Amidst Ourselves - Among Us Achievement and Raid Boss Mechanic in Patch 9.2



Among Us References

There are many social deception games, but during the Summer of 2020, Among Us became extremely popular. The game involves a group of crewmates, who must determine who the imposters are amongst a group of players, while completing simple tasks around the area. The imposters try to protect their identity and avoid suspicion, while killing off the crewmate one-by-one.

Achievement Reference

With Patch 9.2 datamining starting on the PTR, The Lord of Dreads encounter is the 9th boss in the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid in Patch 9.2. The meta achievement for this encounter in Patch 9.2 is Amidst Ourselves, a clear reference to Among Us!

Amidst Ourselves – Defeat the Lords of Dread after finding and completing one simple task during Infiltration of Dread in the Sepulcher of the First Ones on Normal difficulty or higher.

What task will players have to complete? Will the “imposters” have to do something as well to earn this achievement?

Among Us Boss Mechanic

Even if you’re not doing the achievement, it seems like all players will need to deal with the Infiltration of Dread mechanic in the raid, which seems inspired by Among Us and social deception games.

2 of your raid members are Imposters, and you’ll need to find and defeat them!

  • Infiltration of Dread: Upon reaching 100 energy, Kin’tessa causes both dreadlords to infiltrate the essences of players for 30 sec. If they are not found and their disguises are not defeated during this time, they erupt forth with Shatter Mind.
    • Paranoia: Whilst the dreadlords are infiltrating mortal essences, players are unable to trust each other and are hostile to allies. Standing near another player will reveal a hint about their essence.
      Players suffer 1 Shadow damage every 1 sec. Defeating the dreadlords’ hosts will end their charade.
    • Moment of Clarity: Players can experience a moment of clarity, revealing to them the essences in which Mal’Ganis and Kin’tessa are hiding. The dreadlords will feed false information to their host in an attempt to obscure themselves.
    • Shatter Mind: Mal’Ganis and Kin’tessa rip forth from their deception, stunning all players for 3 sec. Additionally, this causes players to suffer 5995 Shadow damage every 1 sec until they die.
    • Shadow Mastery: Each cast of Infiltration of Dread generates an application of Shadow Mastery, increasing Shadow damage done by 10% as well as the size of Slumber Cloud.

This Infiltration of Dread ability seems to turn everyone against each other, with the two Dreadlords hiding inside two members of the raid and turning them into unknowing Imposters. The raid then has 30 seconds to defeat the two Imposters, ending the phase. To help determine who the Imposters are, players will periodically get information about the Imposter’s essences and can seemingly cross-check that information against each player by standing near them. However, the Imposters will be unknowingly sending bad information as their information has been tainted by the Dreadlords!

We’ll have to see exactly how this mechanic works when this encounter is seen on live servers, or during the chance that this encounter is PTR tested. Will you trust your friends? No matter what, you’ll have to communicate with y our raid in order to find out who the Dreadlords are hiding in.
