Chaos Theory

The-Nexus-Chaos-Theory

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Anomalus without destroying any Chaotic Rifts.

Boss will make Rifts at 75%, 50%, and 25% health.

Tank should kite boss backwards around 20 yards and have the group stand away from and behind the tank. This is so that the lightning from the Rifts will only damage the tank.

While the Rifts are up all dps should focus kill the adds nearby.

When Rift phases end tank should start kiting boss backwards again around 20 yards, and try dps boss as much as possible while hes being kited away from the previous Rifts.

Repeat the steps and you should get the achievement. You can kite the boss away from the platform and around the dungeon just make sure before you pulled boss that you cleared any trash that might be in the way.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.

Intense Cold

The-Nexus-Intense-Cold

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Keristrasza without allowing Intense Cold to reach more than two stacks.

To avoid getting 3 stacks of Intense Cold you need to keep moving, you will only have around 4 seconds before you will need to move again, a lot of players jump instead of moving.

Try use short cast time spells around 2 seconds. Crystal Chains holds players in place and will fail you the achievement so use spells such as mages Blink.

If your character has nothing buy some Free Action Potion or Living Action Potion items (they make you immune to stun and movement impairing effects).

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.

Split Personality

The-Nexus-Split-Personality

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Grand Magus Telestra after having killed her images within 5 seconds of the first one dying during each split.

Since you need to kill all the images within 5 seconds of killing the first one it is helpful to dps the images health lower and then aoe them all together. You need to take away enough health so that you know you can kill them all within the 5 seconds.

Or you can nuke the boss before she reaches the split phase.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.
