Upgrade Your WoW Account: Death From Above Achievement
Now that you’ve got the list of the achievements required to obtain the Glory of the Firelands Raider and, in turn, to obtain the Corrupted Egg of Millagazor to upgrade your WoW account, we turn our attention to achieving these tasks in the best way possible. The first achievement on our bucket list is Death From Above.
Upgrade Your WoW Account: Death from Above
“Only kill Cinderweb Drones while they are atop the web canopy during the Beth’tilac encounter in Firelands.”
By now, you should be used to the fight and you should know that the Cinderweb Drones are the large spiders that spawn throughout the fight. As the achievement description says, you cannot kill any of these giant spiders below the web canopy and have to deal with them on top of it instead.
Cinderweb Drones have energy that is steadily consumed while they are under the web canopy and will immediately head up once it is fully diminished. When that happens, they siphon energy off of Beth’tilac herself, forcing her to cast Smoldering Devastation earlier than what would be normal. This then forces you to go back down to the bottom floor, giving you less time to damage Beth’tilac in order to push her into the 30% burn phase.
What you can do in this instance is that you can dps some of the Cinderweb Drones but not kill them at the ground floor. Leave them at a health level that would require only a single attack to kill them. When they do run out of energy and head back up the web canopy, you can then easily one shot them with any attack, ensuring that Beth’tilac does not cast Smoldering Devastation too early.
This is, of course, a tactic reserved for characters, alts or otherwise, that aren’t at level 100 or those that aren’t geared enough to do this achievement. But in the case of the Heroic and Mythic Raider in Warlords of Draenor, there should no issue with this achievement.
Go along the fight as normal but ignore ALL Cinderweb Drones and just burst down Beth’tilac as fast as you can. You are still given the credit for this achievement because the only stipulation is to NOT kill Cinderweb Drones while under the web canopy.
By far, this is the easiest achievement to do in the meta achievement of Glory of the Firelands Raider. The rest just get harder from here on out. Stay tuned for next time when we deal with the other achievements so that you can get your Corrupted Egg of Millagazor and upgrade the market value of your WoW Account.
