Amber Wurm, you will see a slow-moving abomination in the area. You will need to stack on top of it, then kill it to gain the attractant buff. Once obtained, you need to stand on the designated area for the Wurm to eat the players covered in this pheromone.

Once eaten, you will find a harpoon gun inside the stomach. From here, shoot the pyloric valve in front of you. After the valve has been destroyed, the Wurm will regurgitate the group and award you the achievement.
