    Original Sinister

    Since the patch that fixed conditions, condition builds have been growing in popularity and with the raids they are a major part of the meta, especially Engis, Rangers and Guardians. In raid sparticularly this means full Sinister/Viper to keep toughness down, and the only way to achieve this is completing at least 2 parts of the LS2 story achievements, as well as enough SW grinding to get another few pieces

    Some folk got these earlier, but myself and a few others unlocked the story episodes but did not get all the achievements (Rav, Alyss are 2 i know). I think it'll be more fun to get these as a group - so jot down below if you are interested and times in the next week or 2 that you might be about to group up for these so we can plan a couple of runs

    I should be on Tues, Wed and Thurs evenings this week about 8:30-9 plus after missions on Sunday. Mon, wed and thurs next week

    I'd like to do these!

    For those who don't know: a sinister amulet and accessory are available from the SW merchant for 1000 bandit crests and 10g each after you've completed LS2 (not the achievements). For the other accessory and the two rings, you need the achievements.

    I'd want to target the specific episodes that give those three pieces - not so worried about the rest.

    I have random achievements from those episodes, so I'd be up for getting the rest.


    Can you get the achievements if your character hasn't played the episodes (i.e. if someone else starts the instance)? My ranger is the only one who's been through them all and that class might not be the best for all achievements.

    You can only get them on char who already finished that episode. It's a bit pain in the ass.

    Also talking about perfect classes. I think Daredevil was born for doing those achivs. 90% of them involve not being hit by stuff, those dudes are perfect at avoiding.

    I should be able to do most evenings this week with a bit of notice... thanks for organizing this Ohara!

    Saph, that's useful to know, need to check how many badges I have - probably not enough considering I haven't really farmed SW that much.

    Count me in, I'll be around most nights. Plus I think I have 4000 badges so I can get those too, I wasn't sure if they were dups of the LS ones or not.

    Almost. To clarify you get a sinister amulet and one ring (not accessory) by doing LS as Saf says-
    "Echoes of the past" and "Point of no return" will get you the two accessories.
    Tangled path will get you the other ring
    I think (but am not 100% sure) that if you buy a second Veratas seared ring with bandit crests and 10g that you can infuse one and that you can wear the infused and non infused versions together as they are no longer unique. This will save doing the tangled path cheevos at the expense of one infusion slot so not ideal if you are planning super high fractals on your condi character.

    No they are not dups but you can only wear one amulet so you only need the extra one if you are going for Luminescent armour

    luminescent armour (achievement) is worth going for since it's a free piece of ascended armour, that costs practically nothing.

    So the good news is that there's another way to get sinister rings (& viper's too!)
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/...ded_ring_drop/

    The bad news is that it seems to just be an RNG drop from raid bosses, so no hope of working towards this one.

    Rav and I did a few of the Hidden Arcana achievements tonight - not that bad if you have a few of you and you can repeat them if you need to.

    Despite disabling all boons the last achievement bugged out on me so I still need to run the whole thing again if anyone wants a go. Also need to do the arcana Obscura ones that are good in a group, so shall put out a call when I am on at some time next week.

    Thanks to Noaru and monkey tonight (plus Rav last month)for helping me through a few of these. Only 2 to go (rock dodger and dancer in the dark) to get my full set of Sinister trinkets. Necroing the thread as happy to help any guild folks out who need these, definitely easier in a bigger group.

    Was just thinking about this this morning...strange. I really would like to finish all the achievements. I've done everything in LS2 except a few of these.
