Getting started[edit]

Achievement is in the Mad King's Labyrinth. Get to the Northwestern waypoint:

  • Bloody Prince Door (map icon).png Bloody Prince Doors (with purple and red mist) will send you to the northwestern waypoint.
  • You can use Griffon or Skyscale from the Northeastern side.
  • Doors from other activity zones like Mad King's Raceway can take you there.


  • From the Northwestern Waypoint:
  • Head to the north edge of the island and get on the platform moving down.
  • Follow the staircase to two more platforms.
  • Ride the second platform to the 3rd.
  • Jump from 3rd platform to 4th.
  • Jump down onto the chain connecting to the floating "ship".
  • Talk to Bloody Prince Thorn.

Alternate method[edit]

The target notch is visible at the top of the image.

This method requires Gliding and a Springer with High Vault, but bypasses almost all of the puzzle.

From the northwestern waypoint, go as close to the exit door as you can without triggering it. Above the door and slightly to the right, there's a notch visible in the cliff face. Mount your springer and jump to that notch. You will be dismounted, but should be able to get onto the rocks with a single jump. Walk over the rocks and you'll see a dead tree branch sticking out of the side of the cliff; it's a bit to the south of where you jumped, and on the side facing toward the "ship". Jump onto the branch, then glide toward the ship. Advanced Gliding should let you get all the way onto the ship, people at a lower Mastery level may need to land on the chain and walk along it. Speak to Bloody Prince Thorn to finish the achievement.
