Sticking to its core concept “continuous innovation”, Guild Wars 2 is subverting the traditional game setting and design. Players who have played MMORPG know what is exploring a map. And they have done that as well just by fits and snatches or get a quest. However, in Guild Wars 2, exploring map is not only searching on a map but with more fun.
Guild Wars 2 utilizes a highly structured, comprehensive achievement system. All the accomplishments you gain in the world of Tyria will be record as achievements. All the characters under an account can share the achievements. You don’t have to complete the achievements again for new characters.
Guild Wars 2 players like the exploring map achievement most and pay most attention to it. To explore a map, you have to open all the teleports in the map, read all the map fractals and find out all the hidden points. Once you complete all the exploration requirements, you will be rewarded with items to help you explore in the world of Tyria. Though there are a lot rewards, many players explore for the fun not for the reward. Your game progress will not be affected even if you don’t explore the map. You can upgrade by other ways.
The moment you complete 100% map exploration, you are famous in Tyria. That means your footprints are all over Tyria and you are a successful explorer. And you will be rewarded with ingredients for legendary weapons so that you can craft your own legendary weapons to show off your glory. We can say that because of Guild Wars 2’s featured achievement system, players have a new experience of exploring maps. They won’t let go if they don’t finish exploring.
