To complete Looking for Dungeon (LFD) you need to ‘Defeat Wing Leader Ner’onok’.

Avoid standing in any Sap Puddles, they appear as orange puddles that flow out of the walls. If you get caught in any it will slow your movement speed by 80%.

Speak with the panda Yang Ironclaw to start fight with Commander Vo’jak (2nd boss). Throw Mantid Tar Kegs at the mobs from top of steps, if they run through the orange tar they get stacks of Caustic Tar. This increases the damage the mobs & boss take as it stacks.

After the door is blown you can take a small shortcut through Forward Assault Camp. Most groups i have been in kill the first pack by the door, then go immediately left around the side of the tree root.

Defeat Ner’onok while under the effect of Tenwu’s Resolve.

When boss casts the first Gusting Winds you need to take a running jump to the broken platform so the wind will push you towards Tenwu.

Defeat Commander Vo’jak after having killed the Sik’thik Amberwing.

While the adds spawn and you throw the Caustic Tar at them below, you need to keep an eye out for Sik’thik Amberwing.

The Sik’thik Amberwing hovers above your platform, when you see it you must kill it before the boss appears and it flys off (if it flys off you cannot get the achievement).

You will have at least 3-4 attempts to kill the Sik’thik Amberwing as it comes flys in and out.
