    Default "Star Offense" Achievement

    "Kill three carriers of the Fang of Regulos in a single match of The Black Garden."

    I have been trying off and on to earn this achievement for weeks now, and have been driving the struggle bus all the way. Each BG match I play we are either facerolling or getting facerolled, and neither situation is ideal (we either aren't giving up the fang or can't kill their carrier through their team's heals).

    For a kill to count you need to have the last hit on the carrier (confirmed through cheevo tracking). I would be fine with this, except for one detail--if fang damage kills them, you get no kill credit. Between diligent healers and increasing fang damage it is almost impossible to get the killing blow before the fang does, even if you're the only one attacking the carrier. I can usually get one last-hit in a match, or two in a good one, but 500 points has proven to be too short of a time to get three. An oh-so-simple fix to this would be to give kill credit to the most recent attacker in the case of a fang damage death.

    The first purpose of this thread is to vent frustration, and the second is to ask for advice. Is there anything I (rogue, usually NB win WFs) could be doing to make an easier time of this, aside from grabbing the damage power-ups and hoping for the best?

    Roll a Bard and use virtuoso to spam cudas on fang carriers.

    Did it easy as palawarlord. I think that's just the key find some tank hybrid spec to carry but still do damage. It's probably got harder to do since the healing stalemates tho.

    Pay attention to the fang tick intervals and save your burst to hit right after the tick damage.

    If you really want the achievement, you could try doing something as obnoxious as taking the fang yourself and bringing it to the opposing sides spawn just to donate it and then do the 3 kills there. There's a good chance the other team won't take it back to middle and the match will take ages to finish.

    you need to reroll make bard or mage and in low lvl pvp you can get it easily. GL in the lvl60 pvp where half of the teams are healers and the other half Warlords.
    PvP in RIFT is good only @forum.

    Does that work? I bard all the time for raids, never though to use it in WFs though. Could do a Distress/Jeopardy/Fury combo maybe, will need to try that.

    some classes have abilities that hurt themselves (warrior has a planar attunement ability that does so).
    so....
    pick up the fang, kill yourself. repeat twice more.

    I got this one a couple weeks ago, was the last one I needed for lord of war. I honestly been trying this achievement for a few month's (off and on) when I had the chance to play pyro. Got to use your best burst spec. Seemed like as I got better gear, my chances increased on getting the kills. Helps to be the most geared dps on the team in some cases I think.

    Use a high burst spec and try persuade a friend to queue with you running a heavy CC spec.

    Time your burst with your friends CC on healers and hope you get the KB
