Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Forgemaster Garfrost before any player gets 11 stacks of Permafrost.

Make sure to track the stacks and keep out of bosses line of sight when possible.

Don't Look Up

Pit-of-Saron-Icicles-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Clear the hallway before Scourgelord Tyrannus without anyone taking icicle damage on the first try.

As long as your whole party avoids all the falling icicles you will get the achievement.

You can see where they are about to land and you will have a few seconds to move out.

A way to deal with trash is to pull all on way to middle of tunnel and aoe down on the metal platform. Once all dead continue through tunnel and pull rest of trash to the end and aoe those down.

You will get the achievement when all the trash from in the tunnel are dead.
