Updated DT Coin & SW Badge Locations

Quite some time ago Anet added the checklist feature to past achievements. Unfortunately many guides were created before then using a numbering system different than what Anet had used causing comparability issues for players using those guides.

Below is a conversion table that I made to assist players comparing what Anet has with Dulfy's numbering system.

  • I'm ever so glad you reposted this. It remains a go-to link for me, since people still end up being confused about Dulfy's never-updated guide(s).
    (The wiki community doesn't seem much inclined to link the conversion table to the primary articles for these achievements, so I expect to keep seeing people asking about it.)

    I strenuously stand by the fact that the wiki belongs to the Guild Wars 2 community, and those with coding skills should have no more say in its content than those without coding skills. My current role on the wiki may be more of a hands-off, watching-over-all sort of deal, but it doesn't preclude me from helping to equalize the field. Take what I write below as a suggestion, and feel free to edit it as you would see fit.

    Some wiki advice:

    • There's a discussion to be found on https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Talk:Golden_Lost_Badge#External_links . Everyone's voice is welcome, though a certain level of decorum is appreciated. I encourage you to visit the page, and then partake in the discussion if you wish.
    • The "External links" section is often the last section on a page, but must go above any nav, such as {{Dry Top nav}} or {{The Silverwastes nav}}

    **The guide was written at the time of release, prior to the achievements interface being updated to include numbering of individual objective. The wiki uses the same numbering as the game. A mapping of the two numbering systems can be found on [[:File:Lost Coin Dulfy translation table.jpg|this table]].

    In response to my comment that the wiki community hasn't yet included the information on the primary articles for these achievements. I don't want to derail this thread discussing wiki policy; you can PM me in game & I'll do my best to offer an unbiased assessment of the attempts to get it in there over the last two years.

    I had to google to find this thread. The wiki does have it now, if you click through links to get to https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Talk:Golden_Lost_Badge#Dulfy_Numbering_versus_Anet_Numbering but Ayrilana's chart remains a more compact and handy version.

    Players still working on older achieves, the OP offers a very handy way to check Dulfy vs. Achieve badge numbers while following Dulfy's videos and screenshots.

  • Thank you very much for doing this :3
    I was going crazy with the Lost Golden Badges order.

    I found my last coin a few days ago and it was just one more achievement point? I was kind of expecting some sort of completion achievement in addition to it..

  • OMG Thank you!!! I was getting so frustrated with these outdated guides. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the hard work people do putting these guides together but after A-Net assigned numbers and the guides didn't catch up, well, it causes a bit of frustration on all parts I'm sure. So thank you! For taking the time to make a guide to the guides!! :)
