Achievements

Mini guides for the more detailed Achievements.

A Void Dance

Violet-Hold-A-Void-Dance-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Zuramat the Obliterator without killing any void sentries.

This can be done if your whole group concentrates on nuking the boss as soon as appears, use any damage increases such as Bloodlust/Heroism.

Make sure not to damage the void sentries too much as you don’t want to accidently kill them, use single target spells on boss.

Dispel/Purge Shroud of Darkness if healer having problems with healing.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.

Defenseless

Violet-Hold-Defenseless-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Cyanigosa without using Defense Control Crystals and with Prison Seal Integrity at 100%.

If you have a decent group you could easily get this achievement without any extra work. You need to finish the dungeon with the Prison Seal at 100% and no one click the defence crystals.

Just watch the groups of mobs that run for the door, use aoe abilties to pull them towards you instead.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.

Dehydration

Violet-Hold-Dehydraton-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Ichoron without allowing any Ichor Globules to merge.

You need to have someone ready to use the activation crystals found on the walls.

Violet-Hold-Dehydraton-Activation-Crystals

Make sure the player getting ready to click the activation crystal has their back facing a crystal so when the boss uses the knockback you will be pushed into range of it.

Have a player click the activation crystal (one near the boss) when his protective bubble shatters and this should kill any Ichor Globules up.

To get his protective bubble to shatter dps the boss down a little.

Then have the spare dps kill the water elementals before they reach your spot, then move to a new crystal ready for when boss appears, repeat until he is dead.

If you fail killing the Globules or an elemental reaches you wipe and reset fight (it will still be this boss that gets released again).

You won’t always get this boss to appear for the heroic fight so you might have to try a few days until you get to fight Ichoron.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Hero’.
