Ice Try – 3AP
Story Instance: The Invitation
To earn this achievement, you need to find Fraenir after he obscures himself by turning into a blizzard and hiding behind one of the randomly-selected ice pillars at the edges of the room (not the three in the center), and must be approached within five seconds.
The simplest way to accomplish this is with a full party; have each party member stand near a pillar and attack him at range so that they can quickly run behind the pillar if he hides at theirs. Solo players may also attempt this method, but will have to contend with high odds of him not hiding at their pillar. As a solo player it is recommended you do this with a high mobility class and react fast.
