    Are there hidden puzzles like in RIFT?

    I've seen the Sylvari jumping puzzle, but are there more puzzles in the game and do they reward you for completion?

    My reference to RIFT is for comparison like the Rabbit Maze and the Bottom of the Lake puzzle (Seen them in videos that Jesse Cox showcased).

    There are tons of puzzles, I think it is somewhere around 1-3 per zone. Like the Sylvari zone you mention there are 3 puzzles there that I know of. There are also other hidden things like the underwater organ

    It seems to be 1-2 jumping puzzles per zones so far. 4 in WvW (with traps that players can control to keep the other teams out)

    You can get a lot of unique stuff from exploring and sorting puzzles, and at some of the puzzles there is a boss at the end.

    Reward is a chest at the end containing random items and an acheivement unlocked.

    There are definitely many hidden puzzles and stuff. Quite a few are really well hidden too.

    This guy has a ton of jumping puzzle vids (as well as other goodies) on his channel if you're interested.

    Sometimes chests, sometimes vistas at the end.

    Always look behind waterfalls or even a bush in a corner or some seaweed underwater might be hiding a hidden passageway

    But don't go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to.

    Please tell me you've seen The Other Guys.

    On topic - I believe there are achievements for puzzle completion. Someone else has mentioned that a few of the known "vistas" require you to complete jumping puzzles to reach. So, if you're a map completionist like I am, you're going to do at least some of the puzzles one way or another.


    Little by little I grow a little more bitter, sit down in my chair like a grown man to his dinner. "Where's my newspaper, boy? Dog, fetch me my slippers. Feed me, do the dishes, if you need me I'm in the shitter."

    These are just known ones that have been documented on the wiki. But there are many others plus a lot of mini jump puzzles that haven't made that list.

    Like these:

    Each puzzle has reward chests at the end. Those chests also reset after sometime so you can go back and do the puzzle again if you like. The reward scales with your level

    I would like some elite jumping puzzles that reward us with utility skills and one that gives elite skill. (for professions of course)
    Something like gw1 quests for skills (both profession [easy way : go and buy] and racial [can't buy]) but in different style

    They had this kind of thing before but decided against having special content per profession and just changed them to skill challenges. However some skill challenges are linked with puzzles. Like the one in the Charr area.
