Story Achievements

Seized

Loquacious Orator – 1 AP

For this achievement you have to go through the trial dialogue multiple times and pick each option to fulfill the achievement. This may take a few more runs of the instance. Luckily you can just relog after finishing the trial to try again.

Dialogue 1

  • If it please the court, I’ll speak
  • This ‘creature’ is an associate of mine

Dialogue 2 & 3

  • Your Honor, did you have Gorrik examined?
    • Look at him? what’s that supposed to mean?
    • So you admit you have no medical proof that he’s infected or contagiuous
  • Your honor, Gorrik is working to prevent an outbreak
    • Its’s the Scarab plague
    • I can’t say any more, Your Honor

Requirements

  • Ask to speak (If it pleases the court, I’ll speak)
  • Defend your friend’s honor (This ‘creature is an associate of mine)
  • Find an error in the court’s process (Your Honor, did you have Gorrik examined?)
  • Explain the circumstances (Your Honor, Gorrik is working to PREVENT an outbreak)
  • Call out racial bias (‘”Look at him”? What’s that suppose to mean?)
  • Ask for proof (So you admit you have no medical proof that he’s infected or contagious)
  • Tell the truth (Its’s the Scarab Plague)
  • Ask for the councilor’s trust (I can’t say any more, Your Honor)

Squish, Squish

  • Require you to have completed the final instance Be My Guest first
  • Kill all the Scarabs in 30 seconds or less. The Scarab phase is right after Faren meets the guests from the ship. Make sure you are on a mount and you should have no trouble finishing it in 30 seconds.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-37

Stay Asleep, Sheep

  • Require you to have completed the final instance Be My Guest first
  • Keep Istari the Inexorable from Awakening your allies. During the fight with him from 100% to 50%, he may have a small breakbar if you don’t damage him quick enough. If this happens, break his breakbar ASAP to prevent him from awakening your allies.

Forearmed is Forewarned

Decimation – 1 AP

Kill 6 Awakened with a single bomb blast. Pretty easy to do as Canach actually does it for you when he throw bombs around.

Glory Hog – 1 AP

Plant seeds at all the locations before Canach has a chance to help. Canach plant at exactly three locations in sequential order . Go to these locations and plant the seeds before Canach and you should get the achievement pretty easily.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-38gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-39

Silent but Deadly – 3 AP

Never raise suspicion to the point that champions are deployed again you. Generally pretty easy to get. Just don’t get close to the champions inside the instance and you should get this achievement easily. If you get detected by anything, remember to use #1 skill to stop stun them and then #2 if necessary to kill.

Trip the Quantum Fantastic – 1 AP

Disorient 25 Awakened with the Quantum Mass Displacement Matrix. To do this you will need to use the #4 skill in rapid succession. Basically you want to run right in front of an awakened mob (make sure he detects you so move around a bit) and then immediately to his behind when he detects you. As soon as he turns to face you, immediately teleport to his behind again while staying as close to the Awakened as possible. Repeat as long your heat level allows; after a few teleports, the awakened will get disoriented and you will get the achievement pop up. You don’t have to do it to 25 different Awakened and can just pick the same one to do it over and over.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-41gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-40

A quicker way to do this is at the end during portal defense with multiple waves of Awakening attacking. You can pick a group of Awakened and spam the teleport in the middle of them to disorient multiple Awakened at once.

Be My Guest

Captive Audience – 1 AP

Listen to all of Joko’s taunts. To get this achievement,.you need to get hit by every laser trap in the Moon Fortress. Joko says a taunt each time you get hit by a laser. Use the signet ring to reveal the laser traps so you can be sure you get hit by every single one of them. This one is mutually exclusive with Dexterous and Flexible so you will need to do the instance twice.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-67

Dexterous and Flexible – 3 AP

Avoid every laser trap in the Moon Fortress. The best way to do this seems to be using a mesmer or thief with blink/shadowstep/jaunt. Make sure you use the signet ring to reveal the laser traps and then just use their blinks to get through. Beware of the four lasers in the room when you are fighting Beastmarshal as those still counts and if you get hit by those you fail the achievement as well.

Whistling in the Dark – 1 AP

Successfully defend Canach while he arms the bomb in under six minutes. This one is pretty easy to get. The timer starts only when Canach goes to the door and arm the bomb. You have plenty of time to defeat the Awakened waves before they reach Canach. There is a champion that spawns at the end of the waves.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-22

Debbie’s Cakes – 2 AP

You need to do this heart correctly to get cakes from Debbie. When you use the torch to burn the crops, only burn the diseased crops and not the regular crops. Turn off auto-attack so you don’t accidentally swing the torch and burn the good crops. If done correctly, you will be able to purchase cakes from Clan Marshal the heart vendor by Arkjok Farmlands after you complete the daily heart. You need to do this heart correctly 4 times for the achievement and the cake can be bought on multiple characters. If burning infected crops it is too tedious you can try mix in some rat meat to progress the heart. Beware that for each good crop you burn the number of cakes you get decreases with a maximum of 3 cake per character per day.

You basically need to do the Containing the Scarab Plague meta 10 times and loot the chests each time. To loot the chest you will need to consume the Access Card from killing the Champion Inquest that spawns after the Plague Golem.

With this buff, enter one of the rooms with red terminals marked on the map below and you will be teleported to inside the chest room. You can also get a mesmer to port you in if you don’t have an access card.

Thing That Wouldn’t Leave – 1 AP

Inside Research Vault Alpha, which you can access by pressing a panel from the outside (above and outside the Hollows on the same level of the POI), if you do the event to clear the Inquest Lab then stay in the lab after, wait for about a minute and you will be kicked out and granted the achievement.

If you cannot access Research Vault Alpha for some reason, you can try Research Vault Beta POI which is opened by the event Helping Researcher Emm track the origin point of the mutated rats and stay inside after the event.

gw2-ftt-100-achievements-guidegw2-ftt-100-achievements-guide-2

FTT 101-107 Core Turret Dynamics – 3 AP

This is more of a farming achievement. You will need to slaughter Awakened Inquest by the masses in Kourna until you collect all of the scraps in the collection as they are random drops off them. Once you completed the collection or parts of the collection for a specific type of turret, you can go back to Krew Leader Drazz and learn all types of field turrets. This will allow you to recconfigure the Inquest turrets to different types to fulfill the other FTT achievements.

Mastery Insights & Races

Mastery Insights

Allied Encampment Mastery Insight

Pretty straight forward. Just hop to the top of the tower with your springer.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-43gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-44

Bokoss Prison Ruins Mastery Insight

This Mastery Insight requires the Tier 2 Roller Beetle ability to break through walls to reach.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-47gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-48

Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight

This one is slightly tricky. You enter the tunnels through the eastern side and then look for some easy rocks you can hop on with your springer. As you progress higher, you will find a narrow passage you can’t get through by normal means. What you need to do here is to swap to a thinner mount (i.e. jackal) and use the dismount boost to boost you over the ledge past the narrow passage.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-53gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-54gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-55

Dunlon Springs Mastery Insight

Another straightforward Mastery Insight. Just springer hop your way and then drop down to the springs for this insight.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-51gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-52

Ntouka Pond Mastery Insight

Use the jackal portal at the location pointed by the arrow on the map below to get into the Pond area and then swim down to reach the Mastery Insight at the very bottom.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-45gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-46

Races

Roller Beetle Training – 2 AP

This map has the new Roller Beetle racing which rewards 2 AP for reaching the silver and gold ranks. Use spacebar to boost (remember your endurance recharges after passing through each checkpoint) and then use Mount ability 2 (I bound mine to V) to drift around tight corners.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-65

Griffon Expert – 2 AP

Griffon Expert is a short course with some tight turns but rather easy to get gold once you know the route.

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-66

Griffon Master – 2 AP

gw2-long-live-the-lich-achievements-guide-64

  • Dankening

    Dances with Cacti is actually achieved by becoming a choya to start the event, leaving choya form, standing on the center rock, and /dance-ing.

    • Thanks! I will update the guide

    • Jalen Dmello

      Lol an here i thought i had to synchronize my movements

  • Duck

    There’s also a hidden achievement, called Crab Kickin’. You have to find surly crabs northeast of the corsair heart, and kick the crab towards an awakened.

    • Maliha

      Ya I got that one tonight. It was beside me so I kicked it and got the achievement. :- )

  • Qrko

    There’s a way to actually spawn the legendary Broodmother. Next to mastery point in the underwater cave, there are “mysterious eggs”. Pick one and try to run with it 😉

    • Duck

      Do you get a achievement if you successfully take the egg and run away with it?

      • Qrko

        Nope, you spawn the mob for the achievement.

  • jtedi

    The FTT 100 Achievements set takes at least 700 spare parts to complete it all, and get all the upgrades to the turret

  • Rigaldo

    Trip the Quantum Fantastic – hint/tip save this achievement for when u get to the part of the story where you have to secure the area around the rift. Awaken will try to take circle in big groups. While they are grouped up zip around them with skill 4 – Stunning the whole group. Making this achievement quick and fast.

    • Riggs

      Another tip – this achievement seems to be triggered simply by teleporting directly on/around the location of the monster as fast as possible.

      The original description of the achievement made it sound like it was related to teleporting out of the white visibility cone.

      • jajaja

        This tip helps a lot!
        I keeps dying trying to teleport only when the enemy turn around. This makes the achievement much easier.

  • Ben Turner

    for Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight. instead of the jackal which i was unable to do, I used Mirage Sword Ambush to leap through the narrow space. worked first time. Possible other untargetted leaps might work.

  • Maliha

    Hey Dulfy, for the Tyrian Service Medal, Orr events, the results have not been consistent. We failed Temple of Balth (lost all morale and failed the event) and all got credited for the achieve. But while at Melandru, Priest spawned at Cathedral of Verdance (Melandru – Cursed Shore) and we successfully defended yet none of the 50 there of us got credit for the collection. We aren’t sure if it is RNG or specific quests but ppl are not getting credit for the achieve as listed. 🙁

  • Adam Safranek

    Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight

    Go to the top of the hill, get on your mount, Swoop (dive) down to get momentum and then use it to pull up to the mastery. Works like a charm.

  • Raizel

    I can’t interact with the panel to open Research Vault Alpha, why?

  • Alot

    They released chest piece? An actual legit piece of stuff you put on your chest.?Without an expansion? I think a dev was just fired -.-

    • Taiwan Wolf

      No, they are still following the “medium armor awkwardly covers the lower body unnecessarily” trend. They probably didn’t fire that troll Paul Ella or anyone else who intentionally designs bad armor at Anet..

  • The story line is a mess – why did they bother to release it.

    • minion_condi_necro

      At this point ive stopped paying attention to the story and just play for cosmetics. Their writing has been a mess ever since HoT released 😟

    • Kalavier

      I found this episode to be quite good, I don’t see why you think it’s a mess.

    • Matthew Adams

      Joko’s Contaminarium 4 skull puzzle? What the hell am I doing wrong?

    • pete

      I won’t call the storyline a mess this time. I mean, I have seen worse.

  • Xadirius

    For Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight you can also climb up on the vinewall to the south of the mastery point and use the griffon swoop and flap combo, fly into the cave and quickly pull up to reach the mastery.

  • Reavus

    for “Thing that Wouldn’t leave” you can also remain in Research Vault Beta. i stayed there as i couldn’t get in Alpha at the time and i still got the achievement.

  • ross oogo

    why anet make collection stuff related requiring event failure? any got the Naturalist’s Crest by any chance, if yes where, i was camping at part of wall that was broken for hours on east of the map but no event to repair,

  • Kasper Asmussen

    You can farm spare parts inside Forearmed is Forewarned by using skill 5 on turrets, it’s waaay faster than farming mobs.

    • Qrko

      You can drop 100 parts from mobs. That beats farming on turrets by a long shot

  • Taiwan Wolf

    they can’t even make duct tape armor correctly

  • Peter

    No, they are still following the “medium armor awkwardly covers the lower body unnecessarily” trend. They probably didn’t fire that troll Paul Ella or anyone else who intentionally designs bad armor at Anet..

  • Alex Manukhin

    Would be nice if you add that Squish,Squish and Stay Asleep, Sheep can be done only by character that finished the story and you don’t get achievement buffs if you would come with your second character with “fresh” story.

  • UltimateWarrior

    I can’t interact with the panel to open Research Vault Alpha, why?

  • evan

    I found this episode to be quite good, I don’t see why you think it’s a mess.

  • Mike

    for the ‘captive audience’ I don’t think that tripping on all lasers is enough. I think the achievement is awarded after you exhaust all of joko’s dialogues for tripping the lazers, the fire traps & ice traps. (went into the instance tripping every lazer, didn’t get the achievement, but next time i made sure to exhaust every dialogue for the fire & ice traps along with tripping every lazer just in case – got the achievement then)

    • a

      yeah, f*** that achievement

    • Jaz

      You have to trigger each kind of trap (laser, ice and fire trap) until theres no more text bubble pop-ups.

    • Bach

      yeah you have to do all for fire, ice and laser trap, then after the last corridor you have the room with the two guard dogs, after you kill them you get the achievement if you have gotten all the taunts from traps

  • For the “Dunlon Springs Mastery Insight” journey, there is a simpler way. At the level of the Elon Basin is a tunnel which allows to reach just by swimming the mastery.

    See the following capture to find the entry:
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0b9d4ea4debfd666a6d41fcb1f4ea9f4370d3ed8e55cbdaa267650deb27ed747.png

    • Sindariel

      There’s also a small gap in the rocks along the line of the underwater tunnel where you can slip through. Easy to reach with springer and griffon.

  • Damien 1.0

    There’s a way to actually spawn the legendary Broodmother. Next to mastery point in the underwater cave, there are “mysterious eggs”. Pick one and try to run with it 😉

    • Qrko

      Nice copypaste of my comment 🙂

  • Alex Manukhin

    You will need to slaughter Awakened Inquest by the masses in Kourna until you collect all of the scraps in the collection as they are random drops off them.

    I can swear that i’ve got few of those from normal non InquestAsura Awakened.

  • Nina

    they can’t even make duct tape armor correctly

  • Kalurth

    “Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight “for this one i made it with griffon so easly i jump down from vista to enterance gain speed with griffon spell and middle of the room upward to mastery

  • Matteo S

    for Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight. instead of the jackal which i was unable to do, I used Mirage Sword Ambush to leap through the narrow space. worked first time. Possible other untargetted leaps might work.

  • Zaire Kelly

    Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight – just use your griffon to dive in then pull up . simple

    • a

      not everyone has the griffon

      • But those who have can do that, it´s how I did it as well. Very nice fast trick. Those who don´t have a griffon can do any of the other options for example: Mirage Sword ambush (as mentioned earlier, only available to Mesmers) or Jackal dismount (only available if you own a jackal 😉 )

  • Zaire Kelly

    Honestly the map has ZERO beetle mount races unlike all the other maps but has several beetle timed trials(which aren’t races) or adventures if you wanna call em that. I think it would have been fun to race against your fellow player and watch them all uncontrolably veer off course. 😀

  • KJ

    I could never get passed the boss in Forearmed and Forewarned… “staying within the boundaries of the map”.

    Veer too far off to one side in the initial training? Zoned out…

    Oh cool! Your golem arm has teleporting capabilities! Let’s just hop up on this roof here. Zoned out…

    If any1 wants to do this mission for me, I’m on NA…

    • lemon lemon

      god i’m glad someone else pointed this out here, it was infuriating how close the boundaries were to some of the objectives. why give us a long-range teleport if you’re just gonna do that shit.

  • Elmex94

    There’s a way to actually spawn the legendary Broodmother. Next to mastery point in the underwater cave, there are “mysterious eggs”. Pick one and try to run with it 😉

  • pegon125

    for Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight. instead of the jackal which i was unable to do, I used Mirage Sword Ambush to leap through the narrow space. worked first time. Possible other untargetted leaps might work.

  • Matthew Adams

    Joko’s Contaminarium entry 4 skulls is it bugged. What the hell am I doing wrong?

    • Jason Martin

      click on signet ring to reveal the true puzzle wall to fix, that will get you through

  • asdfg

    It’s so annoying that ‘Squish, squish’ and ‘Stay asleep, sheep’, can only be done if you do the story again with the same character that has completed it! I mean, why would you do the story more than once with the same character!!! WTF Anet!!!

  • Raizel

    “This will allow you to recconfigure the Inquest turrets to different types to fulfill the other FTT achievements.”
    Each of those turret achievements require an absurd amount of spare parts, is it normal or am I doing something wrong?

    • Suan

      It is normal the whole achiv point is to make you farm like a madman.. or like a average Black Desert Online player. Just take your time, 3 months until next episode.

    For the “Whistling in the Dark” achievement, everything seemed to be going fine, then the champ appeared and Canach just stopped working and joined the fight. Lost the achievement after that.

    • Saillight

      Canach is supposed to join the fight

  • Xadirius

    The FTT 100 series achievements to build each basic turret 10 times, you can use the first one you get from Drazz and quickly switch between all the turret types, I was able to get it done in 2 FTT 100 units.
    For the upgrading you can do the same thing you just need 40 spare parts for each achievement (8 upgrades),
    For Exaple: Build basic direct damage > upgrade stage 2, Switch to Basic Aoe Damage > Upgrade Stage 2, then either go to the third turret type or back to the first (direct damage).
    Doing so I was able to get 2 types 8 times on one turret before it died though i needed 85 spare parts, 5 for the turret then 40 to switch each turret type.

      i just build one with deplymenmt kit and than keep chnaging turret type from 1 to 7 occasionally repaiuring the turrent with repair parts, now i am on [FTT201-407] and i have no idea how to progress further.

    • Raizel

      I’m short on spare parts, how can I get that many spare parts for those FTT achis?

    Debbie Cakes: So what, then, would be the ‘correct number of crops’ to burn to ensure I get 3 cakes, so I can burn the minimum required crops, and then complete the heart with rats and other events? 🙂

    • Sindariel

      I think the guide is wrong for this achivement.
      When buying the cake it states that you can buy it only 1 time per day per account. So you can’t do this with multiple characters.

      • Brandon M Chartrand

        you can do it on multiple characters in a single day.

      • Sty

        If you burn only the corrupted crops, you will get 3 cakes (per day, per character). If you burn some healthy ones, you only get 1.

  • pipann

    To add to the Captive Audience achievement, the fire and freeze traps also trigger dialogues and not ALL lasers have to be triggered. Basically, when you come up to a boobytrapped hallway, let yourself get hit as many times it takes for Joko to run out of dialogue options. But also make sure you don’t end any prematurely (i.e., by triggering a new dialog). Only once he has run out, you may continue.

  • Tito Rodrigo

    PPl linked the ascended backpiece yesterday morning, 3 days into the new content. How in the hell does one get 700 shards that quick?

    • Burn Bicz, BURN

      On wiki there are links for every items on GW2

      • Ares Zax

        Yep, I’d say that how they did it. They stockpiled a bunch of PvP/WvW potions, then just drank them all after they unlocked the reward track to complete it multiple times in quick succession.

  • caustic

    For Trip the Quantum Fantastic, as long as you’re within melee-ish range of an enemy, you can teleport 4 times in quick succession in the same spot and it’ll stun them. They don’t have to be facing you and you don’t have to be detected, you just have to be close enough. You can get the achievement faster if you do get detected a couple times and let them spawn some adds for you to stun since they’ll all be clumped up together and you stun everyone in range when you do the 4 teleports.

  • Void

    So the medal is for the same event 3 times? Pretty obvious there was supposed to be more to the Kourna meta and they pasted over quickly to shove the episode out.

    • bigbudcz

      there are 3 cannons, every on different location

  • cj44

    Update for the Captive Audience achievement – You don’t need to hit every single laser trap – you just have to trigger every laser trap dialogue until he points out you have a signet ring, do the math(s) – which can be done in the first laser corridor. Additionally, you need to trigger three separate dialogues (each) from the Fire and Ice traps, which can easily be done in the hall with both fire/ice and laser traps just before the 2 pups. Then the achievement will trigger when you kill the two pups.

  • Sty

    Just got the Naturalist’s Crest on the thorn wall defense event. I guess you don’t need this event to fail anymore to get the crest.

  • Ha Ha Ha

    You can now get the Naturalist’s Crest from the wall defense events. 🙂 There are also several places along the wall where the event spawns, not just the area shown in the guide so run up and down until you find one!

  • VOjta Šostok

    Trip the Quantum Fantastic – You are not suppose to jump around him to make him confused . But using that skill right on top of him will make him dizzy. It’s not you around him but the effect of that skill . Just spam skill 4 on him and you will be fine.Single one of the Awakened from the rest of his group. The best place for it is where they are not moving much. And then enjoy minutes of spaming Skill 4 😉

    • Andy

      i just have done it right at the front door of gandara, there is a whole army of awakened and if you port around until you left 1 port inside thier pizza´s you confuse a lot more of them in 1 time 🙂

  • Henry Tran

    Omg that medium jerkin is too cute, i need it now

  • Javier Patag

    Anyone know if dying to the burn/chill traps disqualifies you from Dexterous and Flexible? Let’s say you don’t ever trip a laser trap the whole time but the fire and/or ice trap kills you.

  • Javier Patag

    Finally got Dexterous and Flexible.
    NO, getting downed, dying, and restarting from a checkpoint will NOT disqualify you from that achievement.

  • JP

    Glory hog achievement is incorrect! there are 4 seeds u need to plant see this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT8WjEKn1AU

    • Batchie

      That’s correct, but Canach heads to those 3 spots, hence she didn’t show the fourth spot

  • Alot

    Its amusing being told to go kill the risen priest of Balthazaar a few weeks after you kill Balthazaar himself. Still trying to think of a way to break it to the lad.

  • C Weaver

    For Dabiji Hollows Mastery Insight, I couldn’t get Dulfy’s method with a jackal to work. I figured out how to do it with just a springer. Before that last jump with a jackal, above you is a crack. Back up a bit and use springer to jump up and get stuck in that crack. Then dismount and glide through the gap. Takes a little experimentation but I showed a dozen people how, everyone got it within a few tries.

  • Burn Bicz, BURN

    For Glory Hogmap is wrong!!!

  • MasterRye

    The Glody Hog Achievement has been changed from what your map shows (The entire eastern side of the map has been blocked off cause people used it to farm Spare parts)
