Mini guides for the more detailed Achievements.

I Ain't Even Cold

Must be on Mythic difficulty.

Defeat Ash’Golm while all party members are Fired Up.

To get the Fired Up debuff a player will need to absorb 5 lava pools.

A way of doing this is have the healer get 5 stacks first so they can then focus on healing, then 2 dps. By this point the adds will be getting too much so use Countermeasures (statue) to freeze entire room.

Use dps cooldowns to clear the room while everything is frozen. Now have the next dps get their 5 stacks, nuke boss to around 5% then stop and let the tank get 5 stacks.

The tank needs to get as last minute as possible because the Fired Up debuff will increase damage taken by 50%.

Once the boss is dead you should all get your achievement as long as you each have Fired Up on your character when you defeat the boss.

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

Who's Afraid of the Dark?

Must be on Mythic difficulty.

Defeat Cordana after successfully navigating Creeping Doom without holding Elune’s Light while she is in the air.

You will need to get through the gaps in the wall of spirits (Creeping Doom) without using the light to see it.

At 40% the boss will fly into the air and be protected, this is when she fires a volley of arrows that mark where the wall of spirits will spawn. If you watch the arrows there will be a gap in the volley.

To get this achievement to work no one can be holding the light when she casts Creeping Doom and you must not get hit by the wall of spirits.

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

A Specter, Illuminated

Must be on Mythic difficulty.

Illuminate and free the Specter of Vengeance.

After you have killed the final boss Cordana tank pick up the light, then other players go grab any lights remaining by the lift. Now take the lift back up to the previous rooms.

The 3 specters can be done in any order, pick one of the rooms to start and follow the spirit that appears who will lead you through.

The locations are below:

vault-of-the-wardens-a-specter-illuminated-map

East specter: Green pools grow from all corners of room, light carriers stand near to slow green pools. Kill this specter fast before gets cast off that spawns adds.
