The achievement itself is fairly simple; your aim is to have the boss kill 10 of his own adds with his own AOE ability. The boss casts Quake throughout the fight and each time Quake hits a player and damages them, an add spawns. At 66% and 33% he casts his AOE ability so you basically get 5 adds to spawn, push him to 66% health, wait for him to kill them and start the cycle again for the next 5 and going to 33%.
The only difficulty I was having soloing this ach is that he spawns 1 add per person hit by quake and the adds despawn after 2 mins, so the timing of getting all 5 to spawn and still be up for him to cast his AOE was really tight and there were a few attempts where I’d have an add despawn right before the AOE went off. Super frustrating.
I ended up asking Navi to come along and be an extra body to be hit by Quake to spawn the adds twice as fast and take away any issues with timers and despawning. She really kindly agreed to come be the equivalent of a punching bag for the boss and the ach became really easy.
It ended up being a naked run to make sure we took damage from quake and so he wasn’t damaged too much to push him through the phases too fast.
And the best part of finishing off the achievement is the Volcanic Stone Drake as the reward. He’s a pretty cute mount and I love his colours.
As a side bonus, in the same dungeon I also got exalted with Dragonmaw Clan which puts Z at 42/50 for the next reputation achievement.
Big big thanks to Navi for helping out on the achievement xx
