High-level Warrior Duties

The achievement description can be very vague, especially if you’re seeing it for the first time.

To clarify, the following duties count toward the achievement:

  • Extreme Trials
  • Unreal Trials
  • Normal 8-person Raids
  • Savage 8-person Raids

This means Expert-level Dungeons or 24-man Raids will not count, even though you may think of those as “high-level” duties.

Some examples of eligible duties include The Bowl of Embers (Extreme), Containment Bay Z1T9 (Unreal), The Final Coil of Bahamut – Turn 4, and Alexander – The Soul of the Creator (Savage).

You can also do the duties listed above while unsynced if you’re determined to get the achievement as soon as possible.

Otherwise, you can just queue as a Warrior and do Trials and Normal Raids duty roulettes or your Wondrous Tails to slowly work on the achievement.

Once you get the achievement, click on it in chat or open your Achievements menu, then select the Warbear Horn reward to claim it.

Afterward just open your inventory and use the horn to unlock the Warbear mount. If you want to see how this fuzzy yet murderous bear looks in-game, check out our gallery below!
