Q:

After the most recent update, the majority of the map areas now show that I have completed them. As, Krytan Explorer areas listed 175/178 before the update, it is now 175/175. It appears there were areas that never existed and/or miscounted during the initial release of the game.

My issue is that, now, Maguuma Exploration and Shiverpeaks Exploration are now stuck at 163/165 (Maguuma,) and 170/172 (Shiverpeaks.) However I do have 100% World Map completion… in another thread I have seen a person with 172/172 Shiverpeaks completion. The result is that I feel like these areas do truly exist, but I am missing them.

Does anyone have any ideas for where these 4 areas may be?

I have completed all of the Puzzle areas.

I completed explorer’s succes with a guildmate, with 2-3 areas in Maguuma and Shiverpeaks really tricky to find. Here is a list of the locations we find last :
Maguuma :
Golemagical Institute(SW) and Calx’s Hideout(SE), both are reachable throught portals near thoses locations. For Calx, the portal is at the heart near shunshade.

Same for me as well, though I lack 3 in maguuma and 3 in shiverpeaks… If anyone has everything in Maguuma or Shiverpeaks, could they perhaps upload their maps, so we can check them up against our own?

Well, I just completed my Maguuma one, and I have a little tip that MIGHT help you: Mount Maelstrom. Two of my three areas were around the volcano, and kinda looked like the map was supposed to be that way, but also kinda looked abit “unreavealed” to me. So, try taking a look at that volcano, it might help :P

I found one hidden area in Maguuma that I didn’t have, so now I’m at 171/172.

I’ll try looking around Mount Maelstorm.

Edit: Nothing out of the ordinary… Hm. :I

Edit #2: I found the 2 of Shiverpeaks at the very South-Western area of Timberline Falls. I’ll keep searching for the last Maguuma area.

In my attempts to find such a hidden area in Maelstorm, I have found a way to fall off the entire map. Sadly, this hidden area, does not uncover more map.

You’re a hero. I was missing 2 in Maguuma (aurora and …) and 1 in shiverpeak (serpent’s).

Great to finally have these done, greatly appreciated.

Edit: Geo didn’t count for me, didn’t have it, do now, but still stuck at 164/165.

Guess I need to search more.

Check for blurred spots on your map, anything that looks suspicious is worth looking at.

I don’t know if you’ve done all the puzzle jumps, but if you didn’t, this spot may be missing, Lornar Pass, Griffonrook Run
http://www.casimages.com/img.php?i=120918105254876719.jpg
The acces is by the water, since it’s a puzzle jump area, videos are available.

Except this one, I don’t remember others areas too hard to find, comparing with the wiki should work.

Bit of a tip to everyone. The maps on the wiki don’t have every area explored just yet, but the lists of the “locations” (e.g. Clax’s Hideout) are correct as far as I’ve seen. I was able to get 100% exploration in each area (e.g. Maguuma) with the lists from the wiki. Now if only they’d fix the skill point near Bayt Fallahin…

Let me say on the issue of not getting 100% exploration rewards; They changed chantry of secrets to be its own map, if you got this poi earlier, then you have to go back and reget it, then you’ll be done. Course if the issue is that you’re stuck on a few poi’s and didnt notice, that doesnt help. Im also trying for my 100% map (as opposed to just getting all pois/vistas/sp’s, so this post helps me too.

What exactly is needed for 100% map completion?
I have 100% world completion and all 5 main areas are marked as fully explored after this fix (was missing only 2 from jumping puzzles).

What I’m MISSING right now: 60% of the puzzle achievements, walking inside (and completing) 5 of the dungeons in story mode, walking inside and completing all 8 dungeons in all 3 explorable “versions”, doing the last personal story quest (this means I’m missing some PoI in CM and other dungeons, do those count?).

I’m still at 97% map, and I would like to know which of the stuff I didn’t do will fix this (so I can know what can be skipped for someone rushing to 100% map).

Is anyone else having this issue?

Tell me one thing…
I have all five regions fully explored (Ascalon, Kryta, Orr, Shiverpeaks, Maguma), 100% of every single map (including WvWvW), BUT i still have 97% map completion medal… I had 97% even before i finished explorer achievements. Is this bugged too or am i missing something?
What else is counting to Map completion reward.
Also i got 2 Gifts of Explorationafter visiting Chantry of Secrets (That was the final thing that left in kryta for me), but i did not get any rewards for completing other regions, maybe thats because i got some of them before patch?
When i got reward (Those gifts i mentioned) they were under achievement icon looking right like the icon of world completion medal. It is confusing to me now, i dont know what is what now.

I posted it in Player Helping Players but none reply, which is driving me mad… But it also seems like a bug…

As I wrote on the other topic the thing that bothers me is that I had 171/174 areas done in my achievements log and then, after discovering four more (which will lead me over total number and seems like a bug!) I got only 173/174 areas. Anyone have any idea what’s wrong? Last four discovered areas were Shamans Rookery, Ulukk’s Hunger, Lair of the Coil and Griffonrook Run.

Anyone had same problems and solved it somehow?

Necro, I’m having the same problem for Shiverpeaks, I was stuck at 171/174. A comparison to a complete map showed I needed Griffonrook Run, Lair of the Serpent, and Ulukk’s Hunger, got all three but it only bumped me to 173/174. I’m at a loss.

I believe the required areas were updated for the Halloween patch, but there’s not a lot of folks complaining about this, so I’m beginning to suspect a fairly recent bug was introduced somewhere, but I do hope I’m wrong.

I have now achieved both the explorations and the gold star. I did my best to find things on my own, but once stuck I used
http://gw2.mmorpg-life.com/interactive-maps/
and put up the zone map on my other monitor, then carefully compared my game map with the zone map. For the explorations you need to find all the white names, and there are a couple that aren’t on the website. Griffonrook run was one, and the Asura jump puzzle in nw Maelstrom was another.

I also used http://pandemos.org/forums/629668 though when a patch added some locations to the achieve this did not get updated. Still, there may be something on there you haven’t seen. If so, google its name from the list and you’ll get directions (that’s how I found out about Griffonrook).

A quick update, apparently a jumping puzzle in Dredgehaunt Cliffs is part of the explorer achievement, which I didn’t have. Go to Wyrmblood Waypoint and walk west over to the ruins, it will start a chain quest to get you in. I was lucky and someone was already doing it, so I was able walk right in.

Note, once you enter, this puzzle area will not show as a white zone on your map after you enter it, but it will help you get to 174/174…..

Ah yes that one in Dredgehaunt, hoo boy. I went to the NPC to start it and he just ignored me and wouldn’t let me read his books. Fortunately someone else showed up at that moment and started it, so in I went. I fumbled around in the dark, jumped poorly, and never found a single trap lever to pull, but was useful in combat since even downscaled an 80 is pretty tough there. Then just as we were on the final boss the server reset was announced! We killed the boss and looted the chest with 15 seconds to spare.

I am also having difficulty with discovering the last 2% of Maguuma and Shiverpeak areas. I’ve already achieved 100% World Map Completion. Comparing my map to the areas listed in the comments, the only one I seemed to be missing was Ulukk’s Hunger, which bumped Shiverpeaks up from 95% to 98% when I entered the caves for its mini dungeon found at Wyrmblood Waypoint. Do I need to do more jumping puzzles, dungeons, both, or something else I’m not thinking of? If yes to puzzles, could you let me know which ones or post a link with their locations if possible, please? Thanks so much! I really appreciate the help
