I went Elder hunting on Sunday, finished off the dungeon elder's on Monday. I've finished all of the achievements for this seasonal except 1:http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=1281I just, just can't seem to get this, and I really don't know what to try anymore, I tried the haste buffing thing (I read somewhere), I tried at diffrent times of the day, and only try in SMC where lag is supposed to be least hassling. But I ALWAYS miss it by 1 rocket on the timer, by fractions of the second.I'm from South Africa and 'good' latency for me is 500ms, bad is 1200ms+. Am I basically screwed out of this achievement because of where I live? Will I not get my grape-juice proto drake because of 1 @$#% rocket??If anyone out there has any (positive) advice, please please please dish it out, I'm really at my wit's end here.

in other events are some achievement much more harder for your latency like torch jungling :-)Just try to use some zone with lowest population on your server, like Darnasus and see if it will be better. The time when is lowest number of online ppl is 5:00 morning server time (my experiences).If it will be fail even so, change your password for something like opkl987, choose someone who has better conection and you can absolute trust him, let him do that achievement - it should be possible easy at first try and change password back to yours. (but this advice would Blizz dont like:))
