How to get the Blackwood Pathfinder achievement in ESO 
  • Check your achievements: Verify that you haven't already ticked the needed achievement on the character you wish to play. This can be done by navigating to the Journal, selecting Achievements and looking for the Pathfinder achievement under Exploration.
  • Team up: This is a team effort and finding the locations required for the achievement is always more fun in a group.
  • Constant vigilance: Getting the Pathfinder achievement is essentially a sightseeing expedition but this doesn't mean that there are no dangers along the way. Be sure to pack your best armour, weapons and consumables.
  • Don't forget about the Daily Quests: The rewards for getting the Pathfinder achievement are formidable but don't forget to also loot and harvest to snag some bonus goodies.
  • Rinse and repeat: The Blackwood Pathfinder achievement can be earned by each player character so feel free to go at it as many times as you can.
