Sleeping with the Fishes
Find and solve the puzzle in Freemarch.
  • Light all the Aqua Lamps

This puzzle is located at (5988, 6141) on the lake floor of '''Lake of Solace''' in Freemarch. Light all of the aqua lamps to complete this achievement. The person to light the final lamp will be the one that will get the loot.

The lamps periodically spawn and de-spawn, just position yourself in the middle of the circle and click on them to turn them on. Once the entire ring is lit, you will receive a loot box with {{riftitem|quest|A Rusty Key}} inside, and a chest spawns in the middle of the ring of lamps. Open the chest to receive {{riftitem|quest|A Dusty Sack}} which will yield an uncommon, rare, or epic quality item related to your level and some gold.

If you complete the puzzle again, you will receive {{riftitem|trash|A Dusty Sack}} which will yield at least one trash item worth 1 silver each.

A change corrected the breath bar for this quest. When it hits zero, you drown. If you manage to solve the puzzle in time you will receive a buff that will let you breathe underwater so that you have enough time to finish looting.

This is actually closer to the "E" in lake, at 6000, 6140.

Doing this simple Achievement alongside the quest Servant of the Fathomlord makes it even easier. You get a swimming buff from that quest to get to your point quicker on the map. If you do it hastily enough you can even make it back to shore before losing the swim buff.

The video is wrong. They reset when you start drowning.

Approx: 6000 6140
Recieved: Fine Pauldrons of the Warfront
Definately worth the effort!

Another interesting fact> After you finish this achievment feel free to search the lake for about 5 minutes with out fear of drowning. After 5 minutes the breath meter will reappear.

Just did this with my Barnacle Encrusted Pendant. Easiest blue ever. Got Seer's Mantle of the Mythical.

I heard from someone that these puzzle achievements are level capped (which made me cry because I didn't know about them until much later in my leveling) but I decided to check this one out anyway on my level 47 warrior and VOILA! It still gave me the achievement and I also received an epic BoE pair of pants (granted, they are for level 30). :D
