Achievement: Crushing Bones and Cracking Skulls. Is it bugged?
Return to board index
So I have to complete this last achievement to get the stone drake for the Glory of the Cataclysm Hero achievement.
In order to do this achievement you have to get Rom'ogg (first boss) to use his Skullcracker ability to kill ten of the elementals he spawns during "Quake." I tried this on a 120 character and couldn't do it because even with no gear on, she one-shotted him with a punch. So I got on my 110 druid. she worked ok (but still could only wear a tabard). After managing to get him to spawn 5 elementals (by sitting during Quake) I then hit him, got him down to 65ish percent. He put my toon in the chains, I got out of them and stood there not touching a thing. He cast his skullcrusher ability and it appears to have only stunned his elementals but not killed them. I ran out an reset 2 additional times and got the same result. They stood there momentarily with full health then de-spawned.
Has anyone else tried for this achievement recently (today is April 1, 2020) and what was your experience? Is this a game issue or am I doing something wrong
UPDATE.: So I scienced this out and you cannot do this with a character above 110 it appears. My 111 Kul Tiran Druid doesn't seem to be capable of doing it for two reasons. No. 1, the quake misses more often than it hits thus not allowing you to generate the elementals; and No. 2, when I do manage to get 5 elementals and Rom'Ogg casts his skullcracker ability, the elementals freeze momentarily then de-spawn. :( When I tried it with a 120 warlock, the quakes missed ever second time. My 105 Demon Hunter and my 110 druid were able to get the elementals to spawn appropriately but then for some reason oen elemental kept despawning on the second Skullcracker ability right before he cast it. Grrr. This achievement is ridiculously hard if you don't do it at level with a group of 5.
Darynda, I know it was bugged at least 3 years ago. Hoping it was fixed, I decided to try again. I took my BM hunter, killed the trash, removed all armor/weapon/trinkets/rings, and put my pet on passive. I sat, had my pet growl then go passive, collecting 5 Angered Earth (I set a timer to count down 2 minutes when the first Angered Earth spawned), I ran over an punched Rom'Ogg to under 67%, he chained me, I moved my pet with the Angered Earth to Rom'Ogg, skullcracker triggered and killed the 5 angered earth. I repeated the steps, confirmed I had an additional 5 Angered Earth up, skullcracker killed them (timer was still counting down 2 minutes) - I killed Rom Ogg - and did not get credit for the achievement. Three days in a row, the same result. I may level up a new toon to lvl 90 and give it another try.
I have tried this several times and read so many old forum posts about it... seems that for a while one bug was the elementals despawning or stunning when he swings instead of killing them. My problem, though, is that I cannot generate enough elementals (5 at one time) before they start despawning - even when I get one with every quake (by sitting). He quakes every 30 seconds, the elementals despawn after 2 minutes - do the math - can't get 5 up at a time. (I am doing this with a 120 completely stripped of all armor and weapons.) Do then, I did read at one point that each quake spawns an elemental for each member in the party, so I went in with another player and found this to be true. We got the first round of them taken out at 66% because of this, but then he did another reported glitch I've heard about and died suddenly for no reason - neither of us hit him. So. Back in again with both of us bare and hoping for the best. Sigh. I want my Meta Achievement and Drake mount! Argh.
