Below is a guide to all the achievements related to the RIFT Storm Legion Dungeon, Archive of Flesh. You can view these achievements in-game under Achievements (default key “h“) -> Dungeons -> Archive of Flesh.

Having trouble with a boss or want more information on a particular ability? You can find a detailed guide to each boss including abilities and strategies below:

Tzuls Out For Summer

Objective:

Defeat Tzul in under 2 minutes.

Strategy:

Tzul is the first boss of Archive of Flesh. This is a relatively simple achieve to obtain with decent DPS.

However, the tank needs to make sure to tank the boss properly so that Tzul gets hit by Bone Shrapnel (the shrapnel that bursts from the walls of the encounter indicated by a red AoE). When Tzul gets hit by Bone Shrapnel he will lose stacks of his incoming damage reduction buff and eventually he will begin to take more and more damage from the players.

Without doing this properly, your party’s DPS will be too low to complete this achievement.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Shrapnull

Objective:

Defeat Tzul without any group member being hit by Bone Shrapnel.

Strategy:

Bone Shrapnel is the red AoE attack that shoots out from the walls. In order to dodge this ability you need to be on the other side of the bridge from where the red pulsing AoE is at.

At some point in the fight, Tzul will cast “Wall of Infinite Agony” which is a large purple AoE. Once the cast ends, Bone Shrapnel will switch walls to the other side.

To be 100% sure you don’t get hit by Bone Shrapnel, stay at the ranged location for the first part of the fight and then switch positions after Wall of Infinite Agony finishes casting.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Hunger Game

Objective:

Defeat Vorka without him getting more than 10 stacks of Gorged.

Strategy:

Vorka is the 2nd boss of the Archive of Flesh dungeon. Gorged is a stacking buff that he gains whilst eating the Frightened Experiment add that spawns throughout the dungeon.

Make sure that all party members immediately switches to the add, Frightened Experiment, and DPS it down asap whenever it spawns so that Vorka doesn’t get more than 10 stacks of the Gorged buff.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Bile Denial

Objective:

Defeat Vorka without anyone being hit by Degenerative Fluid.

Strategy:

Degenerative Fluid is an AoE ability that is released if a person takes too long to press an active Lever during the encounter.

During the encounter, one of 4 Levers at random will become interactable and a green AoE will appear. Clicking on it shuts off the lever and prevents Degenerative Fluid AoE from hitting the players. Take too long and it will begin to spew.

In most cases this achieve will be obtained automatically unless there’s a player who doesn’t know the mechanics of the fight. Be sure to indicate you wish to complete this achievement before the encounter starts and explain the Lever mechanic to anyone who is new to the fight.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Don’t Get Handsy

Objective:

Defeat Cahail without anyone being hit by Frenzied Embrace.

Strategy:

Animator Cahail is the 4th boss of the Archive of Flesh dungeon. Frenzied Embrace is the damage from the various AoE that spawns throughout the encounter.

You will need to communicate with your party members that you wish to do this achieve.

Archive of Flesh Animator Cahail 2

A few things to note:

  • Staying in the middle of the encounter when it doesn’t have an AoE is a good idea as it will give you less distance to get to the next safe area when the AoEs change locations.
  • The healer needs to ensure they cleanse players ASAP after Cahail uses Reform Anatomy because Reform Anatomy will place a snare on a random player and everyone close to them.
  • You can use Break Free to remove the snare. Of course given the ability’s long CD you will likely only be able to use this once in an encounter. Make it count!
  • Use Comfortable Insoles (runspeed enchant) on your boots and Tempest Mirrors (runspeed consume).
  • If you can, use a spec that has runspeed boost abilities. (i.e. Cleric’s Inquisitor has Judicial Privilege which increases runspeed by 50%).

Also be warned Frenzied Embrace’s damage area is slightly larger than the graphic indicator. Don’t take any chances standing on the edge of the AoEs because you are likely to get hit!

This achievement is hard enough to obtain that you should make sure you take trusted party members who will alert the party if they get hit (so you can wipe and try again). Prepare to force-wipe several times on this fight before you finally get it. A random queue group is not advised for this achievement.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

It’s Cahailing Men

Objective:

Defeat Cahail while 4 Horrific Constructs remain.

Strategy:

Animator Cahail is the 4th boss of the Archive of Flesh dungeon. He will spawn Horrific Constructs throughout the fight. You will need to keep 4 of them up prior to killing him.

You will need to communicate with your party members prior to beginning this encounter for this achieve. The lower Cahail’s HP is, the more areas of the map will be covered in damaging AoE. As such, you should make sure to wait for him to spawn 4 Horrific Constructs before DPSing him down too low.

Other things to note:

  • Players should only Single Target Cahail. Be aware of Single Target Macros that may include AoE abilities.
  • To help the healer keep the tank alive, make sure to interrupt “Monstrous Remodeling”. Failure to interrupt this ability will temporarily make all the Horrific Construct adds deal more damage which may prove difficult for the tank and healer when 4 of them are up.
  • If a player has a pet, make sure it doesn’t use its AoE abilities.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Spray and Prey

Objective:

Defeat Ahzrius after killing 20 Children of Ahzrius using Genetic Alteration.

Strategy:

Ahzirus is the last boss of Archive of Flesh. The Children of Ahzrius are the adds that spawn throughout the encounter. Genetic Alteration is the green cone ‘vomit’ AoE that a random player receives.

Archive of Flesh Ahzrius 3

The Genetic Alteration AoE is placed on a random player and shortly afterwards they will become stunned and start spewing in the direction of the AoE. Any Children of Ahzrius adds that are inside the AoE will die.

For this fight, communicate with party members before hand that you wish to complete this achieve and tell them not to DPS the adds but instead aim the Genetic Alteration AoE at the adds.

Note that when you kill an add it will drop a slowly moving AoE that deals damage to anyone inside.

For the smoothest completion of this achieve, the tank should tank a large bunch of adds and make sure nobody uses AoE and the tank uses minimal AoE to keep adds on him. It is best to have a person use Genetic Alteration on those adds right after Ahzrius finishes casting Drastic Renovations so the Tank has plenty of time to move Ahzrius well away from the mass of AoEs that drop after the adds die before the next Drastic Renovation is cast.

This is important because the Drastic Renovation run-in mechanic will cause issues if party members have to run into a whole heap of AoE dropped by dead adds.

Rinse and Repeat until you have 20 Children of Ahzrius killed. Someone will need to count, and it may be prudent to add 2-3 kills just to be sure that none of the adds were killed by dps instead of Genetic Alteration.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Mutelated

Objective:

Defeat Ahzrius without allowing him to cast Wave of Mutilation.

Strategy:

Ahzrius is the last boss of Archive of Flesh. He casts Wave of Mutilation whenever he reaches 4 stacks of Morphic Wave buff.

Archive of Flesh Ahzrius 1

He adds one stack of Morphic Wave each time he successfully casts Morphic Wave. The stacks are removed when you successfully interrupt a Morphic Wave cast.

To make this achieve easier, coordinate with your Tank and DPS/Support to interrupt Morphic Wave at between 2 and 3 stacks.

It is possible to solo interrupt Ahzrius if you interrupt him whilst he is casting his 4th Morphic Wave whilst having 3 stacks up. However there is a risk that his ability queue will end up allowing him to shove in 4 stacks after you interrupt him whilst your interrupt ability is on CD so it is best to have at least one other person alternating interrupts.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Archive of Nightmares

Objective:

Purge the Sinister Presence from Expert: Archive of Flesh.

Strategy:

Archive of Flesh Sinister Presence Location

The Tormented Horror add spawns after the third boss, Emphalea, dies. He appears on the bridge where you fight the first boss, Tzul right above the entrance to the encounter.

Killing the Tormented Horror add will spawn the Sinister Presence. Killing the Sinister Presence will complete this achieve.
