    I've gotten different results from yours. I was able to get credit for the monthly when I walked into jumping puzzles, before completing them. I wonder if there are jumping puzzles that behave differently.

    Strange. Well, maybe it's enough to just enter them. That would certainly save some time.

    Just like I stated above. There's no jumping required for the monthly jumping puzzle achievement.

    Walking to the beginning of the puzzle is enough, even if you've completed the puzzle before.

    One other thing, from what I've read, it seems that overflow servers count differently. So (to use the example from my previous post) one character walking into the beginning of Urmaug's Secret in an overflow server counts once. Then that same character walks into Urmaug's Secret on the home server, and it counts again. So logging into different overflows will get you credit multiple times for one character and one jumping puzzle.

    It's a super easy monthly task.

    Oh, sorry I somehow missed that sentence. Now I feel rather stupid. Anyway, that just makes it even easier then since I'm almost always put in an overflow server when entering Lion's Arch these days (unless it's very late at night.)

    Not true. You don't need to complete them. I went to that one in Caledon Forest, missed my jump to the very first floating stone and saw I already had the point so I stopped after that (never cared much for those kind of jumping puzzles, but I must say, I liked the one I did yesterday in Sparkfly...)

    I tried to do some WvW, but I don't think I'll get that one. I just can't get myself to stay long enough to even make a kill...

    This just in!

    You don't need to complete the jumping puzzles to get credit for the achievement. Woo!

    Yep, I amuse myself far too easily sometimes.

    Guys, I just logged in and started working on the monthlies and you don't have to complete the jumping puzzles to get credit for them.

    I want to complete the jumping puzzles. Will I still get credit if I do?

    I did a bunch of jumping puzzles yesterday.

    Note to self. Don't take the charr again. Just kidding! She's my mapper, so I kinda need to take her.

    Also, interesting to note. Some jumping puzzles don't require jumping. The underwater asura teleporter for example, it is a puzzle, but it requires brains and no jumps or well-timed dodging of currents or underwater fire.
