Notes[edit]

  • Explorer achievements tier descriptions don't follow the usual Title Case conventions.
  • There are one of two different icons used on the message sent on completion of a map area. The completed renown heart, and the personal story green star, instead of there being one standard icon used.
  • A checklist of all areas for the Explorer achievements may be found here.
  • Bottoms Up: The Champion summons vines that you need to kill that drop the nectar.

Trivia[edit]

  • Deserted Coast and Thorn Hollow were originally listed in the Dragon's Stand Explorer achievement, even though they did not exist in the playable maps. [1] They were later removed from the list.
