Better Off Dred

DrakTharon-Keep-Better-off-Dred-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Engage King Dred and slay 6 Drakkari Gutrippers or Drakkari Scytheclaw during his defeat.

There are 7 raptor mobs near the boss, pull 1 raptor nearest you on it’s own and kill it. You will have 6 raptors left that are needed for fight.

If you fail the achievement the raptors won’t respawn so be careful.

A way to make things easier is to have main tank on boss and an off tank pick up the adds. Dps can nuke the pulled raptors (either wait for boss to call them or off tank pull them). Make sure the healer is ready for healing through the bleeds on players.

Once all 6 raptors are dead you will now be able to nuke boss and kill him, just make sure all 6 raptors are dead first.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.

Consumption Junction

DrakTharon-Keep-Consumption-Junction-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Trollgore before Consume reaches ten stacks.

The boss will use Consume on players & NPC’s that are in his line of sight. Position the boss using the small pillars (door entrance you came through) and face him to the tank only.

Healer try to position so can heal tank but still out of sight of the boss, and dps split so 1-2 on adds and at least 2 on boss. The dps on boss need to nuke boss but keep an eye on when hes about the use Consume each time and move out of sight. When he uses Consume on the tank move back in and repeat.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.

Oh Novos!

DrakTharon-Keep-Oh-Novos-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Novos the Summoner without allowing any undead minions to reach the floor.

One player needs to pull boss to start fight, rest of group stay at stairs. As soon as fight starts the mobs come down the stairs fast so be ready.

All the group ignore the boss and stand at the top of the stairs. Being at the top of the stairs means that the Crystal Handlers will be far enough away from boss when they run to you and you will be able to easily aggro all the undead mobs that spawn on the stairs.

Have your tank make sure no mobs get past and the dps use aoe to nuke everything on the stairs, the healer keep eye on whos taking most damage.

Once you have killed all the mobs on stairs and start phase 2 (when boss leaves the arcane field) you can all nuke and kill the boss without worrying of any more adds.
