    Default Shark Jumping achievement, locations.

    here's locations I have found so far, going to locations can be a bit tricky or you take a long path. I'm blessed with Bahmi racial and warrior leaps so it shortens my path.

    Confirmed locations:

    Moonriven Breach /setwaypoint 2108, 6395
    Temple of Ranri /setwaypoint 3874. 7838

    Atragarian Well /setwaypoint 3013 7151
    Ghar Station Mem /setwaypoint 3833 6510


    Draumheim

    Thekk Overlook /setwaypoint 5192, 4638 (This is a series of jumps from arch to arch, so aim carefully.)
    Gauntlet Street /setwaypoint 5770 5169
    Hedfell Farms /setwaypoint 4982 4497 (Headwell Farms)
    Vale of Dreams /setwaypoint 4588 5544
    Shadow Scion /setwaypoint 6700 6357
    (Must be landed on top of pillar, can land on top afterwards.)

    Tarken Glacier

    Circle of Gryfnill /setwaypoint 6640 3450
    Temple of Aia /setwaypoint 3548 3424
    Skarntinn Shelf /setwaypoint 4124 2820

    This is going to sound dumb, but what do you do when you get there?

    I was jumping all over everything at The Well, and never got the achievement.

    At The Well, I THINK I might see something, but I tried to do it about 40 times and either failed or it isn't what you are supposed to do ... there is a rock that juts out and I mount up on my shark and run out on the rock, then jump towards some glowing ring that is off slightly to the right.

    Is that what you are trying to hit or do?

    The Atragarian well one seemed a bit iffy to me.. it didn't register the first 2/3 times even though i'd jumped through the circle, and only registered when I landed on the rock on the far side.

    The rest of them seemed to register alot more easily.

    All the ones in Gorbo are correct. I finally figured out that yes, you do have to jump through the blue ring in the middle of the air and go through it. If you miss, you gotta do it again. And you do have to do it while mounted on your shark.

    Also, there is one, I forget which, that if you go to the coords, there are 2 wide ledges, one on each side of the coords. If you go on one side, you can see the blue ring and jump. From the other side, you can't see it, and it doesn't count.

    It's on tip of a thorn/tentacle stone up there, then you see a glowing ring to jump through bit right from the line where the thorn/tentacle goes.

    Found The Big Dig!!!



    Jump to the ledge ahead and then the one after that. The jump lands on the ice peninsula.

    Thekk Overlook is 5192, 4638

    Jump from the rocks near the house onto the arches then you'll see the circle.

    What's funny is I found a lot of these portals in Closed Beta and had no idea what they were, even speculated with Jonus in game maybe they were raid portals not in game yet

    What am i looking for at Shadow Scion? been jumping off the edge onto the 'flat' platforms jutting out, not seeing any portal

    You need to land on top of the pillar when you jump through the Shadow Scion 'portal'. If you miss it the first time you won't see the circle any more but you can jump on the top of the pillar and complete the achievement.

    Was a weird one because i had landed perfectly on the platform a few times already thinking the jump was from one flat platform to the other one so i was alternating between each one, when i missed the platform and landed on the "arm" holding it up, it completed
