  • Assign players to areas around the room to watch and click the Glow Bugs.
  • If someone Squishes one have them call it out (type 1 in raid chat).
  • Blizzard achievement tracking doesn’t work.

Webbing Crashers – Elerethe Renferal

Defeat Elerethe Renferal in The Emerald Nightmare after destroying all her Pulsing Egg Sacs during the encounter on Normal difficulty or higher.

  • Everyone tap the boss at least once so you’ll get credit.

    1. 4 of them are on small platforms below the bridges and 3 are only reachable with the wings buff from the transition phase or demon hunter Glide.
    2. 2 of them are on the bridges.
    3. 1 of them is behind the boss on the first platform.
  • Players who get the eggs on the lower platforms will be stuck there the rest of the fight.
  • If someone misses a platform you can wait and transition her again to get new wings.
  • The achievement will turn from red to white when you can kill the boss.

  3. After 20+ have spawned gather then under the eye (Typhoon or Gorefiend’s Grasp helps) and nuke all down within 10 seconds.

Imagined Dragons World Tour – Ysondre

Defeat Ysondre in The Emerald Nightmare while all members of the raid have Dream Essences from all four gateway locations on Normal difficulty or higher.

  • There are 4 portals around the room with orbs inside that you need to run through to get a buff.
    1. Each portal has 1 buff.
    2. Everyone must get all 4 buffs.
    3. If you get the buffs and then die, it will still count (Priests perhaps not).
    4. The orbs will disappear for a second after someone runs through it, so make sure you have actually gotten the buff.
    5. WeakAura to see who is missing the buffs:
  • Split your raid into 2 groups to get the buffs as efficiently as possible:
    1. 3 tanks, extra healer or 2.
    2. Group 1 = 1 tank, a couple healers and a few ranged DPS; Group 2 = Every one else.
    3. Group 1 will stay out and tank the dragons together while the ranged kill add spawns and the healers keep everyone alive through the inevitable stuns.
    4. Group 2 will mount up before the pull and run into all of the portals to get their buffs.
    5. Once Group 2 has their buffs the Group 2 tanks will split the bosses and Group 1 will go get their buffs.
  • Wait to kill the bosses until all players have the buffs.

Use the Force(s) – Cenarius

Defeat Cenarius without cleansing each of the following Forces of Nightmare in The Emerald Nightmare on Normal difficulty or higher.

  • Personal achievement.
  • From progression most players will have the everything except for the Wisps credited already.
  • Have the raid leave the corner you need credit for alone (ie. do not stand in the corner the Wisps spawn in) so that that section is not cleansed by Cenarius.


I Attack the Darkness – Xavius

Defeat a Creature in the Dark during each of phase of the encounter with Xavius in The Emerald Nightmare on Normal difficulty or higher.

  • Demon Hunter required.
  • You must kill a Creature of Madness during all 3 phases:
    1. Phase 1 = 100-65%
    2. Phase 2 = 65-30%
    3. Phase 3 = 30-0%
  • Creature of Madness
    1. Need to use Spectral Sight to see them.
    2. They spawn around the outside of the room stealthed and patrol around.
    3. They do not spawn in the same place each time.
    4. They have to be body pulled, Glaive Throw will probably not work (according to recent Wowhead comments), so the Demon Hunter will need some movement speed increases.

The Nighthold

Cage Rematch – Skorpyron

Defeat Skorpyron in The Nighthold on Normal difficulty or higher without any player leaving the center rings.

  • Stay inside the dark blue circle, if you go outside of the light grey one you fail.
  • Stand behind a crystal so you don’t get knocked back.
  • When crystals spawn they knock you back, so don’t be standing at the edge.
  • If someone dies their body will get knocked back by Shockwave and count as a fail.
  • Achievement takes a few second to activate at start of the fight.
  • Track the achievement to see if you fail.

Grand Opening – Chronomatic Anomaly

Activate all the spotlights around the Nightwell and then defeat the Chronomatic Anomaly in The Nighthold, on Normal difficulty or higher.

Hotfix on May 22, 2017 changed the requirement to 8 spotlights (was 12).  Might be possible now on Normal, but not yet confirmed.

  • Must be done on Heroic.
  • Bring some extra healers.
  • Players with Time Bomb need to stand on blue circles on the floor.
  • When Time Bomb goes off it will activate a faint white beam (spotlight) from the blue circle on the floor.
  • All 12 spotlights must be activated.
  • The boss will not cast Time Bomb while channeling, so you have to do the normal mechanics (kill adds quickly) for all the  Time Bombs you need to spawn.
  • The last Time Bomb or two do not go out until around his enrage timer (~6:30).
  • You will probably need the last person with Time Bomb to die and the boss to also die very quickly thereafter.
  • We completed it because our Retribution paladin and Brewmaster monk survived his enrage and killed him.
  1. Light the spotlights in an orderly fashion around the room.
  2. Take the boss’s health down low.
  3. When the last Time Bombs go out, stack on top of them and stop healing so they die from the orbs that drop.

The debuff has some side effects:

  • Puke and get stunned for 1 second.
  • Take damage and fly a couple of yards.
  • A hallucination with 1 healt will spawn and hit you. Sometimes you can’t even see them, but then you need to use detection spells, such as flare, demon hunter sight, etc. It also puts the entire raid in combat.
