Welcome, fellow achievement hunter.

Ever since the introduction of the rewards track, each expansion has always brought us a handful of achievements to complete in order to gain more rewards: while some of them are relatively easy to complete, some others may take some time or a proper set up. In case you're wondering what's the best way to gain all that sweet sweet XP locked behind Voyage To The Sunken City's achievements, do not fret, as we have the answer you're looking for!

In this guide we'll focus our attention on the Sunken City Demon Hunter achievements and provide at least one way to complete each of them so that you'll be able to get closer to the end of your reward track.

Novelty: starting from the Voyage To The Sunken City Achievement Guides, we're introducing the Related Achievements criterion, which basically goes to show if a certain achievement has a strong relation with another one (be it from the same class or from the Neutral section), and therefore if they are beneficial for each other from the completion point of view. All in all, it says if you can hit two (or more) birds with a single stone!

Disclaimer: as always, all expansion achievements can be completed in Ranked Standard, Ranked Wild, Arena, Casual & Heroic Duels and Classic - Casual Standard, Casual Wild and Tavern Brawl will not count towards your hunt! Moreover, we'll always take Ranked Standard as the default game format for our strategies: if we happen to have some strategies or particular interactions belonging to other modes to highlight, we'll be sure to specify it.

Here are all the achievements we're going to complete together:

  1. Ini-bots, Roll Out! - Reduce the Cost of 75 Mechs with Seafloor Gateway.
  2. Shark Bait Hoo Ha Ha - Deal 20 damage in one game with Mecha-Sharks.
  3. Spelling Bee - Add 10/30/60 spells to your hand with Commander Sivara.


Sunken City Mage Achievements Overview

Pretty solid achievements set for Jaina: just like with other classes we've already covered, these achievements will ask you to just play the game rather than to set up unlikely scenarios or test your luck with frustrating RNG rolls.

  • Both Ini-bots, Roll Out! and Shark Bait Hoo Ha Ha literally ask you to play Mech Mage, one of the archetypes players are looking forward the most due to obvious reasons.
  • Spelling Bee relies on how good value/Control/Naga Mage will be, but triggering Commander Sivara's effect 20 times doesn't seem impossible to us, especially thanks to another card in the Core Set.

How to Complete the "Ini-bots, Roll Out!" Mage Achievement

Easy peasy achievement: play Mech Mage until the notification appears on the screen's corner and you can redeem your XP points. In all seriousness, there's not much you can do other than trying out the class' new toys and optimize your deck so that each Seafloor Gateway will discount many Mechs.

However, if you really want to complete Ini-bots, Roll Out! as quickly as possible, there's a way. Go to Wild, create a deck with two copies of Seafloor Gateway, two copies of Starscryer, two copies of Frostweave Dungeoneer and fill all the remaining spots with Mechs.


How to Complete the "Shark Bait Hoo Ha Ha" Mage Achievement

Considering that Mecha-Shark deals 3 damage after you summon (and not just "play") a Mech, you'll need to:

  • Summon 7 Mechs if you have just one Mecha-Shark on board.
  • Summon 3 Mechs if you have 2 Mecha-Sharks on board.
    • 3 and not 4 because the first Shark will deal 3 damage after you play the second one, resulting in 17 damage left for the achievement.

Now that we did the math, it is time to see how we can actually pull this off. To be fair, you may as well just play Mech Mage (just like for the Ini-bots, Roll Out! achievement) without worrying too much about Mecha-Shark's damage output, and we're sure you'll eventually get there, but we are perfectionists, so here's a deck for Standard and one for Wild!

Starting with Standard, the most reliable combo is Mecha-Shark into Mecha-Shark into Mothership into two 3-Cost Mechs.

  • Play the first Mecha-Shark.
  • When you summon the second Mecha-Shark, the first one will deal 3 damage.
  • When you play Mothership, the Sharks will deal 3 damage each.
  • Trade and destroy Mothership into an enemy minion.
  • After Mothership dies, it will summon two other Mechs.
    • Each of the summoned mechs will trigger the Sharks, dealing 6 damage each.
  • 3 plus 6 plus 6 plus 6 is 21, which means sweet XP!

Now, two copies of Mecha-Shark and a Mothership cost more than 10 mana, but luckily for us we have a Mech tutor and discounter like Seafloor Gateway, which you'll need to use to discount at least two of the three Mechs involved in this combo.

  • We included a couple additional Naga for some Neutral achievements like School Teacher, but if you don't own them or you're not interested in completing them, just omit these cards and add something else.

Wild, on the other hand, has a couple tools that will make Shark Bait Hoo Ha Ha's completion as fast as in Standard (if not faster) . In particular, we're referring to Mechwarper (crazy good, especially in combination with Seafloor Gateway) and Replicating Menace (basically 4 Mechs in one!). Here's what you should do.

  • In order for this 4-card-combo to be doable, you'll need to discount at least one of the 4 mechs involved.
    • If you manage to discount more than one, you'll be able to complete the achievement even before turn 10.

How to Complete the "Spelling Bee" Mage Achievement

We can basically sum up this achievement as "Play Commander Sivara in your deck and trigger its Battlecry for 20 times": not that bad, right? Moreover, there's Brann Bronzebeard, which will double the amount of stuff that Sivara will add to your hand for an even faster completion.

We decided to include spells that either stall, draw/generate other stuff or are cheap, but you can include anything you want!
