Blood and Madness Achievement Guide

October 15, 2013 - 3:40pm -- Lewis B

In this guide we provide you with a breakdown of the Blood and Madness achievements and how to complete them. 

Please note that to progress the story your aim is to complete A Sweet Friend. Considering there aren't 13 achievements available at the moment, you have to complete Halloween dailies in order to achieve this (Pumpkin Carver, etc). It will take an additional 3 days worth of dailies to reach the meta-achievement.

A Sweet Friend

Complete all 13 Achievements to unlock this meta-reward. Please note you'll need this meta reward to progress the story.

Containment 

Head to Nolani Academy in the Black Citadel and speak to the NPC who will let you into the dungeon. As a linear path, simpy follow it to its end. Once you meet Bloody Prince Thorn, simply follow Tassi's instructions until you're able to send him running by throwing Candy Corn at him. 

 

Bonebreaker

Head to the Mad King's Labyrinth (simply use one of his doors out in the game world) and head to one of the doors inside the Labyrinth marked purple. It will tend to spawn a Labyrinth Horror that you and the many others have to kill. 

Please note that to enter the Mad King's Labyrinth you have to interact with his "doors" out in the game world". A good location to enter is Queensdale.

Candy Corn Crusher 

Similarly to Bonebreaker, head to the Mad King's Labyrinth and defeat the giant Candy Corn. Be aware that he fires massive-damage dealing area of effect projectiles that will kill you in one. Just stay back and kill him from a distance.

Please note that to enter the Mad King's Labyrinth you have to interact with his "doors" out in the game world". A good location to enter is Queensdale.

Something Good to Eat

Whether you buy the Trick or Treat bags from the Trading Post or grind them from enemies, just eat 50 and you've completed the achievement. 

A Stomping Good Time

Equip a Mad King finisher and kill 20 players. You need to finish them off yourself for this achievement to be completed. 

Shut the Doors

Head once again into the Mad King's Labyrinth and follow the nearest commander. You'll need to close a total of 50 doors, which is incredibly boring. Thankfully it's pretty painless inside the maze. 

A Royal Tradition 

This achievement is only available from the 30th October.

Death to the Undying

Similarly to Bonebreaker, head once again to the Mad King's Labyrinth and kill the Skeletal Lich. 

Please note that to enter the Mad King's Labyrinth you have to interact with his "doors" out in the game world". A good location to enter is Queensdale.

Beaten Bloody

You need to kill the Bloody Prince in under 1 minute. Just get a full party before entering the instance and you'll kill him in no time. Be sure to stand in the Candy Corn puddles to hurt him.

Upset Stomach

While standing next to the Bloody Prince, quickly eat as much Candy Corn as you can in order to be sick on him.

Lunatic Inquisition Regular

Participate in Lunatic Inquisition 8 times.

Daily Achievements

Pumkin Hacker

Head to Lion's Arch to carve them. There's one near the Mystic Forge, Bank, Fountain, Crafting Stations and Trading Post. Make sure you hold Ctrl down to see them. 

Candy Craver 

Simply eat 50 pieces of Candy Corn, whether you buy it on the Trading Post or pick it up from enemies.

Jumping Mad 

Complete the Mad Kings Clocktower.
