How to do the Realm-Portal Spiker?

I was in the neighborhood [the Desolation] and saw that there was a guild doing the Maws of Torment meta, so I joined in...couldn't figure out how to spike the portal, though, before the thing ended. How do you do that?

    Your time window is short for it. You need to collect a realm residue (walk over the sparkly yellow things dropped by the mobs at the portal) which allows you to pick up a spike and use it on the portal. Once the boss appears, it's too late. You'll prob only get 3-4 spikes in.

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    Ok...I was so busy fighting that I couldn't get to the residue in time. I'll look for the residue first next time. Thanks a bunch!

    It’s easier than it used to be, but it is still easy to miss out. You will be chipping away it for a while.

    I’m still trying to get the drinking fountain achievement in Istan done. It almost never registers for me

    I don't have the temperament to collect achievements...I like to go at things full blast 'til I get them done; Anet doesn't like that, though...so they throw as many roadblocks, barriers, snags, and snafus in your path to slow you down as much as they can.

    Anyway, good luck on your drinking fountain achievement...and thanks again!

    some deso ahciv is not so solid .. These achiev have some not good behavior: you can do it only per one event in one location in one place, 100 times ..
    So many player skip that.

    want solid balance ? - play chess.
