Mantis Pose talk to Gorrik @ [Obstacle Course]
Thank you so much for the guide ^^
Hmm for me Mastery requires all 18 achievements. I don’t see a 19th. Did something get removed?
Maybe you missing the hidden achievement
Thanks much for the guide! Fyi, Invervention is misspelled, should be Intervention
For Intervention and Derring-Do, don’t interact with Aurenes empowerment, it disqualifies you for the achievements.
This is true, should add it to the post.
