Coin Collector: Uplands Achievement Guide

Beyond Scarlet's basement is an entire area in Dry Top called the Uplands. Here you will find an additional the occasional Lost Coin scattered through the zone. Collecting all thirty of the coins lost in the Uplands area will get you the Coin Collector: Uplands achievements. This guide will show you the locations of each of the coins and how to get to each of them swiftly in one rotation of the map.


Uplands Coin Locations

When collecting the coins for this achievement keep in mind the following tips:

  • Try to keep a passive speed boost, like a signet, active during your search for the coins.
  • Having your "highlight ally names" key pressed while searching will allow you to see the names of the coins well before you actually see a coin.
  • Try to only search when a sandstorm isn't active in the zone. This will allow you to be able to see terrain better and keep an eye out for necessary aspect crystals.
  • Working on this achievement with others will help you spot paths up to the coin locations much more quickly.
