Maelow’s Breakup

Objective:

Defeat Swindler Maelow in the Realm of Twisted Dreams.

Strategy:

Defeat Swindler Maelow (1st boss) in Realm of Twisted Dreams. A guide and strategy to the boss encounter can be found below:

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

Disattached Fae

Objective:

In Realm of Twisted Dreams defeat Swindler Maelow while not allowing him to obtain more than 6 stacks of Reckless Fury.

Strategy:

Reckless Fury is a channel that one of Swindler Maelow’s adds, Lifeward Brae casts. Lifeward Brae is the add that spawns in the middle-left of the room, on the ground.

In order to make sure that Swindler Maelow does not reach more than 6 stacks of Reckless Fury, you need to prioritize killing Lifeward Brae whenever she spawns.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Waltz in the Park

Objective:

In Realm of Twisted Dreams defeat Swindler Maelow while not taking any damage from Poisonous Pollen, Flash Bomb, Nightmare Ring, and Ricochet Axe.

Strategy:

Swindler Maelow (first boss) does a variety of abilities and you need to dodge all of them to get this achieve.

  • Poisonous Pollen – this is the expanding plant AoE that spawns at random locations. Make sure to stay well out of the AoE/white-ring-indicator of these plants to avoid taking damage from them.
  • Flash Bomb – Flash Bomb is cast by Swindler Maelow throughout the encounter. He will tell you to look at him or not turn your back on him – face away from the boss by the time the cast ends to dodge this mechanic.
  • Nightmare Ring – Nightmare Ring is the blue ring that one of Swindler Maelow’s adds, Lifeward Brae, casts. Run out of the ring and make sure not to touch any part of it at any time to dodge this mechanic. It is best to be a fair distance away from Swindler Maelow as the Nightmare Ring is cast at his location.
  • Ricochet Axe – This is cast by Swindler Maelow and is an interruptible cast. You must make sure to interrupt this or else you will be hit by it. He will cast this several times throughout the fight.

If you are not ranged DPS, you will need to co-ordinate with other players to interrupt Ricochet Axe. Other than that, the rest is personal achieve.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Hungry, Hungry Greenscale

Objective:

Defeat Twisted Greenscale in the Realm of Twisted Dreams.

Strategy:

Defeat Twisted Lord Greenscale (2nd boss) in Realm of Twisted Dreams. A guide and strategy to the boss encounter can be found below:

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

The Perfect Dish

Objective:

In Realm of Twisted Dreams become Roasted, Seasoned and Tenderized by Twisted Greenscale without dying.

Strategy:

Twisted Lord Greenscale is the 2nd boss in Realm of Twisted Dreams. You basically need to get hit by almost all of his abilities:

  • Roasted – to become Roasted you need to stand in front of Twisted Lord Greenscale when he is using his Roast ability (fire breath cone in front of him). Just take one tick and run back to safety at his side.
  • Seasoned – This involves standing in his Seasoned AoE that he casts at the location of a random player. Just run over it to get Seasoned, but make sure your healer cleanses it off you after getting a tick of damage because it can become overwhelming for low-geared healers.
  • Tenderized – This is his tail-swipe. If you stand behind Greenscale you will get hit by this ability. Be extra careful as it hits for a lot of damage and knocks you back, making it hard to run back to safety at Greenscale’s sides.

It is best to get hit by Tenderized first by being slightly behind him and running back to safety at Greenscale’s sides asap. Next get hit by Seasoned, then Roasted. The reason for this is that taking damage from Roasted will decrease your incoming heals, Seasoned will put a dot on you (that can be cleansed) and Tenderized does a large amount of damage (you usually won’t survive more than one hit).

Co-ordinate with your healer so you can stay alive. If the healer has a death-prevention ability like Cleric Sentinel’s Vigilance, or a large shield they can put on you – that can help. Cleric Purifier shield + Latent Blaze can help you stay alive.

Reward:

15 Achievement Points.

Ascended A La Carte

Objective:

In Realm of Twisted Dreams defeat Twisted Greenscale without kicking a Roasted Luggo.

Strategy:

This simply involves not being anywhere near any of the Roasted Luggo adds that located throughout the encounter Twisted Lord Greenscale (2nd boss) encounter. Just keep your eyes out for them and avoid going near them or else you’ll end up kicking them.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Short Order Cook

Objective:

Defeat Twisted Greenscale in the Realm of Twisted Dreams without ever allowing him to become Ravenous.

Strategy:

Strangely Twisted Lord Greenscale never seems to become Ravenous.

There’s two theories though; either:

  1. He becomes Ravenous when a player is Roasted, Tenderized and Seasoned (refer to “The Perfect Dish” achieve above) and therefore you can’t do this achieve and “The Perfect Dish” at the same time; or
  2. He becomes Ravenous if his ‘Feast’ ability hits a Roasted Luggo add that is randomly moving around the encounter.

Unless you are aiming for “The Perfect Dish” achievement or there happens to be a Roasted Luggo where your Tank is, you should be able to gain this achieve naturally.

[We’ll update this section when more testing is done to confirm the requirements for him gaining Ravenous.]

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

State of Atrophy

Objective:

In Realm of Twisted Dreams defeat Atrophinius.

Strategy:

Defeat Grandmaster Atrophinius (3rd boss) in Realm of Twisted Dreams. A guide and strategy to the boss encounter can be found below:

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

Need For Mead

Objective:

Drink 15 Dreamshine Brews then defeat Atrophinius.

Strategy:

This involves going over the drink AoEs on the ground that Atrophinius (3rd boss) spawns every now and then 15 times.

Note that if you have 5 stacks of the buff you get when you pick up Dreamshine Brew, you will become stunned for a few seconds. This can prove deadly if there’s a lot of AoE being thrown around by the adds. However if you kill the adds properly you won’t have to worry about this.

Once you hit 5 stacks and come out of the stun you will be back to 0 stacks so you can pick up another 5 stacks.

You will need to inform the party that you want to do this achieve as you may need to slow down DPS so Atrophinius has enough time to spawn three rounds of drink AoEs.

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

Draught Dodger

Objective:

All party members must avoid all Flasks of Dreamshine thrown by Twisted Rabblerousers then defeat Atrophinius.

Strategy:

This involves avoiding the large Purple AoEs that Twisted Rabblerousers (the adds dancing on top of the three Kegs in the encounter) throw during the Atrophinius (3rd boss) encounter.

The easiest way to do this is pay attention, have some runspeed buffs/consumes and to make sure that if someone gets the Last Call buff, they hide behind a Keg that has an add on top (to kill the add).

It’s important to make sure everyone in the party is paying attention to which Kegs have adds on top in order to reduce the amount of Flasks of Dreamshine that is thrown at any one time, increasing the chance your whole party will be able to avoid all Flasks of Dreamshine.

When moving out of an AoE, don’t backpedal – strafe or run forward.

Reward:

5 Achievement Points

Chill Out

Objective:

In Realm of Twisted Dreams defeat Frozen Terror.

Strategy:

Defeat Frozen Terror (4th boss) in Realm of Twisted Dreams. A guide and strategy to the boss encounter can be found below:

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

Made It Rain

Objective:

In Realm of Twisted Dreams defeat the Frozen Terror without anyone being hit by Frozen Rain.

Strategy:

Frozen Rain are the red AoE circles that randomly pop up at random locations throughout the Frozen Terror (4th boss) encounter. It is fairly easy to avoid these.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

The Cold Shoulder

Objective:

In Realm of Twisted Dreams defeat the Frozen Terror without any of the Bonfired being destroyed by Thermal Dissipation.

Strategy:

Thermal Dissipation is cast by Frozen Terror (4th boss) in the following pattern:

  1. Casts Cold Snap (interruptable cast)
  2. Casts Flash Freeze (freeze random player)
  3. Casts Hoary Blast (ice breath on random player’s location)
  4. Casts Cold Snap.
  5. Approx 10 seconds later, casts Thermal Dissipation.
  6. Casts Cold Snap
  7. Casts Flash Freeze
  8. Casts Hoary Blast
  9. Casts Cold Snap
  10. Casts Flash Freeze
  11. Casts Cold Snap
  12. Casts Thermal Dissipation immediately after Cold Snap.

What you want the Tank to do is move Frozen Terror well away from the Bonfire (move him almost out of range of Ranged DPS) from 0-5 seconds after Cold Snap happens at #4. The longer you wait the more DPS your party will be able to do to the boss, but the closer to him casting Thermal Dissipation.

Once the Flash Freeze occurs at #10 you want the Tank to move Frozen Terror away from the Bonfire – but make sure to have an interrupt ready for Cold Snap (so your raid doesn’t die). Thermal Dissipation will occur right after Cold Snap.

To be 100% safe, you can move Frozen Terror out earlier once he finishes Cold Snap at #9.

Reward:

15 Achievement Points.
