In order to acquire GW2 Major in Enhancement Achievement, you have to find or buy all World 2 item upgrades. There are 10 available item upgrades scattered through all three zones, but most of them are inside the third zone. Note: If you have all items from the World 1, as part of achievement Minor In Enhancement, you should have 1/10 of Major In Enhancement Achievement from World 2.
World 2 Zone 1 item upgrades
2. Improved Shovel
At the end of Zone one, just before the 2nd to last Checkpoint, in the Shopkeeper house facing the zone 1 cage, you can find and buy Improved Shovel called Nice Scoop for 325 baubles.
In order to complete Associates of Baubles World 2 achievement you should collect every World 2, Zone 1 bauble in one playthrough.
Tips: Acquiring this achievement in Infantile mode will save your time, but you should buy Keys to unlock the chests since the mobs don’t drop the Keys in this mode.
From the Start to the Checkpoint 1
Inside a hidden room on the ground level of Zone 1, with many water sprouts, you can find Red Bauble at the end of sprouts path. Another bauble this time Yellow Bauble is inside another hidden room, behind waterfall just befor the 2nd Checkpoint.
In order to complete GW2 Bachelor of Secrets World 2 achievement you have to find every hidden room in World 2 Zone 2.
From the start to the Checkpoint 3
From the Checkpoint 3 to the Checkpoint 4
Hidden Room 1: Following the secret path toward the World 2 zone 2 shortcut, through a flower push, and a hidden cloud, keep climbing toward the upper part of that mountain. Place bomb between various tree branches and enter the hidden room 1.
Target cloud in the distance as landing point with flower boost.
GW2 Wings of Justice Achievement takes place right after the first beam scale puzzle, and the checkpoint you pass.
When you reach the flower, turn around toward the small cloud behind the big rock structure nearby. When you jump on the cloud, proceed quickly since the cloud will disappear.
Then, on next plateau, push the box several times. Jump on the box, and climb on the bird at the top.
After that, you’ll be teleported on the bird’s back. This is where the shortcut for Zone 2 starts. But, be careful, there are several owls and you can be knocked back on impact with them. You can easily pass this phase by turning your camera toward your bird’s tail. Using this method, you can easily spot owls coming from behind. It’s very important to dodge them, since the front incoming owls can be avoided by standing on bird’s helmet.

One of proper ways to survive.
Successfully surviving this challenge takes you to the last checkpoint in Zone 2.
In order to complete Associate of Secrets World 2 achievement you should find every hidden room in World 2 Zone 1. There are 11 hidden rooms. In the list below you can see all hidden places that we found so far. Some of them count toward achievement, some of them are dig spots, and some of them give nothing.
GW2 Tiptoe achievement can be obtained if you complete World 2 Zone 1 without angering any Hillbilies. Most of them you can easily bypass, but the last group is little tricky. After the part with wooden beams, you will come across a Shop Keeper house (you can see the Zone chest in the cage behind the house, in the distance). When you turn right, you will see two Hillbilies on the main road. Next to the Shop Keeper house you will notice a yellow barrel. Destroy it and a crescent will appear. Just run through it, and you’ll become invisible. Also, avoid red barrels because they explode.
