Eligible Achievements

Kaineng Blackout – 3AP – 1MP

This achievement is earned by defeating the final boss of the map meta-event for first time.

The Kaineng Blackout meta-event occurs every 2 hours all around the map.

Check the timer here. I will organize this mini-guide in four steps.


  • Step 1

This first part could be considered the “pre-event” and requires players to stabilize 7 zones around the map by completing events on each one, this has a 10 minute limit. Each zone have a progress bar with multiple events going on. Once all the 7 zones are stabilized players will be able to progress to the next step.

The events are very easy to find as they show with red indicators on the map.



  • Step 2

Next are the Lab events, Nahpui and Sunjiang Labs are under attack and players must split to assist both NPCs. There is 2:30 minutes to prepare and each event has a limit of 10 minutes, these can’t fail or the meta fails.


  • North Lab: Nahpui Lab — [&BLoMAAA=]
    • Event: “Defend the technicians while they redirect the power!”

  • South Lab: Sunjiang Lab — [&BJ0MAAA=]
    • Event: “Prevent Jade Brotherhood from stealing batteries”

  • Step 3

Once the Labs event are complete, each NPC will have an escort event, Yao at North and Mizuki at South. Players need to defend them while they are locking down the breaker boxes. This has a 16 minute time limit.



There are 3 zones to capture on their path and these zones must be defended as well, so a few players must stay behind while the others follow the escort. The meta fails if any zone wasn’t defended.



  • Step 4

Once the escort ends, everybody converges at the Central Power Station – [&BDENAAA=] and there are 2 minutes to prepare before the final fight.

Once inside the Power Plant, the event “Destroy the corruption before the system overloads!” starts where players must fight against the Jade Behemoth with a time limit of 15 minutes.



The boss mechanics to know:

  • Spark Absorption: When the boss gains a CC break bar, they will start absorbing jade sparks, this must be interrupted as soon as possible because the boss gains a buff called Power Overload (damage output increased).
  • Jade Projectiles: Often the boss will shoot random projectiles at the ground which might persist doing AoE damage on the area, but specifically one of them will have a circle warning animation and right after the boss will jump on it to create a shockwave attack.
  • Shockwaves: Other shockwave attacks will happen as well when the boss jumps on their location, jump above them or dodge through them to avoid massive damage.
  • Replicators: At some points in the fight, the boss will gain a jade shield and replicators will spawn. These replicators are also shielded and players must defeat the swarmers around them to weaken the shield. Once all the replicators are destroyed, the boss will be vulnerable again.


Ocean-Fresh Sashimi – 3AP

Help Sakda and Miju complete their deliveries in New Kaineng.

For this achievement you need to complete the event called “Escort Miju as they race against the clock!” at two different locations, north and south.

The event has a a cooldown of 10 minutes and usually when it’s about to start you can see four NPCs named “Sakdas Delivery Employee” at the location. If it’s not happening at one location check the other.

NOTE: This event currently has reports of bugs on different map instances, the NPC shows the event start icon but if not activated instantly the NPC will bug out. If you don’t succeed try to join another overflow.
