However for the other 6, talk again with Agent Brandubh and select the dialogue option “I lost the location list”, now you will receive a new mail with detailed locations at Wayfarer Foothills (you won’t get the green circles) so go there and start looking for them.

  1. As smal hint, Secret Contact Part 2. If you made the Achievment in 2013 the Agent send you the letter with the locations , but there are no dead drops.. Doing Part 1 of the Achievment (Diessa Plateu) is enough to get the points.

  2. Could you please add pictures where to find the refugees? Im struggling and wiki isnt helping either. Unless im doing it wrong..

    • There is two screenshots with the refugee camp locations, one at hoelbrak and one at black citadel, the refugees are there look their name

  3. can you replay the flame and frost episode after completion of the full episode as i missed 1 of the ore for the ready ore not achievement

  4. please fix the achievement order in the map path. Even better is having a single map with all targets on different colors per different achievement. So it will be much more easier to find everything walking only once, instead of walking 3 times.
