Jump Around!

GW2 Guild Wars 2 hidden strawberry patch
I'm on the right track!
Candles light the way through a musty, rusty pipe.
I did a couple of jumping puzzles recently and actually was only mildly frustrated. I think my heightened FPS is helping me with my coordination so I'm not falling so much, plus I just got that cool trait where you get 50% less fall damage too. I love the name: Descent Into Madness. Could mesmer be any more perfect for me??
It makes me smile too, cuz when I hit the ground, not only do I fall flat on my face, always good for a giggle, but I also cast Chaos Storm! It's like, awww, the poor mesmer fell down! Look how angry she is!

The first jumping puzzle I completed was for strawberries. I'm not even sure if it would qualify as an official puzzle, since there was no chest reward, although for a chef like me, strawberries can be reward enough! I saw this vid on YouTube about the Charr's hidden strawberry patch and had to check it out!

The most beautiful scrap yard I've ever seen. Anya is guarding her little strawberry patch!
The second puzzle I did was the Sharkmaw Caverns puzzle in LA, officially called Weyandt's Revenge. I had seen the entrance to this previously while completing the vista near there, but when I jumped down the "throat", I died, so I just moved on to other things.
This time, Majyst (on Carnelion, his necro) led me into the caves and helped me through some of the rough parts. It was totally fun! The pirate captain taunted us as we ran circles through the maze and stumbled down the trapped hallways. I felt like I was in an Indian Jones movie! Or maybe The Goonies would be more appropriate considering the company I keep.  ;)

"Don't mind Shane, he's not the talkative type." Success!
Maj is giving the captain a piece of his/her mind.
Lastly, I went on my own and did the Troll's End jumping puzzle. Once again, my chef obsession led me to this one, as I read on the wiki that there were grapes at the end. The funny thing is that I almost found this puzzle by myself accidentally when I was completing the LA map. I don't want to give it away cuz I think it's kinda neat that this secret is hiding right in the middle of town, so I'm not going to post much about it here. But I must say, who was the first person to find this? How excited must they have been to discover something new! I think the Wiki is amazing, but sometimes I just wanna find things out on my own. It makes it more satisfying. I guess that's the adventurer in me. :D

Spiral, the intrepid explorer, fearlessly ventures through the damp torch-lit caves, fingers brushing the cold stalactites, feet treading cautiously over creaking boards. The only sounds are the drip-drip-drip of water, the far-off screech of cave bats, and the excited beating of her own heart.

  1. Spiral, I read you posts and I can't help but think you should be a published adventure/mystery novel or short story writer, or something.
