Something’s Not Quite Right – guide
Successfully accuse and expose 8 boggarts in a row during the World Quest “Tough Crowd” in under 20 minutes without guessing incorrectly.
The achievement Something’s Not Quite Right is only available when the world quest Tough Crowd is active.
Go to the Star Lake Amphitheater at /way 42.6, 44.6 and watch the dialogues of the Audience Members.
Boggarts say one of the following voicelines:
- What’s a bard? Can you eat it?
- Hmm, I find this shallow and pedantic.
- Strange. The larger creature should just consume the smaller one. Take its power!
- I hope this one doesn’t have any monsters in it.
- Excellent use of metaphorical allegory. Yes.
Simply click the appropriate Audience Member to accuse them and defeat the boggarts. You break your streak if you guess incorrectly, so in case of doubt it’s advised to err on the safe side and wait before accusing.

Ardenweald’s a Stage – guide
Participate in the following plays at the Star Lake Amphitheater:
- Argus, the Unmaker
The Ardenweald’s a Stage achievement is part of the larger Adventurer of Ardenweald achievement. The achievement requires you to complete all 7 events in the Star Lake Amphitheater.
The reward for Ardenweald’s a Stage is the Silky Shimmermoth mount.
Players with the Night Fae Covenant must direct their Anima Conductor the the Star Lake Amphitheater, then speak to Dapperdew at /way 41.6, 44.8 to summon one of the 7 rares.
Everyone can participate in killing the rare; but you do need someone with the Night Fae Covenant to activate it.
Dapperdew summons a different rare each day. This means that Ardenweald’s a Stage takes 7 days to complete. You cannot obtain the Silky Shimmermoth mount in one day.
Toss A Seed To Your Hunter – guide
Toss a Faintly Glowing Seed at Gwynceirw, The Winter Wolf, during or after combat with the mire boggart.
To complete the achievement Toss A Seed To Your Hunter you have to find a Faintly Glowing Seed, then throw it to Gwynceirw during the Rotbriar Changeling fight.
First, find a Faintly Glowing Seed in the Shrouded Mire area. They look like purple shiny plants. I found mine at /way 64.9, 23.5, but they’re all over the place.
Once you have a seed, summon the Rotbriar Changeling by speaking to Daffodil at /way 65.7, 22.5 .
Gwynceirw is the centaur-like NPC who tanks the Rotbriar Changeling for you. Select him, open your bags and use your Faintly Glowing Seed on him to get the achievement.
