    Your favorite jumping puzzle thus far

    i looked around the game and saw all kinds of ppl helping others playing trough the puzzles, they are indeed fun but like everything, everyone has their own favorite.

    mine is the one in lions arch with the pirate ghost, it's both challenging and fun to get trough and it makes you think further then the obvious.

    what's your favorite?

    Do vistas count?

    I have only done one jumping puzzle that was not a vista, and that one was quite elaborate. To get to it, we had to secure an area, then it opened a portal. Then there was areas underwater with fire throwers (yeah, weird), sharks, charr, and puzzles as well. It finished off with a big fight with a charr boss, in a room with floating chests all over. It was really cool.

    Another was a rather long and challenging jumping puzzle that led to a vista & skill point. It was an Ascalon wall (in the south east of ... Diessa?) so there was some ghosts to fight as well.

    Vistas are great. When I read about them, I was so uninterested, but they're really one of my favorite additions because of the puzzle aspect. I don't care for the view (I skip it every time), but getting to them is so fun.

    My favorite jumping puzzle is the hidden one in Lion's Arch that isn't open (unless they've opened it since beta) for the pirate gear.

    Some of the views from vistas were cool, but yeah, I wouldn't care for them except that they are fun jumping puzzles. The early ones to be honest sometimes felt too easy & short, but the later ones I did were pretty involved. I like that falling in later ones, you don't fall all the way so you can continue from a relatively near location.

    did you know you can completely skip the flame hallway of the charr land jumping puzzle, all you need to do is get down and jump back on but on one point you should go left instead of right.
    when you're at that point you''ll know, all i am gonna say is that's it's just a web away.

    I haven't done any of the LA ones yet (or really explored LA at all really, keep getting distracted in starter zones), but my favorite one so far is the one in Metrica Province next to Oola's old lab (I think that's the location; it's been awhile since BWE3). Fun portal attunements, lightning strikes, and high winds kept it pretty entertaining.

    Is there a way to find those on the map? I mean for the non-vista ones?!?\

    The one non-vista one I did find I got there mostly by accident. Well, there was a "portal closed" sign on the map for a while. But I think I am missing a lot of those due to not knowing they are there.

    I don't believe any of the jumping puzzles are marked on maps.
