Bitter Harvest

This is a pretty short instance and I believe all of the achievement canbe done on the first run. However, Untethered is currently bugged andthere isn’t a good trick I am aware of to bypass this bug.

Line of Fire – 5 pts

  • Reward: 3 Crystalline Ore

For this achievement you just have to kill the two Mordrem sharpshootersstationed to the left that you would not otherwise kill if you justfollowed the story path.They are right after the first cutscene whereyou tell Kasmeer to scout ahead. Simply glide to them at the locatedindicated below and you should be able to reach them easily. Do not tryreach them from the side as it is not high enough for you to reach them.

Air Superiority– 5 pts

  • Reward: 3 Crystalline Ore

This should be done at end of your story instance as the game places acheckpoint near the top of the moving helix and you can just keep tryingthis achievement until you get it. It isn’t a hard achievement, you justneed to fall through the cracks and reach the bottom. Given there is atime limit of 10 seconds, you can deploy your glider maybe once or twiceif you feel that you are about to die on the way down.

Untethered – 5 pts

  • Reward: 3 Crystalline Ore

According to the description you just need to get to the top of themoving helix without getting hit by the orange circles that spawntendrils. However, this is not true. You must comply with the followingrequirements.

  • Do not die once in the instance.
  • Do not get hit by the orange circles on the way to helix.
  • Do not get hit by any of the mobs.

Basically what you can do is via one of the two ways. If solo, you needa stealth class (i.e. thief or mesmer). You start the instance and runall the way to Zoija without killing any mobs (the vine wall to Zoijaopens automatically once you arrive at the area). Do the part to freeZoija and Logan then invis your way up the helix, running around thevine walls and avoiding the orange circles.

If you don’t have a stealth class, you can get someone to clear the pathup the helix and you just run up after. Of course the same requirementstill apply such as not dying even once during the instance and don’tget hit by any of the orange circles.

Hearts and Minds

The achievements in this instance are fairly frustrating since you needto do this long instance multiple times and one of the achievement doesnot have a restart button so if you screw up you will need to redo thewhole instance over and over with unskippable cutscenes.

Dream Warrior- 5 pts

  • Reward: 3 Crystalline Ore
  • Perquisite: Completing the Hearts and Minds story instance one to unlock it.

To get this achievement, you will need to run this instance a total oftwo more times after the initial story version. You can only recruit twoallies per instance, forcing you to run the instance again for allthree.

Braham will trigger the Blighted Eir fight. The big thing with thisfight is killing Blighted Garm first and then Eir will try to reviveGarm. You will get the chance to do max melee dps to her when she isrezzing Garm. Eir has a sniper like attack that is easy to avoid if youare moving, a fire circle attack that applies stacks of burning, andGarm will try to immobilize you. Bring a ranged weapon and kite Garmdown while pay extra attention to the fire circles and use conditioncleanse to remove the stacks of burning and immobilize as needed. Swapto max DPS melee weapon for your class once Garm is down and Eir triesto revive him.

Canach will trigger the Blighted Canach fight. For Canach you willwant to bring some crowd control abilities like stun/daze/knockback tobreak his breakbar at end of the fight as the shield that the realCanach give you is bugged and doesn’t do anything to Blighted Canach’sbreakbar. With Blighted Canach you have to watch out for his grenades.The big yellow circles are his burning and bleeding grenades while thesmall ones are his stun grenades.

Caithe will trigger the Blighted Pale Tree, which is one of the mostannoying bosses out the three. Every 25% The Blighted Pale Tree willbecome invulnerable and summon adds that will walk to her. If you do notkill these adds and they reach her, they will give her a stacking buffthat increase the damage of the charged up attack that follows afterthis invulnerable phase. The charged up attack does have a longanimation so you can try to time that and dodge.

Past 75% the Blighted Pale Tree will uses her circular attack which isbasically an expanding orange circle that gets bigger and bigger as shegets lower in HP. Below 25% is the “enrage phase” where she will keepspamming her circular attacks while constantly spawning adds that willwalk up to her. Basically you need to kill her quick before her damageget buffed up too much that she one shots you.

Migraine- 5 pts

  • Reward: Crystalline Ingot
  • Perquisite: Completing the Hearts and Minds story instance one to unlock it.

You can unlock Extreme Mode by interacting with the orb next toTrahearne. This extreme mode is designed for 5 player parties and beprepared to spend hours on it. I would advise you picking Braham andCanach as they are much easier than the Caithe option as Pale Treerequires some really high DPS checks in extreme mode. If anyone in theparty dies during a fight, they can only watch from above and cannotrejoin the fight.

  • Blighted Eir: Brings lots of condition cleanse as the fire circles give you tons of burning stacks (5-80 stacks). The goal here is to burn Garm first and basically focus on surviving when Eir uses her fire circles. Once Garm is killed the first time, Eir will revive him to like 25% HP (sometmes Garm will regain full HP) and your goal is basically kill Garm quick forcing Eir to run back constantly to revive Garm. If you kill Garm fast each time, Eir won’t be able to use her fire circle attacks and you can just dps Eir when she revives Garm and repeat this like 10 times to finish the fight.
  • Blighted Canach: For Blighted Canach you need everyone to bring utility and skills that can break defiance bars. Some classes are really good for this like chronomancers (F3 shatter, gravity well, Tides of Time, Daze mantra etc) and Revenant (staff #5 skill). Blighted Canach has a really long breakbar in extreme mode that requires everyone to use their break bar abilities. Don’t even bother with standing behind Canach or use his shield in extreme mode as they do not work. Just focus on breaking Blighted Canach’s bars and the fight isn’t too hard.
  • Blighted Pale Tree: I have not attempted Pale Tree in extreme mode but from what I heard from other players this fight requires very high DPS check and need a good party composition that can dish out quick burst damage. The reason it needs high DPS check is because of the adds that will explode if they reach the Pale Tree and the explosion is map wide and undodgeable. Additionally, past 25% adds will spawn continuously and either you kill them fast enough or your party will take massive damage (info courtesy of Arrow/Ather).

Flights of Fancy- 5 pts

  • Reward: 3 Crystalline Ore
  • Perquisite: Completing the Hearts and Minds story instance one to unlock it.

This can be a pretty frustrating achievement since the Retry Mote onMordremoth fight does not reset the achievement so if you failed it youwill need to repeat the whole instance and watch the unskippablecutscenes again.

The requirements for this achievement is to not use the shield bubblethat protect the NPCs, not touch the ground, don’t get hit by rocks andavoid the torment orbs that spawn in the third flight phase.

There are three flying phases to the Mordremoth fight. The firstphase is after you killed the two Blighted NPCs and is fairly easy asMordremoth does not throw rocks at you. All you need to do is to makesure you get airborne in time by running (not jumping) into one ofthe updrafts that spawns. After that it is simply a matter of staying inthe air by using the updrafts until the air phase is finished.

For the second phase , it gets a bit harder as Moreremoth will throwrocks at you. I personally find a couple things that helps with this.Lean Gliding Techniques may give you enough airspeed to avoid some rocksbut it is a hit or miss. If you are high enough in the air, you can tryto drop and redeploy your glider when you see a rock coming.Additionally, flying a good distance away from Mordremoth may help asrocks will have a longer travel time and you may hit an updraft whilethe rock is traveling to you and avoid the rock completely.

Third phase gets interesting since not only Mordremoth will throwrocks at you, he will spawn spawn orbs in the air that will attempt todamage you. If you get hit by even a single orb, you will disqualify forthe achievement. The goal here is to completely avoid the area theseorbs are while dodging rocks from Mordremoth and hope you don’t falldown to the ground for whatever reason.

There is a way to “cheese” this achievement and get it done easy byhaving the person needing the achievement killing themselves before theflying phase of the Mordremoth fight and they can just chill while restof the group finish the fight.

    oh wow, this sounds terrible.

    i hope anet gets the bugs fixed at least. im not going to spend moretime in this last mission as long as i get circles spawning in theair etc.

    then i need 4 more people who are resistant to frustration. and aday off at least.

    • Ardenwolfe

      Yeah, tried six times to do the story . . . and each one buggedin some way, shape or form. Nothing like watching a rift spawnoutside the zone. 🙁

      • Some Body

        Rift spawning outside of zone JUST happened to me. Realfrustrated right now. I usually don’t let games get to mebut this is ridiculous.

        • Ardenwolfe

          Yeah, they’re telling me it’s a known bug. But I’ll bedamned if this didn’t happen to me twice so far. 🙁

  • Jason

    Hope someone has figured out how to do Untethered! I really wantthat Modrem Loop ASAP!

  • Dale Thornhill

    For unteathered i stealth the whole instance from begining to end onmy mesmer only actually killing 1 vine wall at the top of the helix.

  • Vekerur

    We found a cheesy (and horribly long) way to the flight of fancyachievement: you should die before the first gliding part and watchfrom above while others kill the boss. With my friend we did theachi this way. Hell boring kill alone the upscaled mordy, but notthat bad.

  • MatrixKage

    so about that untethered achievement, I got it the first time I didthe story. I just didn’t get hit. Didn’t realize it was bugged foreveryone. Wish I could tell you what I did that was so special. 🙁

    • Rjk

      Same here, got it the first time i did the story

  • Oh Yeah!

    I just bought plane tickets for playing in NA to avoid the lagingwhile gliding for Flights of Fancy achievement.

  • Panda Charr

    Extreme Mode is kinda bug-ish, since sometimes Eir’s breakbar won’tdepleted and you’ll end up with less than 5% burn each time sherevives Garm.

    • someone

      Simply keep focussing Eir and ignore Gram. I think the infinitebreak bar is intended. But if you have a few eles in group whoput lava font under Eir it works well without wasting damage onGram.

    • Some Body

      The whole instance is “kinda bug-ish”.

  • Poki#3

    Untethered right now requires you to not get hit at all, even bymobs, from the time you step on the Helix to the time you jump ontothe platform with the boss.

  • Brently

    For Flights of Fancy, there is a vine you can glide to. I got it bystanding on that vine whenever we had to glide up and 1 other playerglided around the boss to keep his agro. I don’t know if it was reqthe other player keep agro or not, but this is an option if youdon’t want to die and not help your team at all. . .

    • zz2m

      can confirm, this spot works when soloing as well. located onthe north side of the arena, neither the rocks or the orbs hityou if you stand as far back as the invisible wall allows

  • Juba

    For Flights of Fancy, just crank up your mouse sensitivity and keepcircling on yourself on top of one of the updrafts.

  • Meentje

    I still dont get the untethered achievement. Tried it multiple timeson my ranger clearing everything without getting hit by both vinesand mobs. I hope my pet was allowed to get hit…. am i doingsomething wrong?

  • Warden

    Played necro with minions to try to get Untethered achievement.Killed every mordrem and vine wall on both paths of the helixwithout getting hit by any tendril or mordrem, still no achievement.I happened to die to a mordrem sniper earlier in the mission beforelogan and zojja and I died once to falling damage during the helix,however when that occured I was not in combat with anything. I evenfell down on purpose after confirming that everything was alreadydead so I could climb up one of the paths to the top again, althoughthat didn’t work. I jumped on to where Faolain is situated, killedher as well without taking any damage from anything and still didnot get the achievement when the instance was completed.

    Either you’re not allowed to die AT ALL, having your minions takedamage disqualifies you or it is simply bugged right now. Hopefullyfor the latter it gets fixed sooner rather than later.

  • Ajis Kewer

    how to done\Untethered ? still bugged?

    • Hazka

      I think so. I just did the whole mission, cleared the entiretyof both sides, did not get hit by either vines or punishers andno achievement =/

    • Christabel

      not bugged anymore

  • Tun

    I got ‘Untethered’ alone with my ranger. Actually, you don’t have toclear both sides (I only cleared one side). I used longbow withtaunt pet tankers while climbing up; I did not take any damageincluding fall damage. At least for ranger pets, both vine andmordrem hits DO NOT disqualify the achievement.

  • Tun

    I also finished ‘Migraine’ with pug and wanna give some informationof extreme mode.\For Canach, you can also try condi build without breaking his bar(you can solo him in this way, though it takes long long long time :).\For the last phase battle of elder potato guy, aoe circle pops andFOLLOWS you periodically unlike the normal mode. So, always preparefor well-timed dodge ;).\Extreme mode was so challenging and fun for me. Hope you guys enjoyit too.

  • Some Body

    The achievements are challenging enough without all the damn bugs.Come on Anet, get it together. Couldn’t even complete the storytoday due to a bug (rift spawning in mid air and impossible toreach), much less an achievement.

  • Warden

    Tried the Untethered achievement again, this time I did not die asingle time during the entire instance, and from the second Ireached the helix, I cleared both paths of all mordrem and wallswithout taking damage from anything, finishing off by jumping on toFaolain’s area. Still no achievement. Played necro with minions out,so I’m thinking it’s that.

    If you managed to get the achievement on necro with minions, pleasetell me ._.

    • Tsar CUBE

      I got this achievement on Necro with minions… but it may havebeen fixed already.

  • Juba

    For Untethered, you can get hit by mobs and still get theachievement.

    Clear both paths and destroy all walls but do not get hit bytendrils AoE and never get killed not even once in the entireinstance.

    check the video below\

    • Dulfy

      Not true, there are plenty of people, myself included, who havedone the path many many times clearing both sides withoutgetting hit by the orange tendrils and didn’t get it. You justgot lucky on that attempt somehow and the bug didn’t trigger.

      • Fred Wang

        This is confirmed. Don’t get hit by tendrils (ok to get hitby the enemies), don’t die, run both sides as in the video.Not sure if it matters, but be the host (worked one time ina party where host got it), and I also soloed this myselfjust now.

  • Guest

    I completed Untethered on my Necro by just running past as many mobsat the beginning as I could. Completely skipped the ‘Kill theMordrem Archers’ task, which stayed there all the way until I killedFaolain.

    Only took out one side of the Helix. Didn’t get hit by any tendrilsbut that’s hardly a difficult task. Jumped onto the end platform anddone.

    • Guest

      Second tip – Flights of Fancy, when you fly into the air thereis simply a vine in the top right corner than you can stand atthe back of, where none of the rocks will hit you and the orbsdo not even move or attack from the center. Takes 0 effort usingthis way.

      • Keorl

        Your tip made me fail … during very first phase, whiletrying to reach a vine that can not be reached. It cansimply not be reached, there are invisible walls. I’d betterhave tried the legit way.

      • Guest

        I used this on my ranger, I was able to get on the branch bygetting boosted by the updraft right in front of it. Using alongbow, I was able to hit Mordremoth anywhere in the areaand also damage him during the forced flight phases.

      • Whith

        flew onto the vine, got hit by a rock while standing on it…

    • nightrunner

      Just got ‘Untethered’ achievement on 2nd try solo with an alt(Norn Reaper) in a rush (probably ard 20 mins. Blame Fallout 4:p):

      – did not die once throughout the story instance;\– cleared all mobs & vine walls on ONE path only;\– never get hit by tendrils and their orange circular AOEs onthe way up;\– got hit once by a ranged attack from a mordrem tormentor whileon the helix;\– never touched the water at the bottom once I was on the helix.I started on one of the paths and had cleared a vinewall, but Iover dodged over the edge and end up gliding/landing on thesecond path to start all over again;\– got the achievement the moment I landed on the platform wherefinal battle with Faolin took place;

      Thanks to tip from Juba & above Guest about no death in thewhole instance.

  • Miss_Lana

    I am unable to get to the Sharpshooters from where the guide says tojump from. Any help would be great. I have gliding tier 2, not sureif tier 3 is needed for the cheev.

    • nightrunner

      This is where I leaped off, which is on top of boulders to theleft of Dulfy’s location. Aim at the lower platform to the leftof the mordrems. Tier 1 is enough.

      • Miss_Lana

        Thanks a bunch! This worked. Dulfy didn’t choose the bestspot to take that screenie from.

  • Reji

    got Untethered achievement even though i got hit by a mordrem. justavoided the tendrils. thanks Dulfy <3 – Tiburron

  • Sheila Khoo Xue Le

    Things to note about Flights of Fancy:\-Mordremoth only aims the rock at the instance owner. That means,don’t host your own, join others.\-Even if the instance owner dies, Mordremoth STILL throws the rockat them.\-Or just do the vine thing. There is a vine at the north (a littleeast) above. There is an updraft launcher below. Just stand belowthere and get up and the rocks won’t hit you.

  • Darth Batman

    Here is how to actually get past the untethered bug. i just didthis, then my gf tried it with a guildee and we all got it doingthis on the first attempt. i had about 9 prior attempts at theachieve following what dulfy recommended, but this is what works. toget untethered. DO NOT DO ANYTHING in the story except destroyzojja’s pod, and kill the logan mobs/open logans pod. other thanthese mobs i didnt kill a single enemy in the entire instance. not 1mob on the helix. only went up 1 side. yes i did fall into the wateronce. dont even kill a single vine wall and mobs can hit you on theway up. when you jump onto the platform that you fight faolin on youwill get it. this worked for 3/3 people on the first time. enjoy

    • Sygg Shadowmoor

      I can just confirm this. Thanks a lot.

    • Rene

      If you get hit even by 1 mob, still fail…

      • Darth Batman

        thats not true. i got hit by so many lol. i dont think youcan die tho

  • mizst

    About Untethered: It is important that you are not downed/dead evenonce in the entire instance. It is not necessary to clear mobs onthe helix. I just did this by invisibility through the helix.

    https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/support/bugs/Untethered-Achievement/first#post5784290

  • Raizel

    “This is a pretty short instance”….meh…i felt it as one of thelongest….

  • Probably Bad

    About Untethered: You can do it solo without a stealth class, whenyou get to the helix you can bypass the mobs by jumping across tothe other branch of the helix. All the vinewalls can be run aroundtoo

  • jadu

    lmao, blighted Eir fight is hilariously bugged. before deemberpatch, she could get stuck when ressing garm, which made the task ofkilling her trivial. now, she gets stuck in her bow aoe attack whileat rift close part, making closing the rift completely impossible,unless you are more than 1. im starting to grow so tired of thisgame and its bugs. somehow Anet seem to think its totally finewasting peoples time like this.

    • Donney

      she is still bugged. earlier today my party of 5 had free dpsfrom 90% while she was ressing garm.

  • Ih4t3m0dr3n0th

    About “Flights of Fancy”. You cannot “cheese” this achievementanymore more (with the method described). You’ll lose the qualifybuff if you kill yourself in that phase.

    • Bruno Simonetti

      This information is not true. I just did it with 2 friends andone of them killed himself right in the start of the battle andstill got the achievement at the end of the battle. Maybeyoudidn’t get it because of the way or when you died.

    • Jacob Keller

      You have to kill yourself *before* the phase 🙂

  • Adzekul

    Another comment about “Untethered” … I just got this achievementsolo onmy Herald. It is not necessary to avoid being hit by mobs,although I would suggest you might still want to avoid the channeledAoE from Punishers. I did not die (important), did not take damagefrom the vine circle things on the helix (important) and theachievement was rewarded when I landed on the platform for the fightwith Faolin.

  • Harr

    To add onto the Achievement, Untethered, there is actually anotherrequirement. You can’t ever be in “downed state” because that woulddisqualify you from the achievement. However, I was hit multipletimes including the big orange hit by those hammer dudes, but it wasfine.

    On the other hand, Air Superiority, respawn is kind of a pain. Itported me inside a wall when I died, so I had to redo the story inorder to attempt it again. However, it still gave me the achievementin the end.

    • Painture

      You can use “/stuck” and after 30 seconds of inactivity you willbe teleported @ the beginning …better than redoing it

  • halo fan

    um is anyone else not able to get Air superiority i jump from thetop and dont hit anything to the bottom and i dont get theachievment

    • Rose Of Kali

      You have to be falling pretty much the entire way down, exceptdeploying your glider just briefly to land and not get yourselfkilled. Your timing may not be as good as you think – I knowmine never is.

      • Lurker

        I actually fell to death and still got the achievement soyou don’t need to worry about that part.

  • Rose Of Kali

    Untethered: easy to get solo without stealth. Don’t get hit by thevines, and don’t get downed at all during the instance – watch yourbuffs to make sure the qualifier is still there. I also avoided theground-targeted channel attacks, but this may not be required baseon some of the other comments.

  • caduceator

    Just finished Migraine with some buds, so I’ll offer what info Ilearned. Goes without saying that you should bring the bestfood/util buffs you have, as well as repair cans since you willlikely die a lot and you cannot re-enter by relogging like you canin fracs.

    For Eir, we found it more useful to just dps Garm and save the CCfor Eir, though if your group has excess CC or does better when youkeep Garm stationary then go ahead and do what works best. Afaik Eircannot be CC’d until she kneels to heal Garm so don’t waste it whileshe’s still running over to him. However, once her bar is brokenshe’s stunned for a long while so use that time to dps like hell.Also, the speed mushrooms make it much easier to dodge her fireattack so remember to use those.

    Canach put up less of a fight than I expected, the main thing is tostay mobile to dodge his various grenades and ranged attacks, andmake sure to res allies when they’re downed. As the article says CCis important to knock him out of his grenades-only phase quickly,don’t bother with trying to hide behind Canach or shield yourself.Speed mushrooms are pretty useful here as well for dodging stuff.

    Mordy is pretty similar to his fight in solo mode. It does some sortof retaliation/reflect attack that will throw a lot of confusionstacks on you if you’re not careful; it’s pretty manageable ifyou’re using melee weapons but projectiles will reflect a lot morestacks onto you that can down you quickly if you’re not careful.There is no visible buff on Mordy’s buff bar when it does this butit does lean back and roar, and my friend using different graphicssettings said she saw a purple ring effect around it. It always doesthis attack immediately after you turn Rytlock back to your side,there may be other concrete times but that’s the only one I know of.As always remember to use speed and adrenaline shrooms, and if youhave trouble getting up in the air during a flight phase rememberthat an updraft will always spawn on the friendly npcs.

    In addition, during the last phase of the Mordy fight where you haveto fight off the smaller adds, there is a repeating attack that will100% down you if it hits. An aoe circle appears under you and thecenter will expand, you must dodge right before it meets the outsideof the ring (can’t confirm/deny if aegis/blocking works). Use therift when you can (regular CC may work as well, can’t confirm/denysince I was dead by this time and couldn’t see well), then proceedas in solo mode.

  • lordtyr85

    I’ve done Migraine yesterday without dieing once and I think someupdates to this guide would be nice. People I find in the LFG stillthink killing Garm is the way to do it, but 99% of people do nowherenear enough damage. Most die in the first fire phase anyway. What Idid: As always, get a Necromancer. I made a Viper Reaper recently,and I brought another Viper Reaper from my guild, and we pretty muchduo’d this achievement without dieing once. We both kept hitting eirwith our scepter while running in circles around her. It takes maybe20 minutes, but it’s safe and still quicker than wasting a ton ofdamage on Garm only so he gets revived in seconds. The Random we haddied early on, but he was useful in the canach fight for bringingsome CC. In the last fight he was dead again most of the time.\Oh, and Reapers are nice for Eir because she targets minions first,so if one enters lich form and spawns the 5 horrors in the middle,Eir will shoot them and not the party. They die rather quickly, butit takes a lot of pressure off the players.

    Now for the other 2: Reapers have CC on warhorn, shroud 5 and LichForm 3. 2 Reapers that know this will be able to break the necessarybars. Also, they can complete the fights safely with the safety ofReaper Shroud (take the trait that enters it automatically).

    For swag, use Adrenal Shrooms. They are incredibly useful, but I wasthe only one that had them unlocked this time. I’m sure 2 reapersthat know the fight and use adrenal shrooms can finish eir in under15 minutes.

  • Doodles

    Was trying to do Untethered. I manage to avoid all mobs (usingstealth consumables) and orange circle all the way up to the top ofthe moving helix but got hit by Faolin’s orange circles and lost it.WTF?! D:

    • Andrea

      I did it today. No stealth is needed, just run up the helis,pass around the walls without destroying them and when you seethe circles move on the side. run past the enemies that are allmelee and go to the top. when you touch the floor where faolainis you get the ach.

      I also died multiple times before since I was trying to do theother ach. and couldn’t reach the 2 snipers, so it doesn’tmatter if you die. Remember that this guide is 9-10 months oldand not updated.

      • Dennis van Nierop

        I can confirm this. It does not matter anymore if you die inthe instance, you don’t have to use stealth at all. You canget hit by the mobs as much as you want, it makes nodifference. The achievement now works as is intended. Youcan even destroy all the vine gates if you want, it won’tdisable the achievement.

        Basically, all you have to do, is run up, avoid the orangecircles, jump to the Faolain platform, and you’re done.

  • Summer Raine

    I’ve completed all three of the Bitter Harvest achievements and allthree show in my journal as complete but the option to complete themand unlock achievements is still showing. What am I missing?

    • Dennis van Nierop

      The achievements/total mastery unlock per chapter. Both BitterHarvest and Hearts and Minds are part of Chapter 4. So in orderto get the complete mastery amount, you’ll need to complete allthe achievements under Hearts and Minds as well.

      The current 2/3 indicates you miss one Mastery Point, not oneout of three achievements for that specific episode. And themastery point you’re currently missing no doubt is the one fromthe achievement ‘Heart of Thorns Act IV Mastery’, which meansyou’ll also need to do all of the Hearts and Minds achievements.

      Hope it’s clear now.

      • Summer Raine

        Ah…ok. That makes sense. What I don’t understand is whyUntethered continues to show up as an option to complete nomatter which toon I use. That’s where I thought the issuewas but apparently it’s bugged. Thanks for clearing that up!

    • Die hard

      there are other achievements in that part of the storyinstance.,. you have to get the rest of them. along with thosethree

  • Christabel

    Untethered is not bugged anymore. I just have to go up withoutgetting hit by orange circles. Simple and easy.

    Untethered was a joke. Just stay to the side as you run up and skipthe mobs after each vine. Super easy no stealth required.

    Untethered – 5 pts.\“Do not get hit by any of the mobs” and “Do not die once in theinstance” = false. I died 4 times – 1 from being killed by mobs and3 from suicide. Got the achievement right after I jumped off thathelix.
