Dispelling Shadows Bosses 10Achievement points
Close the portals opened by the Shadow Behemoth in less than 20 seconds.How do you pronounce Aatxe, anyway? Boss Achievement 10Achievement points


Achieved by destroying the thirteen portals the Shadow Behemoth summons in less than 20 seconds. It will rear its body back for a few seconds and then thrust its head forward as it summons the portals, which is an opportune time in the fight for all players to attack it without being damaged. Once it is finished summoning, it will start attacking again and the portals start summoning monsters from the Underworld. This provides a moderate resistance as you try to gather everyone together to destroy the portals in the allotted time period for this achievement.

It's a good idea to leave a group in place around him so you don't miss it, because if the players have to run to the portals to destroy them, it's not possible to kill them fast enough. To have the best chance of hitting the achievement, get everybody (at least 3/4 of those in the area) into a big circle around the spot where the Behemoth shows up. When the portals show up for the first time, blast them as fast as possible. NOTE: Some can remain in the circle to take down the other portals later, but there are a lot of enemies that show up, so take care.


  • You will not know if you succeeded in obtaining the achievement until after the event is completed.
  • The round of portals that you need to take down to spawn the Shadow Behemoth will not count for this achievement. The round of portals after he spawns are the ones to go after.
  • Players need to be on map when the portals are destroyed to get the achievement.
