WoW: Glory of the Raider achievements full guide

updated November 3, 2022


These notable achievements are an almost classic challenge for World of Warcraft that we have known since the Wrath of the Lich-King expansion. Glory often provides a fresh look at familiar boss fights with the help of unusual mechanics and easter eggs. Also, every achievement

Wrath of the Lich King Achievements

Glory of the Ulduar Raider Achievement

First and one of the most legendary Glories ever. The most of achievements you can obtain just by nuking the boss. But for some cases, you need to know specific tactics.

  • Iron Dwarf, Medium Rare – your main problem will be your high damage, so you need to take off all your armor and weapons. Also, you can die and get a debuff from Spirit Healer to prevent random one-shots. After that, just start the boss fight, wait for engineers to fix all 4 harpoons, and let the dwarfs kill everybody. After this watch as every enemy aggroes on you and wait until Razorscale goes enrage (you can see “Razorscale goes into a berserker rage!” in chat). Finally, trigger all harpoons, and punch the boss until her health drops below 50%. And wait some time until Razorscale kills all 25 dwarfs by Flame Breath;
  • Heartbreaker – like in the case of Iron Dwarf, Medium Rare, you need to control your damage. Strip down or die to decrease your DPS, start the fight, shot the boss down to 75%, and say “Hello” to his heart. After this, just quickly kill the heart and boss;
  • Firefighter – don’t forget to push the big red button before starting the fight;
  • I Love the Smell of Saronite in the Morning – pull the boss but don’t touch vapors. You can drink a cup of tea or text your friends until 8 vapors transform into Animus. Kill this monster and defeat the boss.

After all parts of Glory completion, you should get an achievement and two mounts Reins of the Rusted Proto-Drake and Reins of the Ironbound Proto-Drake at once, which will be added to your collection.

Cataclysm Achievements

Since WoW WotLK we have two versions of this achievement – for 10 and 25 people raid. In today’s realities, there is no difference between them, so all tactics will be identical to both versions.

  • Full House (25 player) – you need to kill all mobs and taunt the boss. After that, just chill and wait, until Lady Deathwhisper summons 5 waves of adds, and after their appearance kill the boss (all adds should be alive and well);
  • Once Bitten, Twice Shy (25 player) – you need 2 weeks for achievement completion. The first time, just kill the boss, but without one-shots to protect yourself from bugs. On the second week start the fight and wait for the debuff Essence of the Blood Queen followed by the words: “Know my hunger!” Now you can blast her down and get achievement;
  • Portal Jockey (25 player) – if you can heal the dragon, just cast spells from the start of a fight. Or don’t touch adds and use some Heavy Shrouded Cloth Bandage;
  • Been Waiting a Long Time for This (25 player) – just avoid traps, don’t kill the adds, and wait for 25 stacks of a debuff. And don’t forget to kill the Lich King after all.

After completion of 10 player raid, you should obtain  Reins of the Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquisher. Reins of the Icebound Frostbrood Vanquisher is your reward for 25 player raid.

Glory of the Firelands Raider Achievement

This Glory looks very easy. But at least one achievement needs good reflex, preparation, and training. Or another player in your party.

  • Not an Ambi-Turner – target all your DPS into the right foot;
  • Bucket List – pull the boss and run with him through all Firelands locations;
  • Only the Penitent… – in a party with your friend achievement will become much more manageable. But if you want to do it solo, we have some advice. First – use the macros /kneel to avoid Kneel to the Flame! cast. Start the fight near one of the crystals, and use Gunshoes, the blink, or similar skills to click another crystal quickly. If you manage to click on two crystals in 4 seconds and avoid cast, the achievement will be yours.

Now you can explore Azeroth and all other worlds with Corrupted Egg of Millagazor phoenix.

Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider Achievement

You can fully complete this Glory solo. Just note some critical moments to make it even easier.

  • Taste the Rainbow! – you need to pull the boss and wait about 5 minutes for confidence. After Yor’sahj the Unsleeping tries all combinations, he must die;
  • Deck Defender – concentrate all your attention on Twilight Assault Drake and try to kill everybody approach, /target macros will help you. Important: this task is impossible without range spells;
  • Maybe He’ll Get Dizzy… – just run on left and right sides, kill tentacles and stay in tentacles holes to avoid rolls. You will obtain achievement after completion of the encounter;
  • Chromatic Champion – kill Deathwing 4 times, starting from every Aspect’s platform. Yes, you need at least four weeks for that achievement.

Now you can enjoy your personal little Alexstrasza with Reins of the Twilight Harbinger.
