Details

This is the limited time event achievement added for the Cataclysm Pre-release Events.

EVENT WENT LIVE NOVEMBER 1st, 2010

To get this achievement, whether you are AllianceOfficial alliance mini-icon or Horde Official horde mini-icon you need to have had at least one each of the buffs ( Fire, Water, Earth, Wind) since the event began on November 1, 2010.

These buffs are not required to be active at the same time.

You obtain one of the buffs when you take part in sealing an elemental rift.

These buffs last an hour unless dispelled.

You can have all the buffs active at the same time.

You will be able to loot Mysterious Objects (Daily) if and only if the zone is level appropriate for your character.

Extra Details

Rifts will be appearing all over the game world. This includes Northrend AND Outland.

Elemental Rifts lose health when one of their elemental creatures is killed. If the rift has 10 Health, killing 10 of the elementals it spawns will kill/close it.

These Elemental Rifts are level specific in relation to the item they drop. So, for example, all level 80 characters will have to kill rifts in Northrend locations to get the daily quest item that spawns when the rift dies, while level 60 characters can kill rifts in Silithus, Western Plaguelands, or other level appropriate zones that spawn rifts.

If you are not in a area specific to your characters level when a rift appears then, even if your character does see the rift, the rift will disappear as your character approaches that particular Elemental Rift.

Rifts have a 60 minute respawn timer and a 10 minute despawn timer (i.e. if not killed within this time from appearing, it goes away for an hour).

Rift Loot

Each time a rift closes, it leaves behind a loot-able floating item called Mysterious Device. If your character level is appropriate to the area then the Mysterious Device gives a daily quest called Hammering It Out that rewards some XP and/or gold.

Buff Details:

Earth Powered - Each melee attack, ranged attack, harmful spell or healing spell has a chance to heal you for 2% of your maximum health.

Fire Powered - Each melee attack, ranged attack or harmful spell has a chance of engulfing the target in flames, dealing X damage over 15 sec (scales with level). Stacks 5 times.

Water Powered - Each melee attack, ranged attack, harmful spell or healing spell has a chance to increase your Energy, Rage, Mana or Runic Power gain by 15%.

Wind Powered - Each melee attack, ranged attack, harmful spell or healing spell has a chance to increase your haste rating by X for 10 sec.
