All or Nothing

Author Notes

The achievements are fairly straight forward for this episode. There are two meta events that spawns every 2 hours in the north and south of the map. They cycle between which one is active. Each meta event rewards a unique daily items, which you can also buy from the traiding post. You will see need plenty of Branded Mass, along with completing these events to do the achievements.

There are quite a few achievement tied to the weapon crafting in this episode. These achievements will remain hidden until you complete a weapon and buy the related story book. From there each weapon has a Chasing Tales achievement that you need to complete a series of deeds for, This is extremely time-consuming so be prepared for the long haul.

Keep in mind that you can earn up to 20 Branded mass a day per character from doing the map hearts.

Scion & Champion

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideLord of the Ley Dance
Avoid all ley-hazard damage during the first trial.

During the first trial you will need to step close to Aurene. During this phase you will see a series of triangle AoEs rotating her. Avoid these AoE’s to earn the achievement. There are three phases that vary in difficulty so make sure you dodge and step carefully during the trial.

Aurene will also knock you back periodically if her health is too low so tread carefully. Her health will fill if you manage to stay within the channeling circle long enough.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuidePower Player
Charge three crystals with the magic of veteran branded foes.

Throughout the second trial veteran enemies will spawn. Your goal here is to kill at least one veteran enemy on each crystal. It doesn’t need to be the last kill, but at least one veteran must die on each crystal.

Veteran enemies only spawn once a crystal has been partly charged by killing the other branded on top of the crystal. Carefully kill them 1 by 1 to ensure you don’t make a mistake.

Once a Veteran branded does spawn, make sure you focus and kill it before any other enemy. This can be a little tricky so take your time.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideBranded-on-a-Stick
Pierce four or more Branded with a single use of the Dragonsblood spear.

After collecting the spear enemies will spawn behind you. Aggro all of these enemies and pull them together into a group. Once you have 4 or more target one of the enemies and use your special action key to throw a spear at them. If you hit enough enemies this will unlock.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideTrial by fire
Avoid getting hit by Branded Aurene’s breath attack.

Save all the mobility you have during this fight. Try not to waste dodges and use any form of shadow step or leaps you have. This attack happens throughout the fight, so avoid all the AoEs you possibly can. There are a couple of attacks don’t void this, but be wary and keep your distance if you can.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideConquer Your Fears
Execute a powerful and cooperative strike on Branded Aurene with Aurene.

During the fight you have the ability to use your spear attack (special action). Doing so will deplete the defiance bar. As soon as the defiance bar is broken, the skill will change if you’re close enough to the Branded Aurene. Use the skill to leap forward and attack. If you combo the attack correctly with Aurene you will complete the requirements.

You have a very small window to do this, so pay close attention to when the branded clone becomes stunned.


The Crystal Blooms

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideBunker Buster
Bear witness to a demonstration of Aurene’s power.

After the rift opens and the Riftstalker has spawned. Push the fight until Aurene gathers near the crystal. Once this happens head over and use your Resonating Blast skill (special action) in the marked spot. If you hit enough enemies you will earn the achievement. You may have to do this in multiple instances.


The Crystal Dragon

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideAppropriately Hyped
Hype up a Pact soldier, but don’t push it too far.
After entering the instance, follow the path until you come to the food stand with the chef. In front of the stand you will find Pact Soldier Varren. Speak with him and follow the dialog below:
  • Something the matter, soldier?
    • I hear you. But don’t forget all the challenges we’ve overcome to get here.
      • With allies likewe’ve got-like you-how can we fail?
        • That’s the spirit!
  • Select YEAH! five times.
  • End the conversation with that’s enough.

If you overhype Varren he will become over hyped and sit down. Voiding the achievement.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideStubborn
Complete the Crystal Dragon without accepting aid from the weaponsmith, armorsmith, or chef.

At the start of the instance you will meet 3 NPCs who offer you help for the fight ahead. Instead of interacting with them, ignore them and proceed to complete the instance without their aid.

The chef you will see on the way into the main area, the armorsmith and weaponsmith are ahead of you before entering the great hall.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideElectrophobia
Complete the Crystal Dragon without taking damage from environmental hazards.

Throughout the fight a variety of attacks need to be avoided such as swelling AoE rings, cracks and crystal shards. There’s a lot going on so try to avoid as many AoEs as you can. This is a long fight so there’s a lot to avoid. The one AoE that you really need to watch for are the purple cracks on the ground. These are the ones that void the achievement. It’s good practice to avoid as much as possible to make sure you don’t hinder yourself.

Take extreme care while channeling the crystals as it’s possible for the cracks to hit you here.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideCrystal Circuit Racer
Finish the attack on Kralkatorrik in under 15 minutes.

During the last fight of the episode you need to beat the instance within 15 minutes. You’re given plenty of time, though making mistakes will cost you dearly.

I recommend bringing a friend or two to help push some of the crystal recharge phases later on. It’s very easy to become overwhelmed by the amount of enemies you need to deal with.

Note: This will only be rewarded to the instance owner.


Thunderhead Peaks

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideA Different Kind of Shatterer
Break 10 soldiers out of Brand Crystals in the Deldrimor ruins.

There is a rift event in the Deldrimor Ruins where you need to defend or reclaim the ruins. Once the rift spawns various Branded Crystals will appear. Your goal here is to break 10 crystals in either the defense or reclaim event. If there are large groups of players these crystals will break quickly.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideOdds and Ends
Correctly predict tournament outcomes in the barracks.

Inside The Grotto you will find an organized tournament arena at Barracks. Speak with the organizer and pick a side to win. You need to pick the correct side 5 times to earn the achievement. This is random so just keep picking options until you win.

You can see the contenders before you place a bet and decide on who you think will win.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideDon’t Mine If I Do
Place mines to defend Thunderhead Keep from the Branded.

During the meta event that happens in Thunderhead Keep you will be given a task to place mines. You pick them up from the mine box and place them with the special action key. To earn this achievement you will need to place 25 mines during this event.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideSmash and Grab
Defeat the Wrathbringer in Thunderhead Keep

To fight the Wrathbringer you first need to complete the meta event that spawns at Thunderhead Keep. At the end of the event the Wrathbringer will spawn. Simply kill it and earn the achievement.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideNature Loves a Vacuum
Clean up oil spills on the ice floe.

During the dredge meta event, there will be a secondary mini event that you need to take part in to spawn the boss. There is an oil collection event that spawns after the third drill site repairs. Once this event is active collect and clean up the oil spill. You will need to collect 250 oil spills so this will takes multiple attempts to complete.

Interact with the pump to gain a special action key. From here skate around and use it to fill the meter above your head with oil. Once full, return to the collection pump to empty the vacuum.

Players will need to do this meta multiple times and without failure to collect the oil. You can also collect oil around the boss that spawns at the end of the event.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideOne Big Ugly
Defeat Volatile Oil Slug Sulypix on the ice floe.

This enemy only spawns at the end of the meta event in the Dredgeways. Once the oil meta event has completed Sulpix will spawn at Freedom’s Catchment. This boss dies quickly, so be ready beforehand and make sure you’re there when it appears. There’s a wind up for the event where a pit will fill with oil. This should give you plenty of time to get to the event and gain credit.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideSurprise Supplies
Retrieve all Zephyrite supplies, both lost and found, while escorting Pepperseed.

Pepperseed can be found hiding near a tree just west of Forgottten Falls in Hundar Pike. Once you find him, escort him to Corsairs Stand. After he arrives, wait for him to set up a second escort event.

Once this event starts you will need to help him reach the Deldrimor Ruins. On the way his dolyak will be attacked and drop supply. Your goal is to collect all the supply that’s dropped and re-supply the dolyak.

There are two main spots where supply can be picked up. The first attack area, and the second where griffons attack the group. In the second area supply is up on a rock. You should gain 5 supply from the first area, and 3 from the second. This will total 8 supply that you need to gather. After gathering all 8 the achievement will unlock.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideThe Master of Music
Practice the resonating crystal ritual with six Zephyrites.

Throughout Symphony’s Haven you will find Zephyrites that have practice crystals. Pick up the crystal and speak with each NPC. You will need to play a series of notes in sequence. After playing the correct notes and completing the required task with all 6 NPCs this achievement will unlock.

The sequences start with 3 notes, and finish with a 4 note pattern.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideHydra Rodeo
Rope and wrangle a hydra on the ice floe.

Around the Ice Floe there will be a champion hydra event that spawns. This event will normally spawn after the meta event. Once the champion ice hydra has spawned, inflict damage until it runs away.

During this time you need to catch up to it on your mount. When you’re in range a special action key will appear with a chain. Use it to wrangle the hydra and earn the achievement.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideStar Fishing
Use dredge fishing techniques to land a fish in a basket.

Near Revolution’s Heart you will find a dredge near a fishing hole in the ice. Your goal here is to use the star fishing item to lure fish to jump out of the water and into the buckets on the ice. This is a little tricky, but what you need to do is line yourself up with a bubbling section of the water and use skill 2 to lure the tuna.

The fish will jump out of the water and towards the bucket if you position yourself well enough. If the fish lands in the bucket the achievement will unlock. This may take multiple tries due to the random spawn of the bubbling water and having the fish miss the bucket slightly. The fish may still land in the bucket but not award the achievement. If so, keep trying.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideJunk Debunk
Help Tirabikkr look for a big nonexistent shiny at all dig-site locations.

Triabikkr can be found near Ironbridge to the south in Deldrimor Ruins. There will be an event marker near the bridge if you’re able to take part in this escort.

There are several locations that you need to visit during this event. Keep re-visiting Tirabikkr and progress the events until you’ve visited all locations. There are three locations total which you can keep track off under the achievement.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideExpert Archaeologist
Categorize 20 artifacts for Olaf and Elof in Deldrimor Ruins.

South of History’s End you will find an NPC called Elof in a small mining camp. There are two skritts stealing supplies from the camp. Your goal here is to catch the items being thrown by standing in the white AoEs. Then placing them in the assorted boxes next to Elof. You need to recover 25 items and stop the skritt from stealing them.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideThe Fugitive
Defeat Hessper Sasso without being caught in the Branded imprisonment. Must participate from the start of the event; eligibility is lost upon leaving.

This fight is extremely easy, or very difficult depending on the amount of players. The goal here is to kill the champion as fast as possible without being caught in the branded imprisonment. One trick with this enemy is to break the defiance bar and kill any minions it summons as quickly as possible.

Bursting Sasso down quickly will make sure everyone gets the achievement. Avoid as many or all AoEs to avoid issues.

This enemy is located at Melody’s Rest high above in Symphony’s Haven.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideTwo the Barricades!
Successfully defend all barricades from the Branded attack at Symphony’s Haven.

This event takes place in Symphony’s Haven near Corsair’s Stand. Complete the event without any of the barricades falling to earn the achievement. This is fairly simple but requires a few players to help with the defense.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideUnderworld’s Angels
Take a roller beetle from Dragon’s Claw and ride into a hole in the ice at the Dredgeways.

Starting at Dragon’s Claw you will find a small path just south of the point of interest. You will need the roller beetle for this, but your task is to jump two large gaps and land in a small hole in the ice below in Refiner’s Joy.

The jumps are simple enough, just boost before you hit each ramp. It’s extremely easy to see the path you need to take if you’re in a fresh area as you will see plenty of volatile magic marking the path you need to take.

 


Dwarven Catacombs

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideDwarven Room Raider
Gather dwarven plates from all the rooms in the Dwarven Catacombs

This achievement relies on you completing both map metas to gather to plate pieces for the first door. You can do this once a day, so multiple days and metas are requires to unlock all the plates.

Once you have the plate pieces, speak with Frodak in the Catacombs. He will assign you a random color to use the doors. Once assigned complete the mini puzzle areas to collect the next plate color.

Repeat this daily to gain access to the following rooms:

  • Sauna
  • Library
  • Gauntlet Room
  • Tomb of Marhan
  • Crystal Room

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideIt’s Getting Hot in Here
I mean, it is technically a sauna. Might as well get comfortable.

This is directly related to the Sauna room in the Catacombs. Once inside, players will need to remove their armor to earn the achievement. To gain access you will have to play with luck of the draw on which seals you gain from the other rooms.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideNo One Was Using It Anyway
Use the Light of Deldrimor to locate hidden dwarven treasure.

After speaking with Frodak he will give you a special action key ability. This ability will allow you to uncover hidden chests in the rooms throughout the Catacombs. Use the ability to show 50 hidden chests. This will need to be completed over multiple runs of the Catacombs, so be ready for the long haul.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideGrand Prize
Uncover hidden treasures in the resplendent dwarven treasure cache.

This goes hand in hand with “No One Was Using It Anyway”. In the last room you enter there is a hidden chest that you can uncover. You will need to open this chest 10 times, so multiple runs of the Catacombs are necessary. Open this chest 10 times to earn the achievement.

Note: It seems you can only open this chest once within 24 hours. Daily reset doesn’t seem to reset the previous chest activation.

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideThe Ironhammer Throne
Sit on King Jalis’s throne.

This throne is only accessible at the end of a rather tedious puzzle in the Dwarven Catacombs. Once you access the last room to claim your reward, sit on the throne to unlock this achievement. This throne is located at The Hammer’s Hoard. This will be the last point of interest most people earn due to accessibility.

Alternatively someone can portal you into the  room.

Note: This achievement is hidden from the main list. You will also have to complete both metas at least once to gain the plates to access this room.


Chasing Tales

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideJourneyman of the Forge
Acquire a full set of Dragonsblood weapons with Aurene.

To unlock this collection you must first speak with Forge Master Hilina. Doing so will allow you to buy “Explore the Lost Epics of Deldrimor”. This will then unlock the collection and allow you to buy stories from Hilina. The stories are recipes that cost 500 Volatile Magic and 5 Laurels for each recipe.

In total there are 16 weapons so you will need 80 Laurals and 8,000 Volatile Magic to buy all the recipes.

You will also need to buy the recipe for the Diviner’s Orichalcum-Imbued Inscriptions recipe at 500 Volatile Magic and 3 Laurels.

Important materials:

Guild Wars 2 All or Nothing Achievement GuideChasing Tales: Guidance
Find a way to enhance your weapons

Chest #4 is in the last locked treasure room in the catacombs. To access this chest you will either need a teleport, or complete the metas to earn the items to open the portal.

You will need access to the griffon, springer and newest mount upgrade to reach some of these chests. Without them there is no possible way to collect them.
