Abuse the Ooze

Halls-of-Stone-Abuse-the-Ooze Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Sjonnir the Ironshaper and kill 5 Iron Sludges during the encounter.

You need to allow 2 Sludges to meet so they can then merge into an Iron Sludge.

Boss will start spawning Sludges at around 50% health so nuke him and other adds down, stop damage on boss at 50% to start getting enough Sludges to spawn and merge.

When you have waited for 2 Sludges to merge into 1 Iron Sludge you can kill the Iron Sludge, then repeat 4 more times.

After killing 5 Iron Sludges finish killing the boss.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.

Brann Spankin' New

Halls-of-Stone-Brann-Spankin-New-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat the Tribunal of Ages without allowing Brann Bronzebeard to take any damage.

When the adds spawn you need to avoid Brann taking any damage, he will be at the machine in the circle room so you will need distance between you and where they spawn.

A lot of player stay grouped on the stairs by the room, this gives them enough time to grab aggro and aoe the mobs down before they hit Brann. Also use slows, traps, stuns, basically anything that can help delay the mobs getting near Brann.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.

Good Grief

Halls-of-Stone-Good-Grief-Achievement

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.
