I was able to use Totem of the Wurines and Feral Guardian Channeler (Divine Barrier clickies) to successfully dodge both the blue spores and the yellow spores. I didn't bother testing on the red, and was afraid to risk the green one.

Greetings all,

In an effort to get everyone their All That Glitters achievement, 6 people will be assigned to loot 4 crystals based on Raid Attendance.

If you are not assigned, you are only to loot based on what your class absolutely needs to perform your role on the raid for that night.

Players who are chosen to loot for the achievement, it is your responsibility to make sure you get your crystals.

- Delivery in Full
-- Let all of the workers deliver their crystals to their supervisors.

*Strategy Changes for Achievement:
- Do not kill any workers. Allow them to deliver all crystals to Supervisors.
- No one is allowed to get All that Glitters achievement when doing this achievement.
- Supervisor Kill Order: Red, Blue, Green, Yellow
- Crystals will be generated by blowing up the vibrating adds.


It is best to try for Crystal Crusher when doing this achievement as well, but will abort and kill adds if raid gets overwhelmed.

Should rangers pick up two crystals, so they can get both green and yellow protection?  Without yellow, we can't toss the second round of Auspice of the Hunter.  The last mini dies just about the time that we would start casting the MGB round of Auspice.

Blue     Allows you to cast detrimental spells.
Green     Allows you to attack with weapons.
Yellow     Allows you to cast beneficial buffs.

IMO, as you are a DPS class, I would prioritize blue and green. If you can get the yellow, great. If not, we can toss out some extra COP4's.


KEEP IN MIND -

In stage 1 when we are killing the workers, each color spawns a total of 12 workers. Each worker drops 2 crystals. 48 workers X 2 crystals each = 96 crystals.

We have 54 people in the raid. There are not enough crystals in stage 1 to supply the raid with 2 crystals unless we crash the vibrating adds into the center pillar.


As a side note:

When our DPS for the night is strong, we need to be careful to not kill down multiple supervisors at once. We lose too much time to gather extra crystals for folks that are relying on those vibrating adds to get their 2nd and sometimes even 3rd crystals. Even more so when we have people looting extra for the All That Glitters achievement.
