During the event a "teach" action pops up at the lectern. The item is acquired once the event ends. You answer some questions correctly from the podium and kill awakened along the way.

The achievement is complete when the character receives damage from an Angry Chicken.
Acrophobia Acrophobia Get to the very top of the wall in Blazeridge Steppes. Turn south from Waypoint (tango icon).png Lowland Burns Waypoint. Use your Springer to jump up to the top of the wall (including the floating pieces) at Monument Grounds to acquire the collection item.

This is a rather tricky jumping puzzle that will need some practice:

  • To jump far enough for the final jump, hold the forward motion key ("W") while charging the jump.
  • If you try interacting with the collection item while still mounted, you may fall down while dismounting. Dismount at the center of the pillar before interacting.


  • Astraphobia is fear of thunder and lightning.
  • Glossophobia is fear of public speaking.
  • Alektorophobia is fear of chickens
  • Acrophobia is fear of heights.
  • While at the top of the wall in Blazeridge Steppes, the Shatterer will occasionally fly just over the heads of the character.
