DOCTOR'S ORDERS (Vet Scalecaller Peak)



The achievement reads "defeat Plague Concocter Mortieu in Veteran Scalecaller Peak with four living group members all suffering from two of Mortieu's infections simultaneously." Previously I thought to myself, well that's easy we just burn the boss after we get poisoned without curing ourselves but it's a little bit more detailed than that.

So a few things to keep in mind for the first phase of the fight

1) No one can die, if someone dies, you have to reset the fight for the achievement.

2) You have to kill the imps that spawn to make Jorvuld, the friendly NPC, create a cure.

3) Not a single person can touch the cure AOE Jorvuld puts down for you or you have to reset the fight. We had to reset
the fight many times because of accidentally touching the cure so I would highly recommend just staying away from the middle of the room.

Otherwise, keep pushing the boss's health so you can kill him immediately once the second phase of the fight starts.

Once you get to the 2nd add phase, you need to prioritize killing the stranglers before any other add as you taked increased
damage in your poisoned state, then you keep your healing up and be very careful to not get hit by the boss's fire lines.

Once Jorvuld finally finishes his second cure, you can kill the boss and that's how you get the Doctor's Order achievement.

    DAEDRIC DEFLECTOR (Vet Scalecaller Peak)



    Basically to break this achievement down, no one can die to one of the three poison cones that emanate from the statue of Peyrite during the fight.

    If someone dies to a cone, you have to reset the fight in order to retry for the achievement.

    Next, we need to take note that this achievement can only be achieved on hard mode as we do need to trigger hard mode by
    reading Zaan's Ritual Scroll, so the difficulty of the fight definitely ramps up so for those of you who have gone through nightmarish runs for pledges in Scalecaller Peak with pug groups, I highly recommend going in with three others who can coordinate with you for this achievement.

    Okay so do hard mode, don't die to poison cone, but the tricky part with the Daedric Deflector achievement is this juggling of
    the avoidance methods.

    At certain points throughout the fight based on Zaan's health, a wipe mechanic occurs which is all three poison comes coming out from the Peyrite statue, to avoid getitng killed by this mechanic, each of the four people in the group needs to take a different avoidance method every time.

    The moment you get stoned twice or you take ice or the geyser or shield avoidance method twice, you need to reset the fight.

    Now some people say that this achievement is easier with just 3 people rather than 4 but in this video we did it with four people.

    And while high group DPS is always preferred, it's best to note regardless of your DPS, you need to focus the adds first and then during this focus on staying closer to the statue to avoid getting the larger end of a poison cone while you take care of mechanics.

    This achievement can be quite challenging and will test your situational awareness but it's very rewarding once you get it.

    Just to show you guys how we did it, we basically assigned a rotation per person in the group as to which avoidance method
    to use for every wipe phase. You guys can write or type this down if you'd like and simply use it as a template to help your group get this achievement.

    OATHBREAKER (Vet Falkreath Hold)



    The Oathbreaker achievement reads "While fighting Cernunnon and his oath-bound, banish all three of the spiritmasters' souls within five seconds of each other throughout the fight in Veteran Falkreath Hold.

    Basically you just have to, on at least two occasions depending on your group DPS, kill these three bosses and carry their souls which appear as faintly lit circles to the glowing ritual pads. Only one person can pick up one soul, so basically assign three players to three pads for them to bring the souls to.

    Five seconds should be plenty of time especially with the strat shown in the video, you can't stack the ice mage onto the other two archer and melee bosses believe me I died trying!

    You want to make sure you stack either the melee boss onto either of the ranged bosses and make sure all three die within relatively the same timespan so you have plenty of time to carry the souls to whichever pads without them reviving before the time is up.

    Don't be confused when the achievement doesn't pop up during the fight as it will only pop up after the fight.

    FRIEND OF THE TREES (Vet Lair of Maarselok)



    In the fourth episode of ESO Achievement Hunter we take a quick look at "Friend of the Trees", a veteran mode Lair of Maarselok achievement one can get.

    The Friend of the Trees achievement reads "Defeat Maarselok on his perches without defeating any Azureblight Lurchers in Veteran Lair of Maarselok."

    Your group should carry on with the fight normally and have your tank take the Azureblight Lurchers that spawn (only two will spawn) and tank/kite them around until the end of the fight.

    If one dies, you will need to reset the fight.

    EPIC UNDERTAKING (Vet Falkreath Hold)



    In this 5th episode of our series with the help of Kodiak (twitch.tv/kodiak9oh7), we take a look at "Epic Undertaking", a veteran mode Falkreath Hold dungeon achievement one can get from the Horns of the Reach DLC pack.

    Now the achievement reads "While fighting Deathlord Bjarfrud Skjoralmor in veteran Falkreath hold, have your group cleanse
    15 corpses within the span of five seconds."

    This achievement took our group a lot of tries because we simply couldn't figure out what in the Vivec's underwear was going on.

    How we weren't getting 15 corpses, how simply waiting while passively killing the two stronger adds that spawned every phase wasn't working, did I leave my oven on, so many questions plagued our minds until a nice fellow on the Twitch stream gave us a little hint.

    Instead of killing the two adds that spawn every phase, your group needs to keep every single archer and melee enemy alive,
    they die very very easily to damage over time Area of Effect attacks so as you can see in this video, we're minding our positioning, taking the boss' health lower as we go in preparation to finish the achievement.

    We also have someone else, the healer, slot a taunt to take the boss away while the tank stacks what they can on another side of the room.

    Now the boss and the adds once they accumulate can hit pretty hard, so whoever has the taunt on the boss if it's a DPS or healer doing it, needs to roll dodge the heavy attacks.

    I think it's probably easier in terms of add management and not getting one shot by multiple things at the same time for the tank to take care of the adds and a healer or DPS take care of the boss. At least this is how we did it fairly easily.

    Eventually, because we really really sucked at doing a headcount, we made sure to wait a considerable amount of time and decided it was probably alright to kill everything.

    Once we did, we had to make sure to fulfill the second component of the Epic Undertaking achievement which is to make sure we cleanse at least 15 of the corpse souls within five seconds of cleansing the first.

    Due to how we stacked the adds, it was fairly simple for us to relay to each other when to use the synergy to cleanse the corpses.

    Unlike many other achievements that pop up after the boss fight, if you do this achievement correctly, the Epic Undertaking achievement should pop up before you kill the boss.

    These are really useful, thanks a lot for making these! :smile:

    A small request: Could you please write the names of the dungeons and achievements above the videos for each post? It would make finding them a lot easier by using search terms.

    ROOT OF THE PROBLEM (Vet Moonhunter Keep)



    Pretty straightforward achievement to get, just need to roll dodge the roots that come out (visual cue is the Lurcher stomping with its foot).

    ON A SHORT LEASH (Vet Moonhunter Keep)



    Once you understand when the wolves Ary and Zel come back into the fight and keep a comfortable pace with the werewolf add spawns, the achievement is pretty easy, Potentially you may need your tank to run 3x Swift jewelry, otherwise try just Charging Maneuvers first with any class or non-class ability that grants additional movement speed.

    If a single person gets even tapped by either Ary or Zel, you must reset the fight.
