One of the really fun new things that has been given to us along with the fantastic rebuilding of Lion’s Arch is a brand new scavenger hunt-like achievement that will have you out blasting poor, defenseless little karka babies throughout the city. In fact, there’s really no better way to get to know all of the nooks and crannies of the renewed city than to explore it with a rifle in hand, searching for the tell-tale sounds of those little proto-horrors!
And something that you should know about this particular scavenger hunt is that ArenaNet has really done the players a favor by giving us a way to track every single crab that we have killed, and – even more importantly – those that we haven’t yet killed. On top of that, there is a little clue given to the location of each crab so that you can go hunting for it really without the need for an online guide. Just pin the achievement to your tracker so that you have easy access to it as you hunt around town.
Well, it’s almost true that you don’t need a guide. There are a couple of sticking places that will certainly tempt you to go look up the walkthrough. So, to save you from yourselves, I’ve provided a set of helpful nudges below for the ones that I found especially head-scratching.
- Grand Piazza – The hard thing about this clue is that it is in the wrong place. It should say “Commodore’s Quarter” instead.
- Eastern Ward – Three of the karka in this area are locked behind a door that only opens at night.
- Commodore’s Quarters – If you think you’ve found the “flowers above the door” then you probably have. Shooting this one correctly feels like a cheat somehow. Just keep at it.
- Sanctum Harbor – Looking for some fog? You should probably save this one for last, and then go look at a walkthrough. That way you only used it for one of them. Seriously, it’s hard. Still want a hint? Look for secret caves right at the waterline up against a white wall.
Good luck with the hunt! Princess gives some nice gifts!
