Mini guides for the more detailed Achievements.

Helheim Hath No Fury

Must be on Mythic difficulty.

You need to rescue the Captured Val’kyr. The Val’kyr is found on the ship next to 2nd boss Harbaron.

As soon as you get on the ship and are inside the cages you will see ‘Harbaron begins to drain the soul of the Captured Val’kyr.’ From here you will have 3 minutes & 30 seconds to kill the 2nd boss & save the Val’kyr.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Legion Hero’.

Instant Karma

Must be on Mythic difficulty.

You need to defeat 1st boss Ymiron, the Fallen King after defiantly striking down 6 Risen Warriors.

Just before the boss is a trash pack with Seacursed Soulkeeper, kill the others and keep this mob alive.

Once ready pull the boss with the Seacursed Soulkeeper alive, to get Risen Warriors to spawn during fight players must not run over any Essences of Bane (purple ghosts).

Avoid the Essences of Banes and they will turn into Risen Warriors. Once you have 6 or more get the tank to taunt the Risen Warriors & the Seacursed Soulkeeper.

The Seacursed Soulkeeper will use his cleave ‘Defiant Strike’, this should kill the Risen Warriors. Once you are sure 6 Risen Warriors have been killed by the strike then nuke the boss to get the achievement.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Legion Hero’.

Poor Unfortunate Souls

Must be on Mythic difficulty.

You need to defeat final boss Helya while the whole group are Poor Unfortunate Souls.

To get the Poor Unfortunate Souls buff you will need to go to Heroic Blackrook Hold. Once in the first room of dungeon you should see a blue candle, click it and your whole group will gain a 30 minute buff.

If anyone dies you will have to reset and try again as the buff will disappear. Once you kill the final boss Lord Kur’talos Ravencrest you will gain a new 10 minute buff.

Seems a lot of players stand outside Maw of Souls entrance and queue for Heroic Blackrook Hold. That way when you complete the dungeon you will be ported back in front of Maw of Souls ready to run in with your group.

Once your group is inside Mythic Maw of Souls kill the trash and defeat the 1st boss Ymiron, this will give you a 15 minute buff.

Next kill the trash on the way to 2nd boss Harbaron, this will give you the buff Poor Unfortunate Souls.

On the way to mini boss and final boss Helya take your time with trash packs and interrupt the fear Bone Chilling Scream so you don’t pull others.

Your group has to kill the final boss Helya with the buff, if anyone dies during this dungeon you will lose the buff and fail the achievement.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Legion Hero’.
