Overview

The first of its kind, Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire is a welcome breath of fresh air, bringing with it 45 achievements for us to collect during our quarantine! Most of these achievements will be collected in the new strike mission which doubles as part of the story, but below you will find a guide for everything you need to know!


caption


Steel and Fire Mastery | 20 AP

REWARD: You will receive the Steel Warbanner Skin for all your hard work!

Steel Warband Strike Mission | 132 AP

This mission is absolutely massive. Most of the achievements will be located within this instance, and will require several playthroughs to complete. Luckily, this mission is pretty easy and can be done with just a public group! To begin, simply activate the story in your story journal and speak with Aurene. From that point on you can access the strike mission in the vision pool.

Slavers Extinction | 16 AP

This achievement can be earned by defeating a whopping 1000 enemies in the Darkmire Delves section of the strike mission. They spawn both during the escort mission and during the boss fight, so with enough grinding you can complete the achievement.

Centurion's Right Hand | 10 AP

This achievement can be earned simply by completing the strike mission a total of 10 times.

Engineer's Apprentice | 10 AP

To earn this achievement, you need to simply pick up the ammo drops and scrap metal spread throughout the entire strike mission. To earn every tier of this achievement, you will have to pick up 100 supply drops. This can likely be done in four runs.


caption


Alpha Strike | 10 AP

This achievement can be earned during the boss of the strike mission, the Ancient Forgeman. During the fight, the Forgeman will "vent his heat" giving him a defiance bar. This bar can only be broken by entering the tank and using the harpoon action, which defaults to 3. Once the bar is broken, spam the heavy gun action which defaults to 1. After shooting him a total of 500 times while he is restrained, you will earn the achievement!

  • Note: Remember to pick up ammo that is laying around to use while in the tank!

Emergency Maintenance | 10 AP

This achievement is completed after the player has repaired the tank throughout the strike mission a total of 50 times. This can be done by picking up scrap metal throughout the mission and interacting with the tank.

Heavy Rival | 5 AP

One of the side missions that occurs throughout the strike mission is a competition to kill more enemies than Cinder Steeltemper. This happens three times throughout the mission, and to earn participation you need to kill more enemies. Doing this 10 times will earn you the achievement.

The Spotter | 10 AP

Another side mission that occurs throughout the mission is Vishen Steelshot requesting help in sniping enemies. Normally a small jumping puzzle is required to reach him, but doing so and sniping at least one enemy will grant you participation in the event. Doing this a total of 25 times will grant you total completion.

  • Note: Talking to Ryland at the beginning of the strike mission and having him point you towards Nicabar Steelweaver will get you started on the achievement and help you know what to look for.

Artillery Specialist | 10 AP

Hilariously, this achievement can be earned by killing 200 enemies with the tank throughout the mission. This can be done in literally whatever manner you wish. Doing so will grant you completion.

  • Note: Be sure to pick up ammo laying around the battlefield to use once inside the tent.

Field Medicine | 10 AP

One of the side missions that occurs periodically throughout the strike mission is a collection quest. This can vary from grubs, blossoms, snow, and mushrooms that are found in the surrounding area. Participating in this event 15 times will earn you completion for the achievement.

  • Note: Talking to Ryland at the beginning of the strike mission and having him point you towards Nicabar Steelweaver will get you started on the achievement and help you know what to look for.
  • Note: Participation for this event is counted by contributing at least one of the items.

Forged Steel | 1 AP

This achievement is super easy to complete, and if you're reading this then you probably already have it. Completing the strike mission once will grant you completion and a Steel Warband Weapon Box!

Mission Challenge: Horde of Foes | 5 AP

This achievement is earned by completing the strike mission with the Horde of Foes challenge mote activated. This simply creates a ton more enemies to fight, but it is very doable.

  • Note: This can only be activated at the beginning of the mission and with a premade squad.


caption


Mission Challenge: Powerful Foes | 5 AP

This achievement is earned by completing the strike mission with the Powerful Foes challenge mote activated. This simply makes the enemies stronger throughout the battle, but not the final boss. This is doable on its own, but can be very difficult in conjunction with Horde of Foes.

  • Note: This can only be activated at the beginning of the mission and with a premade squad.


caption


Mission Challenge: Tank Escort | 5 AP

This achievement is earned by completing the strike mission with the Tank Escort challenge mote activated. This mote adds a condition that if the tank falls, the mission fails. As previously stated this mote is easily done on its own, but very difficult with other motes active.

  • Note: This can only be activated at the beginning of the mission and with a premade squad.


caption


Mission Challenge: Final Boss | 5 AP

This achievement is earned by completing the strike mission with the Final Boss challenge mote activated. This makes the boss significantly harder, but can be completed with a competent group. This can be very challenging with any of the other motes active.

  • Note: This can only be activated at the beginning of the mission and with a premade squad.


caption


Moving Up the Ranks | 5 AP

At the end of every run of the strike mission, the group is rewarded a rank. To earn this achievement the party must finish the mission with a final rank of Imperator. So far what we know is that this is based on time, amount of player deaths, and amount of side missions completed. Doing this with a premade group is recommended.

Onsight Procurement | 10 AP

This achievement is completed by killing slavers, picking up their guns, and shooting other slavers. What fun! While inside the ruins in the later half of the mission, the enemies will drop their guns for your use. Firing the gun a total of 100 times will earn you the achievement!

Spa Day | 0 AP

After beating the boss of the strike mission you deserve some rest! Heading back to the beginning of the mission and using /sit in the nearby hot spring will earn you this achievement. Below is a map of where to find it.
